“Mezza Bar and Restaurant”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

I am only reveiwing the restaurant, NOT the hotel as we did not stay there but we visited the restaurant many times. This restaurant is part of the Alkan Hotel on the main road and is recently under new management. It is run by Stevie and a fantastic team of bar staff who provide night time entertainment. The food is great, and this restaurant is great for families, couples and group holidays. We ordered fresh calamari, garlic mushrooms and a shish kebab which was lovely! Portion size was also great. We came to Turkey as a couple and this also became our regular night spot. Cocktails, fish bowls and other alcoholic drinks are really good value for money and you get proper measures of alcohol! (i recommend the honey moon special cocktail) They also offer non alcoholic cocktails which are just as nice. There is a good range of music and all of the staff are really friendly which is nice compared to some people in the busier part of marmaris. Even if you are all inclusive (which we were) you will find something youu need out of the hotel such as breakfast. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting marmaris, we will certainly visit mezza when we come to turkey next!

Stayed in this hotel for 1 week. We took a package tour - so package with this hotel was one of the cheapest. The hotel is renowated not a long ago, so everything is in fine condition. Friendly staff, nice meals. 50 m from the sea, a little bit far from Bar Street

We enjoyed our stay at the Alkan hotel, a few minor issues that people need to be aware of however.
Jimmys Bar - definately a Marmite place, we chose to have a drink there on a number of occasions however Jimmy kept on at us that we should eat there, in truth we probably would have done had he not constantly hassled us howver there were other places where the food was excellent (Kibele, Seaside, Taj Mahal & Mandarin) that we simply went back to those places rather than be hassled by Jimmy.
Air Conditioning - When we were in Turkey it was in the high 30's, the first couple of dates the aircon was ineffective any it was only after a couple of complaints that it was repaired, that said we still had to move the bed to underneath the unit (which is by the patio doors rather than the middle of the room) to get the full benefit.
Sunbeds - At Alkan I am afraid the english have become the new germans. For the duration of our stay people had towels on sunbeds which they kept for the whole of their holiday, not only is this unfair to other residents and most of them remained unused for long periods of time but we came across a situation where when there was an almighty storm one afternoon and the staff had moved the towels under cover a couple of residents were complaining about "where have our towels been moved to", unbelievable !!
The rooms are large, the bathroom massive, one complaint would be that the fridge is too small to accomodate much, however on the whole this is an excellent hotel which was clean and the staff on the whole friendly.
Given the situation with the sunbeds we simply went onto the beach and used the beds which are free when you get drinks/eat at the bars.

Just returned from another stay at the Alkan Hotel, Marmaris with my sister. We had a great time staying B&B. The rooms were a little tired but it was near end of season, more cleaners were needed, there were only 3 for the whole hotel and they had too much to do. The bathrooms were dirty and the toilet was not cleaned properly for 2 weeks. Breakfast was the same every day and a toaster is needed desperately.
Another exit from the hotel is needed, because it was like running the gauntlet every night trying to pass “Jimmy’s” the restaurant on the front of the hotel, if you were not eating there. He became very abusive and threatening telling several guests they would not be allowed to stay at the Alkan again if they did not eat there. Something needs to be done about this as it is spoiling the Hotel.
All of the hotel staff were wonderful as usual, especially Eren Talip and the Manager.
Can’t wait for our next visit, apart from Jimmy.
