“It's getting close? Can't wait to get back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stayed here in June with my 2 sons and there wives and our grandson.
Also stayed here in September
This was by far the best stay we ever had in Marmaris I have to take my hat off to all the staff and the owner,
It was just such a change to not get any pressure from the staff about eating there or why are you not drinking in here tonight they don't even bother people passing to come in and that's what helps to make it special,
The rooms are basic but always clean the food is very nice and very reasonably priced the beer is very cold and the prices are very competitive with the local bars,
we are going back in June and we cannot wait,
We have been working very hard like most people and we know we will be made very welcome.

We spent 16 nights at the Orkide in September and had a fantastic time. Although my partner had been to Marmaris before it was my first time and the Orkide was an ideal base. The location was perfect as it was 2 mins to the beach and in particular the pier at Demirs where we spent a lot of our days.

The rooms at the hotel were basic but kept spotlessly clean with towels and bed linen changed often. All the public areas and pool were kept immaculately clean and tidy.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

We ate at the hotel on a number of occasions and the andolian mixed grill was amazing. The pizza is also highly recommended as a lunch time treat. Our only grumble about the food was breakfast. We found it a bit lacking as there was limited choice and no cooked meats, however that is our personal taste and we knew a Turkish breakfast could be very basic.

The only other thing we could fault was the swimming pool. Because of the position it didn't get the sun all day and as a result it was extremely cold. The weather was red hot when we were there and a dip in the pool was needed to cool off but the pool at the Orkide was not refreshing but almost icy!!

All in all we had an excellent holiday and I fell in love with Marmaris and we will definitely return and when we do we will be staying at the Orkide.

Well after staying in Blue Bays hotel with friends in June and visiting Orkide as a couple of my friends were staying here I decided to round up the girls, pack my suitcase and jet back off to Orkide for a second holiday of the year, and boy was this a good idea!
Arrived very early in the morning had a kip and straight out onto the sun loungers, was very excited to be reunited with members of the hotel including Erdal, KOKO, Barry Chuckle, Dick, Fatih, Berbat and the newest member that just stole my heart Hasim.
The pear cider there is simply devine! me and the girls sipped on them all day long and Erdal was always on hand to pass a fresh cold one once the last gulp washed down!
The food is lovely, cheesey garlic bread - ABSOLUTELY BANGING! The drinks are lovely too and all at reasonable prices, and can be put on a tab making it easier than battling with wet notes from the splashes of the pool.
The pool its self is a reasonable size and lilos and rubber rings are always available to lounge on, there was a family that entertained us one day doing diving competitions, George was the main man and I actually thought Tom Daley was in the pool at one point. What a lovely atmosphere amongst all the guests!!
The staff are fantastic, especially fatih and hasim - BIG SHOUT OUT TO MY BOIS! The cat is just gorgeous it loves to be kissed and stroked!! Cornflakes are great for breakfast as well as the amazing cheese!!! Rooms are very clean and the aircon is permanatly on so always nice and fresh in your bedroom!
Showers are a good size, could actually fit two adults in there!!
WONDERFUL HOTEL! BRING ON 2013!!
lots of love to all the staff xxxxxxxxx

Having just returned from another visit to the Orkide Hotel on the 2nd October - my 3rd visit this year !!!!
What more can I say - the fabulous service, with such a personal ,warm welcome service throughout our whole stay.
If it's Benidorm with sunshine that you're after then go elsewhere. the hotel is ideally situated, spotlessly clean ( your room is cleaned everyday,very thoroughly - not just a flick round with a duster ! ) . If you want to experience true Turkish hospitality, excellent food and impeccable service then The Orkide is the place for you - Within walking distance of the vibrant energy of the town centre, Marmaris itself is an ideal family -orientated resort , not a bit like the reputation that it used to have ! I have stayed in two other 4* and 5* hotels in the town before I found the Jewel in the Crown which is The Orkide.
We've already booked for next year as this hotel has guests that return time and time again so it's best to book early to guarantee your reservation.
The staff work long hours with such efficiency and friendliness that I've not found anywhere else. There is no hassle to eat there and Erdal who we initially thought was the owner deserves a medal for his advice, hospitality and general good humour alone. Whatever that guy gets paid he deserves double, as do the rest of the hard-working staff. I must mention the gardener Zeki as his knowledge and willingness to answer anything about the wonderful hotel gardens would knock spots off Alan Titmarsh !!
The public areas are spotless, toilets cleanest in Marmaris and copious amounts of hot water 24 hours a day.
the hotel is suitable for all ages, couples , families , singles and even women travelling alone. We never had to worry about leaving /hiding our belongings/cash in the room - the staff are more likely to give than take ( a rarity in any hotel in todays climate ).
The pool is cleaned every day, is not pumped full of eye-watering chlorine and you don't need to creep out at silly o'clock to get a poolside sunbed !!!! There are plenty of sunbeds for those that want them or for those that want the quiet spot to read /relax then the tranquil garden area is just perfect,
I could go on and on but we won't stay anywhere else in Marmaris and several of our friends and family have been bitten by The Orkide bug ! and return year after year.
Erdal - you are the best, keep on smiling - we'll be back.
I have nothing negative to say about the hotel . resort and especially the staff - Try it just once and you'll be hooked.

Room Tip: All rooms have good sized balconies, ample storage space and are spotless - just make sure you leave...
