“Basic, clean but sorely needing some attention.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Despite the many glowing reviews on Tripadvisor, I have to say Kibele was a little disappointing. On the positive side, the apartments were spotless and cleaned every day by the friendly maids; the balconies were much bigger than the norm in Turkey; the location is very good being less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and the attached restaurant offers some lovely food.

However there were a few issues. The furnishings are very basic and tired with the drawers sticking and almost impossible to open and the doors of the wardrobes not closing. Although we had no intention of cooking, the kitchenette is very poorly equipped... e.g. 2 very small cups and two tiny glasses. The shower looked really good and spacious but whenever used, dirty water poured out from beneath the shower tray and flooded the bathroom, We repeatedly asked for action to be taken and after two days we were moved to another room. This time there was little more than a trickle from the shower, the toilet constantly ran and one of the lights could only be turned off by unscrewing the bulb. I am realistic about Turkish plumbing and know this was only a 3 star hotel but most disappointing was the lack of interest shown by the staff. To be honest, we did not find the staff particularly friendly, which is very unusual in Turkey, and it may just be that they were tired at the end of a long season.

So overall we had a lovely holiday but wouldn't return to the Kibele as we have had much better experiences at similarly rated Turkish hotels.

Just got back from the Kibele, what a brilliant time we had. The apartments are lovely and cleaned every day by the maids who are very friendly, the Kibele Apartments are up a little side street just out of the way. This is a lovely chilled out place to stay, there is a restaurant connected to the apartments also called the Kibele. The food is delicious and not to expensive, look out for Andy when visiting the restaurant he is absolutely fantastic. He made us so welcome and always went that extra mile, I would recommend this hotel and restaurant to anybody visiting Marmaries. You will recieve a lovely welcome especially from Andy, come on hotel Kibele give this man a promotion he more than deserves waiting on tables his talent is wasted.

Room Tip: Attic room number 803, gets the sun all day and very private

Kibele is one of the nicest places to stay in marmaris the staff at kibele are lovely always welcome to help you with anything you need or to give you any tips while on your holiday =). The maids at kibele are always smiling chatting away make you feel happy to be there, the pool is big and there is loads of sun loungers and a bar right next to the pool =). The kibele has a booking place for trips right at the side which is the best booking place in marmaris iv been to since going for 12 years and the guys there look after you.

Only through the door about an hour and i had to write a review on this place, its absaloutly perfect to everywhere, only a stones throw away from the beach and central to everything, Yusef the barman made the holiday for us, he was a laugh around the pool, the cleaners were in every single day changing the bed sheet and cleaning the whole place.. Would 100% recommend

Stayed here for two weeks with my wife and three daughters. The apartment on the first floor was clean, had a lovely balcony and air-conditioning in the main area. The self-catering facilities were basic but adequate. The pool and sunbeds were lovely and in the sun for most of the day. Friendly, helpful staff at reception and at the bar. The restaurant was good too. The beach was only a 5 minute walk and shops/restaurants etc were nearby.

Stayed for 10 days and were pleasantly surpised by Kibele. It was better than expected, as we booked last minute and didn't have much choice of places to stay. We're a family of 4 with 2 boys aged 11 and 13 and they loved the pool and waterslide. We booked a deluxe apartment and it was very spacious and comfortable with excellent air conditioning. The maids came in every day and changed beds and towels every 2-3 days. The restaurant was very good, so we ate there often and Andy and Erhan looked after us brilliantly there. They have plenty of customers who come back year after year. The guys who ran the pool bar - Youssef and Volkan, were lovely as well, nothing too much trouble. The only downside was that the Karaoke bar over the road added to the loud music that was played at Kibele, but that seems to be the norm for Marmaris! If you're looking for a place right in the heart of Marmaris with easy walks to bars and restaurants and also the seafront, then it's a great choice. Also you can easily catch a dolmus from right outside to go to the marina or Icmeler.

looked at the reviews on trip advisor before booking and as the majority of reviews were positive we booked and weren't disappointed! Apartments are lovely, the location is brilliant, the staff, especially Yusuf, Volkan Ozan and Andy are just fantastic! we spent a superb 11 nights there and wouldn't hesitate to visit again and would certainly recommend it!
