“DONT GO!! Trust me worst thing you'll do.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Myself and 4 friends stayed in this hotel for 10 nights, the rooms were so small and there was no room to put clothes or suitcases. The bathroom was okay but the toilet ran forever and the shower flooded after just over a minute. The staff were not interested in you unless you were an attractive female even the 'Boss' showed no interest in making sure you were happy. There was roughly 2 sunbeds that actually seen a spot of sun all day. The pool was so small you could push yourself from one side to another. Worst hotel i have ever been to great resort both Marmaris and Icmeler are nice places but avoid this hotel.

This hotel is perfect for the price you pay! Although the food is nothing incredible, there is something for everyone and plenty of it! The location is brilliant; being a 10 minute walk to the main town as well as a minute walk to the beachfront! The staff were the best thing about this holiday, being helpful and so so friendly! This is a basic hotel and I think those who have written a bad review maybe are looking for more for their money. The rooms were really spacious, as well as being cleaned everyday. I would definitely go back!

Room Tip: Not the first floor at the front of the hotel, as they don't have balconys!

Arrived at hotel at one in the morning, 2 hours late because the transfer had never heard of this hotel and took us somewhere completely different. So they took us to our room, and the staff noticed that the fridge and TV wasn't working so they decided to change them there and then. Didn't get to sleep till gone 3.
The staff were very pervy, constantly hitting on me and my friends. they even invited themselves along to our nights out. We were constantly trying to.loose them, so our nights out ended early.
The maids were friendly and did a good job of cleaning our room. Always had smiles on their faces.
The lift in the hotel had doors that would get jammed all the time. so you had to force them open yourself.
The pool is very basic, rectangular, one depth. Only about 7 sunbeds and no sun. Very built up that side of the hotel, was shady all day. So we spent the whole two weeks down at the beach which was fantastic. Only a 2/3 minute walk.
The food was very boring, same food every day with one or two things different.
So finally when the departure day came, we had to be out by midday about transfer wasn't picking us up till mid evening, so we left our luggage at the reception in view of everyone, there was no locked room to keep them in.

I loved Turkey just not the hotel.

We stayed in this hotel in September 2011 and we read the reviews and we wondered what we let ourselves in for. When we arrived at 5 in the morning the staff where very helpful there was a little mix up at our arrival time but they did get it all sorted. We got to our room and was pleasently surprised it was clean and so was the bedding. Food was ok not really catered for the English but hey what do you expect for a cheap place to stay? The staff where so nice and worked so hard and so many hours. All in all it was a lovely holiday

Room Tip: Try get the rooms at the top the view is spectacular and very good for shopping and the beach

If you are thinking of booking this hotel and are female DO NOT DO IT. A friend and I went for 1 week and we are in our twenties and you will not just get chatted up by the over friendly workers they will also touch you ad invade your personal space. On top of this we had to move hotels as the workers of the hotel had a full blown physical fight with knives less then a metre away from us. We spent our one night there scared and disgusted. A guest also assaulted another guest unprovoked and the hotel did not see this as a big deal and would not remove the guest. The hotel chain is owned by an intimidating man who just wanted this situation swept under the carpet. On top of that the swimming pool is the size of a bath and the food is disgusting! You can get much better budget hotels, so not go there!

What can I say well the reviews here are very true just got back from the Holiday 19 Aug 2011. If your female aged 14 to 25 then be ready to be chatted up 24/7 in this Hotel. Oh I use the Hotel lightly guest house.
Marmaris is quite nice The Hotel been stated many times its where you can sleep. The Drinks on the all inclusive very very very poor. The food very very very............... poor no sorry very poor
We will NEVER NEVER NEVER go back to TURKEY again we will return to our normal Holiday in SPAIN. The all inclusive Holidays in Spain are 8/10 instead of the 1/10 in TURKEY. I can say this because we have been to Spain for the last 7 Yrs with no complaints.
If you go to this Hotel and think the same write your thoughts here wish Id checked them out before booking my Hols. As they say learn by your mistakes and im 50yrs old.

Arrived at the hotel early in the morning, the reception area is okay, only a small hotel with some outdoor seating at the front and rear of the building. Hotel porter hung around for about 10 minutes expecting a tip, we stood on the balcony until eventually he had left. The room itself was nothing special, one double bed and one single, seemed fairly comfortable, aircon was fine, balcony door didn't lock which seemed strange. Cleaner did visit every day to change towels and make the beds, beds were changed every few days.

The first morning we had breakfast and were totally disappointed to say the least, there were 3 hot plates with different dishes available, along with a lot of salad which was just covered throughout the day, and a very small selection of fruit and cereals. Lunch was always chicken and fish and one again there were only 3 hot dishes to choose from, dinner was the same, most of the time different dishes but only 3. Chips were available ONE day out of the 7 we were there. The food was disgusting, bones in the fish, chicken always had vile sauces all over them, I wouldn't even touch the salad seeing as it just got covered when the buffet was closed. There were very specific times when the all inclusive food was open, normally hotels have a late lunch, or breads available all day, not here. We litterally ate our dinner here on the first night and didn't touch is for the rest of the week, we lived off pizza's on the beach and a mcdonalds another day. Absolutely disgusting. The drinks were very limited to say the least- beer, vodka and wine were available and were only available on the all inclusive until 10.30pm which is ludicrously early!

The reception area was fine, the tables did always appear quite clean to eat on. The outside area on the front was quite disgusting, with a falling down old 'cabinet/table' with a hole in it which they put the waste food down - it looks really unprofessional and grotty. Cats were always around the outside and the staff were playing with them and picking them up rather than shoo'ing them away from customers. Staff were friendly in a way but being a 20 year and going with one other 20 year old friend (females) we were CONSTANTLY harassed all day and night and the bar staff would always ask us to meet them later at night. How off-putting.

The pool area was seriously shocking, there was sun for about 2 hours a day, there were about 13 sun loungers, the pool was very small and people were eating in the same area on tables. Outside area was ridiculously small, Ive never seen anything so bad in my life. When you go on holiday you expect a big nice pool with lots of seats and some kind of entertainment, literally NO entertainment at this hotel! Do not under any circumstance take your children here it is 18-30's with nothing at all for the children to do.

It is a good job the hotel was located about a 1 min walk to the beach so we could get away from it. We actually had an amazing holiday despite all this and managed to put up with what we had while we were there. Marmaris is a lovely place and it hasn't put me off going back, I will definitely NOT be stayed in the Sun Maris Central again though, and none of the other sun maris's.

I hope this has been informative to anyone looking to stay here!
