My husband an myself just came back after 7 nights at the Ideal Prime Beach where we had quite a good holiday.
On arrival hotel looked as good as on the photos. Overall hotel looked impressive. We got checked in really quick. A bell boy showed us to our room which was in a separate building where the spa is. On the way we were tolled about the hotel and main areas.
When entered the room we were really surprised by the sea wonderful view. Room itself was big with double and a single beds, big bathroom, a balcony, fridge, TV and aircon. On a closer look the room appeared to be a bit worn off with wall paper coming off the walls in some places. But as log as it was clean I didn't care.
The real downside was a lack of centralized light switch for all the lights in the room. Plus the lights were vary dim even to read a book.
Another situation that made me doubt the overall cleanness of the room was when my husband cut his knee and stained bed sheets with his blood. Well, happens. When we came back from the beach next day I was shocked to see that houskeepers instead of changing the bed sheets simply washed the blood off with water or whatever liquid and left a big wet stain in the middle of the bed. I couldn't believe my eyes! Good thing that the moment I told manager about it everything was fixed and there was no other troubles during our stay.
Public areas, seeming pools and beach: clean, lots of seating space. Never had a problem with getting a sunbed.
Food: I'm afraid food was the main downside of our stay. I never had any high expectations from the buffet in the hotel. Plus after reading reviews I new what to expect. But even then I was disappointed. Food was pretty much the same everyday. Not even much variety between breakfast, lunch and dinner. How about chips 3 times a day? All meats were cooked from frozen. Lot's of things were undetectable. Luckily enough there were lot's of cats running around so I could do a little test: if something supposed to be a meat and a cat doesn't eat it I wouldn't either.
Were pushed into exploring restaurants outside the hotel.
entertainments: there were some performances organized every night in the night club of the hotel. Also there were volleyball, darts and other things to do. A very good thing that distinguish this hotel from others - since all the performances were inside the night club there was no extra noise.
also the hotel in a good quite location of marmaris, 40 mins away from city center if walking, clean sand and stone beach. Be careful of small fishes when staying still in the water! little things like to bite!
