Ideal Prime Beach
Ranked #17 of 234 Hotels in Marmaris
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We have just come back from a last minute holiday to this hotel for the October Half Term and would highly reccomend it. Being out of season it was quiet and the staff were very attentive. The buffet restaurant had a wide selection of different foods each night. Hotel is situated in an excellent position on the waterfront and would recommend walking in both directions along the promenade to the shops, over getting the local buses...which were an experience! The room was maybe a little bit tired, but this was the last week of their season. Would definately consider going again.

Room Tip: stunning sea views...worth paying bit more for

We arrived at this hotel in September for 11 days.We were slightly worried by a few of some previous reviews. Our fears were diminished soon after arrival.. The Hotel is extremely clean ,good waiter service at tables both in the restaurant and bar areas,whilst some of the food is eastern european,it is of a very high standard.The comments that the waiters can not speak our language is untrue, in fact many can also speak russian and german too. The only short coming is the size of a few of the rooms,they are well maintained but small for a 4* + hotel. We would certainly go back again.

we went in october to this glorious hotel, absolutely beautiful..from the decor to the surroundings, our rooms where absolutely stunning we were in the old part but on the first floor above the restaurant which ment a view right out onto the sea, where we seen the sun come up and cruise liners passing every day it was breathe taking really words cant describe the view, the rooms themselves where nice, although we did have a dampness smell in our bathroom due to the shower not being sealed properlly at the bottom but other than that it was lovely air con, caple tv with good english channels like e4 and movies etc

as for the hotel itself the reception is so grand and beautiful you could literally look at it for hours the detail just blows you away really, then its out onto the garden which itself is just stunning, with all the features and decoration and fountain then literally one foot infront of the other and your on the private beach. everything was beautiful and all the added extras like the all inclusive cake shop in the afternoon and baked potatoes on the beach where just all the lovely extras.

the entertainment was amazing considering it was october nearly end of season, they have there own production room which later turns into a nightclub with a dj from one of marmaris's top clubs

As much as id love to give this hotel a 5/5 i cant, there was a few things that not only myself but a few other guests felt needed to be voiced in the hotel

the bar staff at the poolside...didnt speak one word of english and looked at you like you were stupid when trying to order a drink including the manager of the bar for a 5 star you expect at least a bit of customer service like a smile or willingness to help neither where offered in the whole 7 days we stayed...pool was gorgeous but full of wasps and the reason for it if you look in the folds of the hotel there are particularly large hives we noticed 4 on the hotel walls alone and as you can believe there was hundreds daily around the pool area

as for the food at the hotel it was average, very repetative and not a great selection (i am not a fussy eater but i struggled) and in october the hotel was packed which is a great thing but when its filled with russians and germans who of majority are very rude its not the best

wake up at 5am to put towels at the pool before anyone else (some taking up to 10 beds) even though its stated on the "supposid rules" if a towel is left on the sunloungers over 2 hours with noone on them they will be removed- is rubbish they never ever got moved!

restaurant- push passed you, dont believe in the queing system, take your tables even when you actually have belongings sitting at them its just below etiquette but this is not the hotels fault this is just me trying to build you the picture on what little things can become big things on a holiday you spend £600 per person on it sort of takes the goodness out of it.

we ended up eating out most nights but as we have been to marmaris 15 times over the passed five years we already new of lovely eateries close by piccaso's across the road from the hotel is fantastic cant do enough for you and make you feel ever so welcome and part of the family, also the three brothers along the beach front a short walk from the hotel to the left the food is outstanding and very reasonably priced and the waiters are a group of brothers who are ever so friendly again cant do enough to make you more comfortable

so all in all id like to say a fantastic holiday but this hotel needs to bring up the bar on a few things and i could safely say great hotel

Room Tip: ask for a sea view as this will include the pool and grounds.

Thank you for posting your review on the tripadvisor website.
Guest feedback is important to us especially when given whilst still in the Hotel as this enables us to resolve any concerns that guests may have and this can be done through the resort reps who visit on a daily basis or directly at Customer Services as the personnel here have direct contact with the Department Managers. Concerns raised here are usually resolved to the guests` satisfaction and can range from house-keeping issues to technical services and service received in the bars and restaurants.
I am very happy to read however that you enjoyed the Hotel decor, rooms and the free facilities provided in them, the grounds, private beach and jetty, the patisserie and the entertainment.
I do hope that we will be able to welcome you again and would like to thank you for choosing Ideal Prime Beach for your holiday.

I usually travel, the kids wanted a pool holiday, so they booked here. I thought the hotel was great, pools excellent for the granddaughter, staff superb especially with the toddler and for me there was 'breathing space'.
The downside was I found the food a little tedious, too international for my likeing but I prefer basic turkish fare. Also we were opposite a hotel with a loud poolside disco that ran til midnight and the noise did disturb a bit.
For what we wanted, a poolside holiday with nothing to worry about and things for the youngsters to do, is exactley what we got.

Room Tip: Best rooms are probably facing the sea.

This hotel was fantastic we had a few issues in arrival eg no cot for baby, shower gel, and the key card holder to activate the lights fell off the wall we rang reception and they responded within 5 mins. The staff are very attentive especially if you have children.
Our only advice would be not to go at the end of season, the a la carte and mexican restaurants were both closed and the main restaurants food was down scaled on a daily basis leaving a basic selection. Additionally, the entertainment was cancelled every night we were there due to "no children" for the mini disco etc
The hotel in itself is designed amazingly the lighting/fixtures are great even the toilets!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea/pool view it is at a cost but the main road through marmaris is on the other side

Stayed at the Ideal Prime Beach in May 2012. Hotel lovely & clean Food ok, but it took the waiters for every to clean tablets and being 2 drinks at Breakfast, lunch & Dinner. bar staff very slow in taking drink orders and serving them. The singers in the upstair bar were good, but did sign the same songs every other night which was a bit of a pain for us as we stayed here for 11 nights. We had a nice relaxing time it was just let down by the staff, we did not use the pool as not engouh sun beds, so used the jetty on the beach but had to be up very early to get a bed!
