“Fab hotel-but not enough info about excursions!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

When we first arrived at the hotel we were all extremely impressed with the decor-it is stunning.A polite and helpful bus boy showed us to our rooms and explained how to use the safety deposit box (which is free but not the easiest to use) and the air con (life saver!).The room was a comfortable size,the shower was huge and everything was very clean.We did not book a sea view but are were not disappointed.We had a view of the main street and mountains and the balcony was a Sun trap after midday.The rest of the hotel was also very clean.The food available is of a wide variety (provided you are not really fussy!). Some days the food was better but this is to be expected.Although the dining hall was always busy we never struggled to find a table.If you don't fancy eating in the main hall at lunch time,the snack bar offers freshly cooked pizza (which is amazing but you have to be quick) chips,chicken,salad etc.We ate here often after spending the day by the beach.The patisserie was to die for!We visited the Mexican alacarte once and it was okay but not amazing.The only complaint I have is about the alcohol that is available.I found the only decent drink was archers and lemonade and the cocktails were a massive let down (but I am not a huge drinker and understand this is an all inclusive hotel!).There is also food/drink available on the private beach which was very handy.Security are constantly monitoring the hotel,but it didn't feel threatening in any way.The entertainment team themselves were all very friendly and were always smiling.But the entertainment itself wasn't too great-but this hotel is not entertainment oriented so I think they did the best they could!The hotel also has its own nightclub-but drinks are only free until midnight!The hotel is in an excellent location between marmaris and icemeler and the local buses are cheap and very easy to use (not to mention handy).
Our Thomas cook rep,Sarah, was lovely and we did organise a few trips.The first was the market trip which was cheap but you didn't have enough time really.Quad biking was amazing but we got absolutely drenched and were not warned of this.If you go you will need a towel,a change of clothes and 2tl for a locker.Photographs are 15tl.The last trip we opted for was dalayan departure.Our return flight was at 4am and we did not want to waste our last day.We were picked up at 7:25am (ouch) and accommodation in dalayan was included.Whilst the trip included food it didn't include drinks which were practically forced upon you at 6tl each.We visited turtle beach and the rep failed to mention that you needed to pay for umbrellas and Sun beds separately.We didn't take money for this and I ended up getting burnt.The mud bath was an experience to!We were told our transfer to the airport would pick us up at 1:15am,however the driver was 40minutes later and very rude.He didn't say one word to us and we were annoyed to say the least.Overall we had a fab time in the resort but more information needs to be given about trips!

We stayed here a week in April at this lovely hotel. Hotel is set in beautiful grounds and has very ornate decoration making great photo opportunities. The hotel has a fantastic entertainment team who are around the hotel day and night socialising with the guests and offering a full entertainment programme for adults and children. We loved the food, especially the outdoor snack bar which has a great selection of food. Private beach has plenty of sunbeds. Only fault is the hotel is in stealer so quite a long walk to lively bars but hotel has it's own nightclub where you will be made welcome by the great entertainment team always up for a dance. Would definitely go back to this hotel again.

Great hotel in a fab location between Marmaris and Ichmeler which were both a lovely walk along the sea front. The hotel itself is very clean, the rooms are not huge but more than adequate and the food was good. You can always find something to eat however fussy. I would recommend that you book a sea view room and pay the extra as a lot of the rooms overlook a busy main road.
We're not that bothered about entertainment so can't comment and we sat on the beach not round the pool. The sunbeds were free and there is a jetty with comfy sofas to lie on.
A couple of downsides - all drinks were in plastic glasses at all times other than in the dining room and most of the time you were only allowed 2 drinks at a time. There is a beautiful bar area in the main hotel however, it did not serve alcohol only tea coffee and soft drinks. The All Inclusive ends a midnight which is fair enough - you could get a drink after this time but they were expensive.
Overall we had a great holiday and I would return. If you have been to Antalya area in a hotel of the same rating they are generally better.

Room Tip: Always book a sea or pool view.

The hoel is lovely but the rooms for 3 sharing are tiny you can hardly walk round the beds. We had a lovely sea view well worth the extra but if you have more than 2 get a family room, we were in block 2, friends had a triple in block 3 and it was qute big. The entertainment is shocking!!!!! during the day you see "the gang" once or twice doing a pool game after that you don't see them again. The childrens disco is held inside in the nightclub, this is small and if the children want a drink you have to go to a different bar. The "animation team" are more interested in themselves than the children, they never help them join in they just dance and look at each other there is no interaction at all.
The "animation team" do the evening entertainment as well other than maybe 1 or 2 nights where they have Turkish dancers...... in the nightclub. I would not say the entertainment is family friendly when girls jump on the men trying to pop ballons and then another night have a lady holding a frying pan while the man hits it with a spoon tied round his waist!!!!
This hotel need to get a stage and professional entertainment.
The restaurants / grill are a nightmare, you queue everywhere (well the brits do!) they really need a childrens area for food as I have 4 children and they were pushed out of the way or ignored by bar staff.
The children wanted to play football and just run around, there is no where for them to go other than the small play area but ths is aimed at smaller children. There are some of "the gang" at the play area but 1 day we were there they were arguing and play fighting, this frightened the children and we had to tell them to stop.
Plenty of food choices but would not like to be here in July/August it was busy enough in May!! Not enough sun beds for the amount of people and unless your up at 7 you wont get 1.
Lots of young Eastern Europeans on holiday running around all night banging on doors, during the day they were taking over the pool area became abit like 18-30!!! i think it was the end of their exams so this was probably a one off week, security on the hotel should monitor this abit better.

This is our second stay at the Ideal Prime Beach only we stayed for 2 week this time instead of 1 (myself, my husband and our 8 year old son). Could fault the food or hotel again apart from the room we got was a bit small. The animation team were really good especially Ismail (Think this is how you spell it), our son thought he was fantastic especially through the day having water fights with him etc. We are seriously considering booking again for next year.

The only problem we had with this holiday was the noise off some teenagers which were staying in the hotel after graduating (Think they were Bulgarian), they were running wild early hours of the morning, slamming doors etc and they were always taking over the pool on some days and leaving quite a few people intimidated which isnt very nice especially when hotel is advertised for families and couples and our last few days felt like we were in a 18 - 30 hotel. Got to admit we were pleased to be going home when we did.
Also seems like some people didnt like queuing for food at meal times which got quite annoying after a few days.

Other than this can not fault this hotel at all.

Just returned from Ideal Prime Beach, first impressions are wow, beautiful hotel, lovely grounds, amazing sea views etc etc. Well it is not quite what it seems. This hotel has the potential to be outstanding ! Having worked in the travel industry for 20 years I have a lot to compare it to. Firstly the swimming pools, both pools are ice cold and I don't know why, even at 4pm when the sun has been on the pools all day they are still abnormally cold. Next sun beds, far too many squashed in around both pools, the pools are fairly big but the sunbathing terraces are not adequate space for the amount of guests staying in the hotel when at full capacity. Noise levels around each pool are very annoying, it's ok for a while but not all day !! I'm talking about music not general chit chat etc. They should allocate one pool for fun and activities and one pool for peace and quiet so that we can sunbathe in peace for a few hours. Rooms are fine, we had a wonderful sea view so no complaints there. Food was ok not five star unfortunately, edible and tasty but lacking in choice and excitement. I would like show cooking in the main buffet restaurant, lots of choice, staff greeting me into the restaurant and showing me a table not my family trying to beat a Russian family to the only available table !! The snack bar and drink bars were strange in that you could never work out when one bar opened and the other closed and where you could get snacks and at what time. Everything is set to a certain time I mean please relax a little we are on holiday after all. It would be nice for the children (and mummies and daddies) to have ice cream available during the day too. Lastly the staff, I think the majority of staff were ok, fairly polite nothing special but acceptable,however ,Olga who is one of the duty managers ( even though she thought she ran the entire hotel lol!)was very rude and her behaviour towards some of the guests was completely unacceptable, she was aggressive and definitely not an ideal person to have in guest relations. Lastly I would like to say that Turkey. is a wonderful country and Marmaris is a great resort as is Oludeniz, fethiye, icmeler, hisaronu and many more but please don't waste your hard earned money on this hotel as I can guarantee that there are much better hotels to stay in. I have stayed in better 3 stars !!!

Room Tip: sea view is a must.

This hotel is really clean and modern, well furnished and decorated, the food is very well presented even if a bit on the cool side for us Brits, ( the Turks eat food warm ) the bar staff are very attentive and quick, eray is a very good waiter indeed. The al a carte was just perfect we had the international meal, the service in the restaurant however was not so good in some parts, if you sit on the gold chairs in the far side of the restaurant with the white chandeliers, you could be sat there all night before you get cutlery or drinks, the rest of the room is fine, just don't sit in that area, did report this to customer service but nothing changed, the entertainment team were mostly ok but the tall one with the whistle was just too much. But a very nice hotel and would consider returning, if the problems are sorted out, I will keep reading trip advisor to see if it does

Room Tip: All sea view rooms are good
