We travelled to Blue Bay Platinum 13 July for 10 nights 10 adults and 3 children. Please take no notice if the bad reviews, having stayed in Marmaris many a time this hotel was excellent. extremely clean, i was very impressed.
Food was great - choice a plenty - yes chips and nuggetts are standard on lunch and dinner menu but there was fish, beef, chicken , pasta , noodles, stirfries, salads, sushi, veggies ahoy - i never had the same meal for 10 days - plenty of choice - deserts to die for if your into them.
Snack bar great duringthe day if you don't want a full lunch, burgers, chx wraps, chx meat chips pasta , pizza , fresh fruit all avaiable. Over by the kids pool is a cafe bar serving freshly made cakes and biscuits, coffee , tea and juices.
Drinks at the bar were excellent The beer is Efes , local spirits, vodka good and so was the red wine ! Cocktails also nice although limited to 2 types.
Pool was very clean - yes an issue with sun beds and i just wish the hotel would remove towels on beds that were un occupied for more than 2 hours - however there are usually plenty of chairs about to sit on. The beach has beds available and i was impressed that the cleaners come to the beach to clean aswell ! not seen that before. Kids pool also great 1.2m for the kids which is a releif as usually all pools in Turkey are deep ! kids enjoyed the slides
Rooms were well comfortable - air conditioning was free , tvs in room showing english programmes as a surcharge - free bottled water , nice free shampoo's , gel and soap.
Location of the hotel is excellent within 3 mins walk of the beach , lots of other resturants and bars around if you fancy something different however i only eat at the hotel - couldn't fault it.
Entertainment at night was good we watched some excellent bands however they only lasted 1-1 1/2 hours and that was your lot - just as you got into the swing they finished - this could have been better and this is the only complaint i have ( and the sunbeds).
Overall an excellent stay - oh a tip for you, if your flying home late they allow you to use the spa shower facilities as they have no spare rooms , ask at reception for clean towels as they are available - If your going enjoy your stay as we did ! This hotel is up there with grand Cettia , enjoy x

- In the centre of Marmaris, newly-refurbished Blue Bay Platinum goes the extra mile for guests. Its new sleek exterior, with violet lighting and curvy lines, makes an instant impression. This lively and very popular hotel is well suited for families and all ages alike. Tranquil sea-themed rooms feel like oases despite being in the center of the city. A great collection of facilities at the hotel, 4 outdoor pools, one of which comes with water slides, and it continues with a spa, where you can take your pick from a range of treatments and therapies. The main restaurant brings buffet dining into the 21st century. You can sit in comfy settees to eat, and food choices are presented artistically, think amuse bouche in shot glasses and prawn cocktails in highball glasses. Only 70 m to the main beach and 1.9 km to the cosmopolitan centre, with Marmaris famous shopping bazaar, amazing nightlight and multi-million dollar marinas. Travel only 2.5 kilometers or 10 minutes by local transport to the idyllic neighboring resort of Icmeler boasting magnificent scenery and beach. ... more less
