Ekin Hotel
Ranked #70 of 234 Hotels in Marmaris
Reviewed July 2, 2011

This was our third year staying at the Ekin. The location is excellent with the local bus stopping directly outside the hotel. Each time we visit it gets better and better. We were met by Osman in the early hours who again took us to our room quickly. We had an apartment which was spacious and very clean. If we needed anything the cleaners were on hand and always happy to help. The pool area and the pool is just lovely.
There is always such a warm welcome from the managers Muammer, Angel and Necati. They certainly ensure you have a great holiday.
The food in the restaurant is excellent with a great choice. We struggled last September to get served however this year the staff are the THE BEST!!! So a big thanks to Hasan, Guney and Erhan who were always friendly, extremely helpful with nothing being too much trouble and also lots of fun.
Again we did not want to come home and look forward to returning hopefully this year and many more times to come.

absolutely brilliant!
my friend and i came as a last minute deal and therefore didn't have much choice on the accomodation. after reading previous reviews we were initially apprehensive about some aspects of the ekin, but these pauses turned out to be irrelevant!
the staff were absolutely brilliant, we arrived at about 4am and Jimmi and Muammer quickly checked us in and Jimmi escorted our bags to the room. as we went into the room we both erupted into hysterics at the simplicity of it, but on reflection it had everything we needed, although basic and there was no fridge, but everything was in working order. one word of warning is that there is a chicken farm opposite, and if you happen to be awake in the early hours, the chickens don't do the best job at sending you back to sleep! maids had cleaned the rooms to perfection, and were always on hand to provide extra pillows etc!
breakfast was simple, but we only woke early enough to have it twice so weren't particularly bothered by this, and throughout the day snacks and drinks are served from the bar, at competitive prices. pool area was clean and the staff are around to come and chat and get to know you, particularly Jonny, Hassan and Erhan. supermarket just next door and the lady is lovely, open most of the night as well. in some reviews we read that the staff were funny if you went to eat elsewhere but we never experienced this, they were interested in where we going, but nothing else. also as younger travelers, we had tendencies to return to the hotel in the early hours of each morning, but were always greeted with a hug by the night staff. we recommend renting a safe, it's only £1 a day, or 2.50TL and well worth it to avoid taking excessive sums of money out etc.
Marmaris itself was beautiful, lots to see and do. In the evening we spent a lot of time at the Konak Apart just down the road, which had buy one get one free drinks all day. also handem on the main street is a good laugh, and offer good meals although we mainly just drank there. our favourite place for meals was porto fino on the main street though, staff helpful, food nice and good prices.
will be returning to marmaris in september, and although we couldn't book the ekin due to over occupancy will definitely be returning for a drink!

We are a well travelled couple who have stayed in a lot of hotels and I can honestly say this has been the nicest...it might not have been as swanky and posh as some but the family and all who work here make is so welcoming it was no wonder why we ate here most nights (plus the food was great). The rooms are cleaned everyday, fresh laundered towels. (the tidyness is throughout the hotel !) Really, really helpful staff. and very patient too - there was one family and their daughter pushed one of the waiters in the pool and he was still smiling.
lovely genuine people, lovely place, nicely central to everything... we will be returning here.

Room Tip: All the rooms where nice !

We booked this last minute and was a little apprehensive because of price. We need not have been. Its was great! Our room was spacious, clean well funished and the beds were so comfy. We had a corner room which had two windows so was so light and airey. The staff were excellent nothing was to much trouble, if you asked for something it was actioned immediately. They put on a show/barbacue on Wednesday evenings which cost £11 and it was brill, street dance team, belly dancer and of course the staff also got invovled. It was in a quiet area of Marmaris away from the main hubbub, aprrox 10min walk to beach, but close to many bars and restuarants. Definately going back.

Room Tip: Ask for corner room on top floor
