“Great value, great staff, great holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

Me and my girlfriend spent a week in June at the Ekin Hotel. Rooms are basic but clean and has a nice balcony. The food is all delicious and good value for money... We LOVED the soups!! The staff are all very friendly and helpful. We didn't see any bugs the whole time we were there. The pool is small but spotless. Within walking distance to the beach and the local bus (blue dolmus) runs straight pass the hotel taking you to marmaris center. A big thank you to all the staff!! Jamie and Erin

I stayed here with a friend in July 2012 for 11 nights, it was very hot (heat wave of 55 degrees!!) the staff were lovely! Very very helpful, the lady gave me sun cream when I ran out and mine gave me prickly heat it was like having my mum there! The food was amazing, particularly the chicken dishes and the pancakes were gorgeous!! Be warned alcohol in marmaris in the clubs is VERY expensive around £8 for a vodka red bull single! The trips and excursions we did with Thomas cook were really good, we did the market one and the water park, however the water park we went to on the top of the hill, there wasn't much there I'd say about 2 hours max there! We walked back to the hotel in the end. The dolmus buses into marmaris itself were very cheap but hard to understand what one goes where! The hotel was very good value for money and food there is quite cheap, there are a few shops about 50 metres up the road with neighbouring hotels and restaurants and mini supermarkets where you can buy water Etc. would deffinatley come back here!

If your on a tight budget and want a base to explore the area from its good value for money. Continental breakfasts are nice and fresh still get the usual moaning people wanting bacon and sausages included etc izzy is a great guy.

I stayed here in July with my partner and my mum, when we arrived at the hotel we were disgusted in what we had booked, the way it is advertised is nothing like what it is. We booked with Thomas cook the Ekin apartments but on our arrival we were shown to our rooms in the hotel part, we were very upset about our rooms as we were told there would be a fan and a fridge there was non of this. There was aircon which had to be payed for (price was on the back of the door, when we came to pay for it it was much dearer and told us that the advertisement of aircon had changed prices - FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!! we found dirty socks and underwear in te cupboard on our Last day when we were checking we hadn't left anything! Disgusting! Angel and her husband were really helpful and really friendly where as the rest of the staff were really ignorant, they was fine for the first few days of us arriving and then all of a sudden they changed. the night shift guy was great he was really friendly and helpful. There was no entertainment on like advertised as there wasn't 'enough' staff also music had to be turned off around the pool as people were moaning. All in all this holiday was a disaster which was a real shame as I stayed in marmaris a couple of years ago and couldn't have faulted it. We met many of people on that holiday that we have kept in touch with that was the only great thing that came out of it! Everyone we spoke to also had something bad to say about the hotel!!

The staff in the Ekin hotel were very friendly and me feel very comfortable in the hotel. The room was very basic but very nice to stay in. The rooms were also very clean and well looked after. The location made the holiday even better the hotel was only 10 minutes walk to Mamaris beach front. The pools at the Ekin hotel were in excellent condition on a night the staff were cleaning the bottom of the pool and putting more chlorine into the pool to make sure it was the the standard they wanted it.I loved the Ekin hotel it made my holiday the best holiday ever. I will be returning to the Ekin again when i am on holiday.

I read loads of reviews on this hotel before going, in response to the negative ones...if you want 5 star, a T.V in the room and don't have a sense of humour then this is not the place for you. We stayed here for a week and had a great time. The staff were friendly and very funny, the rooms are basic but provide everything you need, you can always get a sun bed and the food is superb. We didn't spend all day every day there and contrary to other reviews this was not a problem at all. When we did eat or have a few drinks there, the food was fantastic and can highly recommend the cocktails. Regards some complaints about the breakfast, you can have as many fresh boiled eggs as you want, tomato, cucumber, jams etc and lovely fresh bread plus tea and coffee, if this isnt enough for you they do a lovely large cooked breakfast for about £2. We really enjoyed this holiday at this hotel and are thinking of going back next year.
