5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2009

Just read the review below and cannot understand why this person is complaining? I was worried when booking that this hotel only had a one star rating and that it was quite cheap. We arrived early hours of the morning and were pleasantly surprised at how helpful the staff were and how clean the room was, we already knew the room was small as we had read the reviews before booking but it was big enough for us and spotlessly clean, and cleaned every day, beds made, flours moped, bathroom cleaned and towels changed. There are 2 pools as there are apartments and a hotel at Ekin, we stayed by the smaller pool next to the bar which is handy as the friendly staff will bring your drink out to you all you have to do is ask. The Turkish night on a thursday is well worth the money and very entertaining. There were quite a few couples of different ages when we stayed and the craic seemed to be flowing whenever we were heading out or coming back after hitting Marmaris. The beach is only 10 min walk down one straight road but is very busy so we tended to stay by the pool with all our facilities close by. I would defiantly go back to this hotel again if we were ever in Marmaris again and i would recommend it to anyone. Thanks to all the staff for a great welcoming time.

we arived at the ekin hotel which is no where near the beach as we was told. The room is like a shoe box, the sheets was very dirty, the shower didnt have a holder or even a shower curtain, the toilet looked like it had never been cleaned, the balcony is about 2feet wide, and over looking our room was some lovely old bbq's some old bikes and what looked like a poor excuse for a flower display that never got finished. it is ok for a gang of young lads looking to go and have a ball with no qualitys in the room, literly just a bed and a dirty toilet for your holiday. it is like what you would call the "GETTO" very run down area. totaly changed my opinion of turkey and would never go back rouined my holiday!!!

This hotel is located 10 mins away from the beach front. I was a bit worried that it only had a one star rating when I booked it but Thomas Cook assured me that it had only been given that rating as it was a basic small family run hotel.

The room was a reasonable size with a big balcony and it was very clean. It had air con for which you had to pay £3 per day. The only thing missing from the room was a fridge which would have been handy to put drinks in due to the extreme heat.

The guys at the hotel were lovely - Tony is a great entertainer! The pool is small, we never used it as we went to the beach everyday.

Food in the restaurant was good and very cheap compared to other places. Shower is small but at the end of the day this is a basic hotel so I don't think you can expect luxury. The maids came and cleaned the room every day and towels were changed every couple of days.

Nice thing about this hotel was there were no very young kids which made it very peaceful.

I had a fabulous time in Marmaris and would not hesitate to go back and stay at the Ekin.

What an amazing holiday I had here! I've only arrived home today but am already missing the hotel and staff. The food was outstanding, it's impossible to be unimpressed with the food. Although the room was very basic it was spotless and gets cleaned every day. The hotel is located in a lovely area where it's easy to get into the heart of marmaris but is still peaceful. The staff are the best there is, they will make it their duty to provide whatever you ask for, they were the best and they make your holiday worth while.
The only bad point is that the pillows arent the best so would advise you to take a pillow just incase.
One of my best holiday's ever, the 2 weeks were so relaxing and I'm planning on returning to the Ekin as soon as possible.

we arrived early morning was met by the manager and ozzy, air con switched on for us £3 a day. nothing to much trouble . My partner had a birthday while out there the bar manager Richard arranged a birthday cake for us complete with sparkler, My friend came to turkey in the second week of our stay she was unable to get a room with the ekin so was staying else where the staff at the ekin made her welcome and even took her to her hotel and picked her up for us as she spent a lot of time with us,
The waiters were friendly but not too in your face, Turkish night was lovley and the food was wonderful as well as the entertainment, Angel is lovley always smiling...
Tony, Chris . Izzy. Ozzy, Boss man ,Richard. Mustaff all waved us off at 7.30 on our day of departure.The rooma are roomy and cleaned daily, towles changed and sheets changed regulary,
There is also the apartments that sleep 4 for self catering people, and 2 pools and a childs pool area, all clean and with loungers,
The food is delicious and well priced and a good selection, Breakfast consisted of bread ,jam, melon , bolied eggs, cucumber, tomatoes. cheese, tea and coffee, english breakfast was 6 lira but well worth it...
this is a lovley place to stay and i would advise anyone to book,, we have just booked to go back next year,
The talk of the town, Aqua Dream and Sunseakers are good trips.. the Dalaman Departure (turtle beach and mud baths and the ruins) are also a nice way to end your hoilday,,
overall a very friendly and clean to spend your holiday, All the staff made our holiday a special one.
A great place also to meet new friends,
Thanks again all at the Ekin Fee, Trev and Kaz x

We stayed at the Ekin Apartments for the first 2 weeks of June 2009 on a bargain last minute deal. We'd been through Marmaris before on Gulet Boat holidays and were a little apprehensive as Marmaris is quite a busy place. We went with the intention of having lots of day trips and using the hotel as a base.
We needn't have worried! We'd arrived at 3 am very tired but Mo was there to say hello. By the time we'd surfaced at 11 am we were greeted by Richard and Izzy in the restaurant who made us feel genuinely welcome. That set the tone at the Ekin for the rest of our stay. Mo, Mustafa and Tony also made us feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble.I think some hotels and restaurants in the UK could learn a lot from these guys! They work very hard to take care of everyone's needs and it comes through as we were very happy throughout our stay.
The hotel has 2 pools as it has taken over the apartments, one is slightly bigger than the other. The apartments themselves are quite basic - but clean, well maintained and it met our expectations.
The food in the Ekin restaurant was great home-cooked style food. Although we had a self catering apartment we mostly ate in the restaurant as the prices were comparable with the supermarkets and the standard was good. We also liked the cocktails in the bar!
One night we had a meal down on the harbour but it was twice as expensive, the waiter's attitude was appalling and the food pretty poor quality - we even sent one of the dishes back as it was that awful!
We would definatley consider going back to the Ekin hotel, small friendly and well worth a look.
A big thumbs up to a great team (Richard, Izzy, Mustafa, Mo, Tony, Bossman and the chefs) for an excellent stay and a special thank you to Richard (sorry its taken a few weeks to get around to leaving this review - back to work for us now!)

With Best wishes
