We have just returned from this excellent hotel, we spent 11 days there and had the most fantastic holiday. We had a room with full sea view and what a magnificent view. The room was beautifully decorated and kept spotlessly clean, it had a double bed and a single bed so plenty of space, also a great ensuite with large power shower. The weather was very hot every day, so the aircon was a great bonus at night. The food was extremely good and very varied, and the restaurant was very well organised by the restaurant manager Ferat, who was really friendly and helpful, he spoke to all the guests and made everyone very welcome. The staff work very hard and they are pleasant and polite. The bar staff are also very friendly and well organised by the bar supervisor Cobra who was great fun. There was a lovely pool and we could always get sunbeds no matter what time of day. There were also always beds available on the private beach. The evening entertainment was ok, not that much going on but always nice places to sit and have a quiet drink or chat to other guests. The quality of the AI drinks was good. It was a pleasant walk to either Marmaris centre or Icmeler, all along the coastal walkway. This year in Turkey we found there was very little hassle from the shopkeepers, which was much better. The markets are great fun, and always great bargains to come home with. I must mention the ISTANBUL WATCH CENTRE in Icmeler run by Murat & Ozgur, where you can buy watches with confidence, there is no hassle and they sell fantastic quality watches and also do very good repairs, he repaired my watch that hasn't worked for 25+yrs and is now going perfect.
One word of warning beware of the hairdresser who stands outside a shop known as 'Tony & Guy' on the same street as the watch centre in Icmeler, he will try to get you inside his shop to give you his card and then do 'free' treatment, ie shave etc He will then try to charge a ridiculous price when finished. When you refuse he threatens violence and turns very nasty.We didn't pay him what he asked and gave him what we thought was a fair price from prices of other hairdressers around. BUT BEWARE OF THIS CON MAN.
Overall a lovely holiday and will be returning to this hotel.
