Although there is nothing fundamentally wrong with this hotel, it is not 5 star standard. Having read a review below where someone went last year and then returned this year they found that the little luxuries, toiletries, dressing gown, slippers, mini bar etc were missing. The bed is on the firm side with a cellular blanket instead of sheets/duvet which was a little small for two people so we used the single blanket as well off the spare bed. The WIFI was intermittent but seems to work towards the end of the week in the hotel room. We booked a side sea view which we had to crane our necks to see the sea and overlooked the hotel opposite so we upgraded for £70 for a sea/pool view which was much better. The hotel is very clean except for the restaurant where the same tables cloths are used for b'fast, lunch and dinner so can be very soiled. The food is good, you just have to take a gamble on some of the things that you eat which is all the fun of going abroad. We did find that the drinks were weak, I could drink 6-7 vodka cokes and not feel much effect. The entertainment was pretty cringe-worthy sometimes and the entertainment team changed towards the end of the week so no more Jamal and Booboo who were the most entertaining and funny. The hotel does not really cater for children/teenagers. We had a Turkish bath in the hotel for £55 each for 2 hours and it was money well spent - full Turkish bath and full body massage. Although another couple we met only paid £45 each. You can get into Marmaris centre for 2TL and takes about 5 minutes in the blue bus which you can hail anywhere along the road. To get to Ichmeler you take the orange bus for 2.50TL. There is a good market on in Ichmeler on Wednesdays. You can walk from the hotel to Ichmeler and takes about an hour. All in all we had a good week away but did not feel the hotel warrants a 5 star status.
