The Kaya Maris is very well located in Marmaris - about a half an hour walk to the centre of Marmaris but this walk is along the beach front strip of bars and restaurants, so there's plenty to look/stop at on route. Alternatively there is a bus which you can get from the main road by the hotel straight into Marmaris. (It's a green minibus and only 2 lira per person so about 60p! We asked to stop at 'the statue' which is near to bar street / the harbour). It was perfect for us being far enough out that it's quiet but very easy to get into the main town.
The hotel was lovely - quiet, clean and the staff were friendly. Our triple room consisted of a double and a single. The food was fine - pretty average but a little more variation could improve our experience. There was an outdoor chef in the mornings and evenings cooking a few things - it would have been good to have a sign showcasing what he was making though. The salad selection was lovely but the main courses always were rice or chips with some kind of piece of meat. There seemed a lack of easy and well-liked foods such as pizza and pasta.
I felt very safe in the hotel and despite the beach being very close I found that the pool area was ideal. There were always enough loungers and as all in inclusive guests we made use of the bar.
There was entertainment (dancing mostly) a couple of nights, but we were only aware of it because we were sat by the bar or could hear from our balcony. A sign or similar would have been handy, so that we could have known what was on and when.
Overall it was a very relaxed holiday and this was mostly due to the Kaya Maris providing such a nice atmosphere. I'd definitely go back, and if the menu was improved a little more I would have no complaints.
