“A lovely good value holiday in Turkey”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I stayed here with my fiance last year. The hotel advertised as 5 star and some guests were upset as they thought it would be like the Hilton! Its not the Hilton but for the money we paid we were more than satisfied.
We did not get the room we wanted and asked to change a few times even then it wasn't the best.
The food was not very good - typical buffet and all tasted the same and very bland.Lots to choose from and I loved the pan cakes!

The pool was fun and we went on the slide a few times :) - big kids!
The trip to turtle island with the mud - spa was amazing! Don't pay the trip sales man the first price he asks for though. Great value and we saw a turtle! In season you can see lots of turtles! and the island is stunning! a must!
DO NOT GO on the dinner cruise trip unless you like a chav style party with gangnam style dancing and marcarena type music with terrible cold food. however its only £5 each! the Lady on the boat is very rude! was very entertaining for all the wrong reasons.
The spa is very good and I especially enjoyed the Turkish bath package. I had two hot stone massages - the stones were hot though --- burning too hot!
This hotel is not on the sea front but a short walk away.love the hotel cat! and especially loved chilling out in the evening on the double swing style sofas on the pool veranda which has a very romantic feel.
We stayed here at the end of the season so got a good deal and was quiet
I wouldn't stay at this hotel again as it was nothing special but no real complaints.
Marmaris was very beautiful place and we had a lovely romantic holiday with some lovely walks along the sea front.

Room Tip: Good luck on getting a good room. We were unlucky,. If you want to guarantee a good room pay the pre...

me and my two children (aged 10 and 7 at the time) had a fantastic time at grand pasa last april. We stayed for two weeks and every day they had different entertainment on for the children and shows that the adults could also enjoy and join in with. The staff were all lovely and really friendly and nothing was a problem for them, the rooms were very nice/clean/comfortable and were also cleaned daily with clean towels etc,air conditioning was brilliant,did use it in the day time as it was quite warm but in the night time i used the heat option as it does get a bit chilly at night in april. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, lots of variety,salad bar had lots to choose from,fair selection of tasty main dishes and the desserts were delicious!! the drinks were nice,especially the cocktails :-) The pool is brilliant for the kids, they loved the 3 waterslides and the entertainment team always has something going on for them to join in with if they want to.The hotel is only a short walk from the beach which is also lovely and there are lots of shops and bars nearby if you fancy a night away from the hotel.There are also lots of boat trips/jeep safari trips,waterpark trips etc that you can book through the hotel which are great fun and perfect for a day out if you fancy it. The turkish bath/massage is a must and i also had an album made by the photographer of me and the boys which was a good price and i now have a lovely album with some great photo's to look back on to remind us of our stay. I loved this hotel and have booked to go back in july this year for two weeks, i really can't wait.Another album to add to the memories :-D

We were a group of 6 couples staying at this hotel last October on an all inclusive basis. Despite reading some negative reports we all went with an open mind as we like to form our own opinions. Hotel itself is great with lots to do and a superb pool area, meals were as you would expect from a large all inclusive hotel, a wide variety of choice, yes some were repeated two days in a row but there was always something new and the quality was very good. I think that some people expect too much! Yes some of the staff were a bit miserable but it was coming to the end of their long season and overall they were ok. Rooms were good and the maid service was excellant. We have just booked again for next year so it cant be that bad eh?

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool can be noisy on a night-time

We stayed here in end Oct/beginning Nov as a family of 4. We were so disappointed. We were allocated 2 rooms with no interconnecting door and we were refused a spare key to the children's room. After a long journey you don't want to be arguing but we did and after standing our ground, eventually received a key. Our original rooms backed on to the grand nature hotel and disco strip bar, which we were advised stayed open until 4 in the morning. We asked to be moved and ended up at the front of the hotel, this was still very noisy until gone midnight each night. The rooms were kept very clean each day although the carpets were very tired, ours had a large iron burn on it. It was end of season when we stayed and the service showed this. The staff could not be bothered and were very rude, their catch phrase being ' end of season,' this was the reply even when we asked for milk for our coffee!! The food was good for the first week but terrible for the second. It was reheated morning, lunch and evening, which resulted in cauliflower for breakfast!! Also in the 2nd week the hotel started to shut down, so beware if you go end of season - the supermarket shut, pool bar, slides, no beach bus, in fact everything was being packed away around us and the service was non existent. The staff were very rude to my teenage daughter and made her feel very awkward. The problems we encountered may just have been due to it being end of season, however we did not pay end of season price and were very disappointed that this was by no means 5 star treatment, food , facilities etc.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet pool view room. In fact insist on this as we were refused!!

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of staying here last April-May and gave recommended people ever since.. We stayed all inclusive and the waiters/bar staff/entertainment team couldn't do enough for us.If you stay here make sure you have Turkish bath on your first day and lots of massages (so worth it!!!) the entertainment team were fab, with great pool side entertainment and organise a bus taking you into bar street (great club and bar area) for about 3 GBP. The man who maintains the pools was great and such an asset to the hotel. Location is a bus away from centrum and a bus away from Icemeler (recommend both) centrum has amazing restaurants and markets and Icemeler has a stunning beach!! Only thing in Marmaris is you have to haggle constantly but my boyfriend is good at that so wasn't an issue..
Breakfast had a great variety with chef making omelettes, pancakes and eggs and a great variety of meats.. Only thing I would suggest ignore fresh fruit.
Lunch was fresh with brilliant selections and the pool side grill bar was a great afternoon fix. Dinner was also great and yes, sometimes repetitive but that's to be expected..
Gym is basic bit has everything I needed.
All in all we would 100% return to the gran pasa :)

Stayed at the Grand Pasa with my girlfriend during mid June 2012.
Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by a smiley faced porter who wouldn't let us carry our bags up the 5 steps to the lobby. A welcoming touch after a good 8 hours travelling but probably not needed. The lobby was HUGE and resembled what I imagine the inside of a sultans palace would be! Reception staff were fairly short, sharp and to the point. About the same level of arrogance you get from someone who doesn't hold the door for you in a London Underground tube station. Our room was excellent, comfy bed, balcony, tv, out of the sun in the searing mid afternoon heat (just what you want for a pasty skinned Scotsman).
One tip I will give you is TIP!! Tips can be an godsend when it comes to getting the most from your holiday here. Slip the pool man 10 lira and hell set you up a nice parasol with two sunbeds by the pool, when every other sunbed has been 'towel reserved' by the English and ze Germans. Bar staff will sneak some smirnoff in your 'voddy and coke' for a few lira here and there. Beats the staple 'watered down potato juice with roller cola'.
Entertainment were brilliant both night and day. However embarrassing the activity may seem just go for it! You wont be dissapointed. We opted to go on the bus to bar street one night which was good fun but drinks there are very expensive, £4-£5 for a watered down vodka lemonade. Open air clubs are not as cool (temperature) in 28 degree night-time heat. One dance and your sweating like a cornered nun!
The food was brilliant for an all inclusive buffet rammy. Loads of burgers, chips, chicken nuggets junk food (yes, just like they've got back 'ome). Id urge you to try the fresh fish and traditional turkish lamb + chicken dishes they are delicious!
Jimmy, who punts flyers for the on-site spa is a legend. Just sit back and have a chat with him instead of snuffing your nose at first sign that money is involved. He'll sort you out with a nice spa experience in the turkish baths.
The cleaning lady on our floor was extremely nice and spoke very good english. After a long chat with her about life, the universe and everything she made up a towel swan with scattered rose petals on our bed. A lovely gesture and a shame to destroy it when 'getting down to business' late night. Tip none the less!
Overall I would recommend this hotel to people of similar ilk. Just dont go into your stay with white gloves, uv-lamp and a clipboard. Make the most and just relax and enjoy it. The turkish men can be flirty and annoying to some but just take it with a pinch of salt and give them a slating back. BANTER IS UNIVERSAL!
Will return to Marmaris again sometime (maybe April/October when its not so searingly hot!). If so will definitely will be staying at the Grand Pasa.
