Last year we stayed at Green Nature in Marmarus and didn't think that could be beaten (except the early morning noise in reception). Green Nature had the size, slides to the pool, good entertainment team and a wide choice of food. Hands down Turquoise wins in the battle of the hotels. It was smaller yes but that meant you weren't just another faceless customer, many of the staff knowing your name, or at least the name of your kids here. The receptionist knew our room number when collecting our keys. In fact all the staff were top rate, in particular April childrens entertainer, Ali "fat boy" her husband and lock up your daughters "ronaldo" Erin. The bar staff especially the manager and Emil were good, nothing too much trouble, though super-keen to take your finished plates-restaurant staff, winker and blinker girls we affectionately called them were friendly too.

The food for the most part was excellent with some really outstanding dishes. Possibly some more western desserts could be added, and the best Turkish delight you'll find, but only at breakfast. Plenty of drinks choice, cocktails are extra. Pool was mainly used by the kids as it was cold and chilly at night with no under cover evening area after the restaurant time. It was a good idea to have a little bonfire for the first few nights thought would have liked more of the fire acrobats and comedy shows which eventually kicked off. (we were one of the first guests of the season)

Rooms were cleaned well and again friendly cleaners. Would have preferred a sheet under the covers which were a little towel like. I was woken most morning to the call to prayer at 5am but maybe I didn't drink enough 'brandy' and coke, most people I think slept through it.

Watch out for the slippery areas around the pool with was cleaned so often. It is located 10 mins walk from the nice beach, with clear/turquoise water. The blue lagoon is 25 mins walk and £2 per head entry, kids 6+ £1 and under 5s free. Nice and secluded and areas of shade and sand where there are plenty of fish to spot. We had a nice time on a pedalo there negotiated 1/2 an hour for £4.

The 12 island boat tour cheaper booked through hotel than direct with the boat which was luxurious and a nice day trip, ice creams £2.50, beer £2.

Hotel was safe family friendly and good food. If it wasn't for the fact Easter is early the next two years we would come back. Apparently July and August is unbearably hot.

Last tip don't get a trolley from Dalaman airport in your return home, £1 for 10 meters, as you have to have luggage scanned immediately as you enter, and trolleys can't go past that point.

Great Hotel. Went with 6 friends just after the place opened but you would't know it!

The weather was great, the rooms were nice and the staff were exceptional, especially Ali, April and Eren (Ronaldo). All the staff were friendly and easy to get along with and took the time to get to know all of us. They even came out with us to Grand Boozy in Hisaronu two nights running despite having work the next day!

Dinner was great and the Turkish Bath they have there is brilliant. We went twice and would have happily gone more! I can't recommend it enough.

Ive stayed in some top hotels but this was definitely one of the most fun holidays I have been on and the staff really are the best I have come across! Top work. 10/10

We have just returned from the Turquoise Hotel and had an absolutely brilliant time! Ronaldo, Ali and April were amazing entertainers and looked after us so well taking us out to party and making sure we got home safely. All the staff members were attentive and polite ensuring we were always looked after.

The food was good, with a wide range of interesting desserts... The selection got better towards the end of the week which was understandable as we were very early in the season.

I would fully recommend that you have at LEAST one turkish bath at the hotel whilst you are there, they are fantastic! I would advise the exfoliator one at the beginning of the week and a departure one before you leave. An amazing addition to the holiday - amazing price too.

The rooms were all cleaned to a high standard and the cleaners were all very friendly.

We stayed at the turquoise hotel in September, the location was great, the food in the evening was fairly good, loved the deserts. The snack area could do better. In the day on 2 occasions we were moved because they were planning weddings to take place on the lawn - in front of the area we would be eating at in the evening, you almost felt you were in the wa, making your way to the restaurant, staff on the whole were very friendly, I would recommend the Al La Carte restaurant - the food was excellent.

The Turquoise is not a bad hotel. The bedroom and bathroom were pleasant and clean. Our cleaner was friendly, although her English was very limited.
The food was plentiful but limited in choice. There was a big salad selection, however, which suited the vegetarian in the family! The reception staff were never happy nor sociable but they did their jobs efficiently. Having stayed in higher-starred hotels in the resort, perhaps we expected too much from this hotel. Our stay was pleasant, without the 'wow' factor. As a budget option it is certainly a good choice.

A very nice hotel ideally located for spending great vacations in Turkey. You have both the joy and entertainment of the beach as well as that of the mountain. The turquoise hotel in Oludeniz, Dalaman, Turkey is only about five minutes away from Belcekiz beach and is right at the foot of Mount Badadaq. There is also the famous blue lagoon, many shops and restaurants and the surrounding is very astonishingly beautiful. There are lots of activities that you can undertake when staying at this hotel. The only thing that is quite difficult is getting there. The airport is about 60 km away so when you arrive, you have quite a ride; Apart that the hotel is in an ideal location offering serenity and all the modern facilities.
What‘s fantastic, with the room payment you have included breakfast, Lunch, Dinner. You get snacks also. At the pool side there are many different cocktails that are served. The hotel has a pool, a spa, a fitness center, and a beauty salon. Some activities that you can undertake when at the hotel include horse riding which is really fun especially being that the hotel is near the mountain. You can also take on different water sports, kayaking or boat trips to the nearby cities from where there are many things you can take for souvenir. Particularly fun if you are adept is to try paragliding or diving. You can take some courses but you need to be there for quite some time to really learn. The few lessons that you get will teach you the basic and you will not be able to actually do that on your own. There will be an instructor there with you. Jeep Safari is also thrilling.
The hotel offers a great place for relaxation especially after a day when you have been very active. The rooms are very well air conditioned, you have 24 hrs reception, internet access, a television, laundry and ironing service, car rental, and there is also a small medical facility so you can contact a doctor if in an emergency.
The staff is very friendly and professional. The hotel is very clean but it’s not anything extraordinarily luxurious. I would say its standard, the rooms are spacious and you can comfortably spend the night. It is quite secure and well, I can say it is affordable. You can expect to pay about $35 per night. When you think about it including breakfast, dinner, and lunch, it’s good.
