I have always defended the Marti resort having stayed there in 2006, 2007 and now in 2008.
The rooms in the 600 block are a disgrace. They are filthy, shabby and need a complete re-furbishment (I think the last time they were done was in 1970 when the hotel opened.)
The so called side sea view is a stretch and for £7 per person per night, a complete rip off.
Look at the deluxe rooms on their website and that is what a 5 star hotel should look like, no mould and grime on the walls and floors there - well they are almost exclusively reserved for Russian/German/Dutch guests, just ask the management. It is obvious that they are trying to get rid of the loyal British guests and do they care - a bit fat NO.
We could not believe how the prices had gone up since 2007 - about 50% !!!!!
We have booked for 2009 - will be going to the Marti, answers on a post card please?????More
