I've just come back from Marmaris park where my family spent two wonderful weeks in July. It's my second trip to Marmaris, the first one was 7 years ago, and i'd say I can't resist the charm of this town, it's special atmosphere, liveliness and cosiness in the same time. I chose the hotel carefully because it was my first overseas "experience" with 3 year-old son so it had to meet both my and his expectations and most reviews i'd read about Marmaris park were truely positive.You won't find anything posh, chic there but general impression it gives is relaxation and pleasure from watching the beautiful surroundings and breathing sea air filled with pine aroma. My sea-view room on the ground floor in a bungalow ( about 20 metres from the sea)made me feel like living on the beach.The sea was wonderful-clear, calm, warm enough to inspire you to swim. I admit, sandy beaches are more fun for kids, but my son learnt to jump into the sea ( from the pier), which is great for a little boy. The beach isn't crowded, with a plenty of free sunbeds. The swimming pool area isn't that tranquil. Surprisingly, many tourists prefer chlorine pools to the salty sea so most sunbeds are occupied and it's much noisier than on the beach.
Well, now some words about Russian monsters, colourfully depicted in many British reviews, who spoil everyone's holidays I'd read about it before my trip and during my stay in marmaris park hotel i tried to find the examples of Russian "rudeness" and on the other hand, the .signs of British politeness. I agree the Russians hardly ever smile to strangers, but The British don't do it either. I've seen a British smile just few times, i haven't heard any "good morning or hello, and it seems to me only middle-aged ladies say sorry. Generally speaking, the British don't look less unfriendly or cold than the Russians. Actually, I watched the British mostly at mealtimes, because they normally spent their days around the pool, and i didn't participate in the hotel's "nightlife" due to my kid. To be honest, the atmosphere in the cafe is far from relaxing, it's real bustle , but i don't think only the Russians make it. It's a common situation in all buffets. I didn't notice any problems queueing for food besides fruit. I'm wondering why people make such a fuss about it. The Russians complain about lack or a little choice of fruit in the hotel and the British complain about greedy Russians. Well, I don't believe somebody was starving there, but if you want to enjoy your meal it's better not to choose "all inclusive" and go to the restaurants for dinners. Personally, i try to avoid any queues and pushy people, it doesn't matter if they the Russians, the British etc. Making stereotypes in your mind can attract to you only people who suit it Be friendlier, more polite yourself and you'll see people with charming smiles around:-)
