“What a fantastic hotel... GET YA DABBERS OUT !!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

just returned from the epic and had a brilliant time! travelling with a family of 13 everyone was happy with the hotel and the facilities it provided..

the food was acceptable with plenty to choose from. even for the fussiest eaters amost the family.. breakfast wasnt to most of out likings but why complain when you can get a full english for £2 across the road at umuts cafe .. were breakfast was always served with a smile by there excellant staff. on a night time in the epic the food was nice with always plenty to choose from like curry, pasta, kebabs, chicken, turkey and loads more.

entertainment round the pool was ok with the waiters doing there party dancers. however elvis was an entertainer in hisself always walking around with a smile on his face and very cheerful , even when he had manflu!!! the bingo was also good on a afternoon and the bingo song always made us laugh.

the rooms were clean and nice to stay in ..they were cleaned daily and had a view across the pool and the mountains what more would you want to wake up to.. the hotel is set in quiet a lively area of armutalan with plenty of bars to keep you entertained!! also with one of the best exchange rates in marmaris...

the tattoo shop in the hotel is very good also most of the party got tattos and everyone with pleased with what they got.

have booked to return in june and cant wait to go back ! the epic is a very pleasant place to stay and im counting down the days to return

Nearly at the end of a 2 week holiday here and all 4 of us are disappointed. Ignored when we first arrived, no help from staff up the stairs with our cases... My dad is 70 years old and walks with a stick and really struggled. We were put in the 2 worst rooms in the hotel (situated right over bar area)... Trying to sleep was impossible because of the noise.. told we could move rooms but had already been here a week and didn't want the hassle. Not much interaction from bar staff, prices are ridiculous compared to other places. Not impressed with the food, every time I ate it I got a bad stomach. Praise to Elvis who is the friendliest member of staff here. Stayed in this area of Marmaris many times but will not be staying in this hotel again!!

Stayed at the Epic from 16th Sept for our usual 2 weeks holiday in Sunny Marmaris. Been going to marmaris for 13 years now, 1st stay at the Epic. Arrived early hours in the morning, check in prompt, was given a 1 bed apartment, which was unexpected & went for a bedtime tipple before bed. This hotel is in a wonderful location in the Armutulan area, near several bars & restaurants. The staff at the Epic are friendly and don't hassle you round the pool and the staff dancing around the pool is funny to watch. Elvis & Mehmet may seem abrupt but believe me these two or as nice with you as you are with them, some friendly banter. Elvis even got me in the foam party one afternoon. Me & my partner also played bingo which Katie & Selim do each day, a first for us & my other half even won(twice in one day). The hotel food is ok, good enough choice, but did go out several times as wanted to take our time when eating & relax. Cannot understand people waiting around from half five for evening meal, which starts at half seven. The only gripe I had with this hotel is the room cleaners/maid, they do not clean very well compared to other hotels in marmaris, very seldom cleaned out room & others there said the same, they did try last two days before leaving(to get a tip, which an envelope was left for). If the rooms were cleaned more and better this would be a fantastic hotel not just a good one, that said for the price we paid for half board we would return. All in all another good holiday, thank you all at the Epic.

Room Tip: Visit the Yes Sir restaurant across the road for great food and value for money, they do a good Engl...

Arrived early hours of morning,and immediately dissapointed.room on ground floor although large was very dirty and smelly,paint chipped everywhere,dirty shower cubicle.filthy fridge,dusty floor,dirty glass doors and balcony.having had to ask on a daily basis to have the room cleaned we discovered that the maid was actually a young man and was not doing the cleaning to any standard.the maid got changed and the difference was amazing but the damage had been done.

We stayed here for 10 nights at the start of September,myself, my boyfriend and two other couples.

When we booked (through onthebeach.com) we chose a room upgrade (as did our friends who booked through other booking companies) but i don't think we received this upgrade. Our friends had spacious rooms with large balconies in the attic, we had a tiny room with a tiny balcony facing a wall. Despite this the room was lovely, clean and quiet, with comfortable beds, excellent tv (and signal) and a nice clean bathroom.
The pool area was lovely, with the guys having immense fun on the slide. Drinks are quite expensive, but weren't crazy, and we weren't pestered into buying as other reviews say.
Elvis is hilarious. Singing (badly) along to Elvis songs, pushing people into the pool etc. The rest of the staff are also extremely friendly.
We were half board and found the food lovely. Breakfast had continental and cooked options including pancakes.
The evening meal was good too, with something for even the fussy eaters.

Armutulan is a great area to stay. Plenty of bars and restaurants, and a Kipa (tesco) right up the street. The bus to marmaris is only 2lira each and takes about 5/10mins. Or to walk takes about 20/25mins.
Marmaris beach is beautiful. And the bars there are great. The marina is also lovely.

I would recommend the excursion shop across the road. Batman is the man to see. The jeep safari is great!

All in all it was a brilliant holiday. Only thing to watch out for is the reckless drivers!

Lots to be said regarding The Epic. Let me say that the hotel isn't shabby by all means, very clean and well run but there was alot more to be expected.

The hotel is about 1-2 miles away from the centre of Marmaris, it's not a bad walk if you feel you can cope with the heat but the local dolmus runs every 5 mins costing 2tl each. If you want to go to Icmeler then you need to get 2 buses with the second bus from the centre of Marmaris costing 2.50tl each. There is a market that runs every Wednesday and Friday (might be Saturday so apologies if I'm mistaken) in Icmeler which does get very busy.

Back to the hotel, The rooms are basic, twin, double and family rooms with either a pool or main road view. Don't be put off by the main road view, yes it's the main strip to the area with all bars and night life going on till 1am but the balcony doors are pretty much double glazed with very little noise getting through to keep you up at night. With regards to how often the rooms are cleaned, well from my own experience I didn't have any issues with this, towels changed daily and bedding every 2 days. I did hear a few stories from guests I spoke to who had experienced having to ask for sheets etc to be changed but on requesting at reception, the beds were changed straight away.

Food: well your in Turkey so don't expect sausage and bacon unless you go out and about to local bars that offer full Englishes. Main foods Inc local cereals, toast, olives, different types of meat, fruit, pancakes, omelette, beans (you get the picture). The pool bar offers meals during lunch reasonably priced with burgers, pizza, sausage bacon, sarnys etc all available. Evening meals run quite late for my liking at 7.30pm till 9pm. There is always something different each night from curries, kebabs, Chinese style meals and even a turkey roast on Sunday. You get other extras such as salad, rice and chips so should be something for everyone to be fair.

The pool area is great for a sun tan but there isn't any entertainment for kids I'm afraid. There's a pool slide and once a week they do a foam party for 15 mins. The bar staff with Elvis and his team try there best to keep everyone happy but there really is only so much they can do.

Entertainment, this is a real let down for me personally. Which ever bar you go to on the strip, whatever entertainment they are doing the hotels outside bar will be doing the same. Most of the acts are the bar staff themselves doing the work but occasionally they will bring in an entertainer who works all the bars that night. Most nights range from karaoke to juggling with knives and even a snake made an appearance. I think the location comes into play with this because you are limited to where you can go and what you do and if you do go to the centre of Marmaris, most entertainment doesn't start till 10pm, this can be frustrating if you have kids so you do feel forced to stay in the hotel or the area.

The hotel is great, staff are fab but the location is a let down. Unfortunately I won't be staying here again but definitely enjoyed my 2 weeks here.

Have been here since 14th September. when booking paid for a room upgrade however on a arrival at the hotel discovered we had the smallest room in the hotel (floor plan on the back of hotel door confirmed this) took 5 nights before we were moved to a room we'd paid for. Hotel is anything but clean, toilet seat and rubbish was left outside a hotel door for 4 days before it was moved. Hallways and stairs have not been hoovered and washed at all since we've been here table clothes in resturant heavily stained however reception is spotless this is being cleaned every time we walk through it!! Some positives food is good lots of choice for breakfast and dinner. Would highly recommend Marmaris but not this hotel have been to Marmaris many times before so thankfully knew of lots of things to do to avoid us having to be in the hotel for too long and so far have had an amazing holiday. Hotel I would highly recommend is club Anastasia amazing hotel the only reason we didn't stay here was because it was fully booked!
