Have just got back today after 3 weeks at The Epic, and just wanted to say what a fantastic place. Rooms are basic, but given the price i expected this. However, although basic, they were very clean and the maid service was good. The staff are really friendly and can't do enough to make you feel welcome. I agree with the comments of an earlier review about Elvis & Antonio...what great guys....they helped make our holiday too! As for the earlier comment of the reception staff being rude, I can honestly say that I found them quite the opposite, and in fact, they were very friendly and helpful, and great with my children. This was my first time in Turkey, and after my experience at the epic, i was pleasantly surprised!!!

This hotel is very basic so if your a hotel snob stay clear. there are mixed reviews about this hotel and it is more about what your use to.
The rooms are clean and very basic, prices are reasonable, but you can get a breakfast outside for a pound.
Staff are freindly but receptionist can be rude sometimes.
If your looking for a basic hotel iwth good faciliteies i would reccomand this hotel.
We booked all are trips with no name travel agency acros the raod half the price then the reps. the guys there are very good and adam gave us a good discount and children travel free. The turkish bath and turtle irland is a must.
I would not go back to this hotel but i no people who have enjoye themselfs and returned many times.

Well i must admit i read the reviews before i went i was a bit nervous, as some of the reviews did put me off but i'm glad to say they were proved wrong. The hotel/apartments were excellent. The best holiday had in turkey so far and i've had more than a few. The rooms were spacious and clean. Maid came every two days and towels cleaned twice a week, but would be changed sooner on request with no complaint by staff. The staff were very freindly and helpful and lots of fun, espeacialy to the children. Even the receptionist was pleasent and in other reveiws was found rude-rubbish he was nice. Can change your money at reception same rate as centre so very convienient. You were asked on leaving the hotel to eat in there dream boys restaurant which is the same everywhere you stay, did eat in there a few times and was very nice. Never hassled you if were honest and said wanted to try somewhere different. The best trip place to get your trips from was over the road at No Name travel agency, all of them charge similar prices but lot cheaper than reps and if book quite a few can haggle for cheaper price!!!!! We booked quite a few so got good price altogether. Quad safari was great and kids loved it. Also the diving which had done before as have our certificates so got our own instuctor. Talk of town show really good, but so many hard to get them all in in a week, so do different ones every time we come. Will be definatley be staying here next year as can't really find any negatives to the place, except on occasion they do play the music at the pool very loud but it isn't all the time...........Thanks for a great holiday will be back.

Just got back from Marmaris yesterday. Me and 3 friends stayed in the Epic Apartments on the outskirts of the town, which were great, but about a half hour walk to the beach and other things around there. If you can handle the heat (at least 40 degrees C every day) it's a great place to go for a cheap break. We booked two trips through the tour companies in the town (theyre on most streets) and they were OK and about 50% cheaper than First Choice-organised ones, so don't worry about blowing a lot of cash on trips. We found a very nice one run by a man calling himself Maguiver, who offers trips around the bay for 30 lira (which is about 15 quid). One thing to be wary of is Bar Street. Although there are dozens of bars and clubs available, it is all horrendously over-priced (about 2 or 3 times more than elsewhere), so don't plan to go there every day! Overall though, Marmaris is a brilliant little town, full of friendly people who shake you hand every time you walk past. Highly recommended

I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend last week. We have been to Turkey before but first time to Marmaris. The hotel was on the outskirts of the town but its a nice walk in or you can catch the dolmus and it will take you into the centre.

The rooms were basic but clean and the towels were changed regularly. Air con you do have to pay for but it is a must with the high temps. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was just the usual turkish breakie which we both like but there is other options like full english but you will have to pay for it. We ate once in the hotel and the food was fine but I like to go different places and there is alot to choose from in that area like steak houses, chinese, kebabs and chip shops.

Straight across from the hotel is No Name Travel. We booked a turkish bath, jeep safari and a lazy day boat trip. We did compare them to the rep prices and they were much cheaper! Please book with No Name. The guys were great and looked after us very well . The turkish bath was really nice and you get a oil massage included in the price. The jeep safari is a must we had such a laugh and great fun for all ages we felt like big kids again. And the boat trip was very relaxing, chilled out day and it was all inclusive so we got our lunch and as many drinks as we wanted. There is lots more trips we would of liked to have done but just couldn't fit them all in but we will def come back next year sometime and come two weeks as one week was just not long enough.

We will def be back to marmaris. And I def recommend this hotel for a brill holiday.

Stayed at the Epic appartments in June July this year for 2 weeks appartments clean spacious and maids service every day .food served at the pool and outside resterant exellent value for money. There was entertainment on in the restarunt every night which was good fun but after the first week it got a bit boaring. there was some nights 20 of us and the restarunt made good discounts some nights the kids ate free.Music by the pool was to loud made it difficult to relax and enjoy the sun when you asked staff to turn the music down they were offended.There was a small shop in the foya of the hotel that you could buy most everything in but you were not allowed to take water lollys etc to the pool that had been purched in the shop.
The shoot at the pool was great for the kids but it never went on at the time specified but it went off at 4 oclock no matter what. I would stay at the Epic again and recomend it to anyone.
There was supermarkets near by and a walk in to the town centre took about 20mins or you could take a bus which dropped you off at MC Donalds in town. A must would be talk of the town this costs around £15 pound per adult and £7 pound a child its a great show with drag acts the show is for all the family and includes a meal well worth the money

Stayed: June 2008
