“Amazing stay at the albatros!!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Stayed at the Albatros between September and October 2012 just me (carly) and my boyfriend (Steve). and what can I say we both had an amazing stay . Not going comment on the bad points people have made because we didn't have one bad thing to say about the place. our apartment was great loads of space and the cleaners always did a great job and were always friendly. the reception staff always went out of their way to help us with any issue we had! and as for the bar staff (Brian, Ali, Carlos and Volkan) they were amazing too always on hand whenever we needed something, they made sure the pool and bar area were always tidy and never made us feel pressured into eating or drinking there if anything they were the only people who didnt try and make us eat or drink there unless we wanted. all the staff are a credit to the hotel and the hotel itself is a great place to go as you can relax if you want or have a lively holiday. we would most definitely return!!! oh and as for the people who complain about the mosque .... Hello .... they are all over turkey and i slept great the whole holiday.

Room Tip: we had a room on 5th floor in albatros 2 was great views and also nice and big just make sure to ask...

On arrival to the hotel we were greeted and had our bags carry to our room, staff seemed very helpful and friendly however after a few days they became very rude, with one member of staff completely blanking us and turning away when we would make the effort to say hello on more than one occasion, the only time he would acknowledge us was when the owner was around.The same member suddenly became very friendly as we waited for or bus to take us home obviously looking for a tip.There was a man on reception in the day who was always very polite, friendly and helpful.

The bar staff were always friendly especially Carlos.We didn't eat at the hotel much in the nights because we wanted to look around and try the many restaurants in the area.However this did change the atmosphere with the bar staff who didn't seem to like it when we were eating elsewhere, they would not make as much as an effort and would pay more attention to people who were most likely to spend more money at the bar.

The beach is about 10-15 mins walking distance location was good overall. The rooms where basic and you had to buy your toilet paper. Air conditioning was £30 a week and safety deposit boxes were £10.

Not a bad hotel, We would not return to this hotel.

Just got back from these great apartments with my girlfriend and 4 year old son.Clean,basic ideal for a self catering holiday if your not going to be cooking a 5 course meal in your room. We found the room had plenty of space and appliances to be enough to get by. Saying this we did eat out most of the time (why go on holiday to do the washing up) breakfast 99p at most places about 50p more at the Albatros but your sat next to the pool while having you breakfast and the breakfasts are good not the best in the area but good we also neber found the to start ignoring us when we didnt eat there. The staff do pass you a menu straight away which having read other reveiws on here some people dont like,but i think they are doing there job & no different for any other place in Turkey where they serve food. Evening meals here are also cheap and Very good but not alot of choice. Again we never felt any ignorance towards us when we said we going out for food .The pool area can be a little slippy in some areas round the pool but to be expected i would think like any pool, the pool its self is spotless and no stop tidy up from all the bar staff. Now for the service this was the best part all were great Legend Ali,Brian the Joker,Volkan the Great & smiling Carlos nothing too much trouble make you feel like part of the family fantastic with all the kids they never got bored realy made the holiday. Thank You All. Rob

This was our fourth visit to Turkey but the first time we had stayed in these apartments,the facilities were very basic would have liked a toasted so we could have at least done some for breakfast, the main pool was very crowded with sun bed's and couldn't walk around the pool properly and was very slippery.
There was a notice in the rooms that any bedding or towels that were founded to be stained with sun lotion or anything would be charged for but we found the bedding arrived with stains already on them. Also this hotel didn't supply toilet rolls like other places we have stayed in.
It was abit more expensive than other places to purchase food or drinks, we also had a tip box envelope left at the end of our stay which we found to be a bit out of order as we felt you then had to leave a tip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in block 2 so you cant hear the cockerels in the morning and the prayers over the lou...

Just returned from two weeks at Albatros stayed in a two bed apartment with a friend , the apartment was large plenty of space , cooking facilties basic which was fine for us , never intending to do any cooking. Quite alot of noise from cockerals and nearby mosic. Also the air conditioning was only in one of the bedrooms so wouldnt want to be there july /august .
The food at these apts was very good and the staff very friendly and helpful. The pool area was at times too noisey and not very relaxing so we headed for the beach most of the second week.
A 15 min walk to the beach which is a flat easy walk, plenty of bars and restuarants close by.
There were quite a few children at these apartments and they all seemed to be enjoying thereselfs which was nice to see, these are family run apartments which are a good base for exploring marmaris. The staff worked very hard to see everbody was enjoying there stay . Would also like to agree with other reviewers regarding the maid and tips, didnt mind her leaving a tip enevelope in room evening before but felt hounded the next day when she kept appearing in room.

Room Tip: apts in block one that over look the garden are very noisey due to cockerals.

I and some friends/relatives went here for my Birthday! Our age group ranged from 29-55. We all thorughly enjoyed our stay, thanks to the albatros staff!! The family who run the Apartments are lovely and always there if needed. The staff cannot do enough for you! As well as this everyone were so so friendly! My friends wanted a birthday cake for me and the staff took all details and had the cake ready when needed with every detail correct, nothing was to much bother! The food was amazing too, i never had 1 meal that i was dissatisfied with. Even meals adapted to personal request was no problem.

The entertainment was great too. There was something on every evening, something to suit everyone.

The overall standard of hygiene was immaculate!! The staff were on top form, taking glasses and dirty ashtrays!!

The apartments were of a good standard, everything you could need including a clean decent shower the only thing lacking was maybe a toaster!
Myself and my guests had locked ourselves out several times, a couple of times at unsociable hours and everytime there was somebody to help!

I took this holiday in may 2012 and was so impressed i went back with my son and 11 others in august and once again had a great quality happy stay! The staff once again had a great rappor with all the children and adults. My son adored the staff. Im going back again in may 2012!

I have only 1 negative point, the area surrounding the pool is quite slippery when wet!! There is a cockeral that wakes some people but not everyone :) it is in the distance but very local lol....:)

In response to a review above i dont think the staff etc can be held responsible for the kind of guest they have staying!
