We had never been to Turkey before, but we are deffinately going again. What made our holiday, was the people. They were fantastic. I know that they wanted our money in the way of tips, but they bent over backwards to earn the tips. We stayed at the Hotel Ares, which was fantastic when the owner was away, but had a bad feeling when she was there, she is rude and unhelpful and wont let you take any food or drink to your room if you havent bought it from her – not even bottled water. There is loads to do in Marmaris, and most of the tours are really cheap and include your meals and drinks in the price. A must for everybody is the Jeep Safari, bit be prepared to get wet and dirty, and take the biggest water gun you can find and as much water as you can carry. We are deffinately going back, but will probably stay in a different hotel.
After being aprehensive about going to turkey, i had reservations about booking this, especailly as going all inclusive. I enjoyed the holiday an found the food / people very friendly and had a really good time, the Bizaars were excellent fun and lots of fun haggling, we went at a good time in September as they were preparing to close down for winter so if going to shop then i would suggest this as a good time to go. would recommend as a couples holiday or somewhere for a quiet get away.
Hi we went to marmaris last year and we had a whale of a time the hotel we stayed in was absolutely amazing it is three star but you woukd have thought it was five star and the food was to die for Ive never stayed at a better hotel anywhere and Ive been a few places we are going back this year again and can’t wait the staff are absolutely amazing we were just down the road from the paradise bar which is a great bar and ten minutes from the beach
