Fantastic 'short break'
Reviewed 1 week ago

Perched above the stunning town of Bodrum, the Marmara was a gem of a find for our 'short 4 night break'. A downhill 15 minute walk from the Center the hotel has stunning views, first class service, great rooms will all you could require from a quality hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and very professional with your interest at heart at all times. The pool was welcoming and never any issue finding somewhere to lay in the sun. The final day we visited their 'Beach Club'. They organised the luxurious private transfer and we spent a perfect day - I would strongly recommend a visit for the day if you have a chance. Would definitely visit again as it really is a superb hotel that screams quality.

Outstanding hotel and service

A grey hotel on the hills overlooking Bodrum. Staff were helpful from the moment you arrive in the car park. Breakfast was a full spread of lovely fresh Turkish produce in a setting overlooking Bodrum Bay. In the evening if you want to relax we recommend watching the sunset from the Jacuzzi followed by a drink beside the open log fire, if you can persuade the house cat to move!!!

Totally recommended - we will go again

Otelden ayrılırken, misafirin arkasından su dökülmesi çok güzel bir ayrıntı..

The hotel ambiance is cosy, romantic and makes you truly feel like home..
Room cleanness absolutely perfect!!.
Fantastic location and definately the best place to be, if you wish to be in Bodrum center. Various facilities combined with a touch of art, and the peace/ tranquility you find there, will make you come back again ...

Fantastic experience and great views

This was our second stay here - just love it. We stayed in November and the weather was variable but the hotel is warm and cosy. The rooms have good air conditioning so if it is on the cool side it is easy to add a bit of heat.
Breakfasts are so good - great Turkish food and good quality. Service is excellent.
Dinner is good but the menu is limited. The restaurant has a wonderful open ‘pit’ fire which is so comforting and inviting.

Quaint, peaceful and amazing view
Reviewed 3 months ago

It was a great little place. No big brand name and no in your face activity. Peaceful quiet and very quaint, the hotel is like being in your own world and not having to interact with anyone if you don't want. A short walk to the bay and to some bars and restaurants. the relationship to the beach club is also great albeit a little far. A good stay.
