We have just returned from 7 nights here and would highly recommend this hotel. We loved everything about the hotel -the room was very spacious and comfortable and was situated on the ground floor with a gorgeous view of the city and sea from the terrace and garden in front. The views from the hotel restaurant and main pool are spectacular. We ate in the hotel quite a few times and the food is really good and very good value for the quality and setting.

What really makes this hotel so special though is the staff who were all so helpful and polite and just couldn’t do enough to help.

We don’t often go to the same place more than once but I have a feeling we will definitely be back in Bodrum and the Marmara - we haven’t had such a relaxing holiday for a long time!

Manager gets 10 stars

This is not a 5-star hotel in any city of the world, including Bodrum. How these reviews were generated is hard to say, but it was not by average international travelers who are accustomed to luxury accommodations giving accurate ratings. To be frank, we booked the hotel for three nights in June, but left after 30 minutes. The entrance, the lobby, the pool and the room were all decidedly less than what I have come to expect of 5 or 4 star hotels. On the positive side, the manager was exceptionally professional and allowed us to cancel all nights without a penalty. I give the manager 10 stars.


Loved it , first of all i was upgraded since i am a vip member to a beautiful suite that overlooked the ocean , it was so beautiful that we didn’t want to leave the room . The classiness and the decor of the hotel is indescribable , totally out of this world. The views are amazing especially near the pool since the hotel is on a hill . As for the breakfast it is so classy and elegant with much variety . Will definitely come back.
