Fantastic Hotel!!!!
Reviewed 6 days ago

I booked this hotel for my family for the NYE in Bodrum. The views are amazing and the hotel is one of a kind with a beautiful design. Most importantly, every staff members in this hotel are amazing. They go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. The SPA is great but the jacuzzi is colder than other hot tubs I experienced in other hotels. This is the second time I stayed in this hotel and I remembered that they do not keep the jacuzzi warm which is a drawback. Other than, I would stay in this hotel again in a heart bit and I can't wait to go back to Turkey to enjoy the excellent services and the experiences this hotel offers.

We had an awesome stay. The view is stunning and our room was excellent. Staff were very attentive and helpful with all requests. The only downside is that it is not in walking distance to the center of Bodrum (but you have the view.....).

Relaxing 10 days

We were very nervous as this was our first time in Turkey but within 15 minutes of being at the Marmara all our worries were gone. We were shown to the room where a complimentary bottle of wine was waiting and we sat on the balcony enjoying the evening view overlooking the town.
All the staff were very helpful and the hotel was spotlessly clean.
It really was a shame to come home. Would definitely recommend this hotel to unwind and relax

Wonderful stay

We had the most amazingly relaxing stay at this lovely hotel. The staff are attentive and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They manage to do this and yet create a very laid back atmosphere. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We had a sea view room. As The Marmara is above the hill the view over Bodrum is incredible. The walk down to town is fine but the hill means the return walk might be a little too much. Happily the taxis are plentiful and cheap (£2.5). Only minor gripes are would prefer a walk in shower and music by the pool could do with turning down a notch. Not enough to even dent our super holiday
