Overview

A blissful room or suite at a five-star retreat on the Turquoise Coast, with breakfast, lunch and dinner

The Lowdown

Sun? Check. Sand? Check. Sea? Check. Stunning views? Check – you get the picture. The newly renovated D-Resort Grand Azur, situated in lush tropical gardens, down the road from the bustling harbor town of Marmaris and steps from the shimmering Mediterranean, is a dreamy seaside retreat on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. Also known as the Turkish Riviera, this destination is still up-and-coming among Americans, though it has long lured Europeans with its balmy climate and sun-drenched scenery.
This TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence-winning resort boasts pretty sea and mountain vistas around just about every corner, from the beach bar and the steak restaurant – where curved, floor-to-ceiling windows certainly help – to the private Blue Flag beach, lagoon-like pool and sun-lounger terrace. The recently renovated rooms are luxurious, the in-house spa and fitness center are top-notch, and there’s a wealth of local activities to discover. Situated on the coast, close to the buzzing Marmaris nightlife, you’ll enjoy a location that, like the resort itself, is second to none.

Rooms and suites

The resort’s Land and Sea View rooms underwent a full renovation just last year, meaning everything here is all shiny and new. Each room has a balcony or terrace, and if you want to lock yourself away from it all then the beds are huge and comfortable, the LED TV boasts a load of international channels, and the windows are soundproofed. You’ll also have the option of lodging in a luxe and spacious suite. Found on the fifth floor, these sumptuous abodes boast gorgeous sea views and include a separate bedroom and sitting area.

Dining

D-Resort Grand Azur has an impressive selection of dining options. Daily buffet breakfasts include a wide range of hot and cold food, including fresh fruit and pastries. Evening meals consist of international cuisine, traditional Turkish meze plates and freshly grilled meat or seafood from the sizzling barbecues. Palmiye Restaurant has buffet meals on offer throughout the day, with live music in the evenings. Gourmet d’Azur has a weekly changing à la carte menu of seasonal produce. The fun and informal Beach Bar and Pool Bar allow waterside cocktail-sipping and dining.

Location

D-Resort Grand Azur is just steps away from the Mediterranean Sea and its idyllic coastline beaches, where watersports and sunbeds are readily available. The hotel is located just over a mile from the excellent nightlife, restaurants and boutique shops of Marmaris’ town center and a bit farther, but still less than two miles, from Marmaris castle. The town center is easily accessible by a short walk along the waterfront promenade, dolmus or taxi.

NOT a 5 star hotel at ALL anymore
Reviewed 2 days ago

Been to this hotel a few times now and what a shock this time gone down hill BIG style the food and the service in the restaurant is at a level of 2/3 star have to get own drinks clear own plates away and sometimes even set your own table whilst managers and some staff on mobile phones just not acceptable for a 5 star hotel at ALL the tables always dirty in restaurant,beach bar and also pool bar
There are a few very nice staff here more than can be said for new Ass general manager and guest relations you only have to read some of the ass general managers reply’s to some guest complaints and they are so rude and disgusting that shows you what kind of person she is
They say TUI are the new owners now well you definitely need to get your fingers out and get this 2/3 star hotel back up to a 5 star hotel
I spoke to at least 20 guests while there which they all said the same and they would definitely would not be returning to this hote neither will I or any of my family

Just returned from this hotel

Well here we go.i have mixed views about this hotel.we booked with TUI but flew out with Thomas cook.the private taxi to the hotel was excellent.on arrival the room we were given was not what we thought we had booked so be aware.it was the end of Ramadan and the hotel was full of Turkish and Arab guests,their children were very badly behaved. From talking to staff and guests it seems that TUI have purchased the hotel.and the second week I believe a management team we’re their certainty things improved as the food is below what one would expect.things need to change and hopefully it will get sorted out.the staff are excellent .special thanks to Canfeda in the restaurant,she’s a diamond.also to the guys at the beach bar.again excellent and Martin is brilliant.would I go back.yes if the attention to detail gets better and food is improved.the ala carte is extra and not two free as at other hotels.so be aware.it was our wedding anniversary so I was somewhat disappointed and not best please..our room overlooking next doors hotel pool was not good and we were keeper awake by noise and drunken guests swearing at night.not good.

Wednesday 18th

Pool Bar Lunch - cold fries again and recooked after being mixed with new fries. Spoke to management who will speak to staff as staff speaks little/no English. Staff at icecream and pancake station also dont speak any english, tends to be on their phone ignoring you, and when you eventually are able to explain what you want, it's not right (yes ice cream and pancakes). Also forks not washed and asking for forks, told no forks very sorry so I had to collect them from plates left on the side in dirty plates to give to staff to say please wash as customers walking way with cakes and pancakes with no forks. Staff doing job look more busy on their phone whilst customers waiting.
Room Service - No new towels, mini bar not replenished.

My comment - Tui has taken over D resort, now Grand Azur from 1st April, and I expected a better service as I visited Aqua Marine in Hurghada in March 2019 and the standards were high, 5 star, staff AMAZING.

Tui Grand Azur in Maramis is more like a 3 star where it's harder to find staff you can communicate with (English) even though their badge shows they speak english they can't understand. I have figured out the staff who speak english well and able to help translate; Ali & Cyrus in Entertainment. Forkan, waiter in Pool & Beach Bar and Ramazan Bar supervisor. Thank you gentlemen for making my stay so far good.

Let's hope with 6 days into the holiday, the remaining 8 days will get better, especially my room being cleaned more frequently (Toilet paper and New Towels).

We all expect to be able to eat and have a clean room and so far the standards are not as expected.
