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.
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.
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.
How to Get There
Where to start? Brilliant holiday 3rd year running and we were both unsure if it would be as good as it went all inclusive. Amazing no change to the actual hotel. Other than the staff. Unfortunately only few remained from last year which was shame as they seem to bond with clients and become an important part of the holiday. Mainly the staff were ok but the girls working in the bar were always and i say it again always on mobile phones and not cleaning up well. They should not be allowed these unless on a break it does not look good and they were neglecting their duties, not like the staff last year as they were on it. The bar was not as clean as last year the mirrors at the back of the bar were smeary so instead of being on phones at quiet times (clean them!) We spent lots of time on the private jetty which is amazing and made even better by the waiter Ramazan who could not do enough for you. Making our stay a very special one Please keep this very major member of staff, he is a true asset to the Hotel and could maybe teach some of the others how to deal with customers. the food was good but not as much choice as there was in the past years. Was repetitive and lacked variety. Someone needed to overlook the dining area as some guests were touching food and putting it back taking things off desserts but not the whole dessert. Very rude and not good for hygiene and cross contamination. All this said we will be coming again. As we had never before gone so late in the season we did feel a little pushed towards the door as each day sunbeds disappeared and the dining area became cleared and smaller. Could this not have waited until the guests had vacated? thanks for a great holiday
had a fantastic holiday at the grand azur made all the more special by the amazing staff. despite the fact it was very near the end of the season, we were looked after as if it was the beginning or middle. all the bar staff were brilliant as were the entertainment team. room was so comfortable and slept like a log every night. cant wait to return next year.
Grand Azur (5 star what a joke) stayed for 11 nights in October, this hotel is like something out of the film cocoon, food was of the poorest quality I have ever encountered, rooms not cleaned properly, mini bar never re-stocked, no toiletries in room other that a budget hotel hand dispenser stuck to the shower, no waiter service in the main lobby bar or pool bar, cats on tables, on chairs and couches in lobby bar, lifts constantly breaking down so used the stairs for 11 days, any one who wrote good reports about this hotel in October must be mad, check out the terrible reviews and this is the correct description, complained to reception only to be told we are changing to TUI BLUE from next year (who cares when you have wasted 4K this fiasco) the only good points was the service from the beech bar staff and see views. We have been going to Turkey for the last 20 years and this has been the worst experience!!! SAVE YOUR MONEY and go to any Delphin Hotels in ANTALYA, these are proper 5 star Hotels with customer service to match. TUI get a grip and sort this Hotel out, even the locals we spoke to said the Grand Azur had rapidly gone down hill.
