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
Well what can i say, I usually stay at green nature diamond so this was dark and dull compared to that.
Thomas cook told me my holiday was going to be disturbed in India so we thought we would go to Marmaris as we love it but this holiday still cost us £2.500 compared to hotels half the price for two on the same weeks.
The room was dark but clean
Bar area by pool was dirty and waitresses argued and stormed off with each other.
Food was repetitive and limited so being a veggie I had very little choice apart from salad and chips.... pasta wasn't always veggie either so ate out a lot.
Menu at the pool bar for food was just as bad for me so ate out a lot so became a very expensive holiday for me.
drinks were ok.
Room next door had a blazing row which was getting violent called reception 3 times over 40 mins to get them to send someone up to deal as screaming and fearing for girls life, they could hear screams over phine but still took their time, when they did come just took lady away who had a 3 year old with her.
Arguing then started again and finally finished 4 hours later when the girl moved rooms.
No apploligy from hotel.
All in all not a top Thomas cook hotel more like a 3 star
This is not a 5* hotel more like a 3* being nice.
I travel up to 4times throughout the year staying in 5* hotels this has been by far my worst experience ever i would never visit again. From customer service, food, children facilities to daytime activities/entertainment.
If you have children consider somewhere else they DO NOT CATER FOR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN.Even though they state otherwise, especially if you have a young child under the age of 2. No baby facilities available apart from a microwave and baby warmer. No milk available apart from requesting at the bar at that point when you request they give you attitude.
It was a nightmare, i got food poisioning the last couple of nights me and my 1year old son. This was suppose to be a holiday for my mothers 50th birthday that ended up being a holiday from hell.
I had a meeting with f&b manager whilst their and they didnt seem bothered about the situatuon. Im not one to complain but if i can avoid especially families with young ones to think before they travel here i will do just that.
I have requested a refund on my return as i paid for all inclusive only to recieve all my services away from the hotel. Ridiculous and when you do mention any concerns to them the staff have an attitude.
I cried most of the time there, if i could have returned home after the first 2 days i would have but thomas cook had no fligts available. So i had no other option at the time but to stay. Theres so much i could go on about but i think its safe to say these were my main concerns.
I am a manager of a hotel and under no circumstance should me and my family have experienced from a 5* the service we did.
I would not visit this hotel at the same time of year again. We went on the 22/10/18. Within in this time the resort was basically shutting down around us the sun loungers were being reduced everyday from the beach there was no entertainment the lack of variety of spirits available was fewe and far between the only time I was able to have a tia Maria was when we ate in the steak bar and that was what we had to pay for.the hotel was lovely it was such a shame. I was disappointed as it was mine and my partners first holiday together.
This is a nice hotel with a great location close to the sea and a half hour walk along the beach to the town centre.My one and only problem was the cats they were everywhere, I am not a cat person and don't like to be in close proximity to a cat ,and as they were everywhere,near the pool,in the restaurant,in the lobby and on the beach ,I found that spoilt my stay at this hotel.
On the other hand if you are a cat lover then this is the hotel for you,the rooms are a good size with a nice balcony,the food was really good and plentiful,the swimming pool and outdoor area was lovely and the tennis courts are a plus.
All the staff were really nice , specially the staff in the main restaurant.
What a lovely hotel with friendly helpful staff. Great sized rooms with good views,with mini bar which was filled every day at no cost. Lovely food with many different choices every day. Beach and jetty sunbathing area big enough to not feel cramped in. will definitely be visiting again next year. Thank you Grand Azur.
