Hotel Mares

This one’s a great all-rounder, with fantastic Med views, waterfront restaurants and plenty of bars.

This hotel is blessed with good looks, all the way from the bougainvillea-draped buildings to the mountain backdrop. The Med is mere footsteps away, while both Marmaris and Icmeler are just 5 to 10 minutes’ drive from here.

The sea views aren’t wasted here – the buffet restaurant drinks them in, while the seafood à la carte nudges the waterfront. There’s a great choice of bars, while the pool set-up includes one that comes with slides.

A Perfect Introduction to Turkey

For our first ever visit to Turkey I doubt we could have chosen a better hotel. After an initial disappointment with a room facing the rear bank towards the road, we had to move rooms due to a gaping crack in the shower and ended up on the 4th floor with excellent views to Marmaris. The location of this hotel suited us perfectly with simple walking access to both Marmaris and Icmeler. The scenic beauty of the immediate area is superb. Right from initial checkin we had nothing but praise for the friendly and helpful staff. We are not naturally hotel, and especially “”AI” fans, but the food in particular was very good. We especially enjoyed the variety of salad dishes and desserts. The main course selections were not quite so good and we could see how some British guests may miss, e.g. “proper” bacon and sausages. For us this was no problem and we often just had soup, salad, and dessert (and more dessert !!). We did not go tto the Mehane restaurant as we are not fish lovers but, although we went to both the Pizzeria and Camlik in our first week, we did not bother in the second week. The drinks were a little disappointing though. Although the beer was fine, the wines (especially the white) were not great. We felt that the spirits were, actually, quite poor but we are not big spirit drinkers anyway. We have not come to expect much from hotel evening entertainment and this was not much better although we did like the rock guitarist, but his solos sometimes went on a little too long !! It was good to have rock music at all though as we have never seen an equivalent anywhere else. The visiting “ISDanceBull” dancers were quite good and “Michael Jackson” tried hard. The animation team all spoke to us at some point even though we were not participating in their daytime activities. We only twice stayed by the pool as it was too noisy for us but used the jetty by the dolphins which suited us well, and the sea water was warmer than the pool anyway. We'd definitely recommend this hotel and will remember, especially, the fabulous setting and the friendly antics of Mehmet in the dining room amusing us as much as serving us well. We just wish that Monarch had not spoiled the whole 2 weeks experience by their incompetence in getting us back to Manchester (we eventually got to Birmingham) after the cancelled flight ZB667 of 24th Oct, but that is a whole separate story !!!!!!!More

great hotel no need to go out gettting pestered

we went to this hotel for a birthday celebration for which the hotel provided a lovely cake( free of charge} we had 4th floor rooms which we clean and had fantastic views over the bay and dolphin pools. our fridge and safety box were free and worked fine though we did hear of other rooms where this was not so. the restaurant food was good and there was a good choice for everyone ,.the pizzas were very good as well as the soups and fresh pitta bread. the bars had limited drinks available which didnt bother me but the coffee was very good . we didnt use the hotel pool as we went down to the manmade beach and laid on loungers on the pontoon. the staff were very helpful and were looking forward to the end of a hard season. we also used the massage facilities which were good value for money. if you want to go into marmaris its so easy about 80p bus ride or a taxi was about £7 for 6 of us i would love to go back but earlier in the season as things start to close earlier and the weather is betterMore

Our 3rd visit to this hotel. Our 1st time was 2009 and was excellent. The 2nd time was 2010 and was dreadful so we were a bit apprehensive about going back but we had no reason to worry. We were so well looked after. The food was lovely as usual and the desserts were still amazing. Staff were friendly and welcoming. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The only thing to let us down was the weather, storms, torrential rain and strong winds but it's to be expected from the 3rd week of October onwards.More


Would definitely recommend it!

A lovely hotel in great location! Went for a week and had such a good time! Entertainment team was amazing! Everyone was very helpful and worked so hard to please all the guests ! The food was really nice! Rooms very clean. Waiters really nice ! Especially guy called Ahmet! Always made sure we felt comfortable and were looked after! Sultan bar with friendly staff-always fun. Live music every other evening - the guy was an amazing singer. Dj Alper was a good one too! In general I would even go back to see those guys again! Very good experience!More

Quiet location on the beach

Loved: the beach - very little sand but extremely clean water with lots of fish. it has blue flag too; the pastries and desserts in the main restaurant; the cleaning service of the rooms; the amazing views of the main restaurant and the location of the hotel - quiet but not too far away from the resort ( rent a bike or a scooter - very convenient!); there is free WI FI almost everywhere in the main building. What I disliked: Paid for a sea view room in the main building, but the bay was not visible from the room, only from the balcony and it was not private at all. The room overlooked the swimming pool and the disco, so it was loud until 1 AM. The a-la-cart restaurant - Italian - is a joke, not worth a visit. The drinks - wine and cocktails are not what they should be in a 5 star hotel. The furniture is a bit outdated, but it's ok. On the whole I enjoyed my stay and would come back. The hotel is an affordable mid-range and the management does not strive for more. Not a luxury hotel but excellent value for moneyMore
