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.

Nice hotel

Nice hotel, nice food, lovely views as the hotel is quite high up but the one thing I realised was the reception need more English speaking staff as this was the only downside. Overall nice hotel. As for the people that write bad reviews I think they are expecting a hotel with Hilton standards, remember you payed for a cheap hotel in TURKEY. More

Excellent hotel for family holiday...!

Our family of 6 returned home from a 11-night break yesterday and really enjoyed this hotel. Our rooms (1114 and 1116) on the first floor were spacious and clean, the hotel is large and well maintained and the staff are polite and helpful. We had amazing views from our room and the location of the hotel is stunning with beautiful sea and mountain views. It was a treat taking in the views from the glass elevator every morning. Our room was cleaned and restocked daily, we made sure we put the sign on the door requesting this. I was concerned at the negative reviews of some of the rooms so emailed the hotel in advance to ask for nice rooms and booked in the main hotel, I received courteous replies from Aylin who looked after us during our stay. There was an error on our booking and again Aylin dealt with this with respect and courtesy. One of the best things about the hotel is the food, which was the best we have enjoyed at a hotel in Turkey (this being our fourth resort hotel in the last 4 years). There was always plenty of choice including fresh made pide (Turkish pizza), gozleme (stuffed flatbreads) and freshly made stir fry daily. There were also specials such as chicken doner, roast lamb, turkey, beef burritos and sushi to name a few. Desserts were also very good especially the bakclava and the kids enjoyed the ice cream daily. One of the only negatives we experienced was the poor wifi which was weak and logged you off constantly but was still ok to check messages etc. We did not take part in the activities of the animation team apart from archery which was hit and miss, when Onur ran the activity it was good, when another member of staff did it he wasted too much time taking turns etc. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and we would happily stay there again, this was one of the best value holidays we have ever been on. TIPS: - Book excursions in Marmaris, we booked the Black Pearl boat tour for £32 for all 6 of us (directly at the boat) including food and drink and the Dalyan/Turtle Beach tour for £55 for all 6 at a tourist agency, plus horse safari for £8 each at the same place - Exchange money at Marmaris for the best rate - We used Seagull Transfers for a private minivan transfer to the airport and back in a 7 seater for £80 both ways, they were excellent offering drinks and very friendly service thought the wifi we paid for didn't work on the way backMore

The hotel is very big and has everything. You can swimm with dolphins, to take part in different games organised by the animation team or to rest on the sea side and see turtles if you are lucky. The complex is not located in the central part of Marmaris and is very quiet. Last but not least the food is so delicious...More


1st Family Trip to Turkey-fantastic!!

1st family trip to Turkey-fantastic! Cannot believe what amazing value for money this holiday was, how beautiful the area, and how friendly on the whole the Turkish people were! The Hotel was clean & spotlessly tidy throughout the stay (11 nights, Easter ) The rooms were spacious and comfortable, clean and tidy with a great sea view The food hall was huge with plenty of food which did get a little boring, however, if you mixed it up with a few nights out at the Al a carte restaurants and eating out (cheap) more than sufficient. Pool, beach and jetty areas great! Local free drinks ok, if you are concerned take duty free spirits and just get your mixers! Entertainment team and most of staff great! Remember the staff just want to be treated properly-unfortunately witnessed too many guests who were either rude or wanted the "moon on a stick" Overall fantastic, kids loved it and would recommend this to any family who want a clean, safe and value for money holiday! thank you Turkey! Expect the Hilton? then pay for the Hilton!More

Amazing location, brilliant holiday!

Agree with all my fellow travellers - not a 5 star in the traditional 'British' sense of 5 star - but the room was clean (when it was cleaned - cleaner tended to get to our room far too late in the day which meant were returning to the room to shower and found room still untouched) however despite this, it was well positioned in the main building which meant that everything was just a short step away. The restaurant food was very good - plenty of choice even for the most discerning of palates (6 and 3 year olds) and a vegetarian. Hot food was hot and cold food cold. The weather was very good however as the trip was at the beginning of threading hadn't had a chance to heat the pool yet - but pool area was clean and fully equipped with beds, cushions and umbrellas. Would have been nice to have free ice creams but certainly not a deal breaker. The entertainment team were amazing though. Very hardworking and not pushy. They clearly have a good time and enjoy socialising with all the guests, young and old. A couple of gripes - reception staff not particularly helpful or friendly and not enough staff serving in the bars as teas and coffees were served by the same people so queues were frequent. Housekeeping could start earlier. Other than that. Brilliant holiday. Would recommend!!,More
