Fantastic Hotel, great people, nice view

Posted Aug 17, 2015
Pros: View, upgrade, cleanliness, friendly staff
We would totally stay at the Marmara in Bodrum again and again. We had a fabulous vacation. The staff was really helpful and accomodating, the food was excellent and the view breathtaking. The only little flaws were that visitors and notes were not announced or delivered, and the minibar was not restocked (espacially glasses and cups were missing). But that said every little wish was fullfilled and the friendliness made up for everything.

Beautiful hotel overlooking Bodrum.

Posted Jul 20, 2015
Pros: Lovely airy hotel with plenty of space to be on your own and read and relax or just laze the day away at the pool bar.
Cons: Maybe could have a few more parasols around the pool bar area but that is only a minor thing.
Location: The hotel is set above Bodrum town which is only about 15 minutes walk downhill but I would say you need to take a taxi back.
Had a lovely relaxing holiday. Hotel staff all very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The only downside to my room was that the balcony was fairly small and no room to properly sit out and enjoy the beautiful views but saying that this was only a minor issue. The Marmara Hotel is an excellent Hotel with excellent staff who make you welcome from the minute you arrive.

Magical views and calm luxury

Posted Jul 20, 2015
Situated on a hill above Bodrum port and town with panoramic views. It was a calm and luxurious haven to return to after a day at the beach, shopping or sightseeing. Pool is great and situated on a terrace overlooking Bodrum. Great Breakfast buffet. Front of house staff are fantastic but poolside service is slow and inattentive. Would return again.

Excellent and relaxing hotel

Posted Jul 13, 2015
Pros: The staff were perfect, genuinely friendly and helpful. The location was far enough away from the noise of Bodrum but close enough to taxi in.
Cons: My only gripe was poor wifi in my room, it was good by the pool though
Location: Bodrum town with everything you could want is nearby
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Marmara Bodrum for one week in July. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by an attentive and caring staff who looked after us throughout our stay, making sure every need was filled and question answered. The hotel itself is very beautiful with incredible views overlooking bodrum centre, the water and the castle. It is located higher up on a hill but is a 15 minute walk into town or a short and cheap (£3) taxi back. I recommend a taxi on the way back to the hotel as it is quite a steep hill to walk. The included breakfast is absolutely delicious and varied with eggs to order, lots of fresh fruit, homemade jams, pastrys, salad and excellent Turkish tea and coffee. Plus the view can't be beat, probably the best we saw throughout our trip. My girlfriend is gluten intolerant and the staff were very accommodating, plus the food was naturally very GF so she didn't have any issues. We stayed in a deluxe double ( one step up from the entry) which we we're upgraded to on arrival. All rooms have a beautiful terrace which can overlook a garden or the sea if you book ahead. Rooms Have air conditioning, great shower, robes and all the essentials of a designer hotel. Facilities include a tennis court, squash court, two pools including one semi Olympic size with diving board. As the hotel is not by a beach, every day the hotel provides free shuttles to Flamm beach which plays great chilled out music

Nice hotel with amazing staff

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Really nice hotel with a beautiful view overlooking Bodrum, the marina and the castle. We were very pleased with the amazing staff - especially the receptionists were extremely helpful. We were happy with the food - breakfast was nice, however the food in the restaurant (lunch/dinner) is maybe a bit expensive for what it is. There is a daily shuttle to Flamm beach which is quite convenient. The beach is nice, relaxed atmosphere and really nice and attentive staff. We would definitely come back.

Hotel Okay, Service schlecht

Posted Jul 4, 2015
Pros: Die Lage ist wirklich gut, die Aussicht ist sehr schön, man sieht über ganz Bodrum und das Meer, dies ist wirklich das Beste am Hotel.
Cons: Ja, empfehlen sie den Gästen nicht Zimmer mit Meerblick!
Location: Alles, da man in kurzer Zeit inmitten der Stadt ist.
Wir waren für eine Woche im Marmara und hatten ein Luxury Zimmer mit Meersicht. Das Zimmer war sehr schön und stets sauber. Die Aussicht war auch sehr schön, schlafen konnten wir nicht da auf dieser Seite Hunde in der Nacht ununterbrochen bellten! Die Lage des Hotels ist gut die Aussicht traumhaft. Bis ins Zentrum braucht man aber schon mindestens 20 Minuten zu Fuss, da empfiehlt sich schon das Taxi! Das Hotel Restaurant ist auch sehr gut, jedoch massiv überteuert, zumindest im Vergleich zu den anderen Restaurants in Bodrum, dies würde ich mir gut überlegen. Das Personal ist freundlich, an der Rezeption sehr hilfsbereit und motiviert. Der Rest des Personals (für meinen Geschmack zu jung) ist eher demotiviert oder hat einfach keine Lust die Gäste zu bedienen. Will man am Pool was trinken muss man immer wieder aufstehen und was verlangen gehen, dann dauert es eine Ewigkeit bis man bedient wird. Proaktiv sind die Leute überhaupt nicht, also bleibt es meistens bei einem Drink, ausser man steht wieder auf und geht bestellen. Frühstücksangebot ist eher dem türkischen Tourismus ausgerichtet also ist die Auswahl nicht sehr international, anscheinend kann man aber bestellen, dies wird einem aber kaum gesagt. Beim Frühstück würde ich aufpassen, denn kaum ist der Teller leer wird alles innert Sekunden abgeräumt.

Absolutely beautiful hotel!

Posted Jun 15, 2015
Pros: It's just a really beautifully designed hotel with an authentic touches and an incredible view.
Cons: The hotel is situated on a hill, it's only a 10 min walk to Bodrum but it's down a very steep hill...walking up can be a bit taxing
Location: Visit the old city of Bodrum; Drive around the entire peninsula to see the coast and visit the beach towns. It's about a 2 hour drive to Ephesus.
The Marmara is a beautiful hotel, wonderfully decorated with spectacular views. There is a lot of attention to detail; the public seating areas are lovely and the grounds are well manicured. The view of the city of Bodrum never gets tiring. Staff are friendly and assist whenever possible. There is a little garden on the grounds where the Chef grows his own vegetables. The pool facilities are great (there are two pools, one is an Olympic size pool), although they close too early (i.e. 8pm). The private beach is about 20 KMs away but they offer a shuttle that leaves at various times. The beach area is very nice and picturesque, with an outdoor bar and an outdoor pizza oven. The swimming area is fantastic...we swam in early June and the water was great. I would recommend renting a car to drive around the entire peninsula to visit the many little beach towns (driving is completely fine, not like the craziness of Istanbul).
