From the accommodation point of view, there are plenty of possibilities in Marmaris from cheap to more expensive hotel, but all very convenient.
We have chosen a hotel located at 10min walking from the beach managed by a family of Turkish entrepreneurs that lived for a long time in Sweden and everything was just perfect.
They even waited for us late in the night when we arrived to Marmaris and offered us drinks for free.
The apartment, with a bedroom and a living with a kitchen corner, was only USD 18-.
There was no air conditioning but we really didn't feel the need.
In any case, even if you don't have a reservation and arrive to Marmaris, it's easy to find a good place to stay, as Marmaris offers abundant accommodation ranging from small pensions (guest houses) to luxurious 5 star hotels.
Here is my daughter Kayley and my neice Fiona having a great laugh in the club Turquise pool. Kayley is holding her nose because bubbles have been spotted in the water hahahahaha
Great pool but let down through overcrowding
I spent some nights there. It cost 12 Lýra wýth Isýc card, but they don't really ask to see ýt. They are very friendly, for example Ý like covering at night but there wasn't any, so the attendant gave me a blanket. They created a female only dorm because Ý asked for it--except something went wrong and Ý woke up next to some hairy legs that did not belong to a woman. Ý had some problems meeting up with a friend in Marmaris and they were very helpful directing that person towards me even when Ý didn't stay there yet--not even at her expensive hotel people had forwarded my messages to her so Ý find this noteworthy.
I dıdn't book ın advance, and there was space.
They have a nice roof terrace with ocean or mountain view where you can get fresh OJ for 1 Lira and breakfast for 4, and they don't mind if you bring your own, even give you plates and cutlery and the guy at the bar insisted to cut my own tomatoes for me.
The rooms have only beds--mine had 4-- and 5 hooks--the lockers ( free) are small and only good for valuables, cameras etc. You can deposit your bag at the balcony behind the reception. Anything that can melt will do so becaue it will be in the sun. There are 3 floors of dorms and rooms and bathrooms. Hot water, clean. Doubles cost 30 Lira and they don't let them as --singles. The rooms are above the roof of the bazaar--a být sticky but not noisy.
I washed my handwashables to have them in the mornýng-- luckily I had a place by the window--otherwise there wouldn't be any place in the room to dry ýt. There wasn't any plug ýn the room and ýt's hard to pack when the party animals are all still sleepýng around you ýn the morning.
This guesthouse sounded like my absolute nightmare when I had finally found it: There is a pool disco right next to ýt. The owner ensured me that it would be quýet after 11 p.m., and oh wonder--it was quiet indeed. Even though it's now high season and this place ýs the cheapest for singles, there were vacancýes--I didn't book ýn advance.
There were some families staying at this place, so this gave me a safe feeling.
I had a single room wýth outside bathroom and brought it down to a little less than thirty Lýra. The owner takes only Turkish Lira. You get no receipt or anything and you have to be a little descrete about your dýscount to the other guests--if anyone runs to him and says you got one why not them you won't get one agaýn--even though when I peeped into hýs accounting book they had all got one.
The owner speaks only Turksish, but he might have English or French-speaking guests around to translate.
The room was clean and it had coat hanger and a table, and a plug, bathroom had hot water.
The best thing is that there is a kitchen with plenty of kitchen ware and several fridges for the guests. You may have to fight for cooking space as there were several families dooing cooking and dishes, plus the odd individual guests. What Ý didn;t like was that when Ý came out of my room one guests jumped away from the fridge a bit too quick and ran to his room, and Ý had heard the sound of a bottle falling back into its place.
Ýt was MY bottle--nobody else had their stuff in this fridge.
The owner leaves you alone whcih Ý like. he doesn't speak any English, but he'll get a guest to translate, Turkish not so well offs are staying there, too.
You are at the public beach, tourist office, internet cafe, not so-expensive-supermarket in 5 minutes or less.
This is the Turquise appartments and my daughter rebecca and my neice fiona doinga little kareoke (sounds like a load of cats in pain) hahahahaha.
This is the club Turquise pool area where we stayed, the appartments where great but the pool area got very busy in the afternoons
This is one of the rooms at the club turquise appartments, and as you can see one of my daughters is a very tired little girl
Here is another room at the Turquise, and this time its my other daughter who is dead to the world hahahahaha.
This is a veiw of the kitchen, and my wifes backside hahahahahaha, big ain't it, The kitchen im talking about hahahahaha.
This is one of the bedrooms at the Turquise appartments, as you can see the rooms are basic but very spacious
The staff at the turquise always seemed to do that little bit extra, this is what they done after they made our beds one morning hehehehehe
This picture shows one of the regular activaties at the turquise. Its the pool dance, supervised by a fantastic childrens club leader called Julie
I stayed on boat in a perfect, clean marina, with the best impressions from the place and the people!
We were here in our honeymoon-trip.We wanted to go to Venice or at least to Crete-island,but this was cheapest we could find,and we had not so much money.(Even that much as today..)
Hotel was quite new(year 1997),and somewhere you could still see something was not ready yet..But otherwice it was o.k.But the rooms were VERY HOT!Maybe they have air-conditioning today.We allmost didn´t sleep at all some nights.And we didn´t like,that they didn´t have double-bed.
We had a little laugh,when travel-agency said,that they will get something special for us because of the honeymoon.That "special" turned out to be a bottle of cheapest wine that was sold in shop nearby,and some flowers from bush next to hotel..We had heard many of our friends has get good wine,basket full of everything sweet,roses on the bed.. and so on..
Unique was trashplace outside the hotel ;) I think it´s gone now,because they were building new hotels all the time.
My husband and I were reluctant at first when we read reviews on this hotel.
We have booked "cheap deals" before and always plan to expect the worst so we are not disappointed.
it's quite charming and as you enter you get an overly warm welcome as you do in all places in Marmaris. The hotel has a bar and eating area and included a traditional Turkish breakfast ! (tea and coffee are also included but beware, the milk is goat's milk).
Off of the eating area is the pool and garden area. The pool was small but if you don't visit during peak season, you have it all to yourselves. The staff will bring drinks to the pool anytime you wish and food/snacks are served all day from 8am until 11pm.
The room was very basic, but we managed to get used to it. (after all, it was just over £150/person for the week including flights and transfer)! The room consisted of a double bed (not very comfortable but we slept), wardrobe, and 2 night tables. A small balcony with chairs were also present. The bathroom was the bigest suprise for 2 reasons.
1) it was a wide open big tiled area with a shower (no shower curtain or bath)
2) alot of the small hotels in the area had solar powered heat for the hot water, so you needed to plan your showers carefully based on the weather. We found this out after our first morning and a very COLD shower!
The room was cleaned everyday and towels/linen replaced every other day.
The owner had signs posted everywhere telling guests they were not allowed to bring food and drink into the hotel at all. (This obviously was because that's how he makes his money).
Our saving grace was the supermarket across the road where we bought bottled water and other little snacks and smuggled them in! (not to be rude, but after all, it's our holiday and we wanted drinks for the room sometimes when we didn't feel like sitting in the bar).
The owner knew alot of people and we booked 2 trips with him which were cheaper than walking on the front.
1) nice view of the mountains and mosque nearby
4)300 metres to the beach
5)150 metres to the main road
6)Thursday market is only 1 road away near the mosque
