lovely hotel with perfect views

"we stayed at this hotel for a week the first week in may.

we found the staff to be very helpful,friendly and extremely hard working.

the room we had was a family room which was spotlessly clean and large.there were 2 single beds,tv,fridge,wardrobe and drawers in the main room and then a large seperate double bedroom.there was a bathroom which had a toilet,sink,bath and shower.we found that this room could have been bigger but it still done the job.

the views from the balcony were amazing.they overlooked the beach and sea and you could see the boats and cruise ships coming in which looked spectacular.

my daughter has a wheelchair and has autism and we found the hotel great for her.there are lifts to every floor and ramps around the hotel(though they are a little steep).

we were not that impressed by the food on the first day but the choices did seem to get better.there was always something to eat for us.there is a huge salad bar and fresh bread.there were a mixture of different main meals to chose from.some nights there were pizza,chicken,chips,mash,diced potatoes,rice,meat in sauces etc.

breakfasts were pancakes,cereal,toast,eggs,made to order omelettes,meats etc.

my daughter did struggle on a few nights but the manager and chef were more than happy to cook her something if she didn't like anything available.

overall,all the staff,including managers,were trying to please.they were often asking if all was ok with the hotel.

we found that the hotel catered for all nationalities with the main being german and british.

obviously at this time of the year the hotel was quieter and there were always sunbeds free,whether that be by the pool or on its private beach which is only a few steps away from the pool.i can imagine that this would be a different case during peak times(school holidays etc).

we would 100% return to this hotel.

Having stayed at the Tropical last...

"Having stayed at the Tropical last year we had such a fantastic time that we booked again this year. We found the hotel spotlessly clean and the staff so friendly. The waiters were all amazing and went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The food was wonderful and the views from your room were breathtaking.

Two weeks was not enough and we are considering going for 3 or 4 weeks next year.

It was sad saying goodbye to all the staff as they seemed genuinley upset as we were.

I recommend this hotel as it is situated away from the hustle and bustle of Marmaris.

Have just spent one week in the hotel...

"Have just spent one week in the hotel Tropikal Marmaris, it is right on the beach front so not far to wander for that much needed sea breeze.

The hotel food was excellent, the staff friendly and the location right at the end of the promonade, away from the noise and hustle, yet near enough to walk along to the many bars and restaurants etc. The towls were changed every day, bedding changed once in our week stay. We had a fantastic sea view, rooms were run of the mill, nothing too exiting the rooms could of done with a lick of paint and maybe some matching curtains - bedding. (but hey much time do you spend in there)

It has been some 5 years since i was in Marmaris, and the prices have shot up, no more cheap goods (still cheapish, but not any where near as good as it used to be)

The Turks remain the same, they hassle you none stop, wanting you to buy anything from meals to bags to gold!! It is impossible to just go and have a look at any thing in any shop as they follow you around pushing unwanted items at you every second you are in there, what a nightmare!! and for this reason i will not go back, i like to relax on holiday, and an enjoyable walk along the prom turns into a fight every time you say "No thank you, i have already had breakfast, lunch dinner or what ever"

If you are wanting ciggs do not buy them in the resort they cost on average around £20 - £23 per 200. Wait till you get to the airport where you can buy any make for arounf £16.00

Lying on the beach looking at the mountains which surround the bay is a wonderful experience, but oh the people, they are a nightmare!!

We spoke with an elderly turkish couple who informed us that English girls were easy picking for the young turkish men, are were all considered to be cheap, as they were only too keen to go with these men, so if any young English girls are reading this GET WISE.

I think i will stick with Florida, where we are guaranteed, friendly people, good prices, great food, plenty to do etc etc.

Thanks to Travel Republic for all their help everything was spot on from that angle.

AS good as ever

"My wife and I had a two week holiday at the Tropical for the 4th time this year and w e enjoyed it as much as ever.

We love the wonderful view from our room and over looking the pool.

The staff are just as friendly as ever ,the place is clean,the food is good and it is in a good location but I must say that the Hotel needs a make over.

The air conditioning is worn out and cannot cope with the heat,at full on all night the room is still an oven,it needs replacing.

The bathroom is very old fashioned the bath is discoloured and needs to be replaced with a modern shower unit.

The wash basin should be replaced with a smaller modern basin and taps,apart from that ,it's a nice place.

I was glad to see there is now a new air port at Dalaman which is easy to enter with lots of space and more exray machines.

A word of warning!!! Beware the horrendous prices for food or drink ( £3 for a cup of hot water with a tea bag) (£8 for a pint of beer) (£2 for a small water) you have been warned.

Not a 4 star Hotel

"first impressions are important and ours was not a good one. The hotel decor is very drab with carpetng everywhere, although must admit it was very well cleaned and kept tidy. Rooms had a mini bar with prices the same as the other hotel bars....which means a bit expensive. Advise drinking out from the hotel. Room Towels were changed daily but oddly there was never a top sheet for the bed??? only bottom sheet and a cover - mattress was not the best either.

We stayed 2 weeks half board and ended up eating out as the menu was very unimaginative - fresh fruit was always the same...melon or watermelon?? sometimes plums. No hot breakfast to speak of although there is a chef who cooks up omlettes. Food Hygiene is questionable as a number of guests we spoke to along with ourselves suffered from a dodgy stomach. It may have been something else causing the upsets but we all agreed it must have been the food...

Hotel location was fine - on outskirts of marmaris so it was peaceful

with all amenities only a short walk away. Or use the Dolmus service which is easy and cheap to get around on.

the Hotel pool is probably its best feature - equal depth all over 1.5 metres with the cleanest water we have swum in - a small childrens pool is also attached with mini waterfalls. There is a beach front for the hotel which is fine and the sea is warm..All sunlounger mattresses carry a 2Lira charge.

Entertainment is of the many travelling show variety - you will see the same performers in ever bar at some point during the week - male or female belly dancer, folk group,michael jackson impersonator etc...

Waiters are good fun and friendly - try their best to please.....

All in all we think the hotel is a 3 Star quality with 5 star prices

Finally for anyone using First Choice flying from Edinburgh - then be

prepared to fly 4 hours on Turkish charter flight with no entertainment...

Tropical Heaven

"We stayed last week 7-14th Sept 2007 and found it an exceptional hotel offering a great experience all round. Could not fault anything really from friendly staff to great food, particularly the salad buffet before main meal, the wonderful garden, the lovely pool and the location right by the beach, and the rooms were very nice and clean."

"I have just returned from my holiday in Marmaris at the Tropical Hotel.We couldn't have picked a nicer place to spend 2 weeks relaxing. The views from the bedrooms were one of the most beautiful and breathtaking I have ever seen. The staff could not be more friendly and the hotel gounds were fantastic. You stepped out of the hotel directly on to the beach which was amazing. Myself and my sister are already making preparations to return next summer and I am hoping to go back for a week before that also. There is a great pub across the road called the Magic Garden and the staff there made our holiday so much fun. They were adorable."

Fantastic location

"This hotel has a fantastic location and views. Very clean rooms. We found the food basic and repetitive, more fitting of a 3 star hotel. Waiters lovely. Think the hotel is owned by Russians and you are not allowed to buy food or drink elsewhere and bring it in, something we have encountered elsewhere in Turkey. If you are caught they will bill your room for the item!! However, a little tip is to leave the offending packaging by the lift so they don't know which room it came from. We are on holiday after all! Would not go back to hotel. Very little evening life in hotel, but plenty in area."

A great holiday

"I spent a week at the Tropical Hotel, when I first saw the hotel I thought it looked a bit shabby and it is very dated but the actual hotel grounds are fab.

The sea view from the balcony is amazing and the pool is great fun !

The rooms are pretty basic and the bathroom wasn't particularly nice, the ceiling had massive gaps and you could see pipes and wires hanging through !

We went halfboard and although the food wasn't very exciting it was tasty and its worthwhile going halfboard to experience the Turkish cusine as the surrounding restaurants consists mainly of tourist meals ie. pies, pasta, pizza.

The hotel staff were very friendly and have a good sense of humour.

There are loads of day trips on offer and we found it much cheaper to book excursions from the local travel agents in the town, they were just as reliable and it worked out half the price compared to booking it with the reps !

I would deffinately reccomend the day trip to Dalyan, although I was slightly disappointed at the mud baths its still worth going in them !

Overall the hotel was a good price and did look like it had the nicest swimming pool around the area ! There are lots of things to do in Marmaris and it was a nice relaxing holiday.
