"This is about our 10th time at Keskin and about 14th time in Marmaris. We just cannot fault the Keskin. A few changes in staff, but they just keep improving overall year on year.
18 of us there this year and nobody has any complaints or bad words about the place. Can sun worship all day, not too noisy, or have a lazy time in the shade, Pool is cleaned as a priority every morning and the staff are meticulous about the cleanliness around the pool and bar area.
Daytime snacks and breakfasts are varied and freshly made to order as is meals in the restaurant in the evening. Rooms are cleaned on a daily basis and the maids are very helpful.
We have just returned and are already planning October break and next year! Missing all the staff and especially the sun already."

"What can I say? Best holiday I have ever had staying at the Keskin apartments!
I have been to Marmaris before, but first time at Keskin, its just a great place, I donât know how anyone could fault it. The staff are so helpful, kind and entertaining especially young Ibo he was great.
Entertainment on a night was good they had a few shows on some nights, the bar staff were great one of which was named Mes who we all got on well with.
Definitely go back to the same place again, there was 12 of us all together that stayed at the Keskin 10 adults and 2 kids the kids loved it too, there was always something for them to do.
I would definitely recommend the Keskin apartments to anyone."

"1st time self catering - what a fabulous holiday, made especially memorable by the staff at the Keskin.
All the bar and restaurant staff couldnât have been more friendly if they tried. The atmosphere around the place was excellent. Rooms were a bit basic but comfortable. Even the maid's were spot on. 13 of us stayed for two weeks, including children and a good time was had by all.
They even had food ordered in especially if it wasnât on the menu! i.e. Lobster, out of this world. Thanks again for a great holiday especially to Chris, Eebo, Tom and Mess, what a great job you do! See you next year!"

"The keskin apartments was the best holiday i have ever had.There was great entertainment during the day and there was always something to do at night if you werent going anywhere else.
Snakeshows, fireshows, break-dancing, nearly everything. I really enjoyed myself and the accomodation was great, and we were only about two-five minutes from the beach, waterpark and many bars and reastraunts.
I look forward to going about the same time next year, and will never forget my great experience! 10/10"

"Travelled with a friend and one child each both aged 4. We had excellent time, found staff friendly and polite. Rooms were large, plenty of storage and room for kids. Mainly ate out but ate at hotel several times and meals and service were excellent. Short bus ride to bazaar and weekly market (great bargains), ten minutes walk to the beach. Very conveniently located for us as it was quiet enough to get kids to sleep but busy enough for all to have a good time.
Definitely recommend air conditioning as we slept with windows open for first week but too noisy from bar, once closed no problem. Sun loungers were a problem, people were putting towels down from 4.30 in the morning. Also they could do with some matting round pool as did become slippery despite excellent efforts from staff to keep it clear. Overall I know we would definitely stay here again. Thanks to everyone who made our holiday what it was.

"The Keskin is away to the dogs. The staff this year were not very friendly at all and they seemed to have there favourites from years gone by. One morning I went out to put our towels out on a lounger and have my breakfast but the member of staff told me they were reserved not good and I told him that. So the next night we were coming in about three in the morning and the towels were already on the loungers needless to say I was not happy as I was getting up in the morning to have a full day lying in the sun but I could not as the other people who sometimes never lay in the sun until after lunch had there towels on the best beds.
On one occasion there was to be a karaoke so 11 of us went for dinner early so as we could be back for nine pm. When we arrived back there were about another twenty in the bar but we were told that it was cancelled. When I enquired further I was told the singer had a sore throat, and then I was told her equipment was broke and then I was told she just never turned up. Strange to say the least as when we went to the bar at least 20 staff were sitting glued to the television that was to be used for the karaoke watching fernebache and so I drew my own conclusions as to why the karaoke was cancelled. Overall the Keskin has dropped its standards we will not be going back to the Keskin but definitely to Marmaris.
One more point I would like to make is that an old man of 76 was forced to climb to the top floor for two weeks when he arrived he asked to be lowered and the hotel asked for 140 pounds. Now Snowy has been going to that hotel for the past 6 years and if thatâs the way they are treating him I am sure you can make your own judgements.

"A brilliant holiday all round, hotel in a very good spot for shops and beach, good entertainment for the kids, food at hotel excellent with quite a few restaurants just a short walk from hotel, all with very good menus and prices. Marmaris is a great place for all ages, plenty to do, talk of the town club had brilliant shows and the prices, which included a free drink and a meal were great value for money. The taxi boats over to Icmeler were fairly cheap but made for a nice trip during the day, Icmeler is also a lovely place but a bit quieter than Marmaris. The Turks are great people, very friendly, well worth a holiday there."
