EPIC HOTEL, MARMARIS
"Clean hotel room, dinners very tasty. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Nice pool. Not much in the way of entertainment, and the water in room was only hot in morning and a couple of hours early evening. Overall good value for money."

Our fabulous holiday
"I booked a quick 5 day stay HB at the Epic Hotel with my eleven year old daughter.
I was a bit worried having booked it very last minute, not having done much research beforehand but WOW! Did I pick well.
This hotel is fabulous! Everything was immaculate and the staff were very friendly and helpful and "Elvis" was a hoot both around the pool during the day and at night.
Katie and her husband who ran the entertainment were just great and everyone made you feel very welcome.
Good choice of food at Breakfast and Dinner in the main restaurant (buffet) and the poolside restaurant for lunch was great and very competitively priced. It was also very well priced for drinks.
If I had any comment to make at all on a downside it would be that there wasn't even juice on offer at dinner time and all drinks had to be purchased. Where at breakfast you could at least have a tea/coffee or some juice with your meal, but it didnt in any way spoil anything!
I would book and go back again!
Hotel has recently been refurbished to a high standard.
Great location although a mile away from the beach, plenty to do all round the hotel and surrounding area.
Try Mad Boys and The Seven Brothers just across the road!
Also a great little excursion shop across the road and they were extremely helpful and not overly priced at all for what you got!

"Spent a week at the Epic from June 16th and had a great time. This is a three star hotel, and by Turkish three star standards it is very good. We have stayed in many hotels in different resorts in Turkey and this by far was the best. It is clean and bright. The food was fine, salads, meats, breads, cereals, and chef on had to cook an excellent omelette if you wished!! Evening meals were excellent, but if you wanted a stake then you had to go else where. I would recommend this hotel and the friendly and very helpful staff, and will be happy to return again!!!"

Great Hotel with Great Staff
"Just returned from a weeks holiday at 'The Epic' - it was great! The rooms are spacious, clean and newly decorated. The food was fine - slightly repetitive but my 15yr old picky son found enough variety and was happy! Typical breakfast was slection of cheeses, cold sliced meats, boiled eggs, tomatoes, beans, potatoes and various sausages - loads of cereals, spreads and freshly baked breads also. Evening meal - different soup every day, spaghetti, pasta sauce, chips, fish, meatballs (flat!) or chicken etc, more breads, fresh fruits and a varied assortment of gateaux (very strangly decorated but tasted fine!)
The pool is very clean, large and with a great waterslide. Theres also a smaller pool for young children and a play area as well. Plenty of sunbeds and parasols and even with people putting towels on there were still loads to choose from (also some on higher area above waterslide which was never full)
Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help - Katie and Selib (husband and wife) do fantastic poolside entertainment and evening enertainment at 'Chindia' - located at front of hotel. 'Elvis' (oh yeah baby!) is a real character who once seen will never be forgotten!
Access to beach is easy - catch number 2 bus from outside hotel which is priced at 1.50TL each way and they run every few minutes. The bus stops right outside 'Tansus' which is a large supermarket which is worth visiting to buy water, fruit, bread etc to take to the beach
Overall we had a fantastic holiday and would be happy to stay at The Epic again."

"We have stayed in the Epic apartments for the past four years and each year it keeps getting better and better. It is in a perfect location, close enough to amenities but quiet enough for families. The hotel food is excellent and the staff are amazing, nothing is a bother to them. Rooms and facilities are always cleaned to a high standard. This year the hotel has been newly refurbished, the pictures of it look amazing, we cant wait to return. In our group there are four adults and two children, the age range is from 8 - late sixties and the hotel offers something to keep all of us happy. I would certainly recomment this hotel to anyone."

Wouldn't go anywhere else!
"Been going to epic since 2008 and would never go anywhere else. the staff can't do anymore for you, very friendly and make you feel welcome rom the moment you get there to the moment you leave. The food is absolutely gorgeous, had a friend that stayed at another hotel and said the epic had the best food in marmaris!Good fun round the pool, lots of games everyday, including bingo. Prices very reasonable and in a very good area. Booked up to go this year, Can't wait! "

"I recently stayed at the Epic Hotel in marmaris for a week with some friends and it was lovely. It's the first time ive been to the epic hotel and also marmaris and it was better than most 4 and 5 star hotels i have previously stayed in.
The staff were lovely and always made you feel welcome as well as being very polite. The recently refurbished hotel was amazing and finished to a very high standard and exceeded my expectations after seeing the pictures on the facebook page.
The food was excellent, as well as the entertainement, the staff once again, the room was lovely and clean etc.
Overall - I wish all hotels were like this one! Good all round! :)"
