"The hotel is absolutely amazing, we traveled as a family and some friends, for the family experience. It was the holiday to remember. The entertainment was my personal highlight, always playing funny songs and encouraging people to join in the dances. Each night the entertainment team would put on a fantastic show, like talent shows and plays including Grease. it really made you laugh! The food was incredible also, with a wide variation for everyone. the food can be eaten in or outside, outside was great as all food was being made there too. It was amazing as you could witness how the food was prepared. There is a beach and lovely local bars we went close by which were amazing, as on the beaches we could go on get-skis which were great! i would really recommend this to any family or anyone as there is an arcade for children, tennis courts/basketball is well, and the drinks are amazing for you adults! definite 10!"

"I went on a boat trip with the misses som1 dropped coke all over her couldn't even say sorry, then a little boy from the same family said he don't like BLACKS!! And then the little sister called me a monkey face, I'm tellin you if they wasn't young kids I would have gave them a hiding, and check this the said to me oh don't take it personally....... Have a guess they were Dutch , don't go go here waste of money foods crap staff are rude, no hot water in our room revelry single oh tell a lie 1 day we got hot water, what people don't no is, they use bloody solar panels so with the amount of people stayin there you have get up up at say 5/6am of the water goes cold, TRUSTED ME DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY, UNLESS YOU HAVE MONEY TO THROW AWAY"

Hotel and housekeeping very good, pool area excellent but food and entertainment disappointing
"Housekeeping excellent as were the pool areas sunbeds and parasols always available. The room was very clean and spacious with plenty of storage. The food was very disappointing and uninspiring as was the entertainment."

Lovely relaxed holiday!
"Just returned from 7 days at the Green Nature with 4 of us (2 couples) in our party being between 21 and 25. Have to admit we were a little dubious about the stay from reading some of the previous reviews but we found our stay to be absolutely fine! I wouldn't rate the hotel as 5* personally however what you would class as english 5* is very different in foreign terms so you should bare that in mind. We arrived at 6am in the morning to a fairly grumpy receptionist but the bell boy was nice enough and took us to our room in the far Anex building which is apparently a little bit worse than the main building but we couldn't fault it! The only problem with the room was we'd obviously booked two double rooms and our friends were given two single beds which they had to put together and the shower was always blocked but the maids changed our linen and towels everyday and restocked two bottles of water in the fridge and the air con is an actual blessing! I would definitely try and recommend getting in the furthest back building, although our view consisted of a back road and the hotels in front of us, we had a peaceful night sleep every night and weren't disturbed throughout the day which is something most people complain about. The entertainment was pretty poor but there's a great selection of bars just down the street and there's also a bar provided in the hotel which offers cheap waterpipes with really nice views and cheap enough beer as well as all the football for the lads. From what we could see there were things going on all day around the pool and looked like stuff for kids but we opted to stay by the quieter pool during the day away from the slides (which are no good for adults by the way ha!) The food was decent and there's a great choice for everyone, the only thing to complain about it that breakfast is pretty poor and you have to be down there at around 9am to get anything decent so we just avoided the whole thing but lunch and dinner were fine but again, with dinner make sure you're there early or you'll miss a table opportunity (pretty annoying!). The hotel itself is really clean and you'll always see a member of staff cleaning something or other however you will find there's plenty of wasps but they're usually around drinks that have been spilt and the guests are too lazy to wipe their mess and leave it until someone can come and clean it (bare in mind there's usually only 1 or 2 members of staff on any one bar). The weather was amazing and we took advantage of the 'private beach' offered by the hotel however it's not private, it's just a beach that the hotel endorses so you share it with another hotel just down the road, but there's a bar and cafe there (some people were stingy and complained that you have to pay and they took food from the hotel with them) which offers cheap beer and food as well as shops for a newspaper and cheap ice lollies. We had a go of the watersports offered (fantastic range!), our friends had a go on the fly fish for 40 lira each and we had a go on the jet ski for 25 minutes for 80 lira (after some good banter and bartering with the guy) and we got a boat ride out of it, winner! I'd recommend avoiding bar street, we had a look during the day and it was a lovely walk around the marina and it's cheap enough if you want to drink beer but we fancied cocktails and a nice meal being our last night. We got ripped off on the meal and the cocktails were rather expensive so I'd recommend staying around the bars that are within 5 - 20 minute walk around the hotel complex or you can hop on the dolmous (bus) for 2 lira. The hotel is great providing you're not overly fussy and expecting full blown luxury and to be waited on hand and foot which judging by some reviews people are. Definitely do the turkish bath they recommend in the hotel spa on the first day, the best 90 minutes ever, you get two massages, sauna and a facial for Â£35 but it's worth every penny and it's clean and not full of people sharing the same sweat and also recommend finding Actionman just round the corner to do the Jeep Safari excursion and our friends did the Lazy day all inclusive boat excursion!

Great family holiday ignore bad reviews
"We have just come back from green nature, it was our second visit we stayed there as a couple in 2010. We have taken our 18 month old as we enjoyed it so much the first time round and felt it was a great place for families. The staff were friendly and helpful, their is a kids club and although our son is too young to fully appreciate the entertainment they always included him which was nice. The hotel is clean and their is plenty of food to choose from even for a fussy one year old. I have recommend this holiday to all my friends and family."

what a flop
"There is no way this hotel is 5,* It is at best 3* on a good day, the only good point about this place apart from leaving is the cleanliness, it is clean!. The food is cold, its the same crap day in day out, the staff are unhelpful, ignorant, and arrogant. To sum up you could not pay me to go back there. "

great holiday top hotel
"Just back from the green nature with my wife and 14 year old son. We had a great holiday hotel is stunning, staff are really friendly. If you are polite to them they will be pleasent back to you. There is lots to do in the hotel. My Wife had a turkish bath and this is a must when you arrive. The indoor pool is great when it gets too hot. The food is faboulous we are fussy eaters but found something to eat everyday. There is a pay cafe on the 2nd floor this is fab breakfasts are good and the pizzas and cocktails topclass. we will be back to the green nature. Marmaris is a lovely town aswell. Your holiday is what you make of it but what i would say is try turkey for yourself dont go with what other people say especially bad stories."
