Ozturk is Awesome!
"I stayed in Ozturk Apartments for two weeks last June after visiting in 2008. I went with my partner (20)and met a number of people. The Ozturk offers the best service and many of their customers return because it is so good. The apartments at first seem very basic but are very clean and maids visit every day. A few times we were up late and just said we didnt want it cleaned and they gave us fresh towels. The staff hold Turkish nights every Thursday night which are a must! This includes a bbq dinner, belly dancers, folk dancers and break dancers. Other nights entertatinment is provided by Eddie and his bar staff! The staff are extremely friendly and provide a fun atmosphere around the pool but don't bother those who just want to relax. But who doesn't want to have a laugh and fun on holiday?! The food is also good even for fussy eaters like myself. The apartments are situated close to Marmaris beach and a huge supermarket named the Tansas which is useful for self-caterers. Bar street is a short walk away with a number of clubs for a wild night. On the other side of the strip there is a number of restaurants and bars. You can also travel to Icemeler which has a nice beach by Dolmus which costs around Â£1.50. The Boat Trips are a must! They involve an all day boat trip with BBQ, swim stops and visit to another small island with beach and shops. They cost around Â£15 for the whole day. Drinks are provided but are cheap coke and sprite. But what do you expect for that price! Other excursions such as water safari's and turkish baths are available. But I would ask the staff at Ozturk to recommend which 1 to choose! A holiday in Marmaris, especially at Ozturk is a must! It can guarantee sun, cheap prices and FUN!!! ... I want an Efes now..."

"Well its been a while since i wrote a review so here it goes. I have been visting marmaris for 20 years. We also visited these apartments in May 2002, and standards have in no way dropped. Other bad reviews about this accommodation are, in my eyes, unjust and wrong. Mainly people who have to nitpick and always complain when they get back, rather than trying to have the problem sorted there and then. Before i start this review is my own opinion and is in no way influenced by any members of staff at the Ozturk. We were going to be residing in room 203 which overlooks the garden. The Room. First impressions were immaculately clean and spacious. Sadly no microwave, toaster or oven which can make life incredibly difficult on a self catering holiday. However there were 2 rings and ample pans and crockery plus the all important electric kettle. There were 2 single beds pushed together in the bedroom, one small wardrobe but sadly a huge lack of drawers resulting in us living out of our suitcases. This wasnt the be all and end all though. We did have a big problem with ants on the balcony. Within 3 minutes of notifying reception, spray was put on them and they were gone. The maid came in every day to empty the toilet bin (dirty bin), made the beds and cleaned. She works very hard and her effort largely goes un-noticed. You are given 2 rolls of toilet paper when you arrive, additional ones can be purchased from reception at a cost of 0.50 kurus (around 21.5p at the time of writing this review) Its pretty good quality too. At the bar by the beautiful pool they hold regular evening entertainment ranging from karaoke and breakdancing to turkish nights with a BBQ (at an additional cost for BBQ) A beer is around 4TL and food isnt too badly priced at all. You will find Mehmet and Eddie running the bar, both of which will do their utmost to ensure your stay is an enjoyable one. The location isnt the best, its right near the Dolmus and taxi station and is about a 10min walk to the Bazaar and harbour. Very quiet area but sadly with no disco bars in close proximity hence why the bar has entertainment. The big Tansas is around a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel but there is a small shop a mere 50 metres away if that selling the essentials. All the staff work very long hours but never complain and always have a smile for you. Plus they speak fantastic english, especially Mehmet and Eddie. Nothing is too much trouble. These apartments simply do not get the credit they rightly deserve, they are clean, comfortable and have a great atmosphere which makes any holiday perfect. You can also keep your room on for Â£10 which secures it until 10pm on the day of departure. If its so good why did i give it 9/10? Well simply because it lacked an oven/grill, toaster and microwave and had limited drawer space. The closer to the bar your room is though, the louder it will be. Personally, id hate to be stuck down there as even from the opposite end of the apartments, we could hear the music from the bar quite clearly. I'll close now, have a wonderful time!"

Dont panic- its ok!!
"No need to panic if you've booked this hotel but then went on to read some of the negative reviews. The Ozturk apartments are fine, basic but clean and tidy and the staff are very helpful, i never found any member of staff to be grumpy even when working a 12+ hour shift. After a horrific hotel nightmare in Kos i was worried i'd booked another flea pit but to my surprise the Ozturk was a rather pleasant stay, it could do with a lick of paint (the pink is a touch off putting to some)and the self catering facilities are very basic but myself and my friend (both mid twenties)ate out every day/night anyway and so only really used the fridge. A word to the ladies, put your makeup in the fridge, its too hot to leave it lying in room temperature!!!!!! Yes the hotel is small and the pool isnt exactly overly spacious but its more than fit for purpose and was cleaned every night. People of all ages were staying here so i wouldnt say it was just for young people, it depends on what you like really. If you want five star luxury then obviously you'll be disappointed if you book here but if your looking for a relatively cheap, clean, tidy and friendly hotel the Ozturk will tick all those boxes. "
