This hotel is one of the best I have ever stayed in it is the perfect location with the most wonderful staff it recharged my batteries in the most spectacular way. The Breakfasts were great the food was good and nothing was to much bother for the staff who were all very friendly and a pleasure to be with.

Room tip: All the rooms are great!

Many grand hotels are found on the outskirts of Bodrum, but none can boast the majestic towering over the city as this charming boutique hotel.
Minutes away from the center of town, from the port, the great street flanking the shipyard, full of popular restaurants.
The town of Bodrum is one big resort, with boat trips in which you see beautiful sights and swim in crystal clear waters, even a hot spring, with streets and streets full of unbelievably cheap shopping, from tee shirts, to shoes, bags etc. Never-ending streets lined with restaurants, everpresent taxis to facilitate your moving around, and museums of sponges, marine archaeology, everything that has to do with the sea.
Unfortunately, you will not find local books on the subject, so buy your own from your country.
The Marmara, our Boutique hotel, was all you would need in a resort hotel. Far from the madding crowd, (yet so close!) it is calm,gentle, beautiful architecture, bordering on the very modern, in the reception area and moving to the rustic in a beautiful harmonious transition.
The hotel is a museum of artworks from the old wooden tracery to the entrance facade to the corridors, stairs and restaurants. Huge photographs of local people remind you of where you are, while carved wooden slabs used for printing textiles make you slow down your pace on your way to the room.
The rooms are Very comfortable. Clean, well equipped bathrooms. Great service.
Small balconies allow you to sit and ponder on the view while hearing the rooster crow.
The atmosphere at night is unbelievable.
Breakfast is on the terrace above the pool, an even greater view on the bay. It is a generous breakfast with different kinds of local honey, jams, and olives of course.
Coffee is not up to European standard, but is ok.
The staff are wonderfully serviable, yes even getting you hot milk.
The tile-like decorations on the tables are beautiful, but watch your head on those hanging lights.
A woven straw ceiling allows the light in but protects you from the sun.
A restaurant below caters for the pool.
Beside the pools a staircase leading to the massage room and a great gym.
The masseuse is excellent. Check if they have a discount on massage or on laundry. They did when I was there.but you have to ask.
Beside the breakfast place, after two huge blooming trees, one can relax in a hammock, standing solitary beside a most impressive ancient tower made of gigantic boulders.
Was this the legendary tower of Halicarnassus, one of the wonders of the ancient world? The tower erected by the loving wife of Mausolus to honor him after his death (hence the word, mausoleum). No one among the staff could answer my question.
It is hard to get information in this area, so educate yourself before you arrive.
The airport to Bodrum is quite a way away. Taxis arrive within minutes of asking.
Make sure you buy a chip for your phone at the airport in istanbul, en route to Bodrum or other airports. It works everywhere.
Few taxi drivers speak English, but the Turkish populace is starting to learn it.
Make sure you get the details of where you are going explained by the concierge.
I dream of returning to the Marmara, a true dream place, worth every penny.

Room tip: Ask for a room with a view!!

Perched above the stunning town of Bodrum, the Marmara was a gem of a find for our 'short 4 night break'. A downhill 15 minute walk from the Center the hotel has stunning views, first class service, great rooms will all you could require from a quality hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and very professional with your interest at heart at all times. The pool was welcoming and never any issue finding somewhere to lay in the sun. The final day we visited their 'Beach Club'. They organised the luxurious private transfer and we spent a perfect day - I would strongly recommend a visit for the day if you have a chance. Would definitely visit again as it really is a superb hotel that screams quality.

Room tip: Amazing views, great service, excellent beach club,

A grey hotel on the hills overlooking Bodrum. Staff were helpful from the moment you arrive in the car park. Breakfast was a full spread of lovely fresh Turkish produce in a setting overlooking Bodrum Bay. In the evening if you want to relax we recommend watching the sunset from the Jacuzzi followed by a drink beside the open log fire, if you can persuade the house cat to move!!!

Totally recommended - we will go again
