With two pools, a lively entertainment scene and a close-to-town setting, the family-run Albatros Apartments fire on all cylinders. The beach is within reach, too - it'll take about 15 minutes to walk there.
This place is in a really handy spot if you like to get out and about on holiday. It’s about a 15-minute walk from the centre of Marmaris, and the beach is roughly the same distance. Better still, if you don’t fancy the walk there’s a local bus that’ll get you there in around five minutes. Closer to the hotel, you’ll find a good choice of shops and restaurants.
The apartments themselves are divided between two blocks - each with a pool. At the main pool, suntrap terraces border the water, plus there's a splash pool for younger guests. Just a few steps away across the road, you’ll find the second, smaller pool, surrounded by orange trees and trailing vines, where the vibe is a lot quieter.
When it comes to food and drink, you’ve got a restaurant-come-bar by the main pool. It’s decked out with wicker chairs and serves drinks, snacks and meals all day long. For breakfast, expect all the usuals like cereals, pastries and fresh fruit. Lunch and dinner bring local specialities, as well as more familiar dishes like Sunday roasts. In the evenings, this place is the focus of the entertainment, too – think quizzes, karaoke and a weekly Turkish night.
As for the apartments, each one comes with one or two bedrooms. They’re all kitted out with understated colours, simple furniture and neat kitchenettes. Balconies, hairdryers and TVs are included, too.
Go to the pool restaurant bar for cocktails, hot and cold drinks, snacks, ice-cream and all day meals. Expect Continental-style breakfasts, local specialities for lunch and dinner - they even do a roast dinner on Sundays. Turkish night has over 30 cold mezze dishes and barbecue food, this is held at the restaurant with entertainment.
These simply furnished apartments make a good holiday base. They can sleep up to four with a twin bedroom and two sofa beds in the lounge. To make life easy, there's a daily maid service with towels and linen change twice a week. There's a kitchenette for making snacks, a satellite TV with some English channels and a balcony or terrace for a bit of outside space.
These apartments come with all your basic holiday needs, including a kitchenette with a kettle and two electric rings for making snacks. There's air-con in the bedrooms at a charge, plus TV with limited English channels. To make it more of a break, there's daily maid service and twice weekly towel and linen changes too.
Just back Monday 28th from Albatros apartments. Me my partner and 7 kids (19, 18, 16, 13, 9, 8 and 4)
These apartments were shocking. I expected basic and this was certainly the most basic ever!
Unfortunately we were caught in 3 days of rain which resulted in no hot water for 3 days which i find a total disgrace due to a wee bit rain it meant no one could shower for 3 days!!
Housekeepers were in rooms daily but dont really know what they done as we had blood from a bleeding finger on floor for 3 days.
Reception staff quite rude and basically did not care.
Bar staff OK as long as you were sitting in there 24/7
No idea what was up with the pool but all my smaller kids had marks up and down their arms and bleeding finger tips. Did not allow them to use pool for last 3 days and it all cleared up so definitely the pool. Heard couple of other parents complaining about this too.
Would never recommend this place to anyoneMore

Another Great Holiday
Our second visit to the Albatros Apartments and again another great holiday. The food is good and staff are very friendly.
Already booked again for next year.
We've always asked for a higher floor as when it is hot, and it way extremely hot, at least there is always a breeze.More
