This contemporary hotel lines up a city-centre location, a private patch of Marmaris Beach, and great pool and dining scenes.
The Blue Bay Platinum is set in the centre of Marmaris, with shops and bars on the doorstep. The harbour and old town are a few minutes’ drive away, and you’ve got a private section of next-door Marmaris Beach.
The hotel’s not long had a full makeover, so everything’s really contemporary – especially the bedrooms, with their blonde-wood furniture, beach-scene wall murals and aqua accents.
The restaurant offers a mixture of Italian and international cuisine, with classic wines and trendy cocktails. You'll also find large screen TVs and occasional entertainment. Book a table in advance as it's popular. The terrace is open, depending on the weather. You can visit one of the à la carte restaurants once as part of your holiday package with an extra surcharge of 9 pounds sterling per person.

Where do I start...
After a great 2 weeks last year we decided to return to bluebay and once again we wasn't disappointed.
The food is always good with such a variety to choose from unless u are a fussy eater! The staff in the restaurant are so friendly and remembered us from last year. Most days a table was saved for us breakfast, lunch and dinner. The rep and guest relations lady were so friendly and helpful. We booked a night at the 'talk of the town' pub through the rep and what a great night we had. It was Â£18 for a chicken dinner, small pudding, a free drink and the entertainment was drag queens!! Omg they were hilarious!
On our last night we went opposite the hotel to the Picadilly bar/restaurant to watch the footie! What a lovely bunch of fellas there that make u feel so welcome.
Our room this year was very small and not cleaned very often which was the only downer about this holiday.
Chris who works around the pool and does the scuba diving is such a lovely bloke. Always up for a bit of banter and if ur lucky he'll show u his tattoos on his bum cheeks lol
Again the people that made our holiday the best was the entertainment lot! Dodo, Lovely Lily, Shawn, Bob, Mustafa, Tuna and the gorgeous QB. They work their butts off and don't get the recognition they deserve. U gotta give QB a bit of stick when it comes to his bingo calling! His Fivety five call is hilarious. Janer at the pool bar is a right sweetie and could of happily taken him home lol More
Excellent last minute holiday no complaints for the price paid
This hotel was amazing, it's just like the photos. The room was very spacious, the beds were very comfortable and the shower was fantastic. There are four different food areas my particular favourite was the buffet bar as they had a wide range of food which will suit everyone. The staff are so welcoming and the hotel's entertainment team were very friendly and made you feel included, they did a great job at entertaining the people who visited my favourites were mustafa, moussa, emre and lily they literally made the holiday. I would highly recommend this hotel I cannot pick any faults with it what so ever. Everything is so new and modern, its immaculate. I will definitely be visiting again.More
The hotel looks lovely and clean offering 3 outdoor pools one is adult only and an indoor pool also a small kid pool with 2 slides they do work hard to keep the pool areas clean the water is freasing but just what you need after baking in the heat .
ROOM the first room we were alicated was a family room one of the rooms had a dubble bed and the other 2 singles then one wardrobe between 4 . This room had not been cleaned very good and had a funny smell but a quick word to guest service and we moved rooms . The second room was lovely I strongly recomend booking this if there are 4 of you as it has 2 bedrooms and a little seating area lounge . Where the TV fridge and tea coffee making things are . On the TV u get 2 English channels but for Â£10 you can upgrade to full sky which was brilliant for my 15 year old son .
If you like eating chicken you are sorted every meal and chips . A few nights we struggled to eat but we are a little fussy the salad choice was very good also the deserts . I can't coment on breakfast as I never went down . There is also a snack bar ope from 11 till 6 so the kids will never be hungry .
The team work really hard and are very friendly always trying to get you involved with the planned activities they do but the night time entertainment sorry it's rubbish . Mini disco for little ones bingo then some kind of show that lasts 40 minutes.
OUT AND ABOUT
We used the little dos bus to go to icmila it costs 3L and it's worth a visit the beach is lovely. You can walk right along the beach front to mamaras harbour it took us 50 minutes but I walk slow there are a few bars along the way . Just out side the hotel there are bars restaurants shops a big supermarket and McDonald's.
As the all inclusive gets a bit much we went to picadily for a meal one night it was worth every penny beautiful recommend a try we had a 3 course meal and a few drinks for 4 people and the bill was about Â£70 for the night .
You can pay in all the shops with leira and English you get better value in English money
the hotel is good for young children and couples not a lot for kids over 10 to do we struggled to keep ours entertained. The blue bay was good for a cheap holiday but I think it's more like 3 star sorry everyone has there own opinion if I can help please feel free to mesage me .
I didn't take a lot of pics this was the vew from our room . More
Best Hotel I've stayed in!
Stayed at the blue bay hotel 9th May-21st.
All the reviews are spot on. Nice chilled relaxing holiday. Everything you need for a pleasant stay. Plenty of sun loungers, parasols. Beach towels available. We spent all of our time by the quiet pool. Nice and peaceful. Plenty of action going on at the other pools. Our room was above the main restaurant, level 1. Massive balcony. Fantastic shower. Hot water no matter what of day! Fresh towels everyday. And bottled water. You will never go hungry at this hotel. There is something for everyone. Everywhere very clean. Regular tests of the pool water. All the staff were terrific, could not fault at all. 30 minute walk to Marmaris town. Didn't seem far as shops all the way down. Don't forget to barter!! Save some weight in your case! Cause you will need it for the authentic Turkish fakes lol. Happy shopping ððð¶ðð
Would go back tomorrow!! Happy holidayâ±ðð£ðâï¸ðð½More
