With four pools, seven restaurants and a private beach, this hotel has everything you need under one roof.
The hotel has a great spot between Marmaris and Icmeler. Its nearest neighbours are a pine forest and a private beach kitted out with sunlounger-filled jetties. Plus, there are shops and bars 5 minutes’ walk away.
There are four pools, each with a different pace, and seven restaurants, including an Italian à la carte. In the evenings, two venues – the amphitheatre and the beach – host live music and shows.
Thomson Kids’ Club is available May to October 2015 and offers 2 hours of activities, 5 or 6 days a week with fully trained staff. And that includes at least 3 evenings. There's at least two on duty at all times. It’s split into sections, with Tots for 3 to 5 year olds, Team for 6 to 8s, and Tribe for 9 to 11s. Best of all, most kids’ clubs activities are completely free. And outside of peak season, there are parent and toddler sessions 3 days a week, too.
The buffet restaurant is an indoor restaurant with open sides, plus outdoor seating. It offers early suppers with a children's menu, and adults-only dining for ages 14 and over from 15th June to 1st October.
These rooms are tastefully decorated and furnished in natural tones and can sleep up to three with a double and single bed. You can request a cot too. They can be sold as a single. There's a balcony or terrace to give you that bit of outdoor space too.

Great hotel with some adult only area's, a dining room, pool and block for adult's only which was very peaceful. The rooms were very comfortable and kept very clean by the housemaids.
The main dining room was manic so we only visited it at lunch time, there was a great choice of food in there something for everyone. We mainly used the adult only restaurant in the evening which had less choice but the ambiance was better.
The a la carte restaurants were good except for the Chinese, I would recommend the steak and the Italian ones.
The jetties were great for sunbathing with good quality loungers.More

Top class hotel.
Amazing or impressive words are not enough for this hotel. A big great reception building and friendly F/O team are even enough to shock you. Hotel and villas are placed in between pine trees and you are in the middle of nature. Foods and choices are excellent. Highly recommended and will be definitely back again.More

As other reviewers have said this is a wonderful hotel. Very clean and spacious. What surprised us was the complex is HUGE!! We were there two weeks and didn't get everywhere! Although so big, apart from the main dining room (in our opinion too big, noisy and not for the faint hearted!) You didn't feel there were too many people about. The staff were wonderful, so friendly and happy to spend time talking. We loved the adults only dining room. Not so many choices, but always plenty. Food is fine but not excellent. A lovely hotel, well situated, clean and good value from Thompsons. Would happily return , loved it!More
Good hotel, awful town.
This complex covers a large area with a combination of hotel block accommodation and rooms in smaller blocks built on a hillside in pine woods. the grounds are attractive and well maintained and trees shade much of the site. the all inclusive package covers most of your day-to-day needs unless you want an alcoholic drink between 00.30 and 10.00. there is a seafront path running through the site that takes you to Marmaris one way, about four miles to the castle and Icmeler the other way, about two miles to the town centre. there are dolmus minibuses running in both directions from the main road, about one hundred yards from the hotel reception.
Pretty location, spacious rooms, quiet and effective air conditioning. Good catering with food hygiene a priority everywhere. a variety of a la carte restaurants, food and drink stations and fridges loaded with bottled water everywhere. Friendly staff. comfortable sunbeds on the beach, jetties and pool sides. Freshwater showers by the beach and pools. There are six pools, all pleasantly located and well maintained, two or three are adults only if you want quiet.
Not so good points:-
The smaller accommodation blocks are located on a steep hillside and anyone with mobility or breathing difficulties will have problems unless they specify a room in the main hotel. The upper accommodation blocks are right next to the main Marmaris - Icmeler road and the traffic noise is considerable. The beach is so narrow it hardly deserves the title and the sand is an unattractive grit. the jetties or decks are the best bet for sea side sunbathing. The sea swimming area is confined due to motorised watersports which can also be a bit of a noise nuisance.
Marmaris....... this is a personal view and mine alone. You could probably walk from one end of the beach to the other from sunbed to sunbed (about two miles) and never step on sand. If "Blackpool Hotel", "Anfield Bar", "full English breakfast" and KFC, derelict sites and tacky fake watches float your boat you'll love the place. If you want authentic Turkey you'd probably have better luck in Skegness - got to Turunc, Dalyan, Kemer, Icmeler...... anywhere but Marmaris. The only redeeming factor is the Old Town and castle (which houses a small but interesting museum).
Icmeler.... Much more laid back and spacious than Marmaris, not a bad place for a meal out if you fancy the walk, Quite pleasant.
We liked Club Turban despite the shortcomings and had an enjoyable holiday there including a day out on the Club Turban Boat (at extra cost, like all the motorised water sports) but the horror that is Marmaris will probably dissuade us from going back.More

Our little honeymoon
Excellent! We stayed for 5 nights and it was perfect.
We arrived at 4am in the pouring
rain, we were shown to tea and coffee and soft drinks as it was still hot, then taken to our room by the ever so friendly concierge, who handled everything for us...thank you :-)
We were kindly put in the adults only
Part of the complex it was fab, extremely clean! Tea, coffee making facilities and a fridge that was stocked with bottled water.
During the day there were entertainment at the main pool with music playing all day, but there were many other pool to choose from, quite adult only pools and one with a couple of slides....the beach and beach bar were great and served ace cocktails...the food was of good quality too, evening meals were fantastic and a huge variety of things to choose from, five al a carte restaurants to choose from... Over all we had a brill time and can't wait to return,
Thank you for giving us an excellent time
