I have stayed at this hotel 5 years in a row and always have an amazing time. The staff in the hotel are always welcoming and very friendly. The Hotel is beautiful and the rooms are always really comfy to stay in and nicely decorated. I would recommend having a room with a balcony as the view is stunning and it's lovely to sit on the balcony both first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The food in the hotel is very tasty and you always have plenty of variety to choose from. The pool and pool side area are both always kept clean and tidy and it's lovely to sit by the pool and relax. It is a family hotel but we've never ever had an experience where there are children running around unattended and disturbing everybody else's holiday. In fact the staff there are brilliant with the children and keep them well entertained. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and definitely plan to go back there myself very soon.More
A week's stay in Turkey after a cruise
This is a very big hotel situated a bus ride out of Marmaris. We stayed well up in the trees and were not made aware of the availability of the buggies picking up and dropping off until well through the holiday. The food in the main restaurant was poorly laid out and children were allowed to walk, and even run, through the restaurant with plates of food some of which ended up on the floor or with glasses of juice. If it hadn't been for the adults only restaurant and the themed restaurants, we would have been looking to return home after the first couple of days.
We experienced the themed restaurants, all but the Turkish, which were good; the steak restaurant being our favourite.
The room was very clean and the chamber maid was very pleasant.
We didn't experience the entertainment.More
Excellent; it feels like a small private complex in the forest
Although I do not like big all inclusive hotels, I like Grand Yazici a lot. I really recommend this hotel. At Grand Yazici you do not have the feeling that you are on a big complex. The location is organized in a very smart way. So you do not see all the people all the time. And because the houses/restaurant/swimming pools are divided over the complex in the forest it just feels like a small private complex.
Tip for the best room: choose a room up the hill (ask in your reservation). This is only for people who are not disabled.
I also like the refrigerators with take a way bottles of water all over the place. At the beach there are enough sun beds, so there is no need for stress for a bed. There is even free WiFi at the beach! :-)
The main restaurant is very clean & decent and there is enough variation in the food during the day and the week. One day sushi, one day Italian food, one day Turkish food ed. Also the other restaurants for a snack, lunch, afternoon snack, tea time, ice cream are very good.
In the evening there is much to do on the complex. The shows in the theater are very good (hot chocolate ed). We also liked the beach parties at the beach club, especially the white party (do not forget to bring white clothes). I also recommend the boat trip organized by the hotel. It is cheap and nice.
At the swimming pool they work with a deposit for every day clean towels. At the end of your holiday you get your deposit back. Tip: exclusive for people from The Netherlands. Give a big smile, greet in Dutch and ask for 2 towels per person instead of 1 towel per person. The men at the towel kiosk speaks Dutch!
For your a la cart choice you really need to go to the Italian restaurant. Be aware that you need an empty stomach otherwise you can not eat the 6 courses :-)
It is also nice that there is a big boulevard. When you walk to the right +/- 7 km you go to Icmeler, when you walk to the left +/- 5 km you go to Marmaris. If it is to hot for a walk you can take a Dolmus bus for 2,5/5TL. At the front of the hotel (reception side) you walk straight ahead. Then you meet a crowdy road. Cross the road when you want the Dolmus to Iclmeler. Do not cross the road when you want the Dolmus to Marmaris. Marmaris is a hot spot for shop a holics.More
We arrived late at night after being delayed by an hour at Bournemouth Airport. We had a private transfer which was fab they were still waiting for us to arrive we stop on route to hotel to get bottle from the transfer company which was very welcome. We checked in with ease and was given block B which was I adult only block, we had already emailed the hotel requesting this block so it does work. We were given a roll when we arrived at checkin. The rooms we were given at first were not great as the balcony was with a high wall as it was in the eaves. So we asked to change they said come back in morning and they would see what they could do. So of we went for a drink or two then went for midnight soup delicious.
We got up next morning and went for breakfast what can I say it was lovely really couldn't fault it we had breakfast in the Adult block they also do evening meals in there which I have to say we only eat in twice as we used all the a la carte resturants couldn't fault them either.
We did get our room changed in same block down to level 2 brilliant. We were very luck to be moved with our friends as well with rooms next door to each other so happy days.
So once we had moved into our new rooms it was of to get some sunshine round the pool in the adult block only brilliant.
For lunch we went to the cake cafe omg you will put on weight while you stay at this hotel.
Entertainment in evening is ok but we were a 4 Person group so we had a great time any way.
I could go on and on I can truly say I had an amazing holiday and we will be returning here.More
