The Marmaris Imperial Hotel (adults only) is located approximately 1.5-2 hours away from the airport and just 10 km outside of the sea port of Marmaris. The hotel rooms are carved into a hillside nestled amongst a lot of trees and greenery. This location is not wheel chair friendly at all, as this hotel has multiple steps leading everywhere. However the hotel does provide a golf buggy transfer service from the rooms to the reception building. Depending on your room location depends on how many steps you will have to climb or decend. We were in 540, and we had a minimum of 109 steps to reach our room from the promenade. The room was spacious and was supplied with free bottled water, tea and coffee.There is a safe in each room costing 1.5 euro per day to rent. All rooms have air cons with remote controls. A TV with a selection on international viewing is available. Free Wifi is plumbed in throughout most location in the hotel rooms and grounds.
The dinning facilities were very good. There are themed evenings at the restaurant with international quisene to match. The selection of food available could not be faultered. There was live entertainment every evening, with music and dancing when the acts have finished. The staff are all friendly and helpful.
There is a daytime activity organised such as water polo, football, archery, Pilates, single or double kayaking and there are some mountain bikes available as well. There is a large "activity" pool and a standard square pool in the "relax" area within the hotel, both well maintained abs clean. Jetskis, parascending and water skiing is available but this is not free.
There are just a few shops at the hotel but for shopping Marmaris is only a short, cheap bus ride away, with frequent picks ups and drop offs just outside the hotel main gate.
An excellent location for a relaxing holiday. We would go back there again, but the rest of the world beckons.More

We had our honeymoon at this hotel . I had emailed ahead twice asking the hotel to prepare something special . We arrived after a transfer with no rep on board late at night to the hotel where there was no food available and no clear instruction where we could get anything. Arrived in room to no honeymoon prep . I was disappointed . Rooms are clean and basic . I had emailed for a mattress topper because of back problems but there was none . Slightly disappointed . Mentioned this to rep the next day he told me they have over 40 honeymooners a week and if we wanted anything special we would have had to pay extra I told him we would have but nothing was provided . The next day there was some fruit and wine put in our room
After to chatting with other guests they mentioned speaking to Jane Guest relations , she was lovely and helpful and asked if we would like them to make up the room with petals on the beds. This was done and it looked fab . Hotel food was lovely varied and fresh , great vegetarian and local options . Beach perfect and tranquil and quiet pool exactly that . Entertainment varied great Motown band and local Turkish dancers . Resident duo were repetitive . Overall a lovely destination in a nice hotel . Hairdresser and spa very good value . Had my hair cut and highlighted for around Â£50 and beautifully done . Turkish bath spa and massage all fantastic just Â£35 . Another gripe no rep to check us onto coach we had to sign a piece of paper no journey explained time wise or security procedures . No rep either journey just a taped message from rep at airport with a few instructions and asking for a tip for the driver ! Quite comical but would have appreciated a rep as a long dark journey with no explanation . Maybe this is due to thompsons cut backs ? Staff in the hotel were very polite and it was a great place to spend a honeymoonMore
This is the second time we have bern to the Imperial, and the only time we have EVER been back to a hotel. I email the hotel direct to request a lower room..as it is on a hillside and my partner was recovering from a knee op. Sadly I got no response. I then contacted Tour Operator and they dais they eould pass my request on.
It was lucky for us they did and we got a room close to reception.
Negatives....mmmmm...struggling here, perhaps no yoga or yoga mats to practice on. And my miss fortune the dreaded wasps feasted on me or something did, but you can not expect to be in such an glorious outdoor location without nature having its revenge!!
Food was fantastic. Salads and fresh fish, great local dishes, frankly it beggers belief that folk sit down with white sliced bread, chips and pizza, but hey if thats your bag ( and looking at the ammount of obese folk) then you too are catered for.
Drinks...if people think they are not strong, perhaps they have a drink problem. Evening meal you are bought drinks to the table without having to look for a waiter- they and the barstaff deserve a mention- friendly, fun well spoken, some of the niciest I have come across
Entertainment- its there if you want it, not in your face, you can join in or just observe. I thought the rep Maxine was a better singer than the local group, but that was personal taste.
We didnt go to the pool bar preferring the quiter relax bar.
All in all another relaxing holiday, never know we may be back for a 3rd year.More
Totally as expected...and as stated in my research...
Wow...I have just got back from my holiday and I have to tell you I loved it...there are some amazing staff there...as well as amazing food, entertainment and scenery...my wife and I looked everywhere for a fab holiday and from some friends of ours recommendations we looked up the hotel we checked everything the brochure, the Internet, trip advisor and a Thomson shop...so we knew to well about the steps the views the food everything...I always research my holiday I pay so much for it I want to know what I'm getting and everything is as stated...yes steps but I knew it and in fact I'm on holiday so I didn't Rush anywhere...easy...but the buggy helped great little touch...my room was fab...the maid looked after us and no we didn't use it on the rest day I agree save the environment it's only 1 day clean yourself...not hard...the book swap was great...the tv room was nice...the entertainment was fab...Carl and Maxine great staff and great singers...really enjoyed listening to them and finding out about the future for them both good luck...didn't use the reps but I'm sure they were good they seemed to always be around...just like The hotel manager Sharon I think her name is I saw her on the gala night meeting people and spending time to chat that was also a nice touch as was the flower my wife was given on the black and white night...Carl and Maxine made it special with drinks and nibbles...The golden tones were very good as was the theatre shows...one thing that ruined our holiday was hearing english people moaning why??? It's a perfect location with great food why do you feel the need to moan...do your research check this very own website and email the hotel ask questions moaning about the little things no wonder sometimes i get embarrassed to be english..and please remember you are in Turkey so no they may not speak english but do you speak Turkish...a little Merhaba which means hello by the way goes a long way and the staff then try and teach you words which added to the holiday...in fact it's safe to say I had a great time an I want to go back to this excellent resort...yes resort not a block hotel but lovely little 'houses' in the mountain side just what the doctor ordered...thank you everyone Sharon you run a tight ship well done I hope you and the staff get some recognition...thank you...More
Perfection ... AGAIN!!!
What can we say about this hotel that we haven't said before!!
We arrived on 30th September for 7 nights. We arrived during the night and were greeted by reception and shown where our room was but didn't use the buggy service as we know the hotel like the back of our hand!
The room was amazing as always :)
The myth's about the food not being good.... Well people must be stuck for something to moan about there is so much choice its untrue. Suleyman looked after us brilliantly in the restaurant as always
Wasps can be a problem but took a fly squatter to deal with them ;)
All the areas of the hotel are kept spotlessly clean
The steak restaurant is a must during a stay. It is at a extra cost but the food and the service from Cihan and Dilara was amazing
Bar service was brilliant and special thanks must go to Ibrahim
The on site watersports was also brilliant Serdar is a true gent who looks after all your needs and the sunset cruise , jet ski big mable and water ski are a must. He even took time out after work to go for a meal and drinks in marmaris with us
Jane was brilliant in the pr department as well and was helpful and always seen around if you needed anything, although we did miss not seeing the usual pr manager ozlem around as she was on maternity leave but Stil managed to meet with her in marmaris.
Special thanks must go to The manageress Sharon, front office manager Ali, Housekeeping manager Gul, watersports manager Serdar, PR manager Ozlem, Ibrahim in the bar, Suleyman in the restaurant for an amazing stay as always and we can't wait to be back with you all in May 2015
