Marmaris Imperial  

The peaceful Marmaris Imperial pairs rustic good looks with views of the sea.

Location-wise, this place is as private as it gets. It’s set on a peninsula at the foot of a pine-cloaked hill. It means that much of the complex is encircled by the Mediterranean Sea.

The hotel is nestled in a forest of trees, which gives it a rustic feel. Rooms are scattered among the greenery in stone-built bungalow blocks. You’ll find hammocks tied between the pine trees, too.

Great place to stay

This was our first time to Turkey and the first time we'd stayed at a 'couples only' hotel - it didn't disappoint. We only have 2 slight negatives about the hotel itself so will get them out of the way first; the mattress was too hard for our liking and it was impossible to get a table in the à la carte restaurant during our week stay. Back to some of the great things about this resort; it's set in lovely grounds, clean and tidy everywhere. We loved the different areas, ourselves favouring the Harmony area, and the whole resort just had a lovely ambience about it. We're not usually fans of all inclusive holidays, and whilst the food was a bit 'samey', there was enough choice that it really didn't matter - we were more than happy to feast on the great selection from the salad bar each day, and we've never eaten so many desserts as we did during our stay! We ate out one night in Marmaris itself by the marina but the food at the Imperial was far better. Yes, there are a lot of steep steps in the resort but we just walked along the sloped pathways instead, which were kinder on my dodgy knees, and the meandering walks just add to the charm of the place. This is a well thought out, well kept resort, much of which must be down to the hard working staff who keep it that way. Maybe just invest in some better mattresses but we would definately recommend this resort.More

Great hotel.....beware Thomson rip offs!!

Fantastic hotel......great staff and chilled atmosphere, setting is brilliant, everything you need for a relaxing holiday....however watch out for the Thomson reps overselling the "VIP" excursions......they are over priced and the last day "Daliyan plus" is a total rip off....most stressful final day of any holiday i have ever suffered.....BEWARE!!!More

Fabulous

stayed for a week early October and really enjoyed a chilled out week in beautiful surroundings. Food was as expected for all inclusive. I read reviews and so there were no surprises but if anyone is unclear THIS HOTEL IS NOT FOR PEOPLE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES. The staff here are fantastic and work very hard, special thanks to Omer, Tayfun and the lovely Denis in the bar for being such fun.More

Perfectly located, great hotel!

In a nutshell: beautiful location, fantastic beach, watersports and surrounding area, friendly staff, decent food, basic rooms, low quality entertainment. Would recommend to friends and family for a relaxing holiday with the option to find more excitement/explore if you want to. The Hotel: The rooms are pretty basic; they have everything you need. I'd compare them to a Premier Inn in the UK - simple, but clean and tidy. We had a great view by our room and when we arrived late at night we could hear the sea just down below our room, which was lovely. The hotel is set out with a lot of apartments in the hills which was really nice instead of all being in one block building. The beds are a little firm and my bathrobe had someone else's makeup on it and a hole in our bed sheet when we arrived. These little things let the standard down overall. The hotel is situated in the hills, so depending on your room there may be a few stairs to climb. To be honest, looking at ourselves and everyone else on the beach, a little bit of exercise isn't doing anyone any harm if you catch my drift. We appreciated being a little puffed out after lazing around all day! There is a buggy service you can use if you need to. It was really nice to see the hotel is very environmentally friendly - the most environmentally conscious we've come across. They're also really considerate of animals - from the cat cafe they've built to house and feed the many stray cats roaming around, to the information telling people to beware of the snails trying to cross the paths! Location: The location of the hotel is absolutely stunning. It's surrounded by greenery and is really beautiful and relaxing. There is a private sandy beach with plenty of sun loungers. We went in October, so the sea was a little chilly but the water is clear. Marmaris can be accessed by a taxi boat at the hotel or a bus from the front gates. It's about 10-15 minutes away by bus. We didn't rate Marmaris at all and wouldn't return, but the bays surrounding the hotel are accessible by tour or rented boat and are so worth it. The water is clear and turquoise and filled with pretty fish, so perfect for snorkelling! Discounting Marmaris itself, the hotel's location is beautiful and picturesque. Things to do: As a package holiday with Thomson, they put on a lot of activities and entertainment. I guess they appeal to some people, but we found it all a little hi-de-hi and Butlins-esque. After watching the entertainment for one evening, we spent the rest of our holiday nights on the beach or on our balcony! It was our idea of hell coming abroad to listen to people singing the Top 40 charts from the last 5 years, but each to their own... Further along the beach there is a watersports station which we can't rate highly enough. We didn't catch the name of the owner, but he and his team are absolutely brilliant! They have jet skis, speed boats, parasailing - the lot! We did most of the activities and the guy (we didn't manage to catch his name unfortunately) was so nice and helpful. Honestly can't rate them enough and they're an asset to the hotel. The jet skis are great to go and explore the bays, the hire boat is an absolute must as you can rent it for 5 hours and go off snorkelling in the turquoise waters and the inflatable seat was hilarious. We also did a few excursions via Thomson. Can highly recommend the Blue Deluxe Cruise which was a great day out! The Dalyan Discovery tour was also a good experience. It's nice to get out of the hotel and see more of Turkey. Similar tours can be booked in Marmaris for cheaper, but all the stalls look really run down and 'dodgy' in all honesty. Would rather spend a bit more money and know I am going with Thomson than complete strangers. We used the spa a couple of times. Highly recommend the packages there as they're fantastic and very reasonably priced compared to the UK. If you haven't had a Turkish Bath before you must try it out - very relaxing! The massages were one of the best we've ever had and sorted out my fiancées frozen shoulder. We enjoyed it so much we went back for another mini treatment on our last day. Food and Drink: The hotel runs different theme nights each day. There is tons to choose from and we always found something to have for lunch and dinner. However, with it being a buffet style, things like the meat can be out a while and although we fancied beef on a number of occasions, it was as tough as old boots unfortunately. The staff are really helpful and friendly and come by regularly to refill your drinks and take your plates promptly. We don't really drink, but when we did they were really strong - 3 parts gin, 1 part tonic - which could be good or bad depending on your point of view. We met plenty of people who had had a few merry nights, so I don't doubt the strength of the alcohol. There are a few bars situated along the beach where you can grab snacks and make your own rolls which was nice if you felt peckish or didn't want to go for a full lunch at the restaurant. You can also get your cold drinks from these as well as using the coffee machines.More

beautiful setting of the Marmaris Imperial

The care and thought that had gone into planning the layout and design of this hotel was top notch. The grounds were beautiful, with lots of different areas of the complex to meet most needs. We could not fault either the hotel or the customer service delivered by the staff, it was exceptional.More
