Overall Hotel Rating:

We had heared many rumours about turkey and this hotel had some critics, but you should never believe what you read, yes apartments are basic but everything else is really cheap so as long as we could put our heads down and sleep then ok. The staff in the hotel from the cleaners to the boss were fantastic, Carlos "a bit of a poser" but really nice guy when you got to know him, Ozzy at the annex bar & pool who my kids thought was a great lad and Steve"Cvolkan" catered for all our bar and food requests. As it was 45 to 48 degree's in the afternoon we spent a fair bit of time by the pool as it was to hot to walk anywhere, this is where the TOM device came in handy and we got £250(750TL) credited on it at the begining of the holiday which meant we got 20% off food and drinks which was great and soon got used by the pool (cannot be used on happy hour and cocktail hour). The hotel maybe basic but all the staff were very friendly, massive thanks to NESS & ZOE the best rep's that ive had on my holidays abroad, so please remember "IT'S NOT THE RITZ" and it cannot be so bad as it gets booked up really quick every year...see you in marmaris soon guys and girls !

"lovely hotel"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Very Good

Had a lovely week here and it was excellent value for money. There were three adults and a 18months old month old baby. He loved the little ride around the pool. We had a really big apartment and although a little dated it had everything we needed. The staff were friendly but not quite as so if you didn't eat within the hotel. there are plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby and in marmaris itself.

"Best Holiday"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Very Good

Open quote

We stayed at the Club Exelcior in July 2011 and we had the BEST time! All the staff were very polite and helpful, the rooms were clean and the restaurant sold cheap and delicious food. We had been to Turkey before but stayed at a much 'cheaper' hotel, yet found this was very good value and a world apart. Were werent on the beach front, but this was a benefit as the staff turned the music off at midnight so we could get a good nights sleep, yet Bar Street was only a 10 minute walk away. We found a great excursion office to book all our tours with, 'Nostradamus Travel'. We tried a Turkish Bath at 'Uncle Johns', directly opposite the hotel, but we werent impressed with the sevice so thought we'd try next door at Nostradamus, and boy were we glad we did!' The Turkish guide who helped us, Evim ( I think!), gave us so much advise, from which tours to go on, on which days, to local restaurants that offered the best value. We ate at 'Amfi' restaurant a few times, or waiter, 'Pysco' was particualy lovely, believe it or not! If you eat dinner of a night time you get a full English breakfast the next morning for free! (Again, one of Evrims reccomendations!) All in all, we had a fabulous family holiday and would reccommend Club Exelcior to Anyone

We returned from a lovely holiday at excelsior in october, although slightly out of season we had a fantastic time, the rooms are basic but comfortable and have all you need for self catering, they are cleaned daily, the bar staff cant do enough for you,a few have actually become friends, the pools are clean and great for the kids our are 1 and 8 both enjoyed themselves, entertainment was good without being pushy. We are going back there next year hopefully to get married, we got engaged this year one evening at the hotel the staff especially lisa made it really special. All in all a fantastic memorable holiday.

" Very Disappointing"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Average

Open quote

My family spent two weeks here at the end of July 2010 and did not enjoy our stay. The hotel is in need of an update as it looks tired. The pool area is a big let down and beds are booked by people before they go to bed and they never appear on them until near luch.We gave up trying to get a bed after two days and went to use another hotel pool. Food is expensive in the hotel compared to loads of retaurants around it. You will be hassled as you leave the hotel every night to stay and eat but we never stayed - go to the excellent Belle a Blue 2 mins away. Also try the Welcome Inn -the food is great and the hospitality is too. Lots of excursions avbailable from the street operators but shop around for the best prices- the Jeep safari is a must!

Stayed here with my daughter 2 friends and there children. Set back from marmaris about a 15 min walk to the beach. Nice size pools good slides for the children. This is my 8th time too turkey 6th time to marmaris. When we arrived we didnt have the nicest welcome. We got there about 1 in the morning and went to the bar for a drink before bed as we were all in the excited holiday mood. The bar staff were all stood round with faces like thunder! Didnt make us feel to wecome.

"absolutley brilliant!!"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Excellent

Open quote

this hotel is lovely its very clean and maid service and receptionist is brilliant! i only stayed for 5 nights and can honestly say i didnt wana come home! it is literally the only holiday (out of about 9) i have not felt home sick!

pool area is clean and safe for kids, the pool however was soooo cold but it is needed as the weather is so hot.. i went 7th october and it was like 30+ the whole time i was ther. the only thing i dont recommend is the spa it was such a waste of money i paid 100 lira for a deluxe package it was more like a wash and rub...but it really is the only bad point to this hotel.

i didnt eat ther so cant comment on food. drink is ok priced... service is ok.

we ate everynight at bella blu a restaurant litterally over the road..the food was absoltely beautiful. the service was amazing and the choice was fab! we just could not eat anywhere els, we'd go to walk past and just turn back it was seriously that nice.

now on my first day i was really shocked at how "pushy" the turkish are, it was my first time in turkey and i really thought i was gonna hate it the day i got there. they jump on you as soon as they see u comin they beg u to buy drink, genuine fakes, food, or watever els they wanna sell.. an they dont take no for an answer, you have to be really stirn and mean no or they jus blag you to buy everything. As soon as youve got used to saying NO it gets easier an doesnt bother u as much! but serioulsy dont go ther if ur easily persuaded all your spending money will be gone the first day....lol! and another thing haggle haggle haggle never pay wat they ask they will always drop the price if u threaten not to buy..

overall absolutely brill!!!

(except dalaman airport is a joke! i was charged £8 for a mars bar an diet coke! and £11 for a big mac meal!! take a sandwich an drink with you its ridiculous!)

Have just spent a week in the junior apartments,and what a week. The apartments were great, fun filled day and nights. Staff were brilliant,place was spotless.Met loads of great people there and will definatly be returning next year. Every night was entertainment and what a laugh we had. Had no need to visit beach as ther was so much to do, plenty of restaurants, particulary dominoes for a real british breakfast,and bella blu which served the most amazing food. If you want a great holiday this is the place to stay. Thanks john and all the staff.

Very good hotel lots to do duing the day, you have a chose of the quieter excelssior junior or the busier main pool.Hotel was very clean around the pool area in reception and the rooms were clean good maid service.Food and drink was resonable and not expensive.The waiters were friendly and efficcent and the entertainers were good at getting people to participate. The only down fall was around 2a.m there would be 50% of the sun loungers with towels on them. Overall a good 2 weeks holiday which i would consider going back.
