"Unwelcome"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Below Average

Booked this hotel as a last minute deal. Paid £170 each so we wasnt expecting Grand Azur standards. Upon arrival (6.30 evening) the very young girl on reception took copies of our passports but couldnt find our booking !! even though I had given her the accomodation voucher!!, after 15 minutes of looking she found it !!! She took us to the room, the room was clean, spacious and bright. We dumped our stuff and left as the other half was STARVING !!!. We were only using the hotel as a base and somewhere to sleep as we have 2 family restaurants in Marmaris and Icmeler. During our time of coming and going, staff would sometimes smile but more likely not as we were not using their facilities. On our last day the manager asked my partner what he was doing here? to which he replied he was on holiday and staying in the apartnent and had been for the past 6/7 days. She was very rude and obnocsious at the way she was speaking to him (He is origionally from turkey) and told him that he cant stay there. She asked for his passport and he told her that the young girl had taken a copy of his BRITISH passport when we checked in. She confirmed this with the young girl and then said oh ok then. we walked away - I was furious and so it happens there was our rep in the bar, I relayed what had happended and she said she would have a word with the managewr - i'm certain that that disnt happen. she hasto work wit them for the rest of the season and we were on our last day. I can understand that hotels dont want turkish people who live in the resort staying in their hotels as they have to make money off holiday makers and resort workers wouldnt spend a lot but they should get their facts / information before accusing / making someone feel unwelcome. I would not reccomend this hotel to anyone but only on the fact of the staff attitudes towards their own race.

"never again"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Poor

Open quote

Spent two weeks at these apartments, returned 6th august 2011. Been to turkey five times stayed in some lovely places this was not one of them. Would never stay here again even free of charge. The management are ignorant and only want to know you when you are spending money. Booked a self catering holiday as we like to go to different places to eat and drink and do our own trips. Some of the staff are nice but others try to pressure you to eat there, if you dont they say they dont get paid as they work on commission, not my problem. Entertainment same every night not very good. We made the best of it but never again.

"what a hole"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Poor

Open quote

We booked a late deal to the golden orange in early Sept 2010 as we knew the location very well. We have stayed in Armutalan in Marmaris 6 times now and always drink in the Amadeus bar which is next door to the Golden Orange and have stayed in club happy days and Antique Palace. On arrival we were showed to our room which was the most dirty hole vie stayed in. the pillows had no pillow cases on and looked like someone had peed all over the pillows and they had dried, Because we did not eat there the 1st day the staff refused to speak to us which did not bother us as we planned to spend all our time at Amadeus bar and Antique Palace. We went to see our old hotel we stayed in Icmeler in July this year and was offered to move to the hotel for the 5 days left for £30. We jumped at the chance and were given a lift from the hotel boss to pick up our bags. Over all i would never stay in the golden Shower as we now call it lol and would not recommend it to a tramp.

"Never Staff Here!"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Poor

Open quote

I went to Marmaris August 2010 and we stayed at the Golden Orange II.

The staff were great and very friendly for the first 2-3 nights however when we decided we fancied a change and thought we would eat and drink somewhere else they all turned on us.

They blanked us and did not even speak to us, especially the manager!!! They no longer shuck our hands and greeted us with smiles however two of the staff (Ferdy and Oscar) were very nice throughout.

We were later thrown out of the hotel for being to noisy (what do they expect from a group of 6 geordies), the manager even threatened to have our cases thrown onto the street...

Now this hotel is great, as long as you act like your in a library and that u eat and drink there throughout your hole stay...

I would never stop here again even if i was payed, Hotel manager is not a nice person and i dont understand how he can be a hotel manager after the way he tret not just my group but a number of groups aswell, horrible horrible excuse for a person!

Good Luck if uve booked for here!

"Brilliant!!!!!!!!!!"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Me and my boyfriend went to the golden orange the end of june 2009. I was a little worried due to previous reviews but when i got there i realised there was absolutely nothing to worry about. The rooms are basic but whats expected as you get what you pay for. Anyways who wants to spend their holidays in their room. In the golden orange you only need them to change and sleep. With a great bar and restaurant underneath the hotel you dont need to worry about buying food and cooking yourself as the food is cheap and absolutely to die for. Me and my boyfriend had a giggle as the jacket potatos are on steroids!!!! HUGE!!! And i had to have a fry up every morning lol. Testi kebab is brilliant and a must try. There was always a great atmosphere in the evening and entertainment every night although we did see 3 of the the acts twice in our two week stay. The guys who worked there were brilliant and loved to dance and always got me and my boyfriend involved in all the dancing. We were usually up very late with the guys and 2 friends we made drinking alcohol...great fun. Service was great and the rooms got cleaned almost everyday with the beds changed 5 times in 2 weeks and towels every day. Nothing was ever a problem to any of the staff. Poolside was always clean, bar and food area also. The location was great in my opinion as it was not in the hustle and bustle ov marmaris town. There was shops and supermarkets and different bars down the street but for an excellent night out, a dolmus stops outside the hotel every 15 minutes until about 11 at night to take you to marmaris and taxis back are cheap. I feel this hotel is great for people of all ages except children as there is not much for them to do. There is a pool slide but when it comes on the adults and teens make alot of use of it and become rowdy. Just one thing. Do not book trips with your rep. They rip you off!! They have little shops to book your trips from which are much cheaper and the jeep safari is a must!!! Me and my boyfriend are definately going back to the golden orange in 2011 with friends and are cotemplating going 2010 also as it is cheap. If you go u will definately enjoy!!!!!!!!

Well, we herd the weather new's in England and straight away thought we best book a holiday abroad as we booked a holiday in England. After weeks of looking my mum and dad found a last minute deal for the Golden Orange Apartments. After they booked it we read the reviews for the hotel and we were not impressed!! plucking up all our courage we packed our things and arrived in Turkey.

As it being our first time in Turkey, we were aprehensive. We arrived at the apartments and as soon as we pulled up a member of the bar staff which was attatched to the hotel helped us with our luggage. We checked in and paid for our air condidtioning which was only situatied in the bedoom.. for a family of four you would be better off staying in a 2 room apartment. When we got to our room and found there wasnt too much space for clothing etc but we managed, the room was very basic and we did not cook in it as we didnt feel compfertable. Although the room was very clean and always had fresh bed sheets and towel every other day. One problem we had in the room when you went to the toilet you had something driping on you, but this was only our room. Also if the toilet door was left open you had a strong smell of the drains pass through your room, this wasnt too much of a problem as we only slept and washed in the room.

The reception staff and maids were very freindly and polite, and so were the bar staff but it was the bar staff (Simpsons 2 bar/restaurant) who really made our holiday. Some nights we ate out and tryed other pubs but we always ended back up at the Simpsons bar to dance and have a great laugh with the bar staff and other people there. When we ate there we found the drinks and food were cheap and great quality. From 10pm-12pm the bar staff would dance all night and get people up to dance too.

All in all the Golden Orange was a fantastic place to stay for the price it was (you get what you pay for) and was situated and a great plae too. The bar was also fantastic. As more of us will be coming on holiday in 2010 we will be getting a villa near Golden Orange but visting Simpsons 2 bar rather alot! Very recommended. Thankyou Golden Orange Apartments for a fab holiday! 5* in our eyes!

"Wouldn't Recomend"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Below Average

Open quote

On arrival staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly. However as the weeks holiday progressed things seemed to go downhill. We had no bedsheets all week eventhough we asked on several occasions. We didnt eat at the Simpsons bar attached to the hotel until the 2nd last night of our stay. One member of staff was extremely offended at this and was rude to us. Saying that next year we wouldnt be made welcome simply because we chose not to eat there. However, the food we did get there was really nice, this member of staffs rudeness was what stuck out more though. The room was pretty basic, but we were partyy animal holidayers so only used it for somewhere to kip for a few hours !! Also, we seemed to think there was a problem with the drains, as it smelt like we were living on a sewage farm - not nice !

"EXPECT NOWT THEN YOU WONT BE D/APPOINTED"

Overall Hotel Rating:

Firstly:- This is not a hotel!!!! it is self catering appartments! The staff and Manager become rude and ignore you if you don't eat in the Simpsons bar/resturante that is attached to the appartments, we were ignored on many occasions when trying to order breakfast because we didnt eat our eve meal there the night before. The manager of Simpsons bar needs some lessons on how to treat paying customers. He portrayed arragonce, ignorance and spat his dummy out when he didnt get his own way. The bar boys did a good job entertaining the customers although it became very repetative and became quite tiresome! The food however was very very nice (although we didnt want to eat there for 2 weeks. Full English for £1.00............Couldnt fault the chef Appartments are very basic, we had plug sockets hanging off, so dated they are in desperate need for an up-date Maid service was fine, clean towels/linen on a regular basis throughout our stay and the maids were very pleasant. The staff on reception are lovely and try to make your stay pleasant. I love Turkey and will have plenty more holidays in this Wonderful Country, however i would never stay here at the Golden Orange Appartments again.

The apartments are basic but they are cheap so it is expected. The rooms were clean and tidy and the staff were just fantastic. They will do whatever they can to help and are always up beat. Buses run just outside the hotel into marmaris so very handy and plenty of shops and bars on the way in if you want to stop and wonder around. overall i thought it was a great all round place to stay.

our trip to marmaris was brill the place was lovely locals were friendly and it was cheap. The beach is only narrow and shingles but is very relaxing.we visited lots of bars and restaurants we recommend veronicas and the lovely chinease restaurant on the main road it was the best ever.

the hotel ahhhhhhhhh were do we start on arrival it looked like it was derelict our room was small dirty and smelt like sewers.we saw rats in the garden area near to where children were playing. the pool was dirty the sun beds broke. the staff worked very hard poor mustaffa worked all day and night in reception grabbing an hour sleep when ever he could. the 24hrs shop was ran by the same man for 2 weeks when did he sleep?

our bills for drinks in the hotel always contained extras (drinks we never had) when telling the owner she just ignored us snubbed us .

marmaris is a lovely place the golden orange is a sad place. we did use the pool and eat in ahotel further down the road called the bouganvilla it was fantastic they let us use there pool we ate their had drinks got on really well with their staff and we weren't even staying at that hotel but we will be doing this year.
