Best Marmaris Hotels

Marmaris Hotels

Once a tiny fishing village, Marmaris has emulated many Mediterranean resorts, becoming a sprawling summertime mega-complex of hotels, restaurants and clubs catering to holidaymakers from all over Europe and beyond. A big bustling resort town – perfect for lazing with a beer while topping up your tan in the hot sun – Marmaris is one of few Turkish towns where fun in the sun behaviour is acceptable. Clear turquoise seas and shores full of sunbeds make Marmaris a haven for sunbathers.

Things to see

You won’t run out of things to do in Marmaris, whether it’s perusing the Thursday Market for a bargain souvenir, lazing on a sunbed on the bustling beach – if you’re lucky your hotel might have its own private area – or bumping shoulders with the affluent yachting crowd in Marmaris Marina. Families will enjoy afternoon thrills at one of the splash happy water parks – both Aquadream and Atlantis Water Park have an array of colourful flumes and slides suitable for all ages. If you fancy getting away from the hustle and bustle, take a boat trip to Cleopatra Island to lie on the fine golden sands – unusual for the eastern Mediterranean where beaches are often made of coarse sand – and paddle around in the shallow azure water. If you need a break from the beach take a wander up to the crumbly Amphitheatre remains for a look into the island’s history.

Hotels in Marmaris

Due to the swathes of package holiday tourists that head to the area, many of Marmaris’ hotels offer all inclusive accommodation. This is often extremely good value, but does limit your choice of food, so those who prefer to eat in local restaurants should look for half-board or self-catering accommodation. Most hotels in the area are 3-star rated with an on-site pool, WiFi and en suite bedrooms as standard. A handful of 4 and 5-star rated hotels offering luxurious resort facilities are available, but can vary greatly in quality so it’s worth checking reviews before your book.

Where to stay

The main resort of Marmaris has a vibrant, busy central area full of restaurants, shops and attractions. Its main nightlife area along Bar Street has a wealth of pubs, bars and clubs offering entertainment well into the early hours, perfect if you fancy relaxing in the sun by day and partying at night. If you fancy a slightly quieter area head to Icmeler. Just 8 kilometres from Marmaris, it has a much smaller nightlife hub, is less developed and offers scenic hiking in the surrounding mountains. Armutalan – a suburb of Marmaris – is away from the beach but much quieter at night.

How to get to Marmaris

Many charter and budget airlines fly direct from the UK to Dalaman – approximately 2 hours’ drive away – with most increasing their number of flights in high season. Many car hire firms operate in Dalaman if you fancy making your own way to Marmaris, though many hotels offer free airport transfers if arranged in advance. Local taxis tend to be expensive so it’s best to sort out your travel arrangements before you arrive. Once in Marmaris you can get around quite easily without a car, as local inexpensive hop-on hop-off minibuses run routes around the town and nearby resorts.
