We stayed here in September 2015 and will now make this our go to destination in Turkey. The location is fabulous, breakfast is very high quality and Bodrum is a great place. We only had dinner in the hotel once, since we enjoyed the stroll into Bodrum in the evening, and we wished we had dined in the hotel more often – the dinner was excellent.
In terms of staff, Kingsley was very attentive and nothing was too much for him. Our room was lovely, sea view and very private, and the bed was so comfortable.

Once you set foot in the Marmara, you are tempted not to leave again. We got there, tired from long flights but ready to explore. So we walked the town, hunted for good food (which we did find at Kocadon) but frankly once we got back, we decided ambition was overrated. Whiling away the time at the pool in the shade on huge pillows with impecable service, lazily getting up for lunch (yes, we had that much energy, although in hinsight I wonder if the folks that got food brought down where smarter – although that meant they missed out on the incredible selection from the buffet) there really is no reason to leave the premises. With a view over Bodrum to the ocean, lush gardens and cool drinks and soothing music – it is no surprise that the stress melts away. If you have some time, explore the building and check out all the incredibly cool photographs of locals and their stories.

I have wanted this review to be so positive, enthusiastic, passionate
and complimentary, so recommending, so congratulatory that, until now,
I have been blocked, frozen by the prospect of writing and not making it
enough… today, as the end of year looms, I crash through that barrier!

Let me first of all cut to the chase … if in any doubt, if you are
surfing around, even if you hesitate at a small price differential,
book this place! ( I hope its off season and you get a better rate but
even in high summer, especially in high summer even .. it is worth

Case of hotel envy ever! From that bad experience on I have always
stayed at the Marmara.
Reading my other reviews – especially those of Hotels – you may gather
that I am, less than somewhat o,f a Hotel Geek – I love hotels, how
they function, the suspended reality they offer, the attention to
detail, location, feeling of belonging or aspiring of being at one or
at odds .. etc. etc.
In my, less than humble, opinion, the service model at the Marmara
Bodrum (please excuse the jargon) is as high ( if not higher) than any
Park Hyatt or Four Seasons I have stayed at. The team, exceptional
presentation, attention to detail, welcome, recognition of loyalty,
listening to needs, responding to requests is simply beyond all and
any call of duty. The huge antique door key that serves as a ring for your door key is the perfect allegory for the expanse of this hotel’s welcome.
I fear creating a precedent difficult to follow for the team of the
Marmara so I will not describe the detail the rather outlandish
service request our group of six made of them last summer ,, but let
it simply suffice as to say that our request was met in spades and
with a smile.
My ultimate star for service is awarded to Figen Ari at reception. She
is a consummate professional, pleasant and attentive and extremely
professional, she is a huge asset to the hotel.
The Marmara is larger than it feels, it seems intimate, small yet, in
truth, it has a considerable number of rooms. The corridors are spartan white and open to the breeze amd scents of the garden. Portraits of local Turks from the ordinary people of turkey to the great and the good populate the foyers per floor.
The rooms are spotless
and well appointed with great beds. I have always been fortunate
enough to have a harbour view room with a terrace with its wide
perspective on the glorious town and harbour. The amenities in the
bathroom are excellent (even if Molton Brown seems a bit outdated
these days). The only thing that seems out of sync with the quality
level of the rest of the room is the fact that the shower is not free
standing and that the bath is Fiberglas and a little bouncy under
A selection of flesh and dried fruits and nuts welcome you on each
stay. Turn down service is completed with traditional locum ( Turkish
delight ) on the pillow (though this had been presented in a much more
beautiful luxurious little box than the current paper container).
We tried massages in the Spa and used the Gym and were very happy with the quqlity.
Drinks on the terrace of the Marmara on a summer’s evening, the great
vista of Bodrum opening out before you, are a joy …. even if a
rather expensive one. Drinks might be a little less costly and
certainly wine at the restaurant – even the delicious local whites –
should be much less costly to encourage more residents to stay for
dinner. Food is good if a little complicated and fussy yet the view
completes the package wonderfully. Breakfast is truly chic and superb
and presented in a most beautiful manner .. I found it the highlight.
On my most recent visit this July i was greatly saddened to learn of
the death, earlier in the summer, of Nino, the expertly flamboyant and
everly and attentively gifted elderly guest relations host. He had
regaled us with his life-stories of Paris, Italy and further abroad
and proved a deft cultural interpreter between his guests and local
culture, he heightened the spirits and the perspective of the place.
His loss is great and he is a difficult act to follow. For a while
this summer these shoes had been filed by a handsome and affable young
and discreet man called Kingsly and, in the fact that he has the
opposite temperament to Nino had, he was the perfect successor, not
there to replace but to compliment and bring guest relations bang up
to date.
The grounds of the Marmara are not only immaculately maintained they
are beautiful. Luxuriant vegetation is preened, coaxed and crafted to
compliment the heavy stone and architecture. The secret is that there
are two swimming pools – the more social and lounge bar-esque pool at
the bar and a more quiet and stern, serious business, deeper lengths
pool by the tennis court. I found the music around the pool at the bar
unfortunate in the afternoon, too loud, too cliche, silence would be
better, much better. The heavy lush pink and white towels are
fantastic and it is so relaxing to take some shade lounging on the
massive cushions under a pergola (blocking out the music of course!!)
I have also stayed in winter and the indoors bar with its circular
fire is also truly great …
What would I change at the Marmara?
No music around the bar during the afternoon
