We have been to Marmaris eight times and the weather has always been great, even in May I haven't seen a cloud for a fortnight!

Holiday

As always holiday was excellent, that is why we keep going back time after time.

Places Recommended

I would recommend Andy's restaurant on main road, Papillon restaurant at Tekin apartments, and Taj Mahal Indian restaurant at main square near football bars.

Went in August last year, took a short trip to icmeler on dolmus, got off and the heat just hits you, on the temperature thermometer on the chemist wall, it said 45*......now that's hot...

Holiday

Absolutely brilliant.......green nature diamond in June ,then back in August to hotel alkan....superb choices.

Places Recommended

Do the boat trips all inclusive, average price £10 or do jeep safari, or if you go into marmaris centre you can shop till you drop.

the weather was fantastic, never below 47 for the entire time we were there. very hot but if you are sensible it shouldn't pose a problem.

Holiday

our holiday was very good,we had a teenager and 2 toddlers (1 year old) with us. they coped well in the heat and the people of Marmaris were the friendliest people you could meet. very helpful indeed when it came to keeping the children amused. we will go back in a couple of years when the babies are older though as there is much to do and see that you can't with babies in tow.

Places Recommended

If staying in Armutalan then search out a Place called "Sidewalk" it is a bar with the best food and amazing staff, we spent most nights here and were made to feel like family.

I would recommend the lazy day boat trip, it has beautiful scenery and good food. we got to jump off the boat into the sea.

We visited the turkish bath, although there were (extra's) that they tried to sell you.

I would wholeheartedly recommend swimming with the dolphins, it is a little expensive but great fun.
The Men did the quad safari and jet ski's which they enjoyed.

We visited the water park and spent all day there which was great for the little ones.

Extremely warm every day, but felt cooler than when we went to Fethiye in late September last year.

Accommodation was quite basic but okay to use as a base. Central situation. Near to beach and shops and places to eat. We went self catering. Can't comment on the nightlife as we had three young children with us.

We really enjoyed the jeep safari and the boat trips.

Weather fantastic couldn't ask for better sunny all day every day.

From the very first day we was over charged in a restautant and would of happened again and again check every bill u get the dalyan boat trip is a farce the pictures u c in the brochures of the mud baths arnt wot u get they take u to newly built spa which is all directed to get money out of your pockets all trips.

Like the lazy day boat trips and jeep safaris are aimed at getting more money out of u stopping at places were there all on commission ! Lazy day boat trip is the best of the lot well worth a tenner the jeep safari is good fun but beware the jeeps are death traps they wood b crushed in a scrap yard back home they are that bad.

Absouloutely amazing,fun fun fun in the sun sun sun,weather was amazing,for the whole 2weeks,no rain no cloud,just sun, best weather was a nice sea breeze when we went on the boat trips,perfect for cooling down between dips off the boat,whilst in the sea.

Holiday

We choose self catering option,so we could leave the hotel at night explore the local,restaurants other entertainment,we loved the culture meeting real people in their natural environment,in the villages or such on inclusive excursions,which were reasonably priced at the many places to book when we arrived,much cheaper than booking through hotel reps.

We loved marmaris so much we returned the following year loved it all over again,jeep safari was defo the best laugh I've had since I was a teenager the mud baths were such a great day out,even the sulphur pools,with the pong of rotten eggs(from the pools obviously)I'd go back again,cannot fault it,the boat trips were very relaxing informative include lunch drinks in some cases,loved loved loved both times we went

Places Recommended

Mud baths,jeep safari,authentic working village,waterparks,a few boat trips,quad safari,jet skiing many of the local places to eat

The weather was absolutely perfect, everyday was a gorgeous day......

Holiday

The first time I went was a girls holiday, this is where I met my current boyfriend, since meeting him we went back the following year, and we are going back there again in a few weeks,
The reason we go is it is good value for money, definately guaranteed the weather, the people are friendly, you can have a good night out for under less than 30euros.

If you have never been you should go as you will not be disappointed. Last year we went down to Ichmeler and hired out speed boats with a couple that we met, that was amazing, got to see dolphins, the list is endless, which is why I say you need to visit......so what are you waiting for get booking!!!

Places Recommended

Ichmeler, the markets in ichmeler, Bar Street, this can be expensive, but if you stay local you can have the same sort of night with the expense.

Went to Marmaris at the start of June 2012 when we had lovely hot weather and there was never a cloudy day.

Would highly recommend to anyone and will be returning this year.

Holiday

Fantastic holiday!

We spent most of the time in the hotel as it was all inclusive but did go out for a meal one night to celebrate a birthday.

Restaurants and bars were good and some restaurants have private beaches so if you're just getting a drink you can sit on the sunbeds on the beach.

Places Recommended

I would recommend for anyone to go to Turunc.
It's a lovely small town about a 30 minute drive away from Marmaris. You can also get a boat there which takes 15 minutes. It has fantastic restaurant where we had the best meal I've ever had.
There is a small Marina area and lots of shops open until late at night.

Also, great for kids, is Aqua Dream water park which is located upon a small hill in Marmaris.
It has good steep slides, a massive pool and a wave pool.

May is lovely weather and the boat cruises are not too packed either.

Holiday

Holiday was great and right on the beach.

Hotel staff were excellent and there was plenty of entertainment good for the kids.

We stay in Icmeler which is much quieter than Marmaris but busy enough for us.

Everywhere was open and there is lots to buy but be careful as they are very strict with weights at the airport and it is expensive if your luggage is overweight.

Places Recommended

The Turkish baths are a must on the first few days you arrive to get rid of your dead skin etc.

Also, Icmeler market and dentist if you need any work done.

The weather is very good, it can get very hot you will need sun cream.

We go April/May and also September/October when the weather is better for us.

You may get a shower in April but not a lot.

Still, do not forget the sun cream you will need it or you will burn.

Holiday

We have a great time there as the people are very good and you are safe.

The food is good, you can get really anything you might want and it is all fresh.

If you want night life it is all there but if want the peace and quiet it is also there too.

Places Recommended

We stay at flora apartments as it is very nice, it has a small swimming pool and is family run.

They are nice people who make you feel very welcome.

There is a lot to do, if wanted, there are many trips at good prices.

We say check out the flora apartments for yourself and you won't go wrong. It is only a short stroll to the beach, about 10 minutes.

Weather Was Fabulous .

During the day it was just hot enough to walk about comfortably and there was a slight breeze from the sea in the evening that made it very pleasant to be strolling about the old Marmaris harbour .

Holiday

Brilliant. Went on the 3rd of May 2011. Had non stop sunshine all 14 days and evenings were great; just a nice sea breeze to keep us feeling comfortable.

Make sure you take plenty of sun lotion with you. My friend and I took two bottles and used most of them in just over a week


Brilliant beaches and scenery to die for; I am going back this May to take up some more sight seeing. I book with the tour operators once i arrive.

The tour trips are well worth the money you pay.

The boat trips have a choice of prices, one without food and drink or all inclusive.

Absolutely stunning scenery and turquoise sea. You will be enchanted by the beauty.

Truly beyond your imagination to view and photograph and its realistically priced .

Why not book your break in Turkey. Lots to do and see a beautiful place to spend your well earned break.

Ephesus is one of the best preserved ancient sights in the Western world . It is a must: you feel as if you have been transported back in time .

The sun shone the whole 7 days we where there, the temps were 40 plus so very hot, also still very warm in the evenings.

We loved every minute, the beach is beautiful, plenty of bars, clubs, places to eat and drink. The Irish bars are worth a visit, great cocktails. The people are very friendly,

Places Recommended

The shopping centre is a good place to visit, also Icemeler which you can catch a Dolibus along the main road to, just put your hand out, it takes 10 mins, the market is on a wednesday. Also try the lazy day boat trip at the harbour, good way to get a good tan.

The minimum daytime temperature was 43c and occassionally there was a stiff breeze however I was able to get out and about going on a boat trip, visiting Turunc(by Taxi boat) and Icemeler twice. The evenings were about 27C and very enjoyable especially at Yes Sir Restaurant (Armutulan) and the Taj Mahal Indian restaurants were magnificent as was the show Talk of The Town, a must for anybody going to Marmaris. A two week holiday that went far too quickly.

Holiday

Excellent but too short! The only down sides were the Epic Hotel which has gone down hill fast but was at least comfortable and a good base and the 3 hour delay to our return flight half of which was known about long before we left Marmaris but no mention made by our Thomas Cook representative which was made worse by another rep informing me that there had been at least an hours delay all summer!!! I was not amused.

Places Recommended

Turunc, Icemeler, Yes Sir Restaurant in Armutalan (opposite Epic Hotel) Taj Mahal Indian restaurant and the shops opposite but you must haggle to get good bargains as with all shops. Cigarettes and tobacco cheapest at Dalaman airport. The best boat trip I have been on for years was aboard Aquarium boat excellent facillities and thanks to Shaun for his help.

The heat was unbearable, reaching 49degrees at times. The evenings were just as bad reaching the 30's, and the humidity was draining. It was almost impossible to sunbathe as after 30mins you were roasting. It was way beyond the temps that are stated on the website, would never go there in August again!!

Holiday

It was spoilt by the fact that it was far to hot to do anything. Not even going for a walk, as I think I may have passed out!! But if you are the sort of people who can handle the hot weather and spend they're time on holiday sunbathing for a tan, then this is the place for you.

The weather was in the 30's everyday. It did try to rain on one day but we got away with it. It gets very HOT in the afternoons so make sure you cover up!! If you want a great tan, go to the beach at Icmeler and I would highly recommend for you too go on the boat ride!

Holiday

The holiday was FAB!! I went with my partner. She loved the markets. A must for all. The beach at Icmeler is better than Marmaris its self. The nightlife is excellent although the drinks are rather expensive. If you go to bar street dont go till after 10pm as thats when it comes to life.

SOOO HOT, there was a heatwave, temperatures peaked higher than 45�C (we spent the day by the pool, went into town at around 3pm and the temperature sign said 45�C, lord knows the temperature at midday!)

Holiday

There was lots to do, so hot it was hard to be outside at midday, but I loved that!! The kind of beach where the sand burns your toes and the sea is the perfect temperature, not cold but warm enough to run straight into and put your shoulders under straight away. There was lots of bars and restaurants to choose from as well. Amazing nightlife on the beach front, the hotel staff were so nice and friendly. Honestly I couldn't fault it, I had such a great time.

Places Recommended

-boat trip to turunc from the harbour -aqua park (for families) -a short ride in a taxi to the beach at iclemer (its a much nicer beach than the one at marmaris)

The weather was fantastic. Red hot from 8am till 8pm at night. Temperatures in the 50s. Maybe to hot for some but I love it hot and not a cloud in the sky and it was still hot at night.

Holiday

The holiday was very relaxing and a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I went on my own with my little boy and there was loads of travel agents offering a wide range of trips. We stayed in Armutalan, a 10 min walk from Marmaris. Its a lot quieter and I would say if you were going with children its an excellent place to go rather than the hustle and bustle of Marmaris.

Definately go for a Turkish Bath, even my 7 year old went and loved it. Also a boat trip is good to go on and go and visit Izmal.

Everything that i expected. This was our 4th time in Turkey and it always gets better. The weather is great and the people are so friendly. They make you feel so welcome. Am already looking to book for next year!!!

Places Recommended

Always try a turkish bath. My advice is have it at the start of your holiday as if you have it later on it scrubs off your tan. They are very relaxing. The night boat trips around the bay is lovely. Only costs a couple of pounds and theres drink and music/dancing. The bay looks beautiful all lit up. The markets are always a favourite...good old bartering but can get abit too much!! Captain's Bar is a great place to go and its always a must to visit on of the McDonalds!!!!
