We have just returned from a weeks stay at Hermes Hotel in Armutalan which is about 10 minutes away from Marmaris. Although this hotel isn't located directly in marmaris its in its own little town with all amenities close at hand from restaurants, bars, pharmacies, supermarkets tourist shops etc etc. I want to write an honest review on the good and bad aspects of this hotel, to start with yes.. the hotel rooms are very basic, and the decor is dated, but your holiday is what YOU make it, if you are wanting to spend most of your holiday in your hotel room then yes perhaps this one isnt for you, but who would do that! The rooms were cleaned daily and we had new towels more than i can remember throughout the week. We are a young couple 22-28 who came to this hotel for a fun relaxing holiday, the poolside is lovely and the staff at this hotel are really what makes this hotel work, they work around the clock to bring fantastic entertainment and constantly make sure everyone is ok, we had all sorts of entrainment from belly dancing, to a michael jackson show and not to mention the staff break out into dance at random times throughout the night, getting everyone in the party mood and having fun. Also their barbecue night isnt to be missed!!! Its amazing. A lot of people say the staff harrass you to stay in the hotel for meals etc, i dont see the problem here, yes the staff will ask you, but if you simply say no then they will leave you to it, id rather be asked if i wanted a table than to be stood around like a lemon waiting! There are many excursions and trips you can do and i would insist you book with the excursion guy a few shops down from the hotel, rather than with your hotel rep as it will be a lot cheaper! The breakfast in the hotel could be better, its quite limited you get bread and a selection of cheeses/tomatoes and cereals. But if you really hate it you can stop into the bar down the road who do a full English breakfast for 6tl (about £2!) and its really good! All in all we had a fantastic holiday, and the lack of decor in the rooms was greatly made up by the atmosphere and general personalities of all of the staff at Heremes hotel, We would come back again for another holiday!
Thank you to all those at Hermes hotel (jj,ronaldo,ali-G etc) for a fab holiday and making us feel so welcome.
