Great Experience Staying at Grand Ideal for 2nd Time
Grand ideal premium nice clean environment,friendly staff and the management, best quality food with so much variety/choice that you would be unable to select, we visited this hotel again in 6 months time and now again going back in 4 months. If you've got kids, it is the best hotel for you. Honestly its best value for your money.
Marmaris in a whole nice clean city, no crimes, friendly people so this hotel is ideally located in the centre, whereever you wanna go, you may go in 15 minutes walk or round the clock bus service which accepts, turkish lira, or british pound or us dollar.

Nice Hotel, Marred by Bulgarian exchange students and creepy Staff
Overall the hotel was clean and some staff were nice, The food had a huge range to suit every traveller visiting, I went 23-31st of May 2013, On arrival things looked lovely and thought this is gonna be a great hotel, This was quickly dampened by finding the maid crying in my room, followed by staff in the Cafe de Paris hiding in the back so they did not have to serve you, This carried on in the dining hall from staff asking other guests to move to make way for their hopeful big tippers, and then when we thought it couldn't possibly get any worse a huge group of Bulgarian exchange students arrived, all inclusive + young exchange students = disaster, They were drunk 24/7 putting drinks in pool, along with cigarette butts, fighting, swearing and being really rude with no respect for other guests, they partied all night knocking on doors, playing loud music throughout the night then drinking more by day, On complaining we seemed to be classed as trouble makers by the hotel so the stay did not get any better, After complaining to our resort rep about the safety issues we were told nothing could be done, this happens every year and the first wave of over 3000 students are the worst, Little comfort when your there for a week and 4 days of that are spent on edge awaiting trouble to erupt, and if that wasn't bad enough the entertainment team decided to have a waterpolo match UK v Bulgaria with tempers running high you can imagine the outcome. If your travelling with young girls make sure they are not left alone as the bar staff have some blinding chat up lines to try and get them to have a walk along the beach.

Good in parts
Top floor rooms VERY small. Huge variety of food, but not much for the English palate. NO bacon for breakfast at all. Most of the hot food was COLD! Not recommended for a relaxing holiday, more suitable for a young family. Very clean everywhere, but appallingly few and slow lifts. Very small drinks measures and indifferent bar staff.. Local shops seemed quite expensive, certainly compared to Spain, The Canaries etc. and the usual constant hassle from local traders. Truly awful entertainment!

Great location, good food, clean rooms, very poor entertainment
Stayed in Grand Ideal mid October. We liked the hotel, very helpful and friendly staff, food was great. We were going out every night after a few drinks at the pool bar and the entertainment we've seen during our stay was absolutely dreadful. We couldn't take it even after a few drinks.

Excellent Hotel with Great Staff
This was my first trip to Turkey and i was a little causious with a few reviews for this hotel not being great.
We checking in on the first day and the service was incredable, the staff where friendly and helpful.
We got a 5th floor room which was small but very clean, with there only being the two of us and not really spending any time in the room it was just perfect size. The room was always clean and we had a light out in the bathroom when we arrived i popped to reception to tell them and someone came to fix it straight away.
Overall we had a Fabulous stay at the Grand Ideal with entertainment every evening which was something different every night. The sttaff where great in the day around the pool playing various games keeping people occuppied. The pool was fab too with plenty of space for people to enjoy it.
I will be booking to go back in 2013!
