Good Holiday With Friends
Hotel is situated close to the beach - 5 minute walk, supermarket also only 2 minutes away, small shops across the street, restaurants everywhere ... bar street is not close, so if you're looking for a party resort this is not convenient unless you catch a dolmus - the travel company across the road have free shuttles every so often. Staff are friendly but hardly talk due to the bar manager who constantly walks round the poolside, basically he's the only one who can have fun by the looks of it. Rooms are kept clean. This hotel was a nice fit for us, there were lots of families + young children but we didn't mind this. Also Marmaris is a popular resort for the Dutch, alot of european music to go with. If you want to do activities don't got through your rep as they are way more expensive, I suggest the travel companies across the road, so much cheaper for the exact same thing! If you want entertainment then you don't need to look far - this hotel provides some but if you walk along the beach front near enough every place has something going on every evening!

Location fantastic close to all amenities, beach 4 min walk,dolmushe bus outside establishment,and supermarket 5 mins away also......heaven !
The kibele is a family run buisness, and the owners interact with guests with a welcoming smile,and the staff contribute immensely,they can't do enough for you,and the bar manager yousef and co workers lighten the mood and actually bring people together hence we met some lovely people whom we had a laugh with,Andy and the lads in the restaurant serve fabulous food to die for I recommend the steak,and they also take time out to make everybody feel welcomed. The cleaning ladies are lovely also,they clean your apartment everyday,to a high. standard ! can't wait to see you all again 2013 for another fun filled holiday!,

Kibele is Ace
Kibele is a really good hotel, they cant do enough for you everyone is really helpful. We had a drunken accident on the holiday and the hotel and thomas cook could not have been more helpful. Marmaris is great lots to do but be careful not have an accident when drunk as you have to pay for treatment and travel insurance doesnt cover you if you have had a drink (as we found out!) so you will have to pay ALOT for basic treatment. Would go to the kibele and marmaris again and would definately book with thomas cook.

First time in Marmaris
Flights were daytime flights from Bristol, and were on time both ways.
We chose “your seat your choice” which means we did not have to join the rush to book in which is especially useful for the return flight. We made the mistake of staying with the 15kg baggage allowance which was just about spot on going but mysteriously both bags were 16kg on return despite nothing else added. This resulted in an excess payment.
Marmaris airport is very expensive, you have been warned!
On arrival at Marmaris airport, our bags were quickly unloaded and we were soon on the transfer coach. On the way there isa seemingly obligatory “comfort break”
On arrival at Kibele Apartments we were soon shown to our room, which being a studio for 2 was on the top floor. We like being high up but if you have walking difficulties you may find the stairs a problem. Our room was a reasonable size with a view of the pool area from a good sized balcony. Air con is free but you need to ask for a remote control at reception. The room itself could have done with a bit of maintenance and had a bit of a “run down” feel to it.
The location of the apartments means there is only a short walk to the beach. You do have to cross a reasonably busy road, but this was not too much of an issue.
Facilities at the apartments were excellent. The pool bar serves a selection of breakfasts in the morning and snacks throughout the day. They also have draft beer which I prefer over the bottled variety, and prices are reasonable. There is also a restaurant at the Kibele also reasonably priced with excellent food, also if you are staying at the Kibele you qualify for a 10% discount.
One of the biggest plus points of these apartments are the staff. Both the pool bar manager and the restaurant manager went out of there way to make our stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible, so many thanks to them.
Marmaris itself is very much a tourist destination but thankfully for us the apartments were near to the quieter end of the beach but if it is a busier/noisier night life you are looking for, then just stroll along the promenade and you will soon get to it. Marmaris has all the things you would expect from this sort of holiday, water sports, markets (remember to bargain the price down), an interesting “old town” area and a small castle which is well worth a visit, it has good views of the town (go early).
We are much seasoned travellers but this was our first time in Turkey and was very pleasantly surprised. Would we return to Marmaris? Yes. Would we stay at the Kibele again? Yes. Would we go with Thomas Cook? Yes but go for the extra baggage allowance.
The one thing I would warn against is the Thomas Cook website. I might just be unlucky, but I have booked a number of Thomas Cook holidays (well that must say something) but each time the website has malfunctioned in some way and you can spent a good deal of time on hold on the phone while you try to sort it out.
