Better than expected
First time in Turkey, didn't really know what to expect , but had an excellent holiday.
Hotel v.clean, staff (and locals) friendly, food v.good with enough variety for veggies, average sized room with reasonably comfortable beds. Decent pool. About 15-20 mins walk to the beach - transport available. You'll soon get used to the early morning wake up call from the local mosque. Forgettable in-house entertainment - maybe because it was early season. Never-the-less a good v.f.m. holiday.
Would we go back? a very definite Yes!

Fantastic holiday in Marmaris Turkey, looking forward to next year!
We had a fantastic holiday in Marmaris Turkey, staying at the Epic Hotel, the staff couldnt do enough for you, they were always friendly, laughing and joking with you! The food was excellent with a large variety of choice, all self service which is fantastic when you have a child that is very fussy, (she always found something to eat though). The room we stayed in was a 2 bedroom family room, big enough for us all! Nice and clean with loads of space and the added bonus of a fridge!! The outside area around the pool was always clean and tidy the staff always picking up any straying rubbish! A fantastic holiday had by all, we are looking forward to going back next year to have another fantastic holiday!

Good time in Marmaris
Stayed at the Epic Hotel in Marmaris from 10/9 to 20/9/12. The hotel was nice and the staff were always helpful and well mannered. The food was quite average but we never went hungry. A lot of people were complaining about the food but it was like they expected English food and weren't taking into account that they were in a foreign country. The juice machine in the dining room needs sorting as we only got juice on a couple of mornings.The dining room and bar-staff were very attentive. The entertainment was average but adequate. The pool-side staff were also attentive and Elvis was a star. We booked our trips with Ago Travel across the street where Andy was really helpful and the trips were half the price that the rep was quoting ( for exactly the same product). We would return to the same place again in the future.

very friendly hotel. lovely stay
We stayed here for a week and loved it. Good location with a 15-20 min walk to the harbour or 1tl each on the shuttle bus. There is a very nice pool with a bar. The staff are lovely and always up for a chat, most speak very good english. Drinks fairly priced and the buffet style breakfasts and dinner are fine. Nothing amazing but plenty to choose from and a few english favourites here and there. The room was nice with a nice balcony. Only down points were the bed was a bit hard for my likingand no english tv other than news but lucky we wasnt there to sleep and watch tv lol. Shows out the front most nights which are fun. Overall a very good stay. Best bit was the staff as they are so lovely and friendly and funny!

Absolutely Fantastic Holiday
I along with 3 young female friends spent 7 nights at Epic And it was the most amazing holiday any of us have ever had! from the second we arrived until the second we left the hotel we were treated like royalty. Athough we never made breakfast apart from 1 morning and we were all on a hangover it was a good feed. Dinner was always a great variety and always something for everyone. i myself being a very fusser eater was very pleased to see that it wasnt all rubbish neither was it all Turkish cuisine. The reception staff were lovely and always on hand if we needed any help or had any problems. Sadly our shower broke and only released cold water but within 1 hour of asking for someone to fix it we had a plumber in and the shower sorted. Our room was lovely and clean and the maids always made our room up when we asked them too(hotel supplys a door hanger saying please do not disturb or please make up our room) which always came in handy when you were hungover in bed until 1pm. All of the staff around the pool were lovely and always on hand for drinks and snacks. Some even joined us in the pool for games which were put on by Katie the lovely entertainment lady. Katie was always smiling and tried her hardest to get everyone on board to join in. There is also a tatoo parlour at the side of the pool which has lovely staff aswell. There is nothing i can fault about this holiday what so ever. Even after my group receiving 2 warning for our behaviour the staff were still lovely and never treated us differently. We were even asked by reception if we would like to come back and stay later in the year which we are doing. After only 5 days of being home we were booked back up for a 14 night stay in September which we are all very excited about. We were very sad to leave The Epic by we are very excited to be heading back there in just under 8 weeks for a longer stay. We have kept in contact with everyone from the hotel and they too look forward to our return. Sadly our amazing rep has left our hotel but i am sure that our new rep will be just as helpful and just as lovely. I know for sure that i will keep returning to The Epic and i would certainly recommed it!
