Wow! What an amazing holiday myself, husband and 3 boys had (age 9,7 and 3) have never been to turkey before and was a little worried about going but have totally changed my opinion! Hotel was very clean and staff attentive they were constantly cleaning all the time. Food was a bit repetitive but always a good choice and my boys are really fussy eaters and always enjoyed their meals. Drinks were fine a lot better than expected. Mini bar and toiletries were never re stocked but as soon as you rang down to reception to ask for more they were in the room within 5 minutes. Onsite doctor, nurse and translator were absolutely amazing my 3 year old was ill and I rang down to them and they were in the room in minutes (and reasonably priced) the translator was brilliant and so lovely and kind to me and my family. Pool area very slippery would recommend wearing non slip shoes around the pool areas. Pool very clean but cold at this time of year. Rooms were small but always very clean, beds were a little hard. Spa was very good Turkish bath was amazing. My treatment was cut short by 15 mins so they offered for me to go back and gave me a free bottle of tanning oil. Last but not least the entertainment staff absolutely made this holiday for us. My kids did not want to go in the kids club but they kept them very entertained around the pool areas playing a variety of games everyday. They also kept me and my husband very entertained and genuinely will be friends for life! The main reason we will go back to this hotel is because of these guys we absolutely LOVE you, role on 2019!!!!

Have just returned from 10 nights in marmaris. This was our fifth visit to Marmaris, and as a single parent I feel very safe there. The people are so friendly there and go out of their way to help you and to make your holiday enjoyable. The hotel was excellent - you felt that you didn't really need to leave hotel complex as everything was there for you to enjoy. Did several trips out and thoroughly enjoyed them all. The hotel itself was definitely worth 5 stars. The accommodation was spotless and the food was excellent - with different varieties at each meal. It was very healthy food and the puddings were to die for. I would say the amount of food available and the work that had gone into preparing it would be level to a cruise ship standard. Usually after a week on holiday I am more than ready to come home but this year, at this hotel, I did not want to leave and am already looking into booking the same for next year. I cannot speak highly enough of the Grand Ideal Premium hotel and would like to thank everybody for my lovely holiday there.. See you next year.

Been on a break to Marmaris May 2017 and being a frequent visitor to Turkey booked this hotel only because they offered interconnecting rooms for the children. Was told at the time of booking that could make use of facilities at sister hotel and its beach...not true yoh cannot use the other hotel ...Whilst the hotel is nice rooms clean staff friendly...however the food is not very good...this is a view of the many visitors i met ..not much variety for children. Ok If they love pasta and pizza for a week....entertainment very limited ok if you like bingo every nite.....the Thomas Cook rep friendly when booking exercusions but if anything goes wrong not not book the finding nemo tour as waste of time and money especially if you have children....does not seem as it is sold to you.......previously I booked exercusions from stalls and they were fab with the kids but this time round thought would give the rep a go....don't bother...better to go out of the hotel...hotel waste of time and money....same boat used on tour through rep and outside stall booking and cheaper booking from outdoors.....!

We have just come back from the grand ideal premium hotel after an amazing 2 weeks all inclusive stay. Myself and my wife stayed at this lovely hotel with our two young children (aged 18m and 4yrs) first impressions of the hotel and staff were second to none. We were welcomed by the reception and swiftly checked into our room. We didn't need to worry about lugging any bags or suitcases up to the third floor as the member of staff brought everything up in the lift and straight to our room door. ( make sure you have a little spare change for a tip! ). Our first full day was started with breakfast in the downstairs restaurant. At first we struggled to find were breakfast was as there are two restaurants in the hotel. But there are signs directing where everything is from the pool to the gym and spa! After breakfast we headed straight for the pool and soon realised how many sunbeds had already been reserved! (This was around 07:30). I would recommend that you get up early and grab a sunbed first thing in the morning before breakfast! But beware if you reserve a sunbed before 07:00 the staff in the hotel will most likely remove your towels unless you are sat on them before this time. After 07:00 you are allowed to leave your towels on your sunbeds and head for breakfast! there are signs around the pool explaining all. We found that the area next to the kids pool or next to the out door showers was perfect for us as there was plenty of room for our buggy and also plenty of shade in the afternoon when the sun moved behind us. parasols are always available to grab in the morning aswell as inflatables from the sheds! The main pool was brilliant as it was big and always clean. Only thing I will say is that the main pool is the same depth throughout, so just beaware of this if you have young children who aren't confident swimmers! however there is the kids pool which is perfect for younger children / infants to have a splash around. Every morning around 10:30 the animation team would dance on stage and walk around the pool area saying good morning to everyone. This was brillant to get everyone in a happy and delightful mood for the day's activities. There was always plenty of fun games and activities with the animation team, including darts, gymnastics, water gym and table tennis aswell as a ton of other fun games! they do encourage people to take part but they will never pressure you into doing anything you don't want to do! I took part in almost every game and activity and loved it. The animation team are the best we have ever seen! they are all very friendly and always smiling :) In particular our oldest son who has autism became very close to Ali and Uzzy as they were absolutely fantastic with the kids. These two amazing people have made our holiday an unforgettable one. We are already looking forward to coming back to this hotel and seeing Ali and Uzzy and of course the rest of the animation team. The animation team as a whole were also brilliant, even in the evening there was always plenty of fantastic shows and each performance was amazing to watch. The food as a whole was very good. There was always a good selection of snacks available between 12:00 and 16:00 and cakes and pastries! We ate a lot from the snack bar for lunch as the restaurant didn't have a wide range of food, but still served very nice meals. Evening meal was perfect as there was always plenty of choice! the only downfall is there wasn't much food choice for kids. Overall the hotel and staff were brilliant. We enjoyed the food, the pool, the lovely area and scenery around marmaris and most of all the animation team! Everything is within a short walking distance including the supermarket and pharmacy. The beach was lovely but if your expecting golden sands then don't be suprised to find its shingle/ gritty. Still a lovely beach front and scenery across the whole of marmaris! I would recommend that if your wanting a nice meal on the beachfront that you visit the Demir restaurant! it's very reasonably priced too. Also a top tip from us is to visit the sister hotel (grand ideal premium beach) which is just down the road! It was a large pool, water slides and its own private beach! all the facilities in the sister hotel will be available to u as long as your wearing your wrist band. If your wanting to book a boat trip or the water park then I would suggest that you do this from the stalls on the beach or outside of the hotel, it's much cheaper. Don't book through the hotel itself! So as a whole we have had a fantastic holiday and will 100% be going back next year! If your after a relaxed holiday in the hot sun, in a lovely location and hotel then I strongly recommend you book the grand ideal premium hotel!! :)
