Beachfront hotel - perfect location. Cashpoints and dolmuls bus stops outside. 24 hours reception so always felt secure. 5 minutes on bus to Icmeler and 6 minutes to Marmaris Harbour but you don't even need to go far for an excellent selection of bars and restaurants.
Rooms - We were lucky to get a 5th floor room. AMAZING. Big with comfortable beds, a huge bathroom with a spacious shower and two shower heads.
Balcony was private and large, the view was amazing. To the right the sea and harbour and to the left mountains and the mosque. They were cleaned every day to a fantastic standard.
Food- We were B&B and the choice was very good. They had everything you could fancy for breakfast. Salads, bread, hot choices, pancakes, jams and spreads and lots of drinks. We had dinner one night, very reasonable and all fresh food cooked in front of you. The waiters are very polite and keep the place very clean and tidy.
Facilities - We both booked a personal Turkish bath programme at the hotel for 70TL each. We had been to a Turkish bath 2 years ago so had high expectations but this way much better you had the place to yourself and felt very relaxed.
Staff were very friendly and kind and always happy to help. On the beach the sunbeds are free and there is a waiter service from the pool bar. Food is very good there also.
A wonderful hotel, excellent location. A gentle warning. Go with Thomson not Thomas Cook. We had an uninterested, unhelpful rep who left us sitting around waiting for an hour for shuttle bus that she didn't even remember to arrange and when she was there all she did was moan about how busy she was and didn't listen to any questions we had.
The hotel is right on the promenade, a few yards to the beach (pebbly) but buy some plastic shoes at MGM round the corner for a few lira and they really help.
Breakfast was excellent. Only thing missing was obviously the bacon. Fresh eggs, omelettes, and a variety of other hot food every day. Fresh bread and fruit juices too.
Evening meal was good but got a bit repetitive the second week.
They had a lovely round pool bar where the staff couldn't do enough for you.
The rooms were very comfortable and there is a fridge with drinks in (but a bit expensive) but there was nothing to stop you stocking your own in there. Tea and coffee making facilities although they weren't replenished every day. In room safe was available for a charge but worth it for peace of mind.
Would definitely recommend this hotel, but the thing that made it for us was the staff - they couldn't do enough for you, and so friendly.
We will definitely be going back
The hotel is spotlessly clean throughout.Breakfast is
fab,and overlooking the beach and bay.One of the best
locations you can have.
All the staff are friendly, and can,t do enough to help you.And the Thomson rep the Sunrise is brilliant.
Hope .to be there in 2009

The rooms are excellant and cleaned daily to a very high standard.breakfasts are very good, everything there that you could want.the pool area was lovely and no worries about having to put you towels down early!
Always plenty of room, likewise at the beach. All the staff are very friendly and nothing too much trouble for them.
They were all brilliant with our little boy whos 6 years old.
The location is just right, just a 5 min dolmus ride from the centre of Marmaris, so a bit quieter!
Plenty of good restaurants on the doorstep and do try the weekly hotel bbq.
I've never seen so much food! All really nice. Very good value for money.
One of the best holidays we have had, superb hotel and great location. Can't wait to go back next year.

Room cleaned and linen and towels changed daily. Apparently the only hotel in Marmaris with carpets in your room. Staff and wonderful and so friendly and remember you when you visit again.
The location is beautiful overlooking the sea, there is a small bar at the back of the hotel but we found that the music stopped at about 1.00am never kept us awake and one of us is a very light sleeper.
Can't really comment on the entertainment as we went out every night but what we saw would be okay if you want a quiet evening around the pool, table were set out for dining around the fab pool area.
Would recommend for couples who want to be spoilt and we have been spoilt every time. Went to the Caribbean last year but booked straight away on our return for the Sunrise. If you want to tear yourself away from the pool the beach is just 3 steps away but if you want to swim the beach is made of sand but the initial area to entering the water is made of pebbles which do hurt you feet, but the views more than make up for this

The hotel in general was spotlessly clean. Maid service was very good and towells were changed daily.
The breakfast buffet was lovely and included freshly made omlete, pancakes and fresh melon and orange slices. There were plenty of dry fruits and honey etc. One thing I suggest is that you to take some tea bags with you so that you can make your tea just the way you drink at home (we found the hotel's tea to taste a little different from home one).
The pool area was good with enough sun-beds. The pool itself was much deeper than expected for non-swimers.
No evening entertainment was provided by hotel itself but there was a pub on the sea front next to our hotel. The down side was that the Music was very loud and could go on until 2/3 am.
The hotel is more suited to adults / couples. Not particulary for children as nothing to entertain children except a very small pool area for children.
The turkish bath was brilliant (we had it twice in the begining) and cost us

The breakfast was very good an especially the Turkish yogurt with vis,ne (can't write the right Turkish letter...) and cherries
We made strong connections with the whole staff and I'll always remember them! We will go back probably next year but we don't know if we can afford Sunrise hotel me and my dad think that it was the best vacation ever also because of all the other people we met there, on restaurant's, shop's etc. We made real friends and we still keep in touch.
There's nothing bad I can say about Marmaris and definitely not about Sunrise hotel!

We asked for a Sea View room and the first two nights we stayed at the front of the hotel where all the shops and supermarkets are, not a very nice view. We were then moved to the Sea View room which was nice but there was a pub at the back of the hotel and it was very loud and didn't finish until 3am in the morning.
I would also advised do not use the mini bar as they will try and over charge you and say you have had certain drinks when you haven't.
If you use the phone in the your hotel room and you are using the phone card that you paid for from your rep, be warned that they will try and charge you for using the phone line, we asked our rep if we have to pay for the phone line and she said no.
The guys at the pool bar are really friendly.
I would definately not go back to the Sunrise again.

We have visited Marmaris on numerous occasions and this was by far the best hotel we have stayed in. We have booked to go back again next year.
The hotel food was excellent both in choice and presentation and quality.
Pool area was always clean and you could always find a sunbed.
Every area of the hotel was immaculate.
All staff were always friendly and helpful.
