The pearl of the Turkish Riviera, Marmaris has quickly grown from a picturesque fishing village to a popular holiday resort, charming its visitors with marvellous views of the sea and the cobbled paths of its streets. The Grand Panorama Family Suites is based on a hillside just at the edge of the town of Marmaris, offering views of both the sea and the mountains, as well as a rich choice of facilities for your comfortable stay in Turkey. Suitable for both families and couples alike, the hotel’s guest rooms are equipped with air conditioning, separate living room with satellite TV, private bathroom, balcony/terrace, telephone, and hairdryer.
You can enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel’s buffet style restaurant that offers seating both inside and outdoors, serves international cuisine, and even hosts the occasional entertainment evening. During the day you can blissfully lounge by the outdoor swimming pool, while for the children there is a separate kids’ pool with slides, a games room, a playground and an animation team who can provide for them even more entertainment throughout the day. The Grand Panorama Family Suites also has a Spa centre – the perfect place for the ones in need of some relaxation after a long day of exploring gorgeous Marmaris. You can try out a range of massages such as a Thai massage, a hot stone massage or reflexology; depending on your skin type, there is a choice of even further face and body treatments – your holiday is the ideal time for some well-deserved pampering.
Once you are ready to leave the hotel and explore the area, you should definitely visit the old town of Marmaris and the harbour – we also suggest you try some of the vibrant cafés and charming restaurants dotted around the area. After you sample all the delicious local cuisine, you might wish to head to the gym and you are perfectly able to do so at the hotel’s fitness centre, which also has a sauna, Turkish bath, and an indoor swimming pool. With all of this to offer and more, the Grand Panorama Family Suites is the perfect choice for families and couples who are after a lively vacation in sunny Marmaris!

One of the larger holiday resorts, Marmaris is probably the most European of the Turkish resort towns on the Mediterranean coast, and a bustling cosmopolitan tourist centre in the summer months. Marmaris also marks the start of the Turquoise Coast along the Mediterranean Sea. Built around an extensive natural bay at the foot of forested mountain slopes, the town is the best base for some of the finest sailing on the Mediterranean, with a modern marina catering for private yachts and the Blue Voyage holiday cruise business. According to legend the town got its name when, not finding the castle he had commissioned on the hill to his liking, Süleyman the Magnificent muttered 'Mimari as' ('Hang the architect!').
Holidaymakers who prefer to spend their beach time being active will be spoilt for choice at Marmaris where dozens of watersports operators service the sea front, offering everything from banana boat rides and paragliding to jet-skiing and scuba diving, all at very reasonable prices (which can usually be bargained down even more). The local Atlantis waterpark is a must for families. Those who want to sightsee or explore can choose from a variety of excursions, including guided horse safaris through the countryside or jeep safaris to visit nearby country villages, with visits to verdant untouched forests where crystal waterfalls beckon one to have a dip. The ancient site of Ephesus and the spring waters of Pamukkale are also popular outings, as are a variety of boat trips, including the nearby Greek island of Rhodes.
Whether you want to go international, or try local fare at a 'lokanta' (Turkish restaurant), Marmaris' hundreds of dining establishments will have something to suit any holidaymakers' appetite and any pocket. You'll find fish 'n chips if that's your bag, good Chinese, satisfying German or the ubiquitous Italian. Visitors should not balk at sampling Turkish delights, however, particularly popular doner kebabs and seafood meze platters.
Marmaris' wild nights are centred on Bar Street around the waterfront, packed with nearly one hundred nightclubs and bars that rock until about 4am, attracting hundreds of holidaymakers. Although the atmosphere is fun, be aware that the price of drinks in Bar Street is significantly higher than other parts of town. Many restaurants stay open all night to cater for early morning revellers.
To enjoy shopping in Marmaris, holiday visitors need to be clued up and prepared. Vendors, particularly in the bazaars, can be annoying with their touting (although this is illegal), and there are a large number of fake designer goods on sale. If you fancy a bargain-priced Rolex watch, be prepared for it to be fake, although this does not mean it is not worth buying because in Turkey fakes are good quality! Prices are very cheap, and everywhere, except in the larger stores, haggling is expected and it is possible to knock about 30 percent off the asking price. Bearing all this in mind Marmaris can be a shopper's delight, particularly for items like leather, ceramics, jewellery and carpets. Best value goods are to be found in the Carsi Market in the Ottoman Castle, where 200-odd shops and a flea market are open seven days a week. The Thursday market is a colourful experience where locals sell fruit, vegetables, fabric and clothing. Netsel Marina is a good place to find original designer clothing. 'Caam Ball', a locally-produced pine-scented honey, is a popular souvenir. Duty free goods are also on offer.
Touts for everything from restaurants to excursions and souvenir stalls can be annoying in Marmaris. Many have also reported on various tourist rip-offs, and visitors should be alert. The summer months can be incredibly crowded, swelling the town population from around 28,000 to nearly 250,000.
