Grand Ideal Premium Hotel

When you stay at the Grand Ideal Premium Hotel, you’re right in the heart of the action. The hotel is only metres away from the sand-and-shale beach, and is even closer to the nearest shops and restaurants. In other words, everything you need to enjoy your holiday is right on your doorstep. At the hotel, the large outdoor pool comes complete with a water slide, while there’s also a kids’ pool and a sun terrace with loungers and parasols. You’ll also be spoilt for choice for food. Visitors rave about the main buffet restaurant, but there’s also a pool bar, a snack bar, a lobby bar and a patisserie to keep your hunger at bay during the day.

Overview of Turkey

Packed with sleek marinas, miles of beach and historical relics, holidays to Turkey offer something for every type of traveller. Many holidaymakers are attracted to Turkey because of its beautiful white-sand beaches and undulating shores. However, Turkey is also home to two of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, as well as 13 Unesco World Heritage sites – so you’ll never be short of something to do. In the Dalaman region, where you’ll find the Grand Ideal Premium Hotel, you’ll find Roman ruins, ancient castles and history-laden towns. So, whether you’re looking for sun, sea or history, Turkey is the place to be.

Things to do in Turkey

Located in the popular tourist destination of Marmaris, the Grand Ideal Premium Hotel is incredibly well-placed for you to enjoy this cosmopolitan town. Marmaris is a transportation hub, nightlife centre and beach paradise all rolled into one. It can also provide you with a link to Turkey’s ancient world, and better still, it showcases the very best of Turkey’s breath-taking views. Marmaris Castle sits above the shoreline and holds a claim to fame as the location where Horatio Nelson organised an assault on the French in the 18th Century. Meanwhile, the beach has Blue Flag status, making it the perfect place to relax. Here, you can also snorkel or take water taxis to other nearby towns, such as Icmeler.


Resort Summary

The unblemished stretches of sand which make up the coastline have been accredited with Blue Flag status, while the crowning jewel of Marmaris Castle sits above the shoreline in imposing splendour. In fact, it was from here that the famous admiral Horatio Nelson organised an assault on the French at the tail-end of the 18th century, meaning there is plenty for history buffs to explore as well.

Marmaris’ strategic location on the Turkish coast makes it the ideal hub for taking a cruise or catching a ferry to locations further afield. The picturesque marina – particularly dazzling at night-time – is near some of the clearest waters you’ll ever set eyes on, making for some spectacular scuba diving and snorkelling opportunities.
