Sinem Hotel and Apartments

With a good-looking poolside bar and a near-beach location, the Sinem Hotel and Apartments is a great base for anyone looking to explore Marmaris.

There’s a pretty pool next to an al fresco dining area at the hotel, while a poolside snack bar’s garnered top reviews from guests. Next to the sunloungers, there’s a smaller splash pool for little ones, too.

If you opt for an apartment, you’ll find a kitted-out kitchenette at the ready for whipping up your own meals, but at the restaurant, buffets are laid on every morning. The staff also put on themed evenings where you can tuck into barbecued meats or Turkish food.

The poolside bar stays open after dark, so you can enjoy cocktails after dinner.

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.
