The five-star Grand Pasa (pronounced "Pasha") is a modern, all inclusive hotel set a few streets back from the beach in the heart of Marmaris, and is popular with British guests. This is a good choice for holidaymakers who want to be in a convenient spot for both the beach and the nightlife of Marmaris.
In a side street off the main thoroughfare in Marmaris, the Grand Pasa Hotel is located about five minutes walk from the waterfront. The town centre of Marmaris is 2 miles from the hotel, while Dalaman Airport is 56 miles away.
The hotel is open between the end of March and the end of October.
Guests must pay a deposit to receive pool/beach towels.
A large hotel, the Grand Pasa is a modern six-storey building. Above the lobby there are four mezzanine levels under an enormous glass atrium. The lobby provides direct access to two staircases which descend to the huge pool deck (where loud music pumps from a set of speakers). Besides a large outdoor swimming pool, there is also a second pool with three candy-coloured waterslides, a kids' pool and a heated indoor pool. On the pool deck guests will find an open-air snack bar open from 10:00am until midnight as well as a mini club in the corner (for children aged 4 - 12 years). A few activities available in this area include ping pong (free) and billiards (extra cost). Guests may also use the Internet café (5TL or £1.90 for one hour) or drop into the mini market, jewellery boutique, tattoo parlour and hairdresser (all on the ground floor). Nearby is a spacious fitness centre with lots of modern machines however there are no other sports facilities on-site. Meanwhile, the simple but spotless hotel spa features a Jacuzzi, sauna and eight massage and treatment rooms.
There are 280 rooms on five floors at the Grand Pasa Hotel, with the king suites situated on the top floor. Rooms overlook the street, the pool or the neighbouring hotels. Standard rooms at the Grand Pasa are traditional hotel rooms (cool green and dusky pink colours, nothing too bright and flashy) and feature simple wooden furnishings as well as a double and single bed. The suites meanwhile feature a spacious master bedroom and living room, with high ceilings and classic furnishings. There is also a very spacious furnished balcony and bathroom with corner Jacuzzi. Refreshments in the mini bar are included for new arrivals; afterwards, guests must pay for refills. Unfortunately, guests must pay ?2 (£1.80) per day to use the (digital) safety deposit box in the rooms.
The Grand Pasa is an all inclusive hotel. The main restaurant is large and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner (international cuisine). It is a contemporary space with red banquettes, orange voile curtains and crisp white table cloths on a mix of square and circular tables. The long buffet stations are situated in the middle of the room. Opposite the restaurant is a disco which opens every evening. An all-day snack bar is found by the pool and is open all day, a good option for lighter meals. Next door is a small à la carte restaurant which is open in the evenings only; dinner is included (once a week) but guests must reserve their table in advance. Just off the lobby is a curved wooden bar with large windows that overlook the outdoor swimming pools.
The beach can be found at the Grand Pasa's sister hotel the Pasa Beach, about a five minute walk from Grand Pasa. There are all the facilities guests could possibly need (showers, changing cabins, straw parasols, water sports - the latter at an extra cost), while the beach towels are available on a deposit system. At 100m long, the beach is not enormous, in fact it gets crowded easily. There are other private beaches on either side so it is definitely not a quiet, secluded spot.
