One of the few five star hotels in Marmaris, Elegance Hotels International benefits from a very central location in Marmaris; beachfront to boot! This is a hotel best suited to couples as it's not a typical kid-friendly resort.

    Location 6.72 /10

    Elegance Hotels International is situated on the beachfront, 1.85 miles from the buzzing centre of Marmaris and 60 miles from Dalaman Airport.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    There are 193 rooms at Elegance Hotels International but there is a vast difference between room types. On one hand, the recently refurbished suites are gorgeous and chic; on the other hand the 'older' rooms are just that, looking a bit tired and dated. The latter make for 80% of accommodation at the hotel. These standard rooms feature marble-effect wallpaper, flamingo pink floral carpets and matching bed linen and curtains. Even the sofas are pink. The medium-sized bathrooms were last renovated in 2006 and those are starting to look somewhat tired too. Despite the décor, the rooms are clean and spacious. And at least there's a flat screen television.

    And then there are the suites (all 19 were renovated in 2011): these rooms are absolutely beautiful with massive king-size beds draped in luxurious linens. There's tasteful photographic art hanging on the walls, while the contemporary furniture and SIA homewares really make these rooms stand out. In the king suites, the bathroom is not huge but there is a roomy shower cubicle with rain shower head. Meanwhile the corner suites boast spacious balconies with uninterrupted sea views. We loved the novelty of the bathroom sink and vanity being separate from the (small) bathroom, and actually in the bedroom.

    Both the king and corner suites are bright, immaculate and luxurious, plus the attention to detail is impressive; nothing has been forgotten, they are like 'dream' bedrooms in a designer showroom! Tea and coffee are provided in the suites only. The corner suites feature full sea views while other rooms can only claim partial sea views.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The hotel gets off to a good start with a smart, palm-lined driveway and a high-ceilinged, spacious lobby gleaming with shiny brass fittings. However, after looking a little closer, we noticed an inconsistent look: a real mishmash (not always successful) of eclectic styles present throughout not only the lobby but the entire hotel... Meanwhile, with plenty of boutiques, waiting areas and a smart circular lobby bar, there is always something happening in this part of the hotel.

    The hotel consists of three buildings of accommodation; in some places we see Italian wallpaper in elegant colours and patterns, while in others battered leather armchairs randomly perched on a staircase landing. Again, there was an inconsistent appearance to the hotel, something which carried over to the rooms.

    Regardless, overall, the facilities are of a very good standard at Elegance; the fitness centre being the highlight. Recently refitted with brand new Technogym gear, this is probably better than your local gym! Bright and well-equipped, there's even a ladies area with pilates corner and, wait for it, power plate!

    The spa is pretty great too: eight sleek massage rooms, a solarium, vitamin bar, large Jacuzzi and relaxation lounge, all tastefully decorated under the softest of lighting. For those who fancy an alfresco massage, there are two gazebos nestled in the gardens but although they look good, they are also along a main path and near the lobby where there is lots of guest traffic.

    There are two pools on-site; a medium-sized kidney-shaped pool right by the beach, surrounded by a handful of sun loungers and contemporary outdoor furniture. There is also a long pool/beach bar and a small stage for live music and animation. However the music is not too loud unlike at other resorts. Far from the activity at the beachside pool, there is a second, larger "silent" pool with waterfall feature, and adequate sun loungers and parasols. This is definitely a quieter, more tranquil spot to sunbathe.

    For younger guests there is a small outdoor playground and small playhouse (in this area guests will find a pool table and table football game - free) and supervised mini club.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    There are several restaurants at the hotel; the main restaurant serves buffet meals in a simply decorated but bright dining room that overlooks the pool and public boardwalk. The bar by the pool also serves light meals and snacks during the daytime, with high stools set up against a long table that overlooks the boardwalk - the perfect place for people watching. The à la carte restaurant is inside the hotel and features thick columns with a black and beige leaf design, low-hanging lampshades, and elegant table settings and furniture. The restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine and is open for dinner only.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Elegance Hotels International boasts its own beach only steps from the hotel (guests cross the public promenade). With more pebbles than sand, the beach itself is quite small (approximately 20m long) and features neat rows of sun loungers (placed very close together), huge parasols and a private jetty. The latter has several sections that jut out, dotted with bean bags and mattresses. There's live music here every evening plus a daytime snack bar which morphs into an à la carte restaurant in the evenings. Watersports and boat excursions (including glass bottom boat trips) are all available but at an extra cost to the guest.

    To know

    Unlike most other hotels in the region, Elegance Hotels International is open all year round.
    During the summer season (1 April - 30 September) the hotel operates an all inclusive meal plan, but B&B at all other times.

      The Tropical Hotel is a simple but charming property on the beachfront in Marmaris. This four-star hotel is neither small nor large and has a decent array of facilities, suitable for anyone who is after a comfortable hotel in a somewhat convenient location. The hotel's last major renovation was in 2003 with the next one scheduled for 2013, one that will hopefully update and modernise its appearance and amenities.
