A very popular with a British clientele, the Julian Club is a modern, recently renovated resort in the heart of Marmaris. However, this comfortable four-star hotel is a longish walk to the beach but it shouldn't be a problem if you prefer to stay around the pool...

    Location 3.0 /10

    Julian Club is situated in Marmaris (just over a mile to the town centre), and about 56 miles to Dalaman Airport.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    Amongst the 289 rooms at Julian Club there are 4 categories of accommodation; standard, family, deluxe and suite rooms. The standard rooms consist of one double, two single beds or even a double and a single bed. Clean and bright, the rooms feature simple furnishings in neutral colours. Meanwhile the simple bathrooms feature both a bathtub and shower and a large marble vanity. The family rooms are standard rooms with an additional bedroom.

    The deluxe rooms and suites both sleep up to four guests. Very spacious, these open plan rooms contain a king-size bed and sofa bed in the living area. Like the standard rooms, the deluxe and suite rooms feature classic but cosy décor (creamy neutrals from the fabrics to the wallpaper). These more luxurious rooms also feature huge flat screen televisions. The spacious bathrooms are very modern with slate grey tiles and generous shower cubicle with rain shower head. Finally, the family suites are apartment-style and feature two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchenette.

    All rooms have a small balcony that claim either street or pool views, while the windows are double glazed to block out street noise. Also, all rooms come with a courtesy platter (water, tea and coffee). WIFI connection is complimentary in the suites and deluxe rooms, other rooms have free WIFI in the lobby only. Unfortunately, guests must pay 30TL (£11.45) per week to use the safety deposit box (old-fashioned and not the digital kind)

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Entrance to Julian Club is via a spacious, immaculate lobby with large windows that overlook the street. There are a total of three hotel buildings on-site with either four or five floors (all with elevator access). From the lobby, guests step into a large bar area (open-air) which also features several pool tables. A pool game costs 6.50TL (£2.50) for 30 minutes or 10TL (£3.80) for 1 hour. A number of flat screen televisions are mounted above the long, well-stocked bar which is open between 10:00am and 1:00am.

    Although the Julian Club can be described as a large hotel, it is quite compact with everything found in the one area. At the heart of the resort are two swimming pools (one with waterslides) and a kids' pool (the latter shaded under a sail). The spacious pool deck is awash in sun loungers and straw parasols, meanwhile loud music is more often than not heard in this area. The in-house animation team organises daily activities and nightly shows. Only steps away is Candy Land (at an extra cost to guests) where guests may purchase waffles, ice cream and other sweet treats. In this area is a mini-market and other typical holiday resort boutiques.

    In another corner of Julian Club is a kids' play area (no supervision) and a mini golf course (5TL, or £1.90 per person). There is a mini club at the hotel which is available in high season only, for children aged 3 - 11 years.

    There is also a decent spa facility at Julian Club; Life Spa and Wellness is modern and pleasantly decorated, and consists of a Turkish bath, steam room, sauna and four massage rooms. There is also a hairdresser on-site as well as a large fitness room with a handful of machines.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    The majority of guests stay on a half board meal plan although there are a few who opt for full board. Breakfast and dinner is served in the spacious restaurant which is located just behind Reception. Decorated in simple neautrals and mustard shades, the restaurant features curved ceilings, dining alcoves with banquette seating and large buffet areas on granite top counters. Lunch is served at the poolside snack bar (at an extra cost to half board guests and included for full board guests) with a varied menu containing sandwiches, pizzas, burgers and salads etc. Directly off the lobby is The Drunken Duck (an English style indoor pub); open between 1:00am and 3:00am, it is sound proof.

    Beach

    The public beach in Marmaris is at least a 20 minute walk from the hotel, otherwise guests can take the public bus there.
