A local bus service runs in the direction of our villa every few minutes, but the determined streak in us all meant we wanted to achieve the satisfaction of making our way back without help from public transport - perhaps not the wisest decision in the midday heat!

Historical Traveler Reviews Noa Hotel Club Nergis Beach Marmaris
Lovely Holiday, could not fault it!
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Nergis Hotel in Turkey for one week in the middle of July and had a wonderful time! Our first day there however I was a bit taken a back by the way that some of the people in the shops are so in your face, one man took a £20 Scottish note out of my hand in exchange for some perfume which shook me a bit but once you have been there a couple of days you get used to it and just learn to walk past them. It was our first time in Turkey and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was absolutely fantastic we had a brilliant meal everywhere we went and were really surprised at the service everywhere. I definitely recommened the Beef Eater restaurant had a lovely bottle of wine there! Onto the hotel...it was in the best situation you could imagine right at the top of Bar Street which we did not realise until our last 2 days is over 1 mile long! We did not venture very far as everything you needed was right by, you could practically jump into the beach! I do have to agree about the O'Yes Restaurant, lovely food but they were a bit unsociable compared to some other restaurants but not so much that I would not go back there again also there's a 10% discount so that's a bonus! Our room was nice it was standard but we were not expecting the best, our shower head used to fly around for the first day but we complained at reception went to the pool for the day and by the time we were back it was fixed in place. The maids cleaned our room every day and new sheets every 2-3 days was a lovely touch one day to come back and find she had made a heart and arrow out of towels with a picture of both of us in the middle! I recommend the local beer Effs Pills get the of bottle with a glass it tastes so much nicer! We went to the habour one day for a meal and noticed just how much we were missin there was about a mile long of other restaurants and the top end of bar street which we heard was a lot more expensive than our end as it was one of our last days we did not have enough money left but would have tried it other wise. Bar X is a good laugh only a few doors down from Hotel, cheap drinks and it gets packed inside like its own nightclub! Bad points are that the hotel does not have its own bar inside which would have been nice just to sit in and the breakfast was okay. Then again we only made it twice! They cook u bacon, omlettes etc as you want one. All in all it was a brilliant holiday and we did not realise how much we miseed the place until we got home! I would definitely recommend this hotel for a pleasant stay in Marmaris.
Loved the Hotel but big O'NO to the adjoining resturant
Just back from staying at Nergis Hotel and have to say it is a beautiful hotel. Very clean, staff friendly (when you seen them - not in your face at all). Very secure with night security men (rather dishy) at both entrances during the dark hours.... Was great right beside the beach however even if you are down at the beach at 8 am you wont get the front beds - Memhet the beach boy reserves them for the chosen few... We ended up always going to the Festa Kebab Shop right next door where we always got front beds at the water. As far the O'yes restuarant what can I say - I have been going to turkey now for over ten years and have made many friends in bars and resturants but have never ever met such a bunch of unfriendly staff, no matter when we went there was no chat. I know the mayor has introduced a no hassle rule in the resort but they took it too far. A smile would have been nice!!!!! Even as a guest at the hotel the staff are sure to have known you eventually and still would not speak. The few times we ate in it I will admit the food was lovely but I would not recommend it the staff's attitude was bad. In fairness there was one wee young bar man who smiled a lot and garden boy talked to everyone (sorry can't remember his name). Apart from that Marmaris was fantastic as ever, very hot and great nightlife - counting down now for the next visit hopefully in October....
Fab location. Hotel lovely. Great holiay.
My fiance and i spent a week at the hotel Nergis in August 2004. It was very well run with friendly staff that left you alone when you wanted to relax but helped you if you needed assistance.
The rooms are compact and basic. It is very comfortable though and everything worked which makes a nice change. Also although it is in the heart of the resort, noise was not an issue. We could relax around the pool and hotel in the day and equally enjoy a good nights sleep.
The main foyer is very smart (marble effect) and there is a glass lift which is handy when checking in/out. It is however more of a good quality 3* hotel rather than a true 4* hotel. Only because of the size of the rooms and the basic furniture. Was fine for us.
The location is fantastic. Slap bang in the middle of the promenade overlooking the beach and the sea. Beautiful view. The dining area next to the pool is a really nice touch. The pool itself is large and is well maintained. There was a bit of a rush on the sunbeds but is was August so to be expected. Even though the hotel was really busy it didnt feel packed or too noisy, crowded etc. Think it is best for couples and families looking for a quiet relaxing hotel. Not like some where there is music pumping out from 8am and the kids run around screaming. Really nice and sedate.
The hotel has a lovely lawned area adjoining its own restaurant/bar O'Yes. This was really nice to have a quiet drink/snack and watch the world go by or the sun go down in the evening.
Food & drink - We were b&b so only had breakfast included. This was a curious mix of English and Turkish. Sausages sometimes, eggs, bread, tomatoes, olives other vegetables, yoghurts, coffee, juice. Self service. Just nice and healthy. The O'yes restaurant (hotels own)was good also. Best place for a steak - Natalies. Think the standard of food in Marmaris is good; especially along the promenade as there is so much competition. I was surprised at how well they cater for children too - so cheap too. The local beer was ok , but you can still get your favourites for a bit extra of course. My top tip * avoid baileys unless you are feeling flush - cost me £14 for a double.
Out and about - You can get anything you may need from postcards, phone cards, sun lotion, a pharmacy, clothes, jewellery, gifts etc etc. a short walk away.
If the beach in Marmaris is a bit too packed - (is shingle and very narrow) hop on a dolmus or the taxi boat to nearby icmeler. (about 10-15mins)It is a touch quieter and there are more upmarket hotels with there own beaches often and less shops. Is great to sunbathe, try out various watersports on offer. The beach is much bigger. The further up the beach you go the cheaper the sunbed hire becomes. Icmeler is very pretty - good place for some holiday snaps.
There are various excursions. We went through our rep on a relaxing day on a large boat, sunbathing, touring the coastline, light lunch, anchored off and swam. Really relaxing day.
Nightlife - Whatever you fancy. Either a quiet drink at a small bar or onto the bigger and louder. Bar street is where it is loud and guarenteed to be a late night. Alot of the main clubs are there. It was a good, if expensive night in bar street.
We also went on the official Turkish night arranged through our rep which was one of the best evenings - great fun for everyone.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Marmaris. Nergis was an excellent base. It was the perfect summer holiday. The weather was fantastic. I even got a tan. (am really fair and burn normally) We relaxed alot but had a few days out and the same in the evenings. I rate it 9/10
I had never been to or fancied Turkey before.(my fiance chose the holiday). He did fantastically! I thought it may not be very clean/modern compared to other European resorts and again thought the food might not be up to much. That seems silly now. Was my favourite beach holiday ever - it has everything you could want and is up to you how active or relaxed you make it.We are going back to nergis for our honeymoon this August - can't wait.
Basic, but a great location
Just back from a week at the Nergis. Had been there 3 years ago and loved the location so much, we booked again. The rooms are really small, the furniture quite basic, but everything is kept clean. Towels are changed daily and towel creations with flowers are left on your bed.
The fridge cost around 60p a day, the safety deposit was approx £1 per day. TV was free of charge.
Breakfast has really improved in the last 3 years - warm walnut bread, feta cheese, pancakes, eggs omelettes, honey, yogurt, etc.
We opted for B&B only, as there is such a good choice of eating places nearby. The hotel restaurant O Yes is worth a visit; Natalie's is good for a steak; Treeana we found to be the best; the Indian Taj Mahal was fantastic ( especially the tandoori chicken - so cheap!)
If you go, you have to try the Turkish baths ( around £10 from your rep). Any of the boat trips from the pier in front of the hotel are great value and a good way of seeing a bit of the coastline. The markets in Icmeler and Marmaris are a must ( 5 handbags for a tenner!)
Not 4 t rating
Stayed at the selfcatering appartments in the nergis these are certainly not a 4 t rating in my opinion, as stated in the thomson book. They are very small. The pool area was alright although could be cleaner. The biggest plus point is the location. Would go back but I would go B@B as it seemed to cost around the same price as SC. Turkey was alright not as cheap as it used to be, but still good value for money.
Nergis:Good location, average accomodation
Myself and my fiance (both 25) stayed in the Nergis in September 2004 for 2 weeks, during our second visit to Marmaris.
Marmaris is a fabulous resort, hence a return visit. The resort is well placed for sightseeing, with day trips to Rhodes, a variety of boat trips to locations such as turtle beach and Cleopatra's island, visits to local villages as well as Ephesus and Pamukkale (note, the last two are very long trips - leaving about 6am and not getting home until 8pm - with the majority of time spent on a bus). A wide variety of restaurants and bars are available - making eating at the hotel every night a bit mad in my opinion.
The Nergis is on the beach, about a 15 minute stroll to the centre, along the beach past bars and restaurants. That means that the hotel is pretty much surrounded by bars, which play loud music until late at night. However, provided you aren't sleeping with windows open, the noise is not a problem. A dolmus passes the hotel, on the main road side, and is about 25p into the centre. A number of boat trips leave from a jetty just outside the hotel, which means you can walk down to the boat without having to be up early to be collected by a bus.
We stayed in a twin room, situated on the top floor at the side of the hotel, giving us a decent view of the sea and harbour. The room is the one area of the hotel that I would level criticism at. It was perfectly acceptable 3* accomodation, however, the accomodation was advertised as a four star hotel in the Airtours brouchure and did not meet the standards I would expect of a 4* hotel. The air conditioning in the room, which was included in the price, was very poorly thought out - it was directed at one bed, leaving that person freezing in order for the whole room to benefit. The bathroom was also very small, in order sit comfortably on the toilet, the shower door had to be open, otherwise you had to sit at an angle. The room was clean and the furniture was in good condition, although, again, better quality might have been expected of a 4* hotel.
Breakfast was included in the price and was very good, a wide selection of bread was provided, along with fruit, yogurt, coffee, orange juice and either fresh pancakes or omlettes made to order on alternate days. We did not eat in the hotel for other meals, however, we did use the restaurant associated with it a couple of times, O Yes, which provided italian style food (pizza, pasta and filled baguettes) through out the day.
I would highly recommend another Italian near by, Cafe Ayesha (sp?), as well as Ephesus at the harbour.
Staff in the hotel were pleasant, although we didn't have much cause to interact with them.
The pool was clean and of a reasonable size and getting sunbeds was not a problem, although it might become very busy during the summer months. The average age of the hotel was quite old as well in September, resulting in the pool not being packed with kids. The hotel also has a strip of beach with sun beds on it, however, like many beaches in Turkey, the beach is quite stoney and not for building sandcastles.
Totally loved it
We went to the Nergis in July last year and it was fantastic. If you want a brilliant location and excellent staff, then this is the place for you. We are going back to Marmaris for the third time and we were the ones that said we would never go on holiday to the same place twice!!!
We went to the hotel nergis in june 2004. It is situated slap bang in the middle of marmaris and is right on the beach. It is a busy place but not over crowded due to the size. Brilliant pool and food. Quiet during the day and great at night for all ages. The best steak house to visit is called natalies, just along the beach. For those that have been already will remember the huge bean bags, brilliant!!!!!!!!
Stopped at the Nergis Select for 2 weeks in June/July 2004. The hotel appeared to have only been opened a short while and was absolutely stunning. Rooms were excellent, the staff very helpful and friendly and the location was good, although there were no sea views from our particular room and the pool is a bit overlooked from a back street. Had the pool (and the hotel) virtually to ourselves - bliss!!! Excellent value for money at the price we paid. Highly recommended.
excellent hotel good food great location will definately visit again
