The lasting charm of coastal town Marmaris has had visitors coming back for generations, and hotels here are plentiful. Strategically placed on Turkey’s coast – looking out over the Aegean Sea and near the Dodecanese islands – Marmaris has a rich history, with a castle that was conquered by Alexander the Great. It’s generally the crystal blue waters that bring tourists here these days though, and hotels and resorts stretch along the waterfront for miles. There’s accommodation to suit every budget, so we put together this list of the more affordable options – bookable on Culture Trip.

1. Örsmaris Boutique Hotel, for coastal serenity

To the south of the central Marmaris hub – on a stretch of beach of its very own – this property is resort-esque, with a cluster of buildings presented around swimming pools and gardens. Two alluring pools are enveloped by sun loungers and umbrellas, with a serene backdrop of the hills to one side and lapping sea to the other. The boutique rooms and suites are bright and colourful in decor – and there’s a fantastic in-house restaurant which serves both Turkish favourites like pide and borek, as well as international plates.

2. Ketenci Hotel, for modern convenience

This smart, modern hotel is close to Marmaris town centre while being only a minute’s walk from the sandy beach – the best of both worlds. It’s a busy, friendly 56-room property with spacious, pastel interiors, and most rooms offer a balcony or terrace with a sea view. Ketenci Hotel also boasts a top-notch outdoor swimming pool with a neighbouring children’s swimming area and a poolside snack bar – surrounded by sun loungers, it’s perfect for the whole family. It’s also just a few minutes’ walk from the local bars and nightclubs, if you’ve got some partying in mind.

3. Uysal Motel, for beachfront balconies

A very sweet, cheap and cheerful motel in the heart of the beach strip in Marmaris, Uysal Motel is well located and very affordable. The simple, clean rooms have a touch of nautical decor and come with ensuite bathrooms, plus most have a balcony with excellent sea views. There are accessible rooms available on the ground floor, too, with a sea view terrace rather than a balcony – just get in touch to chat about options for your group as they’re very accommodating.

4. Öztürk Apart, for private convenience

A peaceful low-cost option, Ozturk Apart Hotel comprises well maintained, spacious, self-catering apartments – each fully equipped with kitchen facilities, ideal for those who prefer to rustle up their own meals. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the beautiful crystal waters of the bay and rolling sands of the beach, as well as being just 10 minutes away from Marmaris town centre. There’s a great swimming pool and loungers here, too – for you to enjoy with the whole family or a group of pals.

5. Begonville Hotel, for poolside relaxation

It’s also in an excellent location – just a minute’s walk to all the historical sites, including Marmaris Castle.
