The Maxwell Holiday Club is tastefully decorated and great for guests looking for a relaxing holiday. For sun worshippers the pool is a pleasant place to catch some rays and there is a separate pool for the little ones. Catch up on the news back home in the internet café, before enjoying an evening meal at the Maxwell's buffet restaurant. In an excellent location, 460m to the centre of Marmaris. A wider choice of bars and restaurants are available 1km away and the beach is 500m away.

There was 12 off us that stayed here on the 9th july 2010, none off us wud go bck, they were very unfriendly, u weren't allowed 2 sneeze u were getting warnings, the desk staff were un helpful and 2 top all that 1 of the workers which may i add is still working there, pulled a knife on most off the boys was going 2 stab 1 off them.

The manager told us he was sacked but r friends r just bck frum turkey an he is still working as if nothing happened.

Most of all the people on holiday we met say they wud never go bck 2 here either, there was a lot off kids an people about wen he pulled the knife an may i add again it was a very big knife, so if any1 reading this i wud think twice about staying here, especially if u av children.

To me you get what you paid for. The hotel was fine standard accomodation, cleaners were great, bedding and towels changed twice a week. Reception are a bit arrogant but you dont really have that much to do with them.

Bar and resturant staff where lovely , friendly, fun and will do anything for you especially paddy and salim. The air con is £42 aweek but you do need it, the safe deposit box is £30.

The pool does get dirty quick and thats cos of sun tan lotion so use the shower next to the pool before getting in.

All in all had a great holiday my 2 teenage age where fussed over where ever they went which was very flattering. Also recommend bar street expensive though.

Have fun and remember a holiday is what you make of it .

Just returned from a week at the Maxwell Holiday Club and what a dissapointment! The cleaners come once a day to empty the bins and poke round your belongings and certainly never sweep or mop the floors. There is mould on the bedroom walls, shower curtains and bathroom floor - i assume they know this as there is a sign asking guests not to throw towels on the floor! The shower has no pressure and the water fluctuates between being scalding hot to freezing cold!

The air con costs £42 a week and only works intermittently, frequently throws water over the beds and turns itself off whenever it wants. The reception staff speak very poor english and pretend they do not understand whenever you try to complain about anything. The electricity was on and off all the time, curtain rails fell down when we closed curtains, double beds only had single sheets on them, the balcony was full of leaves and rubbish and the gridded area around the pool (for overspill) was so old it broke if stepped on leaving big exposed holes.

Every guest we spoke to had a complaint about something and mainly it was the cleanliness. The hotel is described as a family hotel but was mainly occupied by groups of rowdy teenagers that kept everyone awake until 4am and then the pool attendant started noisily opening up the sunloungers at 6.45am so we hardly got any sleep at all - must have been a nightmare for any families with young children!

We came back exhausted rather than refreshed and couldnt wait to return to the clenliiness of our own home! I wouldnt let my dog sleep there! Avoid, Avoid, Avoid!!!

Just come back from a week staying at the Maxwell Holiday club apartments in Marmaris. We arrived about 8p.m. at night and at first we were put in a very dark room facing the side of the hotel and it was very dismal, they said they would move us the next day and they did, to a lovely bright room overlooking the pool.

Rooms were clean and the staff were good. Only down point was that the swimming pool has no shallow end for young children, but it seems most pools are like that in marmaris.

Entertainment at the hotel was quite good, and the food was good.
I would definately go back to this hotel again.

We stayed in the Maxwell in May 2009, it was are 1st time at the Maxwell and we will be going again as soon as possible, hopefully July and September. It was basic accomadation that we were in but it was more than we needed as you are not in the room only to sleep and cange.

We really enjoyed the turkish massages we had,the staff john and ponytail man were brill,also got a good hair cut cheaper than asda from Danny thanks from Andrew and Adam.

The bar staff were absolutely fantastic nothing was to much trouble for them hello Lucas Tuna Emre Ozzy.

The reception staff were very good esp TJ, the chamber satff were excellent there was flowers in the room daily from all the staff.

All we ask is that the owners and the managment start doing half board and full board asap.

Thanks for a fab holiday see you all again soon
love and best wishes Julie Andrew Adam

We have been to Marmaris six times but this was our first visit to the Maxwell Club and it will certainly be our last because the rooms are tiny for four people and there was only one wardrobe for all our clothes. The balcony was the size of a postage stamp. The staff at reception were very friendly but the pool waiters were very rude and unfriendly apart from Tunafish. Far too much dutch people at these apartmens who think they can rule everything including all the sun loungers. The good thing about these apartments is the free air conditioning. Marmaris is a lovely place to visit but there are much nicer apartments than these. Very very dissappointed. (Aberdeen)

I love turkey but these appartments weren't up to much! Very basic but served us well cos we were only in the appartments to sleep! loved the free air conditioning. Pool wasnt great so we headed down 2 the beach most days which was great. The Turkish people are great and would do anything to help you! Going back to different apparments nxt year. (Holywood)

I have been going to the Maxwell for a number of years now, I am going again in June 2006 and I think it is great, it is in a very good position to every where you mite want to go! There is only a couple of down sides to the place which are as everyone says is the lack of sun beds!

Well in fact it is not a lack it is the sun only says on one place all day and the rest go in to the shade! And there are a lot of young Dutch groups which are quite lively! You will find most people from the UK who stay are families! All the staff are very good and will do anything to help! I would recommend this hotel to anybody!

Except people who are looking for a quiet hotel because it is a place based on fun! And if you do go you will find most people have stayed there more than once! Have a great holiday! p.s a Turkish bath is a must! (Croydon)

If you don't mind being bombarded with bombastic, ignorant and totally selfish dutch people then you will love this hotel.

Personally I don't want to be in a hotel which is overrun with obnoxious groups of dutch 'boys' on a lads holiday.

They completely overtook the pool the first week we were there - I had a few choice words with two lads who decided to go down the waterslide together on a lilo and landed on my daughters head - they thought it was highly hilarious needless to say I did not.

They also found it necessary to stomp around the marble stairways and slamming doors at all hours of the night. On more than one occasion I had to go out at 3 or 4 in the morning and tell them to shut up - I even spoke to their rep!

The hotel itself is basic by normal standards - we had a studio room which had three beds but the room was quite large. We had 2 balconies, a small kitchenette with 2 electric rings, fridge/freezer and a kettle.

One good thing about this hotel is the fact they have free air conditioning!!!

The bathroom is compact but very nicely decorated.

The hotel is split into 6 blocks and as usual have not enough sunbeds to go round (we counted 82). Some only had the sun until 12:30 pm, others till 2:30 and the last ones only until 4:00 pm so not very well planned. With this in mind if you were not up and had your towel on a sunbed by 8:00 am you had no chance!!!

They had a helter skelter type water slide which was popular and was switched on/off according to how the staff were feeling on that day!

The bar lads were OK - there was Crazy, Tommy, Franco and William.

Beer is quite reasonably priced in the bar 3 lira for a large draught and 3½ for a bottle.

Smirnoff Ice/Bacardi Breezers were 15 lira!!!

The hotel is very well located - just up the road from Basils Bar.

All in all, we enjoyed our holiday outside this hotel. We are going back to Marmaris next year but most definately not back to this hotel.

"We have recently returned from our second visit to Marmaris. Once again the Turkish people ..."

We have recently returned from our second visit to Marmaris. Once again the Turkish people were fantastic. The Maxwell Holiday Club apartments are average to good. Whilst the apartment was small, we managed - as usual - not enough wardrobe / storage space etc. The pool area is excellent- although on the downside, during our stay, there was a large number of young girls and lads [18-25 years] from the Netherlands. They in themselves caused us no problems, but each afternoon, the pool area suddenly went from a fairly peaceful, family atmosphere, to one of an 18-30 clubs. Something to bear in mind if you have small children. Another downside to afternoons at the Maxwell, was the music from the bar changed from 'middle of the road' to 'garage / rap' etc - great if you are 18 / 25. Marmaris is a fantastic place to visit [whatever your age] - the food, the people, the trips [you must go on the Jeep Safari - best day out ever] in fact everything about Marmaris is brill. Already booked for 2004!
