I arrived at Villa Sun very early in the morning and me and my mum were to excited to go to bed so we went downstairs for a drink and get to know the owner Baz, at first he seemed really nice asking us about our lives and how many times we had been to turkey, but 23 times didn't stop him from lecturing us on marmaris and how we should be 'careful' when going out because it is a dangerous place. I have honestly been to Turkey 23 times and i am pretty sure on how safe I am and where i should and shouldn't go. We even got told to not buy alcoholic drinks from elsewhere because they all get spiked and lead to people almost coming to death from his past experiences. We were told a lot of stories about this and how his friend owns a bar and spiked his customers drinks, this put me off him straight away, how he badmouths his own friends and anyway how he has friends that take advantage of tourists. I was also unaware that Baz was Turkish and not Kurdish till he started bad-mouthing them to me and my mum, saying that they are bad people and they are all after one thing. Bearing in mind that we have a lot of Kurdish friends that he was well aware of. Even after that night, the verbal abuse continued,and i would like to say that he hates it when you go out to other places both in the day time and the night time, and even threatened to lock me and my mum out if we stay out too late and don't come back for a drink before we go to bed, this led to us sneaking both in and out at night time so that we wouldn't get moaned at for doing what we wanted on our holiday. Another thing to top it all off about him, i am 15 and obviously like any other teenager loves the attention from guys, but it was very unnerving being around him and i certainly wouldn't want to be with him alone, whenever i walked past or around him he would make this growling noise that just put you off even looking at him, let alone talking to him!
I stayed as self catering, and the rooms weren't too bad, you got a kettle, a 2 ring hob, a microwave, saucepans and cutlery. The only thing that i wasn't impressed about was that there wasn't a toaster so i was unable to make my own breakfast in the mornings so i went out which yet again did not make Baz very happy. The rooms were very cold and I wasn't the only person complaining about the temperature of the rooms, due to the coldness of the room, the solar powering of the hotel (which we never got told about) led to no hot water at all, so ice cold showers were the highlights of my afternoons! And Baz wouldn't pay out for heating so we had warm rooms and hot water. Another thing that i wasn't to happy with was the fact that i stayed for two weeks and my sheets didn't get changed once nor did my bins get emptied or new clean towels put in my room as replacements for my dirty ones. In the end, one day before i went home i managed to get some new towels by laying out my dirty ones over my sofa to show the cleaner how dirty they really were and that i was in need of replacements. Floors were cleaned every other day which was good though.
I like to go on holiday to feel relaxed and comfortable in my accommodation, but staying here made me feel on edge the whole time, i could honestly say that the worst part of my holiday was having to go back to the hotel to discover if there was any more problems going on. I would say to go here if your planning on staying at your hotel a lot, have no Kurdish friends and dont really care about your hygiene.
Get a room that will be in a position that the sun will hit it for most of the day to warm it up.
