Getting to Hotel Aqua
If you're looking to get to Marmaris, chances are you'll be landing at Dalaman Airport. Luckily, transfer options from here are plentiful.
You can arrange for a private transfer from Dalaman Airport to Hotel Aqua through a travel agency or transfer company. This is typically the most expensive option, but it offers the most convenience and comfort. The transfer company will pick you up from the airport and take you directly to the hotel in a private vehicle. Most first-time visitors prefer this mode of transport for its convenience and comfort.
Taxis are also readily available outside the airport terminal. It is recommended to use licensed taxis, which have a yellow plate and a taxi sign on top of the car. The journey takes around 1 hour and 20 minutes and the cost is approximately 55-65 GBP depending on the time of day.
The municipality's shuttle buses are also present at the airport. These can take you to Icmeler, and from there, it's only a short walk to Hotel Aqua. You can book your shuttle in advance through a transfer company or travel agency or can find them at the airport upon arrival. Shuttle buses are shared with other passengers, so the journey time can be longer than a private transfer, and the cost is a lot less.
