The Mars Villas are strange in that they have many of the qualities that made some of our other hotels in Turkey really awful, but our experience here was actually quite good.
There are no English speaking staff, but the elderly Turkish woman who runs it is incredibly kind and made a huge effort to provide us with a great stay. She went to extreme measures to fix a broken cable TV connection and to get us the wifi code. After we connected with her she even invited us to have a home-cooked dinner with her on our final night, which was a very special and delicious treat!
The villa itself is fairly bare bones, but is very spacious over three stories. We found that it was very large for just the two of us. The beds were not overly comfortable, and were all singles, which we weren't expecting. The shower is also very weird to operate and has poor water pressure.
All that being said, for $100 per night it did the job and the ideal location (5-10 mins to marina) made it perfect for two committed pedestrians like us.

My fiance and I stayed here at Mars Villas for a total of 10 days, and we had an amazing time. The location was perfect and kind of right in the middle of Bodrum, so we had easy walking access to both the bus depot (where the covered bazaar is) and the beaches. The place itself was very clean and we felt safe, and we had three floors and a beautiful view of Bodrum (and the castle) from the roof deck. The garden on the ground level was very charming and provided lots of shade for us. We loved everything about the place, it made our vacation that much better and we didn't have to worry about a thing!
