If you have been following marmarisinfo.com you are aware of the fact that the construction and renovation season is in full swing in Marmaris and Icmeler. Time to check construction sites near you and we are here to help.
New projects and roads are being built in Marmaris and Icmeler every year, and this year is not an exception. Given that Marmaris hotels are built amongst the city this is the reason we re-visit this subject again. The construction ban in Marmaris, Datca, Bodrum, Fethiye and other coastal resorts in Mugla is normally applied between May 15 and October 15 but there could be exceptions and delays.
Speaking of Marmaris, it has little to none potential for construction growth due to its landscape and location. For this reason the old are becoming the new new in Marmaris and Icmeler, rather than building new residential buildings and hotels. Marmaris hotels continue to change ownership and some undergo extensive renovation at this time of the year. During the construction season Marmaris is full with construction equipment and construction workers who are busy to complete the work. Some deadlines are met, others are not. In some cases, construction work may need to continue during the tourism season to meet deadlines or to take advantage of favorable weather conditions.
If this this should affect your holiday and you have no interest in ‘monitoring’ the progress of construction on your stay next to a building site you have every reason to demand on relocation and make a claim. Relocation is usually handled by your agency or if you booked your stay with the hotel directly the relocation is handled by the hotel. In simple words the responsibility is on those who have your money by selling you a holiday. If relocation is somehow not possible, send a written complaint within 28 days with all evidence photos and videos.
As much as it could look like an “out of our control” situation it is a rule that tour operators must tell you in advance if your hotel or a nearby hotel or office / apartment block is carrying out major works, according to the Association of British Travel Agents ( ABTA ) rules.
