My husband decided he wanted to go back a second time. I was not that excited about it because when we last visited in April time it was low season and the hotel was so quiet. Well what a difference. April is not the time to go to Bodrum. We just got back and had such a fantastic time that... More

My husband and I just spent five nights at this beautiful Kempinski property. Overall, we were very happy with our stay - and we are very picky customers! I would like to give a special mention to two staff members of Barbarossa restaurant, Chef Yavuz and Hasan who prepared and served the best fish I have ever had in a... More

Spent a day here while on a cruise stop at Bodrum. So this review covers the grounds, beach, pool and restaurant, not the hotel rooms. That said, I'd bet the guest rooms are great too! This is a special property. The giant pool/s overlooks the sea and the pool deck area never feels crowded. The service at the pool was... More

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in March 2013, which is the low season in Bodrum and came to our advantage. The hotel was very quiet so the staff gave us so much attention. We got great service. First we got an upgrade and then a cake was awaiting us in the room with a bottle of... More

While I did not get to spend much time at the hotel, the experience that I did have was fantastic. I would certainly spend more time here on the next trip to the region. While some say that the hotel is spread out, I find that this is one of the beauties of the hotel. It offers all sorts of... More

The hotel is nice but very disjointed. I have never seen more sets of stairs in my life. You almost need google maps to get to the beach. The rooms are nice and spacious. Our room had a nice big balcony and a beautiful view of the bay. The breakfasts are good. We ate one night in the Asian/ Japanese... More
