“Club Virgin Bodrum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Great all inclusive Hotel, Superb location between Gumbet and Bodrum. Beautiful views from the hotel overlooking Bodrum Castle and Harbour. Out of the hussle and bussle of Gumbet and Bodrum but only a 15 minute walk or a taxi drive to enjoy both. Room a good decent size and very comfortable with air conditioning. Clean and Tidy with all your normal Hotel amenities. Quiet as well during the night so can get a decent nights sleep. Food is very good, readily available and plenty of options to keep everyone happy. Staff work extreme hard and make your dining very pleasant. Pool area a decent size but was a little crowded if not up early to claim a lounger but that didn't bother us as I enjoy the beach and sea more so spent everyday down there. Hotel location is amazing with its own decent size beach and a huge jetty area with loungers for relaxing and catching some rays. Plus I love the sea and was happy to dive off the jetty all day long and enjoy the free canoes and pedalos. The evenings can get a bit long if you don't keep yourself busy, but there is an entertainment package 6 nights a week, which is worth a look, plus an open air disco down at the beach bar and a lobby bar with amazing views. Really would recommend this hotel, there are quite a few Russians and Germans people about but they all want the same as you, A good holiday few laughs, drink and some relaxation. Happy Holidays

a great place to stay, food was brilliant. our room was spotless and clean towels supplied every day. the staff were lovely and always had a smile on their faces. the location was superb for both gumbet and bodrum and if you didn't mind the walk (up and down hills) then this is ideal. the only draw back to the hotel is the amount of steps inside the complex itself and if you suffer with bad legs miss it out completely. otherwise this is the ideal hotel for a relaxing holiday and no children allowed which is the bonus. me and partner would go back to this place in a heartbeat.

A group of four of us went here at beginning of May and had a great time! Amazing views from everywhere you go in this hotel. Adult only hotel= relaxing holiday! Lovely staff, although maybe too lovely with the amount of gin they give you with your tonic, we spent all day everyday being a little tipsy. Lots of steps, which helps burn off all that extra grub and booze- genius. Only problem was that our rooms obviously hadn't been used since last peak season so shower water orange for a few days,Electrics a bit tempromental, etc. All worked fine by end of our week and next people in there would had been delighted with our rooms.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have balconies, ask for one if it's important to you. If going start of season, a...

Superb place to stay,was greated by very helpful receptionists, the waiting staff were superb and very hardworking.and The animation staff Denise and Burak were very welcoming and were always keeping a smile on our faces and always made us feel part the feel good atmosphere they brought to the place.The hotel dj Emre was a not just a good dj but a good entertainer and was always making us feel involved. The food was very pleasing and would suit even the most fussy of eaters as their was a great selection, The entertainment was really good and fun. The hotels set only 15 minutes walking distance away from bodrum and gumbet which is really handy as their both good places to visit. The hotel has a brilliant swimming pool,big decking area near the sea and a small beach area. The views surrounding the hotel are beautiful onlooking bodrum and small islands around the sea. i would definitley reccomend the hotel to anyone wanting a hotel in the sun with superb facillities and friendly staff to help u enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: rooms inside the hotel would be better for elder people or people with walking disabilties as the ou...

After reading the reviews about this hotel I was very upset and desperatley wanted to cancel, but couldn't do this without losing our deposit. Myself and my partner travelled here last August (2011) and I am sooo pleased we were unable to cancel. It was out first holiday as a couple and it couldn't have been better, please don't be put off by the negative reviews!

I feel I need to leave a review to state how fantastic and stunning this place is!

We arrived in the middle of the night and were promtly checked in, given information on where to find beach towels, the pool and where to head for meals. We were also provided with a small packed lunch and drink, then taken to our room (the moment I'd been dreading).

Room

Was fantastic!!! We booked a standard room and were taken to a huge room outside of the main hotel building. We had 2 bedrooms, one with 2 single beds and another with a doublr bed, both had (very small) balconies with stunning views. We had a large bathrooms with a HUGE shower, some days our towels were not fresh but if you call upto recpetion new ones are brought immediately. We only had one tiny problem on our final day when we turned the shower on and the water came out a rusty orange colour, this only lasted about 5 minutes then was fine. I cannot describe how happy I was with our room after reading previous reviews!!!

Entertainment

The entertainment team were lovely despite the long hours the work (down in the restuarant and by the pool for 8am and out events (karaoke etc) or taking people from the hotel on nigths out in gumbet and bodrum. There are activities throughout the day on the beach and by the pool which you are asked (not pressured!!!) to join in with including water aerobics and volleyball in the pool and on the beach. The beach side bar dance plays music on an evening and some nights there is a karaoke. If you want a quiet drink the hotel terrace is ideal, the bar is well staffed and you never have to wait long to be served, the views from the terrace are stunning. When sunbathing by the pool watch out for charlie he owns a chinese in bodrum, he collects you in a taxi and take you to his restaurant after your meal he gives you time to walk around the shops then takes you back to the hotel, all for around 50 Lira however if you order a second drink you will pay double the price you would have paid, so be wary of that. The meal is lovely though and the staff will chat and tell you about their lives i and family in Turkey if you show interest. If you want a quiet walk you can go along the beach or over the hills next to the hotel entrance. We often strolled along the beach then laid on the big matress like sunbeds looking out across the sea after our evening meal.

Food

The food here was great always plenty on offer and if anything ran out it was quickly replenished, even the fussiest of eaters would find something here. The desserts are very tasty. The only problem we had was finding alcoholic drinks we liked as we were unsure what was included in the all inclusive price however the staff were very friendly and approahcable, the even suggested drinks for us after asking what we would have at home! The poolside snacks are lovely, especially the flatbreads!!! keep an eye out for the ice creams being handed out as the que gets long very quickly.

Overall we had an amazing holiday and wanted to return this year however the dates we needed were fully booked! We did find that we had paid quite a bit more than others staying at the hotel as they had done a last minute deal saving them around £300, be sure to shop around! Please don't be put off by the negaive reviews on here, people always leave a comment if they have something bad to say but rarely comment with praise! The only thing I would say is be aware of the steps if you have problems getting around (although people who have complained about this previously only have themselves to blame as a small amount of research highlights the fact there are steps!!) There is a lift but it doesn't take you right to the bottom of the steps there are around ten left to walk down. Just as a final note the views from this hotel are outstanding as the hotel is quite high up. You can see into bodrum, gumbet and for miles out to see.

Room Tip: Rooms on the same level as the pool have a bigger ouside area that looks over the beach.

I do not understand the negative reviews, my partner and I had a fantastic time at this hotel. The views were simply stunning from the hotel as it was quite high up and had spectacular views of the sea, and over to Gumbet and Bodrum. The hotel itself was brilliant and the food was fantastic! There were other guests complaining about the food by saying how there was no bacon or sausage on the breakfast menu- did not know if they understood the Turkish do not eat Pork. The pool was a lovely size and often there were activities such as aqua aerobics and volleyball in the pool. There were a lot of steps, to get down to the pool and the sea, which may be seen as a disadvantage being so high up, but me and partner did not mind at all as it provided beautiful views. We filled most our days with exursions which we sorted out with the thomson hotel rep, who was very nice. We went to the nearby turkish market, waterpark, chill out cruise, turkish bath, as well as taking the ferry over to Kos for the day and going to Dalyan for a mudbath. There are also plenty of lovely restaurants in Bodrum, so if you do fancy a change to the hotels food can always try one of the many. The staff were brilliant, all so friendly and attentive to your every need.

We thought the hotel was brilliant and we would go again.
