My wife and I visited this hotel in June 2009, and were pleasantly surprised; we had a terrible feeling after reading the reviews printed on internet, that we were going to a rundown horrid hotel. We were prepared to cancel our holiday until we found out that all our monies would be lost if cancelled.
My wife and I decided that if we arrived at Art Bodrum Hotel, and found it to be unsuitable to stay in, as internet reviews and photos showed , we would take further steps to be put into a Hotel that was fitting the Turkish Hotels we were used to being in.
We arrived at 4.00am and were met with a pleasant polite young man on reception, and first impressions were this was what we expect from a Hotel in Turkey, we then were taken to our room situated in the main building which once again we liked very much, nice room, clean with a good view, and as requested high up location.
Once we settled into the room and had some sleep, it did not matter that we had slept through breakfast. After showering we decided to make ourselves familiar with the hotel and have a look around, finding the restaurant, the 3 pools and liked what we were seeing. We loved our view from the balcony, and thought what has all the worry been about.
Our 1st meal was lunch and we both thought it was good, which again was worry for nothing.
We would like to mention several staff who were outstanding, Berten the front hall manager, he was very attentive and helpful, also Hamzq the restaurant Manager and his staff, Murat, Zeki and Emrah all polite and attentive, making sure the tables were cleared and drinks were served when required.
My only complaint was that the hotel did not provide a wee whisky for those of us who like one, although they did serve Gin, Vodka, Wine, and Lager.
When you are paying for all inclusive you never stop to think that Whisky is not included, it must be paid as an extra, the money is not an issue, it’s just the principle as the cost for the hotel to supply it, would not be hundreds Lira extra and it would keep a lot of guests happy.
Once again I would like to compliment management and all the staff for the service given. We, like many others read the reviews posted on internet and find them informative and useful and find it such a pity your hotel has been given such bad reports as we found quite the contrary and would visit again.
Keep up the good work.
