The Summer Garden is a pleasant and clean hotel in great proximity to the attractions of Bitez, a small but busy resort close to Bodrum. Main Plus points nice pool area, friendly staff and a good cleaning record. Main negatives, some rooms are simply not fit for holiday purpose, being semi-basement apts. I felt we were allowed a begrudged room change from one of these below ground rooms. The rooms we saw were fairly decorated, but general repairs etc were shoddy (eg most appeared to be unenthusiastic use of a hard as nails gun). The water was never really hot and the shower area could have been improved with just a little more effort. Pool area was quite crowded so beware. The beach is only a short hop through a path and this is where the resort shines. The beach front cafe bars encourage you to use their loafing chairs for free and are happy to wait on your food and drink needs all day. These were good value and we moved to different beach bars each day (for fun and a change!). Change you ££ notes on the front for best rates (better than UK). Eating out was fine on the front with good choices. We tended to use the more authentic restaurants behind the beach later on in the hol (eg the Pedesa) for better value and a little better care and attention.
A visit to Bodrum is a must, short dolmus trip. The castle is a good attraction and there a plenty of shops etc in an easy atmosphere and environment.
Overall a lovely break and would recommend.
