I stayed there for 7 nights. The staff was very friendly. The room was clear and practical but not so spacious. The sea is just 20 meters ahead so you can enjoy the sea whenever you like. The sea is clean and calm during my stay.
The location of the hotel is very good. You can easily go to the other parts of the city such as Bodrum, Gundoğan, Yalıkavak or you can enjoy your time in Bitez.

I have been staying in this hotel every year for the past 6 years. Just returned home after two weeks of bliss as always. The staff are the best, they can not do enough for you and they are all like family now. The new rooms are lovely and the cleaners are brilliant. I got my bed decorated with flowers, towels made into a swan and a heart. I cannot recommend this place anymore than i have in previous posts as I just love it and would not stay anywhere else. Already booked for two weeks in September, I just cannot stay away. The terrace restaurant is beautiful and the views are amazing not to mention the fabulous food and wonderful staff. Well done Manuela Hotel I love you all xxxxxx

Just returned from Manuela we intended to have 2 weeks but booked one more it was so relaxing, staff are super, clean towels, sheets, comfy bed, breakfast was so good and food in the restaurant was exactly what we wanted. The location is the best and the rooms, when you get an updated one are lovely and spotlessly clean with kettle, fridge etc rooms are gradually being refurbished so book a refurbished one. Bus to Bodrum stops ouside the hotel and there are shops and restaurants about.. Great place is the AXI - hairdresser and beauty opp. the Bitez Jeweller - it was fantastic for manicure, pedicure and facials, threading and massage - prices are amazing and this place turned our holiday into a relaxing spa treat without the spa prices. I will defo book for September.

Room Tip: make sure you are not staying in the unmodernised Moby Dick block. Security is great and rooms have...

My husband and I just got back from our stay at Manuela Hotel and we are already planning to go again.
The staff are so helpful and friendly, and also great with kids. But it's the location that was the best - it's right on the beach so you can easily wander from your room to the beach, or if you forgot something it's not a pain to go get it. There are so many different seating options too - sun chairs, sofas, under a big tree, at a bar, at a table - there are plenty of options in the sun and out of the sun.
The food was decent, and it's so pleasant to sit in the open restaurant and enjoy the view. In addition, it's not in a remote location in the middle of nowhere, so you can walk along the boardwalk and go to little shops and markets and restaurants. You can easily get there from the airport by Havas bus then a dolmus/minibus. The rooms are basic but fine - honestly, we hardly spent any time in there! They have AC and a TV if that is important for you.
My husband and I planned to go to different parts of Bodrum during our stay but we couldn't leave! We felt so relaxed and comfortable there we had no reason to go anywhere else. Even the night entertainment was satisfactory, and I didn't think it was too loud.
If you are looking for a relaxing, no-frills (this is not a luxury place - if you need that, this is not the right place for you), friendly, affordable place right on the beach and within walking distance of other places, then this is the right place for you.

We arrived at Manuela on 13th May 2014 and were allocated Room 131. The room was fine but there was standing water in the bathroom (approx.a quarter to half an inch). Reception was contacted (Ersun) and the water was mopped up and sealant put round the shower basin but within an hour it was as bad again. Ersun said that the whole shower cubicle needed replacing and he promised that it would be done the following day.
The following morning we were speaking to Kenny and mentioned the problem and his immediate response was that we should have reported it direct to him and he said that he would sort it.
We returned from the beach at approx. 5pm to be met by Kenny who said that the shower cubicle had been replaced and all was now OK. On return to the room we found it exactly as we had left it - nothing had been done. We were angry and said that we were either given another room or we were going to another hotel. We were moved to Room 124, one of the recently refurbished rooms, and this was fine.
We should not have been given Room 131 when we arrived as someone must have known that it was in no fit state for occupation and It was very disappointing that the promises made by Ersun and Kenny regarding the shower cubicle replacement were not forthcoming.
As for Kenny, for him to say that everything was OK when he obviously hadn't been to the room was beyond belief.and It didn't give us any confidence in believing anything he said in the future.
It is also worth saying that at no time did anyone apologise for the inconvenience. This is the worst example of customer service that we have ever experienced.
It really was unfortunate because, as the majority of previous reviewers have said, the hotel is really good and it will be even better when the refurbishment is finished.The hotel is on the beach, kept very clean,the staff are very friendly/helpful and it is only approx. a 2/3 minute walk to an abundance of restaurant spread out around the bay.
If only we had been given a different room at the start of our holiday then this review would have been completely positive. The hotel management have only themselves to blame!!
