Me and my boyfriend both aged 19 stayed here for 1week. The hotel is great value for money as we only paid £725 for both of us including flights. The rooms are basic with bed, wardrobe, tv, phone, bathroom, fridge and hair dryer. There is no safe in the room they are behind reception where you pay€3 per day. The rooms were cleaned everyday with fresh towels and bin emptied. Nothing was stolen from our room. Breakfast was very basic with fruits,bread,cheese,meat,cereal, pancakes, sauces such as jam,cherry, chocolate, honey, bolied eggs, fried eggs, and some hot food. The lunch and dinner were similar chicken in a sauce, chicken in breadcrumbs,potatoes all kinds, sausages, beef in sauce, salad, different pastas, and a wide variety of cakes and fruit for desert. For breakfast they only serve water, orange juice, apple juice, Turkish tea, tea, coffee and iced tea. From 10am till 11pm they serve coke, fanta, water, iced tea, effes beer, white wine, red wine and vodka. You have to pay for cocktails. The pool serves food from 10am until 5pm, you get burgers, hot dogs, chips, sandwiches and paninis. the food is not english it is based on turkish type food so dont go expecting english food. the hotel will also do you a packed lunch free of charge if your going out for the day. the entertainment team do different activities from 10am until 11pm, they do acerobics, darts, pool games, water polo, bingo, games and shows. There is also a spa within the hotel for a turkish bath it was €15 or 40 turkish lira each. after this we got half price massage which then cost us €22.5 each or 50 lira. i would recommened the turkish bath as it was a good experiance. There is lots of trips to do when you get there... Don't book with your holiday rep they are charging 100 Turkish lira, deniz who works for the entertainment team will charge 60 lira for the same boat trip. It is a lot cheaper on the beach 25lira. Gumbet beach is 10 minute walk, if you get the bus it will cost 3 Turkish lira each or €1.5 each way. Bodrums main beach is just a 10 minute bus journey which will cost you the same. There is lovely restaurants and bars just 2 minutes walk away.
Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed our holiday, we had no problems with anything. Everybody was friendly at the hotel and outside the hotel. It is great value for money at about £20 per night including all drinks and food and a place to sleep. You would pay 50 per night in London and this would not be a luxury hotel and food and drinks would not be included. I have gave the rating on how much we paid and we had a good time.
