I visited Bodrum for the first time this August. Before that I read dozens of reviews at tripadvisor and booking.com and then I ended up with Wow.
The hotel is well located in Gumbet with the nice views over the bay. The check in was quick, but the porters are in the short supply, I had to bring my luggage to the room myself. There are lots of stairs in this hotel so be ready for some exercise! The rooms have dated decor, but are cleaned regularly and the conditioner was working. Tap water is not drinkable, but they supply minibars with water (2 bottles per room) and other drinks daily. The food is ok with the breakfast is a little bit samey after the long stay. There are four a la carte restaurants (Italian, Turkish, Mediterranean and one with the self-made barbeque) that can be visited once per week of one`s stay. The beach is half shingle and half sand so I was wearing rubber shoes while swimming. The water is crystal clear!
What I did not like in the hotel:
rooms are not soundproof, you can hear everything your neighbor is doing.
wi-fi worked only in the main lobby and occasionally on the beach, which is a good incentive to keep you out of the room)))
the beach opens officially at 8 am, however people go there and "reserve" sunbeds as early as 7 am! So, many sunbeds are occupied by the time when the beach opens and hotel staff starts giving you towels. I suggest one should bring his own towels as there is no point waiting till 8 to see that almost half of sunbeds are occupied by that time.
Overall this is a nice 4 star hotel (cant give it 5 star because of the above) that can be improved a little bit.
