We have just spent a lovely 2 weeks at the Bonjour. There were 16 of us ranging in age from 2 years to "Popsy" at 80 years old.
We had 3 apartments (2x 2 bedrooms and 1x 1 bedroom) plus 3 rooms in Bonjour on B&B basis. We also had 1 room in the Ida on B&B basis. Obviously some rooms had a better outlook than others, depending on your preferences. My daughters 1 bed apartment overlooking the main square, was really interesting looking at all the activities, however if you don't like noise from the bars etc. this would not be the room for you. The room in the Ida was a little small, but very modern in decoration and fittings, a very high standard. I would not hesitate to book a room there, as I spend very little time in the room. I am not that experienced on Turkey accommodations but we were all pleased with the standards in the Bonjour.
We ate out at lots of different restaurants in the resort, but still had 3/4 evening meals in the Bonjour. The food was excellent. We also wanted to wander out and eat elsewhere, we did not get any hassle from any staff at the Bonjour because of this. The staff including Morat, Omar, Josh, Gerry (to name a few) were all really friendly and kind. It was my daughters birthday whilst we were there and they made the table look lovely and with balloons and flowers and made the meal very special by providing a delicious cake, thanks Ferhat and team, much appreciated.
We spent one day at the beach, one at the Aqua Dream waterpark and one day on a boat trip, other than that we spent every day at the pool. We ordered our food and drinks from Nico and Jimmy (aka. Denis) and were happy with their efforts to look after us. A little more variety with the music played around the pool, would have been nice.
The lunch menu was reasonably priced and good value. Drinks although, reasonable can really push up the price of your spending, by the pool if you are not careful. It would have been great to have a "happy hour" at the pool bar, maybe from 5.30-6.30, as I do like an early evening cocktail before getting changed for dinner. This is something we have had in Turkey before and seems popular.
The ladies who cleaned the rooms, did a great job and worked so hard in the heat, to keep everything looking clean and tidy. I really wished I could speak Turkish, as they were very kind to our two little grandsons, but we could not communicate our appreciation, to them.
The location is excellent on the newly refurbished main square, with great views of the pine clad hills.
All in all, we had a great time and would like to thank all at the Bonjour for making our holiday special
