We, my husband, self and two twenty-something daughters, have just returned from a week's holiday at Club Aegean and have nothing but praise for all concerned. We read some reviews on this site prior to our visit and as this was our first time in Turkey, we were a little apprehensive as to what to expect - but we needn't have worried, it was excellent, so we felt that we should redress the balance of previous reviews.
We were met at Bodrum airport and transported quickly and efficiently to the complex where, despite the fact that it was 4 o'clock on a Sunday morning, we were met by Phil, Artemis' travel rep, who showed us to our apartment and was happy to give us some tips, at our request, on shops, restaurants, transport, etc. Incidentally, Phil is on site every day, seven days a week and is a mine of information! The apartment itself was large, spacious and very clean with a rooftop terrace, the views from which were amazing.
The staff on the complex could not be faulted, especially in the bar and restaurant where they were courteous, helpful and very, very friendly (something which we encountered in all the Turkish people we were privileged to meet and all of whom greeted us like old friends!) The restaurant itself and the food were excellent and the small shop carried all the essentials (oh, that warm bread!)
Granted Club Aegean is outside the main shopping/beach area of Altinkum, but the courtesy bus calls at the complex between six and eight times a day. Indeed, we found that if we got the last bus and had a meal in town, depending on the restaurant visited, more often than not they would take you back to the complex by car at the end of the evening.
All in all, we had an excellent holiday at Club Aegean - so much so that we are returning next month!
