After our distastrous first night in another hotel we moved to Salmakis. Our holiday from the moment we pulled up at the front was wonderful. Helpful, smiling, friendly staff from the porter, reception, pool, bar and restaurants. I feel that a special mention must be made of two staff members Ali who served us at breakfast and lunch and Emin who looked after us at dinner. Nothing was too much trouble for them.The food was delicious with plenty of variety at every mealtime. A highlight was on the Saturday night when we had fresh tuna which was huge and the staff cut a piece for you from the fish. The restaurant had great views and was spectacular in the evenings.
We had booked a triple room and the room given to us was very spacious and worked perfectly for us. The pool area is huge with plenty of sunbeds and a great kids play and pool area.
We loved the watertaxi into Bodrum.
I would most definitely go back to this resort.
Yes the resort has steps but honestly given the landscape of Turkey I think that this is something you have to accept and the hotel did have a shuttle service from reception to the beach area and vise versa should you need it.

I was at Salmakis Hotel in Bodrum in July 2013 and i stayed in the hotel for exactly 16 days. I found the hotel via internet search. Since i haven't been in Bodrum more than 10 years i wanted to be close to the city centrum of Bodrum to enjoy the night life. If you want to be close to the centrum of Bodrum and to enjoy a great view of Bodrum Harbour,i can say that its the best place to stay in. Thats why i chose this hotel for my vacation. I spent 4 days of my holiday with aunty, 4 days alone and the rest of the holiday with my Norwegian friend who has been for the first time in Bodrum. Am planning to go to Salmakis /Bodrum again because of the hospitality i had in this hotel. The most remarkable things about the hotel are its great view and its location. In a 20 min walk you are at the city centrum of Bodrum and you can take a boat taxi (6 TL/ 2,5 EUR) that goes back and fore every 5-10 min to Bodrum Harbour from the Hotel. This is a great place to enjoy a vacation in Bodrum. The hotel is clean with nice and tidy rooms. Regarding disadvantages, it has a narrow beach and a small pool. Besides, the hotel was located down a steep hill and there are a lot of stairs in the hotel; so, it is not be suitable for any one with walking disabilities or older people or small children. It was not a problem for me or for my bf but for my aunty, 73 years old. On the other hand, the only thing which did not satisfy us was the animation or the night shows as they were better for the children to keep the families inside the hotel since the animations were more focused on children rather than adults. In short, the day activities were adequate but in the evening it was rather boring if you heard about the famous night life of Bodrum outside. Above all, what deserves mostly to praise in the hotel are the hospitality that the staff showed (especially room cleaners and the restaurant staff) and the food. The food was amazingly delicious and there was enough variation. We enjoyed the meals a lot; especially, the sea foods and turkish night with speacial foods. The hotel served us with the helpful and friendly young waiters who can also speak english good enough to commuciate the foreigners in the hotel above expectations. We had the chance to get to know them better through their friendly attitudes. Thanks to the friendly and smiling staff in the main restaurant and the pool area, we felt ourselves almost at home's comfort. Therefore, i would like to thank especially to Mr. Polat Süzgün, the manager of food and Beverages. He guided us in everything we needed in the hotel or outside the hotel. I shouldn't forget to thank to his helpful and friendly staff. Thus, my speacial thanks go to Vural Yıldız, Chef of the main restaurant; Yaşar Katı, Ramazan Karakurt, Ömer Faruk Subaşı, Mehmet Ali Özcan and Emin Sola....and,.many other names to list here. They all spoiled us in every terms during our stay in the hotel...Thanks to all, we left the hotel with good memories

This hotel is the best I've ever stayed in. I have stayed in many hotels over the years and this is one of the best. The service was excellent, the staff were outstanding and the food was amazingly delicious. The hotel was Klein and tidy but was down a steep hill not a problem tho as you are out of the way but you have a beech and there is a little boat that goes back and fore every 5-10 minutes to Bodrum Harbour. The hotel would NOT be suitable for any one with walking disabilities or wheelchairs as there are a lot of steps thought the hotel.

Last week we stayed at the hotel for 11 days. The food is good and there is enough variation. Especially the desserts look and taste very good. This hotel gave us the most helpful and friendly waiters we had in years! Special thanks goes to Irfan in the main restaurant for treating us like royals.
The hotel is very good situated. In a 20-minute-walk you are at the city centrum of Bodrum or you can take a boat taxi (6 TL/ 2.4 euro) who brings you to the centre in 5 minutes.
There are a lot of stairs in the hotel. This wasn't a problem for us, but it could be one for older people and small children.
Another advantage is the beautiful view on the bay and the centre of Bodrum (in the hotel).
The only thing that could not satisfy us was the animation. The day activities were OK, but in the evening it was rather boring. The animators were more focussed on guiding younger people to clubs and dancings.
