Booked a late holiday and chose this at the Travel Agents. We wanted a quiet child free (for a break) holiday to unwind. Arrived in early hours of the morning, were met at the entrance and assisted to our room. It was small with twin beds which disappointed at first but we were glad of it after the first night as we probably slept better. Very clean and friendly hotel who couldn't do enough for us when asked. Food in the hotel was excellent, breakfast simple but tasty. We ate in a couple of nights, one when we ordered a local casserole dish at lunch time. In the evening they moved a table next to the pool and served us a romantic meal.
The hotel is as described, small, quiet, friendly, clean near to the beach (3 minute walk). Beach is shingle but covered in sunbeds in front of bars that you can enjoy if you just buy a drink. The restaurant greeters wait to invite you in as you walk along the front. Felt a bit awkward at first but learned to politely decline with a smile and enjoyed a friendly exchange.
Bodrum is a 20 minute Dolmus drive away for about a pound and from there you can get a connecting Dolmus to anywhere locally. Plenty of places to explore and history to discover. Lots of shops did not seem particularly cheap but I am rubbish at haggling!
We went on excursions to Ephesus, Aqualand, and a dive trip all of which were excellent.
The staff and other residents at the hotel made the holiday, we met some fantastic, friendly people that we laughed and exchanged experiences with.
To sum up the name says it all, would recommend to anyone. Would add to non experienced travellers that Turkey is very hot in August. Air con in the room was a great help and shade available so just be careful and you will be fine!
