The hotel is in a beautiful setting on Turkbuku bay. The bedrooms are large,clean and modern, the staff friendly and professional. A beautiful hotel but can get too too busy in high season, we went again in low season and it was far better, the sea area was not filled with large inflatables and hundreds of bathers, we pretty much had the place to ourselves in a comfortable way, after all we are paying!

The hotel charges around 4 times more for drinks etc so eat out, there are some lovely eateries in the smaller hotel area specialising in delicious fish, meze and cakes. The scenic bay- has restaurants and bars all the way along the shoreline and most have tables on the decks over the sea and watch the lights twinkling across the bay and enjoy spectacular sunsets over the hills.
beautiful location, but avoid the crowds!!

The Divan Hotel is a like a little piece of paradise on the Aegean Sea. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with flowering shrubs draping over the balconies. The rooms are spacious and meticulous with complimentary fresh fruit every day. But most important is the staff that tends to your every need. From Zeynep who greeted us with her warm smile on arrival, to Coskun who advised us on the sites to see, to the wonderful staff who served our delicious breakfast. They are all there to make your visit unforgetable. If you choose you can walk to a number of local restaurants along the beach which are all really good, and browse in the shops along the walkway. It's location is ideal if you just want to hang and relax or you can hop in car and go site seeing. It's perfect either way!

And once again, as every year we returned to the restaurant of Divan Bodrum Palmira. The location is great, the surroudings and the garden are absolutely well maintained.
Eating with you feet in sand on the beach is quite nice.
Unfortunately, the choice on the menu is quite restrictive and the prices are increasing from year to year.
We were six people, four adults and two kids. When I received the bill, I was seriously surprised! Even the quality of the food was acceptable, we had not aperitifs, no drinks, only two glasss of local wine during the meal, 4 starters, 6 main dishes and no deserts and we finished with nearly 900,00 Turkish Lira.
This is really far too expensive!

I have been a regular visitor to Turkbuku for 5 years , the Divan Hotel is a regular Sunday lunch stop for me , it is clean , the food is consistently good as is the attentiveness of the staff.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone it is small, the gardens are well kept the staff are all well turned out and the menu whilst limited is very well executed it is not the cheapest of places, but it is the only restaurant along the Turkbuku boardwalk whereby you know exactly what you are paying for and there is no "bill Query" at the end of the night which is refreshing.

I am now adding Wednesday's to my Sunday's so keep looking at ways of keeping the menu Interesting !

We did breakfast reservation the same day and could use both pool and beach facilities at Divan Palmira. We felt welcome from the first minute. Beautiful location, clean, peaceful beaches and very clear sea. Breakfast was a very good choice. Staff was very friendly and professional. All in all we had a wonderful day. Highly recommended. :)

It was a nice surprise.... We (me, my wife, sun and dahghter) had other hotels recommendations but we believed in what we have seen in internet, specially the valuations in Trip Advisor and other websites.

The room was very nice, bigger the average (deluxe room), the service very good also, in the breakfast, lunch and in the "deck-beach".

The amenities offered in the room and in the "beach" also make our stay more pleasant.

Congratulations to Coskun Demircan and his staff.

One point to be improved: English talking to almost everyone not only at Divan, but in the whole Bodrum area.

The Bodrum peninsula is struggling to establish itself as an all-year-round destination. Too many of its hotels are only comfortable in the summer season. No doubt that will eventually change with the coming of the Amanruya, the Kempinski and (it is rumoured) the Mandarin Oriental and the Four Seasons (on the site of the old Halicarnassus disco). In the meanwhile, one of the few cosy winter retreats is the Divan Palmira in Turkbuku. Extremely comfortable rooms, gracious service, log fires and an unexpectedly fine chef (though breakfast is a bit disappointing with too much coloured meat resembling spam). All for a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: Choose rooms closest to the sea in winter - further back in summer.
