Reviewed June 28, 2012

Absolutely love this resort! It really is perfect!
Check in was super quick, and luggage was taken to your room. Everyone on reception was really friendly and welcoming.
The rooms were clean and comfortable. Ok, they are a little outdated, but who cares what colour the curtains are?! Because we didn't!!
The restaurants were fab! The Italian was our favourite and we made sure we went there twice. (Its one visit per week) The Turkish was ok, a little too spicy for my liking but was still nice. I can't comment on the mediterranean as we didn't try. Service was superb, and was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the main restaurant. Italian is also open during the day time, which is great! Serves fresh to order pizza, pasta etc.
The main restaurant had massive choice, and was all of excellent quality! There was different food every day, and then the usual salads, chips, pasta. At breakfast there is all the normal breakfast choices including bacon!! Omlettes & toasties made to order, and freshly squeezed orange juice.
Alcohol - all was nice and as expected. Beer was a little flat though. Bottled beer is available from the relax pool bar (we didn't know till the last day) The disco served shorts & beer. The shorts seemed to be overley strong!
All of the staff are a credit to this resort! Even the gardeners would stop what they were doing to say hello. I do however take my hat off to the Animation team! Superb! They work soooo hard, and for over 12 hours a day! They try to get you involved in the many games by the pool during the day. At night they are part of the entertainment shows too. On a Sunday it is 'quiet day' which was weird not having the animation team around, was almost too quiet! Our favourite was Mickey, who has actually only been there 4 days when we met him. Outstanding!
Other enertainment was also available at the Windmill bar which was mostly live bands, again great!
If you walk along the beach it is around a 20 min walk into Gumbet, prepared to get hassled. After a while we were used to it and knew the right things to say!
Taxi's and buses are available from literally outside the hotel.
Money wise- in the hotel & trips were priced up in Euros or English Pounds. We found this weird as we had purposley taken Turkish Lira! Even in the shops they much prefer Euro or Pound! You seem to get more for your money paying this way so please take note! Even in the airport it was Euro!

Trips -
Kos - booked with Thomas Cook. On a Katamaran go to Kos for the day. Was worth every penny of the £20 it cost us!
Market - booked with Thomas Cook - great for clothes shopping mainly. But be aware there are 4 stops before you actually get to the market!
Last Day Cruise - booked with TC - was checked into a 3 star hotel and taken out on a boat all day due to having an early morning flight we were unable to keep our room on. Would recommend! Subathing on top deck :)

Would recommend this hotel to familys, couples (young & old), and even small groups of same gender. There really is something to suit everyone!

Our 2nd visit to Turkey, wish we'd found this hotel before. the all-inclusive was first class, the hotel complex took a bit of finding your way round but after a couple of days it was really quite easy. the pool area was one of the best we've been too. Rooms and public areas were kept spotless. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Evening entertainment was some of the best we've seen in hotels and the "animation" team kept everything ticking over some of them were real characters in particular Jackson, Mickey & Ibo. Its definitley on the list for a return visit.

We went to the WOW in 2007 and returned in June 2012.
Animation team is brill and fun to watch, hotel is very clean, food is good but the hotel has not changed at all since 2007,so its in need for a refit.
The bedrooms are a little dated and not very comfortable.(in need of a refurb)
We arrived late and all was offered was soup on this all inclusive holiday,

In May we were in the Hilton Hotel Dalaman and the show that were there was the same ones we watched in the WOW,

This Hotel is good and we had a great time but would of liked a little more comfortable rooms,
A must is the BQ on beach were there was a foam party (great fun)

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times, both stays excellent! I last stayed here in May 2010 and areas Gumbet and Bodrum were being ripped down and built back up. Does anyone know if this has been completed? As there were no bars or anything open in Gumbet at the time and some were closed in Bodrum also. I want to book Wow Bodrum again for October this year, but only if there will be nightlife open outwith the hotel? Thanks x

our 4th visit to this hotel and it never ever lets us down... we arrived home this morning and were already planning our next trip back. The hotel is a beautiful on our 4th vist as it was on our 1st. The staff are so friendly and will do their utmost to assist you. The food is as good as ever - a visit to the a'la carte restaurants is a must! For us the trip is even more personal as staff remember us from our previous visits and were genuinely welcoming on our return - it almost feels like visiting old friends; roll on next year!

for those looking for a fun evening out, but not for the gumbet nightlife, try the Dream Girls show in the Cabaret Club on the main strip - a truly hilarious comedy drag show, my face still hurts from laughing so much!

Thank you all staff at WOW for such an amazing holiday and well see you again next year xx
