“Darts and dolphins”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Just back from another fabulous fortnight in Ortakent, looked after by the happy team of barefoot Neilson kids along with the excellent team at the Seaside Hotel.
The weather was extremely windy, making for very happy windsurfers and very challenging sailing, especially for the novices among us, and the lessons although reduced in time from last year were of a high standard with plentiful kit for all.
Off the water, tennis with Roddy was great, fitness with Jojo was manic, and cycling with Jordan was fab-even in the heat.
The hotel itself is lovely- immaculate throughout, the food is fantastic with loads of fresh fruit, salads and plenty of variety. It's a shame Neilson do their club board and not just half board, but that's what they do...
Nearby, Yashi is about 10 mins walk away with a variety of shops and restaurants including the favourite Viras. Bitez is a short taxi ride away( or a hike on a bike) and has a greater variety of shops and restaurants along a pretty beachfront. Bodrum is about 40 mins by bus and a must for leather bags and other necessities. The front desk staff are fantastic with their impartial recommendations and local help. We also spent an enjoyable morning at the Hammam( Turkish bath) being painted with mud, pummelled with bubbles and massaged with oils.
The kids clubs were fantastic as ever, in fact we nearly forgot we had them with us until we got the bar bill which racked up to £750 on magnums cokes cornettos and Twixs, gullet trips, water slide parks, evening socials and diving trips. Top money saving tip- leave the kids at home! In fairness though they had a blast, our fourteen year old even looked happy as he spent a wild week with the slightly(!) mad Mikey doing all sorts of crazy watersports in the new Tag Elite. Shame they don't do a Dad Tag for the big kids!!
Our week was rounded of beautifully by the appearance of a pod of dolphins on our last day who put on a performance in front of the waterski pontoon just as the hotshots were waiting their turn.
Thanks for everything guys, you are the best, and thank you Semmi for not killing me in that Dart!

Had a great two weeks here in October 2012 - and going back again this year. Great place for an active break. Also a great place to lounge about but who wants to do that with so much on offer. It would be useful if the hotel could find a way to limit the amount of items the kids can sign for at the bar, etc.

Room Tip: All rooms are great but facing the tennis court has a good view.

Having just returned on Monday evening from a fantastic two week stay at Seaside we are looking to book again for next year.
The last time we were there was 3 years ago and since the hotel has had a refurbishment. Bedrooms are kept extremely clean and walk in shower excellent.
Everyone is extremely friendly and very helpful. Nothing ever seems too much trouble. The beach staff are excellent - it is hard to say that one was better than the other but Fathi and Semmi were always on hand to assist and give advice.
My families main activities were dingy sailing, windsurfing and tennis - coaching and instruction for all three were of a very high standard.
Food and service in restaurant at Seaside once again was fantastic and we certainly had no complaints.
Thanks also to Paddy - Guests Manager - he was always very cheerful and helpful

The happy & friendly staff at this resort go above and beyond the call of duty to make all of the guests feel very welcome, the beach team were always more than willing to encourage you to keep improving your time on the water in the vast array of toys easily available.
Sailing with your family, with dolphins around your boats, it does't get much better than this.
The kitchen staff & the food was also exceptional, we have been on other holidays with similar rival companies, the food wasn't close to the quality & variety supplied at this resort.
All members of the family had more than enough activities to have very enjoyable days, we would also like to recommend the day's beginner scuba diving, which was also an excellent day for my wife who didn't dive, however had a snorkle, lunch and sleep on a very pleasant boat for the day.
We will be back !, many thanks for the memories.

We have just returned from our first trip to the Seaside Hotel and had an excellent time. It was not our first holiday with Neilson but as windsurfers we think this is one of the best locations.
The rooms were comfortable with a good walk in shower, and beautifully cleaned. The food was good and the staff couldn't seem to do enough for you. The location of the hotel was great being a walk from restaurants and bars at neighbouring Yashi, a taxi ride to the bay of Bitez and a minibus ride to Bodrum with it's lovely marina and yacht club.
The kit was great and I tried a whole range of boards that I would never get the chance to at home, with a good range of sails already rigged. As we were signed up to a windsurfing course I didn't get chance to try all the other activities (sailing, cycling tennis, etc) but I did some great yoga sessions overlooking the beautiful bay.
We had wind everyday for the whole of our two weeks - but because there were so many other activities I don't think you'd be bored if the wind didn't blow.
We were booked on the optional Sam Ross windsurfing course and it was excellent. We were with a lovely group and everyone seemed to come on in leaps and bounds. Each session you seemed to learn two or three things you didn't know before. There was windsurfing tuition on offer if you weren't the course and I heard this was good but not as intensive.
All in all I'd recommend the Seaside for windsurfers and non windsurfers alike.

Room Tip: Try to get one overlooking the pool

Thank you Seaside Hotel and your wonderful staff. I have recently returned from my holiday at the Seaside Hotel. The holiday was made by the hotel staff who couldn,t do enough for us. The activity crew were fantastic, hard to single people out but Tess , Rach and Farty were wonderful on the watersports side and a big thanks to Roddy for putting up with me on the tennis court. The bar and restaurant staff were very professional, friendly and helpful. We met some lovely new friends who we are now keeping in touch with . I would thoroughly recommend this kind of holiday to any one.

Room Tip: Try the Lemon Tree in Bitez on one of your non inclusive evenings.
