This is the perfect hotel if you want to get away from it all. We arrived 1st October '12. Our room was lovely, first floor with separate living area (which was extra sleeping area for families). Many of the local restaurants were winding down so we paid the £6 per head per day for evening meal, well worth it. Buffet starter and deserts with main course chosen from an extensive menu. I counted 30 choices so no need to get bored. Staff very friendly and good service. The pool and beach were very relaxing, the only negative would be the quality of the sand which was gritty. Man of the guests had stayed before and the ones that had not said they would come again. All in all, small, basic but a little gem.
The bus stop into Bodrum is a short walk away. But the drivers go out of their way, literally to help you. On the way to the stop one day a bus pulled over asked us where we were going. He told us to get on, then made a phone call. 5mins later we came across the bus we needed parked waiting for us to catch it up. We transferred and did not have to pay the first driver! Can you imagine that happening in England.
Visit Bodrum, the castle and museum are worth it. I think you'll be glad you are staying somewhere quieter though.
