Basicaly it's a hotel with ONE star max. Staff consist of local young amoral people, room it was very dirty, food is very poor. Hotel has position at the middle of building sides. Two good things: hot weather and swiming pool.

After a long transfer we arrived gone 2am having booked a twin room. We were shown to our room which you couldn't swing a cat in and the beds had a 1cm gap between them. Went to reception to change rooms and the guy was very sweet and accommodating. Showed us two further rooms which were much bigger, but they hadn't been made up as the maid didn't have time, so we couldn't move until the following day. Went back to our broom cupboard and couldn't get the air con to work and as there are no phones in the rooms, we had to go back to reception to sort it out.

Following day we moved to room 206. Decent sized twin room. Had 3 single beds in there but it would be a bit cramped for 3 adults. This room is good as it pickedup the free wifi from the reception (the only place you can get it).

Bathrooms weren't very clean, our shower head didn't stay on the wall so we had to hold it, but by this point we couldn't be bothered to move again and the wifi was worth it. The decor was very tired. It's not a 4* as advertised, it's probably a British 2*.

We went just before the season started (2-6th May) so the hotel was pretty empty, which was nice. You hear everything in that hotel, so take ear plugs. It has a nice 25m pool which was the best thing about this place. Food is what you expect. Bad. but you won't starve. There are nice restaurants on the sea front a 3 minute walk away from the hotel.

We were all inclusive but after 10.30pm the bar closes and you have to pay for drinks from then on, which was a bit of a swizz.

The staff were mainly pleasant, the males tend to look at you a bit too long and girls there's one particular waiter that was a little odd. Made us feel uncomfortable and was really bloody annoying. I was pretty rude and he left me alone eventually, but my friend is nicer than me and he'd keep coming up behind her and hugging her and covering eyes and giving her flowers, even though she would continue to tell him to stop.

The bus into Bodrum stops right in front of the hotel and costs about 5 lira and takes about 30-40 minutes. Definitely go to Bodrum castle, it's beautiful and Bodrum is full of shops where you can pick up pretty good fake designer bags. Although haggle with them cos the mark up is ridiculous for a fake, I don't care if it's real leather!

If you're going to party, you'd probably want to stay in Gumbet where bar street is, but the hotel does put on a bus that leaves at 11pm and returns at 3am which will take you there if you're happy to stay for the whole time.

The beaches are stone beaches, they sift the stones out and cover them with the blackish sand, could imagine by the end of the season that the beaches wouldn't look great.

We got a last minute cheap deal and you get what you pay for. It was fine for what we wanted, 4 days away to chill out, we had amazing weather, lazed by the pool, swam in the sea (cold but in a minute you adjust and it's actually quite pleasant) and wandered around Bodrum with it's nice marina.

Room Tip: Room 206 picked up the free wifi from reception. The room we were given first on the ground floor wa...

If you want anything, you just ask for it. Very friendly, good food. Beds and service to rooms not serviced every day. No drawer space. No phone in room. Wifi only useable in certain parts of hotel. Not enough electric plugs to charge equipment. Staff very attentive. No lift. Had a great holiday in spite of negatives.

Room Tip: Please state initially if you need no stairs.

I travelled with my partner in late April/early May 2013. How this hotel gets good ratings I have no idea.
The room was dated and in need of modernisation; the bathrooms all around us had very noisy toilet cisterns. The double bed was made up with 2 single sheets spanning it, & 2 single blankets, meaning you either got tangled in the many layers or found your feet outside the covers. When we asked the Hotel's Customer Relations guy (Rus) to sort it, nothing happened. He shrugged and promised to sort it, but the problem was not rectified until we chased up reception.
The room was only serviced twice in our 6 night stay & on both occasions we had to chase up reception as our room had been missed by the cleaners even after we hung the "Please Clean" notice on the door for 2 days! It became a game, have they cleaned the room or not? Unfortunately it was mostly not.
The food was average, and never labelled so you played dinner roulette each night. This was fine for us as we have no dietry requirements except avoiding lactose, but for anyone else you would not know what you were eating, meat/veg/nuts/wheat.
The AI drinks are limited and the bar was not open very late, so we went to local bars instead some nights.
As for Maria, the photographer I was not pleased to have a massive camera lense aimed at me whilst I was relaxing poolside as this had not been mentioned at check in and my permission not gained. She will leave you alone though if you ask her, but think it's better you are asked first, rather than having to opt out. I would not return to this hotel, or recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a newer room - the old block is crumbling with green chipboard furnishings

Just returned from a few nights in Bodrum while looking for a property to buy in and around Yalikavak. We needed a cheap hotel for a few days, while looking around the web for a cheap hotel that is open in March/April in Bodrum we noticed that other than 5* hotels there are very few hotels that are open until May.

Luckily we found this little gem, at first we were concerned by how cheap it was, I mean we paid £10 each per day for All Inclusive!! Breakfast was basic but plenty of fresh bread, Jam, honey and olives. Lunch we missed as we were out all day, evening meals were ok, Rice, Chips, Sausage, Salad and a chicken dish for the 2 nights we ate in, good flavour, everything was hot and cooked well, never felt like we needed more. Drinks, plenty of the Turkish beer Efes to go around, I must have drunk £20 a day in beer alone, like the odd beer or 10!

Bedrooms as the theme continues, basic but comfortable and clean, beds were firm and we had a good nights sleep.

Did not get to try the pool as it was not that warm and rained, but the whole hotel and staff give you a welcoming feeling and make an effort to converse with you.

Overall for a short break or a week in the sun on a budget, I honestly think it cannot be beaten.
