Just got back from a very enjoyable 1 week stay at Vira's Hotel in Ortakent.
We requested beforehand a newly refurbished room directly with the hotel, which we got on arrival. Our room was at the rear of the complex (Room 258), and of very good quality, Clean, air con included , and safety dep box in room aswell as small fridge with excellent power shower.
One small issue was that our bed was very firm .
The staff were more than helpful throughout the holiday, majority of people staying here were Turkish, breakfast was turkish style with Feta / Meats / Bread / Salad each morning, although you could have omelettes cooked on request.
Discovered after a few days that the Vira's hotel food was one of the better quality and value for money, so ate in hotel restaurant most evenings. The Buffet option for 25 Lira pp was very good value and quality.
The resort of Ortakent is very relaxed and low key, more of a quieter resort than others in bodrum area. There is a Bus Station for "Dolmus" to go to Bodrum.
Beach is shingle would recommend taking beach footwear to be worn whilst swimming, very popular with local Turkish on weekends.Free Sunbeds with hotel plenty of shades if needed. Waiter service all day, Afternoon Turkish Tea & Cakes at 4pm.
Would definately recommend this hotel for a quiet relaxing stay, standards are very good.
Could not fault our holiday other than the transfer ( A2b Transfers could not find the location of hotel ) Vicky at hotel said they could have organised transfers directly with them, which we would do next time.
