We stayed at the Samara for nine days at the end of October prior to returning to Australia. We have travelled previously to Turkey but not the Bodrum Peninsula. The hotel and the rooms are very good and spotlessly kept. As it was the end of the season the restaurant had closed leaving only the buffet. If you could not find something you liked at the buffet then you aren't trying.
The staff were excellent. All were polite and helpful even if some had limited English. The bar men did not stint on the included alcohol.
We used the hotel as a base and travelled to different towns by Dolmus every day. It is a great peninsula and travelling with locals only added flavour. Returning in the afternoon we could still get a late lunch at the bar near the pool.
Most guests were Dutch with some French and English. There were many multi generational families and this was a perfect resort for them. Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves with most spending the day on lounges in the sun by the pool. We would return here.
