Gardens of Babylon is near the town of Turgutreis, about 30 minutes east of Bodrum. It is an extremely well done resort that reminds one of Las Vegas theme hotels. There are a number of rooms to choose from including fancy king suites which you can choose from representing Babylon, Egypt, English and others. The hotel was kind enough to upgrade us to one of these and it was fantastic. The rooms are covered in marble, decorations, there are two floors with a king bed and jacuzzi upstairs overlooking the sea. There is also a balcony or gardens outside the sliding glass doors with similar views. We had dinner at the resort and the food was good and reasonably' priced for an upscale hotel. The pool is extremely large and you can also access the beach which actually had sand unlike many others in the area. Little cabanas can be rented but were all empty at dusk so we enjoyed a sunset view from them. Breakfast buffet was huge with dozens of choices of food to choose from. We did not use the spa and health center but they looked first class. You get the feeling that the resort way over-built (you can also buy timeshare units) and in the slower season they looked like they could enjoy quite a few more guests. Service was a bit spotty, where some staff tried to help you a bit too much, while at the pool they put you on towel rations which is quite silly. If they would worked a bit more on staff training and attitude they would get an even higher praise.So if you find a good price or can get an upgrade, this is a much quieter second location to consider rather than spending all your time in Bodrum itself.
