This was our first trip to turkey and have just returned from a week at the Aydem. Paid £540 for two of us for a week, including luggage and transfers, bed and breakfast. The rooms are basic but clean, whatever anyone else says. Small balcony with two chairs, but not out for a party on it, so adequate to sit and gaze at the beautiful view. Only been self catering before, so first time having bed and breakfast. The turkish breakfast is basic, but plentiful, you could go up as often as you liked. Yes I would have preferred to have been able to make a cuppa in the morning, but knew from other reviews that you weren't meant to so not a problem. The hotel is very small, and basic, but the views you get are exactly the same as the people staying at the five star down the promenade. In fact, their beach was far more crowded, and some only had a jetty to lie on!! It depends on what you want from a holiday. We like somewhere clean to sleep and shower, it is more about going out and seeing the place you are staying than just sitting around a pool. The walk to town is about 20 minutes, but pleasant. There are several nice bars and restaurants in town, and plenty of shops/market to walk about. You can get the dolmus from town to Bodrum and surrounding villages, or you could hire a car. We went 24th September for a week, and it is end of season, but there were still plenty of places open. I would recommend a boat trip, very relaxing and good value.
For a relaxing week away with everything on your door step, I would recommend the Aydem.
If we went again, we would look for self catering accommodation, as there were many supermarkets with an excellent variety of foods. We can also make a nice cup of PG in the morning!! But still eat out at the excellent restaurants in town: Uncles, Cool Breeze and La Villa Mona Lisa in particular.
