Just got back from a weeks stay at this hotel and we are missing it already!! we're a couple aged 21 and 23.
Well, where to start. Had an excellent flight over to Bodrum took 3hr 15min - altho a bit bumpy on the landing. Remember £10 each for visa.
The transfer time from the airport to hotel took about 1hr and 1/2 stopping off at another hotel on the way. Nice journey though and got to see lots of nice views.
On arrival to the hotel greeted with a drink and welcoming staff. Checked in and given wristbands. Bell boys took cases to the rooms, gave him a £1 tip and he was very much appreciative.
Our room was in the block just to the side near the quiet pool (i imagine it must have been two seperate hotels at one point) our room had 2 single beds which we werent expecting so the bell boy got on the phone and we were moved to a double room - he was very helpful. Lovely view of the pool and sea!!
To get a sunbed round the main pool we found we had to be up at 7.30 to quickly run out and lay towels down...it got very busy around there. Don't worry about taking towels as you get given fresh ones round the pool everyday with a token card.
Main pool lovely - lots of games to do - volley ball, football, archery and many more. The pool game was always fun to watch. Pool water also a lovely temperature (compared to the quiet pool which is freeeeezing!!!!!!!)
Animation Team - Well - what can i say - they were all LOVELY!!! Couldn't fault them AT ALL!! Ever so friendly (and also quite goodlooking lol) They worked very hard up at 10 and still up in the disco at 2 in the morning!! There shows in the evening do need a little bit of improvement but overall good - the dance mix very good...what good dancers they all are!!!
Weather great - theyd had a heat wave the week b4 we went so when we arrived everyone was enjoying the breeze...i think it hit 42 one day!! Very nice!!
Food - This was one thing we were a little disapointed about it all looked very sloppy!! Breakfast was my fave meal of the day, pancakes and crossiants!! Fry up was available aswell.
I was VERY disapointed that there was hardly ANY fruit in the hotel apart from MELON!! If you don't like melon then you're abit lost!! Also plums but too sour to eat!!
Snack bar on the beach was good for burgers, chips and pizza...a bit more of a variety wouldnt go a miss tho!!
We didnt sample any of the restauant you had to book up for...we spoke to a couple that said "don't bother" so we didnt.
Turgetreis about a 10-15min walk....my boyfriend had a turkish shave which was about £5 and lasted 30min - he got SO MUCH for his money, shave, nose hair, massage, little hair on ears and face, eyebrows and an excellent close shave...would recommend it. They didnt pester us at all in the town...if we said no theyd just say "hav a nice day" - very polite!!!
Didnt do any of the thomson trips out - i think if we were there 2 weeks we would have.
I had a back massage in the hotel spa which was very good, which i enjoyed.
The starlight bar is a MUST watching the sunset and enjoying a glass of champagne!! The barmen up there will remember your drinks as soon as you walk in.
Worth having the guys take some professional photos - they work out at bout £5 each but they are good and capture you on the sunset and in the gardens.
Internet room is free.
Didnt try cinema. Got a book from the reading room.
We went to the disco one nite and it was a fun night...watching all the 16 - 17yr olds that had managed to get an adults wrist bands and had drunk too much sex on the beach! Open til 2.
Didnt wanna leave!!!! 2 weeks was needed!!
Transfer on the way back to the airport was a little a bit unorganised but we got there and the flight took off 10min early...but longer flight of 4hrs on the way home.
Would deffo recomend this hotel to anyone!! I'd deffo go back.
