“Surprised visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

We booked in to the Palmiye apartments for an early break, and were surprised on how clean it was. The staff were very helpful and happy to sort out any little problem you might have. The meals were 5/6 star quality. We are both almost 70 and been in a few dives but we would recommend the Palmiye to anyone. In our view if you found a genuine fault that was not put right straight away then I would suggest that the fault was with you and not the Palmiye.
Excellent apartment, excellent food and excellent staff.and clean .....we hit the jackpot. Well done Palmiye keep it up.

Turgetris is a beautiful resort that we knew but when we stayed there we found out how friendly and helpful the locals are. Having been to several other resorts in the Bodrum area Turgetris was like a breath of fresh air - there was no hassle no pressure - just lovely people. To say we fell on our feet at The Palmiye Apartments is an understatement - Serkan & Amanda could not do enough for you and always made us feel very welcome. The apartments are clean and tidy, just as they say but that's not the half of it - the location is perfect for everything. The beach is at the end of the road and town is about 3 mins walk! Everyone who stays athe apartments seem to be regulars, come back year after year - sometimes twice a year. Great pool bar with excellent value food on offer - really I can't say enough about these apartments. I know we are looking to go back ASAP.

It's been many years since we were last in Turgutreis and we were amazed at the scale of development that's taken place (which is pretty much true of the whole Bodrum peninsular). But the Palmiye is a very pleasant small complex in a quiet area, just a couple of streets away from the beach, shops, restaurants and market square, all of which can be reached in minutes. The surrounding area is a mix of private Turkish houses and other small apartments/boutique hotels - all in all a really good location and we were very pleased with our choice. The large pool is well maintained with lots of seating around the pool and in the pool bar area (and some resident tortoises in the corner of the garden!). Our double bed apartment was a good size and adequately equipped for self catering although we ate out all the time and found a couple of excellent restaurants nearby. We visited in early October and our small balcony never got any sun; perhaps it's better in Summer. Our only real issue was the availabilty of hot water - fine if the sun had heated the solar panels during the day but cloudy weather meant a couple of cold showers in the evening, and no hot water at all in the mornings (we mentioned this to the owners and electric heating was used one evening). The views from the nearby beach are wonderful, the sunsets behind the offshore islands are spectacular and you can walk for miles along the beach and coastal pathways. The Palmiye is a good value complex in a great location and well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Some balconies are sunnier than others (some appear to get very little or no sun at all). If this is...

This was our first visit to Turgutreis.We have been to a few places in Turkey but Turgutreis is the best so far.The town is bustling with locals and tourists.There are little allyways of the beachfront packed with shops , hairdressers and restaurants.The palmiye apartments are lovely.When arriving we were shown to the rooms by the two brothers who run it.They carried our cases and were most helpful during our stay of two weeks.VERY clean and comfortable and quiet.Location fab just a stroll to the beach and centre.Could not find fault with anything.

This was our first holiday in Turkey and the warm welcome received by everyone in Turgutreis has ensured we will visit Turkey again. We travelled with Cosmos and our rep was surprised that it was our first time at Palmiye as she said most clients are repeat business. This was backed up by people we came across in the town, waiters etc, who said that many people return to Palmiye year after year - what better advert can you ask for? Palmiye is a small, family run complex of about 17 apartments. We had a spacious 2-bed apartment on the top floor, very clean and well equipped with the added bonus of 2 bathrooms.
The pool was clean with an adequate amount of sunbeds and umbrellas. At any one time about half the people around the pool were not actually staying at the complex, but this didn't seem to be a problem. It seems to be standard practice at places like this so long as you make use of the pool bar (certainly this is the case in the small complexes we've stayed at in Greece). Pool bar serves excellent snacks and an evening meal upon request.
The family and staff that run Palmiye are warm, friendly and attentive and seem to work all hours! A word of warning - beware the ice cold water gun!!!
Location was great for us, within easy reach of the beach, market, shops, bars and restaurants, but not too close for any noise to be intrusive. In fact it was rare to hear any noise at all at night (apart from a particularly noisy dog).

My 1st time at the Palmiye but my friend had been several times. Staff were totally welcoming to us and immedietly treated as family. We arrived very late (early hours) but were shown to our room without delay and offered a drink.
The room was brilliant, we actually had a double bed and had asked for a twin and was told we could change in the morning as he didn't know ofhand which was a twin. In the morning we decided not to bother changing as the bed was big enought, the rest of the room large enough, balcony had a great view and we were happy.

We mainly used the beach during the day on this holiday as there was very little sun at this time of the year at the Palmyre due to the buildings, it no bother having a 5 min walk there and back. We did stay in and have an early evening drink and found all the staff/other guests so welcoming we stayed on for a meal. which was best steak I've ever had! Truth, cooked to how we liked it and presented so very well with carved tomatoes!
Wouldn't hesitate to return and infact I think we are this summer!

Lovely place, lovely people and I wish I was there now.
