“A reason missing?”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The four reasons behind the title name are as follows: serenity, design, quality, attitude.

Well, the place definitely was serene. I loved the pool area which had a little bit for everyone (sun, shade, loungers, sofas...). The pool is a centrepiece to the public / common (for lack of better word) area with sun loungers, bistro and bar all located around it. True, some days there were screaming kids and the area was pretty crowded over the weekend, but overall, this really was an excellent relaxation area. Since it is set in a hill, the views over the village towards the sea were quite stunning.

Design. Yes, there was plenty of design, perhaps too much of it. The room (Functional) particularly felt really quite over designed... the room was on the small side yet there was a large but sadly utterly useless wardrobe, the lamps were awkward and took most of the bedside table space, there was a profound lack of surface on which to place things... Having said that, the overall look of the place was fine and fitted perfectly. And the balcony was stunning!

Quality. All the staff around the pool and in the bistro were very friendly, attentive and the overall feel of the service was excellent... even though the promised drink sometimes never arrived (waitress couldn't understand but was too shy to admit it!) but they really did try. Quality of food was ok although we had better down by the beach in Magi Beach. The pool was great, sun loungers super comfy etc.

The one reason missing though was definitely attitude on the managerial level. The first night of our stay, I asked the reception to book a restaurant (recommended by a local) for us. They seemed really disapproving of our choice. They didn't explain much about their reasons but appeared really offended when I insisted in this restaurant (which turned out to be great if a little overpriced). And it just went downhill from there... they were very economical on information and sometimes even rude. By the end of the week, I started feeling really uncomfortable whenever I spotted the manager around. Attitude was definitely present but not the good kind.

I still rate Four Reasons as very good and if the attitude improved, I would definitely recommend to friends!

If you need to relax! this is the place to go, The hotel is immaculate with fantastic views and the staff are excellent.
Yalikavak is a small picturesque fishing village with a fantastic market and appears to be attracting some wealthy visitors which is a endorsement for the area.

4Reasons is a fabulous hotel, its a little oasis, the setting is beautiful and the pool and the view over the town and out to see are stunning.

The staff at the hotel are great, the rooms are really top quality and it all adds up to deliver a really relaxing experience.

We ate in the hotel a few times and the food is excellent quality and the setting by the pool in candlelight is lovely.

All in all a great experience.

Room Tip: We stay in the love suite which was fabulous!

Just returned from my second trip to 4reasons. The hotel is as beautiful as ever.
Well kept gardens, efficient, friendly staff that go the extra mile..sorry Birol and the boys we kept you up a few nights..the cocktails are sooooo good, they not to be missed.
I had a standard room which was anything but standard, big and spacious with everything you need.
My favourite time of day was around 6pm, pre dinner drinks watching the sun go down over the seaview panorama. Dinner by candlelight, with some great friends.
Fantastic holiday I would gladly recommend to my friends and hope to return in the future.

I stayed there for 8 nights with a son, daughter-n-law and granddaughter aged 11. Excellent location up on the hill overlooking Yalikavak harbour. Loved it - the bliss of the absolute quietness of the place, the perfect setting for chilling out after arriving direct from 6 hectic days in Istanbul - another son's wedding, some sightseeing all mixed together with the traffic and noise. Whilst my family had a Junior Suite, (the bathroom there could have been more spacious), I had a lovely room with this really big bathroom on a raised wooden floor. The view from my balcony was amazing. I could see down to the harbour and out to sea to the faraway hills of the other peninsulas. No ugly, high-rise buildings blotting the landscape. Early morning and late evening were special times to sit out enjoying the view. Extremely nice people working in the hotel, always smiling and polite - many thanks to you all - to Ali, Ahmet, Birol, Yussuf, the smiling little waitress whose name I did not get, to the ones who cleaned our rooms - to everyone. Good food, great ice-cold beers and delicious daiquiris that we had round the pool. Breakfasts were sublime although I think the hour could be extended a little longer, say to 11am. It is holiday time. Missing also was a nice, sandy beach within walking distance.

I've just come back from 4 nights at the 4reasons Hotel and wanted to give the hotel a thumbs up, as I had the most amazing time in Turkey thanks to the staff at this hotel.

We stayed in a Junior Suite which was simple, bright and very good value for peak season. The bathroom was modern but by no means massive. Everything else however was fantastic. The hotel grounds are beautiful, set on a hillside with a large swimming pool and terrace that overlooks the woodland and sea in the distance. We didn't regret not being right on the seafront/shore-line, as the natural beauty of the hotel's site more than made up for this.

The 4reasons offered really lovely food (so yummy) with broad menus for lunch and dinner. Cocktails were delicious (the Marbella, made by Birol with fresh raspberries...). Dessert when we weren't too full, was fresh fruit crumbles, tarts and chocolate brownies. Everything was freshly made and very crisp with a personal touch. The service was very good, but most impressive of all was the concierge.

Ali and Ahmet the managers/concierge were so accommodating and generous with their recommendations. Yalikavak doesn't have the most sophisticated marina compared to other towns, so Ali graciously drew us a detailed map with his (brutally honest) recommendations of the many restaurants and private beaches all over Bodrum. We loved how forthcoming he was with personal advice on what to do and what to skip, even though this potentially meant a loss in meal/drink revenue for the 4reasons when we ate elsewhere. We were really glad we had him on hand to help, as it was our first time in the Bodrum Peninsula, and we didn't have a lot of time for trial and error like other guests. Ali made restaurant bookings for us in Golturbuku, Bodrum etc. He even phoned Macakizi when we wanted to go to their resort for the day. We were so grateful for this, and it made the world of difference to our vacation. Thank you Ali! When, not if, we go back to Bodrum, we will certainly stay at 4reasons.
