We just returned from a two week stay in Turkey with our seventeen year old son. We ended the trip with a three night stay at the 4Reasons in Yalikavak. This hotel is a gorgeous boutique hotel. There were beds around the pool, a great restaurant, a pool table and game room right off the pool which my son and I used quite a bit. The hotel is not great for families with smaller kids as it is pretty laid back, but it is perfect for families with older kids, couples and anyone else looking to chill in an absolutely exquisite setting. The manager of the pool/restaurant area is Birol (pronounced "Beer-ol"). He was gracious and attended to our every need. He also is the top bartender in Turkey and finished third in the European bartending competition; so you should expect excellent drinks. The hotel advertises that it is within 500 meters of a beach. That is true, but it is not a beach by US standards. We went there and decided it was not a place to lounge for any extended period of time. There are private beaches that are somewhat expensive nearby. The best alternative we found was to take a short taxi to Gundogan for about TL20. They had sandy beaches and lots of cafes. Yalikavak is quite beautiful and offered a quieter alternative than staying in Bodrum proper. We found it quite easy to take the Dolmus (small bus) into Bodrum which cost TL4 each and took about 45 minutes. Our one criticism was the room. We rented the functional suite; it was not particularly functional. It would have been nice if it had a sitting area. It was really just two connected single rooms.
