Myself, my husband, my teenage Daughter and her friend have just returned yesterday from a week's stay at the Palm Wings Beach Resort.
The worst thing about this holiday was the transfer which took 1.5 hours. We had a delay at bodrum waiting for our pre-booked transfer for over an hour. So not a good start but our first impression of the hotel when we were dropped off was utter amazement. It looked very impressive and the faces of the other passengers on the coach just said it all. We were greeted from the coach by a Bell Boy whom collected our luggage and guided us to reception. Once we had checked in we then were greeted with a Golf Buggy style transportation to take us to our room.
The family room was ideally situated close to the pool and the Private beach and was very clean and spacious. The air conditioning is a life saver.
The food at the hotel is very varied and find it hard to believe from previous reviews and seeing people in the restaurant that the only food some people found to eat were chips and burgers. The food was amazing although it can seem a little repetative. We were ok with this as we only had the week although we did eat out in Altinkum one evening just for a change. On the whole very good standard of food was available throughout the day.
The Private beach is amazing. So pretty and peaceful. Watersports are available for an extra cost. Approx 25tl each person for about 10mins.
The swimming pool is just as loveley with the entertainment team encouraging people to try out the games, water gym etc although you do not have to take part.
The drinks at the bar are served in small beakers and the beer tasted a lot weaker than that of the bars we visited outside of the hotel.
With regard to the Salmonella that has been mentioned in the last few reviews, we did not see any evidence of this. I had slight upset tummy one night as did my daughter but no more than we have experienced on anyother holiday abroad. In all this is a very friendly, clean hotel. I would just say that the Turks holidaying there do not have any manners. They do seem to think they own the place. Turkish people on the whole are very friendly.
Although we have never been back to the same hotel twice just because we like trying new places, I would certainly consider the Palm Beach if returning to Altinkum.
