We have just returned from 14 nights at Blue Bay Platinum, this was a couples holiday and finding things to fault with this hotel is extremely difficult.
We didn't arrive until the early hours of the morning but were quickly checked in and shown to our rooms, where a quick snack was waiting for us. The rooms are spotless very modern like the rest of the hotel and for the price we paid you really feel like your in a premium hotel at great value.
Have to say a big thank you to Paula the Thomson rep at the hotel, she is great with helpful tips and useful advice, she is very approachable and easy to get a hold of. She also booked us onto some great excursions, we booked the Blue Cruise and the Dalyan Check out, both of which I would highly recommend, especially the Dalyan Check out for those with a late flight as this is the best way to spend your final day.
The staff are all very friendly and helpful, we met Antonio on the first day and he booked all four of us into the spa, which is a must a great way to start off the holiday, and very reasonably priced.
The only down sides I can think of is the daily maid service, they very much do the bare minimal some days barely making the bed, and I think if this one thing was improved upon it would leave everyone coming away feeling like they have ticked all the boxes. Also the hotel advertises it's own private section on the beach, however the beach is not the best in this location very pebbly and you have to walk across a waste land area between the hotel and beach, definitely worth traveling to Icmeler beach instead. Food was all great, lots of choices, even after two weeks we had not become fed up of the food, was all very tasty.
Despite the couple of drawbacks I would still definitely give Blue Bay 5/5 due to the value for money you receive we will definitely be back to Turkey and Blue Bay in the future!
