“Lovely pool area”
Reviewed 23 June 2010

This hotel has a really nice pool area which is why we booked so in this respect it ticked the boxes. However, the hotel overall is looking very tired and outdated. The main problem was with the level of staff - for an apparent 5* hotel the service was very poor. Incredible frustrating (which I never did expect but 4* service at least). Shame, could be so much better as lots of space - was once obviously a glorious hotel... sadly not so much any more :-(

Had a lovely stay, food especially the deserts very good. Unfortunately the pool not open until our last day , gym poor. Staff very friendly and helpful . Would stay again. In a quiet location ten minute stroll to the marina. Recomend a bus ride to Yalikavak. Bodrum castle well worth a visit

I stayed here for 5 nights in October. It was a 20 minute walk into Bodrum centre. The electrics were very poor and the hot water in the sink was dirty and the decor did seem a bit tired.
The pool and the pool area was beautiful where the evening meal could be taken. I had a room overlooking the garden with the constant smell of yasmin. The hotel was barely half full with good friendly multi-national clientele. The hotel staff were very helpful and I got everything I asked for, iron etc. There was free use of a laptop giving internet access in the lobby.

If you are looking for lots of organised entertainment and a very lively resort hotel, then the Karia Princess is not for you. If on the other hand you are looking for a sophisticated Hotel where you can chill out and unwind, then this is definitely the place for you. The rooms are large and maintained to a high standard, the food is excellent, but most of all the staff is very welcoming and helpful. Overall one of the best hotels we have stayed at.

The front desk staff were really bad and seemed not to care when we asked for a room change. Plenty of food on the buffet. The room was old fashioned and asked for some extra towels but did not receive them even after calling again. Disappointed overall

We have just returned from The Karia Princess Hotel after eleven nights of being made feel as if we were the only guests in the hotel. The staff were dedicated and caring throughout our stay and it made every moment special. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them and we have never seen service delivered with such friendliness and sincereity.

We arrived at 9.00pm and were offered our meal straight away. Bags later...food now seemed to be the message. It was worth it!!

We strolled down to the restaurant and were immediately mesmerised by the view before us. Immaculately laid tables, flowers, candles even some romantic petals on the tables in the most perfect gardens lit by the swimming pools superb lighting display. The perfect setting and we ate there every night.

The feeling throughout the hotel is geared to deliver peace and relaxation. The classic but understated decor makes you realise immediately that you are going to be staying in a luxourious setting. Its just class and it has an atmosphere of understated grandeur.

The pool area is as relaxed as I think is humanly possible. Four hours feels like two and you find the lap of the water about as rowdy as the whole experience ever gets. To say this hotel does chilled is like saying Rolls Royce make cars!

For us it was perfect. An oasis of peace just a stroll from a rich and varied night life. Good bars, and great restaurants are only ten minutes walk away. Bodrum can be what you want it to be. There isn't much you can't find and what you can't the hotel staff will help you locate it.

The local Turkish Baths is opposite the Bus Station. Its a must, but don't be bashful....they're not! Also we booked a boat trip from one of the stalls near the bus station. you'll not spend a better ten pounds. Great day out!

The Karia Princess is Five Star...but only because they don't give Six Stars!

We are going back next year...no question and can't wait!!!!!!!

Everything was excellent! The rooms were spaceous, very clean and with air conditioning. The bed was very comfortable. There was a wide choice of food and it was that good that I always ate too much and still wanted to eat more. Every evening they grilled different type of meat outside where the tables were, just delishious! There were 2 swimming pools and even a Turkish bath but unfortunately it was not open due to quiet period. The staff was very friendly and helpful, I made many fiends there. I was there alone but I would recommend to go there with a friend (froup of friends) or a partner (family) to fully enjoy all the facilities. The best hotel I have ever stayed in!
