“lovely views”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

had two weeks there in a room with pool views and a balcony (some just open onto a terrace). Lovely views across the bay. Restaurant was good with fish every day. BBQ available lunch and dinner. In the evening there's not enough tables, so we avoided the rush by going around 8:15pm making for a more pleasant experience. Wine is by the glass. The waiters are not always that attentive to refilling with either water or wine. But they do work very hard and are polite and friendly. Gym is well equipped. The changing rooms are a little cramped with insufficient lockers. There is no changing facilities at the indoor pool, so you have to walk while wet along the corridor past the gym and table tennis table. Reasonable trips are available for sale from the beach.

Room Tip: get a pool view as the garden view just opens on to the corridor guests walk along, so no privacy.

We were there for a week early May, so the hotel wasn't full I guess as it was just the start of the season. We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The staff was very friendly all the time, food was great. Perfect spot in terms of view and location, close to Bodrum city centre, we were walking there, otherwise you can use the taxi boat. Spa had great massages. Gym was also good. I would be happy to stay there next time!

This is our second time here ,it's a well run and beautifull hotel where the food is mainly buffet of exceptional range and quality.
We had a sea view room near the restaraunt ,making it very handy for all the amenities .( the hotel is built on a slope so if your not agile mention it on booking ) .
This hotel is cleaned and maintained to the highest standards.thanks
Take the water taxi to Bodrum it's 6 lire and easy as it drops you in the middle of town.
The entertainment is a bit naff ,but we are used to cruising so that may be a bit unfair.
We will go back some time ,we enjoyed it just as much on this visit .
Beautiful hotel ,brilliant location.

Room Tip: It's on a hill ,so let them know and they will put you in a lower room .

Just spent two weeks in the Salmakis, had a really relaxing holiday, we paid for the room with a sea view and were very pleased with our room, it was quiet and roomy, cleaned daily.
The staff in the hotel were very friendly and only one grumble when we had to wait to be served in the beach bar for around 25 minutes the rest of the stay they were there straight away. One reviewer put that the staff had very little english? well we were in Turkey would you speak Turkish to tourists in England? I think not.
The food for us was fine, I am so fussy when it comes to food but there was never a time that there was not something I could eat.
This was our first trip to the Salmakis and Turkey and we would return.
The location might not suit all but we found it great its away from the bustle of Bodrum but there is a water taxi every 15 minutes which only costs 6 Lira each.
The entertainment is a bit naff but thats not what we went there for.
Overall I would recommend the Salmakis if you want a good relaxing holiday.

Just returned from 2 wonderful weeks here, having also stayed last year. Our room was spacious and the bed particularly comfortable. The pool area was attractive and clean, with an amazing view over Bodrum bay. Staff were helpful and attentive, with particular praise due to the bar staff and bar waiters. The food and drink offer was varied and of high quality, although we did not try the a la carte restaurant. The beach level bar also provided good food and drink options outside main meal times.We enjoyed using the water taxi to go into Bodrum, but really there is little need to leave the hotel, unless like us you wish to explore the locality. Other guests appeared to be enjoying their stay. We also enjoyed using the indoor pool and steam room on a rare cloudy day. The gardens are very well maintained and there are several quieter areas should you wish for a change of scene.We have stayed in several all-inclusive hotels across Turkey, and the Salmakis is the most comfortable.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are popular, but for privacy choose a garden view room.

Having never been to Turkey we opted for the quieter location of Bodrum. The Salmakis rests on a hill side between Gumbet and Bodrum, both walkable but there is a shuttle bus that runs between both every 10 minutes until about 2am for 3TL per person or you could take the little ferry boat that runs to Bodrum for 6TL.
The location of the hotel was exceptional, looking over the bay to Bodrum but this is only visible if you chose a sea view room (recommended). The hotel is very clean a really quite lovely although our room smelt badly of cigarette smoke...some of the staff on reception were perhaps not particularly helpful to the point of being rude, but that was a small thing really as the rest of the staff were lovely.
Be careful of the cocktails...they are dangerous :-) The food at the restaurant was lovely and fresh every day and really tasty, with a barbecue of fresh fish and meats. There is also a snack bar near the beach in the day time that is also good.
I would advise that if you have small children, disabled or elderly, request one of the lower rooms due to the hill side location there is a lot of steps from reception to the pool and restaurant.
The beach wasn't very good but the jetty with sunbeds on was a lovely way to take in the sunshine.
Just one real downer for me was one of the male cleaners followed me into the ladies toilets even though he was waiting for the lift to go somewhere else...Slightly disconcerting.
Overall a lovely hotel, lovely location and we did have a fabulous time.

Room Tip: Choose Sea view really worth it

We chose this hotel because of its excellent location only a few minute away from the city center and also 15 min walk. The staff at the reception was friendly but not professional enough to help. The staff at the restaurant and bar were over friendly and disturbing. Even when you say NO, they follow you whereever you go and insisted too much. Near to the swimming pool, there was a souvenir shop and we asked them if it is possible to send postcards and the woman told us that we could also buy stamps and post it directly from the postbox. Unfortunately none of of the cards were delivered to our family. It has been 6 months and nobe of the cards has been sent.Very disappointed....
