My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights at the end of May and was a little dubious seeing the mixed reviews it received but glad we took no notice as what we experienced was really first class!
Yes there are a number of steps you have to contend with it if you look at the majority of hotels in Bodrum most AI are built into the hillside. It also allows you some exercise with the fabulous food the hotel provides you with. Our room was situated right at the very top bit there are lifts so it wasn't too bad.
A sea view room is definitely a must as the views over the bay are spectacular. The room was spacious and the bed extremely comfortable, offering what we saw as a super king size! A water taxi is available for around 6lire (£2) and takes you over to Bodrum harbour. We did this twice during our stay and it's so convenient as you pick it from the beach at the bottom of your hotel.
The food is amazing and offers such a great variety. I couldn't understand those who said its repetitive as it pretty much offers you anything you wNt from an extensive salad bar to grilled items on the BBQ. We also enjoyed having lunch at the beach bar as it offered great pizzas, burgers, etc.
Yes the waiters who served you lacked a little bit of friendliness every now and again but they have a lot of people to deal with and they work damn hard.
If you want a change from the beach/pool during the day I would definitely recommend choosing the boat day which costs you around £10 each with lunch and takes you to five different coves! Great value!
Overall a fabulous place and we would definitely book again at the same hotel.
