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.

Stayed here in June 2014 with my family. There was a mix up with our rooms as they were not adjoining as requested. Rooms were clean and comfortable, nice thick mattresses (ours looked new), but duvet was to narrow and didn't cover the bed properly, bedding was changed regularly but often had rips in them. Room had a hairdryer, safe, fridge but no kettle. We were only half board and were told initially that all soft drinks and local wine and beer was included in the evening meal, this was not the case as we found out! The hotel should have a leaflet clearly explaining what you get for half board. Buy your drinks and water from a local supermarket.

Food was okay catered for most people with cereal, fruit, fresh bread and preserves, cold meats, cheeses and freshly cooked eggs. Evening meal had a salad buffet, ready prepared dishes kept warm, and dishes cooked outside in the bbq area. A large selection of deserts, some highly coloured, very sweet but fresh fruit was available and ice cream.

Pool area was great plenty of beds and parasols. A small shop selling papers, beach ware, souvenirs and some snacks. There was entertainment for children, but the evening entertainment wasn't very good. Photographers were very annoying constantly hassling people for photographs, being too persistent at times, we are there to relax and enjoy ourselves not having to fend off annoying people!

There are plenty of steps, although there are lifts (three in total) to get from reception to the pool area and restaurant so make sure your room is in a suitable place for your needs.

It is only a short walk into Bodrum (about 10 minutes), buses are fantastic and run past the hotel every 10 minutes (bit of a hike to get to the road), you just flag them down anywhere and hop on, costing only tl 3 or euro 1.50. There are also water taxis from the jetty in the hotel next door and only cost tl 6 per journey, this takes you straight to the harbour.

Basically a nice hotel cleaners and most waiters were good, unfortunately reception staff were very unhelpful and we witnessed many complaints whilst we were there. Wifi is useless cuts you off after 5 minutes and the password changed 3 times on one day!! Unfortunately I would not want to stay here again, the staff need a lot more training in customer service.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room best get one furthest away from the pool area where people tend to sit after dinner, can get noisy.

My wife and I stayed at the Salmakis for a week at the beginning of May 2014. In terms of most things it was a pleasant enough place to stay for an early summer get away, nothing was really great, but equally nothing was really bad either. Just very average!

The location is good, with nice views over the bay towards Bodrum. Our room was comfortable and spacious and kept clean. The hotel itself is big and spacious and the public areas nicely presented, but the layout overall made it feel a bit rambling. The need to go up and down steps to get around within the hotel and the steep access pathways from the main road makes it unsuitable for anybody not firm of foot or who suffers from breathing problems.

We had not booked an all inclusive package, and were glad that we hadn't. Generally the food was adequate. The breakfasts were better than the food on offer for the evening meal, which tended to be repetitive. The salads/starters and desserts all looked spectacular, but particularly with the desserts all tended to taste the same.... just different colours or made in different shaped moulds.

Our overall impression was that with so many people staying there on an all inclusive basis, there appeared to be little inclination for some of the staff to make much of an effort. As an example, on our first day, we wanted something quick and simple to eat, so chose to buy lunch in the snack bar. We were the only people in the snack bar when we arrived and ordered two sandwiches. One arrived after about a 20 minute wait, the second after another 20 minutes. The two staff on duty, by now were more interested in chatting up the two young girls who had by this time had arrived.

Overall, this could be a really good hotel, it is in a great location with good views, but our impression was that nobody appeared to be actually managing or quality controlling any of the services and as a result they failed to meet their potential. Having said all of the above, we did have a pleasant enough time. Would we go back? Yes, but probably only on a bed and breakfast basis, as the food in the evenings in Bodrum was so much better!

Room Tip: Sea view is essential

Lovely pool in a lovely setting however the service was very poor of both reception and some dining staff. The rooms vary from really terrible (which was what we originally got) to lovely with a balcony which we eventually got!

Room Tip: On the right wing of the hotel near the hair salon.
