Hotel Istankoy was great, so cheap and way above what we were expecting! It is right next to Bodrum beach, so there are lots and lots of restaurants around for you to eat in. Within walking distance to the markets, harbor and bus station to get to other places. We took a trip to Gumbet beach and had a lovely day, as long as you buy a drink you can stay on the sunbeds for free- although I recommend eating on the front as the food is very nice and affordable.
Istankoy is a great base to stay in, small and friendly with a karaoke most nights! If your a fan of steak try one at Istankoy- honestly the best steak I've ever had! My girlfriend is vegetarian and there were options for her everywhere. There is a sun terrace above the bar where there are lots of sunbeds and where no one else really goes, so its lovely and quite but very hot! Food and drink very cheap at the hotel and a great quality.
The best trip was the chill out cruise, it is guaranteed that there are no children and you get a whole day sailing at sea, great music playing and lots of opportunities to cool off in the sea and free drinks all day- with lunch included (i recommend mixing lemonade or Fanta with the wine otherwise its a bit vinegary), wouldn't recommend the Dalyan discovery; it costs a fair bit of money, takes a long time to get there and we didn't sea any turtles at all- even though they make out that they will be everywhere :(
before we went we were worried about how much we would spend on water- don't panic its about £1.20 for 5 liters of water so it actually works out cheaper than at home. all of the beaches have lovely warm water and are clean and clear.
If you can try and find somewhere to watch belly dancing! be warned though she may get the men up to dance.
