“Lovely hotel and holiday!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013

Spent a relaxing 2 weeks in the small, friendly and welcoming Orion Hotel in Bitez. The room was clean and well maintained as was the hotel. The hotel pool and bar was clean, small and reasonably priced. The location was perfect, In a quiet area with a short walk to the beach front and around the corner from the bus stop and taxi rank for travelling into Gumbet and Bodrum. Breakfast was a good Turkish buffet mix.

The hotel staff, including the cleaning team and Billy were very friendly and chatty. Nothing was too much trouble for them. However, as previously stated, "Aaron" (Erhun) was the main man that ran the show. He was a great bar man, chef, entertainer, brilliant laugh and all round good guy.

All in all its a barry wee hotel and would stay again if back in Bitez!

Small (27 rooms across three buildings facing inwards to a porched area where breakfast was served) family run hotel. Clean and well serviced, if a little basic - well you get what you pay for, and it was very reasonably priced. The breakfast was plentiful on a buffet basis, all local food, so yogurt, cold hard boiled eggs, mixed meats and feta cheese, salad, olives, fresh fruit lovely fresh bread, nothing hot though! There was an a la carte and a snacks menu for during the day, but most people did eat their other meals in Bitez. Lovely independently run bar by a small. clean well maintained pool.
The major plus for us is that this hotel attracted mostly slightly older couples, so great back ground music, not deafening sounds or beats. relaxing, friendly and excellent value for money. Just the job!

Room Tip: Upstairs if you can (although you'd have to carry your own luggage, this low-rise hotel doesn...

I'm not really one for reviews but after being at the Orion n Bitez thought it was the right thing to do!

We had the night flight, arriving 4AM in the morning and greeted at reception and bags taken to the room.

Hit the hay, get up early in the morning for the breakfast, which unfortunately I couldn't really call a breakfast, it was really the bare minimal, no juice or water and just the basics. However was enough to get a little food in the tummy to start the day.

In the morning we really got a handle on the place, nice small (only 24 rooms) hotel, lovely pool area and great bar. Food was fine for a snack at lunch and the drinks were all reasonably priced.

Aaron / Erhun the bar man was the person who really made the holiday, he provided the simple complex with a huge personality which was great. Makes a mega cocktail and is hands on all around the hotel (Cheffing, tidying the pool area, drinks, helping out however he can). Without Aaron the stay could have become a little boring because it was very quiet and I can get restless very quickly!

The location was ideal, close enough to the beach that it's a few minutes walk but far enough back that you've got no cars, noise, people around.

Building was clean, well made and very enjoyable to stay. However have to say the rooms are small and the beds not my thing (bit stiff and just a cover, no duvet)

Shower in the bathroom was great, actually all facilities there were ideal.

Overall we had a fantastic stay, Bitez a lovely destination, small strip down the beach with loads of restaurants and seaside service along with plenty of activities in the sea. The hotel was perfect for us, cost effective holiday and had great fun.

Would definitely go back again if I happened to go to Bitez.

Just spent a lovely week at the Orion hotel, very friendly and relaxing place. The hotel is small and being away from the main road is quiet and peaceful. Breakfast is tasty and typical Turkish, eggs, cheese, cold meat and bread served in comfortable outside area. As previously mentioned, the experience was enhanced by Erhun, the amazing barman who was able to turn his hand to most things and was extremely helpful. Lots of places to eat and trips close by.

If you want a relaxing holiday, in lovely surroundings then this is the place to go. Just a few minutes from the lovely clean beach, the Orion was everything we wanted from a holiday. The barman/chef/entertainer/receptionist/general dogsbody - Erhun was brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The rooms were kept really clean, in fact the whole place was spotless. We had a wonderful week and didn't want to leave! Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to holiday in Turkey. Bodrum is only a 15 minute bus ride away and is well worth a visit. The resort of Bitez has plenty of variety of restaurants/bars to suit all tastes.

Room Tip: Rooms opposite the entrance have a sea view.
