“Well run Operation!!!!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013 via mobile

Stayed at this hotel between the 7-21 of June....Overall an excellent experience....short of a kettle in the room and maybe a mini fridge but apart from this the hotel was fine clean and well maintained grounds....very secluded location about 170 metres from main drag makes for a very peacefull relaxing poolside experience prices at the small but more than adequate bar reflected local prices.....Breakfast basic but ok snack and meal menu again adequate and competitvley priced.....Enjoyed my stay here and met some fab people shout out to the Guv and Ding at this point lol......Sort of understand some of the poorer reviews on here regarding certain charachter traits displayed by certain staff but personally did not experience this......Clicky hmmm could be i suppose but thats down to the guests and no fault of hotel the other guests on my visit inc many returning for upto the 3rd time were great and not clicky at all....Murhat runs the place well and i would definately consider a return visit.

This was our first holiday in Bitez and I was so pleased that we booked Small World. It is only about 200 yards to the promenade and beach. The family are helpful and friendly,the hotel is clean and comfortable.The bus to Bodrum stops about 100 yards from the hotel.Wonderful!

Room Tip: All rooms are more or less the same. Ones with a pool view are probably best. There are only 16 room...

We have been staying in Bitez for many years, last year we found the Small World and found it a fantastic little hotel,clean and very friendly. The food served was as good as we have eaten in the resort .I have booked to go back in may and hope to do so for many years.The owners ar allways on hand to sort out any problems not that i had any my room was clean and there was lots of hot water even on very dull days ..

Room Tip: all the rooms ar set arround the pool the ground floor much easier if like me stairs ar a problem .

this was our second vist to small world and found it just as good as our first stay infact we are booked in for sept 2013 already. the rooms are basic but nice we was overlooking the pool. hot water all the time and cleaner works hard all day she is a lovley lady. a big hello to murat and abdullah both genuine nice guys and the lady who cooks the food works very hard and the food is fab mmm could it it now thinking of it. spag bowl with garlic mushrooms mmmm very nice. the pool area is very clean and quite so nice to chill out when needed. the beach is only 5 min walk and sunbeds are free as long as you buy a drink down there which is nice as its very hot and the guys on the beach do a very good job. bitez is nice and chilled back with loads of places to eat and relax with a drink. small world is our little hidden gem and looking forward to seeing all the staff again. we have made some lovley friends for life at this hotel who we have met up with twice at this hotel and meeting up again in 2013 big hello to ruth & pat pete and marilyn thanks for evreything and stroll on 2013. from vince & annmarie

Our first time in Bitez. This small hotel was just as we had hoped for, relaxed, friendly, clean & well run. we can't find fault. It had a lovely Turkish charm & we agree with all the good comments written before this. We couldn't agree with any previous adverse comments. Everywhere was clean, tidy & we had no problems with linen, towels or water! Murat & team were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. Thank you all for adding to a very enjoyable holiday. We will have no hesitation in recommending your lovely hotel.

A very pleasant little hotel with staff to match. It was a blessing to find a place run by Turks who were still happy to be Turkish and not acting up to what they think the English want to see. There was real Turkish hospitality here from genuinely friendly staff. The rooms were clean and basic for the nature of this type of hotel; linen and towels clean; generally hot water at all times, but occasional showers that went from tepid to super-heated in a second; also occasions of self-destructing shower fittings. Food was really excellent and we wished we'd taken more advantage of this. Bar was comfy and well-stocked as well as not having western music blaring out at ridiculous decibels as is the curse of nearly every beach, bar, hotel and restaurant on the peninsula. I would definitely go back if only Turkey could halt its slide into the Costa Ibiza-Ness that has ruined so many other nice places.

This was our ninth holiday to Turkey and our first to Bitez and the Small World which we stayed at from the 10th Sep for two weeks.Whilst reassured by the majority of excellent ratings we were a little apprehensive as to the cause of the poor ratings. Our apprehensions were quickly overcome by our experiences in this delightful little hotel.A family run hotel set in beautiful gardens of Hibiscus , Bourganvilleas and night scented Jasmin. it is about a 5 min stroll to the beach and 2 minutes from the Dolmus route. A spotless pool area with sun beds and umbrellas and a small but safe bathing pool. Rooms were more than adequate in size with ample electrical points,television and more than generous storing facilities. We were in a back room which,I suspect,has more furniture for storage and more power points than those overlooking the pool. There was a constant supply of very hot water,day and night. Rooms were cleaned daily with regular changes of bedding and towels.Efficient air conditioning at £30 per week and a safety deposit box in each bedroom costing £15 per week .(Both optional) Breakfast was a basic Turkish breakfast,plenty of it with tea,coffee or fruit juice. I guess it did get a little monotonous towards the end but, hey- this is Turkey. Bitez is graced with countless restaurants and it wasn't until the second week that we dined in at the hotel of an evening.The quality and presentation of the food was excellent and we regretted not making earlier use of that facility.It was on a par with the best in Bitez. The staff were delightful.We are not bar flies so didn't get to know Murat for a few days but when we did we found him to be polite,humorous and helpful.A lovely guy. Little Abdullah beavered away relentlessly clearing tables,cleaning the pool and night watchman duties.A shy but very pleasant guy. In fact all concerned, owners and staff,did so much to make our holiday the happy event it was. Don't be put off by the adverse criticisms that have appeared in this forum, it is a superb hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool are a bit smaller with less storage space and power points.The rooms at t...
