“The Beauty of the Aegean and its Coastline”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

The location is ideal, just beside the sea. Simple and clean bedrooms and bathrooms, set in a beautiful and well-kept garden, with shaded dining area and comfortable bar with a fine view of the coast. We were a party of 11, ages ranging from 2 to 80. The staff were exceedingly kind and friendly, loved the baby, translated the menu when necessary. Swimming is always from the decks, where the staff provide a first-class service of umbrellas, drinks, afternoon tea and cake! Generous swimming areas are clearly defined to stop boats and swimmers mixing. A quiet resort, but plenty to do including a day out in a boat stopping at three different bays for us to swim. Lovely yachts to look at. An ideal hotel for family parties, single women or middle-aged/elderly couples to relax and enjoy a real Turkish experience. But bring your phrase book or dictionary, and some books to read, because it is very rare to find another English speaker. Easily reach other towns including Bodrum town by dolmus or taxi - or closer to Turkbuku (taxi 10 TL). Highly recommended.

Room Tip: There are only 13 rooms - upstairs room have private balconies.

Reviewed 26 July 2012

Stayed there for a weekend break with a group of friends. We had to squeeze into a tiny room, grubby and old. Hotel's website said rooms have been renovated but ours definitely wasn't. Have been unnecessarily charged for everything they brought to the breakfast table as if those were part of their standard breakfast, only when leaving we learned those were extras!

The hotel calls itself a boutique hotel, it is nowhere near that, just a simple B&B. Terrible value for money.
Do not recommend to anyone at all!
