I booked this hotel, at a very good price. On arrival we where greeted by two members of male staff, friendly and welcoming, they checked us in, gave room and towel cards and all inclusive bands. They then took our luggage to our hotel room, number 5. When we opened the door, it was a little dissapointing, not at all like the photos but then again they never are. The room was tidy and partially clean. We did find other peoples food in the fridge from previous visit and used teabags under the bed. The toilet seat was coming off the floor and the furniture was very dated, luckily the experience of the hotel brought it around. The bar offer many drinks, vodka, gin, beer and local spirits. What made my holiday is the sex on beach and blue lagoon cocktails, and local Amaretto which saved me as I hate vodka. The bar staff are hit and miss about how friendy they want to be and they do seem to be very fond of the Germans, I will not lie about that, soon as they heard English they seemed unhelpful and always let other people push in constantly.It is very much true and obvious, but to be honest this did not affect me. I particulary enjoyed speaking to Ferhat, what a lovely gentleman along with samet, and ismail 1 and 2. The food the first few days was very good, and I enjoyed it. It was fresh, clean and well equipped in the restuarant. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The food was a little bit same old same, but it was great food. The hotel grounds where beautiful, clean and well presented. Plently of pool loungers, but this could change if hotel gets busier. The pool is very very deep so be careful, there is no shallow end. The entertainment in the evenings, is very good as there is a different show every night. The speciality restuarant which you get free of charge was not really to my taste, set three course meal. Flat bread and dips, Lamb main, then bakclava dessert. The staff where lovely though during the meal. Overall the hotel is lovely, the staff are lovely. The DJ is awful!! They need to get rid, the music is so bad, and he only speaks to foreign guests, he is very rude and arrogant. The music from the club bar street is unavoidable, it is so loud. I am 21 and it kept me awake even coming back from the clubs at 3/4am. The drinks in the main town are quite expensive coming in at 15/20 lira per drink. So drink as much as you can before! The beach is lovely we get our own area and sun loungers, there is a lovely man who does the boat trip called Popeyes, please please please book with him, he is so lovely and reliable, the food I got on this trip beat the hotel. The wifi never worked at the hotel, which was a real shame. Apparently they where problems across bodrum, but the wifi worked every now and then for like 10 minutes, so please do not rely on the wifi connection. I did have a lovely holiday, was a little sad when Elcin did not seem very interested in helping me or my friends, she seemed uninterested and rolled her eyes often, but read so many good reviews about her, that was a shame. it was a lovely hotel, room for improvements but overall it was good and I really enjoyed my time at this hotel, I would definitely return and looking to come back this year or next! Thank you Magnific, but work on those little things and you will be the best hotel in the whole of Bodrum <3
