I won't lie, I was nervous about this holiday before we travelled having never experienced an all inclusive "fun in the sun" holiday. However, Grand Newport and all the staff there really helped to make this one of the most enjoyable holidays I've ever had. We went mid-late October which is very end of season so the hotel was a bit quiet, but that actually added to it feeling like a secluded little spot on the hill to relax in the sun. I doubt there is a better view from any hotel in the Bodrum region which really made for lovely evenings chilling with a wine or an Efes (even the one day of bad rain was amazing as you could see these incredible thunder storms over the bay).
I was very impressed with the range, quantity and quality of food. I wasn't the only person regularly going up for seconds and the waiting staff were very friendly and attentive. Not looking forward to trying to compete with my cooking at home...
The pool area was really nice (bit chilly!) and had a really nice relaxing vibe to it. Probably more lively in the main season but the little jetty/beach at the bottom of the hill is perfect for a lazy lounge in the sun.
Overall great place to stay, great connections to Bodrum or Bitez Beach (downtown Gumbet wasn't really our cup of tea), and finally a big shout out to GiGi, the DJ and all the staff. You guys were great - many thanks for a lovely stay.
