We stayed at WOW Bodrum for 10 days traveling with Thomas Cook at the end of June. Firstly don't be put off by the bad reviews- you can't please all of the people all of the time!
Check in was very fast and efficient- we even had our bags/cases taken to our room for us.
The rooms were fine, we had seen the pictures so knew what to expect but we did see rooms that looked recently renovated and much better than ours. They were clean an had nearly everything we needed. The mini bar does only have one of each beverage but we went to the relax pool bar and got ourselves a few extra beers to put in the mini bar. The safe is great and free of charge, the shower is great. The only downfall would be the bath needed replacing and there was no iron.
All of the outside areas were spotless, including the beach and the pool, there was a team continuously cleaning these areas.
The food was good in all restaurants, the Turkish being our favourite. We found that some of the people we were speaking to were unaware that you can eat in the la carte restaurants at lunch time (12-4 or 12-5) as many times as you want no booking required! The food in all of the la carte is next to none!
The entertainment was hit and miss, the Sunday night band are worth a watch, they even managed a request for me!
If you want to spend your day relaxing without and hassle then go to the relax pool, plenty of beds and very peaceful.
We went to Gumbet and Bodrum markets, we caught the dolmus in to Bodrum, 3TL and it drops you right in the centre, it's a green mini bus and you just wait outside the hotel, the driver will beep and you jump on. We also went on a Segway tour around Bodrum, 2 and a half hours and it was fantastic! We even went up to the windmills that are visible from the hotel. We enjoyed the water sports on the beach but make sure you bargain Tony down, by a package of 3 it works out much cheaper.
Guest relations are fantastic they were able to answer all of our questions and even provided scales so we could weigh our cases.
We eat at the Shanghai restaurant in town twice, both times we had fantastic meals.
Be careful when shopping as we bought shoes and we've just discovered they've given us 2 left feet! Also if you buy any perfume check they've given you the one that they showed you, they often show you something and put a different product in the bag!
Gumbet is loud of a night but after 2 nights we didn't notice it.
The balcony off the 24 hour bar is a beautiful place to sit of a night.
Overall worth every penny!
