See Dolphina's review of 23 October which also sums up our experiences of being ejected from the complex and confirms the disgraceful way in which the few remaining guests were treated on their last day. It was shameful.
It spoilt what had on the whole been a good break and I would have rated the stay very good but for the attitude of management at the end of the holiday. A couple of points to consider for anyone contemplating visiting. The complex is close to Bodrum and is easily reached by the local Dolmus service, however there is not much else in the area. If you are happy to lounge around the pool or join the activities then fine, but if like us you like a walk along a beach, promenade, harbour or local town for a morning coffee or evening stroll after dinner then this is not the place for you. It is also quite noisy, not just from the building works which will hopefully be finished by next summer but there is constant loud throbbing music throughout the day. Some of this relates to the entertainment/games, but as the average age of most of the guests was well over fifty it seemed to be for the benefit of the younger entertainment staff.
The accommodation was fine but there is little privacy. The shower / WC area is only separated from the living area by a patterned sliding glass door (with gaps) which provides little in the way of modesty and you are required to place toilet paper in a bin, not the WC, which for a modern complex appears a little outdated. Is this usual in Turkey?
The staff throughout were clean, polite and helpful and the catering provided a great range of food to suit all tastes. The A La Carte option is well worth a visit.
This was our first visit to Turkey and we will return again but not to the Isil.
