I decided I would treat my daughters and grand-daughters to an all inclusive holiday in an hotel that appeared to have everything for an enjoyable stay. Having requested a cot, on arrival in our room at 04 15 there was not one, nor was there bedclothes on the double bed. The cot was brought but no bedding for the cot or the bed! The room was hardly what you woud call clean. When my 6 year old grand daughter decided she would like to go for a swim the pool was freezing so we went to the indoor pool, which was also unheated. The water chutes were not open, the shops on site opened when it was convenient to them and there was no evening entertainment. With regard the food - well, if you were not one of the early evening eaters you would be unlucky if a popular dish ran out, that was it. It would not be replaced, just substituted for something else, eg. chicken all gone, replaced with pasta.

Our pickup was delayed so i asked if we could keep the room until 02.30 and was told this would cost another 100 euros. I pointed out that we had not arrived until 04 00 and was told the room had been ready from 12 00 (?bedding) I also mentioned we were the last holiday makers and that there would surely not be a rush to clean it but they would not oblige. As it was the last night, the staff had a party - the first entertainment we had seen/heard throughout our entire holiday.

Having writen to the holiday company in October, to date I have only received a letter acknowledging mine and it is now MARCH!

Be careful. What looked like it was going to be a wonderful holiday, turned out to be a nightmare.

We went towards the end of season after our other hotel wasn't actually open, but I'm glad we were put in this hotel, I had a superb time; so much better than the one we were planning on going to. The staff were great, really friendly willing to help with everything, my mum has a bad leg and they were very helpful with putting her and my dad on the bottom row and putting myself and my brother beside them with no hassle caused.

The animation team were really enjoyable with the shows they put on which I ended up being dragged on for a number of, was fun though. The food was really good, me and my brother would be very picky with our food but there was always loads of choice for us, and if you didn't like anything in the main restaurant the snack bar was open 12-5 so if we fancied a bit of home comforts we got some fries and hot dogs.

It's in a great location, not far from the airport and not far from Bodrum, was ideallic for me, hate being on buses for too long. The only thing was when it says beach, they mean decking, there is a small bit of a beach but its all pebbly so don't get your hopes up about that, the deckings great though with giant beanbags for comfort. I'm going back with my university friends this year, loved this place! Would fully recommend to everyone! Oh and if your one for the scenery you get some really great views!!!

This is a 5 star hotel by Turkish standards Enlish 2 1/2 - 3. Food is very bland, fresh cooking done every day but go early to avoid the queing. From the beach to my room 203 steps. Maid service not to bad rooms cleaned between 07:00 - 17:30. Rooms clean but mould around bath and shower enclousure. Restaraunt staff on average helpfull. Had a Turkish Massage on site but it was done by a tiny Asian lady but worth the money. Used the indoor pool the water was so cold even the Eskimo's refused to use it and the small jaccusi was cold had no /little power and the paint was flaking off the bottom. Quite a steep hill to and from the main road to get the local Dolmush to Bodrum depending on the day/time/driver some would drive down to drop or pick up passengers.

Not a five star three star plus at best
We were transfered here after the sabbia bitez inn closed three days into our stay in turkey ,on arrival we were given o room that you would have been good for a mountain goat up about six flights of stone steps after my wife hade a good talk to the manager we were given a room on the lower slopes which was still about forty steps up .
This complex is in a fantastic location with great views over the sea but is very isolated and you need to take the bus into town to get away from the complex .The food is awful i am not a funny eater but all the food served is cold and the choice is the same every day great if you can live on chicken and turkey for all the meals, they do cook fish and a bit of meat fresh but you need to stand in a long line of people and the german guests dont seen to know how to do this The room are clean and the maid was fantastic changing the towels every day and the beds about three times during our stay the bathroom has the usual amount of black mold around the shower basin there is pleanty of hot water but you need to run the shower for about five mins to got it .
The bar staff and restaraunt staff are excellent as are the animation team but the music is very loud.
The beach is only very small and can be reached by a very steep ramp or a lot of steps but fear not because they have a lift which takes you to the lower levels.
If you have no disabilitys , dont mind cold food ,loud music ,and beeing isolated this could be the place for you ( i will not be going again as i have asthma and the steps are a killer)

Back from the second stay at Blue Dreams, we enjoy the vacation.
The rooms was ok, but with some minor defects in bathroom and only a finish as a 3-4 star danish hotel.
Very good food and very serviceminded staff, always smiling. Nice and clean pool, but with very loud disco music most of the day.
The beach is not 5 star; there is no sand, only stones. During the week was two more canoes put on land with defects, totally 5 defect canoes on land and only 2 working. Thats too bad!
I looks like a generally problem on the turkish hotels, that they don't repair broken things.
We had 40 years wedding day and their guest relation manager has arranged a decorated table in the Kebab House with flowers, candlelights etc. Very nice and kindly girl.
I think we will come back.

After having a nightmare with our travel agent cancelling our two previous hotels - Delta Beach (1 week before we travelled) and Sabbia Inn, Bitez (on the minibus from the airport!) we were dropped off at Club Blue Dreams. Not knowing what to expect we were pleasantly surprised by the stunning seaview that met us. The only major drawback were the 94 steps to our room - we counted them one night as a challenge!- which was ok on arrival as a porter carried our suitcases but not fun on the day when we checked out with no help! The rooms are ok - not deluxe but perfectly clean and adequate but the balcony was quite small . Unfortunately the rooms at the back of the hotel are by the noisy and busy main road to Bodrum. If you struggle walking then definitely request one of the lower rooms. The views from the hotel are absolutely stunning, with the most wonderful sunsets over the sea every evening. The bars were very nice - especially the pool bar where the staff worked worked hard and were very friendly. The beer is cold and on tap, but the red & white wine are a bit iffy but ok when drinking with dinner. I highly recommend asking for a pink cocktail (with alcohol) - it became my tipple for the week! The main buffet restaurant is very nice and clean and again the staff worked hard but I would say the food is aimed at the German/Dutch market with lots of sauerkraut etc. The hot food certainly wasn't that hot, but most of it tasted nice. We were certainly getting a bit bored after a week. though. But the other a la carte restaurants are worth a visit and have lovely views of the sea. There is no beach but the jetties to sunbathe on are very nice as the pool music can be a bit noisy at times. The staff are lovely and we can't wait to go back next year as the weather is perfect at this time of year (26 to 27 degrees). This hotel is well worth a visit and we had a great time!

Hi stayed at Club Blue Dreams in early October ,Weather fine mid 20's to low 30's
The Hotel is good though i would recommend asking for a first ,second or fourth floor room ,the rooms are terraced up a hill side with quite a few step,s & third floor rooms look at the back of the second floor rooms so no view , these floors all have great views across the bay
Drinks are ok ,with the usual large measures ! but expensive if you pay ,after midnite (12 lira for a whiskey =£ 5 )
The food i could not fault ,allways something to eat for any one the wife's a bit parky & even she stuffed her face ( the step's help work it off ! )
The pools are great , but get down early for the main jetty (Germans with beach towels ) the bean bags are great
On the whole i had a great time
