This was our second visit to this hotel, having stayed in 2011 and enjoyed it so much that we came back. Situated in a beautiful bay just far enough from the noise and nightlife of Bodrum but near enough if you do want to go there to sample the experience!
Small, family run with fabulously attentive staff, we enjoyed this stay just as much as our previous visit. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to one of the sea view suites which was lovely with a huge jacuzzi and amazing views.
Our 4 year old stayed on a large sofa bed and you could easily have 2 small children in the same room/suite rather than incur costs of extra rooms.
The little beach area which is safe for kids as well as 2 pools which our little one was rarely out of. Also an art club for kids keeps them busy and let's parents have some relaxation!
Being objective, The only drawbacks were -
Some communication problems as some of the waiters grasp of English is not great.
The menus never change and could offer a wider range of healthier options
Some suggestions to the management:
You have a great beach bar which is underused - how about a happy hour for cocktails at 6pm
How about having a couple of spare push chairs that guests with young ones could borrow
These are minor issues overall and did not detract from our enjoyment
Outside of the hotel, I recommend a trip to the new marina at Yalikavak - we had dinner at Cipriani (see separate review) and going to the Marina Club in Bodrum for an evening meal - few tourists, great food at excellent prices.
In summary, a great hotel, in an excellent location - especially for families looking for something a little more upscale than the traditional package style hotel offerings - and one I highly recommend.
