Omar Hotel
Ranked #15 of 24 Hotels in Torba
Reviewed 15 June 2013

We stayed here for a couple of days and I highly recommend this hotel. Service was excellent, staff was really friendly. The hotel offers a rather deep swimming pool and owns a large strip of beach. Breakfast was wonderful with fresh cheese, olives, tomatoes and cucumbers, fresh bread and jams.

The only negative point about this hotel is its neighboring resorts which are rather loud on certain nights. Otherwise, village offers a few convenience stores, a few restaurants and a bus that drives you for 3 Turkish lira (1.50 dollars) to Bodrum's city center.

between quality, location and service. Its not the most luxurious which is ok with me but the other things were almost perfect. Really is a great value and comfortable. I have to say the breakfast is pretty disappointing but really the only downside.

Room Tip: Insist on airconditioning in both rooms.

Didn't stay here but a helpful member of staff showed me one of the rooms. All have sea views and although quite basic, very clean, good sized bathroom with shower (no bath), covered balcony and even a fridge and 2 hob for basic cooking. The big plus about this small hotel is it's location. A beautiful pool with covered toddler's pool area, big comfy cushions and lovely sunbeds. Staff are very friendly especially Hussein . The all day dining cafe is elevated with the most beautiful views of Torba Bay. We ate here a few times and although the menu is not a la carte it is good value for money. Would definitely consider staying here next time we visit. Hussein who is one of the waiters is extremely friendly (in fact they all were) and nothing too much trouble. We tried out our limited (very) Turkish on him!

just back from Torba, had good holiday but if it had been my first trip to turkey I probably wouldn't rush back. Resort lovely, very picturesque. A must visit is to Olivia at night on the beach, very laid back and great food. Why is the wine always so overpriced in Turkish restaurants? Hotel very friendly but we had an apartment below people who wore shoes and walked around a lot late at night and early in the morning!! The cafe below the hotel played very loud music and you could hear club voyage's music late into the night. Turkish people as always were wonderful.

we stayed here in june 2008 and loved every minute of it .Situated within a small unspoilt fishing village there is very little to do except swim and sunbathe and considering the weather was 47 degrees thats exactly what we did.the hotel is clean and pretty with fantastic views of the long winding harbour and there are a few choice fish restaurants,bodrum is vey accessible via dolmus which stops just outside the hotel as is gumbet (IF YOU FANCY SOME NIGHTLIFE) all in all a very lovely place for couples looking for a relaxing sun kissed holiday.The food available within the hotel was very varied and reasonably priced except for the english breakfast...... we have booked to go back next year and cant wait.

My husband and I stayed at the Omar for 12 days at the beginning of June 08. The hotel is in a beautiful setting with all rooms overlooking the bay. The lay out does not give the impression of a hotel but a small village with stone steps connecting the whitewashed buildings that contrast against the perfect blue sky and sea with exotic flowering plants dotted around. The restaurant consists of tables and chairs on the shady patio, a stones throw away from the sea across a lane, where you can watch the boats come and go and locals amble up and down the street. There is also a very adequate pool and sun loungers, pool bar and a small gravelly beach with more loungers and shallow safe swimming in crystal clear water. Rooms are spacious with a large lounge, small kitchen area, and balcony; air conditioned bedroom and bathroom/shower. The facilities are basic but clean and comfortable. The kitchen area is not really suitable for full self catering but good to prepare a simple lunch. Locally are a few shops and a number of restaurants specialising in fresh fish.
We booked directly through the hotel via family members in Turkey who negotiated a very good deal at this quieter time of the year. The hotel owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel offers excellent value for money. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis. Breakfast is typically Turkish, bread, cheese, tomato, cucumber, olives, jam and honey. Coffee only is included. This may not be to everyone’s taste, and we were craving cornflakes after 12 days! Other breakfast items are available from the menu though.
Small minibuses run into Bodrum every few minutes which is just 10 minutes away. The fare is 2TL (80p) one way. From Bodrum you can pick up other local buses to explore the peninsular. I highly recommend taking a boat trip from Torba to visit quiet bays ideal for snorkelling. Look out for Captain Okay Dokey and his boat who offers good value trips with lunch included. His boat is moored close to the hotel. There are also boat trips and boats for hire from Bodrum. I do not recommend taking any organised bus tours. These generally give you a poor impression of Turkey taking you to 'rip off' restaurants designed for tourists, giving you little time to see the sites you paid for, instead forcing you to visit gold centres, carpet factories etc where your tour guide gets commission. All of this is not mentioned when you book the trip.
Visiting in early June really was one of the best times to go to the Bodrum peninsular. I imagine that the end of the season in September would also be good. The hotel was quiet, beaches fairly empty and the weather around 85 with guaranteed sunshine and sea breezes. From late June until end of August the Turkish school holidays and more visitors from overseas means that this area becomes very crowded. It can also get stiflingly hot.
The only downside of staying at the Omar was the noisy 'All inclusive' hotel complex down the road which spoiled the peaceful atmosphere at times.
We would highly recommend the Omar at this time of year for a quiet relaxed holiday and as a base for exploring this beautiful peninsular by car, boat and using local transport. It may not be suitable for those with young children who require activities and theme parks or those looking for lively nightlife, although this is close by in Bodrum.
