“Generally Outstanding but a Few Weaknesses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2010

Recommended by our Turkish travel agent as a great place to relax after 22 days in Bodrum, Gardens of Babylon is new and utterly beautiful. Our king suite was richly furnished with the best quality fixtures and appointments. The grounds are stunning and the view fantastic.

Multiple swimming pools (indoors and outdoors) at various temperatures and excellent spa and exercise areas. Part botique hotel, part residence, part residential rentals and part "fat farm"--a very interesting conceptual mix...

Minor annoyances prevent me from giving an "excellent" rating to this ******* resort.

While the materials, art and appointments are of the best quality, the workmanship is rather shoddy in places. The wireless internet service is slow and intermittent while the wired connection (at least in my suite) did not function. The grounds are beautifully maintained, but none of the many waterfalls functioned with most looking as though they stopped quite some time ago. The private sandy beach is beautiful, but stayed littered with much seaweed from heavy waves many days before.

The staff is attentive, helpful and friendly but some are not especially competent. Our dinner orders never seemed to be correct. We would get things we did not order, receive the improper entree, not receive things we did order, etc. The bill however always included everything--whether or not we received--and rarely agreed with the food we received. After three very long holidays in Turkey, this was not a communication problem nor have we ever encountered this before at any hotel at any price in Turkey.

It is these minor anoyances that prevents me from giving value and service ratings higher than average for this very expensive hotel. My excellent ratings are what you would expect for a hotel of this class.

this hotel is one of the best that I have stayed so far. our room had beautiful views of the sea and the islands as well as a private garden. rooms are very well equipped and include 2 bathrooms- one with jacuzzi. sea is clean, the beach is not overcrowded. the beach restaurant (Elani) is highly recommended: tables on the beach, great Greek mezes, excellent waiters and hearing the sound of waves- unforgettable! overall, I did rest very well and recommend this hotel to everyone without reservation.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2009

We were fortunate to have booked the Kadikale resort and Spa to find it was over booked when we arrived. We were whisked off in a leather lined Limo to the 7 star, newly opened Gardens of Babylon, next door.
We had the pleasure of a Penthouse, equipped will all mod cons including a fully equipped kitchen, with a washing machine, dishwasher, iron and board, Huge fridge freezer, 3 ensuite bedrooms 2 LCD flatscreen Huge TV's and wireless internet connection. A dressing room and a whirlpool bath in one suite. A Garden fully equipped with sunloungers, tables and chairs.
The facilities in the hotel were exceptional and we seemed to have sole use of them first off. The private beach we were alone on for 2 days. The sunbeds had 4 inch thick cream matresses. We loved it and who couldnt. I did hear the lift got stuck a few times, but it didnt effect us. The views were breathtaking. The beach was secure, so no one could enter.
