Myself and my family stayed for eleven days in August .I must comment on the breakfasts which I thought were a disgrace.All we got was bread a few jams melon tea or coffee or fruit juice.However if you paid 6 lire you could have scrambled eggs on toast .Why should you pay extra when it should be included in the breakfast price? The hotel is very basic and certainty needs a refurbishment . It is situated near shops and beach .I definitely will not be going back next year.
The other complaint is that if you go with Thomas cook which we did we got of the plane to see a rep who handed us our departure time and a bit of info about turkey but the whole holiday they did not visit the hotel once which was disgraceful and we got excursions but no one to book them with except for a number on the wall to ring but we wanted someone to talk to as we had no clue about the area and what dangers there were and then again we got picked up to go home and not once did a rep come with us, we got dropped at the airport and had no clue where to go as there was no rep in sight, we were with 4 other couples and none of us had a clue where to go. Thomas Cook gave us a horrendous service and were very unhelpful.
We had room 232 which was rather small but a great view but the room itself was quite dirty with a shower which was a hole with some curtains which made the bathroom very wet and a keycard holder which fell but it was suitable to get changed and sleep in.
Fahri was very helpful when booking excursions aswll as getting advice from and the 2 young boys work extremely hard doing everything form maintance to breakfast to cleaning. Maids came every day which was great.
On the bright side Turgutreis has a variety of shops and restaurants and staff extremely friendly, I highly recommend Uncles, Hassans place and the Codfather as these serve lovely meals at reasonable prices and there staff will go to whatever measure to make sure your meal is perfect. Beach very good service with sunbeds being 20 lira for 2 and free drinks and the staff at the beach are so very friendly and pleasant.
Saturday market is massive and they do really good deals to get fake clothes and shoes.
Bitez dindrum do extremely good waffles and ice creams.
Dolmus to Bodrum just down the road which is much livelier and more varied shops.
Overall I would recommend Turgutreis for a short break but it is a dying town which the population has decreased but overall had a good holiday and the people made it really good as they were ever so friendly and helpful and would like to thank the beach guys, blondie from uncles and Hassan for excellent meals.
Loads of stray dogs around!
Overall enjoyable holiday apart from the Thomas cook service and run down hotel!
