“Really is as nice as it looks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Just returned (last night) from the la Blanche and as I said in my title it really is as nice is it looks. The location is perfect and the hotel setting is fab. We visited all the a la carte restaurants and they were all really good, the Italian a la carte has a charge of €10 per person but it is well worth it you can have 6 courses if you want! Lots to do I if you want to but equally as nice to relax also the pool area is lovely and so is the jetty beach area . Staff work really hard the place is absolutely spotless, if you want a boat trip see Billy the boatman he is really nice, the boat goes from the hotel it is a little bit more expensive than catching the boat from the harbour, only a few pounds, but it is well worth it because only hotel guests go and the boat doesn't get crowded. If I really had to find fault it would just be that there isn't much choice of food in the main restaurant but we visited the a la carte restaurants and also the beach restaurants and snack bar at lunchtime have a great choice so there's plenty elsewhere, another thing I would like to comment on would be the smoking of other guests whilst you are eating!!!!!! Really annoying so perhaps the hotel could maybe have an outside no smoking area. So all in all a lovely time was had by all . We holiday regularly to Turkey and don't normally go back to the same place only reason being is that there are so many places to see but we are definitely going to go back to la Blanche ! My advise to anyone would be check it out well worth a visit you'll love it.

Room Tip: We upgraded to superior rooms well worth it.

We visited La Blanche for the third time last month. We went earlier than usual to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.

We contacted Anastaysia prior to our visit and requested a nice room and, wow, we certainly got one. We were upgraded to a family room with a beautiful view of pool and sea. Arrived to find balloons in the room and later received fruit, delicious chocolates and a bottle of wine.

The hotel has improved immensely since our last visit and we already thought we had found perfection.

Three of the waiters, who had since been promoted to Captains, remembered us. The food was varied and plentiful. Suited both my husband who is a meat eater and myself, a vegetarian. The inside area of the main restaurant, which often was described as a canteen, had been greatly improved with much softer lighting. There was also added space to the outside area to watch the amazing sunsets. We never had to wait for a table, plates were always cleared away promptly, and we were ALWAYS greeted with a smile and asked to "enjoy our meal!"

Never once had to reserve a sunbed. Space at the pool usually got filled but we preferred the quietness of the jetty and there was plenty of room to move beds around in the direction of the sun. Could even 'bed hop' if we wanted to - there was so much space!

As the weather was a bit on the cool side in the evening, the entertainment was held inside. Never before have we seen such a hard working and talented animation team. They worked their socks off to provide such good entertainment. We did feel sorry for them though because not many people could be bothered to go to watch the shows in the downstairs boardroom. We were therefore subjected to karaoke and bingo in the bar on two occasions. It's ok Adam we have forgiven you!

We believe that the hotel was only about 60 per cent full at the time and the British were certainly in the minority. Not a bad thing though and everyone seemed to be enjoying their holiday side by side. There seemed to be a lot of three generation families this time.

The Thomsons's rep, Michelle, is a real asset to the hotel. She was warm and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. She went out of her way to find my husband an English book and even loaned us the use of her i pad to look up an article we need to read about.

Anastaysia at Guest Relations also has to have a special mention. She was genuinely interested in speaking with us and to get our feedback since our last visit.

We would have liked to have booked the Italian restaurant for our wedding anniversary but we were not brave enough to sit outside in the 'breeze' We chose instead to sit inside the main restaurant. When the Captain found out it was our wedding anniversary he reserved a table for us to make sure we got the best view of the sunset.

The a la carte restaurants can be booked between 10 and 12 at Guest Relations. We only ate at the Chinese restaurant because we preferred the variety of the buffet in the main restaurant.

There are two a la carte restaurants at lunch time - the Italian and the Chinese. These are well worth a visit but the times are not advertised unless you ask. The Chinese (don't expect Chinese though!) was open from 12.30 to 2.30 and the Italian was open from 1.30 to 3.30. Well worth a visit to both.

The shop downstairs only sells the Sun newspaper. The man said no-one requests the Mail but we did and so did several other guests we spoke with. Any way, if you go out of the main entrance and turn left then take the first turning on the left, walk towards the Aegean dream hotel you will find a shop that sells all English newspapers.

The only criticism we could find with the hotel was the paparazzi. There seemed to be photographers everywhere. When we were last at La Blanche there was only one photographer - now there are five, snapping away at every opportunity.

We think what makes this hotel so great is the staff. Without exception, everyone was extremely professional and courteous. Sorry we can't name you all!

Already looking to see when we can book again for next year. Think we may have to hurry though because nearly everyone we spoke with said they wanted to return - and why wouldn't they? It doesn't get any better. Thank you everyone at La Blanche for making our holiday so special.

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to send me a message. I will be more than happy to help.

My man and I stayed at La Blanche during the 20th of may intil the 27th.
The hotel has a wonderfull location, near by the little city Turgut, where there are local bars, markets, a beautiful marine and little stores. You can take the boat to Kos (Greece) or take a local bus to Bodrum City.

The hotel is big, has a private beach, 5 separate restaurants. There is a vatiety of food, all of good quality. The rooms are clean and big, a little old fashion. But it doesn't bother.

All staff, cleaners, staff at the reception, staff at the bar or in the restaurants are all so friendly and helpfull.

The atmosphere which is created makes La Blanche a wonderfull place to spend your holiday

It was our first time in Turkey and although the weather wasn't great to start the hotel made up for that.
It was spacious and with plenty of facilities. Lovely and clean and the service was good.
It's great to have a choice of bars not just the one as there was a main bar near the buffet restaurant and a sports bar on the lower floor. Also there's a bar and snack bar outside but under cover next to the pool. The drinks are really good too for all inclusive.
There's a choice of restaurants too. The al a carte restaurants have to be booked on the day you wish to go to them with guest relations. We only tried the Turkish one as we only stayed a week and as the weather wasn't that good to start some of the restaurants weren't open. It was lovely and so filling. Couldn't manage a pudding as they give you so much bread.
The hotel has it's own beach that is enclosed with plenty of sun beds and a large wooden jetty with lots of sun beds on too.
It's just out of Turgutreis with a 10 to 15 minute walk along the sea front to the town. The town has a good variety of shops bars and restaurants and a must do is the market on a Saturday. Make sure you haggle for a bargain.
You can catch a bus to lots of different places from the town and they are really cheap.
We tried the spa one day which is lovely and clean and relaxing. Mehmet runs the spa and it is a credit to him.
Lastly got to mention The Thomson rep here. Michelle. She is so friendly and really knows her stuff. Got loads to tell you and great advice. Got to say one of the best reps that we have had.

Room Tip: If you want a sea view you need a higher floor as the lower ones may look into the restaurants and w...

Been to this hotel a couple of years ago with my family and friends, first impression was wow, just loved the look of it and where it was situated. Family rooms were large & modern, and had a wonderful pool view, which always makes us happy. Loved the eating area, where we sat out on a terrace for breakfast, with amazing views. Also at nights sat on the jetty watching the sun go down,was so beautiful. Overall would defiantly recommend this hotel had a fantastic time.

Room Tip: Actually think most rooms seem to be facing the very large pool

We stayed here in 2008 - and we loved the resort . Then it was a little expensive but worth every penny - so we went back this year to see if the kids would enjoy it... Again it was a little expensive - again - it was worth every single penny !

Amazing hotel - lovely staff - perfect weather - clean - for couples or family - and the best setting in Turkey ... The views are stunning !

We upgraded to a sea view room ( triple balcony ) and it is a perfect view. The food here is the best we have ever had in an all inclusive hotel ( that's six years of them ) - the staff - I can't tell you of one member of staff who were in any way unhelpful. last time my kids were young - now aged 14 and 17 they are at that difficult age - they have asked to book again for next year. My son is hyper active and at any time there are two or three activities to choose from. they even managed to get my daughter playing water polo ! . My husband joined in in the end and I sat back and watched from a distance - happy that I didn't feel I had to .. Plenty of sun beds - towels changed as and when. Drinks and food all day and night - even a snack at 12.00 midnight. The entertainment int he evening is for family's and we found it corny - the kids loved it more than we did but each of us laughed at something - they are working really hard to please . We gave our favourite waiter a tip before leaving and he was so delighted - he clearly didn't expect anything although had been the perfect waiter for the week. If you have a family - any aged children - this is worth every single penny. Well done La blanche - and happy birthday ! ( 9 years - amazing ) ..

Room Tip: Sea View - as long as you have a sea view

Been to Turgutreis twice before but stayed at Ageanen Dream. La Blanche is a nicer hotel and glad we stayed here for our fortnights holiday in May 2014. One or two issues regarding tim e at which our room was cleaned but Michelle the Thomson rep soon sorted it for us .Brilliant animation team especially Adam and Osmon.Hoping to go back next year but Thomson you need to sort out more check in desks at bodrum Airport. Only two desks to process passengers. was waiting In queque for 1 hour 45 mins. only had time for toilets before boarding.on the whole a lovely holiday.
