Spent a day here while on a cruise stop at Bodrum. So this review covers the grounds, beach, pool and restaurant, not the hotel rooms. That said, I'd bet the guest rooms are great too! This is a special property. The giant pool/s overlooks the sea and the pool deck area never feels crowded. The service at the pool was top notch. I got up to lower the umbrella and before I could even get it down an attendant was right there to do it for us.
While a walk to the beach takes a few mins from the hotel/pool area the views on the hike alone make it worth it the steep walk down. The hotel offers golf cart service up/down from the beach but we opted to walk it! The beach service is just as good as by the pool. Again, attendants came by with complimentary refreshments some type of iced coffee frape drink, and are always close by for ordering anything you may want. The beach itself is ok, but the water is some of the cleanest, clearest water I've ever seen - anywhere in the world!
The beach front open aired restaurant was excellent. Had some of the freshest fish of the trip and a mezze plate that was delicious and very authentic.
The grounds are immaculate with lush landscaping. If I'm ever back in Turkey - I'd stay here or at another Kempinski property without a second thought.
The hotel is a bit off the beaten path so if you want lots of action outside the hotel or get bored with the same place you may want to look elsewhere or rent a car.
