“Fantástica Stay”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Fantastic stay, friendly attendants, beautiful and nice place, great restaurant with an emphasis on Italian La Luce amazing food and service. Everything perfect, but do not need concierge, they really are not prepared to meet the customer! need the concierge a few times and were poorly attended, or rather, not served, but to stay more than 40 minutes to talk to them, and when he was to return our requests, he simply did not return. Outside the concierge everything was perfect, could have used a bit more, but as the structure, pool, beach, spa, everything perfect and fantastic! Speaking of SPA does not cease to make Turkish bath and a simply unforgettable aromatic massage! I recommend if you like luxury and sophistication but do not need the concierge, because the site concierge is really too bad!

Room Tip: ask for room on the fifth floor facing the sea, beautiful view quiet nights

A great resort for summer holidays. The staff were wonderful and the beach was excellent. It has 2 beaches, the quiet beach for people who want to relax without children and the other, which is close to the beach restaurant, with great food. A MUST for someone who wants to go to Bodrum.

Room Tip: The villas are great for families but you need to be transported by a golf style cart.

This Hotel didn't match any of our expectations. For paying an extraordinary price one would expect that the hotel offers a luxurious and pleasant stay. Well the opposite is the case...
The arrival was very comfortable with our rental car we didn't have any problems with this as one should expect. When entering the hotel however we were already very disappointed since the interior design looks as if it was a cheap four star hotel. No attention to detail was paid and it seems as if there was no clear design concept. Coming from the D-Hotel Maris, which was an extraordinary stay in a comparable price segment we expected a similar standard and that just wasn't the case. The worst was the Service. Barely anyone could speak proper english and when ordering a drink at dinner or lunch they would just forget about it. (That happened every time) There was way to little staff and it was badly trained. The hotel staff higher in order just made the impression of feeling a little to secure about themselves and it didn't seem a necessity for them to care properly about their guests. The food was ok for a five star hotel but costs way too much. The pool looked like any pool in a Robinson club nothing special and again one would expect more. The most horrific place of the hotel however was an elevator leading down to the sea. It was basically rotten and completely unacceptable. The only thing that would make a stay worthwhile is the view which is indeed very good. We had two suites with sea view balconies. The rooms themselves weren't really up to the standard but not bad either.
To sum up: The hotel is a place we wouldn't recommend to anyone. It's view is good but there are other hotels with a better view and I am sure that they offer you a better around experience. We were really happy when we left and certainly aren't considering another stay.

Stayed at the hotel for the third time in the past five years. Having visited many nice hotels/resorts throughout the world, it would be hard to find a better place. The hotel is clean, the rooms are beautiful, the pool is magnificent, the beach is wonderful (and includes a adult only area if you are looking for some quiet time), the views are outstanding and the spa is world-class. There are several restaurants at the hotel that offer a wide variety of excellent selections. The staff is outstanding and very attentive to your needs. In particular, should you have any problems, the Assistant Front Desk Manager (Mr. Ali Cetiner) is tremendous at helping the guests.

Room Tip: If possible, try to upgrade to a room with a view of the sea - it is well worth the upcharge.

The hotel is very nice and it is in a beautiful place. The location not only is nice but it allows you to visit many other nice places, including Ephesus by driving about 3 hours. The pool is amazing and the beach very nice. It's very quiet.
The restaurants, namely the Saigon is good but others too much expensive.

By all means this is a very nice hotel, cannot complain, the pool is amazing, the view is great, the beach is nice, rooms are fantastic, so stop your search and book this hotel immediately, but it's a bit far from down town, but why do u care, you will not leave this hotel any minute.
