“Very good for four star!”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

overall our stay in Latanya was very good. We liked a lot the hotel. Room was so comfy, may be not so big but we liked it a lot due to good and wide bathroom and super comfy bed.
The food was not so good. I saw how every morning they fried pan cakes in dirty stew pan which means they do not wash it every day after cooking. Soups were not good at all. Croissant were served every day but every day we found them not fresh. I am fan of cofee and it was very difficult to stay 7 days without strong flavour cofee. There are number of self served nescafe cofee machine but half of it was water.
So if you have cofee mania/addiction you need to pay for glass of turkish cofee 5 tl every time.
Still you can find good BBQ and salads,cheeses every day.
During our stay last three days weather was very bad and rainy. The hotel should have more closed places. There is only one closed area which is lobby area near receiption. Around 8/12 sofas. It was difficult to find nice place to read a book. Most of meals were served near pool in open restaurant so during thunderstorm and rain we did not get any food from 2-7 p.m no entertainment all these rainy days.
But for money we paid I think it is best 4 star otel which is a little far away from city center( around 40 mints by car).
We checked some 5 star hotels in the center (New Port Bodrum Hotel,Royal Arena Hotel)they all were horrible and dirty. So Latanya is best four star hotel and good for paid money I think.

I spent a lovely 2 weeks here with my husband from 14th-28th September.

The location is great, beautiful area and lovely clear deep sea to swim in. Great location for snorkeling - lots of fish :)

The room was quite small and basic, but perfect for us. The room was cleaned, towels changed and the fridge topped up with bottled water every day. The room was air conditioned, which was lovely as it was so hot. Also the room had a safe, which you don't need to pay extra for. There is a hair dryer, but ladies unless your hair is very short or thin, bring your own as you could be there for hours drying your hair. Another nice thing was there is dove hand wash and shampoo/conditioner in the bathroom. Our balcony was tiny so it was only good for hanging out towels and swimwear.

The hotel itself is very good too. Staff were friendly and helpful. Lovely big pool and a small pool with little slides for kids. The hotel also had its own little shop, doctor, hair dressers, photographer and you could also get a massage :) You could also play table tennis near the pool.

We didn't have a lot of spare money, but we booked to go on the the all day boat trip, which was very relaxing. All inclusive drink and lunch were provided. You get told about all the different trips you can go on at your welcome meeting.

The beach was a bit rocky and gravelly, but there is a big deck that you can sunbathe on. Not a very good beach for children though.

The food was ok although it did get a bit boring after 2 weeks. There was always salad, bread, fruit and rice so there was always something to eat, but it was a little hit and miss. Chips are served for every meal! Food is available almost all the time as at the pool bar they did different snacks throughout the day like pizza and jacket potatoes.

In the evenings there was a disco for children which goes on for about half an hour, after this the entertainment team put on little shows at their ampitheatre which were a bit cheesy, but actually really funny at times. Just be careful not to get dragged onto the stage for their game shows if you're not a fan of the limelight. Even the bingo isn't safe. If you get a certain number you might be called on the stage to do a dance routine with the entertainment team!!!

The all inclusive drink selection is a little limited for some people, but it was fine for us. Local beer, wine, vodka, gin, whisky were all fine. The bar by the pool was open from about 10am to 11pm. After that the lobby bar was open til midnight. If you wanted to carry on later you could go to the disco bar, which we did a couple of times, but you have to pay for the drinks in there.

The only slight downside for me was the entertainment team. Nothing personal at all, they were really nice people who just wanted everyone to have fun, but for me I came on holiday to relax so it was a little irritating to have people trying to get you to do activities all day long. They start at 10am and work all day and all night. I'm sure for some people it's brilliant to do lots of activities, but it's not for everyone.

Overall we had a lovely time, very relaxing holiday with fantastic weather! :)

We were at Latanya Beach Resort from 12Th to 19Th September 2013 and we had a wonderful time there. The hotel is perfect located, offering a beautiful private beach and excellent pool. I would recommend the resort to all age groups. We are a family of 4 and our “children” are now 22 and 20 and they also have enjoyed Latanya immensely. The Resort is very pleasant, very clean, good food, great staff and superb animation team. There are plenty to do while at the resort but you can also do nothing at all and just relax by the beach. If you have a chance, book yourself a Balinese full body massage. Bodrum is only 30 minutes away and on Fridays and Tuesdays, just above the bus station there is an open market, were on Friday you can also find lots of spices, fruits, vegetables and much more, including beautiful leather sandals. It was a good mixture of guests from different counties, including Turkey, which made the Resort very cosmopolitan and interesting. The whole week was a great experience and I would not hesitate to book it again in the future!

One of the reasons for my review is that some wrote negative reviews based on their expectation and maybe price they paid (full , expensive price) What makes this hotel a Great choice is that , Location, Beach and most of all Animation Team which is there to make sure you are not bored or sad. I gave 5 starts here because to improve overall mark for the Hotel. But this Hotel has Pros and Cons too. PROS: *Animation Team, amazing Kids , dancing, jumping, smiling every day every hour. *Beach – super clear water with Lots of Fish and well equipped , including lifeguard. * 3 BARS, 2 Restaurants and Amphitheatre- for Small Hotel Resort it is a lot. * Pool – Clean and big with plenty of space to swim and stay around.
* Garden Like Park resort with buildings located in the well maintained Palm tree Park and green all around. BIG thank you to Amadeo, Marina and ALL animation team, Russian, Turkish and Italianos. MAX from Ukraine is a great Dancer and Professional team leader.
CONS: * DARK room – our room was very Dark and also no lights (only Lamps) , not good.* Room had a weird Smell from Toilet time to time, we complained and they did something , so it was not that bad after all. Internet (WI FI) is covered in most areas but It is Very , Very , Very Slow and Room had no WIFI at all. * Bar needs a Cocktail List for All Inclusive drinks because Barman just puts WHATEVER in the cocktails and it looks and tastes like chemical Attack. But Barman OMER was great he had his special cocktail which was nice ( one guy called it Omer Special) Staff Looks not very motivated when serving drinks. *Lack of English Speakers (except Animation Team and 2 guys in rotation in the Reception) * Hotel does not provide Transfers , even if you like to pay , all is organized by tour agents so not a very good 4 Star Hotel when reception Girls says no idea how to arrange transfer.
Conclusion: We enjoyed our stay. Merely because we had good activities with Animation Team, and we only used room to sleep. Beach and Pool and Food Was also not Bad at all (compared to what was expected from the reviews it was very nice always something to choose from) We would return in this Hotel but would advise Hotel Managers to improve based on the comments we place. Rooms, Service quality and Guest appreciation . This is what they need to concentrate .

Room Tip: Dont take ground floor rooms, They are Darker then other Dark rooms. Beach is nicer on right side, M...

I went on holiday to Latanya with my 15 year old sister and parents and I am 18. It was one of the best holidays I have been on in a long time, everything was perfect. All of the staff in reception were helpful and the bar staff were also very friendly and helpful.
There was always a large selection of hot food, salads and barbecued food, and it wasn't the standard food you get at other all inclusive hotels, it was clear that a lot of time went into preparing the food.
The pool was always clean, if a little cold at times, and the beach was lovely, the sea was some of the clearest sea I have ever swum in!
The room was great, the beds were comfortable and the maids came everyday, cleaned up and replaced the free bottled water in the fridge!
Finally the thing that made my holiday extra special was the animation team at the hotel, they were the most friendly bunch of people I have ever met, they really catered for everybody and made the holiday fun with activities such as water polo, beach volleyball and darts throughout the day! They were always enthusiastic! Amadeo, Dany, Luba, Marina, Nafiye, Sharon, Andrea, Sveta, Mete, Ilkan, Hursçit and Mambo were all absolutely fantastic and absolutely made my holiday! And you will fall in love with their personalities, I didn't want to leave latanya! I highly recommend this hotel.
