Sandima 37 Hotel Bodrum

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We have literally just got back from a weeks stay at this lovely hotel - I cannot say anything more than has already been written - all I can do is recommend it - the rooms are fab ( we will book the honeymoon suite next time as it was gorgeous ), the service cannot be faulted and the food excellent - do have a meal in the bar area as it is like having your own private dining room.

Thank you Kenan, Murat and team - see you soon!

Don't know what I can say that hasn't been said before. Our room was spotless, we were in room 5 and it is perfect for a couple. The garden is just beautiful, very well maintained and a wonderful place to relax. The service was, as before, amazing, nothing is too much trouble. Must give a special mention for Murat, he panders to your every need,always with a smile! Kenan is the perfect host, thank you.
Must mention the new marina, well worth a visit, try the steak house, fabulous.

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel. More like a home in some ways.
Food was outstanding and served on your private balcony.
Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times.
When they saw it was my birthday, from my passport details, the birthday cake arrived with candles and sparkler.
When we pointed out the hardness of Turkish beds, the staff immediately brought a sof bed topper to make the bed most comfortable for our aging bones.
Loved the flat rooftop for photographs of the sunsets.
Also did an excellent BBQ on the Friday - loved the starters

I would like to see extractor fans in the bathrooms, but otherwise can't fault this hotel. Highly recommended to anyone.

The cheese eating cat will come to say hello at every breakfast.

My wife (who was pregnant at the time) and me happily echo all of the positives that have gone before. Sandima 37 is the perfect place to relax and soak up the excellent Turkish hospitality. The rooms are modern and immaculate, the hotel facilities - whilst somewhat limited - are just what you need to unwind. Service was very attentive and the food was excellent, including the cakes that were provided for free at afternoon tea.

Older guests and those with prams might struggle with the walk down to Bodrum town (lack of proper pavements) but a cab only takes a few seconds and occasionally you might be able to hitch a lift with Kenan. Worth bearing in mind though.

We have only docked Sandima the elusive 5th star because of an unfortunate incident on the penultimate day when we were asked to vacate our room one day early, on the understanding that we could take the executive suite in consideration. We were less than impressed to have fully packed our bags and only then been told that the room switch would not in fact take place. It was a shame for that to have been mis-handled right at the end of our holiday because up until then the service from the whole team had been absolutely brilliant.

Nevertheless we can heartily recommend this hotel

Sandima 37 is a great place to stay if you're on the Bodrum Peninsula. The hotel is situated near the entrance to the small town of Yali. The restaurants and waterfront are a short walk away, down a fairly steep hill.

The property is very well maintained and in excellent condition. The rooms were modern, clean and large. We had booked the garden room, but moved to one of the upstairs suites upon arrival, as it was considerably nicer. The garden room would have been fine though. The hotel is set up to maximize privacy (although the footprint is quite small), with sitting areas spread around the garden.

The real surprise was the food, as dinner at the hotel ended up being one of our best meals in Bodrum. The staff really west out of their way to personalize our stay - breakfast and dinner served on our balcony, tea and cake in the afternoon, and more.

We would gladly stay here again if back in the area!

Room Tip: Go for one of the upper floor suites as the view out is spectacular!

Found the Sandima on Tripadvisor and what a find. View, food, service, ambience, pool, cat, rose petals on bed, rooms, and the rest. From the boss Kenan, through the 'waiter' Murat to everyne else working in this tiny hotel, nothing is too much. They even got my straw hat restitched. First reaction was 'main road' site but it's as if it has its own brand of quiet solitude. And don't be put off by the razzmatazz of the town. Sandima is a cut above Yalikavak and handy for the smarter Bodrum, an exquisite town. Go and take a look at Sandima's website and you'll be sold.....

Room Tip: Go for a good balcony: honeymoon suite especially for a night time eye feast

Mrs Nite-tripper & I spent a very relaxing week in the Honeymoon Suite in early September. We can only reiterate the comments made previously - this a truly magical place. The honeymoon suite was modern in style, beautifully appointed & very spacious with fantastic views out to sea from the balcony - perfect for watching the sunset! Kenan & Murat will go above and beyond to ensure your stay is relaxing & enjoyable - both very friendly, highly attentive & consummate professionals. We dined here five evenings in the beautiful lantern-lit garden & the food was very good (especially the steak!) & the ambience was truly wonderful. The tranquil garden & pool area has plenty of sun loungers & shaded areas for relaxing - needless to say, we didn't venture too far (other than a Turkish bath & boat trip!) If you're looking for a small intimate place to fully unwind in beautifully serene surroundings - you've just found it! Steve & Kelly

Room Tip: Honeymoon & Executive suites have the best sea views & more privacy
