There appears to be a bit of confusion with the past couple of reviews. One reviewer seems to be taking about the Lavanta Hotel, based in Turunc (small resort near Marmaris) and the others seem to be talking about a resort near Bodrum. Anyway, I personally stayed at Lavanta based in Turunc which was a great hotel with lovely, well presented rooms with stunning views over Turunc Bay. The hotel was classed as a boutique hotel as only has 13 rooms and it was a refreshing change to be in somewhere so small and personal. Service is excellent and the owners certainly make you feel at home. The breakfast is first class, and the theme evenings well worth it. The big negative about this place is the WASPS!!! Yes, you cannot get 5 mins peace without a wasp buzzing about your head or trying to hide in your drink. It appears that they have a real wasp problem here and while this may not be a problem for some my wife is totally [--]scared of them, so we did not hang about the pool area much, and breakfast was a quick affair. Also, as the hotel is built into the hillside there is a very step descent and/or climb to the village of Turunc. Although, the walk down in early evening while the sun is setting is very pleasant stroll (although watch out for the crazy Turk drivers!!). The village has a good choice of restaurants and is fairly quiet after dark. Overall my wife and I spent a very enjoyable and relaxing week at Lavanta. One word of warning though, don’t bother going to the nearby resort of Marmaris as you will to be hassled by hundreds of restaurant and bar owners – What a hole of a place!!
