My friends and I booked a last minute holiday here and we weren't disappointed.
The hotel is only 35 minutes away from Bodrum airport and although we didn't go into Bodrum itself its only 15 minutes away from the hotel by taxi.
The hotel is guarded by security gates and a guard but he gave us a nice wave on the way in.
On arrival we where met by very friendly bell boys who immediately couldn't do enough for us, greeted us all and helped us with our cases and watched them as we checked in at reception.
The lobby was incredible and gave a good impression from the off, very clean and comfortable.
Again the receptionist was very friendly and made us feel at home almost right away, he explained the meal hours, the bar hours and gave us all towel cards and the room card, the bellboys then took us to our room which was in the main building only 1 floor down, we gave them a small tip and they seemed extremely happy.
The room was very good standard, again very clean and tidy, we have one room with two single beds and a large king sized bed in the living area, both rooms had air conditioning as well.
The bathroom was acceptable with everything in there including clean towels and shower and body gel.
The only downside was the shower wasn't great as it was one of these that you pulled the leaver up and the shower came on and if it was down the bath ran, the leaver didn't work great which meant you got half bath half shower but we just dealt with it, and tbh if we had said something in confident they would've sorted it very quickly.
The balcony had a beautiful view overlooking the sea.
The cleaners where in everyday and always had a smile on there faces and replaced the towels, made the beds and gave the floors a quick once over.
The meals where acceptable, Breakfast consisted of cereals, some hot selections (no bacon or sausage) and continental choices of cheese, breads etc.
Lunch again was ok, soups, breads, chips, spaghetti, many other choices of hot food.
At dinner time they had a BBQ going outside where the cooked, chicken, burgers, chicken wings which where all very tasty, you also had hamburgers and plenty more options inside.
As with most all inclusive hotels the options where basically the same everyday, but food was acceptable and I never went hungry.
It's worth noting that there are other restaurants, a kebab house, and Italian and a fish restarting but due to us going before the season started these weren't open yet.
The main pool area was excellent, plenty sun loungers, there was also a quiet pool near the lobby which was also very nice with plenty sun loungers.
The aqua park area was only open certain times but this may have been due to the time of season we went.
There is no beach, when we booked I saw pictures of a beach, there isn't one. But there is a beautiful veranda and decking out on the water, the sea was beautifully clear and it was truly a piece of paradise.
There was a nice bar just up from the sea, they done snacks and cold drinks, Tamir that works there was amazing, so friendly, always said hello and asked how we where and really made our holiday, give that man a bonus.
The evening entertainment wasn't great, but again this may have been due to the time of year, kids disco from 8-9 was great for the little ones but then we had to endure the same man playing the same songs on guitar every night, nearly every song sounded the same but we made the most of it by making our own entertainment.
There is an open air disco but again due to the time of year it wasn't open yet.
Drinks where good and there was no time limit on the all inclusive drinks, the lobby bar was open 24hrs.
The spa was again fantastic, we had full use of the sauna and steam room, for other treatments there was a cost but that's to be expected.
We only paid £120 each for 4 days and 5 nights which was exceptional for what we got, from what I saw it's worth a lot more than that.
If you want a quiet, peaceful holiday go here in April, the temperature never went below 26 degrees and was comfortable in the evening, there was no clambering for sun beds at the sea or pool. It will probably be much busier in the height of season.
All in all I really can't speak highly enough of this hotel, friendly staff, good atmosphere and for the money we paid you'll not find anywhere as good a standard for near that price.
Already looking to book to go again.
