One of Turkey’s most picturesque resorts, Bodrum occupies a scenic spot on a hillside on the Aegean coast, set between two busy harbours where private yachts vie for moorings with tour boats. Apart from enjoying the pristine beaches, a holiday in Bodrum offers excellent eating (especially the seafood), lively nightlife, exotic bazaars, and a myriadmore

The time of year had a lot to do with making my holiday in Bodrum very enjoyable, being not as busy, or as hot, as in high season. A lovely resort with some classy shops as well as markets and bars. The bars run through from the shopping street through to the sea front with lovely views of Bodrum Harbour. A lovely open air nightclub is at the end of the harbour.

Loved every minute - Nic Welsh. Date of travel: Jul 2005
We stayed in Turgutreis, 20 mins from Bodrum on the dolmus. Loved every minute of the holiday. Best bar there has to be Nutters beach bar and cafe. The staff here are so friendly.. and there's also some hot turkish waiters lol. Also the boat trips are good. The beach also has watersports. You can easily get the dolmus from Turgutreis to bodrum and other places for 3.5 YTL. Tour Operator: booked private

We have just had a two week holiday at this hotel and it was very nice. The hotel is split between the main hotel and bungalows set around 3 swimming pools and an indoor pool. The rooms in the main hotel are better than the bungalows generally they are carpeted, but if you are unhappy with your room see reception in a friendly manner and they will try to find you a better one. The food is varied. Breakfast consists of cereals, breads , omelettes, pancakes and cheeses. Lunch: there are two eating areas, the main restaurant and the pool bar with burgers pizza and fries. Dinner is in the main restaurant with a variety of hot meat and fish , pasta dishes, salads and sweets such as gataux melon and Turkish specialities. Entertainment during the day is by the animation team which consists of volleyball , boules, waterpolo, table tennis ,football etc. The evening entertainment is done by the same people and is very average but this is normal for Turkish hotels. The best night is Turkish night on a Saturday which consists of belly dancer and Turkish dancers. There is also a bazaar around the pool. Don’t buy the fake perfumes they are *rap. Also don’t buy the tobacco from street sellers as it could be toxic (recent tv programme about this). The shop in the hotel is expensive £12 for aftersun , 50% more than face value on stamps in the boutique. The games room is expensive at 10 euro for 1 hr of pool so take something to amuse kids ie rubber rings lilos crocodiles , electronic games. The nearest village is Gundogan 40 mins walk along very steep poor road. The dolmus will take you ther in 10 mins for 1TL or to Bodrum for 3.5TL, only 1 bus an hour in May journey time 45mins not too bad a journey after the first 15 mins. Market day in Bodrum is Tuesday which is above the dolmus station. Ali baba restaurant is good value on the waterfront in bodrum 13 TL for pepper steak with chips and salad. This hotel will suit people who don’t want the constant hassle of the bars and shop owners and who don’t mind the average entertainment in the evening. There is a good disco but this doesn’t start until 11.30 and the kids can go if they behave. All the staff work very hard, most at least 12 hrs a day for £60 a month. Please say hello to Esra, Yusuf and Surup from Technoman, the boules champion for 1 week: they will remember me. Lastly Bodrum airport is a rip off 5 euro for a poor cup of coffee £4.80 for a tube of Pringles. Buy your duty free with cash: they uplift the price they offer you in pounds when they convert to TL by 15%. Also take cash and and hire a safe for 24 euro for 2 weeks you get a better deal all around; or use your cashline card at the atm, very simple Have a good holiday Technoman!!! Tour Operator: Jetline
Bodrum - Hannah Clarke. Date of travel: Jun 2005
I have been to Turkey a few times, last year i went for 5 weeks. Its a beautiful country. I would definatly recommend Characters bar. I know all of the staff really well and they are all very friendly and will help when ever they can. Ask any of the staff in Characters if you would like to go on boat trips, aqua park, turkish bath and they are all fantastic things to do while you are there. there are hundreds of lovely resturants for you to choose to eat in i would again recomend characters and istanbul resturant. Dolphin Bar is also a good bar with lots of entertainment for all ages. If you go i hope you have as much fun as i do.
