Certainly not a 5 star

Hotel does not warrant its 5 star rating. The hotel room was good, bathroom was reasonable but not 5 star. There was fantastic views from Hotel. The pool was beautiful, sundeck with bean bags was also lovely. Gardens were very attractive. There was a small garden area outside of our room very pretty and lovely hammock for sunbathing. Reception area was huge and very impressive but wasted space. Space would be better utilised in the bar area which is cramped and too few seats, especially if too cold or windy to sit outside.

Main criticism was the dining room - self service buffet, food was good but too few waiters and tables not cleared. Very noisy and chaotic, not at all a relaxing experience for evening dining. Breakfast was very good as less people in the room and a very wide choice of food. Gala nights on Saturdays, influx of weekend guests and parties of honoured guests to use the term adopted by waiting staff. This left holiday makers with some of the less popular seating and poor service.

Baia Bodrum is an excellent hotel.

The hotel itself was very clean and the staff were very helpful.

Food was buffet style each evening with plently of choice plus there were 3 al a carte restaurants (you are entitled to one visit to each restaurant per stay).

The hotel was immaculate with staff ever keen to assist, a few minor language barriers but these were easily overcome and added to the entertainment.

The animation team worked tirelessly to get everyone involved, and as there is little else to do but eat and laze around in the sun, it was enjoyable to watch them. we did not partake as lazing was exactly what we wanted to do.

The food was very good, plenty to choose from with different themed evenings, not too much choice in the a la carte restaurants but good quality. The location is a very quiet location with absolutely nothing to do, perfect for us, on honeymoon. They looked to be well set up to cater for kids with a bowling alley, table tennis, cinema and kids own pool but we were very early in the season and blissfully not many children were around.

The spa treatments were good value for money and highly recommend a Turkish bath on day 1 to prepare skin for all that lovely sun. we will definitely go back and hope that not too much has changed, except a change of CD!!

First impressions Good, Clean a bit too minimalist for us. Rooms good, bright, clean with lovely views.

Food was poor, plagued with Wasps and Hornets at every meal though a good game of hornet tennis can be had with the old Flip Flop!. The beach, well I think it is safe to say there isn't one, a small triangle with 12 sun loungers on. Sun loungers around the pool were Sardine like. In all honesty we were disapointed this is a young or new hotel with alot to learn the surrounding area is run down with nothing to see or do and we walked the entire bay in search, not even any shops!

Weather Glorious but we were bored, the highlights of the trip were no doubt the Fire work Display on Saturday night and feeding the fish with Bread at the so called Sea food restaurant.

Hotel was advertised as 5* which it was, the rooms were fantastic, really cool modern decor and we managed to get a fantastic room overlooking the bay.

However the service in the hotel was 1*, meal times were fine as it was all inclusive and therefore a buffet and self service, food was good, no complaints.

The problem arose when you tried to get a drink at the bar, it was a nightmare, staff could not speak very good English, it took you around an average of 20/25 minutes to get served also the staff had no interest in the job and basically had a 'dont care' attitude.

Reception staff were also a problem due to the language thing again, several times i had to give up and just walk away with my issue unresolved because nobody could understand me.

Hotel cleanliness was not so great either, however this was basically due to the fact that there was only one maid to a block so her work was def cut out for her.

Withstanding that, she was in every day to make the beds, give clean towels and take away the rubbish. I think the floor and bathroom were only cleaned about 3 times during our 2 week stay.

Hotel location, basically there was nothing around us, however Bodrum was 17km away and the hotel had a bus service twice a day.

Basically this is only the 2nd season of this hotel and I think possibly they will improve with experience. I would go back, but be warned if your looking for action or shopping, basically going out and about this is not the place for you.

Its a chill and do nothing sort of holiday.

The hotel was spotlessly clean, wherever you went in the hotel somebody was cleaning.

The staff were all friendly and made a big fuss of my young son. The animation team were all really good and the mini golf was a definite favourite for all of us (they run a daily competition).

Food was very good all week but Saturday nights far outshone any other night with the weekly Gala dinner which included cocktails and an outdoor BBQ which was situated around the pool. This was followed by a fireworks display and grand raffle.

The canoes and pedelos were included within the price which was an extra bonus.

The only gripes I had was the a-la-carte restaurants which had an appalling lack of choice. The fish restaurant offered only sea-bray or sea-bream. In addition, the ice creams were only for an hour each day which wasn't enough and on one occasion one of the staff told a small boy that he wasn't allowed a second ice cream as he was limited to one per day!

Other than this is was a great hotel and well deserved its 5* rating.

I would definitely go back again the only thing I would advise is that you avoid the massage man if at all possible!
