Impressive sea views and a great choice of pools make a winning combination here.
This place has a tranquil setting, with mountains rising above and the blue waters of Akyarlar Bay beckoning below. Walkways lead down to the sea through the gardens, which are dotted with sofas and hammocks.
There’s a great pool scene here, with sections for activities, relaxation and waterslides. Food-wise, there’s an array of restaurants, including a Mexican à la carte, and there are plenty of bars to go around as well.

Yet another fabulous holiday at Kefaluka Resort.
This is our third year holidaying at this hotel. We usually like to go and try different places each year but discovered this gem in 2012 and now can't seem to find anywhere with the same facilities and all inclusive extras. The hotel is in such a beautiful setting and if you take a taxi transfer it's only about an hour from Bodrum airport. There is always a breeze which is very welcome during the day and is delightfully cooling at night! The view from the rooms, restaurant and terrace bar are superb.! Staff are always cleaning! There's loads for kids to do and it's very safe so we were more than happy for our 11 year old to have some freedom with the friends he'd met. The restaurant can be busy especially in the evening and seats outside are in demand. For all meals there is a great choice and even my friend's fussy eating child managed to eat for 2 weeks! The waiters will bring drinks to you but can be slow or they forget as they are so busy clearing and setting up tables. They have added self service points this year which has speeded things up. The snack bar served the usual fast food. The patisserie was a superb addition this year and had a fantastic choice of cakes. Ice-cream and waffles are also served outside here. The terrace bar also serves a mini patisserie selection through out the day. We sometimes went here if we'd missed breakfast. The Italian restaurant is also open for lunch at no extra cost through the day (but you have to pay 10e per head at night) We really enjoyed eating here. The cheese flat bread was delicious and there are soups and salad to help yourself to. The beach is a pleasant change from the pool and is generally quieter and has much more of a breeze. The entertainment team are very funny, pleasant, hard working and enthusiastic but don't pester you if you're not interested. The entertainment is good family fun. If you're debating whether to go to the Kefaluka resort or somewhere else then choose here. You will not regret it! Will we be back ? Most definitely!More

Spotless hotel(needs improvements)
This is the first time my family have stayed in Turkey. I travelled in a party of 6 with two children aged 8 and 4. I chose the hotel as it suited all our needs. The hotel itself exceeded my expectations, it was very clean and facilities were great. I found the hotel quiet in the first few days of our holiday and plenty of sunbeams were unused. The aqua park was excellent. The animation team tried and worked very hard, although some of their activities I think could be improved. They were very friendly and polite and took the time to speak to you. My daughter attended the kids club everyday and thoroughly enjoyed the creative day. I do have a few negative points about the hotel. The food in the main restaurant suited more European guest. My children struggled to find something suitable to eat some days for dinner and most days for evening meal. As the hotel is advertised within the Uk brochure then you would have thought English cuisine would have featured. I took some cereals and tins of food for the children, which you would not expect would be necessary in a 5 star all inclusive hotel. There were only a few members of staff who could speak English. The language barrier was a problem for my family a lot of the time and especially when we used the hotel shuttle bus to go to Mid town and were dropped off at the wrong place, where another guest at the hotel had to communicate to the driver exactly where we wanted to go and the communicated back to us. Only one of the guest relations staff could communicate in English so we found it difficult to plan our holiday due to lack of information available. We would go back to Turkey but not neccessarily somewhere as far away from a main town or to a hotel that didn't have enough English speaking staff although we did enjoy the kefaluka resort a lot and as stated above, very clean,plenty to do on resort and very friendly & attentive staffMore
" Lovely hotel with a very chilled atmosphere"
Stayed at this hotel for the first two weeks of the school holidays, I must say that the hotel is spotless throughout. There are nine floors, and we were lucky enough to be on the eighth floor with a pool/sea view, the view was beautiful from every angle. The room was ok with two single beds put together to make a double which is not great, but we had no problems sleeping, and also a mobile type bed which was bought in for my son to sleep on, which did actually block some of the patio door area, as the room was quite small anyway but we managed no problem. We were asked if the room was ok, and we said yes, because we didn't want to risk moving because we had such a good view. There are always plenty of available sunbeds here at any time of the day which is great, also plenty of grassy areas with a fantastic sea view to sunbathe. The pier on the is a lovely touch, also with plenty of sunbeds and a bar, but you could only get coffee/tea beer and soft drinks no spirits at this particular bar. The food was very good and varied and the drinks were excellent I think that a lot of people did not realise that there was a good selection of imported drinks available, if you ask for them, if you do not make yourself clear then you will be served with the local alternative. I was drinking baileys, Malibu, and Kahula, my husband likes his whisky he was drinking johnnie walker red label, you can drink these freely if you ask, even the rep did not know that there was so much choice, as they certainly don't advertise the fact, but definitely worth knowing so that you get a decent drink, you did have to pay for some imports such as jack daniels, but its definitely worth asking what is available, but the ones I have mentioned were available for the duration of our stay. The entertainment team were excellent, very friendly and would often stop for a chat, plenty to do for kids and adults during the day. Evening entertainment was ok, but most acts which were on the first week were repeated second week, there were a few professional acts, but most of the entertainment was provided by the hotel entertainment team things like miss kefaluka, followed by following week mr kefaluka, I think a few more professional acts would raise the level of entertainment especially guests who are here for longer than a week can become a bit boring when you have already seen it. Overall a good hotel with good food/drink would recommend.More

Lovely, relaxing family hotel
Returned 8th August, yes I agree with all other reviews about the transfer to the hotel, along a very bumpy costal road. We had a late flight to the hotel, arrived at 4.30 in the morning and was hoping for some light snacks before going to bed, these were provided but shall we say not the sort of snacks the British like to eat early hours of the morning, especialy children aged 14, 12, and 9, so no left overs from the evening please!. When we got to our room it was ok, we had a family interconnecting room, clean and basic but the paintwork on the terrace needed updating(not the best start). When waking and looking at the view we started to feel a lot better because we were begining to think where have we come, and then it was all uphill from there. Bar staff were great, one or two stood out and were always smiling and they made fantastic cocktails. We all enjoyed the pools, not the best beach, if it's golden sands you are looking for you need to book somewhere else, saying that they have made the most of the beach area and it is pleasant . Entertainment team were fantastic, they took the time to speak to you and made sure you were enjoying and they put on some good shows. Kefaluka can be a very windy resort but this did not bother us. I would only tip the waiters if they deserve it, because you probably want get the same waiter the next night, evening meals are a very busy time. Daytime is very relaxing and quiet and it's only at evening mealtimes you realise how many people are at the hotel. It's mostly Turkish holiday makers when we stayed here with a few British, not many others. You have to get a taxi or bus if you want to venture out as there is nothing outside the hotel, but we were quite happy to stay on site. You can walk to the little village you can see from the hotel but I would not waste your time. I would return to this hotel, we all had a fantastic time and I am thinking about it for next year as it suited everybody. (and don't forget to take extra hangers for clothes, you will need them)More

5 star hotel in windy land
A 5 star hotel in a Windy hot City . With a stunning panorama,it is located outside the Bodrum(30 min by bus).we arrived at 8 am and because of the well crowded season we waited until 1 pm for check in. The staff were friendly and cooperative.There were various type of foods and desert but I didn't find the foods delicious.pool had enough space and sun beds , and the sea had a clean and desirablely cold water. The beverages were acceptable .the room was large and clean.the animation team was not bad, but the Turkish night performance was good.the speed of internet in the room was terrible but at lobby or B1 resting zone was acceptable. Some point should be consider: 1-if you want to enjoy the view and also don't like the noisy sound of pool you should choose the room higher than B2 floor. 2-There are also various elevators at the end of each corridor, so do not waste your time for the main elevator of the hotel( it's too crowded) 3-if you want to have a trip to Bodrum, use the concierge service at the Entrance of the hotel , the price of a return trip to Bodrum is about 10 euro(30 Turkish lira) ( a return trip by taxi at the best price will cost you 150 Turkish lira).4- If you love shopping( such as many Iranian )there are two main shopping center:a-mid town shopping center b-oasis shopping center . The midtown shopping center is far better than oasis( much bigger with much discount in the same brands) . It's wise to go to Bodrum at 9.30 AM or 8.30 PM because of acceptable weather temperature at these hours,otherwise you will sweat a lot in a humid hot climate.Bon voyage .More
