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 rattan sunloungers.
There’s a great pool scene here, with sections for activities, relaxation and waterslides. Food-wise, there’s an array of restaurants, including a seafood à la carte, and there are plenty of bars to go around as well.

Very good resort, great food and drinks, specially the cocktails! Very nice and happy personal. The animation team were awesome and we enjoyed every moment. The sleeping pillows on the bed could been smaller size.More
we visited the kefaluka for the 3rd time and although it still has a great location the standards seem to be slipping and it really can't be regarded to have 5* service. Specifically the food and service seem to be slipping from a management perspective particularly at meal times.More

We spent 2 weeks at Kefaluka. Our experience was 5* from the second we arrived till we were waved away by Ismail and Sezer of Team Kefaluka! We checked in at midnight to clean, spacious and cool rooms on the top floor - greeted by a bottle of wine and a fruit bowl. The overnight buffet was fresh and tasty. In fact all food throughout our stay was excellent quality and choice, and even with 6 of us we were always able to find a table in the restaurant. The standard of the drinks (both branded and local) was fantastic, as was the service at any of the bars. The entertainment team were friendly without being over familiar, and available to amuse and help at all times. Special mentions must go to Savas at the poolside cocktail bar, with his welcome and expertise, and to Ismail who heads up the animation team - who was particularly helpful when one of our boys had an injury. The kids (and therefore us) felt very comfortable with the whole team (Sezer, Eray, Tayfun and the rest!). Thank you we will be back next year!!!!!!More

Recently returned from our second stay at the Kefaluka Resort (previous stay in 2013). The resort is fantastic; The waiting staff are exceptionally polite and attentive (especially Ozan). The bar staff are full of fun and super cocktails (especially Savas at the bar in the pool; what a legend!). The entertainment team breath life and energy into everything, without being pushy or over imposing (special thanks to Vako (talented, thoughtful and hilarious) and Ismail (exceptionally caring, talented and a great team leader). Keep shaking your tail feathers! There are many more members of staff that I could mention, however the four above stood out for us. The quality and range of food is great and a match for all appetites. The resort facilities offer something for everyone (especially if you engage with the entertainment team, which the girls did (Vako's aqua gym being the highlight!). The only comment I would make is that in 2013 there were at least 6 kayaks. Now there's only one serviceable double kayak (yellow) and another double that's half full of water (orange). I kayaked for an hour every morning and would have appreciated a single one. Other than that minor comment, there's very little to fault about the Kefaluka Resort, although the Spa shower facilities could do with upgrading and cleaning more often (again minor issue). The Resort has the right balance throughout, giving a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable holiday. I'm sure we'll return again.More

We were a bit wary of all inclusive holidays having had a horrible experience several years ago in Majorca, but on request by our children booked Kefaluka through Thomson Holidays. It not only fulfilled our expectations but surpassed them! The resort is beautiful, away from the hustle and bustle of nearby towns. The hotel is spotless, we booked a two bedroom suite which is really interconnecting twin and double, however ample space and fantastic views. Our only slight complaint was the lack of drawer space and our air conditioning was not as cool as the kids room next door, this did not however spoil our holiday. The pool area is immaculate with plenty of choice for soaking up the sun, from loungers to "teletubbie pods", cabanas etc. And only a short walk down to the beach area where there is the pier with more loungers available. The food was great - this was our main concern with all inclusive but we were not disappointed. Traditional turkish food, Italian, Chinese,Indian - if anything far too much to choose from! The restaurant staff were all very attentive and helpful. Plenty of snack options throughout the day from the several other restaurants too. The Bar in the centre of the pool - what can I say - Savas is amazing! What a friendly attentive bar manager - nothing was ever a problem and he made the most amazing cocktails! He never seems to have a day off though! The animation team are also great - all very friendly but not pushy and you could join in as much or as little as you wanted. I must say all the staff were amazing and a credit to the hotel. We would definitely think of coming back next year, only have heard that there may not be flights to Bodrum, which could be an issue. The worst part of the holiday was landing back in Manchester to 2 Thomson flights arriving at the same time and both directed to the same carousel for luggage reclaim - bedlam!More
