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.

A brilliant holiday
My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic 11 days at this resort. We could not fault it in anyway. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, from the bar staff, waiters and waitresses, to the reception staff. The animation team were brilliant and friendly to everybody, no matter what nationality. The food selection at all meal times was excellent. All rooms have fantastic sea views and pool views.The gardens are so well kept . The beach and jetty only a short walk away, and very quiet. Most days at the resort lovely breeze coming off the sea. We hope to take our family back one day. More

We actually stayed May 2014 not 2015 but felt the need to write a review about this beautiful hotel! We booked this hotel and travelled as a family of 3. The hotel is very impressive, 5star facilities without a doubt, in a quiet and private location, with high quality staff and a fantastic array of food and drink for a brilliant all inclusive stay. Our room was lovely, well decorated and very clean, the sea views were incredible, I believe all the rooms have such view. The hotel is located built into the cliff side in Akyarlar, a dolmus ride from Turgetreis. The hotel is quite secluded, so is probably not for those who want to go out and about exploring on foot, but the location does ensure a tranquil and relaxing stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, from the waiters to the reception staff, the entertainment is second to none, the team work incredibly hard to keep everyone involved and entertained. The shows in the amphi theatre are particularly good. I can't even begin to describe the variety and quality of the food, both breakfast, lunch and dinner are fantastic, with very tasty dishes to suit all tastes, we particularly enjoyed the special desserts of an evening like the giant baked Alaska! There's even an ice cream parlour and a waffle stand, you couldn't ask for more. Even the variety of drink is great with many cocktails to choose from. The actual decor and grounds of the hotel are beautifully kept, particularly the pool area and gardens, where you can nab a 'double bed' sunbed or luxury sunbed if you're quick enough.. That being said there was always plenty of sun loungers. We found sitting on the jetty every day very enjoyable, it is private to the hotel, and there are stairs for you to have a dip in the sea and a bar service also. It is a bit cooler here, so we found it much nicer to sit out in this area. I really can't think of a negative point about this hotel! 5 star accommodation, amenities and services and brilliant value for money. We would definitely return. Top tip - Visit Turgetreis, the shops, bars and restaurants are lovely. The day trip to Kos is well worth doing, the transfer is only 20 minutes by boat from Bodrum harbour More
I'll be back. Mostly great, some not so.
Bodrum airport - extortionate costs for food and drink. "Duty Free" is not cheap. Walk straight past! Getting there - book a private transfer from the airport. Return is around Â£40 to 50 GBP booked over the internet. I'd despair if I'd have had to get onto a buss with 3 other people - all heading to different hotels. Location, not bad at all! Situated in a small bay, this hotel and another on the opposite side sandwich what is a small (fishing?) village. There really isn't much in the village. Great views across the water. There is a lovely breeze (sometimes strong) that seems to gather pace as the day progresses. Hotel, modern and well appointed. It has everything you could need. It's not cramped. There is plenty space, which is great as it's difficult to escape from the hotel with any purpose. The pool area is fantastic, very well designed. Food/drink - the food is of a good standard in general, probably among the best in terms of all inclusive. They are very quick to start tidying things away. One annoying thing they do is remove all the food labels 20 mins before services finished - you then walk round in circles having no clue what anything is. Drinks are ok but staff appear to prefer certain guests over others when queuing at the bar. Only two a la carte restaurants are open to under 12's, the Italian and the international. They run on alternate nights. The choice is lacking but they do put the effort in terms of service. It's worth paying the extra 10â¬ pp to enjoy a more relaxing meal and a decent bottle of wine. The guy running it is great. Staff - The animation team and fantastic.I could not praise them enough. They have boundless energy and engage with everyone. They create a very happy but relaxed atmosphere. The pool party they put on one night was like nothing I've ever seen in a hotel. They had clearly invested time, money and considerable effort. These guys are professional entertainers/dancers/athletes, and there are a dozen of them. There is always something going on somewhere. The lifeguards are great. My two year old took a particular shine to one guy who she worshipped as he was the man who switched on the water park each day! He used to walk the entire length of the complex to give her a hug. Very nice guy. The bar staff all work hard. Some are actually good barman, most are not. Same goes for the waiting staff. They are severely stretched and so cannot provide a good service. They tend to avoid all eye contact so that they don't have to attend to the guest. Rooms, not as spacious as the website would have you believe, but still good with great view.We were on level 2, which was ideal. Up high and away from the nightclub and with great views of the complex. Do not believe the reviews that tell you all rooms have a sea view - they don't - so check if it doesn't say! A limited number face the road. Spa - expect to pay UK+ prices. The service and treatments are actually ok, but v expensive for Turkey. Luckily for them there is practically nothing else to spend your money on in the hotel. The Turkish Bath and massage treatment is good. WIFI - Is most certainly not available ion all rooms. And it's very annoying to use. Keeps dropping etc What they have is inadequate for sure. All in all, this is a good solid choice and won't leave you disappointed at all. You'll be glad you went there. We'll be back...maybe in a couple of yearsMore

can't wait to go back
Just returned from this wonderful hotel. we were a party of 5 adults and 2 children. the animation team, especially Eray Apak, Ismail, Saliha, Tayfin, Sezer and Sadeffin really made the holiday special. they were always around to help and entertain. The spa was a luxury and was used by 5 of our party. the diving was also perfect. great location and 5 star service.plenty of variety in the resturants and the witers were first class. well done Kefaluka.More
