With a massive swimming pool and a seafront location, the La Blanche was made for water babies. It’s also got five restaurants to boot.
This hotel’s seaside position means you can get a private slither of sand in a matter of footsteps. While you’re there, tip-toe along the prom for five minutes, and you’ll find yourself in the centre of Turgutreis.
When it comes to views of the Aegean Sea, this place comes away with the prize. Some of the five restaurants look out over the ocean, and there’s even an amphitheatre propped up next to the sand.

This impressive lagoon-style pool is just a stones throw away from the beach. A wraparound sun terrace comes with sunloungers and parasols too for those who want to relax.
Your kids won't know what to do first. Waterslides, a monster-sized lagoon pool and enough room to have a splash about in the sun. There are also sunbeds and parasols around, so you can keep an eye on them and see their smiles.

Good hotel, but few issues
Overall really enjoyed the week, prob more memorable than most holidays, mostly due to the hotels pool and private beach, as well as the animation team. Hotel Brilliant large pool, comfy sunloungers, private beach right in front of the pool. Spotlessly clean, no bugs or insects. Rooms Not great. Large and clean, small balconys, no table on balcony or in room, nowhere to sit and play cards etc. Beds hard as rock. 3 guys on r hol, initially they expected 2 guys to share a double bed, with the 3rd on converted sofa. We complained and they converted the 2nd sofa to a bed. Not comfortable. Air con blew out hot air, when we complained they said it was because it wasn't hot enough yet (27 degrees outside, how is that not hot enough?), that some guests had complained and therefore they were putting the heating on instead of the air con. And in case u don't know, u don't put toilet paper down toilet in Turkey, u put it in bin beside toilet, and there's a water pipe in toilet for cleaning yourself. All bit weird, but that's Turkey for u. We had a road view room, we had picked the best value room when booking so couldn't say much. Did ask for pool or seaview room as hotel was nowhere near fully occupied, but denied. Said it would cost Â£100 more, decided wasn't worth it. Food Tale of 2 halves. First couple of days- very poor, not cuisine bristish would eat. Apparently british people complained and the food got a lot better. Still a bit weird. Desserts on some nights were really nice eg creme brÃ»lÃ©e. Others, just average.maij courses ok, rice, mashed potatoes, veg etc, chicken. All ok. Pizza wasn't up to much. A lot of spiced food. Breakfast- ok, pancakes, Nutella, fresh honey etc. But all fruit juices out of machine, very sugary. Had fresh squeezed Orange juice but cost extra. Lunch- mostly ate at pool side cafe- nice kebab and cheesy naan meals, burgers etc. Overall food was ok, and got a lot better from the gala night on. A la carte Turkish and Chinese restaurants (both in Turkish restaurant as not business enough yet to open individual a la cartes), where ok. I was in Turkey about 8 years ago, food in that hotel was better. Drink Quite good. Local brand efes beer, red, white, rosy wine. Red was nice, other 2 ok. Local rum, whisky, vodka etc, cocktails etc. Other stuf cost extra. Plenty of soft drinks and bottles of water. Animation team Excellent. Hard working. Guys , girls and leader. Very friendly. Best part of holiday. Good volleyball sessions! Boat trip via Mr smiley and jj- great, and good value (Â£20- suspect will be more in peak season). Watersports right beside hotel. Spa at hotel for Turkish bath and massage- great. All open to negotiation on price, again prob due to start of season. Turgutreis - not far. Lots of fake shops- negotiate hard. There's fakes, and then good genuine fakes!lol there's a market on the fri also (think it was the fri). Apple bar is where the bristish guests seem to go- jj and Mr smiley work there. Overall, great holiday for the price we paid (Â£430 each, could have been cheaper if we booked after the terror attacks). Hotel let down by rooms- heat and bed situation, and food just wasn't 5 star, maybe 3 or 4 star. Felt very safe while there, everyone very friendly. I'd imagine may be a bit different for females, some of the Turkish guys may b a bit sleazy, but maybe not.More
Me & my Husband visited this hotel about 8 years ago, we had our holiday to Tunisia cancelled so thought as we had enjoyed it before we would give it another go Transfers were less time than we expected, arrived at the hotel , quick check in . We were given a superior room which was big, the room was clean and decor was ok. Before when we visited there was several restaurants to eat in but we were told because of the weather there was only the Turkish restaurant apart from the buffet restaurant to eat in, I did feel the Buffett restaurant catered more for the French & Dutch , I'm not a fussy eater but come on who eats cauliflower or broccoli for breakfast. We met up with Caroline the Thomsons rep to raise our concerns and I must say she did try, we were then able to have choice as they alternated the Turkish restaurant to Chinese & Mediterranean, thanks Caroline you did your best. I would advise speaking to Caroline , she will listen and try her best to solve any issues and is very knowledgeable, she is a credit to the hotel. Weather wasn't that good but we still had a good time , we met some nice people. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, staff are very polite and it is spotless. Would return again.More

We had rooms across from the outdoor theatre they were exceptionally large. Bed sheets towels, and room cleaned every day. Water, Fruit juice and small bottles of pop replaced every day. Location is perfect 10mins walk on lovely promenade to Turgetries . Lots of food to choose from some freshly cooked. Pool bar very good for snacks.Plenty of sun loungers . Excellent hotel surroundings. All staff very friendly and helpful. Irip to Kos go with travel agent you get picked up from hotel go to Bodrum and board the hydrofoil which takes 20mins then at a designated time board hydrofoil back to bodrum and back on coach to be dropped off at your hotel . We found the animation team didn't do any shows outside although it was only the beginning of the season --Bingo quizzes competitions etc at night in the lounge which was far too small to cater for everyone to sit in. The games room was not suitable to play cards or dominoes which meant we had to sit outside away from the main hotel. No shaving mirror in bathroom . There are some lovely walks out of the hotel . The Irish bar in Turgretries is a must you are made very welcome. The market is well worth a visit . Bodrum is a busy town but great to visit.More
Our 2nd 2 week stay at this wonderful hotel did not disappoint us. From the moment we arrived until the day we left , we had the best service in every area possible. Friendly welcome from the Reception staff, bar staff, waiters, housekeeping team, Guest Relations , animations team etc etc. We enjoyed the food in the main restaurant and Snack bar. The themed restaurants weren't open as it was a little early in the season. We felt very safe at all times around the hotel , beach and Turgutreis town. It was quieter than when we were there 2 years ago over the same period, which is a shame as tourism is clearly extremely important to Turkish resorts. I'd highly recommend La Blanche as a relaxed, clean, very friendly place to enjoy your holiday and would definitely return.More
Couldn't recommend a better hotel
Just got back from another brilliant holiday at la Blanche. We have visited 3 times in about 18 months and each time it gets better. I couldn't recommend a better hotel All the staff are very friendly and could not do more for you. The rooms are very spacious and clean. We have a bit of a sea view but was on the ground floor so couldn't see much of it but still a nice view. The food is nice and a lot of choice there are some al carte restaurants but we never have tried them we ate most days at the snack bar for lunch. There is a private beach with plenty of sun beds and a canopy on each side so you don't have to sit in the sun all day. There is a beach bar so and one by the pool so always easy to get a drink. The pool is very big so you can swim without having to go around people. The sunset is something to see its always very nice and makes a nice photo. We walked into turgutreis which is around a 10 minute walk from the hotel by the sea front where you will find plenty of shops and pubs to go in. I will definitely be booking to go back again. More
