Well worth the money for All Inclusive!

Really enjoyed our 1 week stay here in May.. It was our first ever trip to Turkey and after hearing mixed reviews on the country itself we decided to take the plunge and I'm so glad we did! We upgraded to a larger room (not sure if it was called a suite though) which have us a large separate seating area which we only really used for storage as the TV was in the bedroom area. We are not the sort to stay in the same holiday hotel twice as we like to have different experiences but I would definitely recommend La Blanche to anyone especially with children. There is a departure kids pool with 3 water slides and a play area to the side. The hotel is on the beach and has a long jetty with a bar and a big seating area. The good was gorgeous both in the dining room and the a la carte reataurants. We had our 2 year old with is and didn't struggle to find plenty for her to eat whixh always makes things less stressful for us parents! There is a little parade of bats and restaurants just a short walk fr the hotel along the beach which leads into a large traditional Turkish market. Plenty to do and a great hotel to return to at the end of the day!More

Good hotel for families with small children

We stayed at this hotel in August 2012. It is fair to say that this is good quality hotel with good food and a nice service and a great spa (massage therapy was excellent). We were travelling with our two children aged 12 and 10 at the time and we reserved a family room. The room was alright but the children had to sleep on sofa beds in the front room and the beds were not comfortable at all. In fact they were very hard surfaced, a full grown person would never had been offered these kind of beds. We were also a bit disappointed about the location of the hotel. The town of Turgutreis is not a lively town at all and Bodrum is far away so we ended up staying at the hotel a lot, which would have been fine if our children had been toddlers. We have stayed before in hotels with similar standard but on other locations and if we were to choose again we would rather go somewhere else, but that is mostly judged on the location. So if you have small children and you have no intention in walking about, I do recommend this hotel. On the other hand if you like to stroll around, look at fun little boutiques, sit at a cafe or perhaps taste fine cuisine this is not the place for you.More

Really great Hotel and facilities

We'd never been to turkey and didn't have a clue what to expect having heard all sorts of feedback from others. The hotel is excellent clean, well situated for walks and other amenities in the local area like the water park etc. Food was always excellent and catered for all tastes. We didn't get the best view from our room looking out over the front car park however we really didn't spend that much time in there. It was clean and comfortable. The Spa facilities were excellent and really enjoyed the turkish bath experience. Also the boat trip booked from the hotel was awesome. We would definitely recommending visiting this hotel and would have no problem going back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAr2OJqeow0More

Hotel is not so bad but service is terible

Before arrival we asked a room with a sea view, and that room was promised to us. When we arrived after few hours we get apartment, but after few minutes guy from reception came and said that they made a mistake a we should change our room. OK mistakes are happening. We got a normal room with a sea view, but we cannot bring out luggage because staff cannot open first room because first room door lock isn't working. We were wait about 2 hours to get our luggage. Room which we get was spacious, clean with good sea view. Our room had 3 beds (one double bad and one single (we are two people), but that was not a problem because room was spacious then room for two. Our room had a terrace what is nice but that terrace is the smallest I ever seen. It has two chairs (without table - objection) and if you want to sit when somebody is already sitting you must to grab chair out from terrace then come in and then grab you chair again. Room has a safe what is nice, but that safe is small and you cannot put all what you want in it. I cannot put my mini HP netbook to it. While I'm talking about room I have to mention that we had a problem with a maid and with a mini bar guy. When maid is doing her job she is doing it well. But almost half of our stay she came to our room at five PM instead to finish her job before noon. Mini bar guy was giving us everything what we should have in minibar, but few times he remove everything what we have not spent and leave to us only daily ration. Why for god name he is removing drinks from our mini bar. Maybe I want to drink 4 coca colas because previous day I did not drink anything from mini bar. Food - breakfast was the same each day - sausages, hot dogs, same salad bar (not so plentiful, few breads, honey, English breakfast things, omelet, eggs and few types of salami and cheeses. All 15 days breakfast was the same. Lunch - we had two choices for it, main restaurant and pool bar. Hear we have a lot of objections. First sometimes we cannot get a spoon for a soup, sometimes one soup is missing (eaten) and nobody bring new one. Lunch also did not have a great choice. Mashed potato, french fries, salad bar is a little bit richer, meat was in crumbs. Each time we have to wait about 10-15 minutes for barbecue or for Turkish pizza. What I have to praise are casseroles which were very tasteful. Dinner was the pretty same as lunch at main restaurant. Pool bar - snacks were THE SAME each day and guess what you always had to wait about 15 minutes to get it. Salads were very poor there. What you can grab as a snack? Hot dog, pizza, cheeseburger, hamburger, chips, kebab and some fried drumsticks (if you are fast because that vanished very quickly). Pool bar does not have enough tables and also you have to wait until you grab one. About food I have one more praise regarding cakes during lunch and dinner. Entertainment - is very rude at amphitheater where some amateurs tried to dance some Turkish dances or to make some jokes. At beach bar entertainment were a little bit better because of karaoke, some music band and DJ. Regarding entertainment I must to say that animators are very rude and non-behaved because they do not choose the right rime and like they are trying to disturbing you almost all day, when you are sleeping, taking sunbathe or eating. Bars - beach bar is working till midnight, lobby bar is working till 2 am and starting about 830am, although in the hotel brochure is written that it is working 24h. Maybe they are thinking that coffee machine which you can use from 0200 - 0800 is enough. Beach - if you are expecting a wide beach you will be disappointed. Beach is wide exactly to put to sunbeds. It is long but not as you can see in Belek or Side. Beach is keeping almost cleared, but objections are - when children made some castles, holes and similar things you will see that tomorrow morning. Also sunbeds were never cleared from sands. Be careful not to put something to sand (book, magazine and similar) because cleaner guy will grab it and put to trash. We were from 07/05-07/14 and water was so cold that we entered to sea only few times. Few times we had rain, cold nights, and wind. Hotel has its artificial lagoon what is nice, sea is without waves, but enter to water is covered with small very sharp stones and counting cold water it is not so pleasantly to come into the water. Beach bar... Everything is serving in plastic glasses (hotel explanation safety), but these glasses are not in a good condition. Also if you want another drink you have to go to bar to grab you another drink. Guy who is collecting empty glasses was very rude. Few times he put his arm over my shoulder and grab glass in front of me. If you want some peanuts or something similar you have to ask, nobody will offer you that with bear. Breakfast packet - if you want to go to some excursion it is better solution to go to main restaurant to make some sandwiches instead to ask hotel to give you packet (of course if your excursion beginning after 7 am). Pool - pool has a large surface but it is shallow. About 1.2 - 1.5 m. Pool does not have enough sunbeds and hotel denied to reserve it. I had an issue with hotel stuff when I came to the pool, put my towel and magazine and moved 1 meter from it to see something on phone. Hotel stuff came and grab my towel and magazine without asking anything. That was not a reservation, I was at pool at that time. While I'm talking about pool my wife and I saw that guy who were doing cleaning pool environment all dirty water pushed to the pool and that was not happens just once. Cocktails - hotel offer some cocktails included into UAI. It is not a large choice, but that small choice is not good. Why is not good. Because bar stuff do not know how to make cocktails. If you tried somewhere else sex on the beach here you will be very disappointed. Afternoon ice cream... Yes it is included into UAI but as you already can guess you have to wait from 15-30 minutes to get it because only one guy is working and if some flavor is depleted nobody will change it or get new one. They have a good massage, but that you have to pay extra (25 euros for back massage). Medical attention - they have only one nurse who speak only Turkish. Garden - hotel does not have a garden if we do not count few trees near the main pool. All facilities are too small for guest number and you have to be quickly or to wake up early to get what you want. I have to return to maid. Sometimes she forget to give us clean towels, sometimes that is a soup, sometimes that is a toilet paper, shampoo or shower cream. We never get everything what we need. All waiters are very slow, whether it is regarding table cleaning (from previous guest) or to bring you a drink or something else. IMHO - this hotel is not 5* especially not UAI. If you want to see what is UAI and what 5* really look come to Belek, Side, Anatalya or similar places. This hotel IMHO can get maximum 3* or 3+. A little bit about surrounding. Hotel surrounding is not so good. The main gate looks to some mechanical shops, and some old dilapidated houses. There you can found only one shop (cigarettes, drinks, salty snacks). In front of hotel is a main town promenade and you can arrive to Turgutreis in about 15 minutes. Turgutreis is a one "huge" market where everybody is trying to sell you something. If you do not know how to bargain you will get a copy of Tommy Hilfiger T-shirt for almost a price of original. Prices are higher regarding other places in Turkey except in Bodrum. If you are going to Bodrum do not buy anything there because all is 50-100% expensive regarding Turgutreis. In Bodrum you can see few things but everything is in a such poor condition comparing to other places in Turkey so it is a money wasting. Also they are talking about Bodrum architecture as something very special. Believe me except all houses are white nothing else is special. Almost to forget... Hotel has a free WiFi. But if you want to use it you have to wake up at 6am to have modem access speed. During the day it is almost impossible to use it. If you ask me do not come to this hotel nor to Turgutreis/Bodrum... Choose Ichmeler (Hotel Aqua) or Belek (hotel Papillon Ayscha) and you will have a very pleasant and restful holiday.More

Great hotel

We stayed in The La Blanche June 2014 It was a family holiday with 3 couples and 3 small children What can I say good time was had by all in this excellent hotel From start to finish we could not fault it Rooms were very clean as was the rest of the hotel We ate in all the restaurants and loved all the food There are plenty of fridges filled with bottled water which is great just being able to help yourself Nothing was to much trouble for any of the staff The Thomson rep was one of the best we have come across and the guest services staff were excellent It is only a short walk along the promenade into the town of Turgutreis with a wide range of shops to wonder round and a great choice of bars and restaurants We will defiantly be going back this June this time with friends no children can't waitMore
