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.

New management and staff
It was not the first time we stay in La Blanche. We are repeat guests. We did hear, when we were still in Belgium, that a lot of the old staff was discharged. We were a little bit afraid. But in other way a lot of the old staff where not âgoodâ workers. That is why we could understand the decision of the owner from the hotel. We arrived very late, around midnight, and the day after we meet the new staff. Only the staff from reception did stay in charge. We think that was a good decision because they know most of the repeat guests and most of them do know how to act with new guests. During the day, we did meet the new management and new staff from restaurant, kitchen, bars and animation team. We can resume their way of working in a few words: hard workers from management to the other staff helping each other and helping the guests as maximum as possible. About the food in main restaurant and snack restaurant we can say the choice was large and quality was very good and better than the last years. Also, the animation team did good work and then specially for the French speaking guests because most of them(=guests) donât speak another language. The result is that we will return as quick as possible.More

Lovely hotel, great location
This was a lovely hotel and the hotel grounds were beautiful. The short walk into to the resort centre was lovely passing some nice little bars along the way. Rooms were large and we had a separate sitting area. Food was good but the chef liked his spices a little to much some evening. The hotel had 4 bars my favourite being the beach bar, and the bar upstairs next to the restaurant was open 24 hours. Friendly and helpful staff, however I would not recommend booking any trips from the hotel, they are good but a little over priced can get them cheaper elsewhere. I would recommend this hotel and hopefully go back one day. More
Holiday in the Beaches of Mediterranean - Bodrum
Resort LaBlanche We chose to stay in a resort named LaBlanche located in Turgutreis, Bodrum. Its about an hourâs drive from Bodrum. The resort is a palatial four star resort, very environment friendly and boasts of a wide range of amenities including a gigantic pool, five restaurants and bars operating 24x7, kids club and activities for both adults and kids all through the day. A professional choreography team to keep the guest entertained throughout the stay needs a special mention. Wine and Dine. Overlooking the Aegean Sea and Greek Islands, the main restaurant, Gardenya caters for buffet during all three meals. The cuisine in the restaurant vary everyday and the staff ensures a delicious and elaborate spread of over 40-50 dishes at all times. The restaurant Gardenya has a spectacular ambience and is well lit up with a seating capacity of over 600. In addition, there are other restaurants which offer ala-carte for those who prefer to be pampered separately. The bars are open 24 hours and drinks are on the house. Sea Side Bar and Lagoon. Guys and gals preferring the sea to soak themselves in the salt water accompanied by a drink must spend their day here. An artificial lagoon has also been constructed by the resort and is provides a safe place to have some fun with the family. Use an inflated bed and lying in the lagoon may prove very relaxing. Across the bar is a small strip of beach. Kids would love to laze in the sand with their toys, while the adults can enjoy a drink and chat or read a book. Pool Side. The resort has a fabulous out door pool stretching all through the resort and finally opening upto the lagoon near the sea at one end and to the kids play pool at the other end. Lined on either side of the pool are sun beds allowing the residents to enjoy the warmth of Mediterranean throughout the day. The resort also aptly provides a bar on the poolside and this suits residents to pick up a drink and enjoy the sun with a novel and chilled beer. Apart from the restaurants, the pool side also has snack outlets providing snacks throughout the day. The indoor pool is located along with the spa, steam room and sauna. The steam room and sauna provide for excellent rejuvenation. Romantic couples may also experience a couple massage at the spa and a hammam (Turkish Bath). The spa offers a variety of treatments to pamper yourself. Rooms. The resort offers a variety of rooms spanning from standard rooms to luxury suites. Since we were three, including my little daughter, we booked a family room. The rooms were very well maintained and service was reasonably good. The view of the Aegean sea from the room was amazing and one could sink, enjoying the breeze and view from these rooms. Complementary wine on arrival was provided. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and had all the basic amenities. The sofa cum bed was a good place to stretch. The bathroom was a bit small but nevertheless did not pose a major problem. But be assured that there are better things to do than spend time at the room. Kids Club/ Activities. All of us would agree that a holiday would turn out to be enjoyable and reckoned only if the needs of the kids are met so that the adults are equally enjoying themselves. The resort provides activities for kids all through the day and have employed professional baby sitters. We found that the baby sitters who are also a part of the choreography team could excellently engage the kids and kids too were extremely happy with, probably because they also may be having a break from their parents!! Entertainment Team. The choreography or the entertainment team make your day. They are such an important entity in that they plan all event for the guests. They conduct a wide range of activities for the guest throughout the day. Fitness freaks may opt for water aerobics, while for fun lovers may prefer salsa classes and beach volleyball to name a few. The highlight of the team is a well chartered performance everyday which may be a belly dance, or Samba or a musical or even an acrobatic performance. An excellent kids discotheque is also organised everyday to enthrall the kids every evening. Adventure Activities A wide range of activities ranging from various water sports such as snorkeling, surfing to para sailing is organized at the resort on payment. Couples may float in the high skies and have wonderful view of the entire town over the Aegean sea. Its an amazing experience supported with excellent breeze with the warm Mediterranean weather. Above all these come at extremely affordable rates around 30 USD/ person Excursions. A number of excursions are offered by the local tour operators. Its ideal to go to other places once a while. Day trips to Pamukkale, or boating around the islands and trips to few of the Greek islands such as Kos etc are conducted on a daily basis. Greece is just an hour away in a ferry, but one needs visa to gain entry into Greece. An excellent place near by is the Rabbit Island. The island is close to the sea shore and one has to walk from the shores, into the sea to reach the island. Itâs a unique experience. The sea water level is not very high, but not advisable for kids unless they are strapped in the back of their parents. The village near Rabbit island offers a variety of sea food restaurants. For foodies this is an ideal place to spend the evening along the sea shores in a quite atmosphere.More
Wonderful Hotel in a lovely location
I will keep this short and sweet, Staff were brilliant, hard working and nothing too much trouble, the grounds, room, restaurants were immaculate, the food was very good along with the choice and al a carte options we couldn't fault, the drinks were all good and plentiful, excellent choice including lots of international brands. The pool was massive, with busy and quiet areas suitable for all. The hotel location was great, 10 min walk to town for the odd kebab or bit of shopping (market being very good) the beach was private and sandy and suitable for young and old alike as shallow a oong way in. Overall brilliant, would definitely return!!! Any detailed questions welcome (advise to book via On the beach and not Thomsons!!)More
