La Blanche scores major points for its setting. It’s pulled up against a private ribbon of sand, and looks out towards the Aegean Sea and the distant pine-cloaked hills. Two jetties stretch out into the water, cocooning a chunk of it for hotel guests.
The hotel has a huge, lagoon-like swimming pool if you don’t fancy paddling in the sea. It’s crossed by a bridge and framed by neat rows of palms and plump, rainbow-coloured floor cushions. There’s also a miniature pool with slides for children.
You can eat your meals in 5 different restaurants. There’s a buffet eatery, and 4 à la cartes. Go down the à la carte route, and you can tuck in to Turkish, Mediterranean, Asian and Italian fare. If you feel like eating out, meanwhile, just follow the seafront promenade – you’ll reach a string of restaurants and bars in less than 10 minutes.

This impressive lagoon-style pool is just a stones throw away from the beach.
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.

We have been 8 times to this hotel every year there are some new additions we have watched this hotel grow from literally that first brick to what it is now.we have been coming to turn trees for a long time and you will struggle to find a better hotel than this. Over the years we have recommended la blanche to a lot of our friends who have also been and they also return as they like it so much. The extraordinary standards are kept at all times and never seem to decline. From the cleanliness of the hotel and rooms to the food and entertainment are excellent. The staff who we have made many friends are fantastic well done la blanche see you in JuneMore
I went with my mom, sister and my moms partner, overall we had a great time, the food was good, entertainment was good and everything else was amazing. I would love to go again and I feel like I would be welcomed again as the staff remember you, the bars down the walkway were amazing and the whole surrounding was good, during my holiday I had done two water sport activities, one which was extremely cheap and another which was only kayaking on the sea, would love to see you all again.More

Relaxation to the max., get off the grid (internet) and enjoy your vacation
Not much to say except that the hotel was very good. Staff could be a bit friendlier (my girlfriend cut her hand and one of the male staff just pointed us to a doctor downstairs, which was of course not there). That would probably be one of the two negatives, if you could count them as such. The other one was that our room did not get any wireless. We were in the corner room so the reception was non existing. I don't know if this was a bad thing because I could go completely offline (BY FORCE :D ) The pool is great, the beach too. A lot of activities like volleyball, waterpolo, zumba for the ladies and a lot of other things. The best part was the FOOD. It was the best ever, loved it till the end (and then some more). I gained 5kg on this holiday. Cannot recommend this hotel enough. Maybe I am returning this year.More

good to relax . bad for fun
it is the best hotel in bodrum . luxury, good accomodation, nice resturants with good varity of choices. rooms are not spacious balconies are not big just a place for two chairs. no problem for check in . we paid more for a sea view room and luckily got a family suit for two person. entertainment team members are great from all over the world. but night entetainment are boring and nothing special . no problem for sunbeds thanks for good policy about reserving sunbeds. all and all if you want to relax in a calm place in busy bodrum that is the place.

Holiday of Choice
What can one say but 'Wow' - Yes it was the end of the season but what a brilliant way to end a summer in the sun. Our first time to Turkey and a pleasant overall experience. Weather For October was enjoyable, comfortable and sometimes in the evening cooler then expected - so take a jacket or cardigan with you but still warmer then the UK in comparisson. Resort Turgutreis was a little quiet for this time of year - everything was either closing or had closed already but pleasantly surprised that the Saturday tourist market was still open - bargains to be bartered for - Thomson Rep Danny still recommended us to go a little later to pick up closing bargains - he was right.... Did eat out at one restuarant of recommendation - La Pikant - food traditional turkish, turkish hospitality at its finest, good wine and lovely prices - steaks to die for. The resort has a lovely marina area with boutique shops,so more shopping opportunities. Dolmus bus station about 15 minutes walk from hotel along promenade (can't imagine that being nice when hitting 38'c) but dolmus cheap and a experience - F1 drivers were the best description given to them but worked out only £1.50 to get into Bodrum and took 30 minutes so can't grumble with that really - can you..... ????? Overall lovely resort can imagine it being a livelier place in high season and with the cool breeze make it very comfortable to wonder around too. Hotel La Blanche is one of the best hotels in the resort and possibly in Bodrum - ticks all the right boxes - in my opinion - regardless what some reviews say. Arrived to be greeted by porter wanting to take my luggage of the bus and escorted into reception - lovely, open, airy, clean, and spacious, check-in effecient and staff lovely - reception manager Tolga was very nice. Room lovely size, comfortable beds, nice views - upgraded to superior room in travel agents so kinder guaranteed either pool or Sea View (requested Sea View and got it). Food - bone of content - can't please them all - but I was happy with choice, selection, variation and service - your in turkey - if your got high expectations - head to Mexico or some where exotic but you will be paying alot more for that kind of holiday. The hotel provided a buffet service - eat what ever you want, great selection of desserts, salads and offers themed nights too. You pay 5tl for fresh orange juice for breakfast but thats it. If you want something dont be afraid to ask - if a particular waiter doesn't speak that much english there are plenty of staff that do. Especially with the omelette/egg fiasco in the morning - the staff in the restaurant will try and help you as much as they can. There are a few a la carte restaurants provided as part of the all inclusive (get to visit once per restaurant/apart from small charge for Italian) some were closed on select nights due to the a la carte dining being outside and the winds in evening wouldn't make it a pleasant experience. But did eat in the Turkish, Oriental and Italian a la carte which are bookable via Guest Relations on day you wanted to dine (very helpful) - Italian was the best £8 spent EVER - lovely location, personable service and food was amazing. Bar in reception lobby was 24hr and some evenings due to weather got very busy because the entertainment was brought inside where usually its in theatre outside (was informed by hotel). Staff behind bar worked like dogs for very little money but still smiled regardless - Yasin, Orcan, and Ridvan are assets to this hotel - service was brilliant often had a laugh with them. Pool area is huge and is focal point for the hotel - plenty of sunloungers and even a towel service so no need to pack your own - the good thing is the hotel act on their policies of reserving sun loungers - it also applies to Beach - Safe, clean and water defenses - Cabanas available but come at additional charge - best people to speak to about them is Guest Relations. Be aware of Billy boat man - only downside to hotel is the constant harrassment you will get around the pool. He will tempt you on his boats and from reading some of the reviews his nickname is well deserved (Billy BS) - was pre-warned from other reviews but chose to ignore and go with a open mind - at welcome meeting this was highlighted - thanks for the heads up and honesty provided by Thomson Rep. Entertainment - urmmm none existant being weather permitting or lack of facilities. Spa - one of the best - treat yourself and book a turkish bath and massage - best way to relax and pamper yourself. Hakan took really good care of us even though never had a massage before. But question is does it meet up to Thomson Platinum hotels standards - I can't possible judge or make any comments to that question as only staying in Platinum hotels in Majorca & Canaries and you can't really compare as totally different countries. The Platinum service was provided by Thomson with everything from being dropped of 2nd as promised in brochure and travel agent, Thomson Rep on site to assist with any questions and queries, problems or just for a chit-chat. And, as for the hotel - you get what you pay for and it has everything I wanted from my holiday. However..... Thomson Rep - Danny What can I say and I hope he and his company read this as not only is he a asset to Thomson's but a breath of fresh air (compared to other reps we have encountered). He was informative, knowledgeable, helpful and payed genuine interest in us and our holiday. His humour isn't for everyone but he made us laugh with his tales, recommendations and his personality. The welcome meeting we got so much relevant information about the hotel, resort and the surrounding locations which aided us to get the most of our experience in Turkey without losing any days of our holiday. On a parting note... A fantastic holiday, would recommend to friends and family and even would return back. I hope this information is beneficial to you all and you enjoy La Blanche Hotel & Spa as much I we did.More
