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.

Food and Boat Trips!
lovely week but a few issues, non existent cocktail list that you need to beg for, the food is quite repetitive and disappears between the hours of 8pm and 9pm! Turkish restaurant is good and you need to book the morning before. although we were all inclusive we ate out at Uncles and Cool Breeze - would highly recommend both. The guys selling the boat trips in the hotel were just too pushy and even if you said no, carried on harassing you. We ended up booking another boat trip with a lovely guy called JJ on the Bona Dia boat. This cost us just £15 each, instead of the £25 they wanted at the hotel and all the boats go to the same place so not really sure what they extra money was for. We had a lovely chilled day with good food and met some lovely people, I would recommend these guys instead of the ones at La Blanche. When we got back to La Blanche after the boat trip we were literally shouted at and abused by the guys selling trips in the hotel for not picking their boat. You just done need that on your holiday and speaking to other hotel guests it would seem we weren't the only ones to get this abuse!! We enjoyed Turgetreis but would probably go back self catering as their are some lovely places to eat and drink. Best cocktails were in Sasu Lounge - mojitos were fab!More
Not for couples very disappointed
I'll start by saying what I expect from a 5 star hotel. We are a mature but not old couple, together 4 years so like a little romance. Our idea of a holiday is to chill out, relax and unwind. Have good food, good entertainment and excellent service in comfort and luxury and relaxed surroundings. I'll start with a positive location is perfect. We arrived at 3am tired and weary and spent a good half hour in reception while the man behind the desk clicked on his computer and muttered. No welcome drink no explanation. Eventually we got room 7303, if they try to give you this say no thanks! The outlook was like Prisoner Cell Block H. No view straight into the room across the alleyway and mesh balconies in every direction all completely open to view, plus the loo only flushed when it felt like it. No hotel information either, apart from a tiny book the keycard comes in, so on our first day we wandered around uninformed. After 2 days we managed to get moved to room 6202, outlook over the pool much nicer and some hotel information in the room. However the tv reception was terrible and the shower wouldn't stay up and eventually fell to pieces. That night we discovered the downside of being poolside. The air conditioning was hit and miss so we left the door open at night, which was when we discovered the Russians and Ukranians don't sleep. There was noise, laughing shouting and screaming every night up until 5.30am. On our 2nd day several parties of Turkish schoolchildren arrived, probably 200 or more teenage children, they took over the pool there was no peace, they were everywhere and although their teachers kept a tight rein on them it's hard to make that many children unobtrusive. They left the day before us, apparently this happens every year so do not go there the 1st week in June. Service was sullen and almost non existant, apart from a few exceptions, Bilal in the outside main restaurant area and Baris in the pool bar, both great guys, but otherwise you had to demand service, not something we are used to in a 5 star, and when you did you were met with varying degrees of irritation. In short the outside areas are designed to impress, the inside areas are basic and not impressive, no air conditioning, no quiet comfortable areas to chill out, no adult only areas, no computer access if you don't bring your own, no areas to walk in and enjoy the grounds, nowhere to get away from it all. Food in the restaurant was boring, the same every day for breakfast, chicken or fish for evening meal. Salads were good and the cakes were very good but you had to get them when you entered the restaurant because they were all gone by the time you got to desert. Children were everywhere and I don't just mean the school groups, they ran around everywhere mostly unsupervised, mealtimes were noisy and fractious and not just the children! We only managed one a la cart restaurant, (the Oriental, which was good) because you have to queue at the desk at 10am on the morning you wanted to book. It was hot there, often crowded and the person on the desk usually late so we gave up. This was a last minute deal so we feel we got what we paid for. If we had paid full price we would have felt very cheated.More
Very nice hotel
Just spent a week at La Blanche and despite it being the British half term, it never felt that busy and getting a lounger and shade was never a problem. The hotel was clean and modern if slightly tired looking in places. The pool was very long and never too busy. There is a separate kids pool with slides. The music can be a bit over the top when there is an activity going on and it would have been nice of they turned it down a notch or 5. The beach area was lovely with plenty of loungers and parasols. There is a beach bar which is clean and well stocked, they serve food there which we didn't realise until the last day. The food in the buffet restaurant wasn't too repetitive and there were always plenty of vegetarian options for us. The drinks were occasionally a bit too strong, a gin and tonic with 50% gin is a bit too much for me! All in all, I'd highly recommend the hotel and also the nearby town or Turgtreis which is a 10 minute stroll along the front away.More
Super hotel, nice people especially Mustafa from the Restaurant ,Tolga the barman and Abdullah always serving with a smile. Nice room (although I booked single and than you have to wait in which room they put you.) The animation team was super, Kiko, Caroline, Bilel, Aygor, Fifa (the best dancer I have ever seen).Thank you, love you guys) The food was great and the hotel was beautifully locatedMore
Fab location, nice staff and clean but getting a little tired..
This is our 4th visit to La Blanche. From experience I can tell you to book a superior double as you get so much more for your money. The food selection isn't as good as it has been on our previous visits and some of the decor is getting a little old. All round it's still a lovely hotel with a huge pool and nice staff. There is a 24hr lobby bar and a snack bar open from 12pm-5pm between meal times so the availability of food/drink times cannot be faulted. Rooms are cleaned daily as you would expect from a large 4 star (I think) hotel. The only reasons I've not given it the full 5/5 on this review is due to the slightly tired decor and the slightly smaller selection of food than before. I must mention though I do have a dietary requirement and many things seem to include milk here in the hotel.. rice, sweetcorn, etc. So you may find a better selection when staying. Turgutries is a fab place to visit and we've been here many times! La Blanche is a lovely place to stay when you do! If you do choose to venture out when here then make sure you visit La Pikant on the front in town. It's just after the Mandalinci hotel, about a ten minute walk and the food is wonderful! More
