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.

Price and Performnce
The hotel is relatively new and well located. Rooms are spacious. Rooms should be refurbished as they are looking a little bit older and there is no room with shower cabinet (Rooms have bath tubes which make harder for people with minor disabilities. Some rooms could be provided with shower cabinets). Sea is almost perfect especially for families with small kids. Food and beverages are good. Because of the deficiency in number and experience of the staff, service quality is average. But, I should admit that there are many hard working service personnel having a good attitude towards the guests. I would like to thank Mr. Aybars and Ms. AybÃ¼ke from guest relationships, Yusuf from La Mangal (Turkish restaurant), MÃ¼cahit from La Changa (Chinese restaurant), Ä°smet from Gardenya (main restarurant) and SÃ¼leyman from Lobby Bar. I think animation facilities do not meet my expectaions. Generally speaking, the hotel was 9/10 when the price and preformance is assessed together.More
If anybody from the hotel is monitoring Trip Advisor can I just say that you have a great hotel but the music that is played throughout the whole resort is TOO LOUD!!! The animation takes place at one end of the pool but I'm sure the people at the other end don't want to hear it---and it's a big pool! Similarly with the beach bar--the "music" is Turkish/American hip hop, probably the choice of the bar staff and not conducive to a relaxing holiday. Turn down the volume as well in the dining area. Too loud especially at breakfast and very repetitive. Some of the staff seem a little depressed moaning about having too much work but having stayed here last year there appears to be fewer guests. Certainly some of the bar areas seem to be undermanned. Food is really good and plenty of variety and we tried the fish restaurant last night----10/10--excellent.More
Thompson travelers beware
I titled my review this because if you book through Thompson as we did you will be allocated a ground room ,which were flooded some months ago,they smell of damp,and our view was a concrete pathway and a wall,not the beautiful view that Thompson show in there brochure, we were moved to another hotel after one night, then we're moved back again after two nights,this time we were on the third floor which was a vast improvement, the hotel staff were very good,but I'm sorry to say the food needs to improve in the main restaurant, More
Some of the people some of the time
This is an hotel that some will like and others wont. If you have been to Turkey before you will know that what is classified 5 star here is nowhere near the European equivalent unless you have paid top dollar for your holiday and this hotel is not charging top prices so do not expect 5 star standard. If it were possible this would be a 3.5 star hotel and no more. I went with Thomsons and having read the reviews on here I was expecting a to get a smelly nasty room but and really pleased to report that my room was spacious, well equipped and smell free! There was no view to speak of - only the wall of the next block but since I do not sit in the room to look at the view this was of no concern to me. There are some glaring issues - the mini bar only topped up some days, not all. There is no line for hanging things out to dry. The bath has a glass panel that is fixed in place so the room attendant would have to stand in the bath to be able to clean it - the result is that it doesn't get cleaned on the inside which is not very nice after 2 weeks! The white furniture in the entrance lobby is quite soled and unattractive and could do with being replaced. The food is average and quite repetitive. The buffet has many choices but there is a distinct lack of lamb (other than on Wednesday evening which is Turkish night) which surprised me as this is the meat for which Turkey is renowned. The deserts, however are spectacular with a huge selection to please everyone so no complaints there! The beach is lovely - with the sea wall protecting you from the heavy swell it is a wonderful place to enjoy a swim. Remember to pack some beach shoes as the sand is quite gravelly in the sea and they will protect your feet. I only swam in the huge pool 3 times during the 2 weeks I was there as although the pool was warmer the sea was what it is all about for me - the views out to Kos and other islands was superb. The highlight of my holiday was the lovely Zeynep Eren the waitress who looked after my needs in the main restaurant each evening. She speaks excellent English and was a total delight. The management should look after her well because she is a great asset to your hotel. I ate in the Turkish, Mexican and Italian restaurants at lunch time and enjoyed all of them (the Italian less so than the other 2). I didn't use the speciality restaurants in the evenings. Turgutreis is a lovely area and I felt totally safe at all times. Overall then I would say if you want 5 star luxury do NOT book here - you will be disappointed but if you was a chilling break in a lovely resort with superb staff give this place a chance and book it!More
Nowhere near as good as last year
Arrived August 25th, given ground floor room with no sea veiw, animation team not same as last year but always spoke, evening entertainment was disappointing and not as good as last year, cleaners very disappointed, never once cleaned mirrors or bath tub, forgot clean towels twice, fridge was not topped up every day, room has a musky smell due to flooding in winter, apart from that hotel grounds kept clean and tidy, am i returning next year?? No sorry time for a change, la blanche as lost a couple of stars I think, need to employ new cleaning staff and get smell sorted out in all ground floor apartments.More
