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.

A disappointing resort
Returned on the 18th September after a two week stay. We accept that everyone has different expectations and this review is based on ours, other guests we spoke with were either delighted or disappointed with the resort! The resort is what you make it. The resort was far from a 4*+ as listed in the 1st choice brochure we thought that at best it was a 3*, obviously 1st choice have lowered their standards! Upon arrival we were not told anything about the resort so had to find it out ourselves, we were given rough guidance to the room which turned out to be tricky as the passage was hidden behind an unmarked steel fire door, the room wasn't clean when we arrived, the balcony was never cleaned over the two weeks stay, we had to ask several times to have the foot mat replaced in the bathroom, it was removed every day! There was no table in the room or on the balcony and surprisingly for an all inclusive no tea or coffee making facilities in the room.The mini bar was restocked 3 times over the holiday, speaking of which is was making a good impression of an oven, water came out warmer than it went in, the furniture was tired and badly damaged, the bathroom had mould between the bath and the tiles, the bars ran out of drinks on a regular basis, bottles and glasses were dropped twice in the restaurant area and it took over 20 minutes to clear the broken glass away whilst guests walked over the glass. On the Alecarte front the brochure lists 5 Restaurants, however over the two weeks at least one of the Alecarte restaurants was closed each week and the Italian was never open, the guest relations said that this was due to insufficient customers however at 11am each day the notice was displayed telling everyone that the alecarte’s were fully booked! Back on the restaurant front, apart from one waiter nobody cared about service, it was very much a help yourself system even to the point that I had to go in search of cups to have our tea and coffee at 8am in the morning. The restaurant floor was dirty first thing in the morning as were the table cloths. The majority of HOT food was tepid, the food quality and choice in general was poor and very repetitive, NO IMAGINATION. Onion rings and chips for breakfast, lunch and dinner! If you want hot food go to Turgutries 10 minute walk. We attempted to book the seafood restaurant but were told that it was fully booked so booked the Chinese, however due to the guest relations getting the tickets muddled there was confusion at the restaurant as we had tickets for the seafood restaurant in another guests name, after 20 minutes this was sorted out and guest relations rebooked us for the seafood restaurant on the Sunday. When we arrived we found out that the seafood choice on offer was either sea bass or sea bream, the same choices that were available at the main restaurant for lunch and dinner every day! We were told that they can book 35 places at the restaurants but only book for 30 yet they can seat 60+, bizarre. For a hotel with over 350 rooms there was very limited external space for non-smokers to enjoy their meal, only 30 seats in the main restaurant outdoor area. The entertainment was ok Mario shone as a great entertainer and Busra on Guest Relations was a great help. One word of warning is that the main pool is 1.5Mtrs deep all over with no life guard in attendance whilst we were there, he was sat in his box on the beach over 100 mtrs away and he cant see the pool, during the last few days guests, both children and adults, were jumping or diving off the two bridges over the pool with little or no thought about guests that may be swimming under the bridges! Best part of the holiday was the sun every day.More
The hotel is located in a great place, its only a ten minute walk in to the town Center, where there are bars restaurants and shops. The hotel has its own private beach and a massive swimming pool. The hotel has a main restaurant and three ala,carte ones too. The staff are very friendly and the rooms are kept very clean. I found that the most friendliest staff was Buket, the guess relations staff, she helped with any issues I had promptly! More

My best regards for Animation team that have made our days adventurouse and full of fun. Mario, Abdullah, Aylin and all the rest. We will miss you 😘 I am going but for sure my planes for next year holidays will start shortly, and I know already the name of the place ☺. Highly recommended to all of them that want to spend holidays in Bodrum.More
Superb 7-day break
Just returned from a seven day holiday at La Blanche in Turgutries, having had a fantastic time. Hotel was excellent, very comfortable room, super staff (reception, bars and restaurants), food can be a bit 'samey' but always fresh and delicious. Great beach with some amazing sunsets. Many thanks for an excellent holiday More
Lovely hotel but very average food
I have just returned from 11 nights at La Blanche. I was happy with the location and the hotel itself. Although TUI said this was 4.5 star it wasn't. The room was ok, a little dated but adequate. The pool was great and the facilities were good, but the food was very average and tepid. There was very little choice and although all inclusive is repetitive, this was really poor. There were no nice vegetables on offer and when there were veg, they were in a tepid stew type meal. I wanted the choice of nice fresh carrots, broccoli and cauliflower etc! the theme seemed to be onion rings, chips and grilled onion rings or tomatoes!! The food that was freshly grilled each day, chicken, turkey etc was hot and tasty, but anything else, potatoes etc even came out of the kitchen at a very low temp so they were tepid to start with. I complained to the customer relation lady most days about the food to which I received an explanation that included ratios ???. I do understand that people leave lids open and that food is going to reduce in temperature slightly, but this has not been a problem at other hotels I have stayed at. One day the chef pointed me to a microwave!! I was outraged at this, why should there be a need to microwave fresh food that has come from the kitchen? We decided to eat out in the local town at a place called Uncles which was amazing, the food was cooked to perfection, you must try this place. they could teach La Blanche or La Bland as I have renamed it a thing or to on how to cook hot tasty food. The staff were on the whole ok, but certainly not as friendly as the staff on our last few holidays to Egypt. There were times when waiting at the bar, where they were chatting rather than serving the waiting customers, and a friendly smile would be welcome, this wasn't always forthcoming. Overall we enjoyed our holidayMore
