Trying to Reach Premium Status with Amateur Staff

Posted 12-Sep-2014
Pros: See is one of the best in region. Vale staff was very fast. Shisha guy prepared excellent tobacco mixes.
Being one of the most expensive hotels in region it's aspiration to reach premium status unfortunately fails miserably. You cannot simply charge high rates, you have to deliver. Sea and bay is one of the best in Bodrum, but service is ordinary. Staff is new and undertrained. They don't know how to share tables, and orders are delayed. Sundeck bar by the sea doesn't have basic ingredients to prepare even a basic cocktail. Everything comes to beach from the main bar unless you can live with a bottle of beer, but I am not a German. Every order takes half an hour. Saigon restaurant has nothing to do with Vietnamese cuisine, I don't know know why it is named that way. Food was very pricey and bad. There was so much cinnamon in meals that we couldn't taste anything else. Chef must be immediately replaced. AC broke in the room. Such things can happen. They told me that it would be fixed by the time I return from my dinner. Unfortunately when I was back around midnight it was still broken and I had to go to reception to complain (because they thought it was fixed). We switched rooms, but when you are tired in the middle of the night it wasn't really pleasant. The restaurant chief by the beach was quite cocky telling people about his tourism education in London. He better give proper training to the staff before that. Overall this hotel is just a wannabe of premium class but too far from that. I wouldn't recommend.

Pros: It is great hotel for families with children because they really take care of children and they have many activities for them.
Cons: The transportation from the hotel is not easy, so I think they should have at least some shuttle service for the city center.
It is nice hotel and it has very good service but is far from the city and everything else so it is recommended to have a car.

Tranquil hotel

Posted 16-Jun-2014
The resort was nice and the service was friendly but not efficient for example the bill took ages to arrive and it was the wrong bill when it eventually arrived also the food is expensive for what it is and the basic order of service needs working on. It is cheaper to eat at the town centre which is only 20 minutes away by bus which come every 30 minutes outside the resort and us much cheaper then a taxi. The spa is nice with friendly staff but again very expensive. The beach is secluded which is nice and there is call button on every sun lounger if you need anything which is a nice touch. Also avoid buying anything from the hotel shop as it cost me £8 for a bar of chocolate and packet of crisps! Overall friendly staff but expensive food and spa treatments.

Great hotel however .............

Posted 13-May-2014
Pros: The view is amazing. the staff make it for the hotel. Food quality is exceptional. I would stay again but would hire a car
Cons: Kettles in room. Food and drink by pool. Hotel shuttle bus into Bodrum
Location: Nothing close. Bodrum is 15mins away
This is a great hotel. The negatives are few but need to be mentioned. The hotel is isolated and there is nothing near it.It costs TL 75 each way into town ( GBP 24.00 ) Hotel would benefit from its own shuttle bus. It also means no choice but to eat at hotel. No kettles in room, so it is a call to room service. I needed hot water for medicine and they were great but wish I had brought my kettle. Food and drinks by pool is a 30 - 45 min wait. There is no pool bar or something closer and faster. When most meals are £20, one expects reasonable speed. Ideas would be to have somewhere poolside for drinks,crisps,ice cream. On plus side , the rooms are great with a high level of extra's. The staff are amazing and friendly. Hotel food is very good standard. Hotel breakfasts are one of the best I have had.

Best Hotel around

Posted 02-May-2014
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff, beautifully clean.
Cons: Drinks prices are very steep, quality hotel but a glass of wine around £10…really?!
Location: Beautiful location, however, quite rural and isolated. No shops or restaurants within walking distance, need to travel 20 mins into Bodrum.
My husband and I had a week at the Kemplinski. We could not fault the hotel in any way, however, there are two things to mention: The hotel is 15 to 20 minutes from Bodrum, there is nothing else around, its in a very rural position, but in a lovely little bay. Good and regular bus service from the hotel to Bodrum. The food and drinks are very expensive ( around £10, for glass of wine).
