Prós: Beach, service, food, top drinks, view, location (we walked from Bodrum one night), friendliness...this is a very romantic please to stay.
Contras: Bed and pillows were not that comfortable, the rooms were little bit smaller than I am used to. one towel per person; don't get the extra; asked for it, got one extra first day and next day it is back to two again.
Prós: We were at El Vino Hotel in Bordrum for one night in transit from Kos to Ephesus. The hotel is a true gem, with attentive service. The room was more like a suite with separate living room and bedroom. The pool is kept extremely clean and is surrounded by lush vegetation. You do not even feel that you are in Bodrum. It is an outstanding place to relax after boat rides or beachcombing. The personnel went out of its way to accommodate our needs. We highly recommend it and we are very choosy travelers.
Contras: The location is not ideal in terms of view and proximity to the Marina, but a 10-15 minute walk is not a big hurdle
Prós: The beach was the only decent part of this so-called resort.
Contras: The staff was horrific. We asked to be taken to a restaurant/bar in Bodrum and ended up being taken to a random town where it was clear the hotel staff was coordinating with unsavory restaurant owners to bring business. They pretend they are 5 star but I would give it not even one star, the staff was rude, unaccommodating and spoke NO English. They should not be ranked as a 5 star hotel. This experience makes me question Kayak's business policy as it relates to hotel ratings. I feel completely scammed.
Contras: Don't stay here, they allow you to book late online for that night and then don't answer the door when yo finally find the place. They have put a sign next to other direction signs for traffic directing you to go the wrong way down a one way street.
