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: 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.
My fiancee and I stayed at the Melis Pansiyon for five nights, and we were very pleased with it on the whole! The rooms are small and the amenities fairly basic, but the staff were friendly, efficient, and they kept the rooms very clean and comfortable for us throughout our stay. So if you're looking for a luxury resort, this probably isn't the place for you, but if you want a clean, safe, and centrally-located spot from which to explore Bodrum and the surrounding area, it'd be hard to do better than the Melis Pansiyon!
Prós: Although their English was minimal, the staff were very friendly eager to please. And despite the language barrier, they were very helpful when we needed advice about how to get around!
Contras: While the hotel's central location was convenient, the only downside to that was the noise from the street below our window (mostly the drone of mopeds flying around at all hours.)
