Beach, service, food, top drinks, view, location (we walked from Bodrum one night), friendliness...this is a very romantic please to stay. 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.
Staff very friendly,great value
The location and the view (after we paid a full extra night rate to get the sea view room) were very good. The food is very poor, chicken and cheap fish and no variety. The restaurant layout is not compatible with the number of guests and much less with bad weather conditions. This hotel would be a good 3 stars, not even close to a 5 stars quality.
Great location, close to bodrum Marina. No way this Is a 5 star hotel, on its best day it's a 3 star hotel.
The location was though away from the city center, the beach was nice.It was affordable. Room was small and its facilities were poor
A good amount of the staff spoke English, which is very helpful, there are also inexpensive and fun things to do right outside the hotel. For example a 7 hour boat trip around Bodrum, meal included, for 20 dollars. If you're planning on staying in the hotel for only a few nights like I did, you won't be able to get your monies worth, in my opinion, if you're staying for a week or so, and can afford it, well worth it.
Nothing Awful service. This is not a 5 star hotel, it is 3 star with max 2 star service.
Nice beach, good location and view at Bodrum castle, food's excellent, personnel is very polite and helpful, hotel's close to bus station as well as watertaxi and taxi stations. There's not always enough chaise lounges on the beach, drinks are not included with meals (dinner). It's forbidden to bring food and drinks into the hotel.
- beach, clean sea water; waiters are very prompt to clean the tables; excellent coffee at the bar; tennis; terraces; landscape - this 5* hotel needs a re-evaluation, is rather a 3* clean hotel; same breakfast every morning, no variety, no change in the menu, you have to pay for fresh orange juice at BREAKFAST and dinner (even if half-board paid); not enough elevators on each side of the hotel (very crowded too often); many times either poor communication between staff members, either they do not understand English well, so that messages transmitted differently, wrong, partially; we paid for some items in the minibars we never got - we explained it to reception desk but no result.
The only drawback is the catering facilities. You should allow the option since it is paid for to request these paid for dinners or breakfast to be delivered to the room. It is impossible to find seating especially for dinners and very often tables are reserved and remain empty until the client shows up. This is not proper conduct especially by the staff waiting on the guests. These facilities should be based on first come first serve- No advance reservations!!! See the above. I guess a client should at least have the option not to pay for hALF boerd and eat as he wishes. I paid for half board and paid for every meal I had because so far it has been annoying to try to find seating at your dining facilities
Cheap, close to the beach, large rooms, friendly staff, nice pool dirty rooms, poor location, loud
Good pool/beach. Entertainment good at night. well located in heart of Gumbet. Friendly pool staff Room was terrible - nothing like net picture. Front office staff very unhelpful - in fact I witnessed an almost brawl between customers and Mgr. Way over priced for the standard of accomodation
quiet, friendly environment and personnel
specially I liked the nice gardens, the rooms, the swimming pools, the nearness to the beach and the variety of the menu in the buffe I did not like anything the environment of the night because the music of the bars is listened from all the rooms (we had to change room to be able to sleep, but in the second room we could not sleep either). It is difficult to rest during the night in the hotel.I think that is a hotel to have fun and not to rest.
Location was excellent
Clean, confortable and spacious room. Nice breakfast and dinner. We were allocated to a very loud room at first but agreed to swap room with one in a quiet location facing the gardens. Very happy with the room. The hotel didn't seem to be very busy due to the low sezon.
Quarto muito agradável, ótimo chuveiro, cama confortável, incrível café da manhã, excelente piscina, funcionários simpáticos e prestativos. O sinal de Wi-Fi no quarto era fraco, relativamente longa caminhada até o porto e outras atrações (embora ainda dê pra ir a pé).
Walking distance to town. Seafront. The booking was guaranteed seaview and there was no seaview room available when we booked in and therefore had to change rooms after 1 night.
Great location, value for money, good food Bed was a little uncomfortable
Very nice facility, though there are lots of stairs. The food was excellent, and the entertainment staff ("animation team") organized a super-fun trip to the local disco, complete with tee-shirts. Booked and paid for a room with a sea view; upon arrival, only room available was "garden view" (view of the shrubs and a tree), with no adjustment in price; also, the spa was very overpriced with comparable services in Gumbut at much lower cost.
the pool breakfast area was far from some of the rooms air conditioner was not very cold
food and services. Lovly view from our room and very clean. Beautiful pool and bars and cafes surrounding area No adequate lifts to all floors for people with walking difficulties due to the amount of steps.
It had an indoor swimming-pool and a hammam (free for guests). The room had a nice balcony with a lovely seaview. It was quiet. Staff were most helpful. The buffet restaurant is closed off season. The choice of food from the room service is very limited. I ordered the same meal twice, the second time I had salad instead of vegetables. The quantity is limited too. Also guests have to pay for the airport pick-up
the view from our room (sea view).... they should offer free lockers in the room... and spa club charges very high...
It is a very relaxing hotel and the food was of high quaulity I did't like the fact that there was't much entertainment at the hotel, some of the bars wont open every nite and the prices of drinks was very expensive.
nothing no tap water at night,insects(big bugs) in the room,very poor and not fresh breakfast,dirty beach,constraction in progress
Spacious room, great views, incredibly friendly staff, fantastic food in terms of quality and variety. I'll definitely come back to stay here. Internet is unbearably slow all over the complex.
Like the Aegea Sea view and it's 'Pool & Beach' Area.
The views were amazing. Every room has a great view. Also the owners are terrific! They are so kind. They make you feel like part of the family. The location requires you have to be able to walk hills. But besides that it is quick to the beach down the hill and not to far of a walk to bodrum central.
ı could not stay at the Sami Beach Hotel as they are full even I have confırmed the reservation.
Proximity and price
Location of the hotel is excellent: on the beachfront and close to shops/bars. A minibus (dolmus) to Bodrum serves the street on which the hotel is situated. Room met my expectations for this price; bathroom was a bit old but clean. My room was sitiated opposite a staff office. Staff could be noisy. Overall, the staff of the hotel could be a bit more considerate/nicer to the guests.
The close distance to the sae .
Everybody was kind and trying to make our staying better. The hotel is old and must re-built. The rooms has moisture, didn't have fridge.
