Cactus Mirage

Turkey, Europe
Bodrum

The seaside resort town of Yalikavak, located 2km away from the Cactus Mirage, is famed for its marina, a remnant of its history as a fishing port. With sandy beaches lining its coastline, a lively Thursday bazaar and superb views from the Panormus rock caves, the town is popular with locals and tourists alike. On the outskirts of the town, a group of old stone windmills and the abandoned village of Sandima offer a pleasant day trip, and the city of Bodrum is a short bus ride away.

Benefitting from direct beach access and boasting a swimming pool and a sun terrace, the Cactus Mirage offers a great way to enjoy the Turkish sunshine. Water sports (pedalos, canoes, jet skiing, water skiing and windsurfing) are available at a fee while a number of sporting facilities on site allows guests to fully enjoy an outdoor lifestyle.

One indoor and outdoor restaurant are available on the hotel grounds, and offer sea views, with an open buffet including diet choice. Alcoholic or soft drinks can be enjoyed at either the lobby bar or pool bar.

Accommodation at the Cactus Mirage:

All rooms are comfortably furnished and offer outdoor living space with a balcony. Private en suite shower rooms, satellite TV, a mini bar (at a fee) and safe (at a fee) in each room provide the comforts guests need away from home. All rooms have individual air-conditioning.

Worth its four stars

The hotel is situated near the sea. It is not big and quiet. The staff can more or less speak French and partially English.

Around the hotel, you can observe great green mountain landscapes and local architecture...

I strongly recommend you to leave sometimes the hotel and walk nearby.

The sea area is small, not very deep and convenient for children. Maybe, you'll find the beach and sea area of Cactus Fleur (another hotel of their net, which is situated just 100 m away from the Cactus Mirage and clients of Cactus Mirage are allowed to swim there too) to be better, but that's question of taste. There are no free beach towers, you should either to take yours or buy or leave a deposit to get one. There are some water activities. Not free. But the clients of Cactus Mirage are allowed to use the great aqua-park near the Cactus Fleur hotel which is free for all days except Saturday and Sunday. You can get there by the road (200..300m) or through the Cactus Fleur.

There are some evening activities available like animation etc. There is a place when you can leave your children under the supervision.

The food is available almost full day, either in restaurants or bars. The restaurant is good, comfortable, with ability to observe the sea. The food is not very diversified, but is fresh and tasty. Some days, the dinners are accompanied by live guitar music: the man with great voice plays and sings European, American, and Turkish songs. The restaurant staff is very friendly and helpful, I just want to mention Katie from Ukraine for her help and friendly smile. You can also order a dinner near the sea or visit a'la carte restaurant (for fee).

The rooms are enough comfortable and clean. But the cleaning staff sometimes confuses "Do not disturb" and "Please clean the room" signs :).

The hotel guests by nationality (it was in June): Turkish, French, Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, German, where the first group is the largest, and the last one is the smallest. During our stay, we did not met any inadequate persons.

The worst thing in the hotel is Wi-Fi. It's free, but works in a few places only and even there it is not very fast. Many guests, who need Internet connection, occupy the reception (where the connection is the best).

Great hotel

The hotel is beautiful, clean and the staff is very friendly! The food is okay, lots of variety but always the same. It doesn’t taste that good but it’s fine. Drinks are free ! The WiFi sucks though..

Rude staff...smoking everywhere...not as advertised

Review by gvassolySpartanburg, South Carolina

Hi,

My name is Gil Vassoly; Today we checked in to the Mirage Hotel in Bodrum, TR. Unfortunately the reality his by far years a way from the information on line when it was booked at the Hotels.com website. below are few of the issues and photos to demonstrate the issues: 1) Water Park - the web site tells the story that this facility has a water park - reality - the park in in a different location 300 meters walk on a road with traffic going both ways and no pedestrian walking area...

I can not have my kids walk there and take the risk of them being run over by a car. with this situation they can't use the water park. that was one of the main reasons we booked this location if not the only reason 2) The web site says there is free parking but the reality is that there are only 10-15 parking spots for 174 units hotel and everyone else have to park on the road taking the risk of someone breaking in or damage by crossing traffic 3) There are people smoking everywhere, the lobby, the dining room, the pool, the beach, even the employees smoke while on duty. We tried to ask few times at least where we sit in the pool area but no one cares. guests are smoking inside the restaurant and no one tells them to stop 4) In one room we had a roller-bed and the minute my son seat on it it broke and he fell off to the ground. they tried to fix it and after a while decided to bring a new one. 5) The keys in the room are also used as a switch for the electricity in the room. they seem to have a small magnet inside that is the trigger; in one of the rooms this small piece of metal/magnet fell and now we dont have power to the room. when we asked them to fix it they told us we lost the piece and that they will only give us a new one of we pay extra for it. We never saw that piece and because the bell-boy was the one who open the door we can't even know if it was there to star with. this is just another example of the low level of maintenance in this place. every attempt to speak to the front desk or ask to speak to a manger are blocked and answered in a very rude way

This is unacceptable - we drove all the way from Istanbul for 3 days here and after 5 hours we feel like we want to go back home
