Not worth 5 stars classification not really all inclusive

Review by EZ_Leb Beirut, Lebanon

Our stay in this resort was disappointing for the following reasons and more:

  • The first room had electrical issues so the electricity would go suddenly without reason.
  • We relocated to another room. After 2 hours we noticed the AC is too small and not even working. The temperature outside was 35C.
  • We relocated to a 3rd room at midnight, again the AC was too small for the room and barely enough to cool it down...

I asked for an extra fan, they told me there isn't.

  • The all inclusive concept is just a bait. You have to pay for the spa, pay for your drinks, pay for everything other than food. Even the turkish hammam, they say it's free, well it's not in reality.
  • The mini bar in the rooms is empty (which 5 stars hotel doesn't fill the minibar???)
  • The room cleaning service is intrusive, I press the do not disturb button, they still go inside the room to put 2 sachets of Nescafe, and don't even clean the room.
  • I asked for tissue papers, 3 times, never got any.
  • I killed 2 massive spiders in my room although I never opened the window from the heat outside, these were resident spiders. In addition to spiders, ants were invading the room.
  • The food in the food court is disappointing, most of the time the food is mushy and I had leave most of the food as it was inedible.
  • I took a SPA appointment with my wife, one at 3pm and one at 4pm (because there is only one masseuse), they call me at 2pm and they say they need to postpone our 4pm appointment to accommodate another client.... how professional is that???
  • The food court staff are rude and to avoid serving you they pretend they dont understand English, for example: "1 diet pepsi with ice please", he puts the cup below the fanta and gives me a look 🤨. Diet pepsi, how difficult is that???

In summary, we chose this resort because of it's 5 stars rating and its proximity to the beach but we paid the price, this hotel should be rated 3 stars at max.

Avoid it at any cost.

Good location

Review by justinebD1815WJ Fethiye, Turkey

We only booked in for 1 night for a short stay in Bodrum. Hotel was easy to find, has parking and a short walk into town. Rooms were spacious and clean with tea/coffee making facilities...

Only downside was no hot water. Breakfast was good, great choice for all of us

the hotel is not for relaxation!

Review by Антон С

We are have arrived at the hotel with two children. we were placed in a room which was 10 meters from the restaurant in which loud music was constantly playing. I asked to change our room, but the hotel employee told me that music is playing equally loudly in all rooms of the hotel and he can do nothing about it...

if you have a desire to listen to loud music day and night, this hotel is the best choice.

Review by Tipperarytom1974

We went to Bodrum for our first time to Turkey we decided that the mandarin resort hotel would be a good choice close to where we wanted to be. Location I have little to disagree with and for the general cleanliness of the hotel it was five stars however that is all the positives I have for my time stayed at this hotel. The staff were generally unfriendly and unhelpful However this cannot be said of the reception and cleaners bear that in mind the staff were not very good and the ratings for this hotel are clearly wrong I would not recommend more than three plus. The food particularly was bland and not the standard you would expect...

The drinks were designated by bar staff and were almost counted out per person. The five star hotel was run very tightly and was quite mean with food and drinks. However for a family friendly hotel it lacked one serious thing There was no ice cream 🙁 The hotel could be excellent however it needs an overhaul customer relations and some language skills could help though this maybe negative I believe the staff do work hard and during my time the same staff where working every day I believe exhaustion maybe a factor in their mood and behaviour

Stop off for one night before main holiday

Review by 757grahamp Sandhurst, United Kingdom

Located a short walk from the centre. It has a nice reception and the staff were helpful checking us in. The rooms were ok but the cleanliness of bathroom wasn’t up to standard...

We slept comfortably with no interruptions or noise. Lovely pools and water slide provided, with pool side bar providing snacks and drinks. We noted that despite the good measures provided, their local gin was low in strength. It was all inclusive, the main restaurant provided a good buffet and food was good. Lovely omelet cooked freshly at breakfast and meat in the evening. Would be happy to stay here again.
