Combining charm and understated luxury, the Divan Bodrum is the perfect place for a relaxing and romantic break in one of the prettier villages on the Bodrum peninsula. Topped off by discreet and professional customer service, this hotel is also great for those who don't mind basing themselves a bit further away from the action.

    Location 3.17 /10

    The Divan Bodrum is waterfront in the lovely village of Golturkbuku, about 12 miles from Bodrum centre and 28 miles from Milas-Bodrum international airport. Golturkbuku, on the northern coast of the Bodrum peninsula, is often cited as "Turkey's St Tropez" noted for its ability to attract hip, young things from Istanbul and further afield.

    Accommodation 9.45 /10

    The Divan Bodrum features 40 superior rooms, seven deluxe rooms, five suites and eight courtyard rooms (ranging from 33m² to 55m²), each beautifully decorated in a casual but sumptuous style that is harmonious with the hotel's surroundings. The rooms are a haven of calm but more importantly spacious, comfortable and immaculate, with a large flat screen TV, sitting area, ample wardrobe space and a marble-topped desk. The large beds are perfect to sink into after a long day in the sun, with the softest bedding you might ever experience. The evening turn-down service topped off with the hotel's own brand of Turkish delight is a classy touch. The bathrooms are spotless and of a medium size, well-stocked with Molton Brown toiletries and feature a large shower cabin but no bathtub. Finally, all rooms receive lashings of light thanks to the huge glass sliding doors, and on the other side you'll find a balcony or terrace with an outdoor setting, perfect to enjoy an aperitif at dusk.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    This charming waterfront hideaway is entered by a cosy library-cum-games room-cum-bar-cum-lobby where guests receive a warm, professional welcome. Built in 1998, this boutique hotel may just be the perfect size, 60 rooms, no more, no less, spread throughout a collection of two-storey buildings with an exposed-stone exterior. As the porters scurry away with your luggage, the walk to your room will take you through a courtyard passage with rock pool water features, shaded by wooden beams and mountains of greenery - a promising introduction to the hotel.

    The hotel masterpiece is the lovely lagoon-style pool, nestled in the lush and impeccably landscaped gardens. The abundance of palm trees and bougainvillea plants, combined with the overall sense of calm, will transport you a world away from the daily grind.

    There are two on-site restaurants, one poolside and one beachside, as well as a café/patisserie and fantastic alfresco bar conveniently placed between the beach and the pool.

    Access to the hotel's private beach is via a tiny gallery where local artists exhibit and sell their paintings and jewellery designs. Local artwork is also on display and available for purchase in the hotel lobby. Other facilities include a boutique (with suitable Riviera-chic ensembles), souvenir shop, hairdresser and photography service. The health and wellbeing centre, open from 9:00am until 9:00pm, is large for the hotel's size. The sauna and three massage rooms are complemented by the gazebos that act as outdoor massage areas. Holidaying athletes are also catered for with the hotel's basketball and tennis courts.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    Breakfast is served at the poolside restaurant, inside, or outside on the shaded terrace. The airy indoor section features wooden beams, high ceilings, exposed-stone walls, leather lounges and a fireplace. Rather than a buffet service, guests are served a set platter of Turkish cheeses, jams, local pastries, olives, cold cuts, tomato, cucumber and an assortment of bread. You can also order extras such as eggs, yoghurt, fruit and waffles etc.

    The Iskele restaurant situated at the beach serves delicious Mediterranean and Aegean cuisine and is perhaps a tad expensive for Turkey however not for the standard of hotel it is found in. The tables are neatly arranged on the boardwalk along the seashore, with the lights of Golturkbuku twinkling in the distance. The waiters are attentive, efficient, and easily recognised in their navy blue and white striped Breton t-shirts, while the clientele is a mix of well-to-do tourists and chic locals who come to dine under the stars with the water lapping at their feet.

    The food and drink is beautifully presented and the staff really goes the extra mile to ensure your dining experience is the best it can be, by offering excellent recommendations. Everything is fresh and of excellent quality; we tried the 'Sheppard Salad' (cucumber, tomato, mint, pomegranate and lemon vinaigrette) and the 'catch of the day' (grouper with grilled aubergine).

    Meanwhile, at the hotel's beach bar there is a good selection of aperitifs and cocktails and the only negative was the price of some of these; 18TL (£7.70) for a glass of local white wine and 30TL (£12.85) for even the most basic of cocktails (Bloody Mary, Cuba Libre). There is also the Divan Patisserie and Lobby Bar for refreshments, while room service is available 24 hours a day.

    Beach 6.95 /10

    The hotel beach is not so much a beach but a narrow strip of sand overtaken by a small deck kitted out with a few sun loungers and parasols. It's in a pretty spot in the bay of Golturkbuku yet it is also surrounded on both sides by bars and restaurants therefore the beach is neither private nor peaceful. However the glamourous parties of high summer ensure its cool status.

    To know

    Other than a children's pool there are no facilities for children, so the hotel is much more suited to holidaying couples and friends. WIFI connection is free throughout the hotel but for those without a laptop, there is free internet in the lobby.

      Run by a lovely Turkish husband and wife team, what was once a struggling family auberge is now a chic yet unpretentious boutique address. The antithesis of the huge, brash all-inclusive clubs that are so characteristic of the Bodrum area, the 4 Reasons Hotel + Bistro will impress not only for its local charm but for the excellent and personalised service from its hosts. Indeed, the '4 reasons' are serenity, design, quality and attitude; four areas where they wish to excel - and so far they haven't done a bad job!

      The Golden Age Hotel is a huge all inclusive property that is popular with a mostly British and European clientele. Built in 2001, there have not been any recent renovations to the resort and while its official classification is that of four stars, it feels closer to a very big three star hotel.

      The Delta Beach Resort is one of the larger all inclusive properties situated in the small fishing village of Yalikavak. With almost everything you could possibly need on-site, you may get the feeling you don't need to leave; whether this is a good or bad thing is up to you. On the other hand, the resort feels like a real four star hotel and not a three star hotel posing as a four star hotel!

But even mere mortals head to this sleek boutique address to admire the wonderful art and bask in the sunshine in style.

      'Humungous' is a word that comes to mind when thinking of the Club Magic Life in Bodrum. 'Families' is another. So if you like your holiday resorts on the extra-large side with a strong family atmosphere, the Club Magic Life could be for you. To be honest, as far as huge all-inclusive clubs go you could do worse for the resort is not only family-friendly but eco-friendly and lots of fun too.
