TORBA MEVKII BODRUM-TORBA Turkey Bodrum, Turkey
Amy Adejokun Section editor

Small and charming hotels such as this one are a rare find in Bodrum. This is not a place where you come looking for entertainment and day-long activities, but rather for serenity and calm, somewhere conducive to resting. The decor may not always be very tasteful, but it's impossible to escape the tranquillity permeating the establishment. The near-silence around the swimming pools and the happy faces of the other guests are particularly appreciated. There is nothing in the way of facilities, but as this is a place meant for relaxation, not much is needed.

    Location 9.02 /10

    The Zeytinada is located on the road to Torba, just under 4 mi from Bodrum. It takes around 10 minutes to drive to, and is not reachable on foot because of the expressway you are obliged to take to get there. The Zeytinada's immediate surroundings are not exactly the most welcoming. Due to the proximity of the road to the hotel, the noise of the traffic can be regularly heard. It takes about half an hour to cover the approximately 17 mi that will take you to the hotel.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    With a meagre 38 rooms to start off with, the hotel now boasts 78 accommodation units. They are divided among 2 storey buildings strewn across the estate. The standard rooms are well equipped (air conditioning, safe, minibar...), but the interior doesn't live up to the expectations set by the hotel. In the family rooms, however, the mix of furniture and colours is a lot more convincing! Despite everything, there is no denying that the guest rooms exude comfort. In the bathroom, a soap dispenser has sadly replaced the traditional hospitality products. The size of the rooms is very decent.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Despite being opened in 1999, you wouldn't be able to tell this about the Zeytinada just by looking at it. The infrastructures are well kept, although the interior often shows a severe lack of harmony. Guests enter through the small lobby that, despite being surrounded by bay windows, is a rather dimly lit area. However, the reception staff greets you with a very friendly smile. Lounge areas have been scattered about the room, but the furniture seems somewhat out of place. Outside, you will find a pretty setting that provides a beautiful view. Surrounded by lush vegetation, the hotel's swimming pool is the perfect place to relax on one of the deckchairs.. A small children's pool is located just next to it. There is a second pool available in the hotel's garden. Thanks to its slightly out of the way location, this is a very calm spot. If you feel you could do with some pampering, don't miss a visit to the wellness centre. The place is well equipped but sadly there is no individual massage parlour...

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    During our visit, only the hotel's main restaurant was open. It serves a buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Located at the far end of the building, it is regrettably not very accessible. It serves international cuisine, but you can also taste some local culinary specialities. However, you can see that a bit of effort was put into decorating it, which makes for quite a welcoming area. The brick wall adds to the friendly and pleasant setting. You can have your meals indoors, or on the outdoor terrace facing the swimming pool. Furthermore, if you are just looking for a light lunch, head for the swimming pool bar.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    Due to the establishment's location on the heights of the Torba of Zeytinada, it does not afford direct access to the sea. In order to compensate for this drawback, the hotel has put together a beach some 300m away. It even provides a shuttle service to those who'd like to go there. Deckchairs and parasols are available on the spot; some have been laid out on a sandy patch and the others have been placed on a platform. The seabed is strewn with pebbles. The establishment does not include a nautical sports centre but it is possible to partake in such activities at the nearby independently-run centre.

    To know

    As with most hotels in Bodrum, the Zeytinada is open during the summer season from April to October.
    The clientele is mainly European and made up of couples. You'll also come across families, but mostly just during the school holidays.
    During our visit, the hotel's la carte restaurant was closed. The management had decided to move it up to the top floor of the main building, so as to give diners the opportunity to enjoy the terrace.

      • Location 9.02

      If the Karia Princess Hotel were a woman, she'd be a slightly behind-the-times old lady, but charming nevertheless. Depending on your taste the hotel is either stuffy and not to your liking at all, or, reminiscent of more civilised times gone by. In any case, while the hotel is far from being perfect, it is however a refreshing change from the sometimes characterless fare on offer in Bodrum.

      LUX* Bodrum Resort & Residences opened its doors for the first time in June 2017. It's the first Mauritian facility in the Mediterranean. Just like all hotels, this place plays with the concept of "Lighter and Brighter," but it also plays with the concept of "Reasons to Go", (these are just a few good reasons to stay at LUX* Bodrum Resort & Residences) to show and priotise their clients priviledges.
