Fantastic holiday in fantastic weather in a great hotel
We arrived home last night after a fantastic week at the amara island hotel. Although the hotel isn't completely finished, nothing going on behind the scenes affected our holiday. Beautiful views over the sea. Our only disappointment is that it is in the middle of nowhere so unless you got the bus into bodrum you were stuck in the hotel. Next year when the hotel opens properly with proper entertainment then this probably wouldn't be too much of a problem. Entertainment team do a fantastic job though and all the bar staff and waiting staff were brilliant, couldn't do enough for you. All in all a fab holiday.

Perfect location and spotless
Amara Island Bodrum Elite is a new lovely hotel just opened in mid July. Its in a perfect location between Bodrum airport and city centre just takes 15-20 mins where you can find the best night clubs. We have stayed in this hotel for a week between 30 August and 6th September. Our room was very specious and it was the cleanest hotel that I have ever stayed in so far. There are 3 big swimming pools one of them for kids with water slides. The view is amazing all around the hotel. Food is very good and they serve very good quality alcohol (not cheap stuff). There is a restaurant open for 24 hours just by the main Pina restaurant outside. Spa activities are worth trying and you can always negotiate the price, if not Turkish hamam is free to use everyday. There is a really good hairdresser offering reasonable prices. Guest relations are really good and staff in general quite friendly and helpful. Only down point was the waiting time to get a tea or coffee to be served during breakfast. Not sure why it takes so long but you can always help yourself. Note: I was told that the hotel will shut down in end of October for further construction of villas and a bigger beach. So before you book check with the provider. Also Thomascook should provide real images of the hotel as the images are not same on the webpage. Overall this hotel is really good as it is and I cant wait to see how its going to be like next year when further finishing touches are completed.
