The staff were helpful even though they struggled with English a little, the buffet was rich with choices day and night. Our rooms were first floor garden view and while they were quiet; it overlooked a small garden and faced another side of the hotel. It was easy to get a cab as the hotel entrance had a button that linked to a cab company up the hill. It is nice for a short stay though..
My partner and I wanted to go somewhere to relax and unwind. I read some of the reviews prior to going......some positive some not so good. Our experience.....amazing. A short travel from Bodrum airport....roughly around 37k. On arrival it was just after 11pm however the hotels first impression did not fail to impress. The cleanliness and upkeep of outside and inside we were greeted with style, cleanliness and grandure. Check in was simple and painless.... Front of house was welcoming.....informative and polite.....we were shown to our rooms with a porter taking lead with our luagge and showing the way. Lifts easy and accessible. When we were lead into our room my partner and I were gobsmacked. Our room was stunning. The bathroom clean, modern and fitted beautiful. The wardrobe space was vast electric points ample. The safe and minibar available to use. Prices in the mini bar very reasonable. The bed was huge and comfortable. Decor was lovely and rich in warmth and grandure. The area outside the room had direct sea views. Two sun loungers and two chairs a table and an umbrella.... Perfect for sunbathing there if you wish. The maid service was excellent rooms cleaned practically everyday except once...... Fresh supply of towels daily. There is no iron or kettle in the room.... So if u want remember and bring a travel kettle and iron. There is a hair dryer in the bathroom and I used this daily. There is a tv however we did not use this so unable to inform what English channels were available. Free wifi available and very good. The hotel is half board however there is a 24 hour room service....menu and prices listed in the room..very reasonable however unable to comment on room service. Breakfast was between 7.30-10am...fantastic choices of conitinenal options and hot food...fresh fruit in ambulance, tea, coffee and fruit juices. Breakfasts were peaceful, and service amazing. The waiters were exceptional....,poilete..friendly and delivered a very high standard of service. Tea was from 7-9pm......again the food choice was ample, fresh and of very good quality. My partner and I stayed 1 week and were never bored or could complain about the food. Again I cannot say enough......the waiting staff were fantastic! The outdoor pool was amazing....,. Towels supplied daily for the sun loungers..... Pool area very clean. The private beach is less than 4 min walk and beautiful...there is a bar service at the beach where you can also grab snacks and ice cream, again prices very reasonable. The hotel widely advertises no food and drink fro outside is allowed brought into the hotel and I agree..... The prices are very reasonable and there is no need to bring anything in. The spa service in the hotel is exceptional.... I got a hot stone massage and my partner got a classic massage......treatment and staff excellent, prices reasonable....highly recommend. The indoor pool is of fantastic size and the deepest depth 145cm. The indoor jazcuzzi lovely. Again the cleanliness of the hotel stands out. Bodrum centre can be reached via water taxi by the private beach which costs 12 tl for two....it is a lovely experience...frequency is regular....if you prefer to walk it only takes around 10-15 mins....the only strenuous part of the walk is walking from the hotel to the main road......which isn't that bad then it's downhill from there. Overall our experience meet all our expectations. Not once did we receive a bad service and we were always treated well and made feel welcomed. I recommend this hotel if you want to relax and unwind. Location fantastic. Setting fantastic. Turkey.....thank you xx
I had a nice stay at this Hotel. The staff are nice but the reception staff are a little unfriendly and dis-organised. When I decided to extend my stay by three days they promised me a late check out on my last day, but on the last day told me a late checkout would cost an extra 50 Euros. The meals are wonderful - really high standard if you enjoy Turkish cuisine. Fresh fruit, great desserts, fresh omelettes at breakfast. The Kitchen and bar staff are great - especially Fatma in the Poolside bar - she works long hours and does her best to keep everybody happy! Will be coming back
Second visit to the Azka this year Chose room with perfect sea view. Luckily our visit coincided with a visiting Latino dance team who where amazing.Perfect food and facilities. We chose half board but has quite a shock as all evening meal drinks were chargeable which you sign for,but no one could show us any drinks prices or tariffs or how much we were signing for,when I questioned this omission at the check out, the desk staff just shrugged and said "sorry" , needless to say drinks were excessive but it was to late! So beware won't be going back as not the deal we thought we had..
I stayed there several times over a decade. They have a quality standard which they have maintained for a long time and it is not easy thing to find in Turkey. Pros and cons are as following; Pros: Rooms are renovated and well equipped. I strongly recommend you to take a deluxe room facing the sea, the view is amazing. Staff are mostly well trained, problem solving and friendly. The beach facilities are ok, you can always find a vacant sun bed although the area is kind of small. The sea is enchanting, one of the best you can find in Turkey, blue flagged anyway. Breakfast is quite ok. Last but not least, this hotel is "amazingly cheap" with respect to things they serve. Cons: They still compel quests to buy soft drinks, like a bottle of water from the hotel. This is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. Because it is a lose-lose situation. Guests feel uncomfortable to buy a bottle of water which is 3 times more expensive and the hotel management looks cheesy, considering the fact that they do not have too much benefit from selling water. The dinner was poor, I can easily say that. They need to work on this. Hotel's beach is also open to public, according to the law. They need to pay to use sun beds, which is something you should know. All these pros and cons are very much dependent on the situation which Turkey is in. The hotel was quite empty because of the intense relationship between Turkey and Russia. The bottomline is, I was quite satisfied with my stay in Azka and with this prices, this hotel is the only one that I will stay when I come to Bodrum.
Some late review, but I would like to share with you, dear travelers . I stayed there for 15 nights from 9th of August 2014 and one night in August 2015. But new 2016 Turkish dizi about Bodrum , remembered me about my magic holidays. Hotel location was great with a lovely look over to Bardakçı harbour. The Water taxi runs from just outside the next door hotel e.g. near to the Tay beach club to Bodrum harbour and is very handy. It runs about every 15mins from 8am to There was an entertainment I remembered the most : Latin songs with very nice life music band . I saw them after at Tango Bodrum restaurant. They sang all my beautiful songs and we enjoyed that Saturday night very much. As for animation team, I did not see them . I actually thought there was no animation team at that time as nobody spoke to me (that made me very happy ). Evening entertainment only occurred some times, but I preferred to go out to numerous Dondurma, cafe and bars in Gumbet and Bodrum with my friends. The hotel guests were very nice mostly Turkish families with children ( locals or from NY or Germany) which was nice and I enjoy chatting very much. Now the best I found in the hotel there was : the team started from the reception, waiters, fitness and SPA. Very nice, polite, attentive and extremely welcoming . Thanks to very professional and good management, customer service was on the very high level. Bravo and well done . The food was very good , not a big choice but it was presented very well. Rice pudding with cinnamon mmmm. I can not forget. Every dinner there was Baklava as a desert and a lot of herbs dry and fresh ... I will mention again that the waiters were very good, one in particular who was very hard working and keen to please and served me my drinks ax far as I came for dinner . They were all friendly and made me feel welcome every time . I had seaview room (1232) located on the same floor as Fitness center, located in the main building . As for me I prefer healthy way of life and I'm keen of swimming which was excelente . There were not any waves at all on sandy hotel beach. But note, that there were some visitors on the beach , not from hotel gets. I don't care. I have always had subbed. And the second , but the most wonderful about beach hotels , there is a perfect , almost profesional , big enough , very well equipped fitness center. And in 2015 after some reparation it became much more better than in 2014. Very, very well equipped . And they added some new modern machines and increase space in 2015. So if you like to be fit , Azka hotel is the best choice for you. I couldn't tell about SPA area and it's manager, they are perfect. In 2015 it was refreshed new ice room appeared. Hammam from Top Kapı Saray. Sauna was very hot . There was indoor swimming pool, as well , which we enjoyed a lot. Thank you for the perfect moments of relax and enjoyment. It is not all inclusive resort , so you have to pay for the drinks. As I drank mostly water and cappuccino it was not expensive at all for me. However the bar staff was very nice and I liked speak with them in English. As I told, getting a sunbed was no problem, especially at 8-9 in the morning. It did get busier by lunchtime and after 16.00 came locals from Bodrum. If you’re a keen tennis player , there was a squash hall and tennis court. The room was kept clean and was typical . I was lucky as the balcony faced a bay it was very romantic to meet sea and sunrise in the morning. I did enjoy this holiday very much . I also stayed in another hotel in Yalıkavak with same category, but with was almost in twic e expensive which I found poor to compare with Azka. If all inclusive and the animation team activities are not your things, but location, beach, service, fitness they are, then this would be a good hotel to stay. I recommend this hotel to my friends and I will be happy to return one beautiful day. Çok teşekkür ederim . Victoria
My Parthner Booked a Holiday for us at the Hotel for my Birthday. It was the Most amazing Holiday ever. The Staff was Amazing! All very friendly helpful and would go out their way to make sure that we was having a good time. They even surprised me with a Birthday Cake for my Birthday Made form the things that the found out I like during our stay. The hotel has easy access to the water taxi very easy and exciting way to get to the centre of Bodrum. There are a lot of activities to do with the Rep on the Private beach booking everything for you even when he finished work. They pick you up from the hotel and bring you back. The food was Amazing breakfast and dinner and the drinks was amazing aswell. Grate cocktails. The facilities was very good and clean the Turkish bath sauna indoor and our door pool even tho the ocean is right there. I would definitely recommend it and I will definitely be back.
AZKA is a fabulous hotel in Bodrum. The rooms are modern, comfortable and clean with a fabulous view. The staff are professional, friendly and helpfull. AZKA has the best beach that I have seen in Bodrum. Perfect location. 15 minuts walk to Bodrum City. Good cuisine with extensive menu for every meal. I have been there to times. A hotel with everything you need for a holiday in the sun. It's Highly Recommended👌
We have recently come back from this hotel, and we had the best time ever! The staff are brilliant and hotel is very clean and tasteful and comfortable. We had a deluxe room with sea view, it was a lovely clean comfortable room with stunning views. The food Is buffet breakfast and dinner with a good choice. But with all hotels with half board can be a bit repetitive. But saying that the food at the pool bar is very nice. The hotel is situated in a great location, with easy access to the main town of Bodrum. We travel a lot and must say its one of the best hotels we've stayed in and deserves its 5*. All the staff are very friendly and really helpful, the waiter that stood out for us was Ahmid he really looked after us.And Kanon) who's in charge of the restaurant and bar they both were exceptional! They Couldn't have been anymore helpful and really nice people. I don't know why this hotel isn't a higher rating that it is. We don't agree on some of the the negative reviews in our experience .We would highly recommend this hotel to others. A+++++
Fantastic hotel, with fantastic staff very very clean, no language problems someone available that speaks English in every part of the hotel. Easy transfers to bodrum by a water taxi only takes 5 min or a 5 min taxi to gumbet both very different but both well worth a visit. Food totally amazing buffet style, expect to put on weight as so much to choose from. Well worth the extra money to have a sea view. We have never been to the same place twice until we found Azka Otel, we have now been for the last two years and will be going again next year.
