Recent guest reviews
We've stayed in Kefaluka for a week from 1st June and had a wonderful stay, i highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Bodrum. Kefaluka is a very good hotel with a fantastic location & view and lots of entertainment & great staff (but don't expect to see luxury furniture everywhere & luxury food every day like some of the more luxury hotels) i've been to many hotels in Turkey but i had the best experience in Kefaluka. View: The view of our room was exceptional, the rooms in Kefaluka have a fantastic mixed view of sea & the beautiful graden which made me smile every time i looked at the rview our room had. Cleanness: I'm a sensitive person when it comes to cleanness but the overall cleanness is very good, rooms are cleaned every day and the hotel area is very clean, there are staff cleaning the area until midnight. Animation team: The animation team is excellent, the team are young & energetic and very polite with a smile they do their best to be your friend and they do insist on joining the games & events and they do their best to help you enjoy the games & events. I've been to a few resorts in Turkey and i've seen animation teams of different hotels and this team made us enjoy our stay more than all other. The animation team also work very very hard they start the games from 10'o clock until 6pm and they continue their work until midnight by inviting to events & they also warm up the dance floor until midnight in the mini disco. The hotel animation team also had a performance in amphitheater which we enjoyed more the all other shows performed by professionals! I would like to thank the animation team for the joy they gave us during our stay in Kefaluka, thanks for every thing. Events: There are different type of events in the hotel, there are events at amphitheater at some nights which will be announced daily in the lifts & the board beside the pools and there was a foam party at the beach at 4pm one day that was very fun. We've enjoyed most of the events & they were very entertaining. Sea & pool: Pools are big enough and finding a sun bed was easy (not that easy afternoon! keep your place during the day!) the sea is awsome too very clean water & sandy beach. Location: The location is a bit far from city center (10 minutes from Turgutreis and 30 minutes from Bodrum center) we didn't use a taxi to get to Bodrum but other guest said rates vary between 70 to 120 TL based on taximeter. Overall we had a fantastic week in Kefaluka and we enjoyed it so much that we left the hotel only once during a week! thanks Kefaluka!
We have just returned from a week in Kefaluka. the place is Amazing, I would 100% recommend to friend and will return in the future. It has everything you could wish for and more. Everything is spotless, the gardens, the pool and the rooms. The children loved the stay 8 and 11 - they played Darts, Water polo and football, they didn't want to come home. special mention has to go out for the entertainment team especially Ali my boys loved him and he is a credit to the hotel. My wife done the Aqua aerobics and Zomba everyday and loved it, and I played Football at 17.00 with the reps. We used the gym and this was also great. The food was great with loads of different themes, the only thing i would say is my kids sometime struggled with lunch so we would order a burger in the snack bar and take this upstairs with us so we could sit together. we used the Turkish resultant for a a-Le-cart and this was excellent, on the beach front with great setting and the food was lovely. The staff for the whole hotel are great, the restaurant staff are very good and prob the best we have ever had - always keeping you drinks topped up and chatting with the kids. The evening shows are excellent with lots of hard work put into this - they even give you popcorn and my kids loved that. The beach is lovely with a nice pier area. The huts at the end looked lovely but no-won used they the whole time we was there because they are so expensive (about £175) for a family, this is because you get breakfast and dinner severed to you and you drinks - but i think they could offer different options like, with or without staff, or half day options. booked with onthe beach and used Private taxi and this was great also We done a boat trip offered by their rep and this was great, only 30 mins drive with all food and drink supplied, stopped at some places for the boys to jump in. This place is a gem and we will return, thanks again for a fantastic holiday and great memories that will stay with us forever.
We have just returned from spending a week at the resort, it was absolutely fabulous! Beautiful gardens, lovely pool areas, everything was spotless, the food was plentiful and tasty, the entertainment team great as were the shows, I especially liked the pier area and the little bar there where you could get tasty snacks,the staff were exceptional, we couldn't fault anything and hope to return next year.
We were there for almost 5 days and it was one of our best travel ever. The staffs were too friendly and helpful to guests. They offer us lots of different packages and this resort has got lots you can do. Bowling, tennis, billiard, water polo and lots of more. Also there are some perfect entertainment shows. I recommend it to you for sure and I know you will enjoy as much as we did.
This was my first time to Kefaluka, on the recommendation of a friend who had been a few years ago and it is safe to say it did not disappoint! The hotel was spotless, from the rooms to the restaurants, to the outside spaces. Everywhere was so clean and tidy, with staff constantly about ensuring this was the case. The staff, well they are something else! Every single staff member we met....reception, waiters, bar staff, in the spa and the entertainment team were all so friendly, attentive, polite, good fun and made a fantastic holiday even better. The entertainment during the day and on an evening was excellent and varied. Certainly something for everyone. The facilities and grounds as well mean there is always something to do or somewhere in the resort to explore. If you have not had a traditional Turkish spa before i would certainly recommend this one, it was by far the best spa treatment I have ever had! I had read reviews before I went that the food could be a bit repetitive, I certainly did not find this the case. There is such a wide selection of food, with themed nights in the buffet restaurant as well as the a la carte choices. Our room had everything we needed, was very spacious and the view was spectacular! I am already planning when I can return! Thank you to all at Kefaluka for an AMAZING holiday!
Arrived to a good welcome by staff, our room was clean and spacious however the fridge kept making a very loud buzzing noise which we reported immediately at reception we were told this would be rectified while we went for drinks at the bar, on returning to our room at approx. midnight the fridge had not been seen to so had to go back to reception and wait for a maintenance man to fix it which he did by disconnecting the fridge altogether so was left with a fridge that did not work. PROS: The grounds,rooms, public toilets and bars are 100% spotless and cleaned constantly, grounds are exceptionally well maintained. Bar and Restaurant staff are generally pleasant but in our opinion could be friendlier or at least smile once in a while! Drinks are excellent especially the cocktails. Sunbeds and parasol's are always available and the different variety of sunbeds including hammocks, settees, boats and pods made each bathing day a little different and always comfortable. Snacks, cakes and ice creams were wonderful. Bottles of water, coffee and tea always available. Rooms cleaned everyday to a good standard. The Spar is fabulous, would definitely recommend a massage here. CONS: For us this hotel was too far away from anything, we like to go for a stroll but there is no where to do this, even the beach is too small to do this, this resort is great if you don't mind being confined to it, there are shuttle buses and taxis but it is around a 30 minute drive to Bodrum (20 euros each way). There are plenty of drinking areas to sit on an evening however there is no 'Bar feel' its like sitting in a large reception area (indoors) apposed to a bar atmosphere and (outdoors) again just lots of seats but no friendly atmosphere, this was made worse as there are only a handful of English/Scottish among the hundreds of guests. Food was ok at best for us, this is just our opinion of course but we found there was plenty of choice but again probably due to the English being the minority not catered for the English at all, breakfast was ok as we could get an omelette, boiled egg or toast but if you wanted cereal this is very limited and seems to cater this for children, Lunch in our opinion was always the best as there was always a good selection of salad and cheeses, there is a lack of cold meats. Dinner we always struggled to find something to our liking, again lots of choice but catered for the Turkish and the Polish, there is a Chinese quarter serving noodles and rices but they were very tasteless. The Al A Carte restaurants available you are only allowed one of them once per week, so although they have the Mexican (which was lovely) and the Italian you can only use one of them if you are staying for 1 week, so we only got chance to use the Mexican during our stay. SUMMERY: Exceptionally well maintained clean hotel, in the middle of nowhere, guests are mainly Polish or Belgian, food not catered for the English. Drinks exceptional. Staff friendly enough.
We returned to Kefaluka for the 5th time this year and know the hotel quite well. The hotel standard has never diminished which is why we keep coming back for a relaxing week in the sun. if that is what you want to do - this is definitely the place to visit. There were several notable additions this year and improvements - i.e. the mexican restaurant, the food choices extended at patisserie, gozleme and kebai restaurants - which were all great. We used the hotel shuttle to Turgetris and the public bus into Bodrum - all very reasonably priced and easy to organise with hotel reception staff. My only quibble and its relatively small this year was the bar staff and the quality of drinks. This seemed to vary depending on what bar you visited (pool, lounge or hookah bar) and the staff members who served you.The bar staff were very young and not all appeared to be trained to know how to make specific drinks which appeared on the bar menu. Once bar staff member used his phone to google the ingredients of a black russian one afternoon at the hookah bar and they need to be encouraged to use the alcohol measure and not free lance - a lot of drinks we received were simply too strong! I think this is down to a staff training issue and it was very early in the season - we have never experienced this problem before and didn't just happen once but on a daily basis. We would visit the resort again as this is a very small issue to resolve.
Just returned from staying 11 days at this hotel.Been to Turkey 25 times and stayed in lots of 5* all inclusive hotels all over the country and this must rate in the top 5.The views from the sea facing balconies are stunning. The staff are brilliant who serve you with style and a smile.The hotel amenities are first class, including the Spa and pool areas.Cem and other members of animation team work really hard to look after all your entertainment and sporting needs.Our only complaint was the evening that we booked the Italian a la carte,the staff on the night could have seemed more interested and gave better service and the main course food was delivered on cold plates with food that was so cold it was uneatable. Overall though we had a great holiday and would certainly recommend this hotel.
Everything was very good! The room was clean and big enough for the 4 of us, only the kids wanted to sleep a part but all rooms had sofa beds. The food was also very good, enough varieties for every test and fresh. The animation team were over the top! We were all the time entertained, the kids were taken care of in the kids club and every night there was kids program, even nice lunch specially for them! We didn’t have to leave the hotel there was enough to do, every thing you can think of, from spa to game rooms, different restaurants and sea sport. We went to Bodrum using public bus, was also very easy, safe and clean! We will definitely comeback again!
Good hotel for older people or for couples with small kids. Poor animators, very poor shows Food in hotel is kinda good, but nothing special, in one week, only twice it was good for me. Meeh.. The view from rooms is superb.. just wow! Hotel is very clean, very nice pools, good bartenders and waiteres (in the loby bar was little bit slow, but I think there was a new workers (specialy one girl, she always forgets the drinks)) I would recommend this hotel for older people, couple with kids, not for the company with friends ;)
