La Blanche  

This seafront hotel gives you a choice of pool or private beach. And the five restaurants serve food from around the world.

This hotel comes with a big lagoon pool that’s just steps from a private strip of sand. And when it comes to food, you’ve got five restaurants to choose from, including a sea-view Mediterranean place.

There’s plenty to do on the beach, from volleyball to watersports, and there are tennis courts and a spa in the grounds. In the evenings, you can watch shows in the beachside amphitheatre.

Going back

We were already 10 times in La Blanche, most of the time twice in the same year. The raison why we do go back is because the service in the restaurants (main , snack , à la carte) in the bars, the spa, is from a very high level and all the staff is very kindly. Some members of the staff we know very good and we appouve that the (high) management give them a promotion. The years before 2015 the quality and the choice from the food was less than the year(s) before. This year with the new kitchenteam and the new buffet equipment in the main restaurant the difference was good perceptible. More choice and a beautiful arrangement from the dishes. It is always nice to go back because we feel like a part of the La Blanche “family”! More

Been to better

After a very lengthy check in at mid night we went to our rooms at separate parts of the complex! We went with our parents! They wouldn't change as told us they were over subscribed! The hotel was really quiet actually as we found out when Ramadan & schools finished! This became a scrum fight at dinner times and Polish and Russian were really rude! They don't queue they just push in! We had items stolen too but the staff don't speak English and couldnt get anyone to understand! This is a big thing and they need to sort this! The animation team try their best but after being to other hotels in bodrum was very amateur! Although they are not too pushy they do aim for youngsters! And don't tend to bother with the older generation. They were very friendly but a little too friendly to young girls! Flaunting it too wasn't nice! They need to be spoken to as they are tainting the reputation of the hotel with their behaviour! The beach is lovely with sand mostly and a lovely beach bar that you can sit on and enjoy the breeze whilst getting a tan! The al a carte isn't great as you have to queue for a hour each morning if you want to get one! The Chinese is worth queuing for but think there should be another way as this is another hour out of your day! You have to pay for the Italian al a carte but all the rest, fish, steak house and Chinese are all inclusive. There is also a pool bar that sells pizza salad etc. At 3pm lollies come out at the pool bar and at 4pm the cakes are at the sports bar! Nice! The boat trip is a must and the guys who promote this are great! Lots of fun and speak English! The water sports are good too just adjacent to the beach but also on site. Overall we had a great holiday but there are a few issues this hotel needs to sort to make future guests holidays better! More

Jane R,

Bad Expierence

Check in was awful at 3am in the morning, didn't have our booking so ended up being in rooms on the opposite side of the hotel from my parents. I explained that we had paid a lot of money for this hotel as you can see from the Thomson Website and that we would of liked to be in at least the same block due to this being a family holiday! After complaining the next day again about the rooms at the front desk, we were spoken to so rudely by the supervisor Isa that we ended up swapping rooms to adjoining rooms, something we didn't pay for. But this was taking up so much time of our first day of holiday we didn't want the stress anymore. Rooms let this hotel down so much. I have been to a number of platinum hotels with Thomson and this is no platinum hotel. Cleaners don't clean your room till gone 4pm and plates and are left around the communal areas of the buildings for days on end with food still on it. The communal areas of the blocks are really dated and need a good clean. When the rooms do finally get cleaned they must change the toilet roll and lay the bed with the so called bed sheet which feels like the a really rough towel. The only thing that keeps this hotel going is the pool and their private beach. This really makes up for it, although if you like lie ins and want a sunbed prepare to miss out. We were up at half 7 putting towels down as past 8 o clock you had no hope of getting a sun bed. One morning a family member was awake at 4.30am and looked out and seen people putting towels down. The hotel staff were starting to take the towels away but this didn't last long. The restaurant wasn't anything special, one night the staff cleared a dirty table away for me and my family and never came back with any cutlery. I ended up laying the table myself for the 7 of us. Food was average, we tried the Chinese and Turkish restaurant which were very nice but to book these are a joke. I tried to book 3 times and on my fourth I sat at guest relations from 9am (Opens at 10am) to book and obviously got a booking for that evening. They really need to sort out this system. If you have been to a 4/5 star hotel and booked with Thomson before, do not expect to have the same service as this is more like a 3 star. A number of people we spoke to had complained and were still waiting to complain whey the rep finally arrived. I didn't interact with any of the staff at all and couldn't even tell you any of their names apart from the supervisor, but once I got off the plane at Luton and checked my Facebook I had a member of staff adding me. Non of my self or my family had checked us in or made any comment about being in the La Blanche hotel, the only details the hotel had from us was our passport details which I found very strange and didn't appreciate. Obviously I blocked him. Disappointing trip and nearly 2 days wasted with bad service and room changing. If you do go to this hotel, I can recommend the spa and hairdresser, all staff were lovely and helpful. We also did the boat trip through Eddie, you can find him opposite the towel shack. Great day out and kids go free, adults were £15.00 each and boat picks you up form the lagoon at the hotel. Thomson charges £44 per adult and £21.00 per child. Same trip and boat. Wifi was good in the rooms and reception area. You don't get a great reception at the pool side.More

OK

My husband and i arrived at La Blanche at 1:30am and had to queue up (along with approximately 18 other people) to check in this seemed to take forever and there was little organisation, by this time we just wanted to get to our room. The staff barely spoke to us, no hello or greeting of any kind. Our room to be fair was nice, with pool & sea view and we had a jacuzzi too which was a great surprise. The room was clean but the sink plug did not work, the bulb in one of the lamps had broke and one of the jacuzzi buttons had broke. The cleaners came in daily but just made the bed, changed towels,emptied bins and wiped bathroom area. The laminate floor was never hoovered/ cleaned and the dressing table area was never wiped. Carpeted area to our room didn't seem to get hoovered whilst we were there and was very stained. The main restaurant was like school canteen very noisy and very rude holiday makers pushing in constantly when queuing up for food, i dreaded going there mid holiday onwards, and ended up walking to Turgutreis and ate there . Many a time we would sit down to eat our food with no cutlery and not even be offered a drink, which both we had to go and get ourselves. Lots of food choice but its the same every day. Snack bar food was ok but very limited choice again the same every day and not good if you are a veggie ! Queueing up (in the non air conditioned reception) for 45 mins to book the A la Carte restaurant is an absolute joke we only did Turkish in the end and it was ok though we had no clue what we were eating as we were just given the plates of food. We found that about 99% of the staff could understand English and they were not particularly friendly in fact two were particularly rude in the 24 hour bar and snack bar areas. The entertainment was ok after, the entertainment in the amphitheatre, it moved to beach bar which is far too small to accommodate the amount of holiday makers, we went several times and couldn't get a seat or table so gave up and sat on our room balcony and listened to the music. Trying to get a sunbed by the pool was ridiculous we actually watched several holiday makers regularly reserve the beds around midnight, the hotel states that reservation of sunbeds is not allowed but do absolutely nothing about it. My hubby set an alarm for 5am to get a sunbed only to find that they had all been reserved. We understand you have to get up early to get a pool spot but this was absolutely ridiculous!!! The beach was very small and was quite stoney but we found it much quieter there. Wifi... what wifi, absolute waste of time constantly disconnecting!! All in all, only because of location (lovely walk into Turgutreis) and views (stunning especially when sun is setting) we did enjoy our 10 days there. However we have both agreed that there needs to be improvements and for this reason. we feel we would not return. Catherine the Thomson rep was excellent, very knowledgeable and helpful, a credit to the company.More

Really not a 5 star...

Just returned from la blanche hotel and already decided were not going back..on arrival the hotel looks great the check in went smooth..then it comes to getting up for a bed in the morning.. people are getting up at the crack of dawn to put towels on beds..then you go down for breakfast it felt like I was in butlers holiday camp 40 years ago..you have to find a table and quite often put your own cutlery on it to reserve it as most of them aren't set up after being used..then it's the same for every meal it's just like a cattle market at meal times..besides the food choice being very repetitive and not really hot..The snack bar all day only offers burgers..doers with hardly any meat in..or some sort of cheese wrap..It was all not worth the wait..It tried to book one of the Al a carte meals and after queuing up from 10. Am like I was told when I got to the desk they said they are all gone we only have limited tables come back tomorrow so I did ..only to get the same reply..crazy??? All in all it is really not one of the good hotels that I would recommend oh and the air con in the room is rubbish the coldest setting on it was 18 degrees and I could blow harder..I walked down to the village every night for a drink and a bite to eat which was a lovely experience it's a lovely stroll and only took 10 min ...hope this helps someone decide there fate..good holidays everyone.
