Vera Aegean Dream Resort  

Loading

Set on the Bodrum Peninsula, this place couldn’t be in a better spot. It’s tucked on the outskirts of Turgutreis, just a short walk from the marina and the nearest shops. Bodrum itself is about a 25-minute drive away. What’s more, the hotel has its own private stretch of sand and days can be snoozed away on one of the twin wooden jetties.

Its waterside location means all the outdoor areas offer widescreen Aegean views. And there are plenty of places to soak up the scenery. The activity pool, waterslide splash pool and the quiet pool all come with terraces and wooden sunbeds. Plus there are five bars and five restaurants serving everything from cocktails and seafood to Turkish kebabs – some with a side-order of sea views.

Inside, this place has interior-designed good-looks. The lobby works the marble and wicker look, with a circular wooden bar taking centre-stage. The standard bedrooms are all cream and trimmed with light wood furniture. And if you’re after something really special, upgrade to the Superior rooms which flaunt funky murals, boxy furniture and flatscreen TVs. These also come with exclusive access to a rooftop bar and unlimited use of the à la carte restaurants.

Of course, this seafront setting opens up a world of activities. The watersports menu ranges from windsurfing and scuba to high-speed thrill rides. On top of that, you’ve got archery targets, tennis courts and a football pitch to play with, not to mention more relaxing options like a mini cinema and spa.

up's & down's!

We checked in very late and were disappointed with our room which was very close to reception and rather tired looking with scuffed floors & full of rust with a view of the road. Luckily we were able to upgrade for 30 euros to the refurbished block and ended up with a family room. When we woke up in the morning it was like looking out at paradise!!! we were overlooking the beautiful sea and islands with a pool running underneath our block. ideal! the room was fine and very large. food was good, quite a good choice although puddings were quite samey each night, as was lunch pizza, burgers & chips each day which we found we didn't need so half board would have been sufficient. there are 3 a la carte restaurants which you had to book if you wanted to use them but after checking the menus we found they were the same as the main restaurant. The entertainment was actually ok bingo, quizzes, disco's etc but the young male staff put us off going down to the bar after the first few nights as they were eye balling my partner & standing around making us feel uncomfortable. There were lots of Dutch people at the resort, some being quite rude so beware!! but we did make friends with a Dutch couple who were a good laugh! We sunbathed most days on one of the jetty's which was beautiful but staff do harass you a bit to use the spa/scuba dive/go on boat trips. As we were there at the end of October the resort was fairly quiet but at the weekend there was a Turkish holiday & the hotel filled up with locals & we found the staff had even less respect for us then apart from a nice guy in the bar at the top of the building which has the most stunning views we have ever seen. The other thing which put us off this place was the amount of dogs that wandered around the resort and who were doing their business on the beach which put us off sitting on it! The spa is great and I had a great pedicure there, Overall, fantastic location for relaxing, weather was great but does get windy but wouldn't return due to the staff.More

not bad

The pool is too small for the number of guests that can occupy the hotel so be careful during peak season, the food is excellent, facilities are good, spa is good, entertainment is not first class but good all the same, there was a problem with kids drinking while I was there, the disco was an 'underage' paradise, and not an adult venue, I have to say also that I felt the staff were on the case of the girls too. And having experienced several different locations in Turkey's all Inc portfolio, I'd say this is not up to the standard of some of the other reasonably priced hotels.I enjoyed my stay there, but would not go back.More

Fantastic location!

Myself and my 2 daughters visited in August 2013. Check in was effortless and a bell boy assisted us with our luggage. The room we were allocated was on the first floor near reception. The room had a double bed and a pull out bed/futon. The view from the room was disappointing, a couple of large trees and the dusty road where the coach had dropped us off at reception. The sofa bed was extremely hard with no padding. Complained to reception who advised us to come back in the morning as currently there were no other rooms available. Returned to reception in the morning and we were given a room on the ground floor near to the restaurant. This room had 3 single beds in and was perfect, near to activity area and a wonderful view of the pool and the sea. The food is plentiful with plenty of choice. At breakfast you can choose from a bespoke omelette, freshly fried eggs, pancakes, cereal, vast array of different breads, yogurts, juices etc. Lunch and dinner in the main restaurant was lovely and carefully presented and every night there were different BBQ meats and fish cooking. The hand made bread and pizza were something else absolutly delish!! The hotel offers free water skiing, banana boat rides and a large water chair which is pulled along by a speed boat. This is the only hotel I know in Turkey that offers this activity free of charge!!! My kids had so much fun on the water slides which are located to the left of the main activity area. The weather was superb in the 30's everyday and the great thing about Turgutreis (meaning windy) is the breeze which is welcoming just make sure you apply plenty of high factor sunscreen or you'll end up looking like Mr Crabs from Spongebob! There is a road that runs along the seafront that's a pleasant walk which takes you to the small town and marina. Plenty of shops, restaurants and bars to explore. The market is well worth a visit, be sure to haggle to grab yourself a bargain although at the end of the experience one may feel slightly harassed by the the market traders, a polite "no thank you" is all that's necessary. Now I feel I must mention the activity staff who work incredibly hard and long hours who were fantastic. Various activities throughout the day going off - darts, aqua aerobics, archery, volleyball and numerous competitions. In the evening there was a mini kids disco and also shows held in the open air auditorium which are fun. As the hotel has many multi cultural guests the shows have to be understood by everyone - which I felt the animation team did a great job. There's also bingo and karaoke held on certain nights of the week. I would recommend a visit to the Spa. We had a Turkish Bath and the massage was lovely and relaxing, my skin felt really soft afterwards. Make sure you visit at the beginning of your holiday mind or it'll take your tan off. All in all a fantastic holiday, the hotel is clean (yes could do with a bit of a revamp but heho), staff friendly, plenty of activities to participate in if you wish, free watersports, plenty of choice with regards to food and did I mention the view when the sun is setting!! Lets just say don't forget your camera! :-)More

Brilliant

Great hotel, great food and great staff! The location is right on the beach and would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone! We would be going back this summer if it wasn't for Thomson holidays and the fact we got delayed 24hrs, have tried to book direct but found it difficult More

Dave S,

Great Time

We visited in June this year and had a fantastic 10days! Rooms were clean & modern only gripe here is I would of liked a bigger balcony but I can live with that. Pool area wasnt big enough for number of guests & was quite dated. Beach was nice, we mainly went on the jetties but could get very windy. Food was good, really good choice & some fantastic puddings! Entertainment wasnt up to much.Took about 15mins to walk into town following a well lit path over looking the sea - perfect to try & walk all those puddings off! Booked a boat trip with Jix & Kesh at the hotel it was so good we booked to go again! We were lucky enough to see some dolphins on our second trip which really made the day, prices were reasonable & comparable with the other guys sell boat trips in the town. All in all a great holiday we never go to the same place twice but would consider visiting Turgutreis again in the future.More
