"Best holiday ever"
If you're worried about staying here due to the lack of reviews, then please don't be put off. Went with family and had the best and most relaxing week that I can remember. We were the only English in the hotel and the main nationality of guests were Belgian and French but we were in no way treated any differently to anyone else despite being in a complete minority. Food was great all week, we really loved the massive variety of choice and choice of drinks was great too. The spa in the downstairs of the hotel is well worth it too, we had the Turkish bath and massage package which cost about £60 each but you'd be pushed in the UK to find a 90 minute treatment (30 minute Turkish bath and 60 minute massage) for that price. Staff were fantastic all week, had some great banter with them and the entertainment staff especially who work so hard to keep you entertained with everything from Aqua Gym in the morning to the evening show that's around 12 hours later! Yes, the hotel is out of the way but we thought that added to its beauty and its approximately only a 10-15 minute taxi ride from the bus stop at the top of the hotel drive into Bodrum from the hotel at a cost of 3 lira or about £1. The only criticism I'd have about Isil Club is that in the evenings that if we didn't watch the show, there wasn't a band on every evening which we really enjoyed when there was one on. Unsure if this was due to it being low season but definitely made a difference in the atmosphere in the evenings.
"Maha Abdulwahab , Ranya Almoayed "
Isil hotel must be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. Starting from the front desk at check-in to the waiters, and their clinic . The place was so nice and clean , the food the in abundance and great. And everyone was just so accommodating and very helpful . The beach although was small but the facilities were great. The swimming pool was big and the exercise sessions were so humorous and really nice. I had an episode of my usual fainting and they would not leave me alone until I was good and running. If I ever go back to bodrum i would definitely stay there again. The whole experience was just marvellous . Thank you for making this trip worth the hassle of sabiha airport.
"The perfect relaxing place to have a break."
We made a repeat visit after a 4 year gap. My wifes idea to go back. We really cannot find fault with the whole experience. The staff are attentive at all times but not to the annoying point. Just go with relaxation in mind and the days just flow past and the stresses at home just go away..Many thanks to all the management and staff.
"Idyllic Aegean resort"
Isil Club is set in beautiful wooded grounds on the coast, about 20 mins drive north of Bodrum. Bordering the sea it overlooks a secluded bay with wonderful views across the water of the town, Torba. We stayed in a kind of condo block that had three other neighbouring rooms & a balcony - whilst this was a couple of mins walk from main hotel it did have the advantage of being very near the rather superb pool ... where we spent most of the holiday! We had gone for an all inclusive package which wasn't something we'd done before - but it did make life simpler (even if we ended up half a stone heavier when we got home!!) The spread of food at breakfast, lunch & dinner each day was superb and generally centred around Turkish, Mediterranean & Middle Eastern cuisine. As expected it was a little "samey" by the last day of our one week stay - but we did have included a complimentary meal at one of the two 'haute cuisine' restaurants on the last night. The seafood mezzo & seabass & parmesan-crusted lemon sole main course were superb I have to say - and this restuarant is set up on decking that is actually over the sea which added an ambience & picturesque quality to our last night. All in all the rooms were clean & well appointed with a great shower & positively arctic air conditioning (much needed as the day temp was 38-39 Celsius at its highest!) The pool was pristine & very well looked after, as mentioned this was the focal point for most guests - however the seaside strand, seafront decking & pier were also great for sunbathing, swimming and general chilling out. There was also a spa where we had a Thai massage & traditional hammam (not that cheap but luxurious nonetheless - around 70 Euro for the full hour and a half treatment!) The real jewel in the crown for this hotel were the staff & the activities run by the 'animation team'. From the reception staff (like the unflappable Emré who dealt with most of my questions!) through to the bar staff (such as the ever-obliging Turhan and his cocktails) through to the super-efficient waiting staff in the restaurants & the cleaning staff who daily sorted out our room ... everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Special mention has to go to Beverley, Momo & Serkan in the animation team - these guys ran gym classes, archery clubs and other activities in the morning, then usually a lunchtime game in the pool, followed by the aqua gym in the afternoon AND put on a show every night! This was of particular benefit to our 5 year old as the animation team also ran a kids club in the mornings & afternoons (special thanks to Seline who looked after our boy while we had hammam & spa!) ... and in the evening Bozy (a poor guy in a giant dog outfit in the 30 degree heat!) who would collect all the kids in a Pied Piper type circuit of the hotel and take them off for the Bozy show! After this the rest of the ents team put on a variety of shows - from dance, to drama, to comedy talent shows involving guests (if you were so inclined!) On a side note - if you're not more used to European timings around eating (evening meal starts at 7:45pm) and letting the kids stay up past 10pm then you might struggle a bit - but our chap is a night owl and loved it! And of course if the entertainments not your thing then you could just chill on the sumptuous covered terraces with the superb views and ever-present barstaff (and usually some live music which was pretty consistent good quality.) If you want to explore the locale outside of the hotel, we also found this easy to organise trips and caught a taxi to Bodrum to visit the castle and do some local sightseeing, as well as going on a great value all-day boat trip from Gümbet harbour (featuring some stunning scenery and beautiful pristine waters to swim in as well as ... all inclusive food and drink!!) All in all the hotel, the pool, the food, the sea and the entertainment really was a great package and highly recommended!
"Poor open buffet "
I stayed for 4 nights in July in this hotel ; rooms were clean and nice , but the pool was not clean enough , breakfast and dinner buffet were poor , almost nothing as seafood , almost non of the imported were free the quality of the food was maximum 3 star level so I can't say that I will recommend this hotel .
