The other things about the hotel we hated was the food - bland and repetitive, the hamman - always cold, the staff - unfriendly and incommunicative and the hygiene - dead cockroaches in the hallways, cold rooms, no bath plugs...the list goes on.
Unless you want a holiday from hell don't go there.
Fairly clean grounds/pool area. Occasional slow food replacement in the restaurant, perhaps if the chefs/management stopped flirting with the young ladys things may improve. Ice cream was only available on a chargeable basis. No automatic replacement of shower gel or shampoo. Issues with blown bulbs all over the hotel.
No conversation with any member of staff all week,either too busy or frightened of the regime installed there. Beach bar had good service.Snack bar service was slow at times. Poor quality sand on beach, but then I have been spoilt with the Norfolk coast.

The food was horrible, we lived on bread and rice for two weeks, although there was plenty of fresh fruit. It was served in a buffet style.
The staff on reception spoke little English as this hotel has mainly German and Russian guests, and I felt the food was mainly geared to their tastes. There wasn't many British families(5) whilst we were there and we felt quite out numbered!!!
There was daytime activities which we joined in but the Russians and Germans were quite competitive when it came to the poolside games and didn't like losing to us Brits!!! Don't expect to have a quiet relaxing laze by the pool as the music is very loud and continues throughout the day, and all in Turkish or German, which was repeated about 10 times throughout the day. But rather than getting fed up with it we played guess the next tune, which was very funny when you haven't a clue what their singing about!!!
The room wasn't brilliant(two bedroom room) with dirty carpets and poor air con which in the July heat became unbearable but we didn't spend a great deal of time in it, so we didn't worry too much about that.
The entertainment was ok but again more for Russians and German guests. Everything had to be spoken in Turkish first, then Russian, then German and then English. But the kids enjoyed the mini disco and the entertainment team worked long hours (6am till 1am) only having 1 day off a week, so they really do work hard.
The poolside was very dangerous with slippery tiles and whilst we were there we saw some nasty accidents,
the pool itself was quite small with 2 slides but getting a sunbed was difficult. We had to set the alarm for 6am to get one!!!
The beach is a 5 minute walk across a busy road but you could get a sunbed and there was a hotel bar were the all inclusive covered. There are watersports there which you have to pay for jet ski etc.
I would not go back again and was very disappointed with this hotel. It was the first time I couldn't wait to get home, we did try and make the best of it as we had saved all year round and visit Turkey every year. But it does not deserve the 4 stars and we have stayed in other 4 stars in Turkey and the Greenwood is no where near up to other 4 star standards. I'm not the sort of person to nit pick but found it hard to find anything positive to say about this hotel other than the Turkish bath which is very good value for money.
