I have just returned from the Raga Apartments in Side with my family. These Apartments are some of the most basic accommodation I have ever stayed in. To call them basic would be an understatement.

Upon arrival, our first impression was of neglect; the gardens and publec areas were over grown. Flower beds contained more weeds than flowers. The pool area was shabby lined with dirty sun loungers. The pool was very cloudy and looked dirty.

We were taken to our room in F Block. The first thing we noticed was that windows were missing from the stairway and many of the frames were rotten.

Our room was even worse. The living room contained a basic 3 piece suite covered in a hidious fake leopard skin fabric. The kitchen cabinets did not match, some doors did not shut, one lamp shade was missing and another was damaged. A selection of assorted glasses were laid out on the shelf. The kettle did not work and the fridge was dirty and its seal was broken.

The master bedroom contained a small double wardrobe (doors would not shut), two beds, one had a missing support and rocked when slept on and the fabric was all ripped so that you could see the wooden base. Light fittings were falling off the wall and the door would not shut as the door frame was hanging off with sharp rusty nails sticking out.

The second bedroom was no better, smaller and only had a single wardrobe.

In both rooms, the only hangers were those left behind by previous guests.

The bathroom was clean and functional, but its door had been badly repaired with filler and the tiles around the frame were ragged having been badly cut. The shower area was dirty and the shower curtain/cubicle came undone if you backed into it.

Plaster was coming off the walls and some fell on my head when I shut our bedroom door.

None of the doors to balconies or front door fitted properly with large gaps at the tops and bottoms.

Bar staff could not speak very much English but on the whole tried to be friendly. Avoid the creepy waiter who everybody thought was a perve!

If you do not believe me then email me and I will send you the photographs for you to make up yopur own mind.

Avoid this place if you can.

What can I say.....we totally loved the Raga Apartments. We stayed in a 2 bed apt and it was huge and was cleaned every day by a really friendly maid. The bar staff/waiters were fantastic and made us feel really welcome.

They were wonderful with the children staying there and were really keen to help with everything. The food on site was probably the best value of all the restaurants we visited in Side and we had no problems at all with 'holiday tummy'.

The pool was very clean and there were plently of sun beds. I would thoroughly recommend these apartments and would love to return one day.

Basic kitchen tools but very cheap to eat out so no problem there really. Maids came 6 days week and they are lovely.

Food at hotel restaurant excellent and the staff keep the kids entertained for ages although can get little upset if the older lads took jokes too far! ha.

Nice and quiet location but near enough to the action if you want to go clubbing! Taxi's available everywhere but settle price before you get in!

Hotel staff are excellent we wanted to keep room on last day check out time is 12 noon we were leaving at 11.10pm so were able to keep room for only 56 lira till 9.30pm.

There was BBQ on Thursday night but every fortnight there was belly dancer and the waiters joined in dancing with kids and did little Turkish dance.

I would visit this hotel again as it was great! The rooms are very big and slept 5 in 2 bedroomed apt easily!
