The room was clean but basic and every thing nearly worked, the fridge didnt and the air con only worked now and then.
Some of the staff were pleasant but most weren't and some were even very rude and most didnt speak any English but every one of them spoke German.
All of the entertainment was in German as were all of the signs and most of the music. The grounds and pool area were realy nice and tidy if not a bit cramped.
At breakfast there was no toaster at all no fried eggs but plain omelettes thrown into a steel container if you like them like that.
If you like butter with your bread we had to get it at breakfast and stash it in our fridge(that didnt work) because you dont get any for any other meals.
We didn't have a midday meal in the restaurant so I can't comment. Evening meals were o.k. The salads were great!!!
It was about 500 yards to the beach where the hotel has its own beach bar where food can be got. Here we met the worst member of staff who insisted for some reason putting the food out in open containers sometimes before 12 o clock and fighting people off until 12.30, but it didn't matter because the flies had eaten half of it by then.
The beach was OK but we felt a bit like battery hens under the shade nets all together, we prefered the beach to the east of Side next to the ruins which was a short bus ride away for 2 euros each.
Car hire is expensive in Turkey so we hired a taxi for the day for 50 euros, most taxi drivers do set trips to different places but try and find one that speaks some English because it was really interesting seeing the real Turkey.
Side was a really nice place and close by and we would go back but not to the Corolla .

The food was dreadfull all served in stews, one dish contained fruit with meat. The dishes of the day are generally liver, fried spam and the odd day of chicken of kebab. I stayed for 2 weeks and ate mellon, and tomato soup for the entire holiday. On the last day the cut our wrist bands off and told us we were not entitled to any food or drink, not that there was much drink left they were down to fanta and mineral water (I liked neither) the staff were rude and cockey, and even me as an 18yr old was not happy with the standard of the holiday.

The pool was lovely and enough sunbeds for everyone but the rooms were basic, appliances did not work and due to the lack of English speaking staff (as the hotel was 99% German) the service was poor when we asked for repairs etc.
The food was extremely repetative and often cold, and was definately used over from the previous meal. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were all the same. We stayed all inclusive but it is definately not all inclusive, you have to pay for any imported drinks and their own drinks are limited.
The all inclusive'ness' ends at 12pm and there is a severe lack of waiters/bar staff at around 11.45pm. You also have to pay to hire the pool table and any tennis raquets/balls that you use in the hotel.
The location was further away from the beach than anticipated and the beach itself was quite dirty and crowded with sun beds. The entertainment staff were very basic and not very funny, and again all spoke in German. Some of the staff were very friendly and did try to speak in English, but others were quite rude.
All in all we would not go back to this hotel again.

The food was greasy, repetitive and sometimes not very warm.
The entertainment highlight was a leather coat fashion show, with the commentary in german.
The hotel was a 15 min walk from the beach which was extermely congested. The pool was overcrowded with 2 surfboards, lilos and volley ball games.
The greates part of the holiday was when we left the hotel.
