Although the hotel is only 3 years old there are some signs of deterioration. Shower cubicle starting to rust. Tile work starting to crack in various places. There seemed to be a lack of drinking glasses /cups they were moved from the bar to the dining area and back to the bar. A lot of the cups, plates etc were chipped and cracked. There is only 1 bar which is the pool bar and there is no entertainment apart from the Turkish night and the music that was played at the bar, which was repetitive same music day in day out
. There is also a bar in the dinning room which is only open during meals. The Hotel situated close to the beach but there were smells along this road, which is very dimly lit. There was a chicken run next door to the hotel which had a cockerel crowing at 5am every morning, Telly in room with a few English channels and a fridge, free air conditioning and safe at 3 lira / 2 euros a day. The rooms were cleaned virtually every day along with a daily towel change. If you wanted a mattress for the sun bed, this was the same price per day. Also balcony was very small and walls of the rooms were thin so you could hear people in the next rooms. The staff were either very pleasant or very moody.
The area was prone to power cuts we had 5 while we were there.
ALL INCLUSIVE DRINKS
There was not a lot to choose from there was lager, red & white wine, gin, vodka and raki. The drinks were watered down except for the Raki and the Wine. There was also a coffee machine and tea urn along with ice tea, water, concentrated orange and blackcurrant from dispensers. Tip - buy a bottle of water from the supermarket and top it up at the bar when it is empty. Sometimes you were struggling with glasses as they were being used in the dining room. All inclusive option was from 10am until 12pm, you could not get a drink near 12pm unless you brought an empty glass back to the bar, the staff were very strict with this unless you were an unattached female when you could get as many glasses of booze as possible and often the bar was still open after 1am serving drinks only to females.
When we arrived at the airport and were reclaiming our luggage there was a duty free shop where you could buy spirits / cigarettes we wished we had gone in and bought some as they were quite cheap compared to the prices in the supermarket as there was very little choice for named spirits and these were expensive, so I would use this facility if I were you.
Breakfast consisted of cereals, honey, yoghurt/sour cream? Jams, bread, hard boiled eggs, hot dogs (no taste), cheeses and meat? (I think it was meat it was pinkish in colour with no taste looked like Spam) and salad stuff. We constantly had to ask for milk at breakfast as well.
Dinner was normally a salad selection consisting of various dishes including the left over eggs, meat cheese and hot dogs from breakfast mixed in various salad dressings. Hot dishes included soup and 4 hot dishes usually chips or rice or smash with chicken or turkey dishes, very seldom lamb or beef, a lot of the times these were lukewarm even if you were first into the restaurant on opening. The soup was very nice though.
You also had cakes and fruit and blancmange, the cakes were nearly always dipped in sugar syrup.
The evening meal was a repeat of dinner time and again if things were not eaten at dinner time they were recycled for the evening meal.
There was a Turkish night when we were there but the food was terrible, they were even doing stirred fried hotdogs with vegetables.
The best part of the food during the meals was the fresh bread.
There was no in between meal snacks in the all inclusive option only cakes between 4 & 5 pm.
The waiters were constantly hovering around your table to remove your plates and glasses as soon as you had finished eating.
