Just returned from a great holiday with the family we had access to 4 rooms and was shocked over the difference in the room sizes, we had a samall room which was very quiet at night whereas the larger rooms heard more noise at night when people returning in the early hours. The larger rooms also had sofas and a shower over the bath, whereas the smaller rooms only had showers. However all of us had problems with leaking showers so the bathroom floors were constantly wet. we did notify the management and was told that ours would be re-sealed however it did not work and still continued to leak, as not a major problem did not report again.

The hotel staff were great keeping us all entertained a special hello and thanks to Ferrari (mehmet) Nick and Dave you all know who you are.

If we stayed in this hotel again we would not go halfboard as the evening meal after a few days was to much of the same and being vegetarian was worst ,as the only 2 dishes they changed each night was the 2 meat dishes, We asked the chef to create a vegetarian dish and he told us the cooked french beans were for us with rice. We ate out at Denny's quite a few night where the food was absolutely fantastic.


The hotel itself was very relaxed and friendly. We made some great friends whilst we were there and ended up doing a few trips together and spending our evennings together. A big hello to Bob and Jess thanks for makng our holiday so memorable.


This holiday is not for you if you are looking for peace and quiet as there is music booming from nearly every bar and restaurant around the bay from morning tll night, but saying that you cannot hear it from your room it never stopped us from sleeping.

We have just come back from the Turihan, the hotel was spotless the food good and the location ideal. Before going we E-Mailed to ask for two adjoining rooms (two couples went)with sea-view, this we had with not only magnificent sea-views but pool-views as well. The rooms are basic but ideal, a comfortable doublebed. There is a fridge but it only works when you insert your room key into a slot in the wall, which obviously you can only do when you are in the room. The staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you,especially the bar/restaurant staff of Memhet and his boys. I would certainly go back to this hotel.

Arrived at the hotel after a horrendous flight with numerous hold ups.Were given our keys and taken straight to our rooms (2 next to each other exactly what we had asked for in our e-mail)
Couldn't really appreciate anything at the time as by then it was 6.10 am and we'd been on the road since 4pm the day before....all we wanted to do was sleep.
Woke up the next morning and had a good look round.We had a fab view from the balcony not only a sea view but a pool view as well,plus we had a grape vine right outside our room.Room was clean with plenty of power points a fridge(only worked when you were in the room though) and a hairdryer.The bed which was a double was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in.Granted we didnt have a sheet on top only under us but when I asked for another plus 2 extra pillows they wre delivered no problem.
Breakfast was your typical Turkish ,cheese,meat,olives,fruit and bread with as much Turkish tea or juice as you could drink.
We were only bed and breakfast but ate lunch at the bar a few times and one evening meal....couldn't fault either.The boys serving are great a lovely bunch of lads.
Personally I dont know what people find to moan about this hotel.....yes it's basic but so are many Turkish hotels....The location is perfect....the views across the bay outstanding and the service was excellent.
What do you expect for a 2* property at budget prices.....You get what you pay for....If you are wanting 5* luxury then this is not the hotel for you.If you want a freindly hotel with a brilliant beach front location then this one is ideal.

Arrived back yesterday.

Bed was only thing clean in room. Curtains hanging off rail, sink, soap dish and glass dirty. Shower mouldy. Spoke to night porter who said he could do nothing until morning.

Room was cleaned next day after speaking to rep, her reply was cheap and chearful. Not that cheap!

Bar staff very friendly, food good,location fab.
Staff made up for the room.

Security not good helped ourself to our keys when no one on desk.

Would not like to stay at this hotel if I had children.

Arrived home this morning stayed at the Turihan.

Excellent location for the beach and about 5 mins from shops and night life.

Hotel room basic but clean... You are meant to get a fridge you do get one it just doesn't work and everyone else we spoke to had the same problem and there was a lot of us... staff would not help to sort it... so we would go to the little shop up the road reasonable prices and open 24 hours.

The Turihan shop prices would change every time we went in so we would not shop there for the rest of the week...We was B&B which would consist of eggs cheese ham olives bread tea coffee and juice unlimited between the hours of 8 till 10.

To use the safe for a week is 10 pounds, air conditioning I think was 21 pound a week. We took ourselves a little fan which done the trick.
We also took a travel kettle and mugs to make our own coffee they saw us do this but nobody said anything.

Sun loungers on the beach in front of the hotel are free and nobody hassles you to buy drinks as I said we would walk up to the other shop for drinks and lolly ices.

Would I go again yes I would hope you all have a great holiday Carole xxx

Word of warning if you book the boat trip with Rammi which is a good trip don't get me wrong but you are given the immpression you are given free drinks you get one free drink and that is at the end of trip starts at about 10:30 til 6:30 you can buy drinks on board but the prices are inflated they charge about 5ytl for can of pop so I would put some water in rucksack especially if you take kids can get expensive.

Go to turgetries market on a Saturday you will pick up some great bargains use 10 pound notes will get a better deal..Any way back to the hotel we had a great time young girl on reception works very long hours 12hour days 7 days a week and has always got a smile the only problem was the fridge but we worked around that.

Pool is nice, deep no shallow end for the kids.

The hotel is basic to say the least and the rooms are far from clean upon arrival. We arrived late afternoon and were allocated two separate rooms away from each other, my sister and boyfriend in one room and me and my four year old in another. However, the first room i was given was literally 2 steps away from the pool, i told the staff this was not good as my little boy is in a wheelchair but could quite easily crawl into the pool as there was no security etc. I was then moved to the first floor, up a narrow twisted stair case, which I was expected to get the wheelchair up and down!

The electric for the room was only meant to work when you inserted your room key but the safety panel to mine had fallen off exposing the electrics and the electric ran without the key inserted. The room had not been cleaned, there was all sorts under the bed and the waste bin for the toilet was still full of the last peoples waste!!!!

Having accepted we would have to make the best of a bad situation we went out for food and came back later that evening. Having put the little one to bed we sat on my balcony, which I might add has a safety rail which only comes to hip level when standing which is frightening as its so easy to fall over! That night the hotel owner had a lot of his family staying at the resort who were allowed to make as much noise as possible, even go in the pool after it had closed although us British weren't allowed to do so, they were making a noise until the early hours and so when I went down to ask them to keep it down as my son was asleep the owners daughter laughed in my face! I went to reception to complain and despite speaking to the owner in a calm tone pointing out firstly that the noise was too much, his daughter had been rude and the room was unacceptable for a wheelchair, he started ranting and raving and was incapable of speaking to me civilly. One of the bar staff came and calmed the owner down who was very aggressive, I was then offered another room on the ground floor away from the pool. Having relocated to this room I had 4 electric shocks from the fridge and light switches!!

I complained to the Goldtrail rep the next morning but was basically told they were not prepared to move us to another hotel. We therefore had to endure this hotel for the week. The pool was way to deep for anyone to touch the floor so I couldnt take my little boy in.

I have to say though that the bar staff were very friendly and all very helpful, this was a contrast to the rest of the staff at the hotel.

The hotel is in a great location but the rooms all need modernising, I certainly wouldn't recommend this hotel.
