The room is pretty basic with one wardrobe with a few hangers but no shelves. The bathroom is small and the shower tiny. Both of these could do with a good clean. The beds were hard and got worse as the holiday went on. Ok for two blokes but a woman would require more space for their clothes and better cleanliness in the bathroom. Our bed linen and towels were changed twice in the week.
Breakfast is the normal Turkish food. The drinks are a dearer than in most of the bars. We only ate snacks there but they were ok. The pool is good and there were no problems with sun loungers. The pool is deep 180 cm’s which is approx 72ins or 6ft ( not 9ft as one person has said). There is a small children’s pool. The staff are helpful without being too pushy. Soft drinks are very dear.
The hotel is only 50m from the Dolomus route (4 armutulan) and there is a number of good bars not far away.
When we arrived the hotel is a 4 star, it was fabulous, very very clean. The room was air conditioned, this is a must as the temperature was in the 90s. The staff were excellent, they couldn't have done more for you.
The only thing I could criticise is the pool, don't get me wrong it's fantastic but the main pool is 9ft deep throughout. There is a separate kids pool.
Can't fault it would recommend it to anyone roll on next year.

Breakfast/ lunch food in the hotel was ok - pretty average I'd say. Not till later in the week did we have dinner there and continued to eat there till we left after that as the food was spectacular (and I'm a real foodie!).
Best of all though was the staff. I have never found such a brilliant bunch of people to spend a holiday with. The service was pleasant, efficient and courteous when required, but the staff also knew how to have a great time too and made sure everyone else did! They seemed to have the knack of entertaining the children while entertaining the adults, while not being too over the top and annoying everyone! Some of the most hard working, kind and lovely people I have ever met - spend some time talking to them and they will give you a fantastic insight into Turkish culture. Our thanks to Ice Man, Mexicano, Bobby and the rest of the team!
My first time in Turkey - certainly won't be the last - and I can highly recommend this hotel.

The food was terrible, same thing every night apart from the meat!
Breakfast was between 8-10 and was bread salad and cereal.
Lunch was 12.30 - 2, this was ok, you could order from the menu pizza's, omlettes, burgers etc.
And then evening meal was at 8.
I have never seen a hotel where there is nothing to eat from 2-8 when its all inclusive!
we ate there for the first 3 nights and thats it!
The staff are friendly but cant understand a word of english! Which is not very helpfull...
The room is awful and very very small... the shower was so small there was no room to wash your hair!
it also had no doors which meant the room got soaking wet and had its own river!
When we booked we told we would have a TV, there was no tv but we did have a fridge.. we took this up with the manager one night and when we came home from a meal on the beach we walked in to the room and to our surprise there was a ........ ANOTHER FRIDGE!!! we went to reception and the removed the fridge and gave us a tv that didnt even work so we just gave up!
The only thing good was the pool although it was 1.8 meters deep and no one could touch the floor. And it had a slide going into the pool... (which if you read the letter from thomas cook in reception... is very unsafe and they do not reccommend its use)!!!
I would not reccommend this hotel to any one!
