Best advice for breakfast...stay in bed, its not worth getting up for. If you do have some hot food here be at the front of the queue for the chips, or you will, as I found out, get them cold and hard. The spirits are OK if you like paint stripper, red wine is the stuff that tastes like vinegar, the cola they use is diabolical. They supply transport down to St Nicolas beach blue lagoon, well worth going as its a beautiful place.

We went as a couple as a second choice because we couldn't get in to the Hotel Tropicana (a1 hotel).
Akdeniz beach what a joke. And I was not laughing.
3 star, oh my God it should of been a 1 star self catering rather than AI.
Food was diabolical
The staff which their was a receptionist, barman, and chef.
Barman was young, and had the music on loud, boom boom boom, no one wanted it on loud, our age groups were adults 20-70 and wanted to relax, but everytime you asked for it to be turned down, he did it, smirked, and within five minutes up it went again.
They ran out of vodka and whiskey, and it was a tough luck, can't get any for a couple of days you will have to have something else......so people that we met 8 of us chipped in and bought our own!
The barman never turned up on time, he was too busy in bed with his girlfriend!
The chef, needed a good bath and his clothes boiling.
The pockets on his trousers were black with filth, and he stood there by the kitchen smoking and picking his nose.
The food was yuk yuk yuk
I am not a fussy eater but it was rank. If you liked rice, rice rice and rice, and sloppy pasta and thin something sauce that I think was watered down tomato ketchup then happy days.
Breakfast was non existent.....olives, hard boiled eggs cold, if any left, curled up sweaty cheese with flies on, and big chunks of tomatoes, and bread.
Lunch was the same every day!!! Rice, rice, rice, pasta, sauce, pasta, vegetable stew, chicken if lucky, and rice and rice.
Dinner. ???? I think we gave it a shot 3 nights!!! If for any reason you didn't like fish, well too bad!
The other 6 we met, whom also weren't fussy even ate out, (not they were were going to be tied to AI, we always go out twice for dinner) but this was because we had to.
We all ate out 4 nights out of 6, as even though it was a 7 night holiday, really after all said and done it is really in real time 6 nights.
We ate 3 times for breakfast, and the other 2 had a late brunch out.
The food at the local market at the side of the street was ten times better than this hotel.
There was no entertainment, except for the boom, boom, boom music during the day.
Oh and a TV appeared when the Turkish football came on and was then hidden away again. Non of the staff served or helped during the football match on TV and it was hard pushed to get a drink.
Tea time, cake. Had shout out any cake today. Then they made a big fuss to bring it out the chiller.
The rooms clean. But I ended up with the point of the bed-spring sticking through the mattress and taking a chunk out of my leg. The pain was searing, I thought at first I had been stung.
Air con worked but leaked like a sieve.
The pool was in fact clean!
They have since not appeared in many brochures and I may be wrong but not doing all inclusive tariff anymore, not they were every doing an AI in the first place.
So really all 8 of us, that had never met, from all over Britain thought they hotel, food, staff was diabolical cant all be wrong.
What a sham.
If it wasnt for them 6, and the good time we had out and about, I think I would of checked out and rented somewhere else for the week.

As my daughter had a 4 month old baby with her we chose this hotel for its location.
Their hotel room would never be far away, if they needed to pop back. Although it was close to the front, we didn't find it noisy at all. The beds were very comfy and the rooms spotlessly clean. We only had breakfast at the hotel but heard from other guests that the meals were very good. Staff were extremely friendly and loved our baby!
No entertainment as such, but the bar staff were full of fun.
