We had a top floor room, it’s a 10 min walk to Hisaronu, night life is great, Monday market is good,
So this is a very good hotel, if you read other reviews saying it’s not a good hotel, take no notice of it, it’s a fantastic hotel, we are thinking of going back in September this year as it was a fantastic holiday.
About a 20 minute downhill walk to the town and this may not suit everybody. Rooms are compact but there is no need to spend much time there. Hotel staff could do with checking rooms between occupants - we had a faulty fridge, lights and electric sockets.
Pool very nice and clean. It got a bit noisy in the night with the return of revellers from the bar so take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. Staff very friendly and polite.
The pool has to be the second best feature, as it is large, clean and very family friendly. There are 'just' enough sunbeds if you are down reasonably early to sunbathe, although the Animation Team will move guests towels if they do not come to use the facilities by 11am. A great practice!
Food is good, varied (although chicken if often on the menu) and the daily soups are very scrummy!! There is a large selection of continental breakfast choices- bread, salads, meats, cheeses along with eggs, frankfurters, toast and cereals. Hot meals are limited to several choices per day for lunch and dinner but the salad bar is extensive, there is always soup and the dessert range is wide.
Hotel staff are very helpful, courteous and polite. They work hard, long hours and are happy to accommodate you in any way they can. The hotel owners were there during our stay and they welcome constructive comments from guests in order to improve your stay (and have made changes due to these).
The maid service was efficient for our needs, towels and bedding being changed on a regular basis and the room always seemed clean. There is soap provided for in the shower (there is no bath) and the sink. Plenty of toilet paper always available (though it is put in the bin and not the toilet).
The Animation Team is a mature couple from Wales who are delightful! They work long hours and are always open to new suggestions. They try to vary the nightly entertainment- there are 'some' games and acts for children but it is mostly geared towards the adults and does start a bit late, usually 10.30pm. They do get you involved in the pool, darts, volley ball etc during the day!!
Hisaronou is within walking distance down the hill. We often came back after midnight and even walking this late felt quite safe on our own. A taxi would cost £3 or 6 Turkish lira without a tip. There are numerous clubs, pubs, restaurants, Turkish lads dancing on the bars (in most bars), fire shows, a fun fair, live entertainment nightly, so many types of shops selling everything you could want!
We loved our holiday, and would in a few years possibly consider going back. It is '3 star', so you get what you pay for... a relaxing holiday, with brilliant weather, a good hotel with great staff, fab food, ok entertainment in a sensational location which goes towards excellent value for money!
always crawl out of the woodwork on holiday).A kids club or creche is something they could think about,its always nice for parents to get a wee break on holiday.The rooms were clean the beds comfortable all good sized for a 2 week all inclusive holiday.O verall we would definately visit this hotel again and know we would have a great holiday

Now for the case of the missing shoes! One couple told me that one of the husband's shoes went missing, they searched all over and could not find it. A few days later, they find the missing shoe along with it's mate sitting neatly on a chair in their room. I was aghast! They had space for a chair in their room? I raced back to our room and put all of my shoes in the suitcase and locked it. The next day, a teenager said that she had two right shoes go missing and had emptied the room looking for them. A day later one of the shoes turned up but I do not know if the second shoe ever did. Mmmm, could it be a foot fetishist poltegeist having a bit of fun? Maybe a one legged thief was hopping about? Or simply, they were just untidy people who could'nt keep track of their footwear unlike moi who had mine safely locked up in a suitcase.
Now for the good points. The swimming pool was large and clean. The overall hotel 'village' was pretty with lots of flowers. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. Only one staff member let the side down. He worked in the pool bar mainly and his attitude was obnoxious. He was a right twit (spelt that wrong, never mind).
The entertainment was dire, it mainly consisted of Bingo and quizzes though one night the weekly entertainment budget was blown on some acrobats. They were very entertaining as entertainment should be!
I did enjoy myself despite all, and met some lovely people. Perhaps the camaderie felt by one and all was the result of mass whingeing.
