This is the perfect base for visiting the extraordinary sites at Pamukkale and enjoy the stay at the same time in this nice rural setting only 10 min. drive from the Pamukkale white rocks. Great pools and spas indoor and outdoor, small but comfortable and functional rooms, spacious and beautiful lobby with OK internet, nice restaurant. A pity we did... More

Very tourist class and the compound is quite big...I was glad our room was located in the block next to the Reception where the breakfast and dinner restaurant is. The latter is chaotic during meal times with lots of people from different tour groups eating at the same place, probably there are not many dining options outside? Also a photographer... More

A large spa complex set in an awesome natural geothermal area. The varied spa treatments and facilities are very attractive. However, I found the room no more than adequate student level and not entirely clean. Given coach tour budgets, the evening meal was quite good, but breakfast disappointing.

The hotel seems to cater primarily for one night stays as the rooms were worn and needed refurbishment and the coming and going of guests a constant. The thermal pool is good as is the massive swimming pool in which I swam to and fro for ever relieving the days exertions. Dinner was on the large terrace by the pool... More

We spent one night here on our RSD tour to visit Pamukkale. We had a hectic schedule so we didn't have time for the thermal spa. It was rather uninspiring with typical corporate style bedrooms, but ours did have a bath. Not a place you would choose for its looks or atmosphere. The restaurant was set out with large round...

We stayed at this hotel on the 2st October 2015. The hotel was booked by our RSD tour company so we had no choice in choosing where to stay. This hotel was disappointing and certainly not a 4-5* based on the fact it looked really nice at night on the outside, but when we were given our keys for our... More

This is a huge resort that only exists because of nearby Pamukkale. We had a terrific room with a small balcony that looked out over the pool. Others had very strange layouts. Some with spiral staircases up to sleeping area and had to come downstairs to use the bathroom. We were content with our room. They have a large buffet... More

We stayed here as part of the Globus tour. On the night we checked in we counted 10 tour buses on the parking lot - say about 400 people on tours! Guess what happens at meal time. Its like a refugee camp with hundreds of people lining up and grabbing their food before it is gone - and the food... More

We stayed just one night at the Lycos River Hotel in September and found the rooms clean and roomy. After a long, hot bus trip, a dip in the lovely pool was the first thing on our agenda. The thermal springs were so relaxing and worked a treat on my sunburn - no pain or peeling! A session with Dr... More
