The hotel at first impressions is very basic and dated, but clean and tidy. A very large pool for the size of hotel excellent clearly marked for shallow... More

The rooms were very plain and basic, No TV or Telephone in the room. I found the rooms to be clean enough, cleaned daily... More

Been to Turkey 4 times now and noticed a massive price increase,... More
