We went (4 adults) mid September. The rooms are very basic but adequate...we only showered and slept there. You have to be pro-active with the cleaning routine, don't expect towels/sheets/bins done unless you put a ticket on the door..this was NOT explained by staff. Its not the cleanest hotel (apart from the public area) and the whole place is shabby and needs updating...that said..its a 2 star hotel so we knew it wouldn't be the Ritz! The staff didn't make any fuss of us, but then we were hardly there. 'Breakfast' is to be avoided unless you are already a street dweller and survive at soup kitchens. We used it for a cup of tea 1st thing on a moning and the same crushed egg and bits of tomato were round the tables for 2 weeks. The staff could do with squirt of Lynx too. The hotel location is good..near everything and we wern't bothered by noise on the street side..maybe because it was later in the season? There are loads of great places to eat..the fillet steaks are to die for (approx 20-25 lira - £10 for a genereous portion including salad and chips/potato's)..we never had a bad meal ..I would recommend Family Door for food ,atmosphere and lovely service. The bars at the Dolphin Square end are more geared to the younger person..lots of 'street dance' groups in every bar , which is a bit much night after night. We liked the bars and resraurants at the other end better..music that we knew and not so loud! The main beach at Altinkum is the filthiest I have ever sat on...each time we hired a sunbed (12 lira for 2 with a brolly) we had to spend 10 minutes flicking a million fag ends,bottle tops and plastic bags out of the way...gruesome. Why on earth they don't clean the beach is a mystery.. surely they can see how awful it is? We had a massive storm one day and we watched the main town sewer overflow into the sea where we sat..and there were still parents letting kids play in it...eeek! Its nice to walk to the new marina..take water as its isolated. I can't praise highy enough the staff at the Big Nose Bar near the Nazar...tooooo funny, those lads made our holiday..they work goodness knows how many hours for peanuts and make sure all their customers are treated like genuine mates..well done! All in all..I would not return to Altinkum and would only recommend the Nazar if you are skint or after a very basic last minute deal! This sounds mean as we knew when we booked it was 2* but I think some of the reviews were a bit misleading . Altinkum is basically a beach holiday resort with ok nightlfe for no longer than a fortnight.
