Just returned from a week's stay at this complex and have mixed feelings about it. On the plus side: the grounds in the main site are beautiful and well cared for; the staff are extremely friendly and helpful; bar prices are very reasonable; large swimming pool with plenty of loungers (bring your own pool towels); free shuttle bus to town thrice daily; free shuttle bus to beach club once a day; variety of accommodation. We were located in the smaller Residence on the other side of the street with some accommodation similar to the main site. We were allocated 2 'bungalows' which consisted of a reasonable sized sitting area and full bathroom on the ground floor and a galleried double bedroom on the upper level which was reached by a very steep, open-tread marble staircase. The bungalows were set around a pool again with adequate loungers. The rooms were simply but comfortably furnished.
On the downside: choice of food was limited and repetetive and we dined out a couple of evenings; Turkish mezze was available self-service at breakfast and dinner but as it was uncovered it attracted flies; lots of other people have mentioned the cats which wander around the dining areas! The accommodation in the Residence is situated on the first floor above an unused restaurant and coffee shop. There is an attractive open air bar alongside the pool which we discovered was leased out and seemed to be a mecca for many non-residents; this together with the variety of unknown and often boisterous children who appeared to use the pool helped shatter the relaxed atmosphere which residents were expecting.
Re value for money: we had booked the package through a travel agent 3 weeks before departure and were lead to believe that we were getting ' good deal'. However, we discovered in conversation with other guests that most of them had paid a fraction of our cost by booking via the net.
Would I go back? Only if I could be guaranteed that I would be accommodated in the main hotel building or in a ground floor studio and only on a bed and breakfast basis.
