My husband and I got a deal to stay here with our infant son for a week.
We are avid travelers, used to no-frills type accomodations, and usually try to be adventurous- we only did an all-inclusive because of the baby (to make it easier).
The room was small but very clean. A little bit loud in the hall, but nothing crazy. The pool is nothing special, but you eat all the meals next to it, which is very pleasant.
The food was OK- Turkish breakfast is nothing special but they have fresh bread/jam/cereal, olives, yogurt and hard boiled eggs, made crepes or other special things for breakfast 3 or 4 times during the week as well.
Lunch and dinner is mostly lots of cucumber/tomato salad, pasta or potato salads, etc (like 20 types of salads), a few mediocre hot dishes and some good things thrown in- good eggplant dishes, fried vegetable fritters, roasted peppers, etc. You get sick of it on day 3.
However, the beach is right across the street and lovely,so it is great to be able to walk back to the hotel and eat lunch and have a beer, then go back out to the beach. The staff are all very, very nice and helpful.
The hotel is not near Alanya downtown where there are many restaurants, clubs, etc. You can take the bus there (15 minutes), cab (5 minutes) or walk back at night (40 minutes- very nice). We went out for dinner the last 4 nights- there are some great options near the hotel, not just downtown.
The Turkish hotel about 4 blocks towards downtown has a great traditional outdoor tearoom and great traditional food (they don't speak english but have an english menu), and there's Bolu Sofrasi, which is great grilled meats and stuff, about 10 minutes walk away.
There's a good, big grocery store 5 minutes walk away from the hotel that has great baklava plus everything else you need- drinks, suntanning stuff, everything.
Also, check out the castle. Amazing views. the taxi from the hotel to the top is 20 YTL.
