Just back from two weeks at the Gold Island. From start to finish all was superb.
We had a great room on the 5th Floor facing the beach and the mountains, lovely scenery and big balcony to sit take in the view, drink a coffee, room had tea & coffee facilities. At night the entertainment from nearby hotels was pleasant to listen to and relax after a day in the sun.
Rooms are fairly big with all you need including small fridge, daily replenished with water. Bathrooms good, lovely large shower, good 'added' goodies, towels changed every two/three days and bed linen too.
Food was good and varied, not sure why others are unhappy about the choice, only slight issues some nights the dishes of hot food were 'luke warm'. Great service from one waiter in particular, older guy with glasses, a tip here and there kept him attentive with drinks and coffee supplied.
Drinks were good and strong, a double or triple plus a little tonic!! All in all friendly service and all staff happy to help.
A la Carte was good and different from main restaurant, we did believe that it was something different!!
Outside space plentiful and never a problem getting a sunbed. Pool Restaurant great at lunch time with pizza, burgers, kebabs, spaghetti and most days Turkish filled pancakes.
Entertainment team tried hard but not as good as other hotels, a good Dance Night and a Turkish Evening had superb dancing.
Only went one trip 'Discover Alanya', £37, thought good value, started with an hour boat trip round the cliffs under castle seeing caves, a trip to castle the lunch and a trip down the Dim Caves finishing with 90 mins at shops in Alanya.
Hotel itself is unique and offers a great view of the coast and hills and at night it's own light show.
Recommend highly for a break in the sun with good food, service and surroundings.
