The rooms are cleaned daily plus you get clean towels everyday. We had nothing to complain about the breakfast, lunch or diner.
"Free" drinks are even served after midnight.
The waiters are friendly especially Mehmet
Although we were there in the middle of july a time when its very chaotic in many hotels, here things ran very smoothly.

went to this hotel on a recommendation of a work colleague who said it was clean, simple, excellent food and good value for money. We arrived late in the evening and met by friendly staff who offered us some food and took our bags to our rooms.

The room was small and hostel like. The bathroom had definitely seen better days with a disgusting brown tiled floor. The room was very dated and bland. It felt dirty and there wasnt even normal sheets on the bed. Im not sure what it was, a curtain, a rug??

I thought i would give the hotel a chance as it was recommeded and we went down for breakfast. There was absolutely nothing i would want to eat. Im not even sure what half the food was meant to be. I opted for a bread roll. I opened it up to find some white substance inside. The orange juice was toxic looking and tasted very fake.

The pool area was ok but small. The hotel was set back from the beach and was in a very built up area with a lot of building work going on.It was next to a dirt track road in i would say a not very nice area.

The alcholic drinks were watered down and they didn't have any beer when we arrived for lunch and very limited spirits.

Needless to say we moved hotels and only stayed at the Kandelor for one night. The only good thing was the staff were very nice and helpful, after some negotation they agreed that we only had to pay for the night that we were there and we left to stay in the Grand Okan which was 100% better and about the same price!!

I don't understand the reviews from others on the website, all i can say is they must have been at a different hotel. There is much better out there for about the same price.

Room Tip: Don't ever choose a room at this hotel

We booked this hotel since it was the only one available without very bad reviews. Although our expectations were low, the hotel surprised us in various ways.

At first the room. It was nicely decorated and I think recently updated to new standards. The beds were comfortable and large enough. The room had a large balcony as well. The bathroom was recently updated with the rest of the room. It included a rain shower showerhead, a normal showerhead, a toilet and a large sink.

The hotel offers its visitors an all inclusive deal. Although in general, the food is not edible at most hotels when they offer all-in deals, the Kandelor hotel offers more than a good variation with superb taste! We stayed at the hotel for 9 days and every day the hotel has a different selection of food during lunch and dinner. The only thing that more or less stays the same are the variety of salads. Between lunch and diner the hotel also offers tea, coffee and cake, however the offered cake is not very tasty. On the whole the all-in was very good.

The staff at the hotel offer a good service. The kitchen personnel clean your table as soon as possible, after which you can get another plate if desired. They will even get you drinks when you ask them (included in all-in). During the 7 month holiday season many people from all over Turkey come to Alanya to work. Hence, the use of English of various staff members is minimal causing people to think they're rude, while they actually do not know how to talk back. Other staff members can speak English very well. Nonetheless, all staff members try to do their best to help you have a nice vacation.

Animation is only offered once a week, on Mondays. The Turkish night is not very special and if you are looking for a hotel that offers an enormous pool with a great variety of animation, then Kandelor is not your place to be. The advantage of the hotel is its location. It's only a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 15 minutes to the harbor. The hotel is surrounded with many stores and restaurants and therefore the animation is not really needed. Hotels in Alanya are quite small and if you are looking for a hotel that specializes in animation and has big pools I would suggest going to Konakli which is nearby. There isn't much to do in Konakli, but for people with children it might be better.

Personally, I would give this hotel at least 4 stars. The food is good, the personnel is helpful, it's clean, the rooms are recently updated and the location is perfect. The only disadvantages are that sometimes the sheets and towels are not cleaned. It didn't bother me at all, however it did bother my girlfriend for example. For people that want a good hotel and will find their own animation the Xperia Kandelor is highly recommended. For families with little children that need animation I would suggest to go somewhere else.

Room Tip: The rooms are very modern with good twin beds and a balcony. The bathroom included a beautiful rains...

In March i had the pleasure of staying at Kandelor Hotel. Alanya was being "spruced up " ready for the tourist season,so it was relaxed,calm and easy to walk around,enjoying Turkish life and friendship.There are many attractions ,both local or by tour to enjoy,so dont stay by the pool !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! too much.
Kandelor Hotel is very well presented with comfortable rooms ,excellent house keeping and quality food and menu.
Finally and most of all i would like to say, Tesekkur Ederim , to all the staff who treated me as a friend, I hope to see you again in October for my birthday.
