Firstly i have to say i normally travel to Marmaris 3 maybe 4 times a year and have done for the past trillion years...This year i decide to break that habit and i went to ALanya..Am i not glad i did, what a gorgeous place. So much better for me than Marmaris.. Very clean , lovely people and the scenery is to die for... My review is mainly about my Accommodation. WOW!! As all the other reports have said , absolutley faultless... Great spacious, clean rooms, with shower that is clean and works like a massage, you can turn the pressure to very hard or very soft for delicate skin but if your like me and like good hard pressure on back and feet this is brilliant... NO mould round shower or anywhere in bathroom i could have taken my dinner off any part of this apartment. Maid was consistant and very pleasant speaking to me regualrly and in English to so lovely... Kitchen spotless with coffee maker! altho we neva cooked in the apart it had the usual 2 ring cooker and it was spotless as were all utensils in kitchen... Beds changed every 3rd day and the maid come in sweep floor , clean out shower and toilet, empty bin, makes bed , washes any dishes you have, mops floors, takes hair from plugsin bathrooms,wips handles of doors, wipes mirrors and glass slide door..She truly blitz the room when she is in, best service i have ever had in all my years going to Turkey... Food in the bar rest was very good, service with a smile always, no sleazy turk hanging over you saying sexual inuendos, the boys were all clean and spoke decent enough english to understand. I am very fussy person about food and cleanliness and i really was so pleasantly shocked to see how well run this Hotel/apart was being run. Karen is ENglish and her hubby Turkish and together with their son Adem have perfected this hotel and i really applaud them... I enjoyed my first stay in Alanya, at this hotel and i would defiantely go back, the atmosphere in theplace is peceful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble for them.. There is also a small supermarket in the hotel where you can buy ice lolllies, water, chocolate, sweeties, and such like all at reasonable prices.
Oh and before i forget my AC was included in my room price which i booked through Booking.com and also i was supplied with toilet rolls which i have neva been before in an apartment.. All nice little touches.. The Hotel its self is just off the main road and in great location close enough to resteraunts and bars and 5 mins from beach... I was with my sister and a few of the nearby bars/rest we went into spoke very highly of Karen's hotel and of Karen which to me was quite endearing to know she had this reputation in the town she adopted as her home... I hopefully will get to go back here... Forgot to mention this Hotel also has Lift for anyone who needs it, and the reception is on ground level... I definately chose the right place to stay and i would go back in a flash :-)
