Stayed in the Big Blue Suite Hotel 24th Sept 2012 - 7th October 2012. Well reading some of the reviews, I think some people just love to moan! I have travelled to lots of places & admitedly its not up with my Mexican all inclusive, but this is one of my better non eu hotels. It is a long transfer but you should know this when booking, both ways took about 3 hours, we did stop at services both times though. Alanya is a beautiful place with a lovely harbour & castle & although the hotel was in the residential area the centre was in easy reach by a 60p bus ride which took about 10 minutes. Buses must run late as we came home on one about 1am, taxis only about £5 if not. Oba had many shops, restaurants, & pubs, this was a ten minute walk from the hotel. The hotel was spotless, food cooked fresh, with plenty to choose from, we especially enjoyed the fresh tuna & grilled meatballs. Pancakes cooked in the afternoon were to die for, my other half a fussy eater but ate well at this hotel. Waiters were very friendly our favourite been Nuri & Saban, on an evening was waiter service for drinks, these guys brought you another before you had finished the previous one! We enjoyed the tuborg on draft or the rose wine. Even the hotel Manager spoke to guests, we had a soft spot for the caretaker guy who worked such long hours & never stopped, we tipped him at the end of the holiday, he was so appreciative of it. Only downside of the hotel was lack of entertainment & to be honest this didn't bother us as we made some lovely friends. If you went on the trips in Alanya they were very reasonable, I would recommend the jeep safari it was so much fun. The entertainment guy was very slimy with the young girls & really needs removing from the hotel! We did hear the mosque but soon got used to it, after all we were in Turkey! This was our 1st time in Turkey & we were very impressed, would definately go back, & would stay in this hotel! For what we paid I believe we got a bargain.
