A great nine days of relaxation at this hotel around mid-April. My scores could have been higher, had I not been let down by the Guest Relations. Promises, promises, but nothing delivered. It is a pity that because of them I left the hotel feeling very disappointed. The rest of the staff did an excellent job, clearly doing their best, always helpful and smiling.
Some renovation work was still going on, the Italian and Turkish à la carte restaurants were not open, and there were no evening shows at the amphitheatre but that did not bother me at all.
The room was nice, clean and large, although a bit worn out, and the tv screen was far too small for the size of the room. The staff (apart from the Guest Relations) were very helpful, polite, discrete, and nice. The food at the buffet restaurant was excellent and there was a lot to choose from. I especially liked the fish and the Turkish desserts. The local whiskey was awful, undrinkable, but luckily I like the taste of raki :)
Of the spa facilities, I only used the saunas, which were free, and they were all very nice.
Do not waste your money in the expensive Internet connection (9 euros per day, 2 euros per hour). It did not work in my room. There's free wi-fi in the lobby.
The balcony of the superior deluxe room - 5*, really? Cheap plastic furniture (dirty), facing a concrete wall (with a side view to the pools and beach, but still).
