“WARNING.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2006

the worst hotel i have ever been to
never a five star maybe a three or two and a half.
food is poor with very cheap cuts of meat.
no kids entertainment to speak of.
staff are russian or german speakers in the main.
pool area is over crowded as they built an annex for extra guests
annex also has a disco which is very loud and very late.
local mosque wakes you up at 5.00am with wailing over loud speakers.
would not go back on a free holiday its that poor.

AVOID LIKE THE PLAQUE.

We are a family of 4, the children are 3 & 5. We had paid and reserved a double/twin room to be available for us from 2.00pm, we were shown to our room at 6.00am the following day.

We where shown to a standard room, clearly designed for two persons; shoehorned to accommodate 4, by converting the seating area to a bed and supplying a camp bed.

We phoned reception the next morning to inform them that the air conditioning in our room was not working. However reception hung up on us 4 times. Meaning I had to walk to reception to portrait the room problems, whereby I was informed that the air conditioning in the rooms is only available between 4pm and midnight, don’t forget that this is supposed to be a 5* hotel. The broken room aircon was fixed on the third day, the same day that the hotel admitted their error in room allocation.

Hence we packed our bags and moved to our family sized room. The hotel offered no assistance with our room move, to the extent we had to move the camp bed between rooms ourselves.

To our dismay the aircon wasn’t working there either. As the aircon is only available between 4pm and midnight, we couldn’t check in advance of moving. By the 8th day of our holiday we finally got the air-conditioned room we had paid for.

For your information, aircon is not available in the restaurant; with 599 guest rooms this is a lot of people in a non-cooled environment!

We were sold this holiday on the entertainment potential for our children, with the different clubs available, but all entertainment adult or child is in German.

On two separate occasions we witnessed excrement in the pool, we informed hotel staff, who ignored us and it was left for the guests to remove the logs.

We found the hotel management to be ignorant and selective when required, in their understanding of English.

This hotel is set up for German, Russian and Dutch. As English you are very much ‘4th Class’.

If you would like to receive a 2* holiday however pay for 5*, learn new languages and get swimmingly close to nature, this is the hotel/holiday for you. Better still why not go somewhere else were you should be pampered, enjoy yourself, and receive the impeccable standards that you have paid for.

Enjoy your holiday and I hope this review is of assistance.

  • Liked — Salads and I’m a carnivore. The local village personnel are very friendly.
  • Disliked — No aircon, no English, floating faeces, ignorant hotel management, I could go on but surely you get the picture?
  • Tips/Secrets — Go somewhere else, it's your hard earned money.

Booked holiday last minute for our family of 4. Never been to Turkey before. When we arrived at the hotel we were made to wait over 2 hours for a room that was not made up. We were told when booking we were to be placed in a family room. The actual room was in the Annex to the hotel which was, in fact, a twin room.

Staff at the hotel had to go and make up the room with an additional camp bed and our 11 year old son had to sleep on a window seat.

The staff at the hotel bearly speak English but fluent in German, Russian and Rumanian. When questioned about the room we were given an option of a further room which was right opposite an all night disco, (and exactly the same as the room we were given!). All rooms on their site show an occupancy of max 3 people!!!

Plenty of food options available in buffet style, however nothing very suitable for children who do not like continental food. Although due to it being all inclusive there is plent of opportunity for them to fill up on crepes, doughnuts and soft drinks thoughout the day.

Any entertainment is in German, also nothing to entertain young children.

In conclusion if you do not speak fluent German we would seriously recommend you do not go to this hotel.

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — Twin room used for 4 people / Ignorant staff
  • Tips/Secrets — Dont Go Unless You Speak Fluent German
