We stayed for 2 weeks from 4th. March 2014.
Good flights, on time, to and from Turkey, with Thomas Cook.
Our room 1743 did not have a sunny view and faced the opposite side of the block looking at other rooms,so not too good. It transpired that these rooms were allocated to the 'Brits' who were in a great minority to the Germans who all appeared to have sun and sea views in their room choices.
That said our room had been recently refurbished to an excellent standard and had no problems.
Our room cleaner was called Gunsun and she was just great.
The weather started with half a days rain on our first full day and we saw no rain after that, however we did not get too much sun at the beginning and had many cloudy days with the sun making sporadic appearances. On our day to return home the sun was shining at 23degreesC and the forecast was excellent.
The entertainment staff were very good with Otoo as the leading light! DJ Memhet, entertainment Chief Murat were also superb and all the team were very professional.
The waiters and staff in the restaurants were all hardworking yet still friendly, ensuring all guests had good service all the time.
Food quality and drinks were fine just as we remembered from our initial visit 4years ago.
The majority of guests were German and in the senior age bracket,like ourselves, and some we're staying for long periods,2 or 3 months.
We spent time with two German couples and enjoyed their company and sense of humour, which was just like ours.I should point out that they spoke good English and we did not speak German-shame on us!
On the downside the hotel charged for Wi Fi, the room safe and for changing pool towels and could bring their hotel amenities to neighbouring hotels standards by removing those charges.
One final thing was to sing the praises of the Thos. Cook tour rep, Danielle, who was extremely helpful with our additional luggage allowance request at the end of the holiday and also the welcome meeting at the beginning.
We enjoyed our second stay at the Melas and would return sooner if our suggestions were acted upon, to raise the the Melas to a standard that would ensure all boxes are ticked for satisfaction.
