We stayed at the holiday point hotel and spa also known as Alegria hotel and spa towards the end of November.
The first thing to strike you is the magnificent lobby with dome roof and amazing chandelier. We arrived around 8pm after walking out our last hotel due to the poor standard. The reception had not received our reservation from the online booking agent as only half an hour had elapsed. I showed my confirmation and was promptly given our all inclusive bands and advised to head to the restaurant.
The food was plentiful. It is impossible not to find something you would like. Excellent selection and beautifully presented even at the end of service there was loads of choice and still being freshly replenished. We were immediately impressed.
After dinner we went back to reception whereby they had received out booking and allocated our room (340) strangely on the 1st floor.
The room was spotlessly clean. Not massive but big enough. I've stayed in better rooms but this was more than adequate. Clean and fresh with a good view over the pool and towards the beach.
Bearing in mind we paid around 40 pounds a night all inclusive I thought this was great value. On the subject of all inclusive, it is indeed inclusive until 11pm whereby a small charge is then made for drinks.
The drinks were local produce but of very good quality and not watered down like some all inclusive places. The beer served is efes beer, the local beer and is on a par with top brands. This of course is a matter of opinion.
The WiFi is a bit temperamental but when reported to reception it seemed to be working again within an hour. (25 euro per week charge or free in the lobby).
There are the usual suspects trying to tout for business, resident photographer and masseuse to name 2 but they are not too pushy. If not interested politely so no thanks.
As previously mentioned this hotel is 95 per cent German and as such seems to cater more for Germans but this wasn't a problem for us. Also, as it was November the place was full of older German guests which after a few beers bece interesting to people watch.. How rude of us but they are an amusing bunch!
Finally the dolmus stops right outside the hotel. The hotel side of the road for side and towards the harbour and opposite side of the road for manavgat.
In summary, the hotel was excellent value for money. Very clean and the food superb. If you're anti German do not stay here however.
