Spend a week there as a part of a tour package. The owner is a great guy. Does whatever is possible to entertain his guests. Organized cheap local trips for us. The location is nice because it is next to a bus stop, very close to a couple of small food shops and just a short (and very-very beautiful) 15 minutes stroll from the city. We did not go to a publish beach, instead we went the closes way to the sea and stayed on the tip of the small rocky peninsula. It's covered from the city and you can see nothing but the sea. Ideal isolated place for some nude suntanning.
We liked all the staff at the hotel. We gave no tips (only when leaving), but were always greeted with respect and the broadest smiles, because we learned a couple of simple words in Turkish like hello, thank you, etc.
The food was good. Didn't like the breakfast much, but the dinner was always yummy
Now the negative things. The rooms are not perfectly clean. The ones facing the pool also face the windows of the house nearby and disco in the evening makes it impossible to sleep. The furniture is old and so is everything else. Hammam (Turkish bath) does not work. The hotel is at least 10 minutes walk from the public beach and it is crowded with people.
Overall, it's a good place to stay if you are planning to spend all your days somewhere else and don't want to pay too much for just the sleeping place. And if you are looking for a luxurious resort - just don't come here
