“Not very memorable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012 via mobile

Hotel had good swimming pool and spacious lobby and restaurant. Meals were a bit average. Only stayed there one night about a week ago and have trouble recalling it so not very memorable.

My family and I were disappointed with this specific hotel because we stayed here during a package tour. All the other Turkey hotels were wonderful except this one. If you have the option, do not book this hotel. The rooms had multiple BUGS in them! My daughter was sleeping when I found a SPIDER on her bed! Also I found a mosquito in the room. There are 2 elevators that can only fit 3 people so majority of the time I had to walk up 5 flights of stairs to my room. The food was pretty decent and the pool is an okay size. The elevator was the worst part.

Overall the property was clean, but probably was not up to the 4 star standards that we are used to. Room was comfortable but basic. We didn't have too much of a view, a corner view of the sea.

Food was not too bad, nothing special. We also found the employees weren't overly friendly to assist when we wanted to order drinks. And don't bother with the after dinner show at the amphi-theatre, it was a bit cheesy.

Swimming was nice, although a lot of kids with water guns so it wasn't as peaceful as we hoped, but at least the kids had fun! We did take a quick dip in the sea, at first a lot of debris in the water, but once you get further in, it is quite refreshing.

This is an average hotel, with clean and standard size room and bathroom enough to give you a shower and good sleep, don't expect other things. By the time we arrive, its small lobby was very crowded with tourists. The elevator was small, only suitable for 3 persons, and was fully occupied to deliver guests' luggage, so we chose to go to and from our room at 3rd floor by the stairs. They don't provide mineral water/coffee/tea /water kettle in the room, so bring your own bottled water and put inside your bag.
Please notice that AC will only start when all doors (door to corridor and to balcony) are closed.
Breakfast was of very limited selection of bread. No egg station, only boiled egg.
Location is not of walking distance to any mini-mart/restaurant/cafe.
For tourist travelling in group who can only stop at certain destination/public toilets, the goods in the shop on the lobby was priced fair enough compared to shops at inter city toilet stops, but off course you can get lower price at a supermarket or grand bazzaar.

The view from our room was excellent, most especially the sunset. You can see the sea port and luxury cruise ships as they come and go. However, we had a bad room location, as it was beside the service elevator. The tour groups came in droves, so we can hear the constant movements of luggages and noisy bellboys. The food was good and provided many choices. The rooms are good enough.

Room Tip: Get away from the service elevators

Don't know where to start. Currently staying here for two night with tour group. This would have to be the worst so far of accommodation in Turkey. Knowing Australian standards are higher this would have to rate no higher than a 2. The rooms are disgusting, bath has crackers, verandera looks like if you lean on it,it will give way , carpet is dirty, NO coffee or tea facilatities, bad lighting, safe only had two batteries and still waiting for someone to fix it after three hours. Only one verandera chair, door lock has only one screw near lock and dinner was very average. I would not stay here again.
