5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Right folks i,m only gonna say this once...............If you are going to Kusadasi Turkey, Don,t book any hotel, BUT the Ponz Apartments Hotel, You will not be disappointed and will never have cause to complain about anything . I stayed in June for two weeks and have just returned again after two weeks, and am already planning our next trip...........We had a party atmosphere welcome at 3 in the morning, Room service breakfast next morning, with food cooked excellently by the chef, Hot water at all times , and the Lady that changes Linen and cleans your room,deserves a medal, as she works very hard and does an excellent job every few days......... The bus stop for town is litarally 1 minute away,( whoever is on reception will gladly call you their local taxi, should you decide not to go by bus) The management (Yilmaz and Michelle) are the friendliest team you will ever have the pleasure to meet. Nothing is to much trouble, I forgot my hairdryer , michelle loaned me one from her home, also she understood I needed loads of hangers, that was organised before We arrived (haven,t told her yet but next time i,ll require an ironing board) ha ! ha ! and i,m sure she will find one somewhere, because she,s terrific...........The Pool is spacious and there are plenty sun-beds to go round..........the Staff are friendly , helpful,and are alot of fun too, on party nights and special events, and there are plenty of those, The beach is 3 mins from hotel and then you get the fantastic hussle and bussle of holiday life, Once back in Ponz you don,t hear a thing so you will definatly get a good nights sleep , when you decide to come home of course ha ha !! Ponz is Spacious/Clean/Has lots to offer (Wi-Fi..........Snooker table..........tv,s in Bar and Reception area............Beauty room/Nail bar............and do you know what????? all facilities are open to passing public, so please if you have unfortunatly booked elsewhere and are reading this ........Spend two minutes out of your day and pop in for a quick look around, enjoy some of the facilities , and meet the Management and staff, I promise you this , you will not be disappointed!!!! and you will wish you,d booked there for your stay, and if you are planning to go soon and haven,t booked yet, book the Ponz Apartments you will love it!! maybe we,ll see u there? we,re already planning our next visit.....Happy Booking Everyone...........xx Fantastic Place , Fantastic rates ,xx

Room Tip: If you want over the top space , book the 3 dbl bedroomed penthouse on the roof, it will accomadate...

We go to Turkey every year at least once we have a villa there this year one of our rentals crossed over our stay & we spent the last 3 days of our holiday this year at our old favourite Ponz Apts.
Still the most relaxed & friendly hotel I know, it attracts friendly people & even people who holiday alone won't feel lonely or isolated as there isalways someone to chat to.
Delicious food served all day & well into the night at very reasonable prices & really good special offers.
Rooms though basic have comfotable beds, showers that work & are also reasonably priced air con is available if you need it which is a +.
It's so close to Ladies Beach another big +.
I hear they have plans to revamp - that should increase the star rating & make it the best place to stay in the area.

Room Tip: Have stayed several times & like all the rooms, they are positioned around the pool in a way tha...

I had a great time at the hotel, room and balcony great, service for breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper etc and drinks-all good. Employees there extremely helpful as was the manager who went out of her way to help. Pool and loungers very comfy and cold wet lemon towel given out when very warm a lovely gesture as was the fruit on a stick each day. Prices very reasonable. Near to beach and amenities-Turkish folk very friendly and could not do enough to ensure a great holiday. When I return, I will certainly stay at the Ponz again-thankyou all

It very close to Ladies Beach, only few minutes away. Staff is very helpful and I enjoyed their hospitality all 10 days I stayed there. Rooms are large, simply equipped, but with enough furniture, in a range of many 2 or 3 stars hotels I was in. They changed bedclothes and towels every third day, even on 9th day I stayed there. They have clear water pool with sun beds and umbrellas around it. If I go to Kusadasi again I will probably stay there.

Just returned to Altinkum after a mini jaunt to Ladies Beach and a stay at the Ponz. This hotel is just a few steps away from the beach; the rooms are clean, light and airy with comfortable beds and good pillows (essential!). The bar has an English Pub feel to it and has a great range of drinks and the restaurant carries a vast range of cuisine with generous portions (you should see the size of the Yorkshire puddings!). No overpricing either.

We were there for a night of entertainment and bbq that was attended by over 200 people who partied well into the next day! Superb entertainment, delicious food and fantastic night had by all.

Day 2 was spent lazing around the large pool with occasional trips to the bar/restaurant to graze. The place is a real credit to professional and gregarious hosts Michelle and Yilmaz . Fantastic, we will return.

I was in Ponz Apartments in August 2012. Before booking this accommodation, I read all reviews here, but still I was a little worried. When we arrived, we had to wait a little for check -in (we arrived early) but staff was really friendly, so we did not notice waiting.
Rooms are really large comparing other 3 star hotels. Simply furnished, but everything you need for few weeks. Furniture is old but functional. Balcony is really big with nice view to pool area. Daily garbage throwing, cleaning almost every day, bed linen and towels was changed in 3 days. All day hot water. All in all, more than I expected!
Ladies beach is very close, only few minutes walk. From the top of the hotel there is a nice view to Ladies beach and sunset. Pool is very nice, with many sunbads and sunshades, although I did not use it, I prefer sea!
Staff was more than friendly and ready to help immediately. We had some problem with electricity, but it was fixed only 30 minutes after we mentioned it to receptionist. Thanks very much to Denis (barmen) and Hussein (receptionist)!
All in all, if you do not expect a lot for a little money, Ponz apartments will offer you more than pleasant stay. If I come to Kusadasi again, I will probably stay there again!

We stayed in a villa on the same complex of Ponz Apartments, we were able to use the pool and facilities of the hotel, the pool is very large and there are plenty of sunbeds, no need to get up early and book one! The food is excelelnt, we ate here on several occassions and they even organised a birthday cake for my daughters birthday, thanks Dennis. Free fruit kebabs and cold towels at lunch time was a lovely bonus, the villa we rented for 2 weeks was 3 bedrooms, extremely comfortable, home from home wth aircon in every bedroom and the living room. The complex is just a 5 minute walk from the beach which is fantastic. I highly recomend staying at either hotel or renting a villa, the staff can't do enough to help. WE hope to return again!
