Just returned after an 11 night stay. Hotel is clean and rooms are of adequate size. Fresh towels were given every day although the carpet was never vacuumed during our stay. The air conditioning within the rooms needed to be full on all the time as it wasn't that powerful. Balcony was a good size and the views were pleasant enough. The hotel is in a nice location, although the nearest shops and amenities are a good 20 minute walk away. However there are buses to Kusadasi every few minutes and these will take you into the town for 2.50TL. The private beach is fairly small and you have to be quick to get a space. The main pool area was the focus during the day and again you needed to be up early to find a space. There are however well maintained gardens where you can lounge the day away.
The hotel is large and was getting noticeably busier each day. However with only one bar there were often long queues to get served. As usual this was made even more difficult by those who refused to queue and with only two barmen on duty it did become a problem. Drinks were fairly limited compared to other AI hotels we've stayed at. The hotel is equipped with other bars and restaurants, but these were not open during our stay despite how busy the hotel had become.
There was one main restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner and this seemed to be operating on the limit of its capacity most of the time. The food was quite varied and of a good standard, although being situated outdoors we found that flies were quite troublesome and often found landing on the food. The best thing to do was to take from underneath if possible.
Having stayed at many AI hotels, we were surprised at the level of wasted food at this particular one with people taking three or four platefuls that they couldn't possibly eat. I must emphasise that it was not the children and some where even filling Tupperware boxes to take food away with them. This was certainly not necessary as up to 10pm there was always food available. As well as the main restaurant, there was a lunchtime service beneath the pool area, although the choices were burgers, pizza and chips mainly.
The staff on the whole worked very hard and service was generally good, although we found that the bar beneath the pool area, serving soft drinks, gave very poor service with unhelpful staff on several occasions.
I would rate the hotel as no more than 3 star and all in all good value for money. There was no food served after 10pm and the bar closed at midnight. One big plus was the entertainments team. They were by far the hardest working and inventive team we had come across and deserve special mention.
