“Not the best choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

We stayed at Buyuk Berk Chalet as we saw the photos from their website, that rooms are more modern, which was unfortunately not true. The photos were actually either fake or changed well with photoshop. The room was clean, no problems with air-conditioner. The hotel personal was really kind.
The breakfast was an average Turkish breakfast with lots of fruit. The lunch has lot of varieties of food ,every kind of Turkish food, but lasts only 50 min. After these 50-60 min you cant find anything. You can eat at tea time some borek as a late lunch, but the quality of it is really not good. All day long it is said that drinks are free, but coke didn't have gas in it. The best drink was beer! These drinks and foods cant be transported to the seaside, as seaside doesn't belong to the hotel and there wasn't any service to the seaside. As the fish restaurants in Cunda Island are famous, we didn't eat out dinner at the hotel. After we come back at 11-12 o'clock the bar wasn't open and we couldnt even drink a glass of water.
Buyuk Berk Hotel wasn't the best choice in that area, to stay at Cunda island would be a better idea than Sarimsakli.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

We were in this hotel 10 days on all-inclusive, and it was very great to stay there. The food is excellent, and when you pay all-inclusive, there is food and drink all day, and you can choose whatever you want to drink. It is much better to be on all-incl. then on half-p. The service is great, rooms are renovated a few years ago. They have 2 pools, and 3. with slides. The hotel is near the centre of Sarimsakli, and also you can go to Ayvalik and Cunda which are 5-10 min. by car or bus. You can park your car around hotel free, too. In the night, there is live music outside the hotel. Also they organise animations for guests all day,like games in pools, sports in pools and beach volleyball, and games for children,too.

Room Tip: We were in the main bulding, there is one more building near this, but I don't know how are room...
