“Dirty rooms, and the worst beach in Cesme area”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

First of all, this is NOT a new hotel. The hotel was called "Lemon Hotel and Beach", and now is has a new name since one of the partners took over. Other than the name, everything is the same. The hotel looked lovely and green, and it was really quiet. The room we stayed in was very spacious, and had a double bed and two single beds for kids, and it had a balcony. What we really liked was that almost all rooms have a sea-front view. There are two pools, not big enough to have a good swim, but especially the sea-water one had a decent size. Breakfast was ok. and they can make scrambled eggs or pancakes.

However, like most hotels in the area, the hotel was too expensive for what it offered. There are two major problems to beware. The hotel is not clean. The cleaning is done by inexperienced male staff who are not trained for the job. When we first walked into our room, the bathroom was really dirty with stains and hair from previous guests on the floor, the tub and the toilet. We asked it to be cleaned again, and when we came back to our room, it was not different at all, we asked for a second round of cleaning, which was really frustrating on our first day. The linens were not changed AT ALL and on our 6th night, we had to ask for the linens to be changed. Again, when we got back, the sheets were not changed, so we had to ask again. The attitude was not friendly or helpful, either.
The second big problem was the beach. Because of the location of the hotel (it is on the right-end of the Ilica beach), all the dirt left from ships and boats ended up at the beach. The sea was ok-ish until 10:30 a.m. and after that, it was all brown with toilet wastes from ships and boats. It was disgusting (see the pictures!). The sea gets better and better as you walk away from the hotel - but we had to walk a good 2 kilometers or so until we reached Sheraton to be able to swim. We ended up going elsewhere for a swim everyday, but I don't know what we would have done if we didn't have a car. It was a great disappointment. All in all, we had to pay much more money than you'd pay for a 5 star hotel in Antalya, for instance, and all we got in return was unchanged sheets, dirty bathroom, and a brown, disgusting sea. Very unfortunate. I would definitely not return back.

Location is perfect, beach is nice. Service is very slow, it takes at least 45 minutes to get coffee. Rooms have very nice view but dirty and smells very bad.

Rooms were perferct, we altough stayed at room called "akdeniz" which is the basic room light and view of the room was perfect, next time I will try rooms "japon" or "tas ev" its perfect for honeymoon planners
On the other hand main focus of this hotel is the beach, there is a dj whole day and as we stayed in the weekdays place was not so crowded, it can be different on weekend

they are just serving breakfast it worth to have breakfast with the perfect view, there is also a pool restaurant and a bar in the hotel but you have to pay extra money to eat there, thats why we choose to eat at outside restaurant

at last everything was so elegance and romantic they deserve every single money that I paid
