“Excellent value, recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2008

First of all let me make it clear, I am reviewing the Hotel Destan in Hisaronu. The previous review is about a different hotel and bears no resemblance to the hotel in which we stayed.

We stayed for 9 nights but paid for 10 to ensure room available until our night departure. The cost of £68 for 2 on a B&B basis has to be the best value I have ever had. The breakfast was served in fantastic surroundings and was of typical Turkish fare.

The rooms, whilst being fairly basic, were a good size and cleaned daily. The pools were of a high standard and the main pool was a very attractive feature. The noise has been mentioned in earier reviews, yes we experienced this but it was the fault of other residents not the owners. A bit of courtesy to others lateat night would solve the problem. Unfortunately this is a problem experienced at many holiday destinations and will always be whilst the mindless and inconsiderate few are around.

We are just back from the "Destan Hotel" and it has been the worst accomodation we have ever stayed in and blighted our holiday big time.

When we arrived we were taken aback at how it looked nothing like in the pictures, it was an absolute kip, totally uninhabitable. The pool area and chairs were tacky, old and filthy and i didnt see the pool being cleaned once- needless to say we didnt go in it once.

The staff were extremely rude, arrogant and just downright weird, except the old man but this may be cos he didnt say a word while he was there.

As the place was so dirty and the staff so unfriendly and strange there was no way we would eat breakfast there.

The rooms were tiny, cramped, uncomfortable and the bathroom was tiny and disgusting and constantly stank. When the water ran out and we couldnt shower the staff just laughed.

We couldnt sleep for the entire week as they were just interested in getting people to drink all night at their bar, and mosts nights there were just 1 person there but they insisted in blaring music out until 5am with no consideration of the other guests/ people who dont drink or who like to get a good nights sleep.

On the last night they decided to have some entertainment with some crappy singer blaring music out until 1am when we were being picked up at 4am so couldnt get any sleep.

It is the worst holiday we have ever had and its down to this awful accomodation which is unsuitable for people who like to stay in any sort of comfort or cleanliness, couples or elderly or people with children.

It would suit maybe young singles who dont care where/ how they stay although for they would get a better location somewhere else without all the weird staff and rip off prices. We were confronted with aggressive female irish drunks at 3am shouting for no reason outside our door and random turks & cleaners deciding to have long winded loud conversations outside in the mornings which constantly woke us up as we slept in late most mornings as we couldnt sleep with the awful noise every night.

There was no fridge to keep cold water, no tv, no phone and they didnt permit food or drink from outside in.

  • Liked — There was nothing to like.
  • Disliked — The arrogant staff playing loud music til the early hours when no one was at the bar.
