“We had an amazing holiday!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Me and my partner booked a late deal (two days before) we had never been to Turkey but we will definitely be returning and we will be coming back to this hotel!!
Checked in late and yes this meant that we were too late for food. However, there are supermarkets and lots of bars just opposite. So that really wasn't a problem. We got checked in quickly and was shown to our rooms which was very spacious (there was only two of us but we got a triple room). It was very clean and modern. We were actually really impressed with the room and hotel.
Now to the food: There was plenty of choice but sometimes it's better to eat a few things rather than a bit of everything otherwise it may seem repetitive (They cook similar things but use different sauces ect to mix it up). The staff in the restaurant and at the bars could not do anymore to help you. They were always friendly and would say hello. We were truly spoilt on this holiday and could not have been any happier.
I've saved the best til last. The entertainment staff. Marry, Sonic and Jack made us laugh all week and somehow managed to get us as well as many other people joining in on the fun. They were so funny and actually made our holiday.
As said before, I could not praise this hotel and resort enough!! We had a great time as our first time in Turkey and we WILL be coming back!!

Just got back from this hotel and I would like to say that Sonic and the entertainment team were absolutely brilliant. They were very friendly and got everyone to join in the activities. Had loads of fun and Sonic is funny and is the star man. Overall, all the staff were good. See you next year Sonic. Mario and Helen

Me and my partner have just got back from our stay at Golden Rock. We loved the hotel, rooms were amazing, very big, lovely and clean. I had requested, when booking, a room on the top floor over looking the pool and beach, we got one on the 3rd floor which had a view of the pool and side view of the beach, which was lovely as we got the sun on the balcony late afternoon.
Food was lovely, lots to choose from, very tasty, even my partner liked the food and he is fussy!
The pool area was very nice, it was quiet everywhere as not in their season, but we still had fun.
The entertainment team were amazing, they always tried to get you involved with activities but were never pushy, they were so helpful and friendly, they really made our holiday!! especially SUPER SONIC he was so hard working and so much fun, very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. All of the staff in this hotel were fantastic!! The girl who works behind the bar in the lobby/reception area was ever so helpful and friendly.
Reception staff were not so helpful!
I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Myself and three friends stayed at the hotel, when we arrived it was after 10pm at night and we got there late because of the incompetent transfer driver (but thats another story). We were told we couldn't get anything to eat as we missed dinner. We were offered no snacks and at this point we were willing to pay but staff seem unwilling to help or offer any other services or advice as where we could go to eat as it was our first time in the country. BAD START.

PROS:
The overall style and cleanliness of hotel was good, rooms were cleaned daily and everywhere was generally clean.
A few of the staff was pleasant and even managed a smile.
The entertainment team was funny and really tried to engage everyone in their activities. Sonic and Marry was really nice and good fun and if it wasn't for them this hotel was be getting a worse rating.
The food was OK, Sometimes quite repetitive and needed a little more seasoning but that could just be my personal preference.
The Excusions were great had so much fun and the prices were fantastic 5/5 (No Name Travel Agency).

Cons:
The hotel should say ther provide NO wifi service because that was what it felt like. Staff encouraged us that a technician was in but he must have been a ghost as the problem was not fixed. Finally three days into holiday after continously complaining that we needed to contact family to say we were ok, they let us sign in on the hotel personal wifi, which kept cutting off and the connection was awful.
Most staff were rude, in the sense that they ignored you when you tried to speak to them and would chat away in Turkish laughing and talking obviously about us right in our faces. Their english was horrendous, most couldn't even understand the word hello.
The people there seem very aggressive and when you made a comment that they did not like they would literally shout "excuse me but blah blah blah"
The drinks were watered down and the local alcohol was a joke, wouldn't find what they provided in a 99p shop.

Everyone seems to be a smoker in this country hence most of the staff had bad breath and rotten teeth and one in particular made me lose me appetite over breakfast due to bad hygiene and this was early in the morning so no excuse as you just started working.

Now this was the WORST: We are four black girls and the way the staff acted especially the restuarant staff you would think that black people never graced Turkish land. They pointed, sniggered, hovered over us while we ate, and kept asking for pictures of us on their mobile. We felt like animals in a zoo, We asked why they wanted photos of us and they would just gather around and speak in Turkish and not answer either out of rudeness or because they couldn't speak english. Felt very uncomfortable.

Overall I would only go back to Turkey for their excursions but I would not stay at Golden Rock but then again I doubt any of the other hotels would differ much.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the town and beach so had great views. 307

just returned from a week holiday here weather was alright temperature got to about 26 degrees, sunny weather cloudy sometimes which was annoying but it was good never been away this early in season but yeah it was really enjoyable the hotel was clean and staff were friendly, swimming pool was amazing and the water-slides are good , food was average a trip i really recommend to do is swimming with dolphins at dolphin park which is a 5-10 min walk from the hotel, the hotel is right on the beach which is amazing , so yeah the hotel is in perfect location and there are some really nice bars restaurants , and shops outside the hotel, have come back with a great tan, would probably return again but probably a month later ,

Room Tip: Book a sea view, didn't book a sea view wish i did.

Booked 9 days here last year, top floor rooms are the best, sea or side sea view. lovely room, great bathroom and no noise! food was good, we went for all inclusive and have no complaints. Spa is definately a must! if you go as a couple it is very nice! relaxing! just what we needed!and a long but nice walk to the harbour both by the beach or main road!
Have recommended family members to go and they will be flying out this April! Very happy with everything!

Room Tip: top floor rooms have a better view, balcony rooms are good
