We stayed here in July 2012, our first time in Turkey, we fell in love with the place… if you go try the food at smiley’s which is heading south to the beach and also try trotters which is north of the hotel amazing clean and cheap.
We even wanted to return to this hotel for 2013 due to its loction but things changed in the last 2 days and will not be returning due to:
Heard countless stories about the bar bills overcharged, drink prices changing. Like Rossb190 we got annoyed every night to go for something to eat or drink, we finally gave in on the last night, to be hit with a bill next day for drinks we didn’t order.
The Turk guy that lobbies about doing nothing but chatting to girls turn aggressive on my girlfriend, as she refused to pay the bill that was not ours. I had to get the bar man involved and he said I was on camera, I was glad of this and asked him to show me it to which he couldn’t. After a 3hr debate which should have been our last day of our holiday enjoy the sunshine they finally gave in and said it was not our bill.
Hip hip oooarrrhh!
Please also note that you are not allowed to drink or eat by the pool unless you buy from there bar, we had to drink our water at the gate of the hotel as you are not allowed to be consumed on the hotel premises, I thought it was self catering holiday I had booked (hmmm)
FEW POINTS TO NOTED
Pool too deep for babies, most adults can’t touch the bottom
Slide only on for 1hr or 2 during the day
I wouldn’t recommend this hotel due to the aggressive Turk that harassed my girlfriend lucky she is from tough cookie from Glasgow he quickly backed off, I assume most families give in and pay coz they wouldn’t be so tough.
If you have booked already go and enjoy turkey, but don’t eat or drink at the bar.
One last point on the last day we had to go over the road to hire a room as they didn’t have a left luggage department never came across this in my life and I go 10 holidays a year.
