“Aggressive Turk = Harressment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

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:

LAST DAY
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.

1st of all i would like to say all hotels have the same policy food and drink consumed on hotel grounds can only be from hotel bar ...selfcatering means you may eat what you like in your room eg mcdonalds burger king pizza etc
2nd point most of our customers are regulars and return 1-2 times at least a year we try to treat all customers like family
3rd point staff do not harass there just a bit over friendly
4th point slide is on a timer everday and is more than the 2 hours suggested
5th point like most hotels check out times are set tiems but for a small fee the room can be kept on if its not in waiting for new customers as room willhave to be cleaned and new bedding etc done.
if there is a problem with the bill we will double check with you and try and sort out the problem after all were only human....

It has been my first ever time going to Turkey this year, and I stopped in Maxwell Appartments. It is placed in the centre being the location of everything. With the main road only a 2 minute walk away, having many several shops/bars/restraunts. The Beach is only further along, and theres a shop right next door to the Hotel which is also very handy. The Staff are so helpful and friendly, and make you very welcome. Theres entertainment on a night time whether it's staff dancing or shows such as Michael Jackson, The Snake Show, Magic Show, etc. The appartments are very clean, and good sizes. The cleaners are also very friendly. There is a Bar by the pool serving drinks, snacks and meals all day long. The food is not the very best but certainly isn't the worst, I only ate there a few times for dinner, always went out for tea anyway. There is a slide there which unfortunatly isn't open that often during the day only about 3 times, if only it was open all day it would be better for kids. The Pool is a good size not too big or too small, although you cannot stand anywhere in it which is weird but still many children went in with floaters and dingys which are for free already in the pool. But I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and miss it already! Hopefully if we go to Turkey next year, we defonatly stay in this Hotel again! Once you go there you'll want to go back. It was a fantastic stay and look forward to my next one!

Room Tip: The Rooms along the top floor or smaller but quieter. Rooms in the middle have bigger balconeys. R...
