Stayed there for 7 nights from 13/7/13 till 20/7/13, hotel is far from 5* hotel.
Staff does not speak English, you will have to use both hands and legs with some ritual dancing to explain even the basic things in English. Most of them are very lazy, they just walk around pretending to do something, while most of the work is done by 16-18y old kids on summer work in this hotel(hard working and very helpful, unlike the regular staff).
Hotel is advertising free wifi, however during our stay we had none, staff explained in poor English that it will be available within one hour - same phrase every day, no WIFI in seven days.
Pool area is small and if you don't get there early, and I mean early in the morning, you will have trouble finding sunbed. They collect towels at 6pm, basically closing time for the pool.
Private beach is extremely small, and has NO SHADE, you will be in the sun whole day. Beach has rather large stones, so expect cuts on your feet.Beach is less then 100m in length, packed tightly with sunbeds, hard to get to the water. They collect sunbeds at 6pm as well, meaning you will have to go around that time, which is sad as that time is probably the most pleasant part of the day to relax by the sea.
Now the food, 7 out of 7 days, it was tomato soup, plus Anatoly soup which is again tomato soup with little addition. The other soup was fish/chicken/green peas and they all look the same, white greasy water. Expect same pasta every day (mushroom souce, bolognese, napoli and some dodgy cheese sauce). They usually serve left over slats(tomatoes, cucumbers etc..) for breakfast. Food is extremely bad here, not to mention repetition.
On a good side, rooms are clean, and they clean them regularly, all though furniture and overall look of the room is far from 5* hotel. We had very unpleasant encounter with lady working at reception, and we have even asked to speak with hotel manager - she never bothered to find out what was the problem, probably due to the fact that she also does not speak English.
In one sentence, clean rooms with old furniture, uneducated staff and very lazy, small beach with no shade anywhere with big sharp stones, small pool area, and closing time at 6.
BAD, never again.
This part of Turkey is very nice, but we will not be coming back to this hotel ever again.
