me and my boyfriend have just returned from a 10 night stay in this hotel. Arrived early hours tue morning and where shown to our club room- room was like a prison cell, no terrace or balcony, just a small square window and a door. room wasn't even plastered, stains everywhere and bathroom sink was dirty. Went back to reception and advised we were not happy with room to be told hotel full come back in morning. We asked reception if there was anywhere we could eat he told us we could order a domino's pizza for 30tl. we agreed to this. Pizza was freezing and horrible, we think this is a scam as the pizza is less than 20tl from domino's! We returned in morning after a horrible nights sleep and manager said come back at 12 when people have checked out! we returned and shown another room which was better but tiny, we were then reluctantly shown a third room which was much better and had a balcony! we decided that this was adequate and the best we were going to get!
FOOD- was ok if you like salad, bread, olives and pasta! same food repeated daily! if you went to breakfast after 9 then no bread for toast just French bread! evening meal was sometimes ok as they had a chef making fresh food! Ended up eating out a lot as nothing to eat on most occasions! at the end of the ten days I was really fed up of the food! Cleanliness of restaurant not very good, dirty floor and table cloths turned over to hide stains!
DRINK- soft drinks good although always seemed to run out of diet coke! vodka definitely watered down, we got a bottle of vodka from the airport and ended up drinking this instead, no choice, no cocktails boring drinks!
HOTEL-lovely setting and view, needs a lot of TLC and could be a great hotel. 3 pools spent most of the time at top pool, around the pools were cups from night before and never really seen anyone cleaning up! lots of steps but didn't really mind this! tables and chairs are plastic and need updating. could do with a lick of paint and a tidy up and it would be a lot better! if you go to bitez beach and go out of the back of the hotel be ready for what you will see, it is very dirty, rubbish everywhere, bottles, glasses and rubbish! there are also staff quarters that look 100 times worse than the hotel! The beach is lovely and spent a few days down there and had breakfast a couple of times.
STAFF- had a turkish bath when we arrived and the staff are really good especially Fabio who was very friendly and gave us good information about gumbet/bodrum! only about a handful of staff who are friendly and helpful! reception staff miserable and unhelpful. some bar staff smile once and a while!
restaurant staff awful, one member of staff very sleazy towards girls on there own or in a gang, will go out of his way to flirt, get them drinks and harras them! watching him was embarrassing as he thinks he is gods gift! overall view of the staff is very unprofessional, uncomfortable to be around and if your with your partner do not expect them to help you in anyway they only bother if your a girl in a group or turkish!
After reading other reviews I thought people were being to fussy but I now understand what they mean! this could be a lovely hotel if they cared about what their customers thought and wanted, talking to other people they had many of the same views!
Great location but would not return to this hotel, Im just glad that me and my boyfriend got a good deal at the begin of the year because other people had paid a lot more than us!
