“Basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We went here when i was pregnant, we werent told we had to pay extra for air con but we did..
The hotel was very very basic but the room was clean and tidied every day, staff were very friendly and helpful. One member of staff got a bit much at one point and the music around the pool got a bit high at one point, but overall the pool was very clean. Every night we ate at Jasmin Garden restaurant!

Went for 1 week in July 2012 , fab hotel and great atmosphere for such little price!
Basic but clean!!
Staff are so friendly, air con and safe available at resonable price!.
Drinks are also good price at the bar in the hotel.
Just a nice walk out from the main centre so never to loud and noisy!
10 min walk from main strip and 15 min walk from the beach.
Going back next year!! Such a fab hotel
So much better than a 2* !!!

Lovely place
Lovely family run business
Just the job
No frills,but then again its small no masses of families running riot.
Me and my husband loved it and met two lovely couples here.
close to everything
Uncle festers great pub for football on sky and cheap beer...
The minstral bar on the beach does great sizzling steaks at amazing prices....
Don't forget to leave room in cases for the handbags....

Just spent two wonderful weeks at the Ali Baba. I didn't get off to a good start, I fell off the bus and as it turned out, broke my heel. The standard of service was instantly revealed, when Seb, (The owner)and Alex the barman rushed out and carried me in. This was typical of the standard of service at this small, unpretentious family run hotel.
The hotel itself, is small and very conveniently placed. Rooms are spotless and regularly cleaned and towels replaced.There's everything you need in there to have a good holiday. The hotel grounds are kept in the same condition.
The staff are all, pleasant, polite and extremely helpful. The bar is open until three in the morning, but not noisy as the guests tend to be a mature group. I did notice that the majority of guests when we were there, returned year after year. Snacks which are well made and substantial are available at all times. If you don't fancy going out for a meal on an evening, the staff will advise you on local delivery food and 'phone in your order. I recommend the Konya Negris Pide salonu.
Even with a plaster cast up to mid thigh, greatly restricting movement, Seb and the staff turned what could have been a rotten holiday into a very pleasant two weeks. Booking next year's trip very soon. What more can I say.

Room Tip: We had to have a ground floor room because of my heel. Even down by the pool where our room was, was...

Had a meal with special king prawns beautiful. The overall treatment from the staff was very good and friendly. I would recommend anybody to visit. Very good value for money. All the meals where large portions and a struggle to eat.
