Agree with ImTheWinner - we booked 10 nights here through a 'managers special' at our local Thomas Cook branch in Staffor. We told them our ages, that it was a late honeymoon and that we wanted somewhere quiet and relaxing. You can therefore imagine our horror when arriving at just after midnight on 20/10/12 to find it was next to the noisest disco / bar in the world - the No Name Bar, and there was a wedding reception at the hotel which involved Turkish Karoke. The kareoke finished around 2am, but the Bar etc went on until after 4am. In the morning turns out it wasn't a wedding but a circumscion (sic) party! It's on Bar Street - something which Thomas Cook failed to mention, and also to mention that the 'manager's special' was an Airtours holiday not from the Thomas Cook brochure.
Things were no better the next night and we finally snapped Sunday into Monday, when the hotel staff decided to have their 'end of season' party outside our bedroom window. With all doors and windows closed we couldn't hold a conversation, and added to this was the boom boom from the Bar!
So there I was on my honeymoon calling Thomas Cook at 1am - and guess what they did nothing. Eventually on the Monday morning we moved hotels (but of course there was a charge) to the Turihan Beach just round the bay - wonderful.
So if you like your holidays loud and lively this is the hotel for you. Whatever you do, do not go here expecting any sort of relaxation.
Agree also with Kirsy 202020 - food left uncovered, and staff either over friendly (wanting tips) or downright rude. We were told evening meals started at 7pm, so at 715pm we helped ourselves - you'd have thought we'd robbed the safe. The restaurant manager has got to be the worst I've ever had to deal with.
When we had the nerve to leave, they wouldn't refund our safey deposit box money and had the nerve to say if we'd said something they'd have given us a quiet room. The fact I went to reception 3 times on Sunday night / Monday morning in my pjs seemed to have passed them by!
With regard to the area - it shuts in October. When we left on Monday there were only 2 hotels open - it's half term and people had paid lots more than us for a break and had nothing to do / no where to go. Like the whole of the area, the pestering to buy can get you down and the attitude towards women in general from the younger men is appalling. I don't swear normally at strangers, but to be told to 'calm down' by some 20 something in a fake t-shirt shop when I was having a conversation with my husband made me snap - can't repeat here what I said in return.
Similarly don't be fooled into the 'free trip' to the Gold Market - hard sell at its worst!
All in all - won't be going back
Don't bother - they are all as noisy as each other
