My Partner and myself have recently returned home after spending a fortnight at the Alta Beach Hotel.
To begin with I feel I should say that we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday as we went with limited expectations as the holiday was extremely cheap and you do get what you pay for!
When we arrived at the Hotel, we were escorted to a three bedded room at the side of the hotel that was extremely small and with no view at all. There was no balcony and the door and electrics seemed extremely unsafe. As we were tired however, we did not complain until the following morning when without hesitation we were moved to a Family Suite overlooking the smaller pool which although in need of an overall, was sufficient.
The food at the hotel needed much improvement as not only was it never more than luke warm but there was very little choice requiring us to eat out on a few occasions.
However, i did not at any time witness the Staff being rude. They were always pleasant and eager to help us. I think that their English was extremely limited and this may have come across as being rude to some of the customers.
Another downfall of this Hotel was that the only places to sit in the evening was around the poolside or overlooking the marina. I did not witness any entertainment on any night other than loud dance music.
On a positive note however, the Hotel was in a great position overlooking the Marina and about a 10 minute walk from the centre. Buses were in abundance and ridiculously cheap. We spent some time getting out and about visiting other resorts which was well worth the effort.
Also the pool area, restaurant and rooms were cleaned on a daily basis. There were cats and dogs roaming around but this is what we expected in Turkey as there is an abundance of homeless animals. This never caused a problem for us as being animal lovers we were always quick to acknowledge and fuss these friendly animals.
Overall, I would say if you want 5 star luxury then pay for it, otherwise make the most of a cheap holiday in a delightful country!
