A few problems to start of with, noticed ants in the bedroom as soon as we arrived but sorted within minutes of telling reception. Then after the 3 of us had showers one after the other the water was not draining away, again sorted immediately. The main problem was the air conditioning which would only run for 30 minutes at most then turn itself off. So the first night was sleepless. Again as soon as we spoke to Reception along came Ali to sort it out. All sorted for the next night but then started doing the same thing again. This time we were offered a different room as unit needed engineer to visit. A different unit was fitted and then all was fine. Can't fault the hotel for their service and think we were just unlucky. The staff worked tirelessly to try to make sure you are happy. A few seem less communicative due to language problems but we tried hard to communicate and to be honest some visitors were down right rude to them just by body language. One tip ~ it is not completely clear that fresh orange and pomegranite juice is not included in breakfast. We got caught out the first morning and after serving ourselves along came a waiter asking for our room no. to add to our bill. There is a quicker route into Dalyan which only takes 15 mins but in the heat of the day is hard going. Plenty of people strolled into Dalyan after dinner and its worth the walk to see the shops, wander along the river front, look in a few shops and stop for a drink or eat out if you want a change and also to see and hear the Mosque. Dinner choice is quite good, they do a good salad bar and desserts are yummy. Main meal is a bit more reserved but generally plenty to choose from. Don't book trips through Travel Rep, Cosmos use Brilliant Tours and its cheaper booking direct in Dalyan, just round the corner from the turtle fountain, they still collect you from hotel and Ali will take you across the river in his rowing boat so you can get to Kaunos Ruins. Recommend the 12 Island trip. Didn't bother with the mud baths as we were told its only 6 inches of mud. We also hired a car and had no problem parking at the front of the hotel. Yes there is a sign asking you not to bring in food and drink from outside, if they looked in my suitcase they would have found a bottle of water and a packet of biscuits! Pool area was immaculate, towels are put out and if none left that dear man Ali will bring you one. Plenty of room around the pool and gardens, no one seemed to put down towels to reserve sunbed. Lunch menu at Restaurant is fine, enough to choose from, from Pizza, pasta, salads, hamburgers etc. I hope the owner realises just how hard his staff work. They work long hours and have one day off a week. We only spotted 2 children while we were there, wouldn't recommend for children over 6 as it is very peaceful and possibly couldn't let their hair down and have a good run around. Can only charge electric items when in room as electric is off when key fob is removed and you go out. Safe is free. Would we go again, definitely!!
More room in a suite but bed in lounge area is a rock hard sofa bed. Main bed was huge, very comfort...
