“Lykia World Oludeniz is just a fairy tale!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

I liked this place at once! I heard of it a lot. so that decided to go there with my friends and was not dissapointed at all! This hotel is situated in the very picturesque and breathtaking place of Turkey.
Service is excellent indeed: they smile at you and are so helpful, it makes your staying convenient. Our rooms were cleaned every God`s day, and I think it is one of the most important significatives of any good hotel. After having splendid sleep in our comfortable and cozy rooms, we used to have very delicious breakfast indeed! My friend was firstly introduced with Turkish cousine at that time and fell in love with it at once))) Personally, I liked the nature, beautiful sandy beaches, inviting transparent sea...The prices are reasonable and I guess, it is important moment for anyone who would like to have unforgetable vacation without much consumption. We with friends decided to come here the next year as well! I strongly recommend you to go there and to have really good time and rest!

Checked in with a family of 4. Check-in experience was easy and good, and we were really looking forward to our stay. We booked a family suite and the room was OK. There are no thermostat controls which is very odd and when you shower, water flows everywhere (very strange design). We went to the Marina restaurant for dinner and the food was absolutely horrible. There is tons of variety and I would estimate at least 75-100 choices. However, this is where everything goes wrong, most of the items are tasteless and dry. There is so much quantity that the quality is completely missing. The service is very poor at best. The staff does a poor job of cleaning the tables, our was quite wet when we sat down. The staff does not take away the dirty plates (it is a buffet), and good luck trying to get clean silverware between courses. At breakfast, the table cloth had stains.

It is not all bad news, the pool is very nice and the private beach is fantastic. Overall, I would equate this to a really bad cruise ship experience. They herd you in with pretty pictures, nice pool, nice beach and very generous commission to the travel agents. After you are here, the only thing they care about is how much extra money they can extract from you for all the extra's.

Yes the surroundings are senic and beautiful, breath taking even, but this place is too big, you never know where you at, or what bar the entertainment is on. There is NO TODDLER POOL except in the Kids club! and the is ants everywhere there. You need to supply a card per drink you want at the bar it's a nightmare, the room cards keep not working and needing changed, we r In the village about 15 minute walk from the reception, most of the staff are not helpful and don't speak english. They take forever to serve you at the bar, the kids club is Not well run, my husband watched them lose a child when he wandered out to the POOL my husband took him back. The food was covered in flies, the restraints are swamped by wasps. Myself my husband and two children have been ill for the whole week we have been here, we unfortunately have another week to go. Waste of £5000 should have went to Cyprus. My poor son has water illness from the filthy water in the water park, its smelly and cloudy and the ground is covered in tiny sharp stones so you are in agony trying to walk, there is no stairs to the above pools, only rope on skippy tiles. Our room is horrible, the beds are solid the covers are crispy, the tv is tiny and from the 80s. i find lykia world too big, confusing, unfriendly, filthy, unsanitary, non professional, dated dangerous and I'm livid i wish we had never came, lastly don't stay in the village there are hardly any Brits here and everyone goes by this time scale so at what is 6am to us is 8am here and you will be woken every day by people and cleaners loudly walking past your door, kids shouting Ect..

We are a family of four with two teenage daugthers one 18 and the other 16 and have just returned from Lykia World. Having read some of the other review I was concerned about what we had booked. Yes there are certain area the need attending to but on the whole the resort gardens and pools are well maintained. I also understand that after this season it is all going to change. There is one big issue that I feel needs addressing is the number of WASPS all over the puddings and swimming in the sweet sauces at the Marina resturant I would suggest the pudding section is put behind closed doors. If you have problems walking be aware this is a very large resort and there are alot of steps and steep paths. Also the bed are extremley hard I did ask our rep to she if see could arrange for a softer mattress but one never appeared and she never got back to us.

A special mention must go to the Entertaiment team who put on some fabalous show and organised daytime activities. My youngest daughter had a great time with the teen club run by Karmel they did various activites and was always open to the kids suggestions if they wanted to do somehting else.

If there is one great thing about this hotel, then it would be its location in Oludeniz. The nature is great and unusually diversified for a Turkish sea resort: mountains come right to the hotel area, there are plenty of shady pine trees, the sea is gorgeous, with a large sandy / small pebbles beach. The resort occupies a rather extensive land plot, so there is plenty of space to enjoy the outside. There are also many good places to spend time with a small child: at the sea (there are areas protected by stones from the waves, where small kids can play safely), under the pines and in a reasonable kids club / pool.

This is where the good things end. Hotel facilities (at least in the Lykia Village area, where we stayed) are pathetic: looks and feels very much like late 1980s / early 1990s buildings, which were supposed to be renovated, but did not seem to get a significant renovation touch. Electricity was going off / burning down in our room every other day, although to be fair the technical staff were rather quick and skilled to fix it. Furniture is old and breaking; so are the bathroom facilities. Internet connection is very poor; the only reasonable connection is at the reception area, which is expectedly crowded in the daytime and very noisy in the evenings (dancing floor right next to reception). Be aware that the rooms are generally very noisy, as you hear both the outside noise and your neighbors very well.

Hotel staff deserves a special notice: unfriendly and rather unhelpful at the reception; very strange in the facilities themselves (cleaners won't be cleaning the floors for days until we had to catch them / drag in the room to at least wipe the floors; minibar changing staff would not come for days until you call a front desk and specifically ask for their arrival). The sense of hospitality is fully absent in the hotel.

Food is ok although restaurants are normally crowded (rather expected for a high holiday season, so no issues). Bars and their support staff are good.

On the other hand, all of this comes for a rather cheap price compared to other Turkish sea resorts that I've visited, so I presume this is value for money.

Overall, if you are ok getting mediocre hotel facilities / service for a reasonably cheap price, but at the same time get a wonderfull surrounding nature / sea, then this is a good place for you.
As for our stay in Lykia World Oludeniz, the child (2 year old) liked it, while the parents did not.

Just returned from a lovely relaxing week & have to say the food is top notch , although was a little annoyed to be charged €100 per person to use the different a la carte restaurants as all in collusive should mean that ! , don't mind a supplement for fillet steak , lobster & prawns etc , although you could quite easily eat in the buffet if you don't mind the usual Russian/German barging , bad mannered queue jumping , if you don't want the extra expense of all the a la carte restaurants you can buy them in 6 ,4 or 3 packages or individually , but definatly splurge on the Turkish Sofra & the tapinyaki as they are a great evening of food & fun , the adults only infinity pool by the fish restaurant neptune is very tranquil & I would like to praise the young girl who worked tirelessly behind the bar all day & always had a smile on her face & nothing was too much trouble (apologise for not remembering her name)

We stayed at the Lykia World resort in June for 10 nights and chose the hotel as we had stayed at the sister hotel in Antalya 3 years ago and loved it!
There is definitely room for improvement with this hotel as we encountered a number of issues during our stay.

Booking through Thomas Cook
We booked our holiday through an agent on behalf of Thomas Cook. Since we were travelling with a 5 month year old and a 3 year old toddler we booked a family room to give us the space we needed. However, upon arrival we were shown to a double room, which consisted of 2 single beds joined together and a sofa bed for our son to sleep on. The room was very dated, cramp and far too small for a family of 4. Anyone who has a toddler will know that they rarely sit still; because of the cramp nature of the room, our son tripped and bumped himself on a number of occasions because there was very little room to manoeuvre.

When we raised this with the hotel they stated that the room we had been allocated was "their version" of a family room and because it slept 4 people there was nothing further they could do for us. We spoke to the on site Thomas Cook rep on a number of occasions and it was clear from the conversations that they were unable to help us.

There is a clear discrepancy between terminology used by Thomas Cook and that adopted at the hotel. To upgrade to a "family room" would have cost us an additional £400; so we were left to make do in the room we had been given.

We also found the area a little noisy in the evenings; people could be heard returning to their rooms late at night and during one night, we had a young boy bang on our door at 10.30/11pm trying to escape his mother! Luckily our two children were unaffected but this may bother some families.

Please also beware of direct transfers from/to the airport; we had paid extra to have this and on the journey to the hotel we had the luxury of a car to ourselves. However on the return journey, we ended up sharing a mini bus with 10 others.
I would definitely think twice before booking another Thomas Cook holiday.

Staff and hospitality
The resort is missing one fundamental element, hospitality. The resort is vast and despite the staff all going about their duties, management have overlooked focusing on welcoming their guests and making their experience as enjoyable as possible.
I agree with one of the guests who mentioned in their review the issue with staff being able to speak English. I found that staff, especially those at the front desk were unable to understand simple English phrases.
Moreover, during our check out, the front desk was only manned with two individuals who could check us out, whilst other staff members were standing idle. Also, we had to leave our luggage at the front desk unsecure, since the luggage room was already full and unable to house our cases.

Children's Paradise
The main reason we booked this resort was the Aqua Mania water park on the premises. Although our son went there a few times during our stay, I think the resort needs to do more with the space they have, it didn't live up to the expectations we were hoping. When you compare this water park to some of the others we have visited, Dubai for example, its definitely in need of some modernisation.
Also, my son was refused an ice cream from the children's restaurant because we arrived 2 minutes after they had closed!

Restaurants
The buffet restaurant was our main choice for meals; it was typical of most buffets, a lot of the same sort of food each day so after a few days we started to struggle for choice.
We were really looking forward to eating at the Teppanyaki restaurant that is advertised throughout the resort; however when we went to book it I was advised that it was not yet open due to lack of chefs.
We were advised not to drink tap water by the Thomas Cook rep when we arrived at the airport. So we were very surprised to find that bottled water was not available in the restaurant where we ate our meals and only available at the bars.

There are no staff to seat guests during meal times so on a number of occasions we were left roaming around the restaurant with 2 children in tow trying to find an empty table. Not on one occasion did a member of staff greet us at our table to ask if we wanted any drinks etc.
Please be aware that some drinks/snacks are not included in the AI option, including freshly squeezed juices and branded ice lollies.

Gym
My husband was keen to use the gym but was disappointed to learn that it was not open for long stretches in the day. It opened at 9am and then closed from 12.30 to 3.30pm and then closed for the day at 6pm.

Plus points
Plenty of quite areas to sit and relax; large number of pools so overcrowding is not an issue.
Both my husband and I enjoyed the Spa treatments, in particular the Turkish Bath is highly recommended.

Overall a disappointing holiday but we tried to make the most of it for the sake of our 3 year old. I wont be coming back to Lykia World Oludeniz.

Hello ,
Firstly,I would like to thank to you for choosing our hotel.
Thomas Cook is the biggest tour operator that we work with.It is better to report your complaints about their services to Thomas Cook .We are sure they will evaluate your complaints as soon as possible and return back to you.
Furthermore,we give the rooms as like our guests booked.Our room categories and properties clearly exist on our website.
Your comments about the language level of our front office staff were surprised us.Also you are right with your complaints about luggage room.We will sort it out.Due to staying families with children on Village section,there can be some noise.
It is our big mistake to not to give ice cream because of being late for 2 minutes.We apologise to you and your child.
The water that you drank in the main restaurants is not a tap water.It is a healty,filtered water.Me and my family also drink that water.
