stayed here beginning of July 2013 in a family room which was located on the top floor so not ideal with a buggy and a toddler
we found the breakfast to be pretty normal for the area and probably the best meal of the day. lunch was pretty much the same every day except from changing 3 dishes, chicken nuggets and brussel sprouts one sunday was a very strange combination.The snack bar pizzas, pides and toasted panninis were pretty good but you do get fed up with them after two weeks.
One major thing that concerned me was the placing of raw burgers on the griddle then straight away handling the buns and other food with no washing of hands etc. surprised nobody was ill from this, I did try one burger but it was so undercooked i left it.
Evening meals were very bland and we managed to force ourselves to eat in there 4 times in total in two weeks, we did go in and look but it was very unappealing so decided to sample the great local food on offer.
we found lots of flies and wasps around when eating and the dining room was very hot, there are holes in the ceiling for fans so when these go up it should help.
these are the main issues we found
no kids food except nuggets one day a week and chips
sewage smell in room
no seating any where or around the pool bar (was tables for one night)
no shaded areas
no bins in rooms
pool area not cleaned down properly
housekeeping take 5 minutes to make your bed and mop the floor with a smelly mop, our bathroom was not cleaned in two weeks.
i watched a cleaner clean an ashtray in reception that took 8 minutes almost double the time they took to clean our room.
pool is nice but they do wait until it gets cloudy before adding more chemicals.
plates and glasses that get taken out of the rooms just get left in the corridors or slung on the grass for days, some were there for over a week.
There is only one toilet for the whole complex other than your room toilet, fine if your ground floor but not very good if your on the top floors.
Major issue with the water coolers is that they top them up with tap water, i was told this by a member of staff and have photographic evidence of it happening, these should be sealed up and not refilled.
The hotel is located at the top of the resort and you do get a bit fed up of the walk up the hill especially 6 times one day.
we ate out 10 nights during this break as we found the evening meals very poor quality and tasteless but at the price we paid this year it was still value for money.
I would consider going back but if they increase the price by much it will not be competitive.
Overall we had a lovely time and the drinks and staff were pretty good, iron out the little issues and it will be a nice little hotel
It was our 6th visit to olu deniz so know the area well and what is available so we know what is on offer else where.
