Stayed at the Telmessos for 11 nights end of July into August as a party of 4 (2 couples).
We arrived in the early hours and were welcomed by a porter who showed us to our rooms after checking in.
We had rooms next to eachother on the third floor in Block E next to the slides (I believe this was the new block?)Rooms 537 and 538, no Isuuses at all with the Accomodation.
Rooms were very clean and bedding/towels changed Almost every day which was good.
As far as food and drinks go, we found the food to be reasonable although more geared towards the non English guests but fairly edible, lots of salad at every meal, not a great choice of foods to go with your salad/potatoes etc but you wouldnt starve!. The staff in the dining areas were spot on and tidied after you immediately.
The AI drinks were nothing to write home about, local beer they were serving was tuborg in plastic beakers during the day (Not very Hygenic), Vodka was too strong to be able to enjoy it properly although you can add as much coke as you like. The AI wine was vinegary so reduced your choice really. Soft drinks were as you would expect and cold and refreshing. I would highly reccomend they serve the beer in a glass at all times of the day as it would taste better.
We were not the type to sit around the bar all day and night so we felt we were not appreciated as much as the REGULARS! so for this reason we felt the staff at the main bar were not attentative but hey ho.
The pool area was kept clean and tidy, we used the other side of the hotel which was much quieter with lovely views of babadag mountains. You still need to put towels out fairly early though and do what the eastern europeans do.
The young lad in the shop was very friendly and helpful as were the 2 guys running the bar in the quiet side. A massive word for the young porter with the pony tail, he couldnt do enough and could teach most others a few things in regards to hospitality.
Regarding the check out of the hotel, we asked to retain a room as we were leaving later in the day and asked to come back on the day we were leaving. We did this and were told no rooms were available due to Ramadam just finishing and the hotel was booked up. They could have told us this days earlier to make alternative arrangements.
We asked for facilities to be able to shower before departure and were pointed in the direction of a shower and changing room at the rear of the main reception. The shower was blocked and ran into the changing area and there were bags of rubbish outside which obviously smelt and attracted wasps/flies. They could do with improving this facility or make better arrangements for guests on the last day.
When we checked out they just took our card keys and said OK, not did you enjoy your stay or thank you for using this hotel.
I generally found the Management team very unprofessional and negative,
Hisaronu itself is fantastic with everything you need so its very much a place to be.
Alot of this may sound like a moan, really it wasnt too bad but the negative things would put me off coming to this hotel again. Did I enjoy my holiday. YES.
