My boyfriend and I have just got back from a week at the Akdeniz, and it was absolutely ideal for what we needed. I had been feeling really apprehensive about the hotel as some of the reviews I had read via tripadvisor had been really poor. Olu Deniz was reviewed everywhere as stunning, and it really is! The hotel was lovely, admittedly first impressions when we saw the plastic grass and rather tacky sign weren't great, but as soon as we walked in we could see it was very pretty.
The hotel is small, and based around the pool and courtyard so is secluded and keeps the sun for a very long time. The staff were fantastic, and really freindly, they enjoyed making everyone laugh and were very helpful and entertaining. There was such a range of people there (age wise) and we met some lovely couples during the week - everyone was so friendly, you get a real community feel from it. Its a perfect resort for families, and couples, and is literally 10 minutes tops from the Blue lagoon (3 lire but well worth it). Shops and restaurants were fantastic, food at the hotel was delicious and traditional, with a wide selection and will cater for even fussy eaters with chips and salad as an option most nights. The pool is perfect temperature to cool you down as the weather was boiling every day, and lilos, rubber rings etc are provided for free if you need them.
Breakfast continued until people stopped wanting it which was great and meant there was a possibility of a lie in if you needed one! Entertainment every night was such a laugh - bingo, turkish belly dancing, karaoke etc. This is the only thing that some people complained about though as it did go on till 12ish - we loved it but if you're looking for guaranteed quiet nights then maybe this hotel isn't for you.
Boat trip is a must - £6 for the whole day including lunch and the area is even more beautiful surrounding the hotel and in the coves hidden in the mountains.
We had an amazing week and I would ignore all the bad reviews, it was clean, friendly, and HOT, with delicious food and flowers on our beds some mornings - Lovely. Definitley recommend it and I think we'll be going back next summer!
(As an afterthought though, teletext holidays weren't that great to book through, unless you book very early morning the offer has already gone, and although still cheap for an all inclusive week and what we got for our money, we still ended up paying £270 for a holiday which was advertised as £209. Oh and remember a tenner for your visa, some people didn't know about this!!)
