We stayed at The Asena Beach from 4th May for 11 nights. We are a couple in our early thirties. We were pleased with the accomodation for the price we paid. It's location is great for a short walk to the beach however due to the hotel being in the thick of the main street it is very noisy. At night the bars go on until the early hours often 3am and this is quite disturbing when trying to sleep, after a few nights you tend to get used to it! with cotton wool a help!
The breakfast is very basic as you would expect, although the fruit is lovely and cereals. The toaster didn't work most of the time so we tended to have dry bread dipped in honey. The annoying thing about breakfast is the waiters! They pester you while you are eating, to sell the hotels evening activities and to offer you a half board option. We had no interest in any of these but they still pestered us every day while we were trying to chew our breakfast! very irritaing and off putting to us and our main reason for not returning to Asena Beach in the future..
The pool area got very busy as it did not seem large enough for the size of the hotel. We were there when the hotel was nowhere near full and yet there were limited spaces by the pool, we only wanted a couple of days there for a change.
Due to Turkey not being as cheap as it used to be I would not recommend Bed and Breakfast for holidays over 10 nights. We ate out at some gorgeous bars and restaurants on an evening and had our favourites but it adds up to more than the cost of the b&b holiday! The food quality was excellent at the places we went to, Far better than if we had been half board at The Asena Beach (after people telling us) but there are nicer hotels to stay at that are not much more expensive, even our tour rep told us this.
The Asena Beach hotel does need an uprgrade to be honest. I would not class it 4 star after viewing other hotels in Olu Deniz while on holiday. At the beginning of May the hotel was not fully open. A very small resturant was only open, no internet cafe, the fountains were broken and the table tennis was broken. Did not see darts or other sports that it mentioned in the brochure. As for the gym, it was just 1 piece of equipment! We chose to jog early morning along the beach front. The rooms are very old, clean and large sized but the doors still leave enough space for insects and mosquitos to fly in!
Olu Deniz is a stunning resort and the people are very friendly. The weather at the start of May was nice. We arrived to rain but that only affected the 1st 2 days of our holiday then we had lovely sunshine aprox 78 degrees every day and the sea was just warm enough to swim in too.
On departure to Dalaman ensure you have some snacks and drinks for the airport. We were advised of the cost at Dalaman and it is ridiculously expensive. A small KFC Meal is aprox £10. We unfortunately had a 12 hour delay but were given refreshments through our tour operator free of charge.
On arrival back to the UK we soon booked a return trip to Olu Deniz this year. We are staying at an all inclusive hotel that we viewed in the centre of the resort, for the last 2 weeks of September and cannot wait!
