Never really fancied Turkey before and not really sure why but was persuaded to give it a go when Hubby found a deal to this Hotel. We stayed from 21st Oct - 28th Oct and were hopeful that the weather would be good, travelling with a 17 month old and a 6 year old. We were not disappointed, although it was very chilly at night. However a small fire was lit around a seating area at night by the bar so you could still sit outside and enjoy a drink.
Have to say the Hotel, Staff and Food are deserving of an Excellent rating, we stayed in a deluxe family room which was lovely. Only downsides were and I'm being extremely picky here..... there was only 1 small wardrobe for 4 of us and no Lift (on the 2nd floor), No blinds at the round port hole style windows, so broad daylight at 6am and very very hard beds. (getting home to my memory foam was bliss). Carrying my Son in his buggy up and down the stairs did become a bit tedious and there was plenty of room for a free standing set of drawers or even another cupboard or wardrobe, but we were happy to cope for a week :)
A free Shuttle bus was provided daily for the Green Park Beach which was Sand and a lovely location for the children. I have to say we were disappointed with the Blue Lagoon as it was a pebble beach and the day we were there was full of wasps. Spent 6 out of 7 days at the Green Park beach. The Pool area was only 50% occupied as the hotel was quiet at this time of year, with a lot of things already closed down for the winter, but was beautifully kept and tidy. The Pools were freezing, again due to time of year. There is a big Fair in Hisaronu but this was already closed down too.
The area of Hisaronu was a let down for us, It is Rhyl abroad. Every shop is fake/tack rubbish that I had no interest in buying. It was hairdresser, clothes shop, handbag shop, perfume shop on repeat all the way down the street and all genuine fakes with crappy English sounding names, like Marks n Spengers, Selfridgez, Nexcst, Azda........just naff really. It would of been nice to have a few of these shops with some more authentic shops thrown in. My husband had a Turkish shave a few times whilst we were there, he went to 'Cut the Crap' and thought they were excellent. We spent the day in Fethiye and this is a much nicer area, with a Market, Harbour, nice shops and the tack if you want that sort of thing.
The food at the Hotel was fabulous, home cooked meals and very generous portion sizes. We ate there every night and were not disappointed once. We were told of other nice places in the main street but stayed at the hotel purely for convenience with a baby and small child. I have no regrets in doing so, the Sunday dinner was delicious and particularly enjoyed by my meat/2 veg loving Son.
The thing that makes this hotel so bloody brilliant though is the Staff, never have I been abroad and felt so at home. I actually felt sad to leave and could easily of stayed for another week. So a big thank you especially to Charlie and Baz, sheriff, Omer and Isa. The guys made such a fuss of the kids and nothing we asked was ever too much trouble. Well done to you all, hopefully we'll see you again one day. Miss you already!!
