I stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend of the time in June 2010.
We found the staff helpful and friendly. The hotel is comfortable, clean, and when we went it was busy enough so that it wasn't boring, but not too crowded - it was easy to get a sunlounger by the lovely pool during the day. It is an appropriate hotel for families, couples and groups.
We went bed and breakfast...the breakfast wasn't great. This is one of the few downsides, but then I wasn't expecting it to be great and I'm not really a breakfast person so this didn't bother me too much. The selection is mostly bread with cold meats and yoghurt, though they might have added to this since I went. The cocktails are good and at a reasonable price, though the dinner I had there- although okay - wasn't fantastic, so I would recommend trying out different restaurants.
The view from our window was one of the best parts - definitely try and get a room with a balcony and a sea view. Although we couldn't see the sea that clearly, the view of the mountains and the rest of olu deniz was amazing in itself.
One of the few downsides is the music that is played fairly loudly throughout the day and into a bit of the night, though we didn't mind too much, and it may have been louder to us as our room looked out onto the bar area.I also kept hearing the hotel dogs for a few of the nights, which was pretty annoying.
You're not allowed to bring food from outside of the hotel back to your room, which is an annoying rule, although they don't really check up on this too much, so we just smuggled stuff in from our bags and hid them in our suitcases.
Location is good, just a ten/fifteen minute walk to the beach and the blue lagoon, close to the resort centre, and a short taxi ride to the buzzing Hisaronu if you want a change of scenery.
Overall I had a lovely time at this hotel and in olu deniz, it is a beautiful place. I would recommend going to the picturesque Butterfly Valley by boat if you get the chance.
