“Nice hotel good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the hotel for 8 nights. Location is superb, 2 mins from Strip and far enough so you can't hear the music.
Hotel is nice with a nice big pool, table tennis, pool table.
Rooms are a good size. We asked for a double bed and got it. Rooms are basic had to pay extra for air con 80 tl for the week. Would of been nice to have a small fridge in the room. Rooms are cleaned daily.
One thing I don't like about the hotel is that to order food or drink you have to pay using a room card as the bar does not accept money . You pay the balance off at the end of the week at reception which Is dangerous as you might have a shock bill at the end. Next time well look for another hotel for the price we paid for blue lagoon which has the little extra touches.

Our request via Thomas Cook for a high floor room had not got through to the hotel. We arrived after 1am so it was too late to do anything about it, but we succeeded in moving after one night. Our second room was better all round, facing over the Blue Lagoon's pool area rather than outwards where we had been subjected to noisy entertainment from a neighbouring hotel.

Rooms were in good condition and bathrooms newly refurbished, with excellent showers. Very clean, but bedding was a bit small for the bed!

Breakfast was plentiful with some different options on different days (eg. pancakes). We were half board but ate in a couple of nights, for the Turkish night and the steak night. Both were "eat all you can" buffet style and very good.

Food and drink consumed at the hotel goes on your tab. The system for this seemed disorganised but they did get our bill right at the end.

Air con was free (at least on a Thomas Cook package) and worked well, and we were glad of it in May.

A lot of arrivals and departures are during the night, so inevitably there is some disturbance from this. We had a late departure ourselves so paid £20 to keep our room until 5pm.

We went to Tlos (remains and rock tombs) and Saklikent (gorge) with Guide Tours whose office is on the main road parallel to the strip (the road the dolmuses run up and down) - excellent, informative guide (Mehmet), so we recommend this. We chose it because they were using a small air-conditioned minibus rather than jeeps. Plenty of cheap boat trips run from the resort.

Our favourite place to eat was Kumsal Pide - down to the sea front, turn left, and continue almost to the end. (Pide is Turkish style pizza). Good value and quieter than places on the strip.

Room Tip: Better to have a room facing inwards across the Blue Lagoon's own pool. Outward facing rooms ove...

Me and my girlfriend recently returned from a 7 day holiday in Oludeniz, Turkey where we stayed at The Blue Lagoon Hotel on a B&B basis, here’s our views on the hotel…

The hotel is situated just one block behind the main strip of bars/restaurants/shops that leads toward the lovely beach front of Oludeniz, it was an ideal location for us, as it wasn’t right in the middle of the busy part but also not too far out of the way. I’d estimate its about a 10 minute walk from the hotel to the beach front.

The hotel room we stayed in was located on the ground floor (#120), initially I was disappointed as this meant we had no balcony and the view from our small ‘terrace’ was of a wall!
However throughout the week, this became less of an issue as we realised that because our block was facing away from the bar area, it allowed us bit more privacy, an looking at some of the other rooms I imagine they may have had to deal with noise-issues from the bar area.
Inside our room, it was on the small side, but that wasn’t really a problem for us, more importantly it was cleaned/fresh towels/bed changed everyday.

As we had our accommodation booked through Thomas Cook, it meant we had free air conditioning, which was good and much needed as the weather in Oludeniz was nice and hot! (early June 25-33 degrees celsius)

There were safety deposit boxes located at reception which cost 25TL (about £9) for a weeks use.

The reception staff were helpful whenever we asked for assistance or information, the bar staff were less helpful and generally came across as being fed-up!

The pool was my favourite part of the hotel complex, there was a nice chilled-out atmosphere around the pool throughout the day and the water wasn’t too cold when dipping in to cool-off! There was a lovely view from the pool area of the mountains above and there where no problems with getting a sun-lounger, just put a towel down in the morning! (Maybe in the busier part of the summer season this could be an issue?)

As we stayed B&B, the only food we eat at the hotel was breakfast, which we ended up doing 3 out of the 7 days, this consisted of a variety of continental options - cereal/toast/fruit/eggs/yogurts etc.
On one of the days there was a chef making omelettes, I don’t know if that’s only available on certain days?
Also, one of the surlier members of staff (who only seemed to crack a smile for single women!) kindly informed us at that if we wanted orange juice we had to pay an extra 4TL, we hadn’t even asked for it!
I would say that unless you are staying all-inclusive; try to avoid buying drinks at the hotel, 8TL for a glass of coke (about £3), rip-off! The most expensive beer I bought on the holiday didn’t cost as much as that.
And as mentioned in previous reviews there’s a payment system of things being charged to a card that you are issued, I would advise to pay that off daily, as I would imagine that things could expensively build-up if you let it run over the course of your stay.

In conclusion, if you are looking for a good clean hotel with a nice pool and good location, basically a good ‘base’ for your holiday than I would recommend The Blue Lagoon Hotel.

Oludeniz is a lovely resort with an amazing sea/beach, lovely views, nice people, a great variety of bars/restaurants; me and my girlfriend really enjoyed it there!

I have met friends in the bar at blue lagoon for drinks and found the staff to be very friendly Mustafa,bilal and baram and on my first visit my friends were running late the reception staff ogun and kubilay were so friendly and chatty and kept me entertained whilst waiting for my friend .
From what I have seen of the hotel I would like to stay here.

The hotel os smaller than many, consisting of several two-story blocks arranged around the pool; there are 78 rooms in all. Our standard room was clean and well lit, with a small balcony and excellent air-conditioning. there is a good variety of food, both English and Turkish, available all day. The restaurant is open plan but completely sheltered from the sun (and rain, though we had none) and is located beside the pool. The bar is immediately next to the restaurant, and serves a very wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks at reasonable prices; a little cheaper than many of the other bars in the town. I found the staff to be uniformly friendly and helpful; I did not experience any rudeness at any time. There is music playing during the day in the pool area, but it stops before midnight. Both B&B and half-board are available. There are a vast number of restaurants between the hotel and the see, a distance of some 500 yards. There are many excursions available, including boat and coach trips, and paragliding in tandem with an experienced pilot is offered. I recommend, however, that trips are booked directly with the operators, as Thomas Cook offer them at inflated prices. For example we took a 2-day trip to Ephesus, for which we paid £55 per person. Thomas Cook offered the same trip for £85 per person!

Room Tip: While all rooms are close to the pool area, some face away from it and the music, which is not loud...

The hotel was very clean though basic, we had a superior room so not sure about standard rooms. Pool was excellent,well maintained and we spent a lot of time around it. Food was average but always something there to eat so you wouldn't starve. Unfortunately our main complaint was the rudeness of the staff ,mainly the bar staff. I got to the stage of not even wanting to order coffee or cold drinks. They always had a comment to make instead of just serving. I think George or the management need to take their staff on a Customer Care Course. Sorry to be negative but it's as truthful as I can be. Turkey is a beautiful country but they must not take their tourists for granted.
