We spent a long weekend at The Saray recently and found it all to be very nice. There are three blocks of rooms nicely spread out in a garden area. The area around the pool is quite large and although the beds are all placed closely together there is plenty room to move them should you wish to. The small building ahead as you go through the gate of the hotel houses a reception/seating area at the front then when you go through to the back the breakfast area/ kichen is there to the left and to right is a bar and more seating overlooking the pool. This area was where most people chose to take breakfast. The breakfast was typically Turkish but perfectly adequate and always fresh. We didn't take any other meals there io I can't comment any further on the food.
We arrived about 4 am and we were greeted by Churchill who swiftly checked us in and took our luggage directly to our room, showing us the pool area on the way. Ours was a family room that would hold 3 although there was only 2 of us so there was ample space. I have to say had there been 3 of us it would have been a tight squeeze. The room was immaculate and the bathroom was gleaming. You only get clean towels every 3 days which had I been there longer wouldn't have suited me. Air conditioning and your safe were extras and we had to pay for the use of these in the morning. The air conditioning wasn't the best but for September temps in sufficed.
We had no problems with being checked for food and drink etc as I had read about in previous reviews. The only problem we encountered was when we checked out they insisted on going to check the mini bar in the room even tho' it was checked daily and we had never used it. It then transpired that it was classed as being used as I had bought a bottle coke at the pool bar and taken it to the room and put it in the fridge which meant I had used the mini bar??? Needless to say we did not pay for the use and they never forced the issue.
The hotel is in an excellent position to enjoy Hisaronu and to catch the dolmus to nearby villages and towns.
Would I use this hotel again? Yes but it wouldn't be my first choice in Hisaronu. We were also unfortunate in that we seemed to have a particularly unfriendly group of tourists staying at the hotel as most of them couldn't even be bothered to acknowledge a "good morning" at breakfast but that's not the hotels fault.
Also not sure if I would use this hotel if I had children as nothing much there for them except a small kids pool and a smallplaypark with some equipment that didn't look too safe - just an observation.
Also prices were very high from the pool bar for coke and water which may be why it's requested that you don't bring anything in. 2TL for a water that costs 29cents at the market and 8TL for a smallish bottle of Pepsi.
