I have just returned from a week at the White Hotel and have to say that I was very impressed! I had booked a single room with garden/pool view (as was travelling with a couple) but was given a double room to my delight. The room was very clean, freshly painted, new towels, fridge (stocked with drinks; water, cans, beer) and free air conditioning. The bed wasn't hard but then i'd prefer a firm bed to a marshmallow! The rate includes a traditional Turkish breakfast each day - bread, honey, cheese, eggs, olives, tomatoes etc which was very nice. There were also hot/cold drinks and cereal available.
The staff were very friendly and as mentioned previously there was a gardener on-site each day watering / tidying the mature gardens. The manager frequently came round handing out fresh (chilled) fruit, cold lemon drinks & hot snacks with no charge. (How nice is that?!)
The bar was open but very limited stock and no price list. There is no bar menu or restaurant on site however, we didn't find this a problem as the hotel is located a mere 15m off the main strip. There is a pool table next to the bar which is free to use.
The pool is gorgeous, a good size and completely spotless. The manager plays music from abt 10:30am to 6pm. Most of it is good (an eclectic mix of oldies and some new stuff) but it can get a little repetitive so my advice would be to maybe take a couple of CDs along with you and ask if he would play them for you? I'm sure he would, he is a very nice, accomodating person.
On my last day, my transfer wasn't until 6pm and the check-out time is advertised as 10:30am. I was fully prepared to move my stuff into my friends room, but instead I was allowed the full use of my room until i left (again with no extra charge). I was given a fond farewell and a large bottle of chilled water for the journey.
The only very minor drawback was that the shower was slow to drain (but I have long hair which usually causes drains to block up anyway) and the temperature fluctuated a little.
I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for lovely surroundings, friendly staff and a peaceful holiday.
