The main reason we chose this hotel was because of the 4* reviews on trip advisor but I'm sorry to say it did not live up to our expectations. We stayed at Delta Beach Yalikavak the fist week in October. Hotel itself is lovely but not 5star standard, maybe 3 star at best. However, there are several areas that require improvement.
Food is repetitive, bland, cool and very often cold. Not the standard you expect from a 5 Star Hotel especially when you are mainly talking about chicken and turkey which was the staple diet for a week.
The tables were not always reset between guests. Therefore if you were not the first guest at the table there was no cutlery or glasses. Guests had to pick up cutlery for themselves! You didn't get fresh cutlery between courses either. The à la carte restaurant was a farce. There was no choice of menu. It was a set menu. This food looked appetising but was also cold and bland. We sent our main course back to be heated up as it was stone cold. There was one waiter rushing around serving fifteen tables yet there were four chief’s standing around chatting and another sitting at the table next to us chatting and eating a meal. This is not the standard you would expect from 5 Star Hotel.
There were only two shows in the entire week. The quality of these shows would not have been out of place at a UK holiday camp. Cringingly awful. One good thing was they lasted for less than an hour. The manager said it was too cold in the evening to do shows. I also find it very concerning that Thomas Cook have ‘upgraded’ this hotel to a Style Hotel for 2011 where you have ‘hand picked’ this hotel for its ‘consistently good’ quality of service, choice of dining and high quality of entertainment. Waiters and Bar staff were very unhelpful and went about their job with a grudging attitude.
Sadly, following our experience at Delta Beach I feel obliged to warn people away from this resort, which is a pity as the resort location is very favourable.
