The hotel has a rustic charm with cobbled walkways and lots of wrought iron and stone walls with pretty gardens and magnificent views, so quiet and relaxing, just stunning. It is set amongst the mountains with many beautiful views in a quiet area surrounded by villas and up a big hill. The views make it worth the walk up the hill! We did it with 2 kids and 2 babies in prams plenty of days so it can be done if you're reasonably fit. It's not as bad as it looks when you're walking it. Loads of taxis about if you don't feel like walking it.
Great pool for kids and they loved the slide as did my husband and I! Small pool for younger kids is fine and adult only pool for complete relaxation or you could pop into the small spa for a treatment.
The restaurant's large glass doors opened up onto the pool area and you could also sit outside. The bar was beside it with pool and mountain views. Drinks expensive compared to other places and it was easy to run up a bill on the hotel card system so keep paying it off. Cocktails were 12.50TL so still much cheaper than home. The cans of juice at the shop were 3.50TL and magnum ice creams 4.80TL (but everywhere seemed to make their money on cold drinks and ice lollys). The bar was a bit slow too so be patient. The food was amazing, mainly Turkish and really delicious, freshly cooked and tasty. Loads of delicious salads, BBQ every night and freshly cooked pancakes or eggs by a chef at breakfast. As like all buffet restaurants there were times where lots of people came at once and there would be ques/run out of things but that's what happens anywhere. The staff were so nice, always happy to get you things, just ask nicely. If something ran out they would go and replenish it straight away. You can always go for an early breakfast or a late dinner to avoid the rush. They have 2 nights entertainment a week that was ok, we have twin babies (18 months)so didn't care about entertainment as they were off to bed. Our 2 older boys (age 6 and 8) made lots of friends and played away with the other kids there. All the guests we spoke to were lovely and friendly and always took time to chat away. The kids never got bored even though it's not a huge place. There is a small baby swing park behind the bar with little tikes equipment. At the bar there's pool, table tennis, air hockey, table football. Behind the adult pool is a tennis court if you stand the heat!
We got connecting rooms over looking the adult pool and mountain, simply decorated but nice enough and plenty of space considering there was 6 of us, 2 cots and 2 prams! The air con is free and is essential and the mini bar is a nice touch for a 3 star hotel and great to have cold drinks at hand. Also when we arrived late there was a man who took our luggage and showed us to our room and again when we left helped us with our luggage onto the bus.
There are a few small bars, restaurants within 5 minute walk down hill (evita bar has happy hour 6pm - 9pm and has half price drinks and free pool and the supermarket at the cross road is cheaper than Azda at the bottom of the hill and sells loads of things) or a 10 min walk right down the hill to the main road and then 15 minutes to Hisaronu that is packed with bars, restaurants and nightlife go karts and small funfair. 10tl to get taxi back approx £3. There is a free bus to a private beach at the lagoon that has it's own restaurant, bar, sun beds, boats etc. The water is shallow and there is sand. They make their money back as you're there all day spending money there. From there you can walk to the other beach in approx 20 minutes. Oludeniz is lovely too and the beach is beautiful although it has small stones and not sand. A taxi was 23TL and your ears pop going back up the mountain! Loads of places selling excursions in Hisaronu and Oludeniz and easy to get the price down so do try! We did a boat trip that was amazing, the sea is so beautiful and lots of fun with a great team working on the boat(take plenty of cash for drinks/ice lollys/photos. We also done the tandem paragliding which was superb, what a view! Felt very safe and not nervous at all. Both were booked with Pegus on the beach at Oludeniz. All the Turkish people were so friendly no hard sell anywhere but I later heard that by law they cannot hassle tourists.
Overall I give this hotel 8/10. We had a great holiday and hope you do too!
