We read a lot of reviews of GA before we booked and just don't understand the negative ones. Perhaps you reap what you sow but we found the staff to be be lovely, warm people who appear to work all hours.
The hotel itself is beautifully designed and set in lots of greenery and gardens. The pools were freezing but we did go out of season and in all honesty we needed the shock of the cold water every evening to wash away the heat of the day. In early October it was still 30+ degrees each day with beautiful clear skies.
The room was a little small but well looked after, and had a mini-bar which we left well alone. There's a sign at the entrance telling you not to bring food into the hotel but the in-house prices are ridiculous so a lot of 'smuggling' goes on. We were no exception but we were never challenged.
The food is delicious and the menu varied but don't expect entertainment after dinner as this appears to be a very tranquil hotel - most people seem to be in bed or out by 10pm.
Whether it's the season or the garden design there were few wasps - something that plagued us in our last stay in Hisaronu - though the mozzies are relentless.
If you hire a car you'll have to park in the street as there appears to be no hotel parking. Being off season this didn't bother us but I'd imagine in high season the half dozen or so spaces will be packed with taxis so you'd need to park up the road somewhere.
All told I'd recommend the hotel, praise the staff but warn you off Olu Deniz unless you love greed and commercialism, or have a hire car to escape the area. The lagoon that was once beautiful is over-populated by sun beds, water sports and tourists and the village has become a huge sprawl of hotels and shops rivalling any British town for size. A sad decline of a one lovely area.
