Ridos located at the end of a picturesque valley seems like in the middle of nowhere. The resort has bungalows and a hotel building and built on a hot water spring all surrounded in a lush green forest.
The large lobby could have been decorated more welcomingThere is an as unatractive restaurant next door, large open space serving open buffet. I have not visited the hot bath so I can not commend on that. On the contrary the rooms of hotel section are clean well decorated with modern bathrooms . There are no AC in the rooms however we were there in mid july and it was cool, no need for AC and the high oxygen level form outside provides good sleeping condition only if you do not mind the sound of flowing stream in front of the hotel.
There is a top roof and bar again poor on decorationwise which seems unoperational and the open buffet served at nite had everything but like all others no taste to catch same goes for the breakfast buffet had local specialties but nothing to write home about. The terrace facing the forest where you can have your drinks and coffee is nice but beware a glass of wine is expensive, yet the quality was good. You may take a walk on the scenic main road which hardly a car passes.other than that there is no attraction unless you are visiting closeby Kackar daglari for trekking or skiing.
Overall for a one nite stay I would recommend the hotel , the basics are okey and I would think the establishment should be the best available in the area. But to see the area first the location is remote secondly you can only drive unless they provide service to and from the closest airport or city.
I am not in a position to commend on the hot bath side if you prefer to use the premises for that purpose.
