“Nice modern hotel, poor service and drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Modern hotel with nice big rooms, but service is bad, tended only to Germans. Alcohol cocktails are all unpalatable, bartenders only be rendered without thinking about the taste. In reception while I went for coffee disappeared my computer bag and no one even hotel meneger did not engage search and did not want to watch camera recordings. The beach was great with a view to the little island.

The hotel quality is fair. More a 4 star resort. The staff works very hard and is friendly. A tip in the restaurant is appreciated, you will get a better table, nicer wines and a smile.
Rooms are clean, not that big, but acceptable.

Not a lot to do outside the hotel. Some shopping on walking distance, but no bars or restaurants..

When it rains, they've got a problem! Most of the entertainment is outside, also the Bar is not "waterproof".

The very noisy Russians form the biggest problem in this resort! I do not want to jugde about all the Russian people, but when we were there, they acted very anti-social, trashy, and were very drunk in the evening, bothering other people...

The most shocking was that when my husband went to the toilet, in the evening, he was offered some kind of "service" by Russian girls.

A nice hotel, but attracts the wrong people..

We went this hotel in August 4th 2011 , I can speak Russian, and English, my husband only English. I found many times when I asked something hotel stuff in Russian they didn't always understand, but never had problems speaking English though, so if someone says go there if you Russian or German... completely disagree, and we also met plenty English people there and had fan. Also disagree if someone says only Pepsi soft drinks and no Coca cola products....it is no true , you can have as many as you can. Only what you need to pay are fresh juices and turkey coffee...besides this you get just other drinks and normal coffee ... And if you want nice bottle of wine with your dinner you have to pay as well...
About rooms.... nice and cleaned all the time, cleaning every day... no each second, as someone mentioned, fridge refill every day. The only thing , if you want nice view from your window, prepare to pay extra 50 dollars, but it worse it. And ask for room on the same level where reception, so you don't get frustrater with lift (quite busy). Don't forget to leave 1 dollar tip , which is nothing, but you will find nice surprise when you come back in hotel number after relaxing spending time on a beach.
Over all grate hotel.
Minus - cocktails are really bed ...

Room Tip: any room with see view, and don't worry about noise....It is holliday!!!!

I was so worried reading all the bad reviews for this hotel after me and my partner had booked it! PLEASE do not listen too them!i dont know what they are talking about! first of all yes we did notice there were not many english guests.....so what who goes to turkey to expect english people everywhere??! and the staff were more than helpful and the english they spoke was all they needed too to communicate.Our rooms were lovely and spacious with a great view of the pool / beach. They were cleaned every day of our weeks stay and fresh towels every day too! The food i could not fault there was so much too chose from from the buffet restaurant at breakfast and dinner and the lunch grill was amazing with so much variety! i was eating four meals a day and they were all different :-) The spa was so lovely and relaxing and the treatments very reasonable! The beach is a minute walk down from the hotels if that where you are given beach towels from the spa which they change for you when needed. The water is clear and the sea is lovely and warm, but me n my partner preffered to relax by the pool most days as is was lovely and hot! got to 40 degrees every day for a week (from 6th september 2011). I can highly reccomend the 'Manavgat waterfull trip' booked through your rep...amazing views and a lovely boat trip lunch, beach and market all in one! Overall i would definetly go here again for another relaxing holiday with guaranteed sunshine and great hotel!!! Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea / or pool view room

I read alot of reviews on this hotel before going and I was slighty apprehensious after reading them. Yes there are mainly German and Russian families on holiday here, and the staff speak very little English!! but by the same token they can get along which is more than I can say for ourselves and of most English people. We just don't do our bit to learn other languages and just expect to go abroad and everyone should speak our language!! so I went with this in mind and it was fine, the reception desk does have someone who speaks quite good English and for the rest of the hotel staff they do there best to understand. The guy in the spa spoke very good English when talking us through all the treatments they had and also in the little gift shop they also spoke fair amount. I found them all very helpful and very humerous, messing around taking my sons hat and sun glasses whilst serving drinks that kind of thing. Very polite always a hello and a smile. The food was in my eyes as a caterer myself, very good, plentiful and caterered for everyones needs. No complaints from the 4 of us and I have a fussy daughter but she ate very well. Yes there was certain foods tried during the week that did not appeal to our taste buds but there was plenty of choice so never had a bad meal/experience!!! drinks flowed all the time. The swimming pool is fantastic, I usually prefer the sea/beach but found this beach a bit to shingly so we did the pool everyday and it was never over crowded. This hotel is exceptionaly spotless inside and out, one of the best I have experienced. What I can make out there was not alot of entertainment in English, again catered for the Germans/Russians but cannot really comment on this as we were quite happy sitting in various bars having a few quiet drinks.But in all I can not say enough to praise this hotel as it was OUTSTANDING, we had a fabulous holiday. Infact my 13yr old daughter and 22yr old son want to go back next year.

Me and my partner went to this hotel in may and I was a bit worried as I could not find many reviews..I had NOTHING to worry about. This is one of the best hotels I have ever been to abroad. It was on the beach, close to the shops and Market but also quiet enough if you just wanted to sunbathe all day (which I did!!) this hotel had everything you could want. Reading other reviews I have no idea when people say there was no English speaking staff, everyone we spoke to could speak English. Admittedly there are a lot of Germans and Russians but they were never a problem. I would definitely 100% return and will book for 2012. The best holiday I've ever been on.
