This really is a 5* hotel .The rooms are verry modern and clean. Staff is very good and friendly. Food is ok , not best but not worst .Drinks are verry good , cocktails are the best.The beach is not so good , the sand is not smooth . Around are a few bazars and if you walk around 10 minutes is a local super market
Great hotel for holiday, food is amazing, clean rooms, service ok. 4 is because some services are not available, but they are on web site. Cocktails are poor, there is not fresh juce at all, espresso is bad but turkish coffee is amazing. 😊 the beach is nice, but snack is just a burger and nothing else. Juices are very good, and coca cola, sprite and fanta are original 🤣 cakes are delicious.
There is nothing wrong with the Drita Hotel, it has many fine attributes but, that said I have stayed in much better hotels in the area at similar prices. The hotel seems to struggle with descriptions, on the Love Holidays website where we booked our stay the hotel is described as "Adults Only (Over 14) but we found not only many under 14's and many babies in push chairs but also facilities for very young children, I would estimate that more than half of the children staying at the hotel were under 14, this may be the fault of the booking agent Love Holidays but one which the hotel management need to take up with them because it is false advertising. We opted to pay for a suite, now a suite is described in most dictionary's and Wikipedia as being "A suite in a hotel or other public accommodation such as a cruise ship denotes, according to most dictionary definitions, connected rooms under one room number. ... In addition to one or more beds and bedroom fixtures, such "suites" include a living or sitting area, often equipped with a sofa bed" our 'suite' was the Penthouse Suite, the only suite in the hotel, we expected a bathroom, bedroom and lounge as a minimum, this is what we have receive at every other suite we have ever booked and quite often they have included a second bedroom and second bathroom, what we got was a large bedroom with coffee table 2 chairs plus a large bathroom with Jacuzzi bath.and long but slim balcony. The views are excellent and the room after the first days cleaning was excellent but appeared to have been only minimally prepared before our arrival. On the balcony there are two chairs and a small table but you have to squeeze past anyone already on the balcony to pass them. A large TV in the bedroom shows only Turkish and German TV no English/American channels whatsoever and no Russian channels despite the high % of Russian guests who just about outnumbered the German guests, we were the only English guests and we met people from Ukraine, Poland and Turkey. The bathroom was beautiful and large with overhead and hand held shower pieces over the Jacuzzi bath, a good sized sink and storage area for your bathroom necessities, towels were changed every day that you chose to have your room made up if required. There are limited bathroom accessories provided, shampoo and shower gel in large containers mounted on the wall. There is a fridge in the room which you can opt to have filled on a pay for what you use basis and a 1.5 ltr bottle of water are supplied for free daily. A word of advice, leave the cupboard door to the fridge open otherwise it is like having a heater in the room and the fridge itself gets very hot (not the fridge door the cupboard door of course). There is a good sized wardrobe in the room an plenty of drawers. There is a kettle in the work area under the TV but the socket that powers it is broken an unusable so we had to plug the kettle in where the bedside lamp should be, there are very few sockets in the room. Nice lighting in the suite giving the option of full lights or a mood making blue ceiling light and blue TV background light. Housekeeping are a delight and very efficient leaving nothing undone whenever you ask them to make up the room. Dining is totally adequate for "all inclusive" and each guest can use the 'al a carte' restaurant at least once as part of the all inclusive cost and more at an extra cost but again confusion over the meaning of 'a la carte' you actually get two choices but only one per night, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays you can have the set menu from the Mediterranean Menu which comprises Tomato Soup, Fish Sea Bass or Sea Bream, hot starter of Chinese Pastry OR Potato Croquets Cold Starter of Red Pepper Puree, Eggplant Salad, Hummus, Feta Cheese, Russian Salad, Green Salad and for Dessert, Stuffed Kadaifi or Kalburabasti. yes I found that confusing too and wandered which was main course and which were starters. On Mondays, Fridays and Sundays you have the Ottoman Menu with the Soup of the day, a main course described as 'Grill', hot starter of Pastry rolls or Mitite Meatball cold starter of Hummus Saksuka, Haydari (thick yoghurt with garlic and dill) Stuffed Pepper, Feta Cheese Mixed Salad and for dessert, Triliece Baklava. so there is basically no being given a menu and choosing from many options otherwise known as the cooked to order A La Carte menu. Meals in the main restaurant consist mainly of a huge salad option, Italian area offering Spaghetti Bolognaise and Pizza, or whole baked fish (not sure which fish but looked and served in the same way we serve Trout. or the other area which changes all the time but mainly consists of a couple goulash/stew style dishes made with beef, chicken or turkey a vegetable option and potatoes mashed or chipped. the usual mixture of Turkish style sweets and fresh fruit and a bread counter. Overall we were somewhat disappointed with the food options and were surprised not to see any Pork dishes, now before you say it, we understand that Turkey mostly a Muslim Nation but at other hotels we have enjoyed many Pork dishes including cooked to order Pork Chops. Nothing was actually 'cooked to order' though some food was cooked in front of you but then piled high in the serving dishes. at previous hotels in Turkey we have enjoyed at least one cooked to order option every mealtime. All meals seem to be orientated towards Turkish cuisine with a few German options and possibly a few Russian options. The Beach bar does serve burgers, chicken nuggets and chips during it's opening hours. We asked at reception to view a standard room at the request of some friends of our who were considering booking the hotel but were surprised at how small the rooms were, very small TV, simple double bed, small balcony and a very small bathroom that was a squeeze for one person and only had a walk in shower not the bath we had in our room, it was again a squeeze past the bed to the balcony. The pool is small but because of the closeness of the beach totally adequate for the guests and used mostly by children when we were there with the obvious attraction for them of the slide. There is also an indoor pool and many other facilities listed on their website such as extra cost services like massage and hamam. The animation team provide a whole host of activities but the disco is 100% Turkish music which quite surprised us since English speaking Countries produce so much music and even other language Nations often produce music in English. We were taken to the Summer Garden disco in Alanya (at extra cost) which played all Western music and was amazing. All areas in the hotel are tastefully decorated and immaculately clean and the outside area is also clean and beautifully kept. Staff are really friendly, efficient and eager to help, good location about 14km outside the main town of Alanya with good transport links but close to many shops including souvenir shops, clothes shops and supermarkets/chemists. The beach is semi private, anyone can pass through it but the sunbeds and bar are for residents only and part of the all inclusive facilities, close by there is a public park with free exercise facilities, juice bar and in 50 yds in the other direction you can hire jet skis, go parasailing or on the banana boat.…
Great place, awesome atractions and awesome people. Animators were with us all the time and gave us opportunity to spend time active. Greetings to Mira, Goko, Pikachu and Roma. Great food and service :)
At the drita at the moment on two week stay on my second week now hotel is spotless very friendly and welcoming staff meals are very good I'm a fussy eater but I always find something nice to eat the only down side is the entertainment it needs improvement it would also help if there was a notice board to say what was on instead of just time but apart from that myself husband will be back
