If it's ranked as a 5 stars hotel it would be due to it's landscape and design, but for it's management it can never be even a one star hotel. 1. On the check in we waited for at least an hour to get our rooms, which i thought it would be great, but a great disappointment was waiting for... More

There would be food spilt on the floor during breakfast and you would come for dinner and it would still be there. The plates were not all clean. The floor was always dirty and you could see bugs...

Everything was wonderful. Sea, nature... Otel has its own beach. We have spent very good time. Planing to come again. You should try Turkish food. Most importantly it is a family friendly hotel. club rooms are quite big and useful.
