let me first state the following is a condensed list of complaints . this hotel is primerally for the turkish holiday makers and not sutible for them to be honest. the good was the shower , allways hot. the beer always cold. thats about it . 1) There was no Sports & Entertainment in the hotel as specified in the brochure. There was a dart board with no darts and a table tennis table with no bats or Ping-Pong ball. 2) The Bar closed at 11pm with no option to buy alcohol. 3) choices of alcohol were limited to just 4. 4) Food was inedible and there was very little choice. The chef was in fact a butcher by trade and often served up the same items for days in a row, even the chicken bones from people’s plates were reused. (DISCUSTING). He was dressed in jeans and a t-shirt not like the photo online. The choice at breakfast was boiled eggs or scrambled ( Gray and burnt) over fried onion rings ( not golden in colour but dark brown) over cooked chips ! and these items were cold as no heating was applied to the serving platters. cold food wass not on cold plates or covered ( well only with flys). lunch and dinner consiste of chicken cooked and doild many different ways. what was left at lunch you hade again for dinner. only 1 day in two weeks did it change and we had liver . and on occasion kofta. 5) Cleaning service was inadequate with our bedding only being changed once. ( our last day) no clean towels. Only our floor was swept and mopped to clean up the ants and the bin emptied. 6) We had a problem with ants in our room DAILY (having to buy spray to kill them) 7) The mattress was cheap and very uncomfortable (we had to buy an inflatable pool Lilo to sleep on. 8) The toilet was disgusting and never cleaned. 9) The door to our room was left open and unlocked by the cleaners. 10) The door to our room is made up of frosted glass and leaves no privacy. 11) The play area is nothing like the photos in your online photos. no bean bags and dirty broken slide. PLEASE take no notice of the photos on the internet they are from before 2022 twhen the hotel was run by different staff and owner. 12) only 25 sunbeds for approx. 60 - 100 guests. and 17 of these were broken. 13) The awning that provided shade in the eating area was broken and provided no shade at all. 14) the tv / satellite only worked the second week . 15) The pool is only one depth and not suitable for a novice or unsure swimmer. 16) The pool side is very slippery with no mats to provide grip. This caused many accidents with children and adults alike. The ladder to the pool was unsecure and loose, as were the railings around the baby pool area. 17) The sunbed cushions were yellow and stained. never washed properly. 18) The table cloths were never changed in the weeks we were there. and the place mats are not like the photo you provide online. 19) The landscaped gardens you advertise are far from landscaped and the room with a garden view we booked looked out onto the kitchen area. 20) The pool is not just for the guests at the hotel but by the children of the hotel staff. All they did was jump in the pool constantly and as the sun beds where next tothe pool we got wet our phones got wet and they didnt care. 21) Building works were being carried out in two buildings front and rear of the hotel around the pool area. Diggers and noisy machinery being used throughout the day. This list could go on but I feel I have addressed some of the issues. I would like to that Philis our turkish friends for standing up the the chef and telling him how it was ..

Being an Ex Expat living around Bodrum, Turkey and having had holidays all around Turkey for 18 years, this Hotel has to be the worst we have ever stayed in. We went off previous reviews on this hotel, it has been taken over since pre covid times and all new staff have been brought in. The easiest way to review this hotel is by using a Pros and Cons List as this hotel is in deep trouble with most of the nationalities staying there at the moment, including the majority of customers there who are Turkish. PROS: The Weather, 10 mins walk to the Sea Front, Restaurants, Gift Shops and Supermarkets ( which you Will Need), Free Aircon and Safe (behind reception), English Speaking Receptionist and Barman and plenty of Hot Water for your shower. Friendly Turkish Holiday Makers. Plenty bottled water, Coffee, Turkish tea and Powered juice and water ( Cordial) CONS: In the middle of nowhere, Zero Entertainment, Rooms very, very basic and we were in a modern room!! Tv has no signal, bedding changed once in a fortnight (even after asking reception numerous times) as were the towels, even after throwing them on the bathroom floor!! Toilet seat broken, toilet itself ( don't go there..disgusting) Our room was invaded every day by ants, nothing was done even after complaining, we had to buy ant killer and kill them every evening when we returned from the pool. Cleaning...what cleaning...the single tiny bin got emptied in the bathroom and the dead ants swept up..but that was it!! Mattress was the worst, I even got a bruise off a spring after the first night. Pillows are disgusting no pillow protectors. Food.... Disgraceful, the only reason no one was ill when we were there was because no one ate it as it was recycled day in day out not just lunch to dinner. No choice whatsoever, I as many Turkish, Russian and the other two English ladies just ate Tomatoes, Cucumber, Bread and Dip for Lunch and Dinner, Breakfast is Burnt, grey scrambled Egg, Boiled Egg, Cheese, Tomatoes, Olives, There is cereal and milk but we left that for the children. When I say this is breakfast, it is every day. The Turkish families had the so called chef brought out to them to speak to as they were disgusted and called the food Peasant Food and told us they were ashamed to be Turkish as us being English would think that this was good Turkish food and it is not. It came to light from the Turkish people that the chef was in fact a Butcher from Izmir, not even a cook never mind a chef. Needless to say, there is no chance you will put weight on at this hotel. Bar/Drinks.... 1 type of Vodka, 1 type of Gin, 1 type of Raki, 1 type of Red and White Wine and Efes. Soft drinks Cola, Tonic and a type of Sprite which isn't sprite. Wine tastes like sherry. No pure fruit juices, just powdered juice and water for vodka and orange or gin and orange. Bar closes at 11 p.m sharp and closes, you cannot buy drinks after this. Cats...not an issue as such for us as we have two at home, but these cats are emaciated, ill with cat flu, have awful.wounds and are crying out for food and water. The amount of food that goes untouched would feed these cats out of the back of the kitchen and they wouldn't need to pester guests for food at every sitting, it truly is heart breaking. The Swimming Pool: A small baby pool and a 1.5m deep pool.attached to it. Be aware there is not a shallow end, it is the same depth right across, so older children either sat on the sunbeds or on the side or the parents bought arm bands as it was too dangerous to leave them play. The area around the pool is so slippy there are no matts and 4/5 adults and children a day slipped around the pool as it was so wet and slippy on the tiles.The tiles in the baby pool aren't even swimming pool tiles they are bog standard wall, floor tiles and these are cracked. Frosted apartment door, so stay clothed at all times lol Sunbeds.. 25 of these not even enough for half the hotel and the majority of these are broken. This hotel is the Fawlty Towers of Turkish hotels, how it can go so wrong after being so right is beyond me. Needless to say we won't be back and will be letting other Travel Companies know how very dire this hotel has now become.

Just got home from this hotel this morning. It is definitely on the small side but with a big welcome. It isn`t 5 star but doesn't pretend to be. What it does do it however it tends to do very very well. We were a day late checking in (due to Easyjet cancelling the flight we had sat on for 4 hours) so arrived the following afternoon rather than the previous night. Manager was instantly welcoming and had said he had tried to call out travel agent to see if there was an issue (without much luck) and instantly presented us with 2 bottles of chilled water before we had got past reception - which was a lovely touch. Anyway - breaking the hotel down into sections: LAYOUT: Think of basically a rectangle, reception at the front, 2 blocks of rooms either side , and then on the back right hand corner the dining area, swimming pool at the back in the middle, and bar back left. ROOMS: Reasonable sized room - big enough to put luggage down and still leave plenty of room either side. Air conditioning was included and very effective which could prove to be very welcoming. Shower was incredibly powerful - it did have a tendency to cool down after a couple of minutes when there was demand for hot water. But No one minds a lukewarm shower in 30 degrees heat! There was a sometimes strong sulphur smell in the bathroom - however that is beyond the control of the hotel. Small balcony - you could stand on it, but no room for table or chairs, but handy enough for drying towels. RESTAURAUNT Attentive staff. Buffet style selection - could normally find something to eat, but selection was a bit limited. Better to eat out as a rule, but there if you need it. However did find it wasn`t the best quality, but what you would expect for the price. This isn`t a moan, just ensuring people aren't expecting 5 star food at 2 star prices. BAR It had beer! That is always a good start ! Especially if it is cold plentiful and drinkable - which it was. Also had wines , some spirits (Vodka, Raiki, Gin and some more - but not a spirit drinker). Head barman especially never seemed to take a day off! Open from about 10 in the morning until 11pm at night. Sometimes if my beer was running low a new glass would magically appear on the table! There is a seating area with about 6 tables and chairs - under a tree that did drop its flowers on you, which meant the barman was always busy sweeping the leaves off the table. But the tree looked pretty, and provided some shelter from the sun if you needed it, and some tables where the sun would shine through. I have been to some all inclusive hotels where they tried to limit the amount you could drink by creating queues and small glasses - non of those problems here. At last orders for example no issues if you want to "park" a few drinks to carry on with! POOL: Deep pool all the way round. Not so deep you couldn`t touch the bottom if you are a reasonable height (so if you are 6 foot no issues, if you are under 5`8 you may struggle), and not deep enough to dive deep into it, but fine to jump in. Good temperature as well. One set of slightly rickety steps to exit (but safe) and also a "seating" ledge as well as a smaller paddling pool style extension. LOCATION: On a quiet road. There was a shop within 5 minutes walk and the beachfront within 10 minutes walk. Near enough the mosque you can hear the 5 times daily call to prayer (but no so near it was intrusive). Also about 15 minutes walk to the pharmacy if you need it WIFI: It had it! Not the strongest signal in the rooms - generally fine in the bar and dining room area. Wouldn`t be fast enough to stream, but for normal use was fine. STAFF: The most welcoming staff you will find anywhere - couldn`t do enough for you - especially the manager and head barman. They will try and give you a later checkout if you have a later departure as long as their occupancy allows it (And no charge for this). The staff are the reason I've rated this 5 stars. OVERALL: Google describe this as an "unfussy" hotel - which is accurate, but had everything you need for a break in the sun. Of course you can find hotels with better facilities, and those on the beach, but you will pay extra for these. With this hotel you get what you pay for and have it topped off with super staff. If you are the type of person who takes photos behind the toilet to post on tripadvisor, then probably best booking elsewhere. If your requirements are clean, a bed, a bar and sun and a pool though, go ahead and book. ORTAKENT: Plenty of bars and restaurants along the seafront - most attached to hotels, but no issues to eat or drink there. Not everywhere has English menus, so you may end up guessing. Not everywhere will have English speakers but can normally get by. Quietish resort but lovely sea. May be an idea to take jelly shoes or similar as the beach can be quite pebbly. Prices are very reasonable, but duty free purchases best made in resort as considerably more expensive in the airport (drink prices in the airport also very expensive - 9 euros for a small bottle of beer - in resort you will pay about 60 Turkish lira for a large pint bottle - which is about £3.50). Watersports are available but these can be expensive.

Stayed at Kriss Hotel in August 2020, very attentive staff, nice location (just 5-7 min walk to the sea), nice, green, clean and well-attended inside, the room were regularly cleaned and towels changed, food was as good as it can be expected in a 3 star hotel, we always found what to eat. Wifi was quite good, could even conduct one zoom session for work. The staff was very kind to offer a free room closer to wifi router (located in the restaurant) for that call. Keep in mind that as of Aug 2020 the hotel has an agreement with one of the beaches, where you can pay something around 2 euro and use the beach all day. Otherwise, it is also possible to use other beaches if you buy anything there, even just water. Generally, the hotel left a really nice impression, so highly recommended!

Accentuating the positives strongly..... This hotel is like an oasis of calm, very green, beautiful shrubs, shady trees and not many people around. Ok maybe being the last fortnight of the season it’s quieter but some how I don't think even at peak season it gets overly busy. Certainly you manage to get a sense of being a special guest and soon become acquainted with the lovely staff. The swimming pool is just right in every way, even the rickety step ladder! A seating semicircle to catch the sun and chat. The bar is poolside and has a somewhat limited stock of spirits i.e. Gin or vodka. The beer is nice and a selection of pepsi, orange juice etc too. You can help yourself to Turkish tea, coffee, cappuccino and fruit juices and there is a water chiller to refill your bottles. The wifi is free, a bit slow but then you're on holiday and should be chilling out. Similarly the tv channels are limited with NO english programmes. The hotel is home to several cats and their broods of kittens of varying ages. They're semi friendly and always grateful for a meaty titbit and a comfy lap. Our room was in the new block, good sized with a fairly large bathroom with amazing shower. We had superb air-conditioning and a small fridge. Good firm beds, lots of cupboard and hanging space too. It’s in a little side road, so no busy traffic noises, only the sound of the call to prayer from the mosque at the end of the road. Shops are five minutes walk away selling whatever you might need. Our fellow guests tended to be Russian, Czech, Turkish or Brits, but we were in the minority. Don't expect chips with anything other than a very rare breakfast. The food is generally Turkish fayre and for the most part tasty. Try the curried cabbage with sultanas, or the lamb koftas or the varieties of lentils. No tough meat, only tender chicken, turkey, lamb. There is occasionally fish, I don't choose to eat it but heard it well described. Having written this part during week one, I would say that there is repetition. Our room was cleaned everyday with fresh towels and bedding as necessary. Okay, so having accentuated the positives, I'll move on to the few negatives. I would say first and foremost that these did not spoil our holiday in anyway, they are just observations and comments on areas to improve. Some chipped/cracked cups/some broken sunbeds, a limited choice at the bar - thats all i can be negative about. Bring mosquito repellant! The little darlings can have good appetites. Try Avon Skin so Soft original, or lemon cologne mixed with baby oil. The pool surrounds are very slippery, one or two folk slithered a bit. Meeting many Turkish tourists and the hotel staff is a pleasure in itself. Their kindnesses like sharing figs or nuts or other titbits bought during the day, or including us in a champagne toast for a birthday has been so nice. Consideration for others too, helpful even, as I have some limited mobility. We loved Kriss Hotel and would return happily! Thanks for having us!

This is a small hotel with a staff of around 15 people and you will get to know most of them during your visit. They are all really nice, helpful and friendly - nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the beach that has many excellent & varied restaurants. Rooms are cleaned daily, food is excellent & varied. The pool area is cleaned many times during the day and the pool is spotless.

Where to start? First and foremost we loved this hotel. It’s the Turkey we fell in love with 25 years ago, however, if you are looking for an international hotel with luxury rooms and vast choices at mealtime this is not the hotel for you. As advised by previous reviews this hotel is tired and desperate for a cash injection but for me this is outweighed by the overwhelming genuine warmth, friendliness and interest all the staff have for the visitors. You quickly become part of their family and you cannot help but love it! The food is wholesome Turkish and mostly homemade, the drinks although having a limited range are certainly not short measures. The rooms are cleaned daily as is all the hotel with fresh towels every day and a bed change every other day. The rooms are a little on the small side and basic Turkish style but there is plenty of wardrobe and drawer space. We asked for extra pillows and coat hangers and they arrived within a few minutes. Whatever you need if you ask they will try their best to oblige. It’s a 5 minute walk to the beachfront of Yashi which is a quiet family resort with a few shops , bars and restaurants. Buses (dolmus) leave the beachfront to Bodrum and connections to the rest of the peninsula about every 15 minutes. For my complaints – some of the sunbeds are broken resulting you cannot always sit up and the sun parasols cannot be moved to offer more shade which is certainly needed as Turkey is a hot country. Would I stay here again…………without hesitation and intend to do so soon to continue my Turkish language lessons with Semsettin.
