Stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks.
We had booked 2 rooms, one for four people and the other for two as I'd gone with my brother and nephew but was given two rooms of three and they wouldn't change us to another room so my son had to sleep in with my brother and nephew.
As other reviews say it is tired and old fashioned but clean.
Some of the staff were friendly but the two girls behind reception were awful and nasty. They are very strict on not taking food into rooms. They took food off you but gave it back if you asked.
The women made my 14 year old daughter go out of the hotel grounds to eat a bag of crisps that they didn't sell in the hotel, she's a fussy eater and didn't like what they sold. As we were buying ice cream and drinks from the bar I found this very petty as I've stayed in turkey before and staff usually turn a blind eye to the odd bit of food being taken into rooms as long as your buying from them too. I'd describe the staff as friendlyish but not fun.
We didn't eat much in the hotel because of their pettiness but breakfast was good and the odd meal we did have was very nice. Bar prices were a bit on the pricey side so people go next door to the supermarket to buy water and ice creams at less than half the price of the hotel.
We were on the 4th floor and didn't have towels changed for the first 4 days but after making a complaint they were changed every other day. People who were staying on lower floors said they had theirs changed everyday so maybe the cleaners ran out of time.
The owners of the hotel were constantly watching staff and you could feel the tension.
The pool seemed clean enough but my son ended up with an ear infection which the doctor said was probably caused from bacteria from the pool. Women were allowed to bathe topless by the pool which is ok but not in a family hotel.
The hotel is located about a mile from the beach but is quite a pleasant walk with lots of bars and shops on the way. The bus stop is outside the hotel and the most it costs is 2 lira each to go anywhere.
I wouldn't stay at this hotel again.
