“Unbearable Noise, Unhelpful Staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

There is a Karaoke Bar across the street that blasts a huge racket till 1 am. Even inside our room with the windows closed, the noise was incredible - we were dead tired, but sleep was impossible before the bar closed. The rooms smell of smoke. The staff were unhelpful to the point of rude. My wife left a dress in the closet when we left (our mistake to be sure), but when we called to try to get it back, it was gone - presumably someone on the cleaning staff has it. Only the daytime clerk has a solid command of English. I should probably admit that Didim is the only place in Turkey I didn't really like: it is a honky tonk town with no charm and lots of British pubs but no decent restaurants in the beach area. I suppose if you smoke and plan on staying out at bars till 1 AM, you might fit right in and some of the rooms have a very good view of the ocean and beach. I would definitely go further down the beach to a quieter hotel if I had any choice, but if you must stay here, try to get a room high up and facing directly towards the ocean, and as far as possible from the bars.

Room Tip: As high up as possible and straight out to the sea, away from bars (if you plan to sleep before 1AM)

just returned from a very spontaneous trip to altinkum and the orion hotel. which i cannot fault in any way. there was no noise as depicted from a previous visitor as they have put in new double glazing. the food was excellent, the staff were great including the waiters and reception who made me feel at ease from the minute i got there which was the midle of the night till i left. there was no entertainment but i believe that it is starting this week as it was not very busy. the hotel is right on the beach and having your dinner outside right on the sand was pure luxurios. i would recommend this hotel over and over again as i couldnt fault it. if you request room number 8 you will get a seaview that was one of my lessons for next time. book up and njoy i did i really did. thanks to everyone of the staff even the owners who kept an eye on things for an unforgettable holiday
