“It is very good hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Hello dears in a new review , I have been there from2nd to 6th of July With previously reservation ,,,,it is really Avery good hotel to stay there first to count the good things , they have nice rooms for good affordable rates it is very cheaper than other near by hotels with same facilities ,, very good deliciouse food , over crowded , we got our room it was clean but no soaps or shower gels and we asked for three times till the bring us ,, they don't Change the towels for thee days and they said it is one of our roles , there was no Internet in the rooms you should go down the lobby to have slow access to the Internet in a very hot weather ...... Another very bad thing is that they have very slow moving elevators you should wait for long time to got an access to your room they have only two small slow panoramic and another one small near reception ,,,, other wise the reception people were good guys helpful ...there was another thing they are too economic in electricity provide the room only with one card and whenever you opened the balcony the air conditioning shut down at once ....it some what far from tourist points because you will go out of alanya for 10 ,,,or 15 km Thanks

Where should I start.. Right !
1. The hotel is 2 hours away from the airport which is in Antalya , the hotel is in Alanya NOT Antalya where the airport is.
2. The food in the canteen at the hotel is disgusting and the smell is horrible I couldnt even finish my plate. My holiday was all inclusive but I went out to eat everyday so I spent more money.
3. The staff at the hotel cant even speak English and are not helpful at all
4. This hotel is not a 5* I would say its a 2*
5. The sand at the beach looks like mud , the beach has lots of rocks I could bearly go to the water, I cut my foot when I stepped into the water (really uncomfortable)
6.I went to happy elegant for 7 days with my boyfriend and I could say this is definately a hotel I wouldnt recommend to anyone. Please think about it and read all the reviews before you book this holiday , Everything stated on these reviews is true!. Listen to someone from experience.

Where to start?We arrived at the hotel on May 31.(2013),first, we had to twice change room,third attempt was successful and we got a room that... is great,fourth floor, room 1414cleaned the room every day, but because we gave a tip.I ignored the negative comments but I should have read more carefully..First, it is a hotel former SSSR-a...only hear the Russian language and no more...the hotel staff has educated and speak little English..first ,restaurant:like a canteen ruined factories,if you not come first,'ll stay hungry..food is typically Turkish, no meat,only lots of vegetables,cakes gelatin with water in a variety of colors,fruit, only oranges and some of their green plums..Pool is small for such a hotel and so many guests,and in it also slides...so enjoy!The beach is ok, but the big waves you can not swim..to Alanya you can go with dolmus,but....I wrote this very real,we have paid all of 500EUR per person for 10 days...exhibitionist who is... welcome!! I certainly, never again!!!

Room Tip: take a room on the side of the hotel overlooking the main entrance near the sea to the upper floor...

hotel is far away from an airoport and it is not close to the center of the city,but you have dolmus(bus) and it takes you to the centar for a small amount of money. Staff was ok. Food was ok too,nothing special. Beach is not bad but the sea can cause you a problem,because there are huge waves,and that really makes swimming not comfortable. Pool is clean,but crowded.
If your holidays in the past were in apartments or in low budget hotels,this would be fine for you. But if you are used to luxury hotels,then this is not a hotel for you

This is a 2* hotel. They cheat on guests and the personnel waits only to be paid to be nice. Every year the travel company say that the hotel made a renovation, but this is a lye, so that new tourists think that what is written here on internet is not true. They don't even have a restaurant, a decent one at least. They have only a canteen. Corruption in Turkey seems to be very high if such a miserable hotel got 5stars when they deserve hardly a 2 star for such a miserable hotel, food and service. If you go there you will have only a miserable holiday! I will never go in Turkey for holidays!

I was in the hotel because of a student program I applied for. I spent 13 days in the hotel in all inclusive regime. I shared room with a colleague.

The first problem I found was related to the key. In the reception they give you only one key so you have to coordinate with your roommate. The receptionist gives you more than one key "under your responsability".

The rooms have all a electronic display with the number of the room and you can ask for cleaning or not disturbing with a switch inside. The display was not working although they repaired it in a few days.

The room was nice and big for two people. The bed was quite comfortable. The air-conditiong (split type) did not work during our stay.
In general, the facilities are not very good for an hotel of its category.
The meals were repetitive, a lot of chicken everyday. Coffee and water are awful.
The swimming-pool is nice, it has slides and activities with the staff. The gym and massage service could have been better.
The hotel is located near the sea so you can go walking, through a tunnel under the road, five minutes and reach the beach. You can play volleyball there. There are some shows at night like belly dancing and fakirs

The experience was not very bad but I was expecting more.

Where to start!!!??? This is a hotel with two or three stars! And that's a lot! The staff is horrible, unkind and unpolite. Especially a guy who worked at the pool bar, he looks at you unfrendly when you want to take a drink you paid! Restaurant terrible! Table cloth speckled and torn, dirty silverware, serving drinks in plastic cups. Food awful, too! Every day chicken in different ways! Room service awful, too! I am very disappointed and this was my worst holiday. I highly recommend that you do not go to this hotel!
