We spent 10 days at htis hotel at the end of September 2011.
On arrival we were shown to a room which was over the entrance and looked up the street. The balconey had an empty cigarette packet on it and had not been swept. I went down to reception to see if there was a chance of changing to a pool view room and to tell thjem the balconey had not been swept. No joy at changing the room and the young man on the reception told me that someone from the room above must have thrown the cigarette packet down, this to land on our balcony was an impossibility. On removing my shoes I also realised the room floor had not been swept as it was very gritty with sand, on entering the bathroom I saw the mat you stand was extremely grubby and had purple stains on it. Later that day I asked at reception if it was possible to have a clean mat, a different young man on reception and this was no trouble at all.
Has it was our first day there and we had been travelling all night we decided to to go round the pool for the rest of the day. Not a very big pool and most of the beds had towels on them but no one came to sit in these beds for the few hours we were there. It is not just the Germans to take beds with thier towels but also the English are very uncourteous with this practice. You obviously had to go for a shower early or you ended up with tepod or like warm showers with a freezing shower an odd day. I discovered on the first day that the warm water came out of the cold tap in room 318. You also had to keep yourelf well doused in insect repellent and the net curtain pulled well across the patio door at all times otherwise you will be bitten to death with the mosquitos, we got bitten quite a lot but went to the pharmacy were he gave us a tube of gel and a tube of cream which we had to mix together and this killed in the bites in two days. A ggo mosquito repellent to use is "Off" which we bought there and another guest told us about ther for about 6 lirya. Well worth the money. The other thing we were not happy about at all was the bathroom bins were only emptied on Monday and Thursday when they changed the sheets and towels. You only get one narrow bath towel which on arrival and first change where very thin and thread bare blue towels. the seceond chage were nicer white towels, but still no hand towel. The floor was at least swept and mopped on the first sheet change.
The breakfast was the usual Turkish breakfast ( boiled egg, meat, two types of cheese tomato & cucumber and cake).At least there was a toaster althought as the bread was so lovely and fresh you had to put it through twice and at least the orange juice was not orange squash or watered down juice. The room were breakfasst was served was in the basement and a little depressing.
The taller of the two main bar men was very friendly and helpful and the two sixteen year olds who were worjking there on work experience and attended college to learn the trade and English were quite a couple of comics.
We had a lunch there one day and the food was extremely good.
The restuants along the beach front which was only a 5 minute walk away were mostly very good especially Pinocchio's where the the staff looked after you extremely well and the food excellent.
Nehir was also very good. Big Nose bar at the end of the road was good for a drink.
We would return to Altinkum possibly but not to the Nazar as it is in need or some TLC.
