With the Olympics this year we had decided on a half term holiday. We wanted somewhere that would be a great place to chill with the hope of sun. There were four of us travelling, two adults and two teenagers. On the whole we were pleased with the weather, 4 out of the 7 seven days proved to be nice and hot, but there was very very little to do in the hotel on the cooler days. Everything was closed. This was very frustrating because our tour operator never sold the holiday on this basis. In fact they even offered an excursion that we could buy before travelling which was in fact finished anyway and not running! The hotel were running very low on everything, clearly not wanting to spend out on us, the new holiday makers, as they were closing straight after we left. There was very very limited entertainment (none on some evenings), limited same old food. In fact on our first day we actually watched the workers closing down areas that other holiday makers had enjoyed which included sunbeds on the beach and other eating areas. We witnessed other very disappointed holiday makers, fights in the restaurant over the poor food, and very bored children.
This hotel had been recommended to me before we travelled. Clearly in peak season it works much better than it does end of season. Altinkum itself was very very quiet, so there really wasn't much to do outside the hotel either. The Aqua-park and funfair had all closed for the winter. I would advise that families think very carefully before travelling out of season.
Also, take your own first aid kit......there was no assistance here for a plaster!
Room was nice and clean though!
