Seeing as there is no english review for this hotel i thought i had better write one.
Location: If you know Alanya its at the beginning of cleopatra beach furthest from town but only a 5min dolmus ride into the center.The hotel is situated 50 meters across a one way road from the beach.There is the main block with reception first then the pool(very small)then beyond that the restaurant(very very small) with the rest of the rooms above it.There are hotels either side of the cleopatra life so because of this you only get sun near the pool from 9 till 2.there are only two sides of the pool with sun beds so theres a bit of fight for them.At 2 oclock we usually headed to the beach,they say beach no 20 is their beach but you get no extras for going there so you might as well goto the beach outside the hotel they all cost the same 9 liras for 2 beds and a brolly.I must say the beach is lovely,the water clear and they also have most watersports to hire right outside.
Rooms: small just large enough for two people free aircon,tv, not enough space to put your clothes away.Theres a safe in the wardrobe 10 euros a week.balcony just big enough to sit on,two plastic chairs.No fridge in the room which is usually an essential.
All inclusive: heres the worst bit,the hotel itself was not designed for all inclusive but as a b and b.Breakfast was your usual turkish fare eggs bead olives meats cereals yogurt coffee fruit juice, tang ect.NO TOASTER.We like turkish food but no toaster freaked us out Lunch:best meal of the day,soup,1 hot dish usually turkey or burger meat in sauce,rice,pasta and the usual lovely turkish salads puddings which in turkey are top of the range as they love their sweets were very poor two buns and some blancmange oranges apples this was the same every day.
Dinner:same as lunch.the food was edible but bland.On a night we found it difficult to find some where to sit because people hung around on the tables after eating because if you wanted a drink afterwards there was nowhere else in the hotel to go so you just kept your seat. The food finished bang on 9.30 and then we got the impression they where trying to get us to go.
Drinks: Either watered down effes or somthing like mamara a local brew with the strength of shandy.Wine, red or white which was drinkable. Spirits vodka,gin,raki in tiny glasses with just a splash in.you are only allowed one glass of anything at any time.It was a constant battle with all the staff to get anything like a good service and it seemed like customers were an inconvenience ,except yes you guessed it if you where a young woman they couldnt do enough for you.The restaurant manager was awful, if they thought you were enjoying yourself around the pool or after meals, on came the pounding rap and r and b at full volume the same cd day after day to chase you out.The drinks finished bang on 11 but weirder still was the fact you couldnt buy a drink as they packed up and sent you away.Myself and my wife come to turkey twice a year and as cheap hotels go we have been in cheaper with better service if your using it as a base then fair enough but dont expect anything special
