Just arrived back from the Grand Kaptan, having stayed there half board for a week. really enjoyed it although the hotel is a bit out of the way, and not much in the surrounding area to do. Night time entertainment in the hotel isn't advertised so you never know what is on (if anything) but I have read reviews that said there was entertainment. There are 3 bars just outside the hotel, The Blue Parrot is just over the road and in the next road to that is The Orange Grove and Adanus. We went to all 3 over the week, beware in the Blue Parrot went there twice and both times had to query the bill as we had been over charged-by quite a bit as well. The bar wasn't busy so makes you wonder if it was a genuine mistake, we didn't go back again. The food in the 'canteen' thats what it feels like was nice, although the meat the chefs cooked for our last evenings meal were burgers?? Not what I would expect from a 5 star hotel! The choice of other food was plentiful and tasty but as I said it does feel like your eating in a staff canteen so if your looking for a romantic meal you won't get it here. We never had any problems with the air conditioning it was on day and night, but we paid extra for a sea view don't know if that had something to do with it, although it should'nt. Agree totally with the previous review about the First Choice/Thomson planes very tight squeeze. Also beware what time they pick you up for your return journey we were picked up at 5.30 for a 10.40 flight, when we got to the airport realised they'd picked us up that early because they had people on an earlier flight too. We had to wait 40 mins for our bags to be checked in as the desk wasn't even open, and guess what not a Last Choice rep in site to complain. Alanya is a lovely place we ate out quite a few times and were'nt disappointed. Went up to the castle and got some spectacular pictures, and aching lesgs from the walk down! On the last day of our holdiay we found a small town called Oba by accident, looked like it was a really nice place in between Alanya and Tosmur were the Grand Kaptan is. Lot's of bars and shops here if you don't want to go into Alanya, it's about a 15 min walk from the hotel. But we did find it by chance so i would say to ask the rep for directions, it's very easy to find when you know how!
All in all a lovely holiday
