The hotel is located in the center of Alanya and it takes about 2 hours by bus from the airport to the resort in Antalya. It is a small hotel directly on one of the main streets that connect the area to the city center and harbor. In the city itself, which is large enough there are a number of discos, clubs, restaurants, a beautiful harbor with yachts and cute little boats sailing along where you can eat and drink tour nighttime panorama of the city, as well as a large number of monuments and parks for walking. Above the town is the famous fortress of Seljuk period which is the center around which the pre-Ottoman period, the city developed. All those who are interested in the tourist tours from Alanya buses can go on excursions, egc at the mouth of the river Manavgat, then the ancient city of Side, in Pamukale or visit Aspendos ancient Colosseum. Turkish night with belly dancers and soldiers who deftly handled knives and swords with dancing and music are unforgettable.
The hotel is located just down the street separated from the sandy Cleopatra Beach and next to the hotel there is a promenade with beautiful fountains, exercise equipment and outdoor parks. My husband and I have been in this hotel spent honeymoon. Service is all inclusive. The hotel staff is extremely friendly, one guy will take things to the room. Rooms are designed in a beautiful blue tones with a touch of wood carvings, modern and functional. In each room there is a LCD TV and mini bar, vanity and double rooms have a double bed and a separate smaller bed. Balk has special sections for drying egc swimwear and towels for the beach and the beautiful furniture consisting of a table and two chairs if you want to observe a night panorama over the Mediterranean Sea. The bathroom is large and spacious with a modern shower where you can effortlessly get two people with two shower-one that is fixed and another that can run. Towels are provided and if you leave the towels on the bathroom floor maid will move to replace. Soap, shower gel and shampoo are provided and when they spend maid will bring you a new one. Air in the room is the central and yourself via remote control adjusting to the speed and manner of discharge of air and how much air time to work. You can leave the air conditioner turned on at a lower temperature while you are eg the pool and come in a pleasant chilled room.Maid not attack and annoying, and if you want to get some rest during the day and put a sign "do not disturb" will not fall into the room, but will be back later. When we said that we were on our honeymoon after swimming the first day we were in the room greeted by a bottle of champagne on ice and fruit as a small token of appreciation of the hotel staff.
Food is served in the main restaurant and the buffet table for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, and there is an internal room and outdoor terrace designed as a dining space. Because of the high temperatures we mostly ate inside where it's air-conditioned space. Food is plentiful and varied. Hot and cold appetizers, salads, stews, cooked vegetables, famous Turkish dishes, meat sauces are available. The terrace is a barbecue and baking pancakes or eggs for breakfast. For dessert, you can choose from various types of fruit-especially recommend cold watermelon and oranges, a variety of creams, rice pudding and specific Turkish delight with pistachios and walnuts. Missing cakes and desserts with chocolate. Beside the pool is a mini bar where the next drink at certain times you can get a cold vegetables, Turkish pizza and pies, ice cream, coffee tea and a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as burgers with fried common sense .. Beside the pool is a small stage where performances are held in the evening and dancing. The waiters at the pool were friendly and unobtrusive and if you egc hot drinks replaces it with a new and cool. All you can get free drinks at the bar, which is located next to the reception in the lobby. Deck chairs and umbrellas at the pool are free of charge, on the beach in a part that belongs to the hotel to pay as well as all the food and drink on the beach. Beside the pool is also a Jacuzzi and the water bubbles can enjoy cocktails. The pool is small and if you can not find a place by the pool just move the towel someone without having to take the place of a whole day at the beach. Guests can order a water pipe and to be paid separately but not expensive and I recommend taste apples or oranges that are refreshing, especially if you smoke or not. As the hotel is located near the center of town in the evening I recommend walking to the center and the harbor along the street because a large number of shops, bars and restaurants along the way, so you can shop with mandatory bargaining. There organizate and public transport that runs approximately 1 hour after midnight, and the map is quite cheap, about half euros.
There is a Turkish bath and do not leave the hotel and not to try the unique experience of enjoying who practiced another Turkish sultans. We took a special package with the use of the Turkish bath. Full body soap-beautiful indeed, massage and face mask with refreshments, which represents a real vacation for body and soul.
This hotel is part of the group Grand Zaman and across from him is the Hotel Grand Zaman Garden so if you are a customer of one of these hotels, you can use all the services of another hotel, which was very interesting and a great advantage because as you simultaneously in both buildings, which contents are different.
The hotel has four stars, is less than the big resorts but in the city itself, the service is good, food is abundant, there are plenty of young people mostly from Western Europe and the Turks who live and work in Germany, for example, that they were not aggressive, no drunken fool that upsets you. Staying in this hotel me and my husband stayed in the beautiful memories and we will certainly be back again as soon as our little girl grows up as a hotel from the airport. For the amount of money that is paid for accommodation services is appropriate, even better than expected.
