“Too loud but otherwise decent enough”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Location: The hotel consists of 2 buildings, located across the street. Main one contains most of the suites, restraunt, pool, and is separated from the beach by a tunnel. We were assigned to the smaller one, so we had to cross the road, main lobby and the tunnel every time we went to the beach, but that's fine - the road is mostly empty, and it takes just a few minutes to reach the beach.
There's a local fruit market just a few blocks away to the north, definitely worth visiting! Prices are lower than in a central bazaar, and plenty of choice!

Beach: the beach is really nice and sandy. Entrance to the sea is very gradual, the sea is shallow for 5-10 meters at least. We visited Alanya in middle October, the sea was a bit cold, but bearable.

Food: as already mentioned by other travellers, food was okay but repetitive. During our stay, fruits were almost always unripe and untasty.

Room: room was the major downside of our stay. Even when balcony door is closed completely shut, we were hearing lots of noise from the streets - evening traffic, tourists' and locals' voices, music from a nearby restraunt, dogs barking, morning prayer - everything was extremely loud. 6AM street cleaning car felt like having a loud blender inside my brain for a whole 5 minutes. Entrance door had an inch spacing from the floor, so we also heard drunk russians coming home after disko at 3 AM and struggling to find a key card. Pillows were giving both of us a neck ache, and blanket was 20cm narrower than a bed; we were given individual blankets on a first day, but then the room service swapped them for a bit larger single one, too narrow for both to fit underneath! I'm a very hard to wake sleeper, but nevertheless I woke up several times every night and had a headache for half a day.
That room really spoiled our holidays!

Good accessability on the rooms, elevator or ramps every where, also to the beach area.
Animation program could be better, all inclusive also on the beach. Good photograph services,
Good service from the personal. The hamam was a little bit under average, so was the buffet. Much of the same food. But over all a real good hotel whith nice rooms, comfortable beds, nice and clean and good service.

Some time passed since I have been to this hotel but maybe it is good cause I can appreciate all good things in this hotel. Perfect area and close to the sea by tunnel, delicious food, all inclusive is also in the beach bar, you dont need to pay for umbrellas or sunbeds. There are very lack of hotels like this in Alanya! Animation team of 2009 and 2010 was the best I have ever seen. Lots of activities inside hotel including great turkish bath with nice and kind owner....I can continue and continue...Taksim is the best, would come back immediately.

Room Tip: Better to be in the main building...close to everything that happens there.

Very nice hotel , just crossing the Tunnel inside the hotel and you will find the beach, the Pool was very nice also and the restaurant offers plenty of delicious foods and beverages, when I arrived there was a basket of fruit and bottle of wine inside the room, the room was clean , they offered a large family room in the second building but we preferred a small room in the main building.
The staff were very cooperative and the Hotel located in Oba region with many shops and restaurants around, and actually it was a nice place to walk in night.

I am just in the hotel.
It's not good.
I checked this page before I booked the holiday and reviews were actually quite positive
so I was surprised coming here seeing what I see.

Good things first...cause it's few of them:
sea is really good....warm and cleanish....
Animation staff are really trying their best
Guys taking care of beach is working hard
They make really strong drinks in the bar :-)

Not so good things:
Beach is actually not sandy....there is sand, but if you go to the water there are rocks....so not really good for non swimmers or small child. Also there are huge waves..again not for non swimmers
Hotel is really noisy, especially if in main building.Some people actually left the hotel due to that. There are discos and bars all around with loud music till midnight.
Food is just OK.....very little variety. Almost no meat. If you like salads, vegetables and sweet stuff than it's OK, but still variety is not there. Breakfast is particularly bad...eating eggs for 10 days is no fun.

There is no reason to come back honestly.
I spent my holiday here, but it was rather surviving than enjoying. Talked to few people who spent vacation here...nobody coming back....

Rather pay more and enjoy....

Family of 5 with teenagers. Plenty of food and drinks - all inclusive. Bars and refreshments are being served in different places. Food is various and fine. No big steak, but nice.
Reception is friendly - but foreign language is poor.
Annoying to be contacted by a hotel shop guy at the pool and at the beach selling massage.
Every night shows of different standards.

Very nice hotel close to the beach. The food was delicious, especially on the so called "Turkish Eve" where you would dine outside by the pool. The rooms were just the right size with a very clean and nice toilet. We stayed in the annex, so we didn't have sea view, but we really enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the street side action.

The staff was exceptionally friendly and I had very interesting conversations with them, they treated me as a friend. Our last night there, we were out late looking for something to eat for breakfast the next day as we were leaving at 06:00 in the morning. We met two of the hotel staff as they were walking home after their workday. They recognized us and asked how we were doing. They brought us to a small restaurant of sorts were no one spoke English and helped us order a bread filled with potatoes, cucumbers, tomatoes and cheese.

What I'm trying to say is: The staff isn't just nice, they're good to the bone.

The only really bad part was the beach. Though the water was generally nice, there was the more-than-occasional piece of plastic trash floating in the surf.
