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!
