“Hotel and food surprisingly pleasant after reading previous reviews.”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

This hotel was booked by friends before reading the reviews. We picked this based on pictures of the hotel, and it's 5 * rating. We dreaded to think what we were coming to after reading. We arrived at the hotel at 11.30pm, the receptionist asked if we wanted to eat first then check in, the restaurant was opened everynight for half an hour from 11.30 til midnight. One of our party was especially pleased at the surprise of some food after travelling. When it came to checking in, we were asked if a family room would be ok, when in fact they were overbooked. It wasn't too much of a problem, but fact was we booked 2 rooms. We got our own rooms the next afternoon. To compensate, we were offered free massages for the four of us and meal at the al la carte restaurant, and free safe keys.

That was the only major hiccup. The hot food was varied day to day....salads were same-ish, but a wide variety, there was something for all palates, and tasty, not the bland I've read in some reviews.

The pool was lovely to dip into when it got too hot as it wasn't too cold like some can be. Most of the staff were friendly, but most didn't understand English, they speak more Russian and german, some French. We only spoke to another English couple that were there. The rest were European, so it was hard to mix with others. Animation team tried to get the holiday makers involved in their activities, I must admit, we went out to the town after the evening meal, to do a bit of shopping, and to go to some different bars. Only 10 min walk to the town and the beach. There is a shuttle that takes you to the beach every 15 mins from 9-11am slows down a bit over lunch, then resumes from 1-3pm, before it slows down again.

Overall, would say it was 4*, our room was lovely, we were on the 4th floor overlooking the pool and mountains. There were 2 bars, one by the pool and 1 on ground floor. I'd hate to think how long you'd have to wait in the height of the season. It was pleasant, not too busy, not too quiet.

We found some of the holiday makers rude, pushing in front of queues, etc, no wonder some of the staff seem rude....it's what they have to put up with!!

We came for a relaxing holiday to a nice hotel, with nice food, we had all that. We were compensated for the first night....it was forgotten about, after a few days. I would recommend this hotel and this part of turkey. I had a week in ichmeler, and it was nowhere near as nice!!

dont even go there trust me its rubbish the hotel had no entertainment the food was recycled and cold some things werent cooked, the management team were ignorant and the staff were incompetant, no one spoke english and we were treated as though we shouldnt be there. the general cleanliness was appauling, with plates and cups in the dining room dirty and the carpets through out the hotel were stained. we wanted to come home after a couplke of days and it was the longest 2 weeks of our lives. the waiters inappropriate behavior towards the youth that we were travelling with was totally unacceptable even when we explained that the person in question was a minor this did not deter them. the hotels prices are on average 4 times more than local sources. however the local area is limited somewhat local gifts and produce is grossly inflated and most items are available in the uk for less, however the local landscape is the one gem in its crown and the beach is glorious.

overall the hotel was not bad. the pool was a good size . room was ok although our room did not overlook the pool. bed was a bit annoying as was 2 singles pushed together , therfore you end up sleeping in the gap. there were some ants in the bathroom.
restraunt again ok , food was a bit bland. pretty much the same every day.
we were all inclusive, however this does not include the named band alcohol ie smirnoff jack daniels.
some staff were very friendly some not so. we were there for one week and was the only english there. mainly russians and germans.
they have a spa downstairs which we paid 120tl each for turkish bath and massage , which we had booked for the day before we went home. however we found the same thing down the road for 30tl. we then asked to cancel the hotel one which in the end they agreed although they kept 20%. .
entertainment was not good at all and was not in english.
would recomend the bar on the beach (not part off the hotel).
not bad enjoyed the holiday although would probly not recommend for english or lone travellers.

Having booked our summer holiday on last minute.com at... well... the last minute, I was somewhat apprehensive when on googling our hotel I came across this site with its reems of bad reviews.
I would just like to leave a review reassuring anyone else who has booked a stay at The Meder Resort that it is far from the shoddy resort described previously. I don't know if they've made some adjustments sinse these other visitors went there but our experience of the resort was extremely pleasent.

The only trouble we had all week was with the air con in our room which was a little weak on a couple of the days but bar that our room was gorgeous, very clean and well maintained.
The food was lovely, different each night and with a turkish theme on the last night which was delicious. Even between meals there was a snack bar by the pool which provided good quality bbq food and an ice cream stand in the early afternoon.
Drinks were all all-inclusive as long as you stuck to the local brands which was fine. The beer on tap was trebor (much to the delight of my other half as we had expected a watery local brand). Cocktails wern't included however. Although most of the pricing is in euros we had no trouble paying in Leera.

The staff's english wasn't always brilliant but all were keen to talk to us and when they discovered our nationality all were suprisingly eager to improve their english. All were extremely friendly and had adequate english to make conversation and a joke or two!
The staff on the front desk had good english and when we wanted help to arrange our transfer back to the airport they were very helpful.

Location wise it was perfect, only a short walk to the shops and bars and the beach was literally round the corner (there was a shuttle bus to the beach which amazed us as it was literally a 2 minute walk!)

Basically without wanting to ramble on any more, I just wanted to reassure any perspective travellers that it is a good hotel with good food and good staff and was a pleasure to stay at.

The Meder Resort Hotel is aimed at German ,Dutch and French holiday makers.It doesn't offer the English much at all. The rooms are a good size,though the carpet was pretty filthy. There was hot water only at certain times.Sometimes room cleaning was in the late afternoon. The food was very poor. It was not Turkish which we would have enjoyed,and seemed to us from other resorts we have stayed in to be designed for the Germans,French and Dutch who made up 99%. of the clientele. It was bland and only ever lukewarm,though there was plenty of it. It was impossible to tell what some of the meat was.The best thing was the bread.The fruit was limited to oranges and apples and a few tinned pears at breakfast.We didn't expect bacon and egg,but sauteed egg and cauliflower,salad with sprouts in it ,soggy veg. etc...not really on .Plates etc. were cleared while some people on the table were still eating and waiters reached in front of you to clear stuff whether you were finished or not.
The attitude of the staff was very mixed and so was the sevice.We felt that morale amongst staff was very low and perhaps the management wasn't great.At one point we were accused of having three people sleeping in our room (not true) and another English couple in the hotel at the same time had the same accusation made. There was no apology made.
The only entertainment in the evenings was in German and there was precious little of that. The only English entertainment was the Christmas carols they played one evening!
Kemer was set in a beautiful location with a backdrop of mountains ,but the beach near the hotel,though in a beautiful spot,was filthy and visited from time to time by a pack of dogs.
As we went out of season there were no excursions and as with the hotel staff,the attitude of bus drivers and taxi drivers was very mixed,from very helpful to downright obstructive. We got the definite impression that the English weren't popular.

VERY BAD MANAGEMENT,Staff at the reception are very rude and not very helpful,their English is terrible,they only welcome Germans and other countries that pay them in euros as they get more for them,when we said we were paying turkish lira they drew us a dirty look and tutted,definately not a five star hotel,the carpets are all stained and have cigarette burns in them,when we were there it was cold at night and they didn't put on the heating it was cold air coming out,it didn't have any entertainment and was very depressing,i hated everything about this place. TO ALL BRITISH KEEP WELL AWAY FROM THIS PLACE AS YOU WONT BE MADE WELCOME.
