After arriving at the hotel hours late 12pm instead of 9pm even though we were only 1 hour late setting off from the airport when we got to other side the driver got lost and took us everywhere.
After a 10 day stay at this hotel with my partner, there are many points that need mentioning if you dont want a bad holoiday. I have travelled all over and been to turkey many many times but never this side and never again , North here I come again.
However how it got a 4 star rating is a mystery to me as I would put it at a 2 with a stretch at a 3* .Whilst the reception and public areas are all clean and well kept, they are not up to 4 star standard and the hotel is very dated . Furthermore, the rooms are incredibly small and very crowed but were clean. when you have paid several hundred pounds you expect quality and for a 4 star good beds, the photos in the broucher are nothing like as they look big and spacious in there. (LAUGH JOKE)
At the hotel the reception staff were very friendly the rest of staff were grim faced who spoke no english at all and dont speak to you unless you are either Russians and Germanor Dutch guests
The hotel is popular with Russians and German,Dutch who are loud, rude, arrogant, queue jumping, sun bed and food grabbing people.who do not understand what queues are for, you could guarantee someone would literally step in front of you and push their way always to the front and think it was ok, the hotel staff don't seem to care if your English as they are relly only interested Russians & Germans etc and English don't count.
Food (If you can call it that) is advertised as being a mix of Turkush and European. The only option on the buffet which I was able to identify in the entire 10 days was rice! cold soggy chips and salad, it was the same food for every day for all three meals. even breakfast was salad, even if the buffet was labelled so you knew what you were eating it was still terrible food and always cold or just luke warm. I think we lost a stone on holiday. I had to beg for milk each time I wanted tea as they do not leave it out as the Russians ect dont use milk.
My partner was very ill with upset tummy ect as was lots of other peole and felt it was a mixture of the food and larger.
However, the pool and pool area was very clean and they were lots of beds but very close together you were sat on top of the next person. 'Thank heaven for good weather'
(DRINKS)?????There was only 1 Larger which was full of gas and only gave you half of glass if you asked them to fill it they refused , 2 shorts which was vodka or gin and anything else you wanted had to buy somewhere else as the hotel did not stock it.
There were no trips from the hotel and no rep or information of what to do and where to go, reception staff were meant to adfvice you but told you nothing , again a joke
would most definatley never come to kermer or this hotel again.
