First of all, it's important to note that the majority of the reviews for the Ozgurhan hotel are from a year ago; since then the hotel has changed in ownership and as such, the information given dated 2011 is very inaccurate.

All inclusive - Its a joke, we are not fussy eaters, we are happy backpacking and living off whatever food is going. Food is served three times a day for approximately an hour (7-9am, 1-2pm, 7-8pm). The food consists of plain pasta, plain couscous and rice, accompanied by some form of reheated chicken (it was gray by day 3) in some form of varying sauce. If you have young children or are yourself a fussy eater, this can become a serious issue for any length of stay. We had beetles on the bread, ants through the food (where serving) and once, a cat, up on the counter happily lapping away at the main meal of the night. On more than one occasion we both found various hairs in the meal, but eventually just kind of expected it and had to get on with the meal.
Drinks finish at 10pm and not a minute afterwards. We went to the bar at 9:55pm straight after another couple had been served, only to be told that all drinks where finished and that by his watch it was 10pm. We asked to see the manager as the drinks had been unavailable for 30mins during the day and therefore having one drink should be okay. We were called beggars by the hotel owner, who eventually gave us our drink. The vodka (if available), was either that poor a quality it physically burned your throat and stomach, or was so watered down, it was basically water. Also, alcoholic drinks available during the all inclusive are beer, vodka and that about covers it, everything else comes under the immortal Turkish phrase "It's extra".

Entertainment - If your holiday rep or booking company tell you that entertainment is provided (which ours sweared there was), either hang up or tell them to try again. There is no entertainment, in our hotel or in any other in a 10 mile radius. There are one or two bars that have karaoke, but considering most people go to all inclusive hotels to not spend money, this again becomes a bit of a problem.

Local Area - Well, it is sunny, there are some Roman ruins and the sea is absolutely beautiful. I'm a history teacher, so the ruins where an initial pull for me. However, with the weather as it is, its too hot to spend any real time looking around; and for what is on offer once you have navigated through the streets being asked to go into every restaurant and shop by the staff who work there. You can probably see and do everything Side has to offer in about 3 days tops. The market is good, but its not particularly cheap. Also, it seems that Side is more of a German holiday resort. So if you don't have a bit of pigeon German language down, life can become a bit more stressful.

Final review - We decided that Ozgurhan must be Turkish for 'Fat Camp', we ate nothing that wasn't bland and tasteless. Despite all of this, we where prepared to just say that we had gotten a raw deal and were determined to make the most of the holiday. We came to a breaking point when we where left with nothing to do, a bar staff that were happy to smoke over you at the bar, drink all the alcohol themselves, and in general make any time spent in the seated area/bar/'restaurant', generally unpleasant, and as there was nothing else to do in Side, we spent a lot of time there.

Please please please don't just pass off what i've said as a 'one off', there is no hope for this Hotel and you'll be saving yourself time and money by going somewhere else.

never go to this hotel as its more like a concentration camp the staff were ok but the owners are terrible very cheeky and watching you at all times.they treated us like prisoners and its different rules for different people they dont even have a beer pump all inc finishes at 10pm the food is terrible,they made us pay a bill we didn,t even owe and they only have a few drinks on all inc and even then you could not taste the vodka what a con be warned as it was a pure nitemare we felt ill with the food never again thank god we are home.

Room Tip: there are no good rooms.

room o.k. basic but everything you need,pool good not to busy when we were there,many German and Polish,waiting staff freindly, owners around watching all the time, food was limited
no inbetween snacks,if you like salad youre o.k. BUT if you like a BEER prepared to be served 3/4 a half pint from a large plastic bottle.Easy walk to beach and main town of side,shops and pubs are about 5 mins walk, overall you could probably do worse,but if on a tight budget worth it,when booking ask for pool facing room on floor 3 or 4.

Room Tip: pool facing floor3 or 4

stayed for 2 weeks with familly and enjoyed it ,the pool was a good size and very clean,rooms cleaned everyday ,the hotel itself was immaculate ,the staff were allways helpfull . there was even a bus that took you to the beach and brought you back 3 times a day .my only faults were the allinclusive finishing at 10 ,and would have liked a bit more variety of food for kids,eg chips, but overall thoroughly enjoyed it and would definately go back ,a really relaxing holiday and not too crowded.

I loved Ozgurhan Hotel, the staff were really freindly and attentive. The pool is a good size and the garden is beautiful, I found it really very relaxing. Overall it was very clean and I felt well looked after. I thought that the food was very good especially as I am vegetarian, there was a great selection.
