“Family friendly, small & personal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

I fail to see where I can add any more useful information than that of other reviewers.
This is a small hotel which makes it more personal, peaceful & therefore the staff far more interactive with all the guests. This is most definitely the type of break I love.
Instantly relaxed from the minute we walked in. The staff recognised my friend from her visit the year before so this made for some lovely warm welcomes & introductions to me. A great touch & very important in my view. Ozie the general manager speaks superb English & is extremely helpful & knowledgeable. The other staff try their very best to speak English & are keen to learn. BE PATIENT & help them. Please don't just tut at them for not understanding you, it's downright rude!
Rooms are simple but all you require. Free aircon is a huge plus for a 3* hotel. Minibar in room with price list. Water, beer, fizzy drinks etc. Same price as bars downstairs so no problem. It all gets added to your bill once the cleaning staff check on a daily basis.
Talking of which, you are given a credit card to run up a tab which we paid every couple of days, but they will take cash it's no issue.
Food was fine. Breakfast adequate, evening meals were excellent. Snack menu is great & can highly recommend the veggie pizza!
2 pool areas. One family one downstairs with slides for kids & quieter pool upstairs. Lovely comfortable peaceful area.
We had a great relaxing trip & I would most definitely recommend this cracking little gem of a hotel.
Thank you Ozie, David, Eddie, Messi, Mert, AJ & Ken & all the others who's names I failed to take for a great week :-)

We were moved to ths after the hotel we were staying in was a complete disgrace. We had one of the best weeks away ever. The hotel management and all the staff are so friendly and cant do enough for you. The breakfast is basic but evening meals are nice esp bbq night. There is lots to choose from on the lunch menu- you have to try the pizza's there gorgeous. There is entertainment every night and ken and AJ do a fantastic job. 10 minutes into the centre(its huge)- make sure you keep haggling- we got some bargains! Ladies beach is 10 mins the other way. We also booked to go to adaland to swim with the dolphins- amazing experience and you get to watch the sealion and dolphin show first. Fantastic cheap holiday for the family

Room Tip: 506 is good for familys but no bath just a large wet room- view over the pool

Kusadasi is a lovely resort not too touristy which is great, so many things to see and do. The hotel was so much better than expected. The rooms are dated and basic and our view was very poor. Although the communal areas were lovely and up to date. The dinner was amazing with a nice selection. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this hotel and resort.

our first time in kusadasi turkey and what an amazing place it is
the hotel is situated in between ladies beach and the port of kusadasi so its a lovely 20 minute walk either way to these places or 50p per person on the bus or £3 in a taxi
the hotel itself is very clean and tidy at all times the pool areas have very comfortable sun beds with padded mattresses
the rooms are not huge and the furniture slightly dated but this didnt bother us as we only showered and slept in the room the rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels provided every day we where on the first floor seaview and never heard any noise from any where we were halfboard and the breakfast and evening meal is mainly turkish
and we enjoyed all of it at lunch time there is a snack menu with a mix of english and turkish food and once again very nice and reasonably priced the staff are friendly and helpfull at all times it is only a small hotel but this is what we prefer and all the other guests we met where all friendly and many had been before looking forward to returning thankyou to all at this hotel for a lovely holiday

Room Tip: ask for seaview

Just returned from a super weeks holiday. Staff are superb ,hotel clean , had a triple room with 3 very comfortable beds. Great outdoor pool scene. Well positioned for Town & Ladies beach. Beware in Kusadasi some price's in euros got charged 10 euros for a portion of chips. Other guest's staying at hotel were super . In all very enjoyable stay. Giant screen t.v. to watch world cup.

My friend and myself had a wonderful 7 nights at this very friendly hotel. All of the staff went out of their way to be kind, cheerful and helpful. The evening meal was delicious every night, lots of choice and cooked hygienically. People say there wasn't a lot of choice at breakfast but we found it sufficient. The rooms were a little tired but our bedding and towels were changed everyday. Overall very good value for money. There was entertainment every night if you wanted to stay in the hotel, but the best bit was the gigantic tv screen, especially if you were interested pin the World Cup.

Room Tip: Higher level rooms are probably quieter
