Reviewed May 8, 2013

We stayed there the last 2 weeks in April - a bit too early for the start of "Season", but the weather was great for 10 out of 14 days. Hotel in the middle of nowhere and catered mostly to tour groups who arrived for dinner, spent the night and left after breakfast. Various tours from different parts of Europe every evening. Friendly staff but not much English spoken, except for Speedy - the Catering Manager (we think), who was most helpful and seemed to be able to converse in all languages. The room was adequate but one would have to be at least 7 ft. tall to comfortably reach the hanging rail in the wardrobe or use the little viewing hole to see who was outside the bedroom door. However, there seemed to be better choices of rooms, but we were not considered for them. We were disappointed not to have been assigned one of the better ones as we were booked in for 2 whole weeks. Breakfast was the same every morning - typical Mediterranean fare (no eggs or bacon except for boiled eggs). Dinner was boring - the same items were featured on the second week as we had during the first one. Took little bus into Kusadasi Center almost every day (10 minutes @ 1Euro pp). The buses run all the time and are very convenient. Had fun it the town haggling with the shop owners

Hi, I stay this hotel with my wife, rooms was VERY clean and large. İt has a very nice view from balcony.

when i read some bed comment about hotel, I suspected to make a reservation. But we are going to leave very happy, I spoke one of waiter he said they repair reception, lobby and restaurant last year. And they repair all rooms begining of this year.
Breakfast and dinner wasnt very reach but it taste very good. If you have BIG (very big) expectation choose other hotel. Im hotel management in kemer just i need to say Dont hesitate to make reservation for this hotel.

Thanks everyone for read my comment.

I will only comment on this RULE that they impose on you by signs: If you bring food/drink from outside into the hotel, they will charge you for it. What kind of a dictatorship is this? I cannot buy and bring a .50 Turkish lira bottle of water from outside so that I have to pay you 4-5 times that for the same? Look. You have minibar. It's in my discretion to use it if I absolutely need to. But you CANNOT charge me for the food I bring in, this is against basic human rights. I have the right to bring my food anywhere I intent to live for a few days. What a joke. By providing service like that, you're shooting at your own leg for a few bucks more here and there. And you get all these reviews on the same topic. Must be happy now.

I have read other reports of this hotel and I think we have been in a different place! We have just spent 3 weeks at the Coastlight Hotel.Dolmus out front. Pool and beach out back. Clean and friendly. A bit of a Fawlty Towers element to the place but hey - lighten up. What do you want for the money.We are already planning to go back. 5 star it is not, and of course they don't want you bringing in food, how are they supposed to make a profit?? but having seen some of the alternatives we were very pleased with our choice. The hotel has people on tours for a couple of nights at a time, but this was to our advantage as the pool and sunbeds were never full. The beach is narrow but 5 minutes walk away is Long Beach, lovely. Five lira in a dolmous will take you to the edge of the national park where you can see wild boar and if you are lucky, dolphins. Kusadasi is 10 mins away with all manner of life, both day and night. This was our first trip to Turkey but will not be our last. And Coastlight, despite it's little foibles will do us very well.

Room Tip: We had 310 and 311. One had a sea view but the other was bigger.

Management & staff were useless (with the exception of the cleaning lady for our room). Tables after the breakfast were just dusted down with a dry cloth to get the crumbs off the tables but just left on the floor- no clean table cloths put on the tables. On numerous occasions at breakfast we came across chipped glasses on the tray. The lunch menue was a joke as no matter what you asked for they did not have. We had been advised that there would be entertainment on a few of the nights - not true. It took them 4 days to get in bottles of light beer. The bar was not very welcoming, most of the lights were turned off , the manager was the only one that could serve you & he was usually sitting in the dark with another lady watching either something on the laptop or on TV he only went behing the bar if you were standing at it waiting to be served or if a staff member advised him there was somebody at the bar waiting to be served. When you asked for ice in your glass he just dipped his hand in the ice bucket & dropped the ice in your glass - this would be the same hands he is handling the money with. The cost of a drink in the hotel was more expensive that the restraunts overlooking the sea & marina.We stayed on the 4th floor & at night there was only a light as you got out of the lift but you had to walk in the dark to your door. Yes the hotel is on the beach but the sea is very rocky & full of sea weed. Would notrecommend this hotel or stay in this hotel again.Suggest a change in management & staff would turn this hotel around

We chose this hotel as it was advertised as one of the best hotels in Kusadasi, unfortunately this is not the case. It is off the beaten track and outside as you walk into the hotel there is overflowing ans stinking bins, surronded by cats. The food is adequate if you are adventurous but if you are not willing to try foreign dishes, thn this hotel is not for you. We asked for a plate of chips as there was nothing at all we could eat, and whilst they were helpful enough to make it for us, they charged us for the chips, although we paid for half board. We had to eat out everyday which meant more of our holiday money went on food, rather than the things we had hoped to spend it on! The staff are friendly enough, although one night as we (2 Girls alone) came through reception to go to our bedrrom at 3 in the morning after having a few drinks out, we had a call on our bedroom phone from the man on reception , which frightened us, offering to bring coffee to us in the room (we found this suspicious and creepy and were told be other staff the next day, that this shouldn't happen and it's not common practise). There are better value for money and nicer hotels to be found in Kusadasi and it is a wonderful place to visit.

This hotel was ok, but I wouldn't go there again. We arrived late during the night and were given rooms quite quickly however, when we entered the rooms they were very hot as the air conditioning cannot be switched on unless you put the room key (card) inside the card pocket on the wall. (This was very annoying as you would want the room to be cool if you have been out). On top of this, the air conditioning in our room was faulty and started about 5 minutes after I had pressed the start button on the remote.(The air conditioning also switches itself off if you open the balcony door).

The room was quite clean but was crying out to be refurbished. Some of the cupboards were broken and they were hard to open and close. The bathroom was also clean but again, crying out to be refurbished. The Shower doors were broken and it was hard to open and close them, it also took ages for water to drain down the bath.

We had half board:
Breakfast wasn't very good, same things most of the time however, evening meal was much better. Breakfast times were from 7:00-10:00 and Dinner was from 7:30-9:30. Juices were horrible in breakfast most of the time and drinks weren't included in Dinner, therefore you had to buy them at ridiculous prices from the hotel. You cannot bring your own food or drink from outside into the hotel (stupid rule) or else you would be billed.

Most of the staff were ok but many can't speak English or speak very little therefore it is very hard to communicate with them. However, we did make a couple of friends who were very helpful.

The beach is a pebble beach with a little sand. The hotel have their own sunbeds, bar and swimming pool outside. The bar also plays music nearly all day (more for the entertainment of the workers rather than guest in the hotel), this means that music can be heard in the rooms facing the beach/bar sometimes upto 2am in the morning.

The location is also quite poor, not much to do in the area. Taxi can cost alot of money therefore the local buses are much cheaper to use. Buses can be caught outside the hotel on the main road.

Overall the hotel was quite poor, wouldn't stay in the same hotel again.
