After seeing mixed reviews before our visit we went with an open mind, what a pleasant arrival, the hotel owner was in the lobby introduced himself and said to go to him with anything we had concerns with and any needs, well immediately the room was changed as we were promised a sea view and the original allocated room did not have one so we were shown to a new room which was wonderful overlooking the Marina and cruise terminal bird island and city really great. We stayed on the all inclusive plan, this always has it's highs and lows but I can honestly say that there were no real issues you just need to go knowing what to expect, firstly remember this is Turkey not Britain the diet is not normal British food or attempted British food it's Turkish which means largely salads olives chicken and meatballs, breakfast is again salads boiled eggs, omlete, bread, so if your wanting Bacon sausage black pudding fried bread etc stay in Britain or go to Spain, the food in this hotel is of a good standard and if you do find something not to your liking believe me they will sort it, in fact all the staff are happy to help happy to talk and have fun with you, they work hard but are always smiling, The room was cleaned daily, basic but clean and tidy with a safe balcony, another thing to remember is health and safety regs are not British regs so if you see dome wires hanging out or a loose fitting, dead flies etc it's Turkey That's how it is, I have stayed in Turkey now for the last 3 years I can honestly say that this hotel far exceeded previous visits it's not the most Glam or up there but the comfort and hospitality it offers is fantastic, even when checking out I spoke to the owner about where I could leave the cases as we were not being collected until 5.30pm but check out was 12pm answer was keep your room until you no longer need it , no charge use all facilities and all inclusive facilities until you leave, when have you ever heard this happen, then later in the afternoon owner comes over and says would together like us to make you a sandwich .or something, overall all I can say is for the the money we payed and the service we got this was a lovely place to stay, when you see some reviews moaning about the food, wires, rooms etc I can only assume they don't really like salad, or forgot they are in Turkey not good old safety conscious Britain,
