I arrived at the hotel at about 2am after a long transfer. We had a warm welcome by a male receptionist and a porter who took our luggage to our room. Both were very friendly. The hotel is right in the centre of the city, very busy and with weekly markets on the doorstep Tuesdays & Wednesdays (watch out though, they do pounce on you!). The first morning my friend and i had breakfast we felt very uncomfortable, the waiters were staring and then got the chefs to come out to look at us. After a few days this wore off and was no longer a problem, they ended up being ok but because we are ages 19 & 23 maybe we were not the norm custom. The hotel was kept very clean. The pool area spotless, we saw them clean the outside areas twice a day. They asked if we could understand the outside music by the pool and when we said no they put english music on which was sweet! . Our room was very clean too.. shower over bath but no plug to have a bath, didnt really bother me at all but others may be annoyed. We had a balcony over looking the pool and the main street. You can see all the trraffic but agin wasnt too much of a problem. The housekeeping cleaned our room for the first 2 days then the third i informed them we didnt need it that day but then they never came back to our room for the rest of the stay! They made heart & swan shapes with towels which is a nice touch but then for them to not return was annoying! The hotel states on website that it is close to the beach, the beach is not where you can sunbath! Nice views but lots of rocks! We found the No.5 Bus to Ladies beach which stops close to the hotel. The ride is only 10 minutes and it is a much better beach! The food at the hotel is fine. Nothing special but it is what i expected and couldnt say it was horrible. I thought generally the hotel is very clean, a little too exspenive for drinks considering there are so many please offering them cheaper . If the waiters hadnt seen the way they were in at the start theni would have thought better of the hotel but then 80% of the men in Turkey spoked and starred as we walked down the street saying disgusting things! This is what was bad about the holiday but nothing against the hotel. We paid £550.00 for two of us with flights, DBB for 7 nights and transfers. Not bad!
