Just returned from a week at Diana suites. I will give my honest opinion.
Arrived at 4in the morning to be greeted by night watchman that spoke no English at all apart from ac 8lira per night & safe £10 per week. Taken to our room. Spotlessly clean but basic. The smoke alarm batteries were low therefore it made the awful beep beep to tell you battery low at approx every 5mins. We found the nightwatchman and as he had no English he came in and heard the constant noise. He simp,y pointed at his watch Saying manger 8.00am. Imagine after a long journey no sleep due to alarm. The rooms are situated on the edge of the main Fethiye road and I mean main road. The traffic noise is horrific even in early hours of the night/day. After no sleep
We waited for manager at 8.00, no show so we went for breakfast. Average Turkish style breakfast, I would say almost edible. Disgusting coffee. The staff just stared at us and made no attempt to even say hello or show us to a table. They just stared. We smiled at them but was blatantly blanked? The breakfast is Buffett style and all the staff served themselves breakfast. Waiters, cleaners reception, nightwatchman, ALL served themselves breakfast before us , never experienced this in any of my extensive travels worldwide. So if you don't mind queuing behind all staff and having what they don't want for breakfast without even so much of a smile from them then Diana suites are for you
The smoke alarm battery eventually got changed after further reminders. At this point we asked at reception if we could change the room due to the noises traffic and no balcony or anywhere to hang wet swimwear, towels etc. we were told it would be more money. I said that was not a problem we would be willing to pay more. Anyway told to wait for the manager again. We actually stayed poolside to speak to manger and politely at all times.Waited all day and no show!! We decided not to waste anymore days so unpacked and went exploring Ovarcick. Diana Suites are close to theDolmus bus service making getting around easy. Bus service is fantastic and frequent. After being out all day we returned early evening to out room. . . . No electric!! We reported this to reception who came & fiddled with electric card & trip switch. Electric problem resolved. However as soon as we switched the light on, boom, electric off again!! Reporting this again to reception eventually we were told they were changing our room. So we then proceeded to pack up and move rooms.
Our second room was similar, still on noisy main road but clean and with electric. The next day (day 4 ) the flush on our toilet broke!! Unbelievable. Again we called reception after all surely electric and a flushing toilet are basic requirements. Anyway after a hand being held up in our face & "sorry no English" we decided that as this accomadation is just a base and we were to be out most of the day the simple solution was to use the inside of the pedal bin to pour down and flush our toilet!! On a plus the showers in both rooms worked very well. Lots of hot water with a great water pressure and soft water.
The friendliness /unfriendliness remained the same throughout the week, so we gave up even bothering to try to smile or say a simple Hello, breakfast being shared with all staff remaindedthe same for the rest of the week. If you prepare for this and are content with a clean but BASIC noisy location then this is the place for you.
The pool I must say was spotless. The water was clear, not too much chlorine really well maintened ( or perhaps it has recently been filled for season) I enjoyed the few swims in the pool. Plenty of sunbeds available with no need to reserve with your towel!
No entertainment provided as listed on website/brochure, no sign of communcation even basic greetings from staff. Literally just a noisy room.
The area of Ovarcick is really lovely, central and peaceful (unless you are sharing your room with the main road)
Had a fantastic holiday in this Olu Deniz area and certainly intend to return. However not to Diana suites. Whatever price you pay for your accomadation the most basic courtesy should be given, let alone electric & flushing toilet.
