Reviewed October 21, 2013

This is the second time we have been to this hotel this year . We went in may and it was fantastic just as good as previous years but in October it had gone down hill the barperson john was not helpful at all what it needs is a good kick up the back side to liven most of the staff up. Not all the staff were bad some was helpful it seems since the hotel is up for sale not all the staff seem to care . We have been to the destan for the last 7years sometime twice a year we will not be going again to this hotel

we paid for surprise four star hotel deal, the surprise being its actually more like a 2 star. the hotel itself could be quite nice but it need some TLC. the rooms are fine and the beds comfy, the cleaner came just about everyday and brought fresh towels. the breakfast is a joke, on our 16th visit to Hisaronu this wins the prize for the worst. partially covered plates of boiled eggs, cheese, cucumber, tomatoes and ham all of which just sat on a table. coffee also uncovered and one day we had to break the surface to get to the granules beneath, it was undrinkable.
lighting in the grounds at night was poor and on both corridors to our room some lights were not working at all, you had to shuffle along as you could not see the floor.
we actually didn't know if anyone was in charge as all the staff wore normal clothes and spent most of their time sat round the bar. one of them (john) had a rant at us one night saying we were rude and unsociable for not drinking in the bar with them, it did seem like he'd had too many himself...
the noise from surrounding bars was very loud and without some luckily packed ear plugs sleep would have been impossible, the thump thump sound went onto the early hours 5am was the latest it went onto to.
overall a neglected hotel with little or no management, a shame as it has potential,
needless to say we will not be going back.

Room Tip: don't get a basement room, one guest complained of it being cold and damp

Just returned from 2 weeks stay at The Destan Hotel in Hisaronu.
Had a wonderful time and would like to make the following comments.
The Hotel is in a prime location a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the village. The staff were very friendly and John in particular was great company. Reading some of the previous comments its true that the rooms are fairly basic but who cares what the furniture is made of when your on holiday, or how large the balcony is.The breakfasts are what you expect in Turkey and no worse than other hotels we have stayed at. Some people just like to moan about anything on holiday we found this year - we even heard somebody say that they thought the "Blue Lagoon" was just like a lake - what more can I say! The pools were both excellent and if people can't be bothered to put there rubbish in the bins provided and leave glasses around the pool to be broken then you can't blame the hotel.
For the price and location this Hotel was excellent and we are going back next year.

Room Tip: Great Location & Very Helpful Staff. Going Back Next Year What More Can We say!

stayed in hisonaru 5 times in different hotels . love the place because of the lovely friendly people. so was really disappointed with destan hotel . was made to feel un comfortable. staff didn't make no effort to make us feel welcome. will not be returning and should've booked carmina its cheaper and the staff are lovely... destan needs to sort this out because there's far too many choices of friendly hotels. why would anyone return to grumpy staff...

stayed here with my friend, for 10 days and really enjoyed myself. great location, right near the nightlife which was great for us but far away enough so that you dont hear the noise in your hotel. bathroom and room were nice and clean and cleaned regularly, nice reception area and pool and bar. friendly staff. will stay again :) beds a little bit hard but thats the only fault.

I do not put pen to paper lightly, nor with a trivial purpose. I do not consider my self a harsh critique or an expert on world travel, but I review as I find and this is my finding of Hotel Destan:-

Location = The hotel is situated in a lovely part of Turkey, at the foothills of Hisaronu, Fethiye and near the beach resort of Olu Deniz and Blue Lagoon.

Set in its own grounds of neatly kept gardens, boasts 3 very clean swimming pools, sun bathing areas, restaurant and outside bar. All very nice.

Check-in = Swift and friendly

Room allocation = Room 207 allocated and the following points noted:-

1. Bathroom very small

2. Black mould along the top of the shower tray, that would appear to have been breeding for some considerable time. Lack of cleaning.

3. Double bed had only 4 to 6 inches of room from adjacent wall, making it impossible to negotiate getting into it.

4. Refrigerator housed in a white melamine chip board cabinet, that had the cabinet door damaged and stood next to it on the floor.

5. No hospitality facilities. i.e Tea, Coffee etc.

6. No guest information

7. TV mounted on wall was not able to be viewed unless you had a 90 degrees neck

8. Balcony just big enough for two medium sized people sat shoulder to shoulder on wooden garden chairs. No table. Looked out onto rear of hotel washing lines of hotel laundry, bedding, towels and peoples clothing.

9. No air conditioning unless you paid for it.

10 .Breakfast consisted of cheap catering instant coffee, cornflakes, melon, bread, cheese, hard boiled eggs, round slices of spam and dried fruit. Basic is an understatement.

11, The room was cleaned on an as and when basis, when the cleaners felt like it after smoking in their staff room. The room was not cleaned every day.

12. Sleep quality poor. The bed was so hard it caused pain to the back. A bed of nails would be more comfortable.

13. Room furniture was unappealing, cheap and nasty white melamine chip board.

14. Only one chair in the room.

However, the above are negative points and do not do the hotel justice, as it otherwise could be a nice hotel with upgrade. The bar was good and nice food was served throughout the day.

Relaxing away from the revellers and noise of the bars and restaurants, that are within the centre of town.

To sum up, apart from the negatives, my wife and I had an enjoyable stay without incident, but would not go again or stay at the Hotel Destan.

The price paid reflected the basic facilities and accommodation.

Room Tip: Careful choice is recommended. Rear rooms are quiet.

Lovely looking hotel with beautiful views and lovely rooms, it had a lovely quiet atmosphere too ! But the hotel felt like it needed some TLC from its owners and staff, they seemed to focus on the bar at the front too much ! Seemed like the actual hotel had been forgotten! Also, the breakfast could of been better..we didn't think it was good value for money! Could be a great hotel if they didn't just focus on that one area.
