This is a typical basic Turkish hotel 3 three story blocks, rooms are basic but all you need, as others have stated bathrooms need updating (1994 plastic shower cubicles)but hot water and pressure excellent
The hotel is ideally situated in a quiet side street but only a couple of hundred yards from top of main strip with its bars etc , then on down the strip onto beach which is stoney rather than sandy and beach shoes are recommended other beaches are available but I will comment under Oludeniz review
Being of the "small and friendly " type the hotel staff consist mainly of the family but to me the main man is Ali who is great fun whilst in his way is very helpful dealing with any problems in addition to running the bar etc He is helped by Mustafa who despite little English is quite entertaining although I still do not believe he is seventeen!
There is an excellent square bar which encourages you to chat to fellow guests prior to going out to dinner or for a night cap on returning and we met a variety of nice people
Restaurants were excellent I will review some separately initially we avoided the strip visiting the more traditional ones in the side streets however after a week or so we tried a couple on the strip and also found them excellent not a bad meal in 14 nights
Having been visiting Turkey for over 25 years we think Oludeniz is one of the best beach resorts (although it has changed since last there in 2001) but you must remember that is what it is you are not going to get much culture although there are several great trips available in the area
If you are the type of person who takes photos of some poor sealant in the bathroom or complains about the slightest thing, pay a great deal more money and go to a different hotel however if you are easy going like meeting people and enjoy a laid back holiday Go here, the hotel is probably more like a BB pub in UK than a corporate hotel
We seldom visit the same resort or hotel but I would have no concerns about revisiting the Imparator in fact it has us thinking about breaking our no return rule
