“Ok, though a few problems.”
Reviewed November 19, 2008

I stayed here with my family from 23rd-30th Oct '08. After reading other reviews I was a little worried, but decided to go with an open mind, after all, a holiday is what you make it, and I believe that if you go on holiday thinking it is going to be sh** then that is what you will get.

We arrived at about 1:30am after a long transfer. We were greeted with a smile, checked in swiftly, and shown to our rooms. Upon check in, we were informed that we were the last guests checking in at the hotel before they closed for winter (the main tourist resorts in Turkey shut down from beginning of November through to end of April). This we were pleased with, as it meant we would get a bit of peace and quiet, which we did.
Rooms were a reasonable size, basic, but clean. We were a little put out as we had requested higher floor rooms with a pool view, and were placed in first floor rooms facing another block. This was not an issue though, a quiet word with the reception the following morning meant we were moved that afternoon.
Our rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and towels changed, we didn't like the fact that we were only given 1 towel each though- a couple of hand towels didn't seem much to ask.

Breakfast was Turkish in style and VERY basic, I'm not sure if there was more variety in busier periods. Those not familiar with typical turkish breakfasts should expect bread, eggs, cheese, ham, tomatoes, cucumber and olives, which was fine (though I would advise to steer clear of the ham as the wasps seem to like it!!) There was coffee, which was fine, and a lemon juice of some sort, which we did not like. One thing we were not pleased with is that once food ran out they were not keen to replace it-we were told on our 3rd day, "cheese finish" and did not see any for the rest of our holiday.
Like the UK, clocks go forward in Turkey for winter. However, our hotel staff did not seem to realise this, the result being they began serving breakfast from 7-9am as opposed to 8-10 previously. Their english was not great and it took them a while to understand this.

Pool area was lovely with gorgeous views of the mountains. As there were only about 10 guests staying at the hotel that week we had the pool to ourselves most days. We found drinks at the pool bar expensive, so we just didn't drink there. The pool bar will charge you about 3 lira for a small bottle of water, whereas in the town you can get 5 lires for 1.5 lira! We bought these and kept them in our rooms. The hotel offered food but we did not eat here, instead chose to eat out in one of the many different restaurants available in Olu Deniz each evening.

Up until our 5th day, despite a few hiccups, we were having a lovely relaxing holiday. Having run of the pool area was great, peaceful and tranquil. However, this was ruined for us 2 days before we were due to go home, when hotel staff began to shut everything down. The bar was packed away, as was the library in the reception (which we had been using) and the sun umbrellas around the pool. Worse still, the pool filters were turned off. This meant that within a day the pool now resembled a murky green pond and was completely un-useable. This annoyed us more than other guests as we had been using the pool on a daily basis. We can only imagine that this was done due to it being the end of season- when we questioned hotel staff we were told "Hotel finish!" Fortunately we had a word with the manager at another hotel which we have stayed at previously, 'Hotel Karbel', and he allowed us to use their pool, providing we purchased lunch/drinks at their pool bar. All facilities at this hotel remained open for guests to enjoy. Nice as this was, it was still unneccessary money we had to pay out simply because advertised facilities at our hotel had been closed early!

All in all, the Imparator is a basic hotel in nice surroundings with a convenient location. Had we not holidayed at the end of the season, I'm sure we would have had a very pleasant holiday. However, I do not see it being the end of season as a justified reason for closing down facilties which should be available for use until the very last guest leaves. Staff were very un-cooperative in this matter which did not improve our moods. Being in the Thomson 'Small & Friendly' brochure, this hotel was small but certainly not very friendly! We put a complaint into the Thomson rep, who was very efficient and understanding, this should generate a response soon. I would recommend this hotel, just not the last week of October when the staff seem like they can't wait for you to go!!

Well what can i say.....

If your expectations of the hotel are not so high you will love it! We went with the thought that it is only a 2star so dont expect anything great!! Well...

The Rooms...
The rooms are VERY VERY small by this i mean tiny!!! As usual we got the worst room in the hotel looking at the main road and a brick wall however as this is to be expected from my holidays (i always have bad luck) i did not let it spoil my stay. Had a lovely big wardrobe with hangers, Portable TV which is nice while your getting ready! everything in the room seemed to be miniture A tiny desk and stool in front of the mirror... im only 5 foot 2 but still could not fit my legs under!! The balcony has two plastic chairs which actually hung over the edge as the balcony was so small!!! The only major downside i would give to the room is that as it was 50c while we were there a fridge would have gone down a treat! Air con in the room which you pay extra for... we learnt a good trick from a couple... to get the air con to work you have to put your electric card in which is attached to your key. If you pull it off you can leave your air con on while you are out and then when you get back its like heaven!!!

Breakfast ... Well we only stayed for a week so was not too bad! although we did go out for breakfast two of the days as it got a bit boring... The wasps seemed to love the ham and the jam EURGH!! All in all the breakfast was ok if you got there early leave it till half nine and the wasps have had it all!! Be careful of one particular guy at the bar he will try and rip you off... the two lads who are their most of the day were great!

POOL... Cant comment on the pool never even dipped my toe in and the reason for this was the beach....

BEACH.... ABSOLUTELY GREAT!!! ... pebbley though so take you flip flops!! really nice beach part of it at the bottom the bit you will see on all of the pictures is a nature reserve so they charge 3 lira per person but its worth it! clean toilets and showers!!

NIGHTLIFE ... The night times were pretty quiet around the resort with one strip been the centre of attention. Leave the hotel and walk to the end of the street, turn right and go to the end of there. On the left hand side is a small bar called ROSE GARDEN! dont really look much when you walk past but cocktails are cheap and if you go around 10pm you can even get on the bar and have a dance with flames around your feet... we got friendly with the staff and went there every night.

FOOD.... Dont expect the restaurants to be cheap. We paid about the same as we would in the UK... Fish restaurant on the beach front called Jade is perfect for a romantic meal however, dont fall off your chair when you get your 100 pound bill... Cheap, cheerful and romantic try Captain Hook! the name is a bit cheesy but the food is great!!

All in all i would say TAKE ME BACK NOW!

Dont expect a lot from the hotel and use as a base only go out and explore the trips are reasonably priced and you will love it!!!

Stayed here 14th Aug for 1 week, the hotel is in a great location only 5 min walk into centre of Olu Deniz, rooms cleaned every day with fresh towels. Rooms small but were ok for the 2 of us. We paid for the air con and this made it very pleasant at night (considering the weather was 50oC!)

The pool was great not too busy and there was plenty of sunbeds available throughout the day without the need to get up at 6am to reserve your sunlounger!!

We stayed B&B it was a typical continental breakfast, bread, eggs, cheese, ham, etc.

I will admit that this hotel isnt the ritz but is clean and friendly and a great base for a wonderful holiday in the chilled out and beautiful resort of Olu Deniz.

We have never stayed anywhere as bad as this hotel.

The staff are horrid never smile, speak only when you buy something, The owners are old and just sit and order the staff about, the lady is like hilter.

We never had the room cleaned every day and the bins in the loo was not emptied every day which to us was a hygiene issue, if they did clean the rooms they did not lock the door behind you so basically anyone could have helped themselves to our porperty and when we approached the staff about this they just asked us if we was complaining and why.

The breakfast they provide is basic and the wasps on it ate more than the residents.

The pool was not cleaned in the whole week we was there, (not good).

The last thing i will say is the grandchild to the owners did nothing but scream from morning till night and to be honest it was enough to drive you mad, we even watched him wee on the pool table and it was never cleaned up. Oh and when he was sleeping don't expect music on as it is turned off.

The only good point to this holiday is we met some good friends who we hope to stay in touch with.

They was 2 staff we liked and that we zirkon and joesph who worked the bar in evening, they made our nights.

SO I WOULD SAY LOTS OF HOTELS CHOOSE ANOTHER

Just a quick review for now but will update later. Just returned on Tuesday 5 August 2008 for the second time at this Hotel. This establishment should be highly commended for a small 2 star and deserves more. The staff are very kind and will do anything for you. Beautiful setting, clean rooms even though simple and cleaned every day. What more can you want with a bed for the night, breakfast and central location. Just perfect. Would stay again without any doubt. Will do a more detailed write up very soon.
