Despite the many glowing reviews on Tripadvisor, I have to say Kibele was a little disappointing. On the positive side, the apartments were spotless and cleaned every day by the friendly maids; the balconies were much bigger than the norm in Turkey; the location is very good being less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and the attached restaurant offers some lovely food.
However there were a few issues. The furnishings are very basic and tired with the drawers sticking and almost impossible to open and the doors of the wardrobes not closing. Although we had no intention of cooking, the kitchenette is very poorly equipped... e.g. 2 very small cups and two tiny glasses. The shower looked really good and spacious but whenever used, dirty water poured out from beneath the shower tray and flooded the bathroom, We repeatedly asked for action to be taken and after two days we were moved to another room. This time there was little more than a trickle from the shower, the toilet constantly ran and one of the lights could only be turned off by unscrewing the bulb. I am realistic about Turkish plumbing and know this was only a 3 star hotel but most disappointing was the lack of interest shown by the staff. To be honest, we did not find the staff particularly friendly, which is very unusual in Turkey, and it may just be that they were tired at the end of a long season.
So overall we had a lovely holiday but wouldn't return to the Kibele as we have had much better experiences at similarly rated Turkish hotels.
