Reviewed October 26, 2012

For how much we paid we couldn't really complain but the apartments were very basic. The pool area is surrounded by grass which gets very dirty. There wasn't any problems with sun beds in October but they wouldn't be enough room if it was busy. Its very near to shops, beach, restaurants. Overall the staff were amazing, although the desk staff weren't good because they didn't speak any English, which caused problems a few times. The bar man makes this place good! Club dena does not want to lose him as he is the best part of this place. Full of fun. Music most night went of by twelve from the next hotel, but a few nights it went on till 3. Very noisy, if you want a quiet hotel this isn't the place due to the hotel next door.

There is nothing nice to say about this 'hotel'. Using the word 'club' in its name should have been a giveaway, but it was not.
We arrived in the blazing midday sun, to a scorching courtyard, and a casual, couldn't-care-less attitude from the desk staff. We were travelling with two pensioners, and had booked two self-catering apartments for 3 nights in July. We were not shown to our rooms, no help was offered to the older people - we were just pointed in the general direction of the rooms, with the information that "aircon is extra 5 euros per night".
The rooms were dirty, with cupboard doors falling off, and no hot water at any time for the full three days we stayed there. The one room smelled of cigarettes, and the expensive aircon (for which we were forced to pay extra, because it was 40C outside), pumped out stale cigarette smoke into the room.
Both of the 'apartments' we booked were so basic, it was impossible to create much more than a sandwich from the kitchen tools provided, and neither room was cleaned once while we were there, except when hotel staff barged in and took the empty beer bottles (there is a refundable deposit for these at the shops nearby).
The worst part though, is still to come. From 12pm midday, loud, clubbing music is pumped out at the pool area, making our ground-floor rooms unbearable to be in. But, since it was during the day, and we were out most of the time, this was less of a problem. However, from about 7pm til late, even louder clubbing music is pumped from a huge sound system, replete with a kareoke machine and a moron on a microphone screeching until the early hours of the morning. When this is switched off around 12-12.30, the inmates of the hotel go winging back to their rooms, along with their screaming children, keeping us awake until they are finally back in their rooms. Lastly, those that go out after this 'party', head back to their rooms around dawn, shouting and screaming to each other in the corridors, waking up from a very broken sleep, any lucky ones who were able to get there.
No care is taken to buffer the noise. No-one seems to worry that there may be people who do not enjoy having every night ruined by heart-palpitating musical detritus.
It was truly the worst hotel we have ever stayed in, and I would definitely never recommend it to any sane person.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel. Even the Tourism Info people were devastated to hear where we were staying, bu...

We didn't stay at club dena this time. We have stayed there twice before but there was no room for us this holiday :( we stayed just up the road. We had friends staying there so we spent every day round the pool having a laugh with the guys. They were so friendly running around with our friends kids. Giving our jack loads of ice ( thanks deniz) and calling our lexi (isha) which she is now starting to answer to!! Pool bar food was always lovely!! Thank you to all I didn't mention!! See you next year!!!

Just got back from Turkey and stayed at Club Dena , rooms are clean but basic and the pool area is large but partly grassed so wet feet get a little muddy , apart from that this is a great fun hotel to stay at and really close to the main street for shops and beach , the hotel restaurant is very very good and the barman Dennis can make any drink you like , the staff here are excellent and participate in all fun and games , we had a great time .

We were not sure what to expect after reading some previous reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised on arrival. We arrived after midnight and were offered free drinks and our cases were taken to our room. Our apartment although not luxurious was clean and spacious. The staff at the bar and restaurant were lovely, always friendly & welcoming and offered really good service. The half board package was good value & we had some nice meals.
We felt that the hotel could be improved if the daily cleaning of the apartments during our stay had been completed more thoroughly. Also the "grass" areas around the pool and children’s play area need to be sorted out.
Overall we thought the Club Dena offered extremely good value for money
