It's really sad to see the bad reviews about this hotel, because we had a fabulous time here.
We looked at the reviews before we went and agreed that the majority of negatives seemed to be about the 'basic' element of the rooms which we decided to overlook. The main reasons being that it was cheap - you get what you pay for - you don't spend much time in your room on holiday - there's a big world out there to explore! - and having been to Turkey 8 times before, I'm aware that a 2 star b&b in Turkey is not usually more than basic!
The location is spot on, lovely and quiet with the beach, bars and restaurants just a few minutes walk away. The rooms are 'basic' but spotlessy clean, as is the whole of the hotel, outside and in. There are 2 swimming pools to choose from with plenty of sunbeds and parasols. We always found the staff to be pleasant and helpful, particularly our mate Mehmet behind the bar! We would often go back to the hotel after we'd been out for dinner etc and have a nightcap (or 2!) at the bar as it has a great atmosphere.
Breakfast is your typical Turkish continental breakfast consisting of bread, cheese, jams, tomatos, olives. Other food is available and when we did plump for something a bit extra it was always tasty.
We were the only people there at the time who had not stayed there before. There were people staying there who go twice a year, stay for 4 or 5 weeks at a time and even people who live nearby for 6 months out of the year who just go to use the facilities and enjoy the atmosphere. People don't do that if it's such a terrible place!
In a way that was the only downside - some (not all) of the people who had stayed there many times before 'took over' a bit, but we just turned it into some classic holiday people-watching fun!
All in all, it was great. I don't tend to like going back to the same places and would prefer self catering but we are considering going back in the near future!
