Okay so here's what everyone always says about hotels in Turkey - they aren't based on the same star rating that we have in the UK/US! Seriously, stop complaining about it.
I've visited Turkey a good few times and this is one of the nicer hotels I've been to.
The good points; it's clean, bed was comfortable, we had an amazing view from our room balcony, the pool area was quiet, lots of sunloungers, free wifi in lobby, gorgeous views. Someone took our bags to our room - this is a hard task given the long walk to the rooms from reception. Free bus to nearby beach.
The bad points: No wifi in rooms, it's NOT a beachfront hotel, LONG walk to town, location is far out, the stairs from the rooms to the reception are horrendous! Our shower was leaky and made a big mess in the bathroom - not the safest.
Everything else: The food was okay. It wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible. The desserts were pretty terrible but everything else was fine. Lots of salad, vegetables, always some meat dishes. They would cook kebabs and chicken some nights outside too. There are cats, like in a lot of foreign countries, so if this bothers you you should consider it. The staff were mostly really helpful and nice. We didn't drink a lot, despite being all inclusive, but if you are a heavy drinker then you probably won't appreciate their spirits/wine/beer selection although for us it was great.
We had a great time, we really loved lounging by the pool, the views were incredible as you can see from my pics. If you want a relaxing holiday and don't want to pay a high price then it's perfect for you. We went to the beach, into the town and parasailing, but other than that we did NOTHING, which is exactly what we wanted :)
