“we'll be back”
Reviewed August 30, 2007

massive well replenished buffet, with nightly changes. have an omelettes cooked for you to your design for breakfast with 20 breads to choose from. beer, wine brought freely with meals. the small beach, is busy, snorkelling for 10 mins you will see schools of different species of fish. the diving guys (trex) are a wonderful bunch getting my 14y old daughter through her padi in 3 days. the guy selling the photos is a creep, don’t trust him, he breaks deals. internet in the lobby and beach bar is intermittent and signal is weak. very clean rooms, very stylish, cleaner was a star cleaning after our 2 little monsters. Check your bills from the beach club, they seem to double charge all visits (strange as all other places never made mistakes).
Concierge and “customer relations”, were a waste of time. But very little goes wrong. English is not a popular language. Really is a 5 star+ hotel. Will go back.

We spent 10 wonderful days at Karia Princess in July 2007. This hotel is one of the cleanest hotels we have been to anywhere, and believe me I do my share of worldwide travel for business, with 30% of my time. Half pension (breakfast and dinner) was included in our room charge. They had an excellent full breakfast buffet, from fresh fruits, dried fruits (figs, aprocots, raisins, etc), yogurt, cereals to traditional Turkish breakfast with a variety of cheeses, olives, fresh tomatoes, boiled eggs, preserves to omlets, bagels, croissants, fresh bread, sweets, pretty much everything that you can think of. The dinners were equally delightful with plenty of choices from cold Turkish mezes to cheeses to salad bar to hot dishes with soup of the day, at least two and often 3 meat dishes (chicken, fish, beef, typically one of each kind) accompanied with a rice, pasta and a vegetable dish, topping it off with an excellent dessert selection as well as fresh fruits. We (I and my wife) did have two very picky ladies with us: Our 18 year old daughter and my 80 year old mother. Neither one had any trouble at all finding what they liked. We were very skeptical of the half pension pricing, particularly the dinner part, due to our previous experiences in a few other resort areas (including Antalya in Turkey and Jamaica). This was nothing like those experiences. These are dishes that we would have ordered out of a menu of a classy restaurant: Very well done. We enjoyed our dinners by the cleanest pool that we have ever seen. The customer relations manager Ivana is the firendliest host you will ever meet. She stops by every table every morning chatting with the guests, asking them how their previous day was, etc.etc. Free wireless internet access is something you do not get in many places these days either. Everyone who worked at this hotel was there to serve us. By the way, they are not exaggerating at all when they talk about their beautiful garden: It is truly wonderful. I managed to stay away from the gym, but did use the sauna. They have a Turkish bath as well. Overall, we give it a 10 out of 10.

We booked this hotel as a 5* resort, but on arrival we where transferred to a 4* annex, which was bellow all standards. A dusty, smelly room without a balcony. We had to leave after one night because the management refused to change us to another room.
