just returned from a week at the bantur-naz, and overall it was a wicked holiday! The rooms are basic and purely for sleeping in, no balconies or terraces with any of the rooms even though when booking we were told we had one! U have the bonus of free air con which was great, the bathrooms were ok, bit grim and had mostly cold showers but not dirty just old. They cleaned the rooms daily for you and cahnged towels etc daily aswell.
The food was good, had different grill options daily and also hot and cold dishes on the buffet,. Breakfast was basic with eggs, fruit and bread, and the lunch was good with choices of pizza, toasties, meatballs burgers etc. ( lunch was served at the poolbar and sometimes u felt rushed as tables were limited)
The guys that worked there made our holiday and were so friendly but in a non sleazy way. They were always chatty and smily even though they worked all day everyday!
The best part of the hotel was the location, it was very central with bar street being no more than a 5 min walk.
Be warned though that as we were leaving and the hotel was almost full, it was a fight for a sunbed if didnt get it before 10 and people then overflowed to the poolside bar which was also limited for chairs.
Downsides: cold showers, no water on 2 occasions, 1 powercut (although came back on quite quickly) no balconies to chill on, room walls were paper thin and u could hear music from local bars and people coming home.
Plussides: fab team of guys working there, good location, good food, free air con!!
You get what u pay for and if u get a good deal like we did then its a good basic hotel to go to.
We also visited a turkish bath as u do, there was a good excursions place jus down the hill from the hotel on the corner as u turned down the side street to go to bar street, it cost us £15 including a full back massage. Also a nice restaurant to visit is "the garden" its in the shopping street and the food was lovely.
