Stayed at the Ersan in September on the whole we had a quiet, relaxing holiday and didnt let the niggles spoil our hard earned break. The hotel is picturesque and in a lovely location ( after the shock of the road from Bodrum which is not at all scenic). The hotel, rooms and grounds are well kept (Very hilly, lot of steps to superior rooms ) The golf buggy tranport was handy for the less mobile but not all drivers were considerate to guests, some times we had to dive to the side of the path or be run down. The older gentleman driver was the exception, friendly and considerate, some drivers looked like they had picked the short straw.
BUT the hotel and service could be greatly improved.
1 Ok, Owned by the French and run for the mainly french clientel, fair enough but reception staff should have a smattering of English, we were rudely turn away when we had a problem with our safe and told to return later when English speaking staff were on duty! so much for wanting access to our valuables.
2 Choice of drinks that were all inclusive were abismal. See other reviews.
3 The Turkish A la cart meal was inedible and the wine at 40 euros a rip off.
4 Public loos constantly running out of loo roll ( resorted to carrying some around with us.)
5 The decking looks attractive in the photos but in reallity was looking scruffy and needed a lot of repair.
6 Main restaurant was very busy and noisy, food ok . We ate out on the terrace at the rear. No good if you have mobility problems.
7 No bar near infinity pool or the ampitheater
8 Apart from the reception area there was no where to sit inside on cooler evenings.
9 No Tea /coffee making facilities in rooms and only 2 small bottles of drinking water left daily in fridge ( which goes off when you leave the room?)
10 Only one drinks station in restaurant for breakfast , long queues for tea /coffees.
Just a few small alterations could make this hotel really nice
We love Turkey and have visited it many times and stayed in much nicer, friendlier hotels.
We will not be returning to Ersan Resort and Spa.
