“AliBaba hotel ' Miss you long time'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

I have been staying at the Alibaba hotel for the last 4 years, meeting up with friends who we have meet there over the years. ' THIS IS A 2 STAR', never trying to be anything else but a 2 star, the service the cleanliness and the atmosphere are always 5 star.
I am not sure what some people expect but as a budget hotel there are a lot worse.
Rooms are basic, shower is temperamental, but they are clean. The pool and bar area are the Hub of the hotel where you can sit and relax, chat to other guests and make new friends.
Breakfast is basic, or for a few lira you can have a full English breakfast a few metre's along the road, I recommended Jacks Place, Uncle Festers, or Red Dragon, they will keep you full all day, Ali Baba has a nice little snack menu, and the kitchen is open until about 8 in the evening if you don't feel like going out.
Alibaba welcomes people of all ages, ranging from teens to 80's,try it, you will be pleasantly surprised.
Love to Seb, Selina, Antonio, Harry and all the cleaning staff for making our stay perfect.

Room Tip: If you want a good nights sleep and are not one to stay at the bar till late, ask for a room, near t...

hotel room was brill standard but to be honest everything you need and alot better then some hotels ive stayed in .
very clean and tidy can not fault it cleaner came everyday to tidy up n make the beds n stock up in the bath room
food in the hotel again brilliant and also very well priced as everyone nos hotels usual rip you off with prices ali baba hotel however are not like that even air con was cheep at £25 a week :)

On arriving on our transfer and driving through the town late at night we had a major panic that we had done the wrong thing! What a pleasant suprise when we arrived at Ali Baba! Far enough out of town to get a good nights sleep but near enough to walk in any time we wanted to. Yes it is a 2* hotel but they do no claim to be anything else! Our room whilst small and basic was clean and tidy and beds made every day and clean sheets and towels a couple of times in the weeK. Breakfast is basic but got us off to a decent start each day. Seb, Antonio and Harry were fabulous and really helpful in tracking down my missing case. Pool clean and plenty of sunbeds at this time of year. Recommendations for eating out include Jack's place (we loved it here) and Uncle Festers (the boat trip deal is a no brainer) both less than 5 mins walk. Also Loved Denny's down on sea front and free sunbeds a bonus!..................... Only disappointment was not having a balcony but would definately stay here again! ............... oh and everyone we spoke to on way home who had stayed 4* all inclusive in other hotels had bad tummys and dreadful service!!!!

Just arrived back from a lovely week spent in the sunshine at Ali Baba. It is basic but very clean and the staff lovely and friendly. We stayed in room 37 and the beds were comfortable and the shower was not the best - but did the job. our room was cleaned everyday and for the money we paid for this holiday think it is great value for money. It is a nice friendly place to stay, good atmosphere and very relaxing. Great location and will definitely be back. Thank you to all the staff for a very enjoyable week in the lovely Turkish sunshine. Helen & Peter.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 37 and it was very quiet at night only a little noise from the road

Clean rooms on arrival but not cleaned again. Bed changed once in 11 days and towels twice. Scruffy surroundings which need attention. Breakfast Turkish and basic but you can buy extras such as beans on toast, poached eggs etc Can buy better breakfast at beach restaurants such as windy bay . Safety deposit boxes reasonable at £1 per night.
Beds and pillows rock hard. Worst we have ever had in all our lives.
Night club music played throughout day so cannot relax or read in peace. Some guests come back annually and meet here and so can be quite clicky and therefore have the last say on the music and even run the bar at times.
Would only come back if could not not afford anything better.

Room Tip: ask for quiet room away from bar as open til 3am and loud, Don't accept room directly behind br...

Just back from ali baba for second time, still as basic but still as clean, seb, family and staff still as acomodating and can't do enough for guests, thought barman harry would b great loss but antonio has filled his shoes nicely and knew best restaurants to recommend, great location and will definitely go back
