Me and my friend stayed at the Ali Baba 24th july - 7th aug and I absolutely loved it! Was welcomed by Harry when we arrived and he carried our bags to our room and sorted our air con out, very reasonable at 20 lira per week, I would without a doubt suggest getting the air con as would've been very uncomfortable in the room without it!
The rooms were basic with just bedroom and bathroom but were comfortable and spotless! The cleaners came in every day to clean and leave fresh towels, they even tidied our mess for us!
The pool area is lovely, the pool was very clean and a good size, the area around the pool was kept clean and tidy and there are plenty of sunbeds to go around. The music was okay, a mixture of dance and pop but the same cd was played over and over, you can take your own cd's though and Seb will play them for you.
The staff are fabulous, the owners Seb and his wife as so so friendly and make you feel very welcome, if there is anything you need they are more than happy to help.
Harry the barman is crazy funny if not a bit hyper! But a great guy!
The location of the hotel is really good, only a 2 minute walk from Jack's Place (best restaurant) and about 5 mins from the bars. The beach is about a 5-10 mins but isn't that great, it's fairly dirty and extremely busy, we went to Bitez beach which was a lot nicer, got a taxi back and was about 14 lira.
Would definately recommend a turkish bath, there are some as you walk through the main bar street which are much cheaper than if you buy through thomas cook. Also alot of the other people staying at the hotel suggested the boat trips, haven't been myself but they sounded fab!
All in all a wonderful place to stay, seemed to be mainly couples staying but there were families and groups of friends too, all very friendly and had some lovely nights with them all :)
Will be going back again, maybe even next july....who knows :D
