We booked this hotel without reading any reviews, and after reading what most people had written we were a bit worried, but being totally honest we were very pleasantly surprised with the whole holiday. The main receptionist who greets you is so friendly and helpful, she is a real asset to the hotel. We found all other members of staff friendly and helpful at all times, I think sometimes the language barrier can be why people come across as rude, but we had no problems with anyone, they would always say hello and wave at you in passing. Most of the staff speak good English, there is also a gentleman who is fluent in English so if you had any problems he is around to help. The room we stayed in was very modern, with a fantastic powerful shower, decent sized flat screen tv with some channels in English (subtitled for Turkey) and good air conditioning which you can control yourself. Downsides to the room were that the beds were a bit hard, and the top blanket you had was the waffley type material you make tea towels out of, and also a bit small! We also found it to be quite noisy at night, we overlooked the road and somewhere played banging music till very late on a couple of nights, but other than that it was all good. The maid service you get is basic, one day we were left with half a loo roll, but we picked some up when we went to the local shop for only a few Lira so no big deal! There are plenty of chances to eat throughout the day, so you don’t have to worry about going hungry! The food was a little repetitive, however there were at least 6 hot options every day and excellent salad choices. My favourite part was the cake selection, there were lots of delicious cakes to choose from every day! I am a really fussy eater so was worried about the food, but I managed to eat well everyday, and even have a choice too. Its only a small hotel, so I think the selection was good based on how many people were eating. Whilst we were there we also took advantage of the Turkish bath they offer in the Spa, which included a full body massage for only £40 per person. The staff in the Spa were really nice, very professional, and it was a really enjoyable 2 hours. Another asset to the hotel is the beach/jetty area. It has a poolside bar, which although a little basic, does provide plenty of soft drinks, water etc. There is a ladder into the sea, which is lovely and clear, and the perfect way to cool down after sunbathing! The jetty area is perfect if you don’t like sand, the foam loungers are really comfy, and whilst we were there they were plentiful. The hotel is in a very quiet area, but if you don’t want to do much then its ideal! The buses go past regularly and its not far to Turgetreis, so as long as you don’t mind a bit of travelling you can get to some shops for souvenirs etc.
Overall we had a lovely break, go with an open mind, I appreciate this kind of holiday isn’t for everyone and if you check it out beforehand you won’t get any surprises!
