Dalyan was our final stay during our Turkish holiday, having been to Dalyan before I roughly knew where the BC spa was located and thought it would be good to be just a short walk from town.
On arrival we were instantly struck by how untidy the hard standing area was with building waste and a bit concerned about the poor dog tied up in 40c heat. We proceeded to the reception area to check in. Out of all the villages and towns we had stayed in this was the only pre-paid accommodation we had.
the journey to the room you realise that many of the rooms are going to over look building works as there is so much work going on. You also realise just how crammed together the room blocks are making it quite oppressive.
The pool area with its loud music is quite small for the amount of rooms and the fact there will be many more rooms complete next season means it will be really crowed. The sunbeds (again there wouldnt be enough beds if everyone in the hotel wanted to sunbath) are packed close together, there are no individual shade umbrellas just a large pergola structure with lots of people under it.
This pool are is the main public area, the gardens are not lovingly utilised as chilling area like other hotels.
The BC spa also has move of a large hotel complex feel to it rather than a personal homely feel.
Now when I booked our 'duplex suite' two months earlier I had asked to be placed away from the building works a reasonable request I would assume, wrong. The 'suite' we were shown to not only over looked construction but was shaded by and facing the 20' high 'field' of metal legs holding the solar panels, these in turn had broken hotel furniture scattered around them. We immediately declined the room and refused to accept it. We were told they were full and it had to be this room. Again we refused to accept this. We returned to reception and were given a room recently vacated (a couple checked out early) this was at least only facing the reception wall and looking into the spa beneath us!
The 'suite': small, dark, airless, with extremely bad lighting. The downstairs living area was so dark you had to have the lights on during the day, the patio area was also dark and stifling hot due to the large wooden over hang. The outside light didn't work.
The upstairs bedroom was the most cramped I've ever stayed in. You had to move to one side if the other wanted to pass by. Good luck if you have large suitcases. Again the lighting was appalling.
The bathroom was adverage but there is no way you could comfortably do your make up or shave because of the ridiculous LED strips, these are supposed to be for accent lighting not the only source of light.
My husband and I felt so depressed at the thought of staying here for 5 nights it would have ruined our holiday. I immediately began looking for somewhere else to stay and very luckily found an wonderfull alternative for the following day.
Breakfast: very adverage at best, uncovered food with lots of flies.
I removed my bags at about 1430, dropped the keys back the receptionist who didn't seem surprised with another early check out.
In fact they were quids in as it sounds like they rented it to the Family from Taiwan who have also reviewed the BC Spa.
It was diffently not the place for us, I know it has previous rave reviews but I personally was very unhappy in this dark, cramped, impersonal hotel.
