Having read numerous reviews before we went to the manspark I thought I’d write a review on my own experience when i stayed there at the beginning of October 2013 with my girlfriend.
While some people have pointed out things which I did experience, it isn’t all that bad.
I agree the food was repetitive; it wasn’t always made clear what it was you were eating (signs in Turkish), the local beer was terrible, they couldn’t always fully understand English ( I asked for a coffee once at the pool bar and the bar man started to pour a beer). Glasses were sometimes dirty in the restaurant, my girlfriend drank wine but it was a guess what size glass she would get it in, sometimes it appeared in a brandy glass?
Although it was all inclusive why give me a coffee in a mug which will be emptied in 3 mouthfuls so I have to go back and ask for another? Just put it in a bigger mug?
Agreed the music was played a bit too loud during the day (numerous times in Turkish) when all I wanted was silence to chill and relax. This is personal opinion though; people may enjoy music whilst relaxing?
Although this isn’t the manasparks fault, I found the walk in-between town and the hotel to be, let’s say, unflattering, which is a real shame. Open bins, unused/ messy ground, not well lit in the evening, uneven road surface. However all this can be missed by a short taxi ride, 10 lire – 3 quid!!
I also didn’t see nor have my glasses cleaned by anyone during my stay.
Finally, I have honestly never been in a colder swimming pool in my entire life! It just needs raising a few degrees.
The views were amazing. I really enjoyed relaxing late afternoon by the pool with my girlfriend looking out to the sea with a drink watching the paragliders high in the sky.
The rooms were always spotless and cleaned on a daily basis; the cleaners did a fantastic job!
Kerim the waiter always made an effort and had a sense of humour, if he is there next year you’ll know instantly which he is.
The pool area was also very clean; with towels already out for you, which I thought was a really nice touch.
The grounds in which you stay were well maintained, the hammocks/ bean bag area was another nice touch. (Although you could be hounded by wasps).
The free ride to the hotels private beach and the beach itself is definitely worth the trip!
The waiters were polite and always available to refill your glass/ clear your plate.
Book a superior room!! It’s worth the extra ££.
Think about when you fly etc/ I believe checking out etc can be quite costly if you fly at a bad time, with keeping your room and access to the food/ drink. Luckily we didn’t encounter this issue because of our flights but we know others did and it wasn’t cheap for a day.
Would I go there again? Yes. Would I recommend it? Probably yes.
