For my first time in Turkey I got into the Magic Tulip, and I can't believe the bargain I got too!
The double room was clean and well done out, with a good quality shower. The balcony overlooking the pool was the highlight though, as it was made of stone and had a couple of benches and a decent table so it was much better than the usual plastic stuff. I did ask for a twin room however as I was there with a female friend, and got a double instead but this didn't prove to be so bad ;o)
Contrary to the other users here, I found the staff to be friendly - in fact quite amusing. Myself and my travel partner had some great banter with the bar lads and the drinks, while expensive, were certainly generous - they don't know when to stop pouring the whiskey and rum!
We ate at the hotel each morning to a continental/local style of breakfast (boiled eggs, toast, tomatoes, cheese, some kind of pastry thingy) which was nothing special but if need be there were places locally that did English breakfasts (why bother when abroad though?). The evening meal we had was well prepared and reasonable. The belly dancer night with the barbecue was fantastic and good fun (I got dragged up to dance!) and we were placed with other guests on a long table so we easily got chatting away.
The only downsides really were things like something flooding one day which caused an awful smell - this was cleared up by the evening. And one poor girl got locked in a toilet when the lock broke (I heard her shouting and had to help!), but the guys soon sorted that out. We also got to the hotel and found that we had to pay extra for the aircon and fridge which is a bit mean, as nowhere on Thomsons did they specify this, and advertised it as having aircon, thereby leading my assumption.
Location-wise it's just far enough away from the front to be quiet, and close to a shop with reasonably priced goods. For instance, flip flops and a hat cost 14YTL (about £5-6) at the shop opposite, whereas one shop at the beach front tried bartering down from 40YTL, got to about 35YTL which was £15! So I walked up the street and got a much better deal. It's only a 10 minute walk to the beach front which is good.
There's tons to do in Olu Deniz, we went paragliding, scuba diving and on the Dalyan Check Out tour. It's an amazing place. Sugar Beach is fantastic, the main beach is busy but good, it's overall an amazing place.
