We had a lovely holiday but it was a case of making the most of a situation.
I have visited Turkey 2 times previously and this was the worst hotel i have stayed in. Having stayed in 4 star all inclusive previously i can honestly not understand how this has been given its rating.
Room: basic, beds very firm, fridges struggle to keep things cool. If you are unfortunate enough to get a room that is next to blue lagoon, or dorian hotel the noise between 10-12.30pm is very bad. The music was so loud at times we could feel the vibration in our room. The walls are so paper thin between rooms that you can hear hairdryers, tvs, showers etc in neighbours rooms. When we mentioned on two occasions the loud music to reception staff they appeared suprised. We had a neighbour who spent hours shouting and screaming to himself and at 1am when we complained a very very kind barman came and spoke to this chap and sorted the problem out very quickly.
Food: I will eat anything and in the past have been very very impressed by turkish cuisine. However on arrival our first evening meal consisted of baked chicken, sauted cabbage and tomatoe pasta, beef goulash and rice. Edible yes but not enjoyable. One evening we had tomatoe soup that had so much salt in that after two spoofuls you could not eat amymore and the same soup was used as a sauce for a chicken dish that was also inedible. The food generally looked pale and univiting. It was a shame as the effort that went into the deserts was amazing. Although the cakes tasted of nothing they looked stunning.
Staff: very very helpful, hard working, pleasant and couldnt do enough for you.
Cleanliness: All areas of the hotel were kept very clean. The pool was immaculate and cleaned regularly.
Entertainment: Ercan did his best but it was lacking. Water aerobics seemed to be the most popular activity!
To finish,the hotel is very average and the food very poor. If you want a base to explore olu deniz which is a stunning stunning place the the hotel would be adequate, but be very careful how much you pay as you can get a much better deal elsewhere.
