What a lovely week from the 23rd -30th October 2013 we stayed in room 428 that was a top floor with a view over the pool area and not only that you could see out over the bay of Olu Deniz; Really stunning.
The staff were very helpful especially Ahmet the front office manager. I had left my printed flight tickets on the coach and Ahmet kindly had them printed off for me and delivered to my room. Also phoned through for confirmation times for my taxi back to the airport. Service with a smile. Thank you Ahmet.
Wifi - Please note this is only available in the reception area. I did not find this a problem as we have found this to be normal practice in Tunisia, Morocco and Turkey at all the hotels we have visited. It was shame that some British guests decided to have a slanging match with the manager about this in public.
Room- 428 - Modern, clean with neutral colours
Ahmet arranged for an extra bed for my daughter...this was all in place for when we arrived. excellent service with a smile. The toilet flush did not work one morning and the maintenance people were there within the hour and it was fixed. Once again not a problem. Maid service was everyday however; we only decided to have our made up every other day but I could not fault the cleanliness of the hotel and people who were happy in their work.
It is true there are no kettles in the rooms but I have to say that does not bother me as tea and coffee are available from 07:30hrs until midnight and this is an all inclusive hotel and not self catering however British guests still decided to moan about this..how much coffee and tea can you drink in one day?
Some guests were upset about being woken up by the call to prayer and I hate to state the obvious but this is a Muslim country; but on the funny side one teenager with a Bristolian accent did ask the waiter out loud " what's that funny music" the ignorance of youth. haahaa.
There was always something to eat, not a great choice of Turkish food which was a shame. One night there was a long queue so I joined it thinking there was something special on and then found out everyone was queuing for.... yes " Chips" oh dear.... each to their own but not my cup of tea 7 days a week. Plenty of salad, freshly made bread, meats etc and if thats not enough they then have a snack bar with burgers/chips, pizza, icecream and then afternoon tea with cakes. If you can't find anything then I would wouldnt say you were fussy just difficult.
Bar - Usual all inclusive local wines, beer and spirits if you're looking for brands that have to be imported then like everywhere else this comes at an additional cost. Special hello to Simi who was always smiling even when dealing with miserable people and always happy to help and put my other half right with an appalling attempt at the Turkish language. Simi a credit to The Alize Hotel.
Spa - Well what a treat; Turkish bath, sauna, full body scrub, massage, face mask all for under £20 and the men can get all this done with a turkish shave and haircut for £21 pedicure £9 for a pedicure. I've done the authentic Turkish bath before and have to say this was more enjoyable by far.
A faultless hotel I paid £900 for flights, hotel and transfers, insurance and airport parking for a family of three. Not bad considering it was half term week.
I do plan on returning next October for a week and lets hope the weather will be as good then as we have had this past week.
See you all soon. and Thank you for an enjoyable stay.
