Reviewed September 26, 2013

Just returned 25th September from 10 nights at this hotel.
GOOD
Arrived early hours of the morning and was warmly greeted by night reception (male) . Receptionists (female) during the day seemed to find it difficult to talk to you and offered very little help.
Room : Was taken at 4am to an attic room (527) and thought what have we let ourselves in for. During the cold light of day it was a great room with lots of space (5 wardrobes) for storage, large bathroom with shower/bath and a huge round bed with another single and a pull down single sofa bed too (give some idea of size). Not recommended if you are tall though as the sloping roof will probably get you.

Staff : Bar staff and snack bar staff were great as were the entertainment team

Hotel : Setting brilliant with mountain views all around. Probably one of the cleanest hotels and pools we have had in many years of travel.

Food : Good selection of cereals and salads in restaurant. Cheeseburgers great from snack bar. Turkish night and Sunday roast the best 2 nights of the week

NOT SO GOOD
At 5:30am every morning you will be awoken by the local mosque calling to prayer. Wears you down after a while and you eventually get used to it!!!

Meals : Limited selection at all meal times even though they have a chef out on balcony in the evenings.
A la carte restaurant was subject to a 30tl charge per person with no complimentary visits..
Snack bar - Most food was pre cooked and left to go cold then re-heated in a microwave. Bolognese was not available for last 4 days of visit, only the tomato sauce??????
This was the first all inclusive hotel in 20 years where I had to hold out my plate and wait for someone to put 2 slices of meat and 2 potatoes on my plate. If you wanted more you had to leave your plate held out or ASK for more. Never went back for a 2nd helping of anything.
Drinks : All inclusive drinks were limited to 6 bottles. As long as you like Vodka, Brandy and Gin then no probs. Beer and soft drinks also available. If you wanted anything else then they had the entire wall of the bar with international branded spirits to choose from but you had to pay. Also ALL cocktails were payable.

All in all had a good time and met lots of great people. Staff were friendly and the hotel was spotless as was the pool.
Major disappointment was the limited selection of food and drink.
Will not return to this hotel (unless the food and drink comes up to standards of other hotels we have stayed in previously)
Olu Deniz is a very nice resort with lots of bars and restaurants to visit. Would go back to the resort but in a different hotel.

Breakfast at Cloud 9 was great. Josephs Madras and Sultan Ahmet Restaurants are well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Attic rooms are large but limited headroom.

Just returned from another awesome holiday at the Turquoise Hotel in Olu Deniz.
This is a great value for money all inclusive resort and well worth a try.
The staff are all very accommodating and go that extra mile to make sure we have the best they can offer.
We will be returning next year for the fourt time.

A nice hotel with a relaxed atmosphere & friendly staff who are always willing to help.
The 2 of us stayed here with 4 other adults & a baby. We requested a room change to be closer to our friends which was done with no hassle.
A good advantage of this hotel is the free bus service that takes you to Seahorse Beach ( 10 min away ) and although you have to pay for food & drink at the cafe, you do get free sunbeds for being a guest at the Turquiose hotel. They also do pedalo & canoe hire for a few quid.
The food at the hotel is pretty good with a fair variety. They do a free ice cream hour just after dinner aswell by the pool. There is a good choice of entertainment for kids & adults during the day, and also a kids dance club at night for 30 mins before the evening entertainment which is good depending on what it is.
I would recommend the Turquiose Hotel & will definitely consider staying here again when we next visit Turkey.

Just returned from a 10 night stay at the Turquoise and i have to stay it was very nice and not bad at all.The staff are very polite and attentive and work very long hours so not always as smiley as you might want them to be.The entertainment team are very good and not pushy if you dont want to join in.We found the food to be ok,the salad selection is fantastic and the meat and veg ok.Lovely omelettes in the morning,which we found early on.Great pool area and even though you do have to rise early to get a sunbed we didnt find it a problem especially in the afternoon.We visited then local beach on the free shuttle beach to the blue lagoon which was beautiful.All in all we had a very lovely holiday and would consider returning.
