After visiting Olu Deniz a couple of years ago and staying in the beautiful Mavruka hotel(go there instead) we booked this place after reading all the great reviews on this website. We are still confused at how people have rated this.
We arrived after a nightmare journey at around 4am. A caged up German Shepherd dog welcomed us outside our block (block 5) this poor scrap yard of a dog had no bed and a tiny bowl of water. Things got worse from there...
The room was stuffy despite air conditioning being permanently on and the shower leaked. The air con was dripping so much water despite it being reported and fixed that we had to borrow towels to soak it up. We've probably got Legionnaires Disease now! The bathroom already had spare towels under the sink to soak up the dripping water from the pipe there (maid put them there) and we had to add to them for the shower.
The balcony was small and the view over the pool was lovely.
The pool was very cold which was refreshing in the beautiful heat but as for a sun bed, God you must be joking. We got up early for a trip one day and every bed was reserved by 7am and the weird thing was, people never laid on them, Colourful towels were displayed throughout the day with no people. The man on the loud microphone was so irratating and was distraught when we didn't want to take part in water polo.
This hotel is at the very end of the strip. You have to pass every hotel and walk up a steep hill just to get there.
Breakfast was basic and you even had to pay to have your egg fried. There were more tip boxes scatted around for your tips than food.
Yes, you can hear people at the mosque in the middle of the night but that only lasts for five minutes, no you can't hear the Dorian next door but the poor dog that was caged on a night barked constantly as it was distressed.
Go to Olu Deniz but please take my advice and book elsewhere. Check out the Buzz Bar!
