We have just returned from our holiday in Olu Deniz and we stayed at this hotel from 29/9 to 14/10. Like most others our flight arrived in the early hours at Dalaman Airport and we arrived at the hotel at 0330 hrs. However like some others we were placed in an attic room with a 45 degree sloping ceiling which made it impossible to stand if you are six foot or more! When confronted with this situation, the receptionist moved us to another room immediately. However having read similar reports why do the reception persist to put customers in an unacceptable room and thus encounter unhappy tourists?

New room was excellent and maintained to a high standard by the room maid. Well done to the maid service!

Breakfast was disappointing! Poor choice of breakfast served by untrained and unprofessional staff. Sorry!

The staff in question were as i called them as the "Pool Side Boys"

At sunset around around the pool and at the same time, 5pm onwards, "Pool Side Boys" would start chasing you off by starting to rearrange the sun loungers without due care and CUSTOMER SERVICE to those who wished to remain seated around the pool. We always had to stand up and allow them to do what they want and without the slighest thank you from THEM!

The restaurant experience in Olu Deniz is excellent and i recommend all travellers to try as many different restaurants down the strip. Try Daphnes, Mustapi's, Jade Fish restaurant next to the seahorse bar and many others where the evening meal experience was excellent and great value for money!

Room Tip: Avoid arriving in the early hours and getting forced into the attic room!

My husband and myself have just returned from a 15 night stay at the montabello, we stayed in a large room in block 4. The accommodation is excellent, plenty of space (maybe would benefit from a little extra storage), lovely bathroom with large shower, sea view from balcony. The cleaner was lovely, always smiling and appeared to work really hard.
We found all the staff fine, some more pleasant than others but nobody was rude or surly. Breakfast as others have said was fairly basic but we have been going to olu deniz off and on for 20 years and have found most of the breakfasts very similar, that said i would agree it will need improvement for next year if going AI. Pool Bar food was fine, some choices better than others.
No problem with sun beds, we found there was plenty of room. The only real concern I had were the steps into the pool, dangerously slippy,, but as they had slip hazard signs on them I'm hoping that it is something they will address over the winter.
All in all we had a good holiday and at £21 per night for 2 it was incredible value for money,we are planning to return in may with family even though it will be AI.

Only built a year.Nice clean hotel only a few minutes walk from the beach and just far away enough from the centre to avoid any noise.The rooms were a reasonable size with a decent shower room with a small lcd television.The dolmus stops just a few minutes away which is handy for Hisaronu and Fetieh.The hotel will organize free pick ups to private beaches on the Blue Lagoon but they don't tell you about this.i would have given this hotel a 4 rating but the breakfast was lousy and disorganized and the boys who work there could do with a customer care course, so consequently we didn't eat there in the evening. There are some great restaurants in the town though.If you get a safe it costs you £15, the guy comes along who can't speak english and uses your room number as the password which is useless.There are no instructions but you can alter it to whatever you want.Also you can keep the room until 5pm but it will cost you £20.

Stayed here for a week B&B in October 2012. Really good quality hotel, couldn’t really pick too much wrong with it at all. Great pool, prices at the bar where competitive with those in-resort (6lira a beer). Room was all very new, well-built and clean (cleaner was in the room most days). Not the most space in the world to store clothes but still just about enough. Double bed was firm but comfortable, and bed was made up every day. Shower was first class too, both hand-held and an overhead one to choose from! Sound proofing on the balcony door was exceptional too as the waterfall outside the room couldn’t be heard once the door was shut; obviously money had been spent on good quality double-glazed doors and windows. We had our young son who slept perfectly every night so really cant understand previous comment about noise? We were also near the slides but never heard a thing. Also disagree with some of the comments about the breakfast. We’ve been Turkey a few times and its just the same as other places. Yes, its contitental, and one or two things on the buffet may not be to someone’s taste, but the food and bread were very fresh, there were different choices of jams etc, and waiters would clean up a table in a reasonable time after to prepare for the next people. Coffee wasn’t too bad either, not brilliant, but really cant understand how the breakfast in general is vilified in previous reviews. Some people must just be more used to a Benidorm breakfast and think they’re above anything else maybe!

Probably the only criticism we had was the lack of regular entertainment at night. We went the BBQ night which was great, but apart from that, they didn’t offer anything more which you might expect elsewhere, e.g. cabaret acts, etc. But all in all, fantastic holiday, shame its going all-inc next year.

We stayed at this hotel from 14th September for two weeks, I have to say the hotel is lovely, clean, modern and bright, the staff are very helpful and friendly, the food however was another thing, the breakfast was just typical cold Turkish breakfast with either boiled egg or soggy scrambled egg and the evening meal was not even worth going in for - every night for two weeks it was the same about 30 combinations of salad bowls with either a piece of warm chicken or a piece of warm fish served with chips one night or mash/pasta the following night - not once did they serve any warm vegetables so we just went out and bought every meal for the fortnight. I would suggest just go room only at this hotel. The pool space was very small and you were all sat on top of each other but the beach was close by so a much pleasanter experience down there. There were not enough chairs in the bar area nowhere to sit to have a drink.

Room Tip: I would go ground floor or top floor
