Lovely hotel, the rooms were clean and the cleaning staff were friendly and really took pride in their work. The breakfast was buffet style and a bit miserable. Lots of wasps which were ignored by the staff while they ate their way through the food on display. We had our first lunch in the hotel and to be honest, it would have been handy if we could have done this a few times, but the food was a bit unappetising and the worst food we had during our two week stay. The food in Turkey overall, was consistently the best we have ever had on holiday.
But it was the pool which drove me to distraction after the first couple of days. The music was so loud that I couldn't hear my ipod through the headphones! When I asked them to turn it down, on a number of occasions, they simply put on the 'oldies' loop of music at a slightly reduced volume. It was great if you like Euro or Turkey pop remixes. Don't get me wrong, I am no music snob, but I do draw the line at Smoke on the Water remixed to sound Turkish and with a bang bang base beat. The sad thing is that they want people to use the pool and bar, but we went to the Dorian hotel down the road when we wanted to use a pool because we couldn't stand the noise. Having said all that, the pools were lovely - no naughty kids when we were there.
Oludenize was great fun and the locals were absolutely charming. It was one of those situations when you want them to stay like that forever and not become jaded by being taken advantage of by mean tourists. So be nice people!! :)
