Just back from 10 days in the Blue Lagoon Hotel. This was our first visit to Turkey and hopefully not our last. We arrived at 5.30am and was met by the friendly night receptionist, check in took only minutes and we were shown to our room by a member of staff. We had a non deluxe room, however it was most adequate for our needs, double bed, tv, large, powerful shower, air con and a small balcony overlooking the gardens and neighbouring hotel.
Breakfast was plentiful with a choice of cereals, ham, cheeses, boiled eggs, fruit, yoghurt, preserves, breads, juice some mornings pancakes and scrambled eggs were available, a cooked Englsh Breakfast was also on offer for 13 TL.
The pool area was uncrowded and there were plenty of sunbeds although most had a towel thrown over them by 10am. The hotel uses a "credit" card system in the restaurant and the bar - just present the card when you wish to buy a drink or food you are given a receipt, you can then settle up in reception either daily or when you check out. We were a bit wary of this on our first day because we couldnt see any prices and thought we were going to be charged mega hotel drink prices however the drinks were only a tiny bit dearer than down in the town - 6.50 TL for a large beer.
The hotel is only located 2 mins from the start of the "strip" full of shops selling genuine fake goods, restaurants and the activity trip agents. Keep an eye up for the paragliders landing on the prom. Olu Deniz is lovely. We learned that we should have changed our currency in the resort - much better exchange rate than in the UK.
Plenty of reasonably priced places to eat and drink.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Blue Lagoon Hotel, the staff were very friendly and hardworking, the room was adequate and clean however there were a few minor niggles - the hairdryer was practically useless, minimal power and it cut out every 60 seconds, I would advise that you took your own. Our room was adjacent to the neighbouring hotels pool/snooker table which had a loud speaker over it pumping out music from 9am until after midnight so if you like a siesta - take earplugs and finally some guests seemed incapable of closing their door quietly and at several times during the day the sounds of many banging doors echoed down the corridors.
However the good points far outweigh the bad and we will definitely return in the future.
