The hotel was in a good location and kept spotlessly clean. Bathroom was modern and the shower was superb with plenty of very hot water. Bedroom was a little on the basic side but bedding was changed almost on a daily basis.
We stayed on a B&B basis and ate off the a la carte menu at the hotel several times. Each time the food was plentiful and well prepared and better value for money than on the strip. Please note that the half board meals are not the same as on the a la carte choice. However we found the restaurant staff to be very sullen, there was never a good morning or good evening from them even though my husband can speak a small amount of Turkish. The young lads were very touchy feely where young women were concerned, especially Suleyman. I would not wish my daughter to be subjected to that kind of harassment. They also whipped your plates away before you had hardly finished eating. George on the other hand greeted us everyday and was very friendly and helpful, even though we never drank at his bar. Without George we think this place could well go under, he works so hard to keep everyone happy and makes an effort to walk around the pool to chat to his guests, especially at ice cream and cake time, without pushing for sales. We chose to pay our bill on a daily basis. There was the odd mistake where the barman had over charged for our dinner drinks, but it was very easily rectified by the very nice guy on reception. One morning it even went in reverse as we had to tell them we owed them money for our meal, so mistakes do happen but it's not a drama unless you want it to be.
We did enjoy our two weeks but as a resort Olu Deniz caters too much for Brits. There was no real Turkish charm, just English breakfast menus and sky sports channels blaring out. The blue lagoon was also a disappointment to us from how it looks in the brochures, we have been to far nicer lagoons with better beaches.......
