“Excellent value family hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

This is a lovely, quiet family run hotel. It may be old and a little out-dated but it makes up for this by providing good 4 course evening meals provided by pleasant friendly staff. Would go again in the future, in fact many holiday makers there at the time we were there had been before.

Stayed October 2013

The Hotel has clean but basic Turkish rooms which are cleaned every day, the Chef and his wife prepare all the food which is made with all the fresh produce grown 12 nights and every meal was fantastic, breakfast is typical Turkish, Jimmy the bar man is very funny with a wicked sence of humour and loves to dance, Pasha the chef's son serves your food he is a bit shy but once he gets to know you he is a friendly young man, My friend and I had a fantastic time here and the views are breath taking, already looking to book next year.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 121 great views and very quiet

We stayed at this hotel in September 2013 and was pleasantly surprised, had a warm welcome, great staff, including Jimmy and the chef.The room was basic and comfortable.The food was tasty and mostly home grown. Excellent views from each level, hence a lot of steps, but well worth it. Wasps were the only thing to comment about, but behind the buffet table, up a few steps was somewhere covered, wasp free and still great views. Although food was included, in town, a restaurant called Harrys and the Indian restaurant on the sea front are a must. All in all, a great stay, great value for money and have booked for 2014 already.

Me (22) and my girlfriend (20) stayed at Manzara for two weeks in September (15th-29th) and absolutely loved every minute of it.
The rooms are basic, but that's what your paying for, its not 5* so don't expect it. however for what you are paying i don't know how people can complain.
the hotel is situated up a very steep hill, which overlook Oludeniz beach, and has stunning views of the surrounding mountains and the beach itself. the staff at the hotel are amazing, funny, friendly and really go out of their way to make you feel happy, safe etc.
the more you stay at the hotel itself, during the day by the pool, or of an evening eating/drinking then the more the staff interact with you.
The chef is brilliant, his meals are fantastic, and of an evening he has an open buffet - 3 course, and for 20tl each its amazing...my girlfriend wanted to bring him home.
Jimmy the barmen is great, very friendly, very funny, had some good laughs with him of an evening.
On our last evening Jimmy went out of his way to decorate the table with roses that Young Pasher had picked from the gardens and made our last night really special (Thank you Jimmy + Pasher)
The other guests at the hotel that we met were also very friendly, there was quite a few older couples there, a few younger couples, and one or two families.
we had a very late flight coming home on the Sunday, transfer was about 7:30pm, check out was by 11am, the hotel wanted £20 to keep the room till 7:00pm although we were very tempted to pay this we had been speaking to a lovely couple who allowed us to use there room in the afternoon for a shower and to store our bags till the transfer.
if you stay in Oludeniz then you must go paragliding off the mountains, amazing experience, be careful who you book with, the rep costs more, we booked with a company called Gravity down the main strip, they looked alot more professional than the rest, they had a proper show room, there own minibuses and the staff seemed generally more happier to be in their job than the other companies.
Overall we had a brilliant holiday, really enjoyed ourselves and we are almost certainly rebooking for next year (Jimmy if your still there i will bring you some Johnnie Walker Black Label)

Room Tip: Rooms on D-block seem more updated than the rest.

Not a 5* hotel but great value for money and a wonderful location. Jimmy the barman was excellent as was the chef.

Wifi seriously lacking in reliability. Milk with coffee would be nice for breakfast instead of coffee mate.

All in all had a great time and would thoroughly recommend this holiday.

Arrived a little apprehensive, but being cooked a meal at 12.30am went a long way to setting my mind at ease. Breakfast delicious, but the wasps were a bit of a pain! Rooms were basic, bed and pillows hard and was surprised to find no fridge-needed one for my insulin and had to pay an extra £40 for one!!! the food and views more than made up for these minor niggles and the staff were always very helpful. Chef and his family couldn,t be more helpful and as for Cengiz (The Wild One) the barman what can I say! Charming and courteous with a wicked sense of humour!!!! Would definitely return. the only downside was the mosque at 5.20am, TAKE EARPLUGS!!!!!

Room Tip: top floor less noisy than others apparently.

We arrived at Manzara a little nervous to be honest, some of the reviews were worrying. However, we have had a brilliant week. Yes the rooms are basic, decor and finish all a bit lacking and do seem to carry sounds. The views are magnificent and the complex is surrounded by lush gardens where every type of vegetable and fruit is grown. Now that lead to one of the main criticisms on these reviews, the food. It is first class, fresh and you can see it being picked and prepared each day for the evening meal. Now if people are looking for a huge selection or fast foods then Manzara is not for you, but if you appreciate good food well prepared you will not be disappointed!
Cleanliness, our room was cleaned daily and fresh towels and linen provided, yes it could have been cleaned more thoroughly but it was clean and perfectly acceptable.

It's got to be said that for me the biggest down side was not the hotels fault, wasps and I'm not kidding when I say at breakfast time the stripey little tormentors descend they're everywhere. As soon as the food is gone they disappear.
The dolmas buses about every 5 mins from 8am - 1am, cost 2.75 Turkish lira from the hotel to Oludeniz and takes less than 5 mins.
So overall it was really good, I have no complaints, yes it could be better but was a far cry from not good enough. Proof of the pudding, I would like to come back next year. If like me you are unsure what to make of Manzara all I can say is accept it for what it is and don't expect 5*, but be safe in the knowledge it won't be some horrendous experience, we have had a fantastic time and have enjoyed staying at this hotel.
