Mostly the reviews for this hotel are spot on in my opinion.
I stayed here mid August, just my 7 year old son and I.
The hotel is in a great location. Tucked away in a nice quiet spot but a couple of mins walk to the main strip.. 5 mins to beach and 15 mins walk to the Blue lagoon.
It's true the receptionist working there are not welcoming and barely raise their heads as you walk in and the owner is the same. But that's not the end of the world!!
The breakfast is as you'd expect on a Turkish holiday and sufficient. If you go half board the food really can be limited and will not get any culinary juices flowing if you enjoy good food. But the food in the town as a whole is not much better, it's food they think tourists want, rather than decent local food. I get better Turkish food in Stoke Newington London, than in Oludeniz so the food is disappointing on the whole.
Back to the hotel, we had a great room (309) which has views over the gardens and pool. The hotel is spotlessly clean in all areas, the rooms are modern and comfortable (apart from the pillows, unless you like very high, very firm pillows). The pool are is also very nice, the large pool has a shallow end of 1.3m and deep end of 1.55m but there is a shallow kids pool too. There are often lilos and inflatables left behind by people going home to play with too, which makes it fun for the kids.
The hotel doesn't have all the usual Turkish entertainment that lots of places put on in the evening, which for me is preferable as it's all tacky and repetitive anyway.
Would I recommend a stay at this hotel.
If you want clean, comfortable, quiet but a short walk to the local attractions, then Yes!!!
When I asked my son if he liked it, he replied it was excellent. He loved the pool and Oludeniz in general. If you go to the Blue lagoon on the weekend it is absolutely ram packed. But weekends days are quieter and it's a great place and very safe for children to play.
