Arrived at about 5.30pm, myself, wife and adult daughter. We were shown to our room by one of the restaurant staff, who didn't speak English, so when we entered the room and found twin beds and a sofa bed I wasn't best pleased. We had paid for three adults, is it too much to expect that we would all get a bed. The sofa bed wasn't even made up. 2 hand towels, 2 bath towels, 2 drinking glasses, 2 chairs on the veranda, its as though they didn't know, or care, three of us were coming. We met another family, Dad, son (about 15) and daughter (about 13) and they had a room with a double bed and a sofa bed, figure that one out. When we rang reception all he could say was that they were all standard rooms.
The following day the maid eventually arrived at 5.30pm, then 4.30 the next day, and so it went on. If you fancy an afternoon siesta forget it.
Breakfast, 2 hot items, boiled eggs and either fried potatoes or scrambled eggs. 2 cereals. The rest was the usual continental fare, black and green olives, cucumber, tomatoes, salami, goats cheese and a selection of jams and honey, all open to the elements and various wildlife. We didn't eat in the hotel for dinner.
The lads working the restaurant tried to be cheerful but don't speak very good English. The restaurant manager, well what can I say that hasn't already been said. I even tried my limited Turkish which usually goes down well with other Turks, if only for trying, but he just walked straight past not even acknowledging that I’d spoke. Ignorant does come close.
My wife and I are currently nursing ear infections, I cant say 100% it was the pool, but I have my suspicions.
Location is OK, other hotels are just as well situated, others are worse.
After 5 holidays in Turkey I doubt we will go back , I certainly wouldn't go back to this hotel, the resort is really nice, spoilt by far higher prices than when we last went. Now the prices are the same as most European countries I think we will try elsewhere.
If you are traveling as a couple you probably wont have some of the issues we had, but, if there are three of you then beware.
