Me and my girlfriend originally had been booked for Cala Dor/Majorca to leave on the 24th of May for a week, but the ashcloud prevented us from going and had to cancel holiday and rebook. We have never been to turkey before so wasnt sure of what to expect.
We booked very last minute with Thomas Cook girvan, Alison our travel agent was very helpfull and got it sorted for us. We booked up for a week in the greenland which is an All Inclusive only hotel and seeing it was a 4star and reading the reviews on here we couldnt believe the price we got it for so expectations were rising...

On arrival the very friendly receptionist took our details and passports (dont be alarmed when they take them, you get them back next day if you go ask) and then another member of staff helped with bags to our room.
The walk up the hill to room is hard on the old legs but is such a beautiful walk. Into our room and it was very nice. You would think it was a new hotel, not one mark on walls etc and bathroom was spotless.

Our room was situated at the top of the resort next to the upper pool / bar area which is quieter. If you prefer abit of fun during the day you can go down to the lower pool which has a flume and other activities are setup throughout the day like Waterpolo / water volleyball etc. Music from the lower bar area plays out all day aswell, a mixture of upbeat songs and some very relaxing music.

At the entertainment was abit chessy but great fun, the entertainment staff are all down to earth people and have a smile on there face always. Each night had different events setup, from 21:30 to 22:00 was usually something for the kids, then onwards was for the adults, Bingo / Karoke etc. If you prefer to go into town for the night then youll get a bus down the street into Hisaronu which is only 2 Lira each and takes 5 minutes to get there. When in, youll get alot of pubs and shops open. You will get alot of people asking you to come in there shop etc but if you say no thanks they leave you alone. Pubs are very good and the local beer called Efes is very nice. One bar called Tango Bar we went to, my girlfriend got 2 vodka and mixers and i got a pint of efes for 15 Lira, which is about £5/6 so is very cheap.

The hotel puts on alot of events outside of hotel aswell, to go to Oludeniz / St nicholas beach you put your name down the night before for the bus, and they take you there at 1030 and pick you up at 1630. But when you get there its 6 Lira each for a sunbed which they didnt tell us about, but was all worth it. Recommend going out on the pedalos, very relaxing out on the med :)

Food, the food was very good and very high quality, you can tell its not just any chef making the food, it is someone with a passion for food and it shows with the variety and the way it is placed out. I am a very fussy eater and i had no problems whatsoever finding something to eat, most of time going up for seconds hehe. The all inclusive drinks were great aswell, Perge beer was very tasty. Soft drinks was pepsi etc on draft and allover the resort was stalls setup with cold water , juice and hot drinks such as coffee/tea/hot chocolate.

I could go on and on about this hotel but i think after reading this youll clearly see its a superb hotel and the staff are great. Very hardworking people and always have a smile on face and cant do enough to help you, very comical aswell. Me and my girlfriend will be booking up again for either end of year or next summer and can see us coming back plenty more times...See you soon Greenland :)

Our 12th time at hotel and everytime wonderful. Really friendly and helpful management and staff and the refurbishment is lovely. The food is wonderful with an extensive choice of traditional Turkish and English cuisine. The animation team are new this year and are really friendly and hard working, always asking if they are doing ok and listening to new suggestions. The maids are wonderful, so hardworking and do extra little things to make sure you are comfortable. To sum up, everything about this hotel is wonderful and we can't wait for next year.

We stayed here from the 21st may for the week and i have to say it beat every expectation. The food was out of this world (even if you're a fussy eater). There is something for everyone and all cooked to a very high standard. The dessert's got me every evening, anyone who's been there will know what i mean - how can you just choose 1?? Needless to say i didn't! They were out of this world!
Rooms were cleaned everyday and towels changed but the floor wasn't cleaned in the main room all the time we were there - needless to say it got quite mucky by day 6. Apart from the this the rooms are lovely, as were the staff. The entertainments team tried very hard but got to say the entertainment was very poor! Our 1st night was Mr Greenland 2011 - basically consisted of 4, lets say slightly backward, unsuspecting lads on hol being made fools of. Not my idea of fun. The next few nights were diabolical - Karaoke, drunken people wailing down a microphone. Comedy night - the entertainments team doing a sketch show that wasn't funny at all, we left after 2 sketches. Bingo???! Oh and the highlight had to be the youngest girl on the team who has a rhythmic problem to say the least. Im sure she's a lovely girl but a dancer/entertainer she isn't - she had us in stitches with her 1 sec time delay behind everyone else.
That said, we couldn't fault the hotel - pools and scenery superb and would go again but find alternative night life. We only paid 325 for the week so think we got an absolute bargain!!! be warned though when you go out on trips etc, you get hounded by locals to buy there food and tour operators seem to stop at every restaurant, shop, petrol station possible to try and get you to spend! it became annoying but nothing that would put me off returning to Turkey.

What can I say? A friend and I went to this hotel for a weeks holiday last week of May 2011 as a last minute break. Have stayed in a number of other hotels in the region in the past. This hotel surpasses them all. I understand the hotel has been renovated - our room was very modern, comfortable and with a range of modern conveniences - flat screen TV, great shower room, cleaned daily with very friendly and attentive staff. Range of food was so extensive and plentiful that there was something for even the fussiest of eaters - we wanted to try everything. Food included some delicious Turkish salad and mezze dishes as well as catering for bigger appetites which required a choice of hot meals, pasta, potatoes (chips for the younger ones?) and local vegetables. The whole resort was spotless, pools, surrounding areas, eating areas, etc. very clean and cared for. The waiters were very attentive, even to us of the older generation. Front of house Reception were also very helpful and helped us settle in with use of internet and pool towels, etc.. When I checked out I left my jewellery in one of the drawers in the room - the cleaner came to find me in Reception to give me the things I had left behind. What a star. Thank you to the Manager and all his staff for making the holiday so enjoyable. No doubt he will send me a diet plan to lose all the weight I have put on from eating so much during the week. Please go and enjoy!

This was my 13th visit to the Greenland Hotel and as always it was fabulous - my fiance came to Turkey for his first ever visit and within 2 days he was talking about returning to Greenland.
The staff are wonderful from the cleaners to the management and everyone in between.
I suggest you give it a try and believe me - YOU WILL RETURN

Just returned from the Greenland hotel Ovacik. 8th visit..Great to meet up with a crowd of friends (20 +) who we see every year, at this FABULOUS hotel.
Why do we keep going back.????
1.The people are the best. from the dedicated cleaners up to management.
Kind, helpful, friendly, just cannot do enough for you.Always with a smile
2. The location, at the bottom of the mountain is absolutely breath taking.
3. Cleanliness...spot less in all departments.
4. Food...Bob, the chef, should be up there at the top, with some of our TV cooks.He and
his team produce meals fit for a King.Always some thing different to choose from.Some people moan, they want English roast, and bacon for breakfast. I would suggest those complainers take their holidays in the UK, and leave Turkey to the 1000's that love it so much
5. All the other things expected on holiday, such as bars, night clubs, harbour etc, are in easy reach of Greenland, including the blue lagoon, accessed from the hotel, by a free bus.
6 Could go on and on praising this hotel, but suggest any one who likes the sound of it, GO THERE.
7 Will be back in September, and then again in May 2012 for another re union with the ' Crazy Gang '

Room Tip: There are standard rooms, family rooms, and delux
