No one expects Tukish 5 Star to be the same as UK 5 Star, but the delta is about a UK 3 star.
Not the worst but also not the best, the rooms just needed a bit of maintenance. We were in a larger room that had been recently decorated, although the wall paper was peeling and hanging off in several areas and you had to hold the door frame in place as you shut the door on your way out as it was hanging off and would lock if just pulled too. Not any major complaints, just niggles that house keeping should keep check of.
The facilities, pools, restaurants and communal areas are all nice and well kept with staff cleaning and tidying all day. The staff in all the restaurants were all spot on and coudnt do enough for you, the food was good and always had plenty on with food to find somewhere at what ever time you went looking.
We really liked the coved off area where you can swim to the pontoons anchored in the bay, there are plenty of sun beds so need to rush down to grab any early.
One real downside were the team that looked after the water sports, they were relentless at going around everyone 5 times a day asking if they would like to do water sports. Not a problem but when everyone gives a different price for activities and when told that kayaking is free by one person but then to be told its 20 euro by someone else. You feel like its a bit of a swizz. We just wanted to go kayaking for half an hour (which is free for anyone that wants to do it) but when we asked one guy he said we could only do it free if we booked another activity, but when i was insistant we werent paying and just wanted a quick kayak, he was rude and said it was boring , that it wasnt a water sport and turned his back on us. Nice!!
The other major downside was the animation team had a show on everynight which ended around half 11. they then had a break and started to rehearse the next nights show. Unfortuantly our room was the other side of the hotel on the hill side facing the stage area. The animation team practiced with the sound system at full blast, not even with it turned down half, and as much as people may love Grease the musical hearing Walla Walla Bing Bang, played 16 times in a row, at 12.30 - 1.30am for three nights on a trott, it begins to wear a little thin. We tryed to complain at reception but each time it was lost in translation.
All in all, good facilities, excellent restaurant staff, poor room maintenance, poor activity staff attitude and please please please destroy the Grease sound track and tell the animation team to practice with the sound turned down and not at the same volume as when the shows on. There is no need. We wont be returning to this hotel although this area of Turkey is very nice.
