Telmessos Hotel
Ranked #2 of 11 Hotels in Hisaronu
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We stayed here late July, all the staff are friendly and really helpful, Food was what can be expected for turkey, There is always something to choose, Evening entertainment was also very good, If you get chance watch the kenya dancers. All inclusive ends at 11pm but buy one get one free cocktails for £10 after.
Pool and gardens are very attractive, free shuttle to the beach. One thing I must say is this area is very touristy and you can spend the pound as well and the turkish lira everything will be priced in pound.
The hotel is in a great location 5 mins to the town center which has plenty of bars and places to eat.
If you are feeling brave go paragliding, it was one of the best experiences of my life. We booked all trips with sky sports and they was fantastic.

I would defiantly go back to this hotel

Room Tip: ask for kelvins block d new refurbished rooms, nice block with great view over the pool

Stayed at the Telmessos Hotel for 10 nights in September. We were showed to our room by the most amazing guy Alfonso, with a lovely smile, very helpful , courteous , friendly and always said hello , helping us whenever we needed anything throughout our stay
The hotel has a noisy side , loud music from 1000 till early hours, games etc in the pool, water slides ( please note they are only open for 2 x 1 hour slots each day). This is where reception is, the pool bar which is the only bar, restaurant , amphitheatre ( evening entertainment venue). If that's what you want - great.

We had requested the quiet side ( across the road) which just looks like another hotel, Blocks G, H and so glad we did. Larger pool, with plenty of space around sunbeds, quite pool bar with no music ( lovely staff serving us). Stunning views. No need for towels on the beds as plenty.
Room (block G), compact, but clean, well lit, towels changed when needed, had to chase the cleaners for toilet rolls though. Decent size fridge and air conditioning that worked well.. Safety deposit boxes are available at the side of reception for 10 days £20. Balcony really small but the brochure did state this so hard for 2 people to sit on it together. Some balconies on other blocks seemed larger though.

Food is average. We used it more for bed & breakfast and ate out for evening meal at least 5 times. Alternate mornings the chef would do pancakes or omelettes which were lovely, basic cereals and fruits, lots of salad, cheese etc. The fresh bread was lovely. Lunch and dinner were very repetitive with the same salads every day. There was always a choice of 3/4 hot options , however I would suggest they labelled the cold Turkish dishes so we knew what we were eating.
The meats especially the chicken were always cooked very well and lovely and tender. The Turkish night kebab meat was amazing. Chips on every meal time.
Quite a lot of wasps around which can get annoying and result in eating inside a lot. They open the restaurant 4pm for 1 hour to serve snacks which consist of burgers, chips, salad.

Only went to one evening entertainment so cant comment. WE went to the Turkish night, however it resulted in 5 minutes of a very good belly dancer and then had to sit through a very drawn out 50 minutes of audience participation belly dancers which went on far too long.

Great location, less than 5 minutes down the road ( not as steep as I thought) to the main strip of Hisaronu. Loads and loads of bars, restaurants , shops etc open till very late. From English breakfasts to Indian , a vast choice at excellent prices but struggled to find traditional Turkish food and then was recommended the Festival restaurant which was amazing.

They do a daily complimentary shuttle to Paradise Beach down along from the Lagoon in Olu Deniz , we didn't go to it though.

It is definitely only a 3 star property but excellent value for money, you get what you pay for but the location is great. Majority of the staff are fine, just a couple of sulky ones especially in the dining room where they work at a snails pace to clear dishes , with no smile or sense of urgency in their work.

Room Tip: Block G or H if you want to be located in the quiet side of the hotel.

Me and my partner have just stayed in this hotel for 1 week....

The hotel was cleaned every day by the maids who where lovely never had any problems.... We left out money and food n drinks this was all kept in the same place and never touched.. Pool and surroundings where beautiful.. Rooms where nice and clean not as good as the pictures we had seen online but no issue...

The food was ok we mainly ate out as it was so cheap in town... Breakfast is a Turkish meal so not for us... Drinks great....

The hotel offers a shuttle to the beach for free to there own section on the blue lagoon... Which was fantastic....

All staff friendly and there to help.... Great entertainment by the pool volley ball and water polo....

Is deffo worth it's money....

Thank you for a lovely stay!!

We love Turkey, but from the moment we got there it was awful.
Rooms & bathrooms were very dirty.
Towels and bed linen not changed all week !
They folded up our dirty towels and thought we would not realise... LOL
Cleaner helped herself to our money & chocolate/fruit etc etc.

I hate doing a bad review but it was awful.
We had to eat out every night because food was awful.
At breakfast you were lucky to survive the Wasps!

I feel very very disappointed that we booked this hotel costing £600 for All inclusive for a week for 2 adults.
We were told 4 star, no way more like 2 star.

I went to hotel telmessos in mid august, the hotel itself is split between a busy-ish road. The accommodation is small and basic but is cleaned daily. Meal times were very busy and finding a table past 6, was hopeless. Food was of a good standard but also very repetitive. Both pools are reasonably sized and cleaned often. The town is very nearby, a few hundred yards down a hill. The night life is lively and there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to go into which shut late.
If you have a teenage daughter (which I am), and I don't want to be stereotypical or damage telmessos' reputation, be wary of the staff and the men around town at night. I was alone in the hotels grounds and was groped by a staff member against my will, I also got a lot of remarks and harmless winks. It isn't a major issue, just try to be aware of just how different the people are.
The hotel manager sacked him and I didn't see him after.
Bar staff are always friendly and speak good English.
If you aren't on for a party kind of holiday but just a get away with family, ask to have a room by the quieter side of the hotel.. Otherwise you'll be up til' 3 listening to the entertainment and loud party music.

Reasonable hotel,they do their best for the amount of people staying. Breakfast good as pan cakes and omelettes alternate days. The beer is really watery and if you do not drink straight away it is really flat and lifeless. Maybe the weather don't quite know, bottled beer ok but you have to pay for. Dinner is very repetitive, but you can always find something to eat even if it is just a chip butty, you get what you pay for. Be prepared to steal extra toilet rolls from the main toilets as hit and miss with the maids as they put some in your room when they feel like or remember. The beds are very hard and no black out blinds in your room so sun shines straight through in the morning waking you up very early. Did ask at reception to have some kind of extra curtains but never got any. Hung my maxi dresses up and pinned down some towels with my husbands trainers. The rooms are very small and the balconies are tiny but you do manage ok. There were seven of us altogether so we did make the best of it and have a good laugh, for what we paid it was ok,if you get the chance please go on the jeep safari its the best day out and brilliant value for money, we booked with Pioneer, who didn't include a trip to the carpet factory which everyone else had to go on. Be warned you do get extremely wet, put everything in double wrap plastic bags as everything gets wet through, leave your phone behind
The talk of the town is also a good night out, I think they need to shorten it by about half an hour but that's just my opinion it was a good night but did drag on a bit, pardon the pun as it is a drag act, they do change every so many weeks so may be different when you go. Worth the money as you do get quite a good chicken meal.

Room Tip: 829 as near the pool area, the quite side
