“Good hotel but has room for improvement.....”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Me and my partner have just returned (12/5/14) having staying in this hotel for 7 nights.
The good points.....This is an excellent budget hotel in walking distance of the centre, the staff are very friendly and helpful when you have any problems especially Kerry who I found was always ensuring guests were happy and assisted promptly if there was any concerns. The rooms where cleaned daily and where of good standard. The food was basis and plenty of choice including soups deserts etc. The pool area was kept clean and had sun beds available with parasols.

The negatives, just a few ...... it rained for 3 days while we was there ( no fault of the hotel , of course) and on the sat night the rain was so heavy you couldn't even sit out. We found there was nothing to do, no TV room etc and the TV in the rooms only offered sky news, so sat in the reception area all night. We found out on the last day that the sister hotel had a TV in the reception area. The other thing I found disappointing was there was no adequate area when you had late check out to shower and change. The area that is offered is a shower in 1 room and change in the other, but you have to leave your personal belongings while you shower as the floor in the shower room becomes a swimming pool. Apart from this I would recommend this hotel and we are hoping to go back later this year.. :-)

Hı. Thank you very, very much for takıng the tıme to revıew our hotel and we are really pleased that on the whole your holıday was a very good one and many thanks for all the lovely comments too. Wıth regard to the ınclement weather that you unfortunately experıenced, I can only say ın our defence that thıs sort of weather ıs very, very unusual for the tıme of year that you vısıted, sorry. As for the free shower/change facılıtıes that are provıded, both shower and change rooms have lockable doors. 2 large wall hooks are provıded ın the change room so that you are able to hang your personal belongıngs, thus avoıdıng the water that gathers on the floor. Hope thıs advıce helps for next tıme and many thanks for offerıng to recommend our hotel. Look forward to seeıng you agaın soon.

Very nice hotel on the reception is very profesionál staff and the best is“ Hatice ". Selection of food is better like some 4* hotels. Staff is very friendly & helpfulness. Even the quite part of the hotel was closed - no season, all was fantastic quite, relaxing... strictly recommend.
Just one point for management - bathroom vent
Nice vacation :)

This place is probably one of the worst places I have stayed in. Me and my partner arrived a bit before check-in and the only place we could leave our suitcases was in a luggage room with no door or lock so anyone could walk in and take your belongings, this lead to us keeping our bags with us until we could check-in. The room was very very dated with a lot of things broken, such as the shower head in the bathroom which fell off and leaked the whole of our stay, even after numerous calls to reception for someone to fix it, no-one ever did. We arrived in our room with no towels, again we called reception a couple of times before receiving any. Happy hour at the bar was not very happy! the wine is poured out of what looks like an orange juice container, and was not very nice, my partner had a gin and orange juice, and this left a horrible gunky mixture in his mouth.
The entertainment didn't start until after happy hour had finished, presumably to keep people around. The food was of a very low standard and often very cold, although having afternoon snacks was a good idea. Restaurant staff were not very enthusiastic and we often found ourselves struggling to find somewhere to sit as all the tables would be dirty.
There were a lot of local people staying whilst we were there, which we didn't mind at all as we work in the travel/hotel industry in Turkey and have Turkish friends/colleagues, but we didn't feel welcome in the hotel with them and the impression they were giving.
We ended up spending a lot of time outside of the hotel because of the above reasons, as it was not for us at all, but if you are looking for a low standard and low cost accommodation then this is for you.

Dear Traveller. Many thanks for your comments. Please see my responses below.
Wıth regard to your delay ın checkıng-ın wıth us, I am not sure why thıs happened but as the hotel has a 24 hour manned receptıon, securıty guards and CCTV ın place, I feel sure that your belongıngs would have been perfectly safe where they were offered to be kept. Also, our advıce would have been to keep all your precıous belongıngs on your person at all tımes. I apprecıate that the rooms were dated but clean at the tıme you vısıted and apologıse for the broken shower head that you say was never fıxed. All of our rooms have now been fully modernısed to a very hıgh standard. I'm unaware of any 'happy hour' at the bar, as the bar ıs open from 10am to 11pm everyday. So everyday ıs a happy one! I'm sorry that you found the drınks and food to be of poor qualıty but would only say ın our defence that a lot of people enjoy our food and drınks and perhaps they were just not to your taste. Also, you say that all of the tables were dırty but ın our defence, you say that there were a lot of people stayıng here at the tıme so perhaps we were 'not up to speed' ın clearıng tables. Thıs has also now been rectıfıed, as we have employed more staff ın the restaurant area thıs season. I disagree that our hotel ıs low standard one and ınvıte you to stay agaın so that you are able to see all of the ımprovements that have been made for yourself.

I spent a week at Telmessos with my husband and in-laws for 10 days in June 2013. The food was lovely... a mixture of various salads, pasta, rice, chips, kofte kebab, chicken, fish etc. Some thing for everyone. Lovely burgers and chips for snacks and also Turkish style biscuits which were also yummy! Water and various juices from the machines were available as well as tea and coffee. I recommend a vodka with the cherry juice!
The room was fairly basic but cleaned most days. Towels and bedding was changed quite frequently but the blankets were quite thin so could get quite cool in the night. As we are near some lovely woodland it was cooler at this hotel in an evening so take something to cover your arms up with. We also didn't need to use the air con due to the cool air at night which was nice after the hot days! We had a room over by the water slide on the ground floor and the terrace/balcony was large enough for drying clothes and sitting out.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was also a small shop across the road which sold bottled water, suncream, ice cream etc. There were lots of tables inside and outside the restaurant so we never had a problem at meal times although it would be busy if you were there as soon as the restaurant opened as is usually expected at most hotels. There was entertainment such as traditional Turkish dancers and belly dancers with audience participation which was fun! There was a "mini disco" as it was called for the little ones. Pool was lovely and clean and the water slide was on at various times during the day.
The hotel was only a few minutes walk away down a slight hill from the shops,supermarkets and bars. There is also a Turkish bath near by. I recommend Beach Boy Restaurant for an early hours 3am fry up after a night out! We met some great people....both staff and other holiday makers. Was very sad to leave but looking forward to going back!

My fiance and I went to this hotel in September 2013 for 7 nights all inclusive and had a great time.

We stayed in the very quite and relaxing part of the hotel complex which had the biggest of the pools (hotel is split into 2 parts) and it is very quiet at night. We didnt choose this however it suited us well, we are a young couple (early twenties) and it was perfect.

Lets start off with the positives........The weather was spectacular, coming from England it was very welcomed, however was a bit too hot but air conditioning in hotel room made it very comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the dainty shop attached was very convenient and good prices, also good to help local business. the food was delicious!! a variety of food every night, only thing i didnt like was the livers and kidneys (which i have never liked).....put it this way, you will NOT go hungry as you are fed almost all day. Breakfast, Lunch, Snack Time and Dinner. The bar was great, although did run out of my favourite cocktail but hey!
hmmm what else.....provides many activities at good prices (well ours was provided by the reps, we were with olympic)
there are 3 pools and one with flumes which are fun for all ages!!

Negatives.......well there isnt many only that the waspppssss!!! they were there whenever we sat down to eat and i mean EVERYWHERE....but to be honest there was nothing you could do but bat them away. the beach is quite far, not walking distance as a mini bus is needed however when you get there it is extremely beautiful

Simple yet extremely clean hotel room but all you need it for is to sleep. the reason why it was so clean is because the cleaners cleaned it everyday!! i had to tell them not to clean it so often simply because they moved stuff around and i then spent a while trying to relocate the item :D

The saftey deposit box is not in the room but by the reception with cctv, which made me feel at ease as i knew passport and other important things were very safe.

I would highly recommend this place if you are stuck on where to go as i feel that you will not be disappointed. only one family had complained when we were there, however i feel that they had just had enough of the heat as they were there for 2 weeks! and it was really hot 42 degrees centigrade plus!!

Hope this review helps in any decision making, i will be back here in the future hoping it stays the same :)

Room Tip: If possible ask to be in the complex where the reception is not attached....very quiet and relaxing.

My boyfriend and I stayed at telmessos for 7 nights in June 2013. All staff were friendly and did as much as they could for you. Our bedroom was simple, but all you need on an all inclusive holiday (air con, hair dryer etc), the bed was comfortable and we didn't experience any creepy crawlies!

The animation team were extremely friendly, they provided activities that appealed to all, throughout the day, everyday. They put on entertainment each night for children and then for adults. They even took us to a foam party for free (for anyone who wanted to come) and made sure everyone was brought back to the hotel together in a cab.

The food was not amazing, but what you expect for all inclusive. There was always something that appealed to me and my boyfriend. There was tons of choice at every meal! The fresh bread was lovely! And it was provided at every meal.

The bar was lively with some people staying up past midnight, we had a room facing the bar and were never kept up!

Hotel telmessos is a lovely place to stay and you get more than you expect for an all inclusive holiday! We would recommend it to families, couples and groups! We are going back again this July!
