Awful, awful holiday. Frequently given chipped plates and glasses, dirty cutlery and tables being reset in dining hall but table cloths not changed, meaning you get other people's splodges on table. Bedding wasn't changed once during 12 day stay - hotel are trying to blame that on us having Do Not Disturb sign up, but what happened the other 9 days?! We had the awful luck of having a pair of someone else's underwear on the the roof below our balcony, along with many, many cigarette ends and bits of debris. Wifi is awful. Black between the tiles of the pool. All inclusive doesn't actually include everything - freshly squeezed OJ at breakfast for example. Staff, particularly the reception staff, can be quite rude and ignore you. My husband fell coming out the shower and the maintenance manager thought it appropriate to shout at him in Turkish rather than ask if he was ok. Paid the small amount of damage repair, yet received a "reminder" three days later under our door, had to take receipt down to prove we had paid! It's clear one hand doesn't know what the other is doing here.
It's sold by Jet2 as a four star plus and is a Turkish five star, but don't let that fool you. I've been in better three stars. Save your money and book somewhere that's worth your hard earned dosh.
Definitely don't book with Jet2 to go here - they don't want to know if you have a complaint. They are low cost holidays for a reason...
