Having written a long review last July explaining how there are 3 hotels in close proximity with 'Munamar' in the title, and my experience of travel companies exploiting the confusion; I now notice that Trip Adviser is PERPETUATING the mix- up by displaying a photo of the actual Munamar Hotel with correct title BUT giving an address which is that of a DIFFERENT hotel - formerly Club Oylem Prestige !!!! [This is a hotel with a lower rating and NOT beach front! Although, confusingly, it has 'beach' in the title!!!!]
N.B. It is people who want a child-free hotel who will fall foul of not being clear WHICH Munamar hotel they are booking [and also those who think they are getting a bargain in a 'posh' hotel.]
I have just been through 300 traveller photos on this site and have reported very many as being the wrong location as they are NOT of the large beach-front Munamar Hotel, but of the 2 other, lower rated hotels in the chain. Most of the wrongly attributed photos are of the hotel [formerly the Club Oylem Prestige] which is BEHIND the Munamar hotel. A few of the photos are of the hotel NEXT to the Munamar [across the canal] this was formerly the Efes and now has 'Munamar' and 'Residence' in the title.
THIS IS NOT FAIR to those who are expecting to book the large hotel shown in the beach-front photos which is a 'couples only' hotel. If you want an adult only hotel you will not get this at the 'former Club Oylem Prestige!!!!
I have stayed in 2, but visited all 3 'Munamar' hotels [due to friends staying] and although the other 2 hotels in the chain are close-by and fine in their niche they are NOT the more up-market hotel which is written about in many of the Trip Advisor reviews and shown in the photos.
RULE OF THUMB:
If the photos show a large striped waterslide, rectangular pools, wood cladding to exteriors, black and white animal print furniture, zebra wall art and an entertainment stage area with bright 'sunset' backdrop this is the former OYLEM hotel [and last July was in the hands of a good manager.] This will have FAMILIES there. Last summer this had 'Beach' and 'Club' in the tile.
If the photos show a tiny circular pool, a tall narrow white building with canal/ beachfront location - this is NEXT to the original and more plush Munamar and was formerly the Efes and last summer was NOT geared to families and had 'Munamar' and 'Residence' in the title.
The carpeted coffee/cream hotel rooms and interior shots of white gallery above an atrium ARE of the MUNAMAR Hotel which is more expensive, up-market, beach-front and does NOT cater for famillies. Many rooms here have a front seaview, but some do face landwards over the pool a the back. These have a mountain view and look out onto other hotels- including the Munamar Beach Club- 'formerly Cub Oylem Prestige.'
Come on Trip Advisor- not good enough! It is fundamental- if potential holiday makers cannot get the truth and accurate information on your site why bother??????
