“Another fab holiday”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is our 2nd visit to the Destina this year. Stayed in May for a week and 10 days in September. We have already booked for next September for 11 nights. The view from the hotel is stunning, surrounded by mountains. It is situated up a hill, about 10 minutes walk into Hisoronu where there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. It is 10 lira in a taxi if you don't want to walk. The rooms are small but very clean and tastefully furnished in red and white. Can't comment on the breakfast because me and my husband are late risers so don't eat breakfast. If you would like an English breakfast there are plenty of places to choose from and only cost 5 lira. Exchange rate was 2.83 lira whilst we were there so that is less than £2. They do serve plenty of chicken but cooked various ways and always cooked well. Soups and salads are lovely and also plenty of sweets to choose from.

The staff at the Destina are all great, Great welcome at reception on arrival. All the staff are very pleasant and always smiling. They can't do enough for you. Murat (my Turkish son) is such a nice person, he even went with my husband outside of the hotel to watch the football. Batman deserves a mention too, really hard working.

The entertainment staff are great. Gadget is so funny. He and Gizmo organise water games but they are not pushy if you don't want to join in.

We ate out a few times and would recommend Shine indian restaurant, I had a lovely pasta dish at Pepinos in Hisoronu. There are lots of places to eat if you fancy a change from the hotel and are all very reasonably priced.

Hope this review has been of some help. The Destina is a value for money all inclusive hotel and can't wait to return next year.

Our first visit to this area. Stayed for a fortnight and can't fault it really. There is nothing wrong with the food and the staff were great. Nicely designed hotel "up the hill" from the resort so at least you had a breeze. We would happily recommend the Destina hotel as very good value for an All Inclusive holiday. Thought the entertainment was good generally ( some great dancers ), though choice of music during the day a bit in your face sometimes. Could do with coffee shop or something in the hotel - had to go elsewhere to find decent cappuccino.

Room Tip: Rooms are all a bit small really. We had one " round the Back " with lots of shade - which...

Just returned from a weeks stay at the destina...............you pay for what you get, Food ok nothing special, rooms ok, but noise in the corridors in the evening can be bad and the dog barking and howling can be a pain.

A bit far out for us and don't think we would return to this hotel again been to better hotels in Turkey.

If you are looking to go out for a nice meal try the Olive Tree bit far out from the Destina but well worth it.

Stayed at the destina 6th-18 September. Really enjoyed our stay at the destina hotel. Lovely food, great location and friendly staff. . We also had upset stomachs but it wasnt confined to only destina..We found out the problem was airbourne and lots of people from different hotels had the same problem..All the food was well cooked..The maids are very friendly and work very hard, as do all the rest of the staff and would like to thank all of them for a fantastic time.

Hubby and I and my mum and dad stayed here, for the 3rd year, for the last 2 weeks of September (into October) 2012.

As mentioned, this was our 3rd fabulous year at the Destina and it won't be our last!! This year was the best ever. The renovations to the rooms and reception that had been carried out since our 2011 visit were extensive and greatly modernised the whole feeling of this fab hotel.

Our room was lovely (smallish but AMPLE for the 2 of us - mum and dad had their own room lol) the only problem being the inconsiderate 'door-slammers' and 'screechers' who chose to completely disregard the comfort of others by banging and screaming around the corridors at 4am - NOT the fault of the hotel just the selfish individuals! However putting the spare blanket at the gap at the foot of the door helped with muffling the noise :)

The food this year was better than ever! Breakfast had a vast choice (but if you expect 'English' sausages and bacon remember this is Turkey NOT Blackpool) - pancakes cooked to order too! Lunch and dinner had a superb choice of soups and salads with at least two choices of meat at each meal - again, chicken and turkey were often served but always delicious and tender! Snack-time (if you weren't already stuffed!) was served under the restaurant area and had lovely pizza (yummy), burgers or sandwiches - made to order!

The pool bar serves local beer and spirits from 11am till 11pm then the pay-bar until 5am or so if you haven't had quite enough!! lol - the pay bar was reasonably priced too.

The staff in ALL areas of the hotel were friendly, accommodating and work damn hard! Lovely service and they couldn't do enough for you .

Entertainment in the form of Gadget and Gizmo was brilliant! Hubby's favourite poolside 'sport' was 'Surfboard basketball' LOL - great to watch even if you didn't participate :) They made you laugh and encouraged you to take part but didn't push too hard if you just wanted to relax. Turkish dancing, karaoke, quiz, Mr/Mrs Destina (good fun), bingo etc.
Gadget and Gizmo made the holiday even more fun!

Overall this is a well-managed and smoothly run hotel, with fantastic food and great entertainment - We will see you next year Destina - The Happy People's Place!
Thanks for another fabulous holiday x

I stayed in June 2012 with my partner. we had a great time, only stayed one week, wasnt enough. Didnt leave hotel for first 3 days as we had everything we needed plus we were a little worse for wear most days after being in main bar with Ozzy, Burak and Martin, great guys and always up for a laugh. Very helpful and nothing was ever too much to ask for. All staff in hotel always smiling and happy. Entertainment team (Gadget and Gizmo) do plenty of activities all day and night, never a dull moment with them around. Everywhere always clean and tidy. Rooms are a little small but why do you need a huge room if your all inclusive? Food was always lovely and well presented, im a fussy very eater and always found something i liked. Area is beautiful, and only a short taxi ride into larger resort. There are a few small bars an restaraunts within walkin distance though we only ate out twice as wasnt really any need to. Is definatly the happy peoples place. See u all next year, Tami and Dave, cant wait :)
