Just returned from a two week holiday at this hotel. I picked a 4* hotel as I'm aware of juts how poor some all inclusive hotels can be at lower ratings. Having said that, there is no way this hotel is 4* - more like 2-3 at the most.
The hotel itself has a great, spacious entrance, and so do the landing areas on each floor. My room was pretty big - no complaints. TV was old with zero channels of any worth, and the air conditioning system was ancient. Bathroom was nice, with a decent shower, and overall the room was pretty clean.
Staff were generally friendly - no complaints. Entertainment was great for families etc - but pretty poor - lots of staff wearing 'Crazy Summer' t-shirts and shouting over Black Eyed Peas/Gangham Style by the pool and little else.
None of the above should put you off - its not bad - I'd say a 6/10. But what lets it down TERRIBLY is the food. Absolutely disgusting is putting it mildly. I was really looking forward to some decent Turkish food - but didn't experience it once in the hotel. Lots of processed food, lots of bland dishes - two menu items that stood out for me were "Chicken in Basic Sauce' , and 'Chicken in Spies (spice)'. Awful. 'Turkey Kebab' sounds promising but was just turkey with peas, and gravy. And that was served every day x 2.
identical menus every single day, with lunch also the same as dinner. The reviewers saying 'its Turkish authentic food' don't know what they are talking about - you can go to a multitude of restaurants nearby and experience amazing Turkish kebabs etc, but not here. Just to give you an idea - chicken, processed (frozen) meatballs (that are actually flat), chips, rice, overcooked veg - all horrible. It doesn't actually sound that bad until you try it. The only thing Id recommend is getting an omlette in the morning as they are cooked to order in front of you by a chef who was both good, and a decent bloke as well.
All in all it's not bad, but if you are booking this because of eh all-inclusive food, I wouldnt waste your money.
