Stayed at the hotel 16th to 23rd October as a cheap get away with my boyfriend and 2 of our friends, we arrived quite late at night so had missed dinner, went straight to the bar and then the disco, the music was really loud but had all different types of music to suit each nationality only thing that bugged me was they played Gangnam style 3 times that night, disco finished and we went to try and find some food and drink as read it was 24hrs all inc, it's not.
Woke up in the morning boiling hot as wasn't told you needed to have the door shut then press the aircon button for it to work, found this out after 2 nights when a guest told us and the mini bar hadn't been stocked so had no water.
Went down for breakfast, not much choice cooked wise mainly eggs.
Ended up going to the pool bar to get some water and sit by the pool, plenty of seats available and was clean.
Pool was freezing the sea was actually warmer. If you have sea shoes take them as the beach is stoney you can get in the sea via the pier before it got washed away but a storm that hit on day 5 of our holiday. We had 4 days of 28-30 degree sunshine and 3 days of rain, thunder and lightning.
The snack bar is very basic and food wasn't very warm as mentioned before.
Main restaurant was ok nothing special but ate something every night.
Personally I thought the drinks were very strong as I got pretty drunk most nights and the bar staff were friendly to us and joined in with us having a laugh. Their main 2nd language is Russian so some don't understand much English.
There was a lot of English at the hotel when we was there and also a mix of Russians, Norwegians, polish and a few from other European countries.
The room was good, plenty of space, cleaned daily and lovely sea view.
Outside the hotel there isn't really anything other than a few supermarkets however you can hale down buses to take you to kemer or antalya for about 3tlira.
3 of us used the spa during our stay to have a Turkish bath, was nice however if you want to go on a trip out the hotel you will get it cheaper.
The market at the hotel was a nice change to the evening however they tend to sell the same thing such as fake polo shirts, jumpers and belts. Also they will tell you a stupid price at first. I was told 70 lira for a Pashmina scarf I told him when I was in antalya last I got one for 20 so we settled on 25tlira.
Personally if you have more cash go to a different hotel and resort, I stayed at the titanic in Lara beach last year and it was the most amazing hotel I have stayed in but it comes at a cost.
Entertainment at the hotel was very poor we went to the amphitheatre one night and didn't go back as the performance was rubbish and was based on adults rather than kids.
Kids will get bored at this hotel so I wouldn't recommend to families.
Like I said before if your after something cheap and you can make your holiday what you want to then give it a go, if not go somewhere else and spend a bit more money.
