As stated by others, the views are superb. I found the staff very friendly. The pool is good and there is a pool bar that serves good food. Ther are two pools, one indoor and one outdoor. The hotel provides a free shuttle bus but this ends a little after 6 pm and so you will need to orderr a taxi. These arrive within 5 minutes and will cost you just over £4. Turnuc is a relatively quiet resort that offeres some fine bars, good food, and it is great to swim in the sea. I recommend 'Korfez' bar. It is very friendly and they have a shower that you can use if you buy a drink. My son recommends m48 bar for younger people! You can walk to Turnc but it is half way down a mountain and there is no footpath; added to this the cars tend to go wide at sharp corners and so I would not recommend walking (especially if you have children).
The breakfast is o.k. but nothing special. We found the evening meals very good, with ample choice. Much of the produce is grown locally and some is obtained form the hotel's own farm. The staff serving in the restaurant are kind and efficient. You are given a Loryma card to pay for all of your drinks and this saves using cash and avoids lots of tips.
There are many free keep fit options such a Nordic walking and aquafit. You can also book and pay for other activities such as diving. I would recommend the boat trip which is very good value with lots of excellent swimming, good food and all drinks included.
The room that we had was clean but I felt that the fridge was not sufficiently cold. Also, the soffa bed in the lounge/bedroom was very uncomfortable and when we arrived there were no sheets and pillows for the spare bed (we gave the room with the air conditioning to our son!). Also, the lounge/bedroom was hot at night with just an overhead fan. We had a lovely view from our balcony and the grounds are well-planted.
Overall, we had a very good, relaxing stay and I would highly recommend this hotel.
