Stayed here last 2 weeks of August and from start to finish I was impressed. There were 4 of us all together (2 couples) and we stayed in one apartment with 2 bedrooms. The main bedroom had aircon and the other had a ceiling fan which worked fine to keep cool at night. We were self catering and there was plenty facilities in the room to use. 6 plates/bowls chopping board bread knives microwave, plug in stove with pots and pans and a fridge. There was a large bottle of water in the fridge on arrival which was helpful because we arrived in the very early hours of the morning. Only went for breakfast once in the hotel. There was a large selection of breads and fruits and scrambled eggs. For the 4 of us it came to 106tl. You can pay in cash if you want but the hotel prefer you to use the card they issue with on the first day but you can pay off the card when ever you want to. The pool was perfect temperature and was very large. Sun beds are limited so we had to get up early in order to get one. If you went down to the pool after half 10 it was unlikely that you would get one. Most evenings we took a taxi down to turunc which cost 15tl one way. We visited a restaurant called yakamoz which was right on the corner. Food was great price. Would recommend the chicken curry for 15tl comes with a freshly made pita bread. Never ate dinner at the hotel but did visit the ala carte restaurant for lunch which had lovely view while you eat and the food was great. For 2 cheese burgers with fries and 2 large soft drinks it came to 35tl which seemed more than reasonable. The staff were wonderful. Very helpful and very polite. One young lady in particular was very polite. She worked on the bar at night and always made sure we were comfortable. The bathroom in the room had a small shower but was powerful and always had hot water. There was also a hair dryer fitted which was more powerful than most that I've seen in hotels so if you have thin hair you wouldn't need to pack your own. There was lots of different activities going on during the day. Aqua gym twice a day, yoga every morning, dancing on a Saturday night and a rock climbing wall open in the evenings. There was also a kids club running up by the kids pool. Didn't really visit the kids pool but it looked great for kids with a small waterside too. There was a small shop by the reception which had everything you needed. 2.5 litre of pop cost 2.5tl. Sold Doritos and lays (walkers) crisps and any toiletries you might need in case you forgot any. There are crickets in the trees but apart from that there were no insects flying around. There were rabbits everywhere. They didn't bother anyone and they were very cute to look at. Being high up meant an amazing view of turunc and the bay. When you arrive at the hotel they give you a price list of taxis and boat trips and also the shuttle bus timetable which is really helpful to plan a day out. We had no problems at all with this hotel and already thinking about visiting again next year.
