Serena Suites
Ranked #6 of 18 Specialty Lodging in Turunc
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Beautiful location situated on a hill overlooking the town and bay. A reasonable downhill walk (10 minutes) to the town/beach however if you have small children or are slightly unfit you would need to get a taxi back; these are 10 TL at time of writing. Rooms are spacious but ours was in need of modernisation and a good clean! Room service was available each day but we had to be very insistent to have our sheets changed and new towels. Food at the hotel was of a good standard with a good choice which is lucky as the self catering facilities are a little limited! The pool is great but non swimmers will be disappointed as it is a constant 2m depth. Overall a small friendly hotel with a good atmosphere as long as you don't mind roughing it a bit.

Room Tip: Try to get a room near the lift as the stairs can be quite an effort in the heat.

My husband and I have just returned from a lovely holiday at Serena Suites in Turunc. It is basic accommodation which was clean , with a new fridge and newly refurbished bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful . We ate breakfast and several meals which were of a good standard. We would visit again . As long as you don't expect four star facilities you will enjoy the fantastic views and friendly service..

We have just returned from Turunc, where we actually stayed at the loryma, but our friends stayed at Serena, although maybe not as posh as the loryma, we spent most of our time at Serena, Sadir was superb, very entertaining with his magic tricks, he also picked us up and drove us back to the loryma, free of charge, we ate there frequently, the food and complimentary starters were lovely, I would definately stay there if only for the entertainment from Sadir and his staff, and I also loved the lift going up to all the floors, jessie sharpe

Basic but wonderful. Serdar was a great host and made us feel very special. Nothing was too much trouble. Loved his little practical jokes and magic tricks. Views fantastico, food nice and beer just what the doctor ordered.
Staff were reserved but very helpful.
Loved the quirky lift up the hillside but when it doesn't work (like when it rains) you discover how unfit you are!!!
Crazy place but will definitely go back.
And Turunc was great to. There are seats with our names on them at the Cardak restaurant by the harbour.

Room Tip: Get a balcony not a terrace.

I've holidayed in many different places in the 'developed' and 'developing' worlds. This is a pretty and imaginatively-constructed hotel and apartment complex which will not be the right place for holidaymakers who expect bland, luxury facilities, but for those who are discerning enough to want to stay somewhere with character, where there is a family atmosphere and a feeling of 'getting home' at the end of the day, this is perfect. The funicular railway serves the purpose of a lift in a more conventional building, and the little flights of stone steps which you can use instead made me think of a village-within-a-village. My children (twins aged 9) loved the railway, and we all loved the view from each level of this beautiful property, where I could have a drink in the bar and watch them swimming in the pool through the portholes in the bar/restaurant wall. Our apartment was basic but clean - and money had been spent where it mattered, for example on the beds which were comfortable and new. I don't mind a few bits of mortar missing around the skirting boards - this isn't the Ritz and it is very good value indeed. The food in the restaurant is good, and the complementary mezze which arrived each time we ate there were much appreciated. The staff were helpful and not pushy at all despite earlier reviews. I would go there again.

The hotel is looking tired, fixtures & fittings need attention & would benifit from a lick of paint & a good clean but thats typically Turkey. However the pool is a good size with plenty of sunbeds. The restaurant serves excellent meals at very reasonable prices. The manager looked after us very well, arranging car hire etc & nothing was too much trouble. The lift was quirky & a godsend being as the hotel is so high up. But the veiws from our balcony, the pool & the restaurant are to die for and made up for anything negative. Overall we had a fabulous holiday & would definatly go back to the serena suites.
