The reviews from other contributors are pretty fair and accurate. The accommodation is great, air con, LG flat screen TVs, jacuzzi and very clean. Room sizes aren't overly generous but perfectly adiquate. Only criticism is that the walls are very thin and you can hear your neighbours quite easily, and there were no plug sockets in the kitchen so we had to boil a kettle and use a toaster on the floor by the TV!
The facilities on site were good, though there was not a lot promotion of the watersports available. The shop was pretty poor. All fruit and veg was pre packed into 6 and there was no meat other than sliced fake ham (being a Muslim country there was very little pork) However, there were only 2 of us staying at the resort, we decided to not go to a supermarket and to make do with what we could find in the shop. If there had been more of us we would have made the trip to a supermarket.
We ate at the restaurant a few times. The management was shambolic and there seemed to be a total lack of communication between the chef and waiters. There was a buffet every night which was very over priced and not great quality. We did give feedback to the reception and they assured us that they were making changes and bringing in experienced staff to deal with the matter. Things did improve towards the end of the week and they reduced the price of the buffet. We ate at the 'shack' along the beach a lot. The BBQ fish was the best.
We did a lot of the boat trips that were arranged. Captain Richard was very friendly and a great host. The 'Lazy Day' boat rip was exactly that, and there were stops a lots of secluded bays that were perfect for snorkeling.
The local towns of Akbuk and Altinkum are pleasent enough and have the usual fakes stalls and restaurants serving English Breakfasts, but if that is not your thing then you will have to venture a bit further afield to experience genuine Turkish hospitality and cuisine.
Overall there are still some issues that need to be resolved at the resort. A snack bar that serves cheaper and quicker food, more fresh food selection in the shop and better use of space in the leisure areas.
