We booked our holiday very last minute and didn't do too much research into it...we wish we had!
We were the only English people on the resort with everyone else being German or Russian.
The wakeup call around the pool in the morning was in German and all of the activities and music were in German or Russian.
This made it really difficult to communicate with anyone. The reception staff spoke very little English, so we were on our own to figure out what to do.
The guy in the hotel shop did speak English and he helped us book a taxi to go and get cash, as the hotel did not have a cash machine.
The food wasn't good. None of it was labelled, so you just needed to give it a go. The 8 hot bain maries were always warm and never hot...no matter what time you went for food.
On the bright side if you walk five minutes from the hotel there is a beach. We did ask how close a beach was when we arrived and the reception staff must not have understood the question, as they told us we needed to get a taxi and it was quite far away.
It isn't far away at all...we found out by google earthing the hotel ourselves, five days into the holiday...so frustrating!!!
There is a harbour at the bottom of the complex which is part of the hotel, but the beach part is the neighbouring hotels beach...we were told to get off by the security.
The rooms were clean though and we were lucky to stay on the very top floor in the new building.
You can probably guess that the tv in the room had no English channels, so take a good book!!
Overall an alienating visit to Turkey with no local culture at this hotel at all!!
