“Great Hotel In The Middle Of Nowhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2007

Just returned from a week in Turkey, The hotel we had originally booked had closed due to bankruptcy and we got sent here without any notice excepted when we landed at the airport.

On arrival we thought where are they taking us, it’s in the middle of nowhere, there was only 2 supermarkets and 1 restaurant outside the hotel. Once at reception we checked in they were very helpful. The porters took our luggage to our rooms and showed us the rooms and hotel facilities.

THE ROOMS! Where to start. Very basic, Air con not cold only cool even leaving it on all day and night it still did not feel like it worked to the correct temp. Would call the room more like a 2* room except with a fan! We had a double bed and single there was still a bit of room to move around, but not much. There was no balcony only a window which had mosquito netting on. There was also a TV with no English channels on, an empty mini fridge for you to fill yourself, which if you do don’t use the hotel supermarket as it is expensive and you would be better buying from the 2 outside the complex. The bathroom again was basic, NO PLUG in the sink so take your own with you. There was always hot water when ever you wanted it. The cleaners were in every single day of our holiday with clean sheets and towels even if you had hung your towels up to use again they would change them.

THE POOL was very nice, a little tip get up early if you want a sun bed, people were putting towels out the night before after the bar had closed. Pool area was always clean, no litter of plastic glasses laying around was plenty of staff on hand making sure it was clean. The pool over looked the sea so like me if you don’t like the beach you can lay by the pool and see the sea. A few steps from the pool was the beach again was very clean with no little. The hotel had it’s own jetty with pool style steps into the see, so no nasty sandy feet . The sun-beds are free to use at the pool and beach but if you do want a mattress you can get one from the hotel supermarket for 2TYL a day.

THE FOOD. There is only one restaurant in the hotel and one beach side snack bar. The main restaurant had a balcony running round the outside with tables on it so you could enjoy the view while eating only problem with this is that all the doors are open and the little bit of air con that they had did not make any dent in the temp, so was quite warm inside while eating. The food itself was of good standard, if you are a picky eater you could still find something to eat even if it’s just salad or soup with fresh bread. Snack bar served food form 11AM till 5PM which was Hamburger (More like Kebab Burger), Chips and a local cheese style toasty come pancake thing was ok.

ENTERTAINMENT. They hotel had it’s own team which did there very best on what I would call a tight budget for such a big complex. It started form 9.30AM with a break for lunch and then all the way through till 11PM. With the normal pool games and beach games during the day. And your standard mime shows on an evening.

BARS. The hotel has one main bar at the pool area which is open all day long. Not enough staff at all and sometimes you would queue for 5 Min’s. Every thing was served in plastic glasses except at the start of the evening when you could get a beer in a real glass, if that happens keep it for the whole night they run out quick and don’t use them again till the next night. They use the main brand of drinks like Fanta, Sprite & Coke, but its not very cold and they don’t like giving you ice, think it’s because they have to buy it in. Local sprits Vodka, Gin, Brandy, Whiskey & Raki so get a liking for at least one before you go.

All in all we had a fantastic holiday even though we had not booked this hotel. If you are looking for a holiday without the hassle this is for you. With some excellent view’s of the coast and even the island of Kos. You will not spend a penny unless you leave, which there is no need to if you don’t want to. There was enough to keep the 2 Teenager’s we had with us entertained. Think it had something to do with the good looking entertainment bloke, but least she wasn’t asking for money.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone that asks and would return again ourselves.

They are planning to upgrade the hotel for the next season, with balcony’s, 2 extra restaurants, 24Hr all inclusive and a extra pool with slides.

The rooms are so dirty that you cannot walk on the floor. it is slippery and you risk breaking your neck. the bathroom is the same. For seven days not once did they clean it.
The beach is quite nice but it hardly compensates for the poor quality of the lodging. The food variety is ok, but I wouldn't be on its freshness.
Our conclusion: one more destionation to avoid from now on.
