After reading all the excellent reviews on here we felt sure we wouldn't be dissapointed!
The welcome we recieved was warm & friendly. The friendliness continued throughout our holiday from the majority of the staff, however it turned a little frosty from one particular member of staff after the first week of eating out every night apart from the Turkish bbq & after declining sunday roast!
Our apartment was basic which is what we expected although a little tired & in need of a revamp. I can't honestly say it was clean as it most certainly wasn't, there were smears of toothpaste or something similar on the bathroom walls and not just a little bit, the bathroom generally was rather grubby all over as was the bedroom furniture, there were cobwebs hanging from the ceiling in the living area and a couple of sticky labels stuck to the floor all of which remained for the duration of our stay, maybe all silly things but never the less they don't create a good impression. We also had water dripping down from the bathroom ceiling which we think was coming from the waste pipe above. Fortunately we don't go on holiday to sit in our apartment so we didn't let these things spoil it for us but I do feel that for the money we paid for this holiday the accomodation could have been better. Maybe we were just unlucky with our apartment and all the rest are of a better standard.
The Turkish bbq night consisted of a Micheal Jackson act, break dancers, a robot and a belly dancer, the belly dancer was at least authentic but we were expecting it all to be authenticly turkish so a little dissapointing really. The Turkish night was followed by upset tummy's for all of us, obviously we can't be sure it was the bbq that did it but it was very coincidental!
The pool area was ok but it was a bit crammed and we could have done without the blaring music all day.
Our favourite restaurant was Hanedan which served excellent turkish food, the owner & staff were very friendly & welcoming and gave an all round excellent service. Another couple of restaurants that we found to be very good were Wayside and Winehouse.
All in all we made the best of it & had a nice holiday. but wouldn't be tempted to return.
