Halikarya Hotel

Hi, just wondered if anyone had stayed at this hotel. I have checked the few reviews available but would like more information, particularly regarding the rooms, if it is possible.

This hotel was the worst hotel I have ever seen in my life and shouldn't have even been open! The room we stayed in was disgusting, it had dirty sheets, sick down the toilet and a shower you couldn't even use! Our balcony was the dog’s toilet and the pool didn’t look like you wanted to wash your feet in it! We moved straight away after the rep said he was not going to help us, along with another couple and we also met a few other people that had moved a couple of days after. We did not get a refund and they did not want to help us, we ended up paying for 2 hotels!

İ'm not familiar with this hotel so can't comment on your reported condition.İ must ask though,after the rep said they would not move you,did you ask to speak to their superior in the main resort office?Before leaving did you take photographs to back up your claims?İf the condition was so bad then they really should of moved you.İf you have some proof then go to your travel agent and complain and if necessary contact ABTA to lodge a formal complaint.İf you're willing to go the round then you could take them to court to claim back your money for second hotel,but you will need to be able to prove that the hotel really was that bad.

my sister in law stayed here in june for a week, she said the rooms were basic and had to change room when she got there because the room they gave her first the bathroom was pretty bad, but she stayed a week there on her own. You have to walk thro the divan restaurant (lovely restaurant and staff) to get to this hotel from the front. It is right on the beach by the mosque. I dont think she used the pool as been right on the beach. She said she would not stay there again but it was very cheap and you get what you pay for..Think mostly turkish people stay here as she was the only english person there that is why there are not many reviews. I will ring her later and see if she can add anything to this. But i dont think it was as bad as the earlier review or she would not have stayed the week. I am staying in the toloman hotelwhich we have stayed before, in august which is more expensive but as i said earlier you get what you pay for.

The Halikarya has now renamed itself "Blue Bay", in response to negative criticism. In fairness, it has been refurbished and it now looks a whole lot nicer than it did when I stayed there in 2008.

Still, it would not be my first choice for a place to stay in Bitez.

Please try The Hotel Blue Bay. You will definetely change your mind. The Blue Bay is now very clean and has most delecious foods in town.
