I came back from the Club Tarhan Hotel yesterday. Upon arrival, the first impressions aren't good as you turn into an old, grubby street that says Club Tarhan above it. This is not the actual resort as you turn right to face the real entrance which looks amazing. The lobby is the first place you enter to check in. The lobby is amazing, I will upload some pictures for you to view. The grounds of the resort are well looked after and very pretty. During our time there they were still replenishing the hotel, re-painting here and there, gardening and we even saw the exterminator go round each room to banish the bugs!
The pools are lovely, they over look the sea. The beach is quite nice too, although it is a handmade beach and the sand is very rubbley so we didn't spend much time here. The water sports were non existent, but i think this is due to the fact that we came early season.
The apartments are very basic, but they are very clean and the maid comes everyday. (who spends all day in their room anyway).
The animation team are AMAZING and they really made our holiday such a laugh! They play games during the day that you can join, such as archery, darts, water sports (in the pool) which my boyfriend enjoyed.. (I much prefer to read a book and sunbath :p)
Altinkum is around a 40min trip on the bus which pulls up right outside the resort. DO NOT make the mistake we made of getting a taxi because it is a complete rip off (41Lira) it is 2LIRA on the bus and it takes you anywhere you want to go and you get to see the town and the area during the trip.
I would advise you to have a walk around the big market on a Saturday, altough the Turks are very annoying pulling you into each shop and shouting at you when you dont want to buy!
Overall i recommend the resort, it is a lovely place and they are improving it every day. The people who stay at the resort range from ages of 18 - 88, mostly couples of small families, I wouldn't advise it for anyone who wants the party and nightlife.
The only downside (for us) was the food, and mostly because they couldn't keep it warm! Other than this we have no complaints at all! enjoy :) xxx
p.s get the Turkish bath in the hotel, it is amazing :)
