To be honest, four out of five is generous - I'd like to go for 3.5 out of five but trip advisor won't let me!
Anyway, overall this hotel was nice - the staff are very friendly and it's very clean but there are a lot of niggles.
First the good stuff - the food was nice and because there was outside space it didn't feel too
Our room was small but nice and we faced back to the mountain, so no noise from the road. We had the doors shut and we couldn't hear the call to prayer in the early morning at all. The pool was lovely (but cold) and the kids pool was great. The slides were separate and that was good, we popped down there a few times a day, but we spent most of the time at the upper pool. The staff were very friendly and pleasant.
Downsides. The main downside for me was the beach, which isn't the hotels' fault - there's a shelf about a metre in and it then gets very deep, so was unsuitable for the kids. Very disappointing.
There were no free ice creams, which was annoying, but the ice creams that were there were very nice (1euro each). The wine was awful too.
I had specifically asked if there was mini club before we got there and was told there was, but it wasn't true - there was face painting in the afternoon (pointless, as the kids got immediately back into the pool) and a half hearted mini disco at night but the guys (who were totally sweeties) just didn't seem to have the energy - probably because it was the end of the season.
The evening entertainment was pretty darned shocking and finished very early. Actually, the finishing early bit was a blessing...
Final thing. This hotel is really far from town. We didn't care because we'd come for a week of pool and sleep, but a lot of people seemed surprised by this. It's probably 20 - 25 minutes from Alanya.
Overall, would we go back? Probably not, because of the beach. But we had a brilliant holiday, determined not to let the niggles spoil it for us.
