We visited this hotel at the end of April and had a wonderful time. Here's our experience of the hotel.

The hotel is much smaller then your average all inclusive resort (only 215 rooms), but this means that the staff really make more of an effort and you get to know them personally. It has a mix of clientele from all over Europe (when we were there there, we saw people from Germany, Russia, France, Finland, Denmark, Poland and who knows where else). The only downside to this is that the staff have to learn quite a few languages so their English is limited (one or two speak none) but they always make an effort when they hear you are from England and we never had any problems communicating with them.

However not all of the guests appreciated this. We actually witnessed guests from England shouting at the staff because they were "insulted" by the fact the staff didn't speak fluent english. We didn't agree, the staff really made an effort with us!

What do I mean when I say they make an effort? We had staff saving tables for us, remembering us by name, talking to us about the football, assuring us we could ask them any questions we may have about the area, making roses out of napkins for the girls, etc. I really have never been to a hotel where the staff make such an effort.

Now for the food. We found that the buffet had different food each and every day. There was always a good selection, I really don't see how anyone could go hungry. In-between the there main meals, you can go to the grill on the beach for hamburger and chips, a little hut for authentic turkish pancakes with various toppings or pasta dishes at the poolside (all made fresh while you wait, and to your liking). You also get a voucher for one night free in the A La Carte restaurant which is a real treat, the staff really work hard to make this something special.

The drinks too were of good quality. As is usual with all inclusive, it is extra for imported drinks. However there is a good selection of branded soft drinks (Fanta, Sprite, Coca-Cola, fruit juice, etc) and lots of choice for alcoholic drinks (about 10 cocktails, brandy, beer, wine, vodka, irish cream, gin, etc) all part of all inclusive. To say the servings are generous is an understatement. If you ask for a brandy and coke, they will give you half a glass of brandy, topped up with coke (unless you ask otherwise). There are also coffee machines, water coolers and juice machines dotted around the hotel and poolside so that a refreshing drink is never far away.

The hotel is quite modern but has an appealing Turkish feel. The cleaners must have OCD because they clean from morning till night (an example of this is the public toilets that are cleaned hourly). There are signs of them constantly maintaining and upgrading the hotel which is nice to see. We never had any problems getting a sun bed, food or service at the bar.

There is also a beautiful garden that you walk through to get to the beach, complete with it's own bar, hammocks and shady palm trees, a nice place if you are looking for somewhere quiet.

The hotel is about a two hour transfer from Antalya Airport. We booked a private transfer as to get to it, you have to pass through Side and Alanya so if it is a coach transfer, you may be one of the last to be dropped off.

It's located in Kargicak which is a lot smaller and quieter then Alanya (which we liked). This means you aren't wedged between two huge hotels as you would be if you chose a hotel in Alanya or Side. There is a small 'mall' next to the hotel with a grocery shop, pharmacy and a few shops selling clothes and souvenirs. There is a regular bus service that stops outside of the hotel every few minutes and will take you to Mohametla Centro (a nice little town centre full of shops that is only 1km away) for 1 lira or Alanya for 2 lira.

Most things are included in this hotel, however as an earlier reviewer alluded to, there is an extra charge for ice cream (except in the a la carte restaurant) but to be honest, unless you have kids, I don't know how you would have room for it after all the other all inclusive.

The spa is also a nice touch. They have a well maintained indoor pool, sauna and hamaam (turkish bath) which are all free to use. You can book a full body massage for 40 lira (about £12) which the girls rated quite highly.

If I had to pick bad points, it is a shame that there isn't much turkish entertainment (in the evenings they did various different animation program including Karaoke, a Magic Show, Miss Dinler, Bingo, etc) but that is being really picky.

Overall it is a great hotel. The photos here do not do it justice! It is 5* by turkish standards, but I don't see how you could get a nicer hotel without paying a lot more, even in Turkey. If you are looking for a hotel in the middle of a night club district where everyone speaks english, then this isn't for you. But if you are looking for a nice hotel where the staff make an effort and the food and drink is great, then try this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a room facing the front of the hotel that gave beautiful views of the beach and caught the sun on the balcony each afternoon/evening.

We are a British family of 4, and we visited the Dinler for 2 weeks in July 2013. We all thought it was great. The staff were friendly, the food was good, with a vast selection to suit most people and the hotel itself is immaculately clean. There was only a small handful of British family's there as the vast majority of holiday makers were Russian and German, but this did not put us off at all. The Hotel had a great animation team, which meant there was always something to do, not just for the children but also for the parents. The Hotel has its own private beach which is connected via a small subway, so access is easy. Overall we really enjoyed it and have recently booked another 2 weeks in August.

Dinler hotel is very good.
Nice personal work in hotel.
A lot of food, which is good and tasty. We like fish, meat not always tasty.
Alcohol drinks good too.
Not far away from Alanya city center. From hotel you will pick up bus, which go frought hotel 15-20 minutes. Cost 2 dolar per person in one way.
The best words for this hotel.

Room Tip: All of room is good.

It was a nice place and hotel was very clean. The entertainment could be done more in English to accomodate for non German & Russian speakers but overall everything was enjoyable and staff were friendly & helpful.

Not many BRITISH BOOK HERE wonder why? This is not a 5 star hotel, some who thinks it is needs to look else where or compare other destinations to this to voice their opinion. The drinks are watered down WHY? Im not a drinker but even the sprite tasted of sterelizing fluid. THE FOOD WAS OF POOR QUALITY mixed grill was liver lol. BEACH SNACKS, NANN BREAD WITH CHOICE OF 3 FILLINGS, OR BURGERS, HOT DOGS . Beach towels changed at 1 euro per change? NO FREE ICE CREAM FOR KIDS. No Iron, no kettle in room FREE WI FI thats a laugh, GOOD POINTS nice staff, clean rooms, IF YOU WANT A BUDGET HOLIDAY THEN THE DINLER IS FOR YOU.

Room Tip: Book for mountain view, its quieter.
