Found it difficult to score this hotel because, if I was marking on the facilities, it would be higher.
However, if marking on most of the staff, food & drink, it would be a lot lower.
Two staff members stood out, young fella in the Reception bar and the big fella who worked in the pool & beach bars. Both very cheerful and willing to laugh.
The rest of the staff, including the management, especially the guy on charge of the kitchen and restaurant, were rude and ignorant!
The food was terrible with limited choice.
- Breakfast was boiled eggs, toast, jam, cheese and salad!
- Lunch was regurgitated from the night before in another guise.
- Evening meal was just a load of slop that was cold.
Oh … and the Russians get everything first. They pile it on plates then leave it in the middle of the tables to be thrown out when they don't eat it! Such a waste!!
The bottled drinks available under the all-inclusive consisted of 1 bottle of vodka and 1 bottle of gin which travelled between bars as they opened and closed. The gin lasted all week because no-one drank it but the vodka, once used, took anything up to an hour to replace by which time the all-inclusive had finished and we had to pay for it! Oh, and it was watered down. Probably the time it took to replace it was when the bottle was being refilled. Absolutely disgusting!
The rooms were basic fair for Turkey but comfortable. The crooked cupboard door to the mini-bar didn't really spoil the room and the sea view was gorgeous.
The Turkish Bath and massage was excellent and the two girls were very good at their jobs.
The pool area was good and well looked after. The water slide was enjoyed by most people.
On the whole, we enjoyed the holiday despite the staff and food but wouldn't go back here again.
