Well I have mixed opinions about this hotel, firstly it is really really good value, the views from the pool area and front of the hotel are excellent, the food was good, though somewhat unusual. Breakfast was nice with omelettes and hallumi cooked to order, and a huge selection of Turkish food (rightly so)
If you want pie and mash don't come here go to benidorm. For what it's worth we loved it.
Staff were very helpful, especially the waiters, one thing to consider is that if you don't finish you bottle of wine they will keep it and return to you the following evening, like they do on cruises.
The only downside was that we had a room at the rear of the hotel 319, though the room was pleasant the view was ..... Well it was a kind of wasteland/gravel car park, if you raise your head and look up at the mountains it's lovely though, the other problem is that the ac was a tad weak and we had to sleep with the door open, this means you have to listen to cars and coaches dropping people off at all hours (the gravel car park doesn't help)
The other criticism is that wifi isn't complimentary it will cost you 10tl for one day or 20tl for three days, ok it's not a fortune but it gives the impression of being somewhat tight fisted.
In short I loved the hotel, the food was good, the staff were great but next time I would stay at the front of the hotel.
Oh and the comments from other reviewers regarding the cost of drinks, yes they are in excess of the local area but they are still well below what we pay in the UK.
Hope this helps you.
