We went last week to this hotel,our first visit to Turkey!It was a last minute offer,so we paid 600 euros,2 adults per 7 days all inclusive regime.
My first impression was that this is an old and small hotel,the room was pretty small,but clean.
I liked the fact that the personnel was friendly,althought they didn't speak English very well(they speak German,Russian and Polski languages)!
The food was good,a lot of vegetables,musaca,barbaques,soupes,sweets and fruits.
They changed the menu every day and the food was fresh and tasty.I have to mention that we are not picky eaters and our dishes in Romania resambles with the Turkish cousine.But I think even a picky eater could find something to eat.
Cleaning service was great:they changed the sheets and towels every day.
The hotel has a superb garden where you can sit and relax after dinner.
The drinks were ok,but I hated the fact that the coffee was from a machine,instant coffee,not their traditional turkish coffee!
When we received the all inclusive programme,it was written that you can have a turkish bath&sauna for free.In fact,the sauna is free,you have to pay for the turkish bath.I asked about this thing and they said it was a misunderstanding.
We bought a trip to Alanya from our tour guide,a turkish woman named Ebru,but I think she is a gross feeder.She sold us a trip that we didn't have in our trip journal received from Tui agency.We were 4 Romanians in a bus full of polish people.The guide from the bus didn't bother to offer us many informations,but I asked some questions and he responded in one word.We paid 44 euro per person to listen to Polish language.
Ebru told us that we are going to see a golden jewellery factory ,but in fact they took us to a jewellery shop,where we were expected to buy expensive items.
We were told that after this factory visit we will take a boat and take a mediteranean bath.When I asked about the swimming they said that this is a misunderstanding.
By the way,Ebru was speaking fluently our language,so this was not a language misunderstanding,it was just lying.
Aqua Plaza had a great animation team,we played volleyball,had a bingo night,a live singing band,etc.
We even made a turkish friend,the guy from the spa center(he offers hammam programme)!He speaks English very well,he is very friendly and he gave us a lot of informations about his country and traditions.
If you want to visit Alanya or the surroundings,take a boat trip or any other trip choose a local travel agency,you get a good discount there.
