Have just returned home from Green Park Apartments after an 11 Night stay (18th September to 29th September 2012). Feel that tour operators should advise that the Alanya is aimed at mainly the Scandinavian market and the local shops, restaurant and hotel staff offer a better service to those from these countries. This area of Turkey is a lot more expensive than other parts of Turkey.
The hotel its self is located on main road which is very noisy and is also opposite the police station and if you have a room that overlooks this there is a lot of noise of a nighttime it is currently undergoing building works which start around 7am we were not advised of any construction works when we booked. The bar in the hotel closes at midnight each night and there is entertainment only one night a week (Thursday) by the end of your holiday you will know all the music that is played as they only have 3 or 4 CD's which are played on a loop. The hotel staff offer various of levels of service with some being more friendly and helpful than others the bar/restaurant/deputy manager Ivan tends to have his favorites in general if you can speak German, Norwegian, Swedish,Finish or Dutch you should get on fine. Maids are very good and friendly. The hotel manager likes to think he is god stand up to him and he will back down. We requested a low level room as my wife has a fear of heights and my son has ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome on the first we were places on the 7th Floor of the annex block to the main hotel the lift cut out as we reached the top floor with the lights going off and the door locking shut the problem was soon resolved but caused no end of problems. First thing the next morning we requested to be moved and reported the lift issue the manager advised us that we would have to wait 3 days and just ignored the matter regarding the lift once we threatened to take the matter up with the rep we were immediately found another room on the 3rd floor of the main hotel. Last day check out this has to be done by midday but you can pay 40tl to keep the room until 4pm however as the pick up times to the airport range from 8pm to midnight you still have a long time with your luggage left in the reception area and no where to change or shower after 4pm if you have not kept your room on. In summary an average 3 star hotel with some good points.
Beach is about a 20 t0 25 minutes walk and the harbor area is about 30 to 35 minutes away this were you will find the main bazaar and shopping area along with the nightlife. A bus or taxi can be taken to get to both areas.
Trips we booked a Turkish bath on our second day with the rep and all was going well until we wanted to return to the hotel and had to wait 90 minutes for transport to be arranged . When taking the matter up with her she said that she would report the matter and get back to us if I get an answer I will update this review.
Having been to other parts of Turkey we will not be returning to Alanya again.
