This hotel is 6-7 Km away from the attractive harbour and old town so be prepared for a taxi ride which will cost around £7.
There is nothing of interest in the immediate surroundings of the hotel apart from a stony beach.
We arrived during a severe storm which left a lot of debris lying around the next day.
After spending the morning exploring the lovely old town we visited the Antalya Archaeological Museum which was spectacular.
The hotel has an unusual lobby design, all 12 floors are visible from within because they encircle the foyer. There is live music in the evenings before and during dinner which means the sound travels upwards into the rooms but it doesn't go on too late.
Rooms nearly all face the sea and are a bit old-fashioned and the bathroom is not fitted out well.
Clean and comfortable bed. The waiting staff are poorly trained, make mistakes and don't know basic English but the managers are very good and professional and lots of them around!
The evening buffet such an endless choice of delicious soups and roasted vegetables, salads, just one spoonful of each had your plate overflowing in no time, leaving not much room left for all the
hot food and plenty of lovely desserts.
During the afternoon while sitting in the foyer there was a selection of free snacks to sample and I must say they were Gourmet standard in flavour and freshness. What a lovely touch.
We ordered home- made hamburger and chips for lunch at the bar and that was very well made too.
