Yes, but I would need 1 room for me and 1 for the person holding the gun to my head!
Having been moved from the hotel we originally booked, 2 days prior to departure we found ourselves checking into the Harrington Park Resort in Antalya. A resort it is not. This hotel can only be described as a city centre hotel which is mainly used as a stop gap for tourists who are bused in and out each day - don't try and get into the lift between 5pm and 6pm!
On a 10 day holiday, we were the longest serving (and suffering) residents at the hotel. Whilst the reception area is quite nice and the rooms are fairly new, they are the only positives I can offer. The hotel overlooks a very busy main road followed by a very pebbly beach. There are no balconies to speak of either. There are 2 swimming pools next to each other, 1 for women only (?) and 1 for men and women to use. Beach towells are hard to come by and change location each day so we played hunt the towell person every day after breakfast which wore thin in the end!
The food is very samey and being brits, we enjoy a glass of wine with dinner. The wine ran out on day 3 and we were told we could buy our own in the supermarket and bring it in - a 5 star hotel! Really?! This was resolved however in the end. They advertise 4 a la carte restaurants but none of them were open. There is no entertainment at all apart from the traffic on the main road. The bar staff were unwilling to offer table service, despite the fact that they weren't busy. Eventually they came round to the idea but only when they received a tip! Everyone and everything in this hotel is coin operated. From the gym (next to sauna and with no air conditioning) down to the cushions for the sun beds on the beach! Having booked an all inclusive holiday and to end up at this hotel on full board but paying for everything else was a bit of a shock! Having been to Bodrum on a number of occasions, I would definitely stick to this area of Turkey in the future. There is a much nicer atmosphere, the staff are much better and luxory actually means luxory and I hate to say but there is also a nicer standard of guest!
If anyone suggests a stay at the Harrington Park resort to you, don't do it!
