The hotel has changed ownership since our last visit, but it is generally still the same excellent hotel with good service. As our children have grown up, my wife and I are able to come here during term time which means it is quite a bit cheaper and the weather is hot (by UK standards) but not unbearably hot as Antalya gets in summer (35C ! We’d never go outside.)
The hotel is still very stylish and the rooms are big and well laid out – all with big bed, sofa, stools and big balconies with a large double sunbed on it.
We spent most days down by the pool and after a couple of days we could just ask the waiters for “our usual.” The sunbeds (actually big mattresses) with towelling covers and huge cushions are very comfortable arranged in rows with an umbrella little drinks table between each pair of beds. You can move the mattress around to stay in the shade or in the sun. There’s a covered area by the bar where you can sit at regular tables if you want to eat. (You can have food at your bed – served on big cushioned trays.)
We preferred the pool to the beach. The beach is pebbled and the water gets very deep very quickly. The sunbeds here are the usual plastic framed beds with a fairly thin plastic coated mattress, so you’ll want to lie on a towel. Collect your towels before you leave the pool area on your way to the beach. I think you can still get waiter service for food and drinks from the beach bar, but we didn’t spend much time there.
However, close up the bathrooms, floors and finishes are beginning to show their age. Similarly, the paint or finish in the pool is beginning to peel and we never found an umbrella with a waiter call button that worked. I understand that over the winter season 2013/14 they will be refurbishing the rooms. We were told this would be done a floor at a time or maybe a wing at a time – so the hotel will still be open and guests shouldn’t be affected.
The spa seems to have been outsourced, so you pay per visit and can't charge it to the room. To me it seems quite expensive - typically EUR 60 for 1/2 session, but I have no idea what would be a good price. Thomas Cook offer their own hammam/massage deals which are cheaper, but I wouldn't want be driven 30mins each way to get to their hammam.
