“1 star at best”
Reviewed 27 July 2011

I went with my brother and friend, both of which are uasually a good laugh. Magic hotel was so bad we couldn't even joke about it. If value for money, hygiene or relaxation are on your list of holiday requirements DO NOT book this hotel. To say this is a four star hotel is an insult. From start to finish it was sub-standard. Rooms are small and dirty. Staff are ignorant at best. The food is very poor, maybe recycled from earlier meals. Bar, well they served they cheapest of drinks and did thier best to restrict the amount of drinks they served and there was no ice dispite it being 40 degrees plus. If I continue with this review I'm going to need prozak to calm me down: Bottom line DON'T DO IT!!!!! The worst hotel I have ever stayed in........

Room Tip: Pick another hotel.

Went to this hotel for a week . we had week of hell , staff were very rude did not speak English , did not get any help from anyone were told they only cater for Russians and Germans , food was horrible nothing English,
suppose to have snacks during the day what a laugh only had 1 tray of turkish cakes at 4pm ,
Bar well what can i say as its all inclusive you would expect to get a drink 3 days they ran out of beer at 10.am wasnt back on till 7pm only other drink available was vodka or soft drinks which they ran out of daily, bar staff would only serve you if they felt like it .
rooms were filthy cleaners only came in every other day and only made the beds .
entertainment that didnt exsist was suppose to be disco at 10.pm till 4pm only if enough people asked.
pool bar consisted of a juice machine yet again ran out of juice
were not allowed to take food or drink in to hotel,
The only thing good was the bus to come home.

It's like a hooror movie, fully drunk Russians who fight every night, staff would try to get ur girlfriend into the bed, they fight with guest as well, it's like bunch of ugly looking criminals became waitres.
Make sure no expensive cloths or jeliwery left in the room, you won't see them again.
If u think about your safety please think again. If u don't get guns with you.

We arrived at the hotel around 1am we were given our rooms which were separated from our family. One room was on the ground floor one of the 1st floor and one on the second! We were given no food/drinks upon arrival and were told off for taking our own drinks into OUR room! The bar opened at 10am and shut at 22:30 EVERY day. The bar staff were awful and favoured the russians/germans/iranains over any of the English customers. Even the receptionist said the hotel did not cater for the English. We later went on to find out that the hotel had been on Watchdog which we had not been told whilst booking, there was no entertainment AT ALL and we would find ourselves eating out most of the time as the food was the same day in day out. I was here with my parents and friends we were once told to go to bed at 9:30pm! The manager of the kitchen was terrible who refused to get anything for us even when no other staff were in the kitchen! Communication was terrible and only one member of staff could speak a little English! We complained the day we got to the hotel as our rooms were filthy, mould was growing in the bathroom there was crumbs on the floor and the room smelt terrible! We later all got moved onto the same floor once ringing hayes and demanding to me moved. The pool and gym were okay but cat poo was littered around the hotel. Also kittens were on our balcony and would often roam the hotel during the middle of the night. We asked for the 'disco' that had been advertised but got told that not enough people wanted it so we wouldn't be having one this week! We were pushed in front of in the que at lunch and dinner by the other customers. Most of the residents were Turkish, Russian or German. I would not reccomend this hotel and neither would some of the staff at the hotel! There is NO night life at the hotel and you have to entertain yourself so completely defeated the objective of going ALL INCLUSIVE! Steer clear of this hotel if you except night life, entertainment, good food or even good communication! Is the worst hotel I have ever been too in my life! Will be filing a complaint asap! Also the 'free internet wifi' provided cuts out whenever it wants to and was often not available for the whole day!

Room Tip: Just steer clear of the hotel!

Im in this hotel atm. When we booked we thought wow. Good price,nice hotel. On the other hand.. Soon as me and my 19 year old boyfriend got of the bus and arrived at the hotel, my first words were, bahh.. This is horrible. Im not going to like this.so adam said, give it a chance.. We did... Next day hated it. Bar shut at half 10 so meaning you had to buy ur drinks after tht even tho we wer all incluisive!!!! None of reception spoke english apart from one hu spoke a little. Lights in corridoors were never on they had sensors, but soon as ur half way down the coridoor the lights came on which was pointles. The food was horrible. Full of russions. Pool tiny. Down stairs toilets were discusting!!@ had poo on every seat!! No lie. May been out of order but wer no sighns and were mingin. ,magic disco was on once, which was also so rubish. Music kept crashin and it was dead, didnt even serve drinks. Rooms never hardlly cleaned. Some one pooed in the shower near the pool, adam had to tell reception. Walls paper thin! Our balkini view rubish could see a dump area. Dirty water which was brown fell straight over this lovely scottish couple from the fans in the dining area. Some couple got the wrong room key and ended up walking in on people having sex! Shower kept flooding water barely hot.noo margerine unless u ask. Waiters served others b4 u, even tho u wer first. We bought a phone card didnt work, and we got no help. Took us 2days to figure it out!!... My phones dyin and i have 4 days left so ill write more then!bar Staff are lovely only good thing.

First of all, I would like to point out that we have been to Turkey many times so I do not speak without prior knowledge of the country.

We arrived at the hotel gone midnight and were shown to a room in the hotel next door - the Caner Hotel - or should I say Hovel. We were told this would be for one night only. The room was without lights in the bathroom, it was dirty, the television did not work and the door would have opened with a push - not the 4 star we booked!

The following morning we packed up and went to reception and said unless we were given the room we had booked we would be leaving. The room we were given was on the third floor and although far from 4 star it was adequate and cleaned on a daily basis and fresh towels supplied.

The food was appalling - Chicken twice a day everyday, burgers in some format most days. Fish - cold for lunch one day and fried on the Friday. One night they even fried some pasta!!!

The breakfasts had cheese rolls a couple of times and fried eggs one day. The cold meat for breakfast was covered in wasps and flies and the salads never varied from day to day - needless to say we ate out 90% of the time. The alcohol was little better - the wine was awful and the beer flat, non alcoholic beverages were served warm.

The hotel was geared up to Russians and Germans - my husband and I were the only 2 English in the hotel for several days and were only joined by 6 more just before we left.

If you can't speak any Turkish at all you have a bigh problem as the hotel staff refuse to speak any English unless you speak to them in Turkish - a few words will suffice but you must make the effort. English people should not be put in this hotel.

The resort itself is very pretty and I would not hesitate to return but NEVER to this hotel!!!!
