“Return visit”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I stayed here for three weeks in May on a self-catering basis. I previously stayed in September and thought it was reasonable value for money for a cheap holiday, but this time I only paid half as much! The owners have taken on board the negative comments from guests last year and made some much needed improvements. The accommodation is basic but spacious and clean. There is now a well qualified chef and the restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices. Also the spa/Turkish bath facilities have been taken over by a new husband and wife team, who seem much better qualified and organised compared to last year. A new water flume/slide has been installed which the young families were enjoying. So if you want a cheap holiday in a really good location - 10 minutes to beach, handy shops and bars - Melissa Gardens will suit you well.

We have just recent returned and had a wonderful fortnight. The staff are friendly and nothing to much trouble. Accomidation is clean and tidy and maintained daily. Food is of high standards. The overall holiday was fantastic and we will be returning again. overall the value for money is 100% although the local shops for soveneirs can be a bit expensive but a trip to Manavgat on the bus for a cost of 3 TL is advised as prices are lower and can be haggled....bus takes approx 25/30 mins.

The Good: the room size was exceptionally large, the pool & slide were very good, kept clean & tidy. The food is very good value and of a very high standard. 2 for 1 cocktail at 9pm were great value. The chef and Shahid the waiter were absolutely lovely. And of course Melisa the golden retriever who we shared our breakfast with.

The Bad: dated decor in the rooms, exterior poorly maintained which does not enhance its overall appearance.

The Ugly: The worst mould in a bathroom i have ever seen in 40 year of travelling - disgusting. Broken glass shower screen (extremely dangerous) and glass in the door panels also broken.
The cleaning lady who didn't change the towels or sheets in 5 days and didn't clean the bathroom in our entire stay!

Finally we accept it is very good value for money and we would have rated it a lot higher if the room had been cleaned and maintained properly

We were Melissa Garden in late April 2014 and we really liked it. Great food, friendly staff, good location (beach 300m,side old town 2,5km). Pool area is great, we had lots of fun with the slide =).
We try to get there sometime again

We were a bit skeptical at first but once we had a chance to see the staff and experience the food we were surprised. The staff are so welcoming and jolly, Shahid the bartender, Akeef the photographer, and the receptionist all are fantastic. Thank you all for a great time x.

Went here in July with my boyfriend first holiday together, wasn't due to stay at this hotel but so glad we did! Value for money. Friendly staff. Good food. Excellent entertainment and 2 for 1 happy hour with cocktails! Who would say no. Would go back :)
