“Questionable ethics in reservation procedures - This hotel may not honor your reservation!”
Reviewed 1 August 2010

I was going to review this hotel for a small group travel agency while traveling with a group of friends. We reserved two rooms for 5 people 3 months in advance for 1 night. The reservation was made and confirmed. Four days before arrival we received an email canceling our reservation due to 'overbooking' and the hotel DID NOT offer any help with finding us an alternative. It created a major problem for us in Side (4 days before arrival), where good options are hard to come by in the summer months. Our further correspondence to the hotel was not answered. Clearly, we were bumped in favor of someone who booked for a longer stay later, so the hotel could make more more profit. Good hotels never do this, but if they do, they always find you another accommodation nearby in the same category. So beware before you book!

Stayed July 2010, travelled on business

Safari Suit Hotel excist since 7 years and we can't honestly accept one review like this. Since 7 year's we have had a lot of tourist and something like that is never happened.
In your case, we asked several times that for accept your reservation you should paying a deposit as a guarantee of the reservation, but this has never been done from your side.
At the beginning of our adventure in the tourism sector we have accepted many reservations made by phone and email, like yours.
Of these reservations, 50% were found fake so in 2007 we introduced the rules that , for accept the reservation the customer should pay a deposit of 20% of the reservation.
In your case has not been done for a reason unknown to us (by email we request at least 5 times to paying the deposit).
For this reason we had to cancel the reservation long time before your possible arrival and we can't accept your review as you wrote.
I hope that in the future , before you make a reservation in one hotel , you should accept the rules imposed by the hotel and not to ignore it and try to do what you want.
I hope we have answer your review and we have clarified for all other guest reading this review.
Many greetings from Safari Suit Hotel.

Reviewed 22 January 2007

It was very very clean and for a 3 star I was very suprised by the standard, room's were cleaned every day, beds and towels changed twice a week, more offten if required.

We stayed in a self catering apartment, there was pleanty of plates,cups,glasses etc even though we didnt need them because we ate out. The rooms were quite large for two people, an extra bed is available if needed but I think it would taken up two much room for me (I like my space)

There was always hot water and the staff were all very friendly, helpful and could speak English very well, (this isnt always the case in Side.)

The pool was a good size and there was always pleanty of sunbeds. Drinks and food at the pool bar was good and the prices were avarage.

I have stayed in lots of places in Turkey and the hotel is of a very very high standard and I would book again to go to this hotel. I am thinking of returning sometime in April (if I can get the time of work)
