I had read the reviews as I always do before booking. As we all know less people write a positive review than a bad one. So I always take a cross section and decide if it is a reasonable place to go. We were met at the gate helped in and given a choice of room.
The Villa Fortin has mainly good reviews and a couple of bad ones. I would disregard the bad ones. The hotel is basic with small bedrooms and not a lot of storage space. There is a wardrobe but no drawers so leave the smalls in your case. The rooms are cleaned daily with a linen change twice a week. They are clean and with basic decor as you would expect in most hotels in Turkey. The pool area is large enough to accommodate all guests with a pool service if required. Snack meals are available all day and late into the night.
The hotel is a family run business with Mr Fortin the father his wife and three sons. They are all so friendly and I have not laughed so much on holiday for years. If they can do it they will they are the most helpful hoteliers I have met. This was also the attitude of most of the guests who have been going for years they were all so friendly we had a great time.
The breakfast is also basic Turkish. Bread cheese meat tomatoes etc, with boiled eggs every other day.
You are not too far from the center about a 8 to 10 minute stroll with a mass of restaurants and eateries and bars. The town center is a mass of shops of all descriptions with a market twice a week. Friday is mainly the fruit and veg market with the main one Wednesday.
I love Kusadasi and have visited many timed Make sure you find the New Salt Box best Fish @ Chips in the world.
The Fortin, if you don't like small, clean, warm & friendly, in a good position and near the bus routes and center. I would advise don't go I will next year along with the many guests who have been going for many years. The bad reviews they prefer family types who do not keep other guests awake until 4 or 5 in the morning and leave the rooms and sheets fairly clean. Not like the ones I saw in the photos. Messrs Fortin I give you top marks well done.
