We arrived here on Monday 23rd Sept 2013. We had booked 2 rooms together, one for my daughter and her partner and one for me, and on arrival our rooms were miles apart and mine on the 3rd floor and my daughter's on the ground floor which I found odd as I am 54 and had to walk up 3 flights of stairs as there were no lifts!! My shower fell off the wall, I had no plug in the sink and although the room was clean the balcony was filthy, We unpacked and went down to the pool bar for a drink. The all inclusive package was a disgrace as it only included soft drinks, vodka, gin, whiskey and beer, not even the local Efes!! So tough if you didn't like any of these. Everywhere else I have ever been you can get cocktails and their own brands!! The evening meal was awful and as we found when the week passed that it was so repetitive and things were cold. We lived mainly on salads all week. The next day just got worse with breakfast consisting of boiled eggs, omelettes, toast and cereal with no hint of an English fry up. Plenty of salads, cheeses and chips, sorry but those things are ok for tea but not breakfast!! We found out later we were only 3 among about 8 guests there from England they were mainly all from Bulgaria and what ignorant people they ardent taking platefuls of food and leaving most of it. Our rep came to see us and he was totally useless and just wanted to sell his trips and wasn't interested in what we had to say. Friends of ours stayed at the Sumeli about 15 mins down the road, run by the same people and they had a lovely time with the food being more English and the drinks included so much more. The beach is like a builder's yard dark grey sand and bricks and rocks everywhere and the sea is murky. The pool was only cleaned once all week!! Instead of putting on weight I'm sure we all lost it. The only good thing to say about this place is the weather it was superb and Adaland water park was good where you can swim with dolphins, a very enjoyable and memorable eexperience!! We went into Kusadasi town one evening and had a fantastic meal at Murphy's Irish bar thoroughly recommended. My first trip to Turkey and certainly my last, back to Greece for me. Stay clear of this hotel!
