My friend and I stayed at Happy Apartments summer 2010 and enjoyed it so much we booked to return summer 2011.
Having been back not even a week I am already missing the hotel and staff having had an even better time this year than last year. On arrival the manager recognised us and could not have made us feel more welcome. We felt like VIP guests but this is how all guests are treated.
If you are looking for a friendly hotel with a nice sunbathing area, a good size pool with a beach nearby then this is ideal. The rooms are basic but clean and quite large in size. Many of the balconies have a view of the sea and are big enough for at least two people to sit on comfortably with a table and a bonus is that the room we had got the sun until it went down!.
The beds are made on a daily basis and this year unlike last year, there were no issues at all with the shower pressure or temperature having been advised a new system has been installed. Hot showers all day everyday!
The location of the hotel is definitely a plus point. With Ladies beach just a 5 minute walk away which has a number of restaurants, there is a regular bus service (the number 5 and they come every 5 minutes) that takes you to Kusadasi town. This service runs 7am - midnight. We used this on a regular basis which is much cheaper than using taxi's (bus is 2 lira each way person whereas the taxi varies between 10 - 15 lira each way).
A number of people who we met at the hotel had been previously and advised they would be returning again. There were also people complaining about minor things but this is a 'what you pay is what you get' hotel! Some people had paid under £200 for a two week holiday so it was hard to work out what they expected!!! If you want a 5* hotel then by no means is this the place for you but if you want a clean, basic room, nice swimming pool (with swim up bar - def one of the highlights!), friendly staff, in a great location then I would definitiely recommend this to you.
The pool bar serve food until 10pm and in my opinion this has improved since last year with their being a new Chef. The steak was a particular hit so much so that me and my friend had this on two ocassions for dinner even though we vowed not to eat dinner at the same place twice!
I will definitiely be returning again and know I wont be disappointed.
