we have just returned from two weeks at this hotel. it was really good apart from a few details that i wanted to write about to help you make an informed decision regarding this hotel.
its location isn't too bad, a 20 minute ride dolmus gets you into the busy town where you can buy anything you may possibly need, the resort itself has four/five pools which are layed out quite nicely, ranging from a nice little paddling pool for toddlers to much deeper pool in a quieter area for those without children.there didn't seem to be many children there when we stayed maybe fifty at a push ranging from babes to teenagers. there is a kids club but not very well organised or publicised so they could improve on that, also the food range isn't very child friendly as not many children i know want rice with every single meal, they also do lots of veg in sauces which most of the children avoided, there is usually one pasta dish per meal which is very bland, just boiled really but you can add cheese to it, my little boy more or less lived on pasta as he wasn't keen on rice every single day, there is a snack bar where you can get pizza and chips etc but they don't like you taking it up to the main restaurant area, although my husband managed to get away with it… sun beds are plenty but you do have to reserve yours as early as possible, some people we know paid the towel man one turkish lira a day (about 30p) and he put their towels out for them, small price to pay. we tended to nip down to the pool at around 9.30ish to put ours out and most sun beds were reserved by then by you know who…the rooms are quite nice if a little tired, there are cleaned every day and linen is also replaced daily. free water in the rooms daily too. lovely lady near the pool making pancakes, they call them turkish pies, grab one for a snack when you can. staff are very helpful but the younger waiters tend to prefer to serve the girls and leave families waiting but if you mention it to the bosses in the restaurant they do their best to improve things. there is a private beach attached to the hotel but its a sheer drop so don't bank on getting in the sea unless you're a confident swimmer. the only thing that really annoyed me, well two things was the pushy bloke trying to get you to have a turkish bath and the photographers the are constantly taking random shots of you and trying to get you to have sunset picture done, the seem to spend lots of time photographing children and putting them in quite provocative poses which i thought was odd. i didn't let them take any pictures of our son/
overall its a good place to stay, worth a visit and if you've already booked you will have a good time but i wouldn't rush to return unless they overhauled the menu.
ask for soft mattress…….
