Reviewed 1 September 2009

a holiday is what you make of it. me and the girls had our second year at golden day and we loved it. cant wait till next year the views from the rooms are breath taking the hospitality of all staff was fantastic and we was made to feel very welcomed. the rooms are very clean and was cleaned every day. the food is not so bad if you like turkish food which we do then yes yum yum your in turkey if you want egg and chips stay at home.these people work long and hard but not appreciated for it. i know i speak for all the girls we love it at the golden day hotel hill and all lol thats why we are going again next year. roll on august 20010.

beautifull country, great view of the harbour from our bedroom. but shame our bedroom wasn't cleaned properly: only beds made! Went down and complained only to be told manager was not avalible and cleaner had gone home. the next day i bumped into the manager while picking a fig on their garden only to be shouted at infront of other guest "GET OFF MY GARDEN, ALL YOU DO IS COMPLAIN!" i find this very unprefesional for a manager who does not take his guests complaints seriously. food was nice but not so much selection for children. Wasn't any entertainment for children besides music. snackbar was not available as if you wanted an icecream or crisps you would have to pay for them even though we were all inclusive. would recomend the Ephesus but do not book with the rep as it is too expensive book yourself. would recomend comin back but to a better hotel star rating i would say would be 1 1/2! beware when bookin they do not have a seperate bedroom for children, you are all lumbered in the same bedroom.

Just returned from a week at The Golden Day Hotel.Think 1970's Hilton and you would be about right.
Positives :
great location overlooking marina,with great sunsets.Free aircon,Staff friendly with us.Clean.Shopping for "genuine fakes"at the Wednesday market great fun.
Negatives :
Food & drink limited ,usually luke warm,DANGEROUS !nothing for kids.No entertainment(one 10 min show per week).Extra charges for table tennis ,pool.
Extra charge to keep room and use facilities after 12-00.£15/person or you have to leave the hotel until flight pick up time.Adaland water park worth a visit but expensive.
Summary:
Met some great people & had a good holiday on the whole.Haggle over everything!Take Euros & Lira.A crispy new £10 note opens plenty of doors.Izmir airport expensive £10 for 3 cokes.
Will go back to Kusadasi ,great place,but in a better hotel.

I do not normally complain and always look on the bright side of things, but have to say...
we booked this holiday very last minute, went the next day, I was debating between several and in the end two hotels, would recommend Tesan Beach Hotel for those not having booked here!
Our transfer pick up via medhotels, Kusal something was all on time and easy but he drove at about 90 mph and we were holding on for dear life the whole 90 minutes of the journey to Kusadassi - hence no tip!
Arrival of hotel, first impressions were its not finished, rooms were spacious, view was lovely but nothing to say it was a 'superior' room.
Restaurant Area/Room - was very small compared to other All Inc hotels we have stayed in, food was tasty but if your a fussy eater you will probably live off bread for the week. Waiters were ok, eager to clear away after you swallowed mouthful. Drinks, well the wine was basic, soft drinks on hand ok, but not much selection of spirits.
Pool - Was nice, difficult to get an umbrella. Bloke who takes your photo's and then displays small copies later for you to see, and is all pally pally turned out to be a nightmare! Ordered 6 photos agreed at 7TL each, went to pick up next day, got completely wrong photos and wanted 50 TL for them, was not happy!
FAMILIES - be aware there is no entertainment atall - we were gutted as my youngest had dresses and wanted to boogie and play games - there is nothing. Infact on the last night they had a turkish night - we were shocked, the night of leaving a bit of entertainment, it started at 10.30pm, but was late and then theres no wine left and the bar closed at 11pm ( first night of around the pool for the evening) Lots of complaints!
WHAT TO DO: - We thoroughly enjoyed our boat trip, would recommend going with 'Yosun' (located down bottom of hill, straight opp road in marina), they charge 50TL for adults and the children go free. We stopped at 4/5 bays, staff were fantastic and it includes drinks/lunch. Other boats can be found cheaper but are very over crowded and do not give that personal/family touch. We took this trip twice - was that good.
ADALAND - we were advised, it was great for rides, once you arrive you go to cashier and they issue a card with whatever amount of money you wish to spend for the day and then at the end keep receipts and they give you back whats left - bit off a queue. We paid 120 TL for 2 adults and 2 children through travel agency in Kusadasi.
Taxi prices vary - again they seemed the easier option - never saw a mini bus at right time?!
EAT OUT - Went to MURPHYS Bar, Ali who visits pool area during day, asks you if you fancy meal in town, free desserts/drinks and they pick you up and bring you home when you want. Nice food - nice evening - would recommend for a change of scenery.
DIAMOND BEACH - Eddie who also visits hotel, asking you to visit his beach, pick you up 10.15 and drop you back 5pm, this is the only beach we went to - it was nice, wavey in the afternoon, so hire pedlo first thing. Restaurant is nice, massage available and very friendly people. Its a long beach - not a cove beach like his photos show tho!
ROOM NIGHTIME - THERE IS A CLUB AT THE BOTTOM OF HILL THAT IS OPEN AIR - MUSIC STOPS PLAYING AT 4AM - BE WORNED!!

WE MADE THE MOST OF THE LOCATION - WEATHER WAS FAB - POOL WAS NICE - STAFF/PEOPLE FREINDLY - BUT WAS VERY DISSAPPOINTED IN THIS HOTEL/ACCOMM HAVING BEEN ADVERTISED AS ALL INCLUSIVE & SUPERIOR A1 ROOMS.
ENJOY!

Booked last year, last minute deal to Turkey to Hotel Golden Day. What an absolute dreadful hotel and terrible decision. Turkey is just a hell hole and the hotel was so disgusting I still have nightmares about it now. Food was awful and did not cater for British or children, not what you would expect on all inclusive. Pool and the weather was the only highlight of the holiday, many people there were also complaining and very upset at the quality of the food and hotel standards. No entertainment provided for the children or adults, and also be warned, Turkish like to party until 4 in the morning with loud music! Heavy Lamp Post fell on a small child whilst sitting around the pool. WARNING - DO NO VISIT THIS HOTEL PLEASE!

PLEASE Dont think of booking this hotel before you read my review, I think I mentioned everything and I have been really honest!!!!! Any questions I will try and answer if I can.

Great points -- Would not have enjoyed as much without the company of our friends from wales and ----Met a great family from scotland, Suzanne and Dougie and kids, and a nice lady Lynda and her son from Norwich--who's email I have lost after my phone crashed - really sorry guys!!! Contact me through here if you can please.!!!!

Well We booked with hays travel (via med hotels), 4 adults, two from near Lake District and Two from South Wales, first time in turkey for us and 2nd for welsh couple.
It was a good price for all inclusive (we been to lots of places all inclusive before) but booking the day before you travel you usually get a bargain of some kind so we thought nothing of it.
Flew with Onurair which was excellent a brilliant flight (both ways) and lots of empty seats and we could spread out.
Got to bodrum and found our transfer bus all good so far, journey took an hour and a half at breakneck speed, good job we could not see - 4am in morning - should took two plus hours so he was really pushing speed.
Got to GOLDEN DAY HOTEL, met by night porter who helped with the luggage and was a really pleasant young man, check in was easy nice recptionist and got our remotes for tv and air conditioning, porter took bags up to rooms with us and showed us in and how to work air con (reminds me of welcome u got in spain in late 70's early 80's) and then he brought us a plastic glass of water each as we were really thirsty and tired and nothing open at that time of night.
The room was huge, beds comfy, balcony nice, the view was AMAZING, this hotel is probably about 25yrs old and all the rooms are facing the sea, they probably were only hotel around at one time and would have been quite exclusive then, now there are apartments and other hotels built nearby, plus you have a huge hill to walk up and down to the main road, only do this once a day if your not too fit, no good for anyone with walking problems, you would need taxis all the time.
The pool is great and they cleaned it every day, the sun beds were ok not comfy but you could hire a padded cover for 2 TL from reception as they were not included in our all inclusive.
Had quick sleep and got up at 8am to go for breakfast as we were really starving - well here began the experience..........
NO fresh fruit, NO tinned fruit, NO cereals apart from stale cornflakes, warm watery milk, there was a huge table of yoghurt, olives, salads and pastas, rice and sauces, but they were NOT refrigerated and the flies were all over them, really UNHYGIENIC, they had clingfilm on but that was peeled back to allow you to use them, they were stood for two hours and it was hot in the restaurant and no air-con, breeding ground for bacteria, the commis chef would make you an omlette just outside on the patio but that was the only hot food, sometimes there were sliced tomtoes with melted cheese on, lots of pastries and jam - again NOT covered or refrigerated and bread - NO toaster tho (Did get one 2 days before we left ), we made best of it and were not hungry but you had to be careful what you ate as flies and no refrigeration do not make for healthy tummies, and you definately had to go at 8am, so you knew food was fresh as not kept cold or covered.
LUNCH was same all UNHYGIENIC again and most of same stuff - was it put away after breakfast --- two hours open to elements and flies --- and just brought out again for lunch I wonder. Sweet cakes and like a blamange type pudding was really nice to look at but did not get put in fridge or covered so all flies on that too.
Soup was interesting, various flavours and some of it was really good so at least with bread you had something hot and two bowls would fill you up. Meat was like hot dog sausages and chewy, chicken in abundance and cooked in all different ways, all types of veggies with cheese sauce on and chips or wedges or potatoes dauphin but always COLD unless you got to them as they were brought out and put in containers, still a worry about freshness and hygiene here.
DINNER was same again -- salad table full of same stuff!! still not refrigerated.... Then they got a new frige one that used in shops to serve from - better than nowt tho --and that was used for water melon and which ever cake they prepared for dinner, they also got flat cold plate eventually and some of puds and cakes and fresh peaches, went on this but for size of hotel it was just not big enough to hold everything and most of food was not chilled at all. BIG MISTAKE - quite few people had upset stomachs and the runs -----was it because of food being un chilled???? Makes you wonder......
Bar in restaurant well actually it was a cupboard with a serving hatch, you could use this at lunch and dinner as the pool bar closed when this was open and you actually got GLASSES to drink from here so the size of your drink was normal, they did keep running out of everything!!
Pool Bar was tiny and very basic, no local spirits at all just vodka, whisky, raki, gin. I thought some liquerers would be available and maybe white rum or brandy too - NONE. The plastic cups they used, great not having glass round pool BUT, they were WASHED and used AGAIN, tasting of fairy liquid --YUK!! the styrofoam ones were binned, they were for water, tea ,coffee and fruit juice. The plastic ones were only half filled and they were tiny, you could only get two drinks per guest so we were in a group of four so that meant two of us going to the bar each time, as they were such small cups we were back up again and the queue got longer and longer as the nite went on, if you tried to get any extra - 3 drinks - the bar men got in trouble from the bar/restaurant manager for you having too many drinks on your table.
I have to say the staff were really really nice, tried to help and were courteous, (except for one of waiters who was bit slimy -- if you were 18 - 25 yrs and smiled at him nicely he even gave them his room number and would supply them with drinks from the closed restaurant bar on the patio throught the window if you sat under it ---- very naughty, mind you some of the girls played him and got table full of drinks even tho they had no intention of anything else) they did try and serve quick but one bar man was try to serve, collect plastic cups, wash them and serve again then he kept run out and had to change barrels or cannisters as fast as he could, they were run ragged, not enough staff at all. All inclusive bar closed at 2300hrs - first time ever had that, the little bar closed and the big pool bar opened with 2 staff which meant faster service and of course as you were paying they were much quicker.
There was a huge bar opposite the restaurant which was empty and all closed down, no optics or drinks in it, had tables and comfy chairs in there and would have been lovely all open and you could go on patio with drinks but never opened at all??? hen asked bar / restaurant manager why it was closed he said because people would not want to sit inside and go up for drinks from pool--duh! in evening would be nice to have comfy chairs to sit in and tables etc and could sit on patio too, much comfier than sunbeds as not enough chairs or tables round pool area for all guests.
Kids club - HA HA!! -- two slides and a swing and no staff at all and no activities at all, glad we did not bring kids, a lot of families were gutted as they had been given spiel about great activities and club etc, not available at all.
Gym - could not find it? but mentioned in info.
In all honesty this could be a great hotel, position, rooms, pool etc but they really need to get their act together and sort their catering arrangements and basic food hygiene out, food covers and lids, hot plates, and fridges and cold plates are the first and basic things they need, environmental health would have a field day here - it would be closed down in a heartbeat!!!! then they need to check their menu out because the waste they have is probably huge, a quick review would really help and they could serve great food, some brits may want a bit more cooked for breakfast, but as long as food is hygenic, hot and edible most brits would be satisfied and at least could fill up on SAFE foods.

I would definately go to Kusadasi again, really loved it but, would NOT be going to this hotel again, no matter what i paid, i expect the basics to be met and they definately were not here.

Every one was complaining, we had a cheap deal but some people booked in January and had paid £1400 for two adults and one child and they had a terrible time trying to get their child to eat anything.

The Med hotels Rep - Cant remember her name she was so unhelpful - was turkish and 5ft 5in with curly hair and rides a moped, once met you found she was the rudest most obnoxious rep you would have ever come across she told us not to moan about the bar or food or service cos we had paid for 3* all inclusive and this was it, you getting what you pay for she said, not even offering to try to sort the bad bar service or the UNHYGIENIC food out at all, just could not be bothered speak to any of the guest who approached her, one couple went to her boss and complained really badly. She will get the company MED HOTELS (who i think are part of Thomas Cook Group) and this hotel a bad name as you need someone who will try and help and who will listen to your complaint, suggestion or problem not someone who cant be bothered and is very rude to everyone at all.
