Tour group overnight stay. At first got attic room which was 'big' on paper but not much space you could actually use, and there's a tiny window in the eave. Changed to a room the floor below and were happier. Room was still quite strange by western standard - there's a mirror that runs across where the beds are, but the beds don't necessary fit into the space. I've come to accept these quirkiness from Turkish hotels by now. They do have pretty extensive grounds and even a fitness room with 2 running machines which we used. The swimming pool is huge but unheated. The thermal spa is very popular. I really like the bar which is enormous and nicely laid out and doesn't get full even with loads of coach parties coming in - probably because everyone was leaving early the next morning! The staff do demand payment straight away which is a bit unpleasant. The wifi signal in the bar is very hit and miss too. The restaurant is huge and terrible. For dinner they have loads of dishes, almost all very bland as is the want of self-service dinner. The 'Chinese' noodles (there are lots of Chinese guests) are more like spaghetti. Breakfast is even worse - the breads are really dense except for a sponge like thing. I suppose most guests stay here as part of their tour itinerary and won't see it coming, but watching the sunset in the outside thermal pool was worth it for me.
