After arriving late at night at Dalaman airport it was great to be greeted by the hotels mini bus. After about 50 minutes our party (24 in all) arrived at the hotel. Instead of going through the normal check in procedure, we were asked our names, given the room key and said we can complete all other formalities in the morning. This got us off to a great start and allowed us to stop and have a late night drink in the bar. The rooms were very clean however; the bedding on the first night did not include a top sheet but a rough type of blanket which did not allow a great night’s sleep. All this changed the next day when we asked and got a top sheet from reception. We stayed on a half board basis and found the food to be fairly basic and somewhat repetitive, but very edible. On Sunday we had a roast but unfortunately the vegetables were not even ‘al dente’. We agree with other comments about the towels being a bit rough and also we found them to be somewhat jaded some with many holes. One great point about the shower is the pressure of the water which was most impressive, especially when you can get poor water pressure in many higher star hotels.
All in all, the hotel was very clean, the staff and management extremely friendly who helped make our stay very enjoyable. There were a couple of days of heavy rain but that’s not unusual in October. There are many inexpensive restaurants around Calis, so it’s not difficult to go out and have a good evening if this takes your fancy.
Would we return? Yes. Would we recommend the hotel to friends? Yes providing they are aware that it is only three stars. Is it worth the 50 minutes transfer time? Yes, especially as this should improve when the new roads have been built.
Finally, many people gripe at paying £10 on entering the country, well this is well advertised and if people objected they should not have gone in the first place. We must bear in mind that our Government impose similar taxes when flying but these are included in the airline prices.
