I have just returned from the Destan Hotel after a two week stay with another couple. Overall, I was very happy with the hotel.
Our room (which was classed as a suite) was refurbished to a high standard. It was of a good size with a large bathroom. It was clean and we also had a jacuzzi and a fridge (which as far as I am aware we did not pay extra for). There was ample cupboard space and an LCD TV. We were on the bottom floor so we had a large terrace which was shared with the other rooms. Although the bar was quite close there was not too much noise but we mainly came back after it had closed anyway!
The only down points to the rooms was that; we had an adjoining door which could be opened if you are a large family. We were quite lucky becuase nobody stayed in the room next door for a long time but when they did you could literally hear everything. Also, although the shower was always warm it was not very powerful.
The hotel is in a perfect location and if you know Hisaronu it is a one minute walk to AZDA. There are two pools - the guitar shaped one and the smaller one. The smaller one was usually quieter with water polo in the larger pool. There was always sunbeds/umbrellas free and there was a good atmosphere around both pools and the hotel in general.
The staff were very helpful, Hero, Danny and, the receptionist were always friendly and ready to squirt you with water at the pool. We had an issue with one of our excursions and the receptionist rang the company off his own mobile and sorted out the problem for us straight away! Our dealings with the manager were always amacable and when we spoke to him he was always polite and friendly.
We had some snacks at the hotel and one night we arranged to have our evening meal there. It was lovely and great value for money. The breakfast was typically Turkish with eggs/bread/jam and cereal etc.
This was our third time in Hisaronu and we were not disappointed. Some of my restaurant/bar recommendations are; Pizza Pepino's, Piano bar, Costello's, Leaves, Peking Chinese was also lovely! Alfresco bar has great music and Tropical has two for one cocktails. Tango bar was also great too. Talk of the Town is a must and also try out the excursions! We have tried quad and jeep safari now and they are all amazing.
Also, try Calis beach it is so much quieter than Olu Deniz beach and it is just as lovely. There is also an Aqua Park at Calis (same price as Ovacik water park but not as good). If you pay to go to the Aqua Park you can visit the beach on the same day otherwise it is 50ytl in a taxi. Exchange rate over there at the moment is 2.72 for the £ but you may as well take English money over with you becuase we seemed to get a better deal with English money!
We booked through Travel Republic on a B&B basis which we found was cheaper than contacting the hotel directly or booking through an operator. I would stay at the Destan again if we could get the same deal.
