After reading some of the previous reviews on the Destan Hotel i feel that i must respond.
Firstly i have to say i feel that i am in a postion to comment as i have previously lived in turkey for 6 years and been visiting this area for a total of 11 years. I have also worked within hotels in the area and therefore understand the ins and outs of running a hotel.
I also want to make clear that i have never worked or previously knew any of the staff within the Destan.
I chose this hotel as i thought that for the money it would be good value and i was correct.
When i arrived at the hotel i was greeted by Veysi and Ozgur. It was the early hours of the morning and they were most welcoming and friendly. They took all my luggage through to reception where the receptionist Latif greeted me with a smile and took my bags to the room.
I had a first floor room which i was most pleased with. Within the room was two single beds and a comfy arm chair, a large dressing table with mirror and chair with iron detail surrounding it. The room was very clean as was the bathroom which had a powerful shower. I had hot water even first thing in the morning which i f ound very satisfying as it was October and the weather cannot always be guarenteed.
The Pool area was also kept spotless with no visable mould as one other review stated.
I noticed that there were a sufficient amount of sunbeds even for the height of the season when taking into acount the number of rooms in the hotel. Music played around the pool was off all different genres to cater for the various age groups staying in the hotel at the time.
The food within the hotel was gorgeous and of a very reasonable price in comparison to other hotels in the area as were the drinks. eg. 1 turkish lira for a litre of water, i know of others in close proximity that charge 3 lira for the same size bottle.
The hotel is in a great location and is literally a 30 second walk from the main street and transport. Being a solo traveller i found this too be very helpful. I think this is also a good point when traveling with slightly older family members or young children as the area on the whole is quite mountainous and you will save money on buses or taxi fair througout your stay.
Overall i found the staff very friendly and professional they all work such long hours and this late in the season it can take its toll, however they never once let it show.
I intend to stay at the Destan on my next visit to turkey and cant wait too see them all for a catch up.
They only bad thing i can say about the hotel is that Veysi supports Liverpool. (haha)
