“The worst hotel I have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 23 February 2011

We booked this hotel for 2 nights as an extra, our main 2 weeks were staying in the Turquoise Hotel in Olu Deniz (This other 3 star hotel, was a palace in comparison to The Malhun). Before going we had decided to stay for a couple of nights in Calis Beach and booked this hotel online, unable to find many reviews. We travelled by dolmus and water ferry from Fetihiye. Yes the weather wasn't good(the worse storm and flood the area had known for 20 years was coming..)but this hotel despite being on a beach front location (the quieter end of Calis Beach)was plain miserable!!
The room (and hotel) was dreadfully dated and worn THROUGHOUT, stunk of cigarettes and the only thing that had been updated since it was built years ago was the bathroom. The balcony was unsafe. Despite this large hotel only having a few rooms taken, we were allocated a rear/side view and not a coastal view. We were in a large 2 bedroomed room however they failed to supply a second bed for our sons until we asked.
The few staff who we saw at this hotel did not speak more than a couple of words of english. The atmosphere here was non existant. We only noticed German guests staying at this hotel and therefore the food was completely for German tastes. Sausage casserole, rice and vegetables was the only dish I could stomach with bread. Breakfast was vaguely better, they fried eggs for you!!
We chose to only stay one night here as we had the option to return to our paradise in Olu Deniz and it was pouring with rain the next morning, so unfortunately we never saw this resort in the sunshine, but we much preferred Olu Deniz for a good Turkish family beach resort.

Reviewed 21 October 2009

We stayed at the Malhun in Sept for one week and payed £130 for two adults B & B.Very cheap £65 each for a three star hotel.This included A/C.On arrival Sat night we were put in the annexe accross the road (they did try to put us in a transit room but we refused).We were told we would be moved the next day.Next day was told the following day which we accepted as we were in a lovely room.When talking to one of the locals they explained it was Ramadam and one the busy times of year.He said not to be rude to the managers as they would do everthing to help us.He was so right.Next day my husband wasnt to bothered about moving as our room was bright spotless clean and a nice view overlooking our pool.Also SO SO quiet.Even a 9 in the morning nobody about.We went to look at the room on offer after breakfast and decieded to stay put.We also hired a fridge for the room and a safe in the room.On departing we were not charged for any also made a couple of phone calls not charged either.I think this is because we were put in the annexe accross the road the only thing is we didnt have a sea view but we had a lovely room which had towels changed daily beds every other day.Rooms cleaned daily.Spotless clean .Bathroom everthing worked and was quite new.Only downside if pickey it had a carpet why? It was stained not dirty but stains.Not everyone is careful on holiday and accidents happen.Cant understand why they just dont have tiles like everywhere else.Staff fantastic so friendly.Did thank them many times for doing things for us.Think that goes a long way instead of seeing downsides.Calis beach is one of the nicest places we have visited.Unspolit , clean.No English bars which was great.Turkish people very nice not much hassle at bars etc!We went to Icmeler in June really enjoyed there but to touristy and hassle unbelivable.When people moan about wether hotel 3 stars think wahat we are paying.In England we would be lucky to get one night for what we payed one week.All in all fab holiday.We are back in June2010 but have found a selfcatering we are going to book as we get fed up dining out every night.Best thing about Calis Beach the breeze that arrives at lunch and stays thoughout the afternoon.Beautiful
