We have just spent 2 weeks at this hotel and honestly don't know what to make of it ! .... Our room was tiny with two little wardrobes containing 5 hangers each.we asked for more and we're given 2.. This wouldn't really have been an issue had we not been staying for the amount of time we did.
Our house keeper was truly fantastic,she always had a smile and looked after us very well leaving us water and lots of coffee etc.
Clean towels everyday and sheets every other. ( we tipped on the first day maybe this helped lol)
As for the hotel itself ... Toilet areas were dirty,no paper on several occasions, people who were unable to actually get their business in the pan many many times which was just vile.
Bar staff were great but hygiene wasn't their strongest point. I.e scratching their armpits,nostrils etc then handling your glass in your drinking space.
You have to pay for drinks after 11.30 but was never once able to actually do this as u just get told "bar is closed"
Food .... Hmmmm .... It was ,to be perfectly frank .... Crap! It was boring,repetitive and always always cold. .... They do however have a microwave should u want it reheating lol needless to say we ate out after several attempts to try and enjoy it.
The hotel next door is going through major refurbishment so all we heard for 2 weeks whilst trying to relax in our shoebox or by the pool was drilling,banging shouting and every other noise u expect from a working site.
The pool bar was ok, nice chicken wraps and cold chips etc ... But again the staff were lovely as they had been throughout the hotel.
All in all I feel Thomson have bigged up this hotel to something that it is defiantly not...I'm struggling to say something else positive other than the the staff and we'll .... I just can't sorry
This was our first and very last visit to turkey.
P.s Nicola the customs relations manager was brill, helpful,friendly and very helpful.
