Iv been many holidays over the years including five star on many occasions. Booked golden orange with my friend and our kids for a week as it was cheap and we were in need of some sunshine.
We certainly werent expecting the ritz, but in all honesty if we did stay at the ritz we certainly would not have had as much fun as we did staying at the golden orange. We met so many fantastic people and came home with so many memories.
The hotel is small and basic. But for the price and the atmosphere noone can complain. Our room was very clean, cleaned daily and regular linen and towel changes. We had a double room apartment with great balconys and views.
The food was fantastic. Our children are very fussy eaters, my son has aspergers and is especially fussy- they all loved the food. Never seen them eat so much in their lives. The menu had food to suit everyone and the portions were huge and cooked to a high standard. The mashed potatoes are the best iv tasted.
The staff were very attentive and friendly and went out of their way for you. Our kids wanted irn bru and they went to the shops to get them it. They interacted well with everyone and made us all feel very welcome - especially kadir, ronnie, chunky monkey and alfie. They were always smiling and having a laugh with us. Even gathered to say goodbye and wave us off as we were leaving and tried to come in our taxi with us. We were sad to leave. Kadir the owner even allowed us to keep our room on until 8pm the day we were leavin and we were supposed to check out at 12. All staff treated us like special guests which was lovely.
The pool was great fun and the kids loved the slide. It was very clean. We done some excursions which were fab but the kids were most happy spending time at the pool. As the hotel is small, we got to know all the other guests staying there and all the kids played together - and the staff entertained them all well. This is what made the holiday so special as the staff and guests all got to know each other and the atmosphere was so relaxed and family friendly. There is free wifi also which is a bonus.
The hotel is family run and Daniel and spartacus from the excursion company down the road are related to the hotel staff and spent lots of time at hotel. They helped us book excursions for a great price and discount and advised us on how not to get ripped off with people tryin to sell us extras during excursions. They were both very friendly and helpful and spent time chatting to us and getting to kno us.
We made some great friends in this hotel between staff and guests and will definately be returning. We had such an amazing holiday stayin at the golden orange - and the fun filled atmosphere certainly blows the atmosphere of some of the bigger five star hotels iv stayed at out of the water
