This was our first trip to Turkey for me and my partner and we could'nt have wished to stay in a better hotel.It's situated right on the beach in an excellent location.As it was the end of he season,the hotel was only about a quarter full so we had no trouble getting a sunbed but even if it was full there looked to be plenty of space for sunbeds round the pool and on the beach.
The staff were all freindly and very helpful and it was a nice touch to have a bottle of red wine in the room when we arrived.The rooms and the rest of the hotel was spotless as the hotel was refurbished this year.
There's lots of places to eat close to the hotel and I would recommend the Samdan restaraunt across the road for great food at a reasonable price.We got a breakfast there on the last day because we fancied a lie in and ate at about 11 o'clock, it was superb value 4.99 turkish lira for a breakfast of 2 eggs,bacon, sausage, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans, fried bread and toast and jam,that worked out about £1.40. It was the same on a night at most of the eating places with lots offering 2 courses for about a fiver.I would recommend Always bar about 10 mins walk from the hotel towards the marina.We ate at the marina one night, the food was no better than the places around the hotel but it was a bit pricier but still reasonable.The food in the Blackpool bar was nice but I'm afraid the drinks were poor and seemed watered down and the entertainment (Roxy Tart the drag act) was terrible.
The boat trips from the beach were also excellent value, we had a great time, all day on the boat with lunch and sunbeds for about £8.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday and wouldnt hesitate to come back to this hotel, in fact we will probably come back next year but maybe a bit earlier, they say september is the best time.
