I have read many reviews about this hotel and i am going to comment about some of the lower ratings. The biggest problem seems to be about the staff i personally found the staff polite and very helpful but i can understand why some people find them in some ways rude but it must be easy for us speaking good English and going to a hotel were all the staff are strangely enough from turkey and they do their utmost best to converse with us in our language. The second one and this did really annoy me was people saying there isn't enough British food again you are in turkey not London or Edinburgh, Me and my fiancée had food from the hotel most days and i felt the variety was excellent and it all tasted good there is one part that does have some British food and the outside bit next to the bar always had snacks on right through the day made fresh in front of you and then the waiter/ress would bring it to the table you were sat at. I did notice though that the kids every night seemed to have chips and spaghetti Bolognaise that never did seem to change which if you are there for two weeks will be annoying. Why people complain about the fact its not British enough is beyond me we go to other country's to absorb new cultures not take the UK with us or you might as well just stay in UK. Thirdly what is the deal with the comment's about people with big belly's enjoying a drink with tattoos all over them a mean just shut up am sure they don't like people like you acting a higher class than you are you pompass idiots. Fourthly the rooms i only stayed in one it was clean some issues but that will be said later on. Now the Reps i cannot comment on every ones experience with them i, i wish a could but i cant but i also have more to follow on how helpful the two girls Jen and maria where for us while there.
Well the holiday didn't start great at Newcastle airport my fiancée's tooth cracked so before we even flew we were like OH S**t and since we arrived at the hotel at 02.05 there was little could be done until the next day. When the next day arrived we went to see the hotel Rep Maria and explained the situation she told us to go and relax outside and she will get her dentist to help. 10 Minutes later while sitting at bar she came and told us her dentist had arrived and was going to take us to his practise. 5 minutes later we were there and 30 minutes later the tooth was fixed and did not cost much may be £100. He then offered to take us back to hotel but we polity said no as we would like to walk back and see the area to which he gave us directions and places to see while we walked. After the Walk back Maria came to see us to make sure everything was ok which it now was she could not of been more helpful unless she was the dentist herself.
Our Room was on top floor as i requested had good space, i found the bed comfy my fiancée said it wasn't the comfiest but hey ho we slept well , the most annoying part was the school from 6 in the morning till 8 at night kids seem to be at that school and the bell or song does go of allot and the kids are loud but it is a school and unless in your room you can'y here it why would any one want to go to turkey and sit in a room. Our room was cleaned everyday if we requested it although towels never seem to get changed which needs to be addressed its warm so you shower allot the hotel does need to change them more.
The Food i found lovely i go to other country's to experience their cuisine i can't think of anything worse than going abroad and having a full fry up and steak chips thrown at you. It is also clean allot of work goes in the presentation i wish i could show you the pictures we took. The entertainment team i felt were just incredible they work from 8 in the morning till 12 at night keeping the kids and adults entertained i was however very disappointed with the night time entertainment the kids one was always the same and the adults was always bingo or karaoke one night we did get a great bartender act which through all the bottles about and then a salsa show but they were both only on for ten minutes each, But again i don't want to be stuck in the hotel when on holiday so i was out most nights. But if have kids then can see reason to bring this up. But Big Thanks to the team especially FATTY who entertained everyone.
The Few shops by the pool were good the kids seemed to like having hair done at Hairdressers into weird and wonderful patterns i did not use so cannot comment i did however use the tattooist to get another tattoo on my arm she was brilliant everything sterile i checked the ink myself it was good quality and she always showed you the needles were fresh in packet exp date was ok and they were not opened and sterile. She is very quick and just a excellent tattooist.
Jen Our Fist choice rep was also brilliant and could tell us great places to go in Marmaris and helped us with excursions we done the Dalyan Check out Plus i would say its a must as it breaks the last day there is no 1hr and half straight bus ride to airport but you go on a we boat trip to see the tombs and turtle beach you also get lunch then you are taking to a 5* hotel (4* if regular check out Experience) where we got a full body massage and use of the gym, pool, sauna, jacuzzi, ice room, salt soon and steam room plus a buffet meal. The hotel will then take you to the Airport a small 5-10 minutes away. Jen Also gave us i great detail information on all the excursions first choice had available but there are some more if go down to the beach or on the street but be warned with the tuk shops the sometimes promise more than you get such as a van for your Jeep safari this was not from us but another couple.
I Cannot Comment on kids club as i don't have kids but all the kids at hotel seemed happy and away from me so the done a great job as far as am concerned
All in All i loved this place so did my Fiancée and we do intend on coming back next year, yes it has some issues but so does every hotel. Thank You So much to all the staff here.
P.S There is a pub called Sweet Corner to the left of hotel and down street it is a must the staff are great and helpful plus food is great keep eyes out for wee jimmy ( Not His real name) And Ronaldo who is always at the entrance with a smile and giving great offer.
