First time in Turkey and had a lovely two week stay at the Grand Cettia.
Staff were the friendliest I have ever experienced and went out of their way to be helpful.
Room was clean, comfortable and cleaned daily. Well furnished, good air-con and a quality shower. No complaints there.
Food was good and varied. Something for everyone... from kebabs to fajitas; Chicken nuggets and chips to lasagne! Plenty of quality salad ingredients and fresh fruit.
Bar staff were very efficient. No small measures or small glasses, and never a long wait at any of the bars.
Poolside was hit or miss. Despite the sign saying not to reserve beds, that happened daily. Some days, beds next to us had towels on them all morning and yet were never used till the towels mysteriously disappeared later on. Beds very close together and residents a tad teritorial. If you plan to sit at the pool every day... be an early riser or a good fighter!!!
Also... personal quibble... music from 10am till the entertainment starts!!! Why not even a few hours of peace and quiet a few times a week? Music was very varied... from club classics to Andy Williams... but forget peace and quiet. That said... I finished plenty of books so must have learned to shut it out!!!
Hotel is a fair bit away from the beach... but local busses are dirt cheap, and free busses are also available.
I would highly recommend the free bus to the beach at Ishmaeler. Neighbouring town... beautiful beach... free sunbeds and shades... and no loud music!
Special mentioon to the waiter Servet who was a gem! He has a beer on the table for me before my backside hit the chair!!! Also, Honey, Natasha, Chelsea and Gerry from the entertainment team were a hoot. Very friendly.
All in all, I really enjoyed my trip.
My wife really enjoyed her head to toe days in the spa room... ... advice... ... haggle even here!!!
Minor gripes... but more than enough positives to make it a big thumbs up and a recommendation from me based purely on our own personal experience.
