Spent a week here with my hubby and sister, we were lucy enough to have rooms lower down which were quiet and away from the constant BOOM BOOM BOOM of the music played by the pool area, not a place to go if you want to relax!!!!!!!! Food wasawful and I cant even describe the tea, we thought the tea urn!!!!! was topped up with tea bags. Luckily we took our own kettle and tea and coffee supplies. Room basic but clean and no shortage of rough towels. We did book a couple of trips through the rep on the first day and got 10% off. The day on the gulet boat (max 35 adults) was excellent, relaxing, peaceful (no music at all), good service from the guide and crew, stopping in small bays to jump off boat and swim. Also booked an early departure which combined the trip to mud baths and turtle beach, this was theday before our flight as our transfer fromairport was horrendous and took hours.
Also booked jeep safari with the NO-NAME ticket shop, we weren't prepared for this at all as it is combined with massive water fights between the jeeps. Advisable to take as littleas possible and hire a water gun fromthe guide, it did turn out to be fun, as war was declared between the jeeps.
As the food at the hotel was so bad we ate out, but this became a chore as it is constant hassel from the guys who seem to have the job of getting you in to eat. We did find a couple of bars where you can just sit and have a drink without having a menu shoved under you nose, and without the big screen TV's which constantly had football on!!!!!!
We found most of the staff at the hotel friendly when we saw them, couldn't sit by the pool due to the constant music which was loud, thank god our room was away from it all.
It was a relief that we hadnt eaten there much as we saw a pair of shoes with dirty socks in sitting in the dining room table!!!!!!!!!!
All in all we enjoyed our visit toTurkey and we made the best of our time there which was away from the hotel. It's a shame as there is huge potential for this place. Definitely not 4star, 2star at the most.!!!!!!!!!
Highly recommend gulet cruise and take a travel kettle, if all else fails a decent cupof tea is needed.
