Reviewed 24 August 2014

Stayed in a villa near Ortakent (about 10km away) but had been recommended that a visit to the Manuela and adjacent Temple Bar were a must.
We weren't disappointed, ate in the restaurant, drank in the bar, chilled on the couch/cushions and sunbathed on their sunbeds even used their shower room before our flight home as well as being offered a lift to the airport!!!!
Will most definitely visit again in the future.
Many thanks Argi, Erkan and staff.

Visited here for a week in May. Arrived Monday evening and shown to room 210 (this in the Moby Dick Annexe) First thing I noticed was the lack of a number on the door . On entering the room I thought they had been burgled !!! There was no kettle, fridge, t.v. or hairdryer !! On being asked if the room was o.k. my husband went straight back to reception for a room change. On being told to return in the morning my husband said no, we want it changed now. We were shown to room 128 and you could tell we were in a much better part of the hotel. It was lovely .
Next morning we meandered down for breakfast and was not disappointed . Even though its the same buffet every morning it was A1 plus a lovely beach side location . We only had one meal here as we prefer to try a variety of restaurants'. The meal was o.k. but had better and cheaper while in Bitez. We spent our days by the pool . Lovely loungers, plenty of shade and beautifully clean. The beach was ok but busy and after the pool the sea was cold !!! Good bar in the evening , very pleasant and entertainment if you like that sort of thing. Free cold water , coffee and Turkish tea throughout the day ...very welcoming . Going back to my statement , would I recommend .....if I could guarantee that who ever goes there gets a good room then I wouldn't hesitate but would be devastated if they returned having been given an awful room. The Manuela if they could get all the rooms up to standard would easily be a 3* . We enjoyed it immensely. We would return ? Only if we could have room 128 again !!

Room Tip: Not the Moby Dick annexe !! It is nicknamed Colditz ! All rooms have excellent individual a/c. Jus...

I have just returned from Bitez and although I was not staying at Manuela hotel I used there restaurant nightly. The staff are so friendly and they dont pester people to use their bar and restaurant when we were approached by their staff they were friendly and welcoming asking how we were enjoying our holiday and offered us if we woud like to use their restaurant they would give us a good deal but i never once felt pushed to use it. Thankfully I went there the following night and was not dissapointed the greeter looked after us well sat us where we wanted to go and the food was tasty and i was never dissapointed. They really do go all out to look after you . Due to my mothers disability she couldnt use bar stools so they put an extra table on the floor in front of the shows for us and nothing was ever a problem, they really do sit and take time chatting with you and never forget your name or your drink. On our last day whilst waiting for our transport we sat in their cafe speaking to the lovely man who arranges excursions and boat trips etc. We just wish we had sat with him on the first day because he told us so much about the area and places to go and we will 100% be booking to stay in Manuela on our next visit after he showed us the fantastic offer available from end of September to May. This hotel has everything and the view out over the bay relaxing on the sofas on the beach is a must. Not forgetting the entertainment nightly the cuban band and turkish band were fantastic i didnt want to sit down once when the cuban band played all you want to do is dance along with them. We didnt get to see all the entertainment due to the world cup but they went all out on these match nights to make sure they catered for the large amount of people watching the matches, moving seats around so everyone got to watch the matches in complete comfort. I know ive went on a bit but honestly you wont go far wrong staying here. I honestly can not wait to go back.

What a stunning place! Being right on the beach, it's serene and relaxed atmosphere makes for a great chilled holiday. But it stands alone with its approach to entertainment, in that it is the only hotel/bar to push for a full on schedule complete with live bands,dancers,visual shows,and manages to keep a 'local bar' feeling from its Temple Bar. The staff never change - good sign, the owner is always available,the prices are great,the food is delicious...and the tourists seem to come back every year...great sign!

Stayed there for 7 nights in June, read the reviews and it sounded ok. When we arrived and was shown our room we where very dissapionted, ground floor 2 single beds, I went straight back to the reception and asked to be moved they said the in the morning. They gave us a room upstairs with a double bed this time , the balcony is tiny and you share it with the people in the next room with a lattice partition between ( not very personal) we did not get one of the refurbished rooms that sounded and looked from the outside a lot better. The breakfast is not bad though eggs how you want them and traditional turkish food. The temple bar as quite good entertainment in the evenings very busy on Cuban nights.
Stayed at the summer gardens in bitez last year and did have a much nicer room, but I think it's the luck of the draw in some of these hotels either you get a good room or bad which makes the difference in your holiday. Overall it's what you pay for .The staff do try there hardest and in fairness the rooms where cleaned everyday with fresh sheets and towels.
Tip. Buy your fags and booze when you land in turkey it's cheaper there's a duty free shop there when you arrive
