Club Aqua Ortakent
Ranked #29 of 30 Hotels in Ortakent
Reviewed 25 September 2005

After 14hrs of travel we arrived at hotel at 4.00am and found ther were no facilities to get a drink or anything, reception staff were unhelpful and unfriendly. On being shown to our room we found it was directly above parking bays and looked out onto a road, not a pool view has online brochure states. The road was very noisy all night with traffic sounding horns on approaching bend. Dogs barked all night and at 5.30 each morning prayers over load speakers came from the mosque which was only about 10 metres away. After trying to sleep for a few hours we gave up and went down to breakfast and to look around the hotel, WELL i could go on in great lengths from here but i will try and make things short and honest.
Room: noisy,not to clean, in bad repair with holes in walls and bare electric wires, bathroom was dirty, had to hold shower head in hand to shower as wall fitting was broken.
HOTEL FURNISHINGS: old tatty and torn.
SUN LOUNGES/PLASTIC CHAIRS: very few and most were broken
FACILITIES: only one toilet on complex which was out side, all others were either none exsistant or broken.
RESTAURANT: only one with minimal seating inside other seating outside hence outside restaurant.
FOOD: bad{and i eat anything} only one choice of main meal,minimal ammount given,same thing for two weeks, coffee/tea was outside and milk was in a water jug not refridgerated and was often off or curdled due to being in the sun.
BAR: only 1 bar the american bar that was set on a windy corner outside and next to smelly toilets. Only 1 drink at a time was allowed and you could not get another drink if you still had some in your glass,{thats if the staff wanted to serve you}
SNACK BAR:none
MIDNIGHT SOUP: none
SANDWICHES: none
ENTERTAINMENT: domestic stereo{ that played about 3 of the staffs favourite record over and over} wired to a large speaker that sat on a chair with wire laying across paths. Belly dancer? 1 night {more exotic than belly}
POOL: not good for younger kids about 4'6" at shallow end and kids pool was only like a paddling pool 10" deep big enough for about 5/6 babies
STAFF: very unfriendly, very unhelpful.
REP: not interested, uncontactable
SURROUNDING AREA: dirty,few shops,lots of hotels, nothing catering for English, no live entertainment.

Magic Route is all inclusive but more like BBE, restaurant and bar were often late opening but very strict on closing. Needed to buy meals out has food was bad. There is nothing for the kids. In all it has been the worst place i have stayed tried to be positive and make the most of things but staff made you feel like you should not be there.Lack of sleep was taking it's toll when 10 nights into our holiday we got a room change {4 nights of things being a little quiter} I would not recommend this hotel for the young/families/ English or anyone else for that matter. IF you are going to Magic Route i hope you enjoy it and find things different .

On arrival at the hotel, at 4am resort representative asked if there was any water for us guest to drink as we had been travelling all day with out anything and they only had hot water on offer. when given our hotel room we discovered there was only 2 beds when there were 3 of us and i had paid 3 adult prices for the room and to temporarily accommodate my son they gave us a rusty old camp bed for him to sleep on and had to wait the next day for the bed which we had to argue for, rep was very unhelpful and was more interested in selling excursions than looking after the guests. faculties shown on offer on there online brochure is false as half of them either did not exist or were very tacky. ( things that did not exist satellite, no massage, no basketball courts, no out door restaurant only 1 restaurant in complex and no snack bar!) food on offer at restaurants was very poor and minimal amount was given, the American bar was allocated next to toilets that seemed to have sewage problems!
Things that were available but were not up to scratch i.e. table tennis table was broken, 70% of chairs to sit on also broken, 231 rooms and only apporx 40 sunbeds, and some broken and dangerous.
our holiday to this hotel was an all inclusive being English we go on holiday to enjoy our drink and food but at the bars it was one glass one drink and you were not able to get a drink for i.e. wife/husband or children as you had to go individually, it felt as if we were back in school having to que one by one to get a drink and some one was always walking around making sure everyone only had one drink each, we felt like we had put on a diet!
surrounding facilities like the beach was filthy and bars were not accommodating to other nationalities.
the only thing that we can say positive about this holiday was the town of gumbet which is recommended as there was more on offer in entertainment wise.
