This was our first time to the hotel athough we has stayed in the area the previous year.
We stayed in one of the apartments and it was adequate for our needs as we have no moans as we tend to only use it for sleeping and showering. People need to bare in mind you get what you pay for and if you want a luxurious room then go and book one in a hotel at a much higher price.
The staff Ilyas and Sadik were very welcoming and friendlyfrom our time of arrival and when we had a problem with loss of electricity it was fixed immediately. They were very chatty and we even had a few games of pool with them, and as far as I saw they were friendly to all of the residents, which is contrary to some of the reviews on here.
The hotel is in a quiet location about 20mins walk from Hisaronu but there are plenty of restaurants about 10 mins away if you don't want to walk that far.
We caught the Dolmus several times in to Olu Deniz and to Fethyie and they are very cheap and so easy to get to around on. Fethyie fish market is worth a visit as you choose your fresh fish from sellers and then it is cooked for you at one of the restaurants for about 6L which includes bread and dips.
We went to the hotel in May and we did have a few cloudy/rainy days but we always found something to do.
The pool and pool area were clean and plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas to go round. Didn't venture in to the pool as it was a little cold for me but some people did venture in.
We had lunch in the restaurant a couple of times and I can certainly recommend the toasted sandwiches which were the best I have tasted. Also the club sandwich was massive and really good value.
Lost track of how many tequila sunrises we had at the hotel - they were also really good and quite cheap - and we could certainly taste the alcohol !!!
I would recommend this hotel and will be looking to return next June as it had everything that we needed and was in a great location in walking distance of shops and restaurants.
Ilyas I will be practising my pool to hopefully beat you next year - but then I was at a disadvantage as I had had so many of your cocktails !!!
