Fabulous holiday, I really don't see how anyone could have a problem with this place! Food very good and lots of choice to be had.
We tried the fish restaurant which was really nice for a change!
We had a 2 bed roomed family room, which was a perfect size, not much of a view onto fenuncular, but this didn't bother us! Could have done with additional wardrobe space if I'm honest, especially given all the spare room available for one in the main bedroom. There was no damp like has been reported previously. Only downside was there was no bedroom door, which one would expect, especially when it's built for so many people and if you want 2 separate bedrooms, you clearly want a little privacy! It wouldn't take much to add a door! Phone never worked we did mention this to reception daily for the first week, but then gave up asking. Normally this would not have been an issue, but it would have been nice to call our other friends in another block, or reception when we needed to. Beds comfy and linen changed regularly, clean towels daily too. There was tea and coffee making facilities in the room, which we didn't use, I did notice however there was not a plug for the kettle! Unless you took the kettle elsewhere in the room to plug in. Tho clearly not an issue to us.
Views are AMAZING, entertainment good and entertainment team very good! Great banter with them all, a great team. The kids loved Ozzy in particular! He also looked after the slides, and it was a pain when people would not wait to go down the slides "one by one" but by the 2nd week Ozzy had squired a loud speaker, and the slides were sectioned off, meaning a much safer environment, and everyone could clearly hear Ozzy and his "one by one" lol
The waiter Hakan who looked after us in the restaurant was excellent throughout our stay, could not have wished for a more attentive person! Drinks and table ready for us every morning, noon and night! A credit to the orka team.
Pools clean, sunbeds not an issue, slides excellent! Indoor pool great too, along with the ice machine to keep the pool cold, which the kids loved getting ice and treating us adults to an unexpected cold treat! Lol
Can't speak for the hairdresser, but as for the girl that does Nails don't bother she is clearly not trained, or is a novice. quoted £20 for my daughter to have acrylic extensions, then charged £30, and they lifted after 4 days! When I complained I was told it was growth and this is normal, until I showed her by flicking one of the nails off in front of her! Anyone who has acrylics will know they should last 2 to 3 weeks! My daughter was so upset having spent nearly all her pocket money on them, she just wanted them taking off in the end! I will not let this issue affect my overall rating however, as I believe they are separate to the hotel.
Ice cream in the afternoon was a treat for the kids, you could also have waffles and chocolate sauce too! Evening buffet was a nice touch too, if a little limited, salad, burgers and Chips! Oh and hot chocolate from the inside bar at night to take to bed yum!
Hisaronu appeared to be better for shopping and nightlife than Oludeniz! Jeep safari where you go tickling fish, to the gorge, rafting and beach was excellent and well worth it for £15 each! Ps take big water pistols, great fun.
In room safe is free, and we did have an issue one day (think we put in the wrong code) and we got it seen to within 15 mins of asking.
Really nice drinks all round even the cocktails were good, both alcoholic and non for the kids and non drinkers - although please beware there was a drink in the non alcoholic section called an 'ice age' as stated in the drinks menu it contains blue curaçao, giving it the blue colour, and this is a liqueur with alcohol in it between 15-30% depending on the brand, so watch how many your kids have, as they like the blue colour, and older kids doesn't take the long to realise they can actually be served alcohol.
All in all a fabulous holiday, and I would return and recommend to others
