Stayed at the orka from the 6th/20th sept...
Myself,my husband and our 2 friends chose the orka mainly on the reviews on here,it was our 8th visit to turkey,but our 1st to this area.
We arrived at the orka at approx. 1.30 in the morning,were greeted by grumpy reception staff,shown to our rooms,and not even shown how to use the aircon,not rocket science I know,but would of been nice to of at least received a warm welcome!
We were in room 108 and our friends 208,these are torwards the back of the hotel,we had requested adjacent rooms,but were on totally different floors.
You can hear all the noise from the top bar which goes on until the early hours(2/3 oclock some nights)This however was not a problem for us,but could well be for others,if you want quiet don't expect it in these rooms!
The rooms themselves were very nice,large spacious bedrooms and an adequate size bathroom,with shower over bath,and toiletries provided...
Nice comfy beds and very large wardrobe,small balcony with 2 chairs and table,but our view was a brick wall,again not a problem for us,but maybe for others,mini fridge and good size tv with quite a few channels,was also very clean,so can't fault that!
Maid service was brilliant the 1st week,towels changed every day,beds changed every other,floor swept,bins emptied,excellent!However the 2nd week things went down hill slightly,beds only changed once all week and only changed towels if we left them on the bathroom floor,was the same maid both weeks so found this rather odd,bins still emptied every day but floor was not swept all of the 2nd week,so definitely room for improvement there...
We stayed on HB basis,but only ate there twice in the evening,once on the bbq night and the night after,the food was good,on the bbq night,with plenty of choice,buffet style,we were very impressed,lots of choice,fish,chicken,other meat dishes,chips,pasta,rice,huge salad bar,cold meats,cheeses,olives,soups,and a vast array of desserts.
The second evening the buffet style food was not as big,but what they did have was practically the same as the previous night,so would imagine if you ate there for 2 weeks of your holidays would get very boring...
Had breakfast quite a few times while we were there,especially if we were off out on a trip that day,again buffet style,toast,beans,sometimes spicy sausage,porridge,one morning cheesy chips,rather weird we thought,pancakes cooked fresh and omelettes,this was the best bit of the breakfast!fresh fruit,cold meats,cheese,olives,juice,tea and coffee,Croissants and pastrys and bread rolls,hard boiled eggs and fried eggs too,couldnt fault the breakfast,good!!
The only member off staff who actually bothered with us for the whole 2weeks we were at the orka was a guy called muzzy,very nice man,as for the rest of the staff,they really need to learn some people skills,and maybe just smile just once in a while!!There was one especially rude member off staff called fatih I think,my husband made a genuine mistake one morning of forgetting to put a tshirt on at breakfast,and he was very rude to him,no need for that what so ever,we are all human after all,my husband went straight back to our room to get one,so I really don't no what his problem was!!!The restaurant manager never spoke to us once in 2 weeks either,and made a huge fuss of returning guests,while totally ignoring others!!
This was one of the main reasons we picked this hotel,due to the reviews and great comments the staff get,well we seen none of this,and of all our 8 visits to turkey,these were the most unfriendly staff we have ever come across!!There are many more things I could add,but I cant be bothered and if anyone wants to pm I would be more than willing to share...
Having said all that,we really enjoyed our holiday in this area of turkey,and would definitely return sometime,but not to the orka,unfortunately!
There are some lovely resturants in hisaronu,our favorites were Delboys and Shanghi blues,also if you want some great trips,can highly recommend holidaymate,did all our trips with them and cannot fault them!The highlight of our holiday was paragliding of babadag mountain,just amazing!!!
Also forgot to mention the pool areas,very clean,drinks and food reasonably priced,but same old problem you get everywhere people putting down towels at stupidly early times in the morning and sometimes not using them until mid afternoon,the orka having signs up telling people not to do this and that towels will be removed,but this NEVER happens!!Could never get a sunbed at the top pool!!!
