We had a great time at the Turk this year and recommend it. Lily is the tour de force and nothing is too much for her or Hussain for that matter.
The hotel is very clean, the rooms basic but adaquate. The breakfast is turkish which takes some getting used to but this is the same with the other hotels in the area. I noted that Lily and her family eat exactly the same breakfast as us everyday as did the hotel staff. There are cereals or you can buy an 'Full Englsh' if you want - the same as the other hotels in the area.
Much is said about late night partying in reviews on Olu Deniz. When we were there the Turk was actually very quiet at night but Olu Deniz is lively as a whole up to 1am when it all calms down. Now Lily is good I will give her that but even she can not stop noise from other hotels or bars. But she did moderate the noise in the bar.
Evening meals are turkish in nature but err... this is turkey! Again Lily, her family and staff eat the same food so if its good enough for them! Then again the bar menu is enough to keep you topped up and the chips are real 'handmade' chips!
What must be remembered that the Turk is a Hotel - not an entertainment centre. IF you want the entertainment aka 'Pontins' type holiday then try one of the larger hotels and go self inclusive. If you just want to do your own thing then Turk is an excellent option.
Olu Deniz its self is a lovely place, it does have everything we needed. The people are friendly and helpful. There were no high pressure sales staff, and shopping was a joy. The food was really good and we noticed that the bar staff remembered us when we went back the next day.
Lunch time at cloud 9 is excellent, having lunch with paragliders coming in just feet away at times is a strange experience - Keep your camera ready!
If anything, if you don't find Olu Deniz livily enought at night, then you could always get a Domus up to Hisaronou, Just rememeber what time the last one is back to Olu Deniz!
All in all, a great time, would we go again? yes and we would stay at the Turk.
