I arrived at the hotel at 3am, with 3 kids in tow, says on my accommodation voucher- early arrival- I get told there are no rooms available and our booking was for arrival on the 23rd- erm hello, 23rd starts at 12am, and it specifically says early arrival, don't know how much more clearer it could be. Night staff were very unhelpful and just didn't understand my frustration at having 3 children sleeping in the reception area after a 7 hour journey. In the end after almost 1.5 hours we got our rooms- they were not what we wanted but we thought we would just sort it out the day after.
It is our 10 wedding anniversary- and we had twin beds in the room- we asked to be changed into a room with a double bed, they said they didn't have any rooms available and we were not moved.
The food is decent enough, probably the only good thing about the hotel to be honest. You get conned by the reps, the staff are unfriendly and make no attempt to make conversation or even smile at the best of times.
Some days our room was not cleaned till almost 3pm. The reviews for this hotel are what made me book it, however it wasn't all that I thought it would be.
You are close to the beach, it is not a sandy beach and close to a good market, lots to buy and decent prices, they don't hassle you like some places.
The entertainment in the hotel was dire, you couldn't even understand the guy, he had the microphone stuck to his lips the whole time and at times sounded really perverted and rude, keep your kids away I say. There is constant music playing near the poolside which kills the mood to relax and just unwind.
I have to say I was disappointed with the hotel, I saw them treat some people very differently to us, perhaps because we are Asian they didn't take much notice of, and a few other Asian people said the same thing. We even pointed this out to them when asking to be changed rooms, as others of a different skin colour got their rooms changed straight away.... Im not one to play the race card but this was my opinion.
I would come to Olu Deniz again but would not stay at Montebello Resort and Spa again, there are many other hotels in the area.
