Reviewed 18 May 2011

First time visiting turkey, and have loved it!! Pink palace is a must!!! It's a small locally run hotel. I'll agree the hotel rooms are small, but after all u only sleep in them and get ready in them. The location is perfect. 5 min walk into the town of hissaronu, and 5 min bus ride (2.75 lira) to the beach. Already looking at heading back in sept, and only came back last night!!! Pink palace is a must!!!!

Hi,
Just thought we could add our thoughts to the recent reviews.

As others have said the initial impressions are not the greatest, but this stay in August 2010 turned out to be a great holiday!

Turned up at about 6.00 am, room small, but by all accounts they are variable, so you take your chances. Some duffer on the transfer bus was telling his wife, (when they were dropped off in the middle of no where), that he would collect the luggage and she should book in. So, we did this when getting to the Pink Palace. I filled in the form double quick, smiled sweetly and asked for a pool view, which we got from the side of first building.

However, once you are in there and getting chilled, it will not matter. As for the food we loved it. It is true that you can eat chicken every evening. However there are always other alternatives and the vegetables and the salads are so fresh.The barbeque fish is fab.As in other reviews there are fresh eggs each morning and there is plenty to eat all day if you want. Small water bottles (half litre) you can fill up at will even when you are going out, we saved ours to take out ( that sounds mean but believe me in the peak season everything goes UP !)If you are a fussy eater, and by that I mean you really like McDonalds and pizzas, and chips and stuff then don't bother. If, however you like freshly cooked food, which yes involves chicken, then you will love it.

As for the wasp comments if you ask the waitresses they will bring out a repellent coil that burns like a joss stick, I took a load with me only because I always pack them, they are always available in Boots and cost about a fiver. They are designed for mosquitos but repell anything. Ask for mosquito coils at Boots and you will get the gist.

Pool area is great, we didn't have too much trouble with sun beds , even in August. That said, we were so chilled and relaxed, that we would find one of us would be up for coffee early and put the towels out. However, this is such a small hotel that if you could see that beds were not being used we always asked, or one was offered and that would be fine.

As for the entertainment, then all I can say is that we had some fun evenings and if that didn't suit then we went back to our room and had a drink on our balcony. Turkey is not part of the EU so buy your favourite tipple at the airport.

Do not accept the trip from the hotel for the Blue Lagoon. Cross the road , to the other sideof the road, yes the big road, and when then bus stops,which it will ask for the Blue Lagoon Marine Park. It will drop you off by the turnstiles for the beach, ( Can't remember the entry fee but i was about two pounds each?) If you get the complimetary bus from the hotel the you will end up in Billys Bar.This is the other side of the famous lagoon and comes with its own 'beach and bar'. You are captive for the day. You have been warned ! Look at the maps on Google Earth.We went there for the day and it was not pleasant. Very cramped, you will pay for sunbeds either side, however the water is rubbish, cloudy and ........

Many reveiws have talked about the 'floaters'. Enough said. They are not poo they are lumps of algae in the Billys Bar side because there is no tide. The water is stagnant. The Marine side is as you see on the photos, lovely clear water ,a nice bit of snorknelling. beds are are the same price. Don't know what they will charge this year 2011? From memory I think it was 18 Lira for two and a parasol for the day.

Hiranosou is a very short walk away and like another world. It looks mad and bad and if you like to nightclub then this might be your thing. It has a real family atmosphere until about twelve, and the I guess it gets going after then. . Oh yeah and the market is on Monday morning, and I bought loads and I hate haggling. ! Fab towels .

We had a lot of fun at this lovely hotel. Take it as it is. We are going back. Be nice or leave. That should be their mantra. The staff are great , be friendly and you will have a lovely time with your fellow travellers, warm weather, lovely food .........oh how we wish we were there now..,.....

I stayed in the pink palace hotel in september when we first arrived we were disappointed with our tiny room which was at the very back of the hotel which was in need of updating but the next morning the manager came up to us and asked if we would like to move rooms which we said yes he gave us a choice of 2 rooms with one over looking the pool which was a much nicer newer room which we moved into and were much happier. All the staff were brilliant! The location is fab as it is a few minutes walk into town so it is in a quieter spot which is nice. The food was ok there was always something i liked. There was no entertainment at all but people that had been there the week before said there had been so I think it was because it was end of season. Make sure you get the free shuttle down to Billys beach as it is beautiful. Had a fantastic jeep Safari with Simi as our driver who made the trip for us. Perfect relaxing holiday

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel in July last year...

Good points...
- Great location - the hotel was only a 5-10 minute walk away from Hisaronu centre.
- Transport - the hotel provided a free shuttle bus to the beach at Olu Deniz. Also the hotel is very close to the main road which has good transport at a cheap price.
- Pool - the pool area was always clean.
- Room - it was basic but it was cleaned daily.

Bad points...
- Food - although the food itself was of great quality and choice there was a really bad wasp problem. Some people seemed to be able to sit with wasps all around them and all over their food but as I am really scared of wasps and could not sit and eat in peace we ate out pretty much every day. Although we had not taken much money with us this was not a problem as eating out in Turkey was very cheap.
- Room - this may not be the case for all of the rooms in the hotel but our room was situated very close to the reception where the workers seemed to gather and it was noisy all night as well as in the morning when all you could hear was the noise of a machine which went off every minute or so.
- Pool - we had to get up really early if we wanted a sunbed but I suppose this is the same at most hotels.

PS - I would recommend Carole and Tayfun if you are going to book any trips whilst staying here. We booked the jeep safari, the water park, the gorge trip and the 12 island boat trip through this agency and all trips were good and good value for money.

We arrived on Sunday 3rd October for 2 weeks and the guys on reception were great took mine & my boyfriends suitcases and took them to our room. The room was spotless, shower was great with proper doors so you didnt have a flooded bathroom by the time you stepped out of it, The bed - It could be a little less hard! The food was nice, you get your moneys worth - hope everyone likes CHICKEN!!
Pool was lovely,very cold but you just get on with it, staff were great really helpful! I would deffinately recomend the jeep safari - had an amazing time!
We will deffinately be returning when we want another cheap and cheerful holiday!

Just come back from a weeks stay at The Pink Palace Hotel and would definitely go back.
Rooms, pool area and all public areas are spotless. Food is fresh, plentiful and there is a good variety. At least 2 BBQ's in the 6 nights we were there. The staff are very friendly and helpful - we arrived at 04.00 and we were greeted at the bus and our bags were taken to our room. In all it was great value for money!!!

I had my doubts about this hotel with the comments on here but having stayed there with my family would recommend it to anyone. My 11 month old daughter had a brilliant time as did my family the staff were great and the food was fantastic, yes chicken was served most meal times but different dishes and also veggie and another meat dish was also offered. The entertainment was ok but could have been better we had a double room on the ground level next to the pool basic but what more do you want on holiday your not there to live in your room. All in all an excellent holiday and will be beack here next year x
