On arrival to the chicken and lamb palace we were taken to reception and then shown to our room, it was very basic but has four walls and a half decent bed to sleep in. We had asked for a double room after we had booked two singles which was changed at no extra cost. Sleeping through the night can be a major problem due to people coming in drunk and loud and also the constant slamming of bedroom doors, be prepared to be woken every morning at 4 am from either the cockerel or goats outside.The bedding is changed on a daily basis and I had to complain about dirty bed linen being placed on our bed and had to point out to the staff where the stains were. The towels are only changed every 3 days. We arrived at 23.05 from the UK and immediately went to the bar to see if we could have a drink and was refused as the all inclusive option that we had paid for ends at 23.00 hrs every night surely when you pay for all inclusive it should be that with no time restrictions on it. We had not eaten and asked if there was some food available and were informed that we could ring out for a takeaway which we did. On the alcohol side of things beer and the so called house wine is in the all inclusive, the beer is flat and i have drunk much better and the rose wine well ill say no more tasted better with ice. As for the food if you like Lamb and chicken you will love this place, breakfast in the morning consisted of warm cheese and cold meat with flies landing over everything as people didn't have the common sense to replace the cling film or replace lids, its the same red sausage which looks like hot dog sausages in a red sauce served along with beans and scrambled eggs and unusual cereals with warm milk out of a carton which was UHT and butter which tasted like lard, but on the flip side you could have omelette or fried eggs which I pretty much lived on. Lunch Dinner and tea again as the title would suggest its all lamb and chicken and along with soggy greasy chips. The soup varied all sorts of bizarre combinations and once one dish there was sauteed sprouts I mean come on!!!!! One dish we had which we thought would had been really nice was the proper chicken kebab which was cooked on a rotisserie like in a take away at home and when it was served it was cold as it was carved off and placed in food warmers. Whilst queuing for food you had to to be pretty much as quick as a 100 m sprinter as food ran out pretty fast and the waiting staff would take your plate away as quick as you got it at times not even giving you chance to finish your meal, you constantly felt like you were being watched. If you are a non smoker you will hate this place as people have not even the common courtesy not to smoke even when you are eating.
On the hygiene side of things when cups and glasses are been collected they are washed at the bar area in a sink not by a dishwasher but run through a tap with cold water so not the best way of sterilization.
Whilst sun bathing at the pool if you like the constant tunes of Maxi Priest then you will be in heaven as all afternoon the same tunes were played each day.
This place could be a hell of a lot better if they had put a bit more effort into the place and changed the food and menus around and had a bit more variety and a bit more relaxed with the times that alcoholic drinks are served. This review is no way a means of slating the staff I appreciate what they have to work with but we will never come to this place again Turkey as a whole fantastic country but not here. My advice read this and look elsewhere as I wish I had done before booking, take extra spending money as you will want to eat out. Walk up to Hisaronu which is only a 5 minute walk and you will find plenty of different bars and restaurants to choose from.
The one member of staff that was helpful was the young lady on reception she was very sweet and friendly.
