just returned from the dorian the hotel itself is ok as a base to stay food ok theres something for every 1you wont starve but its cheap to eat out if you book this hotel and are on a budget thats when you get a bit stuck i met a couple who were on a budget and they couldnt wait to get home,the 2 boys and i meen boys running the bar are the worst ive ever seen especilly the skinny 1 flat lager thats if you could get a drink they only have vodka and raki nothing else if the management want to improve they need to get rid of those 2 the other 1 is a girl very helpfull and good behind the bar,the rooms are basic we had 207 and the cleaner was very good 10 out 10 making the room look nice,ive been to oludinez twice now and im going back next year but wont be staying at the dorrian my advise is pay a little extra and stay some place else,at the end of the day its your holiday and you want to enjoy it so stear claer of the dorrian.

Room Tip: as far away from the bar

This was our second time in Olu Deniz last year staying at Club Sun City which was more expensive for a week (we had 10 days at the Dorian and this was £500 cheaper than a week at Sun City). The standard of the food is good and you can always get something, but it is so cheap to eat out in some fantastic restaurants (Harry's and Captain Hook's are particularly good). It is a hotel with lots of potential but just needs to be managed better. Alex who was one of the bar staff was an excellent ambassador for the hotel and had a great rapport with all holiday makers regardless of age and nationality.

The reception staff are useless, and dont seem particularly experienced. If I was in charge I wouid find someone similar to Alex to put on front of house. It would help if they had some basic English so they could understand and respond to questions, queries or issues.

Rooms are small and basic, the cleaning staff do an amazing job and our room was cleaned daily and to a high standard. They do not have enough staff in general and the waiting staff and reception staff are often the same people. The only staff who wore a uniform were the cleaners, oh and if you get a problem the cleaners sort if out for you much more efficiently than reception.

People who had returned to the hotel commented that it had declined since their last stay.
If it was my hotel I would:-
- lose the animals in the petting zoo, this area smells especially if you are in the rooms close by.
-invest in customer service training for existing staff
- replace some of the dodgy sun beds and parasols
- give the bar and pool area by the restaurant a real deep cleanse
- Make the waiting staff wear a uniform so that they can be identified
- Give Alex, the cleaners and the Catering team a pat on the back for a job well done
- Increase the staffing levels as corners are cut due to lack of resource despite the staff working long hours and working hard.

there is a courtesy bus to the blue lagoon twice a day and this is beautiful, you have to pay for beach beds and food and drink but its very reasonable and they do proper home made chips.

when I read the reviews I was dreading our arrival, however, remember that this is a budget hotel and is good value for money despite some niggles. We had a brilliant time and will definately go back to Olu Deniz again, probably wouldnt stay at the Dorian again but that is because we prefer somewhere a little quieter.

If you have booked dont panic you will have a fabulous time, just make sure you get out and about as Olu Deniz the resort is really to good to miss.

If you understand Turkish hotels then I say this is ok , as for the rooms they are clean they have a bed and a shower , the food is ok , not good if you don't want to try Turkish food but remember you are in turkey , ok music is a bit loud but it's low in the right times of the day , people moan about the smallest things , it's a good hotel for the price

Not 5 star but still very nice. First impressions were bad. Rude bar staff and a horrid old fashioned room on the bottom floor near the disco. Very noisy. Got moved a day later after requesting somewhere quieter. Moved to block 500 which was much nicer. Food was good. Go for the fresh food cooked daily. BBQ's, omelettes, pizzas and kebabs. The fish Is good too. The kitchen staff and housekeepers are good. Bar staff are either too miserable or too familiar!! The appliances in the rooms are quite tired looking. The showers are flimsy. Loo appears to get blocked easily and not enough towels supplied. Had a good time and although room for improvement we would stay again in the future.

Room Tip: Blocks 500 or 600. Nothing is higher than 3 floors.

Oludeniz is a lovely resort very friendly and stunning scenery.

It was very hot and sunny during August 2013 when I visited the Dorian hotel with my 2 children who are 14 and 11.

This hotel is most suited to the 18-30 holiday makers and not those wanting a quiet family holiday base. It was run by a bunch of kids very much for their own entertainment and needs and not for those of the hotel guests.

The reception staff spoke limited English, I found them to be too busy with facebook on the pc behind the reception desk to be interested in anything you may want to ask.

The bar staff were a bunch of young men whose sole purpose appeared to be was to have themselves a good time which usually came at the expense of poor service to the hotel guests having to wait to be served drinks whilst they continued to muck about. They also appeared to be responsible for blasting loud music out periodically during the day (this did not make for a relaxing time around the pool)! At night it was near on impossible to hold a conversation because of the loud music, and each night they took to dancing provocatively on top of the bar this was not what I thought was suitable for kids to exposed to.

The area around the pool was only cleaned once in the 10 days we were there. There was no shortage of sun loungers however some of them were broken. The pool was a welcome retreat to the heat and the sun.

Do Not Accept room 320 if you are offered this room it is above reception and is tiny no room to swing a clutch bag let alone unpack a suit case or 2! Also the shower is so tiny even a midget would find having a shower in it impossible! I complained and got moved to a bigger room however the 3rd bed is a seat and is really not suitable for a bed. The rooms are a little tired and dated and could do with some maintenance. They are supposed to be cleaned daily ours was not I had to go to reception on a couple of occasions to ask for clean towels.

The food in the restaurant was good, there is a selection of salads, cooked meals and puddings at lunch and dinner. The Turkish dishes and bbq were tasty. Breakfast was disappointing.

There were by far too many Russian guests staying at this hotel and I am afraid to say that as a nation they are by far the most rudest people you will ever meet!

If you have the choice pick a different hotel to the Dorian.

Do have a boat trip out around the coast line and visit some of the little islands around oludeniz, the sunset trip was spectacular. And visit the blue lagoon there is a free shuttle bus from the hotel although you have to hire sun loungers at 7tkl and buy lunch and drinks at the beach. A peddalo cost approx. 10tkl for an hour.

Silver jewellery is good value for money in turkey. You will get more lira if you exchange your money when in resort currently just over 3tkl to the pound.

Room Tip: do not accept room 320
