Despite the above statement we had a really good holiday but there are problems with the hotel in my opinion.
We were given ground floor rooms by the restaurant which were very dark (nicknamed our 'cave' for the week). Because they were overlooked by the diners the blinds were kept closed permanently. We had problems with ants in the sink, cockroaches and bugs of some sort that came out every night from round the toilet. The maids did a good job cleaning the rooms but we were in the old part of the hotel and I think most of the problems are due to this. We were woken at 5am by the mosque!!! every morning but soon fell back to sleep once the cockerel had finished his rendition. We were not impressed with the food. It seemed that whatever was left over from one meal was dished up again at the next........bolognese for breakfast??? We all had stomach upsets, not sure if that was due to heat or food but talking to a few other guests they also had problems.
On the positive, the staff mostly were excellent. Particularly the bar staff who made the holiday for us. They were fantastic, always smiling and dancing despite working from 6am till 12.30am! We didn't have a problem with being served more than one drink at a time. If you do want to tip them then you should be aware that the tip box on the bar is emptied by the bar manager who keeps the money for himself. There are ways around this ;)
Be very careful round the pool especially first thing as they wash it down and leave the tiles very very slippy for an hour or so.
Summing up......lovely people, Olu Deniz fantastic but we chose the wrong hotel.
