Dorian Hotel
Ranked #93 of 102 Hotels in Oludeniz
Reviewed 15 July 2010

Fantastic hotel, fantastic location (less than a 10 minute walk to the beach and bars) the hotel was made even more fantastic by ALL the friendly hard working staff!! Every member of staff done their upmost to make sure that we enjoyed our stay at the Dorian Hotel. A massive thanks to Cihan and Sonic for getting us all in the holiday spirit!! Rooms were cleaned to a high standard every day, food was always enjoyable although some meals stood out more than others, pools were clean but the only advice is to get up early for a sunbed!! We will certainly be returning to the Dorian Hotel next June!!!! Keep up the good work and once again thank you all!!!!

what can I say, I've never met such fantastic people, Sam,Sonic,Ufuk and others were great, The staff is really friendly, and animation team is awesome! Near Dorian there's an atmospheric pedestrian zone, but actually i didn;t even want to leave "Dorian's area". Every night there was a disco and other attractions, eg bingo, karaoke, turkish night. I will definetely never forget these holidays I''d recommend "Dorian Hotel", especially to young people, who want to have a real fun!

Me and my friends have just go back from staying at the dorian. we were a bit worried about the reviews as some were bad, but we had a great time it was our best holiday together.

The rooms were clean and the maids cleaned them everyday and changed the towels everyday The pools were clean the only thing is if you want a sunbed get up early. The food was good at the hotel. The entertainment was very good, every one was polite and there was a good atmosphere. The location was ideal as it only took a few minutes to reach the beach and bars.

We will definately be returning next year for another holiday at the dorian.

After going to the dorian, and having a fantastic holiday you will be going home and booking to go back again. the hotel is spotless the reception staff are the friendliest people i have ever had the pleasure of meeting. And the evening entertainment staff are not to be forgotten, ever! They work hard and long hours to make sure your holiday is as much fun as possible with a constant smile on their faces. I will definatley be going back to the Dorian again and again, you can guarentee meeting lots of lovely people and having a holiday you will remeber for a long time x

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.

I stayed at the Dorian Hotel end of may beginning june with my partner and we had a really good time! After reading some of the reviews i was a little worried but when we got there they quickly disappeared. We had a lovely room overlooking the pool/restaurant area which was cleaned with fresh towels everyday and the maid did her best to make it look nice for us with her artistic designs with the towels and flowers, bless.
Food was fine and plenty we never went hungry, not top notch but very edible obviously if you go up to eat nearer the end of the evening then not so much choice!
There was entertainment in an evening which was ample especially if you didn't feel like taking a walk out into the town your usual karaoke, turkish night etc, just be aware that between 10pm - 11pm they will only serve 1 person with 1 drink and then after 11pm the drinks can be quite expensive dearer than downtown. But its definately worth staying around for because the entertainment lads Sonic and John are funny!
There are 2 pool areas with sunloungers generally enough although i wouldn't leave it too late for grabbing them else you could be disappointed, it was spring bank holiday while we were there and we had to get up extra early to make sure we got some but then having said that there were a few groups of 4plus there. Plenty of chairs to throw your towel down on though if you do miss out on a bed and right next to the bar- so even better!
The hotel has a nice natural feel with the chickens, goats etc around but they don't harm or get in your way, and the 2 dogs are very well behaved you have to even call them over to fuss them!
All the staff at the Dorian do their best to make it a comfortable and enjoyable stay and for the price you pay its well worth it. We enjoyed it that much that we've already booked up for next yr!
