We stayed at the grand ucel from 8th to 22nd June and had the best holiday ever. We been to turkey many times before and stayed in some posh hotel but we wanted a cheap bed & breakfast, so we could eat out at night. I wasn't expecting the hotel to be great after reading some reviews but we loved it. Rooms are basic but are a good size and clean. Fridge was empty so we went to the local supermarket and stocked up on water and drinks. The pools are lovely. 2 pools one for sunbathing and swimming and the aqua park which we got free as staying in the hotel. The aqua park was great the kids n my husband just loved it. Our little boy is 2 and loved the small pool and slides.
The hotel is in an excellent location with the local buses (dolmus) stoping right outside. You can either go to hisoronu or olu deniz. Both places are packed with resturants, bars and shops. Very lively and great atmospheres for couples and families. A good bar in hisoronu is the Fez, good beer and lovely staff. They also do a quiz every Thursday which is fun and it has park on back for kids to play. Good resturants are the Shine for Indian food and the festival for Turkish opposite the fez bar.
You can eat for around £45 for a family of 4 inc drinks. Lots of places do 3 courses for 20lira which is £8 !! And a beer is around 6lira so £2.30. We loved this resort and hotel and are going to go back next year. Don't be but off by people's poor comments on here. This hotel is excellent value for money. It's a 3 star but is clean, in a good location and he staff are lovely. It does have a lot of Turkish families on holiday there. So if u like a typical British hotel then this is prob not for you. But we loved it.. Xxxx
