We stayed at the grand UCEL in late August this year and the write up said the hotel had just been refurbed and was a 3* so we thought after a refurb it would be almost a new hotel to stay at. We got that wrong it is quite a scruffy hotel the finishes are not up to western standards and being a builder they stood out to me, that being said after our initial impression of oh no this isn't very nice we settled in and had a great holiday the pool area is fine the location is great as you are in the middle of fethiye,hisaranou and oludeniz and we would highly recommend turkey and we will definitely be back, our first trip has been fantastic the weather is unbelievable and the people are so nice and they adore children.i would like to add the breakfast here is a joke it is salad everyday watermelon and some weird cheese and processed meat not what we are used to and generally don't have it in two weeks it hasn't changed once and the last few day there has been two weddings which completely take over the pool and restaurant area, they shunt all the sun beds up onto a raised deck of about 1.5 meters which is crap for me with two children under 5 and you are also about a 20-30 meter walk away from the pool which again isn't ideal we can't sit on our beds a by poolside within reach of the kids I found this unacceptable and will not be back as my child safety is second to a poxy wedding
