My partner and I and his 2 sons booked this hotel for 2 weeks, we were absolutely petrified of what we would find after reading the reviews on here.
But du know what, we all had a bloody lovely time !
The boys, (apoo, sergen, Kaan, Tuncay(shrek) and David Villa (as our boys called him) were brilliant, and as for them wearing uniform, why should they, it's not the ritz !!
we arrived at 3am, and the boys were waiting outside for us as the transfer driver had got lost, we finally got settled in around 4am, we had a family room, which was very nice but as our 2 boys were 16 & 14, it was a little open plan for us ( it would be fine if you have younger children) we asked if we could change rooms when we went down for breakfast the next day, and we had 2 separate rooms by lunch time, so thumbs up no 1. Thanks Dillek & Soloman.
Breakfast is typical turkish, why should it not be ? lunch was a variety , chips, salad, moussaka,rice, and meat balls to name but a few dinner was chicken cooked in a variety of ways, fish, rice, chips, salad lots of bread, bbq, or you could always order from the hotel menu, or if you do have a problem ask one of the boys and they will usually resolve it for you, nothing seems too much trouble for them in making your stay a good one.
Our rooms got cleaned every day, no the towels and bedding was not changed every day, but do you change yours 7 days a week at home ?? i think not, so thanks Apoo's mum she was lovely.
my partner celebrated his birthday whilst we were there, and they took the trouble to get him a birthday cake and candles, and we all sang happy birthday, much to his embarrassment ! (we had only been there 4 days), (thumbs up no 2) so for some people to say the staff are rude, get a life, and treat people how you would like to be treated ! those boys work hard for their money, and a little respect goes a long way.
we stayed at the saray in Hisaronu last year, and i can honestly say, i enjoyed myself more at the Balkaya.
I can honestly say we made some good friends with the staff and managers, Dilleks shoes are gorgeous !!
yes I would go back there, as I miss them all and we had a wonderful holiday.
if you have any questions please feel free to ask
