“Not bad but a few improvements and it would be lovely”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Cheap hotel on price food not bad staff very friendly .Lovely gardens well maintained nice location good sized swimming pool. There are Cats that live in the grounds that are lovely if you do not like Cats then this is not the Hotel for you.
Cleaning needs to be improved in the bathrooms as well as more toilet rolls.
But for the price you pay you possibly will not find cheaper so very good value I think the rooms vary on price and we had one of the cheaper rooms the better rooms are in the main building and it is worth paying the extra if you can climb stairs.
Yes I would stay there again

Room Tip: pay more to be in the main building

Me and my sister arrived at 3am after a long delayed day from getting from Gatwick because of the French strike. Wee were greeted by Hamza who showed us to our room also giving us the information needed before showing us to our room. The next day the manager Solomon came over to us and apologised that he didn't greet us last night, but we didn't mind as we had a good greeting. Our room was brilliant for the my sister ad i and we were happy how clean and tidy our room was kept in our stay. The food was always fresh and there was always a selection of two dishes from salads to sometimes curry or fish, this was always accompanied by chips and sometimes nuggets. The staff were very polite who were always there when you needed something. My sister and I heard a lot of people complain about little things which was the mostly about small things and they were very rude about the staff, I'm sorry you're on holiday so why complain about little things! During mine and my sisters stay which lasted two weeks they also gave us some good entertainment which consisted of them teaching us some games. The pool was fantastic and it was quite big in comparison to other pools i have been too, it was also well looked after and it was always clean. There was enough sun beds around the pool for everyone. If people want to read all the bad reviews from the people that are stuck up then go ahead but your definitely miss out on an amazing holiday. We ended up walking to town every time we went even when we came back most of the time as it was only about 20 minutes from Hisaronu's town. If You want a holiday with fun and laughter i recommend you stay here.

Room Tip: Stayed on bottom floor with a balcony and it was very quiet

We stayed at Balkaya Hotel for one week in July for a girly holiday and didn't want to leave, on arrival the room they have us wasn't great but we changed room and from then onwards out holiday was perfect, the hotel is clean and tidy, nice pool, fresh food everyday we eat healthy so we loved all the fresh salads and eggs for breakfast we ate so well while we was staying at Balkaya, the hotel is a 20minute walk from Hisaronu witch was perfect because we was away from all the big hotels and all the crowds....the hotels is surrounded by mountains and pretty gardens,the staff were brilliant nothing was to much trouble for the them they looked after us really well, almost like we was being waited on, they were lovely people... it was a perfect holiday. I'd highly recommend this cheap and cheerful hotel

We arrived at 3am in the morning to a dark hotel and someone with a torch showing us in so you can imagine our first impressions but do you know what we were wrong. We woke the next day and went to the pool which by the way is a great pool well laid out with plenty of sun beds and the manager solomon came and introduced himself what a nice bloke, he apogised for us having small rooms and promised that as soon as others became available he would move us and true to his word he did and we were very comfortable. The staff are amazingly helpful nothing too much trouble, hamsa mehmet great helpful guys who were more interested in making sure you were enjoying your holiday and went above and beyond to make sure that happened quite happy to play pool with you and on occasions ended up in tbe pool with you. As per previous reviews if you want total luxury then go elsewhere if you want a budget holiday with totally hardworking friendly staff this is the place to go. Will be going back

stayed here from june 19th for ten days, had a fantastic holiday, yes the rooms are basic but are clean, they were cleaned regularly , could not fault any of the staff, they were always willing to help. solomon the manager is always around and would try to put right any problems you had..
mustafa and hanze worked long hours to keep us watered lol and great fun. The food was fresh every day and to be honest did not have one bad meal, , there may not of been very much english food but you are in turkey, i think if people want a english holiday go to blackppol..The pool area is fantastic with plenty of sunbeds and always clean. Its a great location with other resorts in walking distance so you can not ask for more. looking forward to going back in october. Also met some great people there..Thank you all staff for a great holiday

I am quite sad to write this as our holiday was ruined by this hotel in a lot of ways , we happened to stay when soloman was away for a few days , and it seems caught it at its worst ,we arrived to be shown to our room ahhh !!! a rabbit hutch with one bath towel which was stained and one hand towel between us ,and a bed with blood stained sheets on our bed which had a itchy scratchy cover to sleep under ,in temps of 38 was not a nice feeling ,the room was very grubby with fixtures falling around you !!! toilet seat falling off too . we stayed for six nights and our room was cleaned .... well we walked into a change of towels that had been dried and put back, don't think they were washed , we were all inclusive and so were hoping to eat a lot at the hotel emmm ,the food on the first night was served luke warm and not nice cold chips ,we complained to the our rep the next day about our findings . the staff were mostly friendly but very lazy when soloman was away it would seem , as when he returned they were noticeably doing a lot more not just sitting around on computers and phones ! I can only assume our gripes were passed to soloman and he chose not to acknowledge my partner and I ,think he may have squeezed a hello on first seeing us but for the rest of our stay nothing !!! I REALLY don't understand the good reviews the people must have had a very different experience to myself and partner , three star hotel I don't think so !! and would say it is truly terrible and that's a nice way of putting it . must just add the swimming pool lovely as it was ,,, was only cleaned once while we were there and became cloudy in appearance ,I could of gone on and on !!! but think that's enough about this terrible place .good luck to all that go there ,lets hope they pull there socks up now .

Room Tip: ask to be moved straight away ,
