This hotel has some good points but far more bad points!.. If your considering booking a holiday here i advise against it but if its too late i hope this review helps you to maybe enjoy yourself!!
On arrival it looked lovely but as soon as we got to the reception the staff were lazy and not very helpful, they didnt speak much english (well we later found out it was selective hearing). They tried to keep our tickets and when I asked for them back they ''couldnt understand'' yeah right I say. After arguing for a while I finally got them back but this was the begining of a horrible stay. We were both so tired that we went to bed straight away and decided against buying air-con but it was so hard to sleep in the heat that the next day we went to the reception and bought it. (I recomend the air-con). That day we put the air-con on so that it was cold enough for us going to bed.. wel.. we went out for our dinner and came back to a room that was WARMER that what it was during the day.. I went to reception to complain about this and the receptionist sent an engineer.. he ''tried'' to fix it which included taking thr fan out (as if that was going to help) and he left again. The air-con still wasnt fixed so we went back up to reception.. they told us it was broke and couldnt be fixed untill tomorrow!!!... Our room was probably 40degreeseC as it was really hot during the day hitting nearly 50 and there was no way we could sleep in that heat.. they werent even going to offer us a fan only that i had complained so much and when they said we could have one they were going to take it away again at 8am!!! I had had enough.. so we stood there refusing to move untill something was done.. finally after about 2 hours or persisting we got our room changed!! The manager was soo rude about this and we never got an apology.. he didnt even speak to us.. just sat ther speaking through his receptionist.
Another problem arose during the week during breakfast when they ran out of BUTTER (an essential) and ORANGE JUICE (another essential).. no alternative was provided for this and we had to complain for 30mins before we could have a replacement drink.. tea coffee and orange was all that was provided during breakfast so orange juice was needed for a nice cold drink. Yet again the management was rude during this and pretended to not understand full english (yet again selective hearing).. they asked for our room number while we complained and we later went back to our room to find that someone other than the maid had been in our room!!!!!!! The breakfast included omlette (plain) fried eggs, tomatoes, boiled egg, limited salad and i mean limited, co co pops sometimes and bread.. what a breakfast it was.. NOT!
Another problem was that although we were only bed and breakfast we were NOT allowed to bring any other food or drink into our room, they searched your bags and room for any stuff that was not thers and then took it!!! (the manager sat at the pool enterence every night to see what you were carrying)
Glasses were not cleaned properly.. they used ther hand!!!!! no towel jus water and ther hand..
Entertainement is in Turkish and never english!!!
There was a new problem that happened everyday, we only stayed for a week so our stay was pretty eventful!!
-If going to this hotel complain allot!! its the only way you will get what you want!!
- Use the free taxi that brings you up the hill to the hotel from the taxi rank (8am-8pm)
-use the metro buses they are cheap and good!!
- If you are young expect to be given a bad room but check it as soon as you go in so you can get it changed!
- dont eat the food its not nice
- dont buy drinks at the bar they are expensive bring it in from the supermarket 'azda' sneak it in in beach bags!! Then hide it in your suitcase!!
If you are looking for a nice place to eat I recomend Robin Hood and Olive Tree they are both really nice but especially Robin Hood as the staff are brill!!
The view from this hotel was brill and the town itself was lovely.. if i was to go back i would stay in the town but never will I go back to that hotel!!!!!!!!
