We stayed in this hotel for the last 2 weeks in August 2012. On arrival at 6am in the morning we had be allocated a double room but as 'we' where myself and my 16 year old son this was hardly suitable!! The only room spare twin room was one of the famous "dungeon" rooms. The room was very small with clean two single beds in it. I accepted the room for the night as we where so tired. However I horrified by the bathroom as it was 'clean' but with mold (wished I'd packed some Cillit Bang!!) and the bath was in great need of upgrading. Just as we where about to go to sleep the pool man arrived and opened up the cupboard below the pool switched on the lights to start his cleaning - unfortunately this cupboard was opposite our patio area.
When we woke we asked at reception to be moved but there where no twin rooms available. I asked could we be moved at to the first available twin and that the bathroom mold be addressed in the meantime. The room did not have any drawers just a small created wardrobe so we did not unpack but left our clothes in the suitcase for the two weeks - well it made packing to go home quicker!! The bathroom was cleaned leaving a lovely lemony smell but the mold remained
When after a week we where offered another twin it was an attic room which was smaller and no balcony. We declined this and stayed in our dungeon room. We only slept in the room but had to shower in the bathroom!! The benefits of this room gave us access to the pool,bar and hotel areas quickly as the stairs up from the dungeon where directly opposite our room. As the room received no direct sunlight it remained cool at all times and no mosquitoes which other rooms seemed to have plenty of! Plus the pool man waking me a 6am meant I was awoken early so got to get the choice of my sunbed!!
We stayed All Inclusive and found the food to be tasty and plentiful. There was always a meat and vegetarian hot option for dinner. Should you not like these options there was plenty of salads to choose from. Lunch was a little samey and breakfast was the normal Turkish breakfast with advantage of a toaster for your use should you wish.
Drinks where available from 10am till 11pm from the bar near the pool. However there where lots of rules to obtaining drinks which became a real problem, especially with the staff manning the bar. This surprised me as there has been a lot written about about Memet and Albert in previous posts. I did not find them friendly or fun. Last orders was at 10:45 and you had requests for drinks refused unless you had finished your drink first. However the paying customer was greeted with a much more friendly manner. I did not realize that being All Inclusive was such a problem for the hotel. And as we did not abuse the privilege of All Inclusive drinks I found this very puzzling and annoying.
The pool area is clean with lots of beds - there are Brits playing the bag a bed game with their towels so if you do wish a specific bed set your alarms. Some of the beds had seen better days and needed upgrading.The vegetation around the pool made sunbathing fun as it does block the sun. Perhaps a good pruning would help!! and getting rid of the huge sun obstructing Palm Tree. The music played from the bar was on a repeat and grated somewhat after a time.
The hotel is an easy distance from Hisanarou and all down hill however coming back is a killer but the taxi is only 10TL which was much less painful!!.
The evenings at the hotel are quiet sit down and chill no entertainment which was fine. The bar did allow people to put their IPods on which was a change. We made friend at the hotel so we sat and talked the evening away.
This hotel is basic no frills hotel, excellently situated, the pool is fine some of the rooms are is desperate need of upgrading and I understand that the hotel will not be offering the All Inclusive option next year so you will not be made to feel like a second class citizen the bar!
