This is a good hotel, its clean, staff are friendly and very helpful and designed to help you relax. A lot of reviews say the food hear is repetative, don't know about that, wife and I spent 14 nights here and had a different meal every lunch and dinner. Breakfast, there were pleanty of choices, no bacon but if you want a full english on holiday then go to Blackpool or one of the many bars and restaurants in Icmeler its very cheap.
Wife's only complaint about the food was that on two days there was no cake ! oh and the Turks still haven't mastered the art of making jelly. Only observation is that there is soup available late at night, perhaps a kebab would be better !
The waiting staff are excellent and will see to your every want and need. Bar staff are good to, but here is another reason why I have not said this place is five star. They need to use drip mats, the condensation off glasses soon wet the table and you through if your not careful. Another reason its not five star is the entertainment, to say it is poor is an understatement, the guys that run the entertainment have no idea whatso ever.
Room service and cleaning is also very good, tea and coffee facilities in every room, however the Hotel only tell you that you can get water and milk from the any bar at any time, perhaps they should be telling people to get water and milk for their rooms from the inside bar, only one that has the bigger bottles and milk in a container you can pour it from.
Unfortunatley my wife was taken ill and had to spend the night in hospital, not a good thing at the beat of times, however the staff at this hotel just took over and dealt with everything from contacting our insurance company, advising us to take water from the hotel because Hospitals in Turky make a charge for it, and ensuring we had english speaking people were on hand to advise and help us; also a number of staff wanted to visit her and made sure I had transport, and they appeared genuinly concerned for us both, they really did look after us, and I consider that to be quality service, so I have upped my rating to five star.
Did we enjoy it, dam right we did, good food, excellent staff, and good facilities.
Look out for Asim the waiter, looks like Buddy Holly when he remembers to wear his glasses, but don't ask him to sing.
Thanks Aqua we had a great time.
