My boyfriend and I have returned home from the Munamar hotel on Tuesday morning. All i can say is what a fantastic holiday i had!! From reading the reviews below i was a bit worried with the hotel swapping and the food, but i risked it and ended up having an enjoyable holiday!
Really modern, clean and quiet! Yes there are quite alot of russian/german toursists but are all polite. Quite a mixed age group (my boyfriend and i are both 18 and found no problems here!) our room was spotless and towels were changed daily! we were situated at the back of the hotel over looking the munamar residence and had a huge balcony! The only problem we had with our room was our key! it wouldnt unlock our door so we had to keep going backwards and forwards to the reception staff, who at most of times were unhelpful and rude! we found if you kicked the door the key hole would flash green and let you in, was a pain but it worked!
Can't really fault the food! have a load of fresh salads and cold food inside and freshly prepared hot food outside. Yes sometimes a bit repetitive but always tasted lovely and was always something different to try! Although some bits of beef have ateries still in which is extremely off-putting! I took some advice from other reviews and turned up for dinner between 7-8pm and always got a nice table with cutlery, breakfast and lunch never seemed a problem!
Beautiful beach over looking the mountains, sand got extremely hot during the day! There were quite alot of screaming children throwing rocks and stones at people in the sea one day and a number of guestrs complained and they were removed. There are no children on this part of the beach normally! The lifeguards are quick to remove anyone from the Munamar part of the beach who arent hotel guests. No matter what time of day there are always sunbeds available. My boyfriend and i got up early to reserve front row beds as the views were amazing! There is one man who walks up and down the beach selling "fresh fruit" we bought a box of cherries for 5 turkish lira and once we started to eat them realised they were mouldy with fluff growing off of them! we threw them in the bin next to sunbed. The fruit man saw this and started a row and tried to insist they were fresh!! I would avoid buying anything from him, there is plenty of fresh fruit in the hotel to choose from!
We also took part in the thompson VIP boat trip leaving the hotel at 9am and not getting back until 5pm. £33 per person and includes lunch but not drinks which was ridiculous as you are in direct sun all day unless you go under the canopy! We stocked up on waters from the hotel and purchased a few drinks on the boat. The day we booked the trip we had an offer from a local to go on their boat trip for 10 lira and includes lunch!! we realised we were ripped off!! All in all it was a beautiful day, got a lovely tan and took some fabulous pictures, very relaxing aswell!!
I loved this hotel and was so gutted to leave! Coach transfer time was a pain on the way to the airport as there were about 10 more pick ups from our hotel. Seemed quicker on the way to the hotel, But is worth the wait! I will definitely be back in the future and will make sure i book a longer stay!
