“Pleasantly surprised but room for improvement!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We read a fair few reviews before deciding on staying here and were pleasantly surprised with our stay considering the amount of bad reviews. Although it did not start amazingly with our flight being delayed and not arriving at the hotel until around 3am. Two members of staff were there to welcome us and the one behind the desk was very friendly, welcoming and spoke very good English. The other kind of appeared out the shadows, grabbed my arm and placed the band on my wrist which took me by surprise. He then took our cases and showed us to our room. Like another reviewer said he just hung around at the door expecting a tip. We literally had nothing smaller than 20 lira so had to give that, to then not even be acknowledged by him for the rest of our holiday!!
On waking up we were very impressed with the hotel, the food was amazing although towards the end of the holiday we felt it was getting a bit samey but still delicious. Again like another reviewer has said I came down with a horrendous tummy bug whether from the food of uncleaniness, which dampened our last few days.
The bar staff were very friendly, although did choose Turkish guests over others so much so after waiting for 10 minutes with Turkish people jumping in I gave up waiting for a drink and went and helped myself to some water!
The room cleaners were lovely, always there with a smile and enjoyed having small talk in English. Our room was cleaned very well and fresh towels and linen on regular basis.
We were very disappointed by the entertainment, during the day around the pool there seemed to be a fair bit of entertainment which was enjoyable by all. I felt unless you put yourself forward for something and made yourself known you were not spoken to by the entertainment staff. The evening entertainment was pretty much non existent! Most nights we sat down stairs for so long that we became bored of waiting for the entertainment, so much that we went out or went to play cards on our balcony. The evening entertainment needs vast improvements and to actually start when they say it will.
On the whole we really enjoyed our holiday and had a pleasant stay at the hotel although would not choose to go back again. For one holiday it was pleasant but not amazing enough to go back again.

A massive thanks you to Sophie, Jimmy, Emre, Isun for working hard to ensure we had a great time. We have been to Turkey on many occasions and this is the best entertainment team we have had. They worked hard getting to know the guest and involving them in activities, nothing was to much trouble even in their time off work. Also excellent acts such as fire fighters and acrobats later in evening (this was in addition to entertainment team evening activities) All staff were friendly and mixed well with guests to ensure they enjoyed their stay. Food was excellent, good variety throughout the day and evening always served with a smile, credit to all chefs and waiting staff. The hotel was clean and maintained to a very high standard, fresh towels and room cleaned daily also received clean beach towels daily at no extra cost. Spa service good but more expensive than local resort however shop on site cheaper than local resort. Very refreshing to see owner and management on hand daily mixing with guests to ensure their needs were met.Would fully recommend for all age groups. Been looking at prices to book again for September this year, cant wait to return!!! So sad to be home!!!

Me and my partner went for ten days you cannot fault this hotel. All the staff are fabulous and go that extra mile to help. The food where do I start.... so much choice,cooked to perfection the deserts were definitely my favourite. Bar staff are brilliant and all the staff get involved with everything they don't stop and never see any of them standing around. We will definitely go back and I would recommend it to everyone.Total changed my perception of turkey!

Just back from our third visit . Cannot praise this hotel enough. Couldn't wish for a better location The staff all go the extra mile to ensure you have a great holiday. The food, rooms and entertainment are top notch. Special thanks to Sophie, she is a star. The two newer members of the Animation team Jimmy and Emre also worked very hard to ensure a good time was had by all. Also thanks to the best pide maker in Turkey Ahmet, his sense of humour is as good as his bread.
We will definitely be booking again.

After reading mixed reviews about this hotel we did not know what to expect, but we were very impressed. The hotel was clean, well presented and had everything we needed and more. Our room was tidied everyday and the general cleanliness of the hotel was of a high standard. There was a wide variety of food served throughout the day and the chefs were always in the restaurant. The chefs and waiting staff were all very friendly and went the extra mile to tend to our needs. A special mention goes to Sophie and the animation team who by the end of the week became like friends and made our visit an enjoyable and eventful 10 nights. They worked hard everyday to get people involved in games and activities and were always willing to help with anything they could. Would definitely visit again!!

We have just arrived home this morning from this hotel after a week and we didn't want to leave. You cannot fault it , food to die for, rooms perfect , fresh towels everyday. We'll mannered and attentive staff mixing and talking to guests. Sophie is an asset to the place nothing too much trouble. So much so we are looking at prices for next year. This will be three years on the run. It is central for all resorts with dolmus running every couple of minutes.

Having worked in Travel for around 7 years I am always keen to find good accommodation that offers good service and value for money. We couldn't have found anywhere better!Having never had any desire to visit Turkey I can safely say I would return in a heartbeat. The hotel is in an ideal location for those who don't want to be in the centre of things but don't mind a short 5 minute walk into Ovacik and around 15/20 minutes into Hisaronu. On arrival the reception is bright, spotless and gives great impression, the staff are friendly and always on hand to help. Towel cards are provided at the start of your stay which allow you to use towels during your stay, you also get a free electronic safe and wifi (although this can be ropey in the attic rooms). The bell boy saw us to our room with the cases, a very friendly young guy. Prior to travel I did e-mail and ask for a room over looking the pool and with a balcony, I was a little disappointed to find we had an attic room as being 5ft 9 short ceilings aren't always much fun. However the room was lovely, clean, cosy and met all our needs. It was also very quiet. If you prefer a quiet room the attic rooms are ideal and I wouldn't recommend low floor rooms. The rooms are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities, a plasma tv, a good little hairdryer, little bottles of complimentary shampoos and slippers etc which are a nice touch. The rooms are cleaned everyday with fresh bedding every 2 days and fresh towels everyday.
The hotel staff can't do enough to help from the reception, the pool bar to the restaurant. We spoke to a few people while we were there who weren't impressed with the food but in all honesty I am not sure what some people want. There is a breakfast on until 10 and then there is a late breakfast, good selection of the usual, freshly cooked omelettes and eggs etc on request, the snack bar offers a good range of burgers and salad bar as well as a full restaurant dining option also. Between 4 and 5 afternoon tea is served by the bar which is a selection of things like cakes and cookies, this is also a nice touch if you just want something sweet to accompany your drink. The restaurant on an evening offers a great range of food, show cooking, full salad bar with a great selection with something different on offer every night, we honestly could not fault it. There's even a little diet section which we did laugh at which has things like jacket potatoes. The bar selection is not fantastic but then it is a typical all inclusive hotel, the white wine and the local lager are great, and the bar offers a few different cocktails made up of local spirits. The only major downfall I would say is the entertainment, some nights it was karaoke, another night was acrobatics and then we had a movie music quiz which was that hard it was comical. With some improvement this could be good as it is the only thing letting the hotel down. They could also do with some cushions on the chairs where the stage is as the chairs can be uncomfortable after a while. During the day there are water games and activities and although we didn't part take they did look a good laugh.
The overall hotel is brilliant, if you get approached by Tiger around the pool regarding the spa deals, we did the bronze package and it was the best £35 we have ever spent this included a Turkish bath, a full body massage and a face mask, absolute perfection. It is possible to get the turkish baths cheaper however but we were more than happy with the service we got.
We stayed between the 9th June and the 16th and for all the hotel was busy it was well catered for and nothing was a hassle.I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to friends, family or customers and we are already thinking about our return! The surrounding resorts are easily reached by dolmus which are buttons to get and they will stop anywhere if you flag them. We visited both Fethiye and Olu deniz via this method and it was cheap, easy and hassle free. Taxi's are also cheap. Pool loungers can be sometimes hard to get around the pool area as people put towels out early doors, which is a little annoying (but you get this anywhere). The top terrace is a nice quiet place to relax!Turkey well and truly stole my heart and we could not have asked for better accomodation! If you do decide to venture out both hisarnou and olu deniz offer a whole host of buzzing restaurants, bars, shops. We only ate out one night and this was at saffron the Indian in Ovacik and it was lovely!Give this hotel a whirl, you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: High Floor, If you are tall request not to be put in an attic room as they have low ceilings. Attic...
