This is the 4th time that we have stayed here and have yet to be disappointed. We arrived late on Saturday 5th July , about midnight and knew from previous visits that the likeliehood of hot food was minimal and had planned accordingl.There was a welcome pack provided. Check in was extremely quick and within 10 minutes of arriving we were on the buggy to our apartment. In the past we have stayed in apts on Ares and have been more than satisfied; this time we had a three storey apartment on Hera, it was excellent. Lower ground floor,master bedroom with en-suite and jacuzzi , access to garden and hot tub. Upper ground, road level double bed with balcony, kitchen/diner better equiped than most kitchens, First floor huge sun terrace. Flat screen TVs in all rooms but who comes to Turkey to watch TV .
Some of the staff remembered us from previous visits which always helps and it helps alot if yu try a little Turkish. Food was generally very good, but we did have one meal that wasn't.We ordered steaks, very rare and they arrived well done- not a problem, they were exchaged without quibble, unfortunately their replacements would have made excellent boot soles. When the waiter came to clear he saw the waste, we explained the reason and he immediately called his manager, the problem was resolved: ..... For the next week we were looked after with amazing care. The fish restaurant is slightly more expensive but not unduly, we ordered food here twice. The fish was excellent as was the service, unfortunately so were the wasps, we later discovered that our grand daughterwas wearing BOSS Orange- be warned. The next table had no problems. Our second use of the fish restaurant caused a little disagreement amongst waiters, we had arranged to use the bar restaurant for fish , but a second waiter said no, again no contest first waiter won.
On the subject of Sams a previous writer has written use it for bread and water only; I concur
I have no issues with the staff, always friendly and helpful, Unfortunately the range is resticted and expensive, use the mini-mart on the adjoining development. They will also deliver 18L water bottles complete withh a pump,much cheaper than 4L bottles.
Last year Sams was where hairdressers is and we had a similar problem, no stock, high price. After a conversation at the Golf resort things happened very quickly,lots of stock and reasonably competetive after that- so somebody does listen.
Boat trip. I expected a full boat and arrived early. No problem- boat just half full, we all enjoyed the day out. Apparently the boat had not been full all season, I think that its not bad value for a day out about £16.
Visit Akbuk, lots of bars/restaurants/supermarkets. I find the best is the one thats not KIPA/MIGROS/PEM. However sometimes their card reader doesn't work.
I know that this reads negatively but it was an excellent holiday. CLC have a good product here , don't spoil it,
To sum it up: resort facilities excellent, staff excellent, shop lacking but adequate local alternatives available, local taxis will drop you to your door.
