I have just returned home after a 2wk holiday at bendis beach hotel.
Having been to 5 star hotels in Antalya for the past 3yrs I was a little apprehensive about going here after reading trip advisor reviews but it isn't as bad as some of them say. Maybe they've changed management.
Anyway here here goes.
The rooms are adequate and are cleaned every day. The air con worked well but was a little noisy when trying to sleep. The mini bar wasn't really a bar (no alcohol or soft drink) but we got 2 bottles of water every day. Our room overlooked the entertainment area and although it was noisy it finished at about10.30-11pm. The bathroom was clean with towels changed daily. There is a TV with a few English channels and there is plenty of storage space for 2 people. The balcony was very small but ok for drying towels, /clothes. You could fit 1 chair on it but nothing else.
The entertainment at night was poor and we never went to it although we could hear it. The staff tried hard but they could do to get some acts in.
There was a coffee machine outside and soft drinks were available in the restaurant and at the bar. There was only 1 bar working and the staff were quick. The bar at reception was never open.you can get beer, shorts, soft drinks and coffee. The food in the restaurant is good with salad, soup, various meats and pasta and cakes/sweets. You can get burgers or bolognese in the afternoon and biscuits + coffee.
The beach is a couple of minutes walk away with plenty of sun beds and there is a bar serving soft drinks. There are water sports available.
The sunbeds are an issue around the pool. They could do too make more space for them, perhaps move some tables which no one was using near the bar. You need to get up early to get one around the pool.
The location of the hotel isn't good if you like shopping. You have to get a bus/taxi into town. There are a couple of shops nearby and they are quite cheap.
The photographer on site is good and there are various trips available to kos and surrounding areas. We did a 6 hour boat trip for £15 pp inc food + coffee/tea but we were charged extra for cans of coke. £1.50 for a small can!
This hotel is a 3star not a 4, but it's clean and the food is good if repetitive.
We enjoyed our holiday but it could have been better.
We booked this hotel as a late deal (3 wks before departure) the transfer to the airport on the way home should have taken 1 hour but the driver got lost and it took 2 and half hours.
