this hotel is newly constructed one in Alanya at Incekum bay. Hotel really rocks due to modernly decorated rooms, private beach and excellent service. I strongly recommend this hotel to couples who go for some romance in almost secluded bay. There is another 4 star hotel behind gold island ,which is serving for adults only. But, four star hotel is not as good as five star gold island, yet guests of four star hotel can take advantage of five star facilities. We stayed in the gold island, all the rooms have sea view thanks to the shape of hotel and peninsular location. the rooms of which numbers ending in 07-08-09 and 10 look to the pool area and sea together. Food was excellent, They have world famous cook in the hotel and you can even find every local taste such as cezerye, turkish delight, gullac, keskek, I really want to thank to Kerim Aydogan, owner of the hotel, who did a great job. To me:
Pros: not crowded, you dont have to wait in line to get a service. nice sea water, far from the main road, so you wont listen to traffic at night as it is the case for most road side hotels around Alanya. Excellent food, excellent service when compared to other all inclusive hotels in and around the region.
cons: poor animation, animation team sucks, they were the worst team I ever saw in beach hotels in Turkey, even worse than four star hotels. They cant speak english well. They backchatting the tourists (of course in Turkish), and try to take advantage of their position in flirting the tourist women. Altough there are Turkish families around they dare to talk about setting up flirts for their friends from Tourists. Such behaviors are disregarded by Turkish tradition and customs, as a turkish family we find such attitude so rude and unacceptable. So the animation team is not professional,
Main pool is small.
Aqupark is not fun there are only three sliding ramps, not too exciting.
we had problem due to the armband they gave. Some waiters refused to serve alcoholic beverages because they thought we were staying in the four star hotel behind gold island. Although the manager solved the problem by giving us a new armband. Some other personnel still asked whether we are staying at the hotel or not. At the checkout I told the receptionist about the armband issue, and she replied that those armbands are for four star hotel not the five star resort. Anyway, I did not the get the point why they did that to us.
