We had specifically asked for a room on the ground floor due to mother-in-law and her ability to climb lots of stairs. We were given a room overlooking the front of the hotel which although was noisy at times was not the fault of the hotel as this came from the residential buildings around us. Room itself was ok, towels changed regularly (just dumped them on the floor every couple of days). The shower was good although it did seem that we had a better shower than others in the hotel as we always had hot sometimes scalding water, downside was that the door did not close properly and water tended to creep over the floor of the bathroom which was a bit of a slip hazard for mother in law but overcame this by dumping the standing mat just under the door to catch the overspill. Sheets changed regularly and beds made everyday. Beds were also comfortable and clean.
Location is good, on the local dolmus route and the hospital just a short walk away (with an elderly relative this had to be considered!) and a couple of chemists down the road too.
We stayed all inclusive which covers Turkish food with a nod to European palate, essentially if you dont like vegetables Turkey is not for you. Meat can be expensive as can fish therefore budget hotels which cater for the all inclusive guests are on a tight budget themselves. Personally I could always find something to eat. Breakfast was Turkish, there was a cereal bar but cereal in Turkey is not up to much and there was yoghurt. Plenty of jam, honey and spreads available.
Main meals were edible and although not as tasty as some meals I have had in Turkey was certainly not bland. There was always choice.
The bar choice is limited and Turkish wine is not the best in the world so has to be 'modified' with a drop of lemonade to make it drinkable but when one considers that this is a Muslim country and the taxes on alcohol have gone through the roof in recent years you are not going to get a good bottle of French or Chilean red. Vodka and gin were fine.
Overall the stay was good, staff were all good although there were times when the bar staff seemed to have disappeared off the face of the planet! English is spoken by most of the face to face staff and they are all happy to try and help. Mother in law loved that they all rushed to help her whenever she appeared!
Having stayed here some 5 or 6 years ago I would have no problem returning again,it is a reasonably priced hotel providing a good holiday. Staff helpful, food acceptable and the hotel clean and in a good location for town or the beach.
Thank you Blue Lagoon :-)
