just arrived back this morning at 6am yawn, from the xanthos apartments, well what can i say after reading the fab reviews myself and my family were really looking forward to staying at these apartments. What a shock!! We knew the apartments were basic but these took the buscuit!! Cave would be a better description, we are a family of four (two lads 12 and 14) only one cupboard to put all four peoples clothing in is a bit basic to say the least so we lived out of suitcases for most of the holiday. We were allocated room 107, if you are allocated this room, ask to be moved straight away or else you will get no sleep at all, (its right next to the dinning area and bar). We moved rooms after two sleepless nights, after beeing there a few days we found out that three rooms had been broken into an monies and electrical equipment were stolen as the people slept, we felt really sorry for one of the parties as all there money, jewlery and valuables were taken, the rep did nothing for them and even charged them £80 to make 5 calls to England so relatives could wire them some money, these lads had over a week left on their holiday with only £120 left to last four of them. The staff were not very helpful either, we could not understand that you could not even bring your own bottled water to the pool or even the grass area unless you bought it from the bar, i thought this was self catering accomodation, the staff were friendly at first when you by the food and drink and book their nights (we went on the turkish night which was good) we noticed that as we ate out in the local resturants (Robin Hood excellent food and great staff say Hi to Joe if you go) the staff tend to avoid you and make you feel uneasy when you go in, the staff will be very welcoming though if it was a bunch of girls staying, the rep was usless spent most of his time getting too friendly with one of the female guests (if you know what i mean). This was our first time to Turkey and can say it will proberbly be the last, the weather was great, most of the locals were really helpfull and more than willing to help you out (got a lift to the marina on back of a scooter from Joe at the Robin Hood) the trips are good value for money as are the clothes. But i would not recommend the xanthos aopartments to my friends, we dont usually moan, quiet a few other people we spoke to were not happy at all in the apartments either so we were not alone. The local transport is excellent and really cheap only 1.75 lire to Icmeler which was a nice place, wish we stayed there, even the staff on the beach were great they put your towles on your beds and even put sun cream on your back, the did not hassel you either yo buy drinks or meals, you can even use their lylos if you want. This is just our personal holiday experience and hope it will not put you off going to Turkey, the people are very friendly, the weather HOT and some wonderful places to visit.
