This was definitely the most memorable of the 5 hotels we stayed in during our Turkish stay, partly because we liked it, partly because it was comedy. I’m rating it highly with certain caveats detailed below
It’s April, out of season, but Antalya is busy enough. This hotel, 90 minutes away, does feel remote despite being surrounded by 10 other hotels. They’re all deserted at this time of year.
It’s clearly the nicest hotel in the area, despite being cosmetically perfect, they were even touching up the paint work here and there. The room is perfect, as are the lobby areas. Its a new building, but internally decorated as if 200 years old. We smiled and enjoyed it’s unusual and slightly fake opulence.
A friendly man met us and checked us in. He pushed to know whether we would eat dinner - there was no menu, so we loosely agreed fish for her and chicken for me.
Dinner followed, and the same receptionist is now waiter. We were joking that he was the only staff member, much like a small B&B. The food was absolutely excellent.
I have sympathy with a hotel trying to stay open in such a low season for them - we were the only guests, and not paying enough to fund their staff costs. Service was execellent, the skeleton staff worked hard.
There were some problems: WIFI was dodgy, failing to work for the second day of our stay at all. There were four power cuts (one leaving us in absolute pitch black in the spa). Water failed for a whole afternoon, mid way through shower.
We arrived at 2.00 AM and were greeted warmly.
Rooms were big enough and comfortable with a lovely balcony.
Bathroom was clean and well decorated.
Food was great and varied each meal.
Staff were pleasant and eager to help.
Turkish Bath and massage was fantastic.
Pool was lovely.
The drinks all day by the pool was amazing.
I really can't fault this hotel for anything.
A warm Mediterranean climate, beaches, and rich cultural history make Alanya a popular destination on the Turkish Riviera. Notable sights include Damlataş Cave and the 13th-century Alanya Castle. Long, inviting stretches of sandy beaches run nearly the entire length of the city, with the Taurus Mountains providing a backdrop to the warm Mediterranean waters.
