This weekend the hotel was fully booked and the service level does suffer. Clueless waiters, chaotic breakfast buffet even if generous. The Spa influences the food and beverage choices so interesting waters and vegetable juices. Certainly not at the level of the Ortakoy Radisson Blu in Istanbul targeting only the domestic market so much fewer options were a dissappointment. Pricey or European level average. For when you don't mind spending I suppose. My Spa treatment, a Swedish massage was probably the best I ever had.
All you can ask for in a resort. Several areas of access to a private beach lots of sun lounges on the sand and next to all the pools and also bean bags on the piers. Rooms were amazing very comfortable beds , excellent air conditioner and flow of shower was superb. I stayed in an exexutive garden room which had an outdoor porch with both sea and garden views. Hairdryer was very weak so bring your own if needed. You can catch a minbus right out the front of the hotel to go to Cesme or Alacati. Staff were all very welcoming and pleasant. I only had one issue where i wanted to extend for 1 more night and reception staff assisted and gave me a price however next morning the same staff member gave me a price which was 60tl more and tried to make it as though i was wrong. By the end of it he apologised and said he gave the wrong price but it ruined what was originally an overall excellent experience.
