Fantastic cheap get away for me and my mate!
Loved it here! The area itself is beautiful, hotel is a little bit out but it's a short walk into town, or you can get a taxi for very cheap from the hotel amazingly easily. The hotel was beautiful. The views from the restuaurant were stunning. It obviously wasnt a 5* hotel, but thats not what we paid for! I expected it to be much worse and was pleasently surprised! The food was lovely and there was enough choice to make sure you had something you liked every day. You will not go hungry, I promise you.
Room itself was lovely and modern, plus cleaned well. However, it was very small. There may have been other rooms which were bigger, but ours was very small. We managed for the week comfortably, but I went with a good friend. If you didn't know someone as well, it may not be a good idea.
The service was the best ever. We spent some time at the pool bar and had briliant nights. The staff are incredibly friendly and looked after us well. I have never been to a hotel where the staff were this good.
I would definitely go back again. As a cheap get away it was more than I could have asked for.

I went here with my girlfriend in September 2012 and was by far the best holiday of our lives. The staff were so friendly and cared about your holiday (how many times been to an English hotel and meet by ms sour face). The rooms weren't huge but they were clean, comfy and well maintained. Fridge stocked with 2 water bottles everyday and cleaned daily with fresh towels and linen. The pool was beautiful and the entertainment was hilarious (gizmo and gadget) the food did repeat a bit by the second week but gave us a good reason to check out the local restaurants which by the way were fantastic and great value for money. All in all this was a fantastic holiday and fantastic value for money. would of liked a little more range with the all inclusive drinks but cant have it all can you. If you do go here make sure you go paragliding (was amazing and amazing views of this beautiful country and if you go into town for a few drinks look out for a place called eski bar all cocktails 241 at ten Turkish lira ( so effectively about £1.70 per cocktail) all in all fantastic and cant wait to return cause we defiantly will.

Hotel from the outset looked quite nice. When it came to the 'all inclusive' that was a big disapointment. The drinks were only available until 11pm then there was a charge. The range of drinks available was very disapointing, it consisted of one type of beer, one choice of white and red wine, vodka, rum or whiskey. If you are diabetic like one person in our party, there is only diet coke available. Hence we had to buy our own in from the super market. The food was just edible, (although the snacks provided were quite good) i was one of the lucky people to catch food poisoning in the hotel, which was a terrible ending to the holiday. The only good thing was the entertainment.

nice location spoiled by staff
day two had a nice breakfast all seemed set for a nice holiday.
we then bought tickets for a barbecue night went to outdoor barbecue nobody there so went to bar for a drink i had a gin and tonic only tonic was last years and flat and gin weak. we then noticed that food was on hot trays in restaurant when said we could serve ourselves we got some chicken and salad and i did wonder if this chicken was from last nights welcoming dinner which we dident get as flight delayed.as we had been in restaurant for a long time we decided to go for a walk whereipon a member of staff screamed at us for leaving early accusing us not likeing there food and other things so we never whent to the restaurant again.
later there was a blocked drain outside our front door if someone above used toilet or shower manhole lifted and flooded patio took staff three days to clear
first the bartender came to look coudenet see any thing as mid afternoon and said its ok and it took another three days for maintenance man to fix.
so i did wonder if people in cheaper units were considered a nuisance by staff.

Stayed at the Destina for 1 week towards the end of September.
On arrival in the early hours of the morning greeted at reception was dealt with efficiently and taken to our room. We was in block A the rooms are small but decorated nicely. on reading other reviews i would agree that yes you do get the odd guests that have no consideration for other guests when coming in at all hours. Also in block A when the all inclusive drinks stop at 11pm the other bar opens till 5am i recommend you take ear plugs with you. Also the door has a large gap so do what i did and just block it with your beach towels to keep out some of the noise and light. The food was good always found something nice and the puddings are lovely so are the pancakes. snack time in the afternoon the pizza's are lovely. The hotel is kept very clean the gardener does a wonderful job. A short 15 min walk down to Hisaronu town . We had a nice relaxing holiday here. Went to olu Deniz a couple times as the views are lovely.

Full of Fun
Myself and best mate booked Destina for a quiet break away in the Sun. We were both impressed by the destination, and staff. Alot of trips on offer to fill up your week. Felt comfortable in the hotel, around staff and other tourists. Definetly recommended

The area is beautiful - lovely scenery to look at and lots to do in Hisaronu which is a 20 minute walk away.
The pool area is lovely - pool itself is large and you can relax while looking at the mountainous scenery.
The staff work very hard and are welcoming. However our trip was somewhat spoiled by a horrible stomach upset which affected lots of guests; I came home very poorly and had some time off work which is not ideal.
Sleep quality was also poor - door slamming and guests shouting at all times of the night. We'd just get to sleep around 4am then woken by the first call to prayer at 5:30am. I was glad to get back to my own peaceful bedroom!
