Great hotel and apartments! Ideal for couples, families and all ages
This was a really friendly hotel, the staff were brilliant and made our holiday such good fun.
The hotel was in an amazing location, far enough for a good night sleep but only a 5 minute walk to the shops beach and restraunts.
I'd definitely go back.
It was clean and had everything we needed in the apartments, a fridge a kettle a cooker.
The apartment rooms were so big it was unbelievable actually.
Lots of guests had returned this year from previous years.
All in all a great place to stay !

We know what we're getting and we still come back.
Have been staying in the apartments since the year after the management at the neighbouring Ekin Hotel took them over.
They’re big and spacious with a fridge, kettle, and 2 cooker rings. Beds are not too comfortable if you’re used to memory foam at home, showers are ok but water temperature is variable and not thermostatically controlled. All that said, they provide a reasonably peaceful haven, acceptable levels of cleanliness, decent sized balconies and are reasonably located. studios are smaller with very limited view and roofline ceilings. As you can tell I’m not going to rave about the rooms, although I admit that on the whole they have more good than bad points, and I do like them.
You are going to have to watch your children too as it’s not a suitable place for them to run around unsupervised especially if they are not strong swimmers as both pools are a bit close to a restricted passageway, and floors can be slippery when wet.
Breakfasts are available in the restaurant, there is a typical Turkish option as well as breakfast snacks and full English. What we do is pay up front for Turkish breakfasts for the length of our stay, then if we want something else we pay for it and just get bread, cheese and coffee off the Turkish table, it works out about the same price. Other food is good, especially Ekin Kebab, Sac Kavurma and the Staff meal usually provides good value if it’s available.
Staff are great, and regulars are usually willing to chat when you want to and leave you alone when you don’t. All in all, no pressure, no grief. A lovely relaxing place for a holiday.
The Pool table is hilarious, it’s not flat, it’s not level, balls are not round, some pockets roll in, others roll out, cushions do not bounce true. Who cares? It’s free! Don’t be so serious you’re on holiday!
