“Basic and cheap. Don't expect much.”
I booked the holiday for the Easter break, which we got as a last minute deal 3 weeks before we jetted off. It was the cheapest holiday that we could find for all-inclusive (around £650 from Belfast) to Marmaris, Turkey.
When we arrived at the hotel at around 5am, the guy on reception was pleasant enough and knew a good bit of English thankfully. He didn't really explain much, and just handed us the key and pointed us in the right direction.
Once in the room on the 3rd floor we didn't know how to turn on the lights, but still noticed that there was two single beds instead of a double. I immediately went back down to get some answers. The guy was understanding, and said there wasn't any clean rooms available until the next day. Plus the key goes into a wee slot with a red light underneath it. We made due by pushing the two beds together as we were knackered at this point.
The view we awoke to was soo good that we decided not ask for a double room incase the view was worse. The room was basic, but we didn't expect much for the price. It could do with a few drawers and more hangers because we had to live out of the suitcase mostly. The shower didn't have a door, but everything else was up to spec.
The cleaners don't change your bed everyday, and they didn't change our bin for 3 days, so we left them a big bag of rubbish to enjoy when we checked out.
The restaurant is well kept, just like the outside bar and swimming pool which is sparkling. The food is basic chips and rice, with a different focus each night. I would recommend the chicken as the best! Avoid the breakfast though!!
The staff are pleasant and helpful, and one knew us as "2 beer" because that's all I ever said to him. He even waved us goodbye. The hotel manager is always around and is a lovely fella.
This hotel is cheap, so don't expect much for the price. This was mine and my girlfriends first holiday away together, and it has helped me realise that i shouldn't just go for the cheapest.
If your on a budget, its an ideal place to stay.
I read the previous reviews before going which made me want to cancel the whole thing, but overall, it was fantasic!
We stayed in room 1310 which had an amazing view of the mountains. Anywhere facing the road is ideal...
