We moved here after a bad start at the Pink Palace hotel and what a difference two 3* hotels can be.
Rooms were all recently refurbished, clean magnolia walls with red feature walls and trim to match, shower rooms new tiling and fittings. Rooms are in 3 blocks (A,B &C) and have 3 floors in each block.
Hotel reception, toilets, dining area also looked refurbished - bright and airy, there are some areas that could do with smartening up like the pool toliets and the pool table area but is probably me being picky.
Staff superb and friendly.
Large pool with small Jacuzzi pool above the pool bar, have to say the water was freezing until you got used to it but was lovely once in (It was October).
Turkish bath on site was cheap and good - but could be hotter for me, being honest it had probably only just been switched on for us as it wasn't being used to much by the guests.
Pizzas and burgers at snack time 3.30-5.00 were freshly made and excellent.
Meals were excellent, have stayed in some 4* hotels in Turkey and the quality here would give them a run for thier money.
Free bus to the hotels blue lagoon beach leave at 10.30am return at 5pm was great, loungers and brolly free when you got there, food and drinks available from the beach bar - chargeable but tasty.
Hotel is 15-20min walk to Hisaranu centre, 15 miniute walk to Nandos on the main road, where you get the Dolmus to Fethier (£1.50), 15 minute walk the opposite way to the Pink Palace on the main road and get Dolmus to Olu Deniz (£1) but it is UP HILL on the way back - no good for wheel chairs.
Only comment would be the rooms should have a kettle and brew facilities,
The corridoors/rooms were noisy and ecoed, the 1.5 inch gap under the room door didn't help (we rolled a towel up like a draft excluder), also there was a dog barking when people arrived in the middle of the night, think this was the gate security guard dog - only doing his job I suppose!
Overall very good for the price.
