Reviewed 9 July 2017 via mobile

We visited this hotel during July hot season. This hotel has nothing to do with 5 stars. Why?:

Last renovation was in 2007. since that time looks like no maintenance works were preformed there

No internet! There is some very low signal in lobby, but it is not enough to download instagram..

No ambience. Service on style "consume & leave "

Dirty sheets, unqualified room service

The hotel places around 1500 and the entertainment is very poor. Most of the guests spent time in lobby trying to catch an internet signal. No fun. Every night is boring.
Nevertheless once there was a gala night, so life band was playing. That was great till the moment when the staff started to take our tables & chairs away. The band was still playing for one hour more, so everyone left because it was uncomfortable to stand.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled as a couple

I'm an American and these types of all-inclusive deals are not so common, at least in my experience. I spent 9 days there in the beginning of May and really enjoyed my time. The food was good (no pork, being a Muslim country), in great varieties and quality. I read a few complaints and I just don't get what they were complaining about. The all-inclusive hard alcohol was cheap local stuff and you should drink it at your own risk, and no free rums were offered. The only beer is Efes and the local wines were ok.

So a note to all native English speakers - this hotel caters to Germans. That's not a bad thing but I was the only (native) English speaker there for my entire visit. The staff all spoke enough English and I didn't have any problems at all. But please understand that YOU will be the minority there and striking up a casual conversation isn't going to be in the cards. Add to that I could only find one English -speaking channel (BBC News) The guests were made up of 90% Germans and 10% Russians or Middle Easterns.

The room was wonderful and the maid changed our sheets daily, even though we didn't expect it or asked. The refrigerator is restocked daily.

I'd go back there in a heartbeat, but I recommend bringing a bottle or two of whatever you like to drink.

Try the Mexican restaurant!

In general I had a great time in this hotel from the first day till the end. A very good service and always with a smile. They mostly speak a good german but also with english was not at all a problem to communicate. I liked very much the room and all amenities. I felt very good even though I was alone. Profit from the beach, the sport activities organized by the hotel, etc. Did not manage to explore around as I had only 5 days and wanted to profit for the sun and the sea...

Room Tip: maybe if you are with the babys or you want to sleep early to avoid the main building as the night l...
