The food is every day the same. Chicken, fried fish, and vegetables with bread. And what is left behind the day before is the soup. So we had goulash soup, rice soup, macaroni soup, ... :) And fish soup with fried fish in it. I'm not joking. The staff is really horrible. The don't like to work, and the act like that. They never say please or thank you. They throw everything to you, and with a look of "pfffff, I hate to be here". Everything is too much, unless you are blond and female. Then they try to get you in their bed.
The animation is really annoying. You have 2 guys of the animation and they think they are the men. In the beginning you think it's candid camera, but after 1 day, it's annoying. Also the Chinese guy always running around asking for "massage, massage". And then the hairdresser off course too, together with the photographer. The animation is a disaster. Around 2.30pm it's time for waterpolo. They smash so hard with the ball, all people leave the pool. And then they put the music so loud, and the 2 animation guys love it. All the guests hates it, but who cares. They are the men!
Even one day it was Champions League and Galatasaray played. The animation was: football. All music in the entire hotel was put off, and extra screens were installed to watch the football game. And off course, the commentary was in Turkish. So a big finger to all the guests/tourists. They don't about you. If you don't come, other people will (they think). They are the men!
Cleaning, pffff, the first days were horrible. It was an older turkish women, but they didn't clean. Towels is only every 3 days. They didn't clean. Even the sand of the beach was still in our room and the sheets were still the same. (of maybe also every 3 days?). But the last 2 days, we have a younger lady, and she cleaned good.
Internet, a joke! I booked this hotel because they had good internet (they promised). Because internet is important for my job. Well, during our stay, the internet almost never worked, and if it did, it was internet of the nineties. So slow. If I want to go to google, and I have to wait 2 minutes to load the page. But ey, why bother. You have already paid. And if you complain to the reception, hahaha, they don't care, but off course they will promise you everything you want. Tomorrow. :)
The shop below the hotel is too expensive. You are by far his best friend and you will get the best prices, because you are his best friend, but he rips you off. Go outside the hotel, take a walk, it's way cheaper, and better quality.
The hotel was overcrowded the last days. No places to sit down to eat, to drink, ...
Conclusion: no internet, boring food, cleaning qué?, horrible horrible staff, overcrowded, annoying people in the hotel trying to sell you all kind of things and don't know the word "no, please". And annoying irritating animation team.

So...this is the first time I've ever had the need to write a review. The food is OK, pretty boring and the same everyday (all inclusive). Service is fake and horrible and there is a cat running around the restaurant with a broken leg. Just awful.

Me and my family ordered a room here for a whole week. When we arrived we got our bags carried and it was a nice and warm welcoming. The staff manager was very pleasant and spoke good English. Though his co-workers didn't speak that well and wasn't that nice. Nice and small hotel room with a alright view from the 8'th floor. The food and drinks are alright If you order all inclusive, but I'd still recommend that you only order breakfast and lunch. Depends whom you are traveling with and what you enjoy but for me the food was boring. All in all a nice holiday

This was my 4th time in Turkey so I can good compare quality of the hotels I've stayed before. Unfortunately hotel Blue Star was not what we expected from 4 stars hotel. After coming back I can agree with all negative things I've read about it on forum or this website.

This is definitely not 4* hotel, not even good 3* maybe 2,5* - it's an old hotel en everything in it need urgent change. Rooms have very old furniture, lifts sometimes not working or working very very slow, swimming pools are small and always full because on the beach you must pay for beds (15 TL - 2 beds + parasol) so most of the guests not going there. We had to change a room after one night because of very noisy ventilation just next to our room. We stayed not in main round building (they say there is higher standard there) even we paid extra for standard rooms.

Hotel have in 90% German guests (info from person working there) - rest are Russian, Dutch and Polish. Unfortunately German guests are sorry to say but from "low-class" what you see on their behavior (aggressive, arguing, very nosy, waiting in long lines before opening restaurants then running to take food or reserve table before others, putting towels on sunbeds at 7 am). This we didn't notice that behavior by any other guests except Germans.

Food in hotel is not good and not in many options as for AL- all the time the same, chicken chicken en chicken. Once in our 10 days stay was turkish kofte, few times fish, once(!) was something with beef parts in sauce. Food is made definitely for Germans - kind of schnitzels, german version of potatoes and salads. If you want to try turkish food then go to restaurant in the city because in this hotel except 2-3 times during our stay I didn't eat anything turkish. I don't recommend this hotel for vegetarians because after 3 days you have nothing to eat except this what was already days before and it will not change.

Drinks are very limited in AL. Everybody drink beer because whiskey or vodka were not tasty. Wine was only in dry version.

About cleaning in hotel I can say only this - that towels are not change every day not even you put them on the floor - few times I had to look for a cleaning lady to get new ones. Room in out 10 days was cleaned only once (!!!) after we hang a card on the door to do that. Ladies take very easy money what you left on bed but except changing towels nothing was done. With this I never ever meet before in any hotel in any land!!!!

Be prepared that people in hotel speak almost not or very bad english (reception, cleaning ladies, waiters) - german is an official language there. Fortunately my partner speaks a little german otherwise was hard to communicate.

DON'T GO TO TURKISH BAD (hamam) IN HOTEL!!! It has nothing to do with real turkish bad and it's very expensive, there are working Thai ladies(!!!) what have totally not idea what turkish bad is (we had before in Fethiye in hamam for locals en now experience in hotel was not even 1% of this what should be). And don't buy any massages there (they try to convince you to do that) - my partner bought few and now directly after come back from holidays must go to physiotherapy because has pain in his back - because wrong made massage.

One good thing about hotel is that is near by (7 min walk) from Kleopatra Beach. Beach is very nice with sand, they have also a beach bar there. To city center is about 40 min walking.

If you want to but a tour or real turkish bad or rent a scooter we definitely recommend a 3rd tour office if you are walking on street to the beach - Monika Tour (Bugra Turizm). There is sitting a young lady outside of the office. Everything professional and with smile. She can also help you with all information you need about Alanya and speaks very good English, German and Polish.

Overall I recommend this hotel only to Germans - you will feel at home ;) or people with limited budget. We don't recommend this hotel to people who like to enjoy local food en like to have clean place to stay.
We found out from people in plane, that hotels outside of city (Konakli, Incekum, Okurcalar etc.) had higher standards en definitely better food so this would be our choice next time.

Fantastic holiday spent here June/July service good, food good, hotel clean and entertainment varied. Entertainment team and waiters/waitressess work hard to please guests. Two pols to use depending on your mood a lively noisey pool and a quiet relaxed pool area. Porters take your luggage to room on arrival which we were grateful for as it had been a long journey. Only negative was one receptionist was not as polite and helpful as others. Courtesy bus took you down to beach bar (included in your all inclusive) and into Alanya, but it was also a nice stroll down hill. Plenty attractions to keep yourself occupied. Ladies who cleaned rooms always left blankets or pj's foled into swans etc nice touch.

Room Tip: Wifi onky availabke in reception area.
