We traveled as a party of 12, 3 familys with 6 teenagers between us and i have to say that the orange garden apartments were lovely. Sinan the manager could not have been more helpful, and his whole family were lovely and always smiling even tho it was only sinan that spoke good english.
The apartments are a very good size and well furnished with plenty of wardrobe space (which is very rare). They are basic but have a good fridge and the air conditioning works really well and covers whole apartment including the bedroom. (and was needed in august) Towards the end of our second week Sinans dad took very poorly and the running of the hotel went a little irratic but as sinan was rushing back and forth to the hospital that was to be expected and you can not blame him for that.(Hope yr dad is better sinan). The pool in the hotel is a little small and is in the shade some of the day but there is a lovely large pool across the road behind the shop which is very good as well. Kemer is mainly filled with russians and we heard very few british voices but we got a lovely welcome of restaurant and shop owners alike. we ate out all off the time (as im not on holiday to cook) and had some fab meals, the meals at the orange garden were lovely to and we ate there a few nights and they also had a fab turkish night. The towel and bedding change was every 2 days and the lady that cleaned the rooms was fab, if any dishes were left in the sink she did them and she folded yr clothes for you as well (would have brought her home with me if i could lol)
The beach in kemer is fab and we were well looked after by the boys at AKVA beach bar who picked us up and brought us home in their bus all of the time,
Overall a very nice hotel, cant understand the complaints on here as it isnt 5 star and you get what you pay for, but very clean nice rooms is my main priority and that is what we got.

We stayed at the orange garden apartment for 10 days in late July. We had a very spacious apartment on the second floor overlooking the pool. This was great because I could watch my two girls in the swimming pool from my room. The apartment was cleaned every other day, which suited us perfectly, Sinan the manager and his whole family were always available to assist and often arranged transport for tours etc. It is a three star apartment and you are not gonna get five star luxuries, but it is absolutely adequate and tucked away in a more peaceful setting. Kemer is a nice place for relaxation. What was really nice was that a lot of Turkish people were also holidaying at the Orange Garden apartments, it gave a more cultural experience. Very often one of the ladies would bring gifts of fruit and biscuits for my girls, it was a lovely touch. The Turkish people are really hospitable, and if you've got young children I would reccommend this hotel. Quite often my girls had the pool to themselves, there was also a little paddling area for little tots to paddle in. There's a small local shop near the hotel, a little pricey, try the supermarket on the main road for better value. Definitely check out duden waterfalls in antalya, the eternal flames of Chimaera, try a mountain jeep it was a beautiful place to visit and we'll definitely visit again. And at the end of our stay we got a personal send off from the manager and his family.

Room Tip: Room 210 was very spacious, cool and overlooked the pool.

stayed for 1 week in September, on arrival we have been placed into room on ground floor with old dirty sofa beds, broken mirror, no hot water, no bulb in bedroom with no balcony. Ground floor rooms are below pool level so smell of bleach leaves very unpleasant feeling, also there is no privacy as everyone can see you all the time and you can't leave window and door open as it's not secure . Despite notice about vacant rooms the manager told us no other rooms available however was quick to move us on 1st floor when he discovered we have prepared to book alternative hotel and move out on 2nd day. Room 201 was considerably better however my children's holiday was spoiled. Also on arrival we have paid for WI FI access as Sinan(Manager) was adamant it would be accessible from rooms however later I have discovered the signal was very week and unable to use apart from balcony. Would not recommend this hotel unless you are on strict budget and have no other alternatives. The family running hotel have british connection therefore I would not consider some of previous reviews impartial.
Please note Kemer is quite expensive place therefore would make sense to book all inclusive resorts which would cost you double however when comparing how much time and money we spent over our stay I can assure you that would be efficient.

Room Tip: avoid any rooms on ground floor at any cost, the hotel is in shade so would not advise to pay for airconditioner on arrivaludon't

We stayed at the Orange Gardens for 3 weeks in August/September 2011. We were given a room on the top floor, which is actally in the attic. Having stayed in several self-catering apartments in various resorts in Turkey we have to say that this particular apartment was pretty poor. In other hotels we have always had a separate sleeping and eating area, but this 'apartment' consisted of a bedroom with a fridge and a single hotplate. the wooden roof sloped down into the room so I managed to bang my head several times before getting used to walking around with a permanent stoop.

There are no lifts in the hotel and as we are both getting on a bit we asked if we could have a room on a lower floor if one become available, but were told that this was not possible.

The bathroom was a bit scruffy (especially the shower) but the room was cleaned every day and there were fresh towels each day as well.

The pool is very small and has no shallow end so may not be suitable for young children, also in the three weks that we were there we did not see any pool maintenance or cleaning carried out.

On the plus side the food was reasonable and the beer was the cheapest that you will find in Kemer (5 lira for a half-litre of Efes). The hotel is well placed to get to all of the parts of the town centre.

Kemer itself is a relatively new resort and this is evidenced by the fact that all of the strrets contain new shopping areas that cater particularly for the Russians, who seem to make up the vast majority of the visitors, so there are plenty of leather, fur and gold and silver outlets. There is no bazaar area that you find in most Turkish resorts. The town does have a Tuesday market that will allow you to practice your bartering skills.

Moonlight Park is well worth a visit and there are several pleasant parks in the town. In every other resort that we have visited all of the bars and restaurants advertise the beer prices ouside the establishment, but in Kemer none of them do. We soon discovered the reason for this as we found the price of a beer varied from between seven and nine lira, which is rather expensive compared to most other resorts. Be aware of prices shown in the shops as they are invariably in euros or dollars, but never in lira.

All in all we enjoyed our stay in Kemer and the Orange Garden was OK as a place to sleep, but we honestly could not recommend it.

Room Tip: Don't have a top floor room!

A little bit sceptical after reading one or two reviews, however look at percentage of excellent reviews overall and you therefore should ignore the bad reviews. We arrived 6 a.m. morning and was greeted with the father of the owners who couldn't speak a word of English but who had a smile fixed on his face throughout the holiday, no matter how many hours he worked and how little sleep he had!

We had a studio which was obviously smaller than the apartments, but still had plenty of space for clothes etcetera. There was only one ring in the studio which we were aware of from the reviews and so took a slow cooker with us for an additional resource.

The air conditioning was must because of the high temperatures. Sinan the manager could not do enough for you, asking throughout our stay whether there was anything he could help us with, ensuring no problems throughout our stay and what can I say about his hardworking and lovely wife! This lady cleans the rooms every two days to a very high standard, better than I have experienced at any holiday place. every four days the towels and beds are changed. We even had our clean towels left on the bed shaped like two swans and a loveheart. What a lovely thought.

The pool is small but homely. There is a large pool across the road, at the back of the supermarket which we used a lot, however the one at Orange Garden was cooler and more refreshing with the heat we experienced.

Sinan offered free return transport to a 5 star hotel which we took advantage of and had a great day out experiencing the hospitality of turkish people.

We ate out at Fridays Restaurant which is a must as the food is delicious and also ate at the Orange Garden. The Orange Garden was a little more expensive, however the food was I have to say very delicious, which was also cooked by Sinan's wife.

Sinan rung our travel firm to confirmreturntimes, the transpoirt to ensure we were picked up and waved our family off after wishing us well on our return home.

Overall, we had a great time at the Orange, Garden, the people there work extremely hard, to make sure we enjoy their turkish hospitality and they should be proud of themselves on the constantly good reviews they are receiving.
