Zen Phaselis Princess Resort & Spa
Ranked #19 of 21 Hotels in Tekirova
Reviewed 14 August 2017

Except of location, nothing was good. The room was dirty with very old furniture and the bathroom was terrible, and the cleaning team didn^t clean it properly. The food was fresh but because of a lot of numbers of Russian tourists usually the best dishes got over quickly, the hotel team was arrogant and there was a man which was a kind of helper in supervising the territory, he used to touch our child on the cheeck, when she was alone, terrible.....And there are a lot of homeless dogs on the beach.
Now this hotel is renamed in Larissa phaselis princess...pay attention

I went to this hotel last year and loved it. Yes there were mostly Russian guests. It was a bit of fun going to turkey and learning to speak Russian. The staff and locals were very accommodating and even when their English wasn't great really put effort into helping us. Most people spoke great English though. I loved trying to speak Turkish too when we did meet people who didn't understand English. It was a great location for visiting the local sights the region is famous for. I would really recommend the travel agent just outside the gate for day excursions.

Room Tip: Near the front for a good view. The rooms at the back would be quieter though.

All was good until we've reached the hotel. We had arrived at 10 am, so we had to wait for 4 hours before we could enter our rooms. The stuff appeared to be unfriendly, they didn't smile just for one time in seven days we were there. They didn't know basic English, just Russian, because the main guests there were Russians, Ukrainians, Moldovans. Okay, i do understand russian, even though i express myself better in English, but how do stuff talk to people who are not russians and inform them if they do not know basic english or german? First they had given us a room that smelled horrible, smelled like pee in the bathroom and mold in the room. It was unbelieveable, because they agency was told us it was a five star hotel. There was an insupportable hot weather, 45 Celsius in the midday and 30 in the midnight. The air conditioning didn't work at all. Maybe just one hour a day it could have given a little bit colder air than on the outside. We had to take a very cold shower before going to sleep because you were all sweating in another case. The rooms were awful, old soviet conditioners, old styled bathroom, of course the room was old too. We hadn't even had drawers where to put our clothes!!! The food was good, but not as various as in other five star hotels in turkey. The beach is not made from sand, but pebbles. The sunbeds were dirty. The pools were good, but the water was very hot so you coudnt cool yourself. No discos, which is very bad, this is for the first time i went to bed at 10 pm while on holiday. We had also found some turkish beetles and ants in our room. We couldn't have thought it can get any worse, but the hotel appeared to surprise us again with the bath, it didn't work so we called a mechanic to repair it. In the minibar they have putted just 1.5 liters of water a day, in a room for four person. We couldn't drink some beer, some juices or any other carbonated drinks while staying into the rooms. Worst clean service, they didn't clean all the corners like they used to in other hotels. The only good things i can say about this hotel is that the Mediterranean sea has a very clean, crystalline and warm water, the nature on the territory of the hotel is wonderful, and the view to the big mountains are stunning; even though i was on the Corfu island in Greece, where the nature was more, more and more picturesque than here. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone, don't look at the astonishing pictures on the web, the photos are photoshopped or they are old ages now. The price was goof for a seven days hosteling, but the hotel's not worthy a five star name. I would highly recommend Royal Alhambra Palace situated in Side, Turkey. Best hotel i went to ever in Turkey!!! Reconsider your option, because Turkey has amazing hotels that are much way cheaper and better than this one! Thanks!!!

I go to Turkey every year on Vacations and this is the WORSE hotel I stayed in these 11 years. I do not even know where to begin... The staff is rude, not welcoming and most of them don't even speak basic English. The animation was also mainly in Russian therefore we never understood anything. The hotel is not that clean and the A.C in the room often did not work properly. And what to say about the food? simply disgusting- everything was spicy and there was lack of choices.
I personally love Tekirova for the amazing beach with warm & clean water and the perfect climate, therefore DO GO in this town but please choose a different hotel (I would highly recommend Rixos premium Tekirova :)
