If I had wanted to book a 2 star hotel, then this place would have lived up to all my expectations.
However, it advertises itself as "5 star". On what basis, I have no idea!
Either the international criteria for 5 star hotels has changed radically, or this hotel has invented its own unique standard for measuring "luxury", "facilities", "guest experience", "friendliness", "entertainment" etc, etc.
A "superior room with sea view" turned out to be a small, poorly-furnished box with flashing neon lights on the "balcony" and two extra beds propped up against the wall (effectively halving the size of the room).
There WAS a sea view - technically. If you leaned precariously over the balcony and craned your head around the corner, the sea was visible.
The hotel was mostly full of Russians. This was not really an issue for me as I speak Russian - but I felt sorry for the handful of German and English guests as they could not communicate with the hotel staff who only speak Turkish and Russian.
The staff themselves are rude and ignorant.
The food was bland and badly presented. The drinks were also poor. The beer was clearly watered down and the spirits were poured from unmarked bottles. I avoided these in case I went blind! Coke, sprite and other soft drinks were poor imitations of the real thing.
Advertising these hotels as "5 star" is damaging to Expedia. I would now be very cautious in taking Expedia's star ratings at face value.
