Im not a regular review writer but having just arrived back from this hotel i really feel the need to let people know what a brilliant place this is to stay. I my husband and our six year old son have just spent two weeks in Olu Deniz and had a fantastic time, we were there for a friends wedding and most of the party stayed at this hotel.
On arrival at the hotel we were checked in pretty quickly and a bell boy carried our cases to our room, which was just as id requested (low floor and pool view) so we were off to a good start. The room itself was adequate, double bed and a set of bunks, fridge, tv, air con, dressing table and a wardrobe. Storage was limited and after unpacking hubby's and sons clothes i lived out of the case, but this wasnt really a problem for me. The room wasnt the best ive stayed in but it definately wasnt the worst and to be honest your not really in it that much so on the whole we were happy.
The hotel has 3 swimming pools, the main large one where the activities happen which also has a slide, a slightly smaller one which has a childrens shallower pool attached and a relax pool which children are not allowed. We didnt use the relax pool but we used the other too and both were brilliant, theyre clean and theres plenty of sunbeds to go around, the only bad point in my opinion is that the pools and slide are not supervised so there were kids coming down the slide on lilos and walking up it which did make me feel a little uncomfortable. Daytime activities were water gym twice a day, water polo, darts and belly dancing, all good fun and kept us entertained.
Now onto the dining room and the food which i really cant fault, yes, its all a bit samey and buffet food on an all inclusive is never piping hot but, theres a salad selection which is massive, plenty of fresh bread, a hot section which was generally, rice, chips, a couple of vegetable choices and a couple of meat choices then on top of that there's always something cooking outside such as BBQ turkey, kebab meat or fish. The sweet selection is varied and fruit was usually available too. The waiters are friendly and i have to give Ramazan a special shout out, nothing is too much hardwork for them.
Onto the bars, we had one pretty much outside our room then theres the main one outside the dining room where the entertainment happens. Both are staffed well with most drinks available, the only dissapointment for me was that rum is not included in the all inclusive, this includes barcardi (my choice of beverage unforunately) but it wouldnt stop me from returning.
The evening entertainment was varied, we had belly dancing, fire breathers, glass walkers, dancers of all kinds, a kids mini disco, acrobats, bingo and a music quiz. It was all good fun.
We didnt use it but the hotel has a towel service, i think it was 20tl refundable deposit and for this you could take a towel then swap it every day so there really is no need to take your own beach towels which saves on your luggage allowance.
The safety deposit boxes cost 3tl a day which is non refundable so be prepared to pay.
The hotel has free wifi in the reception area which is handy.
Id recommend the turkish bath at the hotel, reasonable price and a great way to start your holiday.
The hotel is situated in a perfect place, not far from the beach, shops or restaurants.
If your interested in boat trips and paragliding we went with focus which is situated just past the kiddies playground on the beach front.
We have had a brilliant holiday and wouldnt think twice about staying here again so if your considering this hotel id have to say book it :)
