We recently returned from a 2 week holiday in June at the Oludeniz Resort.
Check in at the Hotel was quick and a porter was swiftly called to take us to our room. On the confirmation from Thomson we expected a twin - bedded room with private balcony, bathroom and W.C. In reality we were allocated a double bed in a poky little room, no private balcony and a wash room consisting of a basin with no plug and just a small glass shelf above big enough to hold toothbrushes. deodorants, a spare toilet roll and not much else, a toilet with an old fashioned pully chain and a drainage hole in the floor for showering purposes. It was so small that part of the door had been gouged out to enable it to open past the sink situated immediately inside the door. As there was no private balcony, just a public walkway to the other rooms.you couldn't have the door open, so with just a smallish window very little natural light reached the room, all rather depressing.
We went straight to reception to ask to be moved to a more suitable room and lo and behold 2 more people in the room beneath us were already there for the same purpose. We were told the hotel etc. was fully booked so it was impossible to move us.Nor were the 4 of us the only ones. There was much evidence of chopping and changing of rooms. It seems that management will quite happily allocate these sub- standard rooms if they can get away with it. For the record the number to avoid is 3126,and anything else in that block. However after several visits to reception we were eventually moved on the third day. Forgot to mention that the original room backed onto the main bar open until 2am, so lots of chatting until the small hours and not a lot of sleep for the first 2 nights !!
Now for the good news - our new accommodation was fully up to brochure standard and situated in an attractive building in a delightful village setting ; lots of natural light coming in and bliss a good nights sleep !! Feeling much better by day 4 we were able to enjoy our holiday - such a pity we weren't able to spend the whole fortnight in room 603.
We found the food very good, a wide selection of breads, pastries, fruit, yoghurt, cereals etc. at breakfast along with the hot section. Lunch and dinner always a good selection of breads, cold buffet and salad, the hot food section and desserts to die for. The waiters, bar staff and housemaids were all very friendly. All in all we were more than happy with the resort, apart from the first few days. Good food, friendly service, good location, and the paragliding is something you won't normally see elsewhere.
Two small reservations. No white rum unless you paid for it, so take a tip and buy a bottle on the way out, and the boccia advertised in the brochure was non - existent.
Incidentally, our Thomson transfer outbound was interminable on the coach included in our deal. Less hardy travellers might wish to consider making alternative arrangements.
