This is a cheap, low stars Hotel.
The rooms are spacious and all have a privat balcony towards the pool.
They try to keep it tidy, the bed sheets have stains but smell fresh.
The bathroom door could not be closed all the way and the shower curtain had mold stains.
They charge extra for AC. I think it was 5 Euro per day. Of course the expierenced travel knows how to run the AC without the remote control. Since it is against Hotel policy you should not stand on a chair, open the cover of the AC and push the "On"-button. Besides you won't be able to set a temprature amd the room will be freezy in no time.
The breakfast is basic turkish food: bread, cheese, olives, cucumber, tomatoes, boiled eggs, water melon and tea. The table covers always have crumbs and stains. There are cats and chickens running around the pool and this is also where you eat.
The staff is friendly, they even remember your name. The Hotel restaurant has a huge menu and all the meals I had where surprisingly great. Compared to restaurants elsewhere in Side the price was good too. You should eat there instead of eating out. They have local as well as international food - lots to choose from.
The pool area as well as the water is clean. There are plenty of trees that give shade and flowers and plants around the pool. The pool bar is the place of all action. They will have music until past midnight (which might get noisy if you try to sleep). They also try to offer theme partys, such as the turkish night (with traditional dancers), beach- or poolparty.
If you are on a budget and don't mind any of the above mentioned - this 2 star Hotel is great. The rooms are 25 Euro per night, breakfast is 5 Euro.
If you need more you should pay more and get a 4 or 5 star Hotel in Turkey.

It's raining, but at least the rain's warm! Before it started we walked around a bit and realised that the hotel isn't in Antalya at all, it's on the coast where the road turns inland to go over the mountains to Cappadocia, a place called Alara and in fact is over half way to Alanya, which is where we stayed when we first came to Turkey some 40 years ago. I think it's changed a ...
