Ok for the money, but don’t ask for a taxi
Reviewed 27 September, 2020
The staff was helpful and working fast.
The bathroom combined with toilet was very very small, less than 2 square meters and there even were no curtain to separate shower from the toilet or sink.
The biggest disappointment was on check-out. I asked manager to call a taxi and it came very fast, but they don’t accept cards, don’t have taximeters and ride should be paid with lire as i was said (actually dollars or euro are good too). I advice to bargain the price, cause I was asked to pay 3 times more than it costs. And i’m sure that hotel staff is fully aware of this - so it’s a sign of a bad management.

Let me just start by saying if I could give this hotel 0 stars I would...
The hotel itself isn’t too bad, you couldn’t swing a cat in the rooms and the toilet constantly smelt like wee but you get what you pay for I suppose.
It’s the staff you want to watch out for. So I came to Antalya for dental work, this meaning I had to take a lot of GBP notes with me over. We got there on the Monday, I counted all my money before tucking it away hidden in my case in the hotel room (they didn’t let us know there was safes). I check my money again the following day and £400 pound was missing! So I confront the man at reception to which he suddenly didn’t know how to speak English even though I had a full on conversation with him when we arrived ??? Strange. Anyway I said if my money isn’t back by the time we leave I’ll call the police. To which a different man at the hotel said ‘call the police but they will side with us’. Brilliant.
Other than this incident that ruined my holiday right from the start, let me tell you about the food.
45 lira for lunch (breakfast and dinner was included - lunch and alcohol was not). So this ‘lunch’ on offer I wouldn’t even feed to the many stray cats lurking over me as I ate. Disgusting and tasteless - I may aswell have been eating cardboard.
I decided to have a glass of wine one night, which is 25 lira - that was fine. The next day I have another glass of wine - apparently this now costs 50 lira? They make you sign for the lunch and wine which you pay for at the end. They tried to say I never paid for my wine prior even tho I signed for it. After I refused to sign stating this, suddenly I can pay 25 lira again? Liars.
On a positive note, there’s a hotel right opposite called Lara world, they are soooo friendly and nice and the food there is 100% better (actually edible) we paid 30 lira for a decent meal instead of 45 for cat food. They have entertainment of an evening, a large buffet at meal times aswell as a separate menu, a spa and staff are lovely. I wish we stayed there, we spent most of our time there anyway after the thieves robbed me.
To conclude : if you want to have money stolen from you and be starving for a week then deffo visit this awfull exscuse of a hotel - I wouldn’t come back here if you paid me.

Helpfull and friendly staff. Highly recommended. Due to a early flight for London Gatwick the manager was so accommodating and packed us some breakfast and even took us to the airport. Would pick this hotel over our the large one we previously stayed at.
Nice local hotel

This is a kind of boutique hotel without no clear profile, but nice clean and well serviced.
Nice medium small rooms with good beds and very ok balconies ( but with low quality furniture) .
Nice breakfast and dinner, tea and coffee available, for free, 24/7 and the tea was a good quality.
Small bathrooms, but very clean and in good shape. Towels ok/good standard.
TV channels... Turkish and one russian.
Very nice and not disturbing staff.
Pool area small (big enough) was clean and well equipped
The hotell have an agreement with "Happy Beach" just 5 minutes walk from the hotel, just ask for a ticket in the reception..The beach is nice located and in general in good shape.But but...the "Happy Beach" concept looks like a closed Gypsy Camp, it doesn't fit to the medium sofisticated concept on Esperanza .
Ps! This part of Antalya.....are not the best for children.The Lara area,..( NOT ESKI LARA) is tired and have lot of influence from the darker side of the society, it's a shame but a fact.
Good value for money

We booked this hotel for just one night with a full board service and it was very good value for money. The hotel located about 400 m. to the beach in a quiet area which you have to walk a bit but it was good because it was a private beach. The staff were also nice and helpful.
