Since we had a wedding anniversary, the room was decorated with flowers and petals. He seemed a little small to us, we didn't even return to the reception, the guy who escorted us called the reception, talked for a minute and took us to a larger triple room. The area is a small two-story bungalows (I do not like large multi-storey hotels, where a hundred meters of corridors and a lot of cleaners with their carts and people are constantly coming and going). Very well-groomed greenery, grass, ivy. The area is very clean, constantly watered grass and paths.
One evening there was a wind and at night it caused a lot of dry leaves, then in the morning everything was removed.
The beach is wide, sandy. Clean. Sunset by the sea small pebbles. We walked along the beach on both sides of the hotel, ours seems to be the most comfortable. Without boulders and debris, many sunbeds.
The staff who work at the hotel are very friendly, all the positives are all trying. For the whole hour I did not see any conflict situation, so that one of the guests was not satisfied. All questions or requests were resolved very quickly. We went on a tour, I asked the restaurant manager if I could take something with me, he called the guy, he brought paper bags, and said take what you want and how much you want. The guys and girls who worked on the distribution are all friendly and impose as much as they want, some help others if there is a small influx of people. Everyone knows "good appetite" and they are happy when you thank them.
The girl Simge, who distributes cakes, is very friendly and positive, she already knew in two days what desserts we like and what to give us.
And Abidjan is also very friendly at the snack bar. Even when the cleaners clean the dishes and you say "thank you", they thank you too. We had a departure at 14.55 and the girl manager without any problems allowed to continue the room at no extra charge and said that you can take fruit and sweets on the road. A lifeguard on Okesh Beach swam with me to the depths for safety, because I was afraid.
There by the pool there are pillars with signs of different cities of the world, I asked to make and nail Mukachevo, the main animator promised to do. 2 days before departure. When I was asked to leave the hotel if there was anything I didn't like, I said I promised and didn't do it. The girl administrator called somewhere and told me to go to the pool, I approached and they came with a ready, painted and dried sign.
I thought they wouldn't, and they did just didn't see me to nail together. I apologize to them, they are well done.
Large selection of food, several types of meat, fish every day. In the morning and porridge and omelets to choose from, salads of more than 10 species, figs, olives, dried apricots, lots of cheese, yogurt with various fruits, jams of 5 types. Of fruits grapes, apples, plums, oranges, tangerines. Baklava 5-7 species, different pies. Bread rolls, wonderful breads. Sea bass at the a la carte restaurant was the best I've ever eaten. The food is very good. I overeat there. Medium quality wine, beer. There is plenty of bottled water everywhere.
Internet is free to catch almost anywhere in the territory, the speed is sufficient for a movie online.
I want to thank everyone who makes our holiday enjoyable.
Now, in fact, the hotel is not up to 5 *, a really good 4!
Check-in: arrived at 7 and went for breakfast, settled at 11.
Territory: well, it’s very small, you can’t take a walk on such boring evenings here... if you are used to seeing hotels with a large territory where you are transported on golf carts, you definitely shouldn’t go here, everything is compact, almost like in your country house sometimes crowded. If you come to a restaurant before opening, it will most likely be difficult to find a place.
Rooms: Bungalows overgrown with grapes and renovation and painting were carried out directly on this grape, the usual is nothing special, I was especially surprised in the room by the door in the toilet of a hundred years ago, who was the one to understand, cleaning like everywhere everything is clean only where available, the concept of dirt under the bed and it must be pushed aside, no, we don't know that.
Food: the choice is simply very meager and lovers of hotels where tables are falling from a pile of food are definitely not here, by the third day everything tastes the same and tasteless! This is not the kind of food that is usually in normal hotels for your money. Such an impression as a canteen, breakfast porridge, cheese, sausage, everything would be fine, but sorry, not in a hotel for such a price. We tried to knock down $ 2 for breakfast for a free fresh juice, but after connecting the senior in the restaurant, everything was quickly settled.
Beach: Straw-type umbrellas cover absolutely nothing, sunbeds, as always, are occupied with towels of people who came for 10 minutes a day and left their towels here until the end of the holiday. The pier should be updated, as the boards are already tired. By the way, this year, at a depth up to the chest, they noticed that some small fish were biting their legs and it hurt quite a lot, which had not been noticed before in Turkey.
Animation Entertainment: there is only a children's and thanks to the animator Azis for children's entertainment, there is simply no adult! In the evenings, as usual, at 21.00, instead of various acrobats and fire shows, some ridiculous competitions like in a children's camp like stretching a spoon under clothes, etc. , or karaoke at a bar, or disco in the style of hits 98, i. e. normal adults no spectacular shows! Yes, and the amphitheater there, well, this is not particularly clear... all the animation is only by the hotel staff and no more. That is, be prepared that after dinner, when it is already dark, it will be boring.
Staff: From conversations at the bar with those who understand the language at least a little, they realized that there was a shortage of staff, and this was evident when the animator was serving food in the restaurant. As expected in a 5 * hotel, almost no one here knows Russian or English, only at the reception, in a restaurant, etc. , you will explain on your fingers. Somehow it took half an hour before the opening of the bar to ask the waiter for a glass of plain hot water, for which there was a response like we are not working yet, come back later. After reading reviews here about the theft of aikos, chargers, etc. (look below), everything that was a pity was stuffed into a safe.
In general, summing up, we can say an overprice hotel for your money, the case when you try to stand in the line with the leaders, but before them how... If there is a choice from other hotels, then it is better to leave this hotel in their favor as a reserve or if already they were there and everything was fine. . .
Very pleasant and attentive staff, they do everything for the maximum convenience of visitors. If there are free places, you must be settled earlier, we arrived at about 7 in the morning and already by 8 we got a room. The room itself is large, clean, with a good repair, there were no questions about cleaning - everything is fine.
I really liked the territory - not big and practical, there are always free sunbeds on the beach (but they take a lot of towels, but they themselves are absent).
In terms of nutrition, everything is very tasty, different types of meat - chicken, turkey, lamb, beef, delicious pastries and various national dishes. On the downside is not a large selection of seafood (one type of fish). But on Wednesdays there is a fish day, there is also a fish a la carte.
Evening animation was also a minus for us, unfortunately we can say that it is practically non-existent, but we compensated for it with evening walks around the city. During the day the animation is good.
- on the first day of stay, the charger with the cord from ICOS and the cord from IPhon disappeared from the room (after the showdown, the cost was returned by order of the owner);
- departure from the hotel was at 19.15, they were evicted from the room at 12.00, and they offered to pay 150 euros for the extension (at such prices for the tour, one could not waste time on trifles);
- not enough space (loungers) by the pool.
The first thing that positively surprised us was the arrival at the hotel itself. We arrived at the hotel at six o'clock in the morning, went into the lobby, did some paperwork. After that, I asked that there was no first floor and we were immediately settled. Literally 15 minutes passed from the moment of arrival and entry into the room - this is the level!
Further, everything was at a high level: the food is delicious, the territory is very clean, and the animation is unobtrusive, but very professional!! ! The hotel staff is very pleasant, almost everyone speaks Russian.
We were very pleased with our stay in this hotel, despite the fact that this is not the first time in Turkey!
Club Boran Mare Beach 5 - a hotel you want to return to!
The animation is just great. From 10 am the club dance begins, then all sorts of games (bocha, water polo, jengo, archery). Animation pays attention to everyone. Also, a kids club is open in the morning, children also play all day (except for lunch) in different games and every evening there is a mini disco. For adults every evening a show, then a disco. Respect to all animation.
The territory is well-groomed, Wi-Fi throughout, 3 bars, a snack bar, table tennis and football, a large swimming pool, a jacuzzi and a pool with slides on schedule. Also, you can take ice cream all day long and there is a corner of cakes. Plenty of space on the beach, comfortable sunbeds. There is a pontoon on the water and also in the water to which you need to swim a little (you can jump water there). The rooms are new, they clean every day, change towels, deliver water, change the bed once a week. Towels are given out near the locker rooms, you can also not take cards in the evening, but immediately change dirty towels for clean ones in the morning. I want to come back here again, very cool hotel and cool animation.
The beach is clean and wide, the entrance is pebble, but there is a place where you can freely enter with children. The water is clean and warm 25 degrees. There are enough beds for everyone. We all really enjoyed it! The service at the hotel is really top notch. The only negative is check-out at 12.00, and we had a transfer at 17.00 and we were not able to extend the room as the hotel was very busy (this, of course, made us very tired). But no one removes the bracelets for you, you can safely use everything except the number. And so we had 8 days of wonderful vacation! )))
I really liked the group of animators. Children during the day are interested in games, in the evening children's performances in the theater. Adults also do not go unnoticed, they approach almost everyone and invite them to volleyball, throwing shells into the sand, archery, karaoke. Unfortunately, there was no evening disco, for my period they were not allowed yet, but the music in the cafe did not play loudly. The staff brought blankets to the table, it was very nice. The hotel is clean. Rooms are cleaned every day, fridge water regularly. And on the territory of the hotel is a museum of cars, not a big one and Russian history. Musical instruments, irons, flags, books, prehistoric televisions, etc. Interestingly, many read old newspapers with worn sheets. Well, the hotel is relatively quiet, where you can not hear the noise. I recommend.
