"Just stayed here for 2 weeks what can I say, apart from awfull. The hotel is nothing like it..."

Just stayed here for 2 weeks what can I say, apart from awfull. The hotel is nothing like its advert, there is no entertainment, no fitness suite, no sauna etc.

The bar area is very dated and stuffy, and as for the drinks well forget it, they are that watered down they are undrinkable. The pool is dirty and desperate for a good clean, if you have young children there is a tiny baby pool but the staff just sit there and moan about kids splashing.

The food is the same every day and you have to fight the greedy Russians who rush for the food like they have never been fed before. Ah now let's start with the Russians 1st of all this hotel is full of young single Russian ladies, you have to ask yourself why ? I know what I think is going on there.

During the day they are worse than the Germans for the sunbeds. The rooms are basic and you have to ask for them cleaning, the staff seem to dump all the English in the roof rooms which are awfull and everyone complains.

There is also a poor little monkey called Charlie who is dumped in a cage at the side of the pool the staff do nothing to look after it. It is fed on scraps and given Orange squash to drink.

Hope this helped. Ps icmeler is a fantastic resort, just don't go to this hotel

Just spent two weeks in this hotel. BRITISH DO NOT GO THERE! Its Russian owned, full of Russians and they hate the brits. Staff rude and unfriendly (unless you're Russian).

Food poor (unless you're Russian). Ate out most days, spent a small fortune! Roof rooms are appalling, everyone refused to stay in them, pigeon coops!

All drinks in bar are watered down, the beer is undrinkable. They run out of everything for days, soft drinks, beer, spirits, even TEA! Everyone drinks in the local bars (yet more expense!).

Hotel is scruffy and run down, pool area a mess, insuffient sunbeds. No gym, no inside bar, no entertainment, nothing for kids to do. Bad reputation throught Icmeler.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED - I AM NOT KIDDING!

Stayed 2 weeks, worst 2 weeks ever. Our room was right under the pub so every night it was constant loud music and shouting dj from 8pm till 12am, it was a complete nightmare.

The food was terrible, example, breakfast was boiled eggs, cheese and salad i think you can imagine the rest.

The drink, well that was 90% water, as for sauna, laundry room, pool table, internet, night entertainment, kids rep, well theirs nothing like that.

THIS HOTEL IS OK FOR SINGLTONS NOT FAMILIES.

Please please please dont do it. give this so called hotel a wide birth.

Icmeler itself is a lovely place and clean but when it comes to the altin orfe the nightmare begins. as a previous review states the accommodation is shocking the food isnt fit to give the pigs if i had any. you want any alcohol forget it unless u like watered down beer vodka wine raki etc...if your female single will give you real drink.

There is nothing for children unless u go to the beach,or stay round the hotel bar where loaded handguns are left on the chairs for them to pick up.

No entertainment, no sauna no sky tv no nothing which is stated in thomas cook brochure. our room toilet wasnt attached to the floor, sink was hanging of the wall minus plug. no hot water and forget about getting clean towels and bedding.

"This is the worst holiday we have ever been on. The only good thing about it was the air co..."

This is the worst holiday we have ever been on. The only good thing about it was the air conditioning in the room. The place needs to be completely refurnished. Cleanliness there is a joke. We never had our sheets changed during our holiday.

The only time we got our towels changed was when we left them soaking on the bathroom floor and even then we had to go to reception to ask for clean ones!

The food also is a joke. It is geared more for Russians, Polish, etc. Every meal was the same - salad, more salad and even more salad - even at breakfast. There was no meat at all at breakfast. Three mornings running there was not even any cornflakes!!

No toast either only chunks of bread. They do not have a kitchen and it appears the food we got at lunch and dinner was what was left over from hotel next door and brought over.

There are no facilities for children at all. When you went to the bar at night they kept trying to get you to buy imported drinks so you would have to pay but if you did not they gave you the local drinkin very small glasses and even then you couldn't even taste the vodka.

Everyone in the hotel thought it was watered down. They kept running out of beer, cola and ice. Bar tender was extremely rude (unless you were Russian). We never saw them cleaning round the pool or bar area the whole time we were there and the areas were filthy. My husband went into the gents toilet at the pool one day and they were washing a monkey in the sink.

Every british person we spoke to was appalled by this hotel and couldn't believe it could be so bad. Although we were supposed to be all inclusive - that was a joke - we went out most night as food and drink were so awful.

We would warn other british to give it a wide berth - it may seem like a cheap deal but believe me you end up paying double as you have to go out most days for all meals.

I think it should be renamed Hotel Altin Awful!!!

"There are no indoor activities at all at this hotel as in no games room, no sauna, no table ..."

There are no indoor activities at all at this hotel as in no games room, no sauna, no table tennis etc. There is only 1 bar which is outside so if it rains there is nowhere to sit, biggest part of the restraunt is outside.

There is no entertainment programme whatsoever day or night.
The food is absoultely inedible unless you like salad!! This is the only all inclusive hotel i have ever stayed in that dishes your food out to you on a plate. Thers is no choice whatsoever.

You get 1 thing for lunch and 1 thing for dinner most of the time not knowing what you are being given! Breakfast is boiled eggs, salad and cornflakes everyday.

We were not expecting english food and have never had a problem in all the countries we've been to.

Well to start with dont be fooled by the photo of the hotel it was taken on top of roof from the hotel opposit and made to look a very big complex,its not.

I went all inclusive what a sham they have no kitchens there so all food comes from hotel next door (pigs swill)it was awfull you get brekie you expect eggs a fetta cheese but the corn flakes were stale the only thing that was fresh was the bread.

Lunch and evening meals was salad, salad, salad, with what ever was left from next door, one night ther was what looks like a load of slop with chips mixed in it looked like somthing that somebody had thrown up the night befor.

Ther are loads of russians at this hotel and they loved the food wich goes to show what they must eat back home. One night we had a b.q wich we were amazed at but managment had thers first befor we had ours. But a lot of that was under cooked.

As for the hotel if it rains ther is nowear you can sit it is all open and if it rains durin the night all the seats are wet so you have to sit on the metal frames of the chairs. Dont go there!!!!!!!!!!.

Decided to go for a one week holiday with my mum in early october after spending my summer before in icmeler. and i just love it.

so we booked with I***********.com to stay in Altin orfe in central icmeler. but the secound we stepped into the hotel i realized this will not be a great hol. They were overbooked (they said but dont think so) so we got to go over the street to Hotel cartier to spend our first night there.

Really annoying as it was in the middle of the night (about 3). They told us to come back the morning after so we did and they had our room ready.

And we knew it was just basic but still we had some expectaions... who dosnt on their hol??? it was very basic and clean so it was alright. Altho the balconys were very very VERY small so it was hard for both of us to be able to sit and relax at the same time. and there was only one chair aswell which was kinda wierd for a doubleroom.....??

The pool area was alright altho packed with rude russians but still clean and ok. Also there was alot of space so we could sit and relax which was good.

We had kinda high expectations on the food as we stayed in another All inclusive hotel in icmeler 08 (oylum prestige, 5 star!!!) but the food was very bad and we had to be there before the start of it to get any food as the russians is very good eaters.. so it was kinda stressful really!

The staff should be a bit more friendly if they want their hotel to be more succsefull. But maybe they dont

I would not recommend to stay in Altin orfe. If you wanna stay all inclusive in icmeler stay in Oylum prestige (great food, friendly staff, close to shops & the beach!!)

We stayed in the Altin Orfe in aug 08, we are used to staying in basic rooms, at the end of the day you only sleep there, however the rooms here did need a lot of updating, room was clean but bathroom was mouldy and the shower leaked that much we had to keep towels on the floor to soak up the water.

Staff were very friendly and couldnt do enough for you, they did treat the manager like royalty. I wouldnt advise anybody to stay here as it is a russian hotel, i found them to be very rude and ignorant and they treated the staff discusting.

We made the best of a bad situation but definatly will not be going back

"This hotel has the potential to provide a fantastic overall experience. However given it..."

This hotel has the potential to provide a fantastic overall experience. However given it's current status it doesn't. What all hotel reviews don't tell you about this hotel is that the majority of it's rooms are designated to russian tourism.

The rooms are extremely basic but this is to be expected as the price for a 2 week all inclusive could be paid for a 2 week b&b. There is plenty of food which is based on Turkish cuisine plus chips - again this is not something that I could complain about because it is to be expected. There is no additional entertainment provided. Except British Joe's which you can be forgiven in thinking it is part of your hotel until you get the bill! It is seperate from the hotel even though it is attached and all it's patrons use the hotel's external toilets.

What I found to be the most disappointing about this hotel is the management. They seemed to forget that the customer was their biggest priority and have staff leave what they were doing just to ensure management were 'comfortable'. I will not be re-visiting this hotel anytime soon. I went into this hotel with an open mind as there were no reviews on this hotel. If you do stay here you need to go in with an open mind and remind yourself that you are only there to sleep

Ic,meler is a lovely resort and has very little traffic.As disabled people we found it very easy to get around as it is very flat. The shopping facilities are excellent and the people very friendly. There are some fantastic restaurants with a wide selection and exceptionally reasonable prices. To name just a couple the EPESUS offers a very good English breakfast at an amazingly low price and the selection for other meals is very good. They also do a very good english sunday roast. The other I would like to mention is the Villa that has a rather good choice of menu too. Both the restaurants have good staff who are very friendly.
