Such hotels are a shame for Turkey!!!

Turtle’s Marco Polo Club HV-1 is Disgusting!!!! And, I can not imagine who can think differently…??? … However, I can imagine. There is a category of tourists, mostly female, who do not have time to notice not that the problems of service, and with surprise to learn that there was also the sea! We were just flying back with a pair of blondes who hadn’t had time to warm up in the sun. From service in the club spitting even the people who first got abroad!!! What to add to what has been said ?? What problems with the sunbeds we had only when I got up at 7am and occupied them, and the beach towels, after waiting once for an hour, we no longer changed. Scandal in relations with management is a familiar and, indeed, the most effective means of solving problems. Demanding an Orom, almost reached a fight, the bed for the child, after days of silent reminders, about the safe which broke in three days of stay, even did not break. However, every day regularly talked about this at the reception, what was regularly done some kind of entry in some magazines. The safe, of course, has not been repaired, since we had a hard suitcase with a combination lock. Theft is a real fact! Our room was rattled by two hard workers bringing the bed to the next room. Having universal cards for opening doors, it is easy to swipe the mobile phone from the next room. Non working air conditioners (we were lucky), accommodation not in those rooms that were paid for (instead of family – two singles), the lack of remote controls to the TV and the desire to provide them, disgusting cleaning, boorish attitude bartenders, Burda, issued for cognac, untidy in the evening glasses scattered throughout the territory (three glasses were seen under one tree exactly 4 days), the beach in cigarette butts, the lack of non-Smoking area in the restaurant and children’s menu, boring animation with a repertoire of 5 – year-old in the poorest performance and stunted kids club, not working hoods in the restaurant, in the absence of air-conditioned rooms here is far not full bouquet service problems. And more. From TEZ-Tour met us a Vladimir, who with a characteristic raspaltsovkoy and unnatural glint in his eyes, announced that tourists are placed in the “Rixos-Kemer”, go instead to the “Rixos-Labada” … Came almost to a fight, and all the others, including children who arrived at 22-00 and another hour sitting at the airport waiting for all the tourists were hostages of all this nonsense!!! And, returning to the club, do the last… don’t waste your money on this “holiday” don’t come to this club ever…!!!! And if, suddenly, when placing keep in mind that the 6th and 7th line of the hotel (rooms 6 and 7) is 500 meters from the sea, with a possible view of the dusty road. There’s a restaurant, bar, pool, and all the “entertainment” on the beach and about, ie, in fact it is a 2-star hotel is not the first line, which You sell for the club HV-1. We are a family love, loved Turkey, our baby grew up on the memories of trips and waiting for the next and.. he cried when mommy said so in this club we can’t be sure… He didn’t know how much effort it took mom and dad to do for him and this vacation as fun and interesting….
