when we first arrived at pinar hotel, 1st august 2010, it was about 6:30am. we was greeted by 'Burak' tall guy, he was such a pleseant guy to us, made us feel welcome in this hotel. as we went up to our room, our room was ok, for a 2star hotel(even though on the internet it said 3 star hotel)i requested when booking this holiday, pool view, double bed, balcony & sea view, wel we only got a balcony. it stated on the internet that the beach is 170m way, it really wasnt. you couldnt see it from the hotel at all, i would say round about 300m away, more than that i know its not that far but its false addvertisement to customers. i went out onto the balcony, to look around and see that it was like a jungle outside, so many trees & a old fashioned hotels around, to look to my left hand side & see that the people staying next to us had a massive bong on the table, with tin foil, spoons and boxes of things, what was they getting up to?? .the noise of the crickets outside was just outrangious, even though you carnt help that, was very noisey, we got used to it..next morning we went downstairs to the breakfast, which wasnt very much of a choice to eat, ceral, bread which was soo small, juice, tea, coffee, tomotoes, olives, cucumber so on, was very shocking. in the back area of the hotel was a pool outside, which was very nice, we spent most of our time by the pool, sunbathing. the price in alanya is soo expensive, people had been telling me that turkey is dead cheap. the location of the hotel isnt very nice, due to all the smells in the area, it was horriable. stray cats & dogs walking around, wasnt very nice to look at. the hotel had a sign outside saying there was not allowed no food & drink in the hotel, i think this wasnt very good, we went to a supermarket called 'migros' around the corner & had to seek in our drinks because in the hotel it was very expensive. for a big bottle of coke, fanta, sprite was 1.69 Turkish lira, when in the hotel big bottle of pop was 6 lira, alot of a difference. i did enjoy the food in turkey was very nice, we reccommend 'big bens' on the corner, very nice staff there, but kind of expensive, we found another restarant local called 'why not' that was yummy, cheaper then big bens, live music played at 'why not'. we went to the beach once, wasnt pleasent at all, dead rats by some of the sun chairs, was dirty & some ruubish floating in sea. cleanliness of the hotel, you bed covers & sheets got cleaned every 3 days i think it was, our's had holes in, we though the cleaners could of done a better job, i had to leave a note on the mirror in hotel room, to ask the cleaner to clean our floor, our feet were turning black underneath due to us just walking around out hotel room, we also had ants everywere in our room. 'mavrick' hotel manager was very pleasent, always greeted with a smile, very friendly to me & my partner, the day time staff wasnt very friendly at all, very rude, served without a smile, & hygiene problems, we loved the night staff so much better. we did enjoy our holiday apart from al the problems, we made it our own, we went on a 'jeep safari' trip up in the mountions, was brilliant!! would recommend. for such a young couple & experienceing the bad things on this holiday in turkey, alanya, dont think will we ever come back to this part of turkey just yet. hotel was clean apart from the things i have stated, we did feel welcomed & enjoyed thank you Charlie, 18 and Tyler, 19. from Birmingham.

We stayed in August/September '07. (family of 8 - 4 rooms). The hotel was dirty, never dusted or vacuumed once. Five people cut their foot on glass by the pool during the fortnight we were there, all they did each mornng was a cursory sweep around the pool, ill fitting carpets in all of our 4 rooms, small one-inch step leading out of bathroom, hardly big enough to notice but certainly hurts the toe. External fire escape blocked and two fire extinguishers below pressure, told rep but extinguishers not attended to whilst we were there. Now the big one......25 PER WEEK! For air conditioning, so much for "a small charge" payable locally. Manager said despite rising electricity costs they haven't raised the price for 10 years, so God help those who were ripped off 10 years ago. Paid in sterling, but they wouldn't give receipt in sterling, only Turkish Lira (I needed receipt for official complaint I am going to make). Staff, mixed attitudes, but lady receptionist (forgot name) very good and pleasant, evening barman (Kennan) an absolute star. Don't bother with the evening barbeque.

We are just back from a 2 week stay at the Pinar Hotel. When we booked this hotel and read some reviews my partner and I thought, what have we let ourselves in for? The most off putting thing with this holiday was the transfer time from the airport to the hotel, 2 hours 20 minutes (with 10 minute stop) but it was worth it. Hotel was very clean, don't understand why it was rated a 2 star, towels were changed every 2nd day along with the beds and the maids were in cleaning every day. Although there wasn't much room around the pool area, we still found it adequate and didn't find ourselves setting our alarms to book beds, there always seemed to be some spare. Excellent restaurant down the road from the hotel called 'Big Bens' that cook traditional British food, although be aware that the Sunday roast requires to be booked in advance and I can highly recommend it, up the road there is a kebab shop which does excellent chicken wraps (can't miss it, has a massive England flag outside it). Staff at the hotel are very friendly and alway happy to help. The barman at night (Keanan) just made our holiday, there isn't any entertainment at the hotel, but he is entertainment himself and loves British people so he can practice his English (and he loves playing chess). The hotel is very close to the beach, about a 10 min walk, the only problem was the heat, the temperature was roughy 46 degrees by day and 32 degrees by night (lucky we paid for airconditioning which isn't dear, roughly 25 sterling).

What a charming place with wonderful amenities and a smashing pool. I've never been to Greece before and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a villa or some sort of quiet private place just to chill.
