I have had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful hotel for a week now. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. Every staff member has been friendly and helpful. The breakfast is amazing! I could spend hours in the breakfast area due to both the food and amazing staff, especially Erdogan. Top notch.
