Sunshine Holiday Resort
Ranked #7 of 19 Hotels in Ovacik
Reviewed 11 September 2017

This hotel will suit holiday makers who like to laze about in hot sunshine. We don't so it was not our cup of tea. There are no walks around the hotel which is cut into the hillside with lots of steps over various levels in a barren location.
It is approximately 1000m downhill to Ovacik and a continuation brings you to Hisanoru which is a more lively location with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. A taxi back is 15 To. Buses to either Oludeniz or Fethiyecost 7.5 To

Concerning the Hotel, the first room we were allocated was a delux magic room, very large but the balcony was a 5 foot square box like a prison cell. Mrs P could barely look over the front and if you sat down you could see nothing.
We refused this and was moved one floor down which had a large wrap around balcony, this room are far too large and could accept 4 beds but other is very little storage space.
One wardrobe with two drawers and a safe and two very small drawers either side of the bed. So we placed certain items on chairs.

The bathroom had a toilet pan so high if you sat down your legs were swinging. There was a Jacuzzi bath but this continually leaked which was never cured. Room 7302.

This was located in the main hotel block above the restaurant, but the lift to these floors and above was permanently broken. We consider these rooms are not worth paying extra. More worthwhile rooms are the standard rooms overlooking the bottom pool and bar area.

The food was well below a 4 star standard with every thing very cheap and bitty, the food is aimed at children and Turkish clients with lots of cheap salad and meat balls. Roast near means flat meat balls roasted, roast chicken was oblong flat chicken burgers.
Omelettes were available for breakfast. We had fish one evening which they said was mackerel, the next night the same fish was called trout. We did not enjoy one meal in our ten days.

The drinks are passable but the brandy is local paint stopped, gin and tonic OK.

There are 4 pools, one very small adults pool at the front of the hotel two swim up pools and a bottom level popular pool but not the cleanest, and dangerously slippy with all the spillage around the walk areas. This is also the early and late evening drinks area.

There is an entertainment area called an amphitheatre, but this is just a rectangular stepped area not a try amphitheatre.

We would not return.

Room Tip: Overlooking the bottom pool.

Just returned from a 10 day all inclusive. Myself and 2 friends shared a family apartment and I was super happy with it. There are 2 rooms, 1 has 3 single beds and the other a double, it also has 2 shower rooms which was fantastic. Our small balcony faced the lovely pool and bar.

Parts of the hotel are a little tired and could do with some TLC but on the whole it is a clean and tidy place.

All staff are very friendly and more than happy to help especially the entertainment team and bar staff.

The food was ok but very repetitive. We dined out a few days to have a change from the norm.

Definitely not disabled friendly as the are lots of steps and steep slopes. The town is a good 25 minute walk, mostly downhill.

All in all it was a decent priced relaxing holiday and I am certainly considering returning next year with my family.

Our second visit and once again just as good. Tahoe,Emyre,Apoo and Cargo are excellent ambassadors for the hotel.Theviews are stunning. The guests we met were great so thanks to Paul,Bernie and their children and Matt,Lisa and their children. Hisaranu is a short distance and is a fantastic place. Thankyou again the people of Turkey. Only bug bear was the food which seemed to cater for the coach parties that arrived on route to various other destinations.

It's time again for my annual review of the Sunshine Holiday Resort and as the title suggest it's the best yet! We have now stayed there for 6 years in a row and have watched the hotel grow from a tiny place to the impressive complex it now is! The owner Ishan and his developing team have succeeded in expanding the place, at times not without problems, but I'm happy to say this year they have nailed it! The whole place oozes efficiency, staff are attentive and helpful in all areas. The pool area is constantly being cleaned, glasses etc removed. In the restaurant, tureens are instantly replaced once empty, coffee and juice machines are instantly refilled, tables are cleared constantly. No matter what time you choose to eat there is always plenty to eat. This is in spite of the fact that the hotel has to bring in Turkish tourists for extra revenue since there are far less Brits in Ovacik this year. I can't imagine any other hotel in the area which can feed so many people and still provide a pleasant laid back dining experience. All areas in the hotel are clean and well maintained and it is superb value for money. You only have to read my previous reviews to see what an idyllic location the hotel is in. In spite of the expansion of the hotel, it has still maintained its tranquility and is never in your face. There is a busy entertainment team in there, but the guys are never in your face and will leave you a if that's what you want. We have stayed in various parts of Turkey and in several places in Ovacik /Hisaronu, but the Sunshine still remains my little bit of paradise and probably always will. Book it now and preferably book it direct. Why give a tour operator a cut of the profits that should go to the hotel, times are tough enough in Turkey as it is. Well done Ishan and team and thanks!

We spent 2 weeks here in July with family and friends (10 of us). The food was great, plenty of it and varied every day. We never had an issue getting 10 sunbeds all together which is not always the case in other hotels we've stayed in. The best thing about this hotel was the staff. They were all amazing and so friendly, chatty and helpful. The entertainment team of Emre and Apoo made the holiday for us! My 13 and 16 year old children loved them and joined in all of the daily activities on offer including darts, killer pool and water polo. They knew all the kids names and really made an effort with everyone. Really can't say enough about how fab they were.
The bar staff do an amazing job and work so hard too. Hisaronu is great for shopping or having a meal out for a change of scenery. We went on a boat trip which was well worth the money we paid and included a fab lunch. Love Turkey and loved this hotel.
