Me and my husband were there in july 2011 in our honeymoon and we came back really disappointed.First the hotel is NOT A 4 STAR HOTEL ,barely a 2 star.When we bought our vacation,we were told that for honeymoon couples they have special treatements like a fruit basket ,a champaine,or a room with direct sea view,we didn't get any of this,not even the stupid swans made out of sheets.The food is horrible,food on the line was even spoiled,like the macaroni salad,which was expired,or the beans salad,and so on.There's a lot of salads made with mayonnaise,and they were bad,spoiled,the food selection was very poor,chicken all day long,and one day we had some kind of fish,no beef,pork///i know they are muslims and don't eat pork,but there's still other kinds of meat that we could've had////,no chance of sea food.As for fruits we had only watermelon,or honeydew.Just a few cakes put on the line just at the beginning of lunch and dinner,and after they were gone,there were no refills,i counted around 40 ecklers for the whole meal for a few houndreds of people,so we went every time at the beginning of every meal to get some of them,and if you wouln'd go from the beginning you would have to wait a while to get food,cause it wasn't ready,just for the first people.There were a lot of frozen meat like hamburger meat,frozen and deep fryed,something that looked like chicken nuggets,and other stuff,all frozen food,never fresh food. There are a lot of russian people there,even the entertainment was in russian all day long. The rooms are ok,but not for a 4 star hotel,more like a 2 star,even that's too much,the tourist guide told us that the turkish government added 2 stars to every hotel in Turkey to boost tourism,so a 4 star hotel is a 2 star in Europe ,and a 5 star is a 3 star hotel. Our room was cleaned twice in 7 days,the sheets were not changed,nor the towels,ever,even if there were people in the hotel that said that they had their towels changed a few times. The beach is not a clean one,it was full with cigarettes,napkins,empty bottles,sunflower seeds,and don't aspect soft sand,it is only made out af small rocks,even in the water there's bigger rocks and slippery,in our first day there was a guy that went out to swim,felt down on a rock in the sea,and hit his head and needed stiches.He went to the hospital,after a few calls it was ok,he had medical insurance included in the ticket and worked,so he didn't have to pay for it after he got home. At their website it says that turkish bath is free,but when you get there is with charge,there is no snack bar,on the beach there's no bar,and no fast-food like it says on their website,there're only 3 meals a day,between the hours specified on their website,and nothing else between,except juice,water,beer,coffee. There was a rude guy that supposed to clean the beach,and all he did he put the beach chairs down,in the evening,and every few days picked up the big garbage,and after 7 o'clock he doesn't let people on the beach,and we wanted to stay and take pictures at sunset,and he started to yell at us,cause we didn't wanna listen to him,what else can you do at the hotel,of course you're gonna stay in the evening on the beach,it's so relaxing......and i told him at the reception,he said he's gonna tell to his manager,cause the receptionist didn't let me speak to the manager,somebody else shown me which one the manager is and i wrote a page and a half of complaints,don't know if he cares,and i gave it to the manager and told him to read it if he cares about his customers opinion,if not,to throw it in the garbage. We are very upset about this experience,specially because it was our honeymoon,and because almost all of us are waiting for the summer,to go in just one vacation,and we want it to be special,and sometimes we have only regrets for going in a place or another,let's not forget about the money,which we work for very hard in this times,and somebody else doesn't care about you as a customer!!

Horrible experience

Out of 8 hotels we stayed in across Turkey, the Galaxy Beach was the worst hotel by a significant measure. It is NOT 4 stars at all. On the positive side first: the rooms were spacious and the air conditioning worked well. The staff were also quite friendly and the price included full board (all meals and alcohol drinks). On the negative side: 1) the photos on the website are overly flattering. The reality is that this hotel is quite dated and badly needs to be renovated. The airconditioning failed on one occasion. I had to help the technician fix it by holding his tools. He got electrocuted trying to fix the bad and old wiring into the room (he was fortunately okay). 2) do NOT swim in the pool. We saw guests constantly spit and throw cigarettes into the pool from their balconies above. Even the hotel staff told us not to swim there. They admitted to us that they had found waste in there! We did see the pool getting cleaned at the end of each day...but we were still not game 3) Entertainment was very very very loud. This consists of shows next to the pool with the amplifier turned right up. The entertainment goes from 8pm until 11pm EVERY night. Not good if you have a 5am plane the next day like we did 4) the hotel is located 10km to the east of Alanya so is not really central. There are regular buses but not sure how much these cost (we had a rental car) 5) the beach was not that great and quite crowded. To get to the beach you have to go through a tunnel underneath the main road at the front of the hotel 6) the food was very average. There was no traditional food – the mains are what i would describe as watered down goulash to cater for the mainly Russian crowd. We ate out most of the time 7) the hamam is absolutely filthy. The gym consists of one small barbell and two small dumbells in a dirty corner next to the hamams 8) We had real problems with some of the other guests there. The hotel is mainly used by Russians. We were told to get out of the hotel by a number of different guests as the hotel was only for Russians (we are Australian). We were on the receiving end of many derogatory comments and we were constantly glared at. It did not make us feel welcome. The hotel staff were apologetic and said that they are also treated rudely by the guests. These things were all unsolicited – our party was mainly 50yr old plus and not the type to go looking for trouble. Basically things were so bad that I called the travel agent and insisted that he rebook our accommodation. He was unable to find an alternative so we toughed it out for 3 days. However, we did go into town and actually visited a number of other 4 star hotels for a comparison. The difference was incredible – i.e. the hotels in town were of a much better quality and ambience. I would not describe the Galaxy Beach hotel as 4 star standard after my other stays across Turkey in similarly priced hotels. My recommendation for anyone else travelling to Alanya is to stay in a hotel in the city where you can check out the castle and other tourist attractions. It is also a good base to go exploring other interesting historical sights like Anamur, Syedra, Aspendos etc with a hire car.

Tourist Information

Weather

Alanya prides itself as a sunny hotspot overlooking the Med, and it's astonishingly hot during the summer, reaching highs of 32° Celsius by August. Given Alanya's location, it's more temperate than unbearably warm, and there's some rain in the winter months, so a light cagoule might be in order then.

Even in the depths of winter though, the rainfall is broken by long sunny periods and the thermometer stays between 10° Celcius and 20° Celsius.

Jabs

As UK, Courses or boosters usually advised: hepatitis A; typhoid; diphtheria; tetanus. Vaccines sometimes advised: tuberculosis; hepatitis B; rabies.

Electricity

Turkey operates on 220 volts, 50 Hz, with round-prong European-style plugs that fit into recessed wall sockets /points.
