NOT 5 star
I only stayed there for 2 days but it was THE WORSE 2 days. The hotel looked good, but the small of swear was strong once you opened the hotel door. Then there was a smell of funky feet. They needed to clean the carpet. The first night the electric went out for several hours( more than 6), then it took several more for the internet to come back on. The TV service went out several times for several hours. No Internet, No TV left me with time for the pool. The area was nice. THAT was the best thing at the hotel. It was hot in the room and the settings for the air was 27. Since when is 27 a good temperature for a room in the summer. I tried to change it and even asked someone to help but I got brushed off with a rude remark. I was sweating both nights. The breakfast was good and the room service food was tasty as well, The thing is both phones in the room didn't work so I had to go down, order the food and THEN they would deliver :( NOT a 5-star hotel.

First & last time in this circus of a Hotel
Steer clear. Description states they have a Free Shuttle Service, which they don’t. They then said if I took a taxi they would reimburse me, which they then reneged on. Air conditioning on the blink, so was faced with a choice, not sleep due to the heat or the noise from the planes flying over all night when I opened the window. Again, wouldn’t see me right with a discount for current or future stays. They really don’t care. If you speak Turkish or Arabic you’ll probably be ok but their English leave an awful lot to be desired. One thing I particularly disliked was asking me if I’d taken anything from the mini bar, when I informed them what I’d taken, they sent someone up to check if I was telling the truth!! So why ask ??

Does the job.
Perfectly fine for an overnight stay (which is what I was there for). There is no longer shuttle to the airport, however, I was kindly offered a taxi for free (I assume until they remove the shuttle information from various website postings). I had a strange encounter with reception which left a sour taste in my mouth - I understand that no is particularly chirpy at 4 am in the morning, but I was a little taken aback by the raised, annoyed tone I received from the gentleman who checked me in, simply because it took a few tries for me to understand his accent. He was much nicer afterwards, but I couldn't shake the interaction. The room itself was fine - I can't say it screamed "five star" to me but it was large, comfortable, and clean.
