Very spacious rooms
"The apartments were very spacious best iv ever been to in altinkum. The rooms were clean and modern looking ...bathrooms could do with getting rid of the baths and replacing woth showers but apart from that we enjoyed our stay! It was ideal as it's close to the beach ..less than 5 mins and it's lovely and quiet! It's a lovely walk to dolphin square. Been twice here and going again in july this year:)"

Disgusting place to stay
"We booked and paid for a two bedroom app, only to be told on arrival that because they were busy, there was no app available and we were put into a small one bedroom app that was not only tiny, but dirty and had holes in the bathroom door, a bathroom that was dirty with holes in the door, bed linen that had holes in and one of our kids had to sleep on the floor that night due to his bed being broken. Next morning we were informed that there still was no two bedroom app available, but would let us keep the dirty app from the night before and give us another one bedroom app for the kids. After much arguing with staff and a stressful start to our hol, they them moved us all to another one bedroom app which was slightly bigger, but just as dirty and was 64 steps up on the top floor with no lift. The pool are was also dirty and bar stools that looked like they hadnt seen a cloth or water since the year before. My advice to anyone who has booked this dump is to think twice. Two other families also had the same prob as ourselves when they arrived and our Thomas Cook rep was about as useful as a chocolate teapot! These apartments dont just need to be cleaned, they need to be pulled down."

Basic ...But very Good
"This was our third time in Altinkum, was worried about staying at the Tuntas apart after reading the reviews. When we arrived our room was not ready, we was put up in 1 bedroom apart, glad we booked the 2 bedroomed was moved next day.apartments were cleaned every other day with a towel & linnen change. Staff very friendly and helpful. The pool area was a little small and found it shaded over during the day.I would recomend the Tuntas apartments, "you get what you pay for," we did enjoy our stay there and had a great holiday.

"Stayed for 1 week here - absolutely awful. Standard of apartment wasn't even basic it was far worse. Nothing to cook on apart from a rusty oven/grill - Toilet disgusting yuck - the good side was the bedding and towels were clean & the room was cleaned once during our stay. As for Altinkum it was ok but the hassle you get from restaurants was pretty bad. Weather was amazing.People very friendly"

We loved it!
"After reading all the reviews I was rather anxious about going but I have to agree with a few of the reviews it's lovely. It's not the Ritz or anything but for what we paid it was a very enjoyable holiday. We stayed for 14 nights the maids came in and cleaned everyday - during May - and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Admittedly the rooms could have been cleaner but the bedding was clean enough just the dust was a bit of a nightmare but the mop and broom were to hand so we just cleaned up after ourselves - simples. We had a 2 bedroomed apartment and would you believe I miss all the stairs?! It's far enough away from Main beach to not have to be involved everyday but close enough to walk to! it's about 10 minutes to the main strip. Ideal! We didn't cook in our apartment except toast and maybe some rolls at lunchtime but we loved it. The cooker had 2 electric rings on it with a little oven so you could easily heat things up if you wanted to. The space in the rooms was good although take clothes hangers we couldn't find any but when we asked they were soon available. Even when we asked for blankets! We had 2 sofas which was handy. There wasn't a TV and we didn't need the air con but it was offered. The safe was a requirement and cost Â£2 a day. There was a hairdryer in the bathroom but we had an extra one with us. The bathroom had all we needed - its a shower over a half bath so you can sit in it if you want - nice enough but freezing in the morning. There's a mini market just a few minutes walk from the apartments - stocks most things and open til 3am bonus. Cafe Sabri was really lovely for a breakfast if you fancied one. Spent a lot of time in Lineker's bar - karaoke and party bar staff were brilliant, food fab and the Turkish night was really worth attending - serious check it out."

"I was totally dreading going to this place after reading the reviews but it turned out to be a fantastic. The rooms were big enough and it was not a problem paying for air-con as it did make a difference (was very hot). It was a 3* hotel but it was exactly what we wanted and you do get what you paid for. We never used the pool but it was always clean as were the hotel rooms. We were self catering and jaja's which was mentioned in a previous review was great the breakfasts were lovely and it was reasonable priced. I donât think I would go in low season as there would not be many places open. Altinkum was great especially dolphin square. I was definitely recommending these apartments to friends and family. "

Best holiday ever!
"I can't believe seeing the bad reviews about this place. Yes you do have to pay extra for air con which worked out to be Â£10 for the week. Hardly bank breaking. After reading the bad reviews I was dreading going. I have never been to such a clean apartment. I went with 5 other girls and the apartment size was great. It was very big everything was in good condition I was very impressed. The staff were very very friendly and spoke very good english and was always very helpful. The pool especially was very clean and the pool and floor around it is washed every single night. They even held a turkish night where they put on a BBQ and some turkish bits which was brilliant. They had entertainment; turkish dancers, belly dancers and games followed by a pool party ... all for 22 lira (about Â£10). It was amazing. We went self catering and we found a lovely resteraunt called Ja Ja's. The service is brilliant and food is superb! The beach is about 100m away and a little corner shop about 50m away. We are going back there next year. It really should be a 3* without a doubt and trust me, I am so fussy when it comes to being clean!! The only criticism of the whole holiday was Thomas Cook, would not go with them ever again. However, I do suggest doing the lazy day cruise. It was one of the best days on the holiday! Absolutely amazing!"

excellent for families
"After reading the reviews, I was not looking forward to taking my elderly (91 & 84yr old) parents and my 2 young boys (5 & 6) to The apartments...... THANKFULLY the bad reviews were a load of rubbish! My parents are used to going in 5 star hotels, We are re-booking for this October! So I think that says it all. The rooms were clean, the staff were polite and very helpful, The location was fantastic and the Stray dogs the reviews went on about are no problem and certainly not aggressive. A BRILLIANT HOLIDAY......... THANKYOU TUNTAS STAFF!"
