THE BEST HOTEL IN HISARONU
"What can I say liberty once Asena is the best hotel the staff makes this hotel next year will be our 14th time here we lost out for 3 years due my partner being ill we are always in contact with hotel as you are family their motto time to make friendship is true as I said we have been coming here since 2000 our last visit was in 2013 but I can tell you it was the most memorable time I had the fun the entertainment and of course the staff David, Serta, Ersoy, Gaavin , Ishmae lKoray Dumui , head chef and the reception, Hakan Nurgal are fantastic as all are and of course, the hotel manager they can't do enough for you in making your stay enjoyable the scenery is beautiful the mountain stunning in July August September you get a mauve color just amazing you have excellent Ala carte restaurant at the entrance as well as the main restaurant where the entertainment is the terrace bar is fantastic as well as the pool bar during the day with water games the pool bar serves very fine food I always have Boreck my favorite, you must try as it's the chef's specialty. evenings Turkish night on certain days that's a must everything entertainment wise you can't fault.and when ye boys do their stuff the monty on the walls everywhere around you is a must see.
The town is a short distance with many bars my favorite Chinese is shanghai blue above Asda best Chinese in town owners Koray and Sue I've known for quite a while all the good is cooked and you can see them cooking it if you look in te center of the room.its got an open area very nice to cool down during the height of the season. In town you have many shops clothes glasses if you need them and chemists we go to te o E past the phone box's to te left and straight up there is a medic their Dr Hakan the town has other spots Eski bar if still their good place to sit. Domino's further down, does the best fish and chips like home if still there as I said I've not been in 3 yrs I'm giving my experience when I was there here and you must go to the talk of the town drag queens great night but don't sit at the front as you will be the target for fun..
Oludenize beach is also a place to visit it's very hot but enjoyable bring water there is many bars and restaurants you can eat in .in the evening at 6pm at the buzz bar for amazing sunset you will ever see the beach get quite a few to see it.
You have everything you can want trips beach and the amazing hotel liberty and toLiberty we will see you 5/8/17

"this is my third year back at this hotel and love it. it is a short walk into the main town hisaronu and olu deniz. the first year i went the entertainment and staff were brilliant.The asena boys dancing around in the terrace bar and getting everyone involved and also doing different things like juggling bottles that were on fire. the hotel is still fab but i think more could be done for the children during the day as the first year we went there was movies and activities for them which the past two year there has only really been a disco which lasts 3 songs.there was a new girl this year for kids entertainment becky, i think she needs to get more activities going as when the slides go off there isnt alot for the children to do. If becky could have some water games, football etc going on while the slides are closed it would be great. i would recommend this hotel to all turkey lovers. the rooms are spotless the cleaners are always in cleaing and the rooms are very spacious. the staff are great and always up for a laugh they get on well with all there guests and make it an enjoyable holiday. i have seen people there from previous years of visiting this hotel and meet new people each year who say it is not there first time at the asena. Even thought things have changed we will be returning to the asena again next year and look forward to seeing everyone again. Sait Yasin gokan ali ekrem and all the others just to many to mention. Keep up the good work"

Not been to Hisaronu for the last two years but often in my thoughts.
"My wife and I have stayed at the Asena in 2007 and in 2010.We have also visited in between for a Turkish bath and to say hello to the marvelous staff that work there.The Asena village hotel is by far the most entertaining hotel in Hisaronu.The food is excellent the housemaids keep it spotless and the staff are very friendly and helpful.The facilities there such as the barber shop and the Hamam are fantastic.We would love to go back and have a holiday there but as we live in Northern Cyprus the flights are almost impossible from here to Dalaman.We will get back to see you all even if we have to 'swim' across.
Best wishes to all our friends across there .....Jim and Dee.XXXX"

Best holiday ever
"We have recently returned from asena village hotel and we had a fantastic time, it was are 1st time in turkey and we will be goin back next year. The staff gokhan, Ugur, kadhir and david just to mention a few made are holiday they are really friendly and very hard working nothing was ever to much for them they entertained us the whole holiday. The hotel is lovely very clean the waterslides in the pool are great for the kids and if they got bored of them the entertainment staff were always doing something to entertain them. The rooms are basic but comortable and were cleaned everyday. The food in the restarant if staying half board was lovely and plenty on choice so you never got bored. The location is perfect for families its not to far to walk along to the town where there is loads of shops,bars and resturants and they are great value for money. I would definitely recommend this hotel and already have to my friends and family and cant wait to go back next year."

You cant fault it.the staff are amazing they make your holiday to remember I kid you not.the poolbar staff. will have you in fits all day and they keep it going upstairs in the terrace bar in the evening.

Just fantastic urgh the manager is a gentleman his secound in command is so polite.they all are they have a hairdressers spa gym pool shop.and on site shop for water yes it might be more than outside but hay your in a hotel.not a caravan site in margate expect to pay a little more.there is a ala cart restaurant in the hotel and very reasonable I do not lie to you and a must.everything about this hotel is amazing and they are upgrading all the time.we will see you all in sept vip ben and family"

Lovely hotel,had a great time.
"We stayed at the Asena in August this year and we could not fault it.
Every where was cleaned everyday and the staff went out of their way to help you and to make sure you had a fabulous holiday.The food and drink was fab as was the entertainment. Lovely reception area with helpful staff. Spa was very relaxing,hairdressers great, and a wonderful photographer.The hotel is only a couple of minutes walk to Hisaronu centre for a good night out.
We would like to give special thanks to Gokhan for all his help, kindness, and wonderful sense of humour, it was very much appreciated and helped to make our stay special. He also speaks very good English and is a very hard worker, as are all of the staff.
We look forward to seeing you in August 2012 for another fun filled holiday. "

Been and been again
"We have been to Asena 5 times since 2004, and every year it gets a little better. The staff are friendly, helpful and entertaining.
The new pool complex and reception shows how serious they are about keeping guests happy and entertained.
Look forward to returning again later this year."

Lovely holiday destination - would recommend to anyone
"Went on a four night, five day short break with my mum for a girly holiday.
I honestly could not fault this place. The rooms are basic but clean and maid service every day! We even had flowers put on our bed and towel arranged in a pretty pattern which you dont expect from a lower starred hotel.
The food was lovely, we went on a half board basis.
The evening entertainment was not all that great but it is literally a five minute walk into Hisaronu where there is a strip of clubs, bars and restaurants.
You can get the dalmas (local bus) from Hisaronu which costs just under 3tl one way to Oludeniz which is beautiful, although i highly recommend buying jelly shoes to go in the sea with as it is stony and hurts!
All in all a lovely hotel, with great staff who could not do enough to help you!
One last bonus for us was an adult only pool which meant that you could stay away from the kiddies if you wanted to and have a rest."
