10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
good ozcan, def not bad
"mac + boo went to the oz-can may 10th and on the way over the mountain(spectacular but scarry!!) i started to get anxious, as id read an awful lot of reviews on this hotel and frankly all v bad!!. we got it cheap and its only a place to rest your head, i thought. well on arrival , reception is clean efficient and prompt. good clean room ,free air con, safe and fridge ( good start). room over looking the beach + pool. fantastic views clean warm sea( a bit stoney) the village of turunc is peaceful,quiet and lively all in one. best bar is habit ,which is behind the main hotel. really good places to eat, even a chippy that has mushy peas and gravy!!. the hotel must of read every review ever written about it, or been taken over/ new management because it nothing like what people have written. the food is turkish, wine spirits and wine are served generously and every gripe has been sorted out. it is a really good quality value hotel, really good. we are going back in sept, say no more. say hi to julie and kim and the fellas in habit bar, they made a good holiday better. mac + boo"

A very pleasant week
"I cannot fault this hotel as a value for money venue. It was clean and the rooms were large by Turkish standards with air con and safes included in the price. The food was basic but plentiful and well presented. Although I would say it would not suit the tattoed masses as I only saw a chip once and not a burger in sight. The staff were excellent and went out of there way to help when I had a problem with my transfer. Private beach and small pool in the middle of town a great place to stay."

"We stayed at Hotel Ozcan three times last year and i must say I disagree with all the negative reviews, the staff in the hotel are just fantastic, and cannot do enough for you, we all went on a boat rip with "Gulie" the lovely lady who looks after the guests, and she is so genuine and made our boat trip a day to remember, the bar staff are so friendly and also helpful, Murrat the manager again makes sure everyone is happy, yes the hotel is basic, but it is very clean, and we had no complaints with our food, we certainly dont think you could get better value for money."

Turunc Beautiful Ozcan Awful
"My friend and i went to Ozcan Hotel all inclusive for 2 weeks , in the 2 weeks we were there we ate 3 times at dinner never had more than 4 drinks yuk yuk no Effes the only place in Turunc not to sell it ...Tuborg !!!! Cheap cheap lager. We arrived on the monday afternoon and was told the bedding and towels were changed every 3 days well the towels were taken on the wednesday but none left so we had to ask for some , the bedding was not changed until the sunday and only because we had had enough and put them on the floor. The cleaners were coming round most times about 4 to 430 in the afternoon when we were relaxing after a full day in the sun. The pool is hilarious you can`t go in it as it has dining chairs all the way round so if you were to jump in you would splash everyone , there really isn`t anything good to say about this hotel. We ended up at the ozcan appartments every day for use of the pool. oh and let me just add the young lad at the appartments was very very good ...The only good thing about being all inclusive is that we could use the pool. I have been going to turunc for the last 4 yrs twice a yr and never ever been this dissapointed, Ozcan is definetely off my list Self catrering the best idea plenty of good appartments .!!!!!!! Steer Clear Of Ozcan if you want a pool and decent evening meal and of course towels and bedding changed regular ......."

i would not recommend
"I have just got back from this hotel and never again. Hotel is very basic but clean . fridge in room did not work and was not fixed. staff where ok but looked very unhappy, the turkish lady who said she was customer service was unhelpful she is very fake. the cleaning lady with bloud colur hair is very good and helful and we gave her a big tip and she was very gratgeful. this hotel is very central for everything, but the food is so not good they do not throw away anything. breakfast is so limited lunch im not going to say, you will get this for dinner. Im sure they do there best if your on limted buget this hotel is ok it is bearable . it is best to go self catering and eat out the allinclusive was not worth it. the village is a lovely place and i will be going back but hotel i would never recommend."

"There are two parts to the Hotel either side of the road, we stayed in the older building, on the beach side of the road, in fact that was the only good point. We were on the third floor and there are no lifts, rooms are clean, basic and very cramped, the fridge was disgusting and stank of sour milk. I could have cried when I saw the pool ( love to sunbathe by the swimming pool) it wasn't possible the surrounding area was filled with tables and chairs ready to accommodate the guests for each feeding frenzy, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food was poor with the hot choice being served by chef and he would place a very meagre dollop on your plate and if you wanted more you would have to rejoin the rather long queue which seldom died down. The bar would close dead on 11pm and no more drinks are available after that time your only choice is to go on to other bars. It does have its own small section of beach but in order to cram as many people on to it the parasols and sun beds are tightly packed together, in fact I could hardly get any sun at times and there was no room to move the sun bed to another spot. The beach was dirty and covered with cigarette butts. Turunc is a very pretty place shame about the hotel!"

Dont stay here
"Dont go to this hotel,the place is terrible.There is no swimming pool as such because basically the swimming pool is the all inclusive dining room. The staff are probably the rudest i have ever come across.The food is very basic mainlely aimed at the Turkish holiday makers ie salads and yoghurt with everything.If you have young children dont stay at this hotel as at mealtimes children are not catered for. Dont let this review put you of going to Turunc as the place is beautiful.The nightlife is what you want it to be can be quiet but also busy if you look. If you are planning a trip to turunc close your eyes on the transfer journey as it is not for the faint hearted,when there speak to Smiley he sells the lemon and will probably be wearing my Rangers shirt.He is one great guy and will point you in the right direction of what bars to go to. I will be definately back next year just not to the Ozcan When there have a meal at Fevris place just next to Ozcan best meal in turunc believe we tried them all.You must also go the market but dont go to the one at turunc get the taxi boat to either Icmelar or Marmaris both bigger and better value, it is also an experience believe me."

"Just returned from a fabulous weeks holiday in Turunc. What a lovely destination! Quiet, peaceful and yet with enough bars and restaurants to have a nice night out every night with some sort of live entertainment going on somewhere each night. If you're looking for a bit more of a livlier night out then a water taxi is cheap and last one back is at 1am. You can browse shops here without any hassle and the people are friendly. The drive into Turunc itself is a little hairy! Can't get a coach down these winding cliff top roads, so you have to come on a minibus, but if your nerves can stand it - it really is worth it. However, if you're going then i wouldn't necessarily recommend staying at the Ozcan. It is okay. Very very basic, but clean, had a free safe in room and has air conditioning which we really appreciated. We were 'All inclusive' and it was a big let down so don't waste your money on that as you could prob eat out every night for the extra we paid. The breakfasts were poor, lunches were ok and dinner was practically the same as lunch which was dissappointing. No choice at all. We ate out most nights (and really the restaurants are so lovely and cheap). If you get a really cheap self catering price then i'd say go for it - otherwise book elsewhere!"

peace and quiet
"The Hotel is in the center of Turunc and split up in two parts on both sides of the main street. The main Hotel is on the main street and the other by the beach. The rooms are basic but clean but hot water was only available after about 17:00. Most meals had a good choice of salad but the choice of main meal was take it or leave it. The meals themselves were of good quality but don't expect chips with everyting as most are Turtish, we stopped for two weeks and the second week was a repeat of the first but you have a good choice of resturants outsde. A cheap but good resturant was next to the petrol station where fresh trout can be had for 8 Lire (about Â£3.20). The Mosque is just over from the Hotel so you can expect to hear the call for payers 5 times a day. Staff were freindly and the minor problems we had were sorted out very quickly. Turunc is a quiet village town with freindly people to give you a nice peaceful and relaxing holiday, if you have not been before check out a serch for turunc village where you can view a virtual tour of Turunc if you get the right site. The local dolmus service to Icmeller or Marmaris runs every 30 min and is 4 Lire. The taxi boat back from Marmaris is nice way to return from a day out at 7.5 Lire."
