The Hotel Belcekiz Beach offers a prime spot on the beach and a brilliant à la carte restaurant*.
This place is right on Olu Deniz Beach. A few steps through the hotel’s gardens will get you to the pebbly shore, which is a world-famous landing strip for paragliders.
The complex is set among attractive gardens, with Mount Babadag providing a cinematic backdrop. Rooms are scattered in blocks throughout the grounds, and colourful bougainvillea bursts across their balconies.
We Stayed here mid August for 2 weeks and, as the title of my review suggests, it was fabulous! The Hotel is situated directly opposite the beautiful beach and the mountain backdrop is stunning. The staff at this hotel are so attentive and work tirelessly to make sure that you are having a fantastic holiday. I especially need to mention the ones working the pool bar, who walk around in the searing heat making sure that you are never without a drink! and also the Gardeners and Cleaners who keep this Hotel absolutely immaculate! The food is excellent and beautifully presented with an array of choice that caters for all and if you sit at a table near to the Plaza Bar, you can dine with a wonderful view of the sea. What I especially loved about this Hotel was the fact that, even though it was the height of the season and busy, it had such a chilled out atmosphere, that we hardly noticed. That said, I confess that we never once participated in the 8am 'get your towel on a sunbed by the pool' palava,..WHY??!! and, quite honestly we preferred the natural shade of the garden, where we never had a problem finding free beds, which are only a few steps away from the pool., so there really is no need to go setting that morning alarm!! I will just quickly mention the rooms, as most people have said the same thing, which is, they are small, and that is exactly what they are. However, you are on holiday and how much time do you want to spend in your room anyway? The air-con takes a little while to perfect, but keeping a spare key card in the slot is the solution to walking in to an oven at the end of the day!! This was our first trip to Turkey and it is memorable for all the right reasons. I really don't get some of the negative comments that I have read on here, but I guess, some people just can't be pleased! If you are thinking of holidaying in Oludeniz then I would recommend this Hotel...we will definitely be coming back..!!

Noisy and poor hygeine
Having booked a room with a terrace /balcony we were shown to a room below the pool area without either and looking through bars above us! Asked for one as booked were then shown one above reception with satellite dish and large air vents from kitchen! Back to reception then offered a room on the raised terrace which was ok (709). I feel it may be time to replace some of the bed linen as some of the old stains are rather off putting.
Because of it's position just off the strip it was noisy into the early hours. One of the bars was actually built on to the side of the hotel. The bass thudding till after 3 am was disturbing but I guess you get used to it in the end. The pool bar staff play music too loudly throughout the day. They did turn it down when asked but it kept creeping up again.Off would of been good. Is it really necessary to have music blaring all day anyway? ARe we the only ones who like a nice quiet relax by the pool?
The food was a bit samey but ok. Pizzas were particularly good served as a snack through the afternoon. It would have been nice to have some prepped fresh fruit for breakfast, instead of a plum, grapes or an apple.
Both my partner and I had stomach upsets while we were there as did many others and we are still unwell. Having read some other reviews for the same week I see that it is probably caused by the water coolers which we were led to believe were ok but had actually been filled with mains water via the hosepipe!!! This water is very high in minerals and not suited our digestive systems. Although we were all inclusive we hardly had any alcohol because of our illness but it appears we would have been better off with a shandy!
Staff were pleasant enough though, smiley and chatty. I wonder if those people who found them different are the same ones who never say please or thank you for anything.
Oludeniz is a nice bay but part of the beach and entry into sea is stones and pebbles with a sharp drop into the sea. Not suitable for children.
Paragliding (tandem) is big business and they are constantly passing overhead 20+ at a time. Then coming in to land along the promenade "watch out"!
It was our first trip to Turkey and I don't think we will be rushing back and certainly not to this hotel.More

After a poor start...
...where we arrived at 2.00am just to be ushered to our room without any offer of drink or snack things just got exponentially better during our week here.
Rooms were comfortable but fairly basic, the food was very good but the one thing that sets this hotel way above the rest was the quality and attentiveness of the staff. They couldn't do enough for you. Service in all eateries and bars was warm, friendly and efficient.
We normally shy away from animation teams and hotel entertainment but we found ourselves being drawn in here. The team were so friendly towards everybody you couldn't help being made to feel welcome. The beach bar, where all of the entertainment was performed, was so good that it attracted a lot of paying guests through passing trade.
A special word for Emre at the quiet pool, who was friendly, entertaining and like everybody else, extremely efficient.
We never return to hotels, preferring to try somewhere different every time but this place could change our mindMore

The hotel was absolutely fabulous. I have been to Olu Deniz twice before but this was the first time at this hotel. I could not fault a thing. The service, the food, the location, the cleanliness of the room was all spot on. I would definitely go back again. We stayed in one of the rooms around the quiet pool and it was perfect.More

Pluses for this hotel
Front line direct access to beach.
Walking distance to shops,bars and good restaurants.
Staff at hotel are first class, very pleasant and always helpful.
Although we went on this holiday knowing it was all inclusive our intentions were always to eat out at night, the reason for this is that buffet food as they serve it is never hot but always only warm,the hot and cold foods just sit there for a long time allowing flies and things to do what they do.
The rooms are very small, the bathrooms are the smallest we have ever seen(2 people could not be in there at the same time.
The pool area could have been kept cleaner.
In my opinion this hotel could be given 5star status because of its frontline location, other than that it is no more than a three star and that's at a push.
The hotel has good points as I have said, the bar where you end up at night is very good, all the waiters and bar staff are great,
The hotel as a restaurant attached to it that they say you get 15% off your bill that is the case but if you choose wine from the menu you have to pay but it still comes from the same all inclusive bar that is a few yards away.
We enjoyed the holiday but for me the hotel could have been better,the hotel was the first hotel to be built in the area many years ago so the structure would be hard to change hence the smallest bathrooms in the hotel world.
It's great location makes up for a lot of its faults.More
