The Hotel Montebello puts you in a great spot for exploring Olu Deniz. Back at base, you’ve got pools, waterslides, and a helping of bars.
This hotel is in a great location if you like getting out and about. It’s 10 minutes’ walk from the bars and restaurants in Olu Deniz, as well as the sand-and-shingle beach. Hisaronu, meanwhile, is a 5-minute taxi ride away.
Inside, everything’s modern and up to date. Bedrooms are stylish, with splashes of teal brightening up neutral colour schemes. The rest of the place is bright and airy, while recessed LED lighting changes the mood after dark.
The pool is surrounded by a large sun terrace with plenty of sunbeds and parasols, overlooked by the mountains the serene and tranquil pool will give you the chance to catch up on some well-deserved relaxation.
These smart, stylish twin rooms are a great base for your holiday. There's air-conditioning and Wi-Fi* available in your room plus you'll also have satellite or cable TV and a safety deposit box*. There's outside space too - you can make use of the balcony if required.
This modern double room has been styled simply but effectively with accents of colour. There's air-conditioning and Wi-Fi* provided in your room plus satellite or cable TV and a safety deposit box*. There's outside space provided by a balcony. Just so you - know this room sleeps 3 people with an extra bed in the bedroom.
I just wanted to write a review as we stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks in October 2012 which is when we last went to Turkey.
We have just booked to come back for our 2 week summer holiday this year on 2 July.
As the other reviews say this hotel is in a great location not too far from the bars, shops and beach but out of the way enough for it to be quiet.
The staff work very hard keeping the hotel clean.
When we last visited we stayed on the basis of half board as the hotel was due to become All Inclusive in 2013.
We ate at the hotel a few times and the food was good, not much to choose from but what was served was good.
We had stayed in a different location near by when we had visited earlier on in the year so there were many restaurants in Olu Deniz and Hissaranou that we wanted to return to. Eating out in Turkey is cheap unlike anywhere else we have been on our travels and the food is good.
It's easy to get around by dolmas and very cheap.
We are very much looking forward to coming back to the Montebello!
Stayed here in May 2016 with 4 females friends. The hotel was lovely,clean,modern and spacious. The family room we had was lovely,clean but no view :-(. The food was good,hot and very tasty,different variety every night.Visited the spa for a turkish bath and pamper and it was worth the money.Would definately go back to this hotel. The only negatives where: No where quiet to sunbath,the pool gets noisy with music playing especially when it was half-term n the middle of my holiday .Also the entertainment wasnt enough to keep us there at night,even all-inclusive but that was nt a problem as we love to party in Hisaronu just up the mountain.More
Love turkey, love olu deniz just a bit disappointed in this hotel. Stayed in hisarono previously and had a wonderful hotel. I feel as you're nearer to the beach it's more difficult to find a lovely hotel.
Staff were ok but could be much improved as not always helpful.
Triple room excellent but small double not so, located next to the cleaners mop and not enough room to swing a cat. Food great and good choice, staff in restaurants lovely with nice attitudes.
Pool and facilities including spa excellent.
Son left his mobile phone in room and despite contacting hotel several times upon return no reply back which was very disappointing. Won't stay here again.More
I visited this hotel in June 2014, the food was great in quality and lots of variety. There was little to no entertainment, and the hotel could do with an update.
One major thing is the wasp issue! At every meal there was sooooooo many wasps, and nothing was being done about it?
Staff weren't great, we requested a late checkout at the time of booking (more than enough notice), but were told on arrival they cant guarantee until the day of check out?! So we were kicked out of our rooms from 1pm, and our transfer was not collecting until 7pm!More

If only it was managed
We traveled to the Montebello 27 September with a group of 8 adults. To put this review into context i have visited Turkey over 15 times in the last 7 or 8 years and twice earlier this year.
Firstly the positives:
The cleaners keep the rooms and the hotel spotless and are very friendly a real asset to the hotel.
The location is good.
The pool is big enough and there was no need to rush for sunbeds. Although this may be different in peak season.
The photographer and the spa rep great fun, even if the spa rep wasnt as good as good at table tennis as he thought!!
Both dinning rooms look good and nice to be open.
Staff apart from the ones mentioned were more interested in their mobile phones than doing their job.
The outside bar staff were rude, dismissive and were not interested in interacting with anyone. Would often stop serving half way through an order to have a chat or look at anothers phone. During the evening a man who sat at the end of the bar (allegedly the owner) did nothing to change this.
No table service although staff would just stand there chatting and tweeting!!
Inside bar, even worse, both guys we saw has personality bypass.
Restaurant.. Lunchtime was average at best, very rarely got any table service for drinks again although several staff doing nothing.
Evening... quality of food below average if not poor. You might be lucky to get a drink served but it would take some time and no chance of another. The worst thing though was the slow plate clearance. One night a television had football on in the end of the restaurant and most of the staff were watching it!!!
Drinks... well these were all over the place, out of 8 drinks at a time at least one would be wrong and at least 4 would be inconclusive as to what spirit was in the mixer. Even if you asked for more spirit it was not forthcoming and when you asked for less mixer every glass filled to the rim and over.
Entertainment .... well lets just say, unless you like Punch & Judy dont bother.
Pool area cleaner...the pool is open it says until 7pm. however at about 5 up would pop this guy with his buffing machine clattering sunbeds around and buffing next to youre bed!!!! Yes the window to get the area clean and opened up for the evening is only 7-7.30 but put a couple of guys on it. His cable was a menace as well especially as it was repaired and taped up in several areas all which were seen on many occasion to be in the pool!!
Wifi...although its not my greatest requirement was awful.
In could go on more but no. I appreciate its getting towards the end of the season but if i had their attitude to business on a friday i would be bankrupt. The lady swanning around during the day and the guy at the end of the bar (if indeed they were management) need to get a handle on this hotel and not take for granted that Thomson will serve up a fresh paid up bus full of tourists everyday next year. I would return again to Olu Deniz for 5th time but definitely not this hotel unless things change drastically. Its a pity because it could be a great hotel and you have great cleaners and maids.More
