A great sized rectangular pool is surrounded by trees which help shade the sun terrace during the heat of the day. Also the pool has sunbeds and parasols and is only a few steps away from the pool bar.
We spent ten days here in July/August. The hotel is fine for a budget holiday, clean with good facilities although my bed was a bit lumpy. The air-conditioning worked ok but was a bit too gentle even on full blast. It cost £4 per day and was necessary for us. As previous reviews have said, towels were left on sunbeds from an early hour despite signs asking guests not to! However, we didn't spend our days around the pool and went on a few trips. Focus Travel were good. Their paragliding was excellent and about £40 cheaper than through Thomson. The yacht trip on Fulya (through Focus) is recommended as there was an absence of loud music and at times it was using wind power and silent....great stops for swimming and diving. We were given a 'free' sunset cruise one evening which culminated on a small beach where all the plastic bottles from the boat were burnt - lots of fumes ...not recommended unless you like really loud music alongside your sunset views.
The food we had on a couple of occasions at the hotel was well priced. Restaurants we recommend are 'The Secret Garden', Oba Restaurant (back streets) and Harry's on the front at the corner (nice cocktail bar at top with live music also).
Overall, a good priced budget hotel which is well kept and run.More

The Grand Taner
Spent two weeks here in August with the family. My daughter would give it 5 stars and we had an excellent holiday there but my gripe was the towels left on the sunbeds. Even if I was first one down in the morning the majority of the sun beds were taken even though there were signs to the contrary about leaving towels out. The Grand Taner needs to manage the poolside better in the busiest season.
The bar team; especially Omar gave great service. The rooms were cleaned daily, the food was excellent and good value. The bed was a bit hard for my taste but I got used to it. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
I nearly forgot the doors - very noisy!
We arranged a camel ride through Vulcan Travel (on the corner) as it is not a standard trip from Thomson. We did 5 trips overall and the island boat trip was the highlight with canoeing coming a close second. Be aware with the canoeing it is a challenge and you can't get off when you have had enough.More

Grand Taner 2014
We booked this hotel through Thomson on a late deal. For sub 1k for two people for 10 days we were very happy B&B.
Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and the family that ran the hotel had the young porters insist on taking our bags to our room. Not quite what I'm used to - but when in Rome.
We went into the room and were very pleasantly suprised. We expected an absolute dive. What we were greeted with was a very clean room, clean bathroom, wardrobe, bedside tables and Television. Basic, but we don't go on holiday to sit in our rooms.
The cleaners came every morning around 10am so if you like your lie in's after a heavy night you wont be able to sleep too late.
We didnt spend too much time at the bar, was too much 80's music pumping out at most times however the staff could not do enough to help you.
Bear in mind if you want a safe / air con throughout your stay - you will have to pay for this service. We found 35 degrees at night to unbearable.
The beach is a 5 minute walk and is the most beautiful beach I have ever had the pleasure of viewing and personally found it far superior to the "blue lagoon" which is actually green.
Do bring beach / sea shoes as the shingle is quite hard and really gets to your feet after a while.
Plenty of beach front bars / restaurants - Buzz bar prepared the best fresh food we experienced on the sea front - and Captain hook's respectivley on the strip.
The hotel put on a Belly dancer night and it felt like we had a budget dancer, as she was well fed you couldnt tell if she was dancing or just walking - however the food that was provided by the hotel was fresh and of the utmost quality.
You will not regret this hotel.More
