We went for 10 Days from 7th October 2014. The Hotel was excellent, very friendly staff and very clean. It is half way up a mountain above the town of Olu Deniz with free bus shuttle to beach. It is a Spa Centre having steam room , Jacuzzi, Turkish bath all free to use.
We had an excellent rep called Rob but he has now gone to Mexico for a year.
Depends on what room you have, some can be a long walk up slopes or steps.
We would return again anytime.More
I am now back in Istanbul from my wonderful vacation. Great hospitality from management and staff . The service was perfect, everyone was hospitable and very accommodating. The guests feel like family. I love Montana and will return.More
Osman Sencer T,
Don't go late in season
Just came back from 11 nights. After reading the reviews and a personal recommendations, we were really looking forward to this holiday, but came back disappointed.
The first standard room that we were booked into was very basic with a small double bed, small bathroom and no proper wardrobe. We straight away paid extra for a superior room that was much more like a standard 4 star room we are used to.
Our main disappointment was with the standard of service which we were told was exceptional. They had clearly cut back on staff as we struggled to get any service during the day. We couldn't get a drink around the dolphin pool until after mid day. There eas no one at the reception bar and only 1 person at the top pool bar.
We couldn't eat outside for breakfast as there were too many wasps. The hotel was very busy as we struggled to get a table in the evening, so why the shortage of staff?
We found the food average when compared to other platinum hotels we have been to in other countries.
There is also a problem with stray cats jumping on outside tables to take food from plates when people are getting there next course.
The entertainment had also been cut back as it didn't start until 9.30. By then, we were too tired and went to bed. Earlier in the season, the entertainment started at 8.30 with more at 9.30.
On the plus side, it is a great quiet place to unwind, with lots of good walks on your doorstep.
The staff are very friendly as are the cleaning staff.
The views from the front bedrooms are wonderful.
You get a free safe and fridge and free wi fi
My advice would be to not go late in the season unless you want a really quiet holiday with slow service.
Hope this helpsMore

The Best Staff in the World!!! 5 star !!!
This was our 7th stay at the stunning Montana Pine Resort and this was our second visit this year!!! so that should tell you how fantastic this hotel is!!!!
We have not found any other hotel or location that comes close!!! The staff are by far the most friendly, helpful, natural and informative that you could ever wish to meet. Nothing is too much trouble and they all greet you daily with stunning smiles.
We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a refurbished room which made our stay even more special and comfortable. These rooms offer a very modern 4 star feel with plenty of hanging space and drawers. ( I do not travel light so no problems for space) The cleaners have become friends and are always smiling and do an exceptional job.
The animation team were exceptional this year and a big thank you to Alina And Cipry who we have become close friends with. The morning stretching and abs workouts helped to keep the weight off even though the food was more than delicious.
The salads are spectacular and Soner deserves a big well done in keeping this part of the menu so varied. I do not like garlic and he always made sure he told me the dishes to avoid. One day he even made me a special salad with no garlic and got my husband crackers to have with cheese when they were not on the menu. These little extra touches are so special and certainly not expected!!!
The entertainment was very good and varied and due to the cooler evenings was held inside the main building rather than outside. This was very cosy and gave a lovely atmosphere.
I cannot recommend this hotel any higher, it is simply stunning!!! beautiful!! oh and the hotel photographer is just amazing at his job and the nicest person!! Well done Montana Pine you remain my favourite place!!!More
Just returned after spending one week at Montana Pine. I should clarify my 3 star rating, I never give 5 stars as it it would really have to be somewhere v.special.
So why not 4 stars? Basically the resort is v.nice, clean, friendly & in a good mountainous position.
The rooms are fine (but no flannels/face cloths.....never been anywhere in the World that doesn't provide these).
The food is the main reason for not giving 4 stars. There is plenty of it, well cooked, but somewhat uninspiring and nothing really of Turkish cuisine, which might have been nice. The restaurant is laid out in what I can only describe as a school canteen....not v.original in my opinion.
We made use of the free shuttle & also the Dolmus bus to get about. Weather for second half October was good with some dramatic thunderstorms at night, weather really broke as we left, with plenty of rain.
Have to say the pools at the Resort were freezing! The free Turkish Bath/steam room/jacuzzi were great.
Not sure we will return for a while.More
