As you’d expect with a name like Greenland, this hotel is surrounded by pine trees that stretch as far as the eye can see. It’s on the edge of sleepy Ovacik village, just ten minutes from Olu Deniz, Turkey’s top beach. The hotel lays on a free shuttle bus, so getting there’s a cinch. At the hotel itself, there’s a tree-lined main pool with a water chute and a pool bar serving cocktails. Plus, the buffet restaurant makes the most of its poolside spot with floor-to-ceiling windows and an outdoor terrace. And when it comes to rooms, the standard ones have been given a refurb so they’re really fresh and contemporary.

Absolutely Great Hotel
This was our first time at the Greenland Hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hotel staff and management could not have been more helpful. We were with our son and daughter-in-law ( a gift from them) in September - their 13th time at the hotel. It was touch and go whether we would be able to fly, as 6 weeks before our departure date my husband had an accident and broke his ankle and crushed his heel. The Hotels Accommodation Manager and staff were very attentive and supplied a wheelchair so my husband could be a bit more mobile. We sourced and hired a Mobility Scooter from Nearby Hisaronu at a cost of £175 for 10 days and it was a gods-send. It was a robust 4 wheel type and I can certainly recommend the hire coy and pass on their details. We were in block 2 and the room was really nice and had a small balcony with a really nice en-suite. The breakfast and meals were good and varied and the chefs always on hand producing something different - we even had Sushi. There was food available at the top and bottom bar most of the day and beverage stations dotted about the hotel and unbelievably the best Tea I have tasted abroad. It is only a short dolmus or taxi journey to the nearby shops and restaurants in Hisaronu the beautiful beach at Olu-Deniz. A favourite eating place was Castello's where the T/Bone steak and food was delicious and loved sitting on the balcony watching all that was going on around us. I can't think of a negative comment for the hotel or staff and we have booked for this year. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.More

Great place to stay, with a fantastic backdrop of mountains and tranquil area you can escape the hustle and bustle of life and relax for a week or two or you can get a mini bus to the town of hisaronu or Fethiye market on a Tuesday or to the fish market. Whatever you want from an holiday it's hear and we are making this a regular retreat.More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a two week all inclusive holiday at the end of July, start of August 2013. ARRIVAL ----------- We arrived late at night, after flying from London Gatwick and went with Thomas Cook for the holiday. Upon arrival at the airport we walked over to the pick-up area and were greeted by a Thomas Cook rep you put us straight on a coach that then left a few minutes later. The transfer to the hotel from Dalaman airport didn't feel too long (was roughly 45mins I think, but can't completely remember). We got to see plenty of the surrounding areas and were the first stop for the coaches route. When we arrived at the hotel, checking in was a very quick and easy process. Paid for use of the safety deposit box in the room. Didn't actually read before going that there was a charge for this, however, the price was only around £1.50 per night or something which didn't seem all that bad. The hotel seemed to prefer British money over Euros, but also accepted Turkish Lira. ROOM -------- The room was very clean and tidy. It had twin beds instead of the double bed we were expecting. Apparently in the notes about your stay box when booking the holiday, if you ask for a double bed then Thomas Cook request this when arranging the holiday. The man showing us to the room put the beds together and the maid switched the sheets for a double sheet and double duvet cover the next morning. The room facilities were good, with a powerful shower and clean bathroom, plenty of space for luggage and a few plug sockets to use. It had a small balcony which you could sit out on, however, we preferred just to use it to dry clothes and swimwear. STAFF -------- The maid was very friendly and she cleaned our room every morning, changing the bedding and towels as well. One day we came back to the room to find she had left a flower arrangement on the bed as she seemed to like us! The other staff around the hotel were very helpful, friendly and hard working. It seemed to be the same set of staff for the whole duration of our stay. FOOD AND DRINK ------------------------ There was a reasonably good variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The selection was best for lunch and dinner as at breakfast we got used to the stuff they provided fairly quickly. However, as it was hot and there was so much on offer we found we never went hungry and enjoyed the food that we ate. There was a stand each night at the restaurant serving something unique to that day, like doughnuts, pancakes or something. This stand seemed to change each day. The service for drinks was absolutely excellent. I have heard about many all inclusive hotels were you are often waiting for ages, or there are rules about one drink for each person who comes to the bar. At many you apparently have to tip if you want the bar staff to come to you quickly. However, none of this was the case here. They were very quick and would give you a tray of drinks if you asked for them! HOTEL --------- There are two pool areas in the hotel, both of which were nice to sunbathe. We found that you had to get there fairly early if you wanted a pair of sunbeds and an umbrella. There was regularly single sunbeds or sunbeds with no umbrellas. However, by walking around the pool it wasn't too hard to move them around or find an umbrella someone wasn't using. We managed to find them every time we went to the pool. The pools were very nice, with water of the perfect temperature. We found that the top pool was very relaxing and quiet, whereas the bottom pool with the water slide was very loud as that was where all the children went. We mostly stuck to the top pool area. There is a bar next to each pool area to get drinks and snacks all day. ENTERTAINMENT ----------------------- There was a variety of evening entertainment, however, this was fairly repetitive and can't comment much more as we didn't really go to most of it. Same with the sports and other activities offered during the day. The Thomas Cook rep offered a selection of trips that we could go on at extra cost. We went on a few of these and they were absolutely fantastic, especially the boat cruise and scuba diving. This was all arranged at the hotel. BEACHES ------------- The hotel offers a free bus shuttle service to the beach. We tried the beach that they suggested, but didn't really enjoy it. There was quite a lot of sediment floating in the water. However, the next time we used the bus and asked to be dropped at the other beach that you had to pay a small amount to enter (4 lira or so, can't remember the exact price but that is only a pound or two.) This beach was absolutely fantastic, with amazing water to swim in and platforms to dive from. Sun beds aren't free at any of the beaches, but aren't too expensive (about 15 lira for the day). AREA ------- There is a couple of towns quite close to the town that you can go to for restaurants, shops and clubs. You can either walk for about 40mins or just get a Dolmus. These are effectively minibuses, that stop by the road and charge you a few Lira to go to the destination. They are much cheaper than other transport. GENERAL ------------- As you may be able to tell, the area of Turkey this hotel is in prefers British money or Turkish Lira. Apparently the best currency to use changes in different parts of Turkey. The exchange rate for the Euro where we stayed was awful and that was all we took as Euros are preferred in other parts of Turkey. There was a cash point in the town near the hotel that allowed me to withdraw British pounds with no charge. Then a shop to exchange them for Lira that offered a better exchange rate than the hotel. However, the hotel exchange rate was very reasonable for whenever I needed it. As a whole we absolutely loved the holiday and the hotel. We would definitely consider going again if we were to go to the area. Can't recommend this hotel enough! There are so many bad all inclusive hotels and this is definitely not one of them! 5*More

We stayed in Hotel Greenland for a week in June 2013 as a couple and a mum and son (aged 6). The hotel was clean but basic. We stayed in one of the middle blocks and we found the room to be tiny with not enough space to have two suitcases open at once! We requested a double room but were given a twin but this wasn't too much of an issue. The food was basic but hot and edible. The snack bar throughout the day provided a good alternative to what could be quite a 'samey' buffet. The pools were clean but cold (this was nice in contrast to the searing Turkey heat so more of a compliment than complaint!) The activities were a bit sparse and I feel there could have been much more for children to do. The staff were all helpful and friendly. The atmosphere of the whole hotel was relaxed and friendly. Unfortunately it was quite a long walk to the closest towns which left you stranded in the hotel unless you were happy to pay for a taxi every evening. It was a nice break but not somewhere we would visit again due to the lack of activities and we tend to prefer a beachfront hotel! relatively decent value for money though.More
