STAR APARTHOTEL - Altinkum

When I was in Turkey last week a lovely place to have a chill day (I managed one) is the Star Aparthotel beside Circus and Rosita's Chinese Restaurant.
You can use the pool, restaurant, shower and facilities at the back of the Aparthotel for the cost of buying your drinks.
The lady in charge comes across initially as a little dour, however she is actually very nice. Loves to chat and the facilities are spotless.
Every time anything is shifted, moved or upset in any way, the guy is over to tidy and clean in preparation for the next folks in.
All in all a lovely day was spent in the sun, it was much needed and appreciated.

I should have added there is a covered, shaded area with a settee to sit and chill with a book, didn't manage that luxury, but hey, maybe next time.

Umbrella's are also available for those who like to have one over their sunbed.

Anything you order will be brought to you to enable you to have the chillest of days!!! Sheer luxury.

Prices are not over the top either I thought.

Re: STAR APARTHOTEL - Altinkum

In my opinion Crystalchris Yes, it was quiet, clean and had everything you need.
Give it a try, see what you think. Kiddies pool also beside the bigger pool.
A room for the night she told us was 25lira to include breakfast.
I said to the lady, everything is lovely and clean, she said I like clean, yes I said so do I, very much so.

Re: STAR APARTHOTEL - Altinkum

The girlies and I spent some days there last year and also had a little lunch party - its a lovely little pool and nice friendly staff. However for somewhere to take the kids you would probably be better at the Esra Hotel where lots of our friends and family stay when they visit.....but the ladies walking group which changes to a sunbathing group in the summer will no doubt be spending a day or two at the Star swimming pool, though by putting it on the forums our best kept secret may no longer be that quiet!!!!!!

Re: STAR APARTHOTEL - Altinkum

Hi Tess, Our experience was not so pleasant. The first afternoon we used it hubby and I took granddaughter 3 years old down. I got into baby pool with her and hubby bought a drink - spent an hour in total - no problem. Next day daughter, son in law, 2 babies (3 and 2) hubby and self went down. Hubby bought two drinks immediately we arrived, son in law and I got in pool with 2 babies. After about 1/2 an hour daughter went to buy another drink and was told in no uncertain terms that if she wanted to use the facilities she had to buy a drink or pay a cover charge that this was a business (she was buying a drink). Daughter then bought 2 drinks instead of 1 and said that she had just been told off by the owner. To cut a long story short daughter was so embarrassed she packed her belongings and took the two children out of the pool and went back to the apartment. I went to the bar and told the owner that we had bought drinks as soon as we came in and that as I was in the water with two babies it was impossible for me to drink anything but that we never would have just used her facilities and not bought anything because that is not the way we work. The whole eposide was very embarrassing especially as we had been paying our way and were not trying to free load as she seemed to imply.
