We stayed for 11 nights at the Oyster Residences in June/July, booked so that we could attend our daughter’s wedding celebration at the Blue Lagoon and spend some time with friends and family.
We much enjoyed our stay. The hotel is full of character, the rooms are ‘shabby chic’ decorated with the owner’s paintings. We had a few problems with jammed wardrobe doors and leaks from the shower - these were swiftly dealt with, but the room could do with some refurbishment.
There is a varied menu, with food freshly prepared and of a high standard. We ate elsewhere on a couple of evenings, but decided that the ambience, food and service at the Oyster Residences was hard to beat and ate here every other evening.
The pool area is a haven of peace away from the hubbub of the parade at the front. The pool was very clean and a pleasant temperature - cool enough to be refreshing but warm enough not to feel chill if you stayed in. Room 110 has a private sitting area overlooking the pool and we found this an ideal shady place to sit and read or to entertain friends and family who called in.
Breakfasts were good, with juice, coffee, fruit and yoghurt etc available from a buffet and then a selection of hot food, Turkish or English, cooked to order. A table at the front of the restaurant area provides a grandstand view of the paragliders landing and the tourist boats departing.
Sue, Sayid and the restaurant staff provided an excellent service. F
