“worst holiday ever women beware”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

I stayed here in aug,with my partner, 3 daughters an son an my daughters friend it was a nightmare, we went on several trips but dont book through your rep as they charge you 3 times the price. the local tour operaters are far better value, theres a few on ladies each an plenty in the town we paid £60 for a boat trip for 7 adults an it was £80 for the jeep safari but beware on the safari as the day we went some friends from the same hotel were on the jeep safari with us but at the end of the trip whilst returning home the driver of there jeep was driving crazy an crashed there open top jeep an the whole family were hurt very bad an they spent 5 days in hospital an the woman may lose some of her fingers her 12 year old daughter had to have skin grafts all over her back an needs plastic surgers when she returns tho the uk there son damaged his leg badly an the dad had his arm in a cast an the other was ripped open.. But lets get back to the hotel, the staff were rude an arrogant, one waiter picked my 13 year old son up by the neck with a pool cue an slapped him because one of the pool balls came off the table, an DONT go to the massarge treatments on the hotel grounds, myself an my partner went they split us up an the man that was doing my treatment sexualy assulted me an a few other women over 2 days.we were moved hotels very quickly by thomas cook, but the interviews with the police an when in court were very distressing an they made me feel like i was in the wrong, PLEASE DONT TAKE WOMEN OR TEENAGE GIRLS HERE AS THERE NOT SAFE DONT RISK IT.

Room Tip: Pool views are ok as you can see ladiesbeach other rooms u see the back ally way

My wife and I went here on a last minute deal early July £128 each 1 Week B&B, for that price were was not expecting too much, but we were pleasantly surprised, first of all this hotel is a good 20 minute walk to Ladies beach or 10-15 to Kusadasi town, you can catch a dolmus to either at bottom of the road every 5 minutes.

The hotel staff were great nothing too much and they worked all day, room was basic but adequate, breakfast also basic but a good choice, we had omlette every morning, but also had chesse, ham and cereal.

The pool is a decent size and has a fun pool with slides on a lower level which is mostly for kids. each night there is varied entertainment. the excursions are good, in particular the Jeep Safari is excellent and we had the best day of our lives on this safari, then any day on all our other holidays.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who was getting it a good price like we did, but if it was costing you £400+ each person I would look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Do not get a room on the side as you have a limited view, if you get a pool view you also get a wick...

We were at the Lion for the first 2 weeks of September 2011 and had a lovely stay. It is in a good position away from the noise of the town, but close enough to get there on foot or in a few minutes in a Dolmus (minibus). The staff were lovely and very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean and as expected, not luxury as we didn't pay for that, but just fine. If there was one downside it was the noise from other British residents in the early hours, but ear plugs helped, and you get that in all hotels...

Just recently back from a holiday staying in club hotel lion. Wouldefinitely recomment this hotel for familys with children and also couples it has an adult pool which is deep and also a childsren pool with waters slide games throughout the day like vollyball etc and also plays music around it. The rooms are obviouslyu basic and as there was only on socket in the room and opne in the bathroom i invested in a multiple socket plug which i found in a shop in the centre of town. The food is nice although the breakfast served was very basic and there were a lot of flies around the food that was sitting out so only ate eggs every morning with fresh bread. There is a small mini market next to the hotel which is open 24hours and is much cheaper for drinks etc than the hotel for example hotel charged 3,50tl for a tin of juice and the shop charged 1.50tl so we saved money by buying some from there.

Its not a bad distance from the centre of kusadasi and because of were the hotel is situated, taxi rank niext to it which is convient u also good a good breeze during the day and lovely setting for sunset pictures. The room also contains a fridge with snacks in of which you can drink eat etc and they will charge you, but if we need to drink something from it we just went next door to the shop and replaced the drinks for half the price so was cheaper. The staff are so friendly and accomadating, and the nightly entertaiment that the hotel runs is also child friendly and is really fun to watch.

Overall an excellent hotel and would definitely go back again.
