Dear All I have just returned back to the UK after spending 10 days at the Ramada Hotel in Kusadasi.

On arrival at the hotel we experienced issues with our transfer, transport, and rooms.

Daily issues that should have been done by the hotel staff routinely with our rooms did not happen to result in numerous visits to the reception desk.

I would like to commend Beyaz he did everything to help and support us nothing was too much, he often went beyond the call of duty.

I would like to thank him for everything he did for me and my friends he made a our stay at the Ramada a positive stay.

Our holiday was wonderful.

Beyaz is a credit to your team.

Please give Beyaz our love.

Thanking you.
