  • We visited during the Eastern Black Sea Tour in September 2018 and stayed overnight. I didn't realize we were at night, but when we woke up in the morning and started walking around Uzungol, I was surprised to see that almost all the writings in front of enterprises were Arabic. I even saw people in the business owner, the Arab. They started to slaughter nature with extreme construction and strange environmental arrangements. It would be a lie if I said that none of the hotels on the Black Sea had a little trouble with my English group because of the lack of alcoholic beverages. I don't think European tourists will come to this area. But the view of Uzungol and the mountains was magnificent.

  • The nature is very nice but the roads are completely impassed by the construction site traffic is very bad two vehicles are not crossed side-by-sides as the excavation area hopefully completes as soon as possible to damage the beauty of nature started

  • A beautiful valley, but overly developed and disappointing. Not only that, most of the roads were ripped up and being replaced around the hotels, making driving anywhere a nightmare. I wish I had visited here maybe thirty years ago before the intense commercialism arrived. Also there should be more public spaces. I went there expecting to stay the day, but left after an hour.
  • Amazing and scenic location. Really takes your breath away. Eat in the city before coming here and menus are easily 1.5x the price.
