A DAD blasted hotels.com for not revealing his Turkish holiday resort banned alcohol and had single sex pools.
Jamie Sewell and pal Tanya Young paid £1,900 for their last-minute deal at the five-star hotel.
But they found separate lifts for men and women and limited internet use at the Bera Hotel in Alanya.
Secretary Tanya, 36, was also not allowed her mobile by the pool and was asked to wear a full body swimsuit.
Entrepreneur Jamie, 36, whose partner Sam, 29, could not fly due to a blood clot, said: “My main issue is we ended up looking disrespectful and that’s not what we wanted at all.
“We booked with two days’ notice. The hotel looked fabulous but there was no mention of it being for observing Muslims.
“We told a taxi driver where we were heading and he looked at us as if to say ‘Why are we going there?’.

“A woman on the desk also looked shocked. The hotel was incredible, it’s a testament to the place that we stayed for the week. But that’s not the kind of holiday we were after — we wanted drinks by the pool and a catch-up. But we were still fuming we had been misled by hotels.com.”
Jamie, of Dunmow, Essex, said hotels.com has since changed the listing to highlight some differences.
The firm said: “We are sorry this wasn’t what the customer was expecting and we didn’t handle their complaint well at the time. We are seeing what we can do to make up for this.”
