Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

One of the best experiences in Turkey I’ve had and this was our second time here. Everything is world class, especially amid a pandemic our room was cleaned regularly, everything felt sanitary from the pool to the restaurant and extra measures were put in place to ensure the chefs served you food directly to prevent any contamination.

Reception staff were great, very helpful and offered us an upgrade to a better room upon arrival. Our temperature was taken upon entrance to anywhere, whether it be the hotel or the restaurant showing how seriously they took their health and safety. It was reassuring and refreshing to see. Everyone wore masks - all staff and other hotel residents.

Lastly the Animation team were brilliant, Carlos in particular stood out as a very welcoming and friendly face, but all of the team provided great entertainment every night and during the day the poolside activities were also fun and engaging.

I would recommend Garden of Sun to anyone travelling to Turkey as I have felt safe my entire stay with my family. 5 stars!

As previously stated, this should be a 3 star hotel. It has its faults but we embraced it and did not let them spoil the holiday. Very popular with Turkish and Russian guests..I was only aware of 3 other british families staying.

Location. About 10 minute walk into altinkum which is a nice area. Loads of boat trips all offering the same 6 hr trip for about £10 which was good. There is a funfair 5 minutes from the hotel open on evenings which is also good value at £10 for 12 rides.

Food. Large dining room with outside seating. Previous reviews critical of the food are unfair. Loads of good quality choice every day with some food also Bbq'd outside. Food was mainly hot. Floor staff worked non stop and understaffed resulting in shortage of clean tables. Only hotel I have ever been to with no wine available at meals. Food wastage due to guests greed was disgraceful. I would regularly see tables with full plates with food not touched. The outside snack bar served a small selection of food in the afternoons but guests would demand as much as they could carry eg taking 10 large churros leaving none for the other guests queuing.

Rooms. Tired wooden furniture, noisy air con, no WiFi on 5th floor. Our room had been renovated but very poorly (the door collapsed during my
stay and the frame fell off due to being only glued in place).

Pool. Nice deep large pool which was always warm. Kids enjoyed the separate slides but not always operating. Plenty of sunbeds every day with mats although often dirty and I never saw them being washed. Awful unwanted music blasting out from the dj box most of the day. The spa in basement is nice and rarely used. I used sauna etc for free every day.

The hotel is very well organized by anti-epidemic measures. The staff is equipped with protective masks, there is a disinfectant everywhere. The hotel is clean, so are the rooms. The food is delicious and plentiful. The animators are the best and especially Carlos!

It is not a 5 star hotel like it says on their website. I would give max 3 star. All furniture are old, wall paper is peeling off the walls, bathrooms are required a good refurbishment and repair. It is orientated to Turkish tourist and not to foreigners, staff hardly speak English (except reception). Alcohol and soft drinks selection are very limited: instead of juice they are serving squash and claim that it is a juice.
Regarding Covid-19 pandemic risk : Turkish guests don't bother social distancing despite signs and hotel staff tolerate that and don't do anything about it.
Hygiene standards are very poor: beach chairs are dirty with visible stains of dirt, I had to clean it by myself every day because staff simply ignores you. Every day I had to ask 4 set of towels as we were family of 4 people. Also there are no shampoo and conditioner bottles in the bathroom and I had to ask for it too.
Rooms don't have Wifi and I had to wait 2 days until it was sorted out.
I have booked my holiday through HolidayGems and have made a complaint to them. However the response received from Garden of Sun hotel was full of lies and they have denied everything that I've said. It is my worst holiday experience.
I want to warn other tourist - don't book this hotel if you expect 5 star, be prepared to hear lies if you will be unhappy with something.
I can't describe in words how disappointed we are with this hotel.

We are very unhappy with the facilities they advertise lots of things to keep the family entertained but all of them are closed.

Water fumes are closed
Games rooms closed

Kids pool closed for 2 days for cleaning the stones around it while this was happening the mini club house and children’s swing park could not be used as the dust was flying into that area.

As a large family we paid a lot of money.

We have asked numerous people and times to open the fumes with no success.

FOOD

Very poor choice for children it is very poor section although spoken to management about.

We have been served Raw chicken on three different occasions.

We have asked to speak with the general manager a Couple of times to be told that he is busy each time and he will come and find us.

We have booked taxis through the hotel reception and have been over charged on two occasions.

One member of the family have an allergy to cats and have raised this numerous times with the restaurant staff but doesn’t stop them being allowed into the restaurant and jump on top of the tables when we eat and entering the kitchens too.

We have spoken to one of the staff who has been very understanding and responsive on the times if we ask for help he was the restaurants manager Ahmet.

Things we did like were the animation team the tried so hard to help our family enjoy the time we spent in the hotel you could see they wanted to do more but because the hotel was very empty they could not fulfill this but we are very greatful for all there effort they made the time our children spent there happy.

The staffs were lovely as always and always try to get you join in on the games during the day. As for the animation team, they are amazing, friendly and talk to you throughout the day - they range games for all
ages. Also, the rooms may seem a bit out dated but have everything you need; cleaners are very on top of everything if you need anything. Only thing I have a problem with is not having a massive range of food in the evening but it can be understandable as I am only staying before the May half term. Lastly, Ebu from the animation team made my week as he is always trying to make you smile haha. I will be definitely coming back!

We just got back from visiting the garden of sun 🌞 and I'm missing the place so much already. Considering the whole corona this didn't really interfere with us enjoying our stay here. All the workers were so polite and had lots of patience for everyone, they all literally waited on you hand and foot. The receptionist were amazing nothing was a bother and always smiling. Entertainment team made our holiday 10× better we laughed so much with them, they were so energetic amd involved everyone in everything english and turkish was spoken from them. The food was lovely lots of variety and those giving bad reviews about the food just don't have a clue about good tasting turkish food they were probably expecting boring old fish and chips and a bit of bacon, you need to understand its turkey and seriously need to respect there religion and you also get what yiu pay for as the hotel price stay is fairly cheap. So for what we paid id say everthing was spot on 👌
The rules of corona was also well organised.
The bar lady sevgi always had a big smile on her face and made the best drinks. Sevgi remember me? :)) pink pink 😄
Don't be fooled by the bad reviews as I said you pay for what you get and at that price honestly from my heart everything was perfect 👌
Also if you need your hair done or shave ect then go to velat he is your guy.
Yess lots of turkish guests but err hello it is turkey not benidorm and they literally no how to have a good time, what more do you want.
Anyway enough said I will definitely be visiting the garden of sun again. Thankyou all so much 💓

A big thank you to all the staff, a lovely break away.

Food, was something for everyone, very tasty! Bbq guys working hard at lunch and dinner, excellent food safety going on there making sure everything was cooked and delicious.

The bar staff were always so helpful, entertaining and making sure people had what they needed and keeping the pool area clean. Fantastic bar skills and excellent drinks, was a real difference to the bar people in town, almost chalk and cheese, they were so much better and an asset to the hotel.

Al a cart was a real treat, beautiful setting by the pool and you won’t go hungry, so much good food, service was attentive and quick.

Had a a brilliant evening with the celebrity character quiz , everyone from all nationalities could join in together, I wish they would do that more often or something similar, the guys in the animation team would greet everyone in the morning and not stop all day.

The lady in management was excellent, so helpful, we appreciated her coming and having a chat, such a font of knowledge.

The cleaning lady on the 4th floor was so nice, I must give her a mention! I hate getting up early, so left out the do not disturb, but she was happy to sort out things in the room when I bumped into her.

My only thing I would mention, 7pm for dinner is a bit late for me, 5 or 6 pm would be spot on, there are some toilet seats broken by the pool that maintenance could repair quickly as they are and this is just a minor fix (pinched my bum)

But in all we would both definitely return.

teşekkür ederim

We went all inclusive and it most definitely is ! No time in the day you can't eat or drink , they even have a midnight meal .
The staff are amazing the reception team can't do enough for you , my favourite
Damla ⭐ the restaurant manager Mohamed ⭐entertained my granddaughter with magic and paper flowers , the food was delicious at every meal the waiters and bar staff made you feel like you were in a five star ⭐ the pool was huge and there's a children's pool and another pool with slides , spotlessly clean.
The animation team made our holiday Daisy, Joker Alionka and Migueche ⭐ worked so hard to keep children and adults happy , and are talented coaches artists and dancers Alionka is a professional dancer blown away by them , never known such a high level of entertainment in a hotel .
The beach is over the road and the hotel supply free sunbeds and a voucher to eat and drink at the 🐧 penguin bar .
Can't wait to go back .

Don’t listen to all the bad reviews

Sitting around the pool as I wrote this
And how pleasant it is
Just myself around here .

Yes when we arrived there was a lot of Turkish and other nationalities but come a few days later all gone and really quite ..

Walked in room and the first thing I see was the shower and yea thifuht thst looks a bit old and sqanky but it does the job and shower was lovely
Room couldn’t complain sea view
Cleaned every day..

Food yes i get where people say about the Choices etc
But not one has mentione the outside grill in the evening
Cooking fresh meat and fish
And the pizzas oven serving fresh cooked flatbread pizzas
The salad varieties are lovely something I would say for everyone
From stuffed tomatoes to smoked salmon ..
Yea the pre cooked food I get
But everyday fresh vegetables..

Breakfast again I get
But always toast omelettes and omg the pancakes are lovely

Afternoon snacks well
Waffles with chocolate melt in your mouth
Not sure who could complain about them …

Drinks beer is lovely
Pink vodka lovely
What more can you ask for ..

Staff have all been really friendly
Yes they don’t speak much English but never found it an issue ..

The guy on the beach is lovely and makes you feel welcome
And does he best to speak to communicate with you ..

Here with my sister and we can not say
We have had an enjoyable relaxed stay ..

Just wish it didn’t have to end ..

Thank you garden of sun
