Stayed for a week at Sentido Golden Bay, Turkler as a couple. Booked it last minute through Thomas Cook. The Thomas Cook Airlines flight was horrific as it was cramped and a night flight so arrived in turkey at 4am.
The hotel on the other hand was very good. Its a 4 star adult only full inclusive. The hotel is small only 72 rooms and has a lovely feel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and understood enough English to get by.
It is located at the edge of the bay next to its sister hotel sentido Gold Island. As there is no through traffic except to the hotel its very quiet. It has its own beach too, I dont think its exclusive to the hotel but there is no reason for non residents to use it.
We stayed in room 503 (top floor with a good view of sea/ beach) it has a Jacuzzi and nice balcony. Room was very clean and a good size.
The pool area is lovely and clean, there is a pool bar that does snacks. the snacks would be the only negative of the place as the quality of food was average.
Restaurant: only one restaurant which was on the second floor with a segregated area for the a la carte (which you can use for free once per your stay) the restaurant was very clean with a good selection of foods to satisfy.
The Golden Bay is very quiet hotel not really suited for young groups. There is no evening entertainment at this hotel but the reception bar is lovely and open 24/7 and you can take drinks back to your room.
For evening entertainment you walk 3 minutes up the road to Golden Island. This is a much larger hotel for families although they dont actually get many there.
you also have full use of the all inclusive at this hotel too 24/7 except the main restaurant. the pool area is much livelier that at Golden Bay.
There is also a reasonably priced Turkish Bath at the Island. this I would recommend and Maistro Ali (masseur/ eurpean weight lifting champion) is very good if you want a decent massage.
The resort as a whole seems pleasant and fairly typical of a turkish town. I wouldn't recommend Turkler as a resort suitable for young groups but more couples and families.
I would consider going back there again and I would definitely stay at another Sentido brand hotel as their standards are high.
