“Fantastic holiday, brilliant staff, best place for a family”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

We stayed from the 19th September to 4th October and were talking about coming back on the transfer home. The staff are all very friendly and make a real effort to make you feel welcome. The entertainment team were fab as well. The shows were brilliant, always something different every night which the kids loved.
The food was amazing and the weight gain we've all come home with is testament to the standard of meals that you can have. yes you may have to queue for a few minutes for some popular things like omelettes, but so what, you don't have a bus to catch!
The pools are really well thought out with very shallow for babies through to mid pools for older toddlers. We were never bored! The aqua park was amazing with something for everyone, we were there nearly everyday, my youngest son loved the pirate ship and the splash pool area is a fab place for small children.
The lifeguards there are 100% and we are very thankful to the lifeguard that helped me when my eldest son was complaining of a sore ear, he looked him over and advised we see a doctor, which we did, at the hotel. The hotel doctor arranged for my son to be taken to hospital where he spent the night and had a small operation. All the staff that helped us I give my heartfelt thanks to.
The hotel staff work tirelessly to make sure that you have a great holiday. The bad reviews you see on here are the type of people that complain because it rains!!
If you have a family that like water you will not regret coming here!!!!!

This was our first time at this hotel, family of four with a five year old and a 22 month old, and what a fab holiday we had!
The room was very modern and clean and had excellent maid service.
The food halls are very clean, waiting staff are friendly and work very hard.
The choice of food was excellent and the desserts were amazing!!
The entertainment team were faultless and worked really hard.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone with a family!!
We plan to return at some point!!!

Due to some bad reviews on here I was very sceptical about this place however we need not have worried it was great. Travelled on 12th October 2013 with 4 & 6 year old. Had family suite very spacious & clean. Maids came every day unless u put sign on door - fresh towels etc..only gripe on room was air con controlled centrally and had been switched off due to cold evenings previous week. Food was excellent good variety, although some things ade an appearance ever day, my fussy 4 year old had the most varied diet ever! Ice cream at lunch times gorgeous! Restaurants spotless although very busy at peak times. Pool areas very well kept, lifeguards very good, water freezing but it is October! Hotel run kids club with Auntie Sandra and her team was fantastic - my two never been to kids club before but loved it! We all made friends of all nationalities. Kids disco in evening is good fun. Can't comment on other evening entertainment as we were bedded by 10 as so tired out! Beach ok but quite gritty sand - enjoyed pedal boats. Beach bar excellent as is Atrium bar. Wi fi good. Waterpark is great. Fridge in room - put our own milk in it with no prbs. Tea making facilites in room also. Games area in hotel good pool, table tennis, air hockey, bowling, mini golf..some of which you have to pay for but not overpriced. Vast majority of staff excellent - when we complained about our air con we were shown another room but as not in as quiet part if hotel we stayed put. Chinese ala carte is very nice. All manner of shops - no need to leave! Transfers & flights excellent. No one in our family was ill and neither were any of the people we met there. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel and can't wait to go back next year!

Room Tip: Email hotel before you go if u want quiet room - also ask for room with indvdally controlled air con...

Firstly the weather was gorgeous when we arrived! We arrived into Izmir airport about 12.05am. The transfer to our hotel was about an hour and it went quickly on our air conditioned coach.
When we pulled upto the hotel it looked beautiful as all the lights were on for the nighttime. The reception was lovely and light and clean. The hotel reception staff seemed friendly and helpful.
We went straight to our room with our suitcases as we didn't want to wait for them to be taken up although it was there if we needed it.
The room was stunning! Massive comfy bed, a jacuzzi which i used most nights, so relaxing, nice bathroom with power shower, a big mirror by the bed and a cute little balcony area. Everything was lovely and clean and the maid had left a little towel decoration on the bed which was a nice touch. We also had a fridge in our room and we got a free big bottle of water on arrival which is good as drinking out the tap is a big no!
The televison was nice and big and had lots of different channels to choose from we mainly watched Nat Geo Wild & Disney Junior lol yes i am 26! It was nice that we were given nice light dressing gowns to wear also and slippers! The wardrobe was lovely and spacious!
The only problem we had was that the air con which they switch off round about this time of year was off when we arrived so we was absolutely boiling and couldn't sleep very well for a few nights. We got our room changed to a room on a higher floor so we could open the door and window, it feels safer higher up! The guest relation lady was very good at sorting this out for us.
We went down for breakfast in the morning (we were all inclusive so free food & drink!) at the Tropicano Restoran .. wow there is so much food to choose from ! and so much choice. They make fresh omlettes everyday which were very tasty. I really liked the fried tomato with cheese aswell to have on the side delicious!
Everything was fresh and presented so well! The sculptures in the melons that were cut out were fab!
There are 6 pools at this hotel which is great! Very spoilt for choice. We did prefer the adult pool as it was nice and quiet ,, no kids allowed! The other pool nearby had music playing all the time which was probably good for people who like alot of noise and a boogey by the pool ha
The beach was nice, i went running along it and took some pictures. Great view! the water was freezing ha! We sunbathed here for most of the holiday.
At night time they put on a show at the theatre in the hotel which is great for the kids! we watched the chinese circus they had on they were fab!
We usually sat by the main bar in the hotel and we went to the irish bar to watch the England game it was very busy! There is alot of different choices of drinks which is good. It was also nice to sit outside on the balcony part by the main bar at night and see all the hotel lit up. More great views!
It was good that they had a midnight soup on too from 12-1 in the oasis restaurant incase we got a bit peckish while drinking!
We went to the Aqua Fantasy water park! sp many fun slides to go on and we also got some drinks and a waffle by the pool, we also sat at the pool bar which was nice to have a drink and cool off! You do have to pay for everything in the waterpark, but entry is free!
One of the nights we went into Kusadasi to Yucca restaurant. We had someone pick us up and take us back for free. The food was amazing i had an enchilada with chips and garlic bread. I was so full i couldn't finish it all. The entertainment was good to there was an Elvis impersonator which i was thinking would be cheesy as hell but he was brilliant and so entertaining! A really nice man too. Also there was a singer there he was very good called Sercan! he did requests too! The staff were very polite and friendly. We stayed in there all night and drank lots! ha
Some mornings i used the gym which was good, there was quite a few machines, even if they may need a little updating it was good it was there. I also ran on the jogging track i loved that, in the sun, lovely.
One of the days we both had a massage, i had a deep tissue massage and my partner had a back massage. It was so relaxing, the girl really knew what she was doing i felt so relieved after! The spa was beautiful aswell so pretty! We also used the steam room and sauna which made my skin feel lovely! .. There are alot of massages to choose from and they do lots of different treatments!
Our room was cleaned on a daily basis if we needed it, the maid was lovely even though she didn't speak much english she did know the basics. One day she left us a heart towel with real flowers as a decoration on the bed, so cute!
One of the nights we went to the chinese restaurant by the Oasis restaurant, it was a free meal the hotel gave us, it was so delicious, you get a starter, main and desert, it so lovely in there and a great atmosphere. I was very full after.
All in all the hotel was amazing! definitley worth the 5* it has, had such a lovely week! Would definitley return! Got a fabulous tan aswell :)

Room Tip: Ask to be upgraded to a jacuzzi bath room :D! Nice and spacious!

Staff were amazing, food brilliant (really recommend the kebabs :-)) great for kids, waterpark is great for adults and children alike ... We all loved it. Rooms modern and clean. Staff can't do enough to help you. Good food, inclusive alcohol, evening entertainment ... Would love to go back here again when the kids are a bit older to appreciate the water park as much as their parents.
