We stayed at Puding Suites for six nights in the Millenium suite. There were four of the six suites booked, since this was the end of season. Everything was absolutely wonderful! The room was fantastic, with comfortable beds and enough room to relax and spread out (perfect place to spend the rainy day during our trip). Breakfast was good, with friendly staff and lots of choices to order from. We ate our free dinner at the hotel (booked online) and it was very good (and everything but the wine was free, with no strings attached). Service was impeccable, and the staff was amazing friendly - almost like staying with friends! Some examples of the staff going the extra mile: 1: we bought a bottle of Rake (local liquor) to try, and mentioned this to Onur. Without our asking, he brought ice and glasses to the room so we could enjoy it in the traditional Turkish way. 2: we asked for a restaurant recommendation. Bilge directed us to the Arma Restaurant (where her husband proposed to her). Unbeknownst to us, she also called the hotel after we left and booked a table for us so that they were ready to seat us on the patio when we arrived. 3: we ate dinner at the Patio Restaurant at the Puding Marina (sister hotel). Ece (who is assistant manager of both hotels and we knew from the Puding Suites) came out and greeted us at our table, and recommended which items looked particularly good tonight (she was exactly right - all the choices were great). Ece later came out to make certain we were enjoying the dinner. 4: the maid service was conducted almost invisibly. Even on the day we stayed in the hotel most of the day due to rain (including sitting by the fireplace in the hotel), our room was cleaned without any impact to us. Amazingly considerate!
I also did something I've never done in any hotel - I friended four people from the hotel on Facebook. These people made my stay tremendously pleasant.
Other notes - the staff (except management) will change next year. So, Bilal, Onur, and Bilge will not be there in 2013. I'm sure Ece will have another great team in 2013! Also, if you're driving, it is very difficult to drive in old town Antalya. It took three trips to be able to get to the hotel without making wrong turns.
