We visited the resort in June 2013.
The hotel was nice, the food was in the main lovely apart from the awful coffee but I’ve been visiting Turkey for over 23 years and they have never been able to make a good coffee. Top tip just take the nescafe out of the room to have with your breakfast or take your own from home.
The rooms were dated but they were kept very clean, had a TV with couple of English channels, air conditioning and plenty of hot water, all you need really.
The pool facilities were great, our girls 7 & 4 loved it. The slide areas have time restrictions 10-12 2-4 that clash with the kids club so not ideal.
The entertainment was brilliant the best I have ever seen at a hotel they got this spot on super…
There were a few things that let the holiday down.
The rude Russians who felt the need to over fill their plates and then leave it. One Russian knocked my daughter off her feet by pushing past her to get in the lift first. I know it is a cultural difference but it gets very tedious after a while, if you are the type of person who has a short fuse avoid the hotel like the plague.
Some of the serving staff were unhelpful, the bar staff around the pool weren’t very friendly and the young bread oven baker was very rude. But saying that there were some lovely staff too.
The cost of goods for sale in the hotel were very expensive, everything was in Euro’s, save your pennies and take a short bus ride for about 80p to the shopping malls about 5 minutes away where you can find the same things for a ¼ of the price.
Some of the kids’ activities were not included in the price, the fun fair, the bowling, games room, art area, zorbing etc. These activities were very pricey.
The ice cream is hidden and limited so once it has gone it has gone and only available at 2.30pm.
If you are easy going this is the resort for you… If you get easily wound up give it a miss and book a UK exclusive hotel without the hidden extras and restrictions.
