“Not as good as anticipated”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

We spent 1 week at the Royal Wings and as the reviews on here were so good we were really looking forward to going. However it was the small things which didn't make it a 5star experience.
The customer service was somewhat lacking and to be honest borderline rude.
I found the staff unhelpful and not particularly bothered in accommodating any of the guests.
The food was the same every night at the buffet restaurant so I would recommend the a la carte options. Tried the Chinese, Sea food and Italian and would recommend all of them.
I agree with some of the earlier reviewers...the decor is dated and needs updating, but this may not bother other people.
The evening entertainment was poor and sometimes I thought inappropriate for the younger children, for example the Comedy night had a 12+ age recommendation!! The magic show is worth watching though.
However it was not all bad.. The pools are fantastic and space for everyone. You do need to get up early to get sun loungers around the pool. My husband and myself took it in turns to wake up at 8am to gets poolside sun loungers . If you wanted to go to the beach then there are plenty of sun loungers there. (The hotel staff put little slips of paper with a note asking you not to reserve beds before 9am but I did not see them actually taking the towels off as they claim to do). The water slides are great fun...try them all. My kids loved them and they were the highlight of the holiday for them. We gave water sports a go and the paragliding was great.
The Spa was relaxing and do recommend it.
The Turkish food tent is amazing and is defiantly worth more than 1 visit.
There is a good selection of food throughout the day so you cannot go hungry. There is something for everyone.
All in all it was a good holiday but would not go back.

I have just stayed at the royal wings hotel Antalya . Date from 28 th July to Thursday the 7th. I would just like to say it was one of the best holidays ever. The hotel facilities and especially the staff were amazing. The animation team were unbelievable. And obviously Alex will have to come in for special mention. I attended the water gym and the 4.30 aerobics virtually every day.
He is very dynamic and funny and possibly slightly camp !
Other animation team I would like to specially mention is Soner and Mert who we're very friendly and kind.
In the dining area I would also like to make a special mention to Etam yuce and Nedret Kurtint. These guys were amazing. Friendly, enthusiastic , courteous and utterly efficient and professional. So much so we were prepared to wait even if a table wasn't ready.

I would in fact say Turkey Is the most friendly destination we have ever stayed at. The people are amazing. Thank you so much for making it one of our best holidays ever.

Kind regards the Whelan family.

Room Tip: Duplex room is excellent for families

My daughter and I (she is 9) visited for a weeks holiday, we were not sure what to expect but boy were we pleasantly surprised! Super complex, excellent food with so many choices, lovely staff and great evening entertainment! As the complex is so large, you never have to Que for anything but don't let the size put you off! We are hard to please, however we would definitely return again!

We stayed at Royal Wings for a week over Easter. We stayed as a family of four in a duplex room with my parents staying in a double room. The rooms were great, well designed and spotlessly clean and well maintained. The duplex room worked very well for a holiday with two teenage boys and gave us all a little privacy. The two bathrooms work well too. The hotel itself is well designed and has a luxury feel. Staff cannot do enough to help and are keen to ensure you have a great time. We visited before summer season began and the outdoor restaurants were not operational, nor the sea pier. It did feel that things were being prepared for busier times which we fully understand but meant we couldn't experience all that is on offer during the summer. Nevertheless, we had a great time. We ate at late breakfast most days which offered great choice, had pancakes in the Turkish tent for lunch (try the cheese, chocolate and sugar ones if you can - all delish) and ate in the main buffet most evenings. We did eat in the Italian and Turkish speciality restaurants, paying extra for the Italian where we had a 9 course meal for 12 euros each. It was lovely and you should go. One time at one restaurant is included. Further visits is extra cost. The pools were very cold at this time of year but we did have fun at the water park. The indoor spa is great and we used the pool here and had a number of massage treatments which are highly recommended. The spa offered a number of deals at this time of year and we took advantage and came home feeling super relaxed. Would we visit again - yes, but during the summer so we could enjoy all the hotel offers.

"Excellent, Clean, Lots of Food and Drink. The hotel is extremely clean like shown in the brochure. The onsite Aqua Park and mini funfair were great for our kids. There is a beach bar and a beach restaraunt (all included) so you don't need to take food or drink to the beach with you. You are also provided with beach towels and pool towels so less luggage to take from the UK. Beach loungers also provided. There are bars, ice-cream bar (only open at certain times), kebab bar, donut/fruit bar (change everyday) around the pool area. There is another hut where two ladies sit and make crepes for you, pizza also available in there. Inside huge grand buffet, separate bakery/cake shop - all included. There is a night restaurant if you get hungry! all inclusive mini bar in your room. Once you get there you can relax and don't have to worry about running high bills or paying for aqua parks or food/drink on the beach etc. There is a nightclub (which we never used because of children) The rooms were very clean and towels were changed everyday. The service with the waiter depends on who you get as this is the case at any hotel, but overall very good. We have also been to the Royal Dragon in Side and found there was more of a spacious beach area and although both are good we personally prefer the Royal Dragon but that's just personal choice. Please NOTE we stayed there in October 2012

From the wonderful lobby in the hotel, the rooms are a superb standard, this hotel ticks every box. Whether it's a quiet holiday or you want to get involved in the activities this hotel will cater for you. The entertainment team work tirelessly to keep you and the kids amused, from early morning to midnight . This is truly all inclusive, the snack bars at lunch time have a wonderful selection made to order, of pizzas, kebabs,sandwiches fruit bar, or sit down waiter service in the restaurants the list is endless, the food is fresh and fantastic choices. With different bars to use over the hotel, with free wi if, You cannot fault the level of service from the staff, who are courteous and only willing to help. Most shows and activities are in English, which considering the diverse cultures here was a real bonus. The waitress around the pool on roller skates is a nice touch....but don't leave your towel unattended before 9am, because they'll lift them, which was quite amusing to watch...
I always think a good measure of a good holiday is whether or not I would go back or not, bearing in mind there are many stunning hotels in lara beach worth trying.... It's Royal Wings for next us next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view, it's worth paying extra when you book it.

Nothing to complain. Even was a lot o families with kids they didn't bother us. Was enough space for everyone. The food was various, for all taste. Good entertainment team and good shows in the evening. The small complain for dj to much house music but I guess this is the trend now. I would go back again certainly
