My wife and have been staying at this resort from 30 July 2013 to 06 August 2013 and these are our impressions as accurate as possible and as unbiased as possible.
First thing that struck us when we arrived was the lobby and entrance area, absolutely dreadful, a few chairs and sofas in kitsch style (golden, Louie of France style), the bellboys and the front desk staff spoke only Turkish or Russian, 1 guy seemed to understand English but I'm not sure since he did not reacted correspondingly. From the lobby to our room, the bellboy took us through a series of corridors to our building (the resort consists of several building with a central main building), the hallway in the building (block D) has the outside temperature and that is boiling hot and dreary. The room, not too small not to large, the minibar (which was supposed to be filled) had only one bottle of beer, the sheets on the bed had two blood stains right in the center, the bathroom tiles had some smudges of what it looked like blood right next to the toilet, the toilet seat was loose and most of all it did not carry the sanitized band on it, the air con unit was blowing hot air and the balcony door did not closed well. We had to made a complain about the air conditioning unit and two tech guys came right away and they had it sorted out in a jiffy, we complained about the minibar as well, they did nothing about it, I had to sneak a bottle of water from the dinning area in order to have something to drink over the night, the minibar was eventually filled the next day. Main restaurant, similar to a factory cafeteria, hot, noisy, smoky, total chaos. We found the beach bar to be more pleasant and we avoided the main restaurant for lunch and had a bite there. The food has an industrial, mass produced character, not too tasty, not too diversified, cheap and of low quality, same goes for the drinks, washed down booze and soft drinks, natural fruit drinks are charged separately. Ice cream service, lousy, well hidden at the secondary pool bar and after queuing more than that ice cream is worth you end up with a lousy ice cream. Pool area and beach, 1st of I would like to tell you that the sea in Kemer is fantastic, water is clear and has just the right temperature, the beach is with gravel and they covered it with construction grade sand (the rough stuff) which they somehow could not keep clean (cigarette buds, napkins all over the place), the pool main pool (advertised as aqua park) has an unfortunate shape and gives the sensation that it is not filled with water and there is a bit of chaos with loud music and kids jumping on your head from the passages above. The slides are operational only a couple of hours each day. Gardens not something I would mention home except of the loud crickets which drove us mad, constant noise 24/7. Entertainment team and entertainment, pretty weak, evening shows (Anatolian Fires and Notredame of Paris) were cute but sort of lame, as for daily activities they are not really that entertaining. Probably a great place to be if you are Russian since 80% of the guests are from Russia. Overall quality of services is low and definitely not at a five star level, I would not recommend this resort as a good holiday destination and definitely won't return and will advise our close ones not to.
