Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 August 2014

I am reviewing a 4 star hotel against other similar hotels I have visited. I am not reviewing my holiday which in all honesty was down to the people we met and not the hotel.
We did not Greg off to the best start with the transfer from Thomas Cook. The rep left after 5 minutes to get another flight. The driver then took us into Antalya to get fuel which put at least 20 minutes onto our journey. Finally when we arrived he dropped us off on the wrong side of a dual carriageway to where the hotel was.
After this things improved. The check In area was small but very pleasant and we were swiftly checked in and taken to our room.
ROOM
Was large but a slightly strange shape which meant the dressing table doubled as a bedside cabinet one side and the other had nothing and was close to one of the double wardrobes. The safe was free. There was a mini bar restocked regularly. Bathroom was fine with only a shower which suited s fine. A small balcony which had a view of the restaurant roof and part of the pool. The maids were brilliant often tidying up our clothes that had been left on the floor. Flat screen TV with a couple of English channels. Hair dryer in the bath room. Pool towels can be exchanged for clean weekly without charge and are in reasonable condition. No complaints from us about the room.
POOL
Limited space due to layout of the hotel. Every two beds had a sunshade. Usual problem with people getting up at stupid o'clock to get their favourite place. There are notices forbidding this but we're never enforced during our stay. However if you were there as a couple you could generally find a couple of beds. The pool is fairly deep so not so good for those who are a bit scared of being out of their depth.
BEACH
About a ten minute walk. Coarse sand to start with and shingle at the waters edge. Wether you wear water shoes is a personal preference,we did and had no issues. Water was quite clear and it shelved quite quickly but you did not fall off a cliff out of you depth. Loads of sun beds with shade revved for pashas princess guests. Also beach bar serving soft drinks,beer,teas and coffee. Lunchtime there was a cut down menu of the main hotel restaurant.
RESTAURANT
This was open air and doubled up as the area used for relaxation in the evening. The food in my opinion was average. There was not a vast choice and all to often was mis labeled. For instance we had steak and onion "pay" three times and each time there was no steak only chicken!! The grill was at the far end of the restaurant and items were freshly cooked. So normally what ever you had was hot but some times you had to wait which meant your warm food was getting cold. You will not get anything approaching a full English breakfast. You can have eggs cooked anyway you want and a large variety of continental breakfast items. Drinks are either self service teas,coffee and juices or alcohol is from the bar. You will not be served any drinks. I am conservative in my meal choices but managed to find something to eat for the entire two weeks.
BAR
There is only one bar in the hotel opened for 12 hours,11am to 11pm. I only drink beer or diet coke both of which were fine. I am told by others who we made friends with that most of the "local" spirits were fine to drink. I don't think they were watered down because the people we socialised with all managed to get happy frequently.
ENTERTAINMENT
Enis and as his aides provided the usual daytime activities of water aerobics,water polo,water volleyball,darts and boules. They never varied whilst I was there. They did not badger you to join in merely giving the option to do so. The evening entertainment well at times it was so poor that it was hilarious. They are great personalities trying to entertain us on a very small budget but they are not gifted entertainers by a long chalk.
THE AREA
This is a mainly Russian area. The local shops price everything in DOLLARS so if you have any take them with you. They do take lira,euro and pounds but be aware of the exchange rate. If you book a trip with a local agency chances are you will be the ONLY Brits on the trip the rest will be Russians. Leon's in Kemer is worth a shout for a nice steak speak to the rep who will book a table and you will be picked and returned for free. The trip there was in a lovely air condition Mercedes people carrier on the main roads. The trip back was in a beat up Peugeot 207 with so many warning lights on the dash I thought it was Xmas,and he went the back roads whilst talking on the phone on the wrong side of the road.
GENERAL
This is adults only for the uk so there may be some children. I thought the hotel was excellent value for money. A lot has been said about the staff,they are indeed excellent BUT so are the staff in virtually every hotel I have been to in turkey. We had an excellent holiday and made some good friends at the newbies table,sue&john and dave & jan. Usual questions would I recommend it? Answer yes. Would I go back? Probably not because we met a lot of people who made our holiday and we would always compare it.

It has been a week now since we returned from two weeks of absolute bliss at Pashas Princess. A week of recalled memories of one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. I loved the fact it was adult only especially when your partner is a teacher. The staff were excellent and the food, delicious, plentiful and varied.

Our first week was spent at the pool. I really enjoyed the water aerobics at 11.30 every morning. The second week we enjoyed the Hotel's private beach where you could enjoy all the treats served at the pool but with the addition of a cooling sea breeze.

The location of the hotel was pretty. Uh perfect with an ATM literally at the front gate and a convenience shop 30 meters from the front gate.

What currency to take is always a challenge. The shop keepers preference went like this 1. US Dollars,2. Euros, 3. Turkish Lira and finally 4.Sterling. The ATM would dispense Dollars Euros and Lira.

To our new friends Eddie, Shaz, Stefan, Lisa, Keith, Andy and Pam thank you for making our time so much more enjoyable.

After hearing so many good things about Leon's restaurant in Kemer we gave it a go and let me tell you we were not disappointed. The food and service was terrific and the impromptu entertainment by the staff made the night one to remember.

A special thanks to Metin at Pashas Princess for his unceasing efforts to ensure that everyone enjoyed themselves.

Just one suggestion if I may be so bold. The installation of several ceiling fans in the bar/lounge area.

Thank you Pashas Princess for a fantastic holiday. We would definitely go back.

My husand, Eddie and I came back from another two week holiday at the Pashas on 10 August.
Honestly the title says it all. This hotel has everything we need for a relaxing break. Every area of the hotel is kept spotless and the staff work really hard to keep it this way so well done to all. It was lovely to see that the staff who were there last year even remembered us. We stayed in room 120 which looked over the pool area. Cleaned every day, fresh towels and bedding daily and beautiful arrangement of flower petals etc arranged on the bed on occasions. Hubby broke the shower head the first day and it was fixed shortly after. No problem. Food as last year was fresh and plentiful, enough for even the pickiest. As with all foreign holidays you will hear the same old complaints, "no fry ups, not the same as home" etc - dont pay any attention. Would be better still if they booked a holiday at home, save us happy holiday makers the earache of listening !!!! In saying that we met some lovely people, hi Andrea and family, Helen, Spencer and Adella. This hotel has everything you need for a relaxing holiday so give it a go.

This is the second time my wife and I have visited this hotel and the standards were as good as before. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean with large rooms with towels and linen changed on a daily basis. Please ignore the negative food reviews as there is a variety of food on offer all well cooked and hot. Try the pancakes for breakfast!
Staff are exceptional. Special mention to Yehmet who always had a smile on his face especially when trying to teach my wife Turkish!
The beach is about a 5 minute walk away and I would suggest you purchase some beach shoes as it is gritty rather than sandy.
If you want a meal or a drink outside the hotel then I would recommend you visit CiCi's located less than a two minute walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 106 which faced onto the swimming pool.

My husband, 17 year old son and I visited this hotel for 2 weeks from 26th July and I can honestly say it was perfect.
The hotel is spotless, the pool, the rooms, the restaurant, the bar and reception are kept scrupulously clean at all times. The staff work really hard to ensure guests are happy. Rooms are spacious with air conditioning, a free safe, plenty of shelves and hanging space, a modern TV, a fridge which is topped up daily with free soft drinks and water, a kettle, a decent size bathroom and good hair drier in the bathroom. The air con will switch itself off if you open the windows or balcony doors – a sensible, environmentally friendly policy.
We stayed in room 104 which is directly above Reception so enabled us to access the free Wi-Fi from our room. We also had a pool view but the rooms facing the pool only get a few hours of sun on the balcony. I believe the rooms facing the front of the hotel had more sun and also had the view of the mountains which are quite spectacular. Whichever room you have I am sure you will be happy!
The food is traditional Turkish fair with a huge variety of other dishes too. Breakfast is a choice of cereal, eggs of all types, omelette, cold meats and cheeses, toast, pancakes, fruit and a selection of hot dishes. Lunch is a huge variety of salads and warm dishes and dinner is a similar range of salads and hot meals. Deserts are delicious and there is always a huge range to choose from plus fruit as a healthy option. There is always something to choose for even the fussiest of eaters – but – if you are looking for English food then you may be disappointed – this is Turkey so don’t expect a British fry up – but there are always chips available!
The pool is deep and big enough for the number of guests in the hotel. There is a small “Jacuzzi” area where you can sit and enjoy the bubbles and a small shallow separate pool to sit and read a book. Floats and air beds are provided too. There are plenty of sun beds and sun umbrellas around the pool. In the afternoon the waiters bring cold flannels and fruit, or ice cream – very refreshing!
The beach is around a 5-7 minute walk from the main hotel. There are plenty of beds and umbrellas here too, the beach bar serves a smaller selection at lunch than the hotel but it is still good. There are toilets and a shower at the beach. It would be a good idea to take flip flops as there are more pebbles than sand at the water’s edge and the sand further up the beach tends to get very hot! The sea was clean and calm but it does get deep quickly so be careful when swimming out from the beach as you may find yourself quickly out of your depth.
The hotel provides pool/beach towels so no need to take your own.
On the first night you are invited to sit on the “welcome” table, these are nicely made up tables set aside for new arrivals. Initially, I wasn’t too keen on this idea but enjoyed the evening and got to know the people who had just arrived and we continued to chat and socialise with them through the holiday. On the last night you are invited to sit on the leavers table, a specially decorated table set at the poolside, another nice touch.
Eniz the activities manager works hard to put on shows, quizzes and games. If he had more help there would be a more varied choice but that said Eniz puts on water aerobics, water polo and darts at the hotel and volley ball at the beach as well as most of the evening entertainment.
There are a number of small shops around the hotel selling all the usual gifts; there is a chemist almost next door and a number of other local shops selling a range of products. Worth a walk around as the prices are reasonable and the goods are varied. There is not much else in the vicinity though.
The market in Kemmer is held on a Tuesday and the local bus stops right outside the hotel. A one way ticket costs 3.5 Lira (just over £1) and you pay when you get off the bus! It can get very hot at the market so I would recommend going around 4pm when it is less busy and much cooler.
A trip in the cable car is well worth the cost, and the view from the top (if you are lucky enough to not have too much cloud) was spectacular.
I don’t have a bad thing to say about this hotel.

Room Tip: Room 104 was above reception so we could access Wi-fi in the room, usually only available in recept...
