“Very nice family holiday”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

Spent almost two weeks in September 2013 with wife and two kids 5 and 1.5
It was our first Club Med experience. We had very high anticipation based on a number of recommendations from friends and it has not been deceived. We really loved to be there.
Stayed in Hotel building in two connected Club rooms with mountain view.
Positive:
- general service level is much more higher than in other all-inclusive hotels in Turkey we ever been before;
- friendliness of all staff and G.O. (sports and animation team)
- availability of free lessons in all sport activities (tennis, sailing, windsurf, etc.)
Negative:
- limited animation in Russian (esp. in mini-club). If your kid doesn't understand/speak French/English it will be hard for him/her actively participate in.

Room Tip: Rooms in Hotel with mountain view seems to be quieter than sea view ones

I spent the first week of September in Palmyie with my husband and my 3 kids (14, 12 & 8).
This was my first experience in the Club Med with my family and it was a huge sucess among all of us. The formula is perfect for a family with kids, specially teenagers.
The all Club works perfectly because Raphy, the Club Manager, gathered a perfect team of GO's and GE's.
The activities are very diverse, specially the water sports (sailing, kayak, snorkelling, water ski and wakeboard). A special note to Guillaume and Valentine who were great with us and taught us how to wakeboard.
The Passworld (the teenagers club) is also a great sucess, since the GO's (Alban and Sonia) are amazing with kids, and so enthusiastic with them that they soon rather be with Passworld than with the parents!
Another popular activity is the Trapeze. Aintoine is another great GO with the kids.
The quality of the food is also very good and the buffets very diverse.
We stayed at the Villagio, which is the part with 2 store buildings surrunded with lush gardens. The family bungallow is ok, but for a family of 5 , only 1 bathroom is not enough. The bungallows need a refreshment (the bathroom) and the air conditioning in the second floor works deficiently.
The nigjt activities and the shows are so well prepared, that we forget that they are preformed by the GO's and not professional singers and dancers.

If ou are planning a family vacation, this is it. You have found the perfect choice!

Spent last week of August adn first week of September 2013 with 3 kids, 11,9 & 5. The younger 2 loved kids club esp our 5yo daughter. The GO's in her club were fantastic - a big thankyou to Kim and all who helped her have such great days. We were staying in a ground floor family room in the villagio (117), about as far away from the entertainment as possible. We slept very well with the ac droning out what tiny noise could otherwise be heard. The beds are a little ghard but became used to them after a week. The staff were all friendly and excellent, great sailing, great snorkelling off the piers, amazing trapeze, great pools and lots of friends for the kids to play with. Would definitely go again.

We wanted an all inclusive Hotel - and returned to Palmiye after 14 years, now with grownup kids of 21 and 18; we met a number of mutual English friends by chance and all the children were out at the beach bar club till 2-3 am each day.
This hotel, inside its secure perimeter, really does provide all a family could demand; it would take someone pretty picky to be unable to find an excellent breakfast, lunch, and dinner from the wide variety of choices; each meal had fresh veg, fruit, salads, grilled meats, juices etc.
We stayed in the Villagio rooms, in the 216's, which were well away from the music at night (till 11pm) and next to the Tennis, Football, Archery fields. Airconditioner was a bit squeaky ( almost a complaint there!) but it kept the room cool; it had suitable amenities and was big enough; we weren't there daytime so no problems.
The new Adult Zen pool past the hotel is an excellent addition - all in black tile, infinity style, lots of loungers of different types around the pool and looking onto the beach (most booked by 9am though); has its own bar too. No ambient music either! And no-one under 18!
All-inclusive really was - local spirits like Gin, Vodka and Raki were quite satisfactory, plus draft Tuborg and Carlsberg. Rarely any real wait either; good evening nibbles from 7pm in bar locations.
We did skiing, tennis, archery, team football, beach volleyball, bocce ball and still put on 2kg each!
The GO organisation went smoothly - all took time to say hello ( or mostly bonjour), and sat down at spare chairs during meals. Most are French but we also met a couple from Senegal and some Turkish locals. Special thanks to Aurelie at Tennis and Florent & Ahmat at Archery.
The hotel was full for the most part but was never too crowded, tho' we did avoid the main family pool which was full of yelling kids.

Room Tip: Those in the teens (113, 216 etc) are furthest from the auditorium; 400's and 500's are near...

This was our first experience of Club Med and we had an absolutely fantastic time! Still wishing we were there. We went with our children (15 and 9) and our daughters friend (also 15). They didn't join any of the clubs mainly because the majority of the children were French. But they didn't miss out. Our son met friends around the pools and we hardly saw him and the girls joined in alot of the fun and games around the villagio pool. The watersports were great and tennis and lots of other activities for all.

Considering the hotel was full, it never felt horrendous. You could always get a sunbed (we were mainly around the hotel pool) and there were lots of available beds on the beach. We stayed in the front of the Hotel which worked well. I think its probably the quietest side. The only downside is that the showers are very weak.

The shows were brilliant - very professional. The GO's made the holiday though. They always had a smile (considering they get little sleep) and made you feel welcome. Our special thanks to Antoine (Circus) - he is a lovely man with a lovely heart, full of life and always smiling. Alban (Manager of Passworld) - again a lovely person with lots of energy, very helpful and great fun. Laurent (water skiing) - he met us at the airport and instantly made us feel welcome with a good personality and great at teaching waterskiing. Kevin and Faustine (Tennis) - both great personalities and good fun. They were all in the shows and at the clubs afterwards - I don't know how they do it. We miss them all.

The chefs and waiters were also very friendly and helpful especially Sergad and Haman. The barmen around the Hotel pool bar were great too. Food was wonderful and they do different themes each night. White night is very special - the organisation is excellent.

We quite liked the fact that it was mainly French - but everyone speaks English. Wondering when we can return!

We would definitely recommend this resort as its good for fun and relaxation.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the Hotel are quieter.

This is was my first time to club med with my family. The all inclusive formula is great. the pools are always clean, the beach is so good. There were almost 1600 people but u don't feel it as the club so big. The a la carte restaurant is a must try at least once. We mostly spent our time at the piscine zen, its relaxing. You never get bored. There are many sports, activities and events to do and attend. Parasailing is for extra cost but worth doing. As a introductory idea to club med, it is nice to start with Palmiye.

Room Tip: Bungalows are located in a big garden, but the hotel rooms are more modern.

Spent last weeks of August 2013 there with a toddler and the experience was flawless. It is a beautiful place, the rooms in the hotel are great (I have not seen the ones from the villagio so I am commenting only on the hotel room) and very very clean. The mountains behind are beautiful, it is very green (I expected only rocks) and the gardens are filled with palm trees, olives trees and all kinds of flowers. The beach is great as well. Even though it not a sandy beach but little rocks, it is great. The food is as usual very good like in most club meds but I have never seen kitchens which are so clean. The waiters are extremely kind and very effective.
All in all, I have spent very good time there and I would recommend it as one of the best club meds I have visited.
