Returned home on 23rd Aug. from a 2 week stay in Sunlight Gardens we are a family of 4. Upon arrival we had traditional Turkish breakfast left in the fridge with bottled water. The 2 bed apart. were great , 2 balconies , spacious , very clean , hot water our only bugbear was the aircon. These are advertised as 'air-conditioned 2 bedded apartments' They are not ! the kitchenette/living area is airconditioned , it does not touch the bedrooms at all , I did have a word with reception , someone did come and tamper then left a spoon in the slot (this left the aircon on) an hour later a fan arrived , this did make a slight difference in the childrens bedroom although we did have to soak towels in cold water squeeze the excess to lay over ourselves to cool us down to enable us to get to sleep UNTIL 6.30AM when the alarm goes off to get up to go put your towels on the sunbeds !!!!!! Cos if you don't you had no chance !!!! This could be sorted with the hotel buying more beds there was plenty of room, if the hotel had more beds it would fill the slippy floor up and maybe stop the daily falls !
This hotel is really Full Board with a few drinks thrown in. You must eat at the designated times or you do without. Not all drinks included Big slush machines on display but you have to pay,
The kitchen,waiters,bar and maids work amazingly hard. Otto and the girls try hard too. Antony at the shop was lovely. My husband had a few shaves at the hotel he throughly enjoyed these, the lads in there are very entertaining. I had a pedicure in there too, the girl was very thorough I would definatly recommend as a treat.
Overall we did enjoy our stay here, but I would not return until I knew that management had spent some money on the place. Loved the size of the apartments, the balconies , the staff , the location is good too.
Things just need tweeking. . . . . . . . . More beds, All Inclusive = All Inclusive ! , Enforce the No towels on sunbeds before 8am rule. Plus lastly the silly rule of 1 drink per person after 10.30pm !!! yet at 10.25pm a 8yr old can go for 2 halves of lager for the parents !?!
