“A real Gem”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Visited for 10 days in June a party of six with ages ranging from 12 to 72.

The Otium actually fulfilled all our needs offering plenty of activities for the youngsters whilst providing plenty of peace and quiet for the "old folk"

THE PROS.
Reception. Extremely friendly and efficient dealing with any questions very quickly.

Rooms. Had everything needed for a comfortable holiday. Never any problems with water pressure for the shower and even had a Jacuzzi style bath which my grand daughter really enjoyed. Room kept clean by cheerful and friendly staff.

Dining. Once again staff excellent. Tables cleared quickly . Food really good with a wide range of food at all meals . One of the best buffets I have had on holiday and it was very nice that it was all kept at a good temperature.
We dined one evening in the Italian a la carte and this was well worth doing. Four courses with an excellent choice. Besides the buffet restaurant food was available during the day at the pool bar and the beach bar. This comprised the usual salad chips and a variety of pizza burgers kebabs etc.

Pools and Beach. Three pools on the complex(one adult only and strictly observed) and also two pools for the little tots. All well maintained and surrounded by plentiful sun beds and awnings. The beach area also has a large number of sunbeds and plenty of shade

Bars.First all inclusive I have been to where their is virtually no queuing for drinks. Staff friendly and efficient. A major plus was that there were a number of self service tea coffee and soft drink areas around the complex which obviously helped the bar service. My favourite bar was in the lobby which had a large conservatory area with comfortable seating.

Entertainment. Exceptional the team works 24/7 to provide activities The only time we saw the children was at meal time they had something to do from 10.00 in the morning till 10.00 in the evening.

CONS.
There are really none but on a purely personal note I did miss having ice cream after my evening meal. Surprisingly ice cream was only available twice during our stay.

We travelled with Cosmos and Monarch and I was really impressed with the service. The local rep. was pleasant and helpful and not the least pushy over excursions. We did take two trips one to Alanya and another a Boat trip.. Both very interesting with excellent English speaking guides.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to either couples or families there really is something for everyone.

Thanks again Otium Club for many happy memories.

Room Tip: Look for room facing the pool area

Had a ten night stay here at the beginning of June. There were six in our party, four adults and two kids aged 12 and 13.

Everyone had a great time. The hotel was very clean and I must say the staff in all areas were excellent, always very polite and friendly and also extremely efficient. No matter what time of day we rarely had to wait to get drinks.

The food had more than enough variety and was generally kept at good temperatures. There were usually several meat, fish and vegetable dishes.

The kids were always occupied, be it either in the pools, on the water slides or in the teen club. The entertainment team worked tirelessly with several activities throughout the day and night for kids (and adults).

It was only a short pleasant stroll to get to the beach area, where drinks and food were also available for those wishing to stay all day.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel....especially to those travelling with children

Thank you Otium Eco Club for a great holiday.

Plus:
- great activities during the day for all ages
- loads of options for kids, restaurant, soft play, swimming, large outdoor play park
- food was decent and a good variety
- very close to beach (walking) or a bus for lazy people!
- all inclusive beach facilities were great
- evening shows were very good

Negatives
- rooms could have been a bit more modern
- having to pay for electric cars

Overall a great holiday, we would go back for sure.

Room Tip: We took a room with sliding doors to kids sofa bed, worked very well

My friend and I did a last minute booking to this hotel and on arrival were given a lovely light room with great views over the garden. All the staff were friendly, helpful and always smiling. The room was sparkling clean and the gardens were beautifully tended. To get to the beach you can walk for about 6-10 mins beside the lake or there are frequent minibuses available at the front of the hotel. There were lots of activities for people to take part in, but as we were just there to relax in the sunshine we spent most of the time sunbathing and swimming in the adult-only pool. A few ignorant holidaymakers spoiled the peace a little by being a bit loud or letting their kids come to the "relax pool" but the staff soon sorted that out and peace returned. Foodwise there was plenty of it and good choices for everyone at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fabulous choice of fresh salads with each meal. Plenty of meat, pasta, rice, vegetable dishes and lots of dessert choices too. The all-inclusive package was very very good value and the drinks were also good quality and always served with a smile. I would definitely recommend this hotel to families with children as there is so much for them to do. There is a spa at the hotel so it is a good place for pampering if you're not on a budget. The night time entertainment was not brilliant but we didn't go there for that so it was not a problem for us. When we were there (Easter time) there were very few English families but lots of other nationalities predominantly Russians, French, Belgians and Germans so nice if you want to get away from the UK but not if you want to meet lots of Brits abroad. We ate slightly later at the restaurant to avoid the early part of dinner which was overrun with kids doing whatever they liked with hardly any supervision from their parents. So, thank you everyone at Eco Club Side for making our holiday a wonderful experience and giving us such a warm, friendly welcome. I'm sure we'll be back again.

Room Tip: We were in the main block above reception. Good location for the rooms.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage daughters stayed in August 2013. I have to say that this was one of the best holidays we have been on. The entertainment team could not do enough for you. Yes they did try to get you involved but did leave you alone if need be. There were always sunbeds available though their policing of towels being left out was sporadic and caused a few issues especially as there were always plenty around so you didnt really need to leave them there. The beds have plenty of shade so if you like laying out all day you would need to find a specific spot around the pool or go to the beach, etc. The food was also of good quality. We also met with some people from Cyprus from the previous year that decided stay at the same place- wow!

Room Tip: Get involved with the activities and you will really enjoy yourself!
