We stayed one week at Sensimar Side Resort and Spa from 9th of July. We were very pleased to observe the very clean and tidy resort. We were greeted with a glass of wine when filling out the forms at our late arrival, which we though was a nice gesture.
The staff was very friendly and the room were quite spacious, although we had a regular double room. The best amenities were a big king size bed, LCD TV (mostly German channels though), bathrobes, fresh fruit when arriving, a mini bar and an in-room-safe. The hotel is very modern and the toilet and shower had only glass doors dividing it from the rest of the room. The housekeeping was very good, always clean towels and we had the impression that the room was clean most of the time. The room was on second floor, but still we had problems with ants a couple of days. Really small ants, about an hundred of them were coming in from the hallway. They gathered into a group on the floor just inside of the door, but some went into the shower and further inside the room. It was really disgusting.
The management was obviously aware of this problem since they had the hotel completely gassed the next day.
The food was good and it was plenty of it. They arranged theme nights which was very nice and well organized. In the restaurant there were several waiters, but it seemed so ineffective, especially the serving of the drinks. The first days we didn’t tip very much, which resulted that we only got one glass of wine. But after we started to tip them, the glasses were never empty and we were asked frequently if it was something they could help us with. The bars had standard all inclusive drinks and wine with local brands. Other drinks with regular brands were available for an extra cost.
The sun beds on the beach were provided with a mattress and they were quite comfortable. Plenty of water and drinks at the beach bar, they also served light meals.
It was an adult atmosphere everywhere, we only observed a couple of kids. In the evening the hotel was very quiet, and the entertainment and bar closed early. So if you are looking for a party place, this is not it.
We enjoyed our holiday, but would we go back to Side? We doubt it. There are so many other places in the same price range that we want to visit.
