Never been to Turkey before and took a chance last minute with this new hotel to Thomsons (no reviews on Trip Advisor). Overall it was excellent including the weather.
Room large and modern and very clean, the bed and pillows were the best I have experienced -even more comfortable than my ones at home. The bathroom set up was a bit unusual at first but really practical and had everything you would want. Free safe and topped up mini bar.
Hotel facilities, grounds and pool were lovely. Kept immaculate and not busy. Lots of lovely areas to sunbath with plenty of shade if needed.
There is a river close to the hotel and my husband enjoyed a couple of sessions fishing (he had taken his rod ).
There is a new prom about a mile long in front of the hotel - great for a stroll.
The beach and sea are superb. We walked along the beach to Side, then picked up another mile long prom.
Side is a lovely little town with lots of history.
The area around the hotel is fairly quiet, just other AI hotels but all fairly new and the area has an upmarket feel about it.
Staff in hotel could not be faulted. Special mention to Kamil and Osman and rep Faye.
Good value for money as we got a late deal and compared to the euro zone now.
None! The food was good but not as excellent as some AIs we have been to - but this is being picky eg no bacon at breakfast and lots of chicken at dinner....could have been more variety with the fresh meat cooking.
Nearly all the guests were German with a few Russian but very nice on the whole. Most of the staff speak German and only a little English.
We arrived at midnight, the only ones checking in and there was a hold up for about an hour. Don't know why, just kept being reassured it would be ok and offered food and drinks in the meantime.
Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel and would go back.
