“Splendid hotel”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Stayed in a family suite last week with 2 children. This is a perfect hotel close to Side (20 minutes walk on the beach).

+
* Great food
* Heated pool
* Fantastic children's club (Mima Club (the best ever))
* Very, very spacious room (pick the family suite if possible)
* Super clean

-
* Language issues, although I speak Dutch, French, German and English we still had some communication issues in the restaurants & hairdresser & security ...
* Minor safety issues; some trees are surrounded by big holes (quite dangerous for small kids)
* Room service should be included for suites

We (2 adults, one 9yr old) stayed at Ali Bey for 1 week in July 2013, the place is fantastic, the rooms are very spacious and beautifully done. The food is amazing, the choice and the presentation is outstanding, the desserts you just can't get enough of. The surroundings were very clean and well kept. We spent most of our time at the Aqua Park, which our 9yr old thoroughly enjoyed, while we enjoyed the cocktails. The beach was beautiful. We found all staff very polite and courtious. The night time shows are brilliant, although not all in English but we really enjoyed the ones that were. The only down side was that there was no childrens buffet in 2013, and we all know how fussy kids are! BUT for 2014 they are putting a childrens buffet in the main restaurent. Yippee. Can't say enough about Ali Bey, would definately recommend it, hence we are returning again in June 2014 and we never go to the same place twice, enough said!!!
(P.S take bigger clothes for the way home, you'll need them)

Well better late than never... This review dates from our stay as a family of 4 ( 2 adults, 2 kids, aged 6 and 8) for 2 weeks at the end of June, beginning of July 2013. First of all, this is an absolutely amazing resort, sooo beautiful and luxurious !! Pure class !! Everything from arrival to departure was outstanding!
Check-in : was very smooth and quick and efficient, we were offered a glass of bubbly which is always a great welcome after travelling 4 hours on a plane and 50 min in a taxi. We were also graciously offered an upgrade which was greatly appreciated. Thanks to Willy !!
Rooms : one word : STUNNING !! 10 mins after being brought to our room by golf buggy we were welcomed by a bottle of champagne and a platter of fresh fruit !
Pools : great !! fantastic slides for young and old under the ever watchfull eyes of 2 lifeguards. Waiters coming around to bring you drinks and everyday at around 14h iced-scented towels were brought to you at the pool to cool you down. This was definitely a big favourite with the guests!
Food : awesome !! and a disaster for your waistline !! themed nights, lots of variety, loads of fresh fruits and salads, fresh grilled fish, etc.... Fresh sushi made everyday in front of you.
Kids animation : very nice accomodation for the kids club and very friendly staff, they had fun activities and the staff seemed very keen on the job. However, eventhough our kids are bilingual ( Enlish - Dutch) and have a fair knowledge of French, there were communications problems. Which is the only smallest negative in this resort, overall understanding of English is quite limited, same with French, most used languages seemed to be German and Turkish. It was a pity however, because the staff really bent over backwards to help you and you could see all the willingness in the world but not able to communicate, what a shame !! Still this is only the slightest remark on the hotel.
Shows : very very high quality with shows that were also geared towards the children : the Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Michael Jackson show, Tarzan, etc...
Overall : a really high class resort with care for every detail, also very kids orientated so an absolute must for families. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody and would love to go back again.

We wanted a very relaxing holiday for adults and that is what we got. The room was wonderful and the food was absolutely moreish. We loved everything about this hotel especially the resident cats!
Our first night was 'gala night' but as we had just arrived we didn't know what it was! The man on reception said it was in the main restaurant but it was outside so we missed it! We had 2 turkish bath experiences in the spa which were excellent.
Will be going back.

We have just returned from Ali Bey after a 10 night stay and really enjoyed it. I spend quite a lot of time looking into the various hotels in Side, and ended up here. We were not disappointed!

First up, on arrival we were greeted and given a welcome drink which is a nice touch after an hour in a taxi. The reception staff were great and explained everything. The reception itself is very nice. Then we got a shuttle round to our room in block 1, which was close to reception but furthest from the beach/restaurant etc. We actually enjoyed the walk back and fourth.

Hotel Grounds - Quite possibly the cleanest hotel we've ever been in, the staff work non stop at cleaning and tidying up everywhere. They are like robots! The grounds are beautiful, my only criticism would be they were very dark at nights, only lit by little lights

Hotel Room - Again spotlessly clean, the maids work very hard. We had a standard room and found it almost perfect. There is plenty of storage (plus point with the better half!) and lots of power points which hotels dont normally have. Shower and bath great. However the room was let down by the tea and coffee facilities. For a 5* hotel they are really unacceptable. No milk, just some powder creamer stuff, we asked for fresh milk for a tea but never got it. Considering there is a fridge in room, a small milk carton can't be too difficult to include. Most hotels of this standard have a good coffee machine aswell, Nespresso etc. The restocked mini bar is a great idea though! Bed was comfy, but not the best we've been in. Another point to note is the walls are very thin. You will hear your next door neighbours talking, babies crying, or in our case some singing!

Restaurant - Moving on from the coffee moan, it was made up for here with the bean to cup coffee machine which was a nice surprise! The food at this hotel is absolutely outstanding, there is so much choice at all meal times, and beautifully presented. The live cooking stations are great for getting a fresh steak or lamb kebab etc. We didn't have much bother getting a table for the two of us, but appreciate that we were deliberately going to the restaurant towards the end of meal times..

Beach - We spent every day at the beach and it was great. The loungers are rearranged every night, the sand is all smoothed out which must take ages! There is plenty space between each set as well so you are not crammed in like sardines. Fantastic. One thing we felt would really add to the beach would be either a drinks service (like the pool gets) or even a small fridge/freezer station with drinks/ice creams. Minor point really. It was cooler at the beach due to the breeze but we prefer that.

Bars - Drinks choice is good, not great. There are various cocktails on choice but being honest, they are made up far too strong, to the point of almost being neat alcohol. Shouldn't complain really, but they are pretty much undrinkable. However the non-alco cocktails are great, and the beer on tap etc is all fine. No cider though! We had lunch a couple of times at the beach bar and the choice is pretty good, burgers, toasties, salads, the usual. Staff here were superb. They were working very hard.

Coffee House - Lovely, the tall young lady was probably the number one member of staff for us (sorry can't remember her name!) nothing was too much hassle. Nice coffees and loads of cakes!

Pool - Didn't lie by the pool once, but it looked very busy whenever we passed. The bar here we found to be a bit more busy.

Entertainment - The entertainment team are superb, they put loads of effort into the routines at night and its a great way to relax after your dinner. The Michael Jackson show, Lion King and Spirit of Anatolia were excellent. Bit chilly sitting out at this time of year though at 10pm at night! There was plenty going on during the day as well like volleyball, football, kids stuff etc which was all good to see.

Spa - We only used the sauna a few times, which was lovely. Really great set up. We intended on using the gym but never went. We did use the Tennis court once which was 10 Euros for the hour, and 8 Euros for the equipment. We felt the court should be free really, as they were empty most of the time. Quite expensive if you want to play every day!

Little Touches - There are lots of little things during the days that add to the experience here. Frozen towels on the beach in the afternoon are ace. Fresh waffles, pancakes, crepes, watermelon etc at various times are all great ideas as well. You will never go hungry at Ali Bey thats for sure!

Overall - Thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were great overall, and the cleanliness is outstanding. We were hoping for good things, but the hotel surpassed our expectations. A few minor points as stated above, if rectified really would have made this one of the best holidays we have been on. We would definitely recommend it, and will return at some point we think.

Room Tip: Block 1 is furthest from the beach/pools restaurants. Bit of a walk, but almost means none of the o...

We came back on 24 September after 11 nights, this was our first all inclusive holiday. The reception area is very elegant, unfortunately, no welcome drink on arrival. We were driven from reception to our block by golf buggy which was wonderful and our cases taken to our room. The room and bathroom are beautifully decorated and immaculate, the jacuzzi bath is so relaxing. The rooms are cleaned every day and both the mini bar and bathroom restocked, if you call reception they will again re stock your mini bar that evening. There are no silly plastic wrist bands to wear, you just use your room card to prove who you are until the staff get to know you. The breaksfast choice is outstanding everything you could think of with several live cooking stations, there is even a fresh cone of honey, straight out the hive. The only problem is that trying to find a table that was laid, unless you are up very early with the Germans we found we often had to wait, no matter what time of day it was. The food choice during the day is excellent, the Nazende Cafe's choice of coffees, cakes is excellent, together with their sandwiches, waffles and icecream, but come 5.30pm there was only one place to eat which was the main dinning area the same as breakfast and only one bar in the evening which is the Peymane Bar. Although the food is again outstanding, it was always packed because the dining times are 7pm-9pm, if you go about 8.40pm we found most the children had gone and it was a bit quiter. W e would have liked to have had more choice of eateries and we were not too pleased about the cats roaming around the tables scrounging for food. The gala evening which is held every other Satuarday outdoors is excellent and made a refreshing change to being in the main restaurant. During our stay there was only two nights in which we saw people eating in the A la carte Turkish restaurant, having to pay 15 Euros each and then have to pay for your drinks is a bit much, considering the bar is 50 feet away. For some reason the Mehtabe Fish A la carte is not on the resort map and we only found out about this two nights before we left from another couple. There are only 5 tables so you need to book in advance and you can only do that by booking direct with reception, it is situated to the side of the Mehtabe bar, on a grass bank. You have to pay for your drinks here, the food was ok but not an A la carte fish choice and be mindful of the cats pestering you. The beach area is very nice and well kept, but it would have been nice to have waiter service to order drinks as in a 5 Star hotel, however, iced flannels were given out around 11am. The Mehtabe bar/ snack area is pleasant serving water melon, before snack time and the choice of snack food is very good. We did not spend any time by the main pool area, this was because unless you got up very early you could not get a sunbed. Although the entertainment staff were very enthusiastic, I don't want to be pestered into playing games or doing aqua areobics, which is not typical of a 5 star hotel. We spent most of our time during the day by the waterslide area, which is great fun and a very relaxing area, the choice of lunch and snacks at the Rana Restaurant was excellent, salads, different choice of pizzas,freshly cooked choice of meats, fruit and icecream. Opposite is the Endame Bar where the cocktails flowed. The spa is immaculate and has a tranquil atmosphere, we had a couple of massages which were wonderful. However, it is very expensive and so the spa staff are constantly walking around the grounds during the day asking people if they would like a treatment and doing deals to get people in. If you keep your prices reasonable you will get more customers. You cannot fault the staff they all work very hard and very long hours, they even remember what you drink which is amazing consider the number of people there. I have to agree with another review that "for many this resport may appear wonderful, but I can assure you there are many which are superior." It is a very nice resort and we would recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms in block 5 are near to the main restaurant, however, there are no rooms overlooking the pool a...
