A superb hotel. I'm still drooling about the food even though back two weeks.Staff well mannered and helpful - only criticism they get around the resort by golf buggies - there were some aspiring Jenson Buttons' amongst them. Willy at Reception was extremely helpful and his English was very good. Whilst the rooms were very plush I didn't like the concept of glass walls adjoining the bathroom. We had to move from our original room as one of the two blinds fixed for bathroom privacy didn't work but that withstanding the rooms were very well equipped and the fridges restocked every day with complimentary drinks and snacks.If you are housed in one of the blocks adjacent to the river/stream you will be lulled to sleep by the chirruping of the frog population. I can't wait to go back.

We were very impressed with the whole package, but mainly the staff. I did slip up and forgot to write some staff names down this time but special mention must go to the gentleman who was on Reception when we arrived. He seemed really keen to help, and this continued throughout the holiday. Not wishing to be rude but he was the larger member of the reception team, and he should be congratulated. Also one of the waiters in the main restaurant. He was practicing his English with us and he provided excellent service. I nicknamed him the weightlifter so I'm sure he would be easily recognized. All the bar staff were excellent.
The food was of a high standard and there was something for everybody whatever their tastes. A special mention to the Chicken Fajitas at the Beach Bar.
The service at the A la Carte was good but I would only recommend it if you have a special occasion as it was no better than the main restaurant, and I was sitting on a couch and by the end of the meal had a backache.
The rooms were first class and the only criticism I had was the size of the balcony.
The entertainment was very professional. My personal favorite was Reflections.
All in all an excellent holiday and the only thing that let it down was the Thomson rep. My wife and her sister decided to do the day trip to Capadocia and the rep had no idea what was involved. there were more problems on the trip but not worth going into here as I will sort this out with Thomson.
An excellent holiday overall and I would certainly go back.

My Wife and I travelled to Ali Bey in May from Manchester, for a two week All Inclusive holiday.

On arrival, we were impressed by the main building and the gardens are beautiful. The staff are friendly - although, their grasp of English is very basic with one or two exceptions.

The Rooms: Immaculately clean, thoughtfully designed and very elegant (although, a glass wall between the bathroom and the bedroom is a little bit funky - thankfully, there is an electronic blind!). Ground floor rooms are a little bit exposed to the paths / guests who are walking past so I'd suggest a room on floors 1 or 2. The mini-fridge is refilled every day and inclusive. Beers, wine, water and chocolate & nuts.

Breakfast: Served in the main restaurant and we tended to stick to croissants / coffee *Although you can have bacon, eggs, etc etc (and many of the people had bacon, eggs and etc etc and croissants and pain au chocolat!)

Lunch: We found the little beach restaurant to be the best food during our stay. For lunch, you have a choice of salads - tuna, haloumi, chicken (all great) and meals include Pizza, quesadilla, fajita (brilliant) and a variety of pastas (all great).

Afternoon snack: (if you fancy it) - fresh waffles with hot chocolate sauce? Do it, at least once. You will love them!

Evening Food: This was our bugbear. People are notoriously greedy and All Inclusive holidays seem to bring the worst our in people! Piles and piles of food on their plate. Anyway; there is lots of food on offer although, not lots of flavour. We found the food very boring and repetitive and certainly not 5* - not by a long way. 3* at best.

The internal seating areas, smell like a canteen and that led us to sitting outside. Problem there is, the resort has a problem with cats. Sitting at your feet, waiting to be fed and generally, putting you off your dinner. Some people were actually feeding the cats from their plate as they and others ate. Not great.

The desserts were beautifully presented, however, by the time we got to them (9pm) they had been pulled apart and didn't look very appealing. There is a little coffee / cake cafe between the adult pool and the main pool - the cakes in there are brilliant and we wandered over there most nights after dinner for a coffee / tea and a cake. Much better.

The Entertainment: The shows are generally brilliant. Michael Jackson and The Lion King were exceptionally good. Well worth going to see.

The Beach: Not the best beach we've been on, but it's private (to the hotel) and clean and it's okay.

The Chek-out: We flew home at 1am (Sat) and were collected from the Hotel at 11pm (Fri). We extended our checkout direct with the Hotel about 2 days before the end of our holiday. It cost us €60 and we were able to enjoy our last day, fully.

Side: We travelled to Side in 2008 and it was great. Friendly, quiet and inviting. It's so much busier now, hundreds of 'bracelet shops' and 'kebab vendors'. Be careful when buying anything - the conversion rates are very peculiar. *Take Turkish Lira with you and look out for Service Charges on your bill in restaurants!!

In summary, the resort is beautiful. The staff are very good. The food during the day is great. The food in the evening is pretty average.

We would not return to the Ali Bey Resort.

Room Tip: Choose a room on Floor 1 / 2.

My husband and I have just returned from our second visit to Ali Bey Resort in Side,
Turkey and the quality has again been fantastic. From arrival at the airport to departure we have had a fabulous experience. We did experience several days of rain but you could expect this in early May but it didnt spoil our stay.
We had a couple of issues with our room but the way they were dealt with was brilliant and therefore did not create problems.
The staff are so friendly and approachable, from the top management to the cleaners and this all lends itself to a perfect destination.
We will certainly be returning next year if not before.

Room Tip: If you like to sit and get the sun at the end of the day on your balcony you need to select a second or third floor room as, due to the beautiful greenery and foliage the ground and first floor rooms do not get the sunshine. There are lifts available.

Myself and my wife stayed at AliBey with another couple of friends for an all inclusive week in early May.

Upon arrival we were given a warm welcome and a (curious) fruity cocktail. From there on in, everything was thoroughly enjoyable.

Rooms: Perfectly fine, always very clean, re-stocked and available ( a couple of nice touches throughout he week too).

Food: The main restaurant is a help yourself buffet deal, but don't let that put you off. The variety is great and you can be either adventurous or timid, depending on your mood (or, should you be insatiable gluttons like us, both, at the same time, with seconds.)

We also had an evening at the A La Carte restaurant. This was on the black and white gala night so was quieter than normal, but we had an excellent meal; well worth the extra (it was also my birthday and I was well looked after).

Resort: We had rain for a couple of days and throughout this time, the groundstaff were obviously trying as hard as they could to keep standards up. The place is very well kept and the gardens are lovely. Look out for tame cats too...I am a dog man normally, but these were quite endearing little characters.

We also took in a show (the Lion King). While not the West end it was remarkably enjoyable and we stayed until the end.

The staff: This is where AliBey stands out. The staff really cant do enough for you. All seem to be multi-lingual, all are attentive, and on the 2 days that it rained, none went missing but instead were on hand to make sure that everyone was ok and provide entertainment where possible.

The bar and restaurant staff were great and special mention should go to Abdullah, the photographer, who took some fun pictures of us.

A great time had by all. We have come home tanned, refreshed and impressed.
