“Best hotel with your kids...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

When you are in Side Resort you are not just staying at a beautiful hotel but you are also having your best holiday with the best hosting for both yourself and the kids. This was our fifth stay in Side Resort and looking forward for the next year. Delicious and assorted international food, proffessional day&night animation, a large entertaining pool, clean and secure environment with qualified and friendly staff made Side Resort the most prefered hotel for us. Location of the hotel is another atractive point with being close to downtown and beach. Also there are a lot of historical places and natural beauties at the surrounding area.

I have visited many 4 and 5 star hotels but this hotel is an exception.
It combines everything a traveler wants like hospitality, excellent service, amazing food, many activities for all ages, huge swimming pool and a clean and safe environment.
It is close to Side city (300 meters) where there are a lot of attractions like Apollo's temple, Side theater, nightlife, accessibility to boat trips etc.
Furthermore sea is within walking distance with beaches of outstanding beauty, clear waters and many sport facilities.
This hotel is outstanding for families, friends and couples.
I strongly recommend it!

This was our second stay at this hotel. All clean and beautiful food. Still - please work on drinks during lunch - we often got our drinks when finished eating. Still - Nice staff!
Our two girls just love to be here, and with such a secure area, this is perfect for kids. You do not need to worry.
We were hoping for new shows from the animation team this year,- but not. Whatever- they are really good:)
The Moods bar - SO much better this year- both the staff and drinks excellent.
Thank you all! We will be back!
And - the celebration of midsummer (swedish theme) - my first - nice :)
Special thanx to <3 Marina <3 Ibrahim

Stayed at the hotel during one week in June 2014 with my family (2 adults, 2 teenagers). We had an apartment with two rooms on the ground floor,including a kitchen corner: one bedroom with a double bed and two bedsofas in the living room.

The apartment was very clean and felt fresh (hotel apparently renovated in 2012). There is a separate AC equipment in each room. Wifi access is free and at least in our apartment both the coverage and bandwidth was good - not anything you are used to with free Wifis. The terass was very small and could hardly fit 4 small chairs and a table.

Cleaning takes place every day and the level of cleaning is super - well done.

All purchases in the hotel area (including super market) are done with a value/smart card so you don't have to carry cash e.g. to the pool. Very handy - until you check out and have to pay the bill ;-)

The breakfast was OK and I guess most persons will find something to eat here. We only had one dinner at the hotel (Italian restaurant) and that was very good.

There are 2 swimming pools in the hotel, one for small children and a larger one for the others. The large pool was usually quite crowded especially since many swimmers had their floating equipment/toys in the pool. But being a hotel mainly targetting families I guess this is something you need to be prepared for.

The hotel has their own 'entertainment staff' trying to get the people involved in varies activities. There also seemed to be a special 'day care' type of service for smaller children.

The hotel is located 15-20 minutes walk from the old city/harbour where most of the commercial activities in the area takes place. There are also a few restaurants within 5-10 minutes from the hotel, we tried a few of them (e.g. Serena, Saffran, Red Lion) and were usually quite satisfied with what we got.

So to conclude, being a pessimistic Finn that normally needs something to complain about, this hotel gave me a very hard time - I simply can not really find anything to complain about here! If you're looking for a good, clean hotel, suitable for families and don't mind being slightly off-track from the commercial activities, I can warmly recommend this hotel.

If your family needs good place to spend holiday, it is this!!! We have 2 kids (boy 5 girl 6) and they loved this hotel. Very good food (we choice all inclusive), clean environment and nice staff !!!
Best this hotel was that most visitors (maybe 98%) was from some nordic land, no russian, englinsh or germany people !!!

Eli suomeksi: Meidän perhe (isä äiti, poika5v ja tyttö 6v) tykästyttiin tähän hotelliin. Ruoka oli tosi hyvää (meillä oli all inclusive, syötiin siis vain hotellissa tuo viikko), jokapuolella oli siistiä ja henkilökunta tosi mukavaa. Parasta tietysti näin suomalaisittain olis se että suurin osa hotellin vieraista oli pohjoismaista tulleita, ei venäläisiä, brittejä eikä saksalaisia pilaamassa tunnelmaa. Ei voi kuin suositella jos haluaa (pienten)lasten kanssa matkalle !!!

Side Resort is a mid-range hotel that exceeds expectations. The rooms are average sized and has all the necessities however you should make sure you order a room with pool view otherwise you risk to feel a bit claustrophobic. The pool area is good although as with all theese places the sun bed-guest ratio could be better. The pool is heated at the beginning and the end of the season making it a nice place to go in early April or late October.

The hotel is located a little bit from the main areas which I found good since it's in quite calm surroundings. A 10 minute walk to the beach and/or centre, they do have busses to and from the East beach (which is way better than the west beach),

The restaurang buffet offers a great variety with a theme for each day. The interior is a bit impersonal but the food quality is excellent, you notice how they take pride in preparing it (and you should know I'm a bit picky when it comes to food :).

The true stars of the hotel however are the staff. You can notice how they do their utmost to make you feel welcome, the atmoshpere is friendly, almost familial without ever becoming invasive. Having being there for a few times by now it almost feels like coming home...and this goes for all the staff, it starts with the front desk, goes on with the restaurant and bar staff (chefs, waiters, cleaning), the cleaners, administrative staff and the animation team. For kids the animation team is a true treat, they also put on a show every evening that managed to be both charming and professional at the same time.

For someone who always wanted to go explore a new places it's hard to admit that we'll be back for more.

Room Tip: Select Pool view otherwise you'll be able to watch whatever goes on in the rooms of the hotel ne...

We spent a week in Side resort. Everything was in tip top order. Beautiful and clean environment. I would like to thank the management and the staff for their superb and exceptional effort to make everyone welcome. They all work very hard to keep everything running and they are very efficient and unbelievably friendly. We all felt very sad when we had to say goodbye to them. The all-inclusive option was excellent and delicious, but if you don't want to spend too much time in the hotel don't order it.The only negative thing I can mention (and I must say it has nothing to do with the hotel or it's staff) is the photographer, whom as far I as I know is not part of the hotel staff. He has a bad attitude and wants to charge way too much money. I give this hotel 5 stars and will recommend it to all my friends anytime.
