Where to start,
I'll keep to the point, WOW!
Weather fantastic, went mid July. 2 weeks solid sun, micro climate by the pool reached 50 C, so beware.
However cool pool, the sea is metres away, cold drinks a plenty, fresh fruit, ices and ice cream as well as sheltered areas and canopy's. Private beach.
Hotel as in accommodation, we stayed in a room for 3, adults, there are no doubt suites and double rooms but this one served us well. Mini fridge in the room stocked daily and on our most recent visit this included a couple of bottles of Effes the local pilsner.
The layout, grounds, open areas for alfresco eating are superb. You can eat outside all day and night due to the weather.
Food was a holiday highlight. Varied, fresh, tasty, and as much or as little as often as you like.
Drink, both alcoholic and otherwise, plenty...on our visit this included Branded drinks, so here is a top tip, if the same offer is on, always ask for example for a Jack Daniels & Coke, and believe me, once the waiter knows your order, the glass never empties. That said, it wasn't a boozy holiday for us, you need to hydrate with regular top ups of water, it was nice to have a couple of snifters here and there, and a drink with the meals, and then relax. The Effes pilsner is so refreshing, so regular glasses to refresh is a must.
Staff, and animation staff are first rate. Attentive, friendly, and I can say added so much to the experience.
There a 4 Ala'carte restaurants, which in essence are dining areas within the hotel. Italian - lovely, Chinese, tasty, Turkish all you would expect, Fish simply superb. All offer silver service, away from the main eating areas of the hotel, and the Fish restaurant overlooks the beach, and Med sea at sunset. Our favourite.
Evening entertainment bar and disco, varied and fun.
Side, the port, the artefacts and roman remains worthy of a visit, these are about 25 minutes walk away along the beach.
This is must because some of the remains go back to the 1st century.
This is truly a great hotel within easy reach of 2000 years of history.
Looking forward to going again as soon as possible.
