We stayed here as a family of 4 with 2 teenagers aged 14 and 16 for 2 weeks in August. Had no problems with getting sunbeds by the pool which is a first for any holiday. Food was great with a varied selection and different specials for desserts each evening, freshly queezed orange juice at breakfast, waiter service for your drinks and no trouble getting a table. Ice Cream from the Parlour was delicious, great selection of alcoholic drinks and never had to wait long to be served at any of the bars. My son loved the hot chocolate! You are located right on a lovely sandy beach with water sports available and only a 30 minute walk along the promenade in to main Side with some shops and bars along the way. Out of the front of the hotel you have a selection of shops to look around and quite a few pharmacies. My son got an ear infection, as usual and the pharmacist gave him 2 lots of drops and antibiotics costing 12lira (less than £4). We had a one bedroom apt which was to have a double and single in bedroom and a sofa bed in lounge, however they kindly put a single in the lounge with the sofa bed so the boys could sleep out there together and we had the double bedroom, and the bed was very comfortable, just like home. Air conditioning in the room worked well and a free safe included. The only downside to the room was the 2 small wardrobes as this was the only storage area and didnt have a long enough drop to hang dresses or even long tops. The hotel cleanliness was good and never really had a problem with the staff, although sometimes you could get a different drink as some of them didn't understand English very well. Entertainment provided in the evening was good a few nights with outside acts but these were a bit too similar and the live music made a change, however would have been nice to have some acts by an entertainments team like we've had at other Turkish hotels eg comedy night or Abba to give it a bit of variety. Didn't think much of the entertainments team, did a bit of the usual darts, etc but this was very limited and they seemed to just walk around not really doing a lot. They were definitely the worse we've come across, no effort to mix. Although we didn't use the kids club this looked very well organised and had a good play area, in the shade and kids disco and the staff there always said hello. Gym was very modern and well equipped. Overall the holiday was great but the entertainments team let it down.
