Firstly I must say that Thomas Cook is about the worst Airline in the world even Ryanair has more legroom. Emergency exits between seats is about 18 inches wide. Find another way of getting to a wonderful hotel.
Now the Hotel, we arrived at around 5 in the morning, greeted with a glass of Champagne and no waiting at the check in desk, it came to us. Luggage taken to room where in the fridge was a sandwich and refreshments. Absolutely first class particularly after that flight.
The room was exceptionally spacious and clean. Didn't think it needed updating, beds very comfortable with linen and towels changed daily. The room maid, although didn't speak English, was great. (we were in Turkey why should they speak English). We were in block G which was a couple of minutes away from reception, bar and restaurants. There was a pool specifically for the block, main pools, private beach and jetties. Getting to the beach and lawned area for sun bathing was a little further but we had no problem getting sun beds, all the more remarkable because there was 11 of us. The animation team were some of the best I've come across not being pushy but trying to motivate us. We took a couple of days to get into the swing of things but when we eventually joined in FABULOUS. Murka one of the team we re-named Barry Manilow was brilliant and made our holiday, always curteous and laughing. Thanks Murka if you ever get to read this. The evening entertainment was very very good with groups coming from outside, as well as the Animation team doing a show each evening including on of the best Michael Jackson shows I've seen. The Disco at the end of the evening was also great again the animation team were there till 1am on one occassion putting on a "Grease" dance show.
The food was very good with something for everyone including Burgers, fresh pizza, nuggets , fries as well as turkish foods,pastas well the list goes on. The 4 other restaurants were the Turkish which was very good but lighting poor we couldn't see what we were eating. The Chinese exceeded our expectations, brilliant, the Italian was ok, the Fish restaurant again very good. With the exception of the Italian the service was very good in all restaurants.
Breakfast was ok no English sausages or bacon but plenty of everything else. The Egg cook could do with a lesson in cooking eggs and smiling. Lunch was again exceptional with a vast menu with something for everyone.
The bars again were very very good with the staff always happy to serve you. During the evening entertainment our waiter was Cengis well worth tipping his service was exceptional bringing us drinks without having to keep re-ordering and he knew what we wanted the next evening. When I say tip we are talking 2-3 pounds per night for service that was exceptional.
Finally thanks to all the staff who made our holiday so memorable we will return. Last year we went to the WOW in Bodrum and didn't think we could top that in Turkey but this Hotel did by a mile.
