Hi everyone just returned from a 2 week stay at the Lemas Suite Hotel, Had a great time and would definately reccommend anyone to go that is looking for a reasonable relaxing holiday.

We stayed in the Hotel, this is a very small room and basic however it IS just for sleeping in, the air con is free and this makes a big difference as other place is Turkey charge £20 GBP per week for the air con.

The staff were all lovely and helpful we liked all the boys and they coudnt have been any nicer (despite the last review on here)

Only downside to Side (Lemas Suite) was at night time, streets are quite dark and you can find yourself easily lost, it is a good ten mins walk to a few restaurants, but Side Centre where it all seems to be happening is only 30 TL return and is well worth going too. This downside though has no reflection on the hotel it is simply where it is situated.

Half Board - Not to my liking the food, but there was not many complaints it was lovely if you normally ate these things ( Lots of Salad )

If you want to try a day trip i definately would go white river rafting ask Jimmy Aka Mr Fix it, to arrange this WHAT a day fantastic and worth the £17 each we paid for it.

Lemas in my opinion was a fantastic holiday, beautiful weather and pleasant people exactly what i went on holiday for, if you take this hotel for what it is then you will have a fab time, you are not paying for a 4/5 star so no point complaining about it.

Room Tip: Perhaps the Apartment side will be better, unless you are just looking for a sleep.

Just returned from a 8day holiday from Side, with my two kids and hubby. We stayed at the lemas suit hotel. The waiters were extremely rude and unhelpful at this hotel, one shouted at me and told me to wait and another lady asked for a spoon for her toddler and was told to be patient. Very unhelpful waiters indeed. He shouted at me and then carried on talking in Turkish to the other waiter which i found extremely rude, in the end my husband had to have a word with his attitude. Also, we asked the cook to prepare a meal for our child as the buffet was served at 7.30pm which was too late for our child. He was unhappy to prepare and clearly made a point of it. The rooms were okay, clean enough. The pool was great for the kids. Overall, we had a pleasant stay.

rooms are very basic as you would expect for the money. small but enough room for two people. only one plug socket per room though and the shower is more like a dribble. pool area nice and never a fight for a sunbed if you lay towels down before midday. breakfast is good (comparing this to other turkish hotels stayed at). turkish night was good value for money with entertainment and nice food but would recommend booking early as it got very busy. unable to get wi-fi unless you sat at the hotel reception. easy shuttle to the beach everyday. however the hotel is no where near central Side. you have to get a taxi into town. there are a few restaurants within walking distance down the dirt tracks but much better to go into town which costs 15L each way. this hotel was clean and basic but the location let it down.

My daughter and I have just returned from a week in Side, we booked the lemas suit hotel online after reading mostly very good reviews and saw that it was given 3/4 stars. On our arrival we were taken to our room which was not in the main part of the hotel but in an annexe across the road, we were on the 3rd floor and there was no lift which was not a problem for us but would be fo less mobile guests. Our room was very small and very tired looking, there was only one power socket in the room so when we wanted to use the hair dryer or phone charger we had to unplug an adapter used for the fridge and tv. The room was so small it was impossible to sit at the tiny dressing table because the fridge was pushed up next to it, there was nowhere to store the suitcases so they had to be put next to the fridge, the bathroom was also small which had a shower with no cubicle, just a curtain around a hole in the floor and the tiles on the wall were cracked. The rooms do have air conditioning which is free of charge and this is a must as the temperature was 40 plus each day, however it can't be kept on overnight as it's so noisy. We had booked half board, the first night the food was terrible and the second even worse so we ended up eating out for the rest of the week. It seemed that most of the guests were either bed and breakfast or self catering and there was hardly anyone eating there. There was no entertainment in the hotel apart from one night a week when they have a turkish evening which we didn't stay around for. The hotel runs a complementary shuttle bus to the beach, it costs 8 lira for two sunbeds and a parasol for the day which is very reasonable, but the beach boys ask where you are staying as guests of some other places don't have to pay for these. As we spent so little time in the hotel we didn't get to know the staff so can't really comment about them, one word of warning however, don't book a massage at the hotel as they are available on the beach for a quarter of the price. To get to Side in the evenings we got a taxi near the main road about 5-10 mins walk away which costs 15 lira each way, Side is a lovely town with many places to eat, it's not a late night place but there are a few clubs if you are wanting to stay out late, the shops stay open while ever people are around, most are still open past midnight. We would return to Side but would definitely not return to Lemas Suit hotel, at best we would give it 2 stars and can't understand where the 3/4 stars came from when we booked online .

Room Tip: We were in the annexe over the road, the rooms in the main part of the hotel may have been better, b...

Where to start...For what we paid, it was hard to know what to expect given some mixed reviews. Having arrived after the kitchen closed, the staff were kind enough to order us some takeaway as we were starving after the journey. This set the tone for the rest of the holiday - the staff were amazing (a special thanks goes to 'Mr Fix It' and Justin) and in all honesty made this trip what it was. They were always happy to help and regularly went above and beyond to make the trip more comfortable.

We went in mid-July during a heatwave, so the free air conditioning was much needed. The rooms were basic but had all the necessities you need to make the stay comfortable. We were lucky enough to be situated close enough to get a wifi signal from the bar/lobby area in our rooms. Note the wifi is very slow but sufficient to check emails, check-in online etc.

The hotel itself is a bit out of the way - i'd say a good 5-10 minutes walk to the main road where there are restaurants, bars, shops, cash exchange offices etc. Otherwise it is a 5 minute cab journey to ancient Side (only 15 TL) which the staff will gladly call on your behalf. There's a lot more going on around ancient Side especially if you're looking for shopping, so worth a visit. I'd also say (especially if you don't have any young children in tow) to visit Manavgat market - we found this to be the cheapest and biggest shopping area though it is a 30 minute cab/bus journey away.

There was a lot of competition for sunbeds in the hotel so would recommend getting your towell down there nice and early to avoid disappointment. Otherwise the beach is a 10 minute walk or you can get a free shuttle bus from the hotel to another beach which run from 9-11am and 3-5pm. Sometimes they will give you free beds on the beach if you buy drinks but this has to be agreed before you lie on them, so worth having that conversation before you settle down. Otherwise it's only 4 TL a bed for the day.

The food was ok in the hotel but we only had dinner once. Breakfast was good enough with a wide selection. The dinner we had on Thursday at the hotel was a BBQ and part of a Turkish night with dancers etc. The food was delicious and would definitely recommend hanging around the hotel this evening as its also good value for money. Otherwise there are plenty of restaurants 5-10 minutes walk away. I would thoroughly recommend asking reception for directions and visiting Umut Kebap - we ate at a few but found this to be head and shoulders above the rest.

So in summary, a nice little hotel with fantastic staff and brilliant value for money. Would 100% recommend staying here if your looking for a relaxing holiday with the option to venture out. I plan on going back again in the near future I enjoyed my stay that much! :-)

Had a fantastic holiday here during the 1st two weeks of july, and i am at a loss to explain where the poor reviews have come from, yes a lick of paint here or there would not go amiss but overall we found hotel to be in very good condition.
Arrived in the late afternoon and with no fuss we were shown to an apartment which could easily sleep 4 or 5 people with a balcony overlooking main pool area.
Bar and restaurant staff were superb throughout holiday getting whatever you wanted and doing all they could to please all guests.
The main pool area was always busy during the day but you could still arrive around 10am and find 3 sunbeds so no need to be setting early alarms. The other pool which is across the road is much quieter with only around 15 sunbeds around it but again no rush for sunbeds required.
The hotel is not on the beach and is set well back in side but it is only a 5 minute walk to the main road and if you want to go to old side its 15 lira in taxi . there are 3 free minbuses running to the beach every day staring at 0930 and back again late afternoon.
We were b&b and im not sure what choice everyone else has at home but you could have had something different every morning so not sure what the complaints about the breakfast have been about .
Dinner in hotel restaurant was as good if not better than most in the area and the turkish night was excellent.
Overall an excellent little hotel for a relaxing holiday which is made even better by the staff so big thanks to mr fix it , justin and last but by no means least sunshine who never stops (well thats what he says) .
Would i recommend the hotel , absolutely, but remember its a 2 or 3 star hotel with 5 star service ...if you want 5 star accomodation and all your entertainment laid on then pay the bigger money

Room Tip: high floor pool view

Can easily recommend this hotel. Although we did not pay a lot for bed and breakfast for a week in July, we were extremely pleasantly surprised throughout our stay. We are difficult to please, and usually stay in a 5 star hotel, but to be honest enjoyed the feel of this place more than the big 5 star hotels.

What you will get from this hotel, is a nice sized room (if you have an apartment as opposed to the studio), air conditioning free of charge, a perfectly adequate choice of breakfast, a quiet and peaceful location with plenty of birds, a local small shop that has most things that you need, a nice sized swimming pool, service with a smile!

A short taxi ride will take you into the main attractions of Side - ideal if you want to visit the Amphitheatre and museum. Side is also full of shops, restaurants and bars. Taxi one way is 15 Turkish lira only. There are a number of restaurants and small shops more local to the Lemas Suite if you just want to amble a short distance.

Please bear in mind that this is a 3 star hotel and the comments about the breakfasts are a little unfair. The breakfast is perfectly adequate, and what you miss out on choice from a larger 5 star hotel, you gain in other ways. Food throughout our stay was very good - we ate plenty of salads too and had no upset stomachs at all.

Yes, the decor is a little tired in places but it is clean, the showers were fine both in the morning and the evening, the air conditioning was very efficient. The pool and surrounding areas were regularly cleaned, and there was a good choice of snacks and drinks around the pool. The service was always provided with a smile.

We met a number of people who had either been to Lemas Suite before or who would happily return, us included with that. In fact, we were hoping to go back in October during the school holiday time but the season ends towards the end of October and so we may have to plan to go back another time,

Plenty of opportunities with the local rep for interesting excursions.

Would recommend this hotel to anyone, particularly great for families and couples. Any negative comments made on previous reviews could have been avoided purely by properly researching what is required from a holiday.

If you are looking for a quiet, friendly location to relax and chill - then I don't think that you can go far wrong at this hotel.

Room Tip: If you require Wifi from the room, although quite slow sometimes, ask for a room closer to the recep...
