Just returned from a week long stay at Barut Andiz. What a fantastic break!! On arrival we were greeted with a welcome cocktail, taken up to our superb room overlooking both the pool and with a sea view and then left to our own devices. This hotel has such a relaxed atmosphere. Easy to get sunbeds at any time of the day eliminated having to get up at 7:30am to secure any. Wonderful food served all day long which isn't easy during a buffet service. Good variety of food and in particular the Italian a la carte restaurant was superb as well as the Turkish themed evening. Evening entertainment was relaxed and fitted in perfectly with the relaxed atmosphere of the whole place. As great as the hotel, Thomson staff, location, food etc were they really do not compare to how great the staff were. The manager was always around if you required anything happily talking to guests, the Thomson reps were always on hand for those that like some easy going day time entertainment but the real heroes are the waiters and bar staff for all of their hard work. A special mention to Halit who was an absolute legend, pouring drinks for you before you had even reached the bar to order, continually topping drinks up without you even having to leave your seat and all this with a constant smile on his face. The staff really make this hotel! We have already recommended this hotel to friends and family and would not hesitate in returning in the future.
