Venus Hotel
Ranked #106 of 228 Hotels in Side
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We booked this for just one night on our way back from further East. Apart from us, everyone seemed to be on a package holiday. The staff seemed stunned when being addressed in Turkish and even my English-speaking partner was continously being spoken to in German. Dinner was devoid of anything Turkish. Do people really want to eat stodgy German food when on holiday? That said, there were lots of salad choices and the breakfast buffet was very good. The room was excellent. Unfortunately, another hotel decided to play very loud cheesy music from 10 pm onwards - even earplugs didn't help much. Russia Today was the only English TV choice - certainly provides an 'interesting' world view.

Firstly, we visited at the start of the season 2013. The area was in full flow getting ready for the season. Some areas such as the children's play area needed grass cutting, weeding and general tidying. The Hotel staff were lovely, they took pride in providing a good service. The food was excellent, breakfast freshly cooked pancakes/eggs, main courses varied - lamb, chicken, fish. There was certainly plenty of food and the restaurant staff were friendly.
Many of the workers spoke English (enough to get by), the animation team were fantastic (especially with my children), as the majority of visitors were German and Dutch. Most of the entertainment was multilingual but favoured the German language!
The majority of visitors were families and older couples.
The location was quiet with a few shops and taverns.
The beach was a nice and sandy and was 5 minutes walk away.
The local area was well served by the 1euro bus service.

In summery: We enjoyed the hotel, the food, people and the surrounding area!
A good valued holiday

Room Tip: First floor overlooking central courtyard is nice!

It's a good place for families, with all the children - friendly facilities. It's clean, there's a big choice of food and you can go to its own spa to have Turkish bath. A good hotel but it's hard to communicate with the workers cause they want to talk in German, not in English.

Hotel Venus is quite small, which i find good if you want to relax. Most of it's guests are older people or families with young children. You can find it borring if like to party or sitting in bar till late night hours, beacause there isn't such place. However you can go to one the bar or disco placed outside the hotel, which are very nice and young people are meeting there.
In my opninion staff was very friendly and kind. Food was really great! The beach wasn't very attractive and it was about 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
All in all I think staying at Venus is good idea, but not longer then week.

The Venus Hotel was fantastic. It is a small family owned and operated establishment. Ibrahim and Karen could not have been more friendly or welcoming. The rooms are clean, bright, cheerful and reasonably sized. There is an open air restaurant in the front and Mamma's home cooking was tasty.

We only have praise for the Venus Hotel and recommend it.
