“Fantastic a 5star +”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We just came back after having spend one week with our grandchildren in this hotel. We had a family room in the new building two fantastic rooms each with a beautiful bathroom, the rooms were separated by a private hall and had a joined terrace. Every day our fridges were filled with soft drinks. We wanted a quiet room and it was indeed very quiet. My grandson had his birthday so we ordered a birthday cake, the staff came and sang for him. The service was great.
Although the place is very big and there were a lot of people, you never had the idea it was crowded. We stayed in several 5* hotels in Turkey, but this is definitely one of the best.
The fresh orange juice in the morning is fantastic, as was the food in general. Everything was very fresh and the choice was enormous. A different theme every night: Turkish, Mediterranean, etc. even a real gala evening. We loved to be on the jetty, a pity some people put their towels on the beds without being there at all or during a very short time.
One disadvantage is the Wi-Fi, you have to pay separately for every devise.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room the new building is far from disco and evening entertainment. Even the ai...

Just came back yesterday, had a lovely time at this hotel although we British were definitely in the minority, this doesn't bother us though. My husband and I travelled with our very inactive 18 yr old daughter and very active 9 year old son. Booked through Thompson.

Hotel provides lots of activities although they are dominated by the Germans/Russians, our son didn't join the kids club and prefers to spend his time running rings around his father playing football, golf, table tennis etc. plenty for him to occupy them.

Plenty if sunbeds available & staff would fetch more, placing them where you wanted them if necessary.

I found a good choice at meal times and the food was very good and plentyful. Chips available at lunchtime and evening meals for the more fussy eaters in the family & most days there was pizza as well. Didnt take advantage of the pizza delivery service to the room. Loads of cakes ;-)

Rooms were cleaned & towels changed every day. Pool towels available sunday, tuesday & friday.

Bars were great, we enjoyed their relaxed atmosphere - have to wear t-shirts when using indoor facilities & all of the restaurants (including the beach bar).

Evening entertainment ranged from ok to quite good - the entertainment team worked very hard all day. Performers were brought in for some of the evening shows which included dancers & singers, magician (hmmmm). There was a show put on by the kids club and the entertainment team did other things and tried to keep in multicultural. Everything was announced in various languages.

Weather prevented the outdoor turkish night (it was too hot) so they brought it indoors and had a few market stalls around the agora bar.

We caught the service bus into the old town of Side one evening, which picks up and drops off outside the hotel gate (no. 11 in & 10 back) and had a walk around to see the ruins. You do get pestered when you get down towards the dock by the usual "come & eat" with us mob but they were what you expect.

The trip to the turkish bath is really good but beware of the hard sell for additional treatments after youve been through the bath process.

We also did the "Active Family" trip to go canyoning. Was a great day but beware it is hard work & if health & safety existed in turkey they would have a field day!! Our 9 year old struggled with the swimming upstream in a wetsuit but we still enjoyed it & had a real sense of achievement when we got back to the base camp - exhausted (we are all pretty fit).

We always managed to get a table for the four of us when eating in the main restaurant indoors. Outside are the tables for 8.

I would recommend this hotel to our friends.

Room Tip: We had booked a club room which was recently re-furbished if a little bit of a climb back from the t...

Just returned from a 1 week holiday at blue waters, first impressions of the outside and of reception look dated , but the rest of the hotel very nice, large complex, plenty of bars and no waiting to be served, hardly any snacks when restaurant are not open, been to other hotel of same standard where food was better, having more carved meat to choose from, staff are great ( waiters, bar staff, cleaners and reception) 1 of the bar staff even offered to take my wife and I out for the day in a hired car to some less well know sites, where this hotel let me down was on the animation team, in other hotels they come round and have a chat , there they hardly spoke, lucky to get a hello out of some of them, restaurants most tables are 8 seats and most people prefer to eat with there own families, so 2 or 3 people siting at each table that's made for 8, this place is great for children lots of play areas 1 even on the beach, don't bother with the mini zoo 4 goats some chickens and ducks and is hardly signposted, never felt like they treated any 1 nation better than any other, and I think beach bar at night could have better lighting
Remember to take everything off transfer coach ( forgot my phone, never got back) and let down by tan tur transfers the return coach driver did not know where 2 of the hotels where ( had to ask police, shop keepers and other hotel staff)

Just arrived back on Saturday from a fantastic week at the blue waters resort. This hotel definitely deserves it's 5 stars. Hotel is immaculate and the staff work extremely hard to keep it this way. Food was delicious and got the big thumbs up from all my family. We did how ever try the chinese restaurant one night which needs to be booked in advance but some how it just didn't reach our expectations and we left feeling a little hungry. My son however loved to take advantage of the pizza delivery room service from 9.30- 11 pm. We stayed in the new block in a family suite which was styled very modern and very much to our taste. Two very large rooms, 2 bathrooms, and two balconies...... Fantastic! There was only about 6 British families in the hotel when we were there but that did not both us one bit. Lots of nationalities like German, Polish, Swedish and French. We found them all very friendly indeed. We love the beach bar on a night time as it played live music. Only thing that I would complain about is that we had to come home! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We were allocated 2 bungalow rooms for our family of 5 by thomson when booking. On arriving at the h...

i just got back yesterday from my holiday at this resort and was amazing! i would rate it more than 5*. the resort is massive with everything you need to make a perfect holiday... they even provide you with beach towels. the food was amazing every night...they have something new everyday and they also had a lot to choose from if your vegetarian. drinks and food provided through out the whole day. all their swimming pools were very big with enough sunbeds. The beach is very nice clean and sandy with clean sea, they also provide you with sunbeds on the beach. This resort was very clean where ever you go. The rooms were also very nice and we had the maid service everyday who did a great job too. the staff at this resort are the best. They were all so very kind and friendly and always willing to help and most of them could speak english. the resort has its own spa and gym which was really nice aswell. evening entertainment every night with different themes. love this hotel would definitely recommend and would like to thank all the great staff at this resort for making our holiday perfect!

I have to agree with what has been written recently about this hotel. It seems strange that not many British stay here as it is a very nice hotel,lovely rooms,a good selection of food and very hard working staff who are plesent and helpful, they like the Brits very much! Some seem to struggle with English, but give them a chance because they try very hard. On the down side this place is full of Eastern Europeans and Russian's who we found to be rude, aggressive and seemed to give the staff a hard and demanding time whenever they could, the way they act you would think they own the place,on talking to locals you can see why they don't like them! One concern I did have was the number of flys around the food at food times in the restaurant 's, with no evidence of anti fly apparatus. But apart from that I agree with the Thompson rating of 4.5. We would return......

We were worried by the sheer size of the complex when we first saw it. Full size football pitches, tennis courts, 4 swimming pools, childrens playgrounds, gym, spa, dance studio, disco, main bar open 24/7 blue flag beach & more! however, the staff keep the place spotless & are all very professional. Excellent venue if you are a family group catering for different ages. There is something for everyone from tots to teens, mum & dad plus grandparents. Classical or 'easy listening' music played in the main bar each evening, beach bar with a live group or the club bar with live acts, The slight downside was that us Brits were few & far between so you didn't hear much English spoken but the other guests were friendly & we didn't find it an issue. Lots of Germans & Russians with a smattering of Dutch, French, Swedish etc. We were in the main building & to be fair the rooms are looking a bit tired but were practical & kept well. We didn't spend much time in the room so it wasn't an issue for us. The in room fridge was stocked every day with soft drinks.
I contemplated giving the complex a poor rating so that it would be easier to book for a return visit:)

Room Tip: Rooms in the main hotel building are quieter than the club rooms. the Club side of the complex has m...
