“Summer Holiday”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

We have been going to this hotel for approx 7 years. The owners Yelcin and Sibel have renovated this hotel to a fantastic standard. The family atmosphere and entertainment shows are amazing. Its a testament in itself when the same staff have worked their for years. This year we had a fabulous entertainment manager called Keenan and his lovely fiance Aj.....the best ones in my experience. . Before my husband and I used to go as a couple but this year we went as a family....loved it. Great slides and pools for children and cean rooms every day... fabulous evening meals. .. fabulous staff and hotel manager Ozzy ofcourse.... cant wait for next year....

Went to this hotel as a last minute booking , we booked Friday night 4th july and flew next morning Saturday 5th july for 7 nights half board with Thomas Cook , We didnt know what to expect , we didnt get there till late saturday night so was quite dark when arrived and tired so just checked in and had a quick drink and as it was late knew the restuarant would be closed , we asked if there was anywhere to eat nearby and were told no problem our kitchen will make you something and we got cheese and onion toastie with chips which were great . Next morning we went down to the most fantastic panoramic sea views from the dining terrace and had breakfast , as our room was facing the other side of the hotel (which was still fine as nice view of funfair up the hill ) we went to reception and asked if it was possible to change to a room with pool and seaview and nothing was to much bother we changed that same morning to room 405 which was fantastic . Rooms are very clean and tidy . Ignore any bad reviews of the food as it was lovely and the snack menu is brilliant . Staff in this hotel are all lovely and make you feel very welcome and we had a great laugh with them especially young Sam and Eddie . Pool is lovely and theres seperate one for kiddies , Hotel is central for everything as said in previous comments , walk down small steep hill to main road and only 15 mins walk either way to Ladies beach to left (which is lovely ) or right to town , port and marina or dolimus stop for both . All in all this is fantastic hotel with fantastic staff and lovely owners and met some lovely people there , i,ll certainly be going back , one of the best holidays we,ve had and we,ve had a lot !! THANKS CLUB LION . Kusadasi is fab too ...ps....giant screen tv in tv room is brill for when football is on !

Room Tip: Room 405 had fantastic panoramic views of sea and pool area

My wife and I stayed here for 11 nights half board with Thomas Cook in July.

The hotel is centrally located approximately 1km from the centre. The hotel is on the top of a steep hill but only 2 minutes walk to the main road where you can catch a dolmus bus into town, which will cost you the grand sum of 1.75tl each. If you fancy a walk into town it will take you around 15 minutes. There is a mini market outside the hotel if you wish to purchase water, beer etc but you are not permitted to bring these into the hotel.

We stayed in room 403 which is accessible via a lift. The room has a small balcony with 2 chairs overlooking the houses in the area with a sea view.

The room we had is a twin room with bathroom, shower, hairdryer, tv and mini fridge stocked with water, soft drinks and beer charged at the going rate. The shower is a good size and we were able to have two showers a day with no hot water problems as is sometimes the case in the morning in Turkey, relying on the solar panels to heat the water during the day. The beds were very comfy and there was no extra charge for the air conditioning. Rooms are cleaned on a daily basis as are the towels. Safe deposit box is available at the cost of around 3tl a day.

Breakfast is typically Turkish with a selection of cereals, bread, jam, honey, eggs, beans, cheese and meats along with tea, coffee and juice. Occasionally they may cook an omelette or sausages.

Dinner is buffet style and of a reasonable variety with a daily choice of soup, meat dishes, salads and deserts such as baklava. Monday night is barbecue night with grilled fish, chicken and Turkish meatballs. There is also a bar menu if you feel hungry throughout the day.

The hotel operates a card tab system to pay for drinks or extra food if you wish to use it. We decided to pay for our drinks as we did not want to run up a huge tab! A bottle of Efes beer will cost you 8.50tl, a botlle of wine 33tl.

Entertainment is every night at 9.30pm with songs for the kids first and then a variety act such as breakdancing, belly dancing, bingo, karaoke and Turkish night.

The hotel has two swimming pools with water slide and volleyball. There is also a pool table for those who fancy a game.

You can also take advantage of the Turkish bath and spa, which my wife did and found it absolutely fantastic.

You may want to take home some of the memories of your stay by asking the hotel photographer Baki to put together a photo album for you.

We were very happy to watch the world cup final on one of the biggest cinema screens I have seen in a hotel - result!

Hotel staff are friendly and polite adding to the overall enjoyment of our holiday.

Now I know what you are thinking - this hotel sounds too good to be true. Well, if I had to find one fault with this hotel, and it is in my opinion the only fault, they need to cover up some of the food at breakfast and dinner but especially breakfast. The cooked meats and cheese were exposed to the flies - and there are I assure you flies. After saying that, this did not in any way spoil our holiday.

This is the only fault I could find in what was in my opinion a lovely holiday in a lovely hotel with lovely people in a lovely town.

Me and my wife have just returned home after 2 great weeks at hotel club lion . What can I say other than a good well run hotel, clean, good food and value for money.
The pool is great and plenty of sun beds!
Ken & Aj and others who help them both run the entertainment programme work long hours to keep you entertained to the best of their ability ! We stopped for 2 weeks and only went out into kusadasi 3 times as we loved stopping at the hotel on an evening and watching the scheduled entertainment . The kids mini disco is fun to watch and both AJ and ken try hard to involve all the kids.
Wel done to those two and the bar staff who all made our 2 weeks very enjoyable, especially Sam.
Hope to return very soon !
