Stayed in this hotel for a week and had a good time. Good food, clean rooms and very nice staff.

We also met someone of Murphys staff and provided us with a nice meal at their restaurant in town. Cocktail happy hour all the time!!

Just returned from a superb family holiday, Guests are 50% Turkish, 40% Eastern European (Romania, Bulgaria, Russian) and then about 10% English, French, German. If your after Blackpool with sun, with a cooked English breakfast and sausage and mash every night this is not for you - stick to Benidorm. Its an international hotel with a good mix of clientele. Not a Pri-marni shopper in sight which was good if you wanted a break from the chav brigade

Food - decent breakfasts with usual omelettes / fried eggs, fruit, cereals, croissants etc
Lunch multiple salads, hot dishes
plus a good range of other snack bars until about 4pm ( burgers, kebab, chips)
Ice cream 4pm - 6pm superb for kids and big kids
Plenty of water machines, coffee points around

We went to the beach / caribean bar for lunch a few times sometimes good, other times freezing cold food- how can you serve cold fries! just lazy cooking.

Evening buffet not bad some people do take large plates and just waste food. Both the Tex Mex (better than TGI's) and Italian provided superb meals on A l Carte options. .

Few bars in the evening to keep the drinks flowing. Barman ( EGE in the Sky Bar) absolutely superb, offered range of cocktails and makes sure your glass is always topped up - good with the kids to and good range of non alcoholic cocktails for them. Bar staff will engage in conversation if you try.Bar service a bit hit an miss in some bars, no order on when you get served, and it seems only the English had any manners

Smoking around pool and bars very common, it does take some getting used to.

Entertainment not bad - during day by the pool or evening kept our kids entertained ( aged 11 -14). Fred the entertainer does need to change his v tight shorts occasionally !! Photographer walk around with T shirt with rude slogan, very classy especially as he works with kids

Rooms good we had a room on the 6th floor, excellent views and decent maid service. When we arrived we did have a foldaway bed that was broken but quickly replaced by reception. TV had no English channels - disappointment as a lot of hotels have at least English films

Reception attentive and helpful, lady on guest relations good - see her to book a l carte dining

Need to watch some people taking glasses to the pool are so wear something on your feet as a number of broken glass incidents (down to parents giving their kids a glass by the pool)

Beach area not golden sands but nice spot, silent area if you want to get away from it all . Shame all the free water sports (kayak etc were broken)

Plenty of sunbeds but sometimes limited towels, strange as they had 4 people on towel duty but several days towel came out and gone within 5 mins, bring you own towel if you want to reserve a sunbed.

Tennis courts and table tennis table but bring your own equipment and pool table but only had 4 balls

Room service good, regular supply of towels and rooms left in good condition.

Shops 5 mins walk away offer usual mix of T shirts, watches,electronic gear. or take the number 5 bus to the port for a wider selection.

We did have an issue with the on site medical centre. One of our children cut his toe / bit of blood next thing whisked off to the nearby clinic, total lack of English spoken, After 10 min he retuned with a 50p plaster amazingly the staff became very fluent in English when speaking to the insurance company to try and claim £80.

We flew into Bodrum so 1.45mins transfer try for the closer Izmir airport

Overall decent resort, minor niggles but well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 5 /6 floors blocks B/C for the better views. Ground floor no view and clos...

For a 4 stars hotels, the facilities are good. Varied food and each evening have different themes. Take care to ask reservation for dedicated restaurants at arriving because you can have the surprise to not be available during your accommodation.
The staff is friendly.
A real problem is the parking: too small related the number of rooms. It is possible to park around 30 cars and the resort has around 300 rooms.
The room was good. All rooms have view to sea. A little discomfort it is the fact that the all the power plug are functional only when the card is putt in the special support. The fridge has no power when you left the room. Also, if you not close the balcony door, the air conditioning doesn't work.
The beach is small but sufficient. The beach has sand, artificial landscaping.
When you arrive, take care to ask at front desk the card for daily towels for outside. One card per person. Nobody will tell about this.
Also, daily, verify the restaurants and bars program because, sometimes, they change the opening and closing hours.
If you want to go into the city, you can take Dolmus (small bus) in front of the gate resort for 2.25 liras per person. If you want to take one from the way, only make a sign with hand.
If you want to take a walk in the evening, you can go down for 100m to seafront.
The resort has a shop but prices are medium. You can found a small general store at 40 m down from the resort.
The resort has 2 swimming pool, medium related the number of person that can stay in the resort.
Some evening have live music.
The resort is preferred by families with children.

Room Tip: all the rooms are similar

We have just returned from the grand blue sky moscow sorry kusadasi...a fair review would be the hotel is average..food is ok if u like eating chicken every night..drinks are average...but the major issue is this hotel is massively populated by russians.i have never seen people so rude and who waste food just for sake of it...the entertainment is not for british..there are insufficient towels for guests and insufficient tables in relation to guests...going to holiday in red square next year will be quieter than here

We stayed in this hotel for 9 nights. Everything was great: facilities -swimming pools, beach, restaurants, entertainments, food, drinks etc,,,,
Staff very nice, friendly -the only problem is-the most of them can't speak English ( it is pity because it would be nice to have a chat with them and tell them how good they are). Animators Ajca and Ismail -great!!! Cleaners are doing great job. Girls and boys at restaurants - very nice, friendly, hard working.
The only problem we had was with staff/Manager at reception. We booked accommodation through OTTI Travel in November last year, payed 50% to them, received voucher and checked validity of booking few times prior arrivals with the hotel Everything was confirmed.
After very long flight we arrived late in the evening at the hotel.
We have been shocked when "The Manager" at the reception told us that our booking was cancelled !!??? He blamed our travel agency and advised me to call them (at 9 PM !!)
I was lucky that I had all conversation (emails) with travel agency and hotel printed and brought with me. I have presented all those documents to him and it took him almost 2 hours to sort out this mess and give us a room. (Room was very nice but we can't forget stress that we went through).
My advice is: Double check your booking and have everything in writing !!!
Very nice hotel and our holiday was beautiful.

18th August - 28th August 10 nights, Me the bride and 8 & 10 year old daughters.(room 1605) Purely spectacular holiday, Beautiful hotel, massive rooms, private beach, 2 big pools, 1 kiddy pool, Loungers a plenty, (if none free the life guards will provide more and fit you in around the pool) bars everywhere, outside and inside (air conditioned) massive balcony. I liked the fact that the safety of the balconies, this was paramount for the kids, the balconies are all set back so there is no shear drop, all rooms are sea view, cleaned every day, Pool towels provided, plenty of towels in the bathroom, safe in the room for 4 euros. 2 minutes away from the hotel is a place called "Ladies beach" dont get excited!!! its not full of ladies but is a beauriful front of shops bars and water sports about a mile long. You can also get a boat trip to a Greek island for 15 Euros each and is only 30mins away. Private beach has water sports and the pedalos are free, we never waited to use them any longer than 5 minutes. sea is very clear and very warm. Hotel food is varied, fresh and something for everyone. Really loved the place, we will defenitely be going back!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are sea view so any room you have is a great view. we had a standard double which all have...
