We stayed in the Kustur club for 2 weeks, last week of August and first week sept. We are a family of 3, our daughter was 3 years old. We met up with another couple with children around the same age and had a great time.
We arrived in Bodrum and it is about 2hours on the bus to get to the resort-.(we found out later we could of flown to ismir which is half hours drive away.)
The room was probably better than we expected- we had been warned that 5 star in Turkey is not our 5 star standards.
The room was small, with 2 beds put together and a little put up bed. It had air con and TV with some english channels, a mini bar for outside the all inclusive hours(we had no reason to use this) there was no bath -only a shower- but hot water and bedding and towels changed daily.
The first day we got up quite early and went for a look around- I could not believe it that before 8 am EVERY bed by the pool had a towel on it and there was not a soul about. It was even more annoying that some of ones that had put the towels on the beds early did not actually use them before midday! It was peak season so we soon learned that you had to get up before 7 am if you wanted a sun lounger and earlier if you wanted on around the childrens pool.
The pool itself was great, - the slides come on 10.30 - 1.00 & 2.00 - 4.00ish and at first we wondered why they were not on all the time- we soon realised this was probably a good thing- the little one was on them constantly the whole time they were on so it was nice to have a break from going up and down the steps!
The main pool was very busy and a little noisy , music all day and the entertainment team around trying to get everyone involved in the games. if you say 'no' they don't bother you again. if you want peace and quiet there is a quiet pool which has a self service bar and snacks/rolls. The main pool bar was busy ad sometimes took a while to get served
There are toilets by the pool which are cleaned frequently, if you want beach towels you have to ask- as it was peak time if you wanted to change them it had to be early in the morning or they run out.
There is a private beach with water sports, we only used this a few times as our little girl preferred the pool.
There were a number of places to eat- the main buffet resteraunt which also had barbacue/ grill. at the back, a poolside snack bar, various al carte resteraunts which you could reserve (we used the turkish on which was lovely and quiet in the evening and also there is one overlooking the beach- breakfast here was lovely- sometimes it was nice just to sit and be waited on rather than the main buffet which was quite busy. The food was good and you could always make a meal, the deserts were a bit hit and miss- looked nicer than they tasted.
We booked a couple of trips (don't book wih the rep they are a rip off) they give wrong advice- we booked the dolphine park with another family with young children and was told it would be great for them- it wasn't suitable at all .The trip is only the entry price and a light lunch- when you get in there everything is extra- you even have to pay to watch the dolphin show.
If you walk out of the main gates and 2 minutes up the road, there was a place selling all trips much cheaper and he was really honest- we booked a boat trip and the water park with him and enjoyed them both(can't remember which water park we went - there are 2, if you tell him what you want he'l advize which one is best and it doesn't take long to get to either.
The bus service stops right outside the gates, and it's very cheap. We caught it into Kusadasi a couple of times and to the market this is worth a visit if you like cheap genuine fakes.
The entertainment team are young and they try very hard, there is a mini disco from 9pm ish for about half hour, the same songs and dances but keeps kids entertained. there is a kids club in the day but we did not use ths so we can't comment. The play area was small with a couple of slides and swings.
The evening entertainment was okay- some nights better than others.
The ampletheatre only serves 2 drinks -alcohlic and non alcoholic cocktails, we used to have a drink by the pool bar on the way past and take one with us.
The Havana nightclub was across the road, we didn't go but others said it was okay- we coldn't hear it from where we were so it didn't bother us.
There is a hairdresser and small shop - which sells newspapers, general items and ice creams as these do no come all inclusive.
There is also a photographer on site and takes photos throughout the day and their put on the board with no obligation to buy, you an also book him in the evening, he takes you down the beach and does family sunset photos etc which we had and they were lovely.
We would return to Kustur for holidays in the future.
