“Enjoyable stay thanks to the pools, food and accomodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We rolled up two days later than expected but we received a warm welcome by the reception staff in the early hours after a long transfer from Bodrum. Staff appeared to know about our predicament and were ready for our arrival. We were quickly whisked to our room by golf buggy and enjoyed our first nights sleep in a spacious two bedroom apartment overlooking the sea. The first signs were good.

The complex has a selection of clean pools and bars. It caters for all - inc Relax pool for quieter times, Activity Pool for organised games, Slides with attentive life guard, Family pool with canopy for toddlers. We are not early risers so were hunting sunbeds after 9am each morning but we were always able to find enough at the pool of choice each day (and we tried them all during our stay). Yes the use of drinking out of plastic cups was not ideal but I think this was to reduce the risk of broken glass in the pool areas.

Food at the main Sunset Restaurant was plentiful with lots of choice. Don't be expecting lots of English food (although Chips were a feature every night) but we enjoyed the show cooking including stir fry's, casseroles, soups, vegetables and deserts. We helped ourselves to drinks although some enjoyed waiter service at the table. Fresh orange juice a Breakfast was an extra one Euro. The sunset in an evening was spectacular and normally coincided with our attendance in the restaurant. We did not use any of the A La Carte restaurants as they were booked up when we tried to make reservations. (Top tip - book well in advance).
However food quality at the snack bars was poor. Burgers, nuggets, breaded chicken were all tasteless and obviously reheated. The Turkish Pita (pizza) was better but you had to wait in line for some time as it was cooked from fresh and each serving was quickly taken by the first one or two in the queue, who tended to take away enough to feed the 5000 - either limit the amount taken by each person or speed up the production. The Turkish pancakes made by the ladies by the pool areas were very tasty but once again they were made fresh and too many people were taking 3 or 4 at a time.

We did have some concerns that we shared with the hotel in a feedback form, which included lack of comfy seating at the main bar in the evening, but would also add that the evening entertainment in the auditorium started too late at 10pm. 9pm would have suited us better. Much of the entertainment programme did not excite us. Some of the music acts in the bar in an evening were second rate (the only one of note was the guitarist and saxophone player). I will also mention the 80's and 90's night which did make us smile for the wrong reasons - it started with songs from two 1970's films followed by a mix of Bill Haley hits, a solitary 80's song then salsa & belly-dancing display and a disco to Turkish music - not am 80's band in sight.

The beach was not up to standard though, especially when you consider it is a Beach Club. It needs cleaning of the seaweed more often and the surrounding areas were full of rubble and pipe-works. The water was lovely and clear. A little more effort would improve the experience.

Overall we had a great stay, using the Gym on a daily basis. The bus stop (and taxi rank) were right outside the hotel entrance which made travelling around much easier. The bus cost less than £1 each way to Kusadasi - a great place to go for a drink, meal (would recommend Planet Yucca and Murphy's Bar) or shopping.

Worthy of its 4 star rating, but no more.

Room Tip: We had a two bedroom family room with a sea view and were overlooking the sea. Blocks 4100 4200 and...

This hotel is so clean the staff are friendly and helpful. We have just returned after a week here with our two kids aged 11 and 9. Food isn't great but standard for all inclusive Plus some lovely reasonable restaurants a short walk away. The slides are great fun for all the family. Would recommend for sure.

We have just returned from the best family holiday we have every had. Everything was perfect. The family room with a sea view was large, spacious and comfortable and worked so well with the children and my partner and I having our own space, but all within one suite. We were initially worried it would be noisy as we were placed right by the Amphitheatre, but we had such a wonderful time that the children never went to bed before all the shows finished anyway so it was not a problem. A typical day went like so - up for breakfast in the buffet restaurant (fairly good choice) overlooking the bright blue sky and enjoying the wonderful sea view, a day based by the activity pool which was never dull but wandering to one of the other four pools when the mood took us (the children enjoyed the slides and the resort was so safe and friendly they would take themselves off there), lunch either back in the buffet restaurant or at the pool or beach bar which served great snacks from midday to 5pm (maybe squeezing in a Turkish pancake or some Pide, which were delicious wood fired oven cooked mini pizzas mid afternoon), a wonderful evening meal watching spectacular sunsets everynight in either the buffet restaurant or an A la Carte (we sampled the Italian, the Chinese and the Turkish - all were good) and then we would enjoy some of the entertainment provided by the animation team. So....onto the animation team......they made our holiday! They were a wonderful, friendy group of people who worked so hard to make everyone's holidays so enjoyable. They were not overbearing and would happily take a "no" if you did not want to join in anything. But by the end of the holiday the children knew them all by name and were happy to jump up on the stage and join them in the fun games and dances. They were all fantastic and a special thank you must go to Mero, Emre, Pikachu, Mamooch and espciallyKaan - who adored them all. They were all always smiling and would give time to everyone chatting by the pool and posing for photographs when asked. We thought the entertainment was of a high standard - they have some serious talent within the team. We were very, very sad to leave - and wished our ten day stay could have been longer. We thought the holiday was great value for money and would love to return (maybe when my own children have secured a job within the amination team as is they current desire!). Thank you to all the staff for a magical holiday.

Room Tip: Seaview is worth the extra money but ask to be on first or second floor as the ground floor rooms di...

Dear Guest,

Thanks a lot for taking the time to leave your feedback.
Perhaps what is most reassuring to read is that we clearly maintain the levels of product and service over the years.
We do offer a high quality hotel experience - but it is the personality and friendliness of the staff that goes to make our guests' visits all that more special.
Hope that you will be able to come and see us again at some point.
Kind Regards

We had a lovely vacation! The hotel was very nice. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. (We were near to activity pool.) Every evening we watched beautiful sunsets from the restaurant and it was very romantic. We tasted the cuisine of all restaurants and they were very delicious! The customer service was excellent! Thanks to Ugur and Ahmed.
The espresso was amazing at the lobby bar!!
All day and evening we had a very fun time with the animation team- Mitcho, Shery, Marina, Kaan, Mero... thank you all - we love you!!!
Everything was so good but we needed of entertainment after 24h. Then the bar and the music finished. This place was perfect for family with children but we were without ours. Next time we going to this hotel with them.

arrived late at night and was handed a not very fresh roll, nowhere else avaliable to get anything to eat. first impressions of hotel grounds were good nice and tidy. we had booked a standard room but given a family room(5805) had a bottle of wine and fruit basket on arrival, all in all it was more than adequate for 2 adults and 1 child. fresh towels everyday and the cleaners came in every day. beds were ok but sheets were really itchy. shower was quite nice. of all thr meals breakfast was the worse in my opinion defo catered for other nationalities more than british, lunch and dinner were about the same always something edible but not great, apart from the fresh bread that was cooked, bloody gorgeous. major downside were the cats wondering in and out of the restaurant. i cant comment on the kids club or other entertainment as we didnt use them, for me 9pm is a bit late for a childrens disco that only lasts 30 mins, but from other guests we were friendly with we didnt miss anything special. then funfair was ok but if youve got a daredevil child its all a bit slow motion. the pools were clean and not overly busy you could always get a sunbed even if you went out after lunch. the beach was ok,lost of rubbish a ciggie ends but it killed 2 hours of someting diffferent. tried to get our free turkish bath but the man just tried to push all the other services 60 euro for a massage, when we said we only wanted the free he did get a tad rude and made up reasons why we couldnt have one, i for example have a scar on my arm so i couldnt have one, baffling! there a a few shops just outside the complex and to the left up a slight hill, is ok for litlle bit of tat 2 tl for magnets and things but if you want the clothes/bags you gotta haggle hard as the sellers really want your hard earned cash haha, i manaed to get a bag for 15tl originally was asking 80tl!! in most of the shops things are priced in euro and when we said lira price was generally x3. overall we had a good time and would return, and i would reccomend if you can get a decent price!

Room Tip: we asked for pool view ground floor and got a family room
