“Wonderful Sealight”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

I have never written a review of anything before but certainly think Sealight deserved my attention! It was everything I thought it would be, no hidden charges, nice beer, nice wine, good cocktails, great coffee, food in the buffet was really nice, food in the ala carte restaurants was great, service all round fab. Rooms were lovely although we were put in a no smoking room (didn't see any option to pick anything other than a room when booking) they changed it with no trouble the next day after arrival.
Private beach is big enough (free sunbeds) and the beach bar just up a couple of flights of steps serves gorgeous pizza and pasta dishes. The bread the old lady makes in the beach hut is also really nice. I found it perfect and had zero complaints, okay the gym is a bit pants but I was glad, an excuse not to bother ;-). Watch out for the boat trip though that the first choice rep sells think it was called the deluxe boat trip, they will try and rip you off if you want alcoholic drinks.

Room Tip: If your a smoker as for a smoking room they won't even let you smoke on the balcony if its a non...

We stayed in SEALIGHT for a week from 26th June 2014 . The room were cleaned every day in good way all towels and napkins were changed. The indoor pool was so clean and calm .The outdoor pool had two part one by salt water another by sweet water, but the beach of hotel was hilarious , it was so beautiful and the best place for taking sunbathing . There were alotof intertainment in that beach they were amusing.
Hotel had 3 outdoor bar and one indoor bar. The quality of drinks were great and we could find whatever you want. The indoor bar was opened whole nights and the bartender was so friendly and fast and professional.
But in my opinion the amazing part of hotel was the night view beside the outdoor pool was same as masterpiece it was so romantic , staying there till sunrises, finally if you want to be in KUSADASI , won't miss it .................

Room Tip: room by pool sea view is good.

is was our first time in Turkey, so we only booked a week as we were worried it wasn't for us... Biggest mistake ever! The only regret was not staying longer!
The transfer was over an hour long from airport, but this gave us a chance to look at how beautiful the area is... The hour goes quick, and the hotel is worth it.

We got checked in really quickly and our luggage was taken up to our room. We arrived late at night and was glad the the hotel offer soup and pasta from 11-5am. Which came useful most nights!

Our room was lovely... We were in the 5th floor and the views are stunning! We highly recommend getting a sea view. The room was cleaned and hoovered every day with fresh towels and stocked up minibar with soft drinks... The cleaner always did a fantastic job, the room looked brand new every day! We were always greeted with a smile when passing her in the corridor too, which was lovely.

The hotel itself is beautiful, clean and has lots of places to enjoy your day and night. The winter terrace garden has amazing views of the sun set each night... And the girls at the bar are lovely!
The light house pub was cosy and Ozay made us feel at home. He is very quiet, but we loved him! Always happy and does his best to make sure you have everything... He always remembered our drinks order and brought them to our table without asking. Fantastic!
The lobby is great in the evening, with live piano and violin before dinner... Which was beautiful. The coffee is nice, the sofas are comfortable and the service is great from the waitresses.
We didn't go around the pool bar at night as it had poor lighting and my partner can't see in poor light, which was annoying for us.. But we watched the entertainment from either the pub balcony or the winter garden, which was fine for us.
The food in the main restaurant is amazing! All day, every day... There wasn't anything we didn't like, and the salad selection is huge!
We tried the Dolce Vita restaurant which was divine! And our waiter was a young lad, who was new and his first day... He was so attentive and helpful! Great service.
We also tried the kebab restaurant... The meat was mouth watering! Lovely food, but a shame there's no inside seating or at least umbrellas to give shade. We were left in the hot sun feeling very uncomfortable... Lots of customers were feeling this way. But once again, the food and service was fantastic!
Drinks are good... Wine is fantastic. Beer is Tuborg which was nice.
Also the food at the beach and pool bars are amazing. You will NEVER be hungry at this hotel I promise!
Overall this hotel has been outstanding. We have a rule when we book holidays that we don't book the same place twice, so we get to explore different countries, hotels etc.
But we both agreed this is a hotel we would return to! There is so much to do in kusadasi also... We feel like a week is not long enough to explore this beautiful place!

I would highly recommend this hotel. But the only thing we would complain about ( and it's not too bad) is the lighting at night. As it is hard to see, and even when you're at the other bars the lighting is low and makes you feel sleepy.
Also we found the animation to be boring. Doing the same each day at the same time. The evening is better though.

Thank you to ALL of the staff... You made our holiday perfect :-)

Holiday with Thomson! Greeted by them and directed to our buses, very clear and professional, and cheerful as always! Our rep at the hotel was great too! First impressions were very good! Very spacious lobby, fast check in (only one room card given). Our suitcases were brought up by the staff - nice touch! Room was fairly big, shower and bath together, balcony furniture had seen better days. Air conditioning was a bit confusing, spent about 30mins trying to get it to work, only then to phone reception and got told the balcony door needs to be closed for aircon to work!! We got it working, only to find it not blowing much air and not cooling the room down.

Pool.
Best thing about the hotel! - you had the salt water pool (smaller) and the normal one. Which was very shallow one side of the bridge, and deeper on the other!

Food!
Food was average! Don't expect an english breakfast though. Highlights of breakfast was doughnuts, pancakes, and the omelette. Not much queues if you got the timing right! Lunch, was a bit more busy, so mostly had food by the pool bar, which was again, average fast food type! Dinner in the buffet was okay, few choices, but a bit repetitive! We found ourselves constantly searching for a table that actually has cutlery on, and didn't have any used plates on it allready. Staff didn't seem to bother with the guests. As I went up to get a drink from the restaurant bar for my girlfriend and myself, he asked us where was our table, so I pointed to it, and he tells me to go sit down and someone will come to you, he came to us when we had allready finished our food, this occured many times. As an all inclusive they might be better with the soft drinks machine usable for guests without someone manning them so you could help yourself - suggestion for sealight????????????????????

During the day
Entertainment was probably between 10-12.30 and 14.30-1700ish. Some were okay, but they constantly played loud music, and comment on whatever game was getting played on a microphone so EVERYONE would hear it. Surely whoever has not got involved, is not interested in what is going on??????? Animation crew tried us a few times to get involved, but then left us alone after the 4th time of trying to get us involved.

Evening entertainement.
We only went to see the fire show, which was really good, live music at the poolside bar was good sometimes too.

Location.
It is not isolated! about 10min walk and youre at ladies beach where you will find lots of restaurant and bars - mostly irish bars.
Kusadasi is about 15min on the dolmus, and 5min back. This cost us 8 liras alltogether, which is about £2? V.cheap

Waterpark
We went to the waterpark - about 20min bus journey, very good and enjoyable! Definitely recommend this as a day out.

Staff at reception wasn't much help, if you had a question they'd look back quite blank towards you - so I dont think their english is up to scratch to be able to deal with english guests queries?

There is an indoor pool, which we found out on the last day! We would have used this between 5-6 daily if we had known.

So an average hotel, if taking everything into consideration - staff could be more cheerful and helpful by either serving drinks as soon as you sit down and not when you had finished your food, or have a self service soft drink machine for guests to use! Beautiful sunsets, like most places abroad!

And an information pack in the room would be VERY helpful! - and not just information on all inclusive that you receive when you arrive.

We won't be rushing back to sealight anytime soon, allthough enjoyed the area and the tan that we got, and the pool area!

Dear Guest,
First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to share your oppinions about our hotel. Secondly I would like to mention that The Sealight Resort Hotel is an environmentally sensitive management, thats why in all of our rooms and general areas electricity, water, etc. are working with energy safe sensors and recycleable power, thats why you needed to close the balcony door for getting your Air Conditioner to work (which is a split one). By the way you could ask reception for another room card, my colegues speaks and understands English (but not if you were speaking very fast with your British accent ;)
About our restaurants I can say that we are serving superior service, and thats why we ask our guests not to have their meal by rushing around, and thank you for your suggestions the management will concider them. Our entertainment style is ‘soft’. We are a resort which presents entertainment services to both of our guests who wish to rest, and those who are looking for entertainment, within the same hotel, but in different locations. Thats also why they have asked you and tried to involve but then left you enjoy your holiday.
At last about information as you told your self, while your check-in my friends inform you and handle you in your language (English, German, Turkish, Russian, Dutch or French) an information brochure where you could read every detail about our services and concept, even the rooms and pools details such as; how much spuare meter and time tabels about all our restaurants and bars working hours!
Also according to your review, I'm truely sorry that we have left such an impression on you! We train our staff to be friendly and as accommodating as is possible, and I apologize that the staff member was unable to meet your expectations.
Your satisfaction is important to us and we hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience.
Sincerely,
Guest Relations Service

This hotel has great facilities, nice rooms and a superb turkish kitchen. BUT what a mess they make from it: the personel is so unfriendly, exhausted, performs automatically like robots and has no clue whatsoever of any etiquette. If you have a particular question their standard answer is an unfriendly "no". No big smile as we have experienced it before in many Turkish hotels or restaurants whatever category they have.

Tables are permanently dirty and some facilities and terraces urgently need refurbishment. We never experienced such an unfriendly bar personnel. Restaurant service e.g. to get a drink is poor and understaffed. The service is run by the same number of people including lots of students as there are managers running around that do nothing to help customers. We have only seen F&B-managers in the restaurant greeting each other exuberantly but not a word or a greeting to their customers ...

On arrival end of June the hotel was crowded with 80% Russians. Drinking, shouting and commanding at the personnel. This might be the reason why the personnel is unfriendly to other people. Anyhow, as a hotel you have to know what you want. A good mix of all kind of people is a necessity for a good atmosphere. If you want to stuff it with Russians to win money, than expect these kind of reviews.

Animators are very friendly and active but the whole day as from 10am untill 23.30 pm there is loud noise everywhere outside. Games with limited number of people are loudly broadcasted around the pool. Evening shows are so loud that thay even hurted adults ears. Let alone kids ears ...

This is not our idea of a good holiday. But if all this doesn't bother you at all, then don't hesitate to go there !

PS: A word of thanks to the friendly manager Mustafa who was confronted with our complaints and did everything he could to make us comfortable. We hope he can achieve anything with the comments he received from us so they can make a real nice hotel from this place which is worth its stars.
