We got married in Swissotel Grand Efes Izmir on December 2008. Given that our wedding took place during a hectic month of holidays, and right before the New Year's, our experience was excellent. The staff was very professional, helpful and kind. Our wedding was an event of 800+ guests and I was kind of worried about the service and the dinner buffets being overcrowded. However, my guests let me know on many occasions that the food was wonderful and there was never a huge line at the buffets since the hotel made sure to have plenty of buffets. The tables and serving dishes were never empty.
The wedding lasted till the early hours of the morning and the staff did not cease to help the accomodation of the guests. Also our stay at the hotel was a memorable one given the view from our room and the comfortable facilities.
I also used the spa on a couple of occasions and liked it very much. I highly recommend Swissotel for anyone who's planning an extravagant event i.e. wedding, conference, etc. or a weekend getaway.
