Club Adakoy Resort Hotel

Reviewed 1 November 2013

When we arrived at Dalaman Airport, the Neilson's Rep could not find us on his paperwork, even though we had upgraded to 'Platinum Service!' He panicked and shoved us in a local taxi. We got no Welcome Pack and no info about the sign-up meeting the following day. As a result we almost missed getting on the dinghy sailing course and our complimentary massage treatments (which we had already paid for!). We met another couple who had gone there specifically to do dinghy sailing but were told there were no places for them! So be careful. You might think you are going dinghy sailing, but Neilson's may have other ideas.........................

Admin and Activity Management was poor. Sailing instruction was by local guys who just wanted to have fun and entertain us, rather than teach us how to sail to RYA standards.
We have learned to sail with Neilson's years ago, so we know they used to be able to do it properly. There was a lack of management supervision.

Beach supervision was also poor. On occasions there was no safety boat on the water. One afternoon we waited 20 mins for the safety boat to come and fix our sail which had been wrongly rigged. These are safety issues you will want to consider carefully.

After our dinghy sailing week, we did one week learning to sail yachts. We began on a seaworthy yacht but this was taken away from us and after a lot of time wasted we were given one on which the winches did not work properly. In fact we put to sea in this and had to turn back. We learned that the seaworthy yacht had been given to a couple who were going flotilla sailing. Talk about being treated as second class citizens!

The hotel management and catering were excellent and the hotel staff friendly. Our yacht instructor (Judd) was excellent. But we left with the feeling that the admin and activity management was slack and sloppy and we were not well looked after for our 'Platinum Service' premium.

Good luck!

Room Tip: Dont choose a room facing the beach bar if you like peace and quiet.

We took our 6 year old daugther in the October half term and all three of us had an altogether fantastic time.

ALL the staff were fantastic. I'm not going to single out names as it would be unfair to anyone who didn't get a mention. The atmosphere of the staff was laid back and good fun, the activities (all included in the price) were well run, could be as intense or sedate as you liked and the kids clubs seemed very popular amongst the vast majority of children in the resort.

Accomodation was basic but comfortable. We were busy all the time anyway so it didn't matter as all we did was literally sleep and bathe in the apartment. Plenty of scope to lounge about the pool or by the sea if that is your thing. Weather was excellent as it was cool enough at night to sleep well but still hot and sunny in the day.

As a big bonus we saw a seal whilst we were paddle boarding, something the staff said was a very rare occurrence!

We've never done the same holiday twice but are seriously considering it as we all had such a great time.

We had a week's flotilla sailing from Neilson in Adakoy. A group of 6 of us had a Beneteau 373, a comfortable boat that handled very well. We were all rusty sailors so we asked for a skipper for the first 3 days and Neilson allocated Mike to us, to show us the ropes.
The area we sailed in was quiet, very calm and really beautiful. Nights were spent on restaurant's moorings. Food was good and Turkish chefs coped well with my gluten free diet. Swimming in the crystal clear waters was delightful. Sailing in October meant the days were sunny and the nights cool so it was possible to sleep comfortably on board.
A very good introduction to a Flotilla holiday, if you want better winds though this area of Turkey is not for you.

I was slightly nervous leaving sunsail after many great holidays with them, so I had some concerns that neilson wouldn't be as good, nothing could he further than the truth why?

*staff were approachable funny and helpful, nothing was a problem
*the club resort although small is well run, all clean, professional and customer focused
*beautiful location and a bit quirky on an island, needing a small ferry
*after the commercial, un personal re it's size and chaotic gocek marina, very pleasant to see a small and family feel to the marina
*the yachts were all almost relatively new.
*flotilla itinerary was really interesting taking in some lovely spots, the coastline revealed some picture post card stops for a lunch anchor
*finally the lead boat crew ed, mike & steve really made the difference, of course it's their jobs, but they go beyond that, you can see they love doing what they do, which ensures you do.

Acid test would I go again with them? already booked for May.

A superb holiday

A fantastic time had by all and I was surprised to find myself joining in with all the activities. I had principally booked the holiday for our 2 teenage children, who had the time of their lives - in fact, we barely saw them all week. The Neilson staff were excellent and were generally very helpful in all areas.

We could have done with patio heaters in the beach bar and more pillows and blankets in the rooms during October as it got quite cold in the evenings and early mornings.

We will probably return next October.

Just returned from Adakoy. We did the same trip this time last year and cannot fault it either time. Staff, facilities, safety and no hidden extras unlike our poor Mark Warner experience earlier this summer. Cannot recommend enough!

We did the flotilla holiday the second week of October with 2 children and had a great time. The boat was virtually brand new, spacious and spotless - the shower was the best I've ever seen on a boat.
Grant the lead boat skipper was brilliant and entertained our kids every evening, they loved him. Food at all the tavernas was excellent - lots of barbecued freshly caught fish and freshly baked bread in the mornings.
We were also lucky with the weather so although it was a bit chilly the first day it warmed up as the week went on...
We went to some beautiful remote bays and swam in crystal clear water and the kids loved it.
Will definitely go sailing with Neilson again in the future!!
