“Adakoy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Small intimate resort. Fantastic for waterskiing, great for sailing, cycling, tennis is a hoot. Boat trips and dinghy sailing all day. Food delicious, rooms comfortable. Staff lovely. This a good way to holiday if you like lots of action, buffet food and inclusive options. No, you do not have to be an expert, you can learn to waterski, sail, play tennis, windsurf, or just chill by the pool and have a drink at the bar, just sign up when you arrive at no extra cost! Can hop on the ferry to Marmaris for meals out on nights not included in club board. I went a a single traveller...they looked after me!

We had a fantastic two weeks at Adakoy and would love to come back for another two!

The trip started well with British Airways flights from Heathrow, good legroom, meals and drinks included and smiling cabin crew. The transfer from Dalaman to Adakoy was about an hour and half and then onto the Neptune Star for our boat transfer to the Island where the Adakoy resort is located. You do arrive after 10pm but at the end of your holiday you have nearly a full day in resort before you leave - so that's fair enough.

We had paid a bit extra for a room in the sea facing block and it was worth the extra pennies. We had an upstairs room and a nice balcony. The rooms are not five star but then they aren't just basic either. For the amount of time you will probably spend in the room it's probably just about right. Although the mattresses could be a little bit softer as others have noted. This didn't stop us from sleeping though, as we were too tired out from all the activities! The bathroom had a shower only but it was a good one and we had no trouble with hot water or water pressure. There was plenty of storage in the room and also an in-room safe, hairdryer and fridge.

The pool at Adakoy is really good for swimming, it doesn't have a shallow end and is about 1.45cm deep throughout. This makes touching the bottom for shorties (like me) a bit of a problem, but Neilson provided ready access to floats and noodles for any kids (or adults!) that needed them. The pool area catches the sun all day and is just a really nice place to chill out.

Both the pool bar and beach bars had excellent staff and by the end of our stay they knew our room number off by heart (am I proud or embarrassed by this?!).

There is one restaurant on site with several different seating areas (some adults only). Food is served here for breakfast and lunch and in the evenings on the 'inclusive' nights. We found the food to be excellent and you would need to be really fussy not to find something you like. On non-inclusive nights you can still eat at the restaurant where they have an 'a la carte' menu for the night. The food was pretty good on the 'a la carte' night we stayed there for, but the service was a bit hap hazard.

Getting the water taxi to Marmaris for non-inclusive nights is a must-do at least once during your stay. We ate at 'Dede' and 'Bono' restaurants and the food and drinks were excellent. Other guests also recommended 'Demir' and 'Ney' - but we didn't have enough time to try them all. Marmaris and Icemeler are where the remainder of the hotels and restaurants in the area are located (as Adakoy is totally on its own - bliss!). We took the opportunity to go on a guided bike ride along the promenade between Marmaris and Icemeler and it was a really great way to get around and see the sights.

The activities available at Adakoy are varied and there should be something for everyone to do. We had a go at stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkelling, fitness classes, the spa, volleyball, water polo, aqua aerobics, cycling and tennis. Instruction was excellent and the equipment is in very good condition and is well maintained. As Adakoy is quite a small resort it makes squeezing in more and more activities easier - this is an advantage over Sivota (where we have been before), as you can literally pop from windsurfing to your room, get changed and then on to tennis in 10 minutes flat!

The Tennis coaches Ed and Brad were excellent and very patient with us beginners. Having been along to 'booze and balls' (you must do this, hilarious fun!) in the first week and getting a taste for wielding the bat we made Tennis the focus of our second week. No snootiness here, just good instruction and a lot of fun was had!

This is a great resort and the team work hard to make sure everyone is happy and all goes to plan! Alex, Naomi, Lloyd and Ed were our stand out staff of our stay - great job guys!

There were only a few niggles...

Wifi. Operates at the pool bar only and pretty much on a one-off, one-on scenario. Did stop me from being glued to my phone for two weeks, but annoying if you wanted to just download an email or two and couldn't for the life of you get connected.

Bar prices. For alcoholic, soft drinks and water the prices are all too high. I would prefer to pay a bit more up front for my holiday and see the bar prices tumble by at least a quarter! Prices in Marmaris bars were half of what Neilson were charging, and of course supermarket prices much much less. Many guests were sneaking in their off-licence purchases.

Gym. Having an indoor gym for fitness classes and using cardio and weights equipment would be great if one can be squeezed in on site somewhere!

Chill out bar. Whilst the entertainment each night was very good it would be great if there was a bar or chill out area for guests to sit and chat with a little bit of music playing and some comfy seats. Another guest suggested to us that the pool deck area could be perfect for this, with perhaps a bit of sound deflecting away from rooms?

we are just back from our holiday & keen to go again - we enjoyed everything and thought it was a lovely friendly place to holiday.

kayaking, Tennis , wake boarding & stand up paddle boarding were all great - the fitness classes were great fun as was the Aqua.

Food - was amazing so much choice - lovely quality - would definitely go again
Spa- lovely massages to ease away the aches of a busy day

Room Tip: we had a sea view - next to the spa - so only a short walk for me after a days tennis

Ahmet, Alex and Katie are running a tight ship this year at this secret island paradise. This was my fourth consecutive year and all the extra touches, from the table covers in the restaurant to the lanterns in the beach bar to the bedding plants around the club have taken it to another level. You are made to feel really welcome by the whole team who are both English and Turkish and are helpful and enthusiastic at all times. The food is fantastic and the salted fish (and even chicken this year) is a must! There are activities to suit everyone and as Neilson say 'you can relax as hard as you like'!!

second time at Adakoy and just as good if not better than the first. Small and intimate resort where it's easy to get to know people. Food is superb and both bars offer good service. The beach bar has been improved with new furniture and staff excellent. The rooms are a good size ( ours was a little damp/ musty) but cleaned everyday and the place is generally wheel maintained. Will definitely go back as this has to be one of Neilsons best resorts

As far as I'm concerned, you're never going to be disappointed with a Neilson holiday (unless you're a boring sofa bound sun bather) there's so much to do and great service. We filled every second of our holiday with water sports, tennis, cycling, yoga, exploring and swimming. It was outstanding. The area is stunning, blocked off from the mainland with an island between you, great for wake boarding, water skiing and kayaking. You can kayak across to the little island opposite and explore. Good for beginner sailing too. The rooms were gorgeous, pool clean, bar served good drinks and music! Food was fab, am going to be disappointed everywhere I go after the buffets here! My fiancé and I loved and will be back again soon.

Let me start be saying I very rarely return to the same place twice because in the past the 2nd visit never matches up to your memories and you feel slightly disappointed but not with Adakoy, the resort is absolutely brilliant, from the moment you get on the ferry that brings you across the bay into the resort you feel like you are escaping to your own little paradise. There is a great mixture of Turkish and English staff who all ensure you have a great time. Ahmet runs the resort expertly with his team providing great food and accommodation, nothing is too much trouble and always with a smile, while the Neilson team led by Adam and Alex ensure everything runs smoothly, quickly sorting any issues that crop up. All the activities are brilliant especially John and his entire ski team who were always on hand to give us help and encouragement. If you get chance try the Booze and Balls with Ed and Brad who make event great fun and who always have a second career has an Ant & Dec tribute act. There are so many activities it is hard to mention them all but the volleyball with Lloyd is a great way to wind down after a busy day on the water and a perfect excuse for a beer. Our 2 weeks flew by and I cannot wait to return for a 3rd time.
