First of all Turkey wasn't a place I always wanted to visit as I'd heard bad reviews about it. However this is not correct. This hotel is absolutely fabulous and the staff their are fantastic! They can't do enough for you. They work such long hours but always have a smile on their face and make you feel welcome!
The apartment is very spacious and the balconies are big too. You get FREE air conditioning in the bedroom but if you do want the additional air conditioning in the lounge this does come with a fee but if you don't have anyone staying in the lounge on the pull out bed then it's not needed to have as the room air con is enough. The rooms aren't decorated fabulously but they are nice and to be honest who goes on holiday to stay in your room.
The food in the hotel is AMAZING their is a day time menu that can be eaten by the poolside/in the bar area or their is a main menu which has some amazing dishes on that is in the restraunt area. I highly reccommend the Turkish Special.
The entertainment within the hotel is all throughout the day you had pool games like lilo races, water polo and many more. Also party dances around the pool which is always fun in the sun. On a night time there is a various amounts of things going on between 8-9 it is happy hour so buy one get one free on all local alcohol, 9-10 cocktail happy hour which is AMAZING :) Every night the entertainment consists of Mini Disco for around 40ish minutes for the children followed by Bingo then the entertainment that is on that night which can range from kareoke, mr & mrs exelsior, black & white and many more! Then party dances which is always a laugh and ALL staff join in then open the box which is a good laugh. The entertainment in the hotel finishes around 12pm but the bar is open till 3am if it is busy. However, if you don't want to stay in the hotel just down the road on the right is a nightclub which is also owned by the hotel call Aquaria Blue which is a good laugh and I went every night.
You can also use all the 3 different hotels on the road as they are all owned by the same company!
Over all I came to this hotel for a week and I loved it so much. The staff just make you feel at home! We're in the process of booking again in October.
Most amazing week of my life!
