Stayed here for one week, with another couple, after a Thompson cruise the previous week. Check in at reception was quick and we were offered the Villa. Situated at the top of the resort with stunning views and its own pool. Not sure why we got it although we had booked superior suites. Initially concerned with the distance from the restaurant and other facilities but no problem walking down and then using the buggy to return.
The buffet style restaurant was brilliant, no end of different dishes available and difficult to believe that some people found the food boring and not enough variety. So many choices to make and in the evening several chefs cooking fresh dishes as you wait. Tried the Turkish restaurant one evening and it was excellent and I would definitely recommend it.
We had no difficulty in getting sun beds even though some mornings we were not down until ten or ten thirty.
Normally used the harmony beach bar at lunch times looking out across the bay towards Marmaris.
Generally found all staff to be very helpful and any problems were dealt with efficiently and quickly.
All inclusive drinks were not good. Efes beer tasted watered down and the spirits lacked any read bite. Never understand why all inclusive seems to mean not very good drinks ! We had the drinks package on the cruise and the drinks were excellent.
We would have liked to have seen more daytime activites. My wife likes the water aerobics but it was only done twice a week despite there being a dozen or so guests doing it when it was on.
Evening entertainment was ok, quite similar many nights and ending quite early. The Supremes were not good to say the least and the DJ was a playlist on a ipad!
Would recommend the visiting Turkish dancers although the amphitheatre gets extremely hot - not sure why they don't use the stage on the terrace which is where most people sit after dinner.
We used the water taxi to go to Marmaris which is very relaxing and excellent views on the way .We also booked the trip to Rhodes but be warned having left the hotel at 8 am we arrived in Rhodes at 11 am despite the advertised crossing time of 50 mins. Both times it was one hour and twenty minutes plus queuing for passport control and boarding the ferry. Not the fault of the hotel or Thompsons. Going to Rhodes the sea was a little rough and many people made use of the sick bags so bear that in mind if you have any problems with travel sickness.
Overall we had a wonderful time at the Imperial and would definitely recommend it.
