Just arrived back from this resort and must say it is set in a wonderful location for scenery.
The hotel itself is a huge sprawling property we on the side of a steep hill,the accommodation was large and meticulously clean as is the the rest of the complex with numerous good size pools to enjoy.I had read reviews on this hotel and was a little apprehensive about what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by what I found,earlier reports about the lack of sunbeds did seem to be an issue at first but the management are sorting it out all you have to do is ask one of the staff that wear the pale yellow tops and are all over the place ,to get more and hey presto within minutes a van arrives with a load more so someone must be listening its the same in the restaurant people complained that the food wasn't labeled on the counters,it is now in fact the staff from managers down seem to be really trying to sort out glitches that have been reported in the past all that is with one exception and that is dinner in the restaurant at seven o'clock after fifteen minutes from opening there are no seats available and people were standing round getting very frustrated,it is a lovely restaurant overlooking the bay and should be a fine end to the days experience however if they opened an hour earlier to let all the mums and dads get their little ones to eat before getting them ready for either bed or the rest of the evening I think might alleviate the problem to some extent.incidentally it only occurs at this one sitting.
Back to the hotel ,the food is different you are in Turkey after all and must admit it takes a while to sample a bit of this and a bit of that to get used to it it mainly consists of chicken,beef,fish and a myriad of beans and pulses plus lots of different cheeses salads barbacued kebabs ,fish and a multitude of pastries and cream cakes but odly no ice cream.
The hotel is set on terraces with reception at the top and the restaurant five floors down ,one terrace lower and you have Turks bar which also houses table tennis pool tables unlimited ice cream served by one guy at a counter but he soon gets thru the queues then there is the bar serving cocktails and the usual beverages plus help yourself coffee machines then out onto the sun terrace with very comfortable armchairs and setees and views to die for .Down again To the next terrace and another open air bar serving roast chicken from the rotisserie along with burgers and chips and along side a little thatched dome where a chef sits crossleged on the floor cooking crêpes on a big flat griddle then its down again to the waterside where you will find several jetties for sunbathing or fishing on along with the watersports consisting of jet ski rides parrasailing and various rides that are towed behind a speedboat.
All in all this resort has something for everybody and I forgot to mention the spa which is a must not cheap but worth every penny make sure you do it on your first or second day to appreciate the exfoliation massage that will help build up a really nice tan.
The staff at this resort are without doubt the friendliest and most courteous we have encountered for many years of traveling its location allbeit three miles from any shops( although it does have two small gift,alcohol and tobacco shops on site as well as a hairdresser )is set in stunning surroundings and is a fabulous place for families and groups of friends.
