This was mine and my boyfriends first holiday away together and what a great place it was to choose! It has everything you would want and need, theres no reason really to leave the hotel! The resort is very big with lovely views. The food was very good everyday with alot of choice and as a fussy eater i found something i liked everyday. The hotel and rooms are very clean and well maintained, our rooms were cleaned every day of our holiday! The animation team worked very hard with loads of different activities throughout the day and different shows in the evenings! The hotel does have a lot of steps, but it didn't really bother us as it was a lovely hotel. The staff were really friendly and worked really hard. The only thing i would say about this hotel was the shop was a bit expensive...but other than that it is an amazing resort with everything you need and we would definatley return and recommend it to anyone :)!

Well what can i say, TRULY AMAZING place to stay. We stayed from 15th to 30th May and arrived at 2am and it was only a 45 mins transfer from the airport which was excellent. when we arrived we checked in and was shown to our room by the excellent bell boys. We was given a room with no double bed which is not what we asked for, we asked to be moved and was moved 1st thing the next morning which was great and no problem at all as the bell boys transferred us with no hassle. Our new room "1231" was brilliant with an amazing view of gumbet bay and very spacious. All the staff were 1st class from the restaurant, bars and entertainment team. Food was to die for, plenty of choice in the main buffet restaurant for breakfast dinner and lunch. There are 3 other restaurants which you have to book on the day at 9am on the dot or you won't get in. they are an Italian, Med and turkish and they are all very very good indeed, in the daytime they are all snack restaurants serveing burgers pizza kebabs etc. the bars were brilliant lots of choice even international spirits and champagne all free of charge. The entertainment was also 1st class during the day and in the evening. Special mention to TEO "Mr Waterpolo" If you don't want to take part in any entertainment then they don't hassle you unlike what some people have said on here. The hotel also has its own private beach which is great and it has 3 jettys to sunbath on and dive off etc. Watersports are chargable apart from pedlos and canoes which are free. Its only a 10min walk into central Gumbet walking along the beach but its a bit of a walk if you decide to go the road way. You can also get a dolmus 2,50lira "£1.20" each from outside on the main road, just stick your arm out and it will stop. A taxi is only 7lira "£3" so if two or more of you that is quicker and easier. Other bonuses was the free internet in the hotel and free safety deposit boxes. If you have a night flight its only £20 for late check out which is a must as you have to vacate your rooms by 12pm which leaves you 9 hours just mooching about like i saw alot of people doing. By doing this we had a late check out of 8pm and our pick up was at 9.05pm so we just carried on the last day as normal just like the previous 13days. Rooms are cleaned daily and a free mini bar is stocked daily. another bonus of this hotel is that all bottled water is free unlike some i have stayed at. A couple of tips are you can have 1 free haircut or haircut and blowdry for every week you stay there, you just need to give them you room number. Don't shop in the shop either as everything is 3 times more as expensive as the shop down along the beach and just up the hill. A turkish bath on your 1st or 2nd day in the hotel is a must to, i have a tan to die for because of it, make sure you haggle the price though like we did. we got Turkish bath and a face mask and massage for 60lira which is about £25 the going rate before we haggled was double that nearly. You have to try this hotel to believe it. Truly jaw dropping everything about it.

Just back from a weeks stay at this resort. It has everything you could want - food great - I would defy anyone not to find something they liked. The rooms were clean, and spacious enough for two - large bed and also a sofa bed if required. We spent our days at the beach - didn't go to the pool at all - either the busy main pool one or the relax pool. Entertainment during the evening was good.

Only thing I would say to anyone going is that when you are checking out and using the "shared facilities" - ie the health suite showers - don't! Go and use the facilities at the beach - cleaner, quieter and COOLER!

10 minutes walk to Gumbet - we only ventured out of the resort twice - no need to leave it!

Had a totally great time and would recommend to anyone - couples, families, older people - unless you have a problem with steps/slopes - then maybe not for you.

arrived with my partner and 4 friends and was immediately knocked out by the place. we were swiftly allocated our rooms and our cases were delivered before we reached them. there are a good amount of steps and slopes but these were overcome by the 2 lifts to all levels,including the beach. i saw 2 wheelchair users and they appeared to cope. the staff are first class and special mention to tahsin in the main resteraunt, faruk at the windmill bar and ercan and khamerun in the 24hr bar,all a credit to wow. the views fom our room of gumbet bay were stunning. the food was excellent and varied,(small quibble,NO BACON ).but we managed. our room was spotless,towels changed daily and bedding almost as often. this is a lively hotel with its own ampitheatre.disco.late bars, but we wer'nt affected by any noise at bedtimes. the entertainment was good some nights and a bit naff on others but it kept things buzzing til midnight then if you wanted more there was the disco til 3. the towel for the pool and beach were spotless and fresh every day, which you exchanged for cards that had been allocated on arrival. these cards were returned when you handed your towels in at the end of a session. i could go on forever extolling this hotels vitrtues but the best way to find out is go yourself,you wont rgeret it.

in a word, fab.
reception was not the usual ordeal either checking in or out, we had our room within 10 mins of arriving and on the way out took less than a minute.
the room was ours till 12:00 on day of departure and a luggage room was available if needed.
the room was cleaned to an excellent standard every day,
the food was 1st class (special mention for Ismet in the main restaurant,very attentitive and helpful, a really good chap).we didn't have time for the a la carte as we had so much to choose from here.
service at the poolside bar was always quick and we never felt that anything was too much trouble ( mentions here for Arif Gokmen and Gokhan, top lads).
pool itself was always spotless.
in fact the only moan i had was that the music at night from the windmill area (check out the view) could be overloud, so if that would bother you ask for a room up near the tennis court end.
the whole holiday from the second we arrived to the second we left was a joy, everyone had a smile on their faces and couldn't do enough for us.
i can't recommend the place highly enough, we will definitely return.
