We have just returned from a week at club blue dreams which we booked as we were taking my partners ten year old grandson. The hotel was supposed to provide a fair amount of entertainment for children.
However, the animation team were on end of season wind down. They did not come around the pool offering darts, mini football, mini golf, volleyball, waterpolo and more. There were several children in the hotel who were totally bored. I went to reception, who steered me to the customer relations, who was adamant there were only two children staying in the hotel. There were not loads, but realistically all in, I would say between 20 and 30.
The hotel boasted 4 a la carte restaurants, which we didnt manage to get booked into even one of them, as they only run one or maybe two each night.
The flumes were supposed to be operating between ten and twelve, then two until four, but most days at quarter past, one parent had to go up to reception to request they be switched on, but they were always switched off at the advertised time.
Throughout the week, several of the bars had run out of coke, slush, vodka, ice by lunch time.
By the time we left, we were fed up having to go to three different bars sometimes just to get a drink for three people.
Susan the Thomson rep was probably the best rep i have ever had, bending over backwards to try to sort out the lack of entertainment for children, and the a la carte restaurant availability. I saw her often speaking with the hotel management politely suggesting they walk around the pool and round up some children to join in activities which were advertised. Susan also often made an appearance around the pool so people could speak to her without carting their families up to reception.
On a plus side for the hotel, the gym was quite nice, and bottled water was available at all times.
I have been to Turkey about twenty times, and this hotel has put me off going again.
