I have never been to turkey before and when our travel agent showed us the Yasmin resort we couldn't say no! This plac isn't for people who want to go out clubbing every night as this resort is in a lovely quiet location with thei own entertainment.
When we went and checked into our room the staff was lovely! Showing us around and making sure everything is okay. We had a balcony and the view takes yor breath away. There was no disappointment there. We had a lovely big cosy bed, which was a struggle to get out sometimes as it was so comfy! The rooms was kept spotless aswell as the staff being ever so friendly when they came and down it.
I really don't no how people can moan about the food, they even done chicken nuggets for people who don't no what experimenting with other food is like. There was such a variety. It as nice not having much English food and trying something new to be honest. In the morning you could have a omelette or a egg with lots of choices of bread to have it with. The cheeses and the ham was lovely, especially with the croissants. The waiters were very friendly and was never too much hassle for them to sort you a table outside where you can find a little cat that would kindly sit there and enjoy the sun. You had a choice of eating inside and outside, outside was a little harder if you wanted a view seat as it was so popular to sit. But inside was just as nice with lovely lighting and a good atmosphere.
The beach was lots of fun, you can happily relax and just pop into one of the restaurants and get yourself a snack or get yourself to do some water sports! Me and my boyfriend went on the jet ski's an had so much fun. You can do 20 minutes which doesn't like a long time but we felt like it was going forever we swapped turns and lots of fun hitting the waves! Staff again was very friendly and chatty. I realised at the beach the fish around you will eat absolutely eat anything! Especially the kebabs they done. The water was clear and the beach kept clean with staff checking regularly for empty glasses or plates.
The entertainment at the resort as quite a mixture me and my partner actually visited a polish/Russian quiz night. (What we worked out while watching) we don't speak a work of polish but it was good fun trying to figure out what was going on. The amphitheatre is where most of the entertainment took place. The first night we went down there and had comedy, the Turkish assume our humour is it a bit naughty so that's what they went for. Was completely bonkers but good fun! Then we had some Mongolians another night doing some crazy acts! Jumping in the air bending every part of their body and just waiting for a accident I happen. The crowd loved it and I did aswell something you don't forget in a long time! The animation team was such lovely people! Their English was amazing! Probably better than mine intact. As always up for a laugh and really got the crown going. I would love to see them all again.
In the resort you had downstairs a spa, shop, clothing shop with accessories, gym and a spa! I didn't use the gym as I much preferred eating the food and going on the beach but the gym was in full use every time I walked past. The lady who worked in the shop was very friendly even though her English wasn't as good she was pleasant. Lots of things to choose from! The spa was absolutely amazing! Me and my partner has the Turkish bath the second night we was here and oh my god I loved every single minute of it! You have to do it. Normally you get a man and a lady but me and my partner both got ladies but they was so friendly efficient and funny, it was relaxing but still manage to have a good laugh and conversation.
The resort had a beach club house and a little club downstairs. Both was good fun when you have met a couple of people, the music was varied and there was someone always there to get you a cheeky drink I loved the whole atmosphere! On the last night of our stay they even done a 'white people's party' playing music which got everyone up! Yet again the animation team done brilliant!
Last not least I have to thank the staff what made it so brill for me and my partner! Everyone of the staff will make you lovely bright cocktail. My partner enjoyed the beer they had there and the wine. People moaning they have to pay for brand drinks! Well of coarse you do. I didn't see nothing wrong with their brand still went down well and it comes freeeeee! It was lovely to get to know some of the staff clearly showing how hard they work and how polite they are. I was talking to two of the staff marten and denzil and they were both just brill! Very friendly people and showing them English and them showing us Turkish was lots of fun when you have no idea how long there words are! I will never forget my experience at the Yasmin resort and never forget the staff. Thank you for making this the best holiday and I will see you soon!
