Stayed for one week in Autumn half term so end of October 2012. Place is very clean and well maintained. Room was fine, though a little dark. Had to have lights on all the time as the back was so overgrown. Balcony was a bit of an exageration as you could only put one chair out there if you sat on it longways. Nothing to look at only backs of other block so not really worth having one and it was overgrown. Complete contrast to the rest of the place which was well groomed.Bed very comfortable and large double and free bar though only one of each drink. Bathroom facilities were fine but a big step into bath for shower so not good if you have bad knees. Plenty of storage. Entertainment was poor. Only two shows then nothing. No explanation but as soon as the Germans had gone so did the entertainment. Seemed only to cater for young children and nothing for teenagers at all. Pools were lovely and clean and spacious and as the place was like a ghost town never a problem with sunbeds. Beach was also well looked after. Food was good with a large choice. I am very fussy and ended up with the same food every day but at least I ate. Drinks always available from bar areas with no problem with quantity at all. In fact there was always something to eat or drink. As they started to close the resort down around the handful of us that were left it was annoying that we couldnt access the a la carte restaurants as they were closed. When the entertainment board was removed there was only some live music at the Zomm bar for a couple of evenings but this was mediocre and at times the accent very hard to understand. Beach Bar was very good with plenty of space and fresh food. Waiting staff were always clearing tables which gave a very good impression. Although we booked with Thomas Cook, we never saw the rep. Arriving at 5.30am to be told the rep will see you at 9.30am was never going to happen. And he never came to find us or check we were ok. Would have appreciated that! So never knew of any trips or excursions which would have been nice. Transfer coach staff had mentioned a market on the Saturday and if he hadnt said that we would never have known!! Walked into Belek which is commercialised for the market and this took approx 10 minutes so not far. However, would never have done the walk in the dark as poor pavements and dark area so would not have felt safe. Having said all this I would recommend this resort as it was very relaxing and I imagine that with more people and the facilities it would be great. Beach is sand with clear waters and a roped off area for swimming covered all the time by life guards so very safe.
