From check in, to check out, 14 days later, our stay at the Papillon Zeugma was exceptional. This imposing Hotel is brilliantly run and maintained, the staff in all areas are fantastic, wonderfully lead by Baris Becerik, the Guest Relations Manager, who simply couldn’t do enough to make our stay so memorable.
The Rooms, Public Areas, Bars, Restaurants, Pools, Gardens were cleanliness personified, even the sand on the beach is continuously cleaned and rolled, the attention to detail is never ending.
Our two sons of 15 & 8 were completely bowled over by the place, with almost too much to occupy them, the Animation Teams providing a constant stream of activities and games. The watersports centre on the beach was great with good kit, with free Windsurfing ( as long as you have a certificate of competence) canoes, the dreaded pedaloes and also Water Skiing, Wakeboarding, Parasailing,, Jet Skis etc, which you had to pay for. The beach volley ball was very competitive, the Russians especially taking it very seriously, but they were very funny after the game and it was great way of meeting people, a father and daughter from Siberia told me there was a 80 degree difference in temp between Belek, 40C when we played and minus 40C in their winter!. A short walk up the beach to the sister Aisha Hotel also had a pier which was great for diving and jumping off.
The food was of a very high quality, the main restaurant was a buffet which offered a stupendous selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the choices and the displays were overwhelming and almost an art form, all constantly managed by the various Chefs to ensure everything was top notch, they were justifiably very proud of their work and were very approachable if you were unsure of a particular dish. The Ala Carte restaurants were, if anything, even better, our favourite, The Orchard Room, prided itself on unflustered service of exceptional Mediterranean food, the chocolate soufflé in particular, is a wonderful dish. The Green Garden ( Turkish) , The Turquoise (Fish), The Mexican and the Chinese all provided excellent quality food in lovely locations. In the mornings staff brought round little thirst quenchers and were always on hand to serve whatever drinks you required, in the afternoons started with home made ice cream and finished with fresh doughnuts with chocolate sauce. You could put serious amounts of weight on very quickly indeed!
The evening entertainment in the open air bowl was great fun, even if some of the plot lines were slightly strange, couldn’t remember a baby cropping up in Mama Mia! and Aladdin with songs from West Side Story?. The in house dance troupe were very good and the overall spectacle and lighting was first class and the rendition of the “Club Song” was infectious.
For my family, the one thing above all others which made our stay so memorable were the staff, who are simply outstanding, courteous, efficient and most of all fun, it was a fabulous experience and one I wouldn’t hesitate of recommending to anyone.
