An amazing holiday. The hotel itself is spacious, modern and very clean. The rooms are one of the biggest we've ever stayed in, well decorated and a lovely bathroom. we had a double bed, a single bed and a sofa bed! Definately worth paying for the sea view. Mini fridges stocked with water and fruit drinks daily.
The staff at the hotel are lovely people, particularly the entertainment team who really made our holiday. There is not a lot outside the hotel but there really is no need to leave the hotel itself - there is plenty of activities to do in the daytime and entertainment in the evening is also to a very good standard and always live music played afterward until about 12pm. The disco is then open till 2am and a bar inside the hotel is open 24 hours (along with snacks throughout the night including toasted sandwiches and cakes etc). On saturday night there is either a gala night or beach party. The week we stayed it was the gala night, this was an amazing night where everyone wears black and white and they put on a really really good show. Always a great atomsphere, never boring.
English guests are quite outnumbered at this hotel. However I would say this is the same throughout the resort from my own experience. A majority of the other guests are quite rude and have no manners or respect but this didnt stop us from having a good time!
We did take a trip to belek town centre one evening and there are plenty of shops and restaurants. It costs 20 lira each way (Around £9). Lots of locals here though, can be quite intimidating! Kadriye town is closer however we did not go there. A bus service is available to get there though.
Food at the hotel is lovely. There is a buffet inside and always plenty of fresh food cooked infront of you outside. The only downside is the queues for the fresh food at peak time - a lot of the guests seem to take plate fulls of the food at one time! Lots of variety to suit everyone. There is a snack bar at the beach which serves food in the afternoon which we used for lunch every day and fresh doughnuts and waffles were cooked later on in the afternoon!
The hotel has a selection of shops ideal for gifts, leather clothing and bags, a hairdresser and jewellery. There is a games room with plenty to do and 3 pool tables and you can also hire segways which is good fun!
The spa is also really nice with turkish bath, steam room, saunas and more which are free of charge all day. You can also pay for massages, turkish baths etc.
There is always something to do at the hotel, its a lovely place and I would definately return. The hotel deserves better reviews from Thomson as i wasnt expecting as much as we got! No faults!!
