Just returned from a fantastic 10 day family holiday at The Papillon Belvil Hotel, 6 adults and 4 children (aged 7,7,7 and 3).Cannot fault this hotel and cannot understand why it isn't higher up on Tripadvisor.I'll keep my review short and sweet as it has mostly all been said before.
CHECK IN......Was very quick and friendly,we were taken on a buggy to our 3 bungalows and told that there would be food available in the Restaurant,as it was 11pm we were surprised ,it was no where near as extensive as the normal buffet but very welcome after traveling all day.
ROOMS......Were much better than I expected after previous reviews had said they were small,We had a large double bed,a large single bed and a chair which made up into another single bed.The only thing I would say is that the bathroom was small but very nicely tiled and spotlessly clean.
FOOD......Well I just can,t praise it enough,I have stayed in a lot of all inclusive hotels and have never eaten so well,from morning breakfast till the early hours there is food and I mean GOOD food somewhere in the hotel.(must mention doughnuts at 4pm (everybody else has),my grandson Cole loved them .
POOLS.......There are 2 good sized pools,1 with slides and the other where all the entertainment is.We stayed round the slide pool as the children prefered the slides and we found it a bit noisy round the other pool.As stated in other reviews you have to be up early to get a sunbed,we did put towels on early but we used them ALL day,we witnessed towels going on at 7am and no one ever comming back to them,
STAFF.......We found them to be very pleasant and helpful,you get the odd miserable one but thats the same anywhere.The people at Guest Relations were brilliant they spoke very good English and would go out of their way to help you.
OTHER GUESTS..........French, Dutch,Germans but mostly Russians.After reading previous reviews about THE RUSSIANS I was worried but there was no need we did not have a problem,they were rude to the staff when asking for things,no manners which is annoying to us but I just think that it is their culture.
ENTERTAINMENT.........Didn't see much daytime entertainment as we stayed round the other pool,but the evenings were great.Some professional acts and some shows done by the animation team,all of good standard,(mostly dance troups and acrobats)There is also a Mini Disco at 8.45pm. every night,kids loved it.After the main show there is always an after show,Karaoke,Guitar,Organist or Beach Parties which are fantastic complete with,barbecue,fireworks,limbo and great party atmosphere!!
TRIPS........We didn't do any,in fact we never left the hotel.....WHY WOULD YOU!!!!
Great Food,Great Accomodation,Great Entertainment,Beautiful Gardens,On the Beach and fantastic company.
Think i've covered just about everything,any questions please contact me.

I recently spent a week at Papillon Belvil Hotel. The swimming pools are very clean and the beach is pretty average. Mostly stoney at the entry point of the sea, but hey, wear crocs. The food was fantastic, so good that we only bothered with al a carte the once. It was a shame that every day you had to queue in lines for these restaurants for at least 30 mins, then take your chance with the Russian peoples just pushing in. The men are largely military trained so you dont say anything to them about manners if you follow.
If they put you at the back of the complex you wont get any sleep due to the cicadas. We were moved as our orignial room was damp and mouldy. Stay in the hotel and not in the so called bungalows. The room was clean and the shower worked OK, but certainly not a bungalow. Trades descriptions act needed.
You do need to be an early riser as every single beach chair and pool chair was taken by 7.30am despite there being enough for the 1400 or so guests. Some people were up around 5:00 to secure a spot.
In fact, the pool areas were largely devoid of humans apart from towels most days as people like to come off the beach later in the day.
They need to inforce the threat that towles will be taken away before 8am but not followed up on.
I did speak to a very charming lady Yasemin who ran guest relations and congratulated her on a marvellous place, just spoiled by a mindset of a peoples with apparently a complete lack of manners. Very big cultural difference with the English.
But again, take a step back and rather than get annoyed, laugh. I wont be going back and its my 3rd time in Belek. I now remembered why it had been 5 years since my last visit and it was the same issue then as mentioned above.

Dont let this put you off. Very nice staff, they couldn’t do enough for you and once again if you want a cheap week with all inclusive and get the flights right, this is one for you.

Having read the reviews we were looking forward to our week at the Papillion and were not disappointed. We arrived at the hotel in the middle of the night exhausted by an 8 hour flight.. nightmare. The initial impression of the hotel and our room was disappointing we were right at the back of the hotel grounds, there was not the correct number of beds in either of the rooms however after a sleep we felt things could only get better and I am delighted to say they did. In summary the grounds and hotel were spotlessly clean, nothing was too much for any of the waiter and reception staff, the food was amazing although the booking of the a la carte restuarants is a bit a a fuss, you have to know what all adults want for their main course at the time of booking, it also wasn't clear what restaurants were open on what nights and on the Friday for instance only the chinese is open. The animation team could not work any harder that they do, they are great with the kids and very friendly with the teenagers but not overly so. The shows at night were of a high standard and after each show when normally there would be no more entertainment, there was always something else, the garden party, the ceach party and fireworks etc. We had a fantastic time, the fitness instructor that took the yoga class and areobic classes worked you really hard which I really enjoyed and help burn off some of the calories that | had consumed in the never ending supply of food. To sum it up, the variety of entertainment, food and different themes together with the effort all staff put in to make your stay enjoyable resulted in a fantastic week. Yes loads of Russian, rooms clean but probably not 5 star, you've got to be up early for sun bed at the pool but other than that a memorable holiday...... you are never going to please all of the people all of the time.

We have recently come back from the papillon belvil, for the second time! I'm not quite sure what the people giving this hotel bad reviews are quite expecting?! We went to the papillon for the second time as we loved it the first time. What more can you ask for, quality, comfort and fun! We had an amazing time, the staff in the hotel cannot do more for you. For families and adults, this place is the place to be. Outisde the hotel there is not a lot to do, but trips are readily available through the reps. But to be honest we went for two weeks and didnt feel the need to leave the complex. It has everything you need from entertainment (not forced upon you) to an amazing variety of food and drink, your own private beach and two brilliant pools. I would go back in a heartbeat!
Ignore what others say, go to the Papillon belvil, your in for a treat!! :)

Where do I start.
Excellent, amazing, beautiful.
This is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. It has it all.
The complex is quite big but very beautiful. The grounds, gardens, shrubs and trees are quite beautifil and excellently kept.
The hotel is at the end of the driveway surrounded by walk ways to the the ground , two storey and three storey bungalows. We stayed on the second floor of a two storey (910). Altough a 5 minute walk from the room to the pool, restaurants and bars it was a joy to walk through the gardens which were very romantic.
The pool areas are excellent with lifeguards on duty at the pools and beach.
There is lots activities for young children.
The pool bars staff are excellent and there is never a queue. The local beers, wines and spirits are very good.
The restauarants are outstanding. I have never experienced the likes before. The variety of the food was exceptional covering all tastes. The fish dishes were excellent.
The a la carte restaurants were a different story. They were even better than the main restaurants if you could get better.
The Mexican, Italian Chinese, Fish and Turkish restaurants were outstanding. The service was excellent as was the food.
The pool areas always had food being served. Watch out for the doughnuts at 4pm and the freshly made pizza's.
The entire complex is beautifully clean and I saw on numerous occasions foood, spill and litter cleaned immediately.
The public toilets on the complex were cleaned regularly to a very high standard as was the surounding pool area and showers.
The managers of this hotel should be proud of the staff who work hard to present an excellent hotel for their customers.

This hotel was veeeeery good! one of the best i have been to so far!

In my opinion i think this hotel would be suitable for all ages, the staff are brilliant, and the facilaties are great.

The only downside to this hotel was that we got put in one of the worst rooms out there, well it wasnt the room, it was where the rooms location was. But we soon got moved to a more suitable room closer to the pool and beach.

But other than that the hotel was AWESOME! and i am sure you will enjoy it. Just ignore all them moaners out there, they just dont know how to have fun :)


Hope this helped :D
