The Dome is a very nice resort. If you are looking for relax, nice pools, nice seaside, you will be satisfied, but unfortunatelly this hotel not perfect.
First of all, The Dome seems always empty; I hate crowded hotels, but in this case it is really the opposite: after 10PM nobody is around, the looby, even during the day, is always desolate.
Several shops at the main floor are closed, the only shops open are a strange "leather and fur shop" (in Turkye?!?!?), the business center and a small boutique, where an ugly and unpolite boy try to sell lotions at incredible prices.
The rooms are very nice, big, with a great view and well furnished...but they need to be renovated for a 5 star hotel. Our minibar was broken. We have asked several times to fix it, but nobody takes care. Moreover, I was able to use the free Wifi connection with my Ipad only from the bathroom!
The pool area is great, nice and clean, with many chairs and "sun bed"; the same for the beach: nice and well organized (towels and bar service available).
The big problem is the food; in fact if the breakfast was great (as the bar where you can have lunch) for dinner you can only have buffet. Otherwise there is only one " a la carte" restaurant, called Cilantro. It is an italian restaurant, but believe me (...I am italian)... was one of the worst italian restaurant I have ever found. It is slow, the food is very bad and the serivce is terrible.
I think that this hotel (even at the end of july) is never full, so they have decided to close the other restaurant (called Selcuk). So the resort seems sad, because, sometime you walk nearby a part of the resort that is complitely desolate. Moreover it is clear that they cannot offer a high level restaurant, because the main one has been closed.
To sum up: Kempinsky The Dome is a very nice hotel, very quiet and calm. I think it is great for families, with full board treatment. But if you are looking for a top level resort (... as a Four Seasons...) you will not be comlpitely satisfied.
