For this hotel one should really consider carefully the ups and the downs.
It is definitively a magnificent place design-wise.
We had an (unexpected) upgrade from a standard room (main building) to a “villa” room.
Looked great at first (“private” swimming pool) but nevertheless some details to think about:The “private pool” is shared with two other rooms. The 3 rooms of the unit have no separation at all at the terrace. The wall to the terrace is entirely glass, with a big sliding door (perfect sea view) and has only (electric) blinds at the outside, which you would like to use only at night but no curtains offering a little privacy during the day. This problem is aggravated by the fact that all walls in the rooms and on the terrace are covered from top to bottom by mirrors: anyone on the terrace of the unit, wherever he stands or sits, has multiple reflected view into your room (particularly interesting when you or you wife want to take a bath in the very nice design bath tub which is a stand alone item in the room itself (not in the bathroom).
Another major discomfort in these villa-rooms (in the ones we experienced, and, just in case this is problem that is not common to all villa-rooms: we were in one of the rooms in unit 7202) is the absolute lack of noise-isolation between the rooms. We could hear almost everything in the adjacent rooms (for instance, my wife thought her Iphone gave a message signal but it was the neighbor’s phone).
About the food: I consider the food in the main buffet restaurant to be good and to the 5 stars all inclusive standard (it is what it is: buffet food and after a week you get bored by it however good they are trying to make it.
For the à la carte restaurants you have to make reservations (not uncommon) and pay a fee between 20 and 25€ (!!) per person. This is, in my view not 100% all inclusive.
One other particularity (criticism) staff members, aiters and alike are not to much concerned with the quality of the service they are offering. This is, in my opinion, particularly obvious (and frustrating) in the drinks they serve, at the restaurant as well as at the bars: be prepared to get white wine bubbles and alike at room tempreture (which in Turkey is between 28 and 35 ° Celsius) If you ask or insist to have it cold, ice cubes will be added in your glass (which could work for a coke, but not for wine of bubbles).
About evening animation and parties. My wife experienced another 5 star all inclusive hotel near Belek and was enthusiastic about the evening animation (very professional and entertaining) and the after parties. I shared her view that the evening animation was rather (if not very) disappointing at A&E. As for the (daily) parties: that is not really my cup of tea, particularly the more modern concept with very loud modern music: I am probably an old schmuck ). My wife, however loves it, but nevertheless considered the A&E parties boring (almost exclusively very loud house music.
Although if over 4à-45 one feels a little bit out of place, I (we) had a good time at the gorgeous “relax swimming pool” (wouldn’t dream of going to the equally gorgeous animated pool with loud music all dhay, but it is great to have that choise). The pier is also nice and quiet.
