We travelled to Turkey for 1 week in the end of May (22nd-29) on an all inclusive basis and stayed in Calista Luxury Resort. Well, what can I say. It's exactly what it says on the tin. Luxury. The hotel is spotless, the staff are extremely pleasant and there's nothing they wouldn;t do for you. It is true that most of them have better Russian than English but they would really bend over backwards to try and please you and if they got it wrong for the first time (red wine instead of "white" and milk instead of "still water"). The reception area is mangnificent and the main building has anything you can only possibly want: cinema, a massive restaurant and a few smaller, private restaurants for A La Carte dining. We never actually bothered to visit any of the A La Carte because the choice of food in the main (all-in) place is beyond imaginable. You have 5-6 sorts of meat, 3-4 fish dishes, soups, salads aplenty and of course THE DESSERTS. It is enough to say that with all our attempts to be "good" we ended up have 3-4 tiny treats every meal. The swimming pools are pristine. You have table tennis, airgun, pilates, aqua aerobics and yoga classes free. Every night there's a treat: either a concert or a show, live music or a disco. My kid (almost 4 y.o) really thought this was some kind of a paradise. He is still talking about the Kids club and the playground. (P.S I just noticed that the web-ste has old photos of the kids playground and the pool: now they are completely covered by a special shade and we didn't burn: it also gives a fantastic opportunity to the adults to enjoy themsleves while the children are playing in a shaded shallow pool with a water slide and a playground within 15 m from the pool.
The bed linen is changed every day. The minibar was free. Should I say more? I am definitely coming back!
