Magic Life Waterworld Imperial delivered one of the most amazing holiday experienced I have had yet. This is a truly brilliant hotel that caters for everyone and everything.

First impressions were not great. The hotel area is quite tacky and does nothing to allude the beauty that you encounter once you enter the resort. Being taken on golf buggies to your rooms is a nice touch to start the break. We had a family room (even though we are a couple) which contributed to how spacious the room was. Arriving at night, we were indicated to the late night snack bar. This was a bit of a nightmare since the complex is huge and it is difficult to negotiate in the dark. The food in the snack bar was basic and left me worried for what was to come over the next 7 days.

However, we were shocked. The food was of the highest quality. There were plentiful cold displays for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a huge outdoor hot food area. The one thing that strikes you immediately is that so much of the food is cooked in front of you, reinforcing how fresh the produce is. The tastiest dish was pide - a Turkish bread topped with either cheese, meat or spinach (again made fresh by a dedicated cook) I would definitely recommend booking the a la carte restaurants. We had the Turkish and Brazilian menus twice and it was unbelievably tasty (but one for the carnivores for sure!). There is also a tasty Mexican snack bar and beach kebab cafe - each with hearty options to fill any hunger pangs.

The pools really did suit every taste. The waterslide area is huge and seemed to be where most people were. There was the obligatory entertainment programme around the pool which made it very noisy. The family pool is hidden away from the main strip and had smaller water features for children. However, for those wanting pure r'n'r, then head to the Adult Relax Pool. This is strictly for over 16s - something that was reinforced by lifeguards and hotel management. There is a pool bar serving beer and soft drinks with the friendliest barman (Fatih) I have come acrosss in a while! Normally with resorts like this, sunbeds can be a problem. But with this resort, you never struggled for one - even if you didn't get to the pool until lunchtime.

We stayed in The Village area (whcih is close to the two quieter pools). This area is surrounded by large pine trees and aloe vera plants and is extremely peaceful at all times. Those seeking a peaceful holiday should head here.

There were so many activities to take part it, we were feeling tired just watching everyone! There are 6 floodlit astroturf tennis courts as well as many places to play volleyball, badminton, ping pong and darts.

The evening entertainment programme appeared to be very much targeted to a German audience with plenty of live bands of dubious quality playing hits from the past 50 years. Brits found this hysterically funny (you'll see what i mean) while the other guests found it very much to their taste.

It is true that Germans and Russians do make up the vast majority of guests here, but if your main concern is being surrounded by fellow Anglophiles, then head to Blackpool. This is one seriously classy resort with plenty for all. We did not leave the resort once and there is so much we did not do - that gives you an idea of the sheer magnitude of the place.

The final mention must go to the staff. There were plenty of them around and nothing was too much for them. The quality of service was the highest I have experienced in any hotel I have visited. Managers were constantly going around checking everything was just so but the most fascinating thing was that all the staff were so happpy - it really aided our enjoyment of the break.

Whatever you want from a holiday, you are sure to find it here. It really was something for everyone and I will be back in the very near future.

Room Tip: Request The Village - it is the most beautiful area of the hotel. Ask for a room with a balcony over the pool as some of them face trees or the adjoining hotel

This all-inclusive Magic Life resort near Antalya is huge, it's classy and it's fun with great staff (600 of them). Like all Magic Lifes, it caters for German speakers but don't let that stop you. For us, two adults and boy 15 and girl 13 it was the best of 3 Magic Lifes so far. Hardly ever saw the kids so we adults chilled out at one of the many pools or on the beach, ate and drank to our hearts content (like I said, all inclusive, no cash required even for water sports and nightly entertainment). A la carte restaurants include Seafood, Thai and Turkish .Price included airfares from Vienna and transfers. Turkish bath and massages (cost extra but so worth it). Temps ranged from 28 to 38.

Room Tip: Superior family room gave entry for kids without disturbing the oldies.

We never stayed in the same hotel twice, but Magic Life Waterworld is worth coming back to. We went there in 2005, 2009 and 2011, and in the future we will visit ML WW again, definately.

The "compound" is very beautifull. Main building Palace, two Phoenix buildings, and a lot of cottages between the pine trees (smells great). It's very green, with a lot of trees and flowers. There is a 1,7 km path in/round the whole park where you can run/jog. So it's quite big, but that's why it's never very crowded.

There are different pools. The activity pool in front of the main building Palace, where is also the waterpark with the slides. The slides are a lot of fun, not only for kids! The sort of half pipe slide is very high!
There is also a family relaxpool, hidden between the trees and cottages, very nice. And there is a adult relaxpool (no kids and noise allowed).
And two simple pools in the Phoenix buildings.
You can always find a bed somewhere, there are enough even when the accomodation is full.

The main restaurant is very good, but we loved the à la carte restaurants!! La Careta is super (South American), Mai Tai (Eastern) = great (try the fried icecream as desert), loooved the Turkish restaurant, as well as the Mediteranean.
Lunch you can eat in Magico, or at the Coke & McMagic (name says enough), at Zapata (Mexican, very delicious) near the family relaxpool. Near the aquapark sandwiches and toast all day, waffles in the afternoon. There is a pattiserie near the shops (cakes, baklava, chocolate-stuff)
So I gain some (a lot) weight during my stay in Waterworld.

We stayed in the main building Palace in a suite, that were two corresponding rooms. In 2005 we were in a huge one, in 2009 it was less huge, but still very very big. In 2010 we stayed in the village (the cottages), on the first floor.

There is also a spa, kidsclub, mountainbikecentre, watersportscentre, animation, etc.

The all inclusive formula is very complete, never experienced it better before (and we are used to a lot, in holidays). Even a haircut (done very good!!) and watersports such as banana or wakeboarding are all-in.

A lot German & Austian visitors. Some Belgian, Dutch, Russian (not annoying).
Everything is in German. So our son doesn't understand any of it. We are from Holland.

We could recommend a stay in Magic Life Waterworld. It's everything we are looking for in a holiday (sun, fun, relaxing, good food, etc.), with no wallet!

we travelled with friends and when we had checked in our rooms we quite far appart even though we had made a point to thomson we wanted to be close! we approached the reception and they didn't hesitate to correct the situation! The staff cannot do enough for you.The rooms are very spacious very clean and very well maintaned on a daily basis! it is possibly the best hotel we have stayed in plus it was our first all inclusive and we were not dissapointed in anyway! The main dining room was well staffed and plenty of choice of well cooked and well presented food! Definatly something for everybody!! The pools are very clean and there was plenty of sunbeds to go round! The entertainment team do a fantastic job. If you are travelling as a couple or a family a group or with friends you will not be dissapointed with this hotel!!!

Room Tip: we stayed in the pheonix block which had a seperate pool! It is centrall to everything.

This really is an all-inclusive resort. We didn't spend a penny on-site all week. Even water ski-ing and wake-boarding is free, and if you are an experienced sailor you can take out their gorgous top cat catamarans. The choice of food and drinks is sensational - gin with schweppes tonic and efes and becks beer, and there's even a gorgeous coffee bar with beautiful terrace and patisserie where you can have freshly made teas, lattes, cappuccino's etc. Our teenagers loved the freedom and all the sporting activities. We found the food excellent, and the beds were slightly hard, but not as hard as many hotel beds I have slept on. The air conditioning in our room was very good and not at all noisy. One thing that was very impressive is that the management were very visible and hands-on. Constantly touring the site to check that everything was running perfectly, and everything did run like clockwork. There is free wi fi both in the wunderbar and the hotel reception, with free terminals you can use too.
