You always take a risk when you go to a resort where you have had a fabulous holiday the previous year. last year I gave this resort 5 out of 5 and I have to say that this time it was as good as last year.
There were some small changes to last year. They had closed the terrace restaurant at lunch times which was a shame as it was lovely sitting looking over the sea whilst enjoying your food. Lunch now was in the main restaurant. The plus side of this was that there was a far greater variety of food.
This year we went in June rather than August and the resort was a little quieter however it was still difficult to get a table in the restaurant at certain times. A tip to you all is be at the restaurant as soon as it opens. There are no queues.
They also closed the bar below the pool and converted it into an a la carte steakhouse, in the evening and a snack bar in the afternoon. It was always busy.
We asked for and got allocated the exact same suite that we were in last year. It was fabulous and almost felt like coming home when you walked in at 5am on arrival day.
The staff in Club Turban really are amazing. They go out of their way to help you. My 18 month old grandson had a habit of throwing food on the floor. Everytime I got down to pick it up someone would rush over to tell me to stop and they would do it. And it was not a case of hunting for tips as there were tip boxes for you to use so there was no embarrassment about tipping as you just put what you wanted in the box.
We did however tip the guys who carried all our luggage up to our rooms as we did the ladies who cleaned our room. They really appreciated this.
I really cannot say enough about this resort.
PLEASE PLEASE do not listen to those that say the food is boring. There is loads of variety every day. Try the salads etc. look around the different displays as they vary a bit.
On a separate note take a walk out of the hotel towards Marmaris along the front and call into the Infinity bar. This bar is run by 4 great brothers who really make you feel welcome. They serve great food and drinks and have good music and dancing every night. We went back there this year and were immediately remembered from last year and I mean they remembered our names not just our faces. Thats pretty impressive and makes you feel special. When you start talking to the other customers you get to realise some of them have been going to the Infinity bar for 10 years or more.
So to sum it up.
No its not British 5 star but it is really good british 4 star.
Food is fine, tasty and plenty of it.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
Hotel is always clean with a maintenance team always on the go.
Its perfect for all ages.
Would i go again for a third time?
Roll on September Club Turban here we come.
