“Great Hotel with Great Staff”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

I booked this hotel through a travel agent in Europe, while I was in western Europe for another trip. This was my first week in Turkey. It was excellent, due in large part to this fine hotel and its attentive staff. My room was comfortable and clean, and it was kept that way all week by the efficient maid service. The front desk people were extremely helpful, answering any questions from me and offering advice on what to see and do. I literally spent almost the whole week down on the beach, relaxing. I did do a day trip to see more of Turkey.
The food was delicious and plentiful. I was not there to eat what I can find easily where I live, so I was very pleased at the array of Turkish foods that were available at each meal. The service in the dining room was always attentive and considerate.
As I am fluent in both English and German, I did not have any trouble communicating with anyone at this hotel. Personally, I found that having patience while communicating with people worked wonders, since there were some people who out and about who did not know German, but did understand some English.

We chose this resort for the fact that we had kids and their is a selection of water activities unfortunately when we went the slides were only open for 1 hour per day and our kids were the only kids their for the 1st week, overall was good, clean complex and the staff were very helpful, the only real downfall were the Germans they are ignorant pigs who think they are better than everyone else,
The food was good and the travel is an event in its own, the local Dolmus is fantastic and certainly a different way to travel but well worth the few pence that it cost and they will take you anywere.

Room Tip: Just be nice and they will go out their way to make your holiday very enjoyable

As this was the third year that we've been to this hotel, there's not a whole lot more that I can say about it - just read my last two reviews!! Sadly, it will be the last, as the hotel will be under new management for 2012. A lot of the staff were still there, in particular Sirkan, and Ramazan, and also Musa from Calimera, and not forgetting Buffy and Ibo!! The hotel is lovely & clean, maid service every day, and meals to die for!! Yes it is predominately German, but tourism here in this area is predominately German - please don't let this put you off!!!

We have just come back from a 10 night stay at Monachus Park, it was great! There was nine of us and we all really enjoyed ourselves. The teenage boys loved the disco at the fun park till 2 am and they felt safe there too. The food was very good; a selection of many different dishes. The hotel was very clean and the staff friendly.
We wont be able to go next year if the hotel is sold as a new one is being built; adults only.

1 week stay, first week of Aug 2011 - Family with 3 children, 10, 8, 4 year's old.
We chose Side primarily for the weather, we were not disappointed with 35+ every day, 29 at night, and 28-29 deg in the water!
This hotel is a big machine and located a bit away from the beach. This means most rooms have poor views. The best ones have a view over the main pool. The walk to the beach is about 200m, which doesn't sound that much but can be a pain with almost 40 deg heat and 3 young children.
On the beach, each large hotel has its area with a restaurant and many deck chairs, with always plenty available. The sandy beach is clean and very kids friendly, with shallow waters and small surf. The all coast is full of peaple, in fact I had never seen so many deck chairs in my life.

Guests of the Monachus are entitled to borrowing a windsurf (against international certificate ??), a kayak or a pedalo, once a day at the watersport center. Their staff was particularly unwelcoming though, and I was never allowed a ride, as they are too busy selling rides behind their power boats. Quite disappointing for us...

The service was generally very good is the hotel, with friendly staff that doesn't overdo it either. Impeccable room service. The food was really the high point there, with a very large choice of salads, vegetables, fresh fish every day, soups, wide choice of deserts and plenty of junk food as well (chips, sausages etc.)
Drinks are available all day, soda dispensers, lager and wines. There's even ice-creams give aways twice a day!
The pools are cleaned every night and open until 19:00.
The Spa was quite good with friendly and well trained staff. We tried Turkish bath and hot stones massage. Both are recommended. Good value.
There is a young animation team trying to get you to silly pool games. They're not pushy though. They have a show in the evening, involving kids. The whole atmosphere is pretty laid back.

Hotel population is mostly german. There are a few Brits and Dutch as well as Russians. Mostly families. Everyone is "well-behaved" and I haven't witnessed anyone behaving improperly, being drunk.
All prices are in Euros and I advise you to avoid the TRL as prices will be higher if you use the local lira.

The area around has very little cultural interest. Side has some nice ruins but the village is really just a gigantic shopping center, with hundreds of shops selling pretty much the same. If you're into counterfeit goods, you'll find happiness there, from fake watches to copied designer clothing. Knockoffs joints as far as the eye can see...
The coast presents little interest as well, as it is basically one long beach.

If you want a week by the pool, with nice food and guaranteed sun, go ahead. But beware, the place is purely functional and has no charm what so ever.
