“Fantastic Hotel - Review with Tips”
Reviewed 24 June 2011

I always try to give honest views on the hotels that we stay at, including a few tips to get you on your way.

LOCATION – 6/10:

At first blush the hotel appears to be a little out of the way. Sarigerme is not a busy town, with few bars and restaurants, and even that is a good 30 minute walk away. However, it soon became clear to us that Sarigerme is a good central base, with all of the sights you could wish to see in South West Turkey a short to medium coach ride away.

The hotel itself is probably on the worst stretch of beach in Sarigerme, as it is where the river joins the sea. The upside, however, is a beautiful little stretch of river adjoining the hotel, where small turtles could often be seen.

THE ROOMS – 8/10

The rooms really are lovely. We stayed in a standard room which was rather large, with separate WC and wet room with bath. The complaints I’ve seen as to the adjoining holiday village being loud seemed to us to be without any foundation whatsoever. However, if you’re in the room during the day, there is a loud generator which can be quite annoying.

TIP – Ask for one of the corner rooms. They have a wrap around balcony, 2 aspects of windows/sliding doors and a 180 view, often of mountain and sea. And they cost no more. I think ours was room 1453.

THE BARS – 8/10

There are a number of bars, although the photographs are perhaps a little misleading as to the number. The oyster and champagne bar, wine bar, whiskey bar and Greek bar are, effectively, just one bar. During the whole time we were there nobody was serving on any of the speciality bars, just the main bar that connected them all. I don’t know the reason for this as we were told the hotel was at full occupancy. Likewise “Breeze”, the river bar, was not open all week.

TIP - If you want oysters, like I did, don’t simply assume you can get them from the oyster bar; you have to order them a day before. Bit of an annoyance.

That aside, the drinks really were rather good. In particular the barman in Rouge makes some excellent cocktails (don’t worry about the cocktail list just tell him you want something fruity etc. And he’ll make you something up). The outdoor bar had a band on who were excellent by any standards, not just all inclusive hotel standards.

THE RESTAURANTS – 9/10

The buffet restaurant was very good. Yes it was repetitive, but that was primarily as the choice was so great. The trick is to not do the “wedding buffet” method of filling the plate with all different items. Just put together a few items each night and there’s no chance of being bored. They had a chocolate fountain one night, a honeycomb another. I’ve seen a few people complain about breakfast, but save for good sausages and bacon everything was there (don’t forget this is a primarily Muslim country, you can’t expect good pork sausages and bacon).

The pool bar served very good snacks but gets very busy. I’d recommend this only for an early lunch. Come 2pm there would normally be a lengthy queue for tables.

The speciality restaurants are subsidised by the all inclusive, but there is a surcharge (normally 10 Euro, but 15 for Teppenyaki, and a significant amount for “Finesse”). We loved the Chinese. TIP – ask when booking the Chinese for Teppenyaki – this is pretty much hidden in the pamphlets, and not really advertised. Everyone we spoke to didn’t know it was there until later in the holiday.

When going to the Greek, Turkish or Seafood restaurants, go on an empty stomach as the meze that they bring are huge in number. TIP – At the Seafood restaurant, many of the main courses are brought whole (ie head and all). I know many people don’t like this but they don’t point it out. Ask whether the fish you wish to order is filleted or not is filleted or not.

THE FACILITIES – 6/10

The pools really are amazing. They are huge and they were never crowded as a result. The beach, whilst not being great, is pleasant. The gym seems well considered and some equipment always free.

The hotel can, however, be a little steep for the various extras. Massages came in at 100 Euro; Gel nails came in at 100 Euros. Watersports (at least those that had to be paid for) were expensive. You’re much better going into the town for any of these, as it can be much cheaper. The internet came in at something like £1 for every 2 minutes. Not a hotel to constantly be updating Facebook from!

Also the golf course has not been built yet, despite the Hilton being described a golf and spa result. They’d be well advised to drop the “golf” part of the title until its built (and to honest, the spa part as well, as it was so expensive, I don’t many people used it. I certainly wouldn’t advise people to come here as a spa resort).

OVERALL – 9/10

Overall, I would highly recommend the hotel. The staff truly were amazing, despite the huge size of the hotel, they’d remember you and more often than not your tipple of choice as well. It was so relaxing, with no hawkers or people constantly selling things, even on the beach. We were a couple, but over there spoke to a few people with children, and they were saying how great it was for the kids. They had a mini-disco that the kids seemed to love, and a dedicated waterslide/kids pool area. The advantage of this, of course, is that for the adults who don’t want kids around, there were places for them too.

Would we go back again? No, but only because we believe the world is too big to go back to the same place. However, we certainly would go to another Hilton Worldwide Resort, and would recommend this hotel to anybody.

Room Tip: If getting a standard room - ask for a corner room

We have been there on june 2011 with my husband and 2 year old son. Personnel is very friendly, the food is excellent and the pools are great. Sea is overall cold but ok. They were doing some cleaning on the sand and I think it would be better after it is finished. The kids paradise is great as well although I think the personnel there is a bit junior. Other than the main restaurant, there are other alternatives to eat which you pay for. I recommend this hotel to all families with kids.

The resort was amazing - all areas where spotlessly clean, and staff cleaned around the pool areas, bars etc throughout the day.
Our room was lovely (again, spotless), and the balcony had a door in it leading directly to one of the amazing relaxation pools which was huge.
The food was excellent - such a huge choice at every mealtime (including honeycomb for breakfast which was amazing) and always top quality and lots of it. Ample spotlessly clean high chairs for children in the main restaurant. The children's Paradise also had a child's buffet which was great if you wanted to feed your little one outside of main mealtimes. Also nice shaded play area (indoor and out). The resort bars also did great food and the cafe, lovely coffee and cakes.
Good quality alcohol for an all inclusive place.
The children's pool was great for our 1 year old and there was permanent shade around it for the sunbeds. The other family pool also had permanent shade for sunbeds, and also sunbeds with umbrellas if you did want to sunbathe.
The resort seemed fairly quiet but I'm not sure whether this was because it was early season, or whether its so big that you just never felt crowded and could always get a sunbed away from everyone else if you wanted to.
The beach and sea were fine - very hot grey sand but not a bad beach at all.
Definitely a 5 star resort.
The only slight downside was that Bar street wasn't fully open (only the main bar served drinks) and they stopped serving by 10.30 every night - having said that, you could still get a drink at the outside bars after this if you wanted to.
We didn't see any of the entertainment as our 1 year old was asleep by then but feedback was that it was very good.
Highly recommend to anyone!

If i were to describe this resort in word it would be "WOW". This was my first ever time in Turkey and be assured it will not be the last. I was there on my honeymoon so i was there to have the time of my life and the hotel and all the staff made sure of this.
The beauty of this resort was you could do as much or as little as you wanted to, whether it be on the beach or beside one of the many pools available to you.
As this was my first time ever being on an all inclusive holiday i was going being slightly concerned as to what would be free and where extra charges would creep up, to my surprise everything was available to you apart from a few selected premium spirits which i must say was not a massive issue to me what so ever.
The food was out of this world too. You had several restaurants available to you which were part of your deal and there were a few which you had to book and pay for. The cost was only ten euros a head and worth every penny, i strongly advise the chinese restaurant!!
Entertainment was top notch as well, I have to say there was member of the team who went out their way on a daily basis to make sure me and my wife were happy and having a good time so well done to you Tansel Basat because of you i promise you we will back very soon.

We stayed at the Hilton in June, a beautiful hotel helpful staff and excellent food plus good entertainment. The entertainment team were great especially Ilker. who kept the shows running smoothly whatever language the audience spoke. also Paris who was good fun. However this hotel was mainly full of famillies with young children as we have never seen so many pushchairs and toddlers. I think they have offers for free child places. lots of turkish and russian families, With so many children the dining room was very noisy plus lots were allowed to run around and play whilst we were trying to have a meal The majority of couples payed extra for the a la carte to enjoy their meal in peace, Although a great holiday we would'nt return as a couple

Stayed 2 years ago and how standards have fallen since then.Rooms still good but the Quality of food not so good, the main restaurant was too busy staff where rude and under pressure,we where pushed and shoved by very rude guests. they have shortened the time for evening meals so not a relaxing or enjoyable experience.they have not built the gulf course yet and may never as i was told .They seem to be moving away from gulf spa resort and more in to your package Holiday, lots and lots of loud kids every where no getting away from them. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL If you want peace and quite and be treated like a guest at a proper 5* hotel.

We have travelled throughout Europe, canaries & the states and this is without a shadow of a doubt the most fantastic hotel we have ever stayed in. the rooms ,the site, the food, & the staff were absolutely fantastic. it is the only time we were ever sad to come home from holiday. We tried to book for a further week but were informed they were fully booked, why am i not surprised? The only thing I would say is that the site is slightly remote but that also suited us well. the golf course is still under construction so if you are a golfer you need to check before you book, otherwise i would highly recommend this hotel and we will be booking again next year, without doubt!!

Room Tip: Best rooms for Tranquility are riverside rooms
