Very good holiday village with many pools with excellent equpment - aquapark, many pools, good restaurants and drink points, bars, giant areal, beautifull sea and beach suitable for small children, very well equiped rooms in seveal separate buildings. Although almost luxurious thee is not mandatory to wear suit in restaurants.... And the atmosphere is very good and pleasant. The club visitors are mainly families with chilrdren and come from Germany and partially from Poland and seferal other countries like czech, sweden,... But no russians! The staff speaks only turkish and german, they also have polish speaking staff at the reception. They do not speak well english. The holiday village has one of best aquaparks we have ever seen. The sea watter temperature in late August is 29-32 celsius dgrs. The meal in restaurants was excellent. The villages are located in great park with gardens and hundrets trees and palms. I have only one notice - the hotel should somehow guard the beach where we met several very aggressive and big wild dogs! I stronpgly reccomend to solve this because we were afraid to be there withs small kids. This is my only suggestion. The hotel is located far away from cities and there were only several shops in front of the hotel, some were also in the resort area. It took some 20 min by taxi to beautifull ancient city of Side with bars and small shops and some 30 min to Manavgat with big turkish market(and nothing more :-)) I can reccomend this resort to all who have kids and wants to stay somewhere in warm climate with pleasant warm sea watter and aquaparks. We have been at Turkish priviera se eral times bud afer visiting this resort we have decided to visit it again. We do not see any reason why to try to find anything else!!!

Room Tip: The hotel has standard rooms abut it has also bigger rooms for families wit two bedrooms. The best l...

We spent 2 weeks at this resort. The rooms were large and nice, and cleaned every day. The minibar (water, mineral water) was free of charge, and refilled daily. We recommend to avoid rooms on the ground floor.
Each guest receives a pool towel at check-in. If you want a sunbed at the pool you need to place it before 7 am. Later all the sunbeds are occupied
At the main restaurant it was plenty of different food to chose from, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The restaurant was clean and hygenic.
We spent most of the days at the main pool, but also enjoyed the Amazon world facilities. Crazy river was a lot of fun, and Lazy river was relaxing. In the afternoon we liked to stay at the nice beach, and swim in the ocean.
The hotel area had lot of nice trees and plants. The trees gave great shelter for the hot sun, when needed.
There are many small shops ouside the hotel, with cheaper things than in Side. We took the Dolmus to Side, this bus stops at the hotel and is a much cheaper transport than taxi. There are 3 ATMs ouside the hotel.
There is a small shop at the hotel. But the same stuff is sold at the shops outside the hotel, at a lower price.
Other experiences to recommend is the Hammam and massage at the wellness center. We didn't try the gym facilities, but from what we observed this was very popular.
Both our teenage girls and us parents really enjoyed this resort. The only negative experience was that the staff mainly understood German. When we checked in at the hotel no one at the reseption spoke English, and during our stay we discovered that the other guests was mainly from Germany. And the entertainment, both during the day at the pool and in the evenings at the amphitheater, was in German. We don't speak any German, which made the communication a bit tricky.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor Chose room on the west side to avoid morning sun

I just spent two weeks in this lovely resort with my family. And i can only recommand it to other families looking for a great time.

The Hotel is nice and well kept, beautiful flowers as long as the eye can see and a very creative and fun waterpark.

We had our 6 year old son and 2 year old daughter and they loved it (just as much as me).

The food is good and althrough day theres is varaious kinds of snacks and treats, we were especially found of the fruit house were you could get freshly served fruit.

The only downside to this hotel is that most of the staff only speak turkish and german (we're from Denmark) you couldn't even order beverages in English, so we had to resort to our very pour German. Not even in the reception you would meet an english speaking staff.

Our first vacation in Turkey. We stayed for one week and had a room on the second floor. Rooms are grouped in small buildings so you don't have the hotel-feeling. I think a room on the first floor is not interesting because everyone can see in the room if your curtains are open.

The aquapark is fantastic. It was beginning september and there where always places to sit on a quiet place. The hotel and aquapark has lots of green. Food and drinks are good and there's always something to eat. There are no free ice creams which I think should be free.

During our vacation there where only German tourists and the hotel staff only speak German or Turkisch.

We hired a car for 3 days at Side Nar Rent A Car which was very cheap and interesting to explore the region. definitely recommended

Guests can use the facility's from Club Grand Aqua which has a nice lazy river around the hotel. There 's a Amfitheater where every evening is a new show which is great to see.

It's a perfect place to be if you have children and are looking for a family hotel. This hotel got it all. A big aqua park with over 2 thousand square feet with pool, tennis corts, table tennis, crazy river, nice beach, and fantastic food is being served all the time. It's one of the best places we have ever been to. This is actually our second time here. Well worth the money

we've had an amazing week at this lovely 5 * hotel and have just returned. The hotel has been renovated recently and is in perfect shape. Great rooms, the staff is extremely friendly and foreseeing, the food is excellent, the beach beautiful as well as the garden. The hotel has great sport facilities and an amazing spa/hammam, with professional staff, who know their work. And not to forget the aqua park which has been the preffered spot of my 8 year old daughter and her friends (and me..)
We will for sure come back!

Room Tip: Ocean view is always the best!
