Just arrived back from 2 weeks at this hotel. We found a clean, though basic hotel which we would rate a 3*, not higher. Reception staff could only speak small amount of English which makes me think this hotel shouldn't be included in our English brochures. Our main moan was the food with very little choice, hence the max 3* rating. We are not fussy eaters at all and expect 'foreign' food in another country, but every night in the main restaurant it was stew/casseroles, which ever way you want to describe it. with mainly rice. There was chicken stew, meatball stew, fish stew, vegetable stew and rice. Frequently you might get a boiled potato but not often. There was a lovely salad bar if you just want salad every night, but no 'proper' meat. As the majority of guests were Russian it would appear the food catered predominantly for their tastes. Breakfast was okay, with salad and cold meat and cheese, or eggs and pancakes etc. The best meal was from the beach bar area which catered with pizzas, fried chicken and chips, rice or potato wedges and salad and fruit. We just got totally sick of the only meat offered in the evening being stews, or meatballs either square, oblong or other never round, especially as we were there for 14 nights, so we went out and paid for more normal food in Side. Only alcohol on offer in the AI tariff, was Vodka, Raki (Ouzo), whisky and beer, plus plenty of cold drinks from the various taps. That gripe over, the pool was lovely, and the arrangement at the beach with beds and supplied towels was good. The beach was stunning. Our room was good but basic with lumpy bed with springs digging in at night. We were lucky and had a good seaview overlooking the pool. Entertainment every night was pretty good with lots of music. Had the choice of using all 3 of the Seher hotels for entertainment and pools but this didn't include food. The use of Dolmus' was great and cheap 1.5 euros to Side each way. Side was out of this world if you like history. You arrive in the main carpark (all dolmus and taxis finish there) and you either walk or get another open bus (half a euro) which takes you along the winding road surrounded by 2000 years of history with an ampitheatre, columns, arches, and temples galore. It was fantastic and you can explore the acres of ruins if you like. Side high street is cobbled with lots of shops and restaurants which lead down to the small harbour and round to Apollo's temple. Overall I would go back again sometime to visit Side, but definitely not to this hotel.
