“Nice surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

I went to this hotel with 2 friends and we were pleasantly surprised: a clean, modern hotel with a good price quality. A great pool area, the food was super: good choice, fresh and presented in a tasteful way.

It is in a quiet location. The only downside is that their communication happens in... german. English or French is really a problem for 80% of the staff, but that said, they try their best to help you in different languages.

Very good spa as well.
Nice hotel to spend a (short) week.

We've just come back from a week at this hotel.
It was a last minute booking through you travel.
The hotel itself is very good and spotless with everything you would need all in the hotel.
The food was as good as any food I've ever had abroad there was so much to choose from and some of the displays were very impressive. There was even a BBQ with the evening meal to add a bit of variety to the meals. I recommend trying one of the Ala Cart restaurants.
The rooms were of a good standard with air con safe etc and tv but with only a few English channels.
Beware before booking tho this is a German hotel there was only five British people in the whole hotel and we were three of them.
All the animation team aim all there daily program at the Germans and speak in German not Turkish or English but some of them spoke English when they spoke to us.
The staff overall spoke German constantly apart from a very helpfull English lady on the reception called Katie who was working over there for the summer she couldn't do enough for us.
We got friendly with a Turkish waiter called Fathi who was learning English and didn't speak German at all he told us that he didn't speak to any of his colleagues all day because they spoke German to each other.
I would go again to this hotel but in a larger group
Overall it's a great hotel with high standards And I would go back but not just three of us

We went to this hotel on holiday and loved every part of it.
Friendly staff, very nice rooms, super food and a perfect pool area.
Especially the animation team was very good with lots of games and fun.
Hopefully we will be back next year.

Do not go to this hotel if you are English as none of the staff or people in this resort speak English - they only speak German as this is a German resort - of which we were not aware until we arrived at the Grand Hotel Artside. It transpired that we were the only English family in a hotel of 1000 guests - the others consisted of mainly Germans, some Russians and Dutch. Whilst we are not adverse to mixing with other cultures (as we have been on many other holidays before where there have been a mix of nationalities), to be the only English family is ridiculous.

One reason we booked this hotel was because of the animation - kids clubs and evening entertainment. This is a waste of time if you are English as everything is in German so we could not participate as we didn't understand a word.

The food catered purely for the German palette and consisted of the same food every day and was very tiresome and not we wanted to eat as we had come to Turkey rather than Germany.

I see the English family who posted their review in May actually visited in July 2009 so it would seem a lot can happen in a year. No staff spoke a word of English and we were made to feel very uncomfortable during our week long stay at the Grand Hotel Artside.

When we chose this hotel we read all the reviews from different websites and were satisfied. After, however we started to worry because we realized that all the reviews were from Germany and else were. Being amongst other Eupropeans didn't worry us in the slightes; Infact, we prefer it. Wwe were worried that out chgildren would find it hard to befriend other kids. Not the case!
Yes, we were in the minority, but there were a few other British families.
The hotel was superb. Everything about it was just lovely. We'd been to other Turkish Hotels before, (The Gloria Group and Lykia World) and this hotel matched them in every way. Fantastic food; The rooms were clean; The pool areas were lovely. The staff were fantastic too! It was such a contrast to out last year's holiday in Cyprus where we were surrounded by so many Brits that we didn't feel that we were really away!
The other guests were lovely. They were all cheerful and most of them spoke English and were genuinely friendly. Everyone seemed so pleasant. None of the bawdy, drunkedness you get with some hotels (where the Brits are in the majority, sorry, but we do let ourselves down sometimes). Just a pleasant middle class hotel. Yes you can call me snob if you want! We loved every minute of it.
