Amazing relaxing week for two in Turkey!
The Alba Queen is a brilliant hotel for couples and families alike !
Although the hotel is more focused towards families, there was always a place tp escape and have a quiet romantic meal, as well as getting involved with the activities and being big kids ourselves!
The all inclusive package is fantastic! We dined in private restaurants with impressive five course menus on two of the seven nights. This was perfect for a lovely quiet meal for just the two of us.
The buffet food has a brilliant range, if sometimes a little geared towards the german market, there was always something that appealed to me and I can be a bit of a health freak!
The location is fantastic, with the beach a minutes walk away and the town of side just a 15 minute bus away from outside the hotel.
The beach has plenty of sunloungers always available for guests, plenty of activities and all free refreshments, even turkish pancakes made fresh for you on the beach for free !
All round a brilliant holiday and I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a great all inclusive package, with both fun and history in a great location!

NO NO NO
just come back, the hotel was full of Germans, Russians and French, there was only about 20 English staying there, there food is terrible, they do not cater for the English, it is all for the Germans, so we found it terrible at meal times, the staff tend to ignore the English, and severe the other people first, prime example we were about 2mins late for breakfast and they would not let us in, but the next day some germans came in at 10.10am were greeted well, and they started cooking fried eggs for them, forget the sunbeds they put the towels down at 5am in the morring. all in all terrible place.

Good hotel, below average food, Poor service
The hotel grounds, swimming pool and the rooms are very nice and clean. The animation team work very hard and are great with kids. The beach is also very nice and clean with some great water activities. However I can not say the same for some of the waiters. They are very rude with no manners at all. You will get much better service if you speak German then English. The food is below average but the drinks are very very poor quality. We will not be returning to this hotel.

Was a great holiday in Turkey!!!
That was our first holiday in Turkey. Everything was just great. Very good location of hotel, just few min walk to the sea. Not far away from Side, Manavgat,there is a beautiful places to look at . Food and services are excellent. That is our 2nd day in UK, but our thoughts are still there. The animation team is perfect, there were many interesting programs, show and games. The guys are responsive and fun. A special thanks to Vitaly :) The waiters are very friendly too, Mustafa from lobby bar is a very good man, thanks to him as well . The pools outside and inside were lovely. So in total can say that Alba queen is a great place were to stay. Would like to go back again :)

Fantastic holiday in Turkey
My family and I had a relaxing time in Turkey. The hotel at the Alba Resort could not have been any better,we couldn't fault it at all. The waiters were very friendly aswell as professional in their jobs. When we arrived the reception staff made us very welcome,also they were very helpful during our stay.
