Nothing for teenagers and cannot walk out of resort as not safe . Too far from airport, not enough air conditioning in rooms. Far too far from market but still god hotel and resort area

Best Holiday ever in Turkey
We had a great time from the minute we got there . Loads of things for the kids to do . We spent 3 days alone just at the water park. The place was immaculate and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The maid would do all kinds of funny things with towels and flowers every day. The food was great and the kids had plenty to chose from. The place was mainly Russian and some of them were rude and bad mannered but that happens anywhere. we loved the kids club and the staff, Ruth Jelly Gina, Nicola &Lucia were the best. They took such good care of your kids which ment we could go to the beach for 2 hours and have a break. I think the enetrtainment was good but the kids club mini disco was full of pushy mothers and badly behaved kids trying to get their faces painted which was a downer but all in all the place was great fantastic location but the beaces were very rocky so we spent our time on the sunloungers on the board wlak and it was fantastic . We went in may 2013 and woulg go back again

At best average. Dont book after mid October.
My 11 year old son and myself stayed here for one week starting 28th Oct. Whilst I appreciate this was the hotels last week of the season Thomas Cook did not inform us of this. Lots of things were closing or being cleared up around us. Food would have been nice had it been hot and the a-la-carte restaurants cost extra (something else we were not informed of.) The cleanliness of the resort was excellent. Entertainment was pretty rubbish and the entertainment crew were lazy and non creative.

All in all a good time.
My husband and I enjoyed our holiday, very relaxing, the resort is very beautiful, the view from our room was gorgeous, no complaints about the food, you could eat all day if you wanted too. The only complaint we have is that the location is too far out.
The staff very helpful and friendly.

Sunrise - it certainly did and was really hot! 2012
As we have not had a holiday for over 10 years - we were looking forward to this one! It was a nice place to stay - right near the beach, and great pools, especially the waterslides, as not too much but enough for both the children - and a hubbie!!!! We had read reviews about the food being repetitve and upon reflection - yes it was!!! especially one morning for breakfast my 5yr old came to the table with chips!!! One particular pool has a swim up bar - this was frequented by mostly british holidayers! which was fun and we had our daily entertainment from Mehmet, who by the end of our holiday had got himself 2 Liverpool tops and a Liverpool bandana, he was one of the really "nice" members of staff. However we did feel that the British were not the most favourite of the clientelle at times, as other nationalities barged past, pushed in and just didn't seem to notice we were there!!! Overall though, we did enjoy it and it was nice to be able to pick up your pool towels, choose a sunbed, go off for breakfast and come back to it and not feel bad, over there everyone does it....

lovely relaxing holiday
a really nice hotel with great pools the water slides were good although would have been perfect if they had been heated. food was great plenty of choice and the waiters were friendly, apartments were clean, the maid even left a towel in the shape of dog with some glasses on which the kids thought was funny.
would go back again.

holiday in TURKEY no. 2
Very disappointed with the resort. It was very big, catering for thousands most of which were Russian and it was hard to escape from crying children.
The food was very good considering they had to cater for so many.
The entertainment was poor as the complex was aimed towards children and the animation team's efforts were very silly. The beach was horrible - rough coarse sand uncomfortable to walk on and the sea didnt seem to be very safe. It would have been a welcome escape if we could have had the opportunity to go on more trips and excursions as those offered were very limited. The trip organised to visit Side in the evening was a rip-off. We had to pay £10.00 each to go into Side + a dolmus fare into the town. It was torrential rain therefore the only thing we could do was to be ferried by the jewelry shop owner to the restaurant where we had to pay for a meal. There was no time for shopping even if it had not been raining.There were shops within walking distance of the complex however in the main, they were typical tourist shops selling similar goods but no cafes or snack bars as a means of escape.
I made a bad choice with this complex - I wish the online description of this complex had been more descriptive.

October holiday in Turkey with friends
The hotel is good overall. Perfect if you like to stay in your hotel with facilities. The majoritity of nationalities are Russian and German, not many UK at all, few scatterings. The rooms are well set up but beds are really hard. Cleaned everyday so excellant staff service. There are a lot of facilities within the hotel grounds over a very large area. Drinks were ok, service was slow and not really very friendly, just ok. I think this may have been because not many people speak English, which is fair enough. Entertainment was very good and something for everyone most of the time, they catered well for all. I was dissapointed in a trip to Side, although a nice place to visit it was so expensive we couldnt go out again. I paid more there for a meal with wine, than I would in a posh restaurant at home, that was quite a shock. Also, everything priced in USD, this was Russian's fav currency. But Turkish will take currency. I would not re visit this side of Turkey or the hotel again, but only because I have enjoyed and had more fun elsewhere, maybe it is better for quiet couples, certainly not for holiday with friends.
