Not suitable for people with mobility difficulties
We enjoyed our stay, but as three mature ladies we found it difficult with all the steps to the pools and the speciality restaurants. This hotel should not be recommended for older people. The food in the main dining room was ok, but, it should be noted that English cuisine was not available. (This was not a problem for us) but my family would not have found anything suitable.

Beautiful Holiday in Turkey (Izmir, Kusadasi)
The hotel was beautiful, clean and the hotel services were great. Hotel Fantasia is the 1 of the best hotels I've lived in and I would recommend it for anyone travelling to Kusadasi (Turkey). I loved every moment of it.

Great holiday in Turkey
Hotel was fab. Room was good, but wardrobe very small..OK for 1 week. Staff were lovely. Food was great with plenty of choice. There was no entertainment in evening and I was bored. Animation team shows were embarassingly poor. Hotel location was not good as I like to have a mooch in the evenings around the local neighbourhood / shops. There was no neighbourhood or shops! The seafront was manmade sand (OK) then concrete drop into sea, with rusty old steps to climb out.

Good holiday generally
This hotel is lovely and clean and well kept. The hotel and pool areas are very busy and sometimes crowded. You do need to be up early to get a sunbed as these are reserved from very early in the morning and sometimes overnight!! There are plenty of sun parasols which are very much needed as there is very little natural shade.
The one downside of this hotel is that there are nearly no English people staying there, you feel very much overwhelmed by other nationailites - French, Dutch, Iranian and Russians. Entertainment is very much geared up for others rather than the English.

This holiday started off badly - paid for extra leg room, TC had overbooked seats so did not get what I had paid for. Air crew were great - gave me note for rep - took 2 weeks to get money back - after having to hassle constantly for it.
Hotel looked good - badly in need of redecoration. Room carpets badly stained. Balcony overlooked motorway so could not use because of noise and fumes.
Food was absolutely dreadful - have stayed in Kusadasi before at other 5* hotel and food was fab - wish I had gone back there! They served the same food every night but in different shapes, ie round meatballs in sauce or flat meatballs in sauce!! There were always huge queues for the chips!
The staff were absolutely great - the bell boys and the bar staff especially - all with a great sense of humour.
Location was not good - nothing really close and had to get taxis into centrum - or cross the busy dual carriage way to get the dolmus [bus].
We were also savaged by mosquitos - mainly when we stayed in the hotel in the evening. Despite using sprays.

Great hotel pity about the lack of British people
Hotel Fanasia - No complaints everything excellent
Mainly German, Italian, French, Turkish, Japanese guests - British were of a low percentage
We brits are too polite (please, thank you etc) which is only right when you are being pampered by the lovely hotel staff but the majority of the above were ignorant, arrogant and obnoxious.
Enjoyed the holiday but the hotel is a bit out of the way - second time in Turkey but preferred Gumbet to Kusadasi
