Good resort but poor hygiene
The resort itself if amazing, the views are brilliant and the pool areas are really nice.
There are two main pools one is quiet noisy and the other one is peaceful and has views over the sea.
Our room in the main hotel was good, the maid came in everyday if you were out your room by 11am if you were not then you didn't get any clean towels or extra toilet rolls or clean sheets.
You could ring down to reception and they would bring you some up.
The staff I don't think mean to be rude it's just that they don't speak very good English therefore it can come across as being rude.
The food was very repetitive and bland, there was no flavour to any of it.
The glasses by the pools are not washed in a dish washer when busy they are just swilled out and reused.

Great family holiday
Very clean and nice rooms, great service. Lots of pools and the slides will keep the kids busy for hours. TC rep not very informative leaving us to find out everything for ourselves. Kids entertainment only starts at 9 which is too late and alcohol selection at these bars very poor leaving you with no option but to take your own.

Pine Bay, Kusadasi
Lovely complex, very clean. Staff polite and friendly. We had a couple of issues with our room, but these were sorted out almost straight away. The food was pretty basic, but there was plenty of it and we never had to wait, although the queues long. We were all-inclusive but this only lasts until midnight (?)and also ice creams for the children are only available from 4pm - 5pm - the queue for this was MASSIVE!! Totally unsuitable for anyone who has walking/breathing difficulties as set into a hillside, although there are golf buggies available to transport you from one end of the complex to the other. The entertainment was pretty average, doesn't start till 9pm so if you have little ones, not ideal. All in all, we had a nice time. Internet access was only available inside the hotel, but wasn't a problem for us. Parents with teenagers would find they would be bored in the evenings. Bus into Kusadasi is 1 euro each - but beware of the driver trying to charge you more, I fell for that, but only once!!

Fantastic Family Holiday
Where do i start?! I travelled in a party of 17 of which 4 were children aged 2, 8, 9 and 11. I think i speak on behalf of us all when i say what an amazing time we all had.
This hotel has everything you could possibly need or want for all ages. The staff were all polite, the animations team were absolutley fantastic (we have even become facebook friends with most of them). The waterpark isn't huge but it has more than enough for hours of fun and should you get bored (unlikely) then there are 3 other pools to choose from and a large kids pool for the younger holidaymakers. I could go on and on about how great this place is but i'd be here all night. We plan to go back next year, the first time we have chosen to re-visit a holiday destination. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Go and see for your self, you won't be disappointed.

Great Family Holiday
Our 3rd visit in 4 years.
The hotel is very good / excellent. The majority of staff are friendly and polite, could not do enough, especially around the marina bar.
Location is brill for visiting towns & attractions, such as Ephesus.
For 10 days the food variety is good, when going for 2 weeks it does become a bit "same'y" though. The quality is excellent.
Rooms are cleaned every day, we stopped in the bungalows which were brill for us, nice and spacious for 4. Have stopped in the hotel before, the room then was lush.
Entertainment on the night was okay, alot of nationalities to cater for, but do a good job.
Pools are excellent, lots of variety for little ones. The marina beach is good, however compared to previous years there did seem to be alot of litter on the beach, cigarette ends mainly, the main beach area was terrible for this... lack of respect of holiday makers.
The sea was spot on, warm & clean.
For toddlers or children, the lack of play park or anything does knock the complex down somewhat. Besides the childs disco, there is very little for toddlers or the little ones to do after the mini disco, apart from sit in the piano bar with mom and dad, lol, an enclosed play park would of been a godsend for us, with a very active 1 year old, who kept running off, just knowing he was in an enclosed safe area to play would of been a welcome 10 minute break :-)
The complex is built into a cliff, difficult for wheel chair users, or those less fit. Just a warning.
In summary its an excellent holiday, however i did feel slighlty underwhelmed this year. The service compared to previous years wasnt as at the high standard the first year we went, nor was the cleanliness of the beach... plus found the clientel more "touristee", i.e. dressed down for dinner etc... wasnt allowed before, plus some staff were less smart, etc.... not a massive gripe, just that it didnt seem as a higher standard as before.... perhaps i am getting older & grouchier, lol
Would I recomend - yes.... Would I go again - not sure, if price right yes, if something else of similar price & standard, perhaps not (a change may be on the cards).
Also, if go into town, dont be scared to barter (& get your Lira when there, much better rate!)
