One of the nicest hotels I've stayed in
Beautiful hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are stylish, modern and clean. Maids come in every day leaving it spotlessly clean. The fridge is stocked up on a daily basis. Beds very comfortable.
We brought a 6 & 8 year old who spent every day on the slides. They were brilliant. Again all pool areas kept spotless. From 7 - 9.30 the fair was open every night. Kids loved this - all included and lots of good rides (bumpers, Ferris wheel and more)
The night time entertainment ranged from amazing to watchable. The entertainment team work very hard and are very friendly.
The food - high quality and loads of choice. Could get busy around 7pm. There was always somewhere that u could get food. Great choices. Our favourite haunts were the pancake tent (11am - 4pm) and the cake room (4pm - 11pm)
All in all think u'd struggle to find any negatives with this hotel and we'll definitely be back.

Great hotel and great holiday
May 2014 - This was a fabulous hotel and a great holiday. We travelled in a group of 13 with kids, parents and grandparents and all had a fantastic time - we were also lucky enough to get 4 free child places which made it affordable as EVERYTHING was included and the kids wanted for nothing - ice creams, waterslides and a funpark.
There were however two down sides - the first being service. Although the staff were lovely you are expected to tip. If you do tip they you are given preferential treatment and if you don't you can be almost ignored, there were many evenings where we could eat in the main restaurant without being served a drink (and there was no self service# we could also eat three courses without having any plates at all removed from the table. Its my belief that you tip AFTER receiving great service, NOT to get great service. Service in the bar areas and daytime facilities was better.
The other downside was that the inside of the hotel was very dark - many of the facilities #shops, bars and restaurants) are indoors and due to the oriental theme the interior design is dark - reds and gold's. It may be my personal preference but when on holiday I like things to be nice and light and airy, sometimes when walking to our room it almost felt like we were walking though a dungeon and on an evening I would prefer to sit outdoors rather than indoors where the majority of facilities were there.
Although I've highlighted these negatives we did have a truly great holiday, the daytimes were fantastic and the food was faultless and the kids never complained once.

Fantastic family holiday in Side Turkey.
We went on hOliday with our two daughters , their husbands and our 5 grandchildren , aged 2 to 9.
we all had an amazing holiday, the staff were all extremely warm and welcoming, the hotel was truly 5 star, and the food was amazing. the children loved the water park, and the funfair.
After the entertainment shows which we're ok, we thoroughly enjoyed the live music at the beach bar very night
Another highlight was the ease of check in at Glasgow airport so well done to Thomas Cook and the Royal Dragon

hotel very clean and spacious. cant fault it. breakfast 7-10 in the main room, but if you want a lie in you can go to a smaller breakfast room on another floor which is served 10-11. from midday you can sit iut by the pool bars where you have kebab & salad bar, fresh fruit bar and a chicken bar ! cakes are served from 4 every afternoon then main dinner served from 7-9. there is a patisserie where you can hve a sandwich and a cake abd another food restaurant open at midnight until 7 a.m.
so food on tap but you are not allwed to taje it to your room, but we did as one of us was ill ffor a day. you can get drinks from any bar all day, again you are asked not to take to your room, but nobody says anything when you hapead straight from the bar to the lift.
there are two lots of shops within walking distance outsude of the hotel, but all you can buy are t shirts and habdbags. a lovely hotel and look out for the cleaner man outside the loos by the bar in the lobby he was so happy all the time, we gave him a nice tip at the end if the week, we called him hey hey hey !!!!!

Excellent little break
Arrived at hotel late evening greeted by reception and bellboy who after filling in a short form and bar man getting us a drink showed us up to our room, wish didn't have the best view but was only here for a week so didn't complain as rooms are immaculate minibar restocked daily and clean bedding everyday. We then went down for tea unbelievable the amount of food, choice even a diet area the kids even have their own restaurant with mini table and chairs. You get waited on for drinks the staff work so hard and they really do earn their tip. Cannot fault a thing the entertainment staff are fab really took a like to Charlie chaplain fantastic really would advice anyone to go to this hotel I am really fussy about cleanliness and this is a 5***** hotel without a doubt I did go in January so as to weather it's the same level of service in peak I wouldn't know but I would be very surprised if not hoping to return next year with the kids this time if price is right x
