Great family holiday for grandparents - parents - children!
Our first all-inclusive holiday, our first holiday in turkey & our first holiday as a family of grandparents, parents & children aged 9 & 7 did not diasappoint us.
Our rooms were adequate, but very clean & in a lovely garden setting with fabulous views. Food was plentiful, lots of choice & well cooked. Good choice of restaurants. Fish & Beach bars were great for lunchtime. The Italian & the Fish restaurants were the best of the a lacarte choices. Entertainment staff were amazing! Extremely hard-working and good fun. Customer relations staff were very helpful. It was very easy to get a dolmus into Kusadasi & Selcuk. We did our own tour of Ephesus & the Virgin Mary's House thanks to well-informed taxi driver. Both were fantastic! The pools areas were cleaned every morning & staff were constantly collecting used glasses & litter. Bar staff were friendly & never served anyone out-of-turn, whatever their nationality! We cannot wait to return next year.

Great holiday. Kusadasi.
Very enjoyable holiday at the Ephesus Princess Hotel. Stayed in a villa which was quite a walk from main hotel. Pool area great, not much of a problem getting a sunbed in the mornings! Our Granddaughter had a great time in and out of the pool and the kiddies club, made a load of friends. The rest of us just relaxed and watched the world go by! Food was good, maybe not kept as hot as it should have been. great variety and certainly plentifull. No problem with any of the staff, they were very pleasant all the time, more rudeness experienced from other hotel guests! Would visit again given chance. Great visits to Kusadasi market on the Wednesday, plenty of bargains. Thank you for a wonderfull holiday.

Stayed at Ephesus Princess for 2 weeks in July. Hotel was amazing! Stayed in a two bedroom apartment for a family of 5 - double bedroom, twin bedroom and extra bed in lounge area. Fridge stocked daily with water (still and sparkling), Fanta and Sprite. Restaurant - Plenty of variety every night. Bars - Good service. Entertainment - My kids (11, 8 and 7) enjoyed the hotel ran kids club, far better than the Thomas Cook one last year. Mini disco every evening followed by bingo then main show, all very family orientated which suited us well. Pools - Nice and clean, with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. Snack bars - Preferred the one near the beach as did great pizza, and the Fish Bar was amazing - went there nearly every day. Would definitely recommend.

Good transfer to hotel only about 50 mins. Reception pretty straight forward luggage taken to villas. Villas set on a hill and we were lucky to be quite close to hotel would not have liked to have been any higher. Accommodation a little tired but very clean and tidy, rooms cleaned every day and mini bar with soft drinks refilled every day if required. Staff very pleasant all understood English at a push. We found the food choice to be excellent and in the two weeks we were there we had different meals every night. The al a carte restaurants are fantastic only problem is you have to be up early to book them and as the resort got busy the queue started earlier and earlier. There are lots of steps to the beach and I mean a lot but you can get the tractor every 30 mins which is great. I would not come here if you have any walking difficulties at all. Lots of activities on throughout the day and different entertainment at night. We travelled with another family between us we have 4 girls aged between 10 and 17 who all had a brilliant time. We all said if we would ever return to a resort we would return here.

The Ephesus Princess is an excellent hotel and I would have no qualms about recommending it. The food choice is wide and varied and the place is clean. We didn't take to the house wine, however, the red in the Italian restaurant was lovely. The animation team are very good, Killer Darts & Boules on the beach are particularly good fun.
