We've just returned from our 4th visit to the Side Star Elegance (formerly The Asteria) and once again we had a fantastic holiday! Yes I agree, it does sound rather sad that we’ve visited the same hotel on four occasions, however, with 3 teenage children who easily become bored our priority is keeping them entertained and safe. There’s plenty to... More

I went to the Side Star on 26 June for 2 weeks with 3 friends. All we can say is it is one of the best hotels and best holiday we have had ( and we have had quite a few) On arrival we were greeted as we got off the coach, a quick check in and our bags taken... More

The hotel has an amazing view over the ocean, and the hotel area is amazing. The food is great, and the staff is rally kind and helpful. Great for both families travelling with children, or as a couple. There are several pools, and the beach is great and also shallow. Takes 5 minutes with a cab into Side city. The... More

Elegant hotel with beautiful views! Refurbished and improved over the winter from what I can gather through reading previous reviews of it being "tired", that certainly isn't the case now! Predominantly German/European guests here so you do get approached in German first but all the staff we spoke to spoke very good English to us too. Service was excellent, very... More

We stayed at this hotel when it first changed from Asteria to Side star elegance. It was good then, but even better now with the extensive refurbishment to the hotel over the winter. A lot of reviewers say the staff don't speak very good English. They should realise Side has been a German holiday resort for many years. So they... More

Me & my partner booked a last minute deal here for a week in June, wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was for the price we paid but it was absolutely gorgeous! The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are very hard working, although a lot of them didn't speak fantastic English - the hotels only... More

This was our 3rd visit to side star elegance formally the Asteria, the hotel is amazing, so many places to eat, drink and relax. There are different pools to a choose from depending on wether you want to join in with pool games or have fun on the water slides or relax in the quieter pools. The hotel and grounds... More

We have recently returned from a week at the Side Star Elegance. Although we, like many others, found the resort to cater mainly for Germans, Dutch and other European clientele, this was not a problem. The service was sporadic but again not a problem, as we could always get a drink at the bar. The food was very good, the... More

Just arrived back in the UK from a 10 day stay. The British are largely ignored favouring the German nationality. Do not visit the Duden Bar if you would like a drink as we had to wait one hour! The entertainment staff deserve a mention especially Donga - lovely lad. A special mention to Muhrat in the restaurant and poolside... More
