A fantastic hotel in a wonderful city. Excellent for a business stay or holiday. Rooms are excellent and quality of breakfast is superb. There is also a very comprehensive gym. The pool area and gardens are very well presented and the fish restaurant under the pool provides delicious food choices.

We stayed here one night after a trip to Ephesus. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a suite overlooking the water. It was amazing with all the bells and whistles. We had access to the club level and the food was delicious. Next time I will definitely stay longer.

A superb week spent relaxing in this wonderful hotel. All of the staff throughout could not have been more helpful. The Equinox Restaurant is a must visit and if possible book a table on the terrace for spectacular sunsets
