My family have just returned from 2 weeks stay and I am going to be 100% honest in what I found
Rooms: very clean beds immaculate - maid will pester you for tips though!
Toilets in public areas: disgusting very smelly - I would use the one in my room first
Bar: alcohol undrinkable I am not that fussy however I don't like beer and the spirits would burn your throat
Pool bar: be careful they filled the slush machines with the same hose used to water the garden
Pool snack bar: very rude to children they sent my daughter away saying she had enough!
Entertainment team: very pushy and like a bunch of teenagers let loose to cause havoc
Shops on site: when I wouldn't pay their prices for fake goods (I actually think they believe what they sell is genuine) I was told I was an alcoholic and a junkie???!! The market for sweets etc make up prices according to nationality my daughter was charged £3 sterling for a tube of smarties!! Seen one French woman charged £20 for silly plastic torch!!!
Turkler - if you don't mind walking along aside a motorway in turkey it's not far to walk but myself and mum didn't feel safe and got constantly ripped off by taxi drivers
Slides - kids loved them although I didn't think splash pools were deep enough and there was a few sore ones
The cattle market / restaurant : one word - rabble!! They fight for
plates, food, cutlery and that's the adults! Food is cleared away before you put your fork down! But the selection is good and if all inclusive you won't go hungry! However we did notice the grill was a bit of a worry - they dripped the raw chicken over the cooked chicken and a lot of the time it was raw!
Hotel manager: Australian old washed up cheeky and downright nasty woman
Al a carte - looked ok didn't wait for starter as kids didn't have option on menu
Burger land - nice quiet and good place to eat
Patisserie - lovely cakes nice coffee although a smile would have been nice
Spa - had a Turkish bath and they tried to rip me off for £200 in medical massages - twice I went and got different diagnosis!!
Fight fight fight - its brewing everywhere too many cultures in one place and we noticed a few fights during our two week stay
First choice reps - my five year old would do better
Kids club reps - amazing they made my kids holiday!! Fantastic girls all wasted in this hotel!!!
Location - love the motorway? This is ideal
Illness - there was a breakout of sickness and diahorrea which we didn't know about all the family took ill my daughter then tested positive for rota virus when we got home possibly due to the poor hygiene in public toilets
Mini disco - same every night five foot high stage with 40 kids on it - it's a fatality waiting to happen hope it's not your child
Overall it's not a bad hotel however the staff are rude and its just poorly run! Unfortunately this was parents first time in turkey and this hotel has made them never want to return however I have seen the other side to turkey that is friendly and welcoming but I did not see even a glimmer of it here!
