“Great place to spend your day for a mini escape of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Yes it's not cheap but hey did you really think it would be, it's a high roller pool in the middle of the Bosphorus. But with that being said, it has beautiful views, extremely relaxing (we were there on a Tuesday, can't say what a weekend is), great restaurants, great drinks. Pool was wonderful, good tunes. It's like a mini South Beach in the middle of the water. Like i said if you need to get out of the craziness of Istanbul, i can't think of a better place to spend the day.

“Horrible service, expensive, great location....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

Overall Suada club was not worth the cost of entry etc.

You take a small boat ride to the island (free), then pay 80 TL (mon-Fri.....100TL weekends) to get inside to the pool.

Drinks are around 30TL with good around the same area and upwards.

Overall, the view is amazing. The service is horrible! Just absolutely horrible. We complained to the supervisor and his response was "I trust my employees." I guess since its the one of a kind management doesn't value customer service.

If you have the $$, then go check it out. The view is amazing like I said but I wouldn't go back.

Four seasons and other hotels have pools too for the same price but with professional customer service!

Enjoy.

“Free to visit but expensive to drink or swim”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Interesting concept, but maybe I missed something in the translation. If you are gonna come here to chill, it will cost you. There is a fee to swim and the drinks are on the expensive side. So if money is not an issue you will probably love it here. Looked to me to be mostly supported by the well to do locals.... the porsches parked in the free ferry parking area were probably a clue.

Nice places to eat.

“Best place to chill out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We went here in the afternoon for a dip in the pool before our dinner in 360. This islet is located in the middle of the bosphorus strait which gives you a perfect view of the city. The club is well maintained with ample sunbeds and a nice lap pool. Must visit if you are staying longer in Istanbul.

“Highly recommend -relax in style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We needed a day of relaxation after touring around and enjoying the nightlife in Istanbul. We were so happy we went there. Picture white beds (comfy) -not at an extra cost by a beautiful sea water pool in the sea with amazing views of the city. It was pretty early in the season so it was quiet which may influence the vibe. The service was great-more servers than people. Good food, good cocktails. A bit overpriced but expected. Not all spoke great English but if they didn't they found someone who did. And the pool was a bit too cold for us but others were swimming. Check it out!
