A friend and I spent 21 days in the Sara Club Hotel and we really loved the experience. I was impressed by how hard the waiters and captains work. There is a bit of chaos in the dining area but that certainly not due to the dining room staff. The waiters are pleasant, courteous and work long hours. I wish to mention the great services of Mehmet Ali and of a young woman by the name of Merve.
The administration could find a way to seat the guests by giving cards that could indicate that a table is taken.
The hotel is regal and decorated in a style particular to Turkey. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, the grounds well kept and the swimming areas delightful.The food was varied, fresh and initiated us to Turkish gastronomy. I was impressed by the beautiful decorative fruit and vegetables presentations that accompanied the main dishes. The deserts are to die for.
As for those who complain about the Turks not speaking English, I beg to differ. We were able to communicate our needs and questions to the desk clerks. I wonder how many tourists bother to even learn the basic "please and thank-you" of their host country.
We were able to go to the old town which is very worth while. The Antalya museum will thrill history and art buffs. We always found someone to help us in English if we were lost or needed information. Taking the bus was a little adventure. Those who want things like home should stay at home.
We were able to book our own outings from a agency close to the Sara Club Hotel and visited the surrounding sites, We also booked an evening of Turkish folk dance and belly dance. It would be a good thing if the Sara Club Hotel hired someone to take care of these things as it would assure the quality of such outings.
All in all we loved the hotel, Antalya and all we saw of Turkey. I would willingly return.
