Stayed at The Titanic for 10 days returning 1st September with my 2 children, the only downside was that we were not there for longer. The hotel is a 15 min cab journey from the airport at a cost of 20 euros each way. The reception area is very impressive & the layout of the hotel is brilliant & although it seems large from the furthest end of the resort to the beach pier is only a 10 min walk. The beach is lovely with cushions on the pier which were always avaliable when we went during the afternoon & plenty of free sunloungers. There are 7 pools at the hotel, the one nearest to our room was the half sized olympic pool which also had an outdoor jacuzzi this area was practically empty most of the time. We usually went to the pools around 1pm & always found at least 3 sunbeds together although most people tended to reserve early. I found the best pools to sit around to be the waterful one or the olympic pool both were quieter than the slide or main pool. My kids loved the slides & pirate ship,the large slides had lifeguards to ensure safety, the smaller slides had no lifeguards so it is up to parents to supervise. There is also a lovely shaded childrens playground with equipment & tables for them to draw. I used the gym which was great with plenty of running machines, bikes & free weights. The sauna/steam room & turkish baths were lovely and kept very clean. The indoor pool was very popular with my kids and virtually empty also. We were due to stay in a family room in the annexe but due to an overbooking we were offered two adjoining rooms on the 6th floor. These were lovely with a double bed in one & 2 single beds in the other with an interconnecting door, both rooms very large & two big bathrooms. I had requested an annexe room because I prefer not to stay in large hotels & when I explained this I was offered to be moved to a vip villa the following day. The villa was absolutely stunning & I would really recommend booking one if possible. It was situated in a lovely quiet area near to the indoor pool & main restuarant & surrounded by beautifully kept gardens The ground floor of the villa had 2 single beds, a dining area, living area & large walk in shower in the bathroom. A staircase led to the 1st floor which had another bathroom this one with a jacuzzi, and 2 bedrooms both very big with a large hallway, both floors had a balcony & there were 3 tvs in the villa. It was impeccably clean with lots of storage space & the beds were very comfortable, the air con was really effective & kept the villa to a cool temperature. Mini bar was stocked daily with coke, fanta, water & beer.
The cleanliness of the entire complex could not be faulted & the cleaner who cleaned our villa was so sweet & polite. I expected staff to be rude after reading some previous reviews but found them to be the total opposite, from bar staff, reception staff to lifeguards all were polite & friendly with no exception. I felt the entire complex to be safe & had no qualms letting my children off on thier own. We hired a beach cabanna for the day & this was a real luxury, a perfect place to enjoy the beach whilst being waited on with food & drink! The evening entertainment was excellent with what I found to be quality magic/dance/circus shows. There was also a beach party with fireworks whilst we was there. The food at all outlets was exceptional, breakfast was the usual cold meats, fruit as expected but with lovely fresh bread & rolls. At lunchtime you are spoilt for choice with a restaurant serving fresh pizza & kebabs, the beach bar serving steaks, chicken, fish etc all of excellent quality. There was also the otag tent which served traditional turkish food prepared & cooked in front of you. The main restaurant served delicious fresh lunches. Jacket potatoes, fresh rolls, doughuts & cakes were avaliable during the afternoon & evening meals in the main restaurant were always great with such a varied choice & meats & fish of a really good quality. The main restaurant could get very busy but we never had to wait longer than a few mins for a drink. The drinks were strong & of good quality & the sparkling wine was especially nice, rarely waited longer than a few mins to be served at any bar and during the evening the bar staff would come to your table with drinks! The hotels shops were ridiculously overpriced but just outside were shops that were far cheaper. My kids & I were gutted to leave and had the best holiday we have ever had. I do not tend to return to the same hotel twice but would not hesitate to come back to the Titanic. We loved Turkey & are returning next year to a hotel in Belek but look forward to returning to the Titanic in the future.
