“Ripe of "Thomsas Cook".”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2009

We had a fablious holiday at the Pasha's princess which we enjoyed until the 12th Night when you are then as per your invoice from Thomas Cook you PAY for 14 Nighs, your then evicted from you luxious accommodation at 12 noon the day before you due to fly out and you are left sitting in the blistering heat in our case for 14 hours. Oh yes you can get the room which you previoulsy paid for for a further 27 euros till 7 pm. Then your out on your backside and you lay on the sofas or find somewhere to lay yourself down. The do try see sell you a package to 5 star hotel and we met people back at the airport on the way home who had done this and it was a waste of money.

This did not spoil the holiday for us, but when I asked the then representative who covered our hotel, for the agreement between Thomas Cook and Management of Pasha's Princess they flatly refused. All guests in the hotel felt the same way that it was disgusting to be treated in this way so that Thomas cook could get additonal revenue from the another holiday tourist, for your room, which, you have already paid. Also on the flight, the cabin crew advise you to buy water at £1.60 as their will be no water available until you reach your hotel and until breakfast is severed. This is not the case. In fact we were told to help ourselves... The rep we had did nothing to help us at all.

When we were picked up from the airport we were quickly tranported to our hotel within 40 minuites.. Then given a room right away.. The rooms in the hotel are luxious fantantic modern, and very clean. The services in the hotel is FIrst Class and dispite other reviews the food does cater for all. The breafast in its self whould keep you full all day and the staff cant do enough to help.. The air conditioning is centralised and this year the weather was around 45 degress everyday.. So I felt it should'nt have been limited the way it was. This was obvioulsy a cost saving by the hotel.. I ended up putting my bed on the floor right under the air con to sleep. Alcohol, well, that was not great, at all. You either try their wine/red/white which is served cold, or you go without.. The cocktails are made of powder and very over rated, and their local spirsts are like fire water, not enjoyable at all. The bar shuts at 11 pm to give the pubs locally a chance at some custom. As soon as they see your armband for pasha's princess the price does go up.. We had 8 drinks at a cost of 56 euros, we then, bought a bottle of vodka from a local store and it was 28 euros. So really expensive. Shops are not cheap and not willing to barter on price at all...

The pool is fab and plently of sun beds and plenty parasols for everyone. It's a frendly place and forces you to relax. Pash's Princess feed you every two hours. All the staff are lovely and friendly. Not a place for Kids at all.

Entertainment, well this is a joke, but take it light hearted and try to enjoy what they lay on. Its not great at all. Pasha's will serve welcoming table and it's beautifully decorated with their champaign, which is like cheap cava. And again leaving tables when you receive a bettter bottle of red wine. Incidently you can buy red wine at 10 euros a bottle but its not great. Well I hope I not put you off, but wanted to point out the truth about Thomas Cook scam... JAB EDINBURGH

Firstly i'd like to point out that one of the reviews below has been left with the upmosty intention of getting this man sacked through their personal experience with him which they brought on themselves, EVERY single member of staff in this hotel had respect and dignity for everyone . I cannot speak about what goes on outside of the hotel ( in the clubs) but certainly inside of the hotel there is defintly none of the below not just from this young waiter who was very polite but from any of them and if anything of the below was to happen the 2 weeks i stayed thiswould have been the prime time for them to display "typical turkish man " as there was lots of beautiful young ladies there. BUT i cannot stress enough Do NOT let that post put you off - Being a young lady myself i never once experienced any inapropiate circumstances!!

Moving on from this post i'd like to say what a wonderfull experience (again) we had there. I cannot stress how fantastic this hotel is and is everything you would want for a "holiday of leisure".
Everything pasha's do they take pride in, whether its the delivering of the nice touches in the afternoon of cold flannels ,fruit and icecream , to the making of the beds- EVERYTHING is done to the highest prefection !!

The rooms and the whole hotel are cleaned to the highest standard everyday and the pool is so clean i could see to the bottom of it from my balcony!!

Its set close to the beach which also is beautiful - and i must say if the sea is not you style just a visit to the beach for an iced coffee in the beach hut is a must !!

The entertainment isn't oscar standard but they try and there very entertaining lets just leave it at that but who goes on holiday to watch carbiet shows anyway surely if you dont like the entertainment dont watch it there's still secluded seating areas away from the stage if your that type of person that just wants a nice queit drink!! We had a blast with everyone of the entertainment team , from just playing volleyball to darts or just simply chatting to them there always willing to talk and they always have a smile on their faces :) The bingo nights are good fun with the winner winning a free massage which made every become very competive but it all adds to the fun!!

The food every night is delicious and there was always something for everyone with lots of freash salad and lots of choice- however theres far to many deserts so i ended up eating them all because they all looked and tasted so good!!

I could spend all night writing about what a wonderfull holiday we had - all i can say is check it out for yourself and you won't be dissapointed!!

This hotel won the title " The 99 most popular hotel in the world " Severall years on the run and i can see why !! They'd bend over backwards to help you!!


I think this hotel wouldn't be suited if you were after a busy hetic nightlife as its not buzzing of music and isn't set with lots of clubs- however there is an adequate amount of night bars around if you want to go to have couple more drinks after the bar closes.
Although this minor problem i think it generally fits into everyones' holiday requirements.

Hope this was useful , and im sure that the people who have already visited this hotel will agree this is defintly one on the list to visit !!

This is a rare find and one that really should be kept secret by those that have been fortunate to stay here so that it doesn't fill up.

So why is this hotel so good?

1) Its small and intimate- 84 rooms in total, so you are an individual not a number which is great!

2) Food- food is off a good quality for an all inclusive, with many different options to choose from depending on what Theme night it is, e.g. English, Turkish, Fish etc. Lots of little treats are available throughout the afternoon including fresh fruit brought to you at your sun lounger as well as little ice creams every other day.

3) Cleanliness of the hotel- this hotel is immaculate- even after the worst storm to have hit turkey in 80 years, the beach area had been re-built as far as could be as well as the pool area within a few hours.

4) Finally the Staff- This hotel has the most hard working, friendly staff you will ever find. The waiters work their socks off as do the cleaners and the bar staff and nothing is too much trouble for them. They made my holiday complete!

To respond to some of the negative comments about the hotel:

1) The post about Ali Kurt is offensive and at least 30 or 40 guests who were staying at the hotel during the time I was their will testify to this, this guy is very friendly and does not hassle you and will have a laugh and a joke with you but only if you initiate it. My partner and other ladies who stayed at Pashas never once said they felt uncomfortable around him.

2) The entertainment- As a small hotel the entertainment is run on a small budget with Eniz doing the best he can. Three times a week outside entertainment is brought in which is very good- the other nights involve Bingo and sketch/ comedy nights which are done in dual language which does make it a bit slower but he has to cater for all the guests. At the end of the day if you join in you can soon have a good time as we did on several occasions.

3) The area is quiet, however it does say this in the brochure- if you are looking for an Ibiza style nightlife then this is not the place for you- however if you want blue sky, sun nice scenery and a place to re charge your batteries then this is it!

I highly recommend using Halli the masseuse in the hotel for a full body massage, at 25 Euros for an hour this is very good value and left me with a few less stress knots!

This was our second year at Pasha and we are already planning to return in two years- most guests are repeat customers with some German couples coming to the hotel for the last ten years which is a testament to how good this place is!

The transfer time ranges from around 45 mins to 90 mins depending on how many people you have on your coach but this is something that can not be helped.
Pashas is the perfect pink hotel for a well earned rest!
Hopefully we will see Penny & Dave and Rob & Cynthia their again some time soon!

Nice hotel nothing special though, the pool was large enough but you have to set your alarm early to get a sunbed as the wasnt enough to go round, food was ok can be a bit hit or miss sometimes very good other times not so good, entertainment was dire really bad, the belly dancers were very good but other than that no effort at all, rooms spotlessly clean and the air-con nice and cold, stayed for 2 weeks but 1 week would have been enough for me, big thanks to Terrie and Julia for the Red Cross parcel the powded egg and bully beef tasted luvly lol the 4000 Woodbines went down very well too

Hotel is so clean and very nice. Staff are very friendly. Food is great. Lovely touches like bringing round cold flanels and ice creams and fresh fruit in the afternoon. Beach and sea is beautiful. Great hotel for couples and friends who just want to relax and be spoilt. There are bars and shops and great trips to do if you do like to be busy some days though. A great overall holiday.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in August. Here are some thoughts…
Good points:
• When we arrived at 2 AM we were offered food.
• The pool area is very clean, so are the toilets. The sun beds have cushions which are really comfortable.
• The rooms were clean and were stocked with soft drinks on arrival which were replaced when they run out. This was a lovely touch. The aircon is fantastic, much better than other hotels I have stayed in!
• The Staff are wonderful! Very helpful and friendly and unbelievably efficient!
• The beach has its own section for the hotel where there is a beach bar as part of the all inclusive. There are also plenty of sun beds there.
• The special touches! Staff will come round with cold towels, ice cream and fruit during the day! We were given a rose when we left! Tea a cake at 5! The first night and last night tables were a nice idea. Unfortunately we were seated with some real miserable people on the last night so I guess it depends on who you sit with!
• Fantastic value for money!



Bad points:
• The entertainment! The hotel has three people employed to run the entertainment plus a DJ and I could not believe how lazy they were! Lots have people have left reviews saying that they tried hard but I totally disagree! Every day they had a board up with scheduled day time activities but most of these never happened which was disappointing. When they did try to do water polo they made no effort to encourage people to take part so the game couldn’t happen due to a lack of players. They kept saying in the microphone that the hotel does ‘soft entertainment’ which I think is a term they have made up to excuse there sheer idleness! My boyfriend and I joked that we should apply to work as part of the entertainment team next year as it is the cushiest job in the world and it wouldn’t be hard to do a better job!
• You have to eat outside (which is shaded) with no air con. This made meal times quite uncomfortable as it was so hot. I loved the weather but hate to be sweating hot when I’m trying to enjoy a meal!
• The food was generally good considering the size of the hotel. However, I am a vegetarian and pretty much all of the hot food had meat in. They even put meat in the cauliflower cheese! The food was not clearly labelled either which didn’t help!
Overall we had a great stay at the Pasha’s Princess. It was fantastic value for money! We only stayed for a week but this was long enough as I think boredom would have set in if we stayed any longer. If you want a good value relaxing holiday then Pasha’s is the place for you!

Pasha's Princess is a great hotel in a nice location.
The food was lovely from breakfast through to dinner including all the various little snacks in between.
The pool area is also very nice however I personally enjoyed the beach as it was less busy and noisy, there are more than enough beds to go around and it would be almost impossible to fit any more in anyway, Being one of the 'Scottish' holidaymakers I don't personally recall there being any specific areas where 'the Scottish' reserved beds any more than the English, in fact everyone I spoke to was more than friendly and I don't recall there being any rivalry about this subject!! maybe I was on a different holiday!!
The staff could not do any more to help if they tried, they work long hard hours and are always smiling, the cocktails served by the bar staff were fab esecially the champange one.
The area around has plenty shops with good bargains to be had so long as you barter with them, we got some great bargains including clothes, perfume and nick nacks.
All in all this hotel was a pleasure to stay in, I would tell anyone looking for a relaxing holiday to Turkey to give this a try.
