Spent 14 days at Iberotel Palm Garden and cant complain.
We arrived at 00.30 in the night, got a welcome drink, were asked if we are hungry (we were not, we needed a good sleep):)
The bags arrived to our room two minutes after us.
We did have a family room, (two separate rooms + toilet and bathroom with shower + balcony). The room was spacious, daily cleaned and very well kept by our maid.
The pool area was also clean and we had no problems with getting sunbeds, towels, etc. I cant complain about anybody ruling the pool, or splashing us. This hotel is oriented mostly on families with children so I would say it is quite quiet. No drunken yougsters etc. Yes of course 75% of guests are German and therefore the club and activities were mostly carried out in German, but we did not have problem talking to the animators in English. Of course children could have problem when not speaking German. In fact we liked the fact there were not many guests from Slovakia.
The beach was OK, with small stones. Again no problems with subeds, towels, ...
But there were two things that made this hotel special to me.
First of all the staff. They were incredible, helpful, smiling, no problem talking with them, sorting all our problems ... Our big thanks goes to guys at reception desk.
Second was the food. Large variety and available whole day long + midnight snack:).
I have to comment the previous report about most of the lunch being cold. The lunch was served on two places, both of them served hot food.
You could also have a coffee and cakes in the afternoon and ice cream. The diners were excelent, loads of food and perfect sweets, pancakes, ...+ each evening had different extra specialities (turkish, seafood, ...)
Quite important is than none of us had any stomach problems (some people complain in countries like Egypt). Overall the food is one of the best things at this hotel.
Another positive is the grounds. You dont live in a big hotel, but 1 floor small buildings (aprox. 30 rooms each) surrounded by lots of green, trees, flowers etc.
The evening programme was in German. As the programme is made for children those not speaking German may have problems i agree with that
Well but as this hotel belongs to TUI, which is German, we were informed about this fact at the time of the booking.
You can use tenis court here, minigolf, table tennis ...
The hotel is really rather isolated, but I would say like most of the summer hotel centres anywhere. There is a shop centre in the front of the hotel (with own ice rink:) ) and with souvenir shop.
We found out that it is cheaper for some products than market in Manavgat. But market in Manavgat (every monday a big one and thursday a small one) is good when yopu need "original" Nike, Puma, or whatever bag, t-shirt etc:D Well and also for typical turkish delights. Of course you MUST bargain with the seller and you can beat down the prices to the half of the first sum.
Also make sure you take a trip to local "Hammamet" massage centres. There is one also in the hotel , but we didnt go there so I cant rate it.
Overall we have spent fantastic 14 days at Iberotel Palm Garden and are looking forward to return some time.
