Just returned from a weeks vacation in this wonderful hotel.Booked last minute with First Choice Holidays who are part of the TUI group.The hotel is rated 5 star, and as we all know that is not the same as a 5 star here.But this hotel lives up to its rating in Turkey.Food is first class & the variety should meet every ones taste.Yes they do rehash a few dishes for the following day but the quality is still there & the presentation is excellent.Food is obtainable all day & alcohol from 11am till midnite all free on All Inclusive.The pool is not heated so be warned.We never had a problem with getting a sunbed, but as we all know there are fellow Europeans who still put there towels out at the crack of dawn.The hotel rule states no reserving sunbeds before 7am but we were never up this early to check.One small gripe is most of the staff can just speak pigeon English but can hold a decent conversation in German.There are a few shops in the basement of the hotel but if you want more there is a huge market 5 mins walking distance.Evening entertainment was every night,in there purpose built outside theatre. The acts were professional & some were outstanding.Only one night was there a show by there in house team
which was a Michael Jackson Tribute which was ok but needed a bit of fine tuning.We feel after the show had finished, there could have been more music in the lounge areas as in the 7 days we were there only two nights had a musician & singer. Tipping, I think is always a good idea,the service becomes much quicker & the drinks stronger & peanuts as well if you want them.We did not try the Disco as those days have long gone.The beach is at the back of the hotel.
