We booked this holiday as our parents spent 2 weeks there last year and thoroughly recommended it..... even although I was not too pleased when my wife booked a trip to Turkey over Mexico for my birthday this hotel did not disappoint in any way.
Pre arrival we emailed the hotel to request an a-la carte booking for our 5th wedding anniversary which was met positively by the hotel who booked us a lovely meal in the Italian. The personal touch was continued on our anniversary day with flowers delivered to room and a beautiful table set and welcome at the restaurant.
The hotel is about 70 mins from the airport and as we arrived in the middle of the night we were dropped off at the maiin road and ferried to the reception on a buggy, where we were greeted with a champagne and cold towel whilst we checked in with the lovely staff.
We had a room in the villa area which we preferred (had a feeling of exclusivity to it) and was set in the perfectly maintained mature gardens and pine forrest.
The room was large, tiled floors and tv with a few English speaking channels and music. Mini-bar replinished daily with soft drinks (maybe bottles of beer could have been included like other hotels I have been to). The room was very modern and very comfortable and SPOTLESS and remained that way due to the attentive cleaner each day. The bed was very comfortable and aircon was quiet and digitally controlled.
It was a 5 min walk to the reception / beach / pools from villa rooms and again through beautiful gardens.
Restaurants - main buffet restaurant is spotless with a wide variety of food on offer every night with themed evenings throughout our stay. Outside there were food stations cooking freshly prepared / cooked to order foods. Having stayed at a large number of all inclusive resorts (including Sandals Grande St Lucian - at a heavy cost!) I can honestly say that Hotel Turquoise is the best food / drink package i have had in an all-inclusive hotel outwith Sandals!! The food was splendid. We ate at 2 of the a-la-carte restaurants - Italian and Chinese and both were fantastic - airconed and splendid service, we did not go to Turkish as it was near our room and outside (temperatures were in 40's when we were there!). I would have loved the fish but my wife didn't fancy it but heard great reviews of it.
For lunch we went to the snack area where you could dine in more relaxed atomosphere to buffet main restaurant (ie topless for men) which was welcome in heat. Kids ate at the kids snack area some days which had the usual chips, burgers, nuggets sausages and lovely ice cream.
Drinks are of reasonable quality, red wine is best I have had all-inclusive (outwith Sandals) and its 24 hours should you wish it.
Staff are so friendly and attentive throughout every area of the hotel (only 1 person was not - owner of the sub let market and toy shop who barred us due to our 18 month old daring to touch a toy car (no damage / disruption caused "NO BUY NO TOUCH" was his quote as he forgot that we had spent about £100 in his shop in first week!!, on pointing this out I was ordered out his overpriced shop so we used the one in hotel next door or SIDE). A few other guests commented on how abrupt he was. He is not hotel staff ..... THEY ARE ALL FANTASTIC.
Kids club staff are brilliant with kids.
Beach is lovely and well maintained, hotel is right on beach front and it is a 25 min walk along beach to SIDE where you will find restaurants, town and shops. There is a regular bus service to Mangavat and SIDE (every 10 - 15 mins and only costs about 80p each way). Both towns worth a visit.
Hotel puts on shows every 2nd night in Ampitheatre wish are good and there is usually live music on in main bar area (although not every night which is a pity).
Swimming pools are very clean and the Aquapark is great for kids..... ok and for adults.
Would we recomment this hotel or go back.......???? Most definetly.
Well done to the management and staff for a very professionally run hotel,with excellent staff.
