After booking a very budget holiday for 2 weeks at the end of September i was expecting a very budget hotel but this surpassed all expectations.
The staff were very friendly and spoke great English, and were willing to teach Turkish to me and a friend too.
Seyda in reception was amazing, always helpful and enjoyed a pleasant conversation and i hope she enjoys her time off afterabusy and hectic summer.
Mehmet the main bar man was an absolute soldier, always bubbly too and getting really involved and having fun on Turkish night along with the chef who i believe is also called Mehmet.
Simon another of the barmen was a querky character but a barrell of laughs i must say, little jokes here and there he was great fun to be around.
The maids were very polite and provided a great service and cleaned the rooms with fresh towels daily, and i'm sure if you asked they would have gone out of their way to get something for you too.
Entertainment in the hotel was good with a Turkish night on a Tuesday and BBQ night on a Saturday along with Karaoke, fire breathers, belly dancer, staff dancing it was all superb.
Side itself as a resort i feel has very little but give it time and i am sure it will grow into a fantastic tourist area, if this hotel could be picked up and put in Marmaris it would fit right in and provide an excellent base for the night life that Marmaris offers.
9.5/10 from me easily
Loved everyone at the hotel, especially Seyda in reception ;)
Would love to return in a few years after the development of Side abit.
