I stayed in this hotel with my family for third time. In Tekirova you can certainly find more expensive and more exclusive hotels but... you wont avoid Russians, you must ignore them. But in this hotel you can also meet holiday makers from Turkey, which I find very interesting and somehow it assures me about quality of this hotel.
This is a huge complex with many tourists, who usually want too be on the beach at the same time and eat at the same time as you want :-)
The beach - huge with lot of sun beds and umbrellas. If you want to have more space stay near water sports center (there were always plenty of free beds) and this year they have set up a adults only zone (no one was there because I think people were thinking it is for nudist, but later one of the staff members denied this and explained it to me). Dont expect Caribbean sand this is a pebble beach or rough sand. Its good to have water shoes, they make "life" easier. Water is like crystal glass and warm too.There is boat free zone so you don't need to be afraid of boats. Beach towels are available for free and you can change them every day.
Garden - our favorite part of the hotel. Its is huge with perfectly cut lawns, trees, bushes and flowers. Footpaths are great for morning run. Trees are protecting the garden from direct sun so the climate is pleasant during hot summer days.
Rooms - every year we stayed in club room located in the garden. Rooms are situated in max.3 storey buildings. Room was always clean, towels changed daily (or you can help environment and use them for more days), every day we had a bottle of water ready for us. For Europeans it is not recommended to drink water from tap in Turkey. But you can clean your teeth without problem.
Food and drinks - lots of food and lots of drinks. Food - snacks, sweets, international, we preferred Turkish or Mediterranean food (fish, meat, local salty and sweet pastry). Plenty of salads or just raw vegetables and fruits.I cant stay hungry. Drinks - usual local alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, Efes is a good beer, I recommend "Airan" local sour milk drink that is salty and hydrates you much better than water. And if you want something stronger order Airan and vodka and then mix it together.
Transfer - Tekirova is the last resort city south west from Antalya. It takes 1,5 - 2 hours to get there from the airport.
Other facilities - I consider this hotel family friendly and also families with small kids will find everything they need. We used water sports offers (sea kayak), tennis courts, fitness center (it is not big but has everything for complex cardio / strength training). There also large spa, parts are free of charge (hamam, sauna, steam bath)
Last but not least - views to 2000 m high Mount Tahtali each time of the day from every spot in the resort is simply amazing.
