We just came home from a fabulous week in Kusadasi (Sept 8th - 15th) and I definitely would go back to Tropicana Gardens again next year based on the excellent experience we had.
It was my first sun holiday in a few years and Tropicana Gardens provided everything one would require from a sun holiday - i.e. enjoyment, entertainment, relaxation, warm hospitality, good food, friendly staff and a beautiful pool whereby to soak up the sun.
From the moment we arrived our bags were carried to our rooms. The rooms themselves were basic but very clean. Cleaning of the rooms and fresh towels were provided on a daily basis. The continental breakfast was a selection of bread, cereal, cheese and meats to choose from - this was free of charge but you could also purchase an Irish breakfast for minimal cost if you wished. In fact, the food on the menu was lovely and reasonably priced. I would recommend the chicken curry (thanks Danny) and the hot chicken sandwich for lunch.
The staff were superb especially Danny, Robbie, Dougal, Mimet, Baros, Emre, Joe, Kevin, Omar, Hasan and Martin - so friendly and helpful and most of the staff could speak English too which was very welcoming and helped maintain a relaxed easygoing atmosphere. Thank you to Robbie especially for helping me to learn and pronounce some basic Turkish phrases. We got a smile from Hasan when he spoke to us about his upcoming wedding and many little Hasans to come (haha). Best of luck to Danny in college and with his future career in business. It was great to be able to speak to these Turkish guys and learn more about them and their lives outside of Tropicana.
Baros and Emre are great dancers and supported the two main entertainers - Jack and Adam. The entertainment was comedic and again great fun. Adam and Jack involved the audience in all their acts and were friendly and engaging during the day by the pool. At no stage did we feel pressured to stay in the hotel by day or by night by any of the staff members or entertainers as some of the other reviews have suggested. During one of the days, Adam and Jack asked us if we wanted to buy their cd, and we thought what a great way to give a tip to the 2 entertainers and show our appreciation for their hospitality and fun personalities.
Overall, I would certainly recommend Tropicana Gardens to all age groups, be you single, married and/or have children. The entertainment is light and fun and the services provided are second to none. As I said in the beginning, we will be booking our stay in Tropicana Gardens for 2014 as soon as we can and we are counting down the months already.
We simply had a great time!!!!!
P.S. Thanks very much to the very hardworking Tropicana staff and entertainment boys - you really made our holiday one to remember. See you all again soon.
