Me and the girlfirend stayed at Noa between 20/07/2013 - 27/07/2013. We only booked the break a week in advance and paid £540 per person for our one week stay.
The night we arrived at around 11pm and we were greeted with sandwiches and soft drinks which was a nice touch after travelling since 2pm. We were taken to our room with a sea view (as all rooms have) and were provided with free use of a safe for the week and also a stocked minibar which again was complimentary. Both nice little touches which arent often experienced.
The room was cleaned daily regardless of the time you left the room (2pm sometimes in my case) and nothing ever went missing. Although we were clever enough to use the safe which was provided FREE OF CHARGE.
We spent most days around the activity pool and was encouraged by Chico and the others to get involved. Around here we met many British couples and spent most of the week with them. If your reading this big hello to you all from Adam and Rach. The ratio of British to Turkish was small and i found that i was the only British person playing most of the games which was diificult at times with language barriers. However the Turkish holidaymakers were great and tried their best to involved me. Also seeing them around the hotel they always acknowledged me which i thought was brilliant of them being as my name was the only English word they could speak.
The hotel was a short walk (5 - 10mins) to Ladies Beach which had bars, shops and restaurants sitting alongside which was great for a change of scenary. A special mention to the Somewhere Else Irish bar which we eat at 3 times. Its often difficult to find somwhere that did a proper Full English due to the the Islamic nature of the country but this place did and it was the best breakfast i have ever tasted. I could not believe that a Turkish Chef had cooked it.
Outside of the hotel and up the small hill a bus can be caught taking you into Kusadasi town. This was called a Dolmus for those of you not having travelled to Turkey before (like us). For less than a pound per person they take you into town and are running every 10 minutes.
Another idea which what we did a few times was to get the number for Murphy's bar in Kusadasi. They have a minibus and will collect you upon calling them free of charge and simply ask you to have a drink in their bar. They also drop you back at the hotel free of charge when you have finished. We rang them on market day (Wednesday) and they picked us up and we had a drink before went round the market. Afterwards we went back and had food and then they dropped us back at the hotel. Thanks guys.
We decided not to do the trips with Thomson as these were expensive and involved a lot of travelling which we had done enough of to get there. However on the way to Ladies Beach there are many travel agents selling these trips for half the price and so i am lead to believe pick you up on exactly the same bus that Thomson do suggesting that Thomson may even be using these and taking a huge commission on top.
Back to the hotel itself the staff were friendly and polite and a special mention to Savac and "Mossy Man" (dubbed this due to mocking the girls who had been bit by standing behind them making buzzing noises in their ears). These worked mainly at and around the pool bar of an evening and were lovely. An absolute credit to the hotel.
The rooms were very modern with a good working air conditioning system which was very handy in the heat. We couldnt have really asked for a better room. The view from the balcony was the ocean for as far as they eye can see and the waves crashing against the sea wall of an evening was a lovely and soothing sound to send you to sleep.
The restaurant was open and and sat alongside the ocean with a lovely view of the sunset each evening when dining. The food was plentiful and if your not an overly fussy eater a nice enough meal can be made each night.
One free night at the a la carte is available to book with Guest Relations (next to reception). We went with Italian and chose steak. I would not recommend this as althoug the setting was perfect the food was far from and course by course the got worse. One of the other couples chose the Fish a la carte and said that this was amazing.
The animation team were lovely and a big hello to Chico and friends who made our holiday what it was. They involve everyone and really are lovely. He gave nicknames to all of the guys we spent the week with based on footballers (I was Alan Shearer).
In summary i would definately recommend this hotel for a nice relaxing child free break. The location is fine, the all inclusive food and drinks were good and the the staff and hotel itself was brilliant. Thanks NOA for a fantastic break.
