“a great week”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

My partner and I spent a week here during september. We had no idea what to expect as we had heard mixed reviews.
The welcome was friendly, the hotel very clean and very modern and the room while small was adequate. The services; bar , pool etc were first class and the all inclusive package was excellent value for money. I experienced my first turkish bath--wow-but the deep massage-well--maybe skip it next time.
We only discovered the beach( not the little one below the hotel ) on the last day and that was a pity.
however--a fantastic week that we both really enjoyed--we will certainly come back to this hotel.

Me and my husband were here for a week mid october. Had brilliant weather was very pleased with the hotel. We were happy with the food, and talking of myself I am a very fussy eater. I didnt have any problems at all. Only downfall was our massages. The therapists were very unprofessional. Ruined my last two days of my holiday. But Fantasia will be seeing us again next year, the spa will not be keeping us away from the hotel.
Thanks to the animation team too. They were funny guys.

I with my family stayed in the Fantasia hotel during a leisure trip to the turkey few days ago. Great property with wonderful amenities. We loved the stay there. Good rooms, neat bath rooms, great food, private beach, pools etc are some of the highlights. I got a very quick service from the hotel staff to arrange a doctor for my baby who fell sick during the trip.

Room Tip: Select those rooms which face the sea.

We did a week on a gulet and a week in a hotel booked with flightsandpackages.com. It was the most relaxing holiday we have ever been on. The gulet left from bodrum and sailed to various different bays. There were 12 of us on board(3 of these were crew). The other passangers were from sweden and finland. They could all speak very good english, so chatting to everyone was not a problem. All meals were included and the crew did a really good job of catering for everyone, including my daughter who is vegetarian. Drinks on board were extra but you didnt have to pay until the end of the week. It was great getting up in the morning and just jumping straight into the sea, then breakfast, then sleeping, then more swimming, lunch, swimming, sleeping and then evening meal. It could get very hot in the cabins at night, but we slept on deck under the stars.
The hotel fantasia in kusadasi was very good although it took us a fews days to get used to lots of people, after being on our little boat. Hotel very clean. Food was buffet style and did get a bit repetative but was still very good food. No problem getting a sunbed.
Flights and Packages sold us an excellent holiday and will be booking with them in the future.

Last minute decision for half term and we had worried because you do hear some mixed reports but we couldn't fault it. This was one of the best hotels we have stayed in. Spotless inside and out. Food and service excellent. fruit and wine was left as a surprise as they heard it was our anniversary - thank you. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Pools inside and out were immaculate. Spa and public areas spotless. Marble walls and floors and super decor throughout. Sea water was crystal clear and water sports reasonably priced with friendly staff. Plenty of sun beds around pool and on the beach. No one pushy or rude. The food is never ending and the quality and presentation was superb. Is more suited to adults and couples - - brilliant value for money - luxury at an amazing price. Taxis outside hotel were also very reasonably priced and again very friendly and helpful. Thank you to all at Hotel fantasia - you have got it just right. will defo return again.

Room Tip: Choose block A - have sea or side sea views - very quiet - block b is towards back of hotel and nea...

Just returned after 2 weeks in this hotel. The outstanding feature of our holiday was the wonderful weather, which varied from 25c to 35c each day.
The Hotel looks impressive initially, but it didn't take long to discover the shortcomings.

Pros
1 Staff, like all Turkish people we encountered, were friendly, courteous and helpful.
2 Hotel was spotlessly clean, and linens changed regularly
3 Pool area was large and well maintained
4

Cons.
1 Noise in bedroom, especially at night made sleep impossible. A/C was exceptionally loud (and not really effective). When door to balcony was left open, the road nose, as well as barking dogs, and delivery vehicles was unbearable.

2 Reception Staff were not well informed about facilities in hotel and gave conflicting information. ie..availability of wifi, restaurants etc.

3 Bedroom was adequate, but wardrobe space was near non existent. Clothes had to be hung on 6 hangers, for 2 people, and the depth of wardrobes was less then 8 inches.

4 Anyone who liked to go to the beach had to descend 73 steps from the pool area and 112 steps from the dining room....and climb back up again!! Definitely not suitable for mobility challenged

5 Free Wifi was restricted to a small airless room, THE LIBRARY, and to avail of wifi throughout the hotel there was a charge of Euro 3 per hour.

6 Meals were repetitive and not very appetising. Bread was good but pastries /cake were dry and tasteless. Main negative comments regarding meals concern...excessive recycling of uneaten food, tough dry meat, bony fish, tasteless salads, lots of fat laden deep fried food, and generally what could be described as slop. Certainly not a gourmet experience. And to top up the 'delights' of the dining experience, cats roamed freely both inside and outside the restaurant.

7 A la carte restaurants were all closed, so with the exception of a pizza/salad bar at lunch time, there was no avoiding the 'Restaurant Nostalgia'

8 Wine was freely available, poured by the glass and except for the Rose, was of poor quality.

9 The experience with the 'beautician' was something else. For 3 days I tried to make an appointment for a manicure. Excuses were given for her absense..."sickness, didn't turn up, gone to Istanbul etc etc." Eventually I did get to see her...and while I waited to have my nails painted, she curled her hair and chatted to the barber. Eventually she did the job and dismissed me saying they were dry. While getting money from my purse to pay her, my nails smudged, so obviously not dry. No apologies from her, just a repaint. And all this was carried out in a small cramped spasce where a gentleman was having his hair cut, and a lady had her feet in a basin of water. And throughout, the staff were constantly interrupted, answering calls from their private mobile phones

10 Dr Fish
Again avoid this take-on. "20 Euro for 30 mins, in a public area,,,a thoroughfare to the pool. My feet were in a tank of water with about 10 little fish which swam scared when anyone passed by, and that was constantly. There was no suggestion that I should wash my feet, before the treatment, no inspection for foot disease, and while I was there the attendant pestered me to buy my Kindle. Not a great experience in a deluxe hotel, and a total waste of money

11. After all of the above, the following might seem trivial, but I feel it reflects the poor standards. The lettering on the sign outside the hotel, has slipped down the board and is faded making it hard to read when approaching the hotel

12.Location is quite some distance from the town centre, and a very busy duel carriageway has to be crossed to get to the bus stop. Be warned.

13.The atmosphere in the hotel is very oppressive, with low ceilings and poor ventilation

14 Small animals are allowed in the hotel/bedrooms. Beware if you have allergies

15 Beach area, is not what it says on the tin.Although raked each day,so no litter/garbage, it is man made with builders sand which is coarse and dirty, staining towels, beachwear etc. Its not a safe area for children with a sheer drop over the side into the sea. However the barman more than compensates with his lively personality and great service

Would I recommend this hotel? Definitely not at the end of season, but have spoken to guests who swyayed there in June/July and the experience was altogether more positive,

Room Tip: Avoid any room facing away from the sea, as the noise polution will guarantee you will be awake all...

I would have liked to have reviewed this hotel higher, but simply couldn't, as we encountered persistent problems with issues in the hotel. The rooms were good enough, the hotel facilities were excellent. However, pretty much on a daily basis, one of our party were seeing guest relations at least once. There were several reasons. One was that there were 5 vegetarian guests in our party. The catering for this was dreadful, worsened by the fact that the snack bar kept adding meat onto everything which was ordered without requesting it. Also, a child in the party was misdiagnosed by the onsite doctor...an obvious mix up of bites as opposed to chicken pox. This was in between answering his mobile phone several times whilst not paying full attention. The list of guest relations issues was pretty endless, and I wrote a comprehensive complaint letter to obtain justification of the errors. I sent this 3 times, and left messages and emails around 10 times, before they were harried to reply. The manager's response was avoidance and weak, and very 'not bothered' about the incidents which occurred.

In short, I would not recommend this hotel, because when something goes wrong, they really didn't want to know. I am sure if nothing goes wrong, then everything is great.

There are lots of great hotels to pick from in Turkey, so bear this in mind when considering this one.
