On arrival check in was quick and easy. The hotel foyer is very impressive. Had room on the third floor with views over bay, and local area. Entry to room is a flat key which is swiped across key pad after pressing middle button. Takes awhile to get used to it. Safe costs £20 refundable deposit. Bathroom had hand held shower which was a pain and a plug in the sink which didn't fit.There is a fridge in the room with a payable mini bar but this came in useful when putting milk in for a morning tea and coffee. There are tea and coffee making facilities but there is only creamer available.A fresh bottle of water every day in room There is also a hairdyer available to use. The room had air con which was left on all day with little effect.The main downside to the room was being able to hear the call for morning prayers everyday at around 6am, please take ear plugs if a light sleeper. The hotel is very deceptive we never found our way around it and we were there for a week. There are 3 pools - indoor, salt water , and normal. There is a man made beach with a jetty and steps to go down into the water. There are bars which open at 10am by both outdoor pools and beach.
You could eat at this hotel most of the day. We arrived at 10pm to be informed that there was a light supper from 11.30pm until 12.30pm!!!. Breakfast starts at 7am, then there is continental breakfast, lunch, afternoon baked potatoes, sandwiches and ice cream to be followed by cakes and tea at around 5pm. the dinner at 7pm ! I put on 4lbs in weight .
There are also 3 al-a carte restaurants - sea food, Turkish and international included in your stay. All inclusive drinks stop at midnight.
There is a large comfortable bar inside the hotel, with a games room,with a good second hand book selection internet room .
On the second floor there are a number of shops which have prices in euros. Euros are popular in kusadasi due to the cruise ships . Excursions are in English sterling or euros ( Thomas Cook) .I got a bad exchange rate when paying in Turkish lira. A trip you must do is Ephesus , this is local and worth visiting. Another trip is getting the local dolmus from outside the hotel into kusadasi for the market on a wed afternoon costs around £1 each way
WI Fi is not free in the hotel but if you turn right ourside the hotel there are 2 bars where you can get it for the price of a drink. Also 5 min walk right of the hotel is a mini market /bazaar ( at the traffic lights ) that sells everything ( fake)
The hotel has loads of steps so please remember this when booking. I did see one gentleman with an invalid scooter bombing around though.
There is an entertainment team who try hard and at times be quite funny. They have their own stage.
Would I go back definitely yes, all the staff are friendly and helpful.
Thank you for a lovely holiday I now just have to get this weight of :)
