5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2009

Just spent 14 nights at this wonderful hotel. Great staff. At poolside bars and restaraunts. Good food allround. Very clean rooms. Great pool. Went with wife and 10 year old son. Never saw him all day had so much to do. Swimming. table tennis. football. basketball. tennis courts. Have been to many 5 star hotels over the years. But for vaue for money you would find it hard to beat. Fly to izmer if you can. nearer than bodrum airport.

It's everything you could want from an All inclusive complex. Our children had the best time there. Everything we wanted from a holiday was catered for. Our childeren are 6 and 8 and they loved it, there was so many things they could do, kids clubs, table tennis, disco's, swimming indoors and out, all in a safe friendly environment. There were no hidden costs. So if they wanted 3 ice creams in a row they could. Drinks were freely available, and food was non stop. The rooms were very clean and nicely done out. A great holiday had by us. Only a week was not long enough.

The hotel is situated down a sweeping drive off the main dual carriageway into Kusadasi, about 5kms away. Once inside the hotel grounds the road noise is negligible and as the hotel is set fronting the beach, is not an inhibiting feature. The spacious and elegant lobby is equalled in style by the professionalism and friendliness of the receptionists. Your luggage is taken to your room, as you check in.

We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Suite due to overbooking, and the hotel was at full capacity. Our lounge and separate bedroom had two balconies overlooking the side of the hotel and the sea, one for morning and one for the afternoon and evening sun. The first thing that struck me was the exceptional cleanliness and the spaciousness of the bathrooms. Our two teenage boys had camp beds made up in the lounge with a separate toilet off. Our bedroom had an ample ensuite, very clean, but the shower did not come up to 5* standard. Wardrobe space for hanging and folding clothes was more than sufficient, and contained a safe for valuables. A complimentary basket of fruit and bottle of wine completed the welcome.

The hotel operates an 'all-inclusive' package, but you are not forced to wear ghastly wristbands indicating your status, you are simply issued with credit card type authorisation, and, whilst you are advised to keep the cards on you at all times, no-one asked to see ours the entire week. There is a large, elegant dining area housing multiple buffet stations, with every choice of salad, and hot and cold dishes, a sizeable outside dining area overlooking the sea and aparty to spectacular sunsets, with bbq choices in the evening, the fresh fish was just stunning. All complimented by immaculate linen, crockery and cutlery. At breakfast the bbq stations became egg stations, omelette or fried. Breakfast choices inside covered every possible palate. Cereals, fruit, cheese, meat, a vast array of pastries, bread, jam and juices, coffee and a wide selection of teas, along with the usual suspects of sausage, scrambled or hard boiled egg, French toast and the very popular pancakes. The hotel also offers an 'a la carte' dining choice in the evening, you may choose from 'the fish/seafood restaurant’, 'the international' featuring a choice of European cuisine, and 'Turkish'. These can all be booked at the guest relations desk in the lobby. We sampled the Turkish restaurant on our last night and it was very good. Lovely succulent chunks of lamb in a rich tomato sauce and a rich yoghurt dip with warm unleavened bread were the highlights. Definitely 5*.

We found the not so 5* aspect of dining at lunchtime in the shape of the pizza/burger almost fast food, plastic restaurant by the pool. Avoid at all costs. The pizza was just about edible, the burgers looked horrible and the chips a soggy mess. The staff were totally indifferent and keen for you to leave as soon as you could. Which brings up the issue of service. It was variable. 5* treatment from reception, with a smile, no query too much trouble, car hire was organised efficiently and effectively. Equally at the guest relations desk, superb efficient and friendly service. The waiting staff, a different matter. There was certainly an element of a surly, almost recalcitrant manner at first, with some of the staff. However, if one is persistent with a smile and an effort to say thank you in Turkish
every time, once they start to get to know you, their manner thaws. It certainly isn't like that with all the staff, and really shouldn't be necessary at all. Having said that, the hotel was at full stretch, and each waiter worked every shift, and at no time did we feel neglected or badly served.

The hotel has 3 pool areas and a 'beach side'. We found the areas around the main pool, with separate shallow childrens' pool, very crowded, beds elbow to elbow. A separate pool off to the right, seemed slightly less crowded, but still overly occupied. We preferred the beach area, a platform of sand, fronted by a stone pathway with steps down into the very clear, clean sea. This is not a beach for small children. The steps are ladder steps, like those you find in swimming pools, and you are immediately in over a metre in depth. The beach is served by a bar and with volley ball and petanque to hand on shore and jet ski, inflatable rides, water-skiing, paragliding and scuba diving all on offer (jet ski and inflatable cost TL20 for a generous 15 mins), there is a lot to do. And more importantly lie back and watch!! I thought the noise of the jet ski might be intrusive, but they have to go far out into the bay before they can let rip, so minimal noise pollution.

A jetty leads out from the walkway and for a section of this you can relax on bean bags, watching the sea life drift under you. The far section of the jetty houses four cabanas, wooden structures with a coconut matting roof, complete with sun beds, fan, minibar, daybeds, floaty curtains and the service of a barman who will replenish your drinks hourly and also brings fresh fruit at midday and ice-cream around four. All for 50 euro for the day. Definitely worth a little last day decadence.

Another decadence is the wonderful spa in the hotel. I took advantage of a special offer to have a full Turkish spa experience for 60 euros. It was just brilliant. Scrubbed and rubbed, and massaged and rested then cleansed and massaged again, I even fell asleep!! There are many different packages the spa offers, just ran out of time to try them all.

The Hotel is ideally positioned to be close enough to, but far enough from the delights of Kusadasi. It is a short taxi ride (always taxis at the end of the drive 20TL) into town, or experience a dolman, for half the price. We went at 10 in the morning for my husband to have a Turkish barber experience, yes, they even waxed his ears. Kusadasi has been called a brash Las Vegas but we certainly didn't see that side, but neither did we venture in at night. It was a delight to barter in the shops, no offense taken if you walked away. There is a huge market on Wednesdays where all genuine fakes are sold! A lovely diversion and experience. The hotel is also 20kms away from Epheseus, and other historic sites not much further away. Trips can be booked through the hotel guest relations, and most likely your holiday rep will try and arrange your trips, but I would suggest hiring a car and doing it yourself. We hired a car for 50 pounds for 24 hours and drove the coast road to Sepherisar, it was stunning.

Fantasia is a very special hotel with a lovely luxurious feel. The bar areas are tranquil and relaxed, there is nightly entertainment, including kiddies disco, set in the unobtrusive amphitheatre, you are not obliged to attend if it is not your thing, the belly dancing was good, in our opinion, the Mr and Mrs contest we couldn't possibly comment on. It made for a very entertaining and relaxing holiday. I would highly recommend it for families especially, but also culture vultures too, as it so ideally placed.

It was not bad, but could be better. I was there 6 nights and just came back.
Pros: beautiful pool and garden, kind and respectful staff, nice lobby, big hotel with 3 pools.
Cons: Although it is a 5star hotel, they do not provide slippery, toothpaste,toothbrush,hair conditioner,comb(all 5star hotels in my country provide these accessories).Water pressure in the shower was low.Safety box is with key, and not with password so you have to carry the key anywhere with yourself!!Although it is all inclusive,many things is not free like minibar,massage,playstation for children and some cocktails in pool bars and into the last day you have to ask if it is free or not!!I think when you pay 1000 dollars for ALL INCLUSIVE, then mini bars or a cocktail charge is a shame on them. Animation team is really weak. There is 30 min mini disco show for children between 9 and 9:30 pm, that is the same show and dance every night and after the first night become boring. There is 30 min show on 10 pm that is most of the time boring. only beach party and comedy show is good and the rest is really bad. The nearby hotels that were 4star had better and longer show. till 9 pm there is no amusing show or plan for you except boring pool gym(15 min in the morning).you have to swim and sun bath and eat till 9 pm to have 60 min show that may or may not amusing. No air condition in elevator and are really warm. I did not like foods for lunch and dinner. There are many plates but most of them are vegetable and appetizer and there are only 2-3 main courses that are not delicious at all. I have not seen all these bad dessert in a place all together!!Its sea is really dirty and you do not dare to swim in it. As a summery I think it is not cost effective to go to this hotel. You can find cheaper and more amusing hotels.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in June, this hotel is by far the best all inc we have experienced. our whole stay was just perfect, could not fault anything. staff were professional and friendly. hotel itself is immaculate, the drinks were great too, usually wine is not its best in all inc deals but the wine they served was lovely. entertainment with the animation team was fun, they work very very hard. my son who is 15 loved the sports, volley ball on the beach, water polo, darts etc , I woul def recommend this hotel and resort. went to Kusadasi a few times , very nice. The food was also really nice, lots to choose from and the grill outside every night was delicious. some reviews mentioned the cats, they are not as bad as some people are saying, dont let that put you off. overall we had a fantasic time and will def consider going back... we stayed in room 350 which is one of the larger family rooms. it looks out over the entrance to the hotel and a nice side sea view of the bay. i pre booked this room through the recommendation from another trip adviser member, and we got it, so we were delighted with the extra space. wardrobe space is very limited but we managed. on arrival you are served with a nice cocktail. nice touch at the start of yorur holiday.

We stayed two nights at this hotel Kusdasi Turkey in June 2009. We had just come from the Greek Islands and arrived from an over night ferry from Paros Island in Greece. We booked through lastminute.com for two nights all inclusive for $133 Pounds. Which worked out to about $266 Canadian which included all of our meals and drinks. So the value was really good. The hotel is nice and clean. The room was spacious, had air conditioning, TV, a safe, and was only a 15 minute bus which costs $1 Euro per person and comes very frequently from outside the hotel into town. The only negative would be that the city center where the port is is about 15 min by bus away and about a $20 to $25 Euro taxi. The food at the hotel was very good and had a large variety including lots of salads. The front desk staff were very helpful and their English was good which was helpful. There is a tennis court, pool table, turkish bath, fitness center, doctor office on site and barber on site. I was very happy with the hotel and would come again. We checked out on our last day and they let us stay around the pool and hotel until we had to catch our bus at night time to Istanbul.

We booked this holiday 6 weeks before leaving. We were a family of 4 mum/dad a 21 year old daughter and 16 year old son, just finished his GCSE's.

We were very apprehensive on booking a holiday to Turkey, as so many people have negative thoughts. This hotel, had fantastic staff, very helpful, and very pleasant natured. So many people pick fault at the tiniest of problems. We found this hotel to be of excellent standard, food was plentiful, and excellent in choice, out of the 3 a la carte resturants 2 were fantastic, especially the Turkey. The location of the hotel suited our needs. We are not pub, club folk, and like to keep ourselves to ourselves. We visited Kusadasi for a trip, 5 km away, and caught a local bus from outside the hotel and a return ticket cost 4 euro's. My daughter went for a night on the town, and felt very safe, the hotel put on a bus, plus entry to nightclub and first drink cost 20 Turkish Lire. She arrived back safely at the hotel at 4am, happy with the experience, (but may I add she did not drink alchol as she wanted to keep her wits about her)

The rooms are adequate, but a little on the small side, but well maintained.

A few tips:

Take a small jar of coffee - maids don't replace once used up.
Entertainment - Daytime is not good.
Try and book good flight times - Transfer from Bodrum airport has lovely scenery to be taken in although its a 2 hour transfer.
Pool side - very busy and sun beds very close to each other


Just to say : Wine is palatable, and drinks are of a good strength.


I can recommend this for a quiet sunshine holiday in good quality surroundings.
