Just returned from Surmeli and impressions are fresh. First of all, I must say that the hotel is quite isolated and located pretty far from Kusadasi, so if you are the partying and staying night in pubs kind of people, better try somwhere else...because the taxi is expensive and public transportation somewhat unreliable as far as I could see...
This being said, I can tell you I had a very relaxing and enjoyable time. The hotel is very clean and staff helpful, although they don't smile a lot. The season hasn't quite started yet so there wasn't much hussle for chairs around the swimming pools, at the table or around the tennis courts, which was a good thing. But there wasn't very much going on as far as activities and entertainment go, so that wasn't so great. I suppose that latter in the season things change in both cases...
The food was a bit repetitive, but anybody would be able to find something to enjoy, in my oppinion., except breakfast, which was the same every day and horrible, with the same salami and cheese over and over again.
There are 4 swimming pools, one indoor, but the water was cold so we preffered the Turkish bath, which I recommend.
The animation team organizes a different activity each night : bingo, sketches, fire show, Turkish night. The disco starts quite late, at midnight and the music is a bit old but the atmosphere is nice. Sports available include tennis, basketball, voleyball, table tennis, minigolf. Water sports and game room were almost nonexistent at the moment, but they were just setting up I suppose
Overall, a good experience, with plenty of sports, rest and relaxation .
