“Wonderful Setting with an Amazing Beach!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Spent 5 nights in this Hotel during the Mid of September. The Hotel is located around 15min drive from Kusudasi center. Overall quality of the Hotel is good. Staff speak English, and are very cooperative. Rooms are basic and are cleaned everyday. Swimming pools and Beach are the best part of this Hotel, they are perfect and fun! The Turkish Bath is free of charge including the Sauna.
Food is a minus :-( thought there is a lot of variety, it lacks the proper Turkish taste. The Sweets are fine, but not Wow. After second day, food becomes repetitive and boring.
I would recommend this Hotel to families, it is children friendly.
Enjoy!

Room Tip: I stayed on the first floor, things were fine.

Surmeli is by far the best hotel I've stayed in during a summer vacation in Turkey.
I spent a September week there with my boyfriend and we were given a room in one of the additional buildings, rather than the main hotel building. The room was exceptionally quiet and we could enjoy the sea view from it. Towels were changed daily and the room was kept very clean. We were supplied with fresh mineral water on a daily basis.

Surmeli has a great beach that is very clean. There are several swimming pools, as well, though we spent the entire vacation on the beach. One of the pools has animation and activities, while the other is dedicated to peaceful relaxation.

Great food and great entertainment! There was a dance performance during Turkish night and all of the restaurant staff were dressed accordingly. Food was fresh and delicious. There were many options, including grilled meat that was cooked on the spot.

Surmeli is located very near Kusadasi and there are regular vans that will take you to the city. It is also close to Ephesus, which makes it the perfect spot for trips.

Room Tip: If possible, pick a room that is in one of the additional buildings.

It was our first time in Turkey. We absolutely adore the resort and the beach. Weather was perfect, just what you want after rainy London, +30 and not a single cloud on the sky!

Upon arrival we were upgraded free of charge for a bigger room with pool and sea view. Room was great size with balcony, clean and tidy, although not 5star hotel standard (no tea/coffee,no sockets adapters etc.)

Food was slightly repetitive but good quality and nice selection of grilled meats for at the main restaurant.

Overall service was good, stuff smiley and friendly probably apart from the reception team.

Absolutely loved attention to detail at Sürmeli, beautiful walkways, fauntains, lighting throughout and even Turkish lady baking bread on the beach ...

We definitely would love to come back here again!

Just got back from a weeks stay, 30 degrees plus, did not see a cloud!. I will give this hotel five stars for value for money but not five stars for quality. Very clean but needs updating, staff all very friendly, food very plentiful but not the best for us but they have to cater for many nationalities and tastes. Would I go back? yes as I did this year as a late second holiday.

arrived late on 10th sept met with a cold drink and given a nice room on 6th floor. We travelled as a party of 5 and had adjoining rooms. The food is as expected repetitive but there is something for everyone. We know kusadasi quite well so ate out a few times. There is a drain smell at times but this is normal in turkey but is not noticeable all the time. There is plenty to do and the beach is nice as a change from the pool. We would definately come back. If you want to eat out quite a few restaurants will do free pick up and drop off.

Just came back from surmeli after ten days. We all had a lovely time, animation staff amanda, Casper and tattoo to name a few are fantastic people, nothing was too much trouble from anyone at the hotel, from the reception to the bar staff. Hotel grounds are very pretty and loads to do all day even a market on a Sunday in the grounds. The rooms were cleaned every day and I would highly recommend this hotel. Down side a bit far out from town but you can get a lift from Murphy's bar to town and back for nothing. Would definitely go back. Well done surmeli keep up all the good work
