“Good hotel, great spa and great views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Just spent October half term at the Sealight Resort. Great hotel with good facilities, the staff are in the main very helpful.

Check in was very efficient and our bags were taken to our room for us which was a nice touch.

The rooms were clean and tidy but in some need of a little TLC - our shower leaked through the seal on to the floor - but certainly nothing to spoil our enjoyment. Mini bar was stocked everyday with at least 2 bottles of water and a couple of bottles of pop (although not diet).

The restaurant was clean, with a huge range of salads, breads and various dishes. The waiters were happy to help and serve drinks. We visited all 4 of the ala carte restaurants - the chinese was probably the best out of the 4. Be warned though if you don't like cats they are around the hotel - the waiter staff do shoo them away when they come into the restaurants but they do wander around the complex.

The pools were good albeit a little on the cold side. The water slides were great fun even for adults!

The spa was good, we had turkish baths - these were fab!!!

We used the tennis courts a few times - the animation staff were a little lapse and didn't really seem to animate anything.

The pianist & viola player on an evening were amazing - good variety of music and played most of the night.

The only downside to this hotel was that they were clearly closing down for the season as things that were advertised either weren't happening or didn't happen at the advertised times.

All in all we had a lovey time - great hotel!

Room Tip: Pool / sea view rooms are a must!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Returned from the Sealight on 6th October after thankfully only a weeks stay, so slightly surprised by recent excellent reviews unless those of us who travelled late September/early October were unlucky. (I doubt it)

Good points:
Deluxe Room, clean, beautiful views and sunsets from the jacuzzi
Sun terraces down to the beach
Bellboy, maid and Mursel a credit to otherwise dreadful staff
Dolmus service and minibus to beach
Ladies beach nearby
Cake/Ice cream bar
Trip to Ephesus
Weather

Bad points:
Poor quality food in both main restaurant and in Chinese al a cartes. (8.30 booking at chinese, first course arrived 9.45 and was disgusting!)
Disorganised dining room
Bar staff extremely bad service, especially at sealight bar.
Beer and wine drinkable, spirits and coffee dreadful.
Waiters for drinks in dining room ok if you tipped every visit
Wasps: made eating outside and at pool and beach bar impossible
Hard beds ( Its taken 4 weeks for my back to recover)
Remote location, not a pleasant walk anywhere around, especailly at night.
Before daybreak sun bed reservation by pool (laughable)
Transfer from airport 1 to 1.5 hours not 45 minutes
Entertainment, day and evening, non existant and not advertised where it was on.
Hastle in Kusadasi from shop keepers and eateries due to the large amount of cruise liner visits.
Not value for money.
Most people went out of the hotel or to bed early every evening.

We still had an enjoyable week, although an experience too, many Eastern Europeans displaying bad (drunken) behaviour, demanding vodka etc all day.
The best meal all week was at Ladies beach. I would not go all inclusive in Turkey again

This is a shame as the hotel could be lovely with some changes. I really do not see how it can be rated as 5* by anyone. We have travelled the world and If you want truly 5* go to Mexico.
I do not mind tipping for good/excellent service but do not expect to have to for normal service at an all inclusive resort.

Thomson have down graded this place from its Platinum status and I do not see it as a family resort either.

I would not return to this hotel or Resort, there are much nicer parts of Turkey to visit

Room Tip: Upgrade to a deluxe jacuzzi room, less noise and beautiful views

Flight from Newcastle to Izmir was fine but the transfer was longer than stated in the Thomson brochure, over 90 minutes and we were the first drop off!
Only pasta and soup was available when we arrived as if was after 9:30pm. Check was smooth but lengthy however the hotel was beautiful so a slight wait at Reception wasn't too bad.
Hotel room was clean and modern, the lifts were easily accessible too.
The pool was excellent, towels are removed before 8am, but there are notices saying this.
The food is quite 'samey' and the dining room is busy, but there is an excellent choice every day at every meal!
The kids club was ideal for my 7 year old and what I really liked was the outdoor 'cinema' with bean bags for children to flake out on, on a night time.
The only negative for this holiday was Thomson and their excursion to Aquafantasy (one of their hotels). The problem encountered still has not been resolved, and if you need to make a complaint to Thomson be warned, it isn't easy...and they don't respond within 28 days, even with arbitration from ABTA hasn't speeded them up. I'm led to believe this hotel isn't one of Thomson's platinum hotels anymore, which is a shame as the hotel was excellent...it was Thomson wasn't!
In summary, I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will hopefully revisit but I will not be travelling with Thomson ever again.

Room Tip: Pay the extra to upgrade, the room and view was lovely!

I've just got back from a weeks stay at sealight & it was the best holiday I've ever had. Rooms were spotless, pools and waterslides were great, food was outstanding and staff were so helpful. Special mention to Mürsel the waiter, he couldn't do enough for u, and the male animation team were great especially erdem :) can't wait to go back next October for 2 weeks! Seriously can't find a bad thing to say about it. 10/10 :D

Just a quick write up to say what a wonderful holiday we had last week at the Sealight. The rooms were spotless the staff exstreamly friendly and helpful.
The range of pools, watersides and the spa where all great and this would make an excellent destination for either families or couples.
The main town, Kusadashi is only 10 minutes bus ride away @ £0.80p or a taxi ride away at about £5.00.
The beach is within the hotel grounds and very nice and sandy. The food is excellent and hosts a really wide variety of fresh cooked food that would agree with all tastes.
All in all a great destination and holiday experience.
