“A good hotel but not at the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2010

I stayed at the Febeach hotel whilst at a nearby conference so I’m not your typical guest at an all inclusive hotel on the Antalyan coast!

The hotel is a fairly large and modern (built in 2008) with a nice swimming pool and a water slide too, but isn’t located on the beach as the name suggests. Rather, the beach is a short drive away, reachable by shuttle bus (every 10 mins), where the hotel has a patch of the beach with loungers and a bar and restaurant which I checked out after the conference finished.

Rooms are a good size and the bathroom facilities good but I did find the air conditioning noisy and a little ineffective on the first day: the room took an age to cool down. There is free wi-fi in the room which is great, but if you don’t have a laptop there is an internet access point where you have to pay.

There are plenty of facilities including shop, hairdresser and bowling, but these are come at a price over and above the all inclusive price as one would expect. The buffet restaurant is good – I didn’t try the a la carte.

Most of the guests at the hotel are German or Dutch so not all of the staff speak English, and most of the announcements for activities were not made in English. Staff are friendly though and will come and chat.

In terms of the location, it is away from the main town of Belek (I think there is a bus otherwise its 20 TL) and half an hour from Antalya (€70 return taxi fare).

We have just returned from our holiday at the FeBeach Hotel. 10 adults and 2 children aged 1 and 3. Even though this wasn't the most luxurious hotel I have been to in Turkey the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful by far. Everyone spoke English and I never had any problems communicating be it at the reception or restaurants. Food was excellent, lots of choice and even my 1 year old who never ate table food before was enjoying it. I was surprised I didn't have to use my baby food jars that I had brought along. There was another English family with two small children at the hotel and about 7 other adults. Kids entertainment was in German due to the majority of kids being German but that didn't stop my one year old jumping to the sound of music during evening shows and my 3 year old started counting eins, zwei, drei by the end of the holiday. it looks like the hotel has not paired up with any Russian travel agencies as there were no Russians in site at this hotel (unlike others in Turkey). Entertainment for the adults was brilliant too and all the Swedish girls in the animation team didn't go unnoticed by the young men in our party. Thank you to everyone at FeBeach for making our holiday wonderful. We hope to see you next year.

We arrived early yesterday after poor flight. Hotel porter took.the cases to the room and the receptionist new who we were before we could say our names. Ok the facts we didn't get a seaview room but for the money we paid I'm not complaining . The room is good clean and everything works I.e hair drier tell etc. Most importantly the air con in the room is great and works we you tell it. The pools are great and service is good as well. The hotel is mainly filled with dutch and German holiday makers I would say 70% families. Everyone is polite and the.children are.so.well behaved the children's entertainment is mainly in German but they are catering for their audience. Food is good great selection and drinks or ok as they are local drinks I.e beer we booked through alpharooms and the deal was good shame the flight was delayed 4 hours. Personally I feel this hotel is good value for money and the staff and holiday makers happy and cheerfull .

Hi
We have just returned from a week in the Febeach Resort and Spa in Belek. The Hotel is fantastic, I can not fault the cleanliness, food, facilities, rooms, well anything other than we where the only English People there. In the whole hotel which is large, there was not one other English Person. Don't get me wrong we have nothing against German people or their language, just we dont speak it and our children could not use the childrens club because they did not understand anyone, which was a real shame because the reps where excellent. I would highly recommend the hotel to German speaking guests, but English people unfortunatley need to stay clear unless you dont mind a lonely holiday. The Majority of the staff only spoke Turkish or German, we did find a couple who could speak some English and they tried to help us as much as possible.
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere and you do need to get a taxi to go into Belek itself or the surrounding areas, which are very nice with lots of shops. Our children didnt want to leave the hotel due to the 6 outdoor pools with excellent waterslides. The hotel has everything you need including a free regular bus to the beach which also has a beach bar and restaurant you can get your all inclusive snacks and drinks in.
Overall an excellent hotel with excellent facilities just not suitable for English speaking families,which is such a shame

OK service but everything in german and hardly anything in english writing or spoken. No bathrobes available at a spa is below expectation. Food was ok, but local beer and spirits hardly drinkable. Redwine acceptable.

Pros:
Good buffet
Friendly waiting staff
Very clean
Resort activities (spa, pools, tennis, bowling, billiard, etc)

Cons:
Front-desk staff (neither friendly nor helpful)
Hard beds (did not have a good night's rest)
Paper thin doors (could hear everything going on)
Poor location (have to take a bus or cab to get anywhere, including the beach)

The hotel is definitely not a 5 star property. At first glance, it seems to impress, but 5 star hotels separate themselves in the details (too many to list). None-the-less, it is good hotel. The all-inclusive buffet had a wide selection and we always left the dining table satisfied. The front-desk staff was quite unhelpful and at times rude. Whether inquiring about the "a-la carte" restaurant, the price of a dolmus to Antalya, or how much tip to leave at a hamam, the answers were flippant and annoyed.

The hotel caters to a mostly German clientèle (families or "older" couples), who at times are quite rambunctious (and hence the problem with the thin doors). I did not get a good night's sleep, given that the extremely hard beds (people with back problems would probably see this as a positive) and noisy guests (got woken up on multiple occasions).

The location is poor and one has to take either take a bus or taxi to go anywhere (30 minutes to Antalya, 45 minutes to Side, 7 minutes to Belek, 5 minutes to the beach). Luckily there's a stop for both right across the street and they have an in-house rental car agency.

I would not recommend the hotel to younger (<40 yrs.) couples or solo travelers. Probably a good choice for people wanting to lounge around the hotel for most of their stay.
