“Glorrrrrious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Have just returned from a week at the Gloria Golf, a group of two adults & two boys aged 17. All agree it's been a fabulous week. Went on recommendation from sister & family who stayed there last year and after seeing their photos/videos couldn't wait to get there.

Have to agree with everything said previously, it has been a wonderful experience. The hotel staff, accommodation, food and surroundings are definitely 5 star rated, nothing was too much trouble and all the staff we encountered were very friendly and polite. Maybe we were there when it was a little quieter but we certainly had no trouble finding beds around the pool, on the beach or on the pier.

A huge advantage is the fact that no cash is accepted anywhere and there are no bands to wear, everything just goes on the room card.

We would have no hesitation in booking again, the only reason not to is that there are too many other places to Visit. This is the first time we have been away and not either hired a car or gone on any trips, we just didn't feel the need.

Room Tip: We had two double rooms in the hotel. Ours was perfect in that it faced the water slide area which...

Fourth stay at Gloria with the family. Superb resort which looks to improve every year. Outstanding salsa teacher Claudia and helpful hostess Daria. New g venture outdoor club facility is good, though too much Ibiza like undanceable music played and salsa band needs to reboot percussion section, which cannot distinguish mambo from cha from merengue beat. Great pub bands. Friendly Gogi kids club, though this time felt more British Airways rather than Singapore Airlines and management has ripped out car toys in cynical ploy to encourage uptrading to the paid for Gogi jungle. Great fresh grilled fish and sumptuous desserts, though new Chinese chef over spices the food. Great cocktail menu and truly all inclusive holiday. Fun rough sea, though pebbles need to be cleared. Absurd lounge hogging behaviour should be outlawed. Quite good entertainments though getting a bit familiar and could do with a refresh. Scant recognition for loyalty suggests management needs to sharpen up.

A truly fantastic holiday! Went to Gloria Golf as a family with 2 teenage kids after recommendations from friends who came last year. Stayed at the family suites and were blown away by the resort. Never been to Turkey before and was a little nervous about how it would be. We needn't have been as the staff were courteous, impeccably well mannered and most helpful. It's a 5 star resort and you really feel as though you are in heaven. The food is absolutely delicious and I cannot understand previous reviewers who couldn't get an a la carte table. We were able to book a table for the next day with no problem at all the a la carte restaurants. The food was delicious in each and every one. The main buffet is also very good and the food is a work of art.
Serving of drinks outside at (by pool) dinner time was a little slow at times however it was quite busy. The best part by far was the sushi restaurant which sits in the area between the a la carte restaurants. Here the highly skilled sushi chef will prepare sushi of your choice with skill and flair. It was just delicious. Ended up eating here most evenings!
Cannot fault the facilities, the pools, slides, bars, loos etc. everything was so clean and kept clean all day. Loved the lobby bar for an after dinner drink, worked our way through the extensive cocktail menu!
The family suites have their own pool with small restaurant and bar. We went here every day for breakfast and lunch. The service was outstanding. Always very polite, discrete and very helpful. We loved Soner and Zayneb and the trainee Esra who never failed to be cheerful and professional.
Rooms were clean, comfortable and ideal for our needs. The site is vast and we made good use of the golf buggies that you could ask for a lift in. We never felt the need to leave the resort at all as there was so much to do once inside. The beach, pier and pools were perfect and plenty of places to sit and relax.
I would agree with a previous reviewer that perhaps a list of things going on and entertainments at the arena/animations etc could be given to people when they check in. We didn't discover quite a few things and places until well into the holiday. Having a list of what's going on and where, would've been helpful, but I had to go ask at reception for this as it wasn't provided.
We had a late check out no problem. Being able to use the spa facilities afterwards was great as we had a late flight.
We would have no hesitation in coming back to the Gloria Golf and intend on coming back next year. It was perfect for our needs and the whole family loved it. What more can you ask for, beautiful hotel, great food, all inclusive-so no dipping into your wallet all day and glorious weather. Loved it! Well done Gloria Golf, you have got it just right!

We stayed here for two weeks at the end of July and it was just brilliant.
The food was fantastic, especially the pub and Turkish restaurants. The animation was out of this world, incredible quality !! The room was lovely. The staff were so friendly and lovely with our children. The kids club was absolutely brilliant and despite the fact that my son was the only English speaking child they made him so welcome and he loved every second of his time there. He still asks when he can go back and see the lovely ladies.
Lots of people complain about the Russians but we had no issues with them at all, there were always free sunbeads and they were perfectly polite.
Ask about the beach parties as they don't seem to advertise them and they are a lot of fun.
I have absolutely no complaints, would highly recommend it and will definitely return.
One slightly negative comment would be to avoid the zoo, it was very messy and quite unsafe for the children.

We stayed with a family of 5 in a Gloria Villa. The Villas are beautifully appointed - bathrooms could be bigger but otherwise no complaints. Huge balcony and loungers. We were all inclusive - the all inclusive wines are very nice and we are fussy wine drinkers. The kids could get unlimited icecreams. In the villa we were considered VIP guests so had easy access to the a la carte restaurants and lovely reception staff who were exceptionally helpful. Waterpark great and never a rush for pool loungers - plenty available. Children safe to wander around the resort. Great evening entertainment and games during the day. Kids club okay for up to about 7 years old, but older than that not much organised entertainment. But there were so many kids around that our children had lots of friends to play with. Highly recommended. Only problem is the bucket airlines that fly to Antalya - not too much choice - Thomas Cook and Monarch from the UK.

We have been to the Gloria a number of times since 2005 and whilst there have been many improvements to rooms, facilities and entertainment, the staff attitude has unfortunately declined.

We have a loyalty card but except for a daily newspaper, no other 'perks' are given as always the hotel is full. So late checkout is never an option for example.

They recognise the hotel is having problems but actually do absolutely nothing about it and they really aren't too bothered if you don't return because there are many people booking. For a new person arriving it is still amazing but the problems others have raised like never getting the A la carte restaurants are very real.

Standards are slipping and I hope Gloria recognise that customer service and loyalty should be paramount to their mission.

Just returned from a seven night stay at Gloria Golf. The welcome was fantastic and the rooms really nice. We had rooms on the third floor which is the same floor as reception. They gave my daughter the disabled access room which was right by the lifts and the noise of the lift and the cleaners polishing the floor disturbed her most nights. We were also given twin beds when we requested two doubles and one twin. But we did not address this with them and I am sure, had we done they would have done something to help.
Every area of the hotel and grounds were spotless and cannot be faulted.
When I booked the hotel I was worried about the amount of people there would be seeing as it was a massive resort, we were however very surprised as it never felt over crowded, with possibly the exception of meal times.
Around the pool and beach there were always loungers free and it was very peaceful.
We went fully inclusive but found although the food was plentiful the quality was just not there. Food on the buffet would often be cold and it would have been good to know what was being served where as we often missed where speciality foods that were being served. Booking one of the al a' carte restaurants was almost an impossibility but when I addressed this with the manager she was fantastic and acknowledged they had a problem which she said they were already looking to address.
Staff were amazing, helpful friendly and approachable. The entertainment was great and the Amphitheatre impressive.
The Spa was great, although expensive but then again all hotel treatments are overpriced, which is a shame as I would have had a lot more.
There are so many Russian visitors there that at times the children joked they felt we were holidaying in Russia and not Turkey.
We would definitely go back and would gladly recommend it to our friends.

Just a note, nothing to do with the hotel:
One thing I would have to point out to anyone going to Turkey is everything is priced in Euro's and Dollars! Not only in the hotel but even in the town and I believe this is wide spread all throughout Turkey.
This through us at first as we took Turkish Lira with us and then panicked as we thought we would be cashless the whole holiday but then our holiday rep told us that they had to accept Lira and we would just have to insist. This worked out but for most of the time we were first quoted in euros then had to ask them to tell us in Lira and then had to just accepted the conversion they did was correct as we were trying to tie in all of the currency's to work out what we were paying in pounds.

Room Tip: To stay close to everything book the main building but try to get rooms not on the third floor as it...
