I stayed at papillon ayscha from the 25th october for 1 week with my wife and two daughters aged 5 years and 8 months. We had an amazing time the hotel is beautiful and extremely well kept and very clean throughout. I have no idea how people can give this hotel a bad review and putting a 1 star from (kudrets) review is just pathetic because the hotel is first class. The gardens are kept immaculate with staff constantly watering and improving the grounds. The kids club is superb especially anna who works there doing face painting and looking after the kids so well. The food set up is very dramatic and there is a good choice the only downside is the food isnt kept at a great temperature but that was the only issue from the entire stay at papillon. The beach is very clean and well looked after and the sea is lovely and clear and enjoyed swimming there every day. All in all the hotel ticked all boxes and we would 110% go back and recommend to everyone the hotel is a defenite 5*. Thankyou Papillon for an amazing holiday :)

Room Tip: Try to choose a pool or garden view

I did not stay at this hotel but attended a conference for 3 days. One day someone sent me an envelope with a taxi and I went down to the enterence to meet the taxi. I waited about 20 minutes and no one came. Then someone from the hotel came and told me that a taxi left an envelope at the security point at the main gate. The gate is practically 5-6 minutes walk and this is supposed to be a 5 star hotel.
They did not let the taxi in for "securtiy reasons". These are all locally registered taxis and everbody knows who they are. Poor driver had to leave and told them he would be back to get his money. They did not bother to call the reception to check if there is someone waiting for the taxi.They don't care about you. The taxi lost time and money, I lost 35 minutes altogether.

This holiday was not just my holiday it was also where i had my wedding.
The rooms are fantastic, cleaned to a higth standard, they even come in and turn down your sheets and close your curtains for you and also your mini bar is restocked everyday.
When we first arrived i thought that they were a bit offish with us being English and most of the people staying at the hotel were German and other regions, but after a couple of days they were fantastic so i think that they are just shy people, the bar staff and wsaitresses could not do enough for you and as soon as your glass is empty you could just click your finger in and there would be another on its way. As for my wedding it is suppose to be the most memerable day of your life and i tell you what, they made it the best ever i could have ever imagined they were true to the word and made all my dreams come true it was fantastis, would recommend getting married at this hotel to anyone and holidaying here. The a la carte, flowers, decorated location everything was so much more than i had ever expected the only thing was that it rained on the weddeing day, so if you can imagine how impressed i am at having the venue inside then outside would be amazing. The food got a little repetative but what do you expect when you have to cater for so many people and lots of different variety of tastes, it was still very nice, i would recommend having the chinese a la carte here it was delicious and this deep fried ice cream that we had was lovely really gonna try and do this at home. Would def be going back in the future maybe every year to celebrate our anniversary. Big thanks to Sarah Brady for the organising and Anna for looking after the kids and keeping them all entertained. thanks to all the lovely staff. xxx

The Paillon Ayscha represents excellent value for money if you're planning a golfing holiday in the Belek area. I don't think it really lives up to it's 5 Star rating, but I'd certainly be happy to return. The food in the buffet dining room was well prepared and every night there was a good range of dishes, although most appeared every night, there appeared to be some "specials" each night. The a la carte dining was very good and the local wine, beer and spirits all proved to be very drinkable! This trip was a departure from spending almost 10 years golfing in the Algarve and proved to be an extremely enjoyable holiday, especially as the local courses are on par with the best that the Algarve has to offer, with maybe one exception. Our party of 12 certainly made the most of the hotel facilities especially the beach bar which proved to be a mecca for us all after several hours playing golf in the mid morning sun, followed by a swim in the sea. Overall a really enjoyable experience

Like so many my wife and I use Trip Advisor as a fair barometer of hotel quality and performance. Indeed, it has been a significant factor for many years in making our final choice of holiday destination but something went wrong this time!! Papillon Ayscha did not begin to live up to its popular acclaim for us at all. We arrived on 30th September; our room was on the third floor overlooking the gardens and pool area. A nice enough situation but the noise was unbearable at times especially when the hotel began a volume and bass competition with neighbouring hotels at past midnight!! Sadly this was often compounded by drunken, rowdy and obnoxious guests who on three seperate occasions woke us at past 2am in our first week. This was not just people having a good time; it was loutish behaviour at its worst and from groups of people who seemed to scare the staff who, in turn, seemed unwilling to challenge this behaviour!! The food in the main restaurant was average at best, was repetitive and worst, often luke warm. The two al la carte's (Mexican & Turkish) we went to were a bit of a saving grace and the food was very good with the Mexican close to excellent. Perhaps the biggest surprise was the staff? Having read so much about how pleasant they were I guess we had high expectations; it is true a handful (7 or 8) were extremely pleasant, helpful and hard working but the rest seemed largely demotivated and uninterested in everything except the end of their shift!! Having said all these things the first week of our holiday was not a disaster; it was more of a reality check whilst we realised we were in a mean average 3 star hotel and not a 5 star hotel to 'write home about'.

In the end most commercial propositions rely on the quality of management and supervision and on Sunday 9th October and the days that followed Papillon Ayscha completely failed in this important respect!! There was a massive storm that night with winds gusting to a reported 85mph; so bad was it that around 6 local people lost there lives in the Antalya district. The Belek coastline was devastated and on the Monday morning the damage was severe. All beach furniture, awnings, peirs, pontoons and bars etc were wrecked and inoperable; Papillon Ayschas main pool was also contaminated with silt, leaves and other garden material and the pumps were not working. No one's fault but what happened next certainly was. Weather conditions remained unpleasant with heavy rain showers and strong breezes confining guests to their rooms or the public rooms of their hotels for most of Monday (10th October). We all sat there waiting for Papillon Ayschas contingency plan to swing into operation but nothing happened at all; no extra staff, no lifting gear - nothing!! We realised very quickly the hotels objective was to turn the situation to there commercial advantage and begin closing all affected facilities for the winter. It must be said that neighbouring hotels - immediate neighbours and those further afield - all seemed to have a plan and some even reinstated their pools by the Monday afternoon but most by Tuesday. Papillon Ayschas pool was only up and running at 11.30am Thursday. In the meantime holiday reps were pressurised, especially by British guests, to tackle the hotel management about the facilities closure. In the end they reinstated the beach awnings, bars and food stands and all were providing something of a service by Thursday afternoon. I was involved personally in the 'negotiations' to re-open these facilities and frankly I found the management of the hotel clueless as to how to handle the situation especially the Operations Manager who seemed intent on wandering about looking important behaving arrogantly and acheiving little!!

I realise all those who rated this hotel highly did so for genuine reasons but the fact that recently a few others differ should ring alarm bells. Perhaps the hotel is resting on its laurels, I have no idea, but for me it just scrapes a 3* rating at best. Complacency and continued commercial success don't go together - let's hope the Papillon hotel group recognise that and put things right? Me? I am voting with my feet - never again will I give Papillon Hotels my custom!!

Just returned from Papillon Ayscha...Excellent hotel with the friendliest of Staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Food, especially the theme restaurants, excellent. Facilities, bedrooms, swimming pool and beach really good. For those who play golf (like myself) a golfers paradise and wives/partners have plenty to occupy themselves with while playing golf. Belek town is well worth a visit, especially on Saturday (Market day). Will definitely return to re-enjoy!

Room Tip: Room overlooking pool/sea allows morning sun so cooler in the evening.
