“1st time but will definitely go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Great hotel, fantastic food, great service, great facilities, plenty of pools to play in with children, water slides for over 10s, great place to stop with children very hot but plenty of refreshments available throughout the day. Staff all really friendly and unlike other hotels if there were queue jumpers they would send them to the back. Can't fault anything todo with the holiday, maybe just have more seating in the a la carte restaurant as only take 40 and hotel has capacity of 1500

Well, as the title says, this is a smashing hotel.
I travelled with my wife and 8 month old baby, as well as my mother & father in law, brother & sister in law and their young children.
Overall i think i would struggle to come up with negatives for this hotel. There are a few very very minor things i would say, like having to put towels on sunbeds at 7:30am if you wanted to be around the pool, and the occasional bland bit of evening entertainment, but that really is all.
(Plenty of room on the beach by the way, so dont even let that put you off)

We had asked for a cot to be put in our room, and when we arrived in the early hours to find it absent, i was not too happy. However, i told the porter and within a few minutes it was in our room ready for use. So no real drama there.

As others have said its the food that really puts a smile on your face! Loads and loads of choice and all lovely.

The only regret i have with this trip is booking through Thomas Cook, but thats a story for another day......

Well I was determined that in my trade you don't go back somewhere twice let alone 3 times. The kids won the battle though so it was with a little apprehension that we returned for a 3rd time. Having read about the changes I wondered if we would enjoy the holiday again...
The Papillon Belvil didn't disappoint. The new Papyland and water slides are a great addition. There are so many activities for kids and teenagers; A whole 'kids world' including Cinema screen; play station rooms; general arts and crafts; organised games; a great outside under cover play area; a separate kids pool with smaller slides; water fountains; jets etc. The new large water slides are fantastic - could do with a few more double inflatable rings though... The children's staff are great and my girls didn't want to leave new faces and those they have met before - e.g. Memo...
The restaurants were busy but food as always excellent. We enjoyed the A la Carte ones also.
The hotel was clean in all areas.
My only negative was that as we traveled with friends, we had to get up early if we wanted sun beds together (0630 is earlier than I get up at home). However beds were always available on beach. The hotel does need to look at ways of managing this as on occasion some beds had towels on them and were unused until later afternoon.

Our wedding anniversary was whilst we were away and we were spoiled by the hotel with bubbly; fruit; cake - thank you :-)

Evening entertainment for the kids was good - for adults we had a couple of 'not so good' but also some very good shows - and certainly the entertainment staff work hard to keep everyone entertained.

Staff were great - everyone is friendly and it feels like a second family -

Would we go back again? Probably....
Thanks to all :-)

This was our 4th visit to the hotel in 6 years. It is a fantastic hotel and everyone is really friendly and polite and it is always lovely to be remembered by the staff. The food is fantastic with so much choice. My family dislike eating out with me as I have a dairy allergy, but I have no trouble in finding lots to eat as the choice is so wide. Service was brilliant, as always. The hotel has an extremely high standard of cleanliness. This year we had two rooms, as my sons are 19 and 15, rather than a 2 bedroomed Bungalow. I could not fault the maids and they are always polite and speak. The new water park, slides and childrens area is fantastic, The main pool is lovely and so big that it never feels crowded. There is now a 18+ pool, (were the old slides use to be)though we never used it, we did see children using the pool. The amination team are absolutely fantastic and always so friendly and love to have a chat with you so they can inprove their english. They work very hard and there are lots and lots of activities for everyone (younger children/teenagers and adults), or if you just want to relax that's fine. There are always sunbeds available if not by the pools then on the beach. A bus regularly goes to Kadrie and taxi's are very reasonable for other towns. We will definately be back again!!

We heard lots of good reports about this hotel's food before we travelled. Boy, were they not kidding! We have travelled to many European destinations as a family and have had the 'all inclusive' food experience with varying degrees of satisfaction. This is the best we have ever experienced by a country mile! There was so much choice for every meal and it was all to an extraordinarily high standard, especially the show-cook areas in the evening. No the wonder there are so many people returning here year after. We cannot fault one single aspect of the place - even the mosquitos were politely absent. We travelled on 3rd August and had a bungalow room just minutes form the main complex, pool and entertainment area. The water park was superb and daytime activities non-stop. As for the staff? Without exception they were all polite, courteous and friendly. We rarely visit a place twice but I feel a repeat trip is on the cards for sure.

This was our 4th visit to Papillon Belvil. We travelled as a family of four which included my two 14 year old daughters plus our friends (also another family of four). I don't think I have ever visited a hotel where there have been so many repeat guests....it was like a reunion. Fantastic to catch up with guests we had made acquaintances with on previous visits (of all nationalities)..plus the many familiar faces of the animation and guest relations team (sad that Gurkan has departed!....onto bigger and brighter things.....he will be missed!).
The hotel itself is still spotlessly clean and the gardens kept immaculate. The new water park is amazing....the slides are fantastic. There is also an over 18's relax pool which is very welcoming if you want a quiet dip.
The food as always is plentiful and varied. We visited the a la carte on 3 occasions (the Mexican, Chinese and Turkish Grill)... the food was fantastic in all 3. My favourite being the Turkish grill, set at the beach bar, overlooking the sea. Such a beautiful setting for a family meal. I cannot fault the food in any way, perhaps my only suggestion would be an additional pizza oven....as the queue at lunchtimes can sometimes be very lengthy.
The entertainment gets better each year....we had pool parties, beach parties with fireworks and laser shows, beer parties....and the addition of a foam party. My teenage girls loved this ( as did the adults).
The animation team work extremely hard....special thanks to Memo and the beautiful Daria.
A big thank you to Merry who arranged the beautiful table decorations and a gorgeous chocolate cake (with their names decorated on the cake) for my friends wedding anniversary. It's the extra touches that make this hotel so special.
The only minor fault this year (and this was a first!), was with the maid and mini bar service. Although there were 4 of us in a room, a few times we were only left 3 towels, and most days no shower gel. Although the mini bar was restocked daily we were often left without coffee and milk. However, the positives far out way the very small negatives. Belvil is a fantastic hotel and we will definitely be returning again.

Well lets start with our first visit here in 2010 and back here again 3rd August 2013. We were met by staff with open arms again. Memo, one of the main entertainment tea, even remembered my daughters name, after 3 years,she thought he would have forgotten her!! What a lovely start to our holiday!! The room was a bungalow, but we like them, they are spacious and clean, staff always polite, when doing rooms. Brand new water park and kids club was amazing, I wish my child was younger!!! However, teenage club is keeping her very busy. We feel like we're all having a holiday!!! Water park for adults amazing, I love it and so does my 12 year old. We haven't ventured to the over 12's pool, as we like being amongst the activities. Busy entertainment program, all day, rifle shooting, archery, pool aerobics, Boules, water polo, pool games, beach volleyball, football, basketball, tennis, just about anything!!! The beach is lovely and water is warm. We have IBS, but never have a problem with food here. A good selection in buffet restaurant, and have not felt the need to use Al a Carte! Although I've heard they are nice.
Quail on menu last night with Crevettes, fresh tuna, Chinese beef and chicken, lots of salads, vegetables, and the kids even have their own restaurant if they wish!!! We took a trip to Belek market on a Saturday, got there early 8.45am, good job as it was 40 degrees, I was worried about burning but it was all under cover, good job we took large bottle of water from restaurant at breakfast! Taxi down cost 18 euros and euros are a good idea for purchases, a selection of designer trainers, any designer sunglasses you like, desinger clothes, bags etc got two pairs of converse for 15 euros and two pairs of ray bans for 15 euros. Bargain!!!
We love this hotel and have been all over the world and feel that this us the best for value for money for what you get.
There are a lot of French this year, but have found them very pleasant and polite. Never a problem getting a bed round pool, there are 3 main pools, and baby paddling pool, under Australian style kite cover. Beach beds can be under cover also. Only problem with beach, is at night, mosquitoes rife this year, bring spray!!!
We will be back and will be telling all our friends about it!!!
There are a few disabled people here this year and staff are excellent with them. It's a pleasure to see. This really is ideal for any age, we've even bumped into people who were here in 2010 with us.
