Arrived at midnight and dropped our cases off in our lovely rooms.
We headed 2 minutes into town and the noise was deafening. Lots of very lively bars. Thought we had landed in a mini Marmaris and was not impressed .
Then the next day we really appreciated how beautiful both the hotel and scenery were. We originally booked Half Board and after paying for 3 cokes and a Beer for £12 decided it would be more cost effective to upgrade to All Inclusive. This cost another £100 per person per week. This was well worth it as the food was lovely and the kids could help themselves to all the soft drinks and Ice cream they could handle making our holiday much more relaxing.
We decided to do this as the price of restaurants outside were not as cheap as we were told they would be.
Rooms : The rooms were very spacious and very very clean. We were in a standard room and once we upgraded to All inclusive our mini bar was emptied and just water left ..which i thought was a little harsh. But towels, sheets cleaned on a daily basis without fail.
Air Con : Its not rocket Science to keep the air con on all day all you had to do was take the key off the fob and leave the fob stuck in the wall to keep air con on all day.
Food : plenty of choice for breakfast , lunch and dinner.
Seabass and Seabream available each day along with Chicken, Veal and Turkey. Some Brits were complaining about no bacon but don't forget this is a Muslim country.
Hotel. Hotel is lovely and the oriental bar is a great place to chill out in the evening if the entertainment is in the amphitheartre.
Hotel is spotless and the pools very clean. Pools are very cold first thing and although they have a few they are all quite deep for younger children. ( there is a very small babies pool)
The obligatory up at 8.00am to put your towels out on the sunbeds I am afraid.
Entertainment : lots of pool games and organised events during the day by the hard working animation team..Temel, Onur and Sedat to name a few really do their best to keep you entertained.
Evening entertainment is "ok" they do try hard to please all nationalities.
Definitely visit a Turkish bath and go to the mud bath/Turtle beach trip to Dalyan. And men try a Turkish shave well worth it for £2.50.
All in all a very relaxing holiday for us as we chilled out in the lovely hotel for most of the time. The Turkish people are the friendliest people I have meet while traveling abroad.
The only downside for us is that there was nowhere to eat and chill out in the evening as 99.9% of restaurants turned into "fun pubs" around 22.00. Hence why we chilled out mostly in the hotel in the evening.
If you want it even livelier go into Mamaris.
The hotel maid it for us . If we had been in a dump I think my review may be a little different
