This is our first time in Turkey and we were dubious... how wrong we were ! We have just come back from here and cannot wait to book to go back next year. The hotel is lovely and is the best hotel in the area. We arrived at 4.30 in the morning and just me and the hubby - he is wheelchair bound some of the time and we were given a room on the first floor not near enough to the lift as we'd like but all the same a great huge room. Only critism of the check in was we had no help taking our bags to the room. We didn't make a fuss as we were very tired from the journey.
The food here is superb. Always hot and fresh and a good variety - the only thing we didn't like was the scrambled egg and the german themed night - other than that it was fantastic - we had choice every day. There is a burger snack bar by the pool and coffee, cake and biscuits late afternoon - tip - get there early at 16.30 as it is VERY popular ! The waiters are very efficient and helped us get a table if my husband was in his chair. We also had a night at the a la carte restaurant - there is meant to be four but as it is was near the end of the season they only had the italian. The menu at first appeared very limited and not that exciting but having had the food it was again fresh - hot and lovely ! Book in advance as this is again very popular.
The actual complex here is disabled friendly bar two inclines down the to beach. Do not bother with the bungalows if you have mobility issues as there are lots of steps - request a room in the main building BEFORE you go. The corridors are very wide. The only gripe I had with them is that they need updating and the carpets are creased so do cause a substantial tripping hazard - otherwise ok. We had we a family room and was HUGE - it had two bathrooms! The rooms are nicely decorated and cleaned everyday. The whole hotel is constantly cleaned - you cannot fault this.
We didn't take our children BUT are planning to next year. This a very family friendly hotel with lots to do for the kids. There are pools, slides, rock climbing wall, adventure playground, assault course and kids clubs every day - the rock climbing wasn't on due to season but all other stuff on. I did not see one child unhappy here. For the adults there are water sports, jetskis parasailing etc on the beach. The evening entertainment is good. They had things like the chinese acrobats and african tribal etc etc. Normally after this people went to the beach bar and they had a live band or a disco - tip this is repeatitive after a while as they sing the same songs and play the same music so do take a stroll out the hotel to explore the promenade.There is the opportunity to swim with dolphins and there were a lot of disabled children as they do 'therapy' for disabled. It is not cheap and I was not overly impressed with the size of the pen they seemed to be in. I never went in there but could not bring myself to see these animals in such a small space... you can only judge for yourself. It is only a 150m walk to them from the hotel down by the beach.
To conclude... this hotel is fab. All the gripes we had are listed.. the beds are too hard but apart from that we could not fault it. The staff are friendly, helpful and speak reasonable english. Try and get yourself in the spa or have a pedicure - all reasonably priced. We can't wait to go back !
