This was our first trip abroad with our 3 small children and after reading the reviews before we left i was thinking what have we done!! Ok, to start, we had a night flight and arrived at 5am - reception came to greet us, spoke english, showed us round, got us water and then took us to our room on the 3rd street, all good so far. We had a family room, all beds made, plently of towels, air con in both rooms, small kitchen, yes it was basic but clean, and as we were only going to sleep in it, it did the job. Woke up and wow what a view from our room, so far we could not see what people previoulsy had to moan about. We were happy, kids could not wait to get into the pool, we checked the resort out, got our bearings and we were ready to go. Yes this resort is very steep, but you are up a mountain!! If you dont like to put a little effort in then dont go!! The pool was clean and not over crowded, it was slippy due to the marble floor everywhere, but as long as you stayed on the matting around the or wore shoes round the pool you were fine, the motto was DON'T RUN! unfortunately we did see a few children slip and fall! The restaurant served food virtually all day and there was no reason for anyone to go hungary, and we found the food to be good, yes it can be a bit samey, but you have paid to go AI so what do you expect? There was always plenty to go round and yes people were greedy, but hey ho! We did not once have a bad meal and we did not see any wasps, but then we always ate inside. Plates were always cleared promptly, and we never had trouble in finding a table for the five of us. There is a small pool bar which is only manned by one person during the day, but we never had to wait for a drink and always got served, including the kids regardless of nation.....The animation team were second to none, they work hard all day/night trying to keep everyone happy, never pushy in our experience and alot of fun always took place around the pool. The turkish massage/bath were brilliant and worth every penny and i would recommend. The on site shop was expensive compared to sarigerme village. Free shuttle bus on the hour never full, especially if you went after 10am and the beach was surperb, great for the kids. We made some great friends during our stay English and Polish. In fact we enjoyed our stay so much we are planning on returning next year. Finally, all i would say is take all the negative reviews with a pinch of salt, because for a reasonable priced holiday we got what we expected and were far from disappointed.
