“A great holiday, good hotel, decent food, clean, what more could you want!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

We arrived in the very early hours of the morning, not expecting much after reading the reviews and we were very pleasantly suprised! The room had 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, very modern and clean with 2 balconies facing the main strip, quite noisy but I enjoyed watching the world go by! The room was cleaned daily and beds changed every other day with clean towels left daily. Food was ok, plenty of choice, freshly cooked omlettes and pancakes for breakfast as well as meats, cheeses, bread, toast. Something different everyday for dinner, mainly turkish food but always chips or some sort of potatoes and pasta most days too. Deserts were a little odd but we enjoyed trying them out. We were suprised to find that drinks weren't included with dinner, everywhere we have stayed before there has been water and juice, you had to buy water, 4Tl for a large bottle is not bad but we wern't expecting to pay. We ate out a few times too and some great restaurants near by, 5 of us ate well for around 50TL. The hotel staff were great and they love children, my 4 year old fell in love with one of the waiters, Martin and he was fab with her. The resort is very busy and very British, we enjoyed venturing out and did some great trips, jeep safari is fab. Andy will greet you from the Ago agency over the road each time you leave the hotel, he did us a great deal and we got a free trip as we booked a few. A great holiday, be prepared for hassle from the shops, bars etc but if you're nice to them they're ok. The market is good fun! Lots of genuine fakes! Only downsides were the cost of air conditioning, safe box and the beaches are not really beaches, just shingle. We are hoping to return next year to explore more turkey, and who knows we may be back to the epic.

I enjoyed my stay at the epic and i was impressed with the family entertainment. At the pool during the daytime there was always something going on for all ages like water polo in the pool, dancing competions or bingo. There was never any pressure to join in you could relax and watch others. The staff are friendly and make you feel very welcome. The pool slide was great fun and there were plenty of loungers. The food was just ok and not as nice as most of the resturants nearby. I would stay here again but not half board.

For a budget holiday its ok , not the best but certainly not the worst . Entertainment has been done in Turkey for the last 12 years that I know ie Michael Jackson, Karaoke , Breakdancing , Karaoke the worst possible Turkish Folkdance group you will ever see and more Karaoke . Food was ok but when staying for two weeks I soon got fed up with it although the soup was nice. Worst of all was the thieving from rooms ie cigarettes , money and minibar drinks. Was at reception many times complaining as cigarettes were taken from my room on our second day there along with two cans of juice from the minibar which they tried to charge for . Was met with reply of " were your cigs locked in the safety deposit box " and said they would look into it but never heard from them. This happened to other people also while i was there..
My minibar was emptied as I requested that 2 days later just to avoid further confusion but only to be called to reception in my second week to pay for two drinks from an empty minibar and after explaining I didnt have the minibar they changed there story to the pool bar which was an absolute joke as i paid my drinks when bought all the time .
Clean sheets and towels were quite hard to come by as ours were changed once while there so was a case of help your self if there were any on the cleaners trolley which was left at end of corridors for the full fortnight.
Such a shame as the hotel itsef is nice and the pool area is ok but only open from 8am so people that like to read there paper etc in the early morning sun have to do so in their room .
On checkout friends we were on holiday with were asked for 143TL for a weeks safety deposit box which equates to around £52 ...... dream on Epic

When we got to the hotel, 3 girls in a room with one wardrobe and no hangers was not accepted well, however this was soon forgotten as it was lovely and clean and cleaners came in every day to empty bins and would give you clean towels on request even if they weren't due for being changed. The aircon leaked twice but the staff were very good about it and got someone in to fix it straight away, same happened with the lock breaking on the door. We stayed for 10 days and there was something different every night for the evening meal and fresh omlette and pancakes in the morning. Some of the bar staff were a bit pervy but the majority were lovely. we loved Karaoke with Katie and Selim, does anyone know their surnames so we can find them on facebook??? there was free champagne from the owner on our friends 21st and we had free drinks with our last meal in the front restaurant. They also organise a cake for birthdays but charge 25 lira when we saw cakes in the supermarket for 3 lira so i would buy your own. would stay again

we have just returned from the epic hotel it was great room clean food ok although breakfasts were better than evening meals. but this the first year they have done half board and it can only get better. the slides in the pool were great and on most of the day. like most hotels impossiblet get a sun bed . the air con wasnt good and cost 30 pound a week. on the down side the waiter staff around the pool are not friendly at all in fact couldnt be bothered to serve you drinks at all and the bar at the front was just the same. they played most of the time on the boxing machine out front rather than serve you drinks. the reception staff on the other hand were very helpful and lovely as was the restaraunt staff.my advice would be get rid of elvis and the hotel would be spot on . if you book any trips use andy or adam over the road

Room Tip: all rooms are good but a little noisy on front
