“Heaven on hearth !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We stayed there for 10 days last April and I can say that all the people who were with me really enjoyed that hotel a lot. Big but not huge, the hotel is "chic"; marble everywhere and oriental decoration. Rooms are big, clean and very comfortable. Everything you need is provided in a good size bathroom with shower and bath, as soap, shampoo, body cream, shower caps, big towels that are changed everyday. All is very clean !
The restaurants are very good, well organized with instant cooking for some of the hot meal in the main restaurant, a barbecue outside facing the beautiful terrace where guests can take the meal, a Turkish restaurant near the beach, a 'Chinese-Japonese" restaurant in the lobby (+10 euro) and an "a la carte" international one without fees. Breakfast is just amazing !
There are many activities, as tennis, basket ball, all water sports, even a path of 600 meters for your early jogging.
The stone beach has been renew with white sand. This is the biggest change since the first time I was there. Now beach is great with many beach beds. No need to go there in early morning to put your towel on a bed as a "reservation"
Since this season, some of the staff members can speak perfect French, English and Flemish. This is something very unusual in Turkey, even in 5 stars hotels.
The spa is, as in many other 5 stars clean and provides good services.
One thing that is particular to this hotel is the huge and wonderful garden going to the sea. Beach beds are also scattered under the old trees and pines. In the garden, there is also 2 pools and a kiddy club.
Be aware that there are no rooms facing the sea. Some of them have a side sea view (with charge) but in reality, the sea is not easy to see because of the big trees of the garden, except if you are on the 4th and 5th level. The rooms facing the mountains have a nice view to.
I know many 5 stars hotels in this area, but I have to say that my first choice goes to Paloma Renaissance.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top level and in the right wing (when facing the hotel) The disco in the garde...

It was the second time I've been in this hotel, the atmosphere in the evenings or even during the day is very great! All the animation team is great! Thank to Serdar for his good humor, he is one of those i preferred! Thank you also to all other animators, they are all great! Faustine.

We have just come back from staying here and what an absolutely fantastic hotel, From the minute you walked through the door until the second you leave the service is faultless. The check-in was quick and smooth, our room was unbelievable. We were given a suite which consisted of a large living area, a massive bathroom with a bath, shower and a toilet. The room also had a separate toilet too! The bed was very comfy with a choice of pillows (even had a pillow menu). The mini bar was re-stocked daily with beer, still & sparkling water and soft drinks. The bathrobes and slippers were also provided as well as a large safe. We also had a balcony which had a side sea view.

There were plenty of food choices during the day, with options to also dine in one of their a la carte restaurants which was an extra 10 euros. We dined in the Santa Fe (Mexican) & Lotus (Chinese/Japanese) restaurants where we were given so much food! Then there is the sunset bar which provides lunch and brilliant drinks right on the beach. The alcoholic drinks were pretty decent and they give really large measures. The mojitos in the piano bar were fab!

The staff were absolutely fantastic! Staff on the front desk would go out of their way to help on every occasion. Amelie on Guest Relations was always on hand to ensure that we were looked after. Then there was the entertainment team especially Tolga and Sardar who were absolutely amazing, they would ensure that we were both ok, making time to catch up with us about our day and providing us with tips on things to do. They really did make our holiday special! In the evenings there was daily entertainment in the piano bar that was fantastic.

The hotel grounds is something else, there are amazing gardens which are brilliantly taken care of as well as two pools, slides, pool bar, hammocks and sun loungers everywhere. The views are also amazing, seas in front with a mountain backdrop, absolutely stunning. There was a lot of entertainment of which you didn't need to take part, but if you fancy doing an activity there is a lot of choice. From beach volleyball, to aqua aerobics, to Zumba etc plus lots of stuff for kids. There is also mini golf, table tennis, pool room, darts etc.

The beach is ok, there are some sandy areas but also a lot of pebbles, however you can still enjoy the sea comfortably.

If I had to be picky and say something negative it would be that as a vegetarian I would have liked a few more options, however I didn't struggle to find things to eat. The only other thing is that the hotel is not nearby any other bars/restaurants, therefore if you did want to go out of the resort you would need to go to Kemer or Antalya. Just be careful as the taxi's from the hotel are quite expensive, however you can get on a local bus which is really cheap and pretty quick which is what we did.

Overall, if you are thinking of going, just book it. We got this hotel at such a good rate and is probably one of the best all inclusive resorts I have been to.

It is difficult to think of anything new to say, about the Paloma Renaissance but as a family we use always use Trip Advisor as a guide so here goes. We have recently returned from a 2 week break at the Renaissance from the 28th May until 11 April. Firstly it should be noted that we travelled ‘out of season’ therefore a lot of the facilities were not available such as the al a carte out door restaurants and some of the entertainment venues i.e. the amphitheater. The latter meant that the evening entertainment took place in the piano bar and it was very loud. That being said a few guests, like ourselves, were able to take refuge in the Renaissance Lounge but the majority of guests seemed happy enough to congregate in the piano bar!

There is no getting around the fact that this hotel runs conferences. During our first week we experienced a Thomas Cook conference of around 190 delegates. They registered on the Tuesday afternoon and departed on the Friday for a two-day conference. Having read previous reviews about delegate behavior we were apprehensive. Apart from the minor inconvenience of the games/computer room, renaissance lounge and the Lotus Restaurant being annexed for the conference there seemed little impact on the paying guests whatsoever bar their very visual presence. The hotel erected a marquis in the grounds and also used the facilities of the Paloma Ballroom and the Ballroom (different venues) for their evening entertainment and meals. It was efficiently and elegantly run. We mention this only because of a comment by the hotel on trip advisor saying that they were taking note of comments made by guests on this issue and were putting things in place to rectify the complaints. If this conference was an example of this they are succeeding. This being said I am sure we wouldn’t be so relaxed about it if we were only on holiday for 7 nights. If any other smaller meetings were being held during our stay we were not aware of them.

To get back to the computer issue reception was only too happy to let my husband use a computer in their business room on two occasions when a problem arose.

The staff here does not make problems for their guests, they solve them.

The only other issue, and it comes up time and again, is the fact that the aircon is not switched on in the main hotel until May. The room was hot so we had to sleep with the balcony door open, with the mosquito door shut instead. Not a major problem being on an upper floor except for the building works. The noise started anytime between 7 - 8am and on one occasion didn’t finish until after 11pm. This we know is a temporary problem but the aircon isn’t. The hotel could take this on board.

Yes there were cats but for us they were not a problem.

It might appear that the above comments are of a negative nature so let us redress the balance.

The hotel is visually stunning inside. It needs a little upgrading as it is not a new build but we are sure that the Paloma group has this in hand. The staff are superb. They are attentive, efficient and pleasant at all times. The food, quality and choice, is extremely good. The same can be said of the wine in particular the organic red. The variety in the Noblesse restaurant is second to none. The sweets are so good they should carry a health warning.

We did eat at the al a carte Seasons and Lotus Far East restaurants both very enjoyable but preferred the variety in the Noblesse.

Housekeeping we could not fault in any way whatsoever.

Our Thomas Cook rep, Steph, has been at the hotel many years and “knows everything” in the nicest possible way. Most days you can find her in the hotel, she rarely misses a visit. Outside of her visits the customer services team are brilliant. Eren and Amilie were the two members we dealt with and they were so helpful and friendly. A big thank you.

We booked two trips with Thomas Cook. They are associated with Diane Travel whose standards are high. We have used them in the past and would always use this company from choice.

Talking about thanks, and it hard to pick out names of the staff here because everybody is so helpful, but we did enjoy our chats with Gokmen (hope that is right) of the entertainment team. Even though we ‘ran a mile’ when we saw him he didn’t hold this against us so next year we promise we will play a game of boules.

The gardens and extensive grounds are beautifully kept and a credit to the ground staff.

We love to visit Kaleci and getting there from this hotel was so easy, particularly with the help of Eren and his 4 foolproof sentences written in Turkish to guide you. The buses stop outside for Antalya and Kemer. If you are visiting Kaleci you will need to change buses at Migros. We opted to get a taxi for the remainder of the journey for 20Try (approx. £5.50). Costs to Migros were 11try return and to Kemer 9try return.

Beldibi is not pretty. There are a lot of new hotels/resorts being built and the infrastructure for these is being put in place as we speak so this might well change in a couple of years. Having said that, there is a good pharmacy opposite, also a couple of supermarkets if needed.

It is our hope to return to the Renaissance in 2015 though we will go a little later to be able to avail ourselves of the full range of facilities on offer.

There is so much to see and experience in the Antalya region and this hotel is a good base from which to do it.

It’s a great, multinational, hotel. We loved it and thought it was tremendous value.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet upper floor room which we got on the 4th floor overlooking the mountains.

First impressions of the hotel and the grand lobby entrance were impressive, check-in staff and porter were friendly and efficient. The room had a couple of minor defects that you maybe wouldn't expect in a 5 star hotel (stain on the carpet and the sofa). However, house keeping was excellent and the free mini bar was always stocked. The balcony is only small with only one chair, which we were advised is a precaution as the balcony door only unlocks from the inside!

The all inclusive is 24 hour and the staff are only too happy to serve. The selection of food in the buffet restaurant was suitable for anyone of any age. If you don't like spicy food there was always a plain selection of cooked meat and veg. From our past experience of all inclusive hotels, this has to be one of the best. Fresh fruit, salads, breads plus a wide range of prepared food.

The entertainment staff made us feel so welcome. They encouraged us to join in with the daytime activities but were never pushy. The evening entertainment was fun but stopped quite early (about 10.30pm), however, Shamrocks bar within the hotel was open until 2am if you wanted to carry the night on. A special mention to Serdar, Kira and Mohamed from the animation team who really made our holiday. Even though they were new to the hotel, they were very professional and friendly and spoke very good English. We felt like we'd made 3 new friends by the time we left the hotel after a weeks holiday.

The only downside is that outside of the hotel was limited for things to do, but we were there early in the season. If you want to see any sites the tour operator offered trips to the nearest towns about 40 mins away or there's a local bus that runs from outside the hotel. The hotel has it's own spa, it looked lovely but was very over priced compared to the same treatments in Kemer, 30 mins away.

All in all a fab holiday, a lovely hotel and well worth a visit!

Having just returned from this hotel, we cannot wait to return. Before we went we read some reviews and there were some bad ones, having spent a glorious week there, we find it hard to believe how anyone can give this hotel a bad review. The feeling of quality and luxury hits you as soon as you enter the Hotel and there is not a paper napkin or cheap platic chair in sight. The staff are so friendly and welcoming, especially the entertainment team, yes there is a slight language barrier but at the end of the day they are Turkish, how can they know every language, but they most certainly try to understand you. The food is of excellent quality wherever you eat, we particularly liked Seasons Restaurant. There is so much choice of where to eat for both lunch and dinner whether you want a 3 course meal or a light snack, there is something for everyone, ice cream and cakes in the afternoon, snacks at midnight through to 6.00am so don't worry if you have a late arrival. The all inclusive lasts until you depart and is unbelievably good value for money as you can eat and drink 24 hours a day if you so desired. The weather in April is ok but chilly at night and not comfortable enough to eat outside yet, however too hot in July and August so the ideal time to visit is May and June and September and October. This is definitely a hotel we will return to again.

Room Tip: Avoid a room over the air conditioning units.
