I traveled with my wife. Upon arrival we were assigned a room on the top floor which was visibly substandard for a 5* hotel: it was small and the window was near the low ceiling though with a seaview (what we had paid for). On the first morning we were awakened by a low thunderous rumbling coming from the roof just above our room. Some very heavy duty machinery was switched on and I cannot imagine anyone surviving it for the length of the regular stay there. The administration agreed to move us to a normal room which of course did not provide the planned seaview. My second point of dissatisfaction was the so called 'adults-only pool'. You might expect no children there running around the pool but alas, it was not to be, far from it, though I appealed to the staff to do something (they helplessly shrugged). I have nothing against children, just on the contrary, but not when they were brought by large companies of indifferent Rumanian/Moldovian young parents who were in the habit for forming something close to a gypsy camp around the pool. Puking and crying by babies around the pool is something you are advised to be prepared for. The last thing I was unpleasantly surprised by was the sandless beach but you can stay by the pools.
Everything else was just perfect: the minibar stocked daily with soft drinks and Turkish beer (not that bad); the variety of the food offered was staggering - I made a 12-minute video walking around the stands with the food never repeating a frame! Staff is very friendly - they were walking around the pools with carts offering drinks and fruits, or (can you believe that) polishing your sunglasses; in the evenings you could smoke a sheesha (free), watch a 1-hour entertainment, dance in the beach party or just sit contented outside and drink sparkling wine (cheap but enjoyable variety of the champagne). During the day you can go on a trip to Alanya, buy there a bottle of pomegranate wine or a box of Turkish delight, visit the cave (forgot its name), go to the fortress above the bay or take a sea trip and dive in the incredibly blue (and salty!) sea. Or do all of the above with no exception!
