We had a very relaxing stay in hotel Side Star Elegance. We chose a room with full sea view which placed us at the building the closest to the street. We didn't have any noise though,as we were situated at the back of the building. We were on the third floor and had a magnificent view over the hotel, the sea and the port of Side. The room and the hotel in general were very clean. The garden was very well taken care of. Also the local wildlife as in cats and hedgehogs were taken care of with little cat hotels and food and water being placed here and there. (You can donate some money for them close to the reception) At arrival around 2am we still could get something to eat at the 24h time out bar,which was really nice. The food in the main restaurant was of a good quality,you had a lot to choose from and there was enough variation in our opinion. To our pleasant surprise there was a lot 'real' Turkish food, and not only the usual kebab and baklava (which were also very good). There was also a pool and beach bar, each with a different small menu,but equally nice food. If you still didn't think this enough you could also go for a fresh gözleme with filling of your choice. For the sweet tooths there is a possibility to eat pancakes or waffles everyday for 2 hours in the afternoon. There was also a freezer filled with ice cream besides every bar and throughout the domain you could find refrigerators filled with water, soda, cola,cola zero, Fanta, sprite and ice tea. At the bars,you didn't have to pay anything,even for the 'original' drinks like Bailey's or captain Morgan rum for example. There was also a good variety of cocktails ,but these weren't always that good. During our 15 day holiday we could go to all four a la carte restaurants (Turkish, Italian, Chinese and fish) in which you were served in stead of the usual buffet and you could choose between 3 different main courses. There were 3 outside swimming pools: a big one where all the animation took place and where the pool bar was located, two in between the reception and the time out bar and two small ones as a relax pool. There was also a relax bar but this was closed during our stay. We found the relax pool less relaxing as it was close to the main pool and we could hear the music from there. For us, we would call the two pools in between the buildings more 'relaxing' as it was quieter there, at least during our stay. Animation and staff were very lovely. They were all very friendly and they could communicate in German, English and Russian(not everyone was that fluent though) and ofcourse Turkish. The animation in the evenings at the amphitheatre was very varied and is a real treat. If you don't fancy a real show but you prefer some live music, you can eat your heart out at the düden bar where there is live music every night (mostly someone at keyboard and a singer). Only downside of this all is that they appear to know only a few songs and they all tend to sing them to after a few days you know them by heart. So maybe a little suggestion to not only vary the artists but also the songs 😉. The hotel was on one side situated at a big street where the dolmuş (the cheap local bus) to Side and Manavgat stopped right in front of the hotel. There were some smaller shops and a little further there were also some bar and restaurants. On the other side was the hotel situated right at the boulevard (only for pedestrians and cyclists) and the beach. It was a good 30 Min walk to Side, but I wouldn't recommend it in the middle of a hot summer day as there was not much shadow to be found.

We visited this amazing hotel in 4-11.9.2021. Everything in our trip was perfect. Room services, beach, pool, food was incredible. We feel very comfortable and happy. From the entrance, all employees were very caring and sensitive. One of little things was bad :Wi-Fi connection (capacity) in all areas of the hotel.

THIS IS NOT A FIVE-STAR HOTEL! We traveled there in August, and we did not book it through an agency, but by ourselves via hotels.com. The price was 2500 EURO!!!! The comments of the previous guests on booking, hotels.com, and Google were very good, so we picked it up. HOWEVER, our stay was fine, but FAR FROM 2500 Euro worth. Good things: 1. The room was very clean when we arrived, and the cleaning ladies were doing a very good job of cleaning it every day. However, sometimes when I had to work in the room, they would come in even though I turned on the 'don't disturb' sign. But overall, they were nice and they did a very good job with cleaning on daily basis. 2. Mini bar and safe are free of charge. 3. The food is good, however NO seafood AT ALL and no berries at all. Other than that, there is a variety of food all day, everything fresh and delicious. 4. The best part about our stay was the quality of the sea.... the sea was so warm and amazingly clean with no fish or any other animals in it. No big waves and the depth was perfect. Very shallow in the beginning and then after 5 meters or so it is a little bit deeper. Sandy beaches. Morning walks and sunsets were absolutely amazing. The only thing we didn't like is that from 11 am to 6 pm the beach is packed with people, which makes the water dirty. There were so many people despite COVID. And no social distancing at all! Not at the beach nor in the hotel. 5. The internet is not bad. Could be better (since it is a 5-star hotel), but I was able to use it for work. 6. The hotel organizes Turkish nights on Fridays when they bring dancing groups to present the Turkish national dances, and the same day they serve traditional Turkish food at the restaurant. That was neat. 7. The pools were so nice, especially in the morning when there was no people, but also during the day, there was only several people in it. Very nice, big, and clean pools, with beautiful palm trees around them. I wish I could have brought the pools back home with me :) Negative Things: 1. The working staff was quite rude. There was only one person who was in charge of the guest affairs and she was the only one who was polite. Others would barely answer any question, I mean how would they, they don't really speak any other language except Turkish and I guess German... but I don't speak German, I am sorry that I expect you to speak English when I come to a 5-star resort and pay 2500 Euro. Also, their Russian was good enough to say: Hi, how are you. Once I tried to ask at the reception where to get new towels, it took me 10 minutes to try in Russian, in English, and nothing. Only when a Russian receptionist came in to help I got the information, but not the smile. It was like: omg what do you want. The waiters in the restaurants don't speak any language other than Turkish. I even gave 2 euros every time I tried to speak to them, they took it and that's it. So even the tip doesn't help! 2. You can hear everything in the rooms next door. I had to sleep with earplugs. 3. The elevators are small and always busy. For this size of the hotel, you need at least double more elevators. We had to use stairs almost every time we are coming back from the beach. Every day by foot to the 5th floor. 2500 Euro! 4. No waiters at the beach. 5. Ok, the biggest problem was to find a place at the beach. People get up early, put the towels to occupy the space, and then they don't appear until like 3 pm! The same is at the beach and next to the pools. It was humiliating to go and fight for a chair in the 5-star hotel! 6. Other hotels around had amazing entertainment programs. We had a very poor program, like tombola, or karaoke (in Turkish mostly). 7. The drinks were poor. There was no natural orange juice, all cocktails were only alcoholic, no shakes. Overall, I would recommend going to this hotel only when it is not high peak season because the prices probably lower then. THIS IS NOT A FIVE-STAR HOTEL!

It’s like a heaven. You feel very comfortable and happy. From the entrance, all employees are very caring and sensitive. The food and service are very attentive. The rooms are comfortable and big enough to spend time with pleasure. There's not much to say about the sea anyway. It is very successful in terms of entertainment and activities. I would definitely recommend.

It was a very relaxing holiday and we had really nice time there. The staff was very nice and helpful. They did their best to help us. Special thanks to the waitresses who never made us wait whenever we asked something. The hotel was very clean and all facilities were regularly cleaned. The only thing is that the rooms can be cleaned more carefully. The beach was beautiful, there is nothing to bother you like rocks or anything. Thank you very much for the good service. I'd definitely come back again.
