Stayed at the Palm wings for a week in October. The weather all week was great, not a cloud in the sky. Colder in the evening.
When we arrived it was through the night, pretty quick check in though. We have one child but decided to up grade to a bungalow, closer to the pool and no balcony(safer) just a small terrace. We had to pay extra but felt it was worth it. The room was ok, beds hard. In need of a refurb I felt and the shower room was shabby. Shower leaked so towels down every time :( Clean towels every day and beds made. Water in the fridge.
The pool area and bars were great, clean and always sunbeds. The flumes were open 10-12 then 2-4pm. Kids loved that( and the adults) haha.. music played around the pool and entertainment too if you wanted to get involved. Clean towel change if you wish everyday, you receive towel cards per person when you arrive. Save you taking your own.. bonus.
The main restaurant was quite big, wasn't a fan of this, quite noisy. However always a large selection of starters and mains from the buffet islands. Deserts were also good. There was a grill outside too doing Doner meat, fish etc.. Very friendly staff, helpful hard working and great with the kids. Clean. They did theme nights which was good to see. They have a la carte restaurants too which are Chinese, Turkish, Italian, and seafood. You get to use one free per week. I wouldn't bother again if I went back, When you book it a day or two in advance through reception you have to choose your food there and then.. annoying who knows a day before what they would like to eat? not me! The service was slow and food was rubbish. We ate out twice in Altinkum which is about a 20 min walk away, nice few restaurants if you like a change from buffet. There is also a snack bar and crepes, ice cream etc through out the day.. you wont starve.
Entertainment every night at the amp theatre located near the beach area, staff worked hard and put on good shows each night, funny. Started at 9.30pm Also a beach disco which I would imagine would be great earlier in season but too cold in October. Most people headed inside at 11pm and there was music on in there, DJ. Bar open till whenever.. we left at 3am one morning and was still open :)
The beach area was beautiful and clean, lovely relaxing bathing platforms, plenty beds and a jetty where you could try out various water sports, banana boat, sofa bed, all to be paid separately but brilliant fun. Loved that!
The Spa was brilliant, had hot stone massage. Was amazing.
Great shops to have a rake around, 20 min walk away, plenty replica pieces to be had. :)
On our last day we had a check out of 12 noon even though or coach pick up wasn't until 10pm. We opted for a late check out which ment we could have the room till 6pm. we paid £32. The staff were adamant they would not let us keep on the room free of charge even though it was end of season and they were closing the following day, and we had arrived through the night in the first place.. Ridiculous to expect people with children to leave rooms at 12noon, pack and feel you are loosing your last day. Then only have a courtesy room for a quick wash, this really infuriates me with Turkey holidays, the flight times are rubbish!
Overall the holiday was great, and the sun was out all week, and my daughter had a ball, what matters the most!!
