“Perfect Holiday”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

october 2012 We flew into Bodrum Turky arriving in the early hours and had a 2.5 hr transfer in an air conditioned coach it was very comfortable with a stop for the loo halfway.
Registration was quick and simple our cases were delivered to our room with no problems.
The rooms had a double and two single beds The rooms were quite small but we had a balcony which gave us sitting space. There was a tv which had some English programes and a few kids channels.There is a hair dryer in the ensuite bathroom.
The air con in the room worked perfectly keeping the rooms as cool as you want(if its not doing that get a new room dont just accept)
The complex is huge (1200 guests) There are several pools with various diferant activities around them.
The enterainment was cheesy but good fun.
Every member of the hotels staff were very hardworking efficient and happy to help with any request.
The food was plentyful and good quality.enough choice for the most picky of tastes.
The Aquafantacy water park was quite small but full of quite good slides,a wave pool and a lazy river(it was a bit slow).
All in all this was the best all inclusive holiday for the money that we have ever had and will be happy to repeat.
Go to the website and see how good this place is

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny Get the biggest room you can

i went to aqua fantasy in june 12w with my other half (35) and my youngest son (8), from the minute we got there we new we were gonna love it, we arrived at about 10.00 and they had left the beuffet open so we could eat and have a drink, room was really clean a nd very spacius. entertainment at the pool was excellent and we normally wouldnt get involved in the ctivities but did and it qwas great fun, water park was brilliant and we went in there everyday, the only down side is you have 2 pay 4 your drinks in there, however its not far from the hotel bar so we would go back in there 2 eat and drink and then back into the water park, breakfast lunch and dinner were fab and the chinese we had mid week was superb, all the staff work so hard 2 please, the other thing we were well impressed with was the beach bar was included in the all inclusive so if u felt like a change and a bit of change of scenery u could go there, we loved this place and have allready booked 4 next year....cant wait x

Were do I start. Myself and my husband went here with our 2 sons aged 7 and 11. This is by far the best holiday we have had. The hotel is huge and we were never stuck for something to do. There was a range of nationalities and the hotel catered for everyone of them. The rooms are spacious and clean, the food was lovely. My 7 year old is a fussy eater but there was always something he liked. The pools within the hotel were excellent, alway clean and the aqua park was just fantastic. The kids would never get sick of it. The beach was also a great place to relax but we also made use of the free canoes and pedalos, the jet skis and other things were chargable but prices were reasonable. No matter what time of the day you could move from one pool to another, then go to the aqua park then the beach then come back to the pool and we always got minimum 3 sun beds together. I must also add the hotel provides beach towels which you can change every other day. We took our own as we didnt know this but never used them. There was activities from 9am for kids and adults. Its only a 5-10 minute bus ride from Kusadasi and costs 4tl each. There are shops within the hotel as well and its worthwhile haggling with them as well. I really cant praise the hotel and staff enough. I would certainly recommend and are thinking of going back next year

Room Tip: we had room 2374 and it was lovely and quiet and it was out of the sun all day so was always nice an...

We booked this hotel hoping it would give us a varity of stuff to do on resort. We were not dissapointed.
When we arrived we were asked to leave suitcases outside reception and check in. Suitcases were taken to rooms later by staff. We had 647 people check in the same day as we did so u can imagine how busy receptions is. We were dealt with swiftly given our wrist bands and splash cards/room key.
We had reserved a deluxe room. Very nice. Jacuzzi bath was amazing. Yese there was stains on the carpets but nothing to worry about. Beds are hard but have had worse. This may not be found by all. But i have joint pains so noticed it. Ok yes mini bar is a little expensive for most things. All i used was the milk for tea and coffee which was free. Milk cost 3 lira used 2cartons all week. Well worth it.
Pools - you have 4 big pools and 2 small kids pools. Big pools were 1.4m deep which meant tiptoes for us. But they had walk in sections on all. POOLS ARE FREEZING. I could not stay in them. Probably lovely when temp is soring.
Aqua park - would say excellent for kids. This is not to say we did not enjoy it. We just could not keep walking up and down the steps to the top of the ride. Had to do a couple and sit down. Majority of rides you need a ring or boat. Once u get one dont let go of it. Possibly could do with more. Found this was great as a free thing to do on site. Food and drinks not free but theres a bar right outside. If u need a locker you get a 10 lira charge to your splash card but u get it refunded once u hand back the locker key.
Beach - this was lovely. The sand glittered. Im petrified of jetties and sea water. I managered to walk every day down the pier. The water doesnt get deep enough to worry about. Only to your chest at end of pier and u can see the bottom so clearly. We had to go feed the little mullet every morning with bread.
Food and drinks - we were so amazed at the choice of food for breakfast lunch and dinner untill mid week. 3 days of a chicken dish which was just named different each night and shephards pie. Got a bit boring. Food got cold super quick especially breakfast. But trust me we were never hungry and still eat loads. Plates and mugs are chipped but always clean. Watching the staff we know why. They are always rushing about. Drinks are very weak suppose if u drunk all day and night u would notice it. One good thing we never heard any drunk idiots at all hours.
Entertainment cant comment on as we were so exhausted after dinner each night. One great thing was tv in room showed english movies all day and night non stop.
Extras - there are game rooms which are extra charges. 6lira per game of pool. But i have never been to a hotel where games are free.
Overall - this hotel was great for all ages and abilities. It ticked all the right boxes for us and would definitly go back again. I have no complaints what so ever. If u aint a snob and moan about such small things u will have a fabulous holiday. Yes its no 5*luxury u can find else where round the world but it was definitly a 4* that thompson gave it.

Just Back from aqua fantasy, this was our second stay at this resort and I can honestly say that in the 21years that we have been visiting turkey every October this resort is THE BEST RESORT YOU WILL EVER HAVE THE PLEASURE TO STAY !! we have been all inclusive for the past 12 years and I can not fault this place for all these negative points people are posting on here IGNORE THEM !! I get the " trotts " every year it's part of the holiday ! Take med's with you it is a well known fact that you will most probably get the " trotts " in turkey no matter where you stay as for the entertainment team these people work there butts off to try and make the holiday as much fun as possible and they all do a fantastic job if you don't want to get involved or its to noisy for you don't go to Fontana pool head off to the quiet pool or down the beach now for the staff I am a firm believer that if you treat the staff with a bit of respect you will get the same treatment back I witnessed a lot of people talking to the staff like dirt !! There is no need for it ,the staff all work extremely hard and long hours I saw a few staff working at the bars untill after 11pm and they were back at work happy when I went to the bar in the morning !! I would like to see some of us working those kind of hours for the very little wage they make. now for the language problem some holiday makers have .... You are not in the uk you are in turkey learn some simple words in turkish its not hard a simple hello , how are you , please and thank you will go a long way as for the water park that is the best part where else can you get free unlimited entry to a park like that ? The only downside is you have to pay extra for drinks but do what we did ... Back to hotel drink eat then go back !! It's not rocket science. last but not least the food for the amount of choice you get if you say" there is nothing I like" you must live on water and grass !! My son (who because of health problems )is a fussy eater always managed to come to the table with something to eat the choice is absolutely fantastic yes the dining area gets very busy but figure out when it is quieter if it bothers you and go then personally I think the hustle bustle is down to some people being a bit ignorant as far as I am concerned. I however do agree with one negative point our stay went in far to quickly !! We met a few very good friends and had an absolutely fantastic time and yes I have already booked for next October and cannot wait
So if you are looking for a lively resort with a fantastic entertainment team pleasant well manner'd helpful staff good food and a free entry water park this resort is for you book it you will not be disappointed

Have never written a review for Trip Advisor before but had such a good time here, thought that I would recommend to others.

We are a family of 4 with two boys aged 14 and 12 and would highly recommend this resort to anyone with children of any age. There is plenty for kids to do as they have kids clubs for all ages (including a teenagers club) with a full daily activities programme. With free entrance into the water park, there is always something for the kids to do. We felt highly confident to let the kids almost do their own thing and actually saw very little of them all holiday which gave them their own freedom and was lovely for us too!!

The whole hotel resort and grounds were always immactuately kept and there were always an abundance of staff cleaning/tidying all areas.

The food was excellent with an amazing choice every day and even our kids (who are fussy eaters) always found something that they loved - we have all put on a lot of weight though and think that a diet is now in order!!

We would deffinately return to this resort again and would highly recommend to anyone with children of any age.
