Reviewed July 7, 2013

Just returned from a two week break with our three kids 9,7,4.

Although we had an initial problem with our room we were subsequently moved to a lovely family suite.

The resort is fantastic.Plenty of activities for both adults, water polo, yoga, volley ball, etc, and also for the kids. The entertainment team were great.

The water park has a variety of slides for all ages. Queues were not a problem.

The food that was served was plentiful and nice. Yes you have to queue sometimes but it is never too long. The service at lunch and dinner was good too.

The cleanliness of the complex was second to none. All the staff work very hard. As soon as something is dropped or spilt someone will be there cleaning it.

Overall we will now find it very difficult to go any where else.

Only a few small gripes. One is having to pay for a safe in the room. Should that not be included in the overall inclusive price. Secondly the in house toy shop. We bought a toy which broke after our 4 year old had it for 10 minutes. The shop owner tried to tell us it was not his responsibility. After arguing for 15minutes he finally gave us a replacement. I would stay away. Lastly in house photographers will come and take photos of your kids without permission. I complained when a man was asking my 7 year old daughter to pose as she was coming out of the pool. Guest relations did not think there was anything wrong with that as I was not being asked to buy anything.

Having said all that I am sure we will go back.

Room Tip: Stay away from the stables

I have just returned from 2 weeks at the Aquafantasy with my two daughters 14 and 9. I can't fault the staff who were extremely friendly and helpful, the entertainment team who are so welcoming to everyone and try to involve everyone, the food - amazing choices for vegetarians, and healthy eating which can sometimes be a bit limited, and the standard of cleaning - staff are continually going around the pool and communal areas sweeping and mopping.
Weather was fantastic, although maybe a little hot if you have very young children at this time of year.
The water Park was excellent too with a wide choice of slides. the lazy river was very lazy though - you have to push yourslef along or paddle with your arms or you dont move! We loved the wave machine. You are unable to take food or drink into the water park (they search your bags when you go in) but just drink plenty before you go and pop back to the hotel for lunch.
If you are a lover of fake products then the market in Kusadasi is the place to go, although be prepared to be hassled the whole time. I managed to get a belly dancing costume for my daughter for 15 TL which is about £6 so was quite pleased with that, but had to haggle down from 35. The buses run about every 20 minutes and its 4TL each way per person
The only downside in the hotel itself was some of the other English guests - some of them were extremely rude, loud, and very bad language. This is a family hotel, so I didnt want my kids to be surrounded by constant swearing. i accept that you can get that anywhere at any hotel and its not the hotels fault at all, but it was cringe worthy.
Murat in the restaurant was particularly lovely to us during our stay and we even had flowers on our table at lunch on the last day.
Every day, you have a newsletter delivered which gives you the full programme of events for the following day.
The hotel is right on its own private beach where you can have free pedaloes and canoes, so we took advantage of these on most days. Sunbeds on the beach are also free.
The location isnt great if you like walking - I attempted a walk in both directions from the hotel for about 40 minutes but there was nothing at all in either direction. I think however that the buses seem frequent enough that if you want to go to a specific place, then you can just hop on there.
All in all, great for families though.

Genuinely couldn't fault the place...people, food, weather and facilities all great! Our only issue was 2 kids both who suffer from travel sickness and a 2-3 hr transfer!! Otherwise, I would go back in an instant!

Room Tip: Get one overlooking the pool......there is a river running down the back of the hotel...attracts moz...

Just returned from an excellent weeks all inclusive stay at the Aquapark hotel. Can only say good things really. It is an excellent resort with loads of restaurants and bars, countless swimming pools, a top quality aquapark, private beach and plenty of shops for souvenirs. Food was really nice, plenty of choice as well.

Cleanliness was top quality. Staff were polite and unfailingly helpful with constant requests for drinks (language sometimes a barrier and they did like to remove plates and cups a bit too quickly!). If you can, do learn a little turkish as they appreciate it (I got away with 1,2 beers please, hello and thank you!)

All in all I would recomend this resort for all ages as there is something for everyone.
