A great time of year to stay. No queues on the water rides. Lovely pools not crowded. Food good can get busy but no shortages. Rooms clean and spacious. Enjoyed the beer and local brandy. The splash card system for extras is secure and works well. Look for late deals very reasonable. First choice have a good kids club. Definitely a family hotel and enough fun for all. A long transfer from Bodrum but maybe flying to Izmir next year.

We went as a party of 3 ladies, myself and my 2 daughters aged 20 and 11. We all had the most fantastic time so obviously all age groups as far as we were concerned were well catered for.
The hotel and room were superb and kept spotlessly clean, the only exception to this was the public toilet areas which were not always clean and smelled a bit by the end of the day.
The food was excellent - remember you are in Turkey!! I did not like all the food, but that was personal taste, and I always found plenty that I could eat and enjoy. The presentation of the food was amazing, at least until the guests descended upon it like locusts hacking away at the desserts which were presented whole and not cut into portions. There is a tremendous salad bar, hot plates where you can select prepared dishes and also an area where you can CHOOSE to queue for alternative dishes which are cooked to your own specifications while you wait .
All the staff were polite and helpful, most with a limited amount of English but still impressive compared to the one word of Turkish I managed to learn whilst I was in their country.
The hotel entertainment was entertaining!! Most nights they had dancers who danced beautifully to the original soundtracks from the show. We chose not to participate in the sports and activities they had throughout the day, but there did seem to be plenty on offer.
I have read other reviews about the all inclusiveness of the all inclusive hotel and have only this to add: Everything we needed was available. I was advised of what was available and at what times. Ice creams are optional as is drinking after 11 o'clock. If you want more you can get it on your splash card but remember you are paying for it by choice - The holiday itself cost way less than other all inclusives in Turkey so I think it is fair that you bear this in mind and not complain when you are given your bill!!
There is a games room with full size bowling alleys which costs 10 ytl per person per game (£4) about the same as home, darts and cards tables. Internet cafe saved us a fortune in phone bills.
My main complaint was the noise at night. Children allowed to run and shout down the corridors and their parents making an equal amount of noise waking us up on a regular basis in the first week. There was a group of lads out to cause chaos because they were not allowed to drink. They were aged 15 to 17 so had to wear childrens arm bands. It is illegal to drink under 18 in Turkey also!! Unfortunately all these problems were caused by the English guests and were the only guests I witnessed exhibiting obnoxious behaviour.
The hotel caters for 2000 guests, and has 500 staff. We did notice a difference in service during the second week of our holiday because it was full, and the bars had queues.
There are loads of swimming pools, some which play music and some which do not. They all have a bar area within a few yards, so choose the environment you want.
The aquapark was excellent with barely any queues at all. You pay for food and drink there, BUT the hotel complex is literally 2 minutes away, so a walk back is not a problem if you want to save your splash card.
There are also optional restaurants if you CHOOSE to experience a different theme for your dining, we chose not to use these as the main restaurants were so good anyway and they do cost extra.
The staff work very hard and management is very strict. They are not allowed to chat to the same person for more than 20 minutes, presumably to stop any unwanted advances- I never saw any of the boys hitting on any of the girls, just a few admiring glances which they lapped up anyway. Security is very strict and do not tolerate bad behaviour which is nice as this is clearly a family hotel.
We would definitely go again, and give the highest recommendation for the hotel and staff.
