“Fun stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2011

We actually stayed in July so are rather late writing this review, but never mind. Our family (mum, dad and three children between 16 and 21) thought this was overall the best all-inclusive hotel we have stayed at. The grounds were particularly nice, with lots of shaded paths and grassy lawns which made it easier to keep cool in the heat of the day. We tended to sit around the most active of the three main pools, although also used the tennis courts, swam in sea, used gym, volleyball etc. Other plus points for us were great food (you could either eat inside with some air conditioning, or outside in shade - cuisine had nice Turkish influences, but quite geared to western European tastes, I'd say); generally very friendly and helpful staff (particularly waiters and waitresses, the cleaning staff and the animation team - occasionally the bar staff seemed slightly grumpy); and well-appointed rooms. When we stayed there was a good mix of nationalities (and ages, actually) at the hotel -- Turks perhaps in the slight majority, but plenty of Germans, Russians, Scandinavians, some British etc. as well, and we found it was very easy to get to meet people during pool games, or at the evening entertainment. The entertainment itself perhaps lacked very many visiting "professional" entertainers which we've sometimes had at other hotels, but the animation team did their best, and it worked fine when the audience were prepared to join in!

Minor negative points: outside the hotel was quite a busy main road, and it required a journey into the town for shopping or sight-seeing. Somewhat lacking in night-life for older children, although the animation team ran a (supervised) trip into a night club in Alanya once or twice a week. Sand on beach a bit gritty, and sea at times chilly due to a river which ran into it. Rather long connection from the airport. Most staff had better German than English, although we generally found we got by. WiFi speed veeerrrry slow. Air-con in rooms struggled on the warmest nights. For us, none of these negatives were major problems, but I guess they might be for some people. Overall we'd recommend it highly.

We went with our 4 year old daughter and it was perfect. We were upgraded to the suite as all the comfort rooms had been fully booked so bonus!! Lovely, spacious and clean with 2 balconies and wall to wall glass patio overlooking the Relax Pool. The beds were hard, yes, but they weren't too bad! The beach was a bit stony closer to the water but otherwise fine. Sunbeds were plentiful at both the beach and pool areas and even though the hotel was full it never seemed packed!

The buffet was fine with variety each night and we never had a problem with our fussy 4 year old! The staff were lovely and courteous.

The animation team is fab - don't know why so many people say they are not. They try their best and the kids animation was brilliant in my opinion! My daughter loved it!

The other guests were very friendly and we met a lovely family from Germany who we hope to keep in touch with.

The trip from Alanya airport took nearly 3 hours and not 90 minutes as our travel agent had specified. There's not much to do outside the resort but that didn't matter too much to us as we wanted to totally relax and we did!

Book it - you will love it. After all it's what you make it!

My first trip to Turkey and to an all Inclusive Resort. Hotel itself I couldn't fault, large clean rooms, all facing the sea, albeit at an angle, friendly staff, excellent quality food and huge range. 3 pools, clean beach and plenty of room although we were out of season. 95% German residents and mostly over 50. Not really suitable for 3 girls in our 40s! Some rooms are less quiet as they back on to a main road.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in this hotel 20.9.11 - 5.10.11. Can't fault the cleanliness here the gardens are beautiful food is very good also. But as with other reviews this hotel is catered 95% for the German nationality. Every morning the waiters would greet you in German despite every morning we said 'Good Morning' in English we felt a bit neglected.However I must say that when we arrived at the airport to come home and heard the english families shouting at their children I think it was a relief in some ways to only have a few British people at the hotel.
The rooms were immaculate and the beds although were hard were changed nearly everyday and the sheets and towels were lovely and white and clean. You are given a card at the beginning of your holiday which you hand in and are given a blue towel that you can use around the pool and on the beach you can hand these in at the end of the day and are given fresh ones so there is little need to take towels with you.
The food was very nice and there was always plenty of choice. In the afternoon the 'Seale Bar' serves afternoon tea and cakes which is very nice to have when you come off the beach etc.
The entertainment is dire. The Germans must have a very different sense of humour than the British, It is soooo bad. If you're not German don't expect to win any competitions either as any judging is very biased.
Although I have had a few moans the overall holiday was brilliant they just need to get their act together at this hotel and not be so prejudiced.
I don't think I would return to Alanya again but if I did I would perhaps find another hotel to stay in.

we are 4 adults aged 55-57 and we stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks from the 16th-30th sept. it is a long journey from antalya airport we were told it takes about 2 hours it took us 3 hours and 20 minutes, we didnt arrive until 3-20 am the hotel itself is very nice,the rooms are very clean and the grounds are lovely, there are four pools and each are checked every day. the food is excellent and there is plenty to choose from, the staff are pleasant enough although there is a big language barrier, while we were there we only encountered about 8-10 english people and they all seemed to feel the same as us (unwelcome) the rest were mostly german a few dutch and a crowd of younger ones arrived from finland on our last day. everything is catered around the germans, all the staff speak german and less than a handfull can speak any english at all, there are a few little shops on site and on our first night we had a look around them, my husband and his brother both liked a shirt in the clothes shop when they asked the man the price he said you english we said yes to which he said i am german and snubbed us.the animation team are ok and one of them speaks quite good english and the entertainment isnt to bad although we didn't watch it every night it lasts about an hour but after that most people seem to stay in the bar area and play board games and cards. we've never been on a holiday quite like this one before and im sorry to say we wouldnt return.
