We stayed at beach club doganay for around 8 days in May 2013 as a family of 4 and we had an excellent time. On first arrival, after a 2.5 transfer from Antalya airport, we were warmly welcomed by the reception staff and before we knew it our all inclusive bands were strapped around our wrists, the timetable quickly explained and then our bags were quickly transported to our room. We were meant to be booked into a 'sea view' room, but unfortunately we were far from the view of the sea pretty much opposite another building, which became the view. Not ideal, but we didn't complain as we were not planning on spending much time in the room. The room we thought was quite small, but practical. At around 7pm we made our way to the terrace restaurant and I can safely say that we were extremely pleased and surprised by the large selection of food on offer. However, as our holiday went on we found the food to be pretty repetitive but on the same token it was all freshly prepared and to a high standard.
The restaurant waiters / chefs etc we thought were not very engaging with guests, but again I don't blame them as the majority of guests were Russians who were generally pretty rude and quite wasteful with their food. We thought breakfast was probably the least animated and exciting of all the meals and the selection wasn't great unfortunately. After dinner you can grab a tea, coffee or further drinks from the tea house or lobby bar until the evening show starts. The animation team - a group of boys & girls (made up of Turks & Georgians) put on a show for everyone at around 9.30pm for an hour, which we found to be ok but not amazing...our kids enjoyed it though and a lot of it is slap stick comedy, but nothing too innovative. Saying that, the animation team were a great bunch of lovely young men and women who worked very hard for the guests. The were by the pools from 10am and will continue right through to 11pm... Incredible as they're always enthusiastic and always carry a smile on their faces - they were great. However, as others have commented they do like to keep guests engaged and they will work hard to get you to participate in activities. This is fine, but at times they won't take no for an answer. It's fine though and you can politely ask them to allow you to relax and rest. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely be returning to this great hotel!!!
