Reviewed June 13, 2014

We went to this hotel with the extended family. Food was great (and I mean really great - not as in most big hotels but really taken care of), personnel very friendly, clean-clean-clean, every day a new animation, ...

It was really a great hotel, nevertheless, we saw the worst side of Neckermann/Thomas Cook... :-(

Hotel is ridiculously clean, staff are for the most part friendly, although it seems like if you're English they can't really be bothered. If you're looking for a quiet break to a nice hotel this is for you, you're aren't going to be bothered by obnoxiously loud expats here. Taz (or Tarin as i've heard she's called) is a delight, one of the only people on the animation team that speaks english and helps to keep us entertained. Constantly checking up on us, she was lovely. Did have a bit of a mare with the managers trying to charge us for a lock their cleaners broke, but aside from that it was a stressfree holiday. Would visit again.

I went here when it was the newest hotel in Antalya. It is so modern and clean, the entertainment was good even when we went at the end if November. The buffet was incredible and the staff were so friendly and polite. The rooms were amazing. Especially the shower! Jacuzzi bath as well. This hotel made our stay in Turkey as the area isn't particularly great. Gorgeous cocktails as well.

we have just got back from a fantastic holiday at this fantastic hotel.The bedrooms are spotless and beds so comfy.I had a problem getting in the bath first night because of the height of it,we requested a step and none slip mat for bath when we got back to room they were already in place.The maid Nursen was lovely and kept putting flowers in room .Aeden and Taz were great they were so helpful.Waiters Baris and Demet always so friendly and efficient.Wherever you went it was so clean even the gardens were weed free .It was our wedding anniversary and husbands birthday while there .Customer relation lady booked us in fish restaurant for both celebrations and they also made the bedroom special with wine and fruit and a beautiful cake for birthday. Would definitely recommend .[all the staff were nice]

We stayed at this hotel from march 7th 2014-21st what a brlll time we had!!! We were a party of 4 sisters We were celebrating my both my sisters birthdays. On arrival the reception were soooo friendly and efficient. A birthday cake was put in both rooms and the table in the dining room was decorated with flower petals and we were made to feel so special. The waiters throughout our stay were so kind to us and I can honestly say that we were looked after so well!!
The rooms were spotless and the maid service excellent. Our maid who cleaned our rooms 1316 and 1317 was super efficient and replenished our toiletries daily. The towels were changed daily.
I can't believe the negative comments about the food as we always ate well. The manager at this hotel is very hands-on and checks everything is running well and that the guests are happy. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: ask for sea view.

Stayed here as a family of four during the easter holidays for two weeks and had a fantastic first 10 days. The hotel is quite small & predominantly German but is clean & comfy with lovely beds and an amazing shower. The food is definitely not aimed at the Brits, my husband had indigestion after nearly every meal and he normally has "guts of steel" but everything is covered in oils & spices although you can get cooked to order burgers, hotdogs & nuggets etc at the poolbar at lunchtimes. The rooms are cleaned daily and the outside areas are kept spotlessly clean ( never seen toilets cleaned so regularly ). Good selection of drinks & cocktails and the minibar in the room is restocked daily with beer, water & soft drinks. During the second week, I suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon whilst taking part in a completion with the entertainment team which resulted in a visit to hospital and a plastercast. I obviously needed a wheelchair to get around and the Hotel kindly charged 10 euros a day for the pleasure even though I needed to go down 3 floors to the restaurant & pool areas. The Hotel Manager came to see me before I left for the hospital and said that he would see me for a chat the following day but despite sitting in my wheelchair in the lobby all day, he came in, looked over and then walked in the opposite direction to avoid us and never spoke to us again. Despite there being a Restaurant Manager on duty every day, only once in 10 visits was a chair moved to allow me to sit at a table. There was no offer of room service even though we were 3 floors away from the restaurant. The only assistance that we had from Staff were Taz & Aeden on the entertainment team and they could not have been more helpful. They kept the boys busy and Taz collected the boys each lunchtime for a beach walk and returned them to us and Aeden kept them occupied with football tournaments etc. They both helped me around, and were constantly checking if there was anything they could do, Aeden also translated my medication for me as this was in Turkish. They were absolutely lovely and the best reps that we have ever had on our travels and a real credit to the hotel. There are other members on the entertainment team but they only speak to the Brits to sell Bingo tickets weekly. A big thanks to Victoria Abbott, our Thomas Cook rep, who organized my hospital visit, let us know the paperwork required to enable me to fly and arranged for wheelchair assistance at the airport. All in all, this was a great holiday but it would have been nice for the Hotel Management to at least acknowledge that I had been hurt and to offer some assistance, it is only when things go wrong that you really know how good something is, and they were definitely a let down.
