“Beautiful Stunning Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have just returned from a weeks holiday 30/3/13 - 6/3/13 2 adults 3 children 15,10,6

Every hotel on the way through Lara Beach is stunning but when you get to Royal Holiday Palace you cant help the smug grin on your face as you get off the coach ! The hotel looks amazing. From the moment we entered a member of staff greeted us straight away and even took us to our room. I had asked for a high view pool room but the first room we had was on level 2. looking out the front of the hotel. Although the room itself was lovely ( 2 massive bedrooms with ensuites, 1 had a Jacuzzi bath , and massive lounge ) it didn't have the view I was after. This was no problem what so ever and we were moved to the 9th floor within 10 minutes to a different layout room with a lovely view of the pool and sea. You do not get a kitchen area in the rooms but you do have a kettle, coffee, tea bags, sugar, cups and a daily stocked mini fridge. You also have a TV ( no dvd facility ) but the only downside is there's only 3 English channels and they are only news channels. A bit disappointing when you have young children as my 6 year old would try and watch cartoons in Turkish or german !! Luckily I had taken a laptop with me and taken dvds so they still could watch films on that. The air conditioning in the rooms wasn't working either . Apparently the hotel doesnt turn it on until the summer so all we got was hot air.
The first two days we were there the hotel was still in 'winter mode' ! but the 1st of April came and all of a sudden the sun came out and the water slides and fun fair opened along with the outdoor snack bars aswell. The outdoor swimmings pools were FREEZING although the kids didn't seem to mind and the heated ish indoor pool was still open so the kids had lots of choice. The daytime entertainment team were fantastic and regularly came round the sunbeds to tell you what activities were going on ... darts, volley ball, belly dancing etc .... They also had sunbed games aswell which were lots of fun, Connect 4 , Bowling , Roulette ( that was crazy !! ) .... They were very entertaining and seemed to love their job. You don't have to leave your sunbed for a drink. The girls on rollerskates take your order and bring it to you. The snack bars are great aswell. We ended up having kebab for lunch every day and it was freshly cooked. The funfair has a big wheel, a ship ride , dodgems and a fairground ride called discovery which my 10 year old son must have gone on at least a 100 times ! There are also trampolines and smaller rides for younger kids. The kids club was ok but my 2 youngest didn't want to attend as it was mainly foreign children. Even the kids disco in the evening was foreign music so we only went once.
The all inclusive buffet was lovely with lots of choice and 4 al la carte restaurants aswell. ( not all open at the same time and need to book in the morning of the day going ) ... Mexican , Italian, Turkish and Chinese. ( I only went to the Turkish one and it was lovely ) .
The evening entertainment was very poor but I think this was because it was too cold for it to be outdoors so it was in a small nightclub room on the lower floor of the hotel. The magic show tho was fantastic.
There is a small mini shop which sells English chocolate, pringles, toys etc and there are a few shops that sell clothes, sunglasses, jewellery. There is also a hairdressers and a spa which offers Turkish Massages. There is a mini cinema room and a separate bar which show football matches.
Overall the holiday was excellent and we would definitely return it the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor pool/sea view room .... You wont be disappointed

We have just returned from a weeks stay at The Royal Holiday Palace. We travelled as a family ageing from 9-82 years. On entering the hotel the only words we could use was simply WOW. The furnishings all of cream and gold marble are absolutely beautiful. Huge chandeliers all lit looked totally stunning. The grounds of this hotel including pool areas and gardens are always been worked on. It really is immaculate. The restaurants are beautifully designed all of which are away from the food area which is lovely. The main thing that made this hotel and holiday the best we have ever had was the staff. A huge thank you to Hamdi, Vedat, Bulent and Mikail you are all an assett to The Royal Holiday Palace. You really don,t have to lift a finger whilst staying at this hotel, staff are always on hand to help. They really do go that extra mile to ensure you have an amazing stay. Food is fantasic. Even the most fussiest of eaters wont go hungry. Your glass is never empty, infact you dont even need to re order as the restaurant staff just re fill for you, its fab. Although the aqua park wasnt due to open untill 15th April, Soycuk, the Operations Manager got things sorted so they could open for our Easter Holidays, our kids had a great time. Funfair also was opened. We had a fantastic time with beautiful weather approx 25 degs, great food, and amazing staff, we would definately return. Infact I am already looking for next year. We are going to Side in October but so much wish we were returning to this GEM of a hotel. Would highly reccommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Be carefull. We paid for a sea view room, this is what we got but it wasn't a full sea view it...

I would recommend this hotel to all.if you are reading this and you've already booked you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: I was told there was no sun on any balcony due to the way the hotel was built. I'm not sure if t...

Went 24/3/2013 for 1 week - family of 4
The hotel was a big Wow the minute we got there - it's very grand and spacious
We booked a family room which was 2 bedrooms both ensuite with a big lounge area plus 2 balconies. There is a mini bar - 2 TVs. The master bedroom had a big round spa bath in it! Very nice.
The room was only cleaned 3 times in the week plus towels were not changed........ There seems to be a big hang up with towels at this hotel..........
The staff serve drinks all day and work very hard. I love the idea of the girls on skates outside near pool area but I would like to see the men on skates too,,,,,,
The restaurant was great on the first 3 visits but then got really boring the food lacked choice and a bit of spice .........
The 2 men walking round promoting spa area put me off using it ..... It would have been good to see some women promoting it!
This hotel could do with a nail bar!
The pool area was great but the water too cold to enjoy.
The animation team were good, one member of staff saved a child from drowning some parents from other countries leave their children all day unsupervised so watch out that your child doesn't get a new play mate - who will be with you all day...........
None of the outdoor water slides were open and will not be till May........ The pier was not constructed they take all the wood off it for the winter - this will not be open till later in season. The beach area was ok but there was no bars open near it as they class it as winter season.

The area round the hotel (streets outside) were basically a dump but if you like fake rubbish goods then it may be your kind of place.

See my other reviews I'm well travelled so this is an honest account - Hotel may be 5* but it was nothing special............ The only plus about this hotel is the staff work very hard.

Just returned from a week at the RHP and it is a superb hotel. Really high standard from the minute you arrive until the minute you leave. The whole hotel, lobby, rooms, restaurants and outside areas all look great and are finished to a high standard. The place is immaculate and there is staff everywhere keeping the place clean.

The service is brilliant all the waiters can't do enough for you so it is only right you tip them for their excellent and quick service. The buffet is good and has plenty of variety. The a la carte restaurants are a class above the buffet and provide great food.

Hotel provides a shuttle bus that takes you into Antalya & back for 5 euros or 12.50 liras pp.

Overall it is a brilliant hotel and well worth a visit. I would not hesitate to return for my next holiday.

Just arrived back from a week in this Hotel, can honestly say it is the best we have stayed in, from check in to check out we cannot fault the hotel staff , the food is plentiful lots of show cooking. Rooms big clean and luxurious. Outdoor area clean and tidy swimming pools clean, would defiantly go back.

Stayed for one week between the 16th and 23rd March. On arriving at the hotel the only word to describe it was WOW!!!!!! Entering the hotel the inside was as good as the outside.The rooms were big, spotless and well furnished, bathrooms were spotlessly clean and the separate toilet was an added bonus. Food in the main restaurant was excellent and there was plenty to choose from. Restaurant and Bar Staff were superb, nothing was too much trouble. Hotel grounds were kept spotless. Weather was great for the time of year, rained one day but had no problems sitting in the hotel as bar area was large and comfortable. Overall, this is one of the best hotels and holiday we have ever had and are already planning our next visit. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: High Floor and pay a little extra for sea view. it's worth it.
