We stayed at the Hillside SU for a week at the beginning of August. Having never made a trip advisor review before, our experience at the Hillside SU has inspired me to allow others know of such a fantastic holiday.
Having read previous reviews we travelled to the Hillside hoping it was as good as people had reported - from the second we stepped into the hotel, it was evident that this is a 5* hotel.
Staff on reception were attentive and helpful and spoke excellent English.
The rooms were spacious, clean and well equipped. Plasma flat screen TV with a variety of English channels is a good touch. Each room has a free safe and complimentary wine and fortune cookies on arrival.
We didn’t use anything from the Maxi Bar and all products can be removed from your room if you want. It is quite expensive but very well stocked. Although the beds are low down they are very comfortable and you can choose your pillow from the pillow menu!!
The pool is fantastic and the sun beds are THE most comfortable, relaxing sun beds I have ever sunbathed on! Each sun bed has a remote call button that alerts the pool staff that you require food/drink etc...Everyday afternoon treats were delivered to your sun beds; this could range from ice cream to bagels and Turkish tea...also if your sunglasses steam up in the heat then a member of staff is on hand to clean them for you.
Food around the pool is second to non and very reasonable in price. We had lunch everyday by the pool and soon realised that portions were that big you could even share a dish to save a bit of money.
Make sure you sign up for boules, darts, table tennis etc - the entertainment around the pool was great fun and excellent prizes to be won including Spa treatments and free meals at the Kat.5 restaurant. Plus it gives you chance to meet other people and share stories and experiences.
Alternatively, if you did not want to spend the day by the pool, you could wander down to the Hillside SU's private beach which you access via the beach bar.
There a numerous sun beds available for you to relax and bathe in the clean warm waters.
Between the hours of 5.30-6.30 it is happy hour which translates to all beverages half price! There is nothing better than sipping a moijio in the white beach bar whilst listening to the resident DJ Pasha play numerous chill out tunes whilst watching the sun go down...AMAZING!
Entertainment in the evening was excellent. Live classical music in the lounge bar (free WI-FI) and DJ Pasha in the beach bar. We never had chance to visit the nightclub as this seemed to be shut during our weeks stay.
Evenings spent at the beach bar were a perfect way to unwind, have a drink and a dance. It wasn’t full of young, hip, trendy couples but a diverse mixture of young, old, families and nationalities. All having a great time! There isn’t much happening around the hotel, just a few local bars and locals playing music. The Beach Bar is the place to be!
We spent one afternoon in Antalya town, looking around the various stalls and bazaars, be prepared to not being allowed to just 'look' - you will be hassled to buy...we shared a taxi with friends that we met at the hotel...15 TL to get to the centre of the town.
We also visited a restaurant on recommendation from another family who stayed at the hotel. This was run by a Leeds chef and was called Vanilla. It was an excellent meal and very reasonably priced.
We stayed half board and the food was out of this world! You could choose anything from the buffet which had EVERYTHING you could imagine to eat! You could even get the chefs to cook you up an omelette if you wanted in the morning!
In summary, we had an amazing week at the Hillside SU and have not stopped raving about it since we got home. We will definitely be coming back here in the future. You could not fault a single aspect of the holiday and we hope that others have as good as experience as we did.
