We loved this all-inclusive resort experience: all the food and drinks (yes, alcoholic beverages included) you wanted, gigantic swimming pool, poolside activities/music, walk onto beach, etc., however, the terrible internet was a real letdown as we needed to stay in touch with home and work. I even offered to pay for the higher bandwidth internet (versus the free one) but was told it was no different. We managed to identify a couple of semi-'sweet spots' but even that connectivity never lasted more than a minute or two. They **really** need to fix this big problem. Otherwise, everything was great. Plus you can also wander next door to the Kremlin Palace and eat and drink there too if you wish. The beach is fairly narrow, strewn with pebbles. I was surprised that debris had not been cleaned up. Maybe since it wasn't yet 'beach season' they were letting it go. Also, if you at times prefer a more tranquil setting for your meal you can pay a $5 cover charge and have a reserved table with individual service as opposed to grazing on the extremely bountiful buffet. BTW in most cases in Turkey you can pay for purchases with Euros or Dollars as well as with Turkish Lira.
