We arrived during the early hours and were taken immediately to our room which was very clean and spacious. The mini bar was re-filled daily, as were the toiletries in the bathroom. We missed our introductory meeting with our Thomas Cook rep as it was at 10am and we were still sleeping, we never saw our rep at all during our week's stay but this wasn't a problem as the hotel receotion staff were very helpful. The food was excellent and varied in the main restaurant, however, we liked to eat outside by the pond area at breakfast and were joined by several pigeons, who even sat on my partner's plate and ate off it! What we didn't realise is that if you wanted to eat in other other themed restaiurants you had to pay 8 euros each booking fee, so unfortunately we gave this a miss which was a shame as the other restaurants looked and smelled fantastic. The entertainment was good, we went to the ampi-theatre in the evenings and then onto the Pool Bar and ended up at the open air disco. Watch out for the mozzies at the Pool Bar though. Getting a sun bed wasn't a problem at all either. There was plenty of entertainment in and around the main pool but if you wanted something quieter you could go to one of the other pools. There were a lot of 'screaming' children around and we have to agree with another holiday maker's review that there should have been an 'adults only' area, if only in the restaurant if nothing else. There were a lot of pushy, noisy Russians too, but the hotel and grounds are big enough to avoid them. The private beach was nice, although we didn't use it a lot. The sea tended to 'drop' suddenly and was quite deep and rough. Walking on the peer at night was a must though. The only fault we really found was on the day of our departure we had to leave our room at mid-day. We were advised if we wanted to keep the room on until 6pm it would cost us £70 and until 10pm £140. We were then told that on the day of our departure the hotel were expecting a lot of Turkish holiday makers and would be full so we wouldn't be able to book a room anyway. We only wanted the room to shower in and so we used the spa facilities which were more than adequate. However, as we weren't being collected to go to the airport until 3am we were left 'stranded' and tired. We chose to sit on a comfortable sofa by the Reception area and despite a lot of noisy Russians still drinking in the bar, we fell asleep, only to be rudely awoken by a not very polite man on reception saying "Wake up, wake up, no sleep here!" We actually thought we were very discrete, having left our cases in the room behind reception and only being the two of us. Maybe the hotel should provide a 'quiet room' for other guests such as ourselves who had early morning flights and no-where to doze? Apart from that, we enjoyed our stay at the Green Palace and the rest of the staff were helpful and friendly.
