My husband and i were certain that we should write a review of this hotel as previous good reviews played a big part in us chosing this hotel for our honeymoon. We stayed for 2 weeks in april and the weather was just lovely. It was really nice and warm, plenty warm enough for us pasty scots!
The whole resort is something special, like a little oasis. It was bigger than we thought it would be. The hotel itself is huge. We were in a junior suit, right at the front of the hotel with an outlook onto the pool area and the sea beyond. So pretty. Our room was lovely, spacious, modern and clean. The whole hotel had a lovely modern feel. The lobby area with the glass elevator is pretty cool and i have to admit we did ride it once just for fun!
The hotel amenities are fabulous. We were there for 2 weeks so it would have been easy to get bored but that didnt happen. We spent most of our days relaxing by the pool, on the lovely private beach or sipping a mojito at one of the bars. what more could you want? The entertainment was aimed at families with kids but they seemed to be enjoying it and the animation team really were everywhere. Seemed really friendly. All of the staff were lovely and always attentive. we did go to see a movie at the hotels cinema but be warned most of the films were shown in german with english subtitles. Because we were in a junior suit we had acess to a private lounge with internet access and self service bar. Again, what more could you want?
The food on the whole was great. We were not there in peak season so not all of the restaurants were open but there was still plenty of choice. We loved the main buffet restaurant. It had lots of chice and theme nights so it varied all the time. it was great for lunch with fabulous choice of salads. We also had the choice of 4 a la carte restaurants. our favourite was the mediterranian. Really nice atmophere and the food was great. The turkish restaurant was also really good. your meal is kicked off with lots of little tapas dishes,,.. a really nice touch. i wasnt so keen on the sea food restaurant but my hubby enjoyed it. It is outdoors so was a little breezy. In 2 weeks at the hotel we found there was plenty variety and lots of options if we fancied something different.
Dont even get me started on the drinks! The all inclusive really was ALL inclusive. Absolutely everything, from the wine with dinner to mojitos by the pool were included. As was our mini bar which was restocked daily with water, fizzy drinks, beer, spirits and wine! The lobby bar is a great place to sit back and do a bit of peopl watching. Our favourite bar was the one with the swingy seast! The bar tender there made the best mojitos!
We did one day trip, the real Turkey trip. It was lovely to see a bit of the surrounding area. we were taken to a mosque and shown a real turkish village and noamd's house. It was a great wee trip. We also visited a real Turkish bath wich was really relaxing. we had aslo booked a trip to a market and waterfall but that one was cancelled.
All in all we had a wonderful time here. I could not have asked for a better honeymoon and would highly reccommend to anyone seeking a little rest and luxury. We will defiantely aim to go back in the future,
