“Very trendy”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

A nice place to stay, be sure you have a swim suit as you can swim in the Med or their pool. Do not be shoched if you are in the main building abs there is a concrete ceiling. This hotel is designed in a basic way with pastels in the rooms. Staff is good, rooms are very large and housekeeping is very good. If you stayin a transitional period beaware that the AC is on a cycle where it is not available. We did have a humid night as we only had fan available for the rooms in May 2013.

Room Tip: Have fun with the bathroom door as it closes on the toilet or the bathroom, it is the same door. Be...

I'm writing this after one night, so it's mainly about the room. It is one of the most thoughtfully planned hotel rooms I've ever been in. My roommate and I love the double door on the bathroom, which gives privacy to the toilet. (What is UP with all these peekaboo bathrooms in hotels these days?) There are plenty of hooks to hang things to dry, and even a chaise lounge with plastic cover (turquoise) to flat dry sweaters, all very welcome since Turkey doesn't have laundromat s, and we've bee on the road for a while. Big deep bathtub. Soft pink walls and lighting that make us look FABULOUS. Lots of surface space in both room and bathroom to lay out all the chotzki stuff we've picked up along the way. This room was obviously designed by a woman, probably one with kids. Beautiful and funky fun, but so very practical.

Dining room was so welcoming last night that we didn't want to leave. It was vast, sort of like an air terminal, but space between tables offered privacy and at a table of six, we had no problem hearing each other. Besides, the kids were playing on the swings hung from the ceiling, until the grown-ups appropriated them.

This place just mAkes me feel HAPPY!

Chosen for the colourful rooms which we got ,all areas the resturant,swimming pool and the sea swimming area were of good condition.The food was of a good variable standard and the reception always helpful.But we felt was let down badly on two accounts.first the price of drinks seemed extremely high,a bottle of the cheapest white wine was about £30 and quality was not very high.Second dispite leaving tips for the cleaners our tea/coffee/sugar was there only on a few occasions,and two nights before leaving we got 8 large towels and two bathrobes left on the side .But would not take a lot make better,as this is our fourth trip to turkey this is the first time we have had complaint.

This was probably one of the nicest places we have ever stayed.

The rooms are massive and the service is great.

The pool is a great size and great for sunbathing.

The hotel grounds are beautiful in the summer.

It has a small Private beach that is accessed via a lift and truly is a hidden gem.

A pricey hotel but worth every penny.

If you hire a car, the concierge will park it for you when you pull up at the hotel and get it for you whenever you need it.

Antalya is a city and not very tourist friendly, but if your wanting a unique escape this is a great one.

Room Tip: One overlooking the sea would be perfect!

We chose this hotel for several reasons, one being the decor, my partner not so fussed about this but the decor caught my attention, I loved it from the pictures, when we got there we (I) was not disappointed at all. I loved it.
I emailed the hotel prior to our holiday asking if they could put a little surprise in the room for my partner ( I wasn't fussy, I thought maybe a heart shaped towel or something) instead we got a free upgrade to a sea view room AND little bottle of local wine and some sweets which was amazing.

Views were absolutely stunning, room was great, pillows however were horrible, such bad pillows for a 4/5 star hotel.
Back to the positives, food was nice and breakfast every day was great, looked forward to it every morning. Sitting outside to eat was so nice. Towels and robes hurt my skin, so rough. Not great for a 4/5 star!!

The private beach area and access to the sea was perfect, we LOVED it. The tunnel was brilliant!! Such a nice area, snorkelling with great, we saw an octopus which was a highlight and we also done the scuba diving. Great experience however my instructor had a cameras so I got a lot of pictures however my boyfriends instructor did not so he only got a few pics whence first got in. Still a good experience though.
Staff were sometimes lazy and slow but then others they didn't stop. Always polite though.
Ok some negatives:
The price of the drinks in the hotel are shockingly expensive, we actually panicked when we worked out how much a drink was. At the time we went we were looking to pay £9 for a single shot of jack Daniels and then an additional £3 for a can of coke. GULP!! Local beer was at an average price but if you don't like beer your stuffed as drinks were limited. I quickly decided that wouldn't be my choice drink but the choices were very limited and with no real bar to go and sit at, it wasn't a place to sit and relax and enjoy a few drinks. No night life. Very business like.
It was cheaper to drink cocktails than a simple short and mixer. I understand it's not a local drink but when you walk 100 yards down the road to find a bottle of JD for £14 it's quite annoying.

There is a metal detector on the door with signs saying you can't take your own food and drink into the hotel...some excuse about hygiene but it's obviously because the food and drink is so overpriced, this is where they make their money.
Food is nice but sooooo expensive.
I would describe this hotel more of a business hotel you would stay at for a couple of nights not a two week holiday.
Entertainment was horrendous and once food service had shut down and entertainment finished at approx 1030pm there was nothing to do.
The beach bar seemed to be open when it felt like it but we gave up going down there after trying it several times and being the only one down there with "DJ Performance" blasting out some bad dance music. It was quite embarrassing and uncomfortable.

Every night we had to leave the hotel to find some sort of drinking spot and place to just chill.

The cleaning staff found it quite odd that we didn't want our room cleaning every day, she was a little rude about it but we were capable of tidying our room and actually if we used the towels for a day or two it helped to make them softer. They really were bad. We ended up having to sneak past the maids to avoid the daily question and puzzled looks.

Overall nice holiday but wouldn't go back as exceptionally overpriced drinks and food and nothing to do there.
However we enjoyed ourselves just not the room bill.

Cheap decoration. Poor service quality. I missed wedding ceromony because they didn't bring my shirt on agreed time from ironing. Hotel is not for families with kids, seaside is dangerous. Hotel staff is unwillingly doing their job. This hotel can be the weakest link of the Marmara chain.
