Great hotel, maybe not of a 5 star according to Western European standards but overall experience was really good. Location is its main asset, by the marina, and very close to bars, restaurants and shops. Fantastic hotel beach and outdoor pool. Spacious rooms with large balconies, very pleasant lobby, nice breakfast area. Breakfast itself was good with plenty of differentt kinds of food however sometimes a bit tasteless. Staff was generally helpful and nice. They had no issues with bringing your own drinks to the hotel beach, although try the bar as well - it is not overpriced at all. Food in particular seemed even cheap as for Kemer. Also, there's an absolutely amazing roof top restaurant... a must if you fancy a romantic dinner... beautiful views! If you want to relax, visit Thalasso spa at the hotel, which has a sea water hydro pool, saunas etc.
There's plenty to do in Kemer, great watersports, boat trips, jeep and quad safaris (beaware of the cheper options as you'll get what you pay for... quads falling apart into pieces and breaking down every 5 mins... ), nightclubs (try the one in Moonlight Park - Rai - it's good and as a Turkiz guest you get in for free. We didn't realise it the first time and they wanted to charge us quite a lot plus the boys wore trainers and the doormen would only let them in if they paid them 100 turkish lira!!
Kemer is a first class resort, although you will not experiece there traditional Turkey (if this is what you're after, better go to Lycian Coast and visit places like Fethyie). It has all you need to make your holiday relaxing while doing something different everyday. The only thing that was a bit annoying was that we were talked to in Russian whenever we went... only when we replied back in English we didn't understand they would switch to English... the language was never a problem. The majority of Kemer's visitors are Russian so that's why but they're not popular amongst the Turks at all. They are regarded as very arrogant and just not nice in general... but they leave a lot of money over there so there you go... Turks keep smiling and help them spend their money in their shops, bars and restaurants...and to make the Russians even happier they happily accept US dollars (also euro and turkish lira is accepted and these options are normally cheaper than the dollar but the Russians don't seem to mind or realise they are being overcharged).
Another thing worth mentioning is that once a week there's a market in Kemer where you can grab yourself a really good deal from shoes, clothes thru to watches and bags!!
