I went with my girlfriend to this resort for a weeks trip. I had never been to turkey before and wasn't sure exactly what to expect. It was a nice enough place with a variety of activities but a week is as long as i would want to stay.
The rooms are pretty basic, air con, fridge, tv etc. slim balcony. There is a gym, sauna, table tennis table, pool tables, darts and 4 pools outside and 1 inside and its right next to the beach. The food is of a decent standard but because it is in a buffet style its sometimes difficult to get hot food. If you develop a system of waiting and watching to see what and when something is being made then this can be avoided. By the end of the week you might be a pro.
There is the option of paying an additional 15$ (why dollars in turkey i know not) per person to try out the a la carte restaurants. We did this twice. Italain was a nice five course meal. The 2nd night we reserved for Mexican and it was pretty much a total shambles.
Ice creams served between 3 and 5 were a particular highlight. (all inclusive, ideal)
One main thing that i have noticed from other reviews is that no one has mentioned that this resort and also this area has been given the nickname 'little russia' we only spoke to/met another 4 people that could speak our native tongue, although some staff have a basic knowledge, this for some could become quite frustrating.
On the whole i really enjoyed my stay, I wouldnt go back as it wasnt worthy of a repeat visit but i would recommend it to others as its worth doing once. If you do go, look out for the way that guests photograph their partners and friends at the resort, nothing short of hilarious and if you like a bit of dancing then there is one song in particular that they play several times a day that gets most onto their feet.
Hope this helps and well done if you didnt lose interest, skim read or skip parts of this review as it has turned out a bit more extensive than i has planned.
