We have visited Turkey several times before but have always stayed with family. This time we decided to stay at a hotel and our family in Turkey joined us. This way it was more of a holiday and there were many more activities for us and the children.
This was an excellent choice of hotel for us as the hotel itself, all the facilities and restaurants were all to a very good standard. It was also great being an all inclusive as, apart from money for the games machines and gift shops, we weren't constantly being asked for money for this and that by the children.
The freshly cooked buffet style food was very good and we were all amazed to see a large shark in the restaurant on fish night! The steaks were lovely. Food and drink were plentiful throughout the day.
We had a Hammam and massages. We were of course recommended to have additional massages for our 'problems!' We took this up as we enjoy massages and they're a lot cheaper than at home.
Their were a few minor issues such as the air conditioning being turned off (our bed was on the mezzanine so it was rather hot and stuffy), we arrived late so the restaurant was closed but the snack bar not open yet so the only thing available to eat was not so great sandwiches and the security guard was extremely rude when our family came to collect some items from us the day before they were due to check in and ordered them off the premises at the front of the hotel. Also, some of the children's toys 'disappeared' from around the pool.
We paid about £50 for a late checkout at 7pm as we weren't leaving the hotel until 11pm.
The hotel was full but apart from the buffet at prime time at dinner it never felt busy. We also ate at the Asian and Italian A La Cartes which were good but they were 6 course meals!
The flumes and fair were good fun and free. The magic show was excellent. The ten pin bowling was also fun but had to be paid for.
Overall the holiday was great and the quality and service as expected for a large 5 star family hotel in Turkey. The barman was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and attentive :-)
