We had a great time at Sun Club Side. In late March the place was not crowded. The staff were friendly and hospitable. The rooms were nice and clean and faced the pool, which was just outside our door. The beach is only a 5-minute walk, and the ancient town of Side can be reached in 10-15 minutes by foot. It is a nice walk along the beach.
We wanted a nice and quiet hotel without loud music, drunken tourists and embarrassing "entertainment" every night. We were not disappointed.
Breakfast: Cereals, fruit, vegetables, bread and the cook prepares omelet or fried eggs for you. Pay an extra € and you get a glass of fresh orange juice. Lunch and supper: There is a large variety of food, 2-3 warm meat dishes (mostly chicken, turkey and fish), rice, vegetables and chips. It is true that this is not the "English cuisine", but then again: Turkey has one of the greatest cuisines in the world, so who can possibly be longing for baked beans and white toast? Also: Do not go to a Muslim country to eat bacon. There are also many vegetable dishes, and the dessert table leaves absolutely nothing to wish for. The wine (red and white) is okay, though not top notch. All in all the food was excellent value for money.
It serves quality draught beer (Danish brand Tuborg, and it is served in glasses, not plastic cups). Besides you can have gin and tonic, rum and coke, vodka and juice - the basics, that is. Coffe/cappucino/hot chocolate is also available all day. At 4 o clock cakes and cookies are served. The waiters in both restaurant and bar are very helpful and efficient.
We were a family of four (two teenagers), we had a great stay at Sun Club Side and would gladly return.
Incidentally: We saw no British tourists at all. Maybe they had been scared away by the angry English reviews - or maybe they were enjoying the "English cuisine" at the bar just around the corner. Still: If you do need your bacon and burgers and then want to drink till you drop, this is not the place for you. We loved it though!
