Otium Eco Club Side
Ranked #8 of 229 Hotels in Side
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We have just returned from our first stay at the Otium Eco Club Side and can honestly say we all had an amazing time. The hotel and grounds were absolutely spotless and the staff couldn't have worked any harder.
Hotel rooms were spacious (even with a camp bed up) and were cleaned every single day.
The food was gorgeous, and there was always plenty of choice. All the staff were super friendly (a special thank you to Dris for being so great with our kids).
Can definitely recommend the Spa (the Turkish Bath is a must!)
Animation team did a great job of looking after us all and the shows that we saw were of a very high standard.
Would definitely stay at this hotel again, and would have no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends.

Having holidayed 5 times previously all inclusive in turkey this hotel had a lot to prove, simply put it FAR SURPASSED the previous level set. AMAZING choice of gorgeous food, not one bad meal infact not even one average meal hardest thing was to either stop eating or choose, drinks a plenty and in very big servings... Our little 2.5 year old though technically too young for kids club was welcomed in each and every day the entertainment staff taking great care of him for aslong as or little as was required. The level of cleanliness is beyond what is even reasonable this place is kept tip top all the time. EVERYONE goes out of their way to make your holiday just what it should be and that's an enjoyable experience with no worries, even the chamber maids took time to get to know and speak with us and especially Josh our son. I could not possible write enough praise for this hotel....EVERY SINGLE PERSON concerned with running this hotel far exceeded what we even dare to expect....it's been so good were booking again this year for another week in September...WELL DONE ALL INVOLVED IN HOTEL OTIUM ECO CLUB!!!!

Room Tip: Only complaint (which was only slight) that we heard was from the rooms near to the mini zoo and the...

I have only been on a couple of all inclusive holidays as I usually prefer to be off the beaten track with the locals but this hotel has changed my mind. Rooms were spacious and cleaned every day, staff were super friendly and couldn't do enough, enough food to feed an army and huge choice! Gym and pool area cleaned stringently. Many activities, we particularly enjoyed volleyball. Evening entertainment which I again normally would avoid but was actually really fun and they got everyone involved. We were sad to leave!!!

Easter break for 2 week. Thank you otium staff for such a lovely experience. My 5 yr old boy have the best time. We will return again. If your looking to be with loads of other brits, get drunk and sit smoking round the pool. This is not the resort for you. If your looking for a international family resort to relax in lovely surrounding and are conscious traveller, who considers the wider impact of tourism then this is the place for you. Turkey is a wonderful country, well done otium raising awareness of this issue.
Thank you to all the kids club staff and entertainments team for making our stay special.
Also to the relentless hard work of bar and kitchen staff. Great food and service! Smiley service very helpfully and kind if you have any problems.
Lastly to the staff in the spa wellness centre. Please tip staff they work so hard.
Side is not round the corner and the nightlife is centred around the hotel only.

Just returned from Otium Eco Club hotel. Easter 2013 .
The staff were very welcoming and switched languages smoothly and efficiently. A very international hotel not many English but many Turkish and Germans. The entertainment team tried to include all nationalities. Myself and children from 9, 17 and 20 all enjoyed our stay in the family villa with garden view. The food was lovely and we could practically eat and drink all day long. The drinks were quite limited for an all inclusive and the only diet drink was water but I cant say it was a problem . Free coffee and tea all day with cakes galore.
The weather was warm all week but at this time of year be prepared for showers and clouds. And cardigans are a must for the evening.
The outdoor pools were very cold. Most people used the indoor one where many unattended children seemed to lurk. We tried the spa and this was lovely definitely worth the extra Euros. The only disappointment was that the bikes were all too big for my 9 year old to ride and we would have enjoyed exploring on them even if they looked a bit rickety.
Take Euros and Lira. I think when bartering in the markets and shops you may get a better deal with Lira but most people seem to take Euro even on the buses which we used to travel in to Side and Manavgat. We ate out once in Side but it was very expensive down near the sea and i wouldn't necessarily recommend it not when the food at the Otium is so good and plentiful. The market at manavgat was large and full of bargains and Side at sunset in the ruins a must. Saw 2 wedding couples having their photo shoots.
All in all a lovely relaxing break with plenty of shopping and exercise if you take your trainers. this hotel is more on the quiet side of Side not too lively if that is what you are looking for.

Room Tip: We stayed in garden facing villa near the relaxation pool. Was a lovely spot very quiet near to all...

We are here at the optimum now and it is fab. We arrived early on Friday morning (today is Sunday). Our room is lovely (we booked a superior garden room) its huge with very comfy bed (lots of lush pillows) a big bathroom and a lounge area with two sofas coffee table etc leading out onto a big balcony. as it is early in the season the hotel is not full and the entertainment doesnt seem to have really started up yet on a night although there is lots going on during the day if you like that sort of thing. The place is spotless, in beautiful gardens,lots of comfy sunbeds by the three pools. Indoor pool is lovely too, large gym and lovely spa complex.The food is amazing (and I am fussy ) staff are keen to help and very polite and smiley. My partner and I travel a lot and this is one of the nicest places we have stayed. Would def recommend

Room Tip: The deluxe lake view rooms have hammocks on the balconies I'm booking those next time :-)
