“FANTASTIC HOLIDAY”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

My husband and I returned from a 10 day stay at the Sentido Perissia on 17/9/13 and would like to say it was our 3rd stay at this hotel and still a FANTASTIC holiday destination. Many thanks to the staff especially Cetin, Adel, Deniz and others too numerous to mention. We would also like to thank the Thomas Cook Reps in the hotel Jordan, Natalie,Catie and also Fiona who were there to make sure this visit was as special as the others. This hotel is one of the cleanest,friendliest hotels we have visited. After reading other reviews about getting up at 6.30 to get a sunbed we had no problems whatsoever, even at 10 o clock there were still plenty available around the pool area.

I have not found the need to write a review before, but I always read the trip advisor reviews before I travel and feel disappointed that this hotel didn't live up to my expectations. Myself and family stayed at this hotel during August 2013.
Lovely location and setting, but a tired hotel and tatty in places.
I didn’t experience the pool area as it was too packed for me and my family, but visited the beach and this was delightful.
The evening entertainment was OK and the concierge helpful.
The waiter service was terrible in the buffet restaurant, more often than not found myself hunting around for the likes of cutlery and someone to clean the table before my family could sit down. On numerous occasions I was unlucky enough to come across dirty crockery mixed in with the clean items. I've never been to a 5* star hotel before where they have dirty trolleys being wheeled around the restaurant which are bought up to your table to collect dirty plates etc.
Prior to the stomach bug outbreak the cleaning in the public toilets was of a poor standard however, this did improve during my stay.
My whole family suffered from the stomach bug which I feel could have been avoided if the hygiene standards had been better from the start. This resulted in us not being able to sample much of the cuisine.
Been other hotels in Turkey with exceptional service and standards for me and my family this hotel is overpriced and over rated. Would I go back…No, would I recommend it No.

We ( a family of 4 including children age 5 and 3) stayed 2 weeks end of June beginning of July. We had paid £1000 extra for a 1 bed apartment with sea view. We arrived to a pleasant check in and found our room( bit annoyingly there was a small flight of steps we had to negotiate with large pram etc) . Initially disappointed in the dated room but it was large with seating and 2 rather high single beds. The main bedroom had a huge bed. Flat screen tv's but no English channels. Mini bar with small amount in it but was restocked( no wine) lots of hanging space. Large bathroom with terrifyingly noisy jacuzzi but separate shower which was helpful. Our sea view balcony did have a great view after peering over the 3ft plus solid concrete wall, sadly not a view we could enjoy sitting with a glass of wine, and after watching my 2 children teetering precariously on rickety cheap chairs to look over the wall, the balcony remained locked with the key hidden most of the time. It was very hot in the room and after requesting a fan was told the AC was excellent. We eventually stuck some card in the slot to keep it running 24/7 and this kept it just cool enough. Pool and gardens were pretty and well maintained. Sunbed he'll. we soon realised it was going to be a chore to get a bed. We managed to get a couple of beds each morning by getting there for 7 and moving bits about. Did not often get a parasol though which was a killer. There were beds in the gardens and beach but our children wanted to be in the pool and you cannot relax if your bed is miles away. The sand was too hot on the beach making that not my favourite choice. It also wasn't very clean even first thing in the morning. The children loved the water slides but I do not think health and safety matches our uk standards. We used the kids club and the girls were very nice even taking our smaller boy to be with his sister but it is not secure, the door is always open and children are free to wonder about. Not what I have ever experienced before. The dinner club for them was good as it gave us a break some nights. We only tried the buffet, not organised enough to book a la carte ( we were at the pool at booking time). It was not good. Very bland poorly organised repetitive, queues and generally a stressful affair, especially running around to sort the children first, breakfast did not have much in the way of usual fare ( beans sausages etc) and my plain eating children struggling to eat. Service was erratic, some better than others , but very rarely did I receive a top up of drinks. Bar service too was hit and miss- outside much better, inside I was ignored to have men served before me always. V annoying. The beach restaurant at lunch was best and actually the burgers near the pool ended up being a popular choice. Otherwise we would have eaten out had there been anywhere else to go. The prom walk to side took at least 40 mins. We did this a couple of times and taxi'd back. But all the shops are the same and the hassle a little wearing. ' cheaper than tesco' was a popular chant. We did the pirate cruise outside the hotel which kids loved and they would go back tomorrow. Sadly their stressed , disappointed parents will be unlikely to return.
Harken the restaurant manager was very helpful in our search for milk for our little boy, the kids club girls were very nice and the lifeguards friendly, otherwise it was not memorable for too many good reasons. A refit may help but the location didn't suit us anyway.
We did not get sick ( except for catching a verucca- thank you perissia!) and assume our holiday had ended before it happened but don't think the food hygiene was great and found soap in toilets etc empty several times. Once resorting to traipsing into the men's to find some. I imagine many others would not have been so diligent . Of course it could have been the huge jar of rancid butter that was wheeled out every morning ! I was drawn in by the rave reviews on here and can't imagine how people's standards or experiences can differ so greatly. I'm my experience this is a 3.5 star and I would be curious to how much difference the refurb can make to that.

Room Tip: High floor full balcony with sea view

We stayed at the Perissia from 15th - 31st August 2013, this was our fifth time here in this wonderful hotel, as previous years we had a fantastic holiday, all the hardworking staff remember you and make you feel as though you are visiting family. The hotel is extremely clean and well presented we always have a room overlooking the tennis courts which seems to be the quiet part of the hotel and the views overlooking the sea are wonderful.
There is so much choice of food in this hotel from the buffet restaurant, 5 a la carte restaurants, beach restaurant, snack bar and even a cake cafe - don't even think about dieting!!!
Also there's a choice of bar areas to have a cocktail from nice quiet areas to more livelier depending on choice ( hello to veli in the key club número uno) the evening shows this year were better than ever very professional, daytime activities are available with the wonderful animation team hello to all of you x we are lucky to have at least 2-3 foreign holidays each year but we still keep coming back to this hotel you will find it hard to beat this hotel and looking forward to seeing the revamp next year. Thank you Tolga and all your staff for another wonderful holiday xx

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room request one overlooking the tennis courts

I've rested here for 2 weeks in June. Everything was perfect. Food - fantastic, animation - great.
The stuff here is lovely. Everyone speaks on 2-3 languages. Ladies-animators are also cute:)
They always pulled me to different competitions and activities.
I liked this hotel very much. Also advice it for family recreation.

We are at present staying at sentido perissia and we have to say every thing so far is excellent staff are happy to help every thing clean and tidy, and the choice of food second to none, a lot of German guests who seem to always get served first but we will see how it goes more to follow.

Room Tip: More to follow watch this space.

We stayed here 250713 to 040813 and had a fantastic time. The hotel was lovely with lots for the children to do. Staff really good and always willing to help .
Both our daughters had their birthdays whilst on holiday and we booked in the Chinese restaurant for one birthday and the Italian for the other, staff in both restaurants were great and made sure the girls had memorable birthdays. We ordered birthday cakes to be in both restaurants which were fantastic and the staff really made a fuss of us .
The entertainment/ animation team were great too and got the girls on stage and involved . Plenty of bars around the hotel if you didn't want to watch the evening entertainment which was excellent. The upstairs outside bar had great bands on later also. If you want to be involved there are plenty of activities every day or you can go down to the beach and relax in peace. There are plenty of beds available on the beach and you're not crammed in like with some of the other hotels beach areas.
Clean and tidy rooms , made up every day.
Restaurant was lovely also and plenty of choice, never had an empty glass as the waiters constantly refilled, could be a little tedious, but with 5 restaurants to book into you don't feel" hemmed" in . We also booked for the barbeque restaurant which was fun as the children could cook if they wished The outside barbeque restaurant was really good at lunch time too.
We did the boat trip from the beach which was a great day out, markets , waterfalls, beach and sea swimming and excellent value for money and used the beach water sports from Mamoaz?? 3 times
If any down side you have to get up about 6am to get beds around the pool other than that fantastic .
All in all a fantastic, happy holiday, very relaxing and our children want to return next year!!!!
