Had a fantastic time, rooms very spacious and clean. The management and staff are brillant, nothing is too much trouble. Rooms cleaned daily, and cleaning staff very friendly and honest. Free bus to the beach, is a big bonus - Pool is big and cleaned daily, loads of sunbeds.Location is a twenty minute walk to centre of town, but Olive Bar round corner recommended. Seref and his team really go over board to make your holiday perfect. All in all. for the price you pay, its a fantastic bargain and would definatly come again. Had a great stay Thank you so much

Having been at the truva in july, i think these guys need some support, if you want 4/5 star and frills forget it this is not for you. What you do get, is a warm honest welcome, quick service of booking in( as its only a small place), bags carried for you and left alone to unwind. The manager Seref is a lovely guy who will do his best to resolve any issues, the staff are always around and will attend to your every need, the food is basic,but enough if you want a truer picture of more basic life - the chef will do anything of the al-a-carte menu if you wish ,its clean and good value,- the pool was spotless, cleaned and treated nightly,the rooms are large and are made up by the cleaners daily, maybe not everything works 100% to start but the team will do all they can to sort it out, the beauty of this place is the size and staff, as its only 38 rooms the team will know your names and you the same within a few days. The Truva is under recent new owners, Seref and his team are doing their very best, i had a great week. You will see if you go, that everyone when they leave gets a personal send off. A great little place, that is cheap for a week in the sun. I guarantee this place will leave a mark in your memory.

Room Tip: all the rooms offer huge space and are nearly the same

Me and my mum travelled end of June 2013 to the truva family club... We first arrived at 2am after a dreadful transfer from the airport, but that's nothing to do with hotel. When we arrived we was met by the manager and a member of staff who carried our bags to our room, we was still able to get a cup of tea and the manger phoned up and ordered us a takeaway to be be sent to the hotel as we was starving. Which we thought was lovely.
We have never been to SIde before, and the staff were so helpful in telling us everything we should go and see and do. We took them up on a boat trip which was great..
The other people in the hotel were so so so so friendly not in your face but everyone said good morning and smiled, even though they weren't English some of them, they were still pleasant.
The breakfast I really enjoyed as I love cheese and ham butties, and it was to hot for hot food. The dinner menu was just ok it was still really nice but there was only ever one meat dish on so if you didn't like it, there was only rice, chips and salad to choose from.
The location for us wasn't so great as it took a good 20 minute walk to get to the centre of SIde and a taxi is 15 TL. We really wanted to go and explore the accident ruins in daylight but there was no way me being 6 months pregnant and my mum being over 60 we could walk there and back in the sweltering heat. Although there was a free bus anytime to the beach.
The staff were very nice and couldn't do enough for you there English was fantastic. The manger was always around and you cold see him when ever you wanted he would walk around the pool asking you if everything was ok. The poor man never seemed to sleep, but nothing was ever to much trouble.
My mum would just like to add at she had a wonderful relaxing holiday but she wishes she could move the hotel. She is going back in September with her friend to SIde but unfortunately not to the hotel due to location.
Check out the olive restaurant which is round the corner, delicious for afternoon snacks..

My family and I have recently stayed at Truva Family Club in late June 2013. Before we went on holiday we seen some mixed reviews but recently we were informed that Truva Family Club had been taken under new management.

It was Our first holiday to Turkey and We had a fantastic time there, Truva Family Club appartments were brilliant. The staff couldn't be anymore helpful and they were so friendly with everyone. The appartments were Immaculate and cleaned daily with fresh towels being provided. The swimming pool area was Beautiful, the water was blue like the sea.

Truva Family Club also provide excellent value meals for all the family. I would definetly recommend this place to stay as it is great value for the money.

If you are looking for a family holiday that you will remember then Truva Family Club is going to help you get the holiday you want.

In June 2013 my family and I stayed at Truva Family Club, We had an amazing holiday and there was plenty for us to get up to. The staff were very polite,friendly and great fun! I would definetly reccomend Truva Family Club for anyone to stay at. The hotel swimming pool and bar area was immaculate with a lovely garden area, the appartments were spotlessly clean with a maid cleaning daily, the facilities in the appartments were pretty basic and could do with an update on cooking utensils but given the excellent value for money that this holiday provided that could be over looked. So..If what you want is a fun filled family holiday then Truva Family Club is the place to be. Will never forget my first holiday in Turkey! :)

My vacation was wonderful. The hotel was nice. Set in a quiet location and can walk to the beach and facilities. Apartment nice when you can actually cook and lot of space. The two balconies. The
second can enjoy your morning coffee and afternoon coffee or efes ;) in the second the sun. It was nice to go to the apartment, where it was always cleaned and the bed was always adorned and clean. Once was crying, when the towels had been a gorgeous swan/heart on tha bed. The staff was wonderful and boss just great! People there reliable, helpful and good-humored. There, you got to move around freely, without interference by any movement. The soul and the mind rested. I will never forget and I will certainly have to go there. :)

My husband and I have just returned from Truva family Club, having spent two wonderful weeks there. We would like to put the record straight, this place was fantastic. Our rooms were very clean, bedding changed every couple of days, towels changed daily. The manager and staff were very friendly and could not have been more helpful. We loved the fresh meals served. We enjoyed the beautiful big swimming pool. Great value for money. We are certainly going to book again soon. Having two large balconies was a bonus, rooms were very spacious.
