we stayed at this hotel for two weeks in September 2012.we upgraded to a sea side view as the standard rooms were next to a busy road, and we were not disapointed as the room was located in the new annex building with wonderful views across the bay to the harbour of Side.The room was clean and tidy with balcony on the 4th floor with easy access via lift.The food in the dinning room was very good and there was plenty of it with themed nights every night.You could dine inside or out on the terrace.There were also an Italian,Chinese,Turkish resurants to visit.The service was excellent in all the bars and there were a few in this hotel. All the staff were polite.All in all a good relaxing 2 weeks in the sun around a nice pool or on the hotels own beach.

If, for whatever reason, you are in dire need of a week without a worry, without any stress and still like the idea of exploring just a little when you feel like it - this is the place to go. Very friendly staff, nice hotel, fantastic food (Turkish with added international items like at least 15 different breads and rolls in the morning), pool, various bars, beach, nice rooms with good beds. A great place all by itself - and also wonderful if you do not only want to stay in or around the hotel all day. About a 2-3 kilometer walk (waterfront) to Side center and the archaeological areas, 15 minutes walk to the big mosque which you are allowed to visit (respectful clothing and behaviour is of course required), 30 minutes by bus shuttle to Managvat. Bus stop is right in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: I would always pay a bit extra for the seaside rooms. In case you like to go bed very early: Our room (205) was very close to the Düden bar so until 11 pm when live music stopped it was quite noisy.

We stayed at the Asteria from Oct 25th-Nov 2nd.We arrived at about 2.30am after a 3 hour delay in Manchester.The greeting from reception was friendly and helpful and we were offered food and drinks. Our room was satisfactory(we had chosen a promo deal) It faced towards the road but the double glazing stopped most of the noise.We couldn't see the road as there was a large hedge beyond our balcony.
We liked the beach bar and pool bar and enjoyed lovely lunches there. We dined on the terrace for breakfast and evening meal and preferred this to the main dining room which we thought was rather sterile and lacking in character.(Too much like a canteen.)A lot of the food at the buffet was not to our taste but we always found something! The desserts were very nice.
The waiters and other staff were very good. They were good humoured and always keen to please.We loved the beach and always found a sunbed and often just by the sea.
We didn't try the a la carte restaurants as you had to book these between 10-11am and we were on the beach by then!
Our minor irritations were the number of cats and kittens,especially near the eating areas. Guests and occasionally staff fed them and they hung around the tables.It would also be nice to be shown to a table instead of wandering around looking for one.
The hotel can be a bit confusing in its layout and you will probably need to use the map for the first day.The large number of steps make it unsuitable for less mobile guests.
An excellent holiday and we may well retutn to the Asteria.

Stayed at the hotel 12th to 19th October. Arrived c3am and all we had to eat after a long journey was Jam and Bread!! Rep said all his flights arrive this time so why cant hot food or a bit more food be supplied.
Didnt realise there was 2 reception areas either which was a slight problem as we had to come down to one reception, walk through linking corridors to the second reception area then down to -4 in the lift. From there we had to walk 65 winding steps to the pool area.
Grounds were excellent though very well manicured. Staff were very helpful and food in the Pool Bar was excellent. Didnt think food in the resteraunt was as good though.
Entertainment was ok but again a long walk from the hotel to the outside theatre - again down to -4 and then 65 steps to the area. Weather was excellent however the lack of air conditioning was a big let down.

Stayed at the Asteria hotel 12-10-12 / 19-10-12. Transfer from airport approx 1hr. Very friendly and welcoming staff at the hotel, always willing to help. Hotel is altogether on 5 floors, but does have lifts. You are allowed 1 free ala carte meal at the hotel, either turkish, italian or chinese - italian amazing but very hot room (wasnt any aircon). Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner buffet all excellent aswell as the pool and beach bar. After ordering your first few drinks at the bar, the staff then remember what you have and the drinks just keep flowing without you even having to get up!. Excellent beach with plenty of sunbeds. Pool area big with 2 slides (think we had more fun than the kids there!) Animation team hard working - although we did feel a little left out at beginning of the week as the majority of guests were from germany, netherlands, sweden, france etc and the team spoke these langauages well. Although on day 3 after being pulled up on stage (dennis - from animation team) came and spoke to us after and we built up a good relationship and from then on involved us more, volleyball, bowls, shooting, aquacise etc. We also had a turkish scrub and massage - its an experience! very rough, every boned in my body cracked, but least i can say ive done it. Had professional pictures taken by the photgrapher there, all i can say is exellent!!! Would recommend the walk into side town, lots of shops to do some bargain hunting in and lovely ruins to look round too. **take note** we took turkish lira but they except euro's and sterling which they would rather have! Would go back tomorrow! 5star in everyway.
