The hotel is ideally located right on the beach and offers excellent service and facilities.
The a-la carte restaurants were really good with an excellent choice htree to chose from and each could be used once per week.
Food is the buffet restuarantwas good with a wide choice of food.
The beach bar for lunchtime snacks was brilliant and offered a good range of snacks.
The hotel is right on the beach and it was a nice 45minute stroll into Side with its pretty harbour shops and the temple of apollo.
The only downside for me was the poor quality entertainment in the evening

Just got back, from a ten day stay.Had a very good time at this v-good hotel. Food excellent and very varied, brilliant staff who look out for all your needs. The room service personal are worth their weight in gold, entertainment team are mainly good, but need to look at current programe could do with more interaction with all guests, one is a little over the top. Spa and hairdressers are both well worth a visit (10/10). The bar staff and pastieria are both a very good credit to the hotel. Reception staff are very good and guest relations are well informed and informative. would have given a 5 rating if not for 2 things - kettle lead to short had to put kettle on floor to brew up, and entertainment just a shade similar no nightclub. hoping return soon

Room Tip: our room good- overlooking pool. Just get Euro's most shops deal in this currency, you may have...

Wonderful holiday enjoyed it very much would have liked to have stayed longer. Weather great, blue skies every day. The food was excellent everything had taste in it right up to leaving to go home to the UK. I have never had such good food anywhere. Congratulations to the CHEF it made the holiday.

My husband, daughter and myself stayed here last October. Our first fully inclusive holiday. Normally we go self catering for reasons of privacy and relaxation. How wrong have I been?! This was an amazing holiday, the weather in Turkey perfect for this time of year, lovely and warm without being hot.
The food in the various restaurants was lovely, a fantastic choice. We looked forward especially to the day time lunches, which were lovely and fresh, beautiful salads along with freshly made traditional food.
If your looking for relaxation, good food, friendly staff, great weather, snorkelling, and nothing more, look no further. Had a wonderful time.

Our first all inclusive holiday and our first time to Turkey. We were not disappointed. January gives you great value for money and the Hemera is a fantastic place to stay. Our room with balcony overlooking the pool was very comfy indeed and had everything we needed. The hotel was operating at very low occupancy which made it feel very peaceful. If you want action and bustle and non stop entertainment then this maybe not the time or place. Weather was good enough in Jan. Some overcast days( need a coat), some thunderstorms, and some sunny days (T shirt weather) with temperatures getting to 15 and even 18 degrees. The Hemera grounds are very well kept and the pool looked immaculate ( too cold to try it) though there is a small indoor heated pool by the spa and gym. Food was good quality. Salad selection to die for, good variety of hot food. Understandably with low numbers only one a la carte restaurant was open (1 visit per week) and although the menu didn't change we managed to eat our way around it during our 4 weeks stay. Overall, most staff were very helpful and attentive and we quite liked the sense of informality about the place. Even though their English was limited (better than my Turkish!) we could have some light hearted banter with some of the waiters. Would we return? Yes. Though we hear next winter (2013/2014) is refurbishment time for Hemera, so it may be closed Nov-March.

First time we stayed in turkey was the Lara beach Hotel in 2009 5* very good and deserved it rating at the time. So we decided to try another Barut hotel the hemera not as good as the lara but the service was good food OK rooms clean similar to Lara. Grounds and beach very good with the prom that you can walk to the centre.

Room Tip: Try and get a room in the garden area less noise from the pool.
