This is our second visit to the Hemera, returning after a great experience 4 years ago. What makes this resort special is the staff who cannot do enough for you. Barmen Simon and Mehstan, waiters Mehmet-Ali and Seyfulla, Animation Team Anna and Ozzy were just some of the people that made our stay memorable. We couldn't fault the hotel grounds and amenities. The hotel seems to be one of the nicer ones in Side - not too big and not too small.
Although probably not five-star standard, the sheer choice of food available throughout the day is fantastic. We generally ate outside during meal times as the dining room did have a bit of a canteen feel (perhaps some better lighting would help).
The main downside we experienced this time round was our room. On our first visit we had a lovely pool view. This year we faced out the back and were woken every morning at 7am by the binmen. We had asked to change rooms but were told this would cost over 100euros for our stay which in retrospect wasn't really acceptable.
Nevertheless, I'm sure we'll return to the Hemera for the great staff, food and amenities.
