“excellent holiday, didn't want to come home”
Reviewed May 21, 2010

have just come back from an excellent holiday with my husband, daughter her partner and our 19mth grandaughter and what a time we have had. My husband was worried about taking a small child away for the first time but the whole trip was made so easy by lovely staff.
It started well at reception, we were greeted by happy helpful staff althought it was very late in the evening, shown to lovely clean and comfortable rooms, with a seaview which I hadn't paid extra for.
Everthing about this holiday was great, the staff cannot do enough for you and yet they do not encroach on your holiday either.
The all inclusive means just that, food, drinks, cakes, coffee's ice creams, soft drinks, snacks, the snack bar by the beach was lovely, food cooked fresh and to order.
There is plenty to do, activities all day for those who want to join in, the childrens play area's were great and help was always on hand, the entertainments team were excellent and looked after the big kids too!
I am now about to book again for next year as it really was the best holiday we have had and I have to say I have been lucky to go to some very nice hotel's but none come close to this.

We've just returned from the Hemera Resort & Spa in Side, Turkey with my parents, my other half and our 19 month old daughter. We had the best time. We'd never been all inclusive before and it was pure indulgence, no rubbish brands of vodka and even champers and cocktails were included, ok it wasn't Veuve Cliquot but still palatable. The selection of food, cakes and snacks was awesome, something for everyone and of a very good quality. The resort itself was right beside the sea and the facilities were beyond excellent, plenty of activities for all of us, archery, shooting for the boys, indoor soft play centre and outdoor play area for our daughter as well as baby pool and finally aerobics and spa facilities for us girls. There were a couple of pools, one of which was huge.

The entertainment team were brilliant, really fun and friendly. In fact all the staff were very friendly and welcoming and you instantly felt at home.

We had rooms with a sea view and i don't know whether this was pure luck because we didn't pay extra for them. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.

Overall this holiday was definately good value for money. A week wasn't long enough so i recommend 10 days or 2 weeks to anyone going.

This was our 1st holiday to Turkey, after 14 night's at this hotel the only bad point was leaving. We have already booked to return to the Hemera next year! Everything about this hotel was 110%, the staff are really friendly and helpful, the food is plenty of and suit's every taste, the room's and grounds of the hotel are kept spotless at all times, the private beach is beautiful as are the in and outdoor swimming pools, the entertainment team are brilliant from the fun and games around the pool/beach in the day, to the amazing shows they perform in the evenings, so much hard work goes into ensuring guests of all ages have the best holiday possible. We cant wait until next year Hemera 2011.

Arrived after really good flight times from Gatwick. Hotel really good, rooms very clean and hotel gardens and pools spotless.
Pools outside were a bit cool but it was only early april and they warmed up 2 degrees as the weather got warmer. Pool really good for swimming lengths as about 70 m long. Gym at hotel also good with 2 running machines 2 seated bikes and weights.
Best thing versus Lara where we stayed last year was the prom that has just been built and goes all the way into Side and is superb quality. In total its about 2 miles long.
Food at Hotel really good and got better as season really got under way.
No fights for suinloungers and hotel staff superb.
Entertainment staff really friendly and surprisingly good and not at all pushy. Good selection of things to do for all ages and good fun.
Free kayak and pedalos on the beach, but sailing at 25 euros per hour a bit dear.
Prices cheaper in turkish lira, although everything priced in Euros.
All in all a great holiday and looking to go back again we enjoyed it so much.

We arrived at the Hemera after a stress free journey to find a beautiful hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms and facilities in them were superb with everything ultra modern and clean. The huge restaurant was a bit daunting at first but seconds after making a mess of my tablecloth 2 members of staff came over to change it. Then it was the main course.
To cater for such an amount of people must be difficult at the best of times but this quality of food is rare, from breakfast to evening meal was simply fabulous but not recommended for weightwatchers.
Pool area and gardens always tip top as well as the local cats.
Beach is superb and when then prom is finished it will be even better.
