“A great holiday with the foreigners!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

This is a fab hotel, and we have had a great time.

1st impressions of the hotel are wow! It looks amazing. The hotel is located in a forest, right on the beach. The reception, restaurants, bars accomodation etc are all in separate buildings built in between the trees. It is certainly a 5 star set up.

The beach is a mixture of pebbles, shingle & sand, and can be awkward to get in the sea without shoes.

The only area I was disappointed with was the restaurant, more 3 star than 5. The food is quite good with a large selection, but the staff were always slow to clear the tables. There were plenty of tables for everyone, but rarely clean ones, as the staff were more interested in closing off an area early, rather than clearing the other tables for the next guests. The soup was always only warm.

The hotel is almost entirely Russian. The staff generally speak Russian with very limited English, and Tekirova is an entirely Russian resort. The staff were fab & polite, but you can't have any banter with them as they don't understand enough English! All the entertainment is in Russian, and totally caters for the majority. This didn't retract from our holiday as we didn't partake in any of the entertainment.

We booked our trips thru "Pipo tours". Again the trips were Russian dominated, but very well organised.

Payment around the resort is preferred in Euros or American Dollars.

We were worried as well as everyone else about the previous reviews but we took a punt.

When we were leaving we discussed what we thought of the resort and the word my wife used was "Pleasant". Don't get me wrong we had a great time and my kids loved every minute of it. However we were told by our travel agent that it was a platinum rated resort and they had not long taken over it.

It is by no means what we would call platinum level. There was nothing dramatically wrong but lots of little niggles add up to our lower rating.

The good points:

The room was a good size and well appointed. Plenty of room for myself my wife and two boisterous boys!
The grounds are well tended and the hotel is set in a great location.
Plenty of pools and set between the Med and the Taurus mountains it is very idyllic.
The food was of a very good standard throughout our stay and there was plenty of it!
We took advantage of the theme nights and thoroughly enjoyed our Turkish and Italian meals.
There were plenty of activities for all of the family and a surprising amount of them were free!

The bad points

The resort has seven swimming pools and only one life guard on duty at any one time? He only seemed interested in how good he looked (his opinion).
The pool rules stated that toddlers and babies have to wear nappies (if needed) when in the pool. This was not policed as we watched plenty of Russian children using the pool naked. Two year old children and babies do not have full control of their bladders believe me!
The service from the waiters apart from one notable exception was pretty poor. They forgot orders, had to get colleagues who spoke English to translate for them and generally ignored you unless you kept at them!
The room was not cleaned regularly! Or should i say the cleaner turned up though didn't actually do much!
The accommodation is in an idyllic setting but the block system made it feel like a prison camp! There is no sea view and none of the rooms have a view to write home about.
The kids club although well appointed the children were left to do what they wanted and there seemed to be no set structure and my eldest was bored and only went once.
The day trips are expensive and not really worth the cost.
The resort caters extensively for its eastern European customers. I would suggest that 90-95% of the resorts custom is Russian. Therefore the entertainment is in Russian. The staff speak Russian fluently and German however their command of English is minimal and communication can be difficult. One example of which is my wife asked one meal time for a spoon and ended up with a child seat?! On the subject of the Russians and this is no reflection on the resort but to a man and I include the women and children in this, they are the rudest ignorant people I have ever met. They push to the front of queues, push you out of the way to get past and they do not like to give way even if you are carrying bags and a child. I ended up having to join them and shoved them aside and physically removed them if they pushed to the front!

On one occasion there was a fight in the lobby between members of staff roughly 15. This occurred on the Victory day celebration. Not acceptable! Also some friends we made had a wedding ring stolen from their room even though the rooms are electronically locked.

All in all it was a pleasant stay but as we were told it was a platinum resort and we paid for a platinum resort we expected to stay at a platinum resort. Alas it was not so. We enjoyed our stay but would find it difficult to recommend to anyone and certainly won't be returning.

We were worried about going after all the bad comments. But I can,t believe were all the bad reviews come from. The hotel & grounds are amazing. Rooms are set as if your in a jungle, very clean every were. Food fantastic, staff friendly . The hobbie centre was brilliant our daughter loved it. The entertainment on the evening was brilliant. We can not fault this hotel & were going back next year with more of our family. Don't believe all the bad comments holiday of a life time.

This is for me the best experience since I am travelling.
I went already more than 25 times to Turkey.
That's why I have been there for the 10th time already since 2007.
And I will be back even more times.
Nice welcome presents in the room (fruit and wine).
The rooms, restaurants, pools and all areas are very clean.
Even the toilets dispite some behaviour of some guests.
The towels are changed every day and the rooms are cleaned every day.
In the restaurant everything goes smoothly and food is very nice and tasty.
The food quality and choice was amazing. very nice buffets.
You have all kind of food: international aswell as local.
Daytime aswell as evening animation is very professional and adapted to everyone.
Personnel is very nice, kind and helpfull.
This is an experience you should live and I completely agree with Karen W's comment.

First impressions were excellent and the hotel & facilities (including entertainment) continued to impress us for the whole week we were there. The Rooms, restaurants, pools and all areas generally were very clean. This was the first time we experienced All Inclusive and I had some doubts but it was not at all intrusive as I thought it might have been. Good choice for families or group of friends. The food quality and choice was amazing. Still get the towels on beds scenario at the crack of dawn but, there aren't many hotels in the Med that don't have this issue. If you can't beat them, join them! On the upside, we always found spare sun beds and umbrellas at anytime of the day. There was also plenty of swimming pool space and it didn't feel crowded. Best bit, is the SCUBA diving. Hassan and his team at the Blue World Diving Centre make you feel so welcome and make the whole experience so enjoyable whether you are experienced or new at it! They make great Turkish coffee too!

The hotel was pleasant, beautiful surroundings in tuned with the environment. Some areas of the hotel lacked cleanliness; for example the toilets not cleaned on a regular basis, towels not changed in rooms or replaced. The hotel is extremely busy in August and you have to wait around for a table for every meal. Most staff are friendly and helpful.
If you are considering this hotel and you happen to be African/Caribbean or a person of colour then be aware that you will be constantly stared at and or asked to have a picture taken by some Russian/ Kazakhstan guest. At one point I felt that I came from another planet as this treatment my family and I were subjected to became extremely rude and a reminder of how narrow- minded human beings can be. For example while eating dinner a child come up to me and touched my face and hands. (The parents sat there staring at me) At the Turkish bath organised by Thomson’s I was asked if I could take a picture with the massage therapist (Turkish) despite the fact that I was undressed. I refused. These occurrences were endless; my children were also subjected to this constant harassment during our stay (pictures taken without my consent). Unfortunately; this experience has left a negative impact on their views of some cultures as well as Turkey.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor if you dislike ants
