Hotel was lovely, we were given a room with a "view" over the street but for 5 euro extra per day we moved to a much nicer room with a sea view.
Rooms were clean and quite comfy (we got extra pillows) and the pool area was lovely.
The food in the hotel wasn't great so we ate every day in Mare's across the street which is really lovely and Ali and the guys there are really friendly.
The only thing we had a problem with was the animation team. They are really annoying especially when you just want to sit by the pool and relax. They provide the entertainment in the hotel at night too so we just went out every night. I think the hotel would be much better without them, and the terrible music they play all day by the pool!
We would definitely recommend the turkish bath in the hotel, it's really relaxing and your skin feels great after it. Also Ephesus is quite nearby and a taxi is about €50 which I would recommend instead of booking the day trip.
The dolmus goes into Kusadasi from across the street and is really cheap and has you in town in a few minutes, they do tend to drive a bit fast though, ha ha!

We had a week in the Batihan and it was far too short. The food in Kumsal (Chinese/Italian/Mexican) on the beach was gorgeous and was only topped by the beautiful sunsets. The Irish Bar across the Road which is owned by the Hotel was also great. Staff in both places were attentive and friendly. Breakfast in the Hotel was excellent, lots of things to choose from. The entertainment pool side wasnt my thing but plenty enjoyed it! There was plenty to do in the hotel in the evenings also. Barber, Turkish Bath all on site and to be recommended. Cannot wait till next visit !

I'll try to keep it brief, as I know these things get boring. Very pleasant stay at the Batihan, very friendly people. Very clean, rooms very modern. The entertainment was average, however, I must give a big praise to Casper! Without him the place would be dull, he is an entertainment package all in one! The other's, Alex, Jake and Emre, were fun in their own right, but I disagreed with how they picked on Casper, due to attention he got. You will understand why when you go. Alex for me is a big headed .... who was very irritating.
However, as mentioned the hotel is very commendable, the value we paid was a real snip, I would certianly recommend this hotel highly! My only other bug bear, is the Turkish men, as I was with a young group (19-22) with 3 females, it was evident that the Turkishmen found them appealing. Please be aware of this and don't hesitate to tell them to back off.

Enjoy your stay at the Batihan!!

Very nice and clean hotel, very good food but too hot for our taste.
Beautiful garden, clean sandy beach.
Animaton team - so and so...
Staff - friendly, polite.
Sometimes - too loud music at the pool, especially between 14 and 16 hours.
Very clean pool, funny water-slides.
Great sunsets.

Just returned from a week stay at this hotel, the hotel is brillinat, great pool area with water slides,( these are only turned on at a certain time of day) great bar and steps away from private beach where the staff are lovely and will bend over back ward for you,

From other reviews I had read before we went, the noise at the pool isnt a major problem the entertainment team are brilliant and will play some music ever two hours or so, but if this bothers you, the grounds of the hotel is soooooooo big and well looked after you can move away from it or even go the beach.

The rooms are small and not well insulated from the noise in other rooms but sure your only sleeping in them, but one problem we had was that the doors in the hotel are fire doors ( very heavy duty) and when they slam they are very very loud and will give ya a fright during the night if someone slams the door if your asleep.#

We went half board and the food for half board is horrible please do not waste your money on it, we ended up eating the food in the other three resturantes in the hotel.. good value for money and lovely.Half board food is the same very night, beef goushlash and cold rice, nice salads but that is it!! Breakfast is ok lots of olives n breads but you can get eggs etc.

We got some rain when we were there and the hotel rallied around and got some in door entertainment sorted for us, also becuase of the rain we had a lot of power cuts but they have an emergency generator so that wasnt a problem either.

24 doctor and nurse, hair dressers, three shops photographer ( who are brilliant) got 13 proffessional shots for €50.... turkish bath, massage and disco in hotel. what more can you ask for...

There is safe deposit boxes at reception that cost only €1 a day which is great, the Dolmus stops right outside the hotel... it brings you right into the town, but last bus back is 12am.

Also read that some people were being ripped off by taxi's trying to get back to hotel after a night out, well we just offered the 20lira (€8) and they took us back ,one or two said no so we walked away and they came running after us so make sure to haggle or even offer what you want to pay and believe me they will take it.

I loved this hotel, staff and facilities are brilliant... its well worth staying here and traveling into the centre.. would 100% recommended everthing but the half board food.

The batihan is a fun place to stay. The animation team will keep you entertained all day with activities such as waterpolo, volleyball, darts there's a 24 hour bar nighttime entertainment and best of all waterslides. It is also located on the beach, You can go jetskiing, paragliding and a 10 minute bus from the city centre where you can shop till you drop. The staff are always friendly and courteous. There is also always a good irish nenglish contigent to makr friends

My biggest criticism is that the food is of a low quality.
