“DONT LISTEN TO BAD REVIEWS!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

okay first of all I want to say, DON'T LISTEN TO THESE BAD REVIEWS! seriously. I have been to the plamin Sunset Plaza 7 times and to be honest I wouldn't go anywhere else in turkey. Fantastic for all ages, pool games throughout the day, you'd be a fool not to join in the staff are surely excellent and helpful. entertainment staff are fantastic. The hotel is NOT OLD by any means. Its purely beautiful and a SAFE spot in turkey. It was my first year there in 2008 and I'm still in contact with some of the staff here. They could not do enough for you. Pool area is beautiful but so are the rooms, reception, spa and the lot. My only fault for this place is I wish it was available in All Inclusive as the food and drinks are beautiful. The hotel has a fantastic view of the sunset and a photographer comes around to take pictures with the gorgeous sky behind you. Sadly i haven't returned in the past 2 years, but I am deffo going back soon. if Anyone would like any more information on where to eat out or tours i have done them all i could assist anyone. Again, don't be fooled by these bad reviews because seriously this place is OUTSTANDING.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are quite spectacular but if you would like a bit more privacy maybe not a sea view r...

We stayed in the Palmin Sunset Plaza last summer and had a lovely stay there. It's in a great location if you like to spend time both by the pool and at the beach (although the beach is accessed by a very steep hill). Our room was lovely, spacious and a huge bed, and we found it nice and quiet in the evenings. The food isn't brilliant, and found that we couldn't eat much of what was on offer for breakfast as there were some flies around uncovered food. The location was perfect for us, outside of the town but it was very easily accessed by the frequent dolums that stop outside the hotel entrance. The pool is very nice, large, with view of the sea, and lots of umbrellas. I think it was great value for money. Massages in the spa are lovely too!

Room Tip: If getting a pool view ask for an upper floor when booking for a sea view. We asked could we move to...

Stayed here in November 2012, disappointed was an understatement, the pool area is the main feature on the website,this is nice....but the rest of the hotel is old and vile. Reception is in serious need of renovation, the breakfast room needs a health inspection, and we saw the young men who work with the food actually manhandling it without gloves on a few occasions ! The restaurant is a shoddy little shack that looks like its ready to fall down, same staff in in bar and restaurant who are fine until you don't tip then they literally leave you to get your own drinks etc. The on site shop consists of a shelf of lollys and another one of Doritos, NO snacks or toiletries its just barren. The entertainment on the night we sat in reception was a man and woman running around waving sticks that were alight then a young lad came around showing us all a bag of broken glass that they then got him to lie on while one of the tourists were asked to stand on his back (nail biting stuff !) the other night was 'who wants to be a millionaire ' but the staff couldn't pronounce half of the words correctly so it turned into a comedy act. The breakfast was awful, boiled eggs scrambled eggs and Turkish sausage,bruised apples was the only fruit ALL week, Turkish yoghurt served in a chipped bowl etc just awful. The subway rep Selina was unkempt and dressed very shabbily in a well worn uniform with pins in the hem she had such bad grammar and pronunciation that you would need an interpreter to understand her she spoke of the ' ledda factory 'that sold 'tin or tick ledda' and the cobbledyox streets which translated to the leather factory and cobblestoned streets, kept us for an hour an half just trying to sell her tours...very boring and annoying. The kids club was a small room with bits of broken toys and someone's jeans hanging out of the window to dry, no other activities were there for kids apart from one of the staff playing ball in the pool with some boys. The paths around the hotel were very broken up and dangerous. The beach was very small and filthy, the majority of sun beds were broken,no staff there to help. The path down to the beach is dangerous and not recommended to kids or older people. The other beach the rep recommended was two bus rides away and an exact replica of the one at hotel only bigger. The bus service is frequent but takes 20 mins an sometimes had 20 people in an 8 seater van! Only nice thing about this place is the pool area which is new, check out the pics they are all of the pool area none of the restaurant or breakfast room or reception, and now you know why...don't go there!!!! You've been warned.

We stayed here on the last week of the season so everything was winding down. I have to say we had a great time. The staff were friendly and helpful!

This hotel is right beside a lovely (small) beach...down quite a steep hill. The views are amazing! The beach is only shared with one other hotel so we always got a sun-lounger every time we went down. Ladies Beach is a short walk (or dolmus ride) away - it has a much larger beach and a promenade with shops and resturants.

The rooms in the hotel are a great size - we didn't get/pay for a room overlooking the pool but we had the sun on our balcony in the morning which was lovely. Most of the summer season the resturant is outdoors but as the nights were getting a little chilly we sometimes ate indoors. The food and drink in the hotel was really reasonable and there is a great selection on the menu. The portions are huge as well! Breakfast was lovely with a selection of cereals, dried fruits and yougurt, small danish pastries, selection of cheeses, fresh fruit, tea/coffee/cherry juice/orange juice, selection of tiger breads and for a small tip there is a guy who will make up an omelette which is delicious. There is also scrambelled eggs, boiled eggs and sausages. I see some negative reviews about the breakfast - WISE UP, you're not in the Hilton!!!!

The pool is a great size and there is a small pool for kids which is great. I would definately recommend this hotel for families with small kids. There is entertainment each night - its not mind blowing but the kids seemed to have a fantastic time!

There is a spa with a turkish bath and a salon. The prices are reasonable. The shop is quite basic - there is not much in it! Make sure he gets himself a shave!!

The town is really close by, when you leave the hotel's main entrance onto the road the dolmus/bus stop is just on the left at the small seat! The number 5 bus will take you into town - get off at the Dennybank its (€2.50/5lira)....the markets are great - MAKE SURE you have lots of room in your suitcase to carry things home!! The port area is also worth a visit - there are some really good sea-food resturants around.

We went on the tour of Pamukkle...its a 3hour bus trip to get there (with a quick stop half way) Pamukkle contains hot springs and travertines, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. IT really is beautiful - the tour also brings you to have a turkish mud bath and an Onyx factory. DO NOT BUY items on these visits/tours unless you don't mind being ripped off! The tour guide gets a huge percentage of the purchases that the people on the tour buys. Therefore the prices of the items are 3 or 4 times more than the prices in the markets. Yes I got ripped off paying €50 for an item that was €20 in the market. LESSON LEARNED!

Overall we found it a great place to stay! We would definately go back.

Room Tip: Rooms with a pool view wont necessarily get the sun so you could have a pool view with a dull room.

I stayed for one week in October 2012 with my husband. It was great value for money. The rooms are large and very clean. The breakfast could do with some improvement. The location is great , very close to the sea and the hotel has great views.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor.

We had a great trip here at the start of October. Hotel was very clean, in a great location - views were lovely, small beach down a steep path, or a quick ride on the dolmus bus to Ladies Beach. BBQ night was great and the omlettes were good for breakfast. Beds were very hard though, but that was the only complaint.
