So I went for a week in May, not a bad place but definitely a place for families as opposed to couples or groups.

A lot of children so often you will have babies crying or shouts (as I heard) "Chanel, Chanel, Chanel, don't do that, come here, sit down, Romeo, Romeo, Romeo, Dont squirt that man with water", they should really have signed up for Nanny 911 and stayed at home for a week!

The entertainment is OK, 2 girls from Liverpool who are very keen do most of the recruiting, a lot of silly stage games, bingo, Kareoke and singers etc.

The rooms are average and it seems that once you get there they want more money for everything £10 for the TV for 1 week, £7 for the safe, AC in the bedroom is included but if you want it for the living space that is extra too. Even make you buy your own loo roll after you have used the one when you arrived!

As for the 'Friendliness' maybe I am cynical but they seem to really be interested in again people opening their wallets.

The onsite British supermarket is very expensive and there is a Kippa (Tesco equivalent) just 5 minutes away, also the trips can be bartered down a good 25% on what the reps will offer you.

I would stay again we paid circa £230 each for a week including flights/transfer and accomodation, others mentioned they had got it as low as £175 each. I wouldn't pay much more if I returned.

A lot of the place is now 'British' with almost all the restaurant menus now having more English and European food than Turkish. An average 3 course meal with with drinks for 2 was about £45 (95 T Lira)

First visit to Turkey and couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay. Club Exelsior has all the facilities you could possibly want.
Our room could have done with a bit of a facelift but for the amount of time we spent in it it didn't really matter that much. Everyone from the entertainment staff, waiters, receptionists and housekeeping made us feel very welcome and worked tirelessly to make sure everyone enjoyed their stay.
The hotel is very central, just a 5minute walk to the Thursday market, 15minutes to the beach and about 20-25minutes to the harbour and bazar. The on-site hairdresser is very reasonably priced as is the Turkish bath and spa. The 'British' Supermarket next door is not British at all and is very expensive.
We had a fabulous holiday and have booked to go again next year :0)

I had great expectations of this hotel after reading such fantastic reviews, only to be VERY disappointed in the early hours of my arrival!!!
I won't write an essay and try to get the the point.... YES the facilites at the hotel were good, pools, slides, childrens pools, play area (one charged at 5 lira a day), turkish bath, expensive clothes/souvenior shop, expensive hairdresser etc etc..... Can't fault the range of entertainment, although it wasn't brilliant.... Sorry to say the ladies from Liverpool and David, you were just too annoying and too much to bare, i like a luagh but you were just too in peoples face who have come away for a relaxing holiday....
I stayed in the junior complex and it is quieter than the main block next door.... a good thing by day around the pool to escape the lively bunch next door.... Rooms were of appalling quality, how this accomodation can be rated 3* plus i do not know... yes, i had a microwave, toaster, kettle, good utensils to cook with but the room and decor were disgraceful, i had bare wires hanging out the walls, the extractor fan was a muddle of wires and definately a fire hazard, wallpaper peeling away from the walls, dents and chips in all the wood work, floor tiles uneven and cut my foot on them, view of shacks and what looked like the start of a scrap yard from my balcony.....
Aircon good in the bedroom and cheap enough if you wanted to hire it in the living room too. Saftey deposit boxes £7 however, not located in your rooms, they are in what look like locker blocks along the corridor next to reception so you have no idea if they are tampered with, also they aren't secured to the wall!!!
Walls are paper thin, you can hear everything next door and next door but one, especially through the bathroom airbrick, not brilliant when you have strangers f**ing and blinding and bonking and coming home at all hours!!
I stayed on the 4th floor in the Junior block but it is certain to say the main block is the far nicer decorated and cleaner block...
If you haven't been to Turkey before or its been over a year since you were there last, please trust me when i say IT IS NO LONGER A CHEAP PLACE TO VISIT.... Exchabge rate is approx 2.22 Lira to the pound in resort, hotels rate a lot less than bureaus and shops. Bottle of small EFES lager, 5 Lira to 7 Lira, average meal in hotel and resturants 17 to 24 Lira, cocktails 11 to 13 Lira, Sunday lunch 18 - 24 Lira, imported drinks are shockingly expensive.... Bar street charging 17 Lira for a Jack Daniels (without the coke)!!!
Best thing about this holiday was the lovely weather, between 30 AND 33 degrees for 2nd week in May.
Hotel good for families, so long as your in the main block and don't mind parting with your money, ice cream in hotel is 4.50 lira and small cup of coke is 5 lira so will definately get expensive having children with you..... Hotel is very hot on their heels if they see you with something you haven't bought from their pool bar or resturant....
Overall an OK holiday but not the best i've had, pretty positive i wont go again, i went to Majorca last June and it was half the flight time, half the transfer time, same price for accomodation and roughly the same price for eating out, will travel there from now on, the Lira isn't what it was and Turkey is no longer that cheap place....

Went to club exelsior on may the 3rd 2010 for a week with my girlfriend. both of us are 19 years old. Loved it so much we're going back in August 2010 and next year. So much to do in the hotel you don't need to leave. Bar staff and restaraunt staff are a good laugh constantly providing amusement. Hakan, Efe, Ally and Dj Dodo are top class guys, who always make such a big effort and are always talking away to customers and dancing about the bar and on the bar. Couldn't have asked for a better stay or a warmer welcome. The rooms were always cleaned by the made who was brilliant and the hotels food and drinks were better than any restaraunt out in the street and cheaper too. Entertaintment staff (david, danielle and chantelle) were always involved and up for a laugh. all in all we are garaunteed to go back. Would recomend BBQ night to anybody worth every Lira.

First went to Club Exelsior in 2006 and have returned on 4 occasions since.
Service, food, and the staff are excellent. Tom, the staff manager, ensures that things run smoothly and everyone is catered for.
Al the best to the staff for season 2010-2011, and we will see you 1st week in May.
P.S. Be prepared. Brian and Allana coming too with their baby. Ahmet and Effie better learn how to change nappies,pretty damn quick!!
