This is the fifth time we have visited this hotel so obviously we are big fans and once again it didn't disappoint.

Great room, large, very clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay, cleaning staff exceptionally helpful. Great view from room looking down over the pool and out to sea.

All the staff we met in the hotel were excellent, very welcoming, friendly and good at their jobs, we were looked after very well.

The food was good, the snack bar had the usual luchtime snack menu, served throughout the day not just at lunch, the main restaurant operates a buffet style service with plenty of choice including salad, cold meats, cheeses, soup, hot meats, fish, pasta, usually each evening had a theme eg italian, turkish etc and much of the food was cooked as you waited. Plus a great choice of desserts, cakes and ice cream. Breakfast was also a buffet and included cereals, breads, cheeses, cold meats, jams, fried or boiled eggs, omlettes, beans, hot dogs etc
During the day cakes are served from 4pm til 6 and ice cream from 5pm til 6. Absolutely no chance of anyone going hungry.

The animation team were the only weak point of this years stay - nowhere near as good as the team last year and the year before. Lack of communication with guests seemed to be the problem, entertainment was on every evening but it was hit and miss as to when and where it was being shown and there seemed to be a lot more imported acts rather than the entertainment team doing the entertaining.

Having said that we had a great holiday, many thanks to Ozgur, Yasin, Serdar, Umit, Savas, Ayvas and all the other staff we met for helping to make our stay such a good one.

Will definately be back next year.

Just returned from a week's stay. Rooms very large with a sitting area. We had a pool view. Minibar in room with water soft drinks stocked daily. Pool very large with loads of sunbeds but we preferred sitting by the beach. Again loads of sunbeds and shade plus a pool bar that serves lunch. Food very nice but the large buffet restaurant is chaotic at busy times. Things not laid out in best way. Can end up wandering round looking for things contributing to the chaos! We booked a very special boat trip due to a commemoration for my mum's uncle who died in WW2. Mehmet and Billy were superb in sorting this out for us and the Queen Boat and it's crew were brilliant. Also enjoyed the trip to Gumusluk which is a beautiful fishing village about 20 mins up Coast. Again trip sorted by Mehmet. All in all a great stay and would happily return. Turkish people are lovely, thanks. Final word....the. Turkish bath and massage in the spa was superb!

Room Tip: Ask for a high room looking at pool

There is a dilemma when choosing a holiday near an established resort. Do you want the convenience of being able to walk to the marina and shops against the more compact nature of the site and that the hotel is a few years old and a bit tired.

The hotel is probably the best in that area if you want to walk to the marina and it is not a bad hotel. Beach volleyball was fun, the beach is good and the staff are pleasant and polite. The complex is also secure and it is difficult for non residents to wander in. I also met a number of people who had returned from previous stays so it is not a bad hotel. Good mention to the animation team of Joe (volleyball) and Dasha (dance and exercise).

However, 5* it is not, the hotel lacked the quality and restfulness that 5* should bring. Sun beds around the pool are very close together, informal seating areas near bars are busy. Worst of all is the main dining room. There must be seats for 400 to 500. You enter through one set of double doors and the food is placed either side of the entrance on long serving areas. It causes chaos as people going in and out are side stepping people with food. The restaurant is also very noisy with cheap chairs. Fresh orange at breakfast costs 5tl. Food at all meals in the main restaurant was repetitive and of a very average quality. We ate where possible in the small speciality restaurants which are good but need to be booked in advance.

We have used Karia travel for taxis on two occasions now and both were good. £69 return.

Room Tip: Get room overlooking sea or pool, not the rear road. There are larger rooms available which have a s...

Our first time to Turgutreis (we’d been to Bitez before). Hotel was very nice and clean.
The main restaurant was used for meals during the day, with the option of using ‘ethnic’ (Turk/Italian/Asian) restaurants for evening meals. There was a tremendous range of food, although with the salad bar not everything was labelled so you could be surprised. The Red Cabbage (more a ‘pink’ than ‘purple’) was delicious. Of the hot meats, the Veal was especially good, and I’m not a veal fan when in the UK. The staff were excellent and very attentive, especially a waiter called “Ayvaz”.
There was a private beach, with more than enough sunbeds & shades, with a centrally placed bar which served free drinks all day long, but there wasn’t any problem with excessive consumption of alcohol or rowdy behaviour. There was an excellent swimming pool, as well as a children's swimming pool well shaded from the sun with 3 slides/chutes.
No-one has mentioned it but I noticed a motorised chair at the side of the main swimming pool so that you could lower a disabled adult into the water – not seen that before – and goes to show how disabled-friendly the whole hotel was.
The room itself was very spacious, the bed was very comfortable.
Only 3 complaints really :
a) in the room there were 2 sofas, but only 1 chair (although there were 2 out on the balcony) and no table (just a ‘desk’ running the length of the wall). As we like to play “Scrabble” during the heat of the day, it wasn’t ideal to balance the board on the sofa. The room needs a small circular table.
b) Whilst there was Air Conditioning in the room, with the ambient temperature being 28-30 during the day, and 20-25 overnight, we had the AirCon on full most of the time (it was the last week in September). Unfortunately the architect hadn’t given enough thought to this : the cold air blew very nicely onto the desk, and caught the bottom of one’s feet, but failed to have any direct effect on the upper half of the body. I’d hate to have been in there in July/August.
c) In the restaurant, there was an accident one evening and a glass of beer fell on the floor and smashed. Rather than clean it up straight away, the staff put a chair over it, I presumed so they could clean it up 30 minutes later at the end of the evening meal. This meant though that people were walking in the liquid, and if they had slipped could have cut themselves on the broken glass. Some 2 days later we could still see bits of broken glass under the table – so not sure what the schedule was for giving the restaurant a thorough clean.
We went with Thomson, and we did do a trip over to Kos (see separate review), but the other choices weren't really much to go by - the options when we were in Bitez were much better, but this is a nicer hotel.

Room Tip: Room numbering is a little odd - eg 5406 means block 5, level 4 ... I guess blocks 5-6-7 were better...

Dear kapple999,

Thank you for sharing your comments and your suggestions which have been noted and shared with upper management which helps us continuously improving ourselves. One thing we would like to inform you is our ac system automatically measures the outside temperature and takes the average of the hours which means hotter the weather colder the air blown by the system which means you can safely sit and play scrabble in your room in July and August also. Looking forward to host you again at La Banche in the near future

Warm Regards

Returning for our 6th time we are delighted to report that this hotel is maintaining and in places excelling in keeping up its 5* reputation. Unlike other hotels the management must work very very hard out of season to ensure that maintenance is carried out and that the resort looks fresh and clean. Housekeeping is still to it's usual high standard. I think the only thing that could better it would be to have coffee and tea making facilities in the room and that a British Pallet was catered for at Breakfast. Although the fridges are topped up daily with cold branded soft drinks.

Already booked for next year.
