“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

We as young Turkish couple stayed in this hotel at the end of August13. Overall we loved everything in the hotel. Greeting at the begining was so nice that they meet with you right after taksi take you to lobby with some drinks. And then take you through the hotel. Although we reserved 2 rooms in main building, they took us to a villa which was nicely exceeding the expectations:) beach was nice however we prefered pier as the sunbeds were more comfartable and there was music all the time. Sea was incredibly clean and blue. We tried all restaurants and they were all great including service and food and wines. Shows were also excellent and very professional. We will definetely go back if we want to stay in an all inclusive hotel:)

Just returned from a week at the Serenity and a week was too short!
On arrival we were greeted from our taxi and taken to reception, sat down and given a drink. We were then told that the three sea view rooms we had booked were not available ( this the third holiday running booked through Travel Republic that this has happened). However we were shown to beautiful superior villa overlooking the golf course with a private pool. After 3 nights we got the rooms in the hotel that we had booked. The hotel reception even offered to re pack our cases for the move.
The seaview rooms are beautiful, large clean, huge beds and good bathroom. We had 4 th floor and the view over the resort and out to sea are amazing.
The whole resort is extremely well maintained and spotless. The grounds are a pleasure to walk through. There is no main pool as we have experienced at other hotels but huge areas of meandering pools with Sunbeds grouped together under the trees. There are literally hundreds of Sunbeds but it can be difficult finding ones not in the shade for most of the day. However, you have use of all the pools at the Gloria Golf hotel and they have a quieter pool just minutes walk from the Serenity. The golf main pool is lovely but too noisy for us. You can help yourself to clean pool towels at all pools and the beach as often as you like.
The beach is huge with a stunning pier and bar at the end. Although the beach is sandy there is an area of pebbles as you enter the sea- not really a problem but the sea becomes deep quite quickly so children would need supervision.
The food at all restaurants is excellent. We are not lovers of All Inclusive buffets but ate there every evening and never had same meal twice. We loved the outside BBQ area and you can take food from main buffet to eat here. Lunch at the Italian and Route 66 was also good. The drinks including wines are all good quality.
I have never stayed in a hotel that has so many staff and you never wait to be served. All staff are courteous and friendly. Some mealtimes were a little interrupted by children being allowed to race around - not the hotels fault but maybe adult only areas could improve this.
Entertainment is good. There is a good variety and you are in charge of how much or how little you want to be part of this.
One little gripe was when requesting a late checkout we were told this would cost 218 euros for one room! After requesting to see the manager we we're given the room for the 5 hours requested at no extra charge.
All round this is a well run, luxurious hotel that ticked all the boxes and we will definitely return.

Room Tip: Top floor seaview main building.

Overall we had a very nice golf holiday with my husband. 36 hole golf course is the biggest in Belek. The personnel of the hotel was very experienced, service is the best among Belek hotels. Serenity is in my top three among all Belek hotels. I prefer Maxx Royal over Serenity when travelling with kids and Kempinski when travelling as a couple.

This was an amazing holiday where you can relax to your hearts content, lots of cocktails and alcoholic drinks available all brand names, food was spectacular in particular the french, asian and italian restaurant during the day,
the spa was amazing althought treatments were over priced.
shows were top class troy was fantastic like a west end show, staff worked extremally hard to meet all our needs.
has left us wondering how we can ever match a holiday next year and may end up at the serenity xx

Room Tip: rooms were amazing, fantastic bathroom with a spa bath and walk in shower, lots of storage/hanging s...

Just back from 1 week at gloria serenity (family of 5 - kids aged 11,8 and 4.).excellent family holiday.previously we've stayed at abama in Tenerife but wanted some more activities as kids got older

Speedy check in with welcome drink and full run down of services /restaurants/kids facilities etc

Stayed in garden villa with hot tub on decking .villa has 2 bedrooms and large living room -perfect for a family.we arranged hot tub to be cleaned and filled every morning.found house keeping to be of high standard.room service very prompt.very good range of toiletries


Food was great.as villa guests you can use restaurants at all 3 gloria hotels as part of all inclusive.otherwise you can dine at each a la carte once a week. We used Turkish, Asian,French and Italian restaurants .all were good.our kids ordered off the standard menu but you can organise separate kids meals to any restaurant.2 fairly good a la cartes for lunch and beach bar for lighter day time snacks.mini bars inroom filled every day. Don't miss afternoon patisserie

Pools in serenity quiet but kids really enjoyed length of pool and waterpark was open morning and afternoon and we managed a visit most days.enough slides to suit all the kids

All inclusive was excellent with just a few "exclusive " drinks not included.24 hour room service was included and breakfast on our balcony proved very handy


Kids facilities were good.main kids club is at gloria golf.short walk or very easy to arrange lift on a buggy.usual kids activities for this type of club .a few activities extra such as pony trekking and banana boats.kids put on a show on Saturday night which my 4 yr old daughter loved.staff in club all had reasonable English. Further kids club with a charge(Gogi jungle) had brilliant facilities and we did get some complimentary passes on arrival.staff there equally good with kids

Spa was good .treatments priced similarly to other similar 5 star hotels .massages and Turkish bath both excellent

The hotel has a very positive attitude to guests and we did have a feeling they really wanted to make our stay great(. Some hotels the staff seem to feel their job is to enforce lots of rules) .anything we asked for seemed to be possible(borrowing a buggy for our youngest, daily English newspaper to the room,candles for the hot tub at night.changing the menus to suit ourselves etc)


As others have said beach very stony.pier beautiful. Water sports extra but good selection.no probs finding sunbeds at any of the pools although loungers on pier were claimed very early


Lots of night time entertainment for adults and kids Each night movie (in English) live show live music and usually a party somewhere with fireworks



In summary great hotel/we found it fantastic for kids esp in high season.no probs of any kind with other guests .staff spoke excellent english(no prob understanding our kids,being from Northern Ireland we all speak very quickly!! ) intend to go back next yr

Very very beautiful resort with nice deck and Spa!
They have all you will can want. It's a big resort and it is perfect for relaxation.
One thing bad is the sea because it's a bit dangerous to swimming or do something.

Was a nice experience for me!

This was our family’s first trip to the serenity and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, on our arrival we were sat down in the bar with a drink and then assigned our own meet and greet staff member who took us through the whole check in and familiarisation process then showed us to our room, a fist class service indeed complete with bouquet of flowers.
The food in the buffet was good, the outside barbeque was very good and the 3 ala cart restaurants all excellent.
All of the Turkish wine we had was very palatable too and the cocktail list is very extensive with some devilishly strong but irresistible mixtures on there like the ‘long island iced tea’ which is a must try.
Entertainment was first class which included firework displays at least twice a week and also the water sports down on the beach were very good, although the latter are at extra cost.
Staff in the bars and restaurants were all very efficient and friendly.
Overall a great hotel and we would be happy to go back again.

Things that could have been better were :-

1, Hotel management not enforcing the no reservation of sunbeds with personal items. Some selfish people (mostly Russians) were reserving more than one sunbed bay on the pier during the day and not even using them all afternoon, returning to collect small items like a book or glasses case in the evening having prevented many people from using them, even though the culprits were already sitting out there in other bays on the pier.
We did go and complain about this to reception on our second week as the problem was not evident on the first week as the hotel was not as busy. The management said there was nothing they could do about it and admitted it was easier to deal with the odd complaint about it rather than go and collect peoples belongings and then have 30 people shouting at them in reception. However the lifeguards did clear a bay for us after we had complained that day so what I would say is if you see this happening do the same. This is not a massive issue as there are hundreds of free beds all over the hotel grounds and we did have our own beds as we had a laguna room but it was nice to go and sit in the cooler sea breeze after lunch out on the pier.

2, The pool on the south side of blocks A & B is very salty so if you want a fresh water pool (that is is just slightly salty) you will have to go over to the north side of the hotel adjacent to the pool villas and the north side of block A.
