“Loved it!”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Having never been to Turkey before, we went with an open mind. We were not disappointed. I picked the hotel over the country/location of our holiday based on all the fantastic reviews I’d read. I have stayed in many “5 star” hotels worldwide, but this truly was a 5 star. We are a young couple and visited at the beginning of May. The gardens are immaculately kept and the huge hotel lobby and restaurant are luxurious and clean. The pool is vast, a little cold in May as it is unheated but I guess perfect for the summer months. There were another couple of smaller pools on the resort too. There were plenty of sun loungers which were so comfortable and always covered with clean towel mattresses. There were always plenty of empty ones but not sure if this was due to the time of the year.
We unfortunately had a couple of days of torrential rain but were able to swim in the small outdoor heated pool, and we made use of the indoor pool which didn’t get overcrowded considering the weather conditions. There is an adjoining spa with massages but at 70 Euros, we felt they were overpriced. You can hire cars from reception which we didn’t know about until leaving, not sure of the price. There seemed to be water sports on the beach, and water slides in one of the pools, but I am pregnant so did not take advantage of them.
The staff were attentive, they couldn’t do enough for you, but I will mention that their English is limited. Maybe I am naive and just assumed that everyone in the tourist industry in Europe speaks English! My boyfriend is gluten intolereant and we were given a card to show in the restaurants so they could accommodate for his diet. We actually didn’t use it as we had the buffet for every meal so he knew what he could and couldn’t eat. We thought we would use the A La Carte restaurants (10 Euros per person per visit) as buffets can get a bit ‘samey’, but we didn’t – there was no need to, the food was outstanding, it was an excellent standard so much variety, almost too much to choose from, I needed a bigger stomach! They did all kinds of meat daily – beef, chicken, duck, turkey, fish, seafood, loads of veg and salads and plenty of pasta, rice, chips, pizza and fresh bread to choose from. As well as the buffet, they cooked food on the BBQ outside every evening. The breakfasts were also very good – cereal, hot breakfasts and lots of fresh fruit. At lunchtime we ate at the buffet mostly but also at La Turca, which is A La Carte in the evenings, free at lunchtime. It’s a poolside restaurant which was lovely, but again, a language barrier with the staff! There are fridges dotted around the pool full of cans and bottles of soft drinks and water which was so useful, and we loved the 4pm snacks on the walk down to the beach (crepes, burgers, hot dogs). Remember there is no pork/bacon here, Turkey is a Muslim country.
The bedrooms were luxurious, we had a huge bed and the room was vast and bathroom immaculate and a lovely big balcony. We were in the 3rd floor of pod 4 with a garden view. We could see the derelict hotel next door to the Calista Resort but this didn’t bother us. On the other side of the resort, a new hotel is being built, the construction was fairly noisy if we walked past it but not sure if you could hear it from the rooms there.
The resort I would say was about 95% Russians. We met one other British couple, there were a couple more, but few and far between. We were hoping that there weren’t too many screaming children as I had read it is a good resort for kids. There were quite a few children around, but all very well behaved as I think the kids entertainment seemed good.
We are cat fans and loved that the hotel had 5 or 6 residential cats. My only concern was that
they always seemed hungry and not in the best condition. Upon visiting their ‘cat house’ on the outskirts of the resort, I didn’t feel that they had enough fresh food and water, it looked old and scarce. They were never seen eating there, only loitering around guests waiting for scraps of food.
The beach was lovely – clean and plenty of sun beds. There were also giant cushions on the grass area which were perfect if you don’t want to be on the sand. There was a bar on the pier with drinks flowing and ice creams and drinks at the beach bar.
We didn’t see any of the evening entertainment as it was a bit late for us – it didn’t start until 10pm and we liked to be in bed early to make the most of the sun! We could hear it from our room though, not that it bothered us. We went to an indoor ‘concert’ one evening, a Russian singer, a bit like being at a Eurovision song contest! There was occasionally a live singer/band by the pool bar at around 5pm. It was subtle music and very relaxing.
We would definitely return to this resort.

Dear LadyLia79,

First of all, we would like to say thank you for taking the time to write a review about Calista Luxury Resort on Tripadvisor.
Our Cat house is constantly monitored by our Security Guards who feed them with high quality branded cat food to keep them away from the restaurants, as not everyone loves cats roaming around whilst their on holiday.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family back once again, this time with your children playing in the sun with our multi-lingual entertainers in a mini-club that is open from 10:00 – 00:00 7 days a week!

Yours Sincerely,

Customer Relationship Management Dept.
Calista Luxury Resort.

Whilst you were here, did you manage to watch the magnificent sun set over the glistening mediterranean on our pier? Calista Luxury Resort is the only hotel in belek that has a bar on the pier open until midnight – allowing you to have the opportunity to sit back in our ultra modern and comfortable armchairs, drink in hand, reminiscing on an unforgetable day you had.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Calista Luxury Resort.

Stayed at many hotels in belek, gloria serenity maxx royale to name two. Calista beats them all. Pools, service from staff, food quality and amount!
Guest relations and reception outstanding! Grounds superb, always somewhere to get away from the crowd! That said, hotel was only one third of full capacity. It actually needs more marketing in the UK.
When we arrived we did not like the location of our room. We spoke with reception and was offered an alternative room immediately, with a view overlooking the pool.
Most amazing point was when guest reations tracked down a skirt my wife had eft in the beach bar. Incredible attention to detail.
I have one small complaint. The a la carte restaraunts need a rethink?

Room Tip: rooms on the south side are quieter. Steer clear of rooms on the north side of block 3

Dear Paul011076,

As you had a room overlooking our pools, did you notice the difference between our pools and other pools in hotels that you have stayed before? We have a very unique filter system – IONS. The water in the pool has 70% LESS chlorine than standard pools. This is because the water in the pools are constantly flushed through electrodes, killing all bacteria instantly, leaving the skin soft and eyes not sore at all, plus there is no chlorine smell as you walk around any of the pools.

We thoroughly look forward to welcoming you back to Calista Luxury Resort

Yours Sincerely,

Firstly can I say my wife and I have stayed in most of the Hotels in the Belek area and beyond in Turkey and this the Calista is on par with all of the very best hotels we have stayed in, we stopped in room 5111 this room has a great view large balcony , inside you have a fantastic room with all you will need on your holiday, the Hotel staff cant be more helpful and a special mention for Mr Denis, if you have any questions or concerns contact him and he will sort it straight away, Denis and his team cant be more helpful.
The hotels food is of a very high standard and the drinks from a glass of coke to a pint of carling larger was all branded drinks, I could go on and on all day telling you about the Calista, but if you want Luxury , a relaxing holiday, in a fantastic hotel please just book the Calista I will be going back again very soon.

Room Tip: 5111 very big and a great view.

This is our 4th visit to the Calista Luxury Resort with out special friends . The Calista has excelled again . This year there is a lovely ice cream parlour and there is also a booth which serves beautiful chopped fruit all day. The hotel is always trying to improve and add to what to me, is already a fantastic hotel. The staff are always working hard to make sure the grounds and gardens are beautifully kept and everywhere is do clean. The entertainment staff are excellent and my husband definitely loved the new edition of the shooting range. We are 2 couples holidaying without children, but it is an ideal place for families because there is so much for children to do and the staff work hats to entertain them . Tonight is put lady evening at the hotel and we are eating at one of the A La Carte restaurants . We have tended to eat at a few of the A La Carte restaurants and have also really enjoyed the barbecue .
Another great stay at the Calista and thank you to all the staff for making it a great holiday.

Staff 100%, cleanliness 100%, Food and Beverage 100%. Facilities 100%. Suat in the restaurant is an absolute gentleman who made us feel very welcome every time we passed by.

Only stayed for 5 days but will be rebooking this resort for a lot longer! I took my wife on hooneymoon to this beautiful place. They could not have done any more for us, to make the whole stay perfect. The room was very clean, the food was great and the staff were very attentive.

Room Tip: If you would like a quiet holiday ask to have a room in the main building, a lot of the night life...
