Reviewed June 16, 2013

I just came back from 1 week vacation in Grand Efe. The hotel and great - room very clean, big and u can find all stuffs u need. Food - just amazing, dont go there if u are on diet. U will come back with at last 3-5 kilos more. Dont miss wonderful guzlema. The only thing which i didnt like is the beach. Unfortunally they dont have a nice beach - too much stones, the water is not so clean. This is the only problem there but i think they try to fix it. Its great for couples and family with kids. If u wonder where in turkey to go, i vote for Grand efe with 2 hands

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have a sea view. Dont choose one on 1 - 2 floor.

Just back from a week in Grand Efe - had such a good time! The hotel has been modernised and the bathroom was lovely, walk in posh shower! Everything was clean, the food was plentiful and tasty - definitely couldn't complain at that.
Yes there is loud music by the pools, but I've never been to an all inclusive hotel where there wasn't! There is a terrace lounger part next to the beach that you can barely hear it from anyway.
The staff were very accommodating and I can't fault their enthusiasm or willingness to help.
The beach is a little stoney but the water is clear and lovely...given that it's literally a 2 step walk from the hotel, no grumbles again
All in all, if you're looking for a cheap but decent all inclusive hotel - this one would suit you down to the ground.

Room Tip: Rooms without a pool view would be quieter

We stayed in this hotel in September 2012 for one week and had exactly what we had hoped for. Clean room, beautifully clean sea, a large selection of food including fresh salads and fruit and a very safe environment. Our arrival was delayed so we arrived quite late but we were given sandwiches and bottled water for refreshments. The entertainment was not something we needed but any kind of entertainment in all inclusive resorts is always questionable. The other guests seemed to have enjoyed it. If you want to rest, relax and enjoy good food and swimming, then this is the place to go.

We were in Grand Efe Hotel only week. We are very positive people and love traveling. There were severals plus and minus in the hotel.
Plus:
-location to the Izmir airport, to the beach
-clear sea, nice daybed
-water spot on the hotel beach ( good entertainment )

Minus:
-Monotonous music, very loud, not friendly animators, especially animator DERDA, who use profanity.
-duty dishes
-monotonous food, problem with fish ( not every day and not testy)
-terrible problem with wi-fi. I never so such weak connection

The hotel is 3+, good for kids - pool with micro aqua park and not deep seaside.

We'll have good rest despite the minus. Thanks to all who have been with as!

We loved the Grande Efe, after a long transfer we arrived at 1am to freshly made filled rolls and fruit in our room which showed the standard of the services. The rooms were lovely and clean and the food was fantastic, all fresh and varied. Plenty of choice and we didn't get bored with it at all even after 2 weeks. The anamation team were very friendly and helpful and made our holiday memorible for us, especially Tolgar, he was fab. The younger children had a great time at the kids club and Sasha was wonderful with them. The only negative thing was it was very intimidating for our 16 year old daughter when we were in the resturant as most of the waiters were a bit pervy. Would definetly go back to this resort again. The hotel needs to give consideration to entertainment for bad weather days.

when I was there it was full of romanian and british tourists. it is located just in front of the sea. the food was extremely good. you can enjoy the seaside without any extra fee for sun loungers. if it hasnt been refurbushed recently, the furniture and hotel was quite old looking.

the annoying thing for the hotel was this: you can not eat your desert in cafe area where there is available tea! you can eat your desert only in the restaurant where there is no tea that time. but I like eating my desert with a cup of tea. this seemed annoyingly funny to me.

There were lots of things to love in Grand Efe Hotel Club !

But I will start with the worst first - cause I guess that's why we are looking on trip advisors, mainly :

large insects present (very large musquitos and bees)
bad music
animation/show not funny at all
things done "by the book", with no enthusiasm (even the games and mini-disco)
vegetables are not cleaned before joined into salads
small pools
cold water most of the day
due to the shadow
stones in the seaside - easy to be hurt
bad signal for Vodafone TR

Good things :

all kinds of people as turists
nice and diligent room maid
good prices
good food (not always clean, but good)
u may use Vodafone GR (better prices)
free Internet Wifi - not so fast, but enough and free
kids playground and mini-club (nice "blonde" animators/educators)
2 free snack/pizza hours included
all-day-long free bar

So, if they made it short and simple (I am refering to their work and enthusiasm), you should - too - keep it short and simple !
