On arrival we were pleasantly surprised by our room, which was more like a junior suite with a separate sitting room with comfy sofa and chair. The bed was extremely comfortable and very large with a choice of 'pillow menu' there were 6 large pillows on the bed and a further two in the cupboard. We overlooked the mountain, which was breathtaking. Our balcony was very small with one chair and a table but as it was January we didn't want to sit out anyway. We were unfortunate that our room also overlooked the hotel next door which was being built and as it had to be finished by March the workmen were working day and night!! However, the staff offered to move us on several occasions but it was our choice to stay put as we became used to the background noise.
The food here was delicious and very varied, with typical Turkish dishes, along with roast chicken, poached salmon and various other grilled meats. The salads were fantastic and lots of mediterranean starter dishes, such as calamares and mussels. The desserts were fabulous.
The Lotus Restaurant carries a 10 Euro per head charge, this is an eastern restaurant and the food was fabulous, we had the most delicious sushi to start with and all that followed was very nicely cooked and presented. You were also served with organic wine from their own vineyards.
The entertainment was quite poor, however it is the very low season and the animation team tried their best without being annoying to get people to join in the various activities.
My husband and I were with friends at this hotel and we all thoroughly enjoyed it, and we would go back. There were a couple of things that could be improved i.e. in the public areas in the evening it was quite chilly, I did ask for the heating to be turned up which it was, but just slightly. Also the cats at the hotel were allowed inside and on occasion we saw at least one in the buffet restaurant and another regularly sleeping on the chairs in the large bar area. Not so good if you aren't keen on cats. However these cats are all very well cared for and are up to date with innoculations etc., there are also notices around asking that guests not to feed them unless they have dried cat food only for them - unfortunately this wasn't always adhered to!!!!
The grounds at this hotel are absolutely stunning and it is just like taking a stroll in a park, lots of trees, as it is built in a forest, but huge grassy areas too. There is a heated outside pool which many guests enjoyed and apparently in the summer this is the 'Adults Only' pool. There is another outside pool, much bigger, but at the moment it is empty, there is also a heated indoor pool too.
Every member of staff we met were absolutely charming and could not do enough for us, and a special thanks to Erdal Tunc, Ali Gulip and the Navigator.
If you want to go out from the hotel there is a very efficient bus service (dolmus) right outside the hotel, you can go to Goynuk or Kemer in one direction and Antalya in the opposite direction where there are shops, and markets to explore.
We had a marvellous week with lots of laughter and complete relaxation here and would recommend this beautiful hotel.
