Reviewed November 3, 2013

This resort, as it says in other reviews, is quite remote, however, if you like a nice quiet place to relax, this is it. Our villa was lovely, but at the top end of the resort, so quite a trek down to the pools and restaurants every day. Transfer from airport can take up to an hour in a taxi which I would advise but the taxis take a short cut over the mountain roads, and, if like me you are not a good traveller, remember to bring the sick bags from the plane with you. TOP TIP ask the driver to take you the main road way and not the mountain route, we did this on the way back and even though it took a bit longer, 10-15 mins, it was much more smoother.
DOWN SIDE The on site restaurant is expensive and doesn't have a lot of choice for children, chips chips and chips. The on site shop is over priced and doesn't stock a lot of choice.
UP SIDE. the spa is good and you will pay about the same as in England, the pools are lovely, but were very cold (our trip was the last week in October) so we tended to swim in the sea more as it was warmer. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Beds are very hard, but just ask for mattress toppers if they are to uncomfortable for you.
We used the Dolmush to get around and if you like an adventure, its quite easy to do. We travelled to Soke and Didum using the Dolmush and it was quite cheap.
The markets in Akbuk and Didum are good, but if you want cheap, good quality clothing then travel to Soke to the outlet stores. Better quality and the real thing and you will probably only pay a fiver more than the markets. The markets are great for fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and very cheap. Be sure to check your bags before you leave though, as if they are busy you might yourself coming away with someone else's fish, as we did. Would recommend the boat trip to Didum and whilst you are there, get a taxi and visit Appollos Temple, stunning. Best meal we had was a traditional Turkish meal at Romeos in Didum. Be warned, you will be made to dress up and dance a traditional Turkish dance in the street before you eat, fab experience.
Would I go again, yes I would.

Just returned from this resort and have to say I was impressed. It fulfilled all our requirements; good accommodation in a lovely setting (3 bed townhouse with 2 bathrooms, Jacuzzi bath and 3 terraces to choose from and a sea view from the roof terrace.) Beautifully maintained amenities and gardens, super friendly staff and the clubhouse and food were very good. The food was very reasonably priced, the beach and chillout areas were fab and the many pools and gardens around the property were also extremely well appointed. We had a couple of small issues but they were sorted out immediately and the resort manager, Sharon, was attentive and extremely proactive. The spa wasn''t really what is now the norm in the UK; i.e. no steam, no Jacuzzi, no funky showers and no chillout area. This does need to be looked at to deserve the title of a Spa Resort. However, we set out to have a completely chilled holiday and that was exactly what we got!

Room Tip: The townhouses are the best option as they are well away from the clubhouse and they have more garde...

Just arrived home from this resort, having stayed for a week after joining friends who were already there. This resort is about an hour away from Airport via hire car. The resort is nice and the apartments are good. We had 52 Adonis, a 3 bedroomed one. Each bedroom has a bathroom, one has a bath the other 2 had showers. The welcome pack is a nice idea and does help you get started. The many swimming pools are great and jumping off the jetty into the sea is fun. The water slides are good but at this time of year they are not on all day. The entertainments team are fun and Ali G is a great advert for the hotel. The cleaning of the apartments is excellent and on days they don't come, they still pop in and empty bins.
A couple of points to note:
You need a car.
The spa is Ok, but treatments feel rushed and are never the length of time advertised.
The beds are hard and you can ask for a topper, but it is just a thinner version of the mattress.
The price of food and drink and the supermarket are quite a bit higher than in the towns, but the food in the restaurant is lovely. Have the buffet at least one night, at 38 TL it is quite pricey but worth it.

My sister and I joined my parents at Apollonium last Friday and we were very pleased to see that we were staying in such a pleasant resort. Our house was clean, modern and spacious with a lovely view of the sea from our balcony (which had plenty of place to sunbathe). The resort had many swimming pools which meant that often we had the whole area to ourselves. I would imagine it would get very busy in peak time but far from impossible to find a lounger somewhere. My family used the gym several times but lost patience eventually due to the quality of the equipment. Next to the gym is a spa which we also used which was nice.
The resort provided lots of entertainment. During the days they offered days out to nearby places however because we had a car, we went to nearby towns and temples independently. There are also opportunities to play Ping-Pong, Mini golf and chess. During the evenings we spent at the resort there was a night where we played blackjack in one of the bar areas, a quiz night, a 'golden oldies' disco and a singer who came and performed in the main bar.
The staff were all very nice and helpful. Two of the men on reception especially stood out (sorry I didn't catch names, I think one of them was emre?) but they were very kind and attentive. During my stay it was my birthday so we had a meal at the resort. We had a buffet which we all enjoyed - there was lots to choose from. The chefs made me a cake and gave complimentary cocktails which was a very nice touch. My only criticism would be that the waiters take one persons plate away before the whole table has finished. This is not something that we are used to and found it slightly uncomfortable however noticed it was something that is normal in Turkey as other places we visited unfortunately did the same. The other restaurants we visited were Pasa and Covent Garden in Akbuk which is a 15 minute drive from the resort on the waterfront. I would recommend both of those.
It was our first trip to Turkey and we were certainly not disappointed with this resort. It was exactly what we wanted and would definitely recommend it.

We had a family break, the accommodation was good, nice food reasonably priced and the staff are friendly. As a Club La Costa member I was wanting somewhere closer to the UK, but they don't have the same availability these days. This is nearing the end of season there, but all in all it was good. The only negative is that it is a bit remote and so if you want to eat out somewhere else the nearest small town is Akbuk which is about 6 - 8 miles and a bus ride away.

The resort is lovely. The view from the beach is wonderful magnificent. The restaurants, facilities and spas are great. There are many swimming pools in the resort, one is located just at the back of the apartment I stayed in, extremely convenient to go for a dip or just lie around on the sun lounges. Staffs are polite and service is very good.

The apartment is clean and have air-conditioners. Beds are comfortable. The kitchen has all the essential appliances and utensils.

ApoIlonium is quite close to the Milas Airport and there are a few towns nearby. I had a lovely week there and would highly recommend the resort to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday.

Beds / Beds / Beds - We were a little nervous as some of the reviews were less than 100% positive but have to applaud the Resort Manager and his staff for everything else - food good - service great - clean and friendly BUT the beds here at Apollonium and at CLC Kusadasi are shockingly hard. We stayed at Kusadasi last May. We would like to stay another week but our comfy bed at home calls - we have hardly slept at all..

In fact the CLC Reps we have met tell us that over 90% of guests share the same complaint !!!

Come on CLC this is an easy fix just buy the same beds and mattresses you have in Hustyns and we'll be back every year. In fact we're at Hustyns in November!
