Me and my friend chose the Alba Queen for a weeks holiday, as we needed some sun and relaxation. The hotel looked attractive and we certainly were not disappointed when we got there. The hotel was nice and clean and the staff were helpful.
The pool was lovely, but did get quite crowded and unless you were there very early on it was hard to get a decent spot... We found the breakfast very nice, and the food in the pool bar was good as well... there were some 'unusual' looking items on the menu some evenings but we just stuck to what we knew and were fine. I really enjoyed the a la carte restaurants and they seemed to have quite a good selection to chose from.
The hotel was a good distance from the beach which seemed clean and had a good number of loungers. Definitely a more relaxing area than the pool where there did seem to be a bit of a tendency for the staff to pester you into joining in the activities.
Me and my friend would definitely recommend the spa in the hotel, we went for a proper turkish bath and it was so relaxing and very professional.
The evening entertainment was more aimed at families and therefore wasn't really to my taste but i can see that people would enjoy it. The area surrounding the hotel didn't really have much to offer but we did take a trip into Side and the harbor which was beautiful and well worth a trip. We had a bit of trouble due to being 2 women alone and were accosted on several occasions by men that wouldn't take no for an answer, and although we were told by our travel rep to ALWAYS barter the price on items we found a lot of the people in the town were offended by this.
I would recommend that if you are looking for a holiday where you spend the majority of time in the hotel then this is a good place to go, but if you are looking for places to explore and especially for nights out then this is not really the place for you.
