We stayed at the Alba Queen Hotel for 10 nights from the 12th-22nd October 2009. Our whole stay was outstanding. The hotel has very very high standards of cleanliness, wherever we walked we saw people with buckets and mops, even on the beach.
The food in the restaurant was very good, with huge choice. We found we were better to go to dinner after 8pm after the 7pm rush had died off a bit, the food seemed to be constantly being refreshed so going later was no problem. The pool and beach bars serve food all day, which is a refreshing change from the main restaurant.
The spa, turkish bath and massages were truly wonderful. Anyone that goes to Turkey should have a turkish bath in their first 48hrs, it certainly prolongs one's tan.
The swimming pool is massive and very refreshing. They do play music around the pool but the daily times seemed to vary. We had a room with a view of the pool and the music was no problem for us. However if you like peace I'd ask for a room on the opposite side of the hotel, however be warned as the 'iman calls for prayer' 4 times a day from the local mosque, which is almost opposite the hotel. Our friend stayed on this side of the hotel but he didn't have a problem with it. The animation team work very hard and make a huge effort to entertain guests and they do it very successfully. The evening entertainment was 'tongue in cheek' and quite light hearted. The beach area is enormous with loads of sunbeds. We had absolutely no problems getting sunbeds on the beach or by the pool, but it was the end of the season and still 30 degrees.
The dolmus bus bus to Side and Manavgat stops right outside the hotel and is about a 15minute journey away. The dolmus is great fun and you see all sorts getting on and off.
There are three Alba hotels in Colakli. The Resort is aimed at Families with young children, the Queen is aimed at mid range children and the Royal has no children. From the people we spoke to all three hotels are of very high standards of service and cleanliness, all with an excellent choice of food and restaurants.
