Barut Acanthus & Cennet
Ranked #2 of 229 Hotels in Side
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Just returned from 7 days at this wonderful Hotel. Have visited Turkey on two previous occasions staying at the Hilton in Sarigerme and the Aqua at Icmeler. Both excellent hotels, which I would recommend to anyone, however the Acanthus just has the extra wow factor. Smaller than the Hilton but larger than the Aqua and on a beautiful coast line with a 4km long promenade separating beach from Hotel.
The whole place is immaculate with constant tidying up and cleaning. The rooms are as good as any we have stayed in with excellent décor.
Choice of food in the buffet restaurant is brilliant and the three ala carte restaurants are all first class.(At no extra charge).
The pool is in constant sunlight from early morning till late afternoon- not shaded from the buildings as in some hotels, with constant tidying up of sunbeds and clearance of rubbish.
Finally, the staff. Everyone, without exception, was pleasant, cheerful and polite and a credit to the Hotel.
Brilliant hotel in every respect, however I do not think this is particularly the ideal place for children, other than very young children, as they would find very little to do other than the sea and beach.
We rarely re-visit hotels, but we are already thinking of returning here next year.

Stayed: September 2017

We have just returned from a 1 week stay in a penthouse suite, this is an amazing hotel whether in an upgraded room or standard. the attention to detail is fantastic, food wonderful, whether the buffet or one of the 3 a la carte restaurants, room quality first class, mini bar in room had a selection of miniature spirits, beers, wine and soft drinks. bar service excellent. entertainment, a little bit up and down but professional shows every evening, its about as good as you're going to get in Turkey.
lovely clean pool, beautiful gardens and private beach.
Snack bar produced lovely food, bar staff pleasant and helpful.
Side old town is only a 25 minute walk or £5 taxi ride, wander amongst the ruins have a drink in a bar or a nice meal, just outside the hotel is the promenade, lovely to walk along on an evening.
This hotel is nearly perfect and worth every one of its 5 stars. I only have one minor niggle and this is the sun loungers, hard and uncomfortable to say the least, for a hotel of this quality I expect a bit of luxury, please consider supplying a padded mattress.

Just returned from this fabulous hotel we spent 2 weeks in the penthouse suit which was amazing and had everything , the hotel grounds are beautiful and very well maintained and you are a stone throw away from their private beach , the food was fantastic there was something for everyone with lots to choose from my favourite meal time was breakfast with all there lovely pastries, your staff are a credit to you they were all very friendly and always done there best to please you , the only recommendation I would give you is that it would be nice to have a rattan sofa in balcony somewhere comfortable to just sit and read and watch the world go by , the balcony in penthouse is such a big space I think it would benefit it a great deal . I would like to thank Zehra from housekeeping who done a marvellous job keeping our room clean , and the restaurant manager for our friendly chats each day and also guest relations for all there help . I would highly recommend this wonderful hotel for a quiet relaxing holiday and I cannot wait to come back next year .

I have been very lucky to Holiday at least once a year for the majority of my 40 odd years... I must say this up there with any of my previous best ( The Bellagio Las Vegas being my No 1) This place ticks so many boxes.. The Hotel itself is Modern well maintained,with an excellent beach front location.
Rooms spacious modern ultra clean quality fixtures & fittings, powerful walk in shower... Free safety deposit box along with free powerful WiFi throughout the entire hotel and it's ground's are a nice touch.
Food & Drink... The quality and quantity of the food is very impressive along with the 3 free Al a carte restaurants they really have got you covered..!!!
Plenty of premium brands are included in the drinks offer and their cocktail menu would not be out of place at any 5*.Super Hotel anywhere in the World.
Finally the STAFF are the real Jewel in the crown here they are tireless in there efforts to please and pamper Guests...
I am alas on my last full day here in 1319 but I am sure I will be back to this Wonderful Hotel.
