The Barut Hemera is just perfect, it really does have it all - gorgeous private beach, huge pool, amazing food, great entertainment, really good staff! I have never been to a hotel like this one, it was pure luxury! Food was brilliant at breakfast lunch and dinner - excellent quality and so much choice. Managed get a great seat on the terrace every evening and the service was first class. The beachside restaurant is gogeous for lunch - great to chill with a cold drink,great salad and pasta bar plus the usual pizzas, burgers etc, plus the occasional bbq.

The beach has a pontoon so you can walk out to sea - great for sun bathing and for jumping in! If you go duing summer be sure to wear flip flops as the sand is red hot.

I recommend doind the VIP boat trip through Thompson, pure bliss sunbathing and jumping into the crystal waters.Well worth the money especailly with lunch and all drinks included.

Room Tip: Rooms directly over the main restaurant overlooking the gardens are the best location - close to bea...

Our third time in Turkey, first stay at the Hemera.

Bad points;
Two weeks later, still cant think of any, other than one afternoon I let the bidet go off by mistake. Note to blokes - dont get curious when using the multifunction loo and start to press buttons. It wont end well.

Good points.
Location - own beach access, good quality beach. Its also only a stroll away from Side - definitely worth a visit for the shops and historical aspect. Lovely bars / restaurants with spectacular sea views.
Cleanliness - rooms were spotless, just like the rest of the hotel, including gardens, pool, and food areas.
Staff - fantastic service, thanks guys and gals.
Amenities - plenty to do. The steam room and sauna are included with the All-Inclusive deal. Very worth a visit sooner rather than later. We felt we should have tried it sooner. Heated indoor pool, a games room for kids, with XBoxes (not free), air hockey, pool tables, and the arcade games like the motorway services have (sorry dont know what they are called). Entertainment - the Animation team worked hard and those who joined in had great fun.
Evening Entertainment - we went in April, so wasnt as frequent as it would be in the summer, but there's a big stage by the beach ready for high season.
Food - Well... very very good indeed. Theres always somewhere to grab a tasty snack between main meals, which are super. Ok its a kind of buffet-type affair, other than the show-cooks, but the presentation is great, the variety is very wide, and the food is cooked to perfection. At lunchtimes you can either use the main restaurant or eat at the beach restaurant, ordering off the menu. We didnt try the A La Carte options, as we were so pleased with what we had.
Drinks - got to be worth a mention (it IS all -inclusive, after all...) Cocktail menu, 'champagne', Effes, and shorts galore. Fast service too. In fact we didnt even try all the bars, we were so happy. Do remember to ask for a pint of milk if you want to use the tea and coffee facilities in your room. They will happily give you one.
Extras - massages, facials, whatever happens in spas is there. There's also hotel photographers who takes the most amazing snaps of you - we bought the entire DVD, but be prepared to stand your ground on what you think is a fair price.
Rooms - we had a family room. Plenty of space and the beds were really comfortable. Aircon / safe / TV / minibar / robes / slippers / toiletries all included and good quality. The biggest shower head we have ever seen too! A bit of noise once in a while from next door and the corridors, but not enough to worry about.
Cats!! Lovely natured, wont pester you unless you invite them to by a stroke. If you like cats, remmber to put a bit of dinner in a napkin for treats, especially for the one who lives by reception as he has a poorly leg. (And I'm not a cat-lover!!)
Overall - Excellent holiday. We were a party of two adults with a grown up son and the hotel was only 1/3 full, so in the Summer.. maybe more suitable for families and not couples without young children. The hotel would be ideal for families in the high season as they did offer a very good children club.

Room Tip: 1136 idael because you could use the external stairs to get to the main area.

My friends and I stayed at this property last July for a week. Having worked in Side many years before as a rep and at this hotel, I was looking forward to going back and we were not dissapointed.

Request a room over looking the pool if you can, our room was just by reception and around 12 midnight, the music from some of the bars over the road would wake us for a couple of hours. Dont let this put you off, we are light sleepers.

Restaurants, food great, the patisserie is great to get out of the sun for an ice cream in an air conditioned environment.

Pool areas are very clean, make sure you get up early to get a bed in a nice spot, why on earth do people get up so early just to leave towels on beds they dont use all day?

All in all a very nice hotel to which I would have no hesitation in recommending or returning too. Have a great time, we did.

It is perfect hotel for me.
Beach is nice and relax, delicious restaurant :)
Exellent mini-club! live-music in the evenings and funny entertainment show
Comfortable rooms and very clean territory.
We have only one problem: it was very noisy device (something like water pump) in the room near our room. Day time it wasn't very loud, but on the 3d night the sound was awful. We asked to switch it off or change the room. Staff couldn't help us to move, they asked to pay extra money. But I guess they did something with this device, so we could sleep rest of the holiday quite well.
Return to the hotel with great pleasure, but in another room :)
