Arrived for a week's stay from 18/04/12 - 25/04/12 to a tropical storm, got soaked getting from terminal to coach for transfer (oh no what have we come to with the weather!)
Next morning weather cleared away and we had sunshine every day (couldn't believe it)
Check in was smooth and efficient, allocated our room over the front of the hotel, fantastic views of Ozdere. Room very spacious as there were 3 of us, massive bed and bed setee. Beautiful bathroom and shower loads of room, observation window from bedroom to shower was a giggle but very classy and modern all through.
Restaurant could not fault, plently of choice for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, salads were to die for, honeycomb was to be believed for breakfast as well as pancakes and omelettes made to order. Local organic food sourced and grown by the hotel. One evening was seafood night and the tuna carcus was hung behind the grill to show us what we were eating (unbelievable!!!)
Deserts were out of this world and were eaten regularly by one particular member of our party (you know who you are!)
Piano Bar served drinks 24 hours, all international brands, cocktails made to order. Head bar man Martin (don't mention the war) was a star, couldn't do enough for you and was such a laugh as was his wife Emma (Guest Relations) who was always on hand to help out. Staff at the bar - Bircan, Hasam, Hatice, and all the other wonderful waiters (sorry if we have forgot your names) were amazing, so friendly and polite - well done! We had such memorable evenings with you all.
Not many activities took place - there was an animation team on hand (they were French) however they were around and mainly with the children in the day - but we played boules everyday as a family along with table tennis, pool and the wii.
The indoor pool, sauna and steam room were brilliant, however we never tried a turkish bath and wish we had. The spa was out of this world and you must take a tour around it as it is really something else (this was all that you had to pay extra for). The outdoor pool is a beautiful view around the hotel and looks amazing at night when all lit up. All of the hotel surroundings are fantastic.
The snack bar (Meandros) was very nice especially for a drink in the sun and a light snack, the Manager there was a lovely man (Jason Statham lookalike) and like the rest of the management around the hotel they couldn't do enough for you. One manager even had time to play table tennis with our son.
We took English chocolates with us to give to the staff as treats and they really appreciated this. (Little things like this mean a lot to them!)
We met a good crowd of people whilst we were here, including two lovely fellas (John and Joe) from Liverpool and they added to the atmosphere in the hotel, overall a brilliant week was had by us.
This hotel was one of the best we have been to, 5 star luxury with beautiful weather thrown in and we would definetly come here again, perfect week that we didn't want to come to an end. We were touched when the waiters, staff and management helped with our cases and then lined the route out to wave us goodbye, what a lovely ending to a lovely holiday!
Our thanks to " The Paloma Pasha" from Jon, Sharon and Earl (Warrington, England).
