We stayed at the Hemera from 27th July till 10th August and have to say it was the best holiday we have been on, there was myself, my husband and four daughters aged 14, 12, 5, 3, we loved it so much we have booked again for next year.
The first week there was a heat wave with temps hitting 45 degrees. The staff at the hotel are really friendly and helpful. The Animation team were fantastic and worked so hard to make sure everyone is happy, my children loved them all and were sad to say goodbye, some even came to reception to say bye before we left, hope to see them all next year.
They organised the daytime activities: Archery, darts, shooting, pool games, yoga, dancing, beach games, pool games and lots more which were fun but there was ...
no pressure to join in if you didn’t want to, they also ran the kids club which was very good, after working hard all day they also did evening entertainment and put good shows on every night which we all enjoyed, well done to all of you.Read More
The hotel is kept immaculately clean. The rooms are large, cool, and comfortable. Beds are large and changed daily and there are complimentary toiletries in the bathroom. There is air conditioning, telephone, safe, and tea and coffee. The bathrooms are lovely and large, with huge mirrors, hair dryers and shaver socket. The mini bar is restocked daily with water, fruit juices, coke and tonic water at no extra charge. The hotel is 24 hr all inclusive and they are happy for you to take drinks to your room.
There are shops in the hotel with friendly staff, the lady in the clothes shop taught my daughter some Turkish. Prices are in Euros but they do take lira and sterling. There are shops across the road but if you don’t want to leave the hotel then everything is there for you. Another nice thing is you don’t have to where a wristband, they give you ID cards but we didn’t need to show them once.
There was always a good choice of food at breakfast and they serve you with tea/coffee at your table. Lunch can be either taken in the main restaurant or at the snack bar near the beach and there was always a good choice. Evening meals are taken in the main restaurant where there is also a good choice and drinks are served to you at your table. The patisserie is open 10am till 6pm where you can get ice creams, cakes, biscuits, coffee and tea and is air conditioned so nice to get out of the heat sometimes. There was also afternoon coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cakes and pancakes served at the snack bar about 3pm.
There was never a problem getting sunbeds but if you want to be round the main pool then you have to be up early but we never got out before 10am and always found some even if it was on the grass. The pools were great and we spent most of the day in them, the slides are good fun for the kids. The beach and the sea were really nice and we went there most afternoons, there were always sunbeds available and the staff regularly bring fresh water melon round for guests and the bar isn’t far away either but there is water available on the beach too. You are given pool cards on arrival and can get fresh big towels every day.
There is a promenade that goes all the way to side but we just walked along for 20 mins in the evening with the pushchairs when the young ones were tired but it was very nice.
All in all a fantastic holiday and can’t wait to get back there next year!!
