Holiday Village Turkey Hotel Reviews

"Great for Families"
Ginny stayed at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel in September 2012
After all the bad reviews I have heard about the holiday villages I went in expecting the worse but was pleasantly surprised. I had booked a kids den and was quite surprised at the size of the rooms. The room was very clean and the maid was in to clean daily. The only downfall was they expected £200 deposit for the PlayStation and a fee for the games.

They had a good choice of food in the restaurant and there was always something you could eat, Although my son did get fed up with chips every day. There was a lot going on in the resort and my children where never bored. The kids clubs were great.

The hotel beach is OK but be careful with young children as 3ft in the beach drops away. If you are wanting a ...
great beach it is well worth making the journey into Sarigerme village, and go to the local beach. The sand is soft and the water is shallow and great for children.

"Lots to do for families"
Zoe Campbell visited the Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme in August 2012
We really enjoyed this holiday, the best thing about it are the kids clubs and activities on offer for families. The food is ok, always something to eat but by no means gourmet! The drinks let the place down, i couldnt stomach the wine at all.
The beach isnt great but there for a paddle if you want one. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. The waterslides and play area are great so there really is something for everyone. We would return because if the kids are happy then so are we.

"We would stay here again"
Briggs stayed at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme, Turkey in July 2011
This is the fourth time that we have visited this hotel, previous visits included the time around the BBC Watchdog issue. We have never had a complaint about the hotel and this year was no exception.

The staff are very friendly and work very hard, a please and thank you goes a long way with them. The rooms are kept clean with frequent linen and towel changes. There is plenty of choice for the food which is to a very good standard. The prices for the shops on site are expensive, they do have you by the barrel there, and however a short ride into the village and prices are much cheaper.

There are lots of activities during the day to get involved in if you want to with lots of activities for children and there are quiet areas for those ...
who want it.

I do have one or two complaints, the evening entertainment this year was not that good and regarding the food it is a pity that parents stop their children from handling food and use the utensils provided instead also there are a number of stray cats around the site with warning notices not to touch them or feed them, yet I saw numerous parents allowing their children to do so even using cups and dishes from the restaurants, this is how the illnesses highlighted in watchdog are spread and not by poor standards on the part of the hotel.

In spite of these issues a thoroughly enjoyable two weeks and I would go again.

"Hotel gets better and better!"
Lorraine stayed at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme, Turkey in September 2010
This is the second time myself and my family have visited this holiday village and love it!
The staff are very friendly and work very hard keeping the whole place spotless. The location is great too with the beach at the end of the resort. I know the town of Sarigerme not big or exciting but the place seems to be up and coming as it looks like there is planning for more building work to go ahead.

Food is excellent and lots of great choices. Didn't have the same meal twice!

Kids loved entertainment not only in the club and the staff of I 5 Live in the amphitheatre were excellent too keeping all my kids dancing the night away.
I love this hotel as it just makes our holiday, fun, exciting and gives you nothing to worry about ...
throughout your stay.

Defiantly be back again as it just gets better and better.

Courtney stayed at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel in July 2010
I'm 14 years old and stayed in tropical side with my mum dad and little brother. And I would definitely visit again! Just maybe with some friends. Usually I'm really picky with my food but they had such a huge amount to choose from!

My favourite part of the holiday has to be the entertainment! The holiday reps were great, always putting you in a great mood. The night time entertainment at 9:30pm is when they put great acts on stage (i5live) they have comedians, singers, dancers...

The comedians are great for the younger ones too. I would completely recommend this holiday to everyone! It's so clean and I didn't have any problems there! One day I'd love to be a holiday rep in turkey: D

farrell had a holiday at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme, Turkey in May 2010
Food very good. No sausages or bacon but plenty of other things to eat on a morning. Food at outside bar very good. Inside, the restaurant buffet is very busy lots of people running about. Could do with all the food being in one area instead of being spread out in different areas of the room. Hotel very clean. The all inclusive drinks weren\'t that good. Location very good. Right beside the beach. The hotel staff were ok, most could not understand a word we were saying, so we gave up asking for things. Trying to get the right drinks was pure luck. I asked for vodka and bitter lemon and got a vodka and slice of lemon. Tea and coffee available all day. Evening entertainment not that great. Hotel ...
is very clean, but the pool was often closed due to someone doing their business in it. Not a great hotel for couples as the majority of people are with small children, so it very noisy and hectic.

Emma stayed at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme in May 2010
I stayed on the palace side of the holiday village and the radio during the day was excellent and the entertainment of a night was very funny and a lot of fun. the dances the presenters did was a lot of fun as they learnt the dances to the audience and always got me up on the dancefloor dancing. the shops around the resort was also good for sweets, clothes, drinks and jewellery too. the food there is amazing and a definite variety and the desert were exquisite. i would definitely recomend this resort for parents with children all ages and even families without children as the resort has adult only places eg. bars, pool etc. i stayed at this resort with my family for two weeks and i\'ll thell you it wasn\'t long enough and i did water spoarts ...
and when on trips that were easy to book with the holiday trip advisors. the staff were also amazing as thney left us a gift on our beds before we left to say goodbye i thought that was very thoughtful.

Jacko had a holiday at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme, Turkey in September 2009
this was the 2nd time we have been to the Holiday village, last time being in 2006. i loved it then and can honestly say that it was just as good this time.
There were 14 of us in total , 8 of whom had not been before but we would all definately go again. we had 3 teenagers with us who had a great time, there is always plenty going on to keep them entertained.

The Staff were great, from the cleaners and bar staff who do a fantastic job to the Reps who were great fun.

we saw watchdog wandering about but didnt speak to them, i reckon any health issues are probably down to poor hygene by certain guests, a lot of people simply didnt use the hand wash which is at the enterence to ...
all the restaurants even though they are clearly marked. i saw people picking food up with there hands and then putting it back!! ( usually kids but some adults too!!) as i say there were 14 of us none were ill and none of us had a bad meal as there was so much choice,

in short a great place, Beautifull suroundings, spotlessly clean and we will deinately go again.

Dianne Enefer stayed at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme in August 2009
Read the reviews and in all honesty wondered if we\'d made a terrible mistake! But what a very pleasant surprise we had. The hotel & grounds are immaculate. The food is the best we have ever had on an all inclusive holiday. There are 3 themed restaurants which provide a 1st class service and the food delicious, especially the Asian one. The beach is beautiful (and the sunbeds are free)!! Entertainment hit & miss - there was a comedian on one night which was good (although he had to mind his p\'s & q\'s because there were still youmg children there). Also the Turkish dancing was very entertaining. Apart from that it was a bit dire for the adults, but there were lots of English channels on the TV to watch if you were a bit ...
bored! No DVD player though.
Weather was brill - we travelled early September and the temperature was about 32-34 degrees.
As the flights are always late at night and you need to be out of your rooms by 10.30 I would recommmend the trip that First Choice have. You travel by coach for about 1/2 hour then get on a boat to the lake at Dalaman where they let you have a swim in the beautiful waters. Back on the boat for some sightseeing then onto the Mud Baths which are great. They take you to dinner which is included, then to the beach. Back to the town to the hotel room which you have until you are picked up by the coach - dinner is also provided. All this for

Leanne had a holiday at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme, Turkey in August 2009
Very pleased with the standard of accommodation, we were in a Jacuzzi Suite in the Holiday Village Turkey - Tropical side, and found the room and all the resort to be very clean and tidy. There were members of staff constantly picking up litter and tidying plates and cups away. Didn\'t see much of the entertainment as our son was poorly and so we spent almost every evening in the room. The food was varied and plenty, however our son picked up Salmonella from somewhere. We had a lovely first day in the resort but by tea time on our second day our 3 year old son had a very high temperature and stomach pains, when we took him to the doctor at the hotel we were told it was a throat infection and conjunctivitus. ...
The next morning the diarrhoea started and the doctors took a stool sample but their tests surprisingly came back negative for salmonella and all other infections, however this was confirmed by our GP on our return home.

Kerry Freeman visited the Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme, Turkey in August 2009
We stayed on the Palace side and thought it was a really nice, clean hotel.
The food was nice and was always a great selection.
Unfortunately on day 6 of our 11 night holiday we had to get the doctor for my husband as he had a nasty ear infection, was given antibiotics that didnt do any good, the doctor came back the following day as he was still in so much pain, he could not enjoy himself for the rest of the holiday and had to see our own GP back in UK.
My 3 year old son had severe diarrhea for 6 days, 3 in Turkey and continued when we got home, he spent 2 days in bed while on holiday complaining on stomach cramps and had a high temperature. The flight home was a nightmare he continuously had to go ...
to the toilet.
Upon returning to UK I took him to our GP, a sample was collected and Salmonella food poisoning was confirmed.
My oldest son also had sickness and diarrhea for 2 days.
After returning home within 3 days I myself went down with stomach cramps and diarrhea.
Will certainly not be returning to the Holiday Village Turkey.

nicholas tucker stayed at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel in August 2009
Beautiful place beautiful hotel staff and management cannot do enough to keep the hotel clean and tidy and luckely first choice dont insist on there hotels having european fire saftey standards
so when a fire broke out in our hotel bedroom the managment did not have to bother the local firebrigade, actuate an audioble fire alarm nor evacuate the wing unfortunatly the Hilton hotel staff next door saw the smoke and took it apon themselves to call the brigade.
luckely we only lost all of our belongings and frightend the hell out of the kids
not to worry we got a room with a jakuzzi and

Jackie had a holiday at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme, Turkey in July 2009
I have to say this is one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff were cleaning all day, No litter was left, despite the odd very lazy person leaving bottles and bags around. The staff could not have been more helpful. The rooms were unusual in the Tropical side a family room consisted of just one room with 4 beds in, we did not accept this as we had teenagers with us, The staff moved us to the Palace side, where at least we got a partition in the room. Air con was ok but noisy at night. The hair dryer was nothing short of usless. The food was normally a good choice on hand. This resort was good for families with children upto about 13/14, nothing much for older children and adults, the town was ...
abit more entertaining, and cheaper for drinks. The location is too far from anything much to do. This resort is all on the level with good lifts, so if you have mobility problems it is good and accessable.Unfortunatley to finish I have to say we did fall foul to the food poisioning, my husband was very i\'ll, and I feel we should have been informed of the problem by the reps, so be careful.

Sue Fowler visited the Holiday Village Turkey Hotel in June 2009
We had been one of the unfortunate first visitors when the Village had opened -unfinished - and bused out after 6 hours. I was not keen to return but my 14
year old daughter wanted to go back. After a mix up with our holiday booking and little choice I agreed - dreading it! My eldest daughter, 22, also came. We loved it! The staff were lovely always friendly and helpful. We had a Jacuzzi suite which was wonderful,so big. This has to be the cleanest hotel I have ever visited,and I have been to quite a few! The food was excellent - and if you couldn\'t find something you liked you must be the fussiest eater ever and should stay at home! Really liked the fact that this was a hotel for the Brits - ...
no Russians/Germans. The entertainment was good for younger families and they flew in John Clegg when we there- really funny. They fly in a top act each week. The pools were fantastic and smaller pools scattered around the accommodation if you wanted to be quieter. Activities all day but you were not pressured to join in. Enjoyed it against all my preconceived ideas.

Debbie visited the Holiday Village Turkey Hotel in June 2009
Hotel is absolutely spotless!
Food was very good with a choice for everyone.
Location wasn\'t good if you want a young and lively holiday. You can get a taxi into Sarigerme for 10 lira but it\'s only 1 street with shops!

Hotel staff were on the ball at cleaning but not good at all at smiling!!

Entertainment team try very hard.

Would go back if i needed a quet break.

Sal had a holiday at Holiday Village Turkey Hotel, Sarigerme, Turkey in June 2009
food was lovely always something different youngest child got fed up of chicken nuggets and chips but then he won\'t try anything different. cleaniness of hotel is superb always people cleaning around pool.
gardens lovely. all staff were found to be very friendly and helpful if needed
entertainment staff worked hard to keep all entertained but my children wouldn\'t join in anything no pressure though to join in
can\'t comment on evening entainment as didn\'t watch any of it
did hear of a few people who had been to hospital with severe sickness and diarrhoea they blamed it on the food but i\'m sure they\'re would of been more people ill if it had of been the food. pool areas kept clean but some people are disgusting as we saw 1 women washing out a nappy in the pool and hanging it ...
up to dry! pool was closed for 24 hrs twice as people had had accidents !! wouldn\'t visit again as was too busy for us and too far from anywhere elsedon not buy anything in the shops very expensive

Bev visited the Holiday Village Turkey Hotel in June 2009
The hotel is lovely, very clean and well maintained. We stayed on the Palace side and much preferred it to the Tropical side which we visited a couple of times. I would recommend requesting the Palace side if you can - going by what other people said.
The air con in the rooms is not brilliant and I would recommend a fan and also asking for a second key card which means you can put the air con on for when you get back in the room at night as it doesn\'t stay cool for long.
The mosquitos are a pain and I strongly recommend by a good spray in the UK as they are expensive over there - even in the pharmacy.
take your own hairdryer if you need to get a decent style as the one in the room ...
is very meak!
The hotel staff are all lovely and the First Choice team are great - alex is hilarious. I wouldn\'t book my trips through First Choice as I think Sarigerme Tours in the village are excellent and half the price - say hi to them if you go from the man with arm tattoo!
Evening entertainment is a bit dire - even though our kids were only 20 months, 5 and 8 years old.
DO NOT buy stuff the shop at the hotel as it is extremly over priced. we ran out of sun lotion for the kids and paid 45 turkish lira for a bottle of nivea kids sun - about 20 quid, which over here would have cost about half the price. DO take your own swim nappies, in the hotel shop they were about 30 lira and in the town they were 18 lira which is expensive, normal nappies too are expensive.
People did spend a lot of time using the pools as toilets and they were closed a lot because of accidents and when they close them they do close them for 24 hours. If you want a decent sunbed then you do need to get up early but you have to stay with them otherwise your towels will be removed - be warned !
Food is pretty good, there is a family buffet in the upstairs restaurant opposite reception which does goods bits for the kids and the free ice cream is in the main restaurant at lunch time but you do have to queue. If you want to buy ice creams then don\'t buy them from the stands by the pool as they charge 5 lira each, walk to the shop that sells the inflatables as his are only 1 lira for the exact same ice cream, oh and we paid 10 lira (about
