The food was good, even for a finicky person like myself. They had a good range of cuisine. Some nights were themed to different countries food. Hubby really enjoyed the German night, as I did with the gyros type meat. Only downside was the wait for the chef to carve the meat, but they will only cut it when it is cooked properly so it wasn't a problem.
Location was quite quiet but that's what we wanted, one of the last drop off's on airport transfer (approx 45 mins). Only a 5 minute walk to the beach. Once at the beach there was a bar and they serve lunch there too. Also bring cold flannels in the afternoon and the treat of the day!
Staff were fab. Always cheerful and smiling. Very helpful.
Entertainment was ok considering it's only a small hotel. There's day time activities if you want to join, then something happening in the evenings. From karaoke to bingo to belly dancers. They could do with more lighting in the pool area to see things a bit better though.
We chose this hotel as it was an escaping holiday - very few kids! There were kids there but they were teens and not too rowdy! It was lovely to be able to float around the pool without getting bombed on.
The TC rep was great. We booked 2 excursions through her-yes we could have booked them cheaper outside the hotel, but with TC you are covered on insurance from the minute you set foot on the bus to when you get back. Also we had spoken to people who had booked outside and they were pretty much dropped off at the site they visited and left to their own devices. We had a guide with us all the time and he was great.
Overall I wouldn't hesitate to go back to Pashas.

The food was very repetitive, and not very hot. The choice at lunchtime was a laugh unless you could eat meatballs for every meal.
The manager didn't want to speak to you unless you were German, in fact we felt like second class citizens.
We have sung the praises of this hotel for the past 8 years, but no more, and we will not return!
The hotel is spotlessly clean and the food is excellent with a differnet theme every night including different table settings and staff costumes for each theme. The food is fairly traditional and you will not find much English food ( eg. bacon, burgers etc) but is superbly cooked and very tasty.
The location of this hotel is brilliant with mountains on one side and the sea on the other. The beach is good but very stoney.
The staff are wonderful, always keen to help and although the entertainment is not great Eniz the entertainment manager does try hard.
I would strongly reccommend this hotel to anyone wanting a very peaceful holiday with brilliant staff.

This was limited to just two factors so, be warned. After all, when you go on vacation, you don't want any part of it spoilt as it can ruin the rest of your stay. We will go back to this hotel willingly at any point in the future, subject to just two items.
1. It will never be with Thomas Cook Travel, who are unfortunately the current sole UK booking agents for this otherwise 5 star experience and capitalising on this hotel's success, to their discredit. (I would not normally enter details of the tour operator involved, but as you will see, as they are unique to this hotel's trade from the UK, they have to feature in context. Let's just say, apart from ONE male member of the cabin crew on the flights each way and the female resort rep at the hotel, the rest of the Cook deal was nigh on non existent. Booking ON LINE was our first mistake. Service? They have never heard of the word and never likely to.
2. The hotel room's personal safes are electronic. Regardless of how careful you are with your selected pin number, these safe's can decide to run their numbers should the battery decide to deplete or be affected and there is no way you will be able to get back into it. Call the reception I hear you say? Try it! You may be lucky. But, when the "manager" is on his day off and cannot be located for 5 hours and nobody else has the authority to open aforesaid steel box, it can be tricky. Especially when you have been restricted to your room by the reception staff, with promises of " he will be with you in less than 2 hours (repeated every hour) and with all your cash, documents, etc etc in the safe, there's not a lot you can do.
Those were the only 2 bad points about the place and only one of them was their own let down. When I say that TC are the UK sole agents, they are, but, beware that this hotel is more frequently handled by several German operators and boy, can you see the effect. If you want to have some prankish fun on YOUR visit, take one of those school dinner bells. Ring it in public area of the hotel or of the super beach club at any hour of the day or night and you will easily and instantly identify a certain foreign element, as they clamber to get up and make haste to be the first into a queue for what might be being offered to them. Trust me,, It's SOOOOO funny! ;-) - Yes, we will go back to this lovely hotel at the drop of a hat, WHEN, they have adopted a UK tour operator that can maintain a level of courteous service, comparable to that they display at most times in the hotel and when they do, you can be assured that a more balanced mix of nationalities will vacation there.
If you get the chance, search for the pictures of this place and its surround. We will definitely be posting some up onto the web and when arriving, try and get a room on the FRONT of the hotel and gasp as you wake up to the most beautiful landscape that you would ever wish to see from a hotel balcony.
P.S. All inclusive is fine but take a bottle of your own tipple (duty free) as bar is limited to small shots of vodka and raki during the day. Germans love it but there again, it's free, innit? Want to excel with the staff?? Take a litle time to study and pronounce a few words of Turkish BEFORE you go. It REALLY IS appreciated by the staff!!

Nice size bathroom but no bath.
Previous reviews led me to believe I was going to an amazing hotel.
I must say its a lovelly place if you happen to like turkish or german food.
If not you will be a little stuck but you will be OK with chips chips and more chips served at every meal including cold ones at breakfast.
The food was very repetative and at times uneatable.
I mainly eat salad on holiday plenty to choose from if you like turkish type salads.
The beach is about a five minute walk away and plenty of space with free loungers and towels provided one only per week if you want to change your towel you have to pay 1 euro.
The beach cafe was ok snacks where limited to odd looking hot dogs and of course chips.
Alcoholic drinks are limited certain drinks ie bacardie only served after 6pm, just my luck as its the only thing I drink.
Staff are great very friendly and willing to do anything for you, limited english speaking.
To sumerise lovelly hotel let down by the food.
And dire entertainment.
I wouldnt return. PS definatly not for children.

Hotel was very clean, lots of staff around to keep it that way.
Location was good, just a short stroll to the beach and some shops and bars close to hand.
Staff were all very friendly and spoke to all customers in whichever langauage was needed.
Entertainment, Sunday night was a really good night, all the staff members dressed up and acted out different comedy sketches.
I'd definately visit this hotel again and again and again!
