What a delightful hotel!!

The place was spotlessly clean, even down to the staff spraying the citrus trees to rid them of insects.
The maid service was second to none, nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel is set in a fairly quiet area, you could hear the occassional thump thump of a distant disco, but apart from that, it was peace and tranquility all the way.

The swimming pool is located towards the rear of the hotel, while we were there, lots of guests chose the pool over the beach, this was because someone had spread a rumour that the passing boats were polluting the shoreline with their waste. This was not true, it was the turtles!!!
The beach was regularly cleaned anyway, so there should have been no complaints.

The food was plentiful and varied, and with the luxury of a personal waiter, you wanted for nothing, as soon as your glass was nearly empty, another would arrive.
What made it better for me was that the British only made up about 10% of the guests, the majority being German. They were full board and had to pay for their drinks, which caused some amusement.

The Cennet is in a superb position right on the beach and set in its own lovely gardens.

We were told by the locals that Cennet means paradise and it certainly was.

The public areas and the rooms were spotlessly clean.
We stayed on half board and there was always plenty to choose from the buffet breakfast but the evening meals were limited to a choice of three main courses, which were usually fish, meat or vegetarian. The staff were always friendly and attentive.

There was an animation team of 2 guys and 1 girl, they organised beach volley ball and water aerobics during the day.

The evening entertainment was poor but we were treat to a Turkish night on one evening which was an improvement.

This was our first visit to Turkey and WILL NOT be our last!. The Cennet hotel was a good choice to make-from the moment we arrived to leaving we were superbly looked after.(Special mention to Mustafa & Ercan our lovely waiters).We stayed for 2 weeks on all inclusive basis and didn't want for anything.

The food is plentiful, fresh, well cooked & well presented. It is buffet breakfast, snack bar lunch (try the pizza, fries & salad if you can manage it - gorgeous!) and waiter service for the evening meal, what more could you want! Even with a fussy teenager if he didn't fancy what was on the menu for evening meal they would kindly make omelette & chips.

The hotel was kept very clean and the rooms we had were immaculate, maids came daily with fresh towels and the sheets arranged in fans.Please help them by keeping you rooms tidy & don't forget to tip them at the end of your stay they deserve it!.

The hotel is set in well kept gardens and our children had great fun with the gardener who sprayed them with his hose pipe.

The pool is cleaned every night and there were always sun-beds available although it is wise to put towels down before breakfast.

You could not ask for a better hotel location - set on it's own private beach which is clean and safe for children.

We found the staff here to be friendly, willing to help and always had a smile on their faces. Treat them as you would like to be treated and they will look after you well.

The entertainment leaves a little to be desired but the animation team did their best. We had a beach party with a bonfire, fire-eater and a singer which was good fun, dancing on the sand until the early hours. The dancing groups that visited were also very good.

We don't usually visit the same hotel twice but if I had some spare cash I would go back tomorrow!.

The Cennet hotel is to be recommended.

The Cennet was a pleasent happy on going activity based hotel, with lots to offer everyone of all ages.

Staff were welcoming and very helpful, and spoke many languages fluently - English was excellent.

Entertainment was always provided, and everyone was equal and had a chance to try whatever they wanted.

Food was spectacular. Amazingly put out, decoration and presentaion was extremly detailed and everything tasted wonderful. They catered for everyone.

I have visited since and I will again in the future I had a fantastic time and so did the rest of the family.

Excellent. Fantastic service from morning to night. We have been to many places in turkey and this is the best holiday that we have had.

Most of the entertainment was organised, the kids were never board. You have your own part of the beach with security guard, the local shops where hassle free unlike side shops.

The food was first class with waiter service and the evening meal was not buffet.

The rooms where very clean and the bedding changed twice a week. Towels where provided free of charge for the beach.

We are going to wait a couple of years and the go back to the cennet, let

Our room was right above the laundry room and the air conditioning was turned off at 2.00a.m so it was very uncomfortable at nights when you tried to sleep.
