This was a brilliant holiday, the best we've been on. It was our first time all-inclusive, and we were really impressed with what we found.

Food was brilliant, always hot, fresh and loads of choice. Very healthy menu, we loved the tomato soup! Restaurant has 2 floors- we found sitting downstairs was quieter. Make sure you reserve the specialised restaurants- Fish restaurant and Turkish restaurant(Kebab). Fish restaurant is amazing- sitting right by the beach by candlelight. You get a 5 course meal- well worth visiting! The main pool bar serves snacks all day (pizza, burgers etc made to order- good for kids).

The grounds are pretty and clean, and the 2 pools are great. One pool has water slides- fun! Most holidaymakers were German, but this didn't bother us at all. Plenty of sun loungers- you don't have to fight for them! It was so relaxing having food and drink on tap- staff always pleasant, hard working and some were really funny!

Very, very hot in September- 35-40 degrees every day. Couldn't have coped without air-con in our room. Tip- put your make up in the fridge! Mini-bar always stocked up, maids are really friendly and do a brill job.

Entertainment was aimed at Germans really- although there was some English translation. There was a kids disco which I felt went on a bit too late. Didn't really appeal to us but Germans seemed to love the entertainment!
Holiday village has own section of the beach with free sun loungers. We didn't really go in the sea- we were quite happy lying by the pool. Holiday village located on a road with a few bars and shops. Bit quiet so definitely go to Side town if you fancy leaving the holiday village.

On our last day in Turkey, we paid for the Thomson excursion- visit the Timotei waterfall (beautiful) and then either go to the 5* hotel a minute from the airport (luxury) or go shopping all afternoon. Well worth paying if you have a night flight and want to make the most of your last day.

Excellent holiday.

The room were very clean as were the grounds of the village and the swimming pool.

The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food was really nice.

The entertainment team were brilliant and the shows they put on were top class.

We will definatly be going back but not for a couple of years when side is more established for the British.
