Hotel not really 5 star maybe 4, rooms very small, maid service every day.
Food and drink wasn’t bad, plenty of it.
A lot of German and Russian holiday at this hotel most things seem to cater for them, they had the best rooms in the actual hotel, even the TV had German and Russian channels, and entertainment was poor.
Staff were very nice.
Booked a boat trip with "jimmy boy"" could have got better deal in Icmeler town (all inclusive boat trip is not all inclusive through jimmy boy as we found out only when we got on the boat) save money go elsewhere and get a much better deal.
Very limited choice with Chicken and Turkey being the staple diet it would seem. Not that we went hungry but used to a much better choice. The salad bar was one of the best I have come across. Pizza was good for lunch and there was also burger and chips if you wanted it. Breakfast menu again left much to be desired. Fried eggs once a week, eggie bread the same and one day we had omelettes. One guest approached the chef asking why no English breakfast. He replied they were a Muslim country but could not explain why there was a selection of hams on the breakfast bar. You could eat all day if you wished with something always available. From 11.30pm to 12.30am there was soup and rolls if you wanted it. Tea and coffee was always available. The best meal we had was the Turkish al a cart evening for which you need to book.
The hotel itself was first class. Clean and comfortable with maid service everyday and clean towels also. Indeed clean was the rule with staff constantly ensuring it stayed that way.
Bar staff worked hard and service was quick.
Entertainment team seemed to work hard but could do with some organisation. Music on the terrace for dancing (disco) every night.
As someone else has said if you want a trip then see Jimmy Boy who always had a friendly word and very good value.
Saving the best for last. It would not be fair if I was to single out any member of staff for praise. They were all as good no matter what their job was. I am accused at times for being stingy where tipping is concerned but on this occasion I was not only generous but would have liked to give more. If anyone needs an example of how staff should operate then pay this place a visit. I have stayed in many hotels but have never come across a team like they have here.

As the hotel is located on a hillside there are steps everywhere - so not for anybody with disability problems or for someone who doesn't like climbing 2-3 flights of steps to get a drink [if you are relaxing at the sea front].
Food was o.k. certainly plentiful. main restaurant never too busy. Tea and coffee always available but no ice cream - had to pay for that. Piazzas down at the seafront bar excellent - around fourish.
Entertainment was poor apart from 2 turkish nights. I preferred listening to the piano player in the hotel lobby but she was often drowned out by the inane screaming of the hotel entertainment team nearby.
The hotel staff at the reception were as unwelcoming as I have experienced - none speaking very good English. So overall, will not be going back.

The hotel is situated between Icmeler and Marmaris and although the walk to either is along a very pleasant seafront prominade it will take approx 20 mins to get to Icmeler and 40 mins to get to Marmaris which is just a little too far especially in heels of an evening :-)
The hotel entertainment is at best average although i am not doubting they put there heart and soul into it
it was very holiday camp and not a good holiday camp at that so if we did decide to stay at the hotel it was a little boring to say the least
The food was an issue all week to 3 of our party as we are all rather particular (ok ok fussy) in what we eat and therefore never really managed to get a proper meal once during the week instead just picking at the bits we liked However my husband and my mum ate fine all week so it will depend on your tastes but in general i would have preferred more choices and more fresh fruit as this was very thin on the ground
Also the hotel had a majority of Russian guests and i believe a lot of the amenities etc were catered for their needs including the fact that the jeweller in the reception couldnt even speak English only Turkish and Russian !!!!
