At the front of the hotel we were greeted warmly by the staff, and the appearance of the grounds was amazing, lovely flowers trees and looked so well kept. First impressions were really good, and continued throughout the week.
The pool was lovley, and the pool area was clean and child friendly, with a separate pool for the little ones, with a play area close by.
It was lovely being by the pool surrounded by the view of the mountains.
Rooms were basic, but comfortable, with a nice balcony and clean sheets and towels everyday.
The hotel offers a regular bus service to its private beach on the blue lagoon, which was nice for a change of scene.
The All inclusive menu was amazing! Ive been AI before and it can sometimes be very basic, but this was amazing, such a wide variety of food, hot and cold, couldn't fault it.
Evening entertainment was very basic, but it was OK, but its only a very short wander into the town, with shops, bars and nightlife. The bars on the beach were lovely at night time.
The beach itself was pebbles, but the water was so clean and warm, just perfect.
We cannot wait to go back, and this time take the kids too.
Anyway l will come back to suncity again and recommend all my friends.Cant wait to go there.

The pool is great but the early bird catches the worm as far as sunbeds go(get them towels on them early). They do supply towels for round the pool but again get there early. The towels are usualy there from 8am ish behind the entertainment station.
The baby pool is fantastic but is a little bit deep. My 18 month old son could only just stand up as the water came to just below his chin. They do play music around the pool but it is not loud.
The food was all be it some times repetative was great. You can not take points away for quality. There was always something for the kids, with plenty of chips and burgers or sausage. The only problem was that they used to shut the kids buffet very early. The snack bar at dinner time was fab with pizza, burger and hot dogs with chips. The pancake lady, well i wanted to take her home with me they were that great. The best thing ever. The desserts were amazing. The waiter did an excellent job and couldn't do enough for us.
The bar staff were fantastic especially Patrick, at the main pool bar. The free drinks did not stop till 2am.
The hotel is idealy located in a very quiet area and only a 2min walk to the bars and shops and a further 2mins to the beach.
The hotels privet beach is very small and cramped with alot of wasps. We chose to use the sugar beach of which we feel is the best on the Lagoon by far IDEAL for kids shallow water and sandy beach and the drinks and snacks are very reasonable. They will come and pick you up for free from your hotel you just need to get reception to phone them.
Entertainment team are great darts, shooting,table tennis ,water polo, aqua aerobics and more during the day aswell as kids club with Ozzy she is fab there is a club house on the park where it is held.Night time is a bit ropey dance shows and things like that although I will recommend the BINGO it cost

People expecting to get drunk in the terrace bar then guess again, as it had the worlds slowest barman who would blatantly ignore the fact that you were waiting to be served as 90% of the time he was chatting up women at the end of the bar. You will also not get Effers lager as all they have is Tuborg which is basically flavoured water.
As for the entertainment well basically that is a contradiction in terms, my wife took my daughter to the ampitheatre (should really be called the armpittheatre) to see the show which contained scenes about prostitution as well as other items of a sexual nature, not something you really want your 10 year old daughter seeing.
We did not go their private beach after hearing bad reports about it, spend 3 Lira each and visit the blue lagoon on the decent side, we went twice and loved it.
Ice cream is available for 2 hours a day, but unless you want to queue for half an hour I wouldn't bother.
Be aware that you will not get clean towels or bedding every day, infact they only come round once every 3 days to change those, which most people I spoke to thought was a bit of a disgrace that towels wern't changed daily.
Don't bother trying to get a lounger by the pool, as most have towels on them by 7:30am, and for once it's th Enlish and not the Germans that are guilty of that, but they have probably done that to get there before the Germans :)
Overall I was not impressed with Sun City at all, food and drink were terrible and most people I spoke to agreed, the majority of staff were totally ignorant (with the exception of a few) or spoke no English at all.
My parents also came with us and they had previously been a few years before and loved it, however this time they never and have also sworn never to return to Sun City again, as they said it has really gone downhill since they were last there, they left 2 days before us and by that time we wished we were going home as well. One group flew home after 3 days and even paid for their own flights back to the UK .
Make sure that you keep your receipt for your safe, as when we came to check out they tried telling me that I had not paid for it, they quickly shut up once I produced the receipt.

then we had to land at gatwick so the engineers could fix plane properly which took 2 hours with us sitting on the plane.
after the problem was fixed we proceeded to dalaman arriving at 1.30 am.
we arrived at club sun city at 03.15 only to find that the hotel had overbooked and did not have the 3 rooms we had booked.so after 30 min's we were given a connecting room with extra beds put in for all 7 of us to sleep for the night.
we seen the rep then at 10 am to sort out our rooms this took all day where they tried to get us to move hotels which we, was not interested in doing at all.by the end of the day we had managed to get another one room but the first day of the holiday had been wasted sitting in reception.
day two and we finally got our third room but what a palaver this hotel made of the booking in the first place.
the hotel is located 10 min's walk from the beach and the shops/bars.
inside the hotel you have 2 bars,2 swimming pools,2 restaurants one of them being an Italian al a carte which you have to pay extra for,this also doubles as the snack bar in the day.
there is a gym,sauna and massage centre also.the animation team are truly wonderful making plenty of things for you to do day and night and if you do not want to join in they do not pester you.
there is also a park and hotel run children's club which is great for the little ones.
in fact all the staff from animation team to waiters/barmen are all very friendly and will try to have fun with you when the managers are not watching as they are not really allowed to associate too much with the guests.
the food was good but did tend to be a bit of the same things all the time which consists of mainly chicken or fish dish's for lunch/diner and fried egg or omelette at breakfast.you will not get any bacon or English sausage at all...
the deserts were excellent though and there was a lady cooking pancakes most of the day for a snack.
the snack bar did burgers,hot dogs,chips and pizza.
ice cream was only for 2 hours a day though which was bad for the kids in the heat.
the rooms were very spacious and cleaned most days where the maid also leaves a bottle of water for you.
in the room is a safety deposit box,TV with about 5 English speaking channels including BBC prime,a fridge,air conditioning and tea making equipment.
a little tip the power runs off the room key fob so ask for two keys or stick something into the card slot so the room is cool all the time and the fridge stays on.
night entertainment is by the animation team and they do some good shows and the kids have a mini disco every night.once a week they have a Turkish night with all Turkish food and entertainment.
there is a tennis court and bicycle hire but its way too hot to do these.
the hotel also has its own private beach on the blue lagoon which is a must to visit as its much cooler here.
there are sun beds,large bean bags,food and drink place,toilets,little huts to get out of the sun for a while and canoes and pedloes..
the hotel runs a free bus to and from the beach.
all in all this hotel is great apart from the management and I properly would recommend it.

food is luke warm and most day same lunch time as evening time.also all those parents out there beware that children cant eat until 7.30pm the snacks finish at 4pm.the icecreams were only free for two hours a day which i thought was a con for fully inclusive.if you like your cuppa in morning i suggest that you take t-bags with you or a small jar of nescafe as coffee was cold and weak and tea tasted like fags.most days we had bread and jam for breakfast then a chip butty for lunch,evenings we went out every night to eat else where.wine is just about bearable.two people were very ill eating the food so make sure you have insurance.i was told that one lady paid hospital bill of
