We are a family of 4 and spent 11 nights here at the end of August/early September 2015. We've been to many different resorts in Turkey over the last 20 years, and have stayed at around 15 or 16 all inclusive hotels between May and November. We're also quite well travelled around the rest of the world. I have never seen such poor standards of food hygiene anywhere else in the world.......(well except for Djibouti in Africa!) There were flies crawling all over the segments of the fresh fruit in the main buffet at breakfast. This was the case at 7am when it opened. When food and drinks were spilt, and waiters were told about the mess, it was often there for 20 minutes or more. I actually saw several people slip over on spilt drinks. Eventually when they were cleaned up, the cleaners did such a poor job and usually left quite a bit of it on the floor. There is a bar outside where the evening entertainment takes place. The surface of the bar was always sticky and covered in flies. I only ever saw water being used to wipe these areas down. Never did I see proper cleaning fluids or chemicals being used. The final straw was when we all ate in the Turkish speciality a ' la carte restaurant and watched the chef wipe his sweaty forehead with his bare hands, and then use them to pull the meat off the skewers and straight onto our plates. We complained to guest relations who couldn't believe this had happened. We also told them about the chefs who were smoking in between cooking.
Pros: The wooden jetty for sunbathing. And that is ALL there is to like about it. Oh, and the guest relations staff are very helpful when you do complain.
Cons: The running of all the restaurant areas and cleanliness of the whole hotel. The choice of food was quite limited also.
Location: It is quite expensive for a return taxi to Side - 45 euro's. The white water rafting was quite good, but it takes 1 to 2 hours to get there.
