He says: This was my first visit to this hotel and what struck me the most was the quality and choice of food and restaurants. All inclusive really means all inclusive here, with premium branded drinks, a la carte restaurants, and even the mini bar all part and parcel. The rooms were modern and contemporary and the service throughout was first class.
She says: This is my second visit to this hotel and I came back because of the amazing experience I had last year. There is so much to do for everyone and no one ever gets bored! It’s a venue brimming with luxury and it doesn’t compromise when accommodating families either. There are dedicated areas in the restaurant for children to help themselves, where they can be independent with their own tables and TVs whilst the adults can enjoy a relaxing meal nearby.
She says: I love the spa – it has a great pool for an early morning swim as well as a sauna, steam room and Turkish bath. The key for me is the loungers around the pool for chilling out after that swim. I experienced the Turkish Bath (being in Turkey why wouldn’t you?) which was a first for me and I was greeted by my therapist and shown to the sauna for a 10-minute session to open my pores. I was then led to the Turkish bath suite where I lay on a marble bed and was scrubbed to get rid of dead cells, before what I can only describe a large bag, filled with soap and shaken to produce foam, was placed over my body. Warm water followed to remove the foam and my hair was washed to finish the treatment. I was then left in the relaxation area for five minutes and then taken to a treatment room where I had my back, neck and shoulder massage which was intense but removed the knots that I had in my shoulders. The whole experience was amazing and allowed me to completely zone out and relax. That night I had one of the best night’s sleep of my life!
He says: we played on the PGA, Nick Faldo designed course which was a short taxi ride from the hotel. The whole experience was fantastic and the weather was perfect for golf; not too hot and no rain. We played 18 holes – the King’s and the Prince’s courses, and what really stood out was the immaculate condition of the greens. There were some challenging holes that we enjoyed and overall it was nicely landscaped. There was also a cart that brought out refreshments and snacks, which was a nice addition. We hired the clubs which were incredibly good quality and enjoyed a refreshing beer from the bar at the 19th hole as well. Overall it was an impeccable course and I would happily do it all again.
He says: the Italian restaurant was out of this world and the amount of food we received was incredible. You would pay good money in any top class restaurant in the UK for this and the service was once again impeccable. There was also a patisserie that offers a whole range of cakes, pastries and ice creams from 11am-6pm, which was ideal for an afternoon teatime treat.
She says: as well as the adult only and family buffet restaurants that we visited, we also had a choice of an a la carte Italian restaurant and a Chinese restaurant. The buffets had a variety of stations with different foods from around the world so we never got bored. They also had beach snack bars with the choice of burgers, wraps and sandwiches throughout the day. The Chinese restaurant was a lovely alternative with waiter service and a themed environment that gave you the feeling that you had gone out to a restaurant for a meal as opposed to eating in a hotel.
He says: there is some great evening entertainment from acts such as African acrobats to magicians and dance shows in the main venue, to live bands in the sunset bar. There is also a sports bar which showed live football matches, had a pool table and was a great place for groups of golfers to socialise.
She says: from a kids’ club with a full programme to keep my five year old son happy throughout the day and night, to lots of leisure facilities including step classes, a full size swimming pool, spa facilities and table tennis as well as the opportunity to participate in boules and mountain biking, there was plenty to keep us entertained. There was also a cinema with movies scheduled throughout the day as well as a crazy golf course, a fairground and a waterpark.
He says: It’s perfect for golfers thanks to the great location and opportunity to experience many of the Belek courses. It’s also as a great place to come back to and relax at after a day on the course. Those who like a lot of leisure activities will love it so it’s particularly good for groups.
She says: absolutely everyone but especially those who want incredibly good value, great food and service with good spa facilities. It’s ideal for families that are looking for a five star experience throughout without compromising. Finally, it’s a wonderful spa or golf getaway for groups of friends with the bonus of fantastic weather!!
1. Book the a la carte restaurants in advance to avoid disappointment. They are included in the price and are well worth the visit!
2. Get to the spa for 8am to have a chilled out swim first thing before breakfast (when it’s incredibly quiet); it really sets you up for the day.
3. Don’t forget the all inclusive mini-bar in the room which is full of drinks and snacks.
4. Get yourself an entertainment programme on arrival so you are on top of what’s happening daily.
5. Upgrade your room to a sea view for the ultimate experience.
6. Visiting the patisserie is a must for those with a sweet tooth!
