This hotel sits snugly between pine trees and a private beach, giving it a secluded feel. The beach itself is a long sandy stretch, with shingle edging the water. A pair of jetties reach out into the sea, topped with loungers and steps that lead down to the water. Completing the scene is a snack bar and a watersports centre offering everything from canoeing to paragliding.
Dotted throughout the grounds, you’ll find a great selection of pools. The main one is a huge curvy set-up, with a wavy slide and two twisting chutes. Sun terraces sprawl across the gardens and come with clusters of sunbeds and parasols. For something a little quieter, there’s an adults-only pool, hidden away from the action.
One of the best things about this hotel, though, is the dining. The main food hub offers an international buffet, with different themed evenings. Or you can take your pick from one of the 5 à la carte restaurants which include Italian, Chinese and fish. And don’t miss an afternoon snack of gozleme - Turkish savoury pastries, served up in a traditional Arabic tent.
As for the bedrooms, expect smart and modern spaces. They’ve been simply designed without pinching on style. Walls and floors are decorated in shades of cream, while big beds and plump armchairs up the comfort factor. Additional touches come in the form of satellite TVs, minibars and air-conditioning.
Finally, this place can be found about a ten-minute drive from the heart of Side. And with a bus stop just outside the hotel, you can get into town for only a couple of euros.

Top class hotel
This is our second visit to this hotel and this visit was much better than previous the hotel has expanded from 9 years ago and the staff were very helpful. Very beautiful surroundings. Food was excellent especially a la carte Turkish. Animation shows on the evening were professional and excellent and varied. Nice open air disco.More

we loved it from day 1 to the end. Stayed there end of October 2013 and were very lucky with the weather: blue sky all week long. The hotel is just perfect, we loved having both pool and beach. Being walking distance by the beach of antique town Side was a real plus, we enjoyed visiting the ruins with our young children. Staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. We would simply go back to the same place!More

Really loved this hotel. Our room was fantastic! It was v clean, always tidy and spotless, lovely bathroom! Apart from the smell, for some reason it smelled of sewage all the time! Great bed and plenty of space, quite modern decor. Keep the doors closed though unless you love the sound of crickets they are in the tress, you dont really see them but you defiantly hear them. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The food was good, lots of choice and different styles each day. There was a lot of activity by the pool side which we enjoyed! Plenty of great shows on all week. Staff were friendly... Mostly. Some staff members were a bit miserable but on the whole they were nice. The beach was a bit of a let down as we expected sand not a shingle beach, but it was still clean and looked after. There are some negatives, there is a bit of a languages problem, most staff don't speech much English so you may need to keep it short and to the point, the Doctor! Watch out for him! My fiance had an ear infection and the onsite doctor said he would syringe them for 150 euros! We decided it was too dear and he didn't bother, when we got home and had his ears checked the nurse said if he had of got his ears syringed, he could have went deaf!! You must never syringe infected ears! Also there was a man selling the spa packages he was v pushy and quickly became rude when you said you did not want a spa package. Apart from this we had an amazing holiday and will definitely go back there one day.More

Super resort with great service
I enjoyed the last week of the season this year at this resort. It's quite large, with plenty of entertainment options. The food was a great as was the service. The pools are far too cool, however. Especially at the end of the October. Fine rooms, good bars and plenty of options for soaking up the rays.More

An excellent hotel with great service, the personel seems to love their job. We have now been to Turquoise 2 years in a row and already booked for a third time. Starting at the greeting when you arrive you get cool towels and champagne with a big smile. The rooms are always clean and fresh. Food is great, variations everyday in the buffe resturant and great food in the 5 theme resturants. The beach is a bit rocky but otherwise perfect, you never have to look too long for a sunchair. If you want a chair on the piers though you´ll have to be up early. Turquoise is a perfect receipe for relaxation!More
