This smart hotel fronts its own beach, and comes with five à la carte restaurants and a great pools scene.
The dining choice here is vast – as well as a buffet there are 5 à la cartes, including a poolside steak place. Talking of pools, the collection features one that’s just for adults, and another with slides for everyone.
This hotel has a tucked-away feel to it, with a private, course-sand beach on one side and a pine forest on the other. It’s not far to Side, though – a 10-minute bus ride will do it, or a leisurely walk along the beach if you prefer.

Excellent all round
Had a wonderful 7 days at the Turquoise. The resort is stunning. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is very clean and offers excellent and much needed air conditioning in a number of areas. The deluxe rooms are fantastic, with enough room to sleep three if necessary and all necessary facilities provided including a very useful minibar. Food is of a high standard and there is certainly enough variation for a week. One downside is the difficulty in booking the a-la-carte restaurants. There are five to choose from but we only managed to book two. Would recommend trying to book as soon as you arrive (both a la cartes we tried were very good). You can also get great food, pastries and ice creams throughout the day in the numerous snack bars. Facilities in the complex are vast with the obvious (great) pools including one with three great water slides, archery, tennis, table tennis and more. There is also lots of entertainment (not tried by me) both during the day and of an evening. If that's not enough there is the beach and the lovely warm sea - the sea is a bit rocky but you do get the chance to see the turtles. Finally try out the jet skis and paragliding, well worth the additional cost. This hotel is well worth a visit and I will definitely be returning!!!More

Turquoise resort was a very good place to stay. I arrived to turquoise hotel on the 15th of august, with 4 other family members. When you arrive to the resort, you are welcomed by the staff and receive a glass of champagne and you are asked to sit down and they go through all information you need to know about the hotel. The food is very good and tasty, a large variety to choose from, at breakfast its best to be there before 9:30 because the staff start to take everything away and only left with a small choice. The food at breakfast is mainly, boiled eggs, egg with vegetables, scrambled egg, breads, salads, tomatoes, button beans in a tomato sauce (their version of baked beans), soup and more. Lunch starts at 12:30, you can either go to the inside restaurant or the outside snack bar, the only difference is, is that the snack bar have the same food everyday. At dinner time they usual do a theme every night. Gala night, turkish night, asian night and more. There are many bars in turquoise, we mostly sat around at the sultan bar, where there was music every night, loads of people get up and dance after they have a few drinks, ha ha. the entertainment team normally join and dance with guests. The entertainment people in my opinion make the stay a lot better, they are friendly, funny and helpful. In the day time they provide games for example, darts, swimming pool games, ping pong and many more.More

We just had a wonderful family holiday at the Turquoise Hotel. We are a family of 5, with 3 children aged 11,13 and 16, as well as their two grandmas and we all loved this hotel. In summary: food fantastic variety, fresh, always replenished and queues not bad at all for August. Pools lovely (we especially loved the relax pool and cool indoor pool). Shady gardens - to shelter from the August sun. Right next to nice beach. Loads of sun loungers available even in peak season. Really good evening entertainments (we LOVED the Four Seasons night outdoor disco!). Nice rooms kept spotlessly clean. And finally the lovely Turkish staff; TBH I find it a bit embarrassing lounging around for two weeks like a lazy north European lobster, stuffing my face all day long (there is afternoon tea and cakes, as well as 3 meals included!) and being waited on hand and foot by the lovely Turkish staff. However, I am now sitting in freezing cold Manchester, with the rain pouring down outside at the end of August dreaming about my next Turkish holiday so we really do appreciate it! Only one negative, our daughter cut her knee on a rock when swimming in the sea so please be careful.More

No complaints for the price
Booked with Thompson, stayed 7th August for two weeks. Booked the deluxe rooms (in the main building) Antalya airport was surprisingly quiet when we arrived mid afternoon, straight through passport control and not having to queue for a visa was a plus ! Transfer about an hour, no rep on the coach which seems to be the norm lately. Cold face cloth and glass of bubbly on arrival and quickly shown to our rooms. I emailed before departure and requested high floor and adjacent rooms which was what we got. The rooms are quiet small but are clean and comfortable. If you are next to the elevator then they are even smaller. Now as for deluxe, they may be for a four star but I have stayed in better standard rooms along the coast in 5* hotels in Belek. But having said that this was considerably cheaper than other similar accommodation in the Side area. The rooms were always cleaned to a high standard, towels and bedding changed when necessary and the mini bar and tea/coffee topped up every day, never had to ask for anything. The food was of a good standard, but as with all AI holidays it gets a bit samey after a while. We found the buffet was quieter if we went for breakfast about 8am and dinner 8pm. it could get busy and I wish people with children would realise its not a playground ! The waiters worked hard to clear dirty plates, bring drinks and reset tables in heat approaching 40 degrees. Again I emailed ahead of our arrival to request a booking in two al a carte's for my birthday and wedding anniversary, the hotel made the reservations for us. The Chinese was a nice atmosphere, a set menu with only two choices for main course, nothing like you get here but was nice to be waited on. The steak again a set menu no choices you got what you were given but again it made a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the buffet. My son ate at the Italian and he said it was by far the best of the al a carte's. The hotel also provided a bottle of champagne for my birthday and a bottle of red wine for our anniversary which was a nice touch. Drinks were not all premium brands but again were acceptable and the Coke/Sprite/Fanta was not the syrupy type that you often get in hotels. Gardens were kept immaculate, as were the pool area and beach first thing every morning. Sun beds should not be reserved here until after 9am, if you placed a towel/book and left them, they should have been removed, we did see this happen on several occasions but it was a bit hit and miss. Premium spots were taken early, but you could always get a bed and shade on the beach. The sea bed was a bit rocky in places so you needed to be careful, we had a few stubbed toes. There was always something going on around the pool, Water polo, darts, archery, volley ball, football. pool games etc. Did not see the evening entertainment, we liked to sit at the beach bar in the evening although some of the groups sounded dire ! Side was a taxi ride away 8 Euro, they are parked just outside the hotel. A typical Turkish town for the tourists full of fake goods, nice to have a wander in the evening. We stopped off at the Kiss bar for drinks, reasonably priced and run by a lovely chap. All in all we had a nice relaxing holiday, no complaints.More

Over priced average hotel
The four of us stayed for two weeks starting 6/8/14. We also went with several other friends. We found the hotel a real mix, some good points and some real let downs which I will go into. Overall, having stayed in several other 4star all inclusive places worldwide, this had to be the least luxurious and the most expensive. Good points- fantastic pool scene, some helpful efficient staff, clean modern rooms, lots of daytime activities, food mostly good, fantastic weather. Bad points- breakfast was barely worth getting up for. No fresh coffee ( all machine, self service) no bacon nearly all food catered for the Germans and Dutch. Restricted eating times at main buffet, if you miss the first 90 mins then the freshly cooked food has shut up. This is the food outside eg. Pancakes in the morning have usually finished by 0930. Lunch is served 12.30-2 pm so very tight slots. There is another outdoor eatery 12-4 but same food every day and little choice. Some of the waiters were very unhelpful and even rude at times. Buffet was crazy busy at times, the waiters expect you to move out of their way even though you would be carrying the plates of food and the waiters nothing. Some of the staff were good however. Food was occasionally good but mostly average. I met three people who had their AC break down in theirs rooms, leaking water every where. Seemingly a common problem. There must have been over 20 power cuts during our 14 night stay. 5 in one night. The evening entertainment was good at times but all quite similar- dance acts from around Europe mostly break dancing and some back flips. One act (Russian circus) had majority of children as the entertainers who were very talented. I did not enjoy the show as they were nearly all under the age of 12, flinging a 3-4 year old girl in the air repeatedly. And the others taking unnecessary risks for our entertainment. The music at the sultan bar was either poor or average, this is the main bar which closes at midnight. The lobby is the other bar which is 24/7 yet they turn the lights off in certain areas and you feel pushed out. Generally if you order more than 3 drinks, the barmen get a grump on, as we were in a group of 16 in total, this was very common. However the table service at sultan bar was much better. The cocktails and beer were definitely watered down, you could barely taste the any alcohol. Daytime entertainment round the pool and fitness classes were well run with fun staff. The pool with the slides were a big hit with the children. Also the indoor pool was a welcome break when the children had too much sun. The beach was ok, lots of loungers available through out the day unlike the main pool. We also saw several turtles in the sea when standing out on the long pier. Would I go back? No.More
