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.

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

Although this Hotel is rated 5* locally and 4*+ by Thompson,I would like to say it seemed to be more 4* than 5*. My personal feeling was that although the Hotel was very clean and all the staff were very pleasant it lacked something that I have not been able to pinpoint. It could be that it's size is too great to give it any feel of intimacy? This was the largest of the three All inc hotels I have stayed at this year, that aside it is a very comfortable and well run hotel but it maybe trying too hard. I personally would not return to this hotel only because I like to have a whole new experience when I go away. If you like larger Hotels then this one is worth a visit. More
Very nice hotel, but the service touches perfection!
We visited this hotel with our family arriving late in the evening. Our son has food allergies and we were quite hungry arriving without diner. We mentioned to the chef that he could not eat everything so he was only eating some fries and meat. Nevertheless, our son still got something he cannot have, so he was ill the first night. Without telling, the next day, the chef came to us to ask how everything went last night. When we told him the story, everything was organised to be separated and fresh the whole week!! Every evening, the chef or his replacer went to the kitchen to organise the diner for our son personally and we had a lovely week with varied food, also for our son! The hotel is very nice, clean rooms, big pools, very good food but the best experience was the service. Hotel Turquoise, thanks a lot !More

We stayed in this resort for a week at the end of october, with one baby and two young kids. The whole family really enjoyed it. We often select resorts based on Tripadvisor comments and rating, looking at the ratio between excellent and mediocre feedbacks. This hotel was clearly recommended and we were not disappointed. The location is great, close to the city of Side were nice roman ruins could be visited. It takes 15 minutes by running along the beach to reach it. Otherwise 4km and 8 Euro by taxi. We walked several times with the kids there (50 minutes, along the beach, back with Taxi) The hotel is very well managed. Strong hotel management team seems to be in place with procedures in place very well followed by all personal. The food is diverse and good, lots of vegetables, and fruits and a different themes every evening. The restaurant personal is especially nice, efficient and helpful. There are plenty opportunity to enjoy the beach, the swimming pool, people usual don't fight for a good spot as there are many of them and plenty of chair to sit on. There is kids club that seems to be active and efficient. It is possible to play tennis, football, video-games (to be charged) and plenty other choices If I really was looking to complain about something: the swimming pools are not heated, at this time of the year it really prevents to swim. We bought upfront special surf/swimming gears for kids so that they can stay longer and they really enjoyed it, especially the slides The restaurant personal tends to clean the tables very quickly, watch your plate or it will disappear before you even realise. Except 1 or maximum 2, the shows in the evening are relatively of poor quality, but it is not the primary reason why you would choose the hotel. However the kids enjoyed the disco-party before the main show every night Overall, a very good address, definitely recommended.More

Good hotel, poor management
We were booked into this hotel from 10th-17th October this year. My husband and I, along with our 4 year old son and 7 month old girl were given a room on the ground floor not far from reception. The room had a doublebed, sofabed and a travel cot. Although we were told it was a "deluxe room", we felt it was rather small. But the worst was to come: the very poor air conditioning. This was centrally controlled and in temperatures of 29 degrees average during our stay, was mostly kept switched off, or was fixed at a temperature that made no difference. My kids found it very hard to sleep in the heat. I spoke to different management personnel 3 times and was eventually told by Irena at reception very dismissively that I "cannot do anything about it". How disappointing that a 5 star hotel tries to keep costs down by making its customers sleep in such high temperatures. I was not offered a different room or contacted by a manager. This ruined the entire holiday. Other than that, food was lovely, fresh with lots of variety. We tried the Chinese a la carte restaurant but it was so unimpressive that we cancelled our reservations to the other restaurants and were happy with the buffet restaurant. Staff appeared to be run off their feet in the buffet restaurant but were always polite and helpful. The hotel was always very clean, as was the beach although it was rather small. Location-wise Side had a few Roman ruins, but was otherwise full of fake designer gear. Our flight home with Thomson was at 10pm at night, so we would have had to pay a significant extra amount of money to keep the room until this time. But towards the end of our week there, I was so fed up with the lack of AC at night that we decided to check out a day early and spend the last night in Antalya city. It's ironic that we booked a 3 star hotel there that was rough around the edges, but guess what! It had a fully functional air conditioning unit in the room that we could actually switch on! In conclusion we're extremely disappointed with the hotel management as we were completely ignored and our concerns dismissed. For this reason we won't be returning. The food was lovely and hotel staff helpful but the lack of culture and things to do in Side makes this location best for those that just want to fly and flop.More
