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 five 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.

nice place to stay
We were there last year in June and would definitely visit this hotel in the future again as we usually donÂ´t visit same place twice. I recommend to travel little earlier in June because not so many people will be there, but whole hotel site is quite large with many places to spend your time so it should be no problem go there anytime if you donÂ´t mind more people. ItÂ´s is true that there are no bars, shops etc. around hotel, but you can take bus (cheap, about 3 TL) directly in front of entrance and go to Side town which is only about 4km and 10min by bus, or take nice walk on the beach. Or try little bigger city of Manavgat, about 7km far. Taxi station is in front of hotel too so no problem with transport and last bus is going back around 9 or 10 p.m. If you are really lazy (no offence), you can totally spend your whole time in the hotel and beach, there is alway some activity to do, something to eat or drink and enjoy your holiday. Hotel site is placed in the pine forest with really amazing garden, so hot weather is no problem, and rest of travellers whose went to next hotels were really sad that they canÂ´t stay here too, haha. :-) After arrival we got welcome drink, all important information with the map of the hotel and our room was upgraded free into main building (probably because of not so many people in the beginning of June) so quite perfect start. Reception clerks were very polite as all staff in the hotel were very nice in total, and help you every time if you need something. Animation team is great and funny too (try archery). If you have problem with some staff, you are probably a rude customer. :-) We stay in main building. Room was nice, quite new and spacious with everyday cleaning and new towels. Beer and soft drinks in the fridge every day too. Everything you need was there even free wi-fi (in the whole hotel areal and on the beach). You have to pay only for safe. If you want to have everything near, room in main building is a good choice. But if you want to spend your time maybe little calmly, rooms in the marvelous hotel garden are good choice. Private beach is far best in the whole surroundings (try to go 4km left or right). Many sunbeds, two piers too with sunbeds. Beach is very clean, with sand. You can try some near water sports too. And there is also great beach bar with all kind of drinks and little nomad tent with some small snacks and bottles of water. (all inclusive of course, neednÂ´t pay drinks, food or sunbeds, only watersports of course) Beach bar was really great anyway, there was an outside projection of footbal matches of european cup in this time, perfect idea from the hotel. Yes and you can watch many fishs from tier, there are turtles too but we had no luck to see them. Food and drinks was great. There is lobby (open 24h), pool (till 6 p.m), main (till midnight probably) and beach bar (till midnight or 1 a.m.) with beer Efes, some wine, many soft drinks, spirits and great coctails! (you have to try Turquoise special;) ) You can buy of course some brand alcohol or fresh juice too. And you can take free bottle water almost everywhere. You can eat literally whole day in nomad tent near the beach, try some ice cream and cakes near main bar, try snack bar near pool or of course there is main restaurant. Also you can book one day in advance ala carte restaurants - you can choose steak, turkish, fish and chinese, every once free per stay. We try steak and turkis and both were great. I think there is some food only for children or vegetarians too so nobody will starve. (if you do, itÂ´s probably your mistake sorry) Activities - almost every evening except sunday there is some performance in the theatre, live music and dance near main bar or some activities from animation team. You can try darts, archery, some water activities and many other sports and things so you shouldnÂ´t be bored. There is little shop inside hotel with local tourists goods and some spa but didnÂ´t try it. Other tips - visit Side (cheap museum, old theatre and many archaeological stuffs, maybe beware of some traders..), Green Canyon (nice boat trip from dam), Manavgat (great mosque, nice walk around the river Manavgat, and huge bazaar but personally I donÂ´t like it) if you can. Maybe there are better hotels around the Side but if you choose this one, you are making no mistake.More
Amazing holiday September 2016
What can I say.....We booked this holiday 2 weeks prior to leaving the UK for a weeks break and for me the first time that I had ever been all inclusive..... Yes, there were concerns with going to Turkey and I had to advise my girlfriends parents that all would be ok as I had done my research on the Government websites, so all was fine. We flew with Thomsons and so we knew that we were in safe hands. The flight went as planned and we landed at Antalya Airport... Again easy to find our coach to the Hotel and ok the travel from the airport to the hotel took just over 1 hour 30mins but once at the hotel the welcome was FANTASTIC... A Welcome glass of sparkly and a warm towel to freshen up. From here we were able to grab some food at nearly 1am in the morning..... For the next week we had as much food as we could eat and what a selection.....and lovingly cooked and presented... The drinks were freely flowing, the mini bar was restocked everyday and the weather was exceptional. The hotel staff were very kind and gracious (we did not encounter any issues because we were British and not German etc s has been mentioned on other posts) There was plenty of entertainment so you would never be bored! If you fancy a stroll for a coffee and a light lunch away from the resort then there is a little town within a 45minute walk along the stunning sandy beaches...in the town there is plenty of history with the Temple of Apollo, the gladiators coliseum and and whole host of other ruined buildings. So YES.....A GREAT HOLIDAY........ Will we go back......Hell yes, looking at going back this year for a 2 week holiday... I could not fault this hotel..... One other thing...on the second day there was a little rain and wind......ok a mini monsoon.....so there was some damage caused due to trees being damaged.....but within an hour of the storm ending there wass Operation Clean Up which included staff, outside operators and even some guests helping out with mops, buckets and brooms.... AMAZING!!!!! See you all again later in the year!!!!!More
Perfect beach holiday
My boyfriend and I stayed a week early July 2016. My only criticism was the heat. However, this was my fault for not checking the average temperature before booking. So this will not go against my rating as it was completely my fault. Our first 2 days they average temperature was 41c and for the rest of the week averaged between 36 and 39. The hotel is in a perfect location, right next to a sandy beach which is lovely to swim in. This is where I spend most my time trying to keep cool. I have to say it's one of the nicest beaches I've swum in (maybe as it helped cool me down!) Beware though as there are rocks in it. As the sea is so clear you can see them clearly though. The hotel have a private section along the beach as do the neighbouring hotels. They have security patrolling too which is nice to see. Even though they've had issues in Turkey in the lead up and after my holiday I felt completely safe at Side. The food was outstanding at Turquoise. I've not been on many all inclusives but my boyfriend has and he commented that this hotel was far superior food wise. There was so much choice on offer even the fussy wouldn't have much to complain about. What I loved was the outside cooking stations which changed most evening what was on offer. The puddings were amazing too so be prepared to put a few pounds on! All drinks are included in the all inclusive which was great. The cocktails for me were the best thing and drinking at the beach bar in the evenings was a perfect way to finish the day. The rooms were nice and cleaned really well each day. There's a fridge in the room which is restocked every day with water, soft drinks and beer which was a nice touch. The bed was comfortable and the shower was powerful. For those who like to stay connected the wifi is free all throughout the hotel and even as far as the beach. All in all I'd thoroughly recommend this hotel.More
Went here for a week for a relaxing in the sun break . From the moment we arrived we had first class service . We had sea view room , which was spacious and spotless. But was noisy at night as when the bands were on singing it was above our room . Even with the patio doors shut the noise was far to loud. So if I came again I would chose a different room.More

Amazing All-Inclusive First Vacation!
Loved it! What more can I say? First holiday with the other half, and it was brilliant! Champagne arrival with cold towels, room upgrade as soon as we arrived and amazing service all throughout the time we were there. The quiet pool was just that - out of the way and quiet. There was stuff for kids to do, and the beach was beautiful! Great hotel, great staff, amazing food, amazing cocktails and one of the best vacations I've ever had! We'll be going back on a family vacation within the next year or so, and will be taking a villa with private pool, just so we are all together.More
