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.

We arrived on 31 Jul for a 2 week holiday and after reading reviews on trip advisor were expecting something extraordinary and that's what we got! On arrival with a glass of champagne, a cold towel, access to food if wanted and all luggage taken to room so no carrying around heavy luggage, all welcome after travelling for 8 hrs total in the day. The rooms booked were standard, but there was nothing standard about the rooms at all. We had two rooms, 5215 and 5219, in D Block which had a lovely view of the gardens, non-smoking room with a mini bar stocked every day and due to its location (only 5 mins walk from all amenities) in the gardens, the rooms were cool in the evening even without air con. The staff were amazing particularly the bar men in the 24 hr lobby bar, both before but particularly after midnight, who were always topping up drinks without asking and even bringing over to us as a waiter service when not required to do so. There are a lot of sun beds available, but even with the 9 am ban on towels it was harder in the popular areas to get a prime lounger, but just sent the husband down earlier! The food is the best AI we have ever had, I am a fussy eater but had no issue with the food at all in the buffet area and still had plenty to eat, there was also a different theme every night which meant that food was not repetitive at all. We ate in all the A La Carte restaurants and really enjoyed them all, highly recommend that you book as soon as you get there though as they only have one sitting in an evening and are very popular! The staff are great and can speak English, not fluently but enough to understand what you need, didn't get involved with the animation team but they were seen everywhere and always on the go. Entertainment was better than expected, however, but still what I would expect from a holiday destination, particularly when they have a large audience with many different languages to please but please they did and I have seen far worse. I could go on and on, but honestly there were no negatives to be found at the hotel and would highly recommend this hotel to families and couples alike. I would also recommend taking euros though, we were told to take Lira but found that most shops, buses and taxis are priced in Euro. Thank you to all the staff and management at the hotel for making our holiday unforgettable, and we hope to visit again.More

According to our expectations!
We are family of four (My Wife, my 2 Kids and me) and have been at the hotel one week (26.07.2014 to 02.08.2014). Transfer from airport take little over an hour, but once in the hotel check-in goes fast and personnel makes you feel welcome immediately. A bit more of info about activities and how to book them would have been appreciated. We tried to upgrade for a Villa but all was fully booked. We were in the building E, room 6035. 5 minutes awl from the main building / reception. Seven from the Buffet restaurant and 10 from Swimming pools and the beach. Spacious room, confortable and clean, a room for me & my wife, another for the kids. You have to pay a fee for the safe which is not big deal. Minibar refiled everyday although we should remember them to leave some beers. :-) Premises are great, the park full for threes, the swimming pools were clean, the slides were a lot of fun, and the beach have nice sand with warm water. We spend a lot of time near the kids / slides swimming pools. To "reserve" sun beds leaving towels on them is forbidden before 9 and often than not, if the personnel spot somebody doing it, they remove the towels. We took a tour with a boat to see sea turtles and it was worth it. The only thing we were not totally pleased was with the "mini club". The staff was not really trying to include our kid and integrate hm to ongoing activities. We do not expect that they speak Spanish, Norwegian or Swedish, but they do speak english and just did not use it. The food was great . They have a different tema each day. Italian and Turkish were the best. Mexican and Chines were... well.. not specially good. But the quality and variety of everyday was good. During the day you can eat pizzas and have as many drinks, ice cream and pastries as you want. We did not manage the A la carte restaurante as we tried to book it too late. But we were eating each night outside the buffet area, watching the sea and the sunset. Great. Te spa was quite good, although a bit pricey. Everybody was nice, always smiling and trying to help. We highly recommend this Hotel and are thankful for a great holiday!More

Stayed from 31st July for 2 weeks before travel I emailed the hotel to arrange a birthday cake for my daughter as it was her birthday day after we were due to arrived hotel were very accommodating and helpful. Arrived on thomson flight was bit stressed on arrival as one of our suitcases had gone missing thomson rep was very helpful and it arrived a day and half later. Arrival at the hotel was very professional had lovely glass of champagne whilst they briefed us on hotel facilities. We had booked 2 double standard rooms which were very nice in peaceful location overlooking the gardens fridge was stocked daily.Main buffet was lovely always good choice to a high standard and very nice during the day snack food bars were also very nice also enjoyed the fresh Turkish breads that were made to order. Hotel grounds were lovely never been to a hotel with so many sunbeds hotel did remove towels before 9am it just meant that one party member would need to stay at the beds till 9 am, beach was lovely sea was amazing I could go on and on as there was nothing negative. If you are considering booking hotel turquoise don't hesitate we had an amazing holiday and would highly recommend. More

Up to what we expected
We have just returned from a 1 week break at the Turquoise and we are pleased to do a review to aid others. Our party consisted of 2 adults & 1x 11 year old and we do travel a lot so try and be fair in our comments. Arrival, our flight was on time (early hours of the morning) so we did not get to the hotel until around 1am, the reception was excellent with cold drinks and towels all round and lots of info. After a brief wait we were shown to our room in the main block but found it to smell of tobacco smoke plus it did not have a balcony. We complained and they immediately refreshed the room and told us to call back to reception In the morning which we did. Although the hotel was full to capacity (1400 guests) After some discussions the following morning we were told that we had actually booked a standard room through Thompson's but we had been upgraded to a deluxe room. We asked to look at alternative rooms and finally agreed to change back to a standard room (7116) away from the main hotel but it suited all our needs. Note - there are very few sea view rooms in this hotel so if you want one book one before arriving and expect to pay for it. Negative Points A La Carte restaurants, we were told they were fully booked for the whole week we were there but after standing our ground the staff were good and helped and we were able to get in to 3 of them, in fact there were empty tables in all 3 whilst we were there. Positive Points Excellent location Excellent staff in all areas Clean Good drinks Good food Drinks Waiter service at lunch and evening meals plus at sultan bar Good entertainment Nice beach Plenty of sun beds Shower facilities all over complex including on jetty's Changing cubicles all over complex including on jetty's You can't place towels on sun beds before 9am and leave them unattended (mainly on jetty's) as the staff will remove them and you are left without a bed. Great Swimming pools including the one with the 3 chutes Nice beds Towels and toiletries changed daily Tea and coffee in rooms Cold drinks refreshed in rooms daily Bottled water everywhere 24 hour all inclusive No pressure selling of trips, spas etc Additional Points Well worth a visit to Side on the bus @ 2.5TL each, takes no more than 10 mins The water sports attached to hotel is safer good value and staff funny and friendly More
