This beachfront hotel comes with 4 swimming pools, 6 restaurants, and a stylish bar designed by Philip Treacy.
Sensatori Resort Turkey’s biggest selling point is its location. It’s right on a gold-sand beach, and just footsteps from Sorgun Forest, which covers more than 400 hectares.
You can choose from 4 swimming pools, and take your pick from activities like tennis, pilates and watersports. There’s just as much choice when it comes to dining. The hotel’s 6 restaurants showcase national dishes, gourmet cuisine, and everything in between.
Designer Philip Treacy was the brains behind the hotel’s Butterfly Bar. Here, you can sip a Sensatori Mystery – vodka, sparkling wine, cherry juice and strawberry – in a funky booth, while looking up at a rainbow of hanging baubles.Read more ››
The buffet restaurant serves up dishes from around the world for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Remember the dress code here, gentlemen are asked to wear long trousers at dinner. Highchairs are available.
At the Play House, daytime activities are anything but ordinary thanks to the Silly Science Lab, Crazy Kitchen and the Arts and Crafts Zone. Evenings, meanwhile, bring parties and movies, plus you can pay a little extra for sleepovers. Finally, because all staff hold UK-accredited childcare qualifications, you're guaranteed peace of mind. Free supervised sessions for 3 to 12 year-olds are available 6 days a week for an hour or two. Also, you can use the facilities as a family with our special ‘stay and play’ sessions, available 7 days a week.
2-bedroom family room with whirlpool sleeps up to 5 with two separate bedrooms. The master bedroom has a double bed and a single sofa bed, and the 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, with a plasma TV in both. There's also an iPod docking station, kettle, and an iron and board.

Visited hotel in sept. Was 1st time ever in Turkey but we really enjoyed it. Cant understand the few bad reviews of this hotel even though everyone is entitled to their own opinion. We have stayed in Sensatori's before and really enjoyed them. Not disappointed this time either. Room was super and kept spotless and view was great. Had a prob with the electrics which was fixed within 10 mins. Food was lovely-perfect fillet mignon in Aqua and wonderful fish dishes in Ocean. It was rather cramped around adult pool but problem solved by using beach where the lad in the drinks shack was great. Our only problem was access to the pools which is the same at the other Sensatori's too-they need a hand rail fixing to the stone steps to enable anyone a bit unsteady to get into water ok. Thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment too. Thanks to all the staff for making our stay so enjoyable.
Would have no hesitation in returning and can understand the folks that come back regularly. More
Amazing hotel, staff and so good for family
This was our first holiday for over 10 years and travelling with a severely Autistic child we were anxious - and we had no reason to be.
The hotel is 1 hour transfer from the airport, and if you've booked with Thomson you have a coach just for the Sensatori hotel so no other drop offs, just straight there.
The staff were very understanding and asked if there was anything they could do to help, as were the Thompson reps.
The hotel is spotless, from the grounds keepers, cleaners, maids, waiting on staff - they do not stop. The rooms are well equipped and all with amazing views of the Sea. We were there the beginning of October for 7 nights and it was still really warm every day.
The staff were amazing with both my children and even at meal times, if there was nothing there that they didn't like, the chef was more than happy to make them something.
As for the food, the choice is unbelievable at all meal times, in all of the restaurants. The drinks are amazing both alcoholic and non alcoholic. The only thing we found out before travelling is that the hotel does not have cordial so we took some of our own for our disabled son as he doesn't like fizzy drinks or drink milk.
The Cabanas are amazing, and well worth paying the extra for a special day treat. We had a birthday celebration whilst we were there and arranged a birthday cake to be at the Cabana and the staff all sang happy birthday.
We wished we had booked for longer than 7 nights and we are looking forward to returning to the hotel again.More

Worth a visit
A wonderful fortnight in a hotel with an ethos that nothing is too much trouble. The main restaurant had an extensive selection of meals that catered for all tastes. A good selection of book only restaurants, the Italian was my favourite. The well kept gardens offered a pleasant distraction. The pools and snack bars were excellent. The private beach was well kept. The staff were exemplary always willing to assist. The evening entertainment was always well attended due to the variety quality of the shows. Will definately return. :~)More
You'll have to be super fussy to be disappointed here - a great hotel!
Just returned from a lovely week in the Turkish sun!
I'll start by saying this is a GREAT hotel and we had a GREAT holiday- I will still give summary of all good and 'bad' aspects of the hotel (although the bad aren't really bad, more me being overly picky and honest!)
Thomson coach transfers were Sensatori only which makes the 70min transfer time a little better as no other pick ups/drop offs. Asked by the Thomson rep on both transfers to tip the driver which I find I little irritating but hey, you didn't have to do it.
The outside main entrance of the hotel isn't all that grand compared to other 4/5* hotels I've visited but it's not like you need it to be.
Check in was fast with a welcome drink. I was a little disappointed with the food available on arrival as due to flight time and local time difference we had missed lunch. But that said it wasn't overly long until the buffet opened for dinner.
Luggage delivered to room fairly promptly, and bellboy quite clearly expected a tip. I personally would have liked to have been shown to the room as it wasn't the easiest to find but we got there eventually!
We had a family (sliding door) swim up room which was excellent! The rooms are very tastefully decorated and nice and modern. Nice touches such as slippers, robes, free safe, two flat screen tv's, iPod docking station, kettle, 'mood lighting'!, nice big fridge, lots of hangers in big wardrobe space, big deep bath, nice cot for my 8mth old, comfy sun loungers on the terrace. Downsides to room - slightly dodgy lock on the safety/bug screen on the terrace doors, king size bed had 2 single duvets instead of one king size- odd? (See- I'm being picky!)
Pools- the pools (including swim up) were probably the cleanest I've ever seen on holiday but they were rather on the cold side, even the children's pool was fresh! I hear the sea was warmer so maybe we should have tried that! Lots of sun beds which didn't seem to get reserved at sunrise like other hotels I've been to!
Beach- I'm not a big beach person and this beach wasn't the nicest I've seen but it is private which is always good. And lots of sun beds from what I saw.
Kids club/playhouse- only used for unsupervised stay&play sessions with 8m old but what I saw of these facilities and staff was excellent.
Divan buffet used mostly for breakfast and dinner, and was plentiful and varied. Service from waiters was good/fine- nothing extraordinary.
Here is the maybe one real bad thing- I was sick once during my stay which I think was most likely food related on the basis it came and went pretty quickly and my husband or daughter didn't 'catch' it. While annoying I'd never let this affect my opinion of a hotel as it's kind of just one of those things when it comes to buffets I think?!
Aqua pool bar- we had lunch here every day which was really good.
Al a carte- these restaurants are difficult to book even when the hotel wasn't full to capacity. We had to cancel our booking at Saffran due to my illness which was a shame. We are at the olive Italian which was lovely although the service wasn't the best... but it seemed this was due to one waiter running the show himself! We didn't try the seafood restaurant as not big fans of fish, nor did we book the two pay for restaurants - I didn't book an All incl holiday to have to pay for my dinner! Anyway book al a carte as early in the morning as you can or you might miss out!
What we saw of the kids entertainment was very good!
The piano playing/singing in the lounge bar in the evenings was very good.
We didn't see much of the show lounge entertainment as it didn't start until 9.45 which is way too late when on holiday with a baby!
Didn't get chance to use the spa but it looked lovely! Nor did we use any sport/leisure facilities but they looked excellent too.
I think that's all the main things!
Would I recommend this hotel - yes!
Would I go back to this hotel - probably not as I like to try different places and this hotel wasn't quite amazing enough to change that! But it has made me curious to want to try the other Sensatori's! I just wish they weren't quite so expensive!More
