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.
I stayed in this hotel with my girlfriends family earlier this year, and all I can say is that it was excellent. Everything about this hotel is great, the staff, the rooms, the entertainment, and much more. The only downside I can think of is that the location isn't that great, it's a good couple of miles walk down the beach to get into side, which is a great place to visit the ruins of the ancient town. A taxi only costs around â¬10 to get back down to the hotel(ask for a price before you get in the taxi). The hotel actually has its own beach too, so it's not necessary that you have to go elsewhere to lounge if you don't want to! There is also jet skiing and parasailing available on the hotel beach, definitely worth the money if you get chance, and it's not actually that expensive. Food at this hotel is great, lots of choice in the buffet restaurant, and if you get the opportunity you should definitely book into the other restaurants, unfortunately we found the seafood restaurant to be disappointing as most of the fish available was raw, there was little choice for cooked fish. The French restaurant is amazing(paid extra for this), but if you get the chance I would really recommend you try it as the food is excellent, 5* quality steaks. There are many other restaurants that are definitely worth a try though. The entertainment is also great at this hotel, many things to do if you have kids to entertain, beach volleyball, archery, football, and many others. We've stayed in a couple of other Sensatori hotels over the last few years and they are all pretty amazing. More
A lovely holiday
This is a lovely hotel that I'd happily return to. I would particularly highlight the fantastically helpful and happy staff, the relaxed atmosphere and the high quality of the food - an enormous and consistently good selection and probably the best I've experienced for healthy options alongside indulgent treats.
The spa and gym are first class and I highly recommend the treatments - easily the best massage experience of the many that I've enjoyed.
We visited during October and stayed in a twin room in the adult section of the hotel.
We've stayed at the Tenerife Sensatori and in comparison I'd have to say we preferred Turkey - it's smaller and less glamorous but wins for us because of the friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and the superior food selection and quality. Tenerife operate FB+ and Turkey is AI so much better value if you enjoy a drink and especially if you enjoy cocktails.
Some points I'd highlight for other travellers to consider are:
- the hotel permits smoking on the covered restaurant terrace during all meals. The tables are fairly close together and there's no way of knowing whether you're going to end up sitting next to a smoker during your meal
- the main buffet restaurant has an adults only section but the bookable full service restaurants all allow children
- the sunbeds are close together and even during October the towel throwers were out in force marking their territory for the day
- keep your wits about you when you leave as there was no announcement as to which coach was taking which travellers to the airport and we literally had to fight our way through the door in order to ask the rep
- the restaurant booking process isn't satisfactory and it is difficult to get a table
We had one big problem that had absolutely nothing at all to do with this lovely hotel .... the flights!
For some reason, Thomson outsource some of their flights to Thomas Cook. This seems strange to me as in doing so they lose control of quality and customer satisfaction. Our previous Sensatori travel with Thomson has been exceptionally good - the Thomas Cook service was exceptionally poor.
Thomson systems do not interact with Thomas Cook systems. This became apparent when we arrived at the airport to find that the assisted boarding I'd confirmed via Thomson hadn't been arranged. The woman at the assisted boarding desk at Bristol airport was incredibly rude and evidently didn't care and didn't even have the good manners to extend an apology. It wasn't a great start having to explain to my 82yo Mum that we had to walk to the gate. To compound the insult we weren't seated together. The seating arrangement is pitifully uncomfortable and all the more so when you've been seated next to a stranger. The food, despite being endorsed by James Martin was inedible, even by airline standards.
When we attended the welcome meeting we were 'sold' the attraction of extra room seats - upon enquiring I was told that for travellers relegated to Thomas Cook this was not actually an option as, once again, 'the systems don't talk to each other'. I think Thomson have made a very bad decision regarding the outsourcing of flights to TC.
So, in summary, visit this hotel - it's an absolute joy.... but make sure you don't book a package that offers you Thomas Cook flights as you won't benefit from the excellent Sensatori experience and it will take the edge off your expensive trip.More

what an amazing holiday at an amazing hotel . the hotel is absolutly spotless and cannot fault the staff they couldnt do enough for you . so relaxing i cant believe any one could be negative about any thing here this is far better than the sensatori Egypt the food standard and choice is first class as was the service we received . taxis are needed to visit any where (unless u like taking a bus) but they are availablle across the road and prices are on a board so you know how much its going to cost .the guy on the beach ran around all day getting towels and sorting sunbeds and umbrellas ! even the beach was spotless as were the toilets nearby . for those wanting wifi its free and accessable everywhere including the beach ! if you want a chilled relaxing hotel where the staff cant do enough for you this is the place to go we loved it so much we have booked for next sept already ! it was also good that as a couple there were areas for adults only even on the beach cant wait to return next year xxMore

- Rooms were modern, sleek, clean and comfortable.
- Great staff. Very friendly. Always happy to help.

- Pool - often busy, but still decent.
- Beach - lovely. Sandy beach, always beds available, a drinks station on hand, a 40 minute stroll to Side.

In short, we had a great two weeks here. As a couple or as a family, this place does the job very well.More
