We were 11 years in Turkey, for summer holiday, 3 of them in Palm Wings Beach Resort Didim. After stauing there, we looked for another same location, maybe better, but we couldn't find it yet.
The huge surroundings, the great bungalows, a splendid pool, a perfect beach and sea, unique coast and garden, amaizing restaurant and excelent staf, made Palm Wings Didim our No. 1 choice for summer holiday.
The Club is so huge, you will spend half first day to see it all. Tennis in the morning, quiet pool, so much green, vegetation, flowers, trees, that makes your stay as "like home"!
A La Cart restaurants are great, Turkish Night was our favorite evening, with special Turkish menu at the main restaurant, with fantastic show after, with Turkish Dance, Belly Dancer, etc.
Other nights, live music near the pool, dances and lovely atmosphere.
Didim is such a nice seaside town with a lot of history nearby and modern facilities, united in an unique feeling of the good direction Turkish tourism is goint to.
We will come back for sure! Try it yourself !!!More
Good hotel for couples / families with teenagers or small children
Just returned from a 10 day family holiday with our 2 children aged 12 and 3. We arrived at the hotel approx. 3am Turkish time after a 90 minute coach ride from the airport and after completing some forms at reception were taken by buggy car to our Bungalow.
The bungalow itself was spacious, we had bunk-bed and a large terrace (although we hardly used it), the bed's were a bit hard and the air-conditioning unit although very effective at keeping the room cool was a little noisy and as it was situated about the double bed we were unable to leave on overnight as it blew directly onto us.
Towels were changed and beds made daily, although don't know how often the sheets were changed and we started the holiday with 4 hand towels and by the end had only 1. Water was supplied and left in the fridge.
The pool area had plenty of sunbeds, there were still plenty to be found at 9am, although if you want to be in prime location you will need to get up a little earlier. I got up most mornings and went to the pool just after 8 (for a little me time) and had a wide choice of where to sit. The pool area was kept very clean, no complaints there.
We only visited the beach once, it's more suited for couples or older children, there wasn't a lot of room for building sandcastles and the beach area was very small, however the jetty was a larger area and good for Sunbathing.
Bar and entertainment staff were very good, I tried the aqua aerobics with Yana it was a great way to cool down and exercise as well.
We always found something to eat in the restaurants and snack bars, although a little limited for the fussy kids, it was very busy in the main restaurant and a bit chaotic at times, people rushing about. It could take you a while also to find a clear table at busy times.
I unfortunately had to take a trip to see the doctor on the last day due to experiencing an allergic reaction and could not fault the service at all. The on-site medic did not have the correct training to deal with this, so arranged for a car to come from Alkinkum from the main medical centre and after a short stay I was treated and driven back in time for tea, the staff there were very friendly and efficient.
Overall we had a lovely time, just a few points that let it down and these were: The lack of hot water, some days the showers, no matter how long you let it run for were not very warm. On some days the maid did not arrive till 5, which meant we were rushing to get ready for tea and out clothes airier fell off the wall on the 1st day and was never repaired. The restaurant, if you wanted freshly cooked meats / fish / pasta there was always a big queue.
Lastly If you get chance, take a trip into Altinkum to a restaurant called Gusto's, great food and price, highly recommended.More

A perfect escape.
We've just returned from a week long stay at Palm Wings and it really was lovely. The place was set in lovely grounds which were very well maintained by the gardening staff. The bar staff & restaurant staff were always friendly and helpful, our room was always spotlessly clean. But the real jewel in the staff has to be the animation team who work tirelessly to ensure that everyone has a great time. We didn't participate in very much of the programme but just watching them exhausted me! They were absolutely fantastic & deserve recognition.
We spent most of our time in and around the main pool. We always found a sunbed easily, the towels provided were an added bonus to cover up some tender skin if needed! The slides kept our son (11) amused, as did the pool itself. Even with an assortment of inflatables floating around it never seemed over populated.
Our bungalow room was perfect, loads of storage so we could unpack & hide away the cases easily, a large double for us & a single for our son. A small fridge was a blessing, as was a safe in the room, and of course, the air conditioning. The bathroom was great, although as a larger lady, the shower cubicle was a little awkward to get into & out of and our son did bruise his knee quite painfully on the mixer tap which stuck out quite a lot. Still, can't blame the hotel for me being chunky & my son being clumsy! The hallway was great for storing the lilo and the balcony/terrace was lovely for hanging out the towels & swimwear.
The food.....well, being a veggie I always struggle and I'm afraid to say that we were all uninspired by the evening meals in the main restaurant. Breakfast was always fine, we had lunch from the snack bar every day, but the evening meals were a let down so we ended up eating at a local bar a couple of nights. However, it's not that the food was bad, it simply wasn't to our taste. Quite a few things in the salad bar area looked lovely but they weren't labelled and as such, I erred on the side of caution. My suggestion would be that perhaps they could label the food a little better as I'm sure I'm not the only one who felt this.
All in all, we had a cracking holiday. We can't fault the resort staff, it was lovely. The Thomson reps were great too. The airport transfer was a bit hard going but there was some beautiful scenery on the way to & from the hotel which helped to take the edge off the tiredness/boredom.
We don't tend to return to the same place twice, the world is so big. However, I would definitely recommend the Palm Wings Beach Resort to anyone looking for a relaxing break in the sun.More
Loved this place!
Actually visited May 2013 and will probably return here in the next few years.
It's a beautiful place to relax with slides for the kids in the main pool and a lovely private beach which is shallow enough for the kids to paddle and play while you watch. There is also a snack / drinks bar here too serving the same as the snack bar by the pool. Kids loved the unlimited ice cream.
All the food was excellent for an all inclusive but definitely make the most of the ala carte as it stops the monotony of the 'canteen' and it's nice to get a meal put down to you all at the same time.
The grounds are well kept and the bungalows are beautiful if a little on the small side. Ours was right by the pool and bar as well as the coffee machine so getting a drink took about 30 seconds.
Animation and kids club team were brilliant. The guy who sang at the pool bar in the evening was so bad he was good and provided a few laughs for us - honestly though the evening entertainment was quite poor but as a family we make our own entertainment and that didn't bother us.
The only other bad point is the transfer time from the airport which is quite a drag after a 4 1/2 hour flight but it wouldn't put us off returning because once you get here it's all worth it.
Linekars about 15 mins walk away is nice for a breakfast and Vista on the beach is good for an evening meal or a cocktail- they'll also pick you up and drive you back to the hotel.
If you've booked to go here you're in for a treat!More
