The Hotel Belcekiz Beach offers a prime spot on the beach and a brilliant à la carte restaurant*.
This place is right on Olu Deniz Beach. A few steps through the hotel’s gardens will get you to the pebbly shore, which is a world-famous landing strip for paragliders.
The complex is set among attractive gardens, with Mount Babadag providing a cinematic backdrop. Rooms are scattered in blocks throughout the grounds, and colourful bougainvillea bursts across their balconies.
Stayed at Hotel Belcekiz Aug 2014. Staff lovely & very helpful, but this is not a platinum 4star, the main resturant, was very busy & felt like school dinners, we were rushed as they like to close at 9.30. Main pool is terrible, over crowed & noisey, with football showing most of the day. Most people staying at the Hotel were very scruffy, lots of vest & football shirts, lots of tattoos.....lovely!!!!!More
As good as they say
The one thing that really stands out from this hotel is the Staff, ranging from the managers to the cleaners and I say this in no particular order.
The good points are the food,the location and once again the staff.
The not so good points are the entertainment (almost non existent unless you like a few dancers and acrobats) and the accommodation,which although adequate and spotlessly clean was a little cramped especially the bathroom.
I would highly recommend the Hotel and will be returning in the near futureMore

Another fabulous holiday.
We have just returned from our seventh visit to Club Belcekiz Beach Hotel, and have already booked to return next October. As usual we were looked after superbly by all the hotel staff, many of whom have become friends over the past years. The hotel location right on the beach is perfect, the surrounding resort is small but lively and friendly, the sunset is just amazing, the food is delicious and the drinks plentiful. Previous comments about the bedrooms and bathrooms being small doesn't affect the enjoyment of your holiday as you don't spend that much time in your room, they are perfectly adequate, and kept spotlessly clean. The young people who look after you in the bars and the restaurants are full of enthusiasm and happy to chat and joke with you if that's what you want, we tried out our basic Turkish, much to their amusement! Otherwise they are happy to just serve you with great efficiency. We tried our hand at French Boules in the garden this year, great fun with J.E.R.R.Y, Nico and East. The evening entertainment was very professional, then onto the Plaza Bar or Pool Bar for all sort of shenanigans from Karaoke to quizzes, Club Dance, Bingo Bongo (???) and generally enjoying the atmosphere and balmy evenings. One tip... If you sit at the bar in Plaza Bar, be prepared for you drink to be refilled while you are looking the other way, whether you wanted it or not, such is the efficiency of the staff! Thank you Burak and Ramoss ;-). I must also say thank you to Tarik, Zeynel, Ozzy, Eto'o, Osman, Nihal, Emene and all the other staff who strive to make your holiday just perfect. We always go at the end of the season but we never feel that the staff have lost momentum, even though they work extremely hard all season. Looking forward to next October, and might even squeeze a cheeky week in May just because we can!! More

Lovely Hotel and Staff, just a pity there is no evening Dress Code.
We have just returned from the Club Belcekiz Beach Hotel having transfered from the Thomsons Celebration Cruise Ship.
The hotel and staff are great but we did think it was a great shame that there was no evening dress code at all. It would not be unusual to see a lady looking nice with a man in board shorts and a scruffy T shirt. We really don't get it in a hotel such as this. It wasn't just youngsters either, we thought they should insist on at least casual shirt and long trousers.
We go on Thomsons Cruises because they are not stuffy insisting men wear jackets, ect like some Cruise lines do ,but this did seem a bit odd at the Belzekiz Beach to have no dress code at all.
Back to staff and I must mention waitresses Roneta and Nihail and Ozzy who were all so lovely.
Also Emre at the Anex [Adult] pool bar and Sabri at the Main pool bar. It is hard to single out particular staff because they were all exceptional and very efficient, plates were taken away almost as soon as they were finished..On one evening we were invited to the General Managers Cocktail Party where all the restaurant staff put on a little dance routine and the managers come around and talk to guests.
Food was excellant and much better than our other trip to Icmelar,Turkey in 2012. I am on a wheat /Gluten free and like plain food. They had plenty of choice for me and even gluten free crispbread at breakfast. If you like Bananas , just ask and they will provide them, they are not kept on the buffet.
All the paragliders landing in front of the hotel are wonderful to watch and we had a great time just looking at them.
The evening entertainment was mainly dancing with only one night of live music. the dancing was very good, but a bit too much of the same really.
Our garden room was in the anex over the road from the main hotel and the adult pool was nearby to us. It was lovely and peaceful. if a little cold in the water.
We didn't frequent the main beach, so didn't encounter the last reviewer's problem of nasty things in the sea. Twice we went along to Sugar Beach, about 10-15 mins walk, we didn't bother waiting for the courtesy bus. It is a beautiful, idiliic beach and the water was a lovely temperature and very clear and clean with lots of little fish all around.
We took a boat trip from Olu Deniz, it was from 11am until 5.00pm and cost 25 Turkish Lira each [about Â£7 including lunch of fish or chicken with rice!!!] Fantastic value from Volcan 4 and a lovely day out. We visited Butterfly Valley but saw no Butterflys and the waterfall was hard to get to and not much to speak of. The other visits on the trip were nice and relaxing and one in particular I shall never forget. St Nicolas Island, the last stop I ended up going onshore by myself, we had 45 mins before the boat was due to go and coming down I lost my way for a bit.
I did panic but eventually got back to the boat with 4 minutes to spare !!, my husband and friends were very worried about me too. It was great place though and I took lots of photos, just don't go by yourself unless you have a great sense of direction.More
Good hotel but not really our scene
Everything written about this hotel is accurate but overall I have to say that although we really enjoyed our holiday a lot of the "attractions" were not really to our taste.
To put this into context we have travelled widely and stayed in many all inclusive hotels but mainly in the Caribbean and Egypt, we have visited Greece and Turkey many times but usually stay B & B or self catering. We have visited Olu Deniz twice before the most recent time being 8 years ago.
We stayed in the annex in a ground floor room which was ok but felt a little dark and cramped although it was a lovely quite location.
We mainly used the relax pool as the main pool area was very busy and noisy. This area suited us as it was very quiet but friendly and we were well looked after by Emre - particularly liked "ice cream time" mid afternoon.
Our main disappointment was the restaurant - don't get me wrong the food was very good but I am not a fan of buffets. We also like to eat fairly late in the evening but the restaurant closed dead on 9pm when everything vanished so you really had to start your meal by 7.30pm to enjoy a relaxed meal before the deadline. We ended up eating out three times out of seven days but ate twice at the Al la carte which was very good but a bit noisy from the nearby plaza bar.
We were also a bit disappointed with the evening entertainment but having been on a cruise the previous week maybe we were expecting too much. One of the dance shows was very good but didn't rate the others. The Plaza Bar was the main venue on an evening and was often very busy and noisy, there were also many people smoking in this bar and it was impossible to sit anywhere and not be bothered by smoke.
As I said before we did enjoy this holiday and if you like a lively hotel with lots going on and plenty to eat and drink you will love this hotel but I think we will stick to our smaller B & B type holidays in the future.More
