This hotel wins points for its beachfront setting. It’s got a great pool scene, too.
The Tropical has pine-covered mountains to the rear and Sarigerme’s pebble-and-sand beach to the front. And the centre’s shops, bars and restaurants are within walking distance – it takes about 20 minutes.
The property has recently been treated to a complete refurbishment. It means you can look forward to smart, modern interiors, like in the rooms, where a contemporary colour scheme of teal and cool grey has been used. From May 2016 this hotel will become part of the Family Life collection.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. One visit per stay to an à la carte restaurant.
Unlimited locally produced alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks served by the glass, including beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks, tea and coffee 10.00-24.00.
Snacks 11.30-16.30. Ice-cream served for 2hours a day. Turkish pancakes 11.00-17.00.
You'll find international buffet foods here to help yourself to for breakfast and lunch. There's also an al fresco dining area. Highchairs are available. A smart casual dress code is required here, no shorts or swimwear.
Designed for three to 11-year-olds, our Kids’ Clubs offer two hours of activities, six days a week. We’ve split the Clubs into specific age groups, too, so that all activities are tailored to suit your little ones. And all the sessions have a theme, so there’s lots of fun and games in store. You’ll find nearly all the Kids’ Club sessions are free, with evening activities available at a small charge. For your peace of mind, all of our Kids’ Club staff are trained to UK standards and undergo relevant checks.
This pool seems like it's never ending. It's a fantastic size and has two waterslide on a separate island and landing into the pool. The whole surrounding area is covered with tropical palms, sunbeds with parasols and marquee tents.
Double select room sleeps up to 3, with a double bed or twin beds, and a lounge area with a double sofa-bed. There is also a DVD player and mini-fridge. Image shown is the planned appearance for Summer 2015.

I find it hard to find any fault with our family holiday, I was sad to go home and will definitely be returning!
Thanks to all at Suntopia Tropical for making our stay truly memorable!!!
A few pointers for anyone planning on making a visit:
make sure you go to the Dalyan Mud Baths, it was the most fabulous trip, Adele our guide was fantastic!
Take a trip into Fethyia, it's a 55 minute taxi ride but worth it, Â£60, and the taxi driver waits for you while you explore for 2 hours.
When we return to Turkey I won't be taking Lira, local shops and markets are only interested in Â£ and Euro!
Make sure you take a walk into Sarigerme, you can get some real bargains! I managed to get both my daughters Ugg boots (not genuine but very good fakes) for Â£5 a pair!!!
On the Thomson website it states that men are required to wear long trousers in the restaurant, this isn't the case, everyone wore shorts!
You are able to visit the Al a carte restaurants whilst staying at the hotel, 1 go in each for the duration of your stay, Saray (Turkish) was my favourite by far! But all excellent.
In the Olympos restaurant there is a separate section for children to eating together. Our daughter did this most mornings at breakfast! A fantastic added extra in my opinion! It's all set up like a pirate boat, the children can help them selves to drinks and food, with parents able to join them if they wish, although the tables are quite small!!!
Whilst staying our youngest daughter got stung by a Wasp, the medical centre within the hotel were amazing, and couldn't do enough to ensure that she was ok, they made the whole process with travel insurance and excess payments very simple, we really were very impressed!
You must visit this hotel! The photos on the website don't do it justice! I'm adding a few personal favourites of my own!

Nice hotel friendly staff
Just visited for a quick week break, hotel really nice, clean. Plenty to do all the usual water sports etc, all inclusive drinks (local alcohol) served until midnight, lots of bars, food really good and a good selection also. 3 Al la carte restaurants you can book 1 visit to each free during your stay (all inclusive guests) at 2300-2400 the main restaurant opens again for "midnight feast" serving limited hot food, a nice touch if your peckish after drinking or your on a late flight home. Lots of children around and it seems there is plenty for them to do, main pool has 2 slides, couple of toddler pools dotted around, and also quite pools if you want peace and quite during your sunbathing. Beach 100 yard stroll from hotel
Sarigermi is the local town, a gentle 15 minute stroll from the hotel, but of course you can get taxis etc well worth a visit selling usual bargains clothes bags shoes etc, plenty of bars if you fancy a change from your hotel.
No hesitation recommending. More
Stayed here 17th June 2015 till the 24th June, arrival was fast and the luggage was brought to the room straight away. Pools was always clean and the relax pool was amazing! If you want sinners around the main pool you need to get up pretty early as it was always busy. Food was amazing always a different theme every night which was delightful. The beach area could do with some improvements as it was very pebbly. The all inclusive drink where ok, the blue vodka is delicious!! The lobby bar staff where amazing!! Went into the town a couple of times and booked a trip with basket travel to the mud baths and turtle beach this was Â£20 and worth every penny!! The only down fall to this hotel is the entertainment there is no entertainment throughout the day for adults and none at night either especially whilst we was there it rained most days. But even though it rained entertainment could be improved a lot! Also, I don't advise anyone to get a henna tattoo, these are not real henna tattoos and I was really disappointed after spending Â£20 pound on one and 3 days later it came off!! Also the lunch buffet was the same everyday and I think it should be covered as there was lots of flys on it. But all together I would say this hotel was a 3* and could be a higher star if the entertainment wasn't so poorMore

Just returned from 11 night stay and all really enjoyed (husband and 23month old son) it was our honeymoon but as bringing the little one wanted somewhere nice but with a family vibe which is what we got.
The rooms are lovely.. Although the split level concrete steps gave me a few hair raising moments with the little one! We had room looking out onto main road but noise not a problem and had great view over mountains especially when we had some spectacular storms!
Pools all lovely.. If you want to be front row at the main activity pool I would presume you need to be up early early!! However we alternated pools and beach and were quite happy to have beds on the grass in the peace! Great fun water slides for all ages. As mentioned in other reviews the areas around the pools are SO slippy I cannot emphasise how slippy!! We had some good pool shoes for little one but still very slippy just to keep in mind!
Beach was nice.. Very stoney going into the water but once in ok and lovely and warm! Plenty of beds and umbrellas.
Food was nice.. Different theme each evening and also kids corner was useful when nothing my son fancied from the adult section.. Breakfast was the best! And we loved the salad and toasties at the chill out bar! Also must visit the pancake hut!!!
Staff all very friendly around the hotel.. Rooms cleaned daily (expect weds) I wouldn't say exactly our room was cleaned it seemed just new towels and bed made as the floor always made our feet black.. But they have so many rooms to look after I guess can be hard to keep up.
We walked into sarigerme it took about 20mins. Nice for a change of scenery.
The swap shop is excellent!! Things are left from guests checking out for current guests to help themselves we had a few bits including baby powder and some pool toys and left quite a few bits in there when we left.. Great idea!!
All in all really enjoyed the holiday I don't know if we would go back as felt a little out of the way.
