This place knows how to impress, with a beach, a waterpark and à la carte restaurants among its standout features.
The pool scene here takes in a huge lagoon pool and a waterpark with a section for adults and another for children. On the dining front, there’s a Turkish à la carte and a romantic seafood place.
The hotel’s location is spot on for exploring Side, which is only 5 minutes away by bus. Lots of people prefer to walk there, though – just head out onto the beach and enjoy the 25-minute stroll.

God Made Forest Man Made Resort
I and my family liked the Resort Theam,Landscape and its streetscape. It has one of the very attracting Aqw Parks. The "All-Inclusive" just experienced there but found it very smart. The Reception is so welcomed and effective. Ask for Denis when arrived there.More
Our first time at the Ali Bey and we couldn't have had a better experience. Absolutely brilliant. We stayed for 14 nights in Villa 11 and it was spotlessly clean, cool and spacious enough for my husband and I and our five year old. The food was lovely; we ate in the restaurants which were part of the all-inclusive package. Always blown away by the selection and variety of food available (from very basic kiddie-fayre right the way through to shish kebab, Turkish specialities, amazing salads, sushi, pizza, scores of gorgeous desserts...). The first week of our holiday the hotel wasn't quite full, and the second week they approached capacity which was around 1250 guests I believe. Although we noticed it seemed busier, we didn't really struggle too much to find a sun lounger by one of the pools. Because there is a choice of pools, I think it's easier as people move around and there's always the beach too. There's a family pool, which is huge and where the entertainment takes place. Then there's an adult only pool which was AMAZING. Also a pool closer to the beach, and smaller pools by the spa and also at the kids club. There's also the waterpark which is a perfect size. Not open to the general public, it's never heaving so has an exclusive feel. With six water slides which our son was able to pick and choose from, plus an amazing splashpark and 'lazy river' he was in heaven. The Ali Bey is huge but somehow it doesn't feel like that. The planting, landscaping and layout is such that you never have the feel of a massive resort. With the accommodation separated in to villas, there's a quiet peaceful atmosphere. It's also won awards for the grounds, which are packed full of amazing fruit trees and flowers. 'Shuttles' (golf buggies) regularly do the rounds so you don't have to walk far in the heat if you feel lazy! The entertainment is pretty gobsmacking. It's far better than anything we've experienced in a hotel before an opinion which was reinforced by some of the other guests we met. Full-on productions of The Lion King, Saturday Night Fever and Tarzan were three we particularly loved. The hotel employs a group of professional dancers mainly from Russia and South America. The children's club, 'Mima Club' was very very good. With facilities better than some nurseries I've seen, which included a mini-pool, restaurant, cinema room, soft play area and play park. Regular activities such as craft and pool games are held. And every night they came to the main restaurant to call the children to the mini-disco which our son loved. Yunus the children's entertainer is fantastic and deserves a special mention, as does Eral and all his talented team. All the bar and waiting staff were brilliant and to mention any would seem unfair, but I'm going to anyway! Lovely waiter Yusuf just made everything so special at mealtimes and made such a fuss of our son. We can't thank him enough. All in all the best family holiday we have ever been on and we can't wait to return in 2018!More
relaxing family holiday in a very calm and green area
Ali bey Resort Sorgun is a great choice for families and for older generation. The hotel infrastructure is very well planned, hotel architecture is attractive and luxury, rooms were perfectly designed. Restaurants, cafes, bars service are all in high quality. Animation team was very talented and the kids club team were quite helpful. The seaside area is very clean and sandy, the water is very clean and without rocks. Silence pool was amazing. The hotel area is very green and relaxing, creating a back-to-nature atmosphere. Guests can use the considerable facilities of the hotel, which include a number of large pools, a kids’ pool, a gym, tennis courts and other sports’ courts, as well as aquapark area with kids pool. The hotel is highly recommended. The hotel needs more alacarte restaurants and more interesting night events, as well as good DJ in the night club.More

DIFFERENT BUT OK
First of all the rooms... They are a little different than what you are accustomed to but the style is really good. They are spacious and very artistic. Air - con is working properly. Bathroom has a bathtub. Balcony is nice. Also thanks to the management staff for giving us a beautiful room according to our needs. They do the best with what they have. The MIMA Club is very nice. They present entertainment to the kids at this kindergarden like club . it looks secure, has its own fences and such. Pools are nice. +16 pool also very good and well placed. away from the beach, a bit distant from the regular pool and close to the restaurant and patisserie which is perfect Another thing I like was that they placed the water slides away from the general area. Sea is warm. very warm. no rocks ect. shallow and a bit hazy because of it. Beach is clean and it was alright. I heard it was fully booked but because it is a big establishment we can easily find a place at the beach, pools or the reataurant. Now lets come to the things which need improvement: First and foremost. The internet... it was a nightmare. Connection drops frequently, cant connect in balcony if the door is closed. Very very poor connection at the beach. Well actually everywhere. In my opinion they should do a little more investment to this. Putting a basic access point in the rooms is not gonna cut it. Shared signal and bad equipment makes the connection poor and unstable. no password in rooms, Sometimes you can connect to the room next to yours better than your own. (maybe the next room were also connecting to mine which was making my signal poor :) ) either way it wasnt fitting to the hotel Restaurant could have had an elevator and the food was not bad but a bit mediocre. Like I said, the establishment is different. For example, If you are looking for a reception like place where you can escape from the heat and sit down at an air conditioned big place, well you cant. The only place you can find like this is the patisserie which is a small building. this is because of the style of the hotel. but IF you need a place like this you wont find it. Also if you want a pier at the seaside., you are not gonna find one either. It makes the beach look bigger yeah but I would loved a pier which I can go anytime and make use of the wind coming from the sea. Sorgun at this time of the year was really hot, humid and barely windy. There was only one snack bar. Placed between the regular pool area and the right side beach. (if you divide the beach into 2 areas) I think it can be a bit bigger or the staff could be faster. just a bit of either would be better if they wouldnt mind. Staffwise, I think they do seasonal hiring. Because they are new to the facility, they dont know much, they only know their area of the facility. and keep in mind it is a big facility. House keeping also can be a bit better. f.e. if you see a sheet at which the baby had thrown up a bit, it can easily be replaced by them without asking for it. Unfortunately with the exception of the style of the room this hotel felt like a 4 star than a 5. So is it good as it is advertised? well not really but it is almost as good as its price when you compare it to other ones. I dont think I ll stay here again but it wasnt all that bad.More
Our second visit. A great quality hotel. OK so some staff don't speak perfect English, but who cares, we managed to communicate and got fabulous service. Disappointed that no cold towels or pool service of drinks this year, but it was much busier this year but still loads of space and never felt crowded. Food is excellent but dining experience in the main restaurant was not good in the evenings, largely due to the unwillingness of some guests to control their children's behaviour, running around and screaming and shouting, not good at all. Similar in the shows, children allowed by parents to run onto the stage when performers working, and driving around the front of the stage area in electric cars, chaos and not very safe. But overall a great relaxing holiday.More
