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. Gentlemen are asked to wear smart shorts or long trousers, smart polo or tee shirts and closed shoes in the evenings.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.

Really great - but a couple of small changes to mealtimes would improve it
We had a lovely holiday with friends and our children at Sensatori. The hotel was immaculate, rooms lovely (we opted for two bedrooms and got a surprise terrace with jacuzzi). The beach was super and the pools were one of it's best features. Our 16-month-old daughter adored the children's pool with its pirate slide and we made use of the very good creche in the afternoons and retreated to the adults only side of the hotel. The childcare facilities were first rate and very good value. The only thing which would have made a difference to us and our friends (we both had children aged under 2 at the time) would have been an alteration to the evening meal service time. It doesn't start until 6.30pm and that is quite late for a toddler to be eating, particularly as they were of the age where we could give them an early tea, do bath time and then put them down in their buggies asleep so that the adults could come back for a civilised evening meal. We could have still managed this, had the restaurant not closed at 9.30pm and its choice was being reduced by 9pm. Quite often we didn't get to have a dessert as they had already been cleared away by the time we got there. 9.30 would be okay-ish if it opened earlier for the children. It would make a difference for people with children of that age range if this could be reviewed.More
from the moment we arrived at midnight the staff at reception were lovely and sandwiches and drinks had been put on which was really appreciated. our room - well no complaints at all it was spotlessly clean with a very modern layout and all essentials. hairdryer. iron. ironing board and kettle provided. we had fresh towels sometimes twice daily (wow) and all our freeby toiletries were replenished daily as was our free minibar so enjoy! we were on the 5th floor which was lovely and quiet and had fab views of both the sea and pool. something we really appreciated was when we came back to our room and the cleaner had made towel swans and put fresh flowers and petals on the bed it was such a nice touch. food - well all I can say is you'll definitely not starve in fact you'll probably put half a stone on haha! the choice and quality is great there honestly is something for everyone. A visit to the patisserie for elevensies, well it'd be rude not to! The hotel is right on the beach where you can take as many beach towels as you like. one to dry off. one to lie on and one rolled as a pillow. the beach is pebbly at the waters edge so keep your flip flops on! The hotel sits on its own and there is nothing else around it so you are quite isolated but it is only 10 mins from either the town of Side or the markets where you can have a good barter, a bus runs every few mins right outside and only costs a couple of euros or ask at reception and they'll call you a taxi which again is only about 6 euros. overall the hotel is beautiful and the staff cannot do enough for you they are all lovely and nothing is too much trouble. We travelled as a couple and really appreciated how the hotel had adult only zones in eating, pool and beach areas a nice escape from little people! we had a fantastic week and would definitely stay here again. Tip - take euros rather than Turkish lira its less confusing. we took Turkish Lira which is accepted but because everything in the shops and markets was priced in euros we had to try and work out the conversion which was a pain!More

Another fantastic holiday!
We returned for a second time and we knew it would be equally enjoyable but it was much, much better! A fantastic hotel with superb rooms and genuinely friendly and helpful staff. The variety and food and drink is superb and everything is prepared and served to the very highest standard. I can't think of a single negative. Genuinely looking forward to our next visit that I booked on the day we returned.More

Truly Amazing Holiday. Well deserved 5*****
Another review where you won't find a single negative. And as some readers may see from my previous reviews, I am not easily pleased! But in the case of this Sensatori resort myself and my family couldn't be happier with our stay.
Standards throughout the hotel are excellent. Food, Service, cleanliness, entertainment all excellent. The experience as a whole led to a family holiday that has given us many fond memories and a longing to return next season regardless of variations in price, we will start saving now!
Reservations about staying in the last week of the season were unfounded. Worries that the hotel might be on the wind down were pleasantly and instantly reassured. Yes the hotel was quiet however I likened it to being completely spoilt for choice and we certainly were throughout our stay.
This review is written from a family side perspective as the layout of the hotel is cleverly organised into family and adults only areas.
The restaurants in addition to the Divan al a carte Buffet were all very, very good. Our favourite was the Italian, however they all offered us wonderful food, attentive service and friendly faces. Our young son made several friends with the waiters throughout our stay. Dining = A
The room we had booked was a 2 bedroom swim up room. For our needs as a couple with a small child it made perfect sense. We like to have time together whilst our son sleeps and the set up of the room made this entirely possible and safe for us to sit on the patio area in front of his room and have a few drinks whilst keeping an eye on our son using a baby monitor. There were 2 doors with locks which safeguarded any possibility for unsupervised wondering, especially as it was a swim up room. The swim up pool was warm when you got in and was heated. Rooms = A
A varied range of activities were available throughout our stay. The pools were a little cold but it's November so it's to be expected and didn't deter us at all. The fitness team were just brilliant. As a fitness professional it was great to see such a dedicated and engaging team...shout out to Shakeel and the team.
Our son enjoyed play house live nearly as much as we did! Another great team of entertainers, very professional, very talented lot. Things to do = A+
We made use of the Sensatori nursery during our stay. It was quiet and our son received a lot of attention and had a lot of fun with the Nursery team who again really need a big shout out as they work very hard with the children and are extremely engaging. We would highly recommend at least the team of 2015, thank you ladies!! Children's activities and Nursery = A+.
We hope this review has provided any readers and honest review of this hotel. For our family and myself specifically it's the kind of hotel that I would return to in a heartbeat and we fully intend to next year. That's a first for us!
Thank you to all the staff at Hotel. Thank you Thomson.More
First visit to this hotel and can only say wow. Worth a holiday. Staff amazing from housekeeping to reception. Nothing was too much trouble. Attention to detail amazing. Food excellent. A walk along beach to Side is well worth it. If you cannot walk back local bus service is efficient and cheap.More
