Impressive sea views and a great choice of pools make a winning combination here.
This place has a tranquil setting, with mountains rising above and the blue waters of Akyarlar Bay beckoning below. Walkways lead down to the sea through the gardens, which are dotted with rattan sunloungers.
There’s a great pool scene here, with sections for activities, relaxation and waterslides. Food-wise, there’s an array of restaurants, including a seafood à la carte, and there are plenty of bars to go around as well.

Just back from a week in the hotel. It was our first time in Turkey having been to many different places around the world we didnt know what to expect. The welcome was outstanding. The hotel is outstanding, along with the food and especially the entertainment. We had a fabulous time. The evening entertainment was pretty good but the daily activities were really good fun to be involved in. Location is really good with a short walk to the local harbour to get a boat trip out for the day. The water slides at the pool are really good fun. Safety was maintained daily by having a lifeguard on duty which was quite comforting as we had children with our party. The rooms are a good size and the sea views are outstanding. All in all a very good holiday. I am looking to return there next year but it seems First Choice have taken it from their brochure.......I will have to find another way to get there.More
Travelling as party of 10 aged 5 to 70 we stayed at Kefaluka at the beginning of June. Quite a long transfer from the airport, but on arrival, check in was quick and hassle free. The rooms were clean, if a little bit small and almost all have lovely sea view. (The mini bar and toiletries are regularly restocked also) The food choice and quality in the buffet restaurant were excellent at every meal. So much so, that we didn't try any of the other restaurants. No problem getting a table either. The animation team are very friendly and work tirelessly during the day and evening to entertain guests, and although they ask if you want to join in the various activities, they're not pushy about it. To keep the kids entertained, there is a small bowling alley, games room, and even shooting,which our 2 teenagers enjoyed. All cost a few pounds but money well spent! There are lots of areas to sit, both inside and outside of the hotel. My personal favourite was outside the lobby bar. Massive, comfortable couches, waiter service, fantastic view watching the sun go down... heaven! As for the drinks, beer is fine, red wine not too bad. Spirits not great, but this is more or less what I have come to expect having visited Turkey several times and been to several different resorts. Pool area is great. Spotlessly clean, loads of room and always loungers available. There are slides for the little ones and a nice bar for the not so little ones! We didn't like the beach much because it was sand and shingle and very stony entering the water. However, my husband and son did a bit of snorkelling over by the pier and enjoyed that. If you can put up with the stones, the water is beautifully clear, with lots of fish. All in all, we had a great holiday and I would recommend the hotel to anyone. Thanks Kefaluka! One gripe...Thomson had booked us, as requested into a '1 bedroom family room'. We book with them all the time, and always explain that we need a separate bedroom. In fact it was 1 room with a small wooden (completely see through) frame and shelf dividing it. As the room was for myself, my husband and our 15 year old son, obviously this wasn't great. We reported this to the hotel who said we could upgrade to a 'family room with separate bedroom'. Should have cost us 65 euro per night but as a gesture of goodwill, we could could have it for 50. This still cost us an extra Â£300 on our holiday for a room we thought we were already getting. Beware if booking with Thomson, check what you're getting!More

We visited in 2015 as part of our 25th Wedding Anniversary, enjoyed the resort, food and staff so much we returned again this year 2016. Same great experience - Animation Team still as enthusiastic and friendly, as are all the staff. Definitely recommend to anyone and hope to go back again!?More
The hotel is amazing. The rooms are clean, the staff are polite, friendly and go out of their way to accommodate your every request. We had a problem with our hairdryer in the room, we mentioned it to reception and within half an hour the maintenance engineer arrived and repaired it without problems. A special mention really had to go to the Animation staff Vaxo, Sezen, Ismail, Tayfun, Burch and the rest of the team. They all work so hard to entertain the guests with great success. The shows they put on in the evening are some of the best I have ever seen Coupled with the daytime activities they do without being pushy and they still have time to stand and chaftnwith you or share a cola with you . I am returning for a second visit in September and we are planning to bring the rest of the family in August 2017. I can't wait to return and am counting the days until my return. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me and I really wouldn't hesitate to book this hotel if you are searching for an ideal beach vacationMore
