An adults-only pool and lots for kids gives this place a head start for families.
This large complex is made up of a main building and bungalows dotted across colourful gardens. Steps lead onto the little beach and, beyond, Altinkum is about 20 minutes’ walk away.
There’s a great pool scene here, with special mention going to the adults-only pool for its relaxed vibe. Littler guests are well catered for, too, with waterslides and a Thomson-run kids’ club.

We're do we start!! We have just returned after a 2 week stay...we were ready for home after the first week...first of all I would like to say how amazing the thomson staff were...they were on the ball...and did everything in there power to insure we had a lovely stay...specially Beth and Jodie...and Chelsea from the kids club...all 3 were fantastic... As for the holiday...it is advertised as a 5* hotel...and as you can imagine we paid for a 5*... this is no way a 5* ..I would say more a 3* ... on 3 occasions we seen people run after cockroaches fell from the ceiling and landed either next to them of on them...the food was repeated everyday...and was either fish ...chicken or rice...the pool bar restaurant was actually the same everyday...no life guards at all around the pool...so please keep toddlers very close by...around the pool and restaurant area..we never seen one cleaner...drinks and food were spilled...there was one barmaid behind the bar!! My wife slipped on some spilled cola...and we spent the afternoon in a turkish hospital where no one spoke English...it was terrifying with being over an hour away from our hotel...outside the resort there was run down buildings...and a dead cat that was badly decomposed...we're my 12 year daughter broke her heart....never again at the resort or this area of Turkey....all I can say is we are glad to be back on English soil More
Resort lovely BUT
Resort great accommodation I couldn't fault but food bland and just felt you were eating the same thing everyday, we went for 11 days last month, October, I wouldn't recommend going this time of year most activities had ended as in end of season so it was boring and got tedious I wanted to come home after around 5 daysMore
Disappointing food and entertainment
Very disappointing food. Lukewarm at best and repetitive. Jacket potatoes were on the menu only once in two weeks. The mash potato was awful. Watery and tasteless. Basic food and hygiene levels substandard especially at the outdoor kitchen. Croissants were not available after 9am even though breakfast is served up to 11am. There was a bowl of what i can only describe as tiny pieces of peaches in a liquid that was put on the servery every morning but was never filled up with fresh peaches for the whole of our stay. The a-la-carte italian restaurant was fabulous. Freshly cooked food served piping hot by friendly waiters. Evening entertainment by the hotel animation team was great for the children. Turkish night and the acrobats were great including EDi and his strongman show. The entertainment by the pool bar was poor, especially the gentleman who tried to sing and play guitar who was dreadful. He could not play guitar and basically sung out of key. I would not recommend this hotel based on the quality of the food.More
We were really looking forward to this holiday as my husband missed most of our summer holiday because he got pneumonia after the first few days. Turkey is a lovely place so we decided to return, but visit another resort. Where to start?? On arrival, although we were the only group, we never got a welcome drink, even though we had just had an hour and half on the transfer from the airport. Not the best start. After check in we were taken by golf buggy to our rooms which were nice bungalows with plenty of room. Not to be put off we looked on the bright side and decided to have a look around. There is a mini bar in the room, but it only had a bottle of water, which was replaced daily. There is also a free safe in the wardrobe. some toiletries are supplied on arrival, these weren't replaced when used. The shower wasn't the best, you have to run the water for what seems like forever until you get hot water. Towels/bedding replaced daily. The pool is a nice area, big pool with 3 waterslides, but the water is very cold and we had to keep kids wrapped in towels to get warm when they had braved going in. The beach for me was the best place. The view is lovely and it is so relaxing. The beach barman was very nice, but there was only beer and soft drinks and coffee machine there. there are loads of loungers along the beach and on the jetty. The restaurant has nice views overlooking the sea. The food was only warm, never hot, even when we were early to the evening meal it was only lukewarm. The cakes were plentiful and some were very nice indeed. The grandchildren loved them. The problem we encountered was that it was obviously the end of the season and the staff couldn't wait to shut up shop, with the exception of the animation team. They were brilliant with the kids, even on the last day, when i think everyone else had given up and we were the only ones at the mini disco they still entertained our 2 grandkids. Credit to them. There was hardly anyone at the hotel, so we felt like we'd got the place to ourselves. The staff plainly didn't want to be there and they started clearing all the loungers, parasols and other equipment away whilst we were sunbathing. We all felt like we were in the way at times. The last couple of days it felt really uncomfortable. Wouldn't have felt so bad if hadn't paid full price for the week, but for the price we paid and the reviews i'd read, i expected a super holiday not one that had no atmosphere, no smiles from staff and everything closing up around us. Never been so glad to come home. Maybe this hotel is good early/mid season, but its certainly not at the end.More

Just got back from this hotel lovely hotel very big . Thing going on even though it was the last week of the season , the Thomson reps and the hotel entertainment team were brilliant . Staff round the hotel was missable apart for the ladies that work in the restaurant they were lovely . The food was ok Little tip weather was lovely but very cold in the morning and also in the evening but once the sun come out it really hot . Take a coat or warm jacket . We walked in to the town a few restaurants bars and shop were still open which I was surprised about but every one was friendly More
