Palm Wings Beach Resort

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 15 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.

Excellent Place

stayed here and had a fantastic holiday found the premium restaurants to be good but no real requirement to use them. Pools great for kids and the buffet bar near the sea excellent. Room sizes were generous and staff and kids animation team were brilliant. Having stayed in Turkey on numerous times I would come back to Palm Wings. Be aware I didn't think much of outside of the resort with tacky shops at the seafront but there was no real need to venture out from the resortMore

Hit and miss for us but overall a good hotel

There's so many great things about this hotel. We had a great time and met some lovely people. Staff were great with us. Especially the animation team, Engin the photographer and Sedat in the restaurant. The reception staff though were unhelpful and unfriendly. The hotel was very clean and has lots of great facilities but wasn't really suitable for us. We have a 4 year old girl and one two year old twins and I have to say, there were no facilities or activities for them, they weren't allowed in the kids club, the amphitheatre was too dangerous to take them in to and in general the hotel was pretty unsafe for them. We needed eyes in the back of our heads and couldn't relax 24/7. Couldn't lock the doors in the apartments and would wake up to find them wandering around outside. They could also escape through the balcony bars and the restaurant railings. The children's facilities was the main reason we chose this hotel. It would have been great if the kids were older but we found it just wasn't suitable for us. The park was badly located and poorly lit making it dangerous for them. The food was good. We enjoyed the a la carte restaurants and always found something nice for ourselves and the kids. Did become addicted to the pancakes. No dodgy stomachs. They could do with a better drinks service at meal times. Although, as long as Sedat was around, he looked after us. We enjoyed the local town and met some great local people there and didn't find the sellers too pushy. They were always friendly and polite with us. The pool was too cold to go in some days so we used the indoor pool. I would go back when the kids are older as we really enjoyed Turkey and the people there. The hotel has loads of plus points and a great beach and location. But not for young children and with a few tweaks here and there it could be really good.More

Great family hotel

Stayed at Palm Wings as a family of 4 (2 adults, 3 year old and 8 year old) from 9th-16th October 2014. The hotel grounds are huge and some of the bungalows can be quite far away from the pool/shopping centre/restaurant. We were lucky and only had a short 5 min walk. The bungalow was nice enough, a huge double bed and bunkbeds for the kids, tv with a couple of English speaking channels, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. The room was cleaned by the maid everyday and fresh towels left if needed. The pool area was great although as has been mentioned before the tiles are extremely slippy. Certain areas have green non slip mats down to form some kind of pathway but for example outside the toilets there are none and inside the toilets again none and the floors are always wet here due to people leaving the pool and going to the toilet. There were always plenty of sun loungers available with no need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve them. The towel service is great and I wish I had known about this before we came as I had no need for our own towels that I brought. Each guest is issued with a towel card that you exchange for a fresh towel to use by the pool and then you hand it back in at the end of the day. The animation team were always around trying to get people involved around the pool with the morning dance to Ai Se Eu Te Pego or water aerobics, darts, water polo etc. My kids loved it. And they wouldnt pester you if you said no you weren't interested. Food is always an important part of all inclusive. The food here is ok. For the evening meal we felt that they went for quantity over quality. There were lots and lots of things to chose from but they all weren't the greatest. We soon learned were the good things would be and stuck to those options! A highlight of breakfast each morning were the freshly made croissants and there would be a queue every morning at the oven waiting for them coming out. At lunchtime we ate at the poolbar were they had snacks available such as pizza, salads, chips, chicken kebab, chicken nuggets, turkish pancakes, pasta etc. Ice cream was available here too but only between 1pm-4pm. No ice cream available at night after dinner which was disappointing. Drinks were served in tiny plastic cups that would be finished in 2 gulps and there were often queues at the bar as quite often there was only 1 person serving. Branded spirits such as Bacardi, Southern Comfort etc were available but only if you paid extra, not part of the all inclusive. We have been to Turkey before at this time of year and have felt that the hotels had been winding down for the end of season but this was definitely not the case at Palm Wings. There was evening entertainment every night for both kids and adults in the ampitheatre. The animation team of Justin, Nino, Tarzan, Yalcin, Ana and the guy with the ponytail (referred to in another review on here as the "give me tempo man", such an accurate description!) all work extremely hard. You see them first thing in the morning at 10am and they're still in the pool bar at midnight, I have no idea how they do it. I don't think our holiday would have been the same had they not been there. And now we have the mini disco cd at home with us we can relive our nights spent in the ampitheatre! I have to mention the on site spa and hairdresser aswell. My partner had a Turkish bath and he thoroughly enjoyed it, it was 90TL I think and lasted about 90 mins. He also had a hot Turkish shave and haircut done just before we came home, excellent value for money. My daughter had her hair braided too and this was lovely and the staff in there are great with the kids. All in all we had a great family holiday and we'd definitely recommend this place.More

Average resort...

Arrived 19/10/2014.Stayed here with a family of six, so we had booked two bungalows. You would think they would give you two bungalows next to each other, but No they did not, even though the place was not full and the room next to ours had been empty. The management just told us that we can't have the bungalow next to ours. This was a big inconvenience as we had young children. So this was a bad start. The complex itself was quite large and kept clean. Our room were cleaned everyday which was nice. The swimming pool area was good but the floor tiles were extremely slippery when wet. Food was ok but not great. Same food day in day out. Case of Quantity rather than Quality. Staff were so miserable and unpolite, maybe they were looking forward to end of season. As far as drinks are concerned, it was just the basics. Not even any fresh juices available, it was just poor quality cordials. Entertainment was bare to minimum. Nothing really going on in the evenings. As far as I am concerned, I have stayed in many 4/5 star all inclusive resorts, but this was by far the worst. I would probably give it 3 star overall. Palm wings you have let yourself down!!More
