Private beaches and a stack of bars and restaurants make this place a huge success.
Rustic cottages peek out from behind date palms and jasmine at this hillside complex. Steps and lifts help you get around the rooms which are scattered throughout the grounds. The hotel is on a peninsula, and down on the coast there’s a trio of private beaches.
This place does things on a big scale. There’s a huge selection of restaurants, including one with panoramic views, plus a mega-mix of bars. And to top things off, the waterslides go right into the sea.

In summary, the location was excellent, the shuttle that ran frequently was really useful, the entertainment was good, the staff was very kind and welcoming overall. On the other hand the water at the beach was unbelievably dirty in some areas and the food was really average with a few exceptions. But what was disappointing the most was the room cleaning. Our room was never mopped despite asking both the reception and the housekeeper and the toilet was never sanitised, with a toddler this was really off putting.More
A GREAT place!
We have just returned from a weeks holiday. After reading some of the previous reviews, I felt some of the comments were very unfair. All staff work really hard and most spoke English (which is more than I can say for the amount of Turkish I chose to learn!!). The entertainment team were amazing and kept all of us in our party (from 11 years to 29years) busy! The waiting staff always came to ask if we wanted more drinks in the evening! The staff in the restaurants quickly cleaned tables and were very attentive. There was even staff brushing pebbles off the paths that had been washed up from the sea! The reception staff took our bags and us strait up to our room even when we came at 5.45am! We ordered taxis through them and even asked for some scales to weigh our bags on the way home- nothing was too much hassle! The restaurant had so much choice for all meals. It is fair to say that some choices were repeated but that was good for some of our party members. To be fair, I have never seen such a range of foods on offer and there was so so much food- I would spend about 10 minutes just wondering to look at what's on offer! Bear in mind they don't eat pork, so chicken, beef, fish and lamb is the meat on offer. What I really liked was that they have towels there! So you exchange your towel card for a towel which you could use and then exchange them for a clean one! There was a note to ask not to reserve sunbeds but I think this is very hard to keep track of. We would come down at 8.30 am and there were plenty of sunbeds still available- we never had trouble getting 9 in a row! Sunbeds were cleared away at night and tables for the evening were put out, so you can't really reserve them early anyway! We mainly stayed around the pool but also went to the beaches and used the water sports area. It was an amazingly beautiful place and very clean. Our "bungalow" type room was great- a little outdated on the decor but it didn't matter- we only slept there and it was always immaculately cleaned. Most areas were on a ramp but there are areas that had steps to the bungalows. It's on a peninsula, so it is slightly hilly! But we could get from the reception to the main pool area (no steps) then down the ramp to dolphin beach, up the escalator and then maybe 6 steps up to our bungalow or we could take the main marble steps and then up another set of steps up to our level and then 6 steps to the bungalow, so there are choices about the amount of steps you take!! In all we all thoroughly enjoyed it and catered for all our needs. I think you have to be extreamly picky to fault this place! More
A very enjoyable Stay
What can I say. I'm sorry, but we will be coming back. We loved every minute of our stay at the Letoonia. If there was anything to criticise it would be that when arriving late at night it may be advisable for the staff to take guests to there bungalows. It is not always easy to find where you are staying. But enough of the negatives. This place was truly amazing. I normally use a resort as a base to get out and discover where I am. Not with the Letoonia, there is just so much to do that you really do not want to go anywhere. There are so many things to compliment that I really do not know where to start. The restaurants are just amazing. I am not exaggerating when I say that you will be spoilt for choice. Quality, quantity and standard of service are really top quality. Travelling with a six year old normally bring its own challenges when it comes to food, but the restaurants at the hotel catered excellently. On top of that catering for a diabetic, as I am, is also problematic, but not here. There is such a huge variety at every meal. The beach/pool towels are supplied and of a very good quality. Also bigger than those offered at other resorts. You change them every day. I've seen a review from someone who was there the same time as my family and would like to know if he was in the same hotel as my family. All I can see is negative comments but I cannot match them to where I was staying. Staff were friendly and helpful. Accommodation was very clean an adequate. There is obviously renovations taking place so i can say that the hotel are doing there best to update the facilities even during the busy tourist season. As for the entertainment team, they were truly great. They did not stop and the kids club was the best I have ever seen. There were lots of sun beds at various locations around the facility but never a problem to find a place to sit. We will be going back and I really cannot wait. I only hope my finances will allow me to go next year.More
Good but could have been so much better
We were so looking forward to this holiday and, having read all the other comments, we thought it would be as good as all the other holidays we’ve had in Turkey. Sadly it wasn’t, but we did enjoy it. On arrival, we had to wait ages to be shown to our room. Only us and one other family arrived at that time so they weren’t exactly rushed off their feet. It was about midnight when we arrived and there was only one bar open offering food. This turned out to be a soggy, cling film wrapped, uninspiring cheese and ham roll. That was it. So not off to a good start. We eventually got to our rooms and were disappointed because, although they were adequate, they were not as comfortable and well-appointed as expected. The accommodation comprises traditional Turkish styled chalets built on the side of the hill surrounded by trees and vegetation. The chalets were built 30 years ago and are showing signs of wear. One or two were derelict. The grounds are lovely, lots of fruit trees and birds such as guinea fowl and ducks wandering about. The cicadas can be deafening! The views across the bay are stunning. There are LOTS of uneven steps to go up and down every day so this place is not good for people with poor mobility, bad knees etc. There are three funicular lifts but you will still need to get up and down some steps. Next day we discovered most sunbeds were already taken but not actually being used. Most people it seems leave their towels or odd personal items on the sun beds overnight and then don’t use the beds the next day. This is despite notices asking people not to do this. We ended up having to get up at silly o’clock in the morning to ensure we got a couple of sun beds. This spoilt what was supposed to be a nice relaxing holiday. At other all-inclusive resorts we have stayed at, the staff removed all such towels etc if the beds were left unoccupied for too long. This should happen here as it just not fair. Breakfast is bedlam unless you go really early when it is far more civilised. The food was the same every single day. We tended to stick to one beach area where we could swim reasonable distances. Got quite a nice little community spirit with others who also chose that bay. We ate at the beach bar at lunch time but the food here did not vary at all. Every day it was same old turkey and salad. The snack bar by the pool only did food, no drinks. Had to wait ages for kebab meat. In the evenings we frequented the Agora bar where staff was very mixed. Some, like Maria, were very good but others were far less attentive. The usual drinks available here. We ate mainly in the Moonlight dining area. Staff here were, on the whole, good and attentive. The food was not as good as we’ve had in other all-inclusives. Mince dishes were gristly, turkey and meatballs were undercooked and still pink. More variety here on a daily basis but somehow there was nothing that had that wow factor. One staff member we have to mention is Aziz Aris who was amazing from the moment we got there to the moment we left. I cannot praise him highly enough. Pity all the others did not some up to his standard. Thank you Aziz! The men who looked after the beaches also deserve a mention, they worked so hard all day to ensure the beaches and sun bed areas were always clean and tidy. WiFi was a bit of a joke. It would have been better to have a designated area where WiFi and internet access could be relied on. The whole place seemed overcrowded at times. The pools are very small too. If you can, try not to get a downstairs room in the chalets. We had people above us and, because of the wooden floor, it was so noisy. At 5:00 am we often had someone who sounded like they were wearing hob nail boots stomping around and dragging the furniture around. At least it meant we were up in time to go and bag a sun bed. Our 18 year old son and his friend had a great time and made loads of friends. Overall the holiday was OK and we enjoyed it on the whole. It wouldn’t have taken much to iron out the niggles to turn it into a really good holiday.More
Family fun place
This is a family resort, and as such it offers really adequate amenities and entertainment activities. The resort consists of very cute bungalows, which seem to have been recently renovated, so are really clean and comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised. There are several beaches and pools around the property (it is pretty big) so sufficient to change places each day for a week. I think longer than that it gets a bit monotonous. The staff is really polite and really helpful to the best of their abilities (not all are good English speakers), Having said all that, we were two families vacationing there and our friends' kid got hurt on a water slide (the slide in the mini club). The doctor on site did not have sterile strips to place on the chin of the child, nor there was a place on the property to buy them or any sterilizing medicine (Betadine in our case). They were advised to go into the city and visit a hospital to get stitches. After consulting other doctors not on site it turned out that was not necessary. In general not very satisfied with how the case was handled. Was not life-threatening obviously, but safety and security should be of up-most importance in a place packed with little kids. Also, we stayed 5 full days of which 3 days we went to the water slide in the Mini Club. Each time there was a case where a small child goes on the white slide, would fall in the water and not be able to lift his/her's head quickly enough due to the way the slide's end is positioned above water and not slightly emerged in it. Point being, everyday there was a child that almost drowned there. This is applicable to little children below 3. So i would really keep an eye on that one. Food is great for a beach resort, BBQ is amazing. Salad variety not great, but manageable. Internet connection is not good. I had to almost a full day and had many failed skype calls. But again, it is a family resort so there is no business center or anything of that sort. All in all, we would return prepared for surprises. But we loved the views form the place, the provided entertainment, the boat shuttle to the town, the restaurant and reception staff.More
