Realistic Review of Aqua Fantasy – Not fantastic and not terrible
Stayed 2 weeks August/September Facts Hotel split in 2 sides – World and Club. World side is newer and houses the majority of the English speaking guests. Club side was the main hotel until the World side was built and houses mainly Dutch, German and Scandinavian guests. The resort is split in the middle by a road that divides both world and club. The same facilities are available in both and the water park, amphitheater and beach bar are shared between both sides. Pro’s Rooms kept nice and clean – We had a particularly good cleaner Stayed in room 23** world side – Pool view on the ground floor easy access to pool, pearl bar, beach bar and amphitheater Kebabs and pizzas in the Pearl Bar were great and served every day between 12:30 and 15:00 Aqua Park is great - free entry for hotel guests Swimming pools are very good especially the Fontana pool – where all the English speaking people are located. Atmosphere around the pool is friendly and we met some really nice people Beach Bar entertainment is good and the sunset is amazing Foam Party on the beach was great fun especially when being supplied with melon and vodka cocktails Fire show was OK but only the front row can see everything Simon signing before the bingo night and in the beach bar was great – some adult entertainment at last why did we not see more of him in this role??? Free beach towels provided Planet Yucca restaurant in Kusadasi promoted by Sexy Figo is well worth a visit. Food and entertainment was great but bring plenty of liras. We were with a group of 13 and we made the most of the freedom. They provide a free taxi to and from Kusadasi worth €30 so take advantage of that. Con’s Rooms are too small for 2 adults and 2 older children – remember it is supposed to be a 5* hotel Entertainment in the amphitheater is terrible. My kid’s school performances are 100 times better. The quiz night thing hosted by Simon on the Saturday night was fun for 10 minutes but he managed to drag it out for at least an hour of absolute rubbish cheering for side A and now side B WOW The James Bond night was even worse - who dreams up this rubbish. They found it very difficult to get 3 couples to volunteer. One brave couple brought there 2 year old son on to the stage. Simon proceeded to abuse this poor child and his family by saying “a child, no I hate children”. The couple hung around for about a minute or 10 and then walked off the stage. Good for you. What ensued was utter rubbish. Could not bring ourselves to even pass the amphitheater after such drivel let alone sit through another show. Reports from other guests we spoke to hinted that the rest of the shows on the other 12 night were not up to much either. Seriously, management needs to spend a little bit of the cash on some decent entertainment. 834 room sold out the 2 weeks we were there, I would expect to be entertained?? Cattle market buffet restaurants – whoever designed the Oasis and Tropicana restaurants made major errors in crowd management. Breakfast is a nightmare if you want an omelet queuing for 20 minutes is the norm. Dinner is even worse queuing for cooked meats and fish really feels like you are in a school canteen rather than a 5* hotel Ice cream stands everywhere but is extra – free from 12:30 to 14:30 vanilla and choco. Hard to understand the reasoning behind this Rules state any towels placed on sunbed before 9:00am will be removed - not enforced Beer is terrible in all bars. Flat with a bad taste most people put a drop of sprite in to mask the taste. No imagination in the activities for the kids aged 11 to 16. None of our kids or the kids we met went near the clubs. Normally they do so must be something wrong there too. Mosquitoes - everyone we met was bitten by mosquitoes despite wearing repellent bands creams and sprays. Particularly bad in the steakhouse, beach bar, pearl bar and amphitheater And finally – stomach problems - a lot of people had stomach problems mainly diarrhea. 2 men we met were hospitalized for a few days with gastroenteritis, other members of our group had very bad diarrhea. My wife and I got it on our last night and had to travel home the next day not recommended!!!! So beware Overall – we had a good holiday mainly because of the great fun loving people we met. The best night we had was in the planet yucca restaurant need I say more but I will. The foam party was great fun. The hotel is not fantastic but not bad either. Some simple management changes would really make it better. We had a great holiday because we met some great people but we will not return to Aqua Fantasy. Tip for the management Book some professional entertainment – over 800 families on site and being entertained by pure amateurs every evening in unacceptable. Vary the entertainment around the pool and for teenagers, offering the same games every day is not on. Put some entertainment on for teenagers in the evenings as under 16’s are not allowed participate in the evening entertainment in the beach bar. Redesign the buffet restaurants to create a flow of guests through the hot food area. Swap some of the cleaning staff in the restaurant with cooks. A few more people cooking hot food would ease the long queues. Put some lights at the outdoor food area in the Tropricana restaurant. The Turkish cuisine was very tasty but I could not see what I was selecting. Pot luck in the dark!! Give out Ice cream for free from 10:00 to 16:00 and from 20:00 to 21:30. Enforce the no towel before 9:00am rule Change the beer to something people can drink without adding sprite to kill the bad taste. Investigate the causes of the stomach problems and gastroenteritis and do something to prevent it happening to so many people. If all these changes were made I may consider returning. I will monitor trip adviser to see what future guests have to say.More

Brill holiday, fab place, some room for improvement but no let down!
Travelled 1 week 6/9-13/9 as couple and two kids - 7 & 14. We Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. I never return to places as I think there's so much to see, but if opportunity/good price arose i couldn't say no. After reading trip advisor weekly. I was worried my expectations would be too high.. But there was no need. *warning long review* Arrival - TIP - fly to Izmir.. 45mins transfer. We arrived late, check in was fast, staff were attentive. Lemonade, soup and sandwiches waiting. First impressions great(and lasted). I had emailed for a second floor room and got just that. Hotel - the complex is massive, split into two sides - world and club. We stayed in world and as the week went on there were a few reasons we were glad to be. Restaurant,pools,staff,guests seemed much nicer. The hotel and grounds are very clean. Lots of pools and bars to choose from. Our fav bar was the beach bar.. Atmosphere, setting and drinks were fab. We made our way here every night after the amphitheatre. Except for shops the hotel is cashless, using room card as payment. But we didn't use it much! Plenty of facilities. Staff - brilliant, friendly, hardworking, clean. One night there was a couple arguing badly at their room and 5 staff turned up. Most staff have a good English understanding. Food - same as any AI resort, you'll always find something to eat. Our 7yr old is the fussiest eater and she never went hungry. No need for food to be repetitive if u use the facilities available. We broke up the week with two al le cartes and planet yucca. We never ate lunch in the restaurant. The pearl bar has the best lamb/chicken kebabs(real meat!) and fresh pizza served at lunchtime. The steak rest was a very good meal, large portions, tasty, worth every extra penny.. 4ppl = 85tl £27. Italian rest was ok, wish we has tried the Chinese rest instead. Friends we made said it was lovely and their pics looked it. Ice cream was 12:30-2:30 but this was not a problem, kids didn't even notice, they had one after lunch. Pools - we stayed at the Fontana pool, mainly British guests, music, entertainment, always being cleaned, large pool and close to the kids slides on site. Pools suit every age/swimming ability! Never had an issue with sunbeds and we got the pool anytime between 9:30 and 11:00 the one day. Pool towels supplied and can be changed twice a week. Entertainment - as many other reviews have said, it is the only negative. The team try hard and put something on in the amphitheatre every night which just watchable but it's not what u get in Spain( I found it the same last time I was in turkey). The odd professional act bought in would make a big difference. Not bad enough to spoil the holiday though. The beach bar had a disco every night but the best night by far was the beach party! Bonfire,fireworks,fire dancers, lasers, band and a foam party all on the beach, it was a stunning atmosphere. Held once a fortnight we were very pleased it fell in our week! Daily entertainment programme spot on. Waterpark - good waterpark with some cool slides, kids section was brill but lazy river too lazy. Open 30mins early for guests but not included in AI. Tip - go for a couple of hours at 10:30 or 3:00. Quietest times and can make use of AI before/after to save buying in there or walking to nearest hotel bar. Beach - sea shallow for the length of the pier,so safe. Sand dark but sparkles when dry. Clean, plenty of beds, watersports and lovely sunset. Kusadasi - we went to Adaland for the dolphin show, (bustop outside hotel) show was ok, worth it as only about £12 adult and swimming with dolphins was better than I done in Florida. We went into town for the Wednesday market, large market bit more expensive than other turkey markets as cruise ships stop for the day. They take euro, lira and pounds. Got out genuine fakes ranged £6 kids tshirt - £30 beats. We also went to planet yucca.. Worth a visit as it's a change of scenery from the hotel and offers more entertainment and shopping, free taxi. Meal was nice but wish we went later as entertainment started about 9/10. Rooms- we had a family double. Plenty of space, kingsize bed, sliding doors separated sleeping areas. TV in each bedroom. Bathroom lovely, shower pressure fine. All clean and free safe. Biggest downside.... Thin walls you could hear the corridor activities at all hours. Hoovering at 8am to drunk guests at 2am. Just take earplugs :) Free aircon in the room was another bonus. Departure - check out is 12pm, they stored luggage securely and we used the indoor pool for showering before leaving. We paid our room bill(steak rest and waterpark drinks) with no issues and they accepted English pound (as we were out of lira) Overall, it is a great place, topped my last Turkey holiday and I might be pushed to beat this place for a Turkish holiday without paying more. We wish we had booked 10 days as we were not ready to leave. Thank you Aquafantasy!More
Will definitely be back next year!!
We have just returned from this hotel after staying for two weeks. We are a family of five. With a 16 year old, 13 year old and 5 year old. There was something for all ages from the aqua park to the hotel run kids club to the daytime and evening entertainment. The rooms we stayed in were on the world side of the hotel and were lovely. The cleaners do a fantastic job and are constantly cleaning all round the pools, toilets, restaurants and bars. The gardeners also work very hard and are out everyday maintaining the hotel. We found that the food was lovely and there was always something different. We used the pearl bar during the day for snacks they do very nice chicken kebabs and pizzas as well as burgers hot dogs and spaghetti that the children loved. In the evening we either went to the main buffet restaurant or the one on the other side of the hotel and both were very nice. We went into Kusadasi to visit Planet Yucca restaurant. this is well worth the visit as the food is lovely and the waiters and evening entertainment. All the bar staff were really nice especially Ali and Tarik at the pearl bar. Some of the visitors do try to push in but 9 time out of 10 the staff will not let them and send them to the back of the queue.Our youngest daughter really enjoyed the kids club and kids disco its run by 'Auntie Sandra' who is lovely and does a really good job. But most of all the animation team made our holiday. they all work really hard and get you involved in the entertainment. The ones id really like to give special recognition to would be Millie, Simon, James, Sausage, Jack sparrow, Gemma, Alyssa and Jerry. Thank you you all made our holiday very special and we hope we see you all next year!More

Had a great time, however 5 star Turkey is not 5 star England
Hotel clean, pools excellent, food variety good and entertainment great. Kids loved it Age 5 and 8. Room a little small for family of 4, and décor whilst modern was slightly damaged and tatty. Also corridor carpets stained with goodness knows what?? Maid respects the do not disturb sign, however the lady who checks the mini bar daily does not. Aquapark was great, however it was part way through the first week that we discovered our youngest could go on some of the larger rides if you hire a baby boat for 7 Turkish lire (double ring with a bottom fitted to the front ring to stop kids falling through). Not well sign posted. Avoid the visit to the Gold factory unless you want to get harrassed. Its part of a shopping trip experience. The pressure selling is on a new scale. And once you are in you have to go through multiple massive display rooms to get out, each with new sales assistants determined to sell you a 5 grand ring etc. A must visit is the Turkish family bath experience in the spa. And if your kids go in the Crocco kids club, the adults can bob off to the Aquapark to try out the big rides for big kids. Would go back !!!!!More
Fantastic family holiday!!
We have just got back after 10 nights at Aquafantasy and i miss it already! We got there 1st sept and the weather was amazing so hot, rooms were clean and tidy and had sliding doors so kids were seperate with tv in each room. We stayed on the world side. We spent most of our days around the fontana pool where its mostly english and great fun for the kids. They loved the club song that came on every few hours and they were up doing the routine! Food was really good i enjoyed it and so did my partner ( who is fussy!) and kids ate loads. They do a snack bar where u can get pizza,burgers,hotdogs, waffles (kids fave) all sorts! Only bad thing is limited time on icecream think it was 12-2pm. Entertainment team are fab! Enjoyed the shows everynight we watched them do smurfs,ice age, circus, michael jackson and family games. Kids loved Captain jack he was so funny ! We went to planet yucca one night you will see Figo come round the pool ,you get free taxi to and from the restaurant and have upto 3am to return so can have a quick shop in kusadasi its great fun food nice get lots to eat at great prices! They have u up dancing and belly dance show is great. I had a turkish bath and a massage one day and it was fab! Highly recommend it think it worked out about £40 for 2hrs! Felt squeeky clean and relaxed! I suggest doing it at start of hol as its supposed to help u tan better! Overall have nothing bad to say about this hotel aqua park was fab even though its not all inclusive inside the park, you use your key card to pay and goes on your bill at the end of stay its not expensive though. Now mosquitos were a problem for some but we didnt get bit once! And no upset stomachs. We loved it and hope to go back again the firstchoice team are fab in the hotel also! Just a few things the transfer from airport is 2.5hrs long but it does go quick! Bodrum airport is so expensive so get your duty free on the way to turkey! Some of the guests think they can push to front of queues at dinner times just stand your ground they are very cheeky!! More
