Sherwood breezes

Just returned from a week at sherwood breezes hotel and had a great time. We staying in room 1226 on the second floor and had a great view. Room had everything we needed. The positives: - large pools - great water slides - beautiful beach - great pier and water sports, pier included a beach bar which was great. - outside grill section really good, omelettes in the morning which were ace. - staff work really hard - the entertainment team were exceptional, and the restaurant staff tried really hard but I think they could do with more staff to stay on top of the restaurant at peak times. - rooms no complaints - our room was cleaned daily and the complimentary mini bar was topped up daily. Great sea view from the balcony. - great entertainment with some outside acts (eg Turkish dancing on Turkish night). Our daughter loved the kids entertainment and the midday pool game / entertainment was always funny. - beach party was great, with a tasty evening mini grill. - only ever waited a few minutes for drinks at any of the bars - food good variety/plenty of choice even at snack bars. Flatbreads in the Robin Hood snack bar at lunchtime were delicious, with the two ladies cooking them spending 5 hours per day in the snack bar cooking to order which I thought took real dedication. - reception spoke good English and were able to answer any queries we had. We found most staff spoke some English so communicating wasn't a problem. The entertainment team seemed to speak an terrific number of languages. The negatives - a la carte restaurants are a little difficult to get into, you have to queue at 9:30am in the lobby if you want to get into the Mongolian restaurant, and only the first few people in the queue will get into the restaurant, although this is partly because people seemed to be booking in with large groups of people so the restaurants fill quickly (they only had 25 people aprox in each in each a la carte. We only eat in the Mongolian so I cannot comment on the Italian or Turkish. - the main restaurant - if you turn up between 7:45 and 8:15 in the evening you will have to wait a few minutes for a table - we ate between 7pm and 7:30pm and never had any trouble getting a table. Same can be said for breakfast, after 10am they close part of the breakfast area and it can be difficult to get a table at this time. We went down for breakfast about 9am and never had any trouble getting a table. Due to the buffet restaurant being busy and not enough staff we did find the at table drinks service a little slow - but getting to know your waiter and small tip certainly helped!!! - arrived at 10:30 ish in the evening on our arrival day, and was advised we could get something to eat in the 24 restaurant. Food here was awful, dry bread etc. Overall had a fantastic time, very relaxing and wouldn't have any issues recommending this hotel. My thanks to all the staff at sherwood breezes who worked so hard to ensure we have a great holiday.More

Richard M,

Food and Staff let this Hotel down - Aug 13th - 23rd Aug 2014

Having stayed at the Concorde De lux the last three years we decided to try the Sherwood as it was 2k cheaper and although we had not stayed there we had been inside the grounds when we had stayed at the Concorde. I will break this into sections: The Room: We had a lovely room on the 7th floor (1735) which had a sea view. It was two rooms so perfect; it had a room with a double and a room with two single beds. Two showers, two toilets so was ideal for us. The room itself was clean and looked as it had been recently decorated. The room looked like it had been rushed to get it finished (Hopefully the pictures will show this) but the mirror was wonky, the wooden floor not really finished. Also the Sinks do not have a plug so you cannot fill them! My wife asked them about it and they said you don't get plugs in a 5* hotel! They went and got us a plastic plug and said they bought it especially for us! The Air Con in the room works but is freezing and there isn't a middle ground. You either turn it off and boil or turn it on and freeze. The Staff: Just like the Concorde has in the last few years, Sherwood have also cut their staff. Unfortunately this meant that the service was a million miles from 5*. The lobby bar service was dreadful and we waited 30 mins for a coffee once (yes, it would have been easier to get up and get it myself). One example of the laziness was we asked one of them for a drink at 11:55 (5 mins before the bar closes). We watched her crawl back to the bar, talk to her colleagues and on the stroke of 12 come and tell us it was closed. I am not sure where to start on the staff in the main Restaurant but to say they were rude is an understatement. On more than one occasion when we sat at a table that needed cleaning we were told to move to another table as they did not have time to clean it! My wife almost poured a bowl of soup over the manager’s head as she waited 20 mins for them to get her the soup after it had finished and then it was the wrong one. Once again, the service is not 5* The Food: The was the worst I have known since staying in Turkey. There was choice but the standard of the food was poor and was always Luke warm. On the gala night when you ate outside they have more choice and I decided to eat some of the prawns, big mistake! On the day after around 2am I woke up and thought I would need to go to hospital. I crawled to the toilet and you can guess the rest! the next day was a wipe-out. I was falling asleep at tables, on the sunbed and then went to the room. I couldn't eat for two days. I am not a fussy eater and neither is my 16 year old son but all we ate for Breakfast was toast and even that was a disaster! they have ONE toaster and that only takes really thin slices otherwise it gets stuck and catches fire! we ended up buying our own bread at the local supermarket Migros. The food was so poor that we spent 3 nights down at the local Burger king (a 20 min walk) and we were bumping into loads of families from the hotel doing the same thing. There will be people on here who disagree with my comments about the food but having been to the Concorde the last three years I can tell you the food was not very good. The Concorde food isn't 2k better but HOT and has a little more choice. The Pools: Can’t complain about the pools. One of the reasons we booked the Sherwood apart from it being 2k cheaper than the Concorde is the pools and Slides. These did not let us down. The slides are great and the pools are plenty. The main pool is where all of the entertainment happens and that is huge. There is an elevated pool for the adults (although Children did go in there). The slides are at the front of the hotel and are excellent. The Animation team: If it was not for them then I would have seriously thought about moving. The made my two boys (Luke 16 and Teddy 13) have a wonderful time. There was David whose various catch phrases my boys are still saying now! ENERGY! HOLA HOLA! VERY PROFESSIONAL!. He is a great person who works very hard and when he plays the Darts he plays DARTS WITH APPLAUSE and is very popular. A huge thank you to him. Also Mustapha (AKA Hercules). He is the little fella and he is also very funny and made you feel very welcome. His Killer Darts are really good and he works hard. The Hotel In general: Although the hotel has been refurbished it has been rushed. I do not think they can cope with the new building they have built. The lifts are a joke. Although there are three, when you call them you only activate one, for EG if there is a lift on -1 and you are on Zero, it will go straight past you! the lift you may get may be on 10! The staff needs to speak more English. My wife had a constant battle trying to find laundry they had lost and they only found it on the day we were going, they then bought up somebody else's with ours and when we told them they took that away and some of ours! There is a lot more I can write but feel free to contact me via this. I am sure my wife will read this and say "you didn't mention this and you didn't mention that"! Would I return to Sherwood Breezes.. No... The animation Staff were excellent and the pools and slides great but the food was poor and the service was not 5* not even 3*More

Defo not a 5* more like 3*

We stayed here from the 9th of aug for 2 weeks, When we arrived after 10 at night, we were told our rooms were 8 rooms apart! Even know we were told they would be next door to each other, we have 4 kids between us raging from 9 to 15! There was no family rooms available and we were promised when we booked the holiday we would be next door to each other! Even with an e mail being sent that week from the manager of Thomas cook it seemed they still couldn't give us what we paid for!! We had to settle for the 8 rooms apart! So took turns in sleeping in separate rooms with kids! Not really what you want to be doing on holiday! We were then shown some stale rolls to eat! Cheese & tomato! Which everyone wouldn't eat! Rooms were clean enough but only 2 towels in each, so had to go looking for towels every night! On 2nd day my daughter sliced her toe on the water slide, & had to see the doctor as we thought it needed stitched, he was great & dressed it, and she went bk for 2 more days! Was reported to staff at reception who took a note of it?? The food in the hall was awful, everything looked like stew! But there was always cold chips or chicken nuggets to eat! ( all the time) I would advise to eat at snak bar! It's warmer & the people are not as rude! Baked potatoes were nice( most days) on 3rd day kids took ear infections! So more trips to the doctor! By end of first week most of the family had bad tummys!! So we decided not to eat in the hall the rest of the holiday! Burger King was 5 miles down the rd & the kids & my partner were going there to eat! The al a cart is awful! Except for the Mongolian, but you are only allowed one booking your whole stay! The staff were not pleasant, seemed as if they all hated their jobs! Lol The entertainment team were amazing! Mirania, Hercules, & David! Great bunch of guys, without these guys the hotel would be rubbish! It defo wasn't worth over 7 grand to eat in Burger King most days! The alcohol was watered down, most nights you got the wrong drink!! We got to meet some lovely people who had stayed before, but won't be returning because it has went downhill! Weather was amazing though 👍More

Dawn I,

Unbelievable vacation

We are 2 families coming from 2 different countries and we met at the hotel. We speak: English, French, Italian, German but still we had problems understanding with the waiters and the reception staff, even in English. Well... probably we should learn Turkish in the end... The hotel looks nicer than last year (Yeah!!! Big mistake to book twice in the same hotel) but they are understaffed and even the staff that they have is poorly trained, not kind at all and then try to send you away. Our problems: 1st. Came on a Saturday midnight and we've been sent to an already occupied room (you can imagine the surprise when we opened the door) 2. We waited 40 minutes for a baby cot (I have 2 kids: 1 1/2 and 3 1/2 years). YES!!! With 2 small kids we had to wait from 12:00 midnight to around 1 o'clock. I tell you: is the best moment at the day to unpack and relax...Who the hell needs baby cot at midnight??? 3. We received in that night a room that has the main ventilation of the hotel under the window and all night we felt that we were still flying. We had the best sleep ever after such a welcoming start.. 4. Got moved to another, smaller, minuscule room. Went to the manager at the reception and sort it out. But, while I was standing in the reception I heard not 1, not 2 complains but more than 20. And you know what the reception staff was doing first of hand? Get rid of you, sent you away. I heard: We are fully booked, the manager is not here now, etc etc .. And there were people going away and people insisting. The ones insisting may get what they want. You know what the girl from reception told me? The manager is not here, but when I insisted she called him from the office behind. Really? 5. We had 3 days in a row the minibar empty. Completely empty. 6. We had 2 day in a row the room not made up/ cleaned. 2 days with stinky pampers in the bathroom .. Mmmm.. what a wonderful smell. : )) 7. We were about to MISS THE FLIGHHT because of the reception staff. We went on Friday evening to ask for the transfer time to the airport. They told us 15:15 next day. We went and checked flight time on our tickets and it was 15:15 next day. We went again to reception insisting that maybe they are wrong, to check if the flight is delayed.. I received a paper note on which is written: "pickup time from the hotel 15:15" Next day morning we entered on Antalya Airport webpage to check the departures timetable and the flight was in place at 15:15. Went AGAIN to the reception, told them about the flight and only then they checked again and gave us 12:15 the pickup time from the hotel. Can you imagine us with 2 small kids standing in the airport at about 4PM, long after our flight was departed if I would listen to the receptionists (2 different ones) ?????? I've never seen so much incompetence and careless attitude towards your customer. I am really disappointed. What to discuss about the fact that at dinner time NOBODY asked us if we would like to drink something, there were not enough cutlery on tables.. etc We booked a la cart Turkish (because you are not allowed with kids in the Mongolian one) and we stayed more than 5 minutes in the door and waiter passing by many times but not asking : " What the hell do you want " or at least something.. " Please take a sit.. I will be with you in a minute.." Just something. DISCLAIMER: We had tipped the waiters, the cleaning lady, the guy from the bus that took us from and to the airport. Last year we also tipped the lifeguard from the beach when he was feeding the fishes. We tipped bartenders.. etc. We did not tipped receptionists just because I was astonished by their competence and helpfulness and I did not tipped the guy which helped with moving luggage because I was really, really mad (please thank to those guys as I am really grateful to them). I think the entire attitude towards their gusts is lacking. This should not happen in any hotel no matter how many stars it has. We had an unbelievable vacation.More

Not a 5 star...many better resorts nearby!

In general nice resorts, but when you visit the nearby resorts you notice a big difference especially with food!..staff not friendly at all..the nightshows is not nice comparing to ither resorts. I don't reccomend this hotel if you have the choice for another one..More
