This super-sized beachfront complex has got the lot – bars, restaurants, a bumper crop of activities, and a pool for every day of the week.
The big attraction at this place has to be the pools – there’s everything from lazy Jacuzzi® ones to action-packed affairs with waterslides.
The list of activities ticks off things like 10-pin bowling*, high ropes and football*, while a buffet and a trio of theme restaurants sort out hunger pangs.

Hardest working hotel we have visited
This is our last day at HV Turkey and I have to confess to being a self confessed holiday snob. This means this hotel has had to work really hard to impress and the staff here have done just that. Arrival Really well organised both at airport and at hotel. Reception were quick and efficient with a swift transition to our suite room. Bags were delivered to our rooms a short while later. Room We stayed in the newly refurbished suite rooms which were beautiful. Very modern, clean and funky. Loads of space for storage with maid service 6 times a week. One of the nicest rooms we have stayed in. Bathrooms are clean with Jacuzzi baths. The speed at which this hotel correct any minor quibbles is impressive. Our maid one day turned up at 5.30pm, I asked for an early clean following this and the hotel have delivered. One of the wall lights was coming loose in the room it was fixed within a matter of hours. The suite rooms come with their own pools which saves you from the complete nightmare that is the main pool. Pools It isn't the hotel that let's this area down, they work tirelessly to keep them immaculately clean. There are 7 pools and so this is no easy task. Pools are amazing but the 5am start that other guests do to reserve their sunbeds is unnecessary. If you want a bed that's what you have to do. My husband has got up every day at 7am and nearly all the beds have gone. If you want a bed by the main pool then join the 5am crew. It's the guests who spoil this and create this madness. The hotel however needs to enforce it's no sun bed reservation till 8am. It doesn't, despite the signs. One guest told me people go out and sleep on sunbeds from 5am??? Food Simply outstanding, the sheer number of people who are catered for is just immense. This is a huge hotel and to deliver the standard of food for the quantity of people is hugely impressive. You can eat at the al la carte restaurants with no issues on booking in. I have to say the service in these restaurants is excellent and all the staff should be commended. Lunch can be very busy so go early or go late, avoid 1 - 2. Beach bar does toastie's and chips and there is a pancake house so if you can't be bothered with the masses head off there. Simple but does the job. Kids Club Exceptionally well organised with a fabulous team of people who really take the time to get to know your kids. There are A LOT of children in this hotel and the kids club reps take the time to remember your kids names send get to know them. Probably the thing that impressed me the most and they work so hard. Gym It opens at 9am needs to open earlier Spa Well worth a visit, we had a family spa day which was just brilliant, really enjoyed it and well worth the money. Would highly recommend. Entertainment There is always something going on and it's your choice to participate or not, it is no hassle. Kids entertainment of a night is ok but the Ampitheatre is too hot and too uncomfortable to spend hours there every night. The Loose Chippings and the Widgets are good for the little ones but the 9pm onwards is a little cringe worthy. The pool bar has a good host with quizzes but they do stress it's aimed at the adults. Bit spoilt on this coming from two previous year at Sensatori where the entertainment was outstanding. Trips Captain Popcorns Cruise was great for the kids as was the trip to the market. Go to the main public beech on the Olu Deniz trip, the blue lagoon wasn't that impressive. Overall Can't fault the hotel or it's staff who are the main credit to the HV. They work so hard and it would be nice of our fellow Brits to appreciate that at times. The hotel is huge and if you prefer something less busier then this hotel is not for you, however as a family every need is catered for. I would avoid the first two weeks of August we arrived at the end of these two weeks and it was just too busy. I imagine this hotel is simply outstanding when it's a little quieter and I don't think I have seen it at it's very best due to how busy it is.More

Our first visit to a holiday village
Ok so this was our first visit to a holiday village and before we went we read the reviews and like most people we were concerned about the reviews regarding pooing in the pool and the dining arrangements. Please do not be put off by these. We have arrived back from a 2 week holiday and the pool was shut 3 times out of 14 days. and this was in the first 5 days. PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT THE HOTELS FAULT. There are signs everywhere about putting swim nappies on younger children ( this I would have thought was obvious) however it is not that age group that is the problem. It is older children who feel it impressive to video the act and put it on Facebook. Come on parents take control! The dining arrangements are fine. Do not expect to have a relaxed family meal each night. There are 5 a la carte restaurants on site if you want this. 4 of these can be visited free of charge once each throughout your stay. Only issue is you have to order what you want to eat when you book. The main restaurant Olympus is great. Loads of choice and for the number of people they cater for I was impressed with the quality. We found it worked well by getting a table which we never found difficult and and then going up to get food separately. Our kids loved this and could choose what ever they wanted and the queues were never that bad. We are a family of 5. 2 adults 3 children who are aged 2,5 and 7. To be honest our idea of a great holiday is a private villa with a pool and eating out so we don't have to wash up. (obviously we cant get away with that at breakfast!!:)) Due to the ages of our children however we knew we would not get away with that this year!!!! We thought we would book a HV so the children were entertained and could meet other similar aged children. We were not disappointed although there were some buts we felt could be improved. We arrived to a nice room which was clean. We had a standard room which was fine for 5 of us but next time I would book the suite to give us a little more room. We went to the welcome meeting in which you can book trips however from speaking to others you can book these cheaper locally in Sarigerme. All inclusive means all inclusive and I can not fault the amount you can eat and drink. The food is great and we tried it all from the main restaurants to the toasties and pancake house I have to say are all well done. The only down side would be the alcoholic drinks. The local wine is something that needs to improve. You could order other wines which were at an additional payment which we did but it would have been nice to have more / better wine to be included. There are activities for the kids on all day and they cater for all age groups which is great but there were some that were at an additional cost. The Football Academy, Razzmatazz ans the swimming academy. These were around Â£35 per child for about 3 sessions. We felt as we had paid for all inclusive some of these could have been included. However we did put our 5 and 7 year old girls into Razzmatazz and they loved it so much we put them into a second session. They are now home and still singing the songs and I would like to say a massive thank you to Vikki and Peter who made there time really special. The reps are a real credit to HV and not once were they negative. To summarise I would say its a good holiday, lots of fun to be had - a good family holiday putting the kids first:-)))More

Just returned after an 11 night stay with family. Did visit this resort back in 2008 when the tropical hotel was accessible, this is now not allowed. You can walk through via the beach but fencing is now in place along the various paths and they will ask you to leave. I was not aware so a little disappointed and couldn't find any mention of this in the first choice brochure, but hey ho the palace is great. Rooms.....recent refurb makes them just what you want, can't fault them. Anyone complaining about noise? You're on holiday so expect some noise from the entertainment and people returning back after a night out, ie enjoying yourself Pools, lots of choice. Clean. Slides etc. the logging epidemic was not apparent through our stay however I did speak to someone at the airport who stayed at the tropical who informed me of a few incidents. The culprits were thrown out. I'm disgusted by this behaviour I really am but as said didn't happen for us. Food..it's all inclusive so anyone who has been on this package before should know what to expect. It was busy yes but always found a table and great choice of food I'd say. Plenty of choice, bars and restaurants..late breakfast was good when you need a lie in Entertainment. It's first choice and they try. Did activities in the day all great I'd say Illness......yes people were and we were a little. I think this us just something I expect now, certainly better than Egypt. Follow the rules of no water or ice, use the sprays located at the main restaurant and you should be ok. Food was always hot and clean in the cooking areas. Mosquito.....bitten once.....use a good spray.....there not rife like Egypt. To sum up....I'd of stayed longer if I could , which says something but you must understand when booking, the following. It's mainly English and you always get a few letting us down Yes teenagers are in groups, never caused me any issues but they do wander around in groups Kids are left unattended by irresponsible parents using foul language In peak season it is busy and cups, bottles, food etc does appear on floors round the pools and restaurants. The tattoo brigade is here in force. Two TVs in the main reception/bar area are on and watched by lots, English soaps, amazing!! Why go on holiday?? Improvements.....I'd recommend a dress code at lunch, ie t shirts no bare chests. No food round poolside,this I did find annoying and just lazy. Chips floating in the pool is not good anywhere Better air con in the main reception Had a good time but think this is more a three star plus. Doubt I will return More
