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.

Below average holiday. Had its fair share of both positive and negative points.
We visited Holiday Village Turkey (HVT) for a family holiday during June this year. The hotel itself was brilliant, as were the staff and facilities, but unfortunately there were too many negative points for this to be a truly amazing holiday. On arrival: On arrival to the hotel from our airport transfer we queued at reception to get our room key. The person at the desk was lovely and welcoming. We got our room keys and walked to our room. The hallways were long and all looked identical, meaning it was difficult in the first day to remember exactly where the room was. We were NOT allowed to take our own bags to our room. We had to have them handed to someone to be brought to our room later. When our bags were finally delivered, we had them brought into the room, and the person outside stood outside of the room, awaiting a tip. They just stood there until we handed them money, where they then walked away without saying a word. The room: The room was nice. A good size, including a TV, fridge, bath + shower combo, private outdoor area / balcony (we were outside, so it wasn't really a balcony) and AC. The room service people were very friendly. They were always smiling and happy to help. Annoyingly, the rooms electricity can only be activated when a keycard is in a slot in its own holder near the door, meaning you couldn't leave the AC on to return to a cool room, without leaving a keycard behind. I understand that it's supposed to be power saving, but its VERY impractical. It would have been nice to come back to a cool air-conditioned room. (It was easily circumvented. We just used a spare Tesco Clubcard and left it in the slot during our journey. It worked perfectly). The facilities: There was a lot to offer at HVT... for young children! The 5Live show and clubs were all aimed at younger children. There was virtually NOTHING for slightly older teens, apart from a poorly equipped, expensive amusement arcade. The pools were nice, but only available during the day. This is annoying if you're one for an evening swim. At least one of the pools could have done with being closed during the day - even if it was one of the smaller ones, and opened during the evening. They're all closed for cleaning. The pools were not heated, and some people may not like this. Personally, I saw this as a positive. It was TOO hot when I went. The pool was a nice relief! There are only one set of water slides. They're only open at certain points during the day, and are closed at all other times. This is irritating especially considering its one of the good things for older children. The hotel offers WiFi (in the lobby only), but you CAN'T call it WiFi. You are virtually unable to get a single connection on it unless you're there during early hours of the morning. Other times the lobby is full of people doing the same thing, meaning connecting is impossible. Any additional activities cost. Not a little bit either. It cost a LOT of money for additional things, such as jet-skiing or archery. I would expect at least some activities to be included in the price, but this wasn't the case. The beach was NOT very nice when we went. The sand gets too hot to walk on bare footed, meaning you need shoes on the beach. It is also closed in the evenings, but this is due to turtle migration and out of control of the hotel. The sunbed situation is ridiculous. It's NOT a joke when I say you'll be lucky to get a sunbed unless you're up at 6:00 AM reserving them. People are already up setting up their sunbeds at that point. They have nowhere near enough sunbeds for the amount of people, meaning you often go without a sunbed, which can be rather frustrating. Food: There was not much choice for food. Two places to choose from, one outside restaurant and one indoors. The food was all the same as over here (chips, chicken nuggets, fish), but they had their own dishes too, which was a good thing. It means there was food for all types of people. The problem was the food was almost identical most nights, meaning things got boring rather quickly. There was free ice cream, which is brilliant.... Well it WOULD have been - had it not been running for a mere 2 hours per day. We found this rather ridiculous. I know it would be in high demand, but only 2 hours. 4 hours would be perfect. Queues get too busy with everyone coming at the same time, which meant you wasted a lot of time queuing for ice-cream, which melted almost instantly. The BEST thing by far was the free drinks. Soft drinks and alcohol were all included in the price. Endless drinks was great for the busy, hot days. Best thing by far! Overall: The hotel was nice, but unfortunately there was too much to put it off being a great holiday. Pros: - Friendly welcome - Free unlimited drinks (soft and alcoholic) - Free ice cream (partly) - Wide range of buffet-style food - Lots of outdoor pools varying in depth for all people - Lots of activities for younger children. Cons: - Forced to leave baggage with reception to tip someone later - Free ice cream is only available for 2 hours per day - Some staff were rude and uncomplimenting - Electricity couldn't be left on in your room when you left your room - Not much for older kids - All extra activities cost. Nothing included - WiFi was useless. Couldn't connect until early hours of the morning - Food was the same on all nights - All pools closed at night - Waterslides only open for 2 hours of the day - Evening entertainment was loud and only really aimed at parents / young children - Beach closed at night (not the hotels fault though) - All corridors looked the same, meaning it was hard to find the room at first. - Nowhere near enough sunbeds - Connected to another almost identical hotel owned by the same company but couldn't use their facilities. Overall, it was a "meh" holiday. But all of this was easily fixable, and should they do so in the future, I would be sure to return!More

Lovely suite room for the family x
We stayed at the holiday village in early October and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. My 15 year old daughter felt that it was the best hotel we've stayed in!! Although my husband and I felt that a few things could do with a tweak. One of which being the adult only entertainment. Whilst Stevie did a fabulous job, we felt that the fact that younger children were there limited his potential and we felt that, as a family with an older child, we had no escape from the little ones!! The chill out bar was lovely and as was the balcony bar by the lobby. However, the lobby bar was often 'overtaken' by really large groups playing drinking games and shouting to each other from one end of their big table to the other!! Perhaps a larger family bar closer to the ampitheatre would resolve some of these issues. As would an adult bar for people 12 or 15 years of age upwards (similar to the cinema ratings).The a la carte restaurants were nice but visits to them very limited for people staying for 2 weeks- we had the same amount of visits allocated as those staying for 1 week! These really broke the mundainity of buffer style eating so this was a shame. Overall a good hotel with plenty to do and a fab entertainments team. More

An average hotel with the potential to be a great hotel
Positives: Very close to the airport for transfers without the constant flyovers. Pancake lady is worth her weight in gold. Beautiful pool areas. Rooms are very good especially if you have family as they partion, have 2 x tv's and a chalk board for the kids. Hotel manager at the time of our stay 'Urugu' was a wonderful man. negatives: Whilst the food was plentiful it was very repetative and sometimes cold. Main restaurant is a bit 'canteen like'. Too many cats ! Evening entertainment is in the conference room with no tables and chairs lined up in rows. The bar servicing this area is one chap behind a 'makeshift' bar with minimal choice and a queue that covered the entrance to the room. Pool area is very slippy. Hotel opens on to the beach but no beach bar or even sun beds unlike the neighbouring hotel. Dont use resident photographer. He doesn't utilise the beautiful outdoor areas and is very expensive. Dont use the hotel henna tattooist. ...my 7 year old son couldve done a better job and his charges start from Â£10. Pools so cold that I didnt go in. Whilst we had a good time it was mainly down to the company rather than the hotel. They were clearly on end of season wind down....though looking at other reviews was probably for the best as always able to get 8 sun beds together and no queue for pancakes and ice cream. An average hotel with room for improvement....go late in the season, when weather still great and less busy...More
Excellent Hotel - But Points to Note
I really had an excellent time at the holiday village. The complex has everything that you would need and has lots of entertainment. No holiday is 100% perfect we had the odd issue with some of the reps and weather but that wouldn't have put me off returning. What would put me off is that a holiday geared towards children should have quality pools and I have to say they do, thereâs more choice and sheer size of pools than you could possibly need. But beware they are so cold that in fact my daughter after an hour and half in the pool came out in such pain she wouldn't allow me to pick her up or touch her. She was so cold that her skin was on fire her lips had turned blue and we couldnât stop her crying, all we could do was let her walk herself back to the room crying and wrap her in a duvet. Once she warmed up was fine but that was the last time she went in the pools, they are really that cold and for this reason I wouldn't return. Itâs a real shame as every other aspect of our holiday i would say was brilliant. Unfortunately I canât overlook the pools.More
