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.

Visited with my 2yr old and 4yr old and found everything to be very child friendly. The only negative was the staff in the kids club. They are all very young with limited experience of childcare, and spent 20-30 mins every session making the kids line up against a wall to queue and wash their hands. The staff in the creche were better, but still very inexperienced. Will definitely return as the hotel itself was very clean and the food was delicious. More

This location is a must it has absolutely everything all in 1 place! Firstly the rooms are sparkling the cleaners are very friendly they left a towel swan and rose petals on our bed which was lovely. All the pools are amazing from fun packed water game and pool party ones to quiet and chilled ones. The entertainment was first class it had something for the kids and adults and the were never bored. The food was delicious, with a massive variety and a kids section with there on little tables. My kids were too old for the kids club but from what we saw they were having great fun all marching in a line with superhero costumes on and singing. We ventured into the little town of sarigerme a few times and was greeted with friendly bar staff and waiters who couldn't do enough for you. All in all this holiday was a great one and I would definitely go again so thankyou holiday village turkey. More

Return of the Mac
This is my 2nd visit to the Holiday Village Turkey, having been last year and enjoyed it so much (plus a good deal on the price) I returned for a second instalment. We stayed at the holiday village for 14 nights in a family at the end of the season October 15, we are a family of 4 with kids aged 3 & 8. My first review of the holiday village was quite in depth (feel free to read it!), so I thought I would focus on and abridged version with what has changed in the last year, both good and bad â It may seem that it is quite negative review bear in mind this is a return visit so Iâm being a lot more picky, this is still a great place to stay and we had a fantastic time. Iâll start with a brief summary THE GREAT - The Rooms, First Choice Entertainers, Kids Clubs and the Cleanliness. The GOOD - The Food, the Beach and the Location NOT SO GOOD â Pool side sellers, end of season wind down, Smoking location (Still) and the Ã la carte Restaurants (Still), queuing for food. Not in their control - the rain, other holiday makers! ROOMS â Glad to say no change here - The Rooms continue to be fantastic, exactly like last year . All the facilities you require - tv, safe and tea/coffee facilities load of space to store clothes. Plenty of plugs for all those devices you take on holiday! FOOD â The food continues to be good, never going to be 5 start when catering on mass but plenty of choice. 3e always managed to find something for us and the kids to eat. Breakfast now has the addition of a toastie maker (like a Panini press) â this was great and a top tip I took from one of the reps, instead of the very small strangely sliced bread, use half a baguette and make a Panini with it! Lunch seemed an improvement on last year, but still not as much choice as breakfast and dinner â Youâd struggle to go hungry though. Dinner remained something to look forward to, plenty of choice and the continued with their themed nights (Chinese, Tex-Mex, Turkish). They could do with a separate area to put the chips as this lead to large queues when you wanted something that was next to or just past the chips, having to queue with the hoards of people piling on the chips! Desserts remain something that look great but always taste the same, shame there isnât icecream at dinner for the kids (inside that is) Drink service at dinner remained hit and miss, another tip I gained from a couple â tip on the first night, always choose the same table (try and get there early) â youâll find the service improves! Ice cream hut â now has 4 flavours to choose from (banana, chocolate, vanilla & strawberry) Ã la carte â Still remained more effort than value, these were way over rated. Having been to all 3 last year, we went back to the Turkish one, which was the best of all 3 â it was pretty much the same you certainly wouldnât pay to go there! It remained that the buffet food was just as good and was less hassle â If you were a couple with no children or had them in a kids club it might make for a nice night out â but with kids it was more stress! DRINK â There were more self serve places to get water from than last year - all water was in bottles and you could pretty much help yourself and stock up either for your room or take on trips which was perfect. The alcohol remained Ok, watered down of course! Genuine Coke, Fanta Sprite for the kids. POOLS â No change here - you canât really get more pools in one area than this place! Plenty of pools and one with 4 slides (not exactly an aqua park but it was alright!), a pool for this kids (where mine spent all of their time). Still wish they had a splash park area for the infants to play in but they continued to test the pools regularly. Glad to report no pool closures during our whole stay! FIRST CHOICE Entertainers/Coaches/Kids Clubs â As I said before - AMAZING, no really amazing. The effort the entertainment team put in every night was outstanding. Yeah the entertainment was a little âvariety showâ but it didnât come across cheesy, it was well polished and good fun. It might have been because weâd seen some of it all before, but I have to say it wasnât as good as last year just didnât feel the team clicked as well â but no reflection on them or the effort they put in â itâs like watching your favourite film but theyâve changed the actor! This year the entertainment started outside in the amphitheatre â which Iâm guessing is the norm, but last year when we went it was all indoors â sadly after 2 night it rained and then all the entertainment went back inside â this caught the team on the hop a little and there were a couple of night where there was no screen up for the visuals. Kids clubs â We used these more this year, now my children knew what to expect, although my son (3) didnât want to go other than a couple of occasions (so we didnât force him). I largely donât know what they did (I just get the usual â Yeah had a good time can I go play in the pool now response) â But they said they enjoyed themselves! Family Games â With a few days of bad weather we went to try some of the family games â Ok they are not high budget but great for getting everyone involved. Enjoyed a game of rounderâs, smite and some 6 pin (they lost 4) bowling! In the bad weather we also played 10 pin bowling in the arcade, was a bit of fun to pass the time and for Â£10 for a family of 4 it was a bargain! LOCATION â Well of course the location hasnât changed! Beautiful area, beach it about 2 mins at the rear of the hotel, Sarigerme town is about a 30 min walk (or a 2min Â£4.50) cab fare), pretty small selling the usual fake goods, but cheaper than the hotel. SPA â Used the spa again for pre sun and post sun treatment â just make sure you haggle with them as their first price is always Â£10-20 more than you need to pay! OTHER INFO â Wifi was still hit and miss, seemed to get a good signal in the room, but nothing around the pool. THE NOT SO GOOD STUFF End of season wind down (my biggest gripe this year!)â So I know we chose to go at the end of the season and the team and staff are looking forward to going home, but the last 2 nights there was virtually nothing, and literally nothing on the Saturday when we were flying back, this meant that killing the time between 7pm dinner and 10pm transport with 2 young children (who were already upset about leaving) was frustrating. I appreciate itâs the end of the season but weâve paid the same and I would expect the same level of service no matter when you choose to stay. Queue for chips â Move them to a dedicate area to save those queuing who want something else! Smoking location â Letting people smoke by the entrance/exists when you have to walk through them to get your lunch Prices of trips â Cheaper if you go to a local travel shop (we used basket travel for our trips who were great) Pool side sellers â seemed to be more this year, offering the SPA, photos and water sports on the beach â They shouldnât be allowed to do this Other holiday makers - Generally people were great, you are on holiday after all â but we had 2 inflatableâs pinched from our bottom floor balcony (ones we purchased from home and took with us) and there was a scuffle in the function room one night (do people really need to drink that much and argue on holiday with children around?!). I have to say though it was dealt with very swiftly by the staff. TIPS â The TVs in room have USB slots, so take anything you want to watch on a USB, saves loading up the tablet like I did. Do all your shopping in Sarigerme or one of the markets, its cheaper than the hotel Take GBP (Â£) and a little Lira, we used GBP for everything as it was easier but I used Lira for the Taxis and tipping Use a local travel shop for excursion, we used basket travel and the trips were 30-40% cheaper. Tip staff early in your holiday rather than at the end â youâll then get better service! I can't see us going to anything other than a different holiday village holiday next year Thanks again First choice, and your entertainment team!More
Booked holiday a couple of months before we went despite my reservations on going to turkey. So glad we did now. Booked through first choice and the service we received from them was excellent. The trip from airport to hotel and checking in service was so smooth and gave us an excellent start to the holiday. The room was lovely and very clean and comfortable. The food choice and quality was very good and you could always find something nice to eat. We got to try all 3 a la carte restaurants as part of the all inclusive package and they were all excellent and we were looked after superbly by Salih the head waiter/maÃ®tre de who made our nights feel extra special. There is an excellent choice of swimming pools and you are also right on the beach. The staff are very friendly and the whole village very clean. The local village is a nice easy walk away and is excellent for shopping. There was always reps around to give you advice and the reception staff were always helpful. The only down side to the holiday was the weather but you cant do a lot about that. Besides you cant beat a good thunder storm abroad. We had an excellent holiday and would definitely go back again and use first choice again.More

Quiet Family Hotel
I stayed here in August with my wife and 8 year old son. The hotel is only a short trip from the Airport and is situated in a quiet area.On arrival we were checked in quickly and shown to our room. The room was very clean and to our surprise had sliding double doors which separated our young sons bed from ours (he even had his own TV and sofa) The room had tea/coffee making facilities and a small fridge. The food was very good with plenty of variety each day and the added bonus of bacon for breakfast on Sundays which you don't normally get in Turkey. We ate in all the Al la carte restaurants which were very good. These can be reserved a couple of days in advance through an electronic booking system in the hotel lobby. There is also a traditional Turkish pancake hut which is open in the afternoons. The site was very pretty with well kept gardens and pathways leading to the beach with a variety of different bars and pools to enjoy. Everywhere was kept clean and tidy and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. There are various shops on site and we found that the prices were quite reasonable and comparable with the shops in the local town. Around the pools there are plenty of sunbeds and we never had a problem getting them. But people do get up early to reserve places. The diving centre on site is absolutely brilliant and well worth a visit (see my separate review) Overall this was a very relaxed and enjoyable holiday.More
