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.

Fantastic Resort, Lovely Rooms But Water Too Cold
Just returned from a 10 night stay. Sorry if I ramble on a bit, but I read reviews on hotels myself before choosing a hotel and like as much info as possible. So hear is what I thought. Transfer from airport 20 minutes, fast check-in, took our own luggage to the room as arrived in afternoon and from past experience you can end up waiting a while on your bags to arrive at your room. ROOMS: We were in block 2 & room 2229. Fantastic modern room with plenty space for family of 4. We have been on over a dozen all inclusive holidays and normally have to upgrade as not happy with the room, this was a very pleasant experience not to have to do this. Comfy beds & bonus of two TV's . We took usb sticks with films & programmes for the kids and was again delighted that we could use these on the TV's . Local channels quiet often loose signals, so I would recommend taking a usb with you. Hairdryer is in bathroom and cant be moved so you have to stand and do your hair. No ironing board or iron ( can hire them for a couple of pounds from reception ) Plenty of storage space. Room was clean on arrival but was not overly impressed with housekeeping during our stay as they seemed to just skim over your room . Balcony very small. Plenty of sockets. TIP, if you have lots of things needing charged, take an extension plug as only one socket with 24hr supply, the rest stop working when you take your key out and leave the room. Fridge very poor. Air con good. Walls are very thin, I would recommend ear plugs. FOOD: Buffet restaurant very busy & noisy. Food selection very good but did have to heat up in microwave most nights. You have to get your own drinks for bar which was a disappointment. I believe this hotel is closing for the season in a few week and the staff certainly looked as if they were ready for it as they were very slow. A-la-carte restaurants- we never tried as not a great choice, did not fancy anything on menu and don't like choosing days in advance what I would like to eat when you book. Chill out bar serve lovely toasties at lunch. My sons loved the pancake hut. Lunch is served in pool side area, good choice. SWIMMING POOLS: Firstly I would like to say , we never experienced any closures of the pools. The biggest let down for me was how cold the pool water was. With an average of 28 C a day all you wanted to do is have a dip to cool down, but the water was freezing. My two kids braved it, they are 8 & 6. But my heart went out to folk with younger kids and babies, just too cold. Perhaps they should be heated at this time of year. Indoor pool was just as cold. Plenty of sunbeds. free ice cream hut only open for a few hours a day and large queues again but lovely and worth the wait. They do have a carte dor ice cream hut, payable again but lovely. BEACH: I would recommend swim shoes as shingles at water edge, water was cold. Water sport available but have to pay. No digging in sand as turtles come in at night. Would of been good to know this before we left as would of saved some space in suitcase as we took buckets & spades. KIDS CLUB: Very good selection of activity's, my boys went to about 10 sessions during the day, were not interested in night time activity's. BARS: Most bars you have to wait in very long queue, but found a lovely barman at pool bar who took drink to our table, very much appreciated. ENTERTAINMENT: We did not really join in with much and did not attend night time shows, so cant really comment. Did enjoy the daily quiz around pool in afternoon. Kids enjoyed arcades room in afternoon ( you have to pay for everything ) most hotels we have been to in the past have free pool, table tennis, chess ect . Parents be warned, popcorn & candy floss on sale too. OUT & ABOUT: Sarigerme is a lovely little village on a few miles from hotel. We visited a few times and never felt harassed by shop owners. We dinned out at the Dolphin restaurant, and would highly recommend it, lovely steaks and very reasonably priced. We booked a trip with Basket Travel after reading reviews and yes we saved quiet a bit rather than booking through first choice. We did the mud baths, canal boat trip, had a lovely lunch looking over the ancient rock tombs & visited turtle beach. A fantastic day out. We heard lots of folk recommending the 12 island cruise but never got round to doing that. To sum this holiday up, we had a great time, best part for me was the rooms , worst part was how cold the water was. Maybe it's a minor complaint to some but sunshine and warm water it mostly what I look for in a holiday, would I return possibly if they have heated swimming pools. I don't know if it was just cause it was Oct we went, maybe this is not an issue in the height of the season.More

Holiday nightmare !!!!!!
Where to start !!! 14 yr old daughter slipped on a wet marble floor - no slippy floor signs - Serious accident and surgery required Unsympathetic hotel and customer services manager Quote... "we have hundreds of accidents here, what are we expected to do - It's been a tight economic year" Holiday reps were disappointing - Inattentive, unconcerned Safety concerns throughout the hotel noted. No re visit for sureMore

Would be excellent if it weren't for the uncouth, undisciplined, louts with feral children!
It's not often I feel embarrassed to be British because we have a lot to be proud of, but coming on holiday to the HV Sarigerme I so felt for the staff and management team having to put up with the behaviour of some of the residents, and more importantly their kids. More about that later. The hotel is an amalgam of two hotels that combined to become the HV Sarigerme several years back. We were booked a two week holiday in to the resort on the left hand side but asked to be upgraded straight away as the resort on the right seemed more upmarket and less crowded. The suite we had was lovely. Spacious with a separate room for the kids, all tastefully decorated. The restaurants served very good food and the choice was varied so plenty to choose from even for people with a picky diet. Decent pools and entertainment. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. We did on one evening decide to dine on the other side. Our meal experience at their buffet restaurant was hideous! No queues, just hordes of people jostling each other to grab what they could without any thought for anyone else. It really was mayhem so we decided to stick to meals on our side of the resort. The local village of Sarigerme is around a mile and a half away so is walking distance downhill but depending on the heat you may not want to walk back up! Plenty of market stalls and shops selling imitation clothes, watches, sunglasses, etc. Good for an afternoon off site. Prepare to barter and expect a bit of hassle. Don't be offended though, they are only trying to earn a living and if you tell them politely but firmly that you are not interested they will leave you alone. Now for the bad bit. Rumour has it that there is a website with a hotlist of hotels on it that teenagers have targeted to defecate in the swimming pools. This hotel, along with several other First Choice HVs are ones where the swimming pools are having to be regularly closed due to people pooing in the pool. Our pool was closed twice during our stay whilst the one on the other half of the resort seemed to be closed every other day. You can only blame the children so much, it's their parents that I blame. If they can't teach their offspring the difference between what is acceptable and what isn't then it's no wonder they behave as they do. The poor hotel staff do what they can. Even the management team are exasperated by it all and have tried numerous initiatives without success, which is a big shame because the hotel has so much potential, especially the right hand side, but is let down majorly by Brits behaving badly.More
Clean & Friendly but wouldn't return
We finally decided on HV Turkey after recommendations on Holiday Villages after friends loved the one in Tenerife. We settled for Turkey mainly because we hadn't been to Turkey before and it was one of the cheaper options out of all HV's. After reading all of the reviews just before travelling I was frightened I had made the wrong choice and almost changed booking. I have to say on arrival the coach journey was good in that only 20 minutes from the airport. When we arrived it was a little chaotic at check in but soon got our cards and made our way to room after being told our luggage would be brought down shortly afterward. The room itself was a kids den and it was absolutely lovely with all the required mod cons and in a lovely peaceful corner block. It was around 2pm when arrived and we were desperate to change and go for a dip but it took 2 and half hours before our cases made it to room which meant we lost half a day in reality. I would review this hotel as clean, staff are very friendly and the entertainment team work exceptionally hard - a real credit to the resort. The only thing I would add as a couple with a 5 year old son is the place is a little too big as he struggled to find friends he made the evening before etc and despite trying kids club didn't really make any to play with in the day. Also we like to experience local culture and went into the local town a couple of times but there isn't much to do outside of resort. The guests were all very friendly and we didn't see any trouble but without sounding snobby, if you don't have a body full of tattoos and/or football shirts then you don't feel that you really fit in. There were around 4 - 5 occasions when there was a code brown incident but they dealt with it very quickly. As I said the place is clean friendly and food ok (aimed at Brit palate most nights) so if you want a little bit of Blackpool in a hot country you will love this place but for us we wouldn't return to a HV again.

Chaotic but Nice
Holiday Village was a good holiday for children but no good if you want a lazy holiday around the pool. The pool were very busy and very slippy so be careful. Food was fine when you arrive but after a week or so you wanted fish and chips !! Meal times resembled a school canteen and so noisy, but what do you expect. There is not much to do once you leave the hotel, only a small road with various shops selling the same old Turkish wares, handbags, trackies etc. 15mins walk away. if you go on any trips book with Basket Travel in the village, not the reps in the hotel they are very expensive and the trips are the same. Ask for Ken at Basket Travel. overall a good kids holiday.More
