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.

My family and I stayed here May 2014. The hotel is huge, but still immaculately clean. I am not the sort of bloke who is into flowers, however, the gardens in this resort are simply gorgeous. The food was really good and had a good variety daily. Make sure you go and get pancakes from Sugar (if she is still working there) as they are the best Turkish pancakes we have ever had. Only reason this place didn't get 5 stars is because we have just returned from another resort that is better than this and even cheaper. Tip - book your excursions through Basket Travel in Sarigerme. Did three trips with them last year and still are head and shoulders over any other company we have used in Turkey.More

Great family holiday
The hotel itself is big with 5 pools and loads of space and as we went the week before half term it was busy. However this didn't stop the hotel being clean, the grounds immaculate and the room excellent. In the room itself we had 4 separate good quality beds perfect for our family-the mattresses weren't the usual holiday soft ones and the beds were all full size singles. The shower were excellent too-I do love a good shower :-) The food was pretty much all buffet style and was always fresh, plentiful and tasty. There was a good range available to suit all tastes and although the restaurant was always busy there was plenty of space. It was hectic eating though especially having to get food for 2 young children before you could get your own. Once you accepted it wasn't a relaxing meal it was fine. We discovered late on that you could order toasties down at the beach bar which was much much calmer. The food in the Al la carte was good but not really what it said on the menu (chicken satay was breaded chicken with a tomato sauce), perhaps be best to stick to the Turkish and do that well?! However it was excellent service and lovely to not have to get your own food :-) The pools and the slides were brilliant although a little cold when we first arrived (in a thunderstorm) they were warm by the end of the 2 weeks. The slides were only open limited times but that wasn't a problem for us. All of the floors around the pools were very, very slippery. They did put up lots of signs but I saw a lot of trips especially with running children. This is really a fault of the designers though and should be fixed. Other reviews complain about the lack of all inclusive saying it wasn't really all included. We didn't find any problem. You could get pretty much any (local) drink from 7 am - midnight. There was always bottled water available and often some left in the room along with a kettle, tea and coffee. Food was available almost constantly-a brief gap between 11 and 11.30 and then again between 5 and 6.30 (which caught us out when we arrived) but you can buy crisps etc if you wanted to. Ice cream was only available at limited times (3-5pm) but as it got busier they opened earlier. You could buy ice cream near the pool for around 5tl a scoop. If you took a taxi into sarigerme (15tl/Â£3 e/w) ice creams were super cheap as was the food and drinks at the bars. Kids club was fantastic for my 3 and 4 year old and they absolutely adored the entertainment-thanks live and loud. We'd definitely go back if we can scrape together enough money to go in school holidays :-)More
Fab family fun
We visited the first choice hv in July/august last year and had a fab time. We stayed in a suite which actually when booking worked out cheaper than a standard room. It was very spacious for a family of four and superb decor. The room was Cleaned once a day and because our girls like a nap in the afternoon the cleaner always made sure she came first thing so very happy. The girls attended the kids club and loved the different activities on offer especially the chocolate party. Although I thought it was a bit expensive but that's up to first choice to change. There was always something nice to eat so good choice of food. We particularly loved eating at the Turkish and Indian restaurants. We visited the spa and even though the massage was good the only downside was we should have had another treatment but they never offered it to us. I asked for it and they sort of shown me where to go and then just left us to it so we ended up just leaving. We had some photographs done and they were amazing. Would highly recommend. We originally was planning on only ordering one print but then when we saw the end result we actually got an album. The only negative was that at the time we went there was some silly social media campaign going around about seeing how many people could poo in the pools at all the first choice holiday villages so unfortunately the pool had to close a few times whilst we were. But this is no fault whatsoever to the hotel so please don't worry. It's some disgusting human beings who try and ruining things for others. The hotel was very professional and dealt with the situation ASAP.More

Great family Holiday
Just returned 2 days ago from a 10 day holiday here, could have stayed longer! The hotel is very clean, the staff work extremely hard to keep it that way. Couldn't fault the food in the main restaurant at all, always plenty of choice! Children were catered for well too! Although nice I thought the lunch time menu was very repetitive & not a great deal of choice for the kids! The salads are amazing though!!! The entertainment staff are fantastic & cater for all ages! As well as all the kids club activities their was other activities& entertainment going on most of the time too! Plenty of excursions on offer if you like that kind of thing. Sarigerme is about a 20 minute walk, not a big place but has shops & bars! Good bargains to be had! If I had to criticize about anything of this holiday it would be trying to get Sun beds! For whatever reason people felt the need to reserve beds at ridiculous o'clock! I was awake really early one morning so thought I would just wander down to the pool & was amazed at how many towels were on the beds already! If you don't get a bed before 7am you have no chance of getting round the pool! The hotel has a sign saying not to reserve beds before 8am but this is clearly ignored! All in all we had a fantastic holiday, our 3 children loved it. We travelled with 2 other families & had a fab time! I would recommend this hotel to anyone with family. Thank you Holiday village, Sarigerme for a fab holiday xxMore
